Final-fucking-ly, right? Yeesh. I'm almost...ashamed? of how long it's taken me? But on the other hand...this is how long it's taken me. I just dunno.

Anyway - thank you, all, who are still reading, for continuing to read. I do appreciate your long-suffering.

I'm going to make a 'personal' post tomorrow and talk about some random things, but for now, this is it. [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens did the tidying and polishing, as always. Thanks! :)

Hullo, all.

It's the wettest, rainiest spring *ever*. I love it, but *man*. My basement's never going to dry out. My mint, blackberry canes, and assorted other things are thriving, though.

So, I talked in my last post about my Aunt dying, and about the recordings I had that I was listening to. I made a little mp3 out of one of them. )

Also, I posted an AU Steve/Bucky fic about Steve the cat-rescue/artist and Bucky the vet who loves cats. A pre-relationship kind of thing I intend to expand. It's only at AO3 - i'm being so lazy. Trap-Neuter-Release.

So there we go, that's all i got. :)

And I'm tired of it.... )

So, there's that. In better, or at least, more interesting news...I organized a donation thing at my work for a local food bank, and we raised 150 dollars, which equals 750 meals for kids, seniors, and families in the Ozarks. That was pretty cool.

I also got a dozen or so blackberry cane seedlings in the mail from the Conservation dept., and I thought i had kind of killed them (they lived on my back porch in a bucket for two weeks), but I got them in the ground last week and they're thriving! My milkweed is coming up great, too, for the monarchs.

And last but not least, I posted another bit of 'Cracktrailer' fic over at AO3 - it's a pre-Crash 'verse 'Jason and Christian in the last months of high school' thing. I...shall link that momentarily when AO3 is back up.

And it's up! Alma Mater.

Hi, people. Apologies for the long-ass wait and...this is not the last chapter.

I'm just so irritated with myself and how fucking *slowly* i'm writing, anymore, that i was like 'screw it, this is a good place to break'. So I did. So here you go.

As always, thank you, DH - you are the ultimate beta. :)

Guys, it's a little embarrassing how ga-ga I am for Bucky Barnes. And, to be honest, for Sebastian Stan. The man is fucking adorable. ANYWAY...some of you have probably seen the head-canon he posted about Bucky and his backpack (seen in the Civil War trailer....)

And it got me thinking, and so...to writing. So, here - a little under a thousand words about...all that.

Hullo, flisties.

Just thought i'd give a wave. I don't post much, I know, unless I'm updating something, and I should probably do a wee bit *more* posting but.... I feel as though my day to day is not variable enough, nor interesting enough to make posts about. And I'm not much into random rumination....

But, here we go. :)

TV i'm watching.... )

So - anybody watching these? :)

I'm also working on the last chapter of Yesternight, and on a Steve/Bucky AU fic, and on various other bits and bobs. And looking forward to being able to have my windows open all day and all night. And having health insurance for the first time in ever (plus dental!!).

So, dear flist people - how are you all?

Wow, hi, and holy damn, people. Three months? I'm so sorry! Sheesh. At last, though, eh? And i'm pretty sure that there is only one more chapter after this one, so - here it is, the penultimate chapter of my rather 'epic' Space AU!

*does a little dance*

[livejournal.com profile] darkhavens of course did the beta-ing. :) She's awesome.

So, here we go, thank you my so-patient readers, we are almost there!

A very blessed Season to all of you out there on my flist! Whatever you're celebrating - even if it's just the end of the work week - may you be happy in it!
*smooches and blessings and hugs and love for you all*

It's been a very weird December for where I live. Up into the seventies about 2/3rds of the time, and then some nights down below freezing, only to have it go up again! We also had rain, lightning, and thunder a few days ago. The animals - and the plants - don't know what the hell is going on. But at least my heating bill is small!

I hope to have the newest chapter of the Space AU out *soon* - like, in a few days. This will be very close to the last chapter - very possibly, the penultimate chapter of the story! Thanks, everyone, for sticking with me.

I leave you with our Xmas tree this morning (the black lump is Annalee-the-dog's head) and my very favorite Xmas carol. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Yule Tree! )

Hullo! Suddenly, we are in 'homg, it's freakin' cold out there!!' mode. While my work's thermostats are like some kind of insane roller coaster. I wear fleece leggings and a skirt and two or three layers of shirts and fuzzy socks and boots and *freeze*, and the next day i'm sitting there wondering if i can go in the bathroom and strip off a layer or two.

Just *leave the thermostats alone*, guys. Sheesh. No wonder I keep getting sick. (Well, that and the fact that the 'cleaning crew' they hired don't actually *clean anything*, as witness the little bits of paper and things i put in random places around my desk/shelf. Four days later, they are still there, in plain damn site. And wow, is that the little drift of pencil shavings someone spilled two weeks ago? Yup, still there. ARRGH.

Anyway - herein is part three of the 'Bucky is back and recovery is not linear' fic i work at on and off. Again, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for her excellent and effortless beta-ing. Thanks, bb! :)

To those of you who practice, and for everyone else - Happy Halloween!

It's grey, chilly and drizzling here - a typical Missouri Halloween, heh. I have more memories of trick or treating in my winter coat than anything else.

But it's still quite lovely, and I have spicy candles burning and some candy just in case, I've lit a votive to those who've passed on and left a small offering for the Fair folk and any wandering shades. So I'm all set for a quiet night.

I am, once again, watching 'Baby', and omg, it just keeps getting better. So many tiny details, so many wonderful moments, I just.... The boys just driving, eating, talking, *laughing*. They are in their element, they are, as Sam says, *home*, and it's so wonderful to see what the life of hunter - *their* life - was and is. It's sad, but also sweet, and ultimately it's what made and shaped them, and continues to inform them. And it is lovely.

I'm also listening to the song Young!John was playing (Someday Soon, sung by Judy Collins in 1969) and the lyrics are so *very perfect*. It's like they were written for Mary. No wonder she liked that song. Plus, you know - Judy Collins. What a honeyed voice! I'm going to share the lyrics below - they're lovely.

So, my flist - what are you doing tonight? What was your favorite thing about the episode? I think my favorite was the green cooler and its multiple uses. :) Also, Sam and Dean just being *brothers*, and Castiel (off screen) in Sam's room, binge-watching 'Orange is the New Black'. Enjoy the night! Be safe! Blessed be!!

So blow, you old Blue Northern, Blow my love to me.... )

I know it's been a *very* long time, and i am so very sorry. Things in my life are making me not focus on - or not be rally *able* to focus on - writing as much as i want (and need), and that sucks.

And i may post about these things, or i may not, but rest assured, this story *will* finish. Thank you, all, my loyal readers - i do appreciate it.

And thank you, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for always coming through on the beta.

So! I wrote a D/s fic for a Steve/Bucky challenge over at AO3, and the fic authors were just revealed! So I wanted to post it. Go read *everything* at the Summer Lovin' Fic Exchange. All the fic are D/s, all are Steve/Bucky.

The fic *for* me is Brooklyn (We Go Hard), by anseladamsfan. A little rough play, a little bondage, a little delight...:)

Myself, I wrote, as per requested, a Medieval AU, with Sergeant Templar Stiofan and Master Fixer Mason Apprentice Jacopo, in 13th century Italy. Some bondage, some spanking, some flogging...perhaps a little blasphemy. :) If you're into that, well - here we go.

Also at AO3.

Beta'd, as always, by the delightful and dedicated [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens. Thank you, bb!

Summary: A Sergeant in the order of the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon (or Templars), Stiofán has travelled from his home in Ireland to Italy, to assist in the raising of a new church and Templar headquarters, under the auspices of brother Knights Templar Bonvicino. Stiofán is steadfast, pious, and dedicated, and his work as architect and artist is invaluable to the endeavor.

Jacopo is an Apprentice to the Master Fixer Mason, cutting stone to fit seamlessly with stone, an exacting and difficult job, and one he does flawlessly.

Both of them discover something in the other that leads to distraction, to temptation...to sin.

Just a little update on things. And a meme. Haven't done one of *those* in a long time. But [livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose and [livejournal.com profile] trishsabooms challenged me, among others.

Ze Challange Grande is to pull seven lines from the seventh page of your WIP. Then tag seven writers. I won't be tagging people 'cause my brain is just...too toasty today, heh. But feel free to do it, anyway!

Here's what I replied with at the respective LJ's.....

Some Supernatural purgatory/apocalypse thingy.... )

And some Teen Wolf. I know!! )

So, yes - WIP I hope to finish soon. I'm also madly typing away on the Space AU, and hope to get it done and beta'd tonight/tomorrow, depending on how fast i can type and how available my beta is. :)

Lastly - tv. WHY is no one talking about Sense8 )

C'mon, flist! Watch it!!

And now I must to work. Enjoy your day, flisties!!

Sooooo - way back last year - last *June* - there was a fandom works auction to benefit a dear person here in fandom who needed help. And I offered up fic, and people bid, and people won!

And I didn't get fic out in a timely manner. Because I suck like that. But i have been *working* on them (among other fic), and am finally *done* with the first one! Whoooo!

So this fic is for [livejournal.com profile] without_me, who bid on a J2/Wincest fic. And this is what happened with the prompt! I do hope it measures up. :)

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for your usual awesome beta, and [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou for your usual awesome cheering-on.

Finally! Sincerest apologies, my dear readers. I kinda suck at this sometimes. Mostly, the delay has been me being a dork and not actually *concentrating* on writing like I need to be. A very miniscule part has been my poor beta, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens having computer woes to end all computer woes.

But now we have more! And we're getting closer to the end! And and and....

I am so very grateful for all the readers out there who are sticking with it, and again - apologies for my dragging ass.

Hullo, flisty people! Wow, it's spring. Yay!! We've had rain, and yo-yo weather (70's down to 20's up to 60's, all in one day!) and there's a bird's next built in the decorative lantern i have on the front porch.

Little spring peepers (frogs) chorus half the night, and the birds are going nuts in the trees, singing singing singing. I look forward to the first laying of the wren eggs in our wren house. They have nested and laid two sets every year since we moved here. It's awesome.

Warmer is awesome, since i'm actually motivated to move away from my space heater and do stuff, heh.

Anyway - writing goes. I'll have another bit of Space AU up some time tomorrow, and i've written more of the Avengers thing i posted a bit ago.... Rejuvenation! Let's hope my writing has a spring, too. :)

Anyway - next bit of the Obsession drabbles. I posted it over in the comm a couple days ago. The prompt was 'Bondage', and this isn't, um...traditional bondage, but more the hold Jason has over everyone, by his insane and dangerous actions. The rest, of course, are in tags.

Thanks and enjoy!
