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 )

Happy Christmas Eve all - whatever you're up to and whatever you're celebrating, I hope it's a very good day for you =)

I owe a *lot* of comment replies and messages, I'm sorry, my arms have been even more wrecked, my life really has reduced right now to dragging myself through the work I have to and then just huddling down to try to recover from that; haven't written one word in weeks and for me that is *weird*, weird weird weird, hardly even recognise myself. But I needed to haul my useless painful arms up for this, because this is important.

It's Christmas, after a godawful fucking year, and one of the standout most fucking awful parts of it is that the Mediterranean sea has now become a mass grave: five thousand people died trying to cross that sea in 2016 alone. You already know I've been impotently despairing about this for a long time, because last year we worked together to raise money for MSF. Now I have a Christmas wish for the people spending their winter in refugee camps, having fled war and survived the trip to Europe, where now it's cold and bleak and hostile and I don't know what the fuck is going on with humanity recently that a lot of people honestly don't *care* about that. Caring is important. Caring is the most fucking important thing you can do, what the fuck else is the point of us otherwise?

An old colleague of mine is making the trip in February to go help in a refugee camp on Lesbos, with Movement on the Ground. She's fundraising for the trip (not for personal expenses, but for travel and the kit they'll need), which she'll spend working with the kids in the camp, providing them with schooling, music, drama, sport, basically giving them a *childhood* after everything they've been through. Children shouldn't spend their days frightened and abandoned in a barely-fit-for-purpose camp. They're *children*. Of all the fucking things that have happened this pissing awful year, fucking hell, they're *children*, and we can't keep taking out our massive adult fuck-ups on *children*.

I'm donating what pathetic money a student budget can give to her, but the main thing I'm able to do for her is signal boosting. It's going through a particular bank account rather than a JustGiving site or something similar so I can't give the details of it here for any randomer to pick up and do nefarious things with, so here's the system: if you'd like to contribute (think of it as a Christmas present to me? ;) ) then comment on here or message me (please have your journal set so you can receive messages in reply - I pretty often get messages from people I type a response to and then find that they've actually blocked messages from coming into their account, it's pretty frustrating -_- ) and I'll give you her email address, and then *she* will give you the bank details. If you don't have an LJ account, comment with an email address (if you're anonymous the comment will be screened, so no-one else will see your address) and I'll email you.

I won't be able to make these long or personal messages, sorry - remember that my arms are utterly fucked, this is my day's allotment of typing right here - and I'm really sorry and don't mean to be rude if it's very clearly a cut-and-paste job you get in return. For those I seriously owe messages (niitza I must owe you like twenty -_-; ) I'll try to get back to you soon <3 But if you want to harness the power of the internet to physically *do* something, do let me know - and I hope all of you spend the next few days warm and comfortable and well and loved and loving; be well, everyone, and thank you for every time you raised the brightness in the world during a very, very trying year for all of us. Some lights are very small, but if enough of them glow, fairy lights can illuminate an entire room <3

Pack Mentality, part three of four, the third part of the yes it's an mpreg Wolf Moon universe. I really, really need to get caught up on comments, I know, I'm sorry -_-; Barely even been writing recently, let alone contacting people, but Gollum has now been removed from my house, and I'll hopefully have the energy to do *something* again soon. Christmas around the corner is making me feel rather jolly - fairy lights everywhere and fun things to drink - and I hope to find the spirit to contact people before the day itself <3

Disclaimer: I don't own any of it, and promise I'm only playing with it.

Rating: A very adult sort of R, for distressing subject matter.

Warnings and spoilers: See the first part for warnings, and please do take them seriously. This is the part where a lot of the issues with gender and race become very much put to the forefront, so it can get distressing in *all* kinds of ways that way, tread carefully if you need to. There's also violence and the threat of violence directed at children and pregnant people.

Summary: If people pour out poison, someone will end up poisoned.

Today is not a good day and I feel very, very despondent right now. Thank you to those people who got in touch with me - I'll try to get back to you soon, but it was weirdly touching to think that one of the earliest thoughts some people had was, 'Rainjoy's not going to like this.'

Rainjoy really doesn't like this.

But I got another email today I wanted to share with you all, because I still need to believe that decency - not even superhuman above-and-beyond but just very basic *decency* towards each other - is not a minority characteristic. So, JustGiving sent me an email about the fundraiser for Médecins Sans Frontières from last year, which raised in the end £1,289 to help people around the world in very desperate situations. It was in their top 7% of fundraising efforts last year. And that's amazing. That's really something, you really did something, and thank you, for that. I have to believe that people will continue really trying to help each other. I have to believe that we're better than some of the things we've seen recently. Because we *can* be, and so we can't allow ourselves to be *less* than that.

I feel very tired and shocked and wrung out. But I'm going to try and keep hoping. I'm going to try to work out what else I can do to help. Because I know the world can be a shitty place - fuck, I *know* the world can be a shitty place - and because I really believed some of that fucking superhero fic, we *know* what it is to suffer, we *have* to help other people when they do. And in our own small way, last year, we did. And we can do it again, and we can keep doing it, bit by bit and person by person, because I don't know what the hell else life is but that, every day, doing the best you can in the face of what might be the worst circumstances.

Things can be achieved in the face of all odds. They are every day. Protect the most vulnerable people you know, because they are going to need it; protect yourself from the worst, because everyone has to rest sometimes; protect the things you cannot let go of - the baseline of decency we cannot allow to be scrubbed out - because some things, if you lose them, you've lost everything. You have to draw a line, somewhere, of what you refuse to abandon because it means abandoning your own humanity. Draw your lines, care for your neighbours, however distant, and remember that there really is good out there in the world, and you've been part of it and you can be part of it again, every day you can.

I feel too tired even for a drink. Take care of yourselves, and each other, and remember that where there's been good before there can always be good again. Humanity has always lived through worse. Draw your lines: hell if we're going back there. *Hell* if we're going back *there*.

Pack Mentality, part two of four, the third part of the yes it's an mpreg Wolf Moon universe. Dropping this and probably vanishing, I'm afraid - completely spent, horrible week, health gone even further down the toilet, and all of this because my new housemate is such a horrifically awful person to live with we've been forced to demand he leaves by the end of next month, and I've fitted a lock to my bedroom door. Appreciate the good people who live with you (the group in the house in this fic do); the bad ones can very seriously ruin your life.

Rating: A very adult sort of R, for distressing subject matter.

Warnings and spoilers: See the first part for warnings, and please do take them seriously.

Summary: When you crack the cellar door, things may escape.
