::coughs pathetically::

I have been sick, friends. Last Monday I woke up with a cough and it just went downhill from there. Flu test was negative. Strep test was negative. Doc finally diagnosed me with pneumonia and gave me three days of antibiotics. So I'm feeling much better, except for the cough that doesn't want to go away.

Yesterday was my first day back at first job, and tonight will be my first day back at second job. I'm already feeling the loss of the afternoon nap I got used to taking. I don't imagine I'll be worth much by the time my shift is over.

Being sick put a real wrench in the works in regards to writing things and getting them finished for deadlines. But I did manage to get some things done. Including my [livejournal.com profile] romancingmcshep fic, which I sent off to be beta'd today. Posting to follow soonest!

I neglected gushing over [livejournal.com profile] blueraccoon, my dear Shoobie friend and awesome person in general. Her birthday was on Monday, and unfortunately she's getting sick too. But she should absolutely be celebrated, not the least for finishing her epic Star Trek fic quite recently. (Like, triple digit wordcount epic. For reals.) Love you, Becc!

I cheated on International Fanworks Day by posting just the art I'd done to accompany my fic. The written scenes have been posted as I finish them. Still to finish are my [livejournal.com profile] sgareversebang and [livejournal.com profile] picfor1000. Hopefully I can make more headway now that my brain fog has lifted.

Here are some fics that got posted in the last couple of weeks but not mentioned here:

Title: Last Blind Date
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: McShep
Characters: John, Rodney
Warnings: romantic Valentine's Day schmoop

Summary: Rodney didn't have high expectations for a blind date on Valentine's Day, but for once he doesn't mind being proved wrong.


Title: Date Night Distraction
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: McShep
Characters: John, Rodney
Warnings: explicit sexy funtimes

Prompt: Author's Choice, any couple, one of them wants to make out during the movie, and the other actually wants to watch the film

In which Rodney wants to watch the movie and John has to put in a little extra effort to distract him.


Title: Protect & Serve & Take Selfies
Fandoms: Hawaii Five-0/Lethal Weapon (TV), more to come as new installments are added
Pairing: pre-McDanno at the moment
Characters: Danny, Steve, Martin Riggs, Roger Murtagh
Warnings: not yet completed

Summary: Danny and Steve are asked to present at a Law Enforcement convention. Steve's reasons for accepting have less to do with sharing the exploits of Five-0 and more to do with a certain special guest he's been dying to meet.

I don't think you cheated for IFD at all. Fanart as well as fanfic welcome, right?

Glad you're feeling better. Hope you get your energy up.

And boy, I hope that beta gets your story back to you soon!

Well, my beta is pretty awesome so I already have my fic back. ::grins:: Thank you!!!

You're right about IFD. I just hate posting WIPs. But now that the Romancing McShep fic is finished, I can get the next scene of the convention fic done and posted. Goals!

<3 love you too, even though we haven't chatted much lately ♥ ♥

(Also, it's six digit word count, thank you :P But I only got to 89 chapters.)

I didn't word that right. LOL! I meant three digits like 200K, not 200 words. 89 chapters! ::boggles:: I can't imagine ever having the energy to write something so long. You're amazing!

I am! Still some coughing that can get ugly, but for the most part it's smooth sailing. ::grins::
