That’s what I feel like I’m doing right now.  I’m not even sure if anybody follows me on WP, or if they just find me in the reader somehow, but I’ve doubled my post count today, and will probably double it again as I move all of my fic over there.  I have definitely decided on taking the course of serialising to WP, and then archiving to AO3/FFN later. 


I’ve posted Tarbell, Superhero RPF, and some one-shots so far today.  I’m gonna just start going down my AO3 list now, posting them in whatever order they happen to be in over there.  I may even delve deeper, and post stuff from older fandoms as well.  If I can still find older fandom stuff, anyway.  Computer crashes are great for losing old stuff.

It’s Thursday, when means Robin Hood goes back to work today, and won’t be home until Tuesday.  (Usually he’s home late Sunday night, but this week’s a little different.)  I’m just in bed, wondering why I got up so early, and trying to work out what to do with my day.  I’ve got a few orders to fill, which I’ll probably do later tonight, so I can take them up to the post office tomorrow.

Speaking of the post office, I got a wonderful email today, where the USPS pretty much admitted they done fucked up with this late rate hike, and are redacting it in April.  I’m probably not the only one who stopped shipping Priority as a result, and I bet they lost a lot of general business to UPS over this one.  It was BAD.  I’m actually wondering how many sales I’ve lost of it, when people got to the checkout and saw the outrageous prices just for First Class.  But that’s all going back down next month, so I’m happy.

I’m probably gonna work on my commission today, since I want really badly to finish it by the end of the month.  I kind of don’t think it’s gonna happen, and I’m going to propose a change in style to the next one I do for this person.  The current way is just taking way too long, and I’ve stumbled upon a shortcut that looks just as nice, but takes half the time to complete.  I’ll see what he says the next time I see him.

Also, I’ve just got a little bit of tweaking to the final chapter, and then I’m done with Isla Nublar.  I’m probably gonna give myself a little break from chapter fic before jumping into finishing Midgard Legends for  WIP Big Bang.  Isla Nublar is going to top off somewhere around 83k, I think, after editing the last six chapters.  I’m so pleased to be done with it, you have no idea.  It’s been a wild ride, and after this, I definitely need to take a little break from writing action scenes before finishing my war story.  I think, once I get all of my WIPs worked out, I’m going to focus mainly on my AU series, and try to get it as far as I’ve got the ideas to take it.  I may keep writing tasertricks stories on the side, and definitely want to try to figure out what to do with this drifter AU idea I have.  I also really want to write an arranged marriage fic, but I’m torn.  The setup could work within the Loki AU series, but I’m not sure I want to actually go that far with it.  I had ideas that I really wanted to get into, but now I’m not sure I like them anymore.  But if I do the arranged marriage fic as a tasertricks fic, I’m going to wind up really struggling to come up with a setup for it I like.  The one that fits best for the canon doesn’t fit for the characters, basically.  Or maybe I will use the setup I have for the Loki AU and just tweak it around and make it fit.  Because I’ve been craving some arranged marriage fic that isn’t Thorki for a long time.  I think this is the first time I’ve ever been in a fandom where the juggernaut went beyond not even interesting me to being a flat out nope.  It’s anoying, because I know I’m missing out on a lot of stuff, but god, no.  DNW.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve lived in a constant state of kind of sick, and occasionally seriously ill.  There was one winter when I was dying of an upper respitory infection that wouldn’t quit, but I still wanted to go trick or treating, so mum dressed me up like a vampire, because we wouldn’t have to deal with makeup.  I think the only makeup we did was to paint on the Dracula widow’s peak.  There are pictures of this somewhere, and I’d almost like to find them.

Growing up with this kind of shit will fuck with a person.  It’s the sort of thing that made me give the finger to Swine Flu and just stay in bed during that ordeal.  I’m sick.  That’s just my default state.  So I’m a little more sick than usual?  That’s no big deal.  But when your baseline is already at half the optimum level, it makes it difficult to tell if you’re REALLY sick or not sometimes.

I did tell Robin Hood last month, while I was dying of not!plague, that if the lymph nodes under my arms started to swell up, I’d make an appointment.  They never did; at least, not that I noticed then.  Now, though?  Oh god.  The one under my left arm is so big and so hard that just putting my arm down hurts and makes my hand go a bit numb. That ain’t right.  The ones in my neck are a bit stiff as well, though nowhere near where they were last month.  Can’t find any of the supraclavicle ones, or the ones in the stomach or in the groin.  (A perk of growing up always sick: you know how to find these things.)  The ones in my neck are rarely gone completely.  But the underarm ones have always been a bit alarming.  They’re the ones that take care of infection in your arm.  Or they’re a warning for some pretty nasty cancers.  Which, you know.  It probably isn’t, but watching someone right now slowly be torn apart by stomach cancer is sort of setting me on edge.  So, I’ve made an appointment, but the earliest I can get in is the 23rd.  When the dude asked what my concern was, and I told him, he very quickly offered to put me on the list to take over the spot of any cancellations in the clinic.  So.  You know.  Probably nothing, and probably just a standard thing, but the timing of that conversation sort of put me on edge a little more.  Especially since there’s no cause for any infection anywhere right now.  Unless it really is the plague, and I’m not just not showing any of the physical signs of my body rotting to bits?  Pretty sure it doesn’t move that slowly, though.  Still.  Going to the doctor to see what’s up.
