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.

I love arranged marriage fics! Sadly, they aren't always done well in this fandom, which is weird, because as princes of two different planets you'd think there would be a host of Thor and Loki having to marry to keep the peace between the realms. The last sort of arranged marriage fic I read ended up with Thor and Loki dead...cue unhappiness.

Good luck on figuring out which angle to use.

I think the best arranged marriage fic I've read in Thor fandom has been a tie between One Hundred Steps There by Icemaidenstory and amberfox17 - Wild Ambition Fortune's Ice Prefers.

Astolat wrote The Prince which was funny.
