I think maybe I bit off more than I can chew as I have just claimed now 6 for the December Advent. What in the world am I thinking?
And so, I shall be honest. Do not expect a fic every day in December here. It’s just not going to happen. I will do my best to do MWF. If I am lucky. I know you guys will be okay with whatever I can do, just wanted to give fair warning!
Sitting here falling asleep at my lunch…Who Knows Why
My plan is, when I have the energy, to work on the ending of I Dream of Jim. I’d like to get some more stuff concluded in the very near future. This promises to be a super busy writing season coming up and I will feel better having a couple more done. Before I get into more WIPS that I want to coming up, I need to end those. I actually have less WIPS going now than I have had in years.
But I Dream of Jim and Catch a Falling Star are headed out of the rotation soon. And now that I have 4 chapters done on A Heart Needs a Second Chance, I feel I can get something else done.
Likely not until Sunday though with the family thing tomorrow.
I have started my fall decorating though not everything will be out for another or week or so.
I think I may have done my last Overt Time hour on Wednesday. They talked about it in today’s work meeting and I do believe they might actually transfer the work out this time.
Supposed to drop down to 87 or so tomorrow which believe me is a big improvement!
Throw something together to post on AO3 for Star Trek Day? To be honest I forgot it was even the 8th of September until J reminded me. Too much on my mind. It would be SHORT obviously as I have very little time to do it both brain-wise and time wise as it’s tomorrow.
If I can make it to Saturday it’s supposed to be down to 83. I can’t wait. That seems so cool now. LOL
Had to block someone else on AO3. This person felt the need to tell me my stories made no sense and also that I should be tagging my stories for her triggers. So yep, blocked. I just don’t get why people are like that but whatever.
I expect to work over time again starting tomorrow. I am crossing my fingers this might be the end of it. We will see. I have gotten a good start on chapter 3 of A Heart Needs a Second Chance.
So glad to be home! I had a great time. But it took 7 hours to get home due to construction issue on the freeway. I am SOOOOO exhausted.
Anson M is an asshole. That’s Pike in the new shows. Never have I missed Bruce Greenwood so much. People (me included) paid $100 for a photo with him. They paid $200 for a photo with him and Rebecca and $200 for a photo with Ethan and him. They paid $480 for a group photo with the whole cast that was there. He wore a mask. We all had to be vaxxed or tested in order to be there. We wore masks all through the convention except for our photo ops. He had the option of plexiglass between him and the rifraff. Several chose this including Sonequa. This was fine. But nope, not him. He ruined every single picture a fan took with him. And he was stiff as a damn statue. He was THE ONLY ONE who did this at the entire convention, Ladies and gentlemen we have our new asshole for the fandom. Sorry but that’s my assessment. Edited to add: And yes, sure, he has every right to decide to wear a mask. And I have every right to be informed so that I can make the decision whether I want to pay $100 for someone no one would ever recognize. Look there is a NEW Official Star Trek Convention. It began this year in Chicago and is co-sponsored by CBS/VIACOM. They charged $80 for Anson not $100 and declared up front he would wear a mask. They did the same with Wil Wheaton. Fair enough. Fans there could decide. But I sure as hell wouldn’t pay a dime for a masked actor no one would known from the Lone Ranger. So yes it goes back to the greed Of Creation. But I still think he could have chosen plexiglass instead of ruining hundreds of pictures
Ethan P is a great guy. He’s Spock in the new shows. Friendly, funny and took free photos in the vendors room with fans that he was not supposed to do as you are supposed to “pay” so Creation Entertainment makes boatloads of money off you. What a great example for the fandom. He was great.
Walter K was a sweetheart. 85 and he greeted fans warmly and hugged them and petted dogs.
Doug Jones is also a sweetheart. Sonequa used the plexiglass but Doug did not in the same photo. Michael and Saru in Discovery (he’s famous for other things too like Hocus Pocus). So friendly and sweet and welcoming. Hugged everyone. Great humor. So so good.
Creation Entertainment are thieves. They rip off us fans left and right. They lost the Star Trek license and the right to call it the “Official” convention and it shows. So disorganized. And the guy who runs it is as arrogant as can be. I loathe him.
Vegas is still loads of fun but ridiculously expensive.
I love Star Trek. All of it. I came back with a renewed enthusiasm for all of it and I can’t wait to watch it all again. Wow. And all the fans there were absolute treasures this time. We met a guy with his 16 year old daughter. They flew out for one day as they could only get a one day admission as the rest had sold out. They were dressed from SNW and he even had his hair done like Pike. He looked more like Anson than Anson did lol. She was so cute. She wanted to meet Denise Crosby but she was too shy so she took a secret picture of her. The minute we got there wearing our Trek shirts people came to us and asked, Hey, do you know where we register? It was one big happy family and I hadn’t felt that at other conventions, so that was wonderful.
It’s going to be 100s here this week and just ugh! LOL
