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'.

Work: Still crazy, but the end is in sight. We're going to hit the migration date or crash and burn in a spectacular fashion, but either way, the end is in sight. Sadly, crazy week lines up with the week I wanted to take two days off to prep for my co-op Christmas party. Pretty sure I won't get those days.

School: Good. Busy, challenging, but good. I think that using jQuery makes a little more sense to me than plain old JavaScript. I still prefer to avoid it entirely if there is a CSS option to do the same thing.

BOD: I will be very glad when my term on the board of directors is up. In the spring. Just a few more months. Thank all that is holy.

Writing: So I did complete and post my [community profile] sgareversebang fic - it is weird. I like fluff. I write fluff. I DON'T LIKE BUCKETS OF ANGST! So why the heck have several of my recent stories gone fully over into angstville? I do not know.

Also, GO ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE DOING NANO! WOO! I will sit on the sidelines and wibble. I think about nano. And laugh at the idea of me writing 50K in a month. I can barely hit that in a year.

Oh! I did hi my goal for [community profile] getyourwordsout, so go me! Yay! I can accomplish writing things from time to time!

Writing Meme:I saw a meme on DW and LJ and tumblr about list the names of what is in your WiP folder. LOL! I got a huge kick out of what some folks name the things in their WiP folders - much more creative than I am. I was giggling for a while after reading a few of those.

Mine are things like this:

HP SGA Xover_V11.9.9.2018.docx (HP/SGA)
No Objection_V3.4.28.2018.docx (HP/SGA - outtake from main WiP)
Jenny Sheppard breaks an arm.docx (SGA)
triads.docx (SGA)
Cooking With Rodney McKay.doc (SGA)
Matter of Faith.doc (pretender)
What you sow you shall also reap.doc (pretender)
Visiting the millers fic.docx (SGA)
SGA - POI xover - Conspiracy.scriv (SGA/POI)
Running on Empty.scriv (SGA)
Freefalling.scriv (SGA)
Small Matters.scriv (SGA)
Touch Therapy.scriv (SGA)

I could not find them in the folder, but somewhere on my hard drive is a SG1/BtVS xover and a POI/Scorpion/SGA xover idea.

It's not a WiP, but I have an excel spreadsheet where I charted the SG1, SGA, POI and NCIS timelines compared to each other with key events noted along the way. I need to add HP to that.

I possibly have a thing for crossovers.

Plus I pulled out a notebook a few weeks ago to write down school notes and found at least a half dozen Buffy fic ideas in various states - some were just notes, some had pages of dialogue - man! it's been a long time since I used to write out stories longhand and then type them up.

SGA beta needed

I am polishing up my SGA ReverseBang fic and thinking that a beta would be a good idea. Any takers? Probably send it over tomorrow, after a final review tonight.

Tea and coding

I believe there is a filk waiting in that title. I have been drinking a lot of tea whilst working on my coding homework.

School stuff that is probaably boring if you don't know HTML or CSS...Collapse )

I had another fic idea the other day. Shocking. Okay, not really. I wrote almost a thousand words though, that was unexpected. I think it will probably end up being around 2K-3K and amusing. Or so I hope.

In related news, I was at the dentist on Friday. It was awful because dentist and crown prep, but it wasn't as horrible as it could have been. Anyway, I tried to distract myself by thinking about the stories I am working on, but I suddenly started wondering what would happen if Draco had to go to a muggle dentist... I have it mostly plotted out in my head. It was a good use of my time while I had a drill whittling away at my tooth. Well, they say we should write what I we know, and man, do I know what it is to be terrified of going to the dentist. I have much personal experience to draw from for this one.

Now, must go finish homework.

Busy, busy...

Homework assignments, work migration, board of directors stuff, lather, rinse repeat. I feel like I have no life.

I have gotten 100% on all my school stuff so far... till this week. I only got a 9/10 on my test this week. Yeah, I know, why am I whinging over one mark? Because I struggle like hell and barely felt like I made it through my other classes and this one was supposed to be my slam dunk and I wanted a perfect score. Damn it. I probably missed something stupid.

Because of moosaic4 and a third-party pinky swear, I finally saw my doctor this week. (It's a thing. I've been informed that one cannot violate the sanctity of a pinky swear, and I'm more afraid to find out what happens if I ever do than I am lazy and avoidy of my doctor.) As per usual, it took a month to get in to see him. I've been having knee issues for a couple months. My guess was I probably have a torn meniscus; I figured I should go to physio and the only way to really see anything is an MRI.

After he poked and prodded, his assessment is likely a torn meniscus. He said I should go to physio and he's booking me for an MRI.

*rolls eyes so hard*

*sprains eyeballs*

Yeeaaah. I learned so much that I didn't already know.

I need to get cracking and finish my [community profile] sgareversebang fic. The word count requirement this year is only 1K, so that's not an issue, and I know where I want to go with it - I just haven't had much time since I did my first bit of writing on it to sit down and get it finished.

I am already thinking about the co-op Christmas party and feeling overwhelmed by it. I love doing it, but last year was really crazy with school, being on the BOD, planning a 50th birthday party and then the party on top of it. One of the gals on my committee who is a very negative person made a comment that really put me off - normally, I can handle her, but I was just not in a place to do so. Anyway, it left a bad taste in my mouth all year and I am finding that, for the first time in a long time, I don't want to do it. I just don't want to. I want a year off. But if I don't do it, the committee won't do it right (right = up to my standards, which are ridiculous, I know) and then I'll be bitchy.


Thankfulness check-in! I am thankful...

...that I don't work weekends.

...that I have been able to pay off one credit card and am almost done with a second - two (almost) down, one to go!

...that even though I am about to rack up another $1700 in dental for yet another crown (so much for paying off that credit card) at least my work insurance is covering 60% of it.

...that I didn't have to fly home from Nashville this week. You have no idea how happy I am that I didn't need to make that trip!

...for chocolate and wine. SO. VERY. THANKFUL.

Loot crate haul - woot!

Whoo! I love getting the Wizarding lootcrate! Man, this totally made my week! it's kinda been a shitty couple of weeks...

The inside of the crate is a picture of the great hall... These are great!


I love this bookmark!


Notebooks. I'm just sayin', you can never have too many notebooks.


And inside, it has a watermark, which is nifty!


LOOK AT THIS BAG! IT'S AMAZING! I'm totally using this to haul my crap around going forward.


Imma hang this on my wall. I want the pennants for all of the houses, actually. That would be really cool.

It's a homework afternoon...

I would much rather be writing. Or doing crafty things. But, alas, homework must be done. So here I sit, with my lovely cup of Chocoloco tea and work on my css.

On the flip side, at least it's fun.

School...Collapse )

As I suspected, I have barely had time to turn around since I last posted (work was such a shit show, there are not enough words to accurately describe the depth and breadth of my annoyance and aggravation) but I still have things to be grateful for! Many, actually, but here are a few more:


...that I am generally healthy. I have some issues, but considering everything overall, I'm doing well.

...that my work is paying for my courses. With luck, I will be able to get them to cover most of the courses that are part of my certificate.

...that I live in a co-op in a beautiful city, on the coast, in Canada. Weather is generally awesome, location is pretty much fantastic. If I was given a choice today, that someone would pay all my moving expenses if I wanted to move, I can't think of anywhere else on the planet I would want to live.

...that I have Monday off. Dude. DUDE. My head is so ready to explode, I needed Monday off.

...that we had a power outage last night around 7:30 pm. It made me log off my work computer because I literally could not work anymore because no power = no internets. I could have tethered to my phone, but it was almost dead and then I would have had to work on the laptop keyboard on one screen, trying to finish the monthly financials... yeah. BUCKETS OF NOPE. So instead, I grabbed my trusty tablet and read fanfic from 27 chrome tabs I had open and closed some of those suckers.

The power came back on later and I did go back and work from midnight to 2 am, but I felt more refreshed - I had to get the financials done last night, not optional.

School: Loving this course so far!Collapse )

My Brother:Things are going surprisingly well!Collapse )

Work:Oh, so much kvetching...Collapse )

Canadian Thanksgiving is on the horizon. I am going to try to do that thankfulness thing, where you post about three things something you are thankful or grateful for every day for a month. I will likely NOT succeed in doing it every day, but eh.


...that I don't have to fly to Nashville for business this week. SO, SO grateful.

...that all three of my kids are adults and still actually want to spend time with me, even the one that moved out.

...that my term on the board of directors will be up in the spring.

...for having re-established a connection with the bro.

Now I'm nervous...

So my homework this week is to create a semantically accurate HTML 5 / CSS3 page. The assignment says: "Write a page that describes three or more places you have been (countries, restaurants, etc)."


So I emailed the proff and asked:

"How do you feel about fiction? I don't really travel or go to fancy restaurants much... but I have a keen imagination and was toying with writing a 'travel review' of sorts for exotic locations I've visited via books, movies or TV. I was thinking of, say Wizarding London, Diagon Alley and Hogwarts, or maybe the Pegasus Galaxy and the Atlantis outpost."

He just emailed me back and said that was fine, and OMG, now I am nervous about doing a good job! But basically, I get to rave about my fannish obsessions for school, so that's pretty awesome.
