Belated Happy Birthday to [personal profile] ashen_key, my prompt was Kore and Demeter having a good day and I had a strange idea of a travel writer ending up in their part of the world. I hope this makes you smile as I feel lucky to have you in my life.

Summary:

A slightly belated birthday fic for Ashie who asked for Kore and Demeter having a good day. My mind immediately went to how would they react to a travel writer who arrived fully in my head. In this fic, Kore and Demeter have a little fun with a writer who's appeared in their midst and end up helping their village even more.


Set in a modern world where after all the trouble over Kore's kidnapping, they went and built a house in Southern France along with the early Greek colonists and have lived there since.


I hope you enjoy it, Ashie.

I'm currently sitting in Brooklyn after a day of travel to New York City and lots of reading in various cafes around Union Square. I'm up here because my life is rather strange, the University of Victoria invited me as an alumna to a lecture and reception at the UN tomorrow night. That means I get to see [personal profile] skygiants and [profile] arushindoll for a few days before heading back down to Delaware for my father's 75th birthday party. Then on Monday, I get to start volunteering at my local library and there's a job opening for a youth librarian at the library near where my brother lives in New Jersey. I feel like good things are coming my way and that its time to get to work creating the sort of life I want. That means focusing more on looking for jobs and cover letters and putting myself out there to be seen by the people I want to see me. Also just being in New York City always revitalizes me because it gives me a great sense of how diverse and wonderful the world is and how I can connect to it. I spent most of my afternoon sitting in a gorgeous cafe called Argo Tea reading the newest October Daye novel and feeling tired but content.

I love that Uncle Rob has hit upon where I am beautifully.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you were about to run in a long-distance
race, you wouldn't eat a dozen doughnuts. Right? If you were planning to
leave your native land and spend a year living in Ethiopia, you wouldn't
immerse yourself in learning how to speak Chinese in the month before
you departed. Right? In that spirit, I hope you'll be smart about the
preparations you make in the coming weeks. This will be a time to prime
yourself for the adventures in self-expression that will bloom in late
September and the month of October. What is it you want to create at
that time? What would you like to show the world about yourself?


In that same spirit, I recently complete two fics for exchanges that I can't share yet but I'm proud of both of them. They were in fandoms I know but focusing on characters that I don't normally write about and I hope their recipients end up liking them.

Fic Friday last week was wonderful and I wrote a good deal.

A reminder

ceitfianna: (Charles/Erik-remake the world)
As it rains outside, I'm sitting and listening to the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington on NPR and remembering why I chose to be an educator and a librarian. This past year while I worked in the suburbs around Detroit, I learned a lot by seeing how the internet has opened ways for young people to explore more of the world and question it. Yet I also saw how adults wouldn't listen because there were some truths that they weren't ready to deal with. I hope that the speeches today are heard and do make a change because listening to each other and understanding that we all need each other matters. Its heartening to hear the lists of everyone who counts in the speeches because it shows that in fifty years, more people are recognized. There's a lot to do and if I can help by providing access to books that better reflect the make up of America and access to online resources and a safe space for young people then I'll do it.

I've been rattling around in my parents' house in Delaware, which I really needed. Being by the coast makes me happy and settled in a way that's helps me feel better. Part of that is lots of pictures because this area is beautiful and my parents have created a wonderful haven for themselves here. Most of the pictures have been posted on my Twitter and Tumblr, but if you don't follow me there, on Instagram I'm here and you can look over them. Sadly Instagram doesn't make it easy to post images into blog posts or else I'd do that more often. I've been going for walks and taking care of various errands plus finishing up a few fics. Also due to being a writer, I listen to this history and find myself wanting to write about Charles listening to these speeches with his first few students and realizing that change can come about. I really wish that Pacific Rim was playing somewhere nearby because I could do with a rewatch of it.

One nice benefit of my parents' place is that they have a big TV, no cable but an Apple TV so I've been catching up on various shows. I've now watched most of the older seasons of Warehouse 13, the first season of New Girl, which I loved, some of Parks and Recreation which didn't really catch me, The Vicar of Dibley and various other movies and shows that catch my attention. Sadly I haven't figured out how to mirror my computer on the TV, I think its because my laptop is older than Airplay, but I'll sort it out at some point. And I hope soon to start working at my local library, which will be wonderful. Its a great library and a place that I enjoy being in.

FicFriday returned last week with lots of wonderful prompts.

My original plan for today was to go out somewhere either to the DIA or the Detroit Zoo, but instead I slept in wonderfully long and late. It turns out that I needed it and then I went and enjoyed a nice lunch. I opened up my package from my parents which had homemade chocolate-hazelnut brownies, which are delicious, lovely earrings with a circle of red and blue glass and a pile of Agatha Christie mysteries. One of them is a Poirot, which I recently bought for myself to reread as I was having a kind of craving for it. I love that we think that much alike. Early, my mother also sent me a Lush gift card which I haven't used yet but have ideas for.

Tomorrow if the weather's nice, I will head out to the zoo and then next week will be odd but good. None of the last days are actually full days so Friday really was my last full day of school. It was a nice day, chaotic and fun and it struck me how I've made an impression, the head of maintenance just kept talking to me about the history of the school and his experiences. And after work when I was eating a sandwich, two high school kids saw me and checked in. I think that might have been because one I was gone for so long and two because my eyes watering and contacts being horrible made it seem like I might have been crying. Other people checked in with me too, it was a good day. I'll probably have more feelings as time goes on but for now, I can look back at this year and be thankful for what I've learned and the trust put in me by the kids and others at the school. Wherever I go next, I'm to quote Wicked changed for good.

I realized due to heading off on my roadtrip that I never got around to writing up last Friday's fics and I ended up doing some this Friday as well. Its going to be a long list.

I just posted my first fic over on [community profile] queer_fest which is one that clicked for me when I read the prompt and this FicFriday was busy. Life is full of various good things as I'm currently hanging out with [personal profile] the_croupier and got to go to Dawn Treader where I picked up many wonderful books. I've really needed this break.

For FicFriday, I wrote a few fics on this journal and then was very busy on Twitter.

I ended up doing my grocery shopping which helped me feel a little better. The next few weeks are going to be strange but I'll get through them. I also discovered that there's some sort of art fair happening in one of the towns near where I live on my birthday, so that's something I might do.

This Friday was a really good one for fic as the AU meme was going around and I filled prompts on my LJ and on DW. They ended up getting rather longer, I do plan on spinning out that teen!Charles at the Warehouse into a larger fic and I'm still open to more prompts.

Over on Twitter, I did a few prompts, Fic Friday's been quiet but then this has been a hard year for a lot of people. Lots of sickness and life being tough.

My break is off to a nice start. On my drive down, I had a wonderful stop with [personal profile] muji where we had lunch and ice cream and a great time talking. The timing for getting off the road was perfect and hope its not too long before we can talk again. Then the rest of the drive went well and I ended up watching Thor with my parents. They ended up liking it, my mother more than my father, which make sense. He doesn't like movies with fast cuts, but my mom wants to see all the other films in that verse.

Yesterday was very full as there was a progressive Easter dinner, appetizers at a house a block over then the main meal at my parents' house and dessert. It was delicious food, good company and I kept getting all sorts of interesting advice on how to deal with my work stuff. A real range from speak your truth and get out of there to you just have to put up with this kind of stuff at times. Its given me a lot to think about.

After I finish this post, I'm going to walk into town for some lunch and tonight, there might be an EP of someone. I'm just enjoying feeling relaxed and that I don't have to do anything.

Since I was on the road on Friday, I spent the night in my hotel writing a lot of Friday Fic.

Tonight I'm going to have Demeter bartend at [community profile] milliways_bar in honor of Felix Gaeta and the fact that I don't have to wake up terribly early tomorrow. I'm taking my car in for maintenance at 9:30 and then conferences don't even start until 2 pm, then at noon on Thursday.

I actually will have time to sleep and eat and read since I started My Life in France by Julia Child yesterday and love it. I want to be more like her, she was brave and daring with such a joy in how she lived her life.

I've decided to really embrace my latest horoscope from Uncle Rob:

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The coming week will be an excellent time to
wash dishes, clean bathrooms, scrub floors, vacuum carpets, wash
windows, do laundry, and clean the refrigerator. The more drudge work
you do, the better you'll feel. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The truth is, you now
have astrological license to minimize your participation in boring tasks like
the ones I named. It's high time for you to seek out the most interesting
work and play possible.


I adore that phrase play possible and plan on trying to connect with people and write just be me for the break. My body's been feeling worn out and unhealthy of late, so there are going to be walks, because Spring is here, no matter the temperature.

Also since [personal profile] dodger_sister was curious about it and I'm proud of what I have, here's a snippet of my [community profile] queer_fest story.

A good moment )
ceitfianna: (Dean time rambles on)
Life is feeling nice. I've got a plan for heading back to work. I'm going to do my best, they've given me goals, I'll reach them and keep on doing what I think the library needs as well.

Then at the end of March, I get a slightly longer break in which I hope to try and see people and get to visit NYC. My visit with [personal profile] dodger_sister was wonderful, lots of lazing about. I'm now someone that her cats know, which makes me incredibly happy. Then I came home to a package of goodies from [personal profile] ladyoflorien and my place, it feels nice to have another night to rest and prepare myself before going back to work.

I introduced her to Becoming Jane which prompted me to finally finish a fix-it fic for it as well as some EPs. I got to thread Tom and Jane with [personal profile] dynastessa again and it was painful and lovely. Now I just need someone to beta it for me. Anyone up for betaing a post-canon Becoming Jane fic, its only about 1700 words?

I've also been catching up on Boardwalk Empire and I love it. My free HBO thing ran out but while I had it, I happened to watch a good chunk on the third season. I'll be honest, the first reason I stayed watching was Charlie Cox being Irish and dangerous, then the story pulled me in. I'm in the midst of seeing the second season and need to get the music and possibly buy the DVDs. I could play Margaret Thompson as her journey is painful but she keeps finding a way.

This meme is floating around and I love the idea of it. Last seen at [personal profile] ashen_key:

Tell me about stories you think I should write. I mean, if you could sit me down for a day or whatever and say, "Ok, I want you to write this story for me," what would that story be?

I'm not actually promising to *write* any of these, mind you, but it's fun anyway. And who knows if I'll be inspired!


Yesterday was a good FicFriday with a theme of horses for the millirodeo.

Today was quiet but it had a few really bright spots. One of the main middle school teachers has really taken me under her wing and she at the end of today asked me to watch one of her classes on Monday. She's part of a search committee that keeps meeting when she's teaching, so I'm helping her out. It feels wonderful to know that I'm trusted that much.

This past week was overall pretty quiet because next week are exams so all the kids have been fairly focused on work. My two programmers have been full of energy as always but they do tell me what they're doing, which I'm grateful for. Sometimes they kind of push to see what I'll let them do and they know I'm going to keep an eye on it but I don't think they begrudge me. It feels like they're glad I'm taking an interest even though they would like it better if I let them do all they wanted to.

The weather has also gone from bitterly cold to wet and warmer, which I like. Tomorrow I think I'm going to wander around downtown Birmingham, spend some holiday money and maybe catch a movie. I'm also hoping to do more setting up of my apartment. At this point there aren't a lot of boxes left but there's nothing on the walls and that always makes me feel like my place is even more mine. I want to get a shelving unit for my kitchen as my cupboards are nice but don't hold all my stuff and I want more options for arranging. I promise that there will be pictures on here of the place soon.

Now in fic news, I just wrote a fill for the Aren't You Glad You Left Livejournal" Anniversary Fic Exchange/Festival/Creatathon. Technically for this fill, I was filling my own prompt but the idea was there and there's fic, that's the bit that counts. I'll post it up on Ao3 later tonight.

An understanding. X-Men movieverse, Batman Nolanverse, Charles Xavier, the Joker, John Blake, PG for language and mentions of violence.

It was also a nicely busy Twitter Fic Friday, so here are all those fills. Looking over apparently it was a matter of lots of requests from a few people, still I like all that I wrote.

I've been running ever so slightly late for work this week and the last as all the stress of what I have to get done has been catching up with me. Today I took that as a sign and didn't go into work, which was what I needed. I've slept in and been able to knock a couple of things off my to do list. I now have more contacts, have ordered a really lovely pair of glasses though glasses are my back ups but still, these are cute and an investment.

Hello to everyone from the friending meme, I figure I should tell you something about myself now I'm not in as bad a place as I was yesterday.

-In September I started a job as a middle/high school librarian in a small independent school in the Michigan suburbs after spending a year looking for a job and living in Ann Arbor. I got my MSI degree at UoM and stayed there in the hopes of finding something. I write a lot about this job as the school hasn't had a full time librarian for a couple of years so I'm helping to define the position while I work. This is exciting and stressful and takes up a good bit of space here. If you'd like more context on my work, I have a librarian blog and my work tag is cowboy school.

-The other thing that takes up a good part of my time is [community profile] milliways_bar, a panfandom roleplaying game that I've been at since February 2006 or 2007, I'd have to check my dates. Milliways is one of my happiest places on the web and I'll often write about it on here as well as Milliways' specific fic. Over there I roleplay Will Scarlett from Robin Hood legends, Charles Xavier from X-Men: First Class, Sameth from the Abhorsen Chronicles, William Evans from 3:10 to Yuma, Moist von Lipwig from Discworld, Demeter from Greek Mythology, Jane Austen from Becoming Jane, Tumnus from Narnia, mainly book with some movie influences and The Pirate King from The Pirates of Penzance, 1983 Kevin Kline flavor.

-In terms of writing, I love finding ficathons to write for but often will be working on various pieces. The current fandom I'm writing the most for is X-Men: First Class because Charles Xavier creates far too many plot bunnies for me. I also roleplay him in Milliways and his point of view fits me. I've been lately getting into fic exchanges as I love them. This is my fourth year doing Yuletide, my second doing ineedmyfics and my first year doing the Narniaficexchange and I plan on doing more as writing for someone else makes me happy. Whenever I see a prompt meme that I like, it ends up on my journal and I try to fill all of them though sometimes they get lost.

-I grew up outside Philadelphia and consider myself an East Coaster though I've spent the last three years in Ann Arbor and have started a new job in Michigan. I love to travel and have lived abroad in New Zealand.

I think that's all for now. Two quick holiday reminders. If you would like a card and your address has changed or I've never sent you one before comment here and if you would like a gift fic comment here. I can't promise that either of them will get done by Christmas but they will happen.

I didn't write a lot of fic this week and since my parents left this morning, I haven't had a chance to post them. Well, I haven't remembered to post them, but now I can. Work is going quietly though fog has descended on where I live and I don't have my normal meeting. Its rather creepy looking outside and the school is much darker than normal. When I get home, there will be lots of tea and curling up.

For @minkhollow42

Moist, smoke and mirrors

Perception is always his greatest aid when it comes to tricking someone. He shows them how to see him and they always oblige.

Charles, crisis management

"Listen to me, you can do this. Breathe with me, Jean, focus on me and find your way to your center. I'm not going to leave."

Dem, finding good in winter

The good in Winter is how people gather together. Demeter can sit amongst generations of families who have chosen to be near.

For @DHLinton

au Hogwarts. Five years later.

They met in Hogsmeade to drink to living this long. Babs was the only one who knew what all of them had done and what they'd lost.

Today was my last day of school for the week and tomorrow I'm driving to Jackson to spend Thanksgiving with [personal profile] dodger_sister and her family. It feels so nice to know that I will be coming and going from my very own apartment. I'm still recovering from being sick but I feel much more solid at work and at home. Today was full of great moments from talking to a student about books to watching some other guys coding and talking with a teacher. Also another teacher opened up enough to complain to me about another meeting, it felt like a definite opening up.

Though I'm still rather forgetful and have a to-do list to take care of for address changes as well as other issues, but they will get done. Some of its fun stuff like finding a headboard and a nice big bookcase. I feel like I'm actually fitting in at this new job, which is a great feeling.

One thing that I almost forgot is that last week, there was a lot of writing for Fic Friday and I never posted what I had written.

I think the weirdest thing about living full time in a hotel is this awareness of how I have to get up and leave during the afternoon. It's not like I'm at my own place and can sleep in then wander around doing stuff online and other things, instead I need to get up and head out. I mean I can sleep in and its wonderful to have someone pick up after me, its just odd. The good news is that its now less than two weeks before I can move into my apartment, which means I have to start arranging utilities and various other stuff. I hope that my stuff will arrive the same day I move in, if not I will camp in the apartment until it does. I just keep going, wow, I headed back out here about August 22nd or so and since then I've been living out of suitcases and with only part of my stuff. It's going to be amazing to have my TV, my books, my kitchen stuff and more of my winter clothes.

Also I think I'm going to investigate meetup.com and even OKCupid soon, because I'm feeling a bit adrift and having people and places to connect to outside of work will help me a lot. This whole experience has brought out some of my shyness when I'm not at work because I'm very on there.

Today my wandering has taken me to the other Barnes and Noble and their cafe, which is bigger and where I won't get told that I can't plug my laptop in if the cord is anywhere people might walk. Tomorrow is the first professional development day, which I'm looking forward to. I have no idea what to expect from it and figure I'll spend most of it listening and taking notes.

Friday there was some writing though it happened kind of late. I'd love to find out where my longer fic brain has got to. I think most of my creativity has been going into Slenderman nightmares for Charles in Milliways, which works but I'd like to write other things as well. Though the Weekend DE of AU prompts worked for me.

ceitfianna: (breaking each other)
My body is being unhelpful this week, I didn't go to work on Thursday because I woke up feeling wobbly. Yesterday went okay but today I'm back to feeling out of it as my head hurts and I can't seem to find where my energy's gone off to. I apologize if I'm too quiet or snap a little bit, I haven't been feeling my best, but I'm trying to take care of myself.

I'm also worrying about lots of things even though I think I'm doing okay at work, there's just a lot to do. I have an idea for a librarian blog post of what I've done and what's in the works for this first month, but need to check with my supervisors if I should write it. As I'd like to use that blog to record some of the changes and things I notice at the school and my journey as I figure out how to do this. Writing is what helps me get through things and this is such a big job that I need to take time to stop and look at what I've done.

In good news, the roleplaying club is coming together and another student asked me to the supervisor for a video game club. I love that the kids get that I want to support them in their gaming and make it more a part of what happens at school. I just hope that I can get the teachers to see how gaming connects to the bigger conversation about living online and everything like that. It's just a lot and next week are parent-teacher conferences and I have no idea what I'll be doing during them, which is also stressful.

At Milliways, I'm loving the Slenderplot and so glad that people are willing to let Charles slip into their dreams as its a part of the way he works I find interesting. Will's not being as loud, but I'm hoping to get him more involved in the endgame as I love his connected with Jack of the Green. William's involved in a quiet way, which I like since the different levels to approach the plot are nice. Thank you [personal profile] misslucyjane for putting this together.

Yesterday was Friday, which means there was FicFriday and I wrote a nice variety.

ceitfianna: (running towards a happy ending)
I left my host's place before noon today and checked into the Holiday Inn by a little after 2. They gave me a great rate for staying longer term and there's a furnished apartment, extended stay place across the street that I'm going to talk to and see how they work out. The hope is that I'll have my own place by the end of October, but I'm going to have numerous back up plans in case that doesn't happen.

I'm going to find a thank you card and some sort of basket of goodies to thank my host for keeping me for so long. The leaving went pretty well but I want to make sure to give her a nice gift once I've had time to really stretch a bit more. Its amazing to look at the hotel room, which isn't huge but I have my own TV, there's a fridge and outlets so I can use my kettle, they'll make me breakfast and I'm within walking distance of the school and downtown Birmingham. Talking on the phone with my mom, she said that I sound more like me and I think that's true; sharing a space for so long has been much more stressful than I realized. Now that I'm not doing it, I feel like this huge weight is off of me. My mom also pointed out that finding a new place to live should be fun and since I've been feeling pressed in terms of time, it hasn't been fun, its felt horribly rushed. Now I've got more time to take my time and find the right place for me.

At the moment I'm in a Starbucks that I walked to and I'm thinking about getting myself a new ring. I should explain about the jewelery I always wear and why that's one. I think the first ring I had that I wore all the time was my high school ring, then one from a boyfriend, then I picked up this beautiful ring when I spent a month in France, then my college ring from Randolph-Macon Woman's College, I stopped wearing it when they became co-ed though it still lives next to my bed. After that I somehow ended up having rings to coincide with all my big life shifts, sometimes bracelets as well but my current one from Ann Arbor is still together and has next to it a bracelet from my older brother and his wife that was a Christmas present. They love buying me jewelery, but it doesn't always perfectly fit my style, this bracelet does. The jewelery that changes every day are my earrings and necklace and I have many options for those, but watch, bracelets and ring stay the same. Just since my amber ring was getting bent and broken, I haven't been wearing it and its time for a new one. I can feel the callous it created as I have big knuckled and small fingers.

Tonight I'm considering going to see possibly Looper if I can find it at one of the two theaters in town here, but if I can't I will enjoy watching my very own TV. I'm going to miss Zadie snuggles when I come home, but not having to pass through someone else's space will be fantastic.

Tomorrow is the All School Picnic, which sounds like a bit of a carnival with lots of groups like clubs, teams and classes selling stuff for fundraisers. It should be a lot of fun and rather chaotic but I don't have to stay for all of it just as much as I want and then Monday, I will be so much closer to school. This was the right step for me.

Now to post all the fic I wrote yesterday as there were a lot of them and I'd rather not lose track of them.
Friday Fics )
ceitfianna: (Green Leaf)
In the past two days, there have been the welcome back meeting for the entire faculty/staff, orientations for 6th graders and new 7th to 12th graders and a campus meeting for all the faculty/staff of the Middle/Upper School. My list of things to research and teach people keeps on growing as I still have some paperwork to get done, but I hope by Thursday to have all the paperwork in and time to actually call the realtor. Then there will be a party at the Upper School head's place for unwinding, Friday off and a long weekend before I get used to waking up far too early. I know that I won't be at school quite as much as some teachers but my plan is to be visible at the start.

An interaction that made me happy is that yesterday after the 6th grade orientation, two different parents came up and said, you're going to be seeing a lot of my daughter. It was that moment of oh yes, this is my sort of place. Also I'm learning that I need time to decompress after my days as they're very socially heavy. Tonight I stopped at a cafe on the way back from school, then came back earlier to the place I'm staying to find out my hostess is going out, which works for me. At some point, I'll do another meal with her, but currently having space to myself as I process everything helps a lot.

Last Friday I actually wrote some FicFriday stuff but completely forgot to post it as I was still thinking over everything and then yesterday was simply long. My current WiP is going slowly but I think I should be able to get it done in time if I choose a day to just write.

I'm also posting a meme from [personal profile] fightingthecage about fandom as I like the questions.

I realized last night why the tiredness I'm going through feels familiar, I honestly feel jet lagged. Its weird but makes sense after all the packing and then all the driving, my body isn't sure what its supposed to be doing. This also means I haven't been doing all the loose end errands I need to just yet, but I will. The other fun thing is my father has changed to Gmail and I'm now the closest computer person at some points. Its wonderful to see him figuring stuff out.

Also I can't watch the Olympics and it sucks. My parents recently gave up their cable and apparently in this area, without cable you can't even get normal TV stations. That means all my Olympic news comes from Twitter, Tumblr and whatever I can find, its weird, but nice. There are no annoying announcers but I really miss just watching the various sports happen. Just having the Olympics on is one of my favorite things. I might need to get myself to a sports bar or something at some point to see it. Is it possible to watch the BBC stuff in the US? Does anyone know how I could do that?

Oh and last night, I had a strange dream. I was working in a huge big box store that seemed to have a little bit of everything. My job before closing was to go around and do things with books and then I discovered a Renn Faire/LARP session in the far back. Then the dream combined confusing roleplaying with retail work, it was one of the stranger dreams I've had in a while.

Yesterday was Friday, I almost forgot that as its been a weird and long week. So I ended up writing some FicFriday stories. And tomorrow or the next day, the [community profile] narniaexchange stories will finally be posted! I won't be able to share which one's mine until later but people other than my betas can read it.

Today has been a full and rather amazing day. It began with my second interview that felt quite positive. I don't want to hope too much but I could see myself at that school.

Then I had lunch with my parents at a restaurant in Ann Arbor that I've been wanting to try called The Raven's Club and it was just as nice as I'd hoped. I had this deceptively simple grilled cheese sandwich and a good beer as there was a little rain outside.

Then headed towards work, which has been quiet as I watched streaming and muted Opening Ceremonies and giggled at Twitter and crackchat's enthusiasm. I adore the Olympics, they always give me a fuzzy feeling and I love seeing all the ceremonies and how each country puts their stamp on them. I plan on watching all of it later with sound to fully experience it, but it looks like Great Britain went for all the silly, solemn and joyful spectacle. I think finding that right balance is what works for these ceremonies; never too serious.

I've also written a good bit of FridayFic tonight and want to post them before I lose track. I'm open for more until I finish work in the next two hours, but after that won't be that online as my parents are here. I'm also so happy because I have an idea for my [community profile] ineedmyfics's prompt and my [community profile] narniaexchange fic is safely turned in.

Just a few words )
ceitfianna: (gaze to tomorrow)
This is the end of a long week for me and I'm quite happy to have finished it. Art Fair is pretty and quite busy and I'm going to avoid it today. I think I'll head to Barnes and Noble since walking into town on the Saturday of Art Fair is rather unappealing. Today will probably be the busiest day of Art Fair, which means very little space and lots of people.

I didn't write a lot this week as FridayFic were quieter due to all the horrible things that happened. I plan on seeing The Dark Knight Rises probably this week before my parents arrive as I wanted to and the movie isn't to blame that people can be awful.

Lots of good thoughts to everyone.
