If you’ve followed me at all for any period of time, you know I used to blog pretty often, and then I got into fanfic, and wrote a lot of that, too.  Whether or not I was any good at any of that-- the personal blogging, the fic writing-- is another question.  The fact was, I wrote.

For a while, it felt good.  I had online people who read and commented, who agreed or sympathized with things that I said.  I even met some of those folks in real life, and they were all terrific in their own, separate ways.  When I wrote fictional stories, people liked them.  They thought I was funny, or poignant, or smart.  And I met some of those folks, too, in real life, and they were also terrific in their own, separate ways.

At a certain point, though, I stopped.  Stopped personal blogging.  Stopped fiction writing.  Stopped.

I have not used this journal actively much in the last several years, but I am still blogging and fanning at the tumblr for lettersfromeleanorrigby.  Please feel free to come find me there.  Most, but not all of the fic here, has been brought over to AO3, under the writer name blcwriter.

Hope you are well in your corner of the internet.

Reposted from my tumblr, inspired by a ridiculous picture of someone like Jim holding a kitten. AO3 link is here.

Three days, he figures— three days is a record for not mother-henning, and he’s goddamned entitled, now that it’s been that long, to go back and fuss and fume and check as much as he fucking likes. Not that the break hadn’t maybe been good for both their blood pressures.  But it was either strangle the whining sonofabitch (superhuman serum apparently didn’t affect personality, Jim was the same horrible patient as ever) or get the hell out and rely on the sensors SMA’d let him put in, that and the reports he got from the visitors he’d carefully scheduled to make sure Jim did not venture out of his apartment and catch something weird while they were still trying to figure out what the long term effects of 1) coming back from the dead and 2) Khan’s blood, may that asshole stay frozen forever, were going to be.

Link does what it says on the tin.  I am happy to talk more about it until I am Andorian blue in the face with anyone here (or at tumblr if you're there and want to msg me), and I'll admit right now that for all my complaints, there were a lot of things that were lovely and right.

It's just, right now I can't see past Pike's death and all the sexist, racist bullshit, that and the fact that Abrams & Co. never saw a recycled storyline they didn't like to be able to really do a "Things I loved about the new movie, in depth," post.


PG-13, Gen, ST: AOS, Tag fic for one of the ending scenes of Into Darkness

Kirk/Enterprise, Kirk/Everyone, Spoilers for the end of Into Darkness

No, really, major, major spoilers for the end of Into Darkness.  If you haven't seen it yet and don't want to be triggered, don't read, because I'm not going to be more specific in my warnings.

AO3 version here.

He wished he wasn’t so... afraid, so confused about what-all he’d fucked up where to get to this point... )
Whoops.  There was a gifset, and Jim and Bones sassing, and then there was an idea and I kind of riffed it?

Goddamn you, tumblr.

Complete crack.  Not really writing.  But it's kind of something.
Um.  I have no idea when/if I'll update my Trek fics (what do you mean, you associate all your stories with your divorce and now everything turns into the worst Mary Sues ever?), but some Avengers fic is happening at my AO3 account/page/thingy.

Here.  Lord knows, it would be the first time.  Surprisingly gen, for the moment, but Tony Stark-centric. 

Yeah.  (Hi!)
So, the lovely & amazing [livejournal.com profile] emiliglia and I went to see The Avengers last night.  I've been catching up on the movies over the last few months and otherwise lurking around and enjoying the kink meme but the movie.  THE MOVIE.  It was more awesome than Thor molesting eating Pop-Tarts while shirtless.  Everyone's arc was interesting, the whole thing worked as, an ahem, whole, it was astoundingly funny, so much so that sometimes I missed what the actors were saying ([livejournal.com profile] emiliglia and I are not the only ones who had to Google what Hulk said after he and Loki had their final encounter, it seems...) and it just.  Yeah.  I'll see it at least a few more times, I think.

I also don't want to spoil anyone, not that the below will probably make sense to anyone who didn't stay to the END END of the credits, but the whole Bruce/Tony vibe the whole movie was just.  Hngh.   


Maybe? spoiler-y macros. Eh. I'm just being nice using a cut. )
I know I've been gone for a while. But a friend and I were talking, and well, I decided this needed to happen after we agreed about the general awesomesauceness of Cinna.  (And no.  I have no interest in writing him into something, although the idea of him and the Gamesmaster (Wes Bentley, pretty) is INTERESTING.)

Hohshit, it's a Lenny Kravitz macro. )
Just a note to note that for those wondering if I'm dead.  I am not.  But I am still fannishly void for the moment, and any writing I'm doing is still at my personal blog regarding all the blah blah blah boring "I'm depressed about money/divorce/personal life" stuff that occupies my time these days.

Thank you to those of you who have sent notes, Christmas cards, left comments on fic, or otherwise chat with me by email or contacted me on FB.  I hope you're all well, and please know my late/non-responsiveness is no reflection on you, and entirely a reflection of the spin I'm still in.  As soon as someone invents the long-term anti-waaaaaaah patch that works better than the stuff I am taking, I will buy it.  : )   Hugs to you all.

Just as a fandom FYI since it's come up, I'm no longer XO at [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones.  There's no drama at all as to my taking leave of the bridge crew, but I've just got lots of stuff going on in my personal life (mild!statement is putting it mildly) and I couldn't balance the comm with work and real life.  If you have comm questions, please direct them to the jb_mod inbox, and the awesome!mod on duty of awesome will help you.
I've gotten a few "when are you going to finish XYZ series..." PMs lately.  I'm afraid the answer is that I don't know.  My recent move/impending divorce/blah blah blah has pretty much taken the wind out of my writing sails and I don't know how long I'll working my way out of irons, but I wanted to thank everyone who's showed interest, both for their past reading and for wanting some more.  Fandom readers are, without any doubt, the very best readers of all.
My story We Defy Augury was nominated for an award! This one, the best romance/fluff category in the "No Rest for the Wicked" Awards and the rest of the stories and art in the category and overall are AMAZING...

Thank you to the person who nominated me (I have my suspicions, and THANK YOU)-- and I hope you enjoy the rest of the nominees as much as I did.
My beloved [livejournal.com profile] emiliglia  has been working away on an AU bigbang in which Jim is a helicopter pilot and Bones is a modern-day trauma surgeon.  It's long, it's angsty, it's gorgeous, it's a reworking of all of their tropes in contemporary times, and Bones is a medical BAMF while Jim is his own brand of kick-ass and they both re-write their stories, both apart and together. 

It's called The Greater Good (NC17), and I completely adore it.  I hope you do too.
