I have been incredibly lame with livejournal over the last few months and I apologise (here's lookng at you, santacarlagypsy and girl_wonder, in particular). I have been here, just quietly. Life has been very hectic (and good!) for me recently and, as ever, that always seems to mean my online presence disappears. :(

Buuuuut, I do seem to be on the cusp of a couple of new fandoms! Which is all sorts of exciting as there's been very little that's interested me fannishly for a long time now. My BBC Sherlock enjoyment has gone from reading the occasional story to obsessively refreshing the kink meme and I think it's likely I'm just denying the inevitable at this point. And WHY HELLO X MEN FIRST CLASS ♥__________♥.

Later on, I may attempt some sort of RL post under flock. For now, though, to summarise: new city, new apartment, new job = HAPPY SOPHIE.

Missed you guys. ♥

Anyone up for doing a quick Brit-pick on 3,500 words worth of Killjoys fic?

:D? :D? :D?

So last Monday I began to Not Feel So Well, and I thought: well, it is winter, after all, and I've done super duper well to avoid developing any semblance of a cold so far, and I've been working lots and lots so okay, body, let's do this, I'm ready!

Cue: gastric flu with a fever of 104 (and sinusitus! and a nasty cough!), which culminated in such severe dehydration that I could barely MOVE or THINK or, you know, BREATHE and had to be rushed to A&E Saturday morning to be put on a IV drip. So, all in all, NOT SO MUCH FUN and yet TERRIBLY DRAMATIC. Plus, after a week of phoning in sick to work and feeling increasingly as if they were giving me the mental sideeye (I am PARANOID, okay), there is something incredibly gratifying about the line: "Sorry, I won't be in today. I'm in the hospital. Apparently I nearly died. :D?" SO THERE YOU GO.

ALSO ALSO ALSO. I am feeling FANNISH AGAIN, YOU GUYS! \o/ \o/ \o/ And it is a leeeeetle bit embarrassing because I was perhaps a teeny tiny bit JUDGEMENTAL and all grumpy!face back in the day when there was that massive exodus from SPN to bandom and I cried big emo tears onto my keyboard because all these amaaaaaaaazing people were LEAVING ME >:( >:( and it WASN'T FAIR >:( >:( And yeah, so maybe I had a buttload of MCR's previous stuff, and I liked it all well enough but I still didn't GET IT because these were awkward, not-so-attractive boys and WHY WOULD I WANT TO READ ABOUT THEM DOING STUFF? BORING BAND STUFF? And maybe thanks to philosiraptors I saw Art is the Weapon when it was first put on youtube and I thought it was interesting, yes, and the song sounded promising, yes, and I very much liked Gerard's new hair, yes, but that was pretty much it.

But then came the video to SING. And then came a PROPER watch (or twenty) of Na Na Na. And then I actually got some quality time to listen to the album. And, ever since I got well enough to look at a computer screen for any length of time, all I've done is read meta and fic on the Killjoys. I WANT TO ROLL MINDLESSLY AROUND IN THIS UNIVERSE ALL DAY, GUYS. The characters! The story! Ugggggggh dear god. I want to pack a suitcase and take up permanent residence in Gerard Way's brain. I CANNOT GET ENOUGH. I actually made a choked noise of SHEER JOY when I stumbled across the kink meme. I perhaps need help. I certainly need to discover the best comms to follow. :D :D :D

HELLO. LJ is telling me that my last update was mid-September and just - WHAT. WHAT HAPPENED TO OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER? I do not understand. ;____;

Okay, that's a lie, I do understand. This is what happens when you're working three-now-thankfully-only-two jobs in the service industry. UGH. My life at the moment is not so much fun, lemme tell you. There is something wholly depressing about workingworkingworking and not being able to spend any money.

BUT. Come January, I will be in New Zealand! I will be working, yes, but it will hopefully be taking me a step or two closer to a Real Job, so there is that. Then South-East Asia! Then China! And tonight I have just taken what I believe you Americans call a 'mental health day' (otherwise known as 'feigning snow-related debilitating injuries') and my mother is making smoked haddock chowder and I will not be moving from my bed except to eat. Goooooood times.

So yeah. Not dead - at least not yet. And while I probably won't be around properly till the craziness of Christmas is over, the end is in sight! Somewhat. And I'm hopeful that when I'm in New Zealand, working 9-5 and being relatively friend-less, with nothing but law applications to distract me, I may even have time to become fannish again. A girl can dream. :)

Warm bread and brie and a bottle of pinot noir. ♥

So it's been a while since my last update. I'm still here and reading - just quiet at the moment.

I have come to the conclusion that I am a very bad book reader. Because it's all or nothing for me - either I won't be reading at all or I will be so caught up in a book that I will be reading every spare moment of the day/night and get that headache behind the eyes and feel all listless and grumpy and resent social engagements for taking up precious reading time. Fail, self. /o\

Generally, I am feeling like a big bag of useless at the moment: my room is a mess; I have no money and no full time work with which to attain any; and I need to sort out the year ahead of me and travelling and such like but the effort just seems so much BEYOND ME right now. UGH. This feeling of general crapiness is only made so much worse by the realisation that I'm not being fair to the guy I'm seeing because there's a pretty massive imbalance of emotion and he's falling over himself to be amazing to me while I'm not even sure I want a boyfriend at all. D: This culminated in me steeling myself to break up with him tonight and miserably failing to do so in the face of his LOVELINESS and his assurances that we can be as casual as I want us to be! he is okay knowing that he likes me more than I like him! he can give me more time to think about it! D: D: D:

I'm putting you on notice, life.

So I'm DONE. ALL FINISHED. My final project was due in at 4pm yesterday and I had so much I should have been doing afterwards but I was so tiiiiiiiiiiiired ;___; that I pretty much had to sleep instead \o/ So NOW I am packing like a mad thing because I am going to Turkey to sun myself by the sea and eat and drink and be merry in THREE HOURS. Still need to make it to the Post Office, oh boy.

Any comments that I've received over the last couple of weeks I will get to when I come back, promise! But busy and then tired and then busy and then sun and sea :D :D :D

Byeeeeeeee.

I am honest-to-god having fun right now, reading the preparatory works to the European Convention of Human Rights, which was written circa 1950 as a collective Western European response to the atrocities that occurred during WWII. Because the British Government is busy being that kid in the playground, threatening to take their toys home with them unless the game is played exactly how they think it should be. And the French have just made an incredible rebuttal, calling them out on their ridiculous behaviour. In official documents. It's AMAZING.

Yeah, yeah, you wish you were me etc etc.
