Alex is quite smart but he missed a lot of school, being in jail and all. He wants Hank to tutor him, but he can't just come out and SAY it because that would not be cool

~575 words

Electron Theory

Hank clenches his jaw and rubs a hand over his face. It still feels like someone else’s skin, someone else’s hand. )

Twelve-ish hours left on-call. And yes, I do count them down. Yesterday was busy. Today was quiet. So far. I've found that every single time I start a specific project, whether it's taking Henry for a run or walk, cleaning something, calling parents, or cooking, someone calls with an emergency. If I do absolutely nothing, no one bothers me. Go figure.

- Patriots v. Giants tonight. EEE!! The only two teams I follow. Am alternately yelling at/cheering for both of them. So far, it's an awesome game. Down to the wire. I ♥ Brady. But I also ♥ Eli Manning.

- In my time of doing nothing, I did manage to catch up on Once Upon a Time as well as Grimm. I'm still a little 'meh' about both. I think I'll keep up with them when I have free time, but not make time to watch, if that makes sense.

- I miss my summer shows already.

- Limited Release was finished! Speaking of summer shows, this is the bestest XMFC/White Collar crossover EVAR! Might've stayed up ungodly late last night reading.

- Dreams have been no less odd but at least less anxiety-ridden the last couple of nights.

It's been a week.

  • I got out on-time today, but am about to be called back in to euthanize and decapitate a stray dog that bit some people for rabies testing (yes, you did read that right. Is it any wonder horror movies make no impression?)


  • Had a bunch of surgeries. Tapped the pericardium (sack that encloses the heart) on a dog I've been treating for a while. This procedure always makes me hold my breath but feel really accomplished when it's a) over and b) the dog improves.


  • Got totally hoodwinked by a guy on Match.com--which only compounds bad-luck in dating recently. I'm about to get to the point of not bothering anymore. Unless something (someone) good happens soon.


  • Going to visit my aunts in western MA this weekend. I'd like to end up living/working in the Berkshires, so this is a feel-it-out trip I'm looking forward to. I hope I make the plane tomorrow; since my colleague is going to be at a hearing most of the afternoon, I'll be covering appointments, so it's going to be close.


  • Got a lot written on my Alex/Hank epic. I left it alone for a while and enjoyed re-reading it. That's a good sign, right?


Hope you all (that's younz in Pittsburghese) are having a good one!

YAY! Three-day weekend is finally here after only twelve days of work. :-D


Okay, so I'd like to be writing. And to talk about stories. Preferably XMFC. I made Indian curry with mushrooms and salmon for dinner. I opened a bottle of wine I'd been saving, and it's just as LOVELY as expected (despite the staining on the cork, that terrified me it would be spoilt).

I'm almost done re-reading Jane Eyre and... dude, there's so much more sexual tension in that novel than I was even aware of in middle school. :-P It's great. I'm thinking I ought to re-read Wuthering Heights...

Simul-reading The Subtle Knife and The Neon Court, and it's a little surrealistic. I love it.

~

Um, here's a snippet of one I've been working on that--the whole doesn't flow at all, but I really like this moment. Flying for the first time )

~

Okay. That's what I got. Gonna see if Terra Nova is available OnDemand.

Humph

Days since I've had the XMFC blu-ray: 2
Number of times I've re-watched it: 3 (and the commentary. and the deleted scenes-wtf!)
Number of fics currently in progress: 4

Getting to see crossdressing!Eric in bed with Charles: Priceless

The helmet makes whomever's wearing it look like they have a little piggy snub-nose. I think therein lies its secret power. *g*

I've mostly been doing very little this weekend, and it's glorious. Cleaning house. Drying tomatoes and peaches for winter, freezing corn, baking bread, watching mindless TV, reading and writing.

~

Half-marathon in one week. I'm sorta-kinda ready. I think. Not to set a PR or anything, but at least to finish respectably.

It's odd, but after a week/weekend on-call, Monday is the greatest word.

Last weekend was a bit rough (as anyone who caught my Saturday night post can attest). I worked a normal half-day Saturday, back home around two, then pretty much straight through from four pm to four am. I also killed (euthanized) the vast majority of my patients. That, after a busy Friday night, left me on my last nerve. Luckily, I only had one major call on Sunday night. Luckily it was a horse (I have infinite patience for horses relative to other animals). Then after work this evening, I was off!

Oh. Except for when my neighbor brought me a dying kitten to take care of, after her son motored over it in his PowerWheels car. I kid you not.

This is actually my life. *facepalm*

(I took the kitten to euthanize. Because I really am doctor death. I told her to tell her son we tried CPR to revive it. I am a lying liar.)

~

I spoke to my boss last week about what her plans were for my colleague's maternity leave. Um. The plan was to have me and her husband split on-call duty 50/50 for six weeks. I'll be paid more for the time, but I'm not sure money is worth the basket case I know I'll be (we currently split emergency duty three ways, and that seems like too much many days. See: last Saturday for example).

I suggested as much to her. I guess we'll see what happens...

~

I started dating someon new. I think I really like him, you guys!

That hasn't happened in, no joke, like ten years.

I guess, worst case scenario, at least I know I still have a heart? But best case scenario, I also get to have some fun. :)

~

I think that's all. I really want to finish one of the open stories on my desktop. The Charles/Erik one is proceeding in a slow, linear fashion. I think it's funny how each story develops so differently because the Hank/Alex one is written beginning to end, but each time I go through it I add new layers of characters and voice and... I don't know, but I'm rather enjoying the (also slow) process.

Apparently we have two choices come 2012:

1a. Elect a Republican and forward the Conservative Whackjob Agenda(tm)

corollary to 1a, 1b. Re-elect Presidnt Obama and forward the Conservative Whackjob Agenda (with righteous indignation under the guise of a right-shift compromise.)

2. Or move to Canada.

In other news, I have a question regarding XMFC fic:

Let me preface this by explaining that I waste a whole lot of writing time checking the date of common-use slang, technology, etc. and that's without even *trying* to make it period-specific. That's just knowing that the walkman wasn't released until the 1970's

[Poll #1766227]

And, finally, a rec:

Old Metal (Blood, Memory, and Rubber Ducks) by [livejournal.com profile] pprfaith

It's Charles/Erik-Lensherr x Erik Northman (True Blood). It's labelled as crack, but it's the kind of crack that makes my blood run cold, it's such a good story in its own right. The two Eriks are so well blended into one character, I didn't even know whose face to imagine while I was reading. Charles was flawless Charles.

The statement was bland, but Erik couldn’t quite help the shiver that passed down his back. Beautiful, skilled, useful and his. Greed, yes. It had always been his favorite of the Christians’ deadly sins, so very inherent in a vampire’s nature. Taking was what they did and Erik wanted this telepath.


Go! Encourage MORE of this!

:D :D :D

A Hundred Visions and Revisions by [livejournal.com profile] kaydeefalls

Just read this one last night. It's a lovely, plotty, recruitment-road trip fic. Charles/Erik by the end. She handles the characters and relationship with deft hands, placing them well on the timeline. Other awesome mutants and non-mutants. Interdepartmental, government-agency bickering. It's all there, really.
