My Fic

Pretty much all my fic can be found on AO3.

Transformative Works Policy

I grant permission for anyone to create fan works based on stories I have written. Feel free to remix a fic, write a sequel, create fan art, or podfic my works. I simply ask that I be credited for my original work that inspired yours and that you link back to it.

I'd love to see what you did, so please link me to your work if you're willing. It would be great if it was posted on AO3 so I could add it to 'works inspired by this one', but that is not a deal breaker.

Podfic: if any small modifications to the words/dialog are needed to make it flow better, that's fine with me. Please do make mention that you have adapted/altered/modified the work in you podfic 'notes'.

I am here purely to bitch.

So, slacker!guy from my project group missed class tonight. Me and YH told the prof we were pretty much done with his bullshit. The Prof wrote him an email reminding him we will be evaluating each other at the end of the course and if the people on his team both give him a bad review for lack of partcipation, it will reflect badly on his mark.

So, I literally just got an email from him asking for any updates on our project. As if YH and I have not been including him on every fucking update and email all along for the last 5 weeks. And he has access to our shared document, which I know because I forced him to log in to it during class a few weeks ago.

I was a little pissed. I wrote back. I would have been far more scathing, but he could turn around and accuse us of not working with him, so I pulled it back a bit.


If you checked the shared google doc, read the notes, checked the group slack, or made any effort to participate, you would already know all the updates that YH and I have made. We have included you on all of our communications and changes. We have asked for thoughts,  feedback, comments... you have given none.

You have made absolutely no meaningful contribution to our project. What, exactly, are you planning to contribute now that YH and I have already done 90% of the work?

Would have rather told him he was a useless fucktwaddle, but didn't want that in writing if it goes as far as an appeal when I give him a zero on his review.

Work and school whining

Straight up complaining, folks.

Whine, Whine, Whine...Collapse )

Let's see. What is something good right now? Because I always tell the whiny child, when EVERYTHING IS SO TERRIBLE OMG, that she has to tell me something good.

I have a most awesome coffee cup that my friend B gave me - she's actually the vendor I work with most, and I saw her in Nashville at our bi-annual business review. She brought it for me. It is hand crafted pottery and it is my new fave. Isn't it great?

It is full of chocoloco tea at the moment.

Also! I won two [community profile] fandomtrumpshate auctions I bid in! I made my donation to The Center For Public Integrity this morning. It was the offerings for Person of Interest and Leverage that caught my eye. I am looking forward to seeing what the writers eventually come up with.

Place your bids!

2019 Fandom Trumps Hate is now live!

You can find all everything on offer over here. I have already bid on at least six things. I lost track already. I will have to check back often to see if anyone steals them from me.

Guitar strings are vicious

I like to pick up my guitar during the week while I am taking a break from work. I put on the kettle, and while waiting for the water to boil for tea, I strum a bit, play a song or two. It's just a little break and it keeps me doing that, "pick it up for at least a few minutes every day" thing.

A few months ago, one of the strings on my slimline Yamaha broke. It's my fave to play because a) slimline and b) it has a built in tuner which is the best thing EVER. But when I went to change the strings, one of the pegs broke. So instead of ordering a new set of pegs, I just started using my second favourite guitar.

Yes, I am that lazy.

A couple days ago, one of the strings on the second favourite broke.

So the desire to change strings was now greater than the laziness that would otherwise induce me to start using the third favourite guitar. Since I have a broken string, I now have a spare peg I can steal for the fave guitar. Also, my tuner sucks and I hate trying to tune that thing, or I probably would just play the third favourite.

Well, the Yamaha just got a blood offering, because that fricking high E string whipped back at me when I was twisting the used strings up in a bundle and impaled my thumb like a fish hook. I tried to jerk free before I realized that. Ouch.

Don't ignore your favourite guitar, folks. I think it was looking for revenge.

In other news, besides making blood sacrifices to my guitar, today I did dishes, made chicken stew in a crockpot and spent several hours on homework. I just posted the chapter that goes with the art [personal profile] danceswithgary made - go look at it, it's beautiful!. And now, I'm going to try and get some writing done (crossing fingers)

Crazy on the horizon...

Things at work... are not mellowing out. I have been holding on to this fantasy that after the migration, things were going to be less nuts, but it appears that was a fallacy on my part. This year looks to be careening off into insanity.

Work blah blah blah...Collapse )

Writing: Sometimes, I swear, opening a vein would be less painful.Collapse )

It has been snowing here. Which, ok, winter, so to be expected. But I am spoiled by the generally mild temps on the West Coast and I prefer my snow up in the mountains. It is pretty there and I like to look at it. Not so much fun when its on the street and sidewalk and there is melty slush and black ice. Though, I really can't complain, since the younger brother is in Edmonton, experiencing far worse. Heh.

Also have a cold. Ugh. So tired of sniffles and sneezes.

Ok, that's enough whinging for today.

It's good to be home

The best part about going on a business trip is coming home. And I am so glad to be home, even though today has been full of snow and promises to bring all sorts of crazy tomorrow. Yay for working from home!

I've done zero writing this month so far. I thought I might be able to get some done this weekend, but not so much. I just needed to decompress, hang out with the kids and watch crap on tv. Did some laundry, took a shower, made lunch - that was about the extent of my productivity.

The middle child/youngest daughter managed to crack her tablet. I don't know how, it was in her purse in a case, but she's talented. It really affects the image, even though it's still technically usable; I'd been toying with upgrading because I wanted something with more RAM, but could not justify it when my tablet worked well enough. This was my justification.

I splurged on a bluetooth keyboard and I think that's probably the best part. I would have loved to have this keyboard with me on my trip. I hate laptop keyboards, they're so small, it's so annoying. This thing lets you sync with up to three devices, which is cool - so I could have my tablet and phone and laptop all at the same time. Granted, it won't fit in my laptop bag, but it will fit in my luggage, so that works for me.

Ugh. Back to work tomorrow, and it's going to be a busy week catching up with all the stuff I am behind on after being out of the office last week. I find it very difficult to be productive anywhere but my own space. I need my desk, my chair, my dual screen monitors, my ergonomic mouse and keyboard... like I said, it's good to be home.
