Ramblings of the Week, June 17, 2018

beddy

As you know, I finished Stay and updated What Happened to Spock this past weekend.

My lonely days and nights are over as my sweetie came home late Saturday night. Yay!

Tuesday will be the latest update on my Old Married Spirk story.

I intend to get to When I Loved You and Anything this week. Possibly also Nine Lives and/or The Sight.

Coming up at the end of the month we’re off to Vegas for the sister’s birthday. We’ll be gone the 28-30. Then it will be about time for the 4th of July. It’s on a Wednesday which makes for a little more of a challenging celebration. We’ve already been invited to the cousin’s on the 3rd as her city always does their fireworks a day early. She has a great location up on a hill to see them. We’ve gone the last like 3 years there so I am pretty sure this will be our 4th year doing that. We’ll have food and drink first. The 4th will be at the sister’s house, and then it’s back to work the next day. Boo.

I think that’s about all I have to say now.

Author’s Note: June 13, 2018

My apologies for being behind on updates on AO3.

I got to working on this new Academy story and I really would like to get it finished before I go back to anything else so I don’t have another WIP languishing for months, etc. This is only going to be 5 chapters. It starts with Chapter 1: The Message, Chapter 2: The Beginning, Chapter 3: The Middle, Chapter 4: The End, and Chapter 5: The Future.

Once I have all that finished, I hope to go back to updating other stories. Unfortunately there’s some stuff going on in my personal life that is preventing me from being as productive as I’d like to be as well.

The only thing I can say, that barring my unforeseen death, I intend to finish everything.

So I appreciate your patience and understanding.

Ramblings of the Week, June 11, 2018

 

IMG_0733My days off work are almost over and I am sad I have to go back tomorrow. At least that means it’s less days until M comes home on Saturday night.

So far I’ve managed to watch seven movies and several episodes of Criminal Intent. I’ll watch a few more today and then after work probably some as well.

I’ve been working on my academy fic here and will likely update that again soon. Tomorrow will be another 100 words or so of my OMS story.

Up next on AO3 is What Happened to Spock, but I don’t really feel like working on that story right now. Maybe after the academy story is finished.

At the end of the month I have another couple of days off to go to Vegas for sister’s birthday. Something to look forward to. Before you know it we’ll be celebrating Independence Day.

My Plans (personal)

So last night I was looking for my DVDs of Law & Order: Criminal Intent (my favorite show, love Goren) to start watching episodes and while I was there, I also went through the movies I’d like to watch over the next 10 days.

So in no particular order, this is what I chose:

The Princess Bride

Tombstone

Rio Bravo

Erin Brokovich

Silkwood

Steel Magnolias

5 TOS Original Series Movies (I may skip the Motion Picture)

Seems like there are more I am forgetting! Anyway together with Criminal Intent that’s certainly a start. I am also betaing my friend, Kris’ book, so I have to allow time for that as well as to write the next couple of parts of my 100 Words story. And knowing me I will probably squeeze in a few episodes of Forensic Files.

Starting tomorrow afternoon, I am free to do as I please until Tuesday (when I have to go back to work), so yay!

Would be nice if I got started on the next chapter of My Devotion too! Not to mention I am still reading Needful Things by Stephen King and a book by Dr. Weil that M is making me read!

What’s next for me in the updating? Unbonded. Next for the Kirk and Spock in that story is some major Pon Farr and bonding action. As I think I said, it only has a three chapters of that left and one is the Pon Farr chapter coming up.

Then I am back to my boys in The Experiment. I look forward to that as both both are ridiculously smitten with each other.

Following that will by My Devotion. I am going to be continuing this story for some time as I think I will bring the timeline eventually into the Beyond time, etc… So while Jim may no longer be under the threat of Khan’s bunch, more adventure awaits.

We’ll see how far along I get with these as I’d also like to post more of The Sight and Nine Lives.

But I will be alone beginning Wednesday until June 16th and I have tendency to get absurdly lazy when I am and just watch stuff that makes me happy like movies and Star Trek.

I am looking to buy a new Loveseat from Wayfair this summer. I hope to do so soon. I have the one I want picked out, I am just watching prices, etc. I’ve never bought my own couch before as I have always gotten hand-me-downs, so I am pretty excited about it.

Anyway, that’s about it from me. Thanks for reading.

Weekly Rambles, May 30, 2018

Okay, so. Had a nice weekend for Memorial Day. Too much socializing honestly. M’s friend came over on Saturday, then we went to the cousin’s on Sunday, and then the family’s on Monday. Woo. I am exhausted just thinking about all that company!

Last night we were going to go see The Book Club (aka the old lady movie) because the cousin wanted to see it but it ended up being sold out! It was in a tiny theater and was $5 Tuesday. We went to Corner Bakery instead.

No more movies until M comes back from visiting family in another state. Unfortunately the cousin expressed an interest in seeing Solo. I am so over that franchise and have heard not so great things. I am looking forward to Jurassic Park and Incredibles 2 though.

I updated You’re in My Veins this week. I also posted the first three chapters of The Sight to AO3. I will likely post the 4th chapter here before I post it there, but at the moment it is unwritten. You can expect an update of my very sad 100 words continuation story on Friday. Other than that, I just don’t know what’s going to come next.

Hard to believe it is almost June! Where does the time go?

Ramblings, Week of May 21, 2018

Currently I am working on off Archive stuff. The 100 Words and The Sight.

Next up on Archive stories is Where My Demons Hide. I’m delaying working on it for a number of reasons, but the most relevant here is that I want to take Jim to a very dark place next and I’m not really sure how well that will go over with readers. I really can’t get the idea of what I want to do out of my head, so I am torn. I suppose I could write it and then “delete it” and consider it as a “deleted scene” like they do in movies (for example the scene where Amanda and Sarek welcome baby Spock, or Amanda tells Sarek she’s not happy with his response to Spock’s bullying, or the part where Sam leaves and Jim tells Frank he doesn’t want Sam to leave and Frank says what Jim wants is nothing because he is nothing).

Anyway, that’s where I am at, so…right now it’s stalled.

I updated a lot lately on there anyway so it’s cool. It’s time to let others shine on there with their updates.

Not sure when I will have chapter 3 of The Sight up but the next part of 100 Words is up tomorrow, Tuesday.

I took Friday off of work, so I have a 4 day weekend for Memorial Day Weekend. I am greatly looking forward to it.

This week we will finally see The Avengers. We never saw the original Deadpool so that’s not on our agenda and none of us is eager to see Solo, so that may push us next into whatever comes out in June after this. We shall see.

End of Weekish Ramblings, 05/10/2018

You get a very very very pretty Chris Picture today!

Last rambling update for the week, I promise!

Got The Experiment update done and up. I am a little insanely in love with this Jim. Chapter update was almost 3,000 words. Go me!

I thought I might have to wait to post an update to My Devotion but I am moving right along with writing it so I anticipate getting it up tomorrow. Just hit the 60,000 word mark which is super exciting for someone who is not a long writer like me! This one might surpass Going Boldly as my longest.

Tomorrow is the next part of my 100 Words story here on the blog.

Sunday is a Mother’s Day BBQ here for us. Saturday I expect to chill but I may do some work on the holiday story just to keep plugging along with it. Hard to believe it’s approaching the middle of May already. It will be summer before you know it. We’re dropping down into the 70s for the next week or so which is extremely welcome May weather for us.

Thank you for those of you who continue to support my stories by reading them. I wouldn’t be doing it anymore, probably, if it wasn’t for you, and I thank you most sincerely.

There are only two more posts for the 100 Words story and I’m considering just posting them here today and being done with it so it can get posted to the archive. Any opinions?

I have started my one and only holiday story for 2018 and have a good start on it.  I think I am going to forgo chaptering it and it will be a one-shot. It will be ready in plenty of time for posting in December. I needed to take some pressure off myself. Wasn’t sure that I was going to write any this year but I decided if I did one and wrote it well before December I could be okay with it.

As I said last week next up is Unbonded, Nine Lives and The Experiment.

Last week’s doctor’s appointment went well. Weatherwise we are in the 80s which s fairly typical for May.  Hope everyone has a good week.
