Uh. wow. It's been a while.

I'm not dead. Really. I'm not.

Just busy as heck. All good things, really.

Liam has started seventh grade. He's doing pretty good and the school is listening when we ask them for stuff, so we have hope that maybe we will have a better year.

Still learning lots and lots of stuff in my Wiccan/pagan journey and it's really just...better than I ever could have hoped or dreamed. I *may* create a filter for this so anyone who doesn't want to hear about the "woowoo" stuff can beg off. :)

Dad's estate is all settled now, which is a relief. Now for the actual "stuff" part: organizing genealogical records and pictures, etc. I have a scanner now so maybe I'll scan and share some pictures here.

Still posting fic, mostly Homestuck, over on AO3. Starting to finish my Hunger Games fic over on ff.net.

I have been busy with various lessons, classes, and lots of family stuff on the weekends. I've left the Episcopal church behind now--it was time to leave. I still love the church but I am just...well, I'm no longer Christian, so I felt it was time. I'll be going to our local Unitarian congregation with Joe and Liam.

I got Blossom accepted over at Milliways...gotta get her in at some point...though at this point, I'm starting to think I *may* just wait till Halloween. For reasons. Good reasons. :)

How is everyone over here? Miss you guys.

Hey there, everyone! Just a note to say that I'm not dead and that things are going better for me here in the land of Springtime and Pollen.

The money from Dad's estate is starting to come in. I'm just really glad that it will hopefully all be taken care of soon.

Spending far too much time RPing on Tumblr which is not nearly as satisfying as Journal-based RPing but it has its charm.

I am still writing away...more ideas than ability to type them. So many fics. Most of them Homestuck. Whew!

Still journeying along my Wiccan/Pagan pathway. I'm not entirely satisfied with my progress but I'm taking it easy on myself.

Next month, I'm going to app Blossom Culp to Milliways. I'm looking forward to playing there again.

AAAannnd that's about it. I'm real distractedy lately but I figured I'd take some time to post here. ...I should probably go do DreamWidth too...

Ugh, everything is causing me anxiety right now. EVERYTHING. I just read something about the Hunger Games movie which I'm not even really that invested in. And *bam* anxiety. What the hell?

not to mention that I have a blazing case of the sads. And it's not just about Dad's passing. I swear to god it's everything from the PAST 12 YEARS REARING ITS UGLY HEAD. I swing from being okay, to being a basketcase, to wanting to cry so hard I lose my voice.

I'm so fucking tired.

I've got so much work at work to do and so much work at HOME to do and I just...can't. Anxiety makes me freeze. I go from being full of dread to being okay. I want everyone to stay the fuck away from me...and I also want someone to take care of me. Frankly, I'm surprised I haven't been picking at my skin or pulling out my hair more. Not that I'm complaining about that...

I'm just glad I front well.

I feel entirely positive about this year--considering how it started out, this is nothing short of a miracle--though I'm not entirely sure why. :-)

It might be my journey through goddess-based religion or it might also be the Tarot lessons or it might also be my family's journey towards Unitarian Universalism. It might be my burst of confidence and creativity. I don't know. I just feel like I shucked off a thousand pounds of baggage at some point.

That said, I've decided to hold off on any more vocal/drama auditions till I get my health under better control. I've gone into a period (starting TODAY) of avoiding sugar, and by sugar, I mean the crap that I really shouldn't eat, like cookies and candy. Bluh. It makes me feel like crap so I don't need it. I've figured out a schedule so that I can get to the gym four times a week.

Right now, I cannot sustain my breath for any decent amount of time, I cannot move well at the moment, and improving my health will help me do these things.

I've also decided to devote some more time to unfucking my habitat. I feel that I keep getting better in this regard, but I could always step it up a notch.

If these sound like new year's resolutions, I guess they might be, and it's about the right time...3 months after the year starts... ;)

Saturday night, we saw an awesome concert by these people, and they played the entirety of Dark Side of the Moon during the first half and various selections from The Wall in the second half. It was incredible, seriously. It was more like performance art, in a way.

They weren't trying to be Pink Floyd, which, in my opinion, was the best part. They basically were trying to recreate the album precisely. One of the best little moments in the concert was between "Great Gig in the Sky" and "Money" where they paused for a few moments because that's where you would flip the record over if you were listening to the album on vinyl. And everything was analog. They used old fashioned alarm clocks, windchimes, bells on the beginning of "Time". And the opening to "Money" was some seriously epic percussion. It was freaking gorgeous. The lead singer looked like Neil Gaiman. And these were not "pretty" guys, these were homely rock and rollers with serious fucking talent. I loved every minute of it, every note and I swear I died and went to Nirvana when they encored with "Comfortably Numb."

It made me realize how much I've missed going to see live music. I miss electric guitars and electric bass, and watching how they do their thing, and I miss the bass drum beats tearing through my chest.

Gorgeous, so fucking gorgeous. I want to go back in time and do that again.

1. Homestuck Update: Made me have flappy hands of joy, for real. I mean, I adore the Beta kids but the Alpha kids are really growing on me. Especially Dirk. Aww, Dirk.

2. I have Feel Good by Gorillaz running through my head, like constantly. Problem is that my iPod is borked (it's like, 6 years old so it might be dead), so I can't listen to it at work and rock out. *sigh*

3. I am feeling like me for the first time in more years than I care to recount. This is a good thing.

4. Good dinner at Olive Garden last night. No stress. It's good.

5. Hubby is teaching Liam to meditate. (Something I need to get better at.) It's helping him fall asleep faster at night and if we remind him when he starts getting overstimulated through the day, it helps him cope with that, too.

6. Still contemplating the Fandom Finishing School (working title) tumblr, but contemplating it more towards actually doing it and making it hapen. ;)

That's all for now. Peace out.

My husband has this on the back of his car.

(Even when we were Evangelical, we didn't have a "Jesus fish" on the back of the car. I mean, how do you drive in a "Christian" manner?)

A lady decided to get OUT OF HER CAR during a red light and start rebuking my husband, loudly. She held up traffic, as well.

I see plenty of "offensive" things on the backs of people's cars. It's their freakin' right to have it.

Christians, please. If you can have the WALL of bumperstickers (ABORTION STOPS A BEATING HEART! MY BOSS IS A JEWISH CARPENTER! KNOW JESUS, KNOW PEACE!) on the back of YOUR car, we can have our Sushi fish and our "Coexist" sticker.


I have a "Coexist" sticker and also one that says "Love your neighbor implies not killing them."

I'm going to get something with fairies on it next. :)

Things with Dad's lack-of-will proceed apace. Which is to say, slow as molasses running uphill at this time of year. *sigh*

The Tarot reading classes are really awesome! I did a practice reading (my first!) the other day and even though I still had to use my notes on meanings, I was still able to open up to my intuitive side and give a halfway decent reading. I guess with some things you just have to jump in with both feet!

I am still writing every day, though I have not posted anything yet this year. This needs to change soon. I have a few feelings about fandom (not specifically Homestuck, but it's my main fandom these days) in general.

I've seen some pretty nasty things go on, not just lately, but in every fandom I've been involved in or witnessed or just heard of. I just wonder what makes some people act so nastily to each other. I wonder about people who will go on anon-commenting and tell someone who has been talking about suicide to "just end it all already".

I wonder about shippers. I mean, I consider myself a shipper but what makes people get so up in arms over it? I mean, you're shipping fictional characters (or real people used as fictional characters)! Why does it have to be something to argue over to the point of threats and serious meanness?

It might have something to do with the age of the participants, I suppose, but I don't really take that as much of an excuse to just not be civil. I really do try to treat anyone I comment to online as if they are sitting right in front of me (ok, with a little more bravery, since in Real Life [tm] I am kind of awkward).

I know meanness happens outside of fandom, but I just...wonder at it on the inside. Because this is something we do for fun, so why can't we just...let it be fun?

Related Tumblr thoughts:

Tumblr, to be honest, is a really lousy platform for fandom. It's hard to have a decent discussion without clogging up the dashboard--and to follow a discussion you are not necessarily a part of is annoying as hell. It's great for sharing art and pictures...but not so great for anything else. I enjoy Tumblr simply because of the visuals, but I am not fond of the Tumblr "social justice" memes, and definitely not a fan of how difficult it is to get to know people on there or have a conversation!

That said, I have been considering making some sort of blog/Tumblr called "Miss Shelle's guide to Fandom Manners" or something. Knowing me, it would never get off the ground, though.

So, fic roundup for 2011!


Fics I have written this year!

A Portrait of the Mechanic as a Young Girl: 25,349 words, 16 chapters, complete. Characters: Wiress, Beetee. Fandom: The Hunger Games Thoughts: That one little word. "Complete." Holy fuck, people, I COMPLETED something!

Two tiny little things of 100 words each:

Tribute and Mentor: 100 words, complete. Characters: Wiress, Beetee.

A Good Death: 100 words, complete. Characters: Wiress, Beetee.

I enjoyed the challenge of writing these short pieces of fiction. I need to write more of them. ;)

I've got two other stories planned out for the verse I created for this fic...but right now, I soooo cannot live in Panem. It's way too bleak.

Everything else is Homestuck. :)

Clerkstuck: 16,781 words, 12 chapters, complete. Characters: as many trolls and kids as I could. John/Karkat, Dave/Terezi, Tavros/Gamzee. Thoughts: what was I even thinking, combining Clerks with Homestuck?? Still, I love the 'verse I created for the fic and I have more fics in this series. I am dissatisfied with a couple of things in retrospect, but in general, I like it.

Everything's All Right, Yes: ficlet, 1,953 words, Sufferer/Disciple, complete. One-off, written for the kink meme. Thoughts: It isn't precisely G-rated. Also, Xenobiology. What the hell am I writing here? I do love this fic, though.

Father of Mine: 4,242 words, 7 chapters, complete. Characters: Bro, mainly. Thoughts: Kind of angsty and I wrote it to get it out of my head. I like it, though, and I like Bro a lot here. It's been Jossed to hell and back but I don't even care. There's another story in the series.

Grubs: 4,618 words, 6 chapters, complete. Characters: all the troll grubs, some troll and human OCs. Thoughts: This is in the New Jersey-verse that I made up for Clerkstuck. I especially like Tavros' foster family and "Crabdad". I was striving for cute here. I think I've pretty much succeeded.

Works In Progress:

The Hunger Games

A Part Of, And Yet Apart: 5,883 words, 6 chapters, ongoing. Thoughts: This is a companion Piece to Portrait of the Mechanic As a Young Girl. It's only stalled because I am stalled on the Hunger Games universe.

Losing Time: 8,668 words, 5 chapters, ongoing. Thoughts: Sequel to Portrait. Once again, stalled till my head is in a better place and I can bring myself to write in that universe again.

Homestuck

it takes two men to make one brother: 793 words, 1 chapter. The second Bro story.

Kindergartenstuck: 10,775 words, 8 chapters, ongoing. This is the sequel to Grubs. There are certain bits of this that are diabetes-inducing levels of sweet. Seriously.

Nameless: 12,103 words, 8 chapters, ongoing. This is the story of the Disciple. I love that girl. It's also kind of sad in a lot of bits. And sometimes kind of cute. Like most of my stuff, really.

Planned fics!

Homestuck

Mallbent: It's in the same universe as Clerkstuck. Come at me, bro. ;)

There will probably be a bunch of elementary and middle-school ficlets for the Jersey-verse. And a longer high school AU story, which has some stuff written for it, but is titleless at the moment.

Bubbles: the sequel to Nameless. Nuff said.

And finally, pictures from the gone world, which will be kind of huge and daunting. There's stuff written for it. I really hope I can do it up right. It would be NICE if someone could do art for it... *sigh* Anyway, I'm taking the God-Tier thing at face value and making the new universe that the kids will be gods over and it might be really interesting! At the very least it will be fun to write... ;)

For The Hunger Games, I have two more stories planned: Mad Girl Love Song and Quell. I'm really hoping that I can do them eventually.

This has been my most productive writing year EVER, just with what I have published online. Most of the stuff is pretty unpolished, I admit. I mostly write the stuff and publish it with a few glances at it. Oh and all this is just since May, which is incredible to me. I'm having loads of fun with it and the comments and love I've gotten have been awesome.

Let's see what I can do in 2012!

So I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] in_the_blue:

Comment to this post, and I will list five things I associate with you, They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your LJ (or just add a reply back to me). Other people (including me) can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

She gave me: Harp, Maine, Homestuck fanfiction, autism, and the sign of Leo )
tree_talking: (nyanko candy store)
And here's my holiday wishlist, cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes:

1. Wiccan or Pagan 'coming to the faith' stories. My husband and I are exploring these paths, and I would really like to know how you came to your faith!

2. A deck of Rider-Waite Tarot cards. I've always wanted to learn how to read them and this is the year!

3. Legos for my son. He LOVES Legos, especially mini-figures.

4. HOMESTUCKS. I am a huge fan of homestuck, and I would love anything about that: t-shirts, art, whatever, even (especially!) stuff that's handmade. Most of my fannish stuff is displayed in my cubicle at work so I love small stuff. :)

5. Broadway items! Anything Broadway/Musical related.

6. Hello Kitty things! I love anything Hello Kitty or Nyan Nyan Nyanko from San-X. Again, small things are lovely.

7. Anything off My amazon wish list.

8. Beginner level small lever Harp sheet Music! I am trying to get back into this and I would love old lesson books, any beginner level stuff you have.

9. Tell the people you care about that you love them before it is too late. Hug them. This is important.

10. Perform some random acts of kindness for people, and tell me about it!

My e-mail is shellebelle93 (at) yahoo (dot) com if you need my mailing address.

A wonderful holiday season to you all! If anyone else posts their wishes, let me know! *hugs*

Yes, this is how I greeted a fair few of my friends when I was in high school. Invariably, the answer was, "not much". :D

Quick updatey thing:

-fic writing proceeds apace. No, forget apace, it's proceeding like a runaway freight train. My brain cannot process all of my ideas. Homestuck is probably one of the most fertile breeding grounds for fanfic I've ever come across. At least for me it is. I'm having an awesome time with it.

-We survived our stupid winter storm. I call it the stupid winter storm because it's ridiculous that such a small amount of wet, heavy snow could do SO much damage. We only lost power for about 22 hours, and for that I'm eternally grateful. Over a week later, there are still some places with no power. Sheesh.

-We are down one income, currently. Hubby is trying to find another second job. In the meantime, it's kinda nice to have him home more often. <3 I wish we didn't need the money so bad.

-Struggling with blood sugars. Send some healthy vibes my way, ok? We're headlong into "candy season" here.

-My spiritual life is starting to smooth out, I think. I wish I could make you all understand what sort of peace I'm experiencing, so much different than living through fundamentalist Christian hell. I want to get back to the curious place I was as a young teenager--I know that sounds "bad" but from ages 14 to about...well, about 30, I deprived myself of true spiritual exploration. I've been climbing up from that but it's difficult to free myself of the sort of bindings I put on my spirit in the name of being "born-again". It's all very difficult to explain.

For well over 20 years, I told myself I could not do certain things that in my heart, I wanted to do, and for well over 20 years, I tried to make myself fit a certain mold that wasn't really 'me'.

I'm not denying myself anymore, and it's incredibly liberating...and freakin' *tiring*!

But good. It's all good.

How is everyone else? <3

Quick rundown, things happening:

My son had a lot of fun at his first ever school dance! The teacher for his autism class went with him and his friend Matthew to keep an eye on them and she said they had a blast.

His birthday party is this weekend and he will be 12 on the 29th. Uuuugh, time goes too fast!

I auditioned for a musical last week! I think I did ok for it being my first audition for ANYTHING since college, but damn, my voice shakes so much when I'm nervous. I wish I could afford to take voice lessons. I feel good about the audition even though I did not get a callback. It won't be my last one, and I'm simply going to have to find more opportunities to sing in front of people. ...and practice acting. I have no idea how to go about that but I'm sure I can find out!

I am writing my blessed fingers off and having the best time ever with Homestuck. It's just...it's the most amazing fount of creative inspiration for fanwork ever, at least for me. It shoved Hunger Games fanfic right off my brainspace, but I'm still picking away at those fics too. They're both fun but in different ways and for very different reasons.

Homestuck, right now, is the thing that is keeping me from begging more anti-anxiety meds off of my doctor. I look at fan art and fanfic and re-read canon and I cackle like Terezi, I swear.

It's not that I'm not stressed, but man, Homestuck does take the edge off. So...thanks, Hussie. You're awesome.

I don't even want to write about the bad shit--because there is some of that--because it's just...not that bad, right now.

My voyage of self-discovery is going well, I think. And also my new philosophy of "I will not tell myself I can't do things" seems to be working out. At 42, it's about time.

So...

My laptop is less than a year old.

And it just died.


Not. Happy.

I hope it can be fixed.


If not, that's a lot of shit lost.

Apparently it is OK to do stuff online now at work. This is a tremendous relief to me.

Not much is happening in my life. We came back last week from a nice little vacation to Knoebels Amusement Park in Elysburg, PA. This is the only amusement park I like...and really, I love it. It's everything an amusement park should be.

I've just downloaded a bunch of stuff from my camera and am in the process of re-naming all the pictures and stuff. When I finish them, I will upload them, and then show them off. ;)

I've been writing a great deal, mostly Hunger Games fanfic, all revolving around Wiress and Beetee. I'm having a wonderful time and I actually finished a lengthy (for me)fic...which I never do. Right now it's all on ff.net, but I'll be updating AO3 with it soon. I find the interface with AO3 sort of annoying with all the html tags and such.

I'm having more fun with this than I had with HP fanfic...which is ironic considering how much PAIN AND SUFFERING is encompassed in these novels... anyway.

I'm also getting more ideas for original fiction too...which always happens shortly before I go to Maine (in five weeks!). But this time, the novel idea takes place *in* Maine proper, on Mount Desert Island. So hooray for a research trip!

Liam is going to turn 12 in October. He's going into 6th grade. MIDDLE SCHOOL. I'm not sure how that happened. Also, he is now terribly concerned with looking 'cool'. How did this happen? *sigh*

All told, I'm doing pretty well, feeling pretty good. Go figure. I hope it lasts a while. :)
