Hey guys! [community profile] atlantisfilmfestival is now open for posting. The minimum word count for a movie fusion is only 1k ;) There's even an ao3 collection :D This is a low-key festival, no sign ups or anything required. If you're inspired, write and post~ I know what I'd like to get done (mcshep Practical Magic au)!

After three years, my job has switched me from second shift to mostly first (with a couple second shifts thrown in). It's been a difficult transition for me. I've never been much of a morning person. Working second shift meant I could stay up a little later and sleep in more, which I haven't been able to do lately. I'm tired all the time. I haven't written anything in ages, and what I have written feels flat. Mostly I've just been reading...

I'm hoping I can force myself to finish the next chapter of my werewolf AU (which I already have a start on) and, if I finish quickly enough, maybe get something done for the Atlantis Film Festival. No promises though, given how dull I've been feeling lately.

I'm still plucking away at my [community profile] romancingmcshep fic. It's slow going, and not helped that I stupidly opened up Sims 4 two nights in a row - and thus lost two nights to it. But not this tonight!

I really wanted to cut out all the David & Patrick scenes from Schitt's Creek and create compilation videos to share the love. But vimeo only lets you upload so much, and youtube went "Copyrighted!" when I tried. I might just stick them in my dropbox and link to them, because David & Patrick are The Cutest. You can see some giftsets and such here on my tumblr. I even have a fic idea for them! A sentinel AU, because every fandom should have one.

Also, if you're not following [community profile] mcsheppers, you should be. I thought it wasn't fair that people who don't care for tumblr can't experience a steady stream of McShep stuff, so I've started crossposting. My McShep-Everyday tumblr posts 4 times a day. At the end of the day (because that's when I get out of work), I take the 4 posts and make sure they end up on dreamwidth and pillowfort. It does mean you get a sudden end-of-day McShep rush, but that's better than no rush at all. Also, it's like 95% screenshots. Still: their FACES amirite?

[personal profile] esteefee was generous and got me the Perfect Patio pack, which came with a hot tub. The deal was that I'd provide screenshots of Rodney using it. Sim!John joined Rodney without prompting, which lead to some very cute pics.

Cut for 6 picsCollapse )

Not too long ago, a friend on tumblr started posting about their adventures in The Sims 3, where they've created John & Rodney characters and are creating a storyline where they fall in love. You can read the posts here, they're adorable and fun.

Around the same time, my friend introduced me to this darkly hilarious Sims 4 youtube series. It starts off following a different character, then switches to one named Jim Pickens. He wants to romance the Grim Reaper, and takes to killing sims to get Grim to visit. And then he starts a cult. Dark subjects, I know, but the nature of Sims makes it absurd.

The final nail in the coffee is that Sims 4 is on sale 75% off, bringing it down to $10.

I bought the game. I can't stop playing the game now.

blah blahCollapse )

Happy birthday, velocitygrass! At least, according to LJ it is. I hope you had a wonderful birthday, full of only happiness and good times.

Hello, my name is Melissa and I have a podcast problem. The list of podcasts I'm in the middle of is large, but my list of ones to listen to is even larger. And itunes keeps deleting the podcasts I haven't started (I tend to download the first episode of interesting ones for later listening). So I'm putting my list here on dreamwidth. Feel free to ignore - this is mostly just for me, and it's going to be HUGE.

I updated my werewolf au.

It wouldn’t be anywhere near as coherent without the wonderful [personal profile] respoftw looking it over AND talking me down from the ledge (AGAIN). Seriously, guys. She puts up with so much.

I've got the next 'stage' of the fic planned. Hopefully I can do it justice re: Rodney's emotional growth and attachment to John & the pack.

It turns on, it'll go for longer than 5 minutes before dying. We have heat (thank god, because the next three days are in the 30s).

I can't put into words how less stressed I am with that taken care of. God.
