Title: Fucked Up the First Time

Word Count: 3,300

Notes: I'm posting this as a WIP on my DW/LJ, anticipating that I might need to make changes to it once I finish. When it's complete, I'll post it to AO3. It's just easier to keep going if I make the parts that are finished a little more official, and a little less intimidating.

I'm hoping to have some actual Avengers fic posted in the next day or two, but in the meantime, here is some ridiculous min-Avengers! They have been de-aged due to Reasons.

Title: ...Mini-Avengers!
Rating: R

Notes: There are frat boys hanging out in the parking lot across the street from my house. They're cutting down tree branches.

Huh.

I have been COOKING! It started at the beginning of the semester, when I was too poor to, like, buy food, and was scraping things together--but I'm still going! I've been doing little things like buying carrots/celery/peppers/broccoli and cutting them up all at the same time. Then I just put them in little ziploc baggies and take them to school with me, and eat them with hummus, and they are tasty. I'm discovering how much I like fresh, uncooked peppers.

Also, crepes are super easy to make, and I have nutella and frozen strawberries to put in them, but ALSO, I put in stir-fried veggies and mozzarella one time, and it was AWESOME.

I baked a couple loaves of Challah for Passover, and made chili on Saturday, and made potato soup tonight (it is cheesy and delicious and full of fresh parsley). I made huge batches of both and put a lot of it in the freezer, so that when I'm in hell week for my show, I won't be reduced to eating Burger King every meal. O.o

I got eggplant and butternut squash at the farmer's market, so I'm gonna make eggplant parm and a squash casserole.

Pretty much the most cooking I've done prior to this in my life is, like, macaroni. So it is all very new. Thank god for the internet. My search history is kind of sad. "Can I use potatoes when they have grown EYES? How can the onions not make me cry? Can you cook potatoes with skins on? HOW DO I FOOD?"

YAY ADULTHOOD

You don’t need to be a great writer to take part – just join in and have fun! SIGN UP HERE!


I've never done an LAS activity before--it looks like fun! I could do with some boundary-pushing in my writing. I'm also looking forward to it because hopefully, it'll keep me writing during the school year.

And also because I AM COMPETITIVE. BRING IT ON, BITCHES.

...in other (nicer) words--come play! \o/

I'm taking six classes this semester, directing a show, preparing for my thesis in the Spring, applying for jobs for next year, and ideally I'll stage manage/act in at least one more show on top of that. Which is...ridiculous. But voluntary. There are a lot of great classes offered this semester (including on on feminism and the media, I AM SO EXCITED). I'm hoping that things like [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarlas and [livejournal.com profile] ficfinishing will help me get writing done this semester. I also hope that I do not die. O.o

I'm spending tomorrow at home, soaking in the love and tension of family, then driving back up to TinyTown on Friday! I was talking to [personal profile] elrhiarhodan about how the time's kind of flown by--I was just starting to dip my toes into fandom at the same time I was applying for grad school programs.

I FEEL ALL GROWN UP.

I'm going to go work more on the dyslexia!verse. I'm bad at planning and good at procrastinating, so what I did was I posted the first chapter of the sequel, hoping that having it out in the world would make me write the concluding part faster.

That did not work.

What I want to do is go back and radically change the last part of Alright Is Two Different Words, then I've got one chapter about ready to go, and I Have A Plan for the part after that (which would be the third and last chapter of 'Alright'). It feels unkosher to take back something that I already published, but. BUT I HAD A BETTER AND SADDER IDEA. IT INVOLVES GOO AND FEELINGS.

(ALSO I FOUND THE ICON OF MY HEART. [livejournal.com profile] cookielaura MADE IT. I NOW LOVE HER. AND CAT!NEAL'S ANKLET. I WANT TO EAT HIM WITH A SPOON...)

Title: Alright Is Two Different Words
Fandom: Avengers
Series: Dyslexia!Verse
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Clint/Coulson
Word Count: 4,100
Thanks: I had an amazing team of betas who helped me through this fic. [personal profile] arsenicjade[personal profile] alfadorcat[personal profile] miriad, and [personal profile] gnomi made this fic a lot better than it would have otherwise been. A special thanks for arsenicjade for talking me through the worst of my sequel-related issues. Any remaining mistakes are all my fault!
Summary: For most of Clint’s life, being able to read has been like being able to fly. Sure, it would be nice, and sometimes he’ll dream about what it would be like to have words or wings, but at some point he always comes back down to earth.

Title: assume a defensive stance
Fandom: Avengers
Rating: R
Pairing: Bruce/Clint
Word Count: 4,600
Thanks: Many shout-outs to [personal profile] gnomi[livejournal.com profile] csi_vixen, and [personal profile] miriad, who made this story immeasurably better than it would have otherwise been. Any remaining mistakes are mine!

Summary: Written for this prompt on [livejournal.com profile] avengerkink: When Bruce and Clint get together, everyone is worried - Clint is a bit forward, and slapstick, and unpredictable, and thinks things are funny when they're really not funny. They're just a bit unsure as to whether Bruce should really be with him, seeing as how Bruce needs a nice, quiet, calming influence.

Bruce looks up from his sandwich (peanut butter and Frito Lays on white bread, because Clint claims to be trying to educate his palate by way of circus delicacies) and turns to his boyfriend, who’s lounging against very expensive lab equipment like a misplaced James Dean.  )

re: subj line--"next to normal" anyone? yes. i saw that musical once, and they sang that line SO MANY TIMES that it pops into my head whenever i'm feeling lively after a down spell. it's replaced the zombie "i'm aliiiiiiiiiiiiive!"

So, it has been many moons (er, that means months, doesn't it. fortnights? couple-of-days-long-units-of-time) since I last updated.

Me in a nutshell: Finished out the year. Ended on a sour note with some people, which, I don't usually do, on account of how I avoid confrontation/negative interactions, so it threw me for a loop more than it perhaps should have. I'm heading to Phoenix in...a week (Phoenix! In ARIZONA!) for an internship. So, if my updating doesn't continue, it's possible that I've died of heat. 

I should write a fuller entry on this, but: I got to meet [personal profile] arsenicjade a few weekends ago, and she is LOVELY. She got me hooked on Magnificent 7, and we ate delicious food (smoosh-in ice cream and Indian food and homecooked pasta sauce with delicious bread), and mostly we lounged. It was relaxing and invigorating and fun. :-)

Um. Let's see. I'm bad at recapping. Um. I have a bag! Like, a nice bag! From a department store! It's made for women! *stares at it* I saw it, and my brain (and body, actually) made grabby hands. We're in love. It's weird. *stares at it more* I'm not big on shopping, and I mostly stick to gender-neutral/butch clothing, but this BAG. *stares more*

Uuuuuuuuuuuuum I should go write fic now. I have this weekend empty of things to do, so I need to make sure I do not slack, because I will be a happier person if I am writing stories. 

I think (hope) I'm coming out of a kind of nasty depressive swing. I'm generally pretty crap at transitional periods, and worrying about money is never good on top of that, and I'm moving house, and saying goodbye to the folks who are graduating, and also, I've just been lonely. Which. Yeah. Sucks. But! I am feeling more chipper (I am sooooooooooo alive) and I'm going to go write and comment on folks' entries (I am soooooooooooooooo behind) and at some point, I shall eat food! Probably while watching Captain America. Because the Avengers have eaten my brain.

OH SPEAKING OF THINGS THAT ATE MY BRAIN

IS THERE A WHITE COLLAR HUNGER GAMES AU YET?
