(art by selfmadesuperhero, now accepting commissions here: give me your money!!! Seriously great work, super-quick and super-cheap.)
So I'm posting a fic as I write it again for the first time in forever. I've been posting on Tumblr, but thought I'd put it here since a lot of people still might read it even if it's not your current fandom.
I can't believe I'm writing another homeless!epic, but I got attacked by a killer plot-bunny and it wouldn't let me go.
Sink These Roots Deep
Hockey RPS--Tyler Seguin/Jamie Benn
Rated Mature/explicit/adults only
Warnings for: Homeless teens and all the troubles/peril associated. Tyler is 17 in this, which is above the age of consent in Dallas, where it is set. Puppy in distress, but I promise I don't kill the dog.
It’s been a pretty consistent two months. I’m liking what I’m seeing in the mirror, but nothing at all is happening on the scale. I may have gained two lbs, despite not changing my eating at all.
I had a thought this morning, imagining what I’ll look like if my weight keeps not-changing and my bench/squat/curl max keep going up. And I think I like the idea. I’ve never really encouraged my body to muscle up like it wants to. The little bit of water aerobics and a few scattered semesters of weight training both made noticeable differences. I’m curious how extreme the shoulder/waist/hip ratio will go (I have a lot of hips and the shoulders bulk fast). I’m about at my all-time heaviest weight (5’3” and 177 lbs) but I think I could be happy with that, thrilled even, if I can get it shaped like I want.
I think I’m going to keep general strength, cardio fitness, balance training, and flexibility as my goals, and totally remove weight-loss from my plan for now. I’m not going to eat more, but not less either. Up the protein intake and drop the carbs down a little bit. I’m thinking about this almost as a body modification project (albeit one that’ll require constant maintenance to keep it looking like I want).
I’m really glad I took some ‘before’ pictures before starting this, because it’ll be interesting to see how far I can take it.
Having one of those weeks where I'm like "Can I even write? Is anything I do good? Was it ever good?" which I rarely have but just. Yeah.
I do freelance AutoCAD for a living (along with being the stay-at-home-parent) and I got a great new client in the air-conditioning field, but the work is a little more involved than other clients I worked with, so there was a ton to learn. I worked from their office today, which is like--less conducive to brain-breaks than I'm used to. But. I went from having no clue at all, to being able to ask the right questions, to being able to mark up the blueprint as he told me the changes he needed at the end. Hopefully job-after-next, I'll be able to have a sit-down meeting and be able to get everything I need to know to do the whole job.
I feel I left money on the table when talking salary, but he said "If you're happy to work for that, I'm happy to pay you" which was really cool. He was recommended to me by a good mutual friend, so I have no worries about not getting paid when the job is done, and he is in dire need of having a lot of work done, so this looks to be a regular gig.
It was really great to have a day where I didn't have to think of anything but the work in front of me. Cleansing. For me, CAD work is like getting paid for doing puzzles. I wish there was like a "Draft this in the fewest clicks possible" puzzle book. I'd do that recreationally.
Apparently, nobody writes insurance policies that will cover theft or vandalism for a house in rebuild. The builder is not responsible. I'm pricing guard-dog rentals tomorrow. Has anybody ever used this kind of service?? They're insured for $2million but I think that's just if the dog damages things or someone sues for getting bit.
If we put the electrical wiring in and it gets stolen, or the parts of teh central AC that are outside, we will have to take out a loan to cover the loss. If we have to do that twice, we'd be better off to have sold the house as-is and bought a move-in ready place.
We have to tell the apartment complex 60 days in advance before we move out. We can't move forward until we know if it's secure.
I am so fucking stressed. I just want to curl up and write porn all day.
Sami screamed at me for nearly an hour before she went to sleep last night, woke up at 2am and yelled for another hour. I thought bedtimes were getting easier. :(
I just want to eat like 20 cookies and take a nap here on the table at chick fil a.
Okay, so, there's a professional athlete, let's call him Jamie, and he hires a high-end escort, "Tyler." And after a dozen or so appointments and some outside-life events, Jamie says he wants to date. So they try, but Tyler has always kept a very clean compartmentalization of work and not-work and this is messing with his head. The first time they try to make love when it's not a financial arrangement between them, Tyler calls it off, and is like "We can date, or we can fuck, but right now, I can't do both." Has this been done before? Too many times? In an iconic work?

It’s the kind of thing Pat has only seen in niche kink porn, two subs sceneing together. It can’t possibly be something that works, can it?
