I'm still around, not dead, not terribly depressed or anything. I just still have no home internet. Hopefully, I will scrounge up the cash to make that happen soon enough. Life's pretty decent, almost to my six months review time at my new job.

I went to see The Hobbit last week, it was good! I could tell where it had been padded for trilogical reasons but it wasn't too terribly slow. Only one part really felt like a complete tangent but the hedgehog made up for it. ;)

My birthday is this week, I'll be...32. Wow, just getting older and older there. Speaking of special days, my holidays were way better this year than they were last year. I dis-invited my family en masse and threw a Yule party for the Solstice to which I invited the family I liked and my dearest friends. We had a complete blast.

...nothing else is very interesting? I miss having internet access all the time. XD

Come on, you know you want a hand-written holiday card from me!

I know that the DW/LJ community has kinda dispersed of late, but that just means that those of you who are still around mean even more to me. ♥

I've had a lot of people ask, so here it is! Right Place, Wrong Time, my multichaptered Shawn/Lassy fic, is now available on Ao3.

You can find it here.

Feel free to bookmark/link/download/coment/whatever over there. It won't going anywhere, I promise. :)

Title: How Still My Love
Author: Regann
Character: Charles/Erik
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don't own anything; I just play with them.
Notes: None!

Summary: A mysterious sleeping disease, three loyal guardians, and a friend-turned-foe with unclear motives. It might sound like something out of a fairy tale but it's life after Cuba in the Xavier manor for what's left of the so-called X-Men. When Charles can no longer lead them, it's up to Hank, Alex and Sean to figure out a way to protect their mentor, especially once Erik comes seeking an audience. (Variously nicknamed "the Fairytale Fix-it," "Snow Charles and the Three Wishes," and "Alex feels via Charles/Erik." All three are pretty accurate.) ~20,000 words.

Because I have no time and no internet. LOLSOB.

Anyway, I hate you, DNC. I just want to say this. It is royally screwing up my life because I live in Charlotte and work for the County AND IT IS MESSING EVERYTHING UP. I wish it was in Kansas or somewhere FAR AWAY FROM ME.

In other news, some of my friends are super excited that they got tickets, yay them.

So, I'm working on fic. Go me! They are:

1. A finished XMFC C/E fic (20,000 words). Waiting on one last set of feedbacks before I decide what to do with it. Two of my pre-readers really seemed to enjoy it but they love me so they're also very nice always. ILU guys! ♥

2. I'm currently writing a long CA/Avengers/MCU fic. WHAT IS MY LIFE? I could've sworn I swore off all comic book movie fandoms for eternity. Anyway, this is all [livejournal.com profile] pookaseraph's fault because she couldn't contain her Steve feels after Avengers which means I had to rewatch CA and now I have all these Steve feels, too. And Bucky feels, which is why I'm writing a Steve/Bucky fic. There are not enough of these in the world!! Does anyone ship this other than me?

3. I have an idea for a Common Law babyfic I'm supposed to be writing, but...lol, see #2.

4. Still plugging sloooowly on Not Just a Ghost's Heart. ILU 4EVA JECHT.

Wow, someone in this coffee shop has horrible and horribly strong colonge. That they apparently bathed in. EW.

I hope everyone is doing well, maybe one day I'll have internets again!
regann: (gate & garden)
So! My new job is amazing and full of things to do and just awesome stuff. It's doing library stuff and paralegal stuff (although not quite so much of that yet) and then also admin stuff and my boss informed me on Friday that there's still so much I have to learn and I'm very excited. I love my job. It makes me cry how much I love it.

The only downside is that I still haven't worked out internet access for myself and I rarely have time to troop it to a coffee shop where I can bum wifi. (This is what I'm doing now, lol.) Hopefully, I shall figure that out soon enough or make more time for coffee-shop-trooping because I miss the internets. ;;

In fannish things, I am working on my Jecht/Auron resurrection fic (slowly) and I've been waiting for the finale of Common Law so I can bang on some longfic ideas. I'm supposed to be working on my star trek bigbang but, um, that hasn't quite happened yet. Bad meeee.

I also suddenly realized I have a ton of Steve/Bucky feels that snuck on me out of nowhere? Maybe I just needed to make peace with my Thor and Loki and Thor/Loki feels first but it just hit me last week that I ship them so hard. Steve and Bucky, I mean. Maybe it was the TWS announcement that finally tipped me over the edge. Two years to anticipate!

Um, I finished a XMFC WIP that I've let languish since March when I was like "FUCK YOU, XMFC FOREVER" for ~reasons~. It only needed about 3,000 words to be finished (it's a one-shot, it is NOT the last Engine of Creation story) so I made myself sit down and write them because I hate fic sitting in my abandoned folder. Holy hell, I felt really accomplished when I had. So, I don't know what that means in the long run, just...yay, I did it.

How's it going with y'all?

Title: Not Just a Ghost's Heart (Chapter 1)
Author: Regann
Pairings: Jecht/Auron, Tidus/Yuna
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I don't own anything; I just play with them.
Notes: This is probably the most self-indulgent thing I have ever penned. This is set after FFX-2's "Last Mission" release, so it contains spoilers for it and the good/perfect endings of FFX-2.
Summary: Three months after his resurrection by the fayth, Tidus is happy on Besaid with Yuna. But it seems like the fayth aren't quite finished showing their gratitude -- and it seems like Spira might not be ready to deal with the consequences. Jecht/Auron, Tidus/Yuna. (aka: RESURRECTION FIC, KIDS!)

So, since my last RL update, I worked my two weeks' notice at PronCo. Yesterday and today, I've been loafing around before I start my new position tomorrow. Wednesday is just orientation at the main HQ; Thursday is my first day on the actual job.

In my awake time, I don't feel all that nervous, but I've been tossing and turning at night for a week now, so I guess that's how my nerves are manifesting. It still seems surreal -- I still can't believe I won't be going back to PronCo eventually. I think it'll take a few weeks at my new job before I lose that feeling. Hopefully by the time my classes start back in mid-August, everything will be settled with my new job.

I'm trying to focus on the exciting aspects of a new job and not the terrifying ones, basically!

The answers! )

Yeah, I'll probably be posting a little more in the next week or so before I can't so much, lol.
regann: (Sailor Pluto II)
In RL:
- Wrapping up work (my last day at PronCo is the 20th)
- Experimenting with cupcake recipes
- Getting ready for another semester of Paralegal-y goodness
- Fighting the battle of the cat pee smell that will not fade (damn you, Morgana!)
- Reading THE NEW SAILOR MOON RE-RELEASE MANGA O M G


Fannish:
- Um, I signed up for the Trek Big Bang and plan to write...nuTrek? WTF?
- Trying to decide on my next Common Law fic idea
- Staring hard at my WIPs from multiple fandoms and trying to decide what to do with them
- Trying to clean out my icons on LJ/DW to include more of the new stuff I'm interested in
- AN ART PROJECT

Speaking of #4 on the Fannish list, I've tempted to pimp myself out. How about I make a list of shows/characters/things I want icons of and if you make me a spiffy icon for it, I write you a drabble in trade? I'm just really lazy with the icon-making these days. XD
regann: (Balthazar magic circle [TSA])
So that personal thing that has had me tied up in knots for the last few weeks? I got a new job! FINALLY I SHALL LEAVE PRONCO BEHIND.

It's actually a really sweet deal; it's with the county government and it's definitely more along the lines with what I want to be doing with my life. I'll make more (not by much) and have much better benefits.

I don't start until the 25th, so I don't put my notice in until Monday. I AM SO NERVOUS! I've been here for six (sometimes miserable) years and change is hard.

I am really fluttering between SO MUCH EXCITE and COMPLETE TERROR but I think this is a step I need to take. I know PronCo isn't going to change or get better and that's what I've been going to school for, right?
regann: (Darien+Hobbes [partners])
Lots going on in my life at the moment -- will this post be about any of them? No. It will be about Amazing Spiderman which I saw last night.

Spoilers, okay? )

Perhaps later this week I will make a post about the actual shit in my life but, for now, I'll leave you with my squee.

Regann's Personal Words of Pimp

I mean this seriously when I say that this community is the most fun I've ever had in the FF fandom and that includes the hilariously wonderful years I spent RPing. The community has really fun activities, the challenges are really stimulating and everyone is a complete and utter sweetheart. I mean it, I have never met a nicer group of fans in my entire life! I know this worries a lot of people but there's no real participation requirement that not meeting will get you kicked out. Not that it's a problem because it's so much fun to do! I usually find myself waiting breathlessly for whatever activity gets posted next because I CANNOT WAIT TO DO EET.

I really recommend joining to anyone who loves any Final Fantasy series, especially if you're looking for some new place to get news/fanworks/discussion since we lost FF Press. This is the community, in all honesty, that keeps me from leaving LJ.

So please check it out and come join us! If you apply, tell 'em [personal profile] regann sent ya. ;)

So my last post was very whiny and sad and then I went and emo-ed everywhere for a while. I'm finally starting to see a little less GRRR at the world, so I thought I'd do a quick post about the amazing-ness of today.

In no particular order:

- School is out, so I had the morning off work and no class to run to. I slept late (like 8AM), went to breakfast, did some shopping, then had a long lunch with a friend.

- I got an AMAZING deal on some clothes at Catherine's. They're having a 40% sale this weekend and I got three career dresses (I'm building my "I'm a paralegal" wardrobe) that are all swishy sheath dresses with little jackets over top. They feel and fit great and look wonderful. YAY.

- I got an AMAZING deal on shoes! I've been looking for a pair of sandals that are similar to the ones I have now (but without being worn out) and I've been looking high and low. I finally found them at Rack Room, in the Clearance Section. I got them for $6. SQUEE.

- When I got to work, I realized that I had a nail in my tire. One of my coworkers, the building maintenance guy, found it and patched it for me for free. AMAZING, right?!?

- It's Friday. And a payday! I bought my toiletries and things for my vacation next week. Woot!

- THE GRIMM FINALE IS TONIGHT. \o/ \o/ \o/

- [livejournal.com profile] ff_land has started back! If you're into Final Fantasy and want to have tons of fun on LJ doing hilarious things with awesome people, you should join! <3

I've only got about a half-hour at work left to go, hopefully they won't ruin my amazing good mood. That is all. TGIF, everyone!
regann: (Go Directly to FAIL)
So I wanted to come and make a celebratory “FUCK YES” post about how I was finished with my semester (with two As, booyah!) but then my boss called me into her office and now I just want to cry.

I got a “promotion” in that I’ve been given a ton of shit to do that I’ve never done before and that is emphatically not what I was hired to do. And there’s no training, just “you have to learn as you go.”

...FML. :(
regann: (regann)
So I asked a few weeks ago about new shows, here's what I've been watching/trying to watch:

- Grimm
Loving this so far!

- Scandal
The pilot was killer!

- Revenge
So glad it's back!

- Suits
Trying to watch this but the USA re-run schedule is whacko.


If you have thoughts on any/all of these shows, feel free to lay them on me in the comments. I would love to discuss them. :)
