((You may notice that I am attempting to use British spelling and punctuation in these chapters. That's because, according to my research, Malcolm is a Brit. It's my self-indulgent fanfic and I'll do stunt writing if I wanna!))

((Okay, I'm tossing this up here for, essentially, typo catching. This is a fanfic based on the first 8-9 episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise, plus Star Trek Online, and I only barely care about continuity after those episodes, because if I'd waited to watch the whole thing, this fic would've been gnawing at my mind the whole time and blocking me on stuff. It is, pure and simple, self-indulgent as nga'chuq. I wallow in it. And now, if your standards have been lowered enough, you may read on...))

How is it Sunday already?
So Not A Morning Person
archangelbeth
Got to bed WAY LATE because Percy decided to sleep on my lap, interspersed with licking my hand cutely.

I... apparently really missed having a lap cat. *sigh*

Havva Quote
My former employer and I had a falling out. I wanted to end our association, and he wanted to kill me.
--the Orion Marta, upon being asked, "Why did the Klingons capture you?" in Star Trek Online, Federation plotline.


(I did a lot of STO today. And while I am rather tired of the Fake Vulcan Ambassador episodes, there is one bright spot: Vulcan Traffic Control going, "Welcome to Vulcan. Please... ehn-joi ...your stay." Like "enjoy" is this excessively foreign word that can only be spoken by some kind of rote syllabic repetition, and she has to consult her notes any time it comes up to remember how to pronounce it.)

So. Much. Fanfic. Writing.
Braaains!
archangelbeth
I tried to make a push to finish it, and have... gotten a lot closer! *headdesk* I forget what it was last, but right now it's at 37K and if my characters keep being chatty it's gonna be 40K before I'm done. Or at least once I start adding notes about what headcanon I'm using and stuff like that.

...I want to finish it SO MUCH. *cry*

(For one thing, I want to watch more episodes of Enterprise, but if I do that before I finish the dang thing, I will fall down the rabbithole of Endless Revisions, and dadgummit, this is SELF INDULGENT FANFIC. I am going to wallow in it, no matter how out of character things might turn out to be in subsequent episodes. O:p )

I have a feeling that this is where Zack will spend most of his time, watching the road and guarding us from all comers. He'll probably be disappointed--we won't get too much traffic. Still, he can keep a sharp eye out for rogue squirrels.

ROGUE SQUIRRELS! RAAAAAAR!

...the druid squirrels are even worse.

*removes kitten from trying to eat the computer cord* NO. ...he sulks noisily. Like a tiny furry Darth Vader.
*watches him come over and try to eat the OTHER laptop cord* NO. *puts him on the other side of the chair, by the scruff* *watches him sulk*
*repeats again*

Actual Friday
SurpriseLion
archangelbeth
Which was, for kid, pretty much a day of rest and goofing off and hopefully recharging her spoons.

I have managed to get a bit more momentum going on fanfic -- still have to figure out a bit more Awesome for everyone -- and whilst I was doing so, was sitting in one of the chairs in the waiting room while kid did horn lesson... and it did bad things to my rump. I was getting shooting pains in my sacrum area after I got up, and of course I had to carry the kid's horn down... um, basically one and a half flights of stairs, or thereabouts. Fortunately, I made it to the car. Carefully. And then sitting in a regular chair at home has helped. Still. OW.

Meanwhile, spouse spent a chunk of time with his uncle waiting for the furnace people to come repair said furnace. (Does anyone want a 350K or thereabouts house in MA?)

This is the front of the house and will be the wall of the guest room, assuming that any of our friends will still come to visit us now that we live in the far north.

Virtual Friday
Braaains!
archangelbeth
So there's a teacher's workshop tomorrow (real Friday), and that means no school for students. Plus a long weekend, with Monday off. HOORAY. We need one.

I need to gird my loins and go back to finishing the darn fanfic. I've just had so little motivation to do anything but refresh Twitter endlessly. O:p

Have been reading some more of the Hugo stuff -- 3-body Problem does better in PDF (where the footnotes are right there) than in epub, where the poor app winds up grinding through large chunks of itself to find where the epub footnotes are hidden. Woe, woe. (It is not my first choice for winning, but it is well above No Award, being written and translated quite competently, and even though the SF is currently very low-key, the different cultural stuff is fascinating, too.)

Edit: Oh, hey, new dragcave dragons!

Havva Quote
Around him were numerous computers in various states of disarray. They had run out of table space and put a few workstations directly on the floor, where power cords and networking wires formed a tangled mess. Instead of being installed in racks, a bunch of routers were left haphazardly on top of the servers. Printer paper was scattered everywhere. A few projector screens stood in various corners of the room, sticking out at odd angles [...]. A cloud of smoke hovered over the room.... Wang Miao wasn't sure if this was the Battle Command Center, but he was sure of one thing: Whatever they were dealing with was too important for them to care about keeping up appearances.

Recovering appetite.
Sigh
archangelbeth
Honestly, I could do without the ravenous hunger thing. >_<

Kid went to school, and handled stress pretty well, but had virtually no spoons for that important thing known as homework, so augh.

(PSA: if you have a fantasy that you could "rescue" some non-neurotypical kid somehow... Consider that telling them this is a bit like some person sitting down next to you and telling you about how they have this great fantasy that you'd fall in love with them (divorcing inconvenient spouses) and you'd run off together and be very happy la la la. Because, well, you're reducing the person you're talking to... to the hapless non-entity puppet of your fantasy. And when we're talking about a kid on the autism spectrum, it dismisses the incredibly hard work that they're already doing just to make it through the day sometimes! Plus, well, think about it: the issues are pretty much in the person's own brain. In the end, it's going to be that person who makes any breakthroughs, or makes tiny steps towards them, or otherwise achieves stuff. And having fantasies, while human... Um, don't tell the person that you're having Real Person Fanfic of You Saving Them in your head, y'know? It's creepy.)
