☂ all the fun things go by that name


Things are really taking off at work. 'Tis the season, and all that. I'm always drained by Saturday night, and two days doesn't seem like enough to recover. I work Christmas Eve, 9am to 6pm (when the store closes). My boss said she was scheduling a bunch of people to work 7-4, so at least I'll have help.

I finished Stranger Things, which was amazing. It's also resulted in my first ot3 - Jonathan/Nancy/Steve. Most of the fic for them is kind of same-y though, so I haven't read everything (not that there's much to read). I loved watching the kids on the show, but not enough to seek out fic for them. Joyce/Hopper tends to be a background pairing, so I haven't really read anything for them either. I've been looking for something to replace ST to watch on my own and I've started Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, which is entirely the fault of squidgiepdx! There are only 7 episodes, so it shouldn't take me too long to finish, and then I think I'll watch The Expanse.

fandom_stocking has gone live, and I'm hoping to do fills for at least three people (tarlanx, squidgiepdx, and goddess47). Ideally, I'd like to do something for all the McShep shippers, but given how slow at writing I am and the way my ideas tend to get out of, I want to do something for Winter Magic. I have a teeth-rottingly sweet fic idea that I can hopefully do justice for that. I'm considering signing up for my own stocking (I have two days left to decide), but I worry about giving back as much as I receive. I'm already 3k into a fill for tarlanx, so I am hopeful about getting things done.

sgamadison is doing a December Love Meme over on her journal. Stop by and check it out - it's inspiring some great fandom love :)

I got into a fight with some family members on facebook about the 2016 presidential election. My aunt called my words "hateful", which I found darkly amusing, considering the crap Trump has said and gotten away with. My aunt is rich, white, and married. She has little to worry about, with him. These fights have made me very nervous about Christmas, however. I doubt they'll say anything, as it'll be a holiday and they'll want it to be a nice one, but they can be passive aggressive or ignore me completely...I guess we'll see.

I have a 6 page paper due on Wednesday I have no motivation to work on. And next time I get some spare money, I'm getting my nose pierced.

That's it for updates *shrug*
