Subject: Discussions that happened around me today & my new obsession

Tonight at my meetup (which was PAINFUL to head off to; all I want to do is write):
Friend (woman) on my right:
Friend (woman) on my left: Bless you!
On my right:
On my left: Bless you again!
On my right:
On my left: Bless you! Wow, you got all three!
On my right: I almost always sneeze in threes.


Today at work, all three people (all women) in the conference room were sick with colds, though two worse off than the others. So there was a lot of talk amongst them about best cough drops and types of tissues and lotions for noses. And there was a lot of sneezing though, honestly, not enough to be distracting. I think it probably just feels like a lot more when it's you doing it. This happened:
Coworker 3: Goodnight! See you tomorrow!
A minute later
Coworker 3:
Me: It's not tomorrow already.
Coworker 3: I forgot something really important. Goodnight!

And then this discussion happened at the end of the day:
Coworker 1 (to me and Coworker 2): Did you guys enjoy the constant chorus of sneezing happening all day today?
Me:

Me: <says nothing; unable to think of what a normal person's answer would be to that question>
Coworker 2: Was there sneezing? Honestly, I didn't even notice!
Coworker 1: Are you kidding? All we did was sneeze all day.
Coworker 2: Who?
Coworker 1: Me mostly, but also Coworker 3 and also Coworker 4 a little. I can't believe you didn't hear! These walls are so thin I can hear everything that goes on over here.
Me: I heard, but it really wasn't distracting. Sorry you're sick.
Coworker 1: We don't have fevers or anything, it's mostly just sneezing. I felt like I was sneezing all day. The biggest sneezes I've ever sneezed. I mean, I had tears in my eyes some of them were so strong. I'd just get this feeling and my face would twitch <DEMONSTRATES FACIAL EXPRESSION> and I'd be like "uhhh... oh God... oh God... gonna sneeze..." and then it would just be like that forever and I'd be waiting until finally the biggest sneeze, really, the biggest ones I've ever sneezed.
Me: <HOW DOES A NORMAL PERSON REACT TO THIS LEVEL OF DESCRIPTION???> Awwww, I'm sorry. Poor Coworker 1!
Coworker 1: I know you're sensitive to strong smells. I'm going to spray this whole can of Lysol over the entire conference room and wipe everything down. Just a heads-up.
Me: Thank you!

So, yeah, I'm not usually into women's sneezes but that much talking about sneezing? Yeah. Not fair ;-) What boring lives normal people must lead for that not to be even the least bit exciting.


On only slightly related news, I am in a steady puppy love relationship with my new novel. I'm infatuated with it and think about it all the time. All I want to do is spend time with it and nurture it. I'm entirely obsessed. I'm also contemplating taking a couple days off work this week to write. I'm obsessed. And addicted. And I've been walking around with this STUPID grin all day thinking about the novel--and not even the graphic parts of it, just it in general. At the meetup tonight, I finally took my mind off it (talking Remus/Sirius and Draco/Snape/Harry will do that to me) but then we started planning our upcoming Death Eater High Tea event and someone mentioned bringing Napoleons and I was like "Wait, did you say Napoleons?" and she was like "Yes!" and I went all warm and giddy inside because my main character is a baker and her safeword is Napoleon. So I went right back into that headspace again.

Subject: Sidetracked
Security: Public

So... I got sidetracked again.

Yesterday was MISERABLE for me. Twice within a week I've had major digestive issues that I simply shouldn't be having, given what I eat. The first time, I figured my stomach was just messed up after the day of not eating properly/at all. But yesterday there was no excuse. And it's been bad all week, but yesterday after work was just plain miserable. So I spent a lot of time doing nothing but reading. I finished the gay hockey erotica novel I bought a while back thanks to BookBub. And on the last page was mention of the author's BDSM novel that had won some award. So I looked it up. Straight BDSM is sometimes my thing, though I prefer gay. What isn't my thing is the Texas setting and the rodeo circuit. But there was a sample available, so I gave it a read and suddenly couldn't stop reading. I tried switching to other books I had on my tablet, but it was no good. I had to find out what happened next to these characters. So I ended up buying the book. Gah. And I'm about 35% done now and still liking it, though a few of the descriptions are a little much for me, especially the part where they eat a steak dinner at a restaurant together. Ew. Steak. LOL

But that got me to thinking... I could totally write one of these. And then, BOOM, an original character jumped into my head. And then a scene. And then another scene. And another. And today I started writing it. And I think it's not half bad at the moment. I tried writing actual commercial romance/erotica once and it was an utter failure as I hate writing to a formula. But this... this one is actually fun to write. And it's a different sort of twist to things. I think it might actually work. I'm kind of excited about it. Look at me writing het erotica! Who'd have thought? Okay... it's not exclusively het, but that's the main story at least. Guess we'll see what happens.

On another note, I'm doing Thing-a-Day February. It's been tough so far doing things each day. Some days I want to do many things but I have to stop and save them for other days, or I'll run out of days. Which kind of goes against the spirit of making things. But I think it's also a fun experiment to see if I can create something every single day for a month, and to see if I get more creative or more freedom when creating because of it. So far, only 2 of my 7 finished days have been stories (one Deanfic posted to the birthday meme and one Strokes fic I haven't posted anywhere yet because I can't think of a good title and I'm not sure where it lies in the timeline yet). I've really been in a Strokes mood lately, actually, trying to polish up a few of Sin's stories for the collection. I workshopped one at roundtable on Wednesday and it went over well. I got some great feedback on things to change from everyone... except from the stupid idiot whose work I don't get (you can't call a story a memoir if you're not actually IN THE STORY!). That guy tore my piece apart and kept saying things like how Sinclair was dangerous and could have killed somebody. What??? I don't know. He didn't seem to have made any notes on my copy, so whatever. I'm feeling good about the changes I'm making based on other comments and things that occurred to me as I was reading it out loud. And then I went and wrote an Olly story. Yeah. I love my OCs.

Anyway... yeah. Writing. It's good. I like it.

So... [info]gingerdean asked me to list a couple of my all-time favorite sneezes from movies or tv.

I had a hard time remembering them all and then choosing just a couple. And I'd love to hear what other people would choose! Remind me of great ones I've forgotten! Tell me about ones I never knew of!

Reply with one of your favorites!

Subject: I feel like answering questions
Security: Public

I don't know... I just feel like answering questions. Anyone got any for me?

Here, I'll start you out:
Question: Where is my giftfic?
Answer: Almost done! I've finished 3 of the remaining 6. 2 others are in progress. I wanted to have this whole thing done in January... but now that's looking... unlikely.

Question: What color sheets are on your bed?
Answer: Green, right now. But tomorrow I will be switching them out for beige and red plaid.

Question: Why are you home on a Saturday night instead of out at dinner with the bands after the concert?
Answer: In all my running around today, I kind of forgot to drink. And I didn't eat much. At some point, my body rebelled and insisted I go straight home. Where I can be dizzy and bloated and in pain alone. Yay for living alone.

Question: How was your day?
Answer: Totally worth the ow I am feeling now. Except I bought so much. I have a new t-shirt now (oops), new slashy fanart (Harry/Draco), and new CDs and Jared TWG let me special order something from his Etsy store and he made it in the colors of the asexual flag for me, because he is awesome. I can't wait to put it up on my wall! And the music was SPECTACULAR even though 5 songs on my "cry list" were played (including the Jack/Ianto song I love). There was a great new fangirl song I'd never heard before and so many of my favorites were played along with new ones I hadn't heard--everything from Sherlock to muggle music to songs about bisexual Ginny Weasley. Good times. The Ace meetup was great as well, but I wish I could have spent more time there. It was just too busy a day.

Question: Pick an unfinished story at random and post a few sentences.
Answer: Um, that's not a question. But here you go anyway:

Though Qui-Gon’s tone was light, Obi-Wan was not swayed by it. He still looked just as nervous, and he shook his head, staring up into Qui-Gon’s eyes to show his earnestness. “It won’t be just a sneeze or two. It will be constant, strong, nonstop sneezing. I might not be able to say my part. I might not be able to do anything but…” his voice died away with shame and uncertainty.

“Sneeze,” Qui-Gon finished for him. Obi-Wan nodded in agreement, looking down at the floor. “I must admit I don’t like the sound of it, but it is too late to back out now so I will think of something.” He sighed. “I do wish you had picked a less awkward time to reveal this allergy of yours. You really should pay attention to the part of the ceremony that deals with honesty.” Obi-Wan blushed as Qui-Gon caressed his cheek to let him know he was not angry with him. “We will try to get through the ceremony quickly and when it comes to the candles… try to hold them closer to me than to you.” Obi-Wan nodded again.




Got a question for me? Ask away! I'm in the mood and feeling kind of ow still...

Subject: Pride
Security: Public

I just watched Pride. All I knew about it going in was the basic story (a gay & lesbian group supporting the miners in the UK in the '80s) and how the DVD cover in the US was edited to omit the gay & lesbian banner from the front... which is freakin' hilarious because the title is pretty obvious in and of itself, even if the hope was to market it to a mainstream audience. I had no idea about the brilliant cast, so seeing both Bill Nighy and Andrew Scott was a great and pleasant surprise (Imelda Staunton was amazing as well), but the whole cast was spectacular. And the movie itself was EXACTLY perfect. Well done to everyone involved in it. Well done.

Okay, so I'm a wee bit biased, considering my Mom worked for union organizers and I was brought up to believe in fairness and equality and to help people who need it. I'm an unapologetic left wing Hufflepuff. And this movie spoke to my heart so strongly. I loved every bit of it. I cried, like, a dozen times throughout with happiness (and, okay, a moment or two of not so much happy when I may have shrieked or gasped). I love that this story was told, and the way it was told absolutely just stole my heart.


On a mostly unrelated note, I watched Geography Club for, like, the 8th time the other day. LOL And I'm marathoning Merlin again. Oh! Last night I watched Zodiac. OMG could there have been more amazing actors in that? What a cast! And I saw Whiplash in theaters on Wednesday. It was emotional and intense and made me quite glad that I was rubbish in band class. LOL

Tomorrow's going to be a terribly busy day. I'm going to be rushing from event to event without a second to spare or eat or stop. Everything's timed down to the second. I'm pretty nervous about that. But, if all goes well, I'll be volunteering in the morning at the library, then going to my first Ace meetup in DC, then back to VA for a 5-hour concert with some of my favorite WRockers from all over the east coast, including a friend I haven't seen in over a year. There's going to be a lot of Harry Potter music, Sherlock music, all-around geek music. Good times. Hope TWG plays his Merlin song... I've had it stuck in my head for three days now. Whoops, there it goes again...

I'm marathoning All Creatures Great and Small before it goes off Netflix Streaming after 1/31. I'm only nearly through season 3 (of 7) and I won't be able to watch much this weekend. So there's no hope in finishing. But I'm really enjoying watching it. I loved the show as a kid; it made me want to be a vet, for some reason. Now that I watch it, it makes me NEVER want to be a vet! LOL

Anyway, there's a lovely sneeze because of a small cloud of powder from the James Herriot character in season/series 1, episode 5. I might have watched it, like, a dozen times. (It's around timestamp 32:00)

I'm in the middle of season/series 3, episode 13 right now. And James has a cold. And he sneezes over and over and over and over and sniffles and sneezes some more. It's heavenly.There are some older men who are sick as well, and there's a good bit of talking about getting sick as well in the first third of the episode.

If you have Netflix streaming, I highly recommend giving the episode a watch before it goes away in a week. OMG James with a cold is so delightful. I might just have to buy the DVD set sometime.

Subject: Bad Birthday Baking: a mini-meme for Dean's birthday!
Security: Public
Tags:meme



Prompt: It's Dean's birthday. One year, while living in the bunker, Dean is off in the garage working on the Impala because he wants to relax. But then he notices that he hasn't seen Sam all morning, and Sam usually comes in at least once just to hang out. So he goes in search of his brother and eventually finds Sam in the kitchen, where Sam is trying, but completely failing, to make a birthday cake. Because we all know Dean is the real chef in the family.

Your task is to create a fill for this one prompt. [info]cowboyguy sent it my way and, instantly, I was pulled in 4 different directions for how this could go. I'd love to see what other people do with it as well! Create art or write a short comment fic based on this prompt. Post your creation as a reply to this post on January 24. Be sure to comment and enjoy the other fills as well!

Will a demon interrupt the festivities? Is Sam's mind on something other than the recipe? Will they just jump in the Impala and go out for pie instead? Let's see how many different, failed birthday cake attempts we can get for Dean. Bonus points for hurt/comfort and super bonus points for sneezing (though neither is required). Will there be angst? Fluff? Pr0n? You decide!

Note: Before the 24th, all comments to this post will be screened so that no fics/art accidentally slip through before Dean's birthday. I will unscreen and reply to whatever comments/questions get posted.

I'm not going to do the write-up like usual this year, because I don't have the time or energy to go through and reread everything in order to choose my best, favorite, worst, least appreciated, etc. But I am going to write a short summary. It was a good year of fic-writing. I'm happy to see such an even distribution of ratings; this was the first year I kept track of that and the sexual content within my fics. Obviously, May was again my heaviest month for fics, because of the Harry Potter fest I write a story a day for. Without the snow drabbles, I only managed to write ONE fic just for me. Which kind of sucks. But I did fill one or two of my own prompts, so I guess that sort of counts as well. I'm happy with a lot of the fics I wrote and for hosting two comment fic memes this year as well as participating in others. I'm super proud of November; though I didn't get any fics posted that month, I did a great deal of writing.

In 2015, my writing goals are:

  • I want to finish my 12 Fics in 12 Days project, which I'm sorry is taking so long.

  • I want to have at least one thing to workshop every month at Writers' Roundtable, even if it's something old just to have something to share

  • I want to edit and post my NaNo fic.

  • I want to edit and write a lot more Strokes stories. I've been thinking about those boys a lot lately and I wish I had more time to write them... so I want to make time for them and self publish a small volume of stories of theirs for my own sake.

  • I definitely want to do another comment fic meme in April! I hope everyone will join me in it!

  • I want to keep track in a spreadsheet of all the fanfics I read this year.

  • Speaking of reading fanfic, I want to be MUCH better about leaving feedback after reading, even if it has to be super quick.

  • I want to get into some new fandoms and write for them.

  • And... this is the big one... I want to pick up at least five unfinished fics, finish, and post them. I have hundreds of fics just sitting about, needing attention. I'd love to share them, but I have to finish them in order for that to happen. For this, finishing chapters of chapterfics counts as well ("Too Many Cooks", I'm looking at you).

I woke up at 7:30 this morning (having gone to bed around 2) to find it was SNOWING! I checked the website and we weren't opening until 10. YES! More sleep! I slept until 9 then woke up and started to get dressed. Then I checked the website again and we weren't opening until noon. YES! More sleep! I slept until 10:30 and then got up. Still opening at noon. I got dressed. Still opening at noon. I had breakfast. Still opening at noon. I went out and cleaned off my car, got my lunch ready, and packed dry shoes and socks to change into at work. And I checked the website one last time. CLOSED! So now I'm all ready to go out and it's a SNOW DAY! SQUEE!

Which means a quick snow drabble of some sort and then lots of cleaning and writing!

Apparently cleaning off the car is what did it. I should have gotten up and cleaned off the car first so I didn't have to go through all that waiting. LOL Oh well. I think I still have library volunteering tonight, so my car is cleaned off and ready for that. And I'm dressed. Which is also good :-)

PS- Just got back from the dentist. They fixed me up. I was not looking forward to going back to work, but this was a worse way to spend a Monday morning. But I'm okay now... though as the numbness wears off, the pain is on its way. Ow.

So I had big plans for today... getting a lot done on my last day of the holidays. I'm behind in cleaning, behind in writing, and my daddy made me a pie I was looking forward to having a piece of today.

I was eating lunch and suddenly one of my teeth just fell out. I kind of freaked. I haven't eaten anything since, and I need to call my dentist first thing in the morning. But, yeah. WTF? My printer ran out of ink last night and I thought I had a backup... but I don't. I discovered my rug is big enough for my couch but not my coffee table. I'm still behind on cleaning and writing and, have I mentioned, my TOOTH JUST CAME OUT WHILE I WAS EATING?!! ARG!

So it's been a crappy day so far. I'm thinking of taking a shower and maybe going to get printer ink. I didn't want to leave my house today, but I'm freaking out and I think I need to keep busy.

Seriously. This sucks.

So, this is my first GG fic. The show is so dialogue-heavy that this fic sort of ran away from me in that regard. It jumps around between Jess and Rory and takes place during the 'That'll Do, Pig' episode that I've now watched 4 times over the past two days. LOL It's sort of an alternate version of that episode, though I'm now convinced that Jess does sound a little stuffy when he says some of his lines. heehee I hope you like it!

With apologies to Lady K's usericon, here's a Torchwood fic. I ended up watching half the series 1 episodes and a few series 2 episodes while writing this, because I needed to remember their voices. I feel pretty rusty writing this, so I hope it's not too terrible. And I hope you enjoy it!! :-)
