That is all.

I moved in with the boy almost two years ago, and he already had a roommate at that time. This weekend, the roommate has vacated to her girlfriend's house (with all 3 of her cats), the boy is at a conference, and I HAVE THE HOUSE TO MYSELF. Myself and the cat that I'm responsible for because she's my mom's only my mom can't really take care of her anymore and it's totally cool because I have my couch and she has her loveseat and everyone's happy. Other than I should scritch her ears more, but she thinks I should scritch her ears 24/7.

I don't quite know where to begin. What music shall I blast? what tv show or chick flick shall I watch? What food shall I eat? How shall I tidy the house? How much of the bed can I in fact sprawl on all at once?

On the other hand, I haven't been this properly alone for this long in almost two years--because I'm pretty sure I'm going to have the house to myself all week, unless roommate actually decides to bring her cats back that quickly or the boy has to leave his conference suddenly and early--and OMG WHAT IF THE ZOMBIES FIND ME AND KILL ME. Or the toilet breaks. That's probably more likely to happen. WHAT DO I DO THEN.

I told the boy I was watching Doctor Who and Castle this week with or without him. He retaliated by buying the entire season of DW on Google Play. Whatever, man, I HAVE NEW WHO TOMORROW. And a couch all to myself. With sea salt dark chocolate caramels and chicken salsa verde BECAUSE I CAN. I am going totally going to live up alone time while it lasts.

HI.

I'm still alive. No, really. Just--stuff and things and life keeps happening. Seriously, when I get home from work I mostly want to curl up and play Minion Rush or something else relatively mindless.

But, can I just say, I have been totally loving on Forever? Like, this is the show where my happy place is right now, the show that I am excited about every week because OMG THERE'S A NEW EPISODE YAY. Castle is still a happy place for me, but I'm not OMG YAY about it like I am with Forever. And it's all Ioan Grufford's and Judd Hirsch's fault and they are so adorable eee I can't even and if I ever get my fic-writing mojo back there will be DW/Forever crossovers you bet your sweet bippy.

Also Agent Carter was awesome and cool and so enraging that I wanted to punch every man in the face on average at least twice an episode. Which made for a lot of wincing by my fiancé.

(Um, yes, hi, I have a fiancé now. Fiancés are cool? My engagement ring is a TARDIS. I am not kidding, y'all. ) He proposed by standing at our favorite place in the whole house--there's a step there between the kitchen and the den, so he stands at the bottom so I can stand at the top and be almost equal height with him--and asking, "So, you wanna be my companion through time and space?" BECAUSE THAT'S HOW WE ROLL, YO.)

I might disappear for months on end again. It has been known to happen. Sorry about that.

We saw About Time in the theater this afternoon, and this evening in our quest to finish all of New Who before the 50th anniversary, we watched "The Angels Take Manhattan" and said good-bye to much-loved companions (again, in my case) but the repetition still didn't stop me from BLUBBING ALL OVER THE PLACE. Because apparently that's what I do.

Sentimental old fool.

(About Time was lovely, sappy and sentimental yes, but lovely rather than dramatic, and really, you can't go wrong with Bill Nighy.)

Oh, yes, hi. Er. Life has been hectic, to the point that I dreamt in the wee small hours this morning about screwing up at work and having to fix it. Woo. Thank the gods for three-day weekends.

The Power of Three )

I hate my nose (this is a constant whining refrain these weeks), and I have planned all along that today I would clean house, cull crap to take to Good Will, and otherwise make this place less of a pigsty, but it looks gorgeous and inviting and cool and autumn-y outside, and I would much rather sit on my back patio and read. Blah. I only get the reward after I do some of the work, right?

Right.

This morning, for possibly the first time ever in my life, I looked at myself in the mirror and said aloud, "God, I'm cute."

In other words, this shirt rocks.

(I'm sure it says something about me and the people I hang out with online that this Ace-in-drag icon by [livejournal.com profile] lyssie keeps being entirely appropriate for so many occasions. And the something it says is AWESOME.)

Oh wow, I totally wrote more this past year than I thought I had!

fics, in chronological order )

So, about as much DW as you would expect, about as many crossovers and multi-era DW fics as you would expect, a few new fandoms (yaaaaay! I'm really glad of that, actually; it's exciting to write for different characters and different worlds), and continuing to support the gay and bisexual agenda, woo. I didn't do as much audio fic as I would have liked, and I have a feeling I won't be writing as much in 2012, but...we'll see how inspired I am as the year goes?

Meme, gakked from a couple different places: Your job is now your Time Lord name. The last digit of your phone number is the current regeneration you are in. The nearest clothing item to your right is now the most notable item in your current wardrobe. The last person you texted is your current companion. Your favorite word is now your catchphrase.

So I'm the Archivist, in my 2nd incarnation (or it could be my 4th, depending on which phone number I'm using how honest I'm feeling), I apparently have nothing notable in my wardrobe since there is no clothing to my right--though I have a shawl to my left?--my friend C. is my companion, which is HILARIOUS since he's barely seen anything of the show (but he is a computer programmer, HELLO MEL), and wobble is my catchphrase.

I want a t-shirt that states, "Wobble is my catchphrase."

Fandom, characters: Doctor Who, Amy/Rory, River, Eleven
Word count: approx. 4200 words
Warning(s): spoilery for all of the new 5th and 6th series; will be completely jossed by the 7th series whenever it starts.
A/N: This story started for two reasons: I thought of the first line, and I totally misheard a line in Tori Amos’ Parasol off the Beekeeper album.
Summary: It’s a sort of fairy tale, if you squint right.

A/N: Written for [identity profile] ionlylurkhere.livejournal.com in the dw_femslash ficathon. You give me timestreams-crossing and femslash, of course I’m going to involve Ace somehow. Vague mentions of NAs and BF audios shenanigans, but that should probably also be expected; and general spoilers for the latest series and River's storyline.
Summary: Linear timelines? We don’t need no stinking linear timelines.

Finally, I am catching up on last weekend's Doctor Who.

The Lodger Redux, no, wait, that's not right )
wishfulaces: (alas poor yorick)
I woke up around 10:30 this morning and it was brilliant.

Yeah, I've taken today off from everything and almost everybody--called various family members, chatted with a friend online--but it's been me, and my house, and dancing around putting away laundry, and later dancing around cooking, and I have needed this. A lot.

(Side note: I was walking to the grocery store this afternoon and somebody in my neighborhood has a plastic, silver-spray-painted looking tombstone in their front yard with, I kid you not, hearts and flowers and says "Your time will come.")

Doctor Who, the God Complex )
