HEY are you feeling down?

Well buy yourself this little flower crown Arthur Shappey to remind yourself how brilliant you are.  And never be sad again.

I REALLY REALLY WANT THIS but the tote bags only have black handles. T_T

y’know black handles are all the rage this season dont let that stop you bruh

The only downside is that I live in a place where it regularly gets over 110F+ during the summer, and black handles tend to heat up/get super hot when walking around. XD

I am really tempted, though…i might get it anyway and just get a different bag for the summer.

Edit: I caved and ordered. :D :D So exciteeeeeed.

SOMEONE JUST EARNED THEIR CYBER EMBRACE THANK YOU <3

SO I have never seen Supernatural before and I was browsing the channels today looking for something to watch and Bones starts in like one minute so I went there and it was the tail end of a Supernatural episode AND I DID NOT EXPECT DEAN TO SOUND LIKE THAT OMG. NEITHER OF THEIR VOICES WERE WHAT I EXPECTED.

Now I’m honestly afraid to watch that series because I’d cringe every time they opened their mouths. (DEAN YOU SOUND SO OLD NOOOO).

Yet another reason to not get sucked into that show.

(Apologies to any Supernatural fans I may have inadvertently offended. I do not do scary things. I shall stick with my crime shows.)

You are spoiling me (well us) Thank you :D

This was already written, I just hadn’t had a chance to edit it and post it yet. :) Work’s keeping me busy so I don’t have much writing time right now, but I’m looking forward to when I do!

Summary: 

“He tolerates flight?” Mycroft inquired.

“Oddly, yes.” Anthea shivered.

“Have him here tomorrow, then,” he said, pushing John Watson’s file back towards her.

“You haven’t even heard about the third person,” she protested.

“I don’t need to.” Mycroft looked at her, and this was the Prime speaking, not the person. “I have made my decision. You will start his training. Introduce him to the T4/T5 teams. Do what you need to do, Anthea.”

Can be found on AO3.

Another chapter of The Tower will be going up when I get home from work~

Fear is felt by writers at every level. Anxiety accompanies the first word they put on paper and the last.

A Missing Piece - Chapter 10 (x)

Soulmate AU Mystrade, written for the lovely rykoe-little-black-book!

Mycroft is the man who thinks he has everything. His perfect job. His perfect home. Even a little brother (although he certainly ranks among the most annoying). Despite other people and their fascination with finding their soulmates, Mycroft has abandoned any idea of finding his ‘Second’, not after the traumatic death of the first person that was supposed to love him. And then Detective Inspector Gregory Lestrade walks into his little brother’s life, and Mycroft finds himself unnecessarily fascinated.

(I’m posting this at work because I just finished it, but I don’t have access to ff.net here - that will be posted when I get home.)

(Also - SURPRISE! :D The edits didn’t take as long as I thought they would. So you get it now instead of later.)

A Missing Piece Chapter 10 - Preview #2

Mycroft felt like his stomach had twisted into knots, the food threatening to come back up. Had Greg simply come to - to end things? Did he not only have to stab Mycroft, but twist the knife? Mutely he drained his own glass, picking up the meal he could no longer finish and walking towards the sink. He felt like his heart had broken, like his world had shattered. Placing the plate by the sink, he nearly jumped when he felt arms wrap around him.

“Hey.” Greg sounded worried. “You look like someone just died.”

Someone did, Mycroft thought, the words cold and lonely in his mind. “Do forgive my presumptions.” He moved out of Greg’s grasp before turning and offering him a polite smile. “I shall not bother you in the future, with the exception of matters pertaining to Sherlock, and I am fairly certain Anthea can handle the majority of the issues as they should arrive-” Greg looked horrified. Mycroft wasn’t sure what exactly to make of such an expression, so he simply stopped talking. Maybe Greg didn’t want to hear any excuses, or maybe the thought of having to talk to Mycroft again down the road was simply too horrific to contemplate.

“Mycroft?” Greg frowned. “Are you kicking me out?”

Yes. “No, of course not,” Mycroft said smoothly. “But I do have to say that I see little point in you remaining here if you are intending to sever the minor tie between us.” He turned back towards the counter, fussed with something, anything. His hands were shaking. Distracting.

“What? When did I say that?” Mycroft wouldn’t turn and look at him. He couldn’t.

“When you mentioned that you do not wish to pursue a further relationship,” Mycroft said. He picked up a salt shaker (an elegant one, a gift from his mother, paired with a pepper shaker) and moved it a few centimetres, and then moved it back.

“I - Mycroft.” Greg sounded so plaintive, so heartfelt, that Mycroft almost turned at the sound of his voice. But he couldn’t. If he did, he would be lost, and the hurt would break him. He couldn’t take it, not again. “That’s not what I meant.”

“But it is what you said, is it not?” Mycroft inquired, his voice cold.

On track for a Friday update!

5.8k!!! So excited :'D

Doing prelim edits right now. ;) Depressing thing about editing for me is that I tend to gain words instead of lose them. I have to flesh out transitions, make things make sense, etc.

I am a wordy human being oops.

Hoping to send this beast of a chapter to my beta tomorrow and get it posted on Friday. <3

I’m so so happy to hear you’re looking forward to it~

Look for an update on Friday~

'I’d like question 8,9,18,32 and 50 answered if you have time )'

Why, yes I do. :D

08: What’s the best piece of feedback you’ve ever gotten?

Oh gosh. This one’s hard. I honestly value every bit of feedback I get. I really like making people cry? That sounds weird. But. I like knowing that something I wrote made someone feel that way? It’s a huge accomplishment.

09: What’s the worst piece of feedback you’ve ever gotten?

I’ve had a couple people comment on how they were disappointed that something didn’t match their particular headcanon. I consider myself fairly lucky that I’ve avoided the negative comments that seem to plague other people.

18: How do you feel about love triangles?

Threesomes. Foursomes. Everything can be solved by more people involved.

More realistically, I do think that poly relationships are something that should be explored more (and that’s actually on my to-do list). I also think that love triangles can work as a triangle, as long as there are ‘legit’ reasons for the triangle to exist as a triangle. If that makes sense.

32: How do you feel about friends and close relatives reading your work?

THIS HAS SUCH FUNNY TIMING OH MY GOD. One of my friends just messaged me about how she had decided to read some of my fics (and she, of course, started with the smut). I almost died. Now she’s onto other things, but. Still.

Right.

Family - oh god no. None of my siblings have any interest, and my mom would probably kill me. She’s mildly to-majorly homophobic and…just no.

50: If you could live in any fictional world, which would it be?

That’s…actually a really difficult question. Probably Pokemon. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be an uneducated 10-year-old going on a quest? Harry Potter would be another option. I’m also fond of a lot of Anne McCaffrey’s universes…
