Just a quick update on my fic progress.
- I've fixed my plan for the rest of Principles, so I feel better about writing the next chapters. I have XVII typed up, and I need to revise it before it can be posted. Tomorrow at the earliest, Monday at the latest. (This is a lot later than I wanted - by a week this time lol - but I really wasn't happy with my original order of events. But now I am. So. Worth the wait again, I hope.)
- I'm working on my paperlegends fic. I have a few thousand words written, and it was hard starting, but I'm going better now. The plan was for a Beastly/Merlin fusion with more magic, but it completely ran away from me. So it's a little like Beastly with the whole curse aspect, but then the magic aspect totally evolved into something like army conscription and rebels and betrayals and so forth. I don't know why my muses are making it so difficult for me, but I'm hanging on for the ride so far. And I still love Merlin/Arthur, even if the series is finished.
- I'm also writing big bang fics for hawaii_bigbang and whitecollar_bb. My Hawaii Five-0 fic is kind of a tropefic and a casefic in one. Steve and Danny go on a gay cruise, "undercover," to catch a ring of suspects. It's really fun to write. My White Collar fic is a Nikita fusion, where Neal is an assassin sent to do a long con on Peter, but of course, he can't kill him in the end, so they work together to bring down Division. It might end up being a OT3, I can't decide. Because I do really love Elizabeth, and I love her and Peter together. I don't know, I'm still working on it.
- Anything else? Um, I know my resolution for the year was to at least make a dent of my unfinished fic folder. There's a lot in there, and I do want to start working on all those various one-shots again. But more on that later, when I actually make some progress on any of them.
And onto the personal tmi portion. I was watching Switched at Birth, and this season, they've been delving into Regina's alcoholism. She slipped and started drinking again, and her behavior became erratic, and I don't know. It was actually kind of triggering for me, I guess, after the last few years with my mom. But just this week, my mom got her 30-day sobriety chip. She's doing really good so far, even though she has a ways to go since she said she wanted to celebrate with a drink (orz). But uh, she's been sober, though I haven't been living with her, so it doesn't have as much as an effect on me as it might have last year. But I am really happy for her, and I hope she keeps up the good, hard work.
Anyway, I just wanted to get that off my chest. Off to do more writing. :D
