(title from "the thargomindah road" - an old Australian song)
The neck always feels a little fragile the day after a visit to the chiro. And I have a headache that I fear would be probably more than threatening if not for the panadol I took a couple of hours ago.
I'm not sure I can write tonight. An awful lot of things are all churned up, including the oncoming winter, the state of Marvel fandom, my feelings about my health, and a lingering feeling of aloneness in fandom.
Have a link: Eleven million deaths as clickbait
- a commentary on That Thing What's Currently Happening In Marvel.
And a number of fics:oh, there's a show alright but it may not be the one you want“So, after months of trying to keep you lot quiet and under the radar, you’ve managed to completely blow your cover, start a manhunt, and declare yourselves gay for each other in just over fifty hours.”
Sam/Bucky drunk!Vegas!Marriage fic with a side order of Maria/Steve UST that is ridiculously popular considering I dashed it off after an amusing Tumblr post. (Hey, I did say I kind of wanted to write Sam/Bucky, looks like my brain got hijacked with hijinks - and, btw, my fingers just typed 'bijinks' which, um, yeah. Hi, Freud!)Casualties Of WarIt’s better this way. Anything between them could only ever be a casualty of the events and people that need them more.
6K of extremely self-indulgent Maria-Saves-The-Day fic, featuring Valkyrie, all the Avengers, and Maria/Steve. I'm not sure what the first commenter meant; anyone willing to hazard a guess/explain it to me?Every Breaking WaveShe's thirty-five when she realises he's never seen her as an old woman.
Someone prompted me with "Captain Hill + 'mourn'" and this is the result. It's an AU based off 'The Time Traveler's Wife', and extremely angsty, mentions a character death, and features a character coming to terms with her own death. Same series as Lepidopterae
.Return To MeFour days is an eternity between ransom message and rescue.
Someone else prompted me with "Captain Hill + 'come back'" and this is quite possibly even more brutal than Every Breaking Wave
.trying to break the moldThree-quarters of a potential sedoretu, shooting for orbit, burning like fire.
A little Steve/Bucky/Peggy sedoretu
ficlet. WARNING: follows MCU canon, so unfinished/unhappy ending.
I'm presently working on:
* a Maria Hill movie plot that would fit into the MCU
* To The End Of Love (need to switch off my inner editor/critic and just write this on out; it's kind of awful)
* the next chapter in the Steve/Maria Neighbors AU, after they went to Italian with her grandparents and kissed
* the next chapter in Sam/Bucky drunk!Vegas!Marriage.
* and to top it all off, someone actually went and asked for "Captain Hill + loss", which involves "one character dying while in the arms of the other". Geeze. This WILL end badly.
So much writing. And BEARS of so little brain.
Plus two quilts to prep for the Sydney Quilt Show which is in LESS THAN A MONTH (what, when did this happen) and which have to be finished, ready to hang, and dropped off in a nearby suburb by the middle of next month. (Oh, geeze, I hope it's the middle of next month.)
