We moved! Still in AZ, but now in Glendale. I have a room! We have a pool! I also have a horrific sunburn. I just started taking Zoloft a few weeks ago (holy shit, it's amazing how much that has helped me) and did not realize photosensitivity was a side effect, so I went swimming for two hours on Sunday and today is the first day I've been able to wear a shirt since without cringing.

My forehead, nose, cheeks, and from the elbows up was all lobster red and is currently peeling. And, JFC, the amount of times I have slammed my arms into the doorways since getting this burn is unbelievable. White as I am (and I am PALE lately) I have never burned from less than around 12 hours in a pool before. So I totally thought two would be fine, and I was only a tiny bit pink near my nose when I got out. Then three hours later I was a lobster.

We also have cable now (Cox) instead of satellite and every single thing I watch is now on three hours later because AZ sucks.

I still have no job. I have insurance, though? And unemployment. I kind of got fired at a great time, though, because I've been able to help take care of Ma and go to her doctor's appointments with her, and even though I worked at home before I couldn't go to appointments except for when she could get them scheduled on Wednesdays.

I started a mainline of The West Wing, and I'm up to 2.16 so far. I loooooooooooooove it. So, in about ten years I'll probably watch The Social Netowkr finally too.

I have actually gotten, like. Really into makeup. Really really. I know, lose your job and then find something expensive to like, right? But I totally have learned how to pinch pennies and the magics of things like online surveys and ebates (holy shit, if you shop online you need this place, it is totally legit and I've made $20 from shopping). Also, not hesitating to return anything that doesn't work for me. Doesn't matter if it's .99 or $60, if I don't love it, I take it back.

Also, I made a giant OCD spreadsheet that is an itemized inventory of everything makeup that I own. Because, hi, me.

Fandom-wise, I am totally still in Supernatural (though, holy shit, S9, what. Just what.), I watch Teen Wolf (as Tumblr says: Jeff Fucking Davis is a gift I'd like to return), and I live on Twitter more than anything else.

And now, a meme!

10 (fandom) Facts About Me
Just list 10 facts about fandom/ships/characters/kinks/headcanons whatever you like!

1. I joined fandom when I was 12. I'm 28 now, so I have spent more than half my life (16 years) in fandom.

2. The first ep of Teen Wolf I watched live was the S2 finale, and the first ep of SPN I watched live was Route 66.

3. I skim the sex in fic most of the time. Sometimes I'll read it, but for the most part once it starts I skim and pick up when it's over. This is probably a big part of why I get annoyed at fics where the ending is that the two characters have sex. I feel short-changed.

4. I cannot and will not read fic with drug use. I can't. I hate when there is random pot in a scene in a fic and that usually makes me make Ugh faces at it. The last time I said something like this I got defriended y a lot of people, but right now I don't care. It doesn't trigger me in the way you think of when people say "trigger" but it comes awfully close.

5. I love mpreg. I do. IDEK what it is. I used to kind of like it, and then I like it in a weird shameful way (mostly because LBR, good mpreg is hard to find) but when the mpreg is good it is SO GOOD and I am totally fine with you guys judging me.

6. I also love easter eggs in RPF. I love reading J2 and spotting one-off and background characters. I play that "MATT BOMER! FBDKS IT'S JASON MOMOA!!!" game where I flail all over like when I catch Aldis in a rerun of Bones.

7. Parallel AUs, too. Where you change the main setting but you can still see it poking through? GIVE THEM TO MEEEEEEEEEEEE.

8. I'll go through phases where I don't want to read anything but MCU Avengers genfic or Tim/Kon or something else weirdly specific that isn't a primary fandom of mine.

9. 90-95% of the shirts I own are fannish tees. One is Sherlock, one is Teen Wolf, and basically everything else is Supernatural or DC.

10. I love bottom!Sam like air and I will never stop being sad that fandom by and large prefer bottom!Dean and incredibly toppy top!Sam.

Because I am supposed to post my Big Bang tomorrow and am resisting the urge to crawl under my desk and cry instead (WHY, HORMONES? I DO NOT NEED YOU RIGHT NOW).

So. There's this SPN meme going around. You may have seen it? I barely update anymore, and I stopped doing reaction posts for SPN a while back, so it occurred to me that people might thing I'm not utterly head-over-heels in love with it anymore.

BUT THAT IS NOT TRUE BECAUSE I TALKED FOR 1,600 WORDS UNDER THIS CUT FOR THIS DAMN MEME. )

My Stats As Of Right Now
I'm eating: Nothing, but I had liverwurst on crackers earlier.
I'm drinking: Water (Arrowhead, nom nom)
Touching my: Laptop (with) my hands.
In the middle of reading: This Sick!Sam fic by [livejournal.com profile] shangrilada, who is amazing.
# of tabs open: Only 4 in Window 2, but 53 in three groups in Window 1. It would be more but I accidentally murdered a group of tabs a few days ago.
Non-fannish tabs: ...I don't understand what that means. .25? Sometimes I get non-fannish things in my email.
I am arting: My [livejournal.com profile] mpregbb art. Eventually. Sometime later today.
I am writing: This entry! And Sam's EpiPen, and [livejournal.com profile] ohsam's fics in various states, and pretty much everything.
Big Bang y/n: SO MUCH MOTHERFUCKING Y!
Procrastinating on: Betaing [livejournal.com profile] unavoidedcrisis's Polybang, my [livejournal.com profile] mpregbb art, and the 400 page doc of notes and chatlog for what will hopefully by this year's Big Bang.
Considering: How to procrastinate best once I'm done with this.
The weather is: "Mostly cloudy" by Arizona standards.
In front of me: Is Sam, my bitchy laptop who keeps having Hell flashbacks and needs to be restarted multiple times a day.
Behind me: Is the living room couch and the island in the kitchen, because I'm laying on the floor at an angle.
Listening to: Top 100 Hip Hop Hits on Fuse. Saturday TV blows so hard.
Sherlock: vnjcsd;lakrvnjmcvure
I am happy about: Man, even random memes are trying to make me be more positive. We're going to Walmart today and I am very happy to be leaving the house and doing things that are semi-productive.

Day 1: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Drop a link to your post in the comments.

1. Postcards (From Easy Street) (Sam/Jess, Sam/Dean, NC-17, 43,200 words) She's his baby brother's new girlfriend. He's some stranger who knows more about her boyfriend than she does. Together they fight crime have sex talk on the phone a lot. (Oh, and also there's some guy named Sam who keeps getting his ass kicked and has a run-in with some incubi-infected frat guys.)

I really like this fic, you guys. I know a lot of people don't like Jess and/or het, and the Sam/Dean is all emotional with no sex directly between them in this, but I am really proud of this.

2. My meta!meta on heroic motivation. I miss when I had time to type up my thinky thoughts.

3. Sideways and Super Troopers: The Humor of Sam and Dean Winchester. I really miss having time for thinky thoughts.

Day 09 - Best scene ever

God, there are so many! I think... The scene in Smallville, in the Pilot. The scene, where Lex drives into Clark and they go off the bridge, then Clark saves him and does CPR. Small little clips of that were used to promot the show and I still remember them and how awesome they felt.

That scene, and the scene with Death in Two Minutes to Midnight. There is not a single thing about that scene that isn't completely perfect.

Day 10 - A show you thought you wouldn't like but ended up loving

SUPERNATURAL. Oh, yeah, I was convinced it was going to be a giant pile of shit. I heard "it's got Lana's boyfriend from Smallville and Dean from Gilmore Girls" and my brain cried. Then I heard about Bugs—I saw Drone, which was Smallville's bee episode and it was horrible then too—and I was convinced it was going to be complete and utter shit and beyond any kind of redemption. It didn't help that I had scene about three minutes of Wendigo in the middle.

And then I caught Asylum and Faith back-to-back on Easyview and was HOOKED. It was all downhill from there.

Day 11 - A show that disappointed you

Prison Break. I didn't have particularly high expectations, but it was even worse than I could imagine. They had a death row inmate working with a shovel and non-death row inmates. I just. I don't even. SO BAD.

Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times

I tend not to rewatch episodes a large number of times, because since I have a photographic memory to begin with, if I watch it too much I will start to hate it. That being said, I don't think there is actually any way for me to actually get tired of Bones' very first Christmas episode. The Man in the Fallout Shelter makes me flail SO HARD I don't have the right words for it.
