Only a day late, which I am so impressed by given how big the needy list was right up until the last day or two, but [community profile] fandomgiftbox reveals have happened! I wrote:

Summary: Ray likes to tell people he's great at making decisions. Really, he is. They absolutely never go pear shaped and they always turn out really well, like when he set up Palmer Tech. That was a great decision. He's not so sure how inviting a known criminal to live with him is going to work out, but he's fairly certain it's also going to be just great. He has a good feeling about it.

(The No Superheroes, and Mick planned to rob him before saving his life but Ray thinks suggesting they become fake boyfriends is a great idea anyway, AU)

Six fics, seven fandoms, and 13k later I have had lots (and lots and lots) of fun playing in this particular sandbox. And it looks like I got an awesome giftbox of my own that I need to go explore! If you're curious about other peoples fills, the mods have an awesome spreadsheet of fills that you can sort by fandom here, as a lot of stuff didn't get cross-posted to AO3.

I thought I was doing so well yesterday and then I crumpled like a wet tissue later in the day before I got around to posting, so a double post today sorry about that folks.

I did manage some writing yesterday before the accidental afternoon nap that ended this morning, mostly in the form of a few zero drafts for treats in various places. That brought me up to a nice round 80k by the end of the week, which I was pleased by.

No writing yet today, but I want to get this up in case of further flimsy health catastrophes later in the day heh. If you don't pop dates on your checkin, I'll assume you're checking in for both days, so lemme know if you only wrote on one or the other.

(Okay, that is not actually our kitten's name, but I use it sometimes anyway, because.)

Today we had our third bath, and this time it went well!

The changes were Z's idea... )

I feel unreasonably proud of this. Kitten bathing: achievement unlocked!

kass: apples and honey (apples)
[personal profile] kass
1. Although it is after the autumn equinox in my hemisphere, it is unseasonably warm right now, so I am grateful for air conditioning, even if I feel ridiculous using it on September 24!

2. Apple-picking with Mr. Kid today! This is one of our fall traditions and it is so sweet. The orchard is near our old house. Rows and rows of beautiful apple trees stretching toward fields and hills. And we got two bags of honeycrisps, my favorite apples of them all.

3. Related to the above, there is a granola-topped apple crisp cooling now on my counter. I'm also making a chicken curry in the slow cooker to eat all week, and I've cooked up some ground turkey and vegetables with soy and sesame and cilantro and will add rice noodles to them later for dinner tonight.

4. Dishwasher (now running) and washing machine (also now running.) The fact that we have these appliances; the fact that we have power with which to run them.

5. Watching Mr. Kid gleefully play with Mr. Kitten, who has a catnip mouse and is carrying it proudly around the room in his mouth. I can't tell whether the catnip is making the kitten goofier, or whether this is just his natural three-month-old goofitude, but either way, it's adorbs.

In case you were wondering...

...the LEGO Ninjago movie is charming as hell. There's a delightfully meta frametale, plus Jackie Chan, plus bonus points for excellent use of a cat. I think I laughed as much as my kid did, and that's saying something. :-)

Only about a hundred words in the course of editing yesterdays fic, but I am with some relief less lost in that slightly unreal feverish reality where everything feels a bit odd even when you don't move (god only knows how I wrote anything there, really, let alone something somewhat worthy of posting today, I am still floored by that.) So I'm calling it quits there and going back to enjoying lying in bed without feeling like I am going to either melt into it or spontaneously fall off it, huzzah.

Somehow, God knows how because I feel like death warmed up, I was struck by the lightning bolt of sudden inspiration and madly rushed out two versions of a fic for one of the remaining [community profile] fandomgiftbox needy boxes. What even is this challenge that keeps on giving? I'm honestly not sure if the different letter format has produced better prompts for me (hilariously, the first time I perused the list of giftboxes I despaired because my shortlist was exponentially shorter than my fandom stocking shortlist usually is), or if it's just similar to my stocking flurry of activity but amplified by all the writing practice I've done. I'm definitely producing more and faster word volume and better quality first drafts more easily than I did back in January, after all.

If I get this one polished and posted in time tomorrow (assuming it doesn't turn out to be just flu med induced babbling when I proof it tomorrow of course ha, and also assuming the reveals aren't delayed anyway, cause that needy list is still fairly long...), that'll be six fics and over 13k in words (14k if you include the version of this fic that got trashed)! O_o

Either way: still feel like a walking, talking, plague ridden corpse so comments will continue to be delayed/non-existent + lemme know if I messed up your inclusion in the tallies anywhere in my feverish state. But hey, I worded and I managed today's post in time. Win/win.

Not a lot of words, but both my remaining giftbox fics are now edited!

Whiskey and Mirrors (1999 words) by shopfront
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Mirror Ezri Tigan/Jadzia Dax
Characters: Quark, Mirror Miles O'Brien, Mirror Ezri Dax, Rom (Star Trek)
Additional Tags: Time Travel, Mirror Universe, Flirting
Summary: Ezri Tigan tries a little more universe hopping in service of the rebellion, but a technical malfunction derails her plans when it sends her spinning back in time.

Which is just another reminder that I need Deep Space Nine icons, yeesh. But I am also very amused that I ended up writing and receiving DS9 fic, and if I had more time I would totally celebrate with a rewatch. Because oh Trek of my heart.

Tangentially related: I cannot wait for Discovery *high pitched noises*

[personal profile] shopfront
So far today I've added 500 words to my Helen/Will WIP and spent some time re-constructing the (well, a fairly similar, I think) scene by scene structure that I had set up in the old scrivener file that was lost in the crash. It was really nice to work on something just because rather than because there's a deadline starting to loom. I often forget the joy of fannish creation when you can take time to slowly let it grow to it's potential, which is not better or worse but very different from the joy of seeing what I can craft in a certain time frame and within prompt restrictions.

I also completed edits on one of my giftbox fics, so only four more to go. I have two more sets of beta comments waiting for me to work them into their respective fics that I'm hoping to get to today as well, but we'll see how it goes. Both need some re-writing rather than just tweaks, and I slept terribly and have a headache and bah. Monday. But I really do need to get to them sooner than later before the deadline sneaks up on me.... I'll also be obsessively stalking last minute trick or treat sign ups throughout the day of course, heh.
