Thank goodness these don't have to be consecutive days - I suspect it will take me a year to reach 100. :-P

Happy pictures inside )

I've been enjoying the 100 Days of Happy posts and I've finally decided to attempt to join the fun. Thinking of what makes me happy often leaves me disgruntled by my physical limitations, but focusing on the positive should ultimately be a good thing.

Today's happy?

Organic waffles spread with Nutella washed down with chocolate truffle flavored coffee. Yum! The sugar and caffeine should power me through my weekly icon-making for mcshep_icontest and sga_icontest - I've entered weekly for years now. Anyone can vote in those comms (they post the entries Monday/Tuesday every week).

Another happy?




I've been nominated at No Rest For The Wicked Awards in the following categories:


Title: That Which Waits To Be Discovered
Fandom/Pairing: SGA Ronon Dex/Jennifer Keller
Word Count: 12546
URL: http://archiveofourown.org/works/859179
Categories: Partners in Crime (best het), Dream a Little Dream of Me (best romance/fluff)

Nominations List: http://wicked-awards.livejournal.com/47258.html

Although that story isn't McShep, it's still in my top ten for AO3 kudos. It always makes me smile when I get another kudo on it because I stepped outside my comfort zone to write it.

A final happy for today?

Gary is off wandering on his motorcycle, so the puppies are cuddling next to me as I watch Star Trek: Vogager on Netflix, yet another show I've never watched before. The difficulty of balancing my Bamboo tablet is offset by Molly's warmth smooshed under my arm. I'll manage as I always do. :-D
danceswithgary: (McShep - Buddy Love)
I am actually getting out of the house - even out of my yard - to play this. Gary and I pack up the dogs and drive to the village so we can safely walk around to Pokestops and take advantage of lures when they appear. We don't actually fight, just enjoy the collecting aspect, as well as finding interesting places/memorial we'd never noticed before. It is so great to see so many others out and about and the dogs are loving the chance for extra sniffing. It's even worth the cold I managed to catch as I rejoined the world outside of my safety zone. I just wish it was a Pokemon I could transfer to the Professor for candy instead of the sniffling/coughing/bleary-eyed reality. ;-D

We've also been gardening - another of Gary's ploys to get me off the couch and outside. I have a video of the results so far at https://youtu.be/SDpp_Bc75xw if you'd like to see.

Molly and Tessa really enjoy the extra time they get outside with us.

When I'm not playing Pokemon Go, I am building DWGville in SimCity BuildIt, fighting off invasions in SkyForge, and battling comic book villains in DC Universe Online, all while watching various and sundry Netflix offerings. It's great pain management (need more input) but means there's not a lot of writing/artwork going on. I open and close files in fits and starts, but it's just not happening. *shrug*

I have been enjoying the 100 Days of Happy entries appearing on my flist and am considering joining in. Perhaps it'll nudge me to be creative. Maybe. We'll see.

I'm writing a Miko-centric story and I have been researching everything, but I could use a beta who can correct my more egregious errors. I could even use someone to bounce sections off. I'm hoping to have something readable in a few weeks, needing to have beta and corrections complete for latest possible post on April 14th.

Anyone interested? I can pay with icons and artwork of your choice.
danceswithgary: (McShep - Xmas)
I love what my daughter gave me for Christmas. She knows that all too often I run out of spoons, so she bought me a sonic spork!

Spoon

*smishes her so much*

PS. My next favorite present I gave to myself - finishing and posting a 13000 word McShep AU. I actually managed to write every day for almost 6 weeks. I'm hoping to continue the trend.


Happy Holidays!
danceswithgary: (McShep - Xmas)
Title: Universal Gravitation (Metaphorically Speaking)
Author: danceswithgary
Recipient: squidgiepdx
Pairing: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard, Daniel Jackson/Rodney McKay (past)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~13000
Disclaimer: SGA characters are not mine, more's the pity. Not a medical professional, I only play one on the internet.
Warnings: Potential consent issues/triggers. I started this as a lighthearted romance but, as I researched physical therapy, I was reminded there were questions of ethical conduct that needed to be addressed when a medical professional becomes involved with a patient, even a former patient. I'm hoping some magical hand-waving will be excused to allow romance a chance.
Author's Notes: Present day "Never a Stargate" AU suggested by http://community.livejournal.com/mcsheplets/202159.html?thread=2176175%23t2176175. Oh, and because of my fuzzy-headed research, please pretend along with me that Stanford's mascot isn't a tree. *facepalm* See the end for more notes.
Summary: It was all Newton's fault.

Universal Gravitation (Metaphorically Speaking) )
danceswithgary: (John - Help)
...you reach down to scritch your adorable dog's ears and come back with a handful of 'wtf did you roll in now?' Yes, it's that time of year when the deer wander thru our yard eating the fallen crab apples and ornamental pears - leaving the dogs nauseatingly odoriferous presents in return.

Of course, Gary had just driven away to have lunch with some friends, so guess who was stuck bathing two dogs. Unfortunately, I couldn't just leave them outside until he got back - they wouldn't understand why they'd been exiled and it's too cold to sit outside with them. *sigh* I was considering new collars, but realized I'd have to wrestle the tags off anyway, so I held my breath and washed them too.

I called Gary to let him know the rest of the mess - including the wet towels on the bathroom floor - is his to take care of and that going to the 'Y' to exercise after lunch probably wasn't a good idea.

There's a reason I take the dogs to a groomer every six weeks. I think I just used some of my spoons for next week. I certainly don't have any left for today and likely none for tomorrow. Guess it's a good thing daughter's not coming home for the holiday and we had nothing special planned. Right now, I'm thankful for clean dogs. :-P

Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

A while back [personal profile] kate posted her statistics from AO3. Sitting here a wee bit bored because my most recent time waster was downloading and I'm mulling over the next scene in my sga_santa story, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Warning: Serving a little whine with those stats )

My daughter just called from DragonCon where she had a lovely conversation with David Hewlett. She took two pieces of my art with her, one for him to sign and one for him to keep if he'd like - no pressure.

The one he signed (I'll get the signed one in the mail after she returns)

The one he kept (Dragon! DragonCon!)

In addition, he asked if I had a website where he could check out other pieces (I managed to send an unsigned piece I did for sgareversebang - doh!). Daughter stammered a bit and said I also did McShep pieces and he smiled and said he understood, but still pressed for more info especially after she mentioned my disability. He's currently working on a documentary about disabled people needing a brain/mech interface to allow them more freedom (sic) and is very interested in how the internet facilitates interaction for disabled people who used to languish in isolation. He ended up giving daughter his email address so she could send links to my less slashy pieces. Really, I do have those. *grin*

She was so excited and said he was the best celebrity she's ever met!

So cool.

Also reminds me I have a huge post of art and icons to do when I can summon the energy.
danceswithgary: (Default)
I make a post about posting more, then I disappear again. *rolls eyes*

There's a good reason, really. I'm completely absorbed in a new game called SkyForge. It keeps me so well-occupied that it took me 10 days to figure out why my pain had spiraled so out-of-control that I was downing entirely too many of the opiates I try to avoid. I tend to withdraw even more when that happens and my depression was taking over when I discovered I'd loaded my pillboxes wrong, halving my dosage of Wellbutrin. Doh!

A week later and I'm slowly returning to a more reasonable level of pain and fatigue.

Gary is also hanging around for a while, after being away most of the summer on motorcycle trips and in LA with his family. Now he's buzzing about taking care of all of the chores he put off. Perhaps he'll also finally manage to sell one of his THREE motorcycles. He promised he would when I said he could get the latest one for back road biking in the wilds of Canada

Sometimes I think there's a sign above my head flashing PUSHOVER.

It's more like I live vicariously through him and his travels and can't deny him his fun just because I can't anymore.

He does bring back great photos. :-D
