The Contents Post
Because it's become apparent that I am going to need one. For years this journal was full of fic featuring a single pairing in a single fandom because I'm boring like that, so it was easy enough to navigate by the memories, but now I have *two* three (!) pairings in *two* three fandoms! omg the confusion!

This isn't a complete list because archiving all that FMA stuff will probably take as long as writing it did. If you vaguely remember something I wrote but you don't know what it is because it's all so damn samey, comment and I'll try to remember it (I totally found fic I'd forgotten I'd ever written while doing this; hey, I *did* put Roy in one of those uniforms!) <3

So, the fic contents, by fandom:

FMA, Roy/EdCollapse )

Glee!fic, Kurt/BlaineCollapse )

Musketeers (2014)Collapse )

Just because I haven't said a thing in almost two months and I'm still really sorry comments aren't getting replied to . . .

The arm thing remains as it ever is, but now the muscles in my legs have gone heavy and weak and wobbly as well, to the extent that I really struggle with staircases soemtimes, and everything's got a lot more serious quite quickly; blood tests clean, MRI booked, we need to work out what this is before it can get any worse. A pretty likely culprit is MS, but it could be any number of things, so I really don't know what I'm in for right now.

So: I'm sorry I'm not getting back to you, but I still hope to, at some point. And that stupid-long fanfic I started about dealing with chronic illness and disability is looking really bloody prescient at this point, huh?

I've been trying to push through all of this illness and diagnosis as just a thing to be dealt with and largely ignored, but I think probably not isolating myself is the better option. I can't type much still, obviously, but I hope it's better to talk about it. Having a diagnosis will be one thing; being stuck in the between-place, where there's something wrong with you but it has no name and given how invisible it is, people get snotty with you at bus stops when you can't move out of their way fast enough, it's a good thing to assert and re-assert your existence even if it's awkward to other people and not yet set in its recogniseable little box. It will be nice to have a flag to hold, I have this, and then people will think that they know how to deal with me and I to some extent may better understand how to deal with myself. For now, I'm just working on the existence thing. I'm here, and my life's quite hard right now, but I'm sticking with it, I'd like to achieve *something* with it.

Bear with me; updates will come *fucking* slow, and replies probably even slower. Until they do, I hope you guys are well, and take care of yourselves, and each other. It's really all quite hard enough for everyone already; might as well be nice <3

The Moth, Musketeers fic, affinityverse (best catalogued in my memories) <3 So I disappeared for ages. Sorry. Comment replies as my arms can take them ^^;

Disclaimer: Bloody hellfire, no, I don't own anything, *no*.

Rating: *squints* R for things suggested.

Warnings and spoilers: The main list's on part one, read sensibly. Sort of spoilers for stuff in S1 but really vaguely and confusedly and I really assume you've already watched that if you're reading this. There's some discussion of some clearly iffy past sexual thing going on here, but those who know what happened aren't talking about it clearly, and those who don't know what happened . . . don't know what happened. It actually will be discussed in more detail in a later piece, right now just an awareness that things are complicated and sometimes people act badly is probably something you already have -_-

Summary: This is not what came before.

Tide Marks, Musketeers fic. Modern(ish, set a few years back) AU set in New Orleans, I'll discuss that under the cut. Aramis/Athos, though Aramis and Porthos do drift into their destined role as besties (I've written Porthos/Aramis before, and the sacred OT3, but Aramis and Athos in a relationship are weirdly perfectly complementary and I do love writing them <3 ).

Disclaimer: Nothing in here is mine, not the characters nor the city nor the trope. And when I say 'characters', if you too are a David Simon obsessive, you'll note a few walk-on parts ^^;

Warnings: While I set out to write this as a fic about how much I hate the fucking 'shovel talk' (it's a disgusting trope, again, I'll discuss that under the cut), what it's actually about is the aftermath of an abusive relationship. So there's a lot of reference to emotional, psychological, financial, physical and sexual abuse in this, and it's a horrible truth of the world that you don't become safe just because you left the bastard. Not just because that's when they're most likely to try to kill you, but because you have to process everything that happened and *deal* with it somehow, and in a world where victims get blamed for not leaving (again: that is when they are most likely to try to kill you), that is a fucking nightmare of a thing to process. This is for much of its length really not a happy place to be, I'm sorry, but, I set it in a city which knows how to do better than just survive for a reason.

Summary: In which Athos falls in love again, and Porthos doesn't know how to respond to that, until he does.

Ole Man Trouble, Musketeers fic, affinityverse (best catalogued in my memories) <3 Hey Rainjoy, are your arms better? No! No they are not in the slightest! I am just too fucking pissed off with it all to give a shit how much it hurts!

Disclaimer: I don't own the characters or the music they listen to, at least, not the copyright to it ^^;
Rating: R

Warnings and spoilers: The main list's on part one, read sensibly. I don't think anything more than good old 'peril' in this part.

Summary: I've lived this way for so many years by now, ole man trouble . . .
