I think I checked tumblr about every half an hour today, just to see people flapping their arms and making noises. Metaphorical noises.

(If you weren't aware of this, the cause was this twitter post. Don't go to the #grapes tag on tumblr if you don't want to be very confused.)

This feels suspiciously like the winter of 2007/2008. You know, when a certain (terriwonderful)* movie was being filmed. I liked that winter. I knocked up my wife that winter. I passed my first comprehensive exam that winter.

I became Amal that winter, actually. Though she took six months to park herself on teh intarwebs.

Anyway, it's a good feeling. Though I am, in fandom terms, something approaching middle-aged (if not an old lady). Probably my position right now is best expressed through this cartoon by my favorite fanartist, [tumblr.com profile] shockingblankets.

IN CONCLUSION, I have not had the emotional energy to play much at [livejournal.com profile] f_march_madness, but if you haven't already voted I would like to STRONGLY suggest you vote for the amazing and wonderful Molly Hooper, who suffered the key indignity of having her fucking name misspelled in the poll. Molly is great. You should vote for her. I'm sure whoever she's up against is nice, but Molly Hooper wears underwear with little skulls in bows and pink kitten sweaters and cuts up dead people for a living. She's like Dana Scully with no seriousness at all. She's loyal and smart and strong and she deserves all of our votes, because she's the best. The end.

* I type the first half of the word "terriwonderful." Leigh is leaning over my shoulder. "Terrible," she says. "No," I say, "look." She reads what I wrote. "Terrible," she says. "SHUT UP I LIKED IT," I say. "You're one of very few people," she says.

My [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts gifts have started to arrive! I am absurdly excited, and also embarrassed, because I ended up having to default. (Though I posted one story to the "extras" collection, which you'll all get to read later this week.)


I got two goodies today:ETA: one of them disappeared off the AO3? Maybe it shouldn't have been revealed today or something, IDK. Anyway, I'm deleting the info about it until it gets properly revealed or whatevs.

Welcome to the golden age of speed with grace is part one OF A SERIES! A WHOLE SERIES! set during The Year That Never Was, with CJ and Sam meeting Martha Jones as she travels the world. I am literally giddy to see where this is going to end up. EEEEEEEP.

And the lovely thing about [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts is that I'm going to be getting stories tomorrow and Monday, too! I'll repost with links to them everyday, because I'm just that excited.

Thank you, anon writer! I am breathless with anticipation!
