Good news (for a study spot): there is a coffee shop at the hospital.  Bad news (for my stomach, bladder, and wallet): there is a coffee shop at the hospital.  

I decided that if I buy anything there, I must stay to study to justify the purchase.  

Want that iced soy latte?  Well, you better study to earn it!  

The following is painful to think or write about.

I bought a couple of Step 2 CS books months ago.  Have I opened them?  Nope.  Do I want to?  Nope.  

Step 2 CS = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ + aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh

I keep putting if off, but I need to face reality.  I must take it by May 2017 to receiving the passing score before I apply for the Match fall of next year.  As an IMG, I should pass all parts of the USMLE and even better, have my ECFMG before sending in my application.  

I will NOT be a high failure (or a low passer).

So, I am trying to use my love for soy lattes as motivation to study.  

End of painful message.  Carry on.

~1,500 words / Rated T / from the beginning

Killian has a soft spot for blondes in yellow rain coats and cut-off jean shorts. Emma has a soft spot for punching country boys with dirty mouths. Ruby thinks they’re both idiots.

Ruby was a feisty six year old the first time she bit Killian on the playground at Storybrooke Elementary School. He had rudely interrupted a thrilling game of Duck, Duck, Goose between a gaggle of first graders with an ill timed soccer ball to the back of Ruby’s head.

(It was the first of many confrontations between the two that year. Nearly all of them ended with Ruby drawing blood. They’d kind of been attached at the hip ever since.)

Now as she watched the infuriating way he grabbed her drink and took a generous sip, she felt that long dormant desire rise up again.

“My hand’s burnin’ somethin’ fierce right now, Jones,” Ruby countered as she snatched her drink back from Killian’s grasp. “Get your own.”

Killian just laughed as he signaled the bartender.

This was a typical Friday night for the pair, saddled up to the only real bar in town with highball glasses filled with dark, sticky rum.   

Killian clinked his freshly filled tumbler with Ruby’s and smiled, “Keep your hands to yourself, Red.”

Ruby bit her lip to keep from laughing. Bastard. “It’s not nice to keep a lady waiting, you know.”

“What lady?”

Emma wasn’t prepared for the whirlwind of excitement and activity when she and Killian came back into the Storybrooke port. Everyone was waiting at the docks because they knew what Killian’s purpose in taking her away for the past twenty-four hours had been.  And if one person knew then it was a matter of time before the rest of the town knew what was going on.

Emma could see her parents and Henry standing on the docks. Regina was holding Riley in her arms and Snow had Neal balanced on her hip. Killian grinned at her from the helm and guided them expertly into the Jolly’s berth. Together they threw the lines to two dockworkers waiting with the crowd and secured the ship. As they were about to disembark Killian scooped her up and carried her off the ship. People shouted with excitement their congratulations on their engagement, even though they were technically married, no one else knew that. She knew that is why Killian decided to carry her off the ship bridal style.

“Killian, set me down,” she demanded. “You’re going to give us away.”

“As you wish, my darling wife,” he whispered into her ear as he gently set her down. He kissed her cheek and she shivered. She still couldn’t believe they were married. After their private exchange of vows; they proceeded to make love all over the Jolly Roger until they had finally fallen asleep in each other’s arms. With everything they had gone through in the last few months, she hadn’t wished to waste their quiet moment and once he had asked she wanted nothing more than to marry him. It had been wonderful but now that they were back, for all anyone else would know, they were simply engaged.

What the USMLE Step 2 CS Protects
In a recent article entitled
By in-Training

“Let’s do a final tally for the involved parties: test administrators receive millions of dollars each year, lenders take even more profit from medical student debt, hotels in five major U.S. cities and the airlines receive a little extra business, medical students lose money and time and the general population gets more jaded and indebted physicians.”

Deland Weyrauch at University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences sheds some light on the subject of the USMLE Step 2 CS.

Hey my CS peeps

what if I said on the 31st I’ll have a book out that will give you your princess/pirate fix to get through those last few weeks without Captain Swan?

Because I do. I have a book coming out on the 31st about a smart and sassy princess who arranges her own kidnapping to get out of a deal her parents made with a fairy… and she hires a snarky, charming smuggler (ofc with a dark and troubled past) to do the job.

I know we all love our badass princesses and loveable rogues here. Honestly it’s my favorite relationship trope of all time (thanks Han/Leia and Anya/Dmitri for being such formative influences), and that’s why I wanted the  first book I published to be that very trope. And now it shall be.

So yes, 31st, and I’ll have a new pirate/princess fix for everyone

Time upon Once, sneak peek

Regina turned around and looked at him, “I have to ask… Is there a mother?”

Killian grabbed the glass that Regina handed him, swallowing slowly. “Well, clearly there was one,” he said with a little irony, stating the obvious.

“Do I need to worry about her?” Regina pressed.

Rio 2016 #2

The 2nd of my Captain Swan Olympics AUs, you can find the first (entirely unrelated) AU here.

In which Emma and Killian both have tickets to watch the tennis at the Olympics, and what better way to up the enjoyment of a match than with a bet?

“Watch it asshole!” “Sorry didn’t mean to knock you there love”

Emma was so done with the crowds of people swarming around her. Yes, she was excited to actually be at the actual Olympics but that didn’t mean she had to enjoy all the awkward moments of rubbing up against people she didn’t know. And not in the good way.

Like this one for example. She’d been innocently awaiting Mary Margaret’s return from the toilets when some dickhead crashed into her, sending her bag flying.

“Feisty one are you?” the dick chuckled in an irritatingly intriguing British accent. She rolled her eyes at his attempt at flirting.

“I don’t appreciate anyone knocking me down is all”.

They both reached down to retrieve her bag, nearly butting heads in the process. He reached it first and as she straightened up she found herself looking at a truly stunning specimen of a man. He had perfectly tousled dark hair, a perfectly chiseled jaw and piercing blue eyes. Fuck.
