Story Title: Emergency Contact
Fandom: MCU
Link(s): On AO3
Summary: Natasha, Nick and Tony go on a mission to rescue Bruce after AoU, and are de-aged to adolescence. A story of four genius misfit loners sticking it to The Man and occasionally to each other, settling scores, and finding themselves. The real adventure is the friends they make along the way. And the evil scientists. And the thugs with tasers. And also that shark.

Warnings: teenage sexuality (kinda)
Characters: Natasha Romanoff, Nick Fury, Bruce Banner, Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, James 'Rhodey' Rhodes, Maria Hill, Laura Barton, Steve Rogers, Helen Cho, Sam Wilson, Thor Odinson, Clint Barton
Pairings: Natasha/Bruce, Natasha/Nick, Tony/Bruce, Tony/Nick/Natasha/Bruce

When I Started: My writing partner Thassalia gave me the teenager prompt in Sept 2015, but I couldn't get a handle on it. Then in Aug 2016 she shared the handful of pages she'd started, the scene with Pepper and Rhodey, the scene of Steve looking at the teenaged Nick, Tony, Nat and Bruce--and it clicked, I could see where it could go. I started making a soundtrack, I had it bad.

How I Lost My Shit: Within weeks of sharing the file, real life sidelined Thassalia (she became a parent! Yay!) and I inherited the teenagers.
How I Finished My Shit: These crazy kids wouldn't stop pestering me, but I've got several WIPs fighting for bandwidth.  The looming deadline gave me an excuse to focus on just this one until it was done. Seventy-five pages later, it's been a rough puberty, but I think we all made it out alive.

I was rewatching POI 1x06 (aka Zoe's first episode) when I spontaneously combusted from the adorableness of John Reese.

So Harold at one point asks John, "Assuming that [Zoe's] the victim and not the perpetrator, who would want to take her out?" And John responds with, "Who wouldn't?" Except that he's not talking about potential threats, he's talking about taking her out. Like on a date. With food and flowers.

I CANNOT HANDLE THIS HOW DID I ONLY CATCH IT ON THE REWATCH IT IS TOO CUTE.

From United We Dream, info@unitedwedream.org:
The Dream Act of 2017 has been introduced in the Senate to protect DACA recipients. It has four sponsors: Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY). United We Dream asks for peole to telephone their Attorney General. The number they give is (832) 610-3896.

Their suggested message is "I am calling to ask the Attorney General to come out publicly to defend the DACA program. This program has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth across the country and it must be protected. I expect my attorney general to support the immigrant community and protect DACA."

Just a couple of these things, & it pays for itself. For example, the Fiction River anthology alone [nearly 800 pages!] is 8.00 on Kindle. The Uncollected Anthology Year One [490 pages] is only available as a $24 paperback. Afaik, this is the only e-book edition. The Grayson trilogy is excellent, romance-with-woo-woo fun; the Rusch Diving series has great buzz. The Faerie Summer is a 20-book e-book set.

Throw in the others, & that's a lot at an excellent deal. Squee!

Story Title Never Will I Forget The Deep Shadows, Never Will I Waste The Moon’s Light
Fandom BBC Sherlock
Link Story: AO3 | Art: AO3 / DW / LJ
Summary The Holmes brothers come from a long line of powerful magic practitioners, but they are forced to keep their skills a secret. When Molly accidentally finds out about Sherlock’s powers and doesn’t turn away from him he slowly realizes that this pleases him, but soon enough he gets careless and is put in a position he would rather not be in, especially when others find out that she knows and attempt to use her as a pawn in their own games and machinations.
Warnings Mentions of attempted torture
Characters Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, Molly Hooper, James Moriarty
Pairings None, though hints at possible Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper should there be a sequel
When I Started November 5th, 2015
How I Lost My Shit I kept getting stuck on this story soooo many times, as it was a commission that I had trouble with because of the magic elements (and the fact that Tumblr locked me out of my inbox for a year where the commission details were).
How I Finished My Shit I almost didn't. The past few months have been absolute hell and I literally did not write the last chapter or epilogue until last night, and I just posted the epilogue twenty minutes ago. My life has been full of health complications that almost kept me from finishing but I was bound and determined to finish because of the beautiful art I had been given (seriously, it's stunning) and because this was a commission that deserved to be finished.

The Senate Trumpcare bill is dead!

Four Republican senators have come out against the Senate's ACA replacement bill.

(Of course, McConnell is now moving to repeal with no replacement, so the fight's not over yet. Keep calling!)

But I have to celebrate this moment. If someone had told me in January that we'd get this far, I wouldn't have believed it! With luck, they'll find out that the straight repeal is just as unworkable as they thought it would be in February when they decided against it. And either way, we've made them spend six months on internal backstabbing, badmouthing, and time wasting that they can't get back, and a lot of ill will generated within the Republican caucus that won't be forgiven without a lot of effort.

MCU: The Lost and the Wretched

Story Title: The Lost and the Wretched

Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Link(s): Story on AO3 / Art by MassiveSpaceWren on tumblr

Summary: After his reanimation, Tony has yet to find a reason to continue his existence that isn’t hatred or bitterness. After decades of captivity in Arcadia, Steve doesn’t know if he even has a soul anymore. When the vampires of the Covenant of the Shield organize a mission to rescue Steve, it is a new beginning for both of them.

Warnings: No standard warnings apply, but in this AU, Tony is Frankenstein’s (well, Yinsen’s) monster, as in, literally made of spare body parts, and some related gory imagery appears in the story.

Characters: Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Nick Fury, Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton, Bruce Banner, Thor, Loki

Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark

When I Started: I wrote the first chapter as a fill for the Captain America/Iron Man bingo in January 2016. I already had an outline in mind for a longer story then, but I knew it'd be beyond the scope of the bingo. I estimated it'd be around 50k, and I really wanted to write it…

How I Lost My Shit: …I really wanted to write the whole long story, but there was always something else to do, some challenge to work on, and I had neither the time nor the motivation to finish this. I prodded at it every now and then and made some progress, but not enough. I mentally labeled it the Epic WIP of Despair. At one point, I started posting it as a WIP, which I usually never do, hoping that'd give me the motivation to finally finish it, but that didn't work either, since the reader response was lukewarm at best.

How I Finished My Shit: Since I'd already tried a lot of other things with no luck, I signed up for WIP BB. Deadlines are a great motivator for me, and that was also true this time. Although I worried about schedules a lot, I did, in the end, manage to finish the thing, even though it became even longer than I'd first planned. In fact, at 58k, it's now the longest story I've written in my life! And Wren did a pretty sad franken!Tony art for me! <3 I'm so glad I signed up! :)

omg you guys.
