Fan Fiction and Personal Rambles



More Ramblings, April 25, 2018


Went and saw Rampage last night with a group of friends. This is the one with Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson. I have to say I found it quite entertaining. But I really like him. He’s really nice to look at and very funny and charming. He had some great lines in this too. Like, “of course the wolf flies”. LOL.

This weekend is my great niece’s second birthday party which will be held at a Shakey’s Pizza. It’s two hours away, which is too far, really, but you do what you gotta do.

On the very upside I think during weigh in tomorrow at WW I will have lost 18 pounds. Go me.

As I indicated earlier, I updated Didn’t We Almost Have it All on Monday. Check it out if you didn’t get a chance because it’s pretty intense. On Tuesday, I updated You are the Light That’s Leading Me.  My goal now for the rest of this week is to maybe get this one finally done. It would be nice to have one of the ones I started in 2016 concluded.

I’ll be honest. Once I finish my WIPs I am considering not writing anymore. I haven’t made up my mind 100% but that’s where I am leaning. No need to worry, I have plenty still going for now but recent events have been discouraging and I just don’t know that I have it in me to keep at this for any length of time. We will see how it goes.


Sort of Weekly Ramblings, April 23, 2018


So last week I was gone most of the week but I still managed to update Where My Demons Hide and Anything. Not bad.

This week my concentration is on two, Didn’t We Almost Have it All and You are the Light That’s Leading Me. I think I am almost at the end of You are the Light. We shall see but that’s how I am feeling.

I don’t know if I will update anything else, I’d like to play it by ear. There may be more or a one shot or just about anything, really. Maybe nothing but those above I mentioned.

As for the 100 words continuation, I have the next four parts written and scheduled and all I can say is that things will begin to look up for our Captain soon! Once it’s all finished, I will likely post it on the archive as a one-shot but you all got to see it here first.

I just managed to pass another birthday. Time marches on as they say.

I have no other trips planned until the end of June. However, M is going to visit family for a week and a half in earlier June, so that’s a week and a half by myself.

I did take the Friday before Memorial Day off just to have a four day weekend.

Anyway, that’s neither here or there I guess.

Thanks for checking me out.

A Bit of Rambling, April 19, 2018

Okay so I am back from several days in Las Vegas celebrating April birthdays in our group. There are a lot. It was way too much socializing for me, to be honest. But there were some highlights as well.

As is fairly normal in Vegas I ate too much. I had great plans to do well on my diet but they didn’t end up working out, alas.

Next up in updating is Anything but I haven’t started it so I don’t know that it will go up today. Unless I write really fast. Which sometimes I do. But I am also catching up at work.

I have more socializing to do this weekend as well as blood tests for the doctor (oh what fun).

I’m behind on pretty much everything so bear with me while I catch up. I do have the next 100 words scheduled for tomorrow.

Some News/Updates

Okay, so despite a very shaky start to the week, things are improving, I think.

As you probably know by now I updated The Experiment, finished Pawn to Queen’s Knight 4, and updated My Devotion.

You don’t know this yet, but I also wrote and scheduled the next four parts of my 100 Words Story (I really need to find a title), as I said I might do. So I won’t need to worry about that until after April 22.

Next up for the week is What Happened to Spock, which I should post either tomorrow or Friday, depending on my progress on it.

Likely this will be it until I return home from my trip, but I think this is pretty darn good.

For anyone that might be interested I have started a new tumblr with an extra dose of caution for who and what I follow but there it is.  I am already following some of you if I could remember your tumblr. I’ve had it for a week or so and have no followers so kind of boring but it is what it is! HA

Next up when I am able to update again will be: Anything, Where My Demons Hide, and Didn’t We Almost Have It All. All three will be challenging but hopefully worth it.

Thank you for your generous spirits.



An Important Question

Would you rather I deleted every single one of my current Works in Progress on AO3 and never finish them and only post a story if it is completed otherwise not bother or would you rather I continue to write at my own pace and finish those stories you have been reading or following? Or are you truly not following stories like My Devotion and Where My Demons Hide because I am just not worth it as I have been told?

Ramblings of the Week March 10, 2018


I’ve found a solution to my financial situation so that’s good. It’s a hard lesson learned but done nevertheless and no one needs to worry you’ll see a Go Fund Me page. Nope. Never.

My first update this week promises to be the next chapter of When I Loved You. because that is where I felt I needed to go. After that, well, we will see. I’ve already written and scheduled my next 100 words to be up Friday.

I think this may be my last ramblings for a while. I might switch to rambling only once a month. I will still be updating my 100 words and posting videos, stories, etc as the whim hits me.

But for now, I’m taking a rambling break. Probably see you again to ramble in April.

Ramblings of the Week, March 05, 2018

I have today off because I needed to go to the DMV to get my driver’s license renewed. I made an appointment for 9 and I am glad I did. When I got there the line for those without appointments was way out the door. At first I thought, what are they not open yet? But nope these were non-appointments. I couldn’t find a place to park there either so I had to go to the courthouse parking lot behind the DMV. I was worried it was going to take me forever, but nope that’s the beauty of an appointment. I was out of there by 9:15.

I came home and got on the exercise bike for 15 minutes too. I have to start small. I am so out of shape.

This past weekend I discovered something that puts me in a very bad financial situation. I won’t go into the details but to suffice it to say it’s not good. It’s temporary but it’s bad and I spent some time crying over it this weekend. It is what it is though, so moving on.

I didn’t do any writing this weekend and I wasn’t really sorry about it either. I’ll see what I can get going soon.

Also the mother has had increasing bouts of dementia that is affecting our family. I mean she’s 91 so you can’t expect them to be happy and healthy forever and she’s had a good life but it’s been stressful.

I intended to do some closet cleaning this past weekend but honestly I am a little under the weather and tired and depressed so I didn’t bother. I don’t know about this coming weekend.

There’s a little humming bird outside my window right now sitting on a tiny tree we have on our patio. He looks quite a lot like this guy here. Super cute

A short rambling

I got a new chapter of My Devotion up today. It was honestly a struggle. It’s been more than a year since I started this story and I am kind of ready for it to be over. I feel like maybe it’s obvious given no one has even bothered to comment on the update. Sigh.

Had a good time on the weekend but it went fast and here I am at work again. I do have Monday the 5th off but that’s to take care of some personal business. Nothing fun.

Other than getting My Devotion’s update done I hope to do some work on the blog story I just posted last night as well as the continuation of the 100 words. I don’t feel like killing myself with updates now so we shall see what else comes my way.



Ramblings of the Week, February 19, 2018


Finished Sleeping Beauty this past week, got up a little short, The Dance, and updated Unbonded and What Happened to Spock. Not bad.

Had some car trouble last week that cost us $893 but after whining some to the sister, she gave us a check to cover it. Woo.

Joined Weight Watchers and lost 4 pounds my first week. Yay.

Not sure what I will work on this week. I did post the start of an Academy Fic (I love those), The Experiment, but we shall see. Technically on the spreadsheet I should be working on My Devotion.

Going to see Black Panther Tuesday. Already got the tickets. This  coming weekend, on the 24th, we are headed to Morro Bay over night. I’m looking forward to it.

Have a good week.
