I have in my possession a delightful square of honest to goodness shortcake and some nummy white tea, the sun is shining outside, there are birds flitting about, the cats are chittering at the window in their attempt to hypnotize the robins to come closer (so the cats can fling themselves pitifully at the glass), and all of this makes for a perfect day to write.

And I have zero motivation to do so. Zip. Zilch. None. What I want to do is curl up on a lounger outside and take a nap or read something. I also want to have the hot pool guy from that ad I mentioned yesterday show up and give me a massage. And then finish ripping out the front garden for me so I can redo it. HOW ABOUT IT, SCIENCE?

Random things:
* pedantic behavior continues to crack me up. I am proud of myself for not telling someone to screw off for their glasses adjusting, pointed cough of "Hem, hem, well, you see...." malarkey, because they are clearly the type who plop into chat rooms and comment sections to correct people. Wow, that's a sad pastime you got there, chicky-pie. I mean, hey, whatever floats your boat, but that is the least interesting conversation I can think of.
* wait, no, the LEAST interesting conversation is when someone tells you what they just said, then the response is what they thought you said, then says again what they meant to say and then it's a round robin of me wanting to stab my brains through my ear
* I finished posting my Teen Wolf body swap fic on the AO3, Trust Fall, and it's gotten more hits, kudos, or comments than anything I've written before, which is shocking, delightful, and strange. Because it's been very quiet, that story; people aren't linking to it or reccing it (I'm not whining, I'm just acknowledging that) and it's a stark reminder that the Teen Wolf fandom is MASSIVE and generous with unknown writers, as far as giving something a read is concerned. Which is nice.
* speaking of Teen Wolf fanfic, I would like to read stories where Stiles is kicked out of the pack (or made to feel like he doesn't belong/isn't wanted) and then has a happy ending. The best one (the most painful one) is called Sandpapered Corners and No Points by hayesgeneration. Oh, that one hurts in all the best ways.

So? Got any recs that fit that bill for me? (I like reading sad things when it's beautiful out, because I can let the ouch go better that way.)

Teen Wolf fandom is ridonkulously welcoming, and I'm so happy that they're being lovely to you! :)

Ooh, I'd like to read fics about that, too. *chinfists and waits for piles of recs to appear*

I've read a few lately that have just hit me in my solar plexus (and many of them fizzle out, wah) but the one I linked above? I think you and I talked about that one, actually, and it was SUCH a gut punch in the best of ways. She's a great writer, though, and I've liked most everything she's posted.

I JUST WANT OUCHIE FEELS, MUSE. (Fic ones. No RL ones.)

Actually, she's a he, but thank you so much 8D
(I shamelessly googled myself, I know I'm terrible, your words just made me super excited so I had to tell you thank you!)

Look at me with my assumptions, I apologize!

AND SERIOUSLY. YOU ARE A WONDERFUL WRITER. I want you to write a million words of Stiles feeling hurt (and then Derek making it better). :D

Not so much as a kicked out of the pack but just Stiles feels very unnoticed and it has the feels with a side order of BAMF!Stiles. Give it a try and warning it is 18 chapters long.

There is also Happier by grimm but I would suggest reading the trigger warnings first

Well, general FanFic I have a suggestion: http://calvinjason.wordpress.com/ which is a Calvin&Hobbes/Foxtrot crossover when the boys are in college.

For Teen Wolf, I only know one and I haven't finished reading it, but it looks interesting. (I actually haven't watched the show, b/c we don't get that channel.)

Have you read Scarlet by tajita_chan?
http://archiveofourown.org/works/844639/chapters/1612191
It's a WIP, so I can't tell you how it ends, but I like it.
I know there are more, but I can't think of them off the top of my head right now.

Oooh, that Chris Argent/Sheriff pairing has me rearing back. BUT. Thank you so much for linking me! I'll keep it bookmarked. <3

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
