February Fic Recs

I didn’t read as much fic this month, partially because I started working my second job and partially because I was reading books instead. Also writing! I finished 2 fics this month!! Here’s to doubling that number next month! Anyway, alphabetical order as always.

[5 Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 1 In the Flesh]

Keep reading

So today I reached 100k written solely in complete works for the year so far. 100k in two months. That’s 3.5 times better than how much I’d written by this time last year. That’s 1/5th of my goal for the year of 500k written in just two months. I can’t help but be a little amazed and more than a little proud of myself, but also - thank you to everyone who has supported me so far. To everyone who has read one of my works, send me an ask, commented, requested something, cheered me on - that’s what’s gotten me here. And I’m only gonna go further, I guarantee it ᕙ( * •̀ ᗜ •́ * )ᕗ

Killergold rumplestiltskin AU. This has been sitting in my drafts for months, but I couldn’t get the motivation to write the last two chapters, so maybe getting some feedback will motivate me.

Art to go with it here

If ur wondering why Mexico is rioting atm and if ur saying “omg theyre rioting over gas thats so stupid” and blah blah blah.. Just know that the minimum wage in Mexico is $80 Pesos($3 USD) a day.

they earn $3 dollars a day

The gas in Mexico right now is $15.75 Pesos per liter (btw this is the cheapest gas price in Mexico I could find.. $15 pesos is about $0.80 USD) In order to fill up a 4 cylinder car, they spend around $550 Pesos($30 USD)

So lets say someone works at minimum wage for 6 days. They end up earning $480 Pesos a week ($24 USD). Yeah.. no theyre not gonna be able to fill up their tank.

They still need to pay bills, buy groceries, clothes, etc.

The president of Mexico is shitty and ever since he got elected the country has gone to shit and they still have to suffer 2 more years until he is out of office

ALL OF THIS IS A REASON WHY MEXICANS IMMIGRATE TO THE US!!!!!!!! WE COME HERE TO THE US TO WORK AND EARN MORE MONEY TO SUPPORT OUR FAMILIE!!!! THEY DONT PAY ENOUGH IN MEXICO TO FUCKING SURVIVE!!!!!!!!!

Update: yes I accidentally wrote $3 instead of $4. I apologize sincerely for that misinformation.
