Happy New Year, y'all.

First, authors are revealed so I can claim these from holiday exchanges:

1.
The Tale of the Forgotten, MCU, Angels&Demons AU, PG, mild Loki/Sif. As the Apocalypse begins, Sif is glad to start the war against Hell. But a mysterious stranger opens her eyes to the truth of the war

2.
another tomorrow, Tomorrowland, PG, Casey finds something to bring back the one they lost.

3. Thinking too much, Jeremiah, Jeremiah/Markus, Mature. Jeremiah thinks Markus should celebrate their victory.

The rest of 2016  (stealing the AO3 formatting, hopefully it doesn't get too screwed up and I
 have to do it manually)

For my Mischief and Mistletoe exchange, I received a super sweet look at some possible pre-canon times and suggestion of a different happy fate:

sharing secrets, teen, Loki/Sif.

(and if you can guess which Mischief and Mistletoe fic I wrote, I’ll write you a drabble)

For Yuletide I was especially #blessed, because I got THREE: and there’s still a Madness fic in there, too, which I’ll edit to add when it opens.

1. The Best-Laid Plans of Jedi and Rebels, Star Wars: Rebels, Kanera, pre-canon. Kanan gets trapped and frozen, and there’s some Huddling for Warmth and canoodling.

2. Life Continues, Star Wars: Rebels, Kanera, future fic. For the opposite end of Happy Fun Times. and this one has a bonus reference for the Best Holiday Special of All Time.

3. Katanóisi, DCEU/BvS, Bruce tries to figure Diana out in his own emotionally constipated way, but just enough Bruce/Diana for my little shipper heart. :)

4. Future Yuletide Madness addition ... I don’t know! What it is! SO EXCITEDD!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays/Winter/New Year to Everybody!

Yuletide assignments came super awesomely quick, with the new code! I got the one where I actually went back and added an offer after I saw a cool letter, so I'm happy about that  (one year I did that, and got someone else's request that had no letter, so it was a total surprise!). Should be a fun canon review, and the letter was full of lovely prompts, so I can choose one of those.

I also have already written a draft of a treat for a different letter - one I didn't offer. Could have, but I thought I'd rather keep it spontaneous. I always feel like the treats don't have to be as 'perfect' - which often makes me feel like the assigned one ends up feeling a bit stiff.

Of course, first, I need to work on my Marvel Bang. I now have a posting date, so I really need to get it going and at least finish the draft. For a story that's supposed to be shorter and less complicated than my usual, it's definitely a struggle.

And finish Hurricane. I keep rewriting the last chapter/epilogue, trying to make it all gel and be awesome.

last weekend we went to Minecon (the Minecraft convention). It was really more for the kiddo than for me- as I don't play and know basically nothing. But it was interesting to observe from a non-fan perspective - first, that YouTube players/vidders are really the stars of the show. Second, the opening and closing ceremonies were pretty dull and sort of amateurishly produced. The mojang brand director seems nice, but really, she's not an entertainer and that's what they needed and not to drag out stuff we already know and/or don't care about. At least Sat night's show was better with TJ Miller (Silicon Valley, Weasel in Deadpool, etc) hosting and Fitz and the Tantrums performed, too. (aside, Hand Clap is a much better song without the autotune, I don't know why they did that)

Anyway it was interesting how the game (and con)'s very divided between the kids who play and watch the videos, and the adults who play but also mod and program. So the seminars were mostly for the second group, while the kids basically hung out on the floor and in the game area or went to the YouTubers panels. there were a couple of presentations/discussions that more knowledgeable kids got smoething out of, but overall, I feel like they needed a bit more kid-friendly track.

welp, it was my first con where I basically knew nothing and had nothing in particular to see, so that was different. I was kind of hoping to get some writing done while I was bored, but not so much.

Last week we went to NYC for a short vacation. We stayed just off Times Square, saw the main sights - well, mostly we saw big buildings because that's the boy's interest. So I went to the top of both the One World Trade center and the Empire State Building. Spent more money at the Disney store on Times Square getting dumb t-shirts, and a Black WIdow POTATO HEAD, because I collect Black Widow toys and that's the most dumb, amazing Black Widow thing I've ever seen. like, there is no where else to go after you get a Potato Head, right?   (ah, remember when Darth Tater was the first combo potato head? How far we've come). There was also a Hawkeye one which I didn't get because it was hideous, but kinda warms the Clintasha part of my heart that they came out at the same time.

Anyway, so New York. Not counting changing planes, I've never actually been there before, and neither had the kiddo, so that was fun. I don't think he's in a hurry to go back, so I suspect the NYC schools aren't going to be on his college list, but that's okay. We met an old friend of my husband's, who now lives in CT (he was one of our groomsmen at the wedding), and had dinner with him, his wife, and their daughter who's a clerk for the Circuit Court of Appeals there, which you may not know about law, but that is pretty impressive. she's going to have pretty much her choice of jobs afterward.

School starts for the boy next week. We got the word that he's going to be taking what's practically his own math class- he's a seventh grader, but they're designing a class for him and one other (girl) to use the curriculum of the eighth grade algebra class, and then just fill in what they don't already have, since they're both advanced. Part of this is, we know, because two of kiddo's close friends (also math brains) left our school to go elsewhere, so I suspect the school realized it might be getting a reputation of not being able or willing to offer more challenge to kids who need it. So I'm glad about this change, since I think he'll do well in it. And well, this is the world we live in, being a bit advanced now will look good on his high school applications or getting into the science magnet high school. 

So that's the news for now! ;)

It's been pretty hot here, luckily not Super hot where I am, but hot. Worst part yesterday was the wildfire smoke was blowing straight at us, so there was a plume right across the LA basin. Made for some cool visuals though, since the sun was glowing scarlet through the smoke and everything was orange-tinted and shadowless. Luckily the wind shifted today, so it's not as heavy (at least for us, I'm sure that just means it's terrible somewhere else).

Today we finally put up curtains. We've only been living here since February. We have horizontal blinds but they're the sucky kind that dont' really go to the edge or close so they let in a lot of light, especially in the early morning. so, darkening curtains, yay!

then tonight we went to the USA vs China men's basketball game. It's a practice/tuneup match for Rio. Great thing about international basketball is the quarters are only 10 minutes, so it's a very quick game. We had unexpectedly great seats not far off the floor at one end (we thought we'd be farther up, but we were only twelve rows up from the floor). I also clocked the woman in front of me by accident when they were throwing Team USA t-shirts during the timeout breaks, oops. But it was a fun game amd it was good to go as a family.

And last week was my anniversary, so we went out to a nice dinner, just the Mr and I, and the food was excellent. they lit a little sparkler firework bringing our dessert, so that was unexpected!

Tomorrow's my wedding anniversary (18 years! OMG). being on a monday, we're not going to do anything for it until we go out to dinner Thursday nite, but I'm looking forward to the night out.

Kiddo has persuaded me to partner with him to do Pokemon Go. Mostly because he needs to use my phone, but we'll do this together for however long he's interested in summer. I know basically nothing about pokemon - never played the game or watched the cartoon and even the kid wasn't into it before, so I figure i'll mostly follow along on this. If nothing else it'll help me get him outside.

In August we're going to New York City for a few days, for vacation, since none of us have been more recently than twenty years ago, it should be fun. We'll find a show - is Lion King still playing, something kid appropriate anyway. We'll see the big buildings because kiddo is All About Architecture (no, really, his Number One Destination in London was the Shard Tower). MoMA because the spouse is into modern art, and whatever else we feel like.

yeah, I'm so boring these days, I feel like I have nothing to write about. Even when I actually DO something, or I haz thoughts, I don't bother to write them down anymore.

I'm going to start with something at least!

- we went to see Finding Dory yesterday. I got a bit choked up when it hits the parenting cord pretty hard, but otherwise, the story's pretty much exactly what you expect it to be. but it's cute.

- we saw the Fourth fireworks locally, it was nice. Not a ginormous show, but well-done.

- my computer died on me on tuesday. it abruptly, decided that it was no longer gonig to let power come in, so it just choked and died. Luckily I'd done a fairly recent backup, but geek squad was able to transfer all my files. even, the, um, copy of Winter Soldier I'd forgotten I'd downloaded. ahem. Now to rebuild all my programs. And remember my passwords. ugh

- so after the news that the laptop was unrecoverable (or might have been, but not for what it was worth certainly), I got a new one today. Samsung - and in theory it should share files with my Galaxy phone so I'll have to figure out how to set that up. It's got a touch screen, which is new and shiny - it's  computer! It's a tablet! -  but I guess DVD drives are now old-school. Might have to get one, I'm not sure yet. I have a lot of CD/DVDs still, so probably.

- writing-wise, I'm still trying to get Comes the Hurricane and The Last Contract finished up, so I can start doing the real work on my Marvel Bang. This whole writing a chapter and posting it business is just awful. How do people do this? Granted, I tend to rewrite as I post anyway, but at least I have a first draft finished before I post. This? WINGING IT IS SO NERVE-WRACKING.  What if I do it wrong? What if I forget a character or some other dumb thing?  Also, I feel so badly for readers  who have to wait while I try to think all this through in more detail. (and then I look at other WIPs and they're like, months, between chapters, so I'm still ahead fo them, but still), I feel like it's just sloooooow.  But at least they're both in the homestretch now.  I think I said that before, but it's even more true now.

- meanwhile I'm watching the Hiddleston fandom meltdown because of the whole Taylor-Tom thing, which is hilarious. I think they're cute, but it's funny how the mainstream media is like "who the fuck is that with Taylor? why is she being all kissy-face with this nobody?" and then the Hiddles fandom ranges from "awww" to "wtf why her?" to "bitch get away". But all the "they must be faking it!!" is so silly - they were holding hands in St. Peter's. I mean, okay, there's publicity stunts but living a lie to that extent seems a bit... overkill.

let's see, round up:

i wrote one fic for the May the Fourth Star wars exchange - Survivors , a post-RotJ/pre-TFA canon divergence of Padme defending a very little Ben (here, Quin, because Qui-Gon lived and Obi--Wan died.)

Have been continuing Last Contract and Comes the Hurricane chapters. It's definitely not as easy to do them as true wips. On one hand there is a nice push to keep producing, rather than letting it sit or jumping to something shiny (which I am prone to do), but otoh I don't have the time to really make sure that certain things that happen aren't going to dump me into some wall down the road that I just don't see yet, or go back and fix anything major. It's a bit more seat of the pants than I really like (and switching between the two is harder than you'd think even though they're not that much alike). but at least both are winding up now.

signed up for Marvel Bang, which will likely be the next Ice Demon story, wherein Loki and Steve try to deal with being on modern earth. it'll be set between First Avenger/Thor and the events of Avengers, so it won't be as epic. Mostly so they can both see Bucky and Peggy again. :(

Today I joined in an online roundtable for the mobile game Avengers Academy (omg me on a webcam, I has a worry) which I've kind of backed into the fandom of. That was fun to be part of a fannish thing more directly again. Made me realize how long I've been basically a passive consumer on tumblr and a pretty passive producer of fic. Still fandom, obviously, but only somewhat interactive.

heh, and now it's bed time so if I don't post now, I probably won't. so hopeflly more later!

Last week w e went to Lake Tahoe for spring break and we got super lucky, since it snowed on MOnday when we arrrived so it was beautiful. We went tubing and then the kiddo took some snowboard lessons in the mornings for two days and seemed to have some fun, as the weather warmed and the snow  turned icy/slushy, so we probably couldn't have done too much more. But the lake was beautiful, and I'm glad we went. I'd never been before. lsppeaking of luck, humorously, hubster and I are neither gamblers, so despite coming in/departing Reno in Nevada, and our hotel being on the Nevada side (and therefore having its own casino), I didn't drop one nickel in a slot machine the entire time. ah well. it's just not a thing for me.

One of the more interesting things, to me anyway, was they had a display in the Reno airport of the flags of the nations that participated in the 1960 Winter Olympics held in Squaw Valley (which on the west side of the lake, and Reno airport was renovated at the time for the olympics). It was funny becuase the kiddo could identify many of the flags, but of course had never seen a USSR flag before, even though he knows the Soviet Union once existed. anyway, it was kind of a blast from the past to see that display because even though I wasn't born yet to see Squaw Valley, I certainly remember Olympics with Soviet and East German flags.

then, tonight, was the Cotillion Ball. The boy has been going to a dance/social thing once a month since September and so tonight was the night htey show off for their parents. and stiffer dancers you have NEVER seen in your life, lol. there was one boy (not mine) who couldnt' put his hand on the girl's hip/waist, so he held it out to his side, kinda flapping around, it was hilariously awkward. Mine at least managed to touch his partner, but I'm not sure he looked at her the whole time, and his face looked like he was on the lookout for his spy target (or just counting steps, more likely!)  BUT the best part was that they did a mom/son waltz so I actually did a proper dance with the kiddo.  awwwwwwww. (I may never dance with him again until, maybe, his wedding, really, when you think about it. :(((( )  So it was special and I'm just kinda gonna bask iin it for awhile.  (he also had his Middle School Spring Fling afterward, at his school, so one more formal dance early and then a later one at school which was with more of his friends and far more racous reportedly)

and my tag for the kiddo is now totally wrong, because he's now taller than I am!  and he's only twelve.*cries*
