It took me two hours to figure out how to override tumblr's stupid dashboard icons and replace them with Pegasus stargate glyphs. Also, my tumblr home button is now the Stargate Pegasus.

Monday was my first day of class. A guy sits next to me, very nice, we start chatting a bit. He asks to be facebook friends - I never get on facebook, but I figure this is a good way to exchange notes or something if one of us misses class. Wednesday, he sits next to me again. We talk a bit more, he’s nice, and he starts talking about hanging out when we’re not in class. I don’t have a lot of free time, but I hesitantly agree. We exchange skype names.

Suddenly he’s talking about going out? On dates. Like, what is my favorite thing to do on a date, am I really cuddly, what kind of things should we do on a date. And I’m just like ????? When did dating come into this??? I’ve seen you in person twice, for 2 hours each (4 hours total). How…when did I give you any sign that I am romantically interested? So I told him that I’d rather we get to know each other first before we do any dating.

He texted me today at work, but I was too busy to respond. I get on skype tonight and he’s all, “I don’t think a relationship can work out between us and I only see us as friends getting to know each other. I kept thinking all day about this. I need to be touched, talked to everyday, kissed, cuddled, etc. I’m very touchy feely, sorta sexual. And you not being a affectionate or touchy person just made me think. :(”

I mean, on the one hand I’m relieved. Thank god I got out of that pretty quick. On the other hand, who the fuck are you to tell me I’m not affectionate? I’ll concede I’m not a touchy person - I’m too self-conscious and shy to feel comfortable hugging people, because all I worry about is if I smell bad, how long should the hug last for, how tight do I squeeze - at least until I get to know them. But I barely know you, and you think you can judge how affectionate I am? Fuck you, I am super affectionate. I love my friends. Granted, most aren't physically present, but I'll write them fic or make gifs or send them links to things I think they'll enjoy, and I do all of it because I want to make them smile or laugh, or somehow brighten their day.

hiswasburgundy asked me over on tumblr for some trope-y McShep fic. Rather than rec'ing a few and moving on, I decided to recommend fic for every category listed on fanlore. Not every category was filled and some only have one or two fics. I tried not to repeat any fics, though some fit into more than one category.

This list is by no means comprehensive. Feel free to leave a comment with fics if you want to add to a category :)

TUMBLR JUST DELETED ALL THE LINKS TO MY HUGE TROPE LIST, LEAVING JUST THE AUTHORS AND TITLES.

I'M GOING TO CRY.

TEARS.

(I hope it fixes itself because I do not have the energy to go back and re-link everything. Everyone might just have to google the fics themselves)

In homage to all of those "100 Days of Happy" posts, I'm going to call my weekly updates "Happy Week". Lets hope it lives up to its name~ I'm posting this one super late - I meant to post every Sunday. Only second week in and I'm already slipping, whoops.

Positives!Collapse )

In fannish news, I have taken on a very stupid, ambitious undertaking. Someone new to the fandom asked for some trope-y McShep recs, and I was pretty overwhelmed by the sheer number of possible recs. So I found this list on fanlore and...decided to rec fic for each category? Oh god, so many categories, so many fic. I'm not rec'ing stuff for each category, but I'm down to "Crossover". I probably won't do the last category, though I'll link to my pinboard at the end, lol. I'll post the fic list here when I'm done :)

I blame squidgiepdx for my latest obsession :D I even have an idea for a fic, though with the Conspiracy Challenge coming up I'm hoping it doesn't eat up all my time and writing energy. We'll see~

Cut for 4 gifs, two of them largeCollapse )

I've decided to try and post at least once a week about things that aren't just complaints about the crappiness of life :P

First, a tiny gift for squidgiepdx:

Surprise!Collapse )

story_works is hosting a Conspiracy Theory challenge, which I've signed up for. I think I need a kick in the pants to get some writing done, since I haven't done any in ages. So many plans, but so much laziness to overcome lol. I'll be doing a Men in Black crossover thing, though as it stands I don't know how much of the fic is actually going to focus on the crossover aspect - it may end up being more of a background thing. But a friend on tumblr gave me this fantastic detail for the fic that I'm hoping I have fun with :D

I have squidgiepdx's new fic to read, which looks really good. The author of Mer's Moving Castle recently posted on tumblr asking if someone is willing to read through the rest of the fic before she posts. I volunteered (though I have to reread what she already has posted) and I'm super excited. I like this author and I'm very intrigued by the fic.

I remember now why I don't post every week - nothing much happens in my life that's worth reporting, lol. I work and read~
