(I've only had this account for six years without doing a thing with it... Here's to breaking the seal, I guess.)

I'm not dead.  There's that.

Physically, I'm just fine.  It's only the brain that's rotten.  Nothing new there, though.

I don't even know if I'm excited for Series 3.  Part of me is, but I've been disconnected from fandom for so long...  I blame Tumblr.  Too many teenage girls.

I haven't written much of anything in a very long time.  I blame Dawn of the Dragons.  Stupid flash game.  At least it got me some lovin', though.

It's odd to be in a relationship again, and a long-distance one at that.  I forget how hard it is for me to balance emotions and anxiety.

I really hope 2014 is better than 2013.

Happy New Year, everyone.

Kati Sark and Dushka Niki are at it again.  I love these guys.

So I wrote a new story just in time for Halloween and posted it on AO3.  Why not post it here, you ask?  Because a few minutes after I put it up on AO3, my monitor decided to take a shit and die.  Good times.

cut for the whining. )

But anyway, here's the link to the story on AO3:

The Haunting of Molly Hooper (R for graphic violence; Gen, 8.5k words)
Summary:  Things are happening to Molly Hooper that she can't explain.

I have to warn you, it's not that good or my usual kind of thing, but I've been mainlining those real-life paranormal shows and horror movies since the beginning of the month, so.  At least I finally finished something, hooray! 

Fuck me.

Why?  Glee, why do you piss all over everything I love?

So while checking one tiny little detail about Klezmer music, I got sucked into YouTube for three hours.

Did you guys know swing remixed as techno was a thing?  I didn't know this.  My life felt somehow incomplete up until this point.

So [ profile] mazarin221b had an absolutely brilliant idea, posting a picture of Story Dice Cubes on her Tumblr (click link for the pic) for anyone to use as a kind of starting point.  I figured, 'why not?' and this happened.  It also the cleanest thing I've ever written, not even one swear word, and it's gen.  And kind of fluffy.  Ish.  Not beta'd or britpicked.

Golden Years (455 words, gen, rating: g) )

...I decided to do some googling, just for shits and giggles. 

How did they know?! )

Dushka Nikki and Kati Sark have translated another one of my fics, Along Came Molly, into Russian.  Can I just say how much I love these guys and appreciate all their hard work?  Thank you!  :D

Part 1 starts here.

The lovely Dushka Niki has translated two of my fics, Red Right Hand and Still I Look to Find a Reason, into Russian on Kati Sark's blog.  Thank you both, and thank you to anyone who's read and commented on either piece!

The translations:

Red Right Hand

Still I Look to Find a Reason

Because I'm a dork and I always have a song in my head for everything, this is the soundtrack to Longer Than the Road That Stretches Out Ahead

So do the italics on AO3 look strange to anyone else recently?  Like, the spacing is off and some letters look like they're on top of each other and others are too far apart?  I use the default skin, but it happens with all the others that use whatever sans serif font they use (Arial? I don't know my fonts very well).  It doesn't happen with a skin with a serif font.  It's not my browser (Firefox updated days before this happened and I never changed font sizes or anything).

I emailed the support team last night and they were having trouble reproducing the effect.  It's most noticeable in full sentences of italicized text.  I would put up screenshots (which I sent to the support team), but I'm not comfortable doing that with someone else's work (and my own doesn't have full sentences of italics).

Anyone else see this at all?  Or is something on my end fucked?

ETA: They're working on it.  The 'Chained Melody' skin uses a different font and doesn't have this problem.
