Ok, so this is not what I expected to write about this morning. But trying to organize and channel my thoughts these days is about as effective as herding cats, so. This is what my brain did. Haaaaaa.
Ok. So. Not surprisingly, and, uh, as I’ve alluded, things are Not Fine in the Land of Swaps. I’m going to word doodle about that in time, but for now, I’m in desperate need of some positive thoughts. So I’m going to attempt a daily list of Things That Are Good.
That list might be rather pathetic at first. Please bear with me.
Thank you all. SO. MUCH. For the welcome back. For the love. For the good thoughts. For the worry. You have no idea how much I missed EVERYONE. Being cut off from my friends, my support network, when I need them most, ended up doing a lot more harm than good. Just being back here is such a huge relief.
I have a long road ahead of me. Most of it won’t be pleasant. I’ll probably be doing a fair amount of generic, therapeutic word spew here. If you don’t want to get bogged down in all of that, please blacklist “write your way out,” because that’s the tag I’ll use. I’ll put everything under a cut, please don’t feel obligated to read or reply. I’m not trolling for sympathy - just trying to…write my way out.
Though I won’t turn down a hug if anyone offers. ;)
HEY HAVE SOME HOBBIT/PIPPIN REPLIES.
Whenever you’re going through a bad day just remember, your track record for getting through bad days, so far, is 100%; and that’s pretty damn good.
Can we talk about how the Five Armies trailer uses PIPPIN’S SONG from Return of the King?
CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS, PLEASE?
[Caption: I want to say how much I value the writing of Swaps55.
Her Matthew Shepard & Liara are so beautiful together, the heart & soul she puts into their story, is astounding. Her short story “The Lifecycle of Butterflies” is a brief masterpiece, and as for her novel “Exordium” (the full telling of Shepards’ journey through ME1)…the sheer brilliance & beauty of it makes me want to cry. She’s an amazing writer and a wonderful person. This one’s for you, Swaps.]
[bursts into tears]
Guys. You have no idea what this means to me right now. I have cried so hard, and so much the past week. And I’m nowhere near done.
Thank all of you for everything. And I mean everything. I need all of you very much right now. sinvraal, you are the kind of friend everyone needs to have. I owe you SO MUCH.
Whoever submitted this, I’m giving you ALL OF THE HUGS RIGHT NOW. Hugging you so tight you’re probably in pain.
whelp. after that little mental journey on my bus ride home, guess I’m writing some OT3 smut for KPW too.
…I always wonder, when I see two people have favorited the same of my stories within seconds of each other, if they know each other.
No I DON’T want to have a phone meeting where you tell me the three sentences I asked you for while I type them out, I want YOU to type them in a reply to the fucking email I sent.
I started typing Mandalorian into a search engine and it kept trying to correct it to Mandalay Bay so now I’m envisioning a resort full of Mandalorians. Free drinks for everyone in full armor!
OR AM I?
Honestly, only if the story calls for it. I’m not big on angst for angst’s sake or deaths just to kick them in the kidneys when they’re already down....
