[sticky entry] Sticky: Fic master list

ysobel: (attacked by a pencil scribble)
Here is a list of fic that I have written since 2005. The list is not guaranteed to be complete, and does not include snippets that were never officially published. Some pre-2005 work is still available; see the end for details.

This list does not include spoiler warnings, content warnings, or any other kind of warnings or tags. (This is not an attempt to be insensitive; rather, I haven't found a warning/tagging method that works for me, or that I have been able to maintain with any reliability.) I give word counts where I know it, and note remixes and crossovers, but that's it.

Fics are sorted by fandom, then by date (old to new).

My AO3 account (here) overlaps this list; not everything on AO3 is listed here, and not everything here is on AO3. One of these days I will get around to fixing that. Maybe.

fandoms: Buffy, Firefly, Harry Potter, Heroes, Lord of the Rings, Merlin, Numb3rs, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Trek AOS, Star Wars TPM, Stargate SG-1, Supernatural, Vagrant Story, White Collar, X-Men (First Class), and misc )

This list is up to date as of May 3, 2015

Today I learned welsh for sea, ocean, Pacific, Atlantic, North, and Mediterranean.

It seems like bodies of water are all Môr (sea) and cefnfor (ocean) is for nonspecific use like I swim in the ocean.

I will never remember Tawel, Canoldit, or Iwerydd, but I did find it interesting that for the Pacific Ocean, Môr Tawel, tawel translates to quiet, and for the Mediterranean, Môr y Canoldir, canoldir also translates as midland or inland. Duo didn't tell me either of those, I looked them up.

I am baffled, though. This unit is Countries, though I'd've called it geography since it covered continents and oceans as well as countries, but one of the sentences I got?

"Do you want new tights?"

ysobel: (wow: ooh shiny)

I have $37 of stuff in my Steam cart

(spore complete, undertale, stardew valley, catlateral damage, unium)

I don’t even know if I can play them because mobility and hand issues

but shiny want-y games!


*removes SV, stares at remaining $25*

*adds primordia, tiny bang story, please don't touch anything, eyes $31 total*

I am in need of a new mouse; current one (evoluent vertical) is dying and also ergonomically bad for me (yes it's an ergonomic mouse, but I'm a special snowflake).

What I need:
* because of mobility restrictions, I'm looking at things that don't move -- so trackballs or joysticks. Small touchpads might work, I don't know.
* because same, dual-hand or lefthanded
* scroll wheel preferred but not required (current mouse's scroll hasn't worked for two years
* PC running Windows 10.

Anyone have suggestions, recommendations, anti-recs, advices, etc?

Moar welsh

Non welsh stuff -- niecelet has learned to say "oops", but in a very Scandinavian way, more like øpps. It's freaking adorable.

Welsh word of the day: daearyddiaeth. (It means geography.)

Welsh/duolingo wtf of the day: why does "gwlad fawr ydy America" -- country big is America -- translate as "America is a big country"? Why isn't the verb first? Why isn't the subject first? I'm so confuuuuused.

Dear duolingo,

Refreshing my knowledge of words is good, but did I really need five reminders that "actor" is welsh for "actor"?


well fuck

A) Remember parsnip-indecisive Owen?

He showed up again. )

B) Welsh possessive confuses me. As far as I can tell, in a sentence "X has Y", Y is the grammatical subject -- I have an orange cat (yes, they gave me that sentence! proof )) is Mae gen i gath oren, where mae is third person and not first person -- but also things change; I also got this ) and I *think* fi glosses directly as me rather than I, which makes sense from the standpoint of the possessed being the grammatical subject -- Russian also does "at me is thing" rather than "I have a thing", so "is dragon black belonging me" works, but then why is it Mae gen i gath oren and wah -- unless gen and gyda actually belong to two different verbs -- *quiet sobbing*

C) I hit a pretty streak number today. Read more... ) Next major goal: 730 (hahaha yeah right)

I have a neck pillow that is shaped like a penguin. Well, a very oddly shaped penguin. It has a penguin head at one end, anyway. I use it sometimes in place of a pillow under my head. Today I had a French braid in for a wedding I was attending (I even wore a dress zomg), and I didn't want to take it out, but lying on my back means it would be all lumpy and ridgey against a pillow, and I am very sensitive in that regard -- can't even wear the cpap mask harness "properly" because that would put a buckle under my head. So, tonight is a neck pillow night.

My aide (the awesome one) asked if I'd read Golden Compass, and when I said yes, she said that the pillow looked like my daemon.

I was vastly amused, and quite okay with the thought of a penguin daemon :D

Welsh wtf

No no no no I was just getting used to *beginning* consonants changing, now you're dropping final consonants too? In spelling, not just pronunciation? Wahhhh.

(Five is pump, pronounced pimp. Except when it's bump. Except when it's bum. Mae hi'n bum munud wedi pedwar: it is five minutes past four. Mae hi'n bum munud i bump: it is five minutes to five.)

(Argh and it's not just "mp becomes m before m". Six is chwech, but six minutes is chwe munud. I guess munud is a hungry word?)

Also why is it "bum munud ar hugain) (five minutes on twenty) and not hugain bum munud silly language.

Otoh I have a decent streak going:

Brecwast (breakfast) is frecwast in this sentence.

Also I still don't get why you say things like "mi ges i reis i swper" (translates as I had rice for supper) and not just "ges i reis i swper". Especially since it just gave me "ges i gyri a reis i ginio" (I had curry and rice for lunch).

In "words that are so hard to remember" category, welsh for salad is salad...
ysobel: (welsh)
A sentence in today's lesson: "Do, es i i'r dafarn" -- yes, I went to the pub.

Immediately after, I get: "Naddo, es i ddim i'r dafarn" -- no, I didn't go to the pub.

Make up your mind...!

(I'm not clear on the difference between es i and dw i mynd, nor why "mi es i i'r caffi" has mi (glossed as to-me) at the beginning but translates as I went to the cafe, or when you use ddydd versus dude, but eh, it's not like I'm a very advanced speaker, lol.)

Today's movie ended up being Deadpool instead. Such tragic.

(And there were brownies. Much woe.)

ugh what my a/c might be broken

* I survived the last week (obviously), but am completely and utterly drained. Not miserable, just empty.

* plans for this weekend have involved Jurassic Park marathon, crochet, tea, and sleep. Best weekend ever IMO. (Am skipping church because I just am running on empty.)

* blood tests got ordered and done, including all of the thyroid stuff and multiple vitamin checks. I am a little paranoid that they will all come out normal (which will give my lovely Inner Critic a chance to say that obviously I was making a big deal over nothing), but it's weird to hope there's something wrong, so idk.

* hand pt continues. am still hopelessly amused that several of my finger problems are definitely hypermobility.

* haven't finished POC Destrpy SF yet, not anywhere close, but it continues to be awesomeness.

* I have managed to maintain my duo streak! still doing welsh for the moment. Dw i'n hoffi dysgu Cymraeg.

* have not written much (ell, anything) lately, but the Secret Garden plotbunny continues to gnaw at my ankles. I am slipping it carrots when no one is looking.

Chorus rants, like livetweeting only longer and also posted afterwards:

rants )

Carmina Burana is so fucking fun to sing.

It helped that we had great soloists (the tenor/swan totally hammed it up, the soprano had a gorgeous voice, and the baritone, omg, his voice and his humor and his pure enjoyment of Tempus Est Iocundum (and okay also he looks like a friend of my dads that I totally had a kid-crush on))

and that it is such a rush to do

and I wish I were a guy-voice because the tavern stuff

but regardless

the Tempus / dulcissime / ave formosissima / o fortuna sequence gives me goosebumps several times

This week is sort of going to be sheer hell.

Tuesday I just have choir 4-6 and 7-9:30, because concert week means extra rehearsals.
Wednesday I get to meet with wheelchair people about the new chair not working for me (it functions, but I can't sit in it for more than two or three hours before my tailbone starts hurting. Need more tilt range and/or way better cushion)
Thursday I have a doctor consult (possible new gp, because the thyroid stuff was sort of a last straw and also he's within a few years of retiring), a book group discussion, and the same choir schedule as Tuesday.
Friday I have hand pt in the morning, then choir 4-6 and the concert at 7.

...I have trouble getting through Rehearsal Hell Week when it's the only thing on my plate. I'd have trouble with the w/th/f non-choir stuff (dealing with the wheelchair people and trying to convey my needs is stressful, meeting with new people is stressful, and I have to get up slightly earlier than normal for the hand pt). With the two combined, I'm not quite sure how I'm going to survive without imploding.

Add to that the fatigue issues I've been having, and the fact that this weekend was enjoyable but high-energy (sister and niecelet in town for the weekend, niecelet is still absolutely the cutest, but she's a handful, and dealing with my mom is stressful, especially when she's being passive aggressive (did I tell y'all about the lunch fiasco?) or trying to help or criticizing my sister's parenting choices (my mom insists my sister lets niecelet get everything she wants; I think that my sister is treating niecelet like a person with her own desires, and is respecting her choices when she can and either deflecting niecelet's attention or explaining why something's not happening, and my mom just doesn't process that sort of thing right), and so even though I got a fair amount of sleep I'm going into the week tired), and ... I don't even know.

Had a dream last night where I was at this ... combination gift-giving and murder mystery dinner (though the mystery was who was going to get "killed" and how; it ended up being one guy pulling a gun, and fumbling it, and a second guy pulling out a knife to go after the target, and the first guy using that distraction to "shoot" the target in the head.)

But while I was there, my mom called to see if I was ready to go to a thing with her that I hadn't remembered her telling my about in the first place. And I said no, I was having fun here (at the dinner) and so was staying. And she came in to get me, and I said that I wanted to stay, and we ended up in a sobbing screaming match. Well, I was sobbing; she was just ... being all calm and stuff in the specific way that people do to make you look like the irrational one.

It got to the point where I went to find the murder mystery coordinator to go HALP, and my mom followed while arguing her case, and the coordinator told my mom that she should go away, and I cried a lot in frustration and then went back just in time for the "murder".

I don't think I need much of a dream interpreter for this.

(The "getting into fights with a parent (usually my mom but sometimes my dad) where they are calmly treating me like a child and I am emotionally flailing and raging" thing is a common dream motif for me.)

Woo hands

Saw hand pt today. She is awesome.

Interesting tidbit: she thinks / is fairly sure that I have some form of hypermobility (apparently crackling achy finger joints is a clue), which is a nice confirmation of my own suspicions. Not that I can prove hypermobility at this point, but. (I also realized today that some of my pseudo-mobility, e.g. Arm movement wren shoulders are fused , may be because of hypermobile/stretchy bits.)

She made an awkward disapprovey face when I mentioned crochet though.

Anyway I have compression gloves (in fashionable beige) and a shiny new nighttime brace:
