☆ Didn't manage to get my glasses this weekend. Turns out that the office was closed, even though they're usually open on Saturdays... grumble, grumble. Looks like I'm going to have to leave work early on some day this week in order to go pick them up. What a pain in the ass. I just want my glasses, man. :(

☆ British Columbia is dealing with kind of a craptastic wildfire situation right now, mainly in the Cariboo region*. The Red Cross is taking donations*; I'm not sure which other organizations are involved. The situation isn't comparable to what happened in my city last year - 8k evacuees here, vs 80k last year - but it still really sucks. Seeing this stuff on the news is... hard.

☆ YiH: So, it looks like we're getting an update this upcoming Friday*. I'm assuming it will be the start of actual regular updates again, considering Karo has the rest of Ch05 done, but we'll see. I'm really, really looking forward to it, at the very least. When I was checking a detail today, I ended up just re-reading a huge chunk of it, and now it's so hard to wait. xD ...Speaking of which, while I was sifting through my WIP pages, I came across that fic I started a while back, and to my astonishment it doesn't suck terribly badly. So, I ended up finishing the draft of it. Turned out very differently than what I initially wanted, but that's fine. (It was initially going to be much longer, for one thing.) Wonder if I can get it finished before the update? We'll see.

☆ I finished that long SSSS OC fic I was working on! HOORAY! ...It is 9 pages. I do not want to type it up and edit it. At all.

Don't ask me how my rare slash exchange fic is going. >.o

The news story of British Columbia broke my heart. Thank you for those links.

I'm really excited for YiH! I wonder if we'll be getting a bulk update to celebrate the end of hiatus or it'll be just one page, but either way I'm not complaining. :) I was requesting so much stuff for this for GenEx this morning and getting super excited (but also super tongue tied because we simply don't have much to go on but I want all the Siiri and Sampsa stuff and--) I should also reread the comic in preparation for Friday!

And congrats on the writing success. What seems to be the trouble with RMS? (you are always free to vent privately!)

Indeed! :) I'm finding the Twitter and Tumblr exchanges format a little better, at least with the sign up part. You just declare what you want on your wishlist and that's it. No stressing out in giving prompts. And I like that since I'm all "I want Thing! That's it, that's your prompt!" (And I feel my prompts suck anyway. XD I mean, giving DNWs and general likes wouldn't hurt for these exchanges, but I guess this crowd knows not to overstep certain boundaries.)

Oooo, treat! :D Well, my giftbox is always open! :D (and I requested them again for RMS and for Rare Pair. And if I decide on Yuletide this year, that too! XD I can't wait to see it! Let me know when you're done! :D )

Ah, okay! :) I know the feeling! I think taking a break might help you. Looks like you're just run out of steam for the pairing and need to reenergize, so working on other things in the meantime should help. :)

Yep, Voltron! :) Once you tiptoe past the minefield of antis, there's a whole lovely utopia full of fluff and crack and femslash and people who will deliver with the most indulgent whump and...yeah. XD

Oh, I see! :D And OMG, somehow I completely missed the fics! I'll read them tomorrow for sure! :D THANK YOU! <3

(Yes I should try to write them. XD There's got to be space somewhere in my schedule! XD I do have one idea, but it's not with them as the focus. It covers a whole bunch of pairings where they are all soulmates, and it's about how in each lifetime they find each other again.)

Oh, dear. I agree, that's really stupid. There is WAY more to romance that just kissing. :\ You know, just thinking back to the NoFM fic you wrote me, if there was a kiss between Reynir and Lalli I don't remember it (not that it's anything against you!) What I'm still thinking about now was how intensely I felt like I was in their home. That really stayed with me, being part of their lives and just amazed at how they fell into this easy rhythm, these two very different people being able to coordinate their very different lives and needs near perfectly. I was so happy and drunk on that all day. And still am, I guess! XD And in your fic for me last year for Rare Pair, when Reynir was writing that letter about seeing someone on the streets and thinking they were Lalli, it hit me so hard I actually began to cry. That's shippy. :') I love it!

If your recip thinks what you write is smarm then...they're missing out.

Hopefully you don't mind me dropping into the conversation, but low-key romance is the best romance! ...Though I can understand why you feel pressured; I've been seeing those wanks and worrying a little about it too.

Who was it that said that if you had to write a kiss to show two people are in love, you're not writing a convincing romance?

The wildfire sounds horrible, and even more so after what you experienced last year :(. I can imagine that seeing it on the news would bring back memories. Sending you many warm thoughts from here.

Duh, shops and offices with inconvenient opening hours... Grrr. Good luck getting your glasses soon! I hope you'll be very happy with them!

Good luck and success on your glass hunt!

Wildfires are awful. -.- Russia has a few every year, but they're usually in areas where no one lives, so the only end result is south Finland occasionally being wrapped in weird, unsettling smog.

I think you can be understandably wary about wildfires, dude.

*hugs back*
