Early

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
This is going to be an early post. I'm tired. I'm hurting like fuck. And in general, I'm just ready for today to fucking be over.

I do have to go back tomorrow to be refitted for the bottom partial, as well as to check on the state of the stitches... because apparently I had to have stitches put in my mouth, in at least two different places. He said it was in the upper left and lower right, but I'm starting to think that he meant from his POV, so my upper right and lower left, but I don't know. I just know that my jaw hurts like hell on the bottom left (my lower left), and if that hasn't improved by when I go back tomorrow, I might just have to scream.

I've been texting everything to [personal profile] katsuko because trying to talk hurts and my voice keeps going out. I'm glad to be able to do all that via text, because otherwise I would be having to try to talk anyway or writing everything down by hand. Either way, it's no fun at all.

I think, though, that I'm gonna take my medicated self back the hall and try to get some sleep.

Late

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, it's late, and my head hurts, but I'm actually typing this after midnight, so I can't eat anything else. I'm not supposed to drink anything else either, so that's gonna make for an interesting morning tomorrow/today.

I feel like a mogwai here: no food after midnight. Already broke the rule about getting wet though, since a shower was hella hella necessary.

Surgery tomorrow, so I'm not sure how coherent tomorrow's post will be.

Hey, who wants to join a super fun game with me?

[info]stairs is a new game starting up at the beginning of November (well, November is when plot stuff will start happening, once there's five players we can start writing). It's set in Abenterra, a pocket reality that exists outside of time and space, and entry into it is a one-way thing: once you're there, you can't go back home, no matter how long you search. But never fear, the town is full of things to do (basically anything you would want to be there can be there), and there are other worlds to explore. As stated in the FAQs: "It's sort of choose your own adventure displacement game." There are plots, things going on in the worlds you can reach from the town (and some things going on in the town) that span the month, but you can do just about anything you want. If you want to play someone going on adventures, go for it! Wanna just have somewhere to play out a ship, you can do that too! I mean, you can't go around slaughtering everyone and everything in sight, but other than that, just about anything goes. And because Abenterra exists outside of time and space, you can bring characters into it from anywhere (aside from fandoms): the past, the present, the future, other worlds, other universes, even other games. So if you had a character that you worked really hard on and then the game never opened or didn't last long, just pop them over to Abenterra and play them out!

Right now, I have one character joining the game, [info]firetamer is the latest iteration of one of my favorite characters, also one I've been playing off-and-on the longest (as in, nearly the entire time I've been RPing). But I would LOVE to bring in other characters, especially if it means getting to play with some people I haven't played with in a long time. The activity requirements are incredibly laid back: one piece of activity per character per month. Log, network, narrative, text, sext, whatever.

C'mon, come play with me! Let's brainstorm some characters to bring to this mysterious little world together! (They don't necessarily have to arrive together, they could meet / have met there.)

Angel

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I've been rewatching the last season of Angel again for some reason. Not really too sure how that ended up happening, but it did. It was a nice way to spend part of a Saturday.

Sadly, that's all I have to say for myself for today, though. I'm gonna go hurl myself at my bed and see if unconsciousness occurs.

Finally

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Seriously, I didn't think that today was ever going to get here... Then I thought it was never going to end. I've been literally at my wit's end most of the day because Glynda has been in a right mood that involved narrating every. single. thing. she's done all day. I think the only thing I didn't get a running commentary on was her breakfast, probably because she was too busy stuffing her face with cereal.

Now, mind you: I can barely get on the computer at work to check my work email before LaTrease comes over with a warning to get off the computer. Meanwhile, today, Glynda narrated her way through all of this, plus a lot more I can't remember: "oh, I like this shirt, I need a shirt like this, is ivory an all right color to buy at this point in the year, where are those lace-up pants I was looking at yesterday"... and "I think I need to get a camping theme going for [youngest granddaughter]'s Christmas, I wonder what all Amazon has for camping for little girls, oh look they have a pink flashlight"... and "I guess I need to check my checking account now, why does it want to text a PIN again, am I going to have to get a new PIN every time I check the account on this new bank, I'm going write the bank and tell them how stupid it is that I have to get a new PIN every time I go into online banking, it is just so ridiculous"... and so forth.

I guess I just really dislike seeing standards held up differently for different people.

Tethered by paperstorm [Steve/Bucky] Explicit
Steve wants to heal Bucky’s wounded soul with lips on his skin, to tie his shattered pieces back together and then spend the rest of his life making sure no one ever hurts his best friend ever again. He wants a lot of things that are too intense to just spring on someone he hasn’t seen in weeks, and before that, decades.

Steve wants to propose. But he's a little shy.

Rock-a-bye by romanticalgirl [Steve/Bucky, OFC, Avengers] Mature
Steve finds a baby on his doorstep. And someone expects him to take care of her. This is possibly the most horrifying and frightening mission Steve Rogers has ever had to undertake.

in a cabin in the woods series by belovedmuerto [Steve/Bucky] Mature
Steve finds Bucky in a cabin in the woods, two years later.

Home of the Brave by MonocerosRex [Steve/Bucky, OFCs, Avengers]
It was Bucky, standing in a pool of his own blood, one shoulder propped against the doorframe as if he could barely stand, face deathly pale. A little girl covered in dirt and blood clutched his right arm, leaves caught in her mane of springy black curls. A tiny baby was carefully cradled in his left, black streaks of grime standing out against its china-pale skin.

Zzz

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Seriously, I'm so damn ready for the weekend that it's ridiculous. This week has been so long and, at work, so cruddy that I'm just ready for it to be over. I'm not exactly looking forward to the oral surgery thing, but I'm ready for this week to be over. Like, so ready. Thankfully, it's only one more day. I can make it one more day.

I'm so exhausted, but I'm not sleepy, and it's killing me too. I think I'm gonna try to lay down and see if anything at all happens. I'm not exactly holding my breath here.

Hey, so, access/subscription and filter update time.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
About once a year, I get the urge to go on an access/subscription cleanup, where I make the whole thing approximately mutual.

Though if you don't subscribe to me, and you're one of those people that gives me access because you don't want to read my journal and still...want me to read your journal? Or don't want to hurt my feelings by revoking access? I'm not sure? I'm probably going to unsubscribe from you. It just feels weird. You'll probably never read this post anyway, so it's no big deal to anyone but me!

Drop a comment if a change gets made and you have strong feelings.

Yuletide Letter (2018)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

Dear Yuletide Writer,


Thank you so much for volunteering to write a fic for me! Please feel free to take a look around my journal if you want to see what kinds of stories I like. You can find my Fanfic Masterlist here, and the fics are also tagged by fandom and/or title in the sidebar. As you can see, I mostly read and write m/m slash, but if you don't ship the male couples, I would be perfectly happy with a gen story too!


My name on A03 is geri_chan, the same as here on DW/LJ/IJ.


Cut for possible canon spoilers... )

Train wreck

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Today was a bit of a train wreck at work. Hell, I was going around calling it a dumpster fire (and not in a good, fandom kind of way). Apparently, we had all kinds of technical issues at opening this morning, where two testing computers, the admin computer, and the printer were all down when Glynda got there (supposedly), so we were late getting people started in the morning, which made us late getting people in for the afternoon. Add to this Glynda and Richard being cynical ass bitches with exactly zero chill, multiply by anxiety, add in a MARTA train that was "experiencing major delays" (again), and you would have where I've been at most of the day today.

Either way, I'm going to go throw my ass in my bed before the ceiling falls in or something equally drastic.

Tuesdays

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I wish I knew why it was always Tuesdays when the crazies and the assholes come to Prometric. The folks with attitudes, the ones who act like we should be the ones feeling privileged that they decided to come test with us, the ones who act like they're the only ones testing that entire day, the ones who honestly seem to believe that other people shouldn't get the same amount of attention and such as they get... They all always come on Tuesdays.

My question is, why is it always Tuesdays? Why not Mondays, so I can get the nastiness out of the way at the very beginning of the week? Maybe that's why.

I have an interview set with the Testing department at GSU's Dunwoody campus on the 1st of November. I'm not exactly holding my breath here on this job, but eh, it's worth trying for.

Also, someone get me off Twitter before I end up ♥-ing more of Chris Evans' tweets. Seriously. No, seriously. I have too much love for the man as it is without him being all Captain America (and better) all over the place. Because if I have a celebrity crush... it's him. Okay? It's him.

And wow, it's stupid late, and I have work tomorrow. I'll just be dragging myself off to bed now. Good night, my freaky darlings.

Well, something

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I can't believe it's the middle of October already. It doesn't seem like it should be possible, and yet... Somehow this year is almost over. I don't get it. I don't know how it happened. It doesn't seem like July was that long ago. Admittedly, though, further back than that is a little blurry.

I do have to say that I was going to Publix the other day, and I just got so damn confused because I couldn't figure out why we weren't turning down into the Monroe Street shopping center. Duh, because we aren't in Tallahassee. Which might not be the worst thing after Hurricane Michael. The last of my Tallahassee friends just got their power back on today, after all.

But... yeah... that's all I've got for myself for today. Good night, all.

Oww

Something set my skin off fierce. I haven't been outside for more than a few seconds today, so I'm guessing it's something I wore or touched at home. My neck, jawline, chest, and hands -- specifically, my fingers -- are a mess of itchy, watery bubbles.

Saying itchy feels like a misnomer. It's not descriptive enough. It feels like, if I could scratch my entire skin off, it might almost -- almost!! -- feel better. that's the kind of itchy it feels like.

I'm hoping I'll be able to get some rest and maybe it'll be improved by morning. Wish me luck.

What an absolutely and completely lazy ass bitch I've been today. I've barely gotten up off the couch. I've napped, read Venom fanfic, dozed, read more fanfic, ate dinner when [personal profile] katsuko got home from work, watched Ocean's 8, read more fanfic, dozed some more, and started working on this (while reading fanfic). And I've had a lot of Boo cuddling me on the couch, so that's been nice too.

All that said, [personal profile] katsuko's very obviously ready for bed, so I'm gonna go on back the hall and either sleep... or resume reading on my phone. Good night, all.

The Strange and the Wonderful by ximeria [Charles/Erik, Alex, team] AU
Erik is still trying to find his way around his crazy, new job as a Warehouse agent. Every time he thinks he's got it all figured out, the universe throws him a curve ball - and he has to deal with artifacts, cranky partners, his growing attractions to the Warehouse's caretaker, and not to mention, the Warehouse itself - and its moods.

What's Money When You Got Love? by Fullmetalcarer [Charles/Erik, Charles/Shaw] Explicit noncon, AU
It's the 1930s. Prohibition is in full swing and Sebastian Shaw is coining it. Erik Lehnsherr is at the heart of Shaw's criminal empire but he wants out. Then he meets Charles Xavier, a piano player in a speakeasy, and now he's desperate to get out. But what if he's drawing Charles into his dangerous world and into the orbit of Shaw? Can their love survive? Can they survive?

5 Things You Need To Know About Charles And 1 About Erik by Fullmetalcarer [Charles/Erik] Explicit AU
The first thing you need to know about Charles Xavier is that Erik Lehnsherr hates him...

The Snow-Scorched Earth by taesan [Charles/Erik] Explicit AU
After a failed experiment freezes the Earth's core, the survivors live on a train whose unceasing engine protects them from the cold. While the human elite enjoy limited luxury at the Front, the mutants, collared and deprived of their powers, endure dire conditions in the Tail. Whoever controls the Engine controls the train, so Charles hatches an ingenious plan that will bring Erik, the leader of the rebellion, to the Front. Snowpiercer AU.

I... feel seriously gross today. I woke up with the same headache I went to bed with, and I kept it for the most of the day. It's really only just started to fade out some. I'm not enjoying it, so it's a good thing that it's going. Hell, I've spent most of the day feeling like if I could just throw up, I would feel better. It never happened, but maybe I'm on the mend.

And in my daze I've had going for the last several hours, I've been reading Venom fanfic. Don't save me. Send more fic.
