I've written 3 McShep fics for fandom_stocking. We still have the rest of the week to fill out stockings, so I'm hoping to get at least two more done :)

Signs From the Universe for [personal profile] squidgiepdx [8k]
Five times John and Rodney 'meet cute', and the one time they finally end up together. AKA a string of connected meet cutes.

Take Me To The Wild for [personal profile] tarlanx [6k]
When Rodney stumbles into John's bar one evening, he learns that he and his two co-workers are not the only creatures who have left the safety of Atlantis.

On The Shelves for [personal profile] melime [1k]
Rodney's first book signing, after two years, is at John's bookstore.

I was told today that my mother called my grandmother to explain the situation - since they're going to need our new address, when we have one - and my grandmother got very angry and called my brother.

Sooo my brother came over today and said he was going to continue paying the bills. We're still going to save up as best we can to move into someplace cheaper - so we don't have to depend on my brother as much, so he can have more money for his child. But this does mean we are no longer teetering on the edge of homelessness.

I was ready to confront my brother and yell at him for what he was doing. I did tell him that if he plans to cut off us in the future (again), he needs to let us know ahead of time.

All my taxes are going toward saving up. I was hoping to use them to go to Squee Weekend, but alas, being poor strikes again.

I'm so relieved I'm lightheaded.

My brother is coming over tonight - please keep your fingers crossed that I can convince him to continue helping with the bills, for now, until I can save up some money to safely move.

The reveals have been pushed back again, understandably so (though I did spend the last two days feverishly working on a fic, had it beta'd, etc. for nothing). But it does mean there's time to drop me well wishes, fic, art, or whatever in my stocking, if you feel so inclined! I am kind of impatient for my fics to be revealed lol. Not because I think they're just that good, but because then I can stop thinking about them~

I have had a persistent cough for about a week now. My mother has wondered if perhaps I've got bronchitis again - I hope not. I've got not time to be sick! I'm getting really tired of it, though.

ETA: I also changed my dreamwidth header. It doesn't look as nice as I pictured in my head, but I kept running into problems, so it is what it is now. I spent forever taking screencaps, coloring them, etc. that when  started to have problems resizing the images to fit - and trying to make them roughly the same size - I went GOOD ENOUGH.

I was taking screencaps and this little moment just hit me. They stare at each other for so long and then look away at the same time. It just screams mutual pining and awkwardness. I love it :)

logans_girl2001 is hosting a Pride Day every Monday, where you comment on her post and talk about something that made you happy or feel proud that week. It's a great way to share some positivity :)

I'm very proud of myself for this :D

I really need to get on making that sticky post so I can start encouraging myself to write every day...

My New Year's Resolution is two-fold, the first of which - be more positive - is new. It's going to be a difficult one, since my family is always running into financial woes. The second is the same as last year: write more than the previous year. I signed up formini_wrimoin November and it really helped keep me writing. I'm thinking of making a sticky-post to keep track of my daily word count - I'll comment each day with how much I wrote. It won't always be more than 0, but hopefully I won't go days without writing.

One positive of 2016 is my success at writing more. In 2015 I wrote 6,721 words total for the year. In 2016 I wrote 45,397. I'm really proud of myself for that, even if I know some people who could write that in one story alone, lol. Hopefully I'll fill my goal of writing even more than 45k! I have tons of ideas, it's just the hard part: actually writing them.
