Writing, RL,Etc

Time Lord Victorious
I'm not posting much to LJ lately mainly because it's such a pain.  Glares at LJ.  Even crossposting from Dreamwidth sucks.  So most of my writing is on Teaspoon, AO3 or Tumblr.  I do crosspost to some comms every so often.  RL has sucked.  Between health issues and having a serious family crisis I am so ready for the holiday to be over as well as this year.  I pretty much wish I could crawl in bed and pull the covers over my head and just hide.  I have written a lot, probably because that is my only life break.  I'll probably be online Christmas day because Dad doesn't celebrate any holiday anymore and I will need the distraction.  Maybe I can try and catch up my LJ then.  Of course, that depends on my own health issues.  I have an appt. for tests this week and I have no idea what will happen.  I suspect more tests will be ordered and hopefully this will not impact travel to FL to see my Dad as my brother and I have to try and talk him into moving into a retirement community and selling his home.  Yeah, that convo is gonna be fun - NOT.  I just dread it.  So more stress which probably means I will write a lot and hide out with my laptop.

As far as writing goes:

1.  The Lord of Gallifrey - AU Ten/Rose Georgian/Regency Romance - very Austenish - I'm editing and posting this pretty much every day
2.  Dark Path to Redemption - AU Ten/Rose - very dark - I'm writing and posting this one - will try and update weekly
3.  Happily Ever After Isn't Just a Fairytale - AU Ten/Rose - King and Lady Rose - it's about the braid - yeah I know - writing and posting weekly I hope
4.  Un-named WIP - Nine/Rose and Jack - Blink type story trapping Team Tardis in 1920s at a zoo where the Doctor is the zoo doctor - researching this one

2014 - more planned like Dark Ten Verse and maybe a Victorian verse along with a few others.

I am sorry to hear about your RL issues. We don't talk much on here because I rarely log in anymore, but you are in my thoughts this holiday season. I hope that whatever health scare you are enduring will find a light at the end of the tunnel.

Take care of yourself!

Thanks hon. I appreciate it. It's been hard to be positive lately.

I don't envy you your trip. Good luck on that. I hope you feel better. Tests suck, especially when they keep ordering more. Gawd, I'd hate your stress right now; maybe your dad will surprise you.

It's going to be pretty unpleasant. The last two weeks have been hell. He was forcibly hospitalized and it was really awful. My brother and I have both probably peeled a few years off our lives over this, stressing and worrying. We've tried to help him but he's been a pill and said he didn't want it or blamed us or was out and out horrible to us.

My health is better than it was at the end of Oct/beginning of Nov but I am still in pain. Ugh. I know what it is and what it can turn into. Test on Wed could lead to more tests and then surgery. That then leads into how do I take care of my Dad if I have to deal with my own stuff? It's very overwhelming right now. It would be nice if he agreed to sell the house and move into an apt. At least he'd be around people so I wouldn't have to worry about calling the cops every time I can't get a hold of him for more than 48 hours.

You're probably never going to make your dad do something he is so against. It's hard to accept, and you don't want him to hurt himself; but there is only so much you can do short of carrying him off bodily. Are there church groups nearby? -- who could keep him from being so alone? f it helps, take shelter in your writing even when you're in Florida.

Good luck.

You've been notified that 50 Shades is featured on Teaspoon, haven't you?

Yeah, we are hoping he can see that he needs to be around people. He's not religious so no churches and he pretty much lives in the country. Yeah, I am kind of diving into writing when I can. I did see that 50 Shades was featured! That was sort of the highlight of that day.

My mother is currently going through something similar with her parents right now. She has spent almost three months in Mississippi with them and will be missing out on Christmas with Dad and I. She's the only one of her family that is willing to help her parents (aunt and cousins? NOPE unless there is something in it for them) and we try to call her as much as possible to help keep her sanity.

And for appts, oh man I have a butt load to do myself in the new year. Between gastro, psych (for PTSD, anxiety, depression) and various bloodwork for said specialists.

Onto fanfiction... So glad I got something to read everyday on Tumblr or Teaspoon with "The Lord of Gallifrey". My blood boiled when Reinette showed up. Never liked her in "GitF" and even disliked her more here but she adds to the plot so that's okay.

Dark Path? Hmm... Need to read that then!

Happily Ever After... Oh my baby Jesus! It is SO GOOD! I love when AUs like this are being done and I can't wait to read more. I keep giggling every time the braid is mentioned, though.

So much Doctor Who fanfiction goodness here!

Yeah, it is not easy working with a parent who refuses to do something like go to the hospital when he is injured (and I mean bleeding from head to toe from wounds). We are trying to get him to realize he would be happier around other people. Yesterday was a bad day for me. I was so sick by the time I got home. I was lucky another whofic writer asked me to read over something for her so that was distracting but then I pretty much crashed.

Fic is my therapy!!!! So yeah, there will probably be a lot published over the next two weeks.

Oh fic is my therapy too. I may not write it because I'm freakin' scared to. Especially with it has been a long time since I've done creative writing and haven't edited anything of mine since high school. So for me, reading fanfiction has been a good stress reliever/distraction for my health problems. I'm stuck in the house a lot of time during the week because of so much pain because of Crohn's so I don't got much to do except web surfing.
