This one just FLOWED out of me when I started to write it. And then I had to go meet some friends, so I jotted down my notes of where I saw it playing out in my head. I kept trying to pick it up for 2 weeks and it just was NOT working. I had it all in my head, but when I wrote it out, it was crap. I hate that! I should have just said screw it and stayed and written the whole thing. But oh well. It's all right now, after a little prodding. But it was like pulling teeth, trying to get this to come out. And then it didn't come out as perfect as it was in my head. I hope it's still enjoyable, though! This is a Hogwarts AU, though set several years after their graduation. That's also several years after the big battle, but there are still some death eaters that need rounding up.

Security: Public
Mood:sick sick

Am having terrible night. Everything was good all day and then it was just NOT. NOT GOOD. All of the not. I fucking hate being an emetophobe. It's bad enough being sick suddenly but freaking the hell out in addition at the same time is NOT a good combination. The ensuing irrational panic attack is almost worse than the v-ing part.

Also, those stupid people who say things like "you'll feel so much better afterward" are jerkfaces.


I need something happy. Someone send me something happy? Cute wombat pictures or something? Please?

Rating: G (so very weechester G)

Disclaimer: Not my boys!

Prompt: Nesting in the backseat of the Impala when sick is the best thing ever. I want to see a fic set entirely in the backseat. Stuff blankets, pillows, tissues, and anything else you can into the backseat with one or more of the boys and start your story!

Notes: Happy slightly belated birthday, [info]sinnerforhire! It's slightly different from the prompt, but I hope you still like it!

In a perfect world, tg would have been able to come up with a better title. But it's 1am and this needs to get out of my head and I hope I haven't made too many terrible typos. Sorry in advance!


Title: In a Perfect World
Author: tarotgal
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: none (Gen)
Disclaimer: Not my characters. Seriously. I make no money from this.
Prompt: Dean wears hearing aids. He's not totally deaf, he doesn't sign at all (or not very much), he's just hard of hearing. And he usually takes his hearing aids out at night to sleep. But that means he can't hear Sam sneezing in the middle of the night, and doesn't realize that Sam is miserably sick until Sam wakes him up in the middle of the night, feverish and shaky.

My weekend was awesome. It's so rare that I have a day where I just feel good the whole day. Warm, awake, and happy with no downer or sad/depressed moments or any health problems mixed in. And I ended up having two of them in a row. It's been an excellent weekend--one of the best I've ever had. I've just felt so... good, you know? It's really rare for me.

I just finished Sons of Anarchy.

I haven't cried this hard at a TV show since the end of SPN Season 5. I seriously lost it. It was beautiful, however much my heart just got ripped out.

Title: Aches and Pains
Author: tarotgal
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG-13 for swearing and violence
Disclaimer: Not my characters! Not making money!
Prompt: Sam always powers through his colds, because there's usually a job to be done, and he's not going to let something like getting sick get in the way of that. He's up, he's dressed, he's researching and hunting baddies.
So when Dean finds Sam still in bed, wearing the same sweatpants and t-shirt he was wearing last night, he knows it must be really bad.

I started this fic for last year's meme, wrote some of it in September in a journal, lost the journal, went looking for the journal this month, found it, and finally finished the fic.

Title: Pressing Pause
Author: tarotgal
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Not my boys! No money made!
2014 meme prompt: Dean is getting a cold. He sneezes once. Then twice. Then three times...Hey, is there a pattern developing here? Apparently Dean has come under the influence of _____ (A curse? The Trickster? Crowley?), so that each time Dean has to sneeze, the number of sneezes keeps increasing by 1. And as the sneeze count grows higher and higher, Dean tries harder and harder to fight off the sneezing...of course to no avail.
2015 meme prompt: More fun sneezing curse ideas. Mix and match! -the number of sneezes increases by 1 each time
Author Notes: Thank you to [info]cowboyguy for the amazingly helpful beta. This is my first attempt at writing Charlie, and the first draft was a complete and utter mess and failure. Hoping this revised version is much better. That awesome line there in the middle of the fic? That one’s all cowboyguy’s ;-)

Subject: Home Sweet Home!
Security: Public

I got home yesterday and thought I'd eat some lunch and then get a start on laundry. I did that. And then, at 8pm, I woke up. I crashed HARD. It was the most exhausting conference I've been to yet, draining physically and emotionally. My legs hurt all over still, as does my foot from where a car started to run it over on Sunday. The attempt destroyed my shoes, so I have to go shoe shopping today at some point. But I also have laundry. And unpacking. And some small swaps. And catching up on email. And registering 500 books for an upcoming book festival.

I'm utterly thrilled to be home, though. I missed my house and blankets and frige and my things so much. It's so nice not living out of a suitcase finally!

Oh, and starting a certain meme. Is everyone ready?

Subject: Home... the first time!
Security: Public

It has been an excruciatingly long and busy week. I was dogsitting/housesitting all week. And even though I love the three little guys so much, they are exhausting, especially when they keep waking me up at 3am and 6am. Luckily, I remembered I had earplugs, so it was just a matter of trying to sleep through the guilt of not hearing them, knowing they were upstairs barking. I smelled so strongly of dog. I was covered in dog. I felt so yucky. I went to my house at 7am on Saturday morning and took a long ass shower and changed into clean clothes that didn't smell like dog and it was GLORIOUS! It only lasted until 11am though when I went back to the house after my library volunteer shift and run to the bank and then I was immediately covered in dog again. Yesterday I went into work to do conference stuff. Today I went into work again to get stuff done. I am actually feeling quite good about my level of preparedness right now, even though I've not yet packed. I got home from work a little before 8pm today and had dinner and started my MANY loads of laundry to get the dogness off all the things I owned. I've got a couple of "I need to pack this" piles. But right now I just want to bask in the glory of BEING HOME.

I love my home. I missed my home. I love that it isn't covered in oily dog fur, for one. For two, I love my blankets and pillows and Samoose stuffed animal on my couch and my house temperature EXACTLY where I want it to be and my food here at home and all my things! I missed my things.

Oh, but I have a new thing. To reward myself for working two extra days this week and surviving dogsitting, I bought myself the new Hawkeye Pop figure. Now I have no excuse and MUST own Coulson so they can bob their little heads at each other adorably. Yeah. I really, really needed that. Thank you, local comic book store (I only went in to buy a comic as part of the Star Wars swap I'm running right now and I left with the comic--which they had in stock YES!!-and Hawkeye and some Game of Thrones buttons for the other swap I'm running right now. Great success. I have no regrets about breaking my rule, especially as I got a bonus for the dogsitting because I was a last minute fill-in, so that bonus more than covers the entire purchase). Anyway, yeah, Pop!Hawkeye is adorable.

I'm watching Bloodline on Netflix. Is anyone else? I'm not really loving it, but I like it. I'm on episode 10 of 13, I think. So I'm nearly done. I might save the rest to watch on my trip if I need something to take my mind off work.

Also in the taking mind of work department? MEME! I made the silly graphic for it yesterday. And I've got a document of prompts going already. I hope you'll all join me in a week or so for some meme goodness when I'm back home!

HOME. I love my home. So nice to be back, albeit briefly.

I knew immediately how I wanted this to end, but I had such a hard time figuring out the presentation topic that I ended up asking a friend of mine who is a lawyer for lawyery-type words and possible court cases. She did me one better and handed me 20 pages of a briefing with notes scribbled all over to put the language into normal terms I could understand. But that specific case didn't work for my fic, plus it was way off with the timeline, so I ended up coming up with one on my own anyway. But I used lots of the terms she gave me. I probably got everything wrong. But the course case isn't the point of the story. The sneezing is! So I hope that you like this! Sorry again for the long wait in getting it to you.

I ended up rewatching the entire series of Merlin while writing this fic. Not sure it helped much. LOL But it was still a fun story to write. I had a mental image immediately of poor Merlin and wrote the fic around it. Hope you like it!

I set this during Christmas 2006, which I wrote about a little in this fic last year. So I had to work within that timeline (so no Sin/Ducky this time). I'm sorry this is SO late for a Christmas fic, but I hope you like it anyway. It's such a pleasure to work more with these characters and flesh out their stories more.
