I'm currently working for the Rural fire department, doing admin-type stuff, and will also be organizing and basically coming up with their new fire safety and prevention/awareness program for the elementary schools.

I will *most likely* be doing that via Americorp/VISTA, but as the Admin Assistant left and starts *her* new job next week, her spot is open. I'm filling in right now, but i'm *fingers crossed* that I can interview and maybe do that job, instead. HEALTH BENEFITS. Plus better pay. Either way, I'm there for at least a year, if not more. It's terrifying and exciting. :)

Anyway - I *thought* there was only one more chapter of 'Yesternight', but HA. I was wrong. As always, Darkhavens is the most awesome person ever, and I'd never get anything posted if it was for her awesome skills and encouragement.

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! :)

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. :)

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!

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.

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.

I hope the translation is good - the site wouldn't do a reverse translation for me to check, and neither would any other site i tried - it just kept putting the same words in Hindi in the 'translate to English' box. Arrgh.

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!

So! I did actually post more of that 'Obsession' Christian Kane/Jason Behr story, but I didn't post it here. So now i'll post both the 'old' bit and the new stuff.

Also - i have been reading so many *amazing* Steve/Bucky post Winter Soldier fics...DAMN. Makes me want to write *so much more* in that 'verse. I'm working on a second bit to my first one, so.... Soon, i hope? And working on Space AU, and yes, *still* on the charity auction fics, though those winners probably hate me by now.....

My work has been horribly boring and tedious and the hours are stupid and i'm trying to find something else. Too bad i'm not an accountant, because they seem to be needed a lot. But wow, could not do that job.

Anyway - here's the bits of the 'Obsession' 'verse that are new. Of course, they're all over at [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble, as well as new drabbles in many fandoms ever week, so go check out the comm! :)

These two are for the prompts 'Alcohol' and 'Illegal'

Takes place immediately after Murder By Numbers.

Well, i am, as my dad would say, 'feeling puny'. So no work for me today (or yesterday), and i thought i'd get my updates all...updated.

I posted another ficlet at [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble, a continuation of the same story. It's over at the comm for now - I'll be putting it on my lj soon enough. It's nice to see drabbles and ficlets going up over there!

Also the Space AU! Which, you guys. I feel like such a dork, dragging it out so long, but it's not deliberate! It's just...me. I'm glad my faithful readers are still hanging on, though I totally understand if people want to wait until it's complete to read, too.

I think a couple more chapters will see us through to the end, so not long now, I promise!
Some 'not English' spoken in this chapter, so that's this:

'Tudo bom. - Everything good.

We'll call this 'Obsession 'verse' because, really - that's what it is. I started writing the next bit off the newest prompt (The Police song titles) and got a little...carried away.

So almost 1500 words later, I'm done, but - ha! - not exactly a drabble *or* even a ficlet. So on the advice of the ever-smrt [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens, I posted a 200 word snippet at [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble, and I'm posting the whole piece *here*.

So. :)

I am so pleased that that comm is back up! I love that i'm writing more. I really really really need to *write more*. On all kinds of things. (Yes, you people who won fic off me, i'm still working on them, you are not abandoned, i just really suck right now!!)

Thanks again, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for the beta. AND, for finding the only word-count app on the entire Interwebs that counts correctly! G-docs and a host of others count html and all kinds of things, and we could *not* get an accurate word count. (And counting by hand, finally, showed us I was short when online counts showed us I was *over*.) CharacterCountOnline rocks.

Hullo! Finally posting 'right' - finally have my computer up and running again, new hard drive in place, OS reinstalled, things getting back to normal. It'll take a few more days to dl and install all the little things that i'm missing - Photosheep, Filezilla, VLC.... And of course, all the little tweaks and settings and whatnot that made it all run and look *just like i like*.

And I need to find a decent Torrent client, since BitLord puts a completely un-removable toolbar fucking *thing* in theirs. Jackasses.

ANYway..... [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble is in it's first week back from a long hibernation, and I'm...writing stuff. Wheeee!

So I thought i'd just post them all here, so they were all together on my journal, as well as over at the comm. Warning for...i guess...creepy-stalkery stuff.

Here be ficlets.... )

Yes, at last! I am so pokey, it's horrible. But, this fic *will* be finished, and sooner rather than later.

In other news - it's cold, it's sleet-drizzling, my job is tedious, our Xmas tree is awesome. :) We got a nice, big, fat cedar this year, which really - yay! I love a good cedar tree. I'll post a picture soon - before the actual day. 'Cause i know you're all dying to see, heh.

Hello, lovelies! Finally, some new stuff, eh? I'm really very pleased and grateful that you all are still reading and not getting horribly annoyed and impatient with my slow progress. Thank you!

As always, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens did the final poke, prod and tidy, polishing to perfection. What would I do without her? :)

And, on a random, fandom note.... I caved and watched the season 10 promo for Show.

I know! I know. I'm sorry. I dunno why this bit was so hard - i just couldn't seem to make my brain work. Plus, school started, and things happened, and etc., and....

Anyway, here is the next bit, quite late.

BUT - first - a small pimp. My dearest [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens has been my beta for years, but she's *also* a writer. She's just had some horrible, horrible blocking going on. However, at last, she got inspired and did some writing! So if you like 'The Losers' fandom, then please hop over and read the fun ficlets she wrote. You won't regret it! :)
