I survived somehow!

Insane-Family-Visiting-Time is coming to a close. I'm still in Ontario until the 14th, but it's mainly just me an my mum now, so I have a little more free-time on my hands. (Meaning that now when I stay up until 3am on the internet, it's because I'm an idiot, not because midnight-3am is the only time of day that I can get to my computer).

Of course, immediately upon returning to Vancouver on the 14th, Insane-International-SPN-Fan-Friends-Visiting-Time begins... as people start trickling into town for VanCon.

In other news though, I don't have a job at the moment. As you can imagine, this is both a good and a bad thing. Good, because I will have more time for writing. Bad, because I need money to buy food and shelter and I need a job to get money. That being said, this little break in work availability might be temporary, so I'm not panicking too early and I'm just enjoying this impromptu vacation.

Anyway, this is all to say that hopefully I'll actually have time to write a bit soon... I'm torn as to what I want to work on first. I have an idea for an extremely sappy Captain America fic... I kind of want to write about Arthur and Merlin again too for some reason (I probably won't, but I WANT to)... I had an idea for an original short-story and was going to submit it to a call for submissions, but I've missed the deadline on that because of being too busy with family, so yeah, I guess I'll put that on the back burner... and then there's the next installment of the demented'verse.

For the demented'verse, as most of you know, I'm going to be going "slight-AU" so that I can a)fit Harry&crew into the SPN story, and b)save characters that died in SPN because I like them. Unfortunately, I don't think I can save Benny - not because you guys haven't offered me suggestions (blood-replenishing potions/pills, and willing blood-slaves etc...), but because he honestly just doesn't fit into the story that I think I want to tell - so the whole Benny-arc will be outside whatever SPN/HP story I concoct and therefore doesn't need to be altered in the slightest... which means that if I DID alter it, it'd be rather shoe-horned in. Blah, anyway, we'll see, I suppose. (Also, I think Benny's main problem was depression caused by loneliness and PTSD... and those aren't things I can fix with magic.)

Anyway, just wanted to give you guys a brief update!

I haven't had time to check out all the stuff from SDCC yet, but I did see the NerdHQ panel and that was fun - and I saw the little sneak-peak they showed, and that looked interesting.... so, yeah, fun times!

How's it going with you?

Good to have you back! I hope you find the best job as soon as you are ready to start working!

My staycation ended a week ago. I've been working for 5 days and am, for all intents and purposes, dead now :((( Watermelon and rum granita makes things bearable though.

I hope work gets easier - but until then, I'm glad you have the watermelon and rum granita! ;)

Glad to hear you had a good time with the family. I bet it will be bittersweet leaving.

VanCon goers will start descending upon your city soon. Hard to believe that I will be there in two weeks times. I am SO not ready. It should be a fun one though. I'm just looking forward to getting away from the stress and pressure here at home. One week of no responsibility. I can hardly wait.

Yay! and Boo! for having more time. Hopefully you will be able to figure out work situation without too much hassle. Good luck.

Good to hear from you again.
