Writing my first How I Met Your Mother fanfiction. Think it'll be Ted/Barney. It's for my [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo prompt, 'Post-Apocalyptic'. Yeah, I know, random.

Also got into a massive row with my brother's new mother-in-law. And I mean new. He got married last weekend and though she added me as a friend on FB, I hadn't actually spoken to her yet. Then she attacked my brother's anti-SOPA post, essentially calling him an immature thief. I argued with that retarded bigot (and trust me, that description isn't because of her stance on this issue) until my brother's new wife told everyone they were being disrespectful and we should know better than to debate the law.

I was so angry I was shaking. The joke is, I was perfectly objective and rational throughout, but the way they responded (caps and inaccurate rants about how dangerous pirates are to the youth of today) I might as well have made it personal to get some fun out of it. At one point the woman told me not to whine because there was no such thing as freedom. Wtf.

My depression is not helped by my mother phoning on my day off to remind me I'm a disappointment to my father.

AKA: No writing done today.

Got out of work, breathed in the scent of freedom hanging over the next two days, thought about all the fic I was going to write...

Phone-call from mum. She has a 6500 word essay on nursing due in a week. A redo of one she failed. If she fails it again she fails her degree. And she wants me to proofread it. I PROOF-READ IT LAST TIME AND IT DIDN'T FUCKING HELP, DID IT!?! AND IT TOOK ME SO LONG!

My mum is a great nurse. She also can't write worth a damn. She also didn't start a new version of the essay from scratch, but has just gone through injecting random trivia into a dead essay.

If she fails her degree she'll cry. Then I'll cry. I'm frantically trying to reassure her over the phone that she's not thick. And I've explained that I can't help. I'd write the damn thing for her if I could, but I can't. I'm not a nurse. So she's worried and she's telling me not to worry, but what can I do? Seems like worrying is the only thing I can do. That and spend the next two days reading through a badly-written tedious nursing essay making superficial adjustments that make no real significant improvement to an essay that sucks.

Ok. First off, what do Americans call it when someone's a runner at school or college? On the track team? Does that make sense? It's for a fic I'm writing, I forget which (there are so many and I suspect it's one I started in the past few days, which have been affected greatly by my insomnia). It's just a minor, passing, inconsequential detail, but when I don't know something I like to find out rather than detour round the ignorance.

I'm in a much better mood today for a few reasons. 1. Some pretty fic on the f-list to read at boring work. :D 2. Got sent home early because it was so dead I was laying on the floor doing nothing and nobody noticed! Someone asked if I was okay as they stepped over me, that's about it. 3. Me and [livejournal.com profile] johncoxon went to see 'Limitless' and it was fantastic! Spoiler for something awesome ) I really enjoyed it plus I now have a Ben and Jerry's/Popcorn/2 cans of coke in one hour high going on. Which is a problem, as I must bed in 40 mins or so because...

I'm going to Wales for a week tomorrow. I will still be writing, most likely on a notepad as my little sister devours season four of SPN, which I am taking home for her. But obviously posting will be less reliable as I will be sharing a laptop with my family and trying to spend time with them as after this it will be August before I can see them again. I've shoved everything on a memory key though and I'll have a couple of long train journeys on which to occupy myself...

Fic, notes, etc under cut for sake of brevity )

Merry Xmas y'all! Hope you've enjoyed the Advent and have a wonderful day. We're already having board games in the Sarky household, with the usual wit and wonder that results:

Sister of Sarky: "I hate you."
Sarky: "Hey, it's not my fault you're stupid."
Brother of Sarky: "Oh, you're allowed to say that but I'm not allowed to tell mum she's retarded?"
Mum of Sarky: "Oi! Anyway, back to the game... A periscope is a telescope, right?"
Brother of Sarky: "Oh, I see, I'm not allowed to say it because the truth hurts..."

And the QI Christmas special was too funny. Daniel Radcliffe was surprisingly knowledgeable and sweet!

Anyway. You all love me for one thing :P My unearthly beauty Fanfic. Here you go.

1. Fic is very slow at the moment due to my lack of computer. My flatmate doesn't actually have any typing programs on his computer, having got rid of them to make more space for games XD So I'm thinking about jotting bits onto paper then typing them up into a private LJ entry until there's enough for people to read...

2. My Grandad George died on Valentine's Day. I had been very worried about him, and I guess I was right to be.

While I'm drunk and it's easier, I'm going to let my f-list know that my nanny died on Wednesday.

I didn't manage the letter in time.
