So, I had a moment of panic

Mostly because I'm still not finished ACBB, but I'm almost there, though I have to go back and Fill In The Blanks, and I have two more extra bonus!scenes that I want to write, too, though those will be short.

Then the panic went away because, hey, no problem, I'll be done by August 1st.

Only for the panic to freak its shit out, because I don't have a beta, and the person who had volunteered to Britpick hasn't responded to my email, and fucketyfuckfuckfuck.


So, um.

Would anyone have the time and willingness to do a beta and a Britpick?  I generally turn in a mostly-polished draft, since very few people see my Draft Zero, so SPAG is really at a minimum.

It's sad but true -- I'm just too busy at work to take breaks or even spend more than a few minutes with people to talk about anything other than work.  For that reason, a lot of people, even the ones who have been there nearly as long as I have, have absolutely no idea what I'm really like.  In particular: I'm really fucking inappropriate.

One of my colleagues found this out some time ago, one morning when she showed up early to make up some time and caught me while I was impatiently boiling water for my tea, so I had a few minutes to chat about Random Things.  This means, however, that she delighted in the discovery and does everything she can to out-inappropriate me.

This morning, I was nursing a headache that painkillers couldn't break, and it showed.  She came to my office to ask me a work-related question, paused when she saw that I looked like death, and asked if I was okay.

Me: Yeah, I'm all right, my head just can't decide if it wants to spend more time torturing me before it finishes me off.

Her: Oh, that's awful.  You know what I heard?  Sex really helps with headaches.  All those people who say they don't want sex because they have a headache?  That's bullshit.  You should have sex, it'll get rid of your headache.

Me (without missing a beat and completely serious): Oh yeah, I heard that, too.  So, are you offering?

She spent a few minutes spluttering, forgot what she came to ask me for help with, and muttered something under her breath that I didn't catch, but probably wasn't very flattering toward me.  That's understandable, because she has yet to win this game.

(She never did remember what she came to ask me about, which is kind of fantastic.)


A little after lunch, I ran into a different colleague, who was wearing a new shirt.  I commented that it was nice and it suited her, she shrugged off her cardigan to show that it was a tank top.  Incidentally, she's one of the few people who know what I'm really like, but she never thinks of it in time to save herself.

Me: Oh, yeah, because your section is still really hot, right?  They still haven't fixed the ventilation?

Her: Nope.  So when I go down there, the sweater comes off.  It all comes off.

Me: All of it?  It's that warm?

Her: It's ridiculous.  I walk in there and have to start taking my clothes off.

Me: All of it?

Her: All my clothes.  I take them off.  As soon as I walk in.

Me: I guess you have to do what you have to do.  Oh, hi, boss!

She started to laugh, thinking I was pranking her, but then she saw the little innocent smile on my face.  She closed her eyes in I hate you so much irritation, and slowly turned around.  Sure enough, our (new) boss was right there, blinking at her as if trying to make sense of what he just overheard while walking past.  He shook his head, clearly deciding that he didn't want to know, and kept walking.

By that point, I was long gone, so she couldn't kill me.



the weekend update & new fic

It was fairly busy, in a domestic sort of way:

  • Took BabyBoy to volunteer at the Shakespeare Tavern so he could see the professional cast who directed his youth players' group perform in Midsummer's Night Dream. Twice.

  • Got an actual haircut (as opposed to just hacking off the bangs/wisps around my face.) Did *not* do the color-the-gray thing... eh, I'm legit old enough to not care about the gray now I guess

  • Periscoped into Disney's D23 Parks & Resorts panel and started saving all my money for the previously-just-rumored-but-now-totally-official Star Wars hotel / LARP experience.

  • Had a very exciting Sunday morning of getting up early and going to Trader Joe's

  • Took BB up to Shared Worlds, said hi to various ppls, came back (it's a little bittersweet as it will be the last year I'll have kids there. I think at least one or another of the boys has been there all but one year of its existence.)

  • Finished the last Dresden audiobook. I'm a little lost, now--14 audiobooks is a lot of time with James Marsters in my earbuds. It's like my brain doesn't know what to do next.

  • Finished the fluffiest fic I have written in ages: just a perfect blendship, Wonder Woman, Etta & Diana, gen -- featuring several of my most favorite tropes: food & team-as-family


    Today I had an all-day orientation for the new job, wherein I discovered that wow, this is a huge company (which I kind of knew, but yow. Really big.) My brain is kind of mush at this point, so have a nice evening and I hope you enjoy the fic. (New fandoms are nerve-wracking.)

    Thing the First: For whatever reason, my brain has been going off on all these PWP tangents, this time a random addition to the almost-canon Clint/Darcy (I was fine with it until the farm arrived and it was way too late to change.) This is really the set-up to the pr0n, but there's a little bit of (mostly tame) knifeplay, if that's a thing for you. More coming soon! (I hope.)

    ready for the start of something new, MCU, Clint/Darcy, Part 3 of the fall in with you series (though really, it's just pr0n, so you're not really missing anything if you skip the earlier parts)


    Thing the Second: It was Beach Week last week, and I posted the pretty pictures to IG, but I thought I'd share a couple of goofy ones here...

    it was the Year of the Pegicorn )


    and the unicorn floatie 'nursery' in the hot tub )

    With any luck, no one got photographic evidence of us trying to ride the silly thing in the waves. (Or video, omg.) There was frozen sangria & voodoo juice involved (you're shocked, I know.)

    Thing the Third: BabyBoy's Shakespeare thing was great, and he has gone and hung out with his group of fellow actors several times, so I think we can count it as a success. Even better, the extended family was confused enough by the actual verse that none of them realized the actor playing the boy/girl part was actually a guy (though shading to agender, still using he/him) and thus did not flip out at BB kissing him. (I didn't get to see the performance where all BB's HS drama friends came, but D said the kiss got a lot of hooting and hollering. No extended family there that night either.)
