Internet, I am pleased to say that I made it through yet another family Thanksgiving without punching any of my siblings. It was a close call at some points, but I restrained myself by choosing to pour myself another glass of wine rather than engaging. Hooray! I'm growing as a person! Among other things.

It was nice getting to see my nieces and nephews, too (Dad, Cathy, and I Skyped with Sarah and Kathi on Thursday afternoon - UGH THEY'RE SO CUTE). Bella and Gavin are both getting taller, and it's TERRIBLE. Bella's only 9 and already at my shoulder height. :( Look, I really enjoy not being the shortest person in the family with them around, and I'm just not prepared for them to be bigger than me quite yet. Luckily this dapper little gentleman still has some growing to do:

Monsieur Evan )

(Best thing: he likes to play hockey - my brother is a hockey coach - with spatulas, oven mitts, and bottle caps, so he spent most of Thursday doing that in my parents' kitchen. I may have died from cute a couple times.)

Anyway, in non-family news, the Teen Wolf Holidays 2013 fic collection went live today! Check it out here. There are 60 stories all told, which is AWESOME. :D

So this is a thing I'm doing in 2012:

GetYourWordsOut: Back for a 4th Year!
Pledges & Requirements |

I've written more words (and with more frequency) in 2011 than I have since college, and I very much feel like I need to keep up the momentum. Hopefully this will be enough incentive/encouragement to work with? :D? Anyway, I pledged 150k words, which [ profile] theemdash tells me is a little over 400 words a day. Not too bad! And considering the fact that I will be writing 2 smaller Big Bangs early in the year, I think I'll be okay. We'll see.

Office Christmas is today! We have some new additions to Team Jerk, in that [ profile] pocky_slash got me the Cap plushie, and I got her the Hulk plushie. Office Avengers will have plenty of adventures in the future, I'm sure (at least once Tony and Steve get back from their honeymoon on my shelf). ALSO ALSO ALSO. IN CASE THERE WAS ANY DOUBT THAT I HAVE THE BEST BOSS. Doug got me the Stark logo mug that Tony has in the Iron Man movies! IT IS THE GREATEST. I actually gave him a hug, that is how excited I am by this thing. :DDD

Uh, yeah. \o/

I doubt I'll be around much over the next few days, so if you're trying to reach me, I suggest Twitter or email (or texts, if you have my number). Mostly I'll be spending time with my family, Tristan and Ashley, and Loretta and Jay, plus attempting to work on the BBMUs in whatever free time I can dredge up (rough drafts are due on the 10th omg), but I'm too codependent on the internet to be far from it for very long.

Happy holidays, friends! Stay safe! <333

In which this fandom is a little bit like quicksand. )

I am going to make an effort to be less of a fuck-up over the next few days. These are the things I must accomplish:

-finish beta reading this Inception fic (halfway done, I can totally do this)
-finish my scenes in the XMBB
-decide which prompt I'm going to use for the Charles/Erik holiday exchange
-figure out how to make my Cap/Iron Man Secret Santa fic work (oh maaaaaaan all the excites)
-finish plotting my BBMU story and maybe write the first section (?)

In addition to this, I need to do something to keep me sane during the holiday season so I don't accidentally strangle any of the overbearingly cheerful baristas bopping around to fucking Christmas music (I came so close yesterday). I'm thinking of either making a themed mix a week, or posting a random song a day to tumblr. Maybe both. Thoughts on this, friends?
