is supposed to make you sleepy, which is awesome because I’ve had sleep issues for my entire life.  I also have ADHD.  So sometimes when I take my Ambien, it combines with my ADHD and gives me this surge of energy to pump out a ficlet or gets the characters in my head buzzing for attention and then I do things like write and the next day it makes just enough sense for me to finagle with it and actually maybe make a story.

This is happening right now.

I started a fic a while back, an AU (of course).  I wrote like 20 pages and lost them, thinking I threw them out in one of my mass cleaning culls.  This afternoon, I found them.  The joy I felt, I cant even describe.  The joy turned to heartache when I realized the beginning of the story was not on my hard drive or my flash drive where I kept all my old fics. 

I held back the tears, straightened myself up, and realized I email everything to myself so I can edit,complete, etc.  So I went to my gmail, knew it had to be there.  I scrolled and opened and closed and repeated and tried not to get too frustrated, and I finally found it.  Emailed from my gmail to my Yahoo in May 2012…and I was actually smart enough to title the email with the name of the story (Providence).  Sometimes being anal is awesome! 

I dont know if I will complete this story, its case fic and has a hell of a triggering subject matter, but just knowing its there, and I could if I wanted, and all is not lost…it just made today even better.

Writing long hand is so damn awesome but I’m hardly at the middle of what could be a lengthy story.  Now I remember why I reluctantly gave up the gel pen for the keyboard.  Still, its been amazing kind of going back in time…older story, older method.  I’ll surely write a few more scenes that way before getting off the nostalgia train.

New Fic (yes, two in one day)



I promise to stop rambling on and on about my fic as soon as I say this.  The Station Agent, my Rossi/Strauss songfic is posted.  I usually dont ask people to read my stuff, and I know songfic can be kinda vilified, but if you’re a fan of this ship I would love to know what you think of the story.  This is one that flowed out of me so quickly I dont know whether to be excited or frightened about that.

Full disclosure #1: I skipped over the song lyrics. Full disclosure #2: I wanted that phone to ring so badly that it made my chest hurt. I became Dave to the point where his hope brought up feelings in me that for my own self preservation I keep buried. And this is why I read your stories, even your songfics.

The song lyrics are amazing, you should check out the song one of these days apart from the story.  Secondly, your comment is exactly the reason why I write.  I know the things inside me are what other people feel too and I need to get it out and then they read it and we can connect with each other on the deepest levels.

Girl Talk is my 500th fic posted on AO3.  The stories keep going and going…

If my math calculations are correct, which is never a guarantee, I’ve written 209 Rossi/Strauss fics since the idea of them first popped into my mind in March 2010.  They are my OTP, they are my love, but have the least amount of fic of my top 3 ships in the fandom (Hotch/Prentiss, Gideon/Prentiss, Rossi/Strauss).  I think that’s just because I started them nearly 2 years after the others.

Reading concrit on a years-old story from a person I no longer communicate with.  Its over here making me teary-eyed how much she loved the writing but also how she wasnt afraid to tell me the best ways to make it better.  I really miss her.
