The bigbang_mixupchallenge is a bigbang challenge that closely resembles a reverse bang. It mixes up the order of the challenge—first, a fanmix is created. This fanmix tells the story. It will then be claimed by an author who will write a piece of fiction (that tells the story they read the fanmix to have), which an artist will then claim (this is pretty straightforward--the artist creates art based on the story).

Disclaimer: Music mixes are not required to be downloadable; online playlist sites are an alternative option, even encouraged. Please keep in mind that if you join and eventually download mixes that US law states all downloaded music must be deleted within 24 hours if it has not been purchased.

Alive and other things

First: Alive. Coping well. Much better, actually.

Second: Boo-boo finger makes it hard to type. Stitches out, splint on for next 2 weeks. ETA: Yes, those stitches WERE right in the joint-fold bit. Yes, they tugged a fuckton. Toaster ovens are dangerous, yo,

Third: BigBang_Mixup. OMGWTFPOLARBEAR. I signed up again. And unlike the Inception Bang, I will DO THIS THING.

Fourth: ♥

Finally: aj;lskfjsdk TEEN WOLF. WHY.

Merry Time of Year!

Thank you for being there. Thank you for being amazing to me. Merry Time-of-Year to all of you.

So that's happening.

Last night Ed and I talked. In part because y'all are awesome. But mostly because I couldn't stop pushing.

No, there is nobody else. I knew this before and it's not something I've doubted.

But last night he admitted that he didn't want to hurt me or the kids--didn't want to do this but it's something he needs. He knew pretty much when he brought the idea up that it was going to end in divorce. I'll probably be mad at him later but for now I'm not. Ed's messed up inside and he truly wasn't sure what was going to hurt more.

So. For now, nothing much is going to change. There's a lot for us to sort through and to do to make this easier on the kids. We're not going to rush this. This is not an acrimonious divorce. There is still a great deal of care. So, going forward with the knowledge of what is and what isn't and making plans with input from the kids. We'll get through it. Ironically, we'll get through divorce together.

Telling the kids was the worst thing I've ever done.

Real Life Update

No matter how much I stay away from the internet, coming back in fits and starts, things aren't easier to deal with. And I figured that some of you are actually interested so. Update.

I feel I should make a "the first cut is the deepest" joke here.Collapse )

Hey! It's a birthday!

It's flange5's birthday! She's amazing and I feel like I should thank her family for giving her to us. I love her so much.

I know your life hasn't been easy lately so I propose that this next year be as amazing as you are. Or even half as amazing. I love you, Angela. Happy birthday.

My heart

I know the best people in the world. This is not hyperbole as far as I am concerned this is nothing but the absolute truth. Today my family finally managed to pick up a package that showed up earlier this week. Today, when I came home from work, I found a thousand paper cranes.

I busrt into tears because my heart. My sister said 'somebody sure cares a lot about your marriage' and I said 'she cares about my happiness'. Because I know that's the wish folded into the cranes: for my happiness, no matter what happens. I think this is the happiest and the most at peace I have been in months, possibly in over a year. I'll be okay, no matter what, and no matter what I'll be happy all the time once again.

There aren't words.

Poll questions and a bit of Finding Nino

RL Update: Things are not at all better. I'm not sure if this feels unreal or unavoidable now.

POLL QUESTIONS. Guys. You guys, what the hell is wrong with me? I need thoughts. And I know it's Inception and very, very, very few of you have seen the movie and/or give a crap for the fandom. But. Thoughts. Braining, yes.

Poll #1864561 Damn it, Circe, did you join another big bang?
This poll is closed.

I should write....

AU kidfic wherein Arthur raises Dom and Ari and Eames is jailbait
hookers who fall in love and are possibly both jailbait
FAKE hookers who fall in love and aren't jailbait but cops
something canon compliant
something I will suggest in the comments
ticky box AU wherein Arthur is the box and Eames is the ticky

And now, because I like to package asking you for things with fic, a bit of Finding Nino. This is for Leader, who once said she wanted to see Nino give in.

Let"s see if I remember how to do this...Collapse )

Glee fic. I don't even, you guys.

I still don't watch Glee. I had this idea right around the time I wrote my first (and only other) fic for Glee. I wrote a handful of scenes and then found out that the show went a totally different direction, so I just left it. I have a very hard time ignoring canon. I figured I'd eventually post it as dead fic.

Instead my life has been kind of shit. And by kind of I mean 'really' and I miss the hell out of everybody but I just can't. I know I can and that means the world to me. Just like before I've printed out the things everybody has said to me during this blackout time and they're up on the wall, a touchstone. I literally touch them before I leave my room, every time, every day. You guys are a lifeline, a saving grace, a joy.

Which has not a lot to do with why I finished this fic. And also everything to do with it. I don't know. I wanted to write but I couldn't start something new, so finishing something old and screwing where the show decided to go happened instead. Should I tell you this deals with Karofsky and Kurt? It's mostly a Karofsky fic, though.

I'm considering turning off comments so if that happens, it's just because I'm kind of easily overwhelmed right now.

Also: Un-beta'd. Completely. And I finished it and posted it. If it were a baby it'd be covered in birthing goo and stuff. Yeah, mental images. Sorry.

Nothing in life will ever come that easy; doesn"t mean it has to be that hard.Collapse )
