mortalcity: Girl and a wolf, sleeping together in the grass. (wolves | pack animals)
Ugh, I keep passing out stupid early every night and sleeping forever. No one let me take a nap tonight. Just... don't. Yell at me to get coffee instead.

On the bright side, I finished a short ficlet last night! It's the first time I've actually written in this universe, so I'm not... entirely sure what I'm doing, but I had some [community profile] rainbowfic novelty beads that kind of demanded it, so. Wild Girls! Posted here if you're in [community profile] rainbowfic and here if you're not (that comm is locked because I don't like posting original fic publicly, but I will immediately accept any join requests from anyone I actually recognize).

I don't have to be in my office for another couple hours, but I think today I will be editing some wiki pages annnd writing another WG ficlet. Hopefully not getting lost in wolf vidoes on YouTube again, but I can't promise anything. This month has been a complete mess, but I am slowly bouncing back.

mortalcity: Text: "We stopped checking for monsters under our bed when we realized they were inside of us." (OaS | DMA: Tegan)
Finished my first story for [community profile] rainbowfic! I'm just so glad to be finishing things recently and I need this to continue.

Crossposted fic to rainbowfic and onasaturday (OAS comm is locked but if you follow me here you're welcome to join). Fairies are terrible, but we all knew this already. Also Tegan is sad and needs all the hugs. (This is a backstory fic, so she does get them eventually. Just not from her family, but that's for the best.)

Idk if I'm writing today. I am ahead of schedule, I went out in the world for groceries, and people in RP-land are being ridiculous (one specific person, really), which has sapped the very last bit of care I have for today. I might just nest in game-building and video games?

Actual work again tomorrow.
mortalcity: Anya Corazon and Rikki Barnes, in costume and kissing. (Marvel | supergirlfriends)
I finished a thing!

and found - Marvel 616; Rikki + Anya + Natasha + Jess. Found families and female friendships, two of my favorite things!

This is not very many words, especially for the amount of time I spent on it, but the way things have been lately, it is still an accomplishment. Especially since I did almost 500 words of it today. Here's hoping I can keep it up as I settle back into productivity.
mortalcity: Georgia Mason's press ID. (Newsflesh | rise up while you can)
Written for one of [personal profile] yetregressing's prompts from ages ago. Writing is hard, I barely remember how to do it, blah blah blah you have all heard this story from me a hundred times over. I FINISHED SOMETHING AND I AM GOING TO CALL THAT AN ACCOMPLISHMENT.

Shaun's come closer than I have; I try not to ask anymore. I don't really want to know.

mortalcity: Alt!Olivia, looking over her shoulder. Text: "there's more than one of everything." (Fringe | more than one of everything)
Look! I can still write things! ...all I seem to want to write anymore when it comes to fanfic is daemonfic and sparklepony AUs, but I'm actually pretty okay with that. (And this is how I will be posting fic from here on out - straight to AO3 with links here, no fic journals or anything. Just FYI.)
