bring back memories

I’m gonna talk about that one softball mabel au because not only is it good and pure, but it also brings back many fond memories:

-she would totally, without a single doubt, do that thing where she gets her name spray-painted onto her batting helmet in many colors with flowers and rainbows around it

-she loves leading the cheers in the dugout. Don’t tell me she wouldn’t

-she’s a very ambitious base runner. The coach tells her to hold back, but if she’s feeling it, you bet she’s gonna sprint to the next base. She rarely gets tagged out when she does it, and the coach starts to trust her more than they trust themself.

-she plays second base ok

-Mabel loves the little signals the coach does to tell her what to do when she’s up at bat (ex. touch to the hat = bunt) because she finally sees it as a code that only she knows but Dipper doesn’t. She holds it over his head any chance she gets.

-you know those practices where the team takes a field trip to the batting cages? Yeah she loves those

-she is so supportive. She’s so great at rallying the team up for big games (even small ones). If a teammate’s not feeling their best she’ll give them a little pep talk in the dugout and send em off with a hug and a pat on the back

-she’s a quick little bugger

-i remember when I was younger one of my coaches would name the “player of the game” after each game. Mabel would stand in front of her team and name off what great things each and every one of her teammates did that game. She wants everyone to feel happy with their performance.

-she is smol but fierce

-she’s that batter that the opposing team fears whenever they’re on defense

-SHE LOVES TO SLIDE. Even if she doesn’t need to, she slides onto that base dammit

-her family is the most obnoxious family in the stands. They scream and yell and cheer her on constantly. Also during games they buy her candy from the nearby snackbars and push it to her through the holes in the dugout’s chain link fence

-when they’re in the dugout eating sunflower seeds Mabel and her teammates playfully spit sunflower seed shells at eachother. It’s gross but let them have their fun

My Year of MFMM – 2016

Since MFMM S3 finished airing in Australia on 26-Jun-2015, the loyal fans continue to watch (and rewatch) the three seasons via other media outlets (Netflix, Acorn, PBS, etc.). Fully aware of the popularity of the show worldwide, Every Cloud Productions announced the plan to bring Miss Fisher to the big screen. Although the outlook for S4 is bleak at the moment, the anticipation of the feature film(s) has kept the Phandom going through 2016.

As much as I hate to admit it, the Phandom has dwindled since the show went on hiatus. New fans still find their way to us, but we are losing more than we retain. However, this doesn’t mean that we had less fun. I am currently compiling the index for my 2016 Tumblr posts, and it brings back so many fond memories. With the #MissFisherCon2017 in Las Vegas under preparation (link here) and the possibility of the MFMM movie to start filming soon (link here), I am looking forward to a more exciting year in 2017.

On a personal note, in July I celebrated the milestone of 800 followers on Tumblr and 500 on Instagram. The numbers have increased since then (to 990 and 596, respectively), and I hope the trend will continue. Also, I am honored that @missfisher_official on Instagram Liked 45 of my posts and regrammed 4 of them! There are really no words to describe my excitement and gratitude. In addition, a number of my Instagram posts received Likes and/or notes from @ashleighlillian, @hugojohnstoneburt, @tammy__macintosh, @anthony_sharpe, and @deedeesmart. I am not ashamed to admit that each time it happened, I was giddy for days. To preserve that happy feelings so that I can savor them again and again, I plan on outlining the details in a separate post.

I would also like to express my gratitude toward a few dear friends. @izzyandlouie and @ladygrayluvs, you two ladies worked out a clever plan to surprise me with a present from Australia. The present itself is definitely precious, but the way you had it delivered made it extra special. In addition, I am now a proud owner of a MFMM Costume Exhibition S3 catalog thanks to @rithebard for letting me purchase her extra copy. Last but not least, @mathiesonla88, thank you for gifting me the dishtowel with the fox motif. It is so beautiful that I can’t bring myself to actually use it to dry the dishes!

There you have it, my year of MFMM 2016. I hope next year this time, when I am summarizing my year of MFMM 2017, there will be more highlights to celebrate, including the new movie!

********************

p.s. The top left photo of Miss Fisher, Jack, Dot, and Hugh is from my post on 19-Jun-2016 (link here). I was quite pleased with myself after creating it, but it only received 12 Likes on Tumblr, one of the lowest numbers ever. @firesign23 said that she loved it, which made me really happy. It fared much better on Instagram, though, receiving respectable 84 Likes (link here). I am including it here to remind myself that there is no way to predict how the readers would receive a post, so I should always stay the course to post what I have planned without worrying about the trend or popularity.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
