I have had a big month or so which has prevented me from fangirling.

I love my flist (you guys) and fandom (generally) and all it/you choose to be and I'm sorry I've been so absent.

I have, honestly, been doing some inter-city driving lately, and hence some heavy-duty stewing about Tangled Up In Blue Chapters 3/4, and I think I've made a decision that might actually make writing it much easier. I hope it will all be worth it for you all in the end.

I have had to re-type that last sentence six times to get rid of the typos.

I have drunk a bottle of wine. Full disclosure.

I have joined AO3 (also as im_ridiculous) and have given myself stupid and ridiculous self-esteem issues because now I can actually SEE the number of people who click versus the number of people who kudos/comment... and it's reminding me why LJ is my fandom home, because my people are here. And ignorance of webclicks. And also that writing stuff for public consumption is scary, no matter whether you're using your real name or not.

I have watched the latest Community episode (Herstory of Dance)....

And tonight, my Jeff/Britta shipper heart is full and happy and full of hope and ignoring the Troy!elephant and the out-of-character-but-awesome-and-why-haven't-they-been-doing-this-all-along?-!Pierce and just basking in my headcanon.

And...

And I confessed to the Disappointing BFF Of BSG-Adama/Roslin-shipper Fame that I'm writing Clintasha fanfic and publishing it on the internet. Because when I said I'd been doing 'some writing for fun' she asked outright if I was writing BSG fanfic and I (truthfully) said no, but while I'm not a BAD liar, I'm not THAT good either, and I couldn't help it. ... On the upside, after her insistent urging (demanding) I sent her the Tangled Up In Blue prologue and, inexplicably, she thought it was good and wants to read more, and I TOLD YOU GUYZ she was a misguided fangirl.

I love you all to bits, and my RL conversation about fandom has reminded me just how grateful I am to have found you all.

I am embarking on a long weekend and it is BLISS.

ALL the hugs, lovely ones.

Oh and also? Community very up and down this season. And when it's down it's down. BUT. When it's up, it's very up. Probably worth cannonballing on dvd or whatever so you don't have to wait a week for redemption after a poor outing!
