I am in a whirlwind--but a good one. :D Last week, I took off work and finally (finally, FINALLY) moved into my amazing new apartment. I painted the walls and everything. A wonderful fandom friend and her delightful family helped me move, so it was actually a lot less stressful than it could have been. I'm still living out of boxes and have some more furniture I need to buy before the place can be truly set up, and I don't have INTERNET AT HOME yet, which has been trying, but, god, I love it so much already. I cannot wait for it to be all settled. I'm going to be so happy in my new home (and get a DOG). Moving is so expensive, though, and I still have so much to buy/do. /o\ AHH.
As you can imagine, this has kept me PRETTY BUSY of late, but I've been writing! Yesterday I posted my spn_meanttobe fic:
Title: Off the Menu
Fandom: Real Person Fic: CW
Rating: NC-17 for explicit sexual content (underage, 17/21 between main pairing, but there is some kissing before then), physical, sexual, and emotional abuse of a minor (all off-screen, only the aftermath is shown), prostitution of a minor (between 15/16 when he starts), character death (not main characters, one quick but somewhat graphic description), underage drinking, brief mentions of suicidal ideation, and a homophobic slur
Word Count: 26,565
Summary: AU: Jared is an injured kid wandering down the side of the road the first time Jensen meets him. He brings Jared back to Baby's, his father's diner, to help. As they grow up, they become close friends, but just when Jensen is beginning to realize his feelings for Jared may be more than friendly, Jared disappears.
Years later, Jared returns to his diner, but he's not alone. Every night, he comes in escorted by a different john, and Jensen quietly aches for the boy he fell in love with.
I'm pretty happy with it, but honestly, the most important thing is the art quickreaver did. HAVE YOU SEEN THIS ART!?!?! God, can we fucking talk about this fucking art. Jensen's tummy and little bb!Jared. I am the luckiest writer on the planet. Seriously, look at the fucking art.
Now I have to hit the ground running because I post my spn_j2_bigbang on Monday and I have SO MUCH STILL TO WRITE. /o\ Fortunately, I have no internet at home, so distractions do not abound. -___- But seriously, wish me luck because between these fics and the moving, I may just collapse and never get up on June 9.
ALSO, IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD:
Claims for spn_cinema started yesterday but are still going on now! I snagged Bladerunner, and I am going to finish the robot Wincest fic I have owed blythechild for almost 2 years now if it kills me. XD
Good luck to all my artists and authors getting their bigbang drafts in shape! WE CAN DO IT!! \o/\o/\o/ And then SOOOO MANY SHINIES TO READ, YESSSS.
