I got tagged by both @hawkguyz and @drowningbydegrees to do this one. Thank you lovelies, I’ll brag on myself a little bit here!

On the other hand, I actually only posted six fics in 2017, so narrowing it down to five faves seems a bit silly. I’ll pick three instead.

In no particular order:

all that’s mine I pretty much just wrote comfort fics last year. Gee, I wonder why. No real plans to stop either. YOLO.

in this twilight I wrote this for the the SBB last year. It was my very first bang, and it was a little daunting? I’d never written to a deadline before. There were things about the bang I loved, and things I was less enthused about, but I am pretty happy with this fic. Happy enough that I’m hoping to write more in this universe this year. But that’s another post.

put a ring on it Look, this universe is clearly a thing i like. So here’s another fic from it for my third pic. I… didn’t have much variety last year, it seems. I should work on that. MOAR AUs IN 2018!

Other stuff, because fuck it it’s my blog i will reflect in the way i see fit:

I don’t do art, but I do knit. I’d learned several years ago, but I relearned in 2017, and completed my first two projects. Both scarves. Both the same scarf, in fact, lol. One for me, and one was a gift. But that’s art, and I made that. (Also bought a fuckload of yarn. there’s just so many pretty colors, you guys). I also hope to finish more knitting projects this year.

the other creative thing i did in 2017 was go back to instagram. I got an iphone 8+ pretty much specifically for the camera, so i figured i should start using the damn thing. i try to post at least one picture on my insta every day. it’s a lot of pictures of the sky (because, again: THE COLORS YOU GUYS), and my cat, and yarn, but you’re welcome to follow me if you like that sort of shit. my insta handle is the same as here, and ao3, and pretty much everywhere else.

I also got out some of my tarot decks (i have many) at the end of the year and I’m trying to cultivate more of a relationship with them in the new year.

Ha, I only wrote 6 stories this year, so this is gonna be easy. 2017 was important for me because I really thought I had put creative writing and fanfiction behind me. I stopped writing fanfiction in 2011, and even pulled my stories from the net. Eventually I put them back up but I said I wasn’t gonna write again because honestly,  I think I was clinically depressed. Then in 2014, after TWS came out, I discovered the Stucky fandom and fell in love. Over that time period I got a new job, bought a house, and started taking care of myself.  I was reading Stucky throughout all of this and slowly the itch to write came back. 

1. Deep Cover - This was my first piece of writing in over five years, so it will always be special to me. It’s also a story that centers around an activity that brings me joy- karaoke.  I wrote it for the Stucky Big Bang and it was during the writing of this fic that I met my writing circle/posse. It’s so weird how one fandom experience can introduce you to so many people that end up being your friends and growth partners.

2. The Grievance - I wrote this fic for the 2017 Stucky Scary Bang. My first introduction to novels was Stephen King. I read The Stand and IT when I was 9 years old, so horror has always been one of my favorite genres. I really enjoyed bringing my own brand of horror to life by playing with the WS storyline. It was also a fun challenge to find some light in all of the darkness because you need light to make the darkness mean something. I’m really proud of how scary it turned out. I’m also happy that despite how dark this story is, I found a way to bring the characters some peace at the end. 

3. Infected - I just had a blast writing this shrunklyclunk where Cap gets caught by an IT tech (Bucky), downloading porn (and malware) onto his laptop. I have so many headcanons about Steve and the internet, particularly when it comes to porn. There’s a much longer story here that I want to explore this year. 

4. Possession-  Another Stucky Scary Bang fic, At the heart of this story is a post-CW reconciliation between Steve, Sam, and Tony. I’ve wanted to try my hand at that reconciliation for awhile and I really like how it turned out. I also enjoyed playing with the idea that despite being in cryo, Bucky had the ability to project his spirit halfway across the world to troll Steve, Sam, and Tony, because if he could, he totally would.

5. Now I See - I did this story for my Vision/Wanda square for MCU Kink Bingo. I’m really proud of it. First because Vision and Wanda are kind of a rare ship, so I’m glad I could contribute a story to that tag. But also, the thing about MCU Kink Bingo is that it’s for the entire MCU, so it forced me to stretch and consider voices and behaviors I don’t usually think about. This fic also made me aware of how much I’ve been socialized to think that genitalia defines gender and gender roles. During the development of this fic, I had to come to grips with the fact that I didn’t know as much as I thought I knew and I still have a lot of learning and unlearning to do. Thanks @tetrodotoxinb for the wake-up call.

OK, most of my dash has already done this, so I’m tagging @crockzilla @emphasisonem, @justanotherstonyfan, @mr-barnes-if-ya-nasty, @chibisquirt, @layersofsilences @yetanotherobsessivereader @puddingpong and anyone else who wants to play.

1. Competency Kink is honestly my favorite fic I’ve written, because well, three guesses why and if the first one isn’t “it includes all of my biggest kinks” then I don’t actually have a Then, so that better be your first and only guess 

2. Adventures of the Christmas Cat because I had so much fun writing it, like it was honestly such a joy to write??? I loved the idea, I loved writing it, I love how it turned out, I just Love It 

3.  Picture Day which I actually didn’t care for that much at first, probably cuz I had some trouble writing it, but then the more I’ve reread it the more I’m just like “no okay yeah this is hilarious” and thank gods I have no shame laughing at my own jokes (also I maybe donated re: Fandom Trumps Hate to get a piece or two of artwork for it, stay tuned!)

4. Fuck Magic because A) holy shit THE RESPONSE TO IT <3<3<3<3<3<3 (to all of my fics so far HashtagMthrfkinBLESSED but damn, the response to Fuck Magic, and it’s so weird, it’s body swapping and telepathy and foreskin play, I had no idea how to write any of that and then when I did people LOVED IT), and B) okay most of B is the whole, it’s body swapping, telepathy, foreskin play among other things and I had no idea how to write any of that and then I did thing and I actually ended up “researching” videos of guys with foreskin masturbating for this fic which…. was not something I expected to be doing with my life but No Regrets

5. Death Comes because writing that actually helped me cope with some Real Life Nonsense I was working through emotionally at the moment of writing it, and also Death Comes like Death is arriving and also Death is orgasming getit and as I said, I have no shame laughing at my own jokes, I would be very surprised if anyone laughed at my jokes even half as much as I do. 

Honorable Mention that has no link because it’s not actually on the internet, and is only tangentially a “creative work”, my grandfather who raised me passed away over the summer and I wrote the obituary that we put in the handouts for his service, and I’m really proud of it. 

Not tagging because Tired and I’ve lost track of who’s done Thing and who hasn’t so if you wanna do thing DO THING because you DESERVE SOME BRAGGING TIME yes you yes YOU

you are the ‘c’ of a quadratic function.
ax²+bx+c.
yes, that last factor is you.
now, suppose ‘c’ has any numerical value,
positive or negative,
other than zero
(other than zero because you are alive right now)
and
'ax²’ and 'bx' are the other people;
your parents, your brothers and sisters,
your friends, your lover.
these people disappear when
'x’ is at zero, right?
the function would also equal zero
but,
as i said earlier,
you are the 'c’ of this quadratic function.
in your case, the numerical value of 'c’ is never zero.
you always have a value.
and sometimes,
when 'x’ is at zero,
‘c’ will still have a value and
you will be the only person who is going to be there,
for your own self.
so, take care of yourself.
the art of self care is
very difficult to master at times
and still, you are the 'c’ of this quadratic function.
you will always have a value.

super self indulgent but because it’s my birthday here are some sketches of my DnD character, Sherry! She’s a dwarf paladin, team mom, and will absolutely kick your ass.

please dont let this website make you think its okay to barely sleep at all, its often joked about on here but in reality it can seriously affect your health, i know its not always possible but please try and get a decent amount of sleep whenever you can, and remember to look after yourselves okay thank you~

Respect yourself and your own limitations. One can work hard and passionately push through comfort zones, but when the limit is reached, the limit is reached. Take care of yourself and don’t allow for your beautiful light to burn out.
