Hi!

I cannot believe it’s been almost a year. Wow. How the hell did that happen? I guess I really don’t come to LJ any more. I do still hang out on AO3 though and a bit on Tumblr. I’ve become a much more visual person since I started hanging out on Tumblr. There is just some gorgeous stuff being posted *all* the time! You should really check it out. Prepare to be dazzled! And have time slip away from you. You’ll look up and it will be *hours* later.

Still primarily Teen Wolf focused, still very much a Sterek fan. And Avengers as well. Haven’t really picked up any new fandoms though I will read a good Kane/Toews fic. I’ve never seen a hockey game or even watched an interview with them. I think I followed a link for a favorite author somewhere, I dunno. Now I click on a link for them if the story sounds good. I occasionally explore some of the stories being posted on AO3 in a previous fandom, but not too often.

I signed up to do the mini_wrimo thing again this year. Really hope to do better this year than last. I fell into a black hole at work and didn’t come back out till this past June with the go live of the new system at work.

I have been super busy lately. We just had a birthday for my three youngest, so had a nice dinner and cake for each one on their day. Then we had a huge party for all three of them, with lots of food, cake, 3 piñatas, and lots and lots of candy. And lots of kids and their parents running around. It was nice though. A lot of work before and a lot of work after, but totally fun. It was really nice to see everyone who came. The kids are already looking forward to next year. The hubby is too!

I have been very busy at work. We just went through a huge transition to a brand new system, which included new hardware and new software for the entire hospital and clinics. It only took two years of long days and late nights. Still trying to catch up, actually. We also got reassigned to new areas of support so lots of learning going on and meeting new people. It’s been a little challenging which is good; it keeps life interesting. We support computers, fax machines, copiers, scanners, phones, tablets, and now we support Macs as well as Windows PC so I’m always learning, whether or not I want to.

I also just finished taking a college class for a certification for work. Now I just have to take the test so I can show that I actually learned something. I keep meaning to do the studying, but can’t find the time. I do have to study though because I promised the hubby I’d get a certificate for his company next. I am planning to go to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill next year so I intend to finish the certificates this year so I can concentrate on that next year.

I have lost 45 lbs so far. Yay me! \o/\o/\o/ The doctor told me that with my genetic history I was going to be diabetic so I had to lose weight. I've been working on it since the beginning of the year. I am using Nutrisystem and I'm walking everywhere. I'm still working to see where I end up. I would rather be on a diet for a while and not for the rest of my life, you know.

So I’m always running. With 4 kids at home now, – CI returned home during the summer to return to school ; JS is still in Ashville with the grandbaby [who is now 5 years old (How is that even possible? wow!)] – helping with homework, work, and studying, and doing company stuff for the hubby while he’s gone during the week, life is a little crazy. Crazy but good.

“There’s a second line. My God, Jackson, there’s a second line. I’m pregnant.”

“Take a breath, Lydia. It will be ok.”

“What am I going to do?”

“What we are going to do is get married. The wedding’s already scheduled for next month. We’ll still move to Cambridge.”

“It’s not what we planned.”

“It’s not going to be exactly what we planned, but it’s going to be all right.”

“But how will it work?”

“It won’t be easy, but we’ll make it work. Together. We’ll be a family. We’re going to get our happy ending.”

“Are we?”

“Yes, we are.”

Donna can’t help feeling guilty. She and Rachel have been friends for years. She knows Mike’s secret and why he won’t tell Rachel. The possibility of Rachel telling is real, either by accident or in a fit of rage after Mike breaks her heart. Because he will. The way that he looks at Harvey when he thinks nobody is watching gives him away. When Harvey finally decides to stop pretending he’s not looking back just as much will be the end of MikeandRachel.

The only thing that she can do is be there for Rachel. “Wanna go get a drink?”

“Show me how, I don’t know, I want…”

Derek stopped Stiles’ babble with a gentle nip to his lower lip. “What do you want?”

Taking a deep breath, Stiles started speaking again, “I’ve never done this before. I want to do it right.”

With a press of his lips against the corner of Stiles’ mouth, Derek whispered, “there isn’t a right or a wrong way. It’s about what feels good. Does this feel good?”

Derek licked his way into Stiles’ mouth, catching Stiles’ moans on his tongue.

Letting his head fall back, trying to catch his breath, Stiles gasped, “Yes.”

Teen Wolf

Since I don't have to pay $140 a week in daycare any more \o/\o/ I had a little more discretionary income this month. I decided to spend some to treat myself. I donated some to the Obama campaign by buying some t-shirts and buttons and got some t-shirts from cafepress as well. I actually may have gone a little overboard at cafepress because I got one for me, the hubby, and the kids. We are all going to be walking billboards for the president. =D

Another treat I got was some tea. The kids and I will go through a tea-drinking phase and we'll stock up on some good tea. This time, I found fandom-related tea! It was so cool. I don't really remember how I found it. I clicked on a link and then clicked on another and I stumbled across adagio tea. There were some fandom signature blends and I found a Teen Wolf version! Several, actually. I decided to try the following and got a 3oz pouch of each of them:

Sour Wolf
Snark Nerdy to Me
Ginger Fabulous
Everybody's Tea
Tea(se)

I couldn't resist with names like that. I also thought it was adorable that since some the characters featured were in 'ships with other characters, there was a discount for getting the teas together. The artwork was also very cute. I just got them last night. I tried the Lydia ginger/peach tea and it was scrumptious! Of course, I had to open the others and they all smelled soooo good! I can't wait to try the rest. Especially the Tea(se), the Derek/Stiles one because that one smelled *delicious*!

The State of Me

Wow. I knew it had been a while since I did a real update, but had no idea it was since June. When I posted about my yahoo mail going nuts, I just used an app. I took a look today. June 21st! Ok, lots of things happened and I cannot remember any of them. Other than KS started kindergarten. Her birthday is 11 days after the cut off date in NC so I had to jump through so many damn hoops and bend over backwards and do a few things that were "a bit not good". But! It was totally worth it because she is in school and looooves it.

Other than that, things are pretty much the same. Go home, go to work, go home, go to work... With a few trips to catechism class for the boys and to Walmart and the movies - even though I am limited to watching PG-13 because of the kids, I have gone to the movies a lot; KS is old enough to start sitting through an entire movie with minimal fuss now - thrown in there. The hubby still works out of town during the week so doing the single mom thing still. Both JC and CI live in Asheville now so have only the 3 youngest. All three are a handful individually, together they're making me go gray. Literally. Every day I find more gray hair, I swear. I'm going to end up looking like Jamie Lee Curtis one day. Well, maybe not quite like her. Though I wouldn't mind it one bit. I think she is one sexy woman.

I have been keeping myself busy. I don't run around on LJ ever; I really do mean ever. I get overwhelmed by the idea of how out of touch and out of the loop I am so I don't look. I have never run around on DW because I don't know where to go to find the good stuff. I run around a little on tumblr looking at pictures and fanart. OMG! The art is amazing. I am in awe of people who can draw. There is some beautiful, gorgeous stuff on tumblr. And some beautiful stuff on AO3 too! I cannot even begin to tell you how talented some fans are. Wow! Vids too!

I hang out on AO3 reading. I have been totally swept away by Teen Wolf - and yes, I mean by Sterek - so I read a lot of that. I also read some Avengers, especially everything Darcy, with a few threesome combos in the mix. I very recently - like in the last couple of weeks - caught up on watching Sherlock so I've been reading a bit of that. I also caught up on Doctor Who, - also in the last couple of weeks - but since I haven't seen the last episode I had to stop reading the fic in fear of "spoilers, sweetie" - just imagine River Song saying that in her gorgeous voice. I loooove that woman! Her and Amy and Rory. Well, the Doctor too, actually. Which is a surprise to me since I wasn't really a big fan of his, initially.

I am completely behind on Haven, Lewis, Grimm, Suits, White Collar, Supernatural, The Good Wife, Merlin, Criminal Minds, Leverage, Common Law, Once Upon a Time, Castle, and I don't even know what else, truthfully. I have watched Glee and Hawaii Five 0. Both of which I'm thinking about NOT watching any more, especially Glee. OMG, especially Glee. I don't even know why I've watched that other than the boys wanted to and because of Kurt. Other than that, I don't even know. I really don't. I will probably continue watching H50 just to see what else they've slipped past the bigwigs at CBS because somebody, somewhere is not paying attention to the stuff they're letting them get away with.

I haven't watched any new shows other than Elementary, which I'm very much on the fence about. I like both of the actors fine and, I think, both of the characters. I'm not quite so sure about the writing though, particularly the bit about very, very tiny spoilerCollapse ). It definitely hasn't grabbed me. I really like the BBC version much better. Both Watsons are excellent and BBCSherlock is phenomenal, but I like CBSSherlock ok, for right now. Although, if they keep doing more of the same tiny spoilerCollapse ) I'll probably stop.

That's an update on the state of me. Well, other than I signed up to do the mini_wrimo thing again this year. I'm already got ideas about what to write in my drabbles! I am very excited about that! I hope everyone has been doing well, while I've been MIA. Ha, ha. MIA. That's funny. Yeah, I'm a dork, I know. But I can't help it. I think I may have been spending too much time reading about teenage werewolves and the boy who runs with wolves - I feel like I should finish that with "and the wolf who loves him", but I'll leave it be. We'll just pretend I'm not that much of a dork.

“What do you mean?”

“Don’t do that, man! That’s exactly what Kurt said. You know what I mean! There is something going on with you and Kurt. You take him with you on your trips whenever you can. You go out and eat all the time. You’re practically attached at the hip, dude!”

“Finn, there is nothing going on with Kurt. Everything is the same as it’s always been.”

“Anything else, sweetheart?”

“No, thanks.”

Seeing the faint grimace on Kurt’s face at the waitress’ question, Noah stopped stirring.

“What’s the matter?”

“Nothing.”

Squeezing lemon into the tea and stirring, Noah hummed quietly.

“It’s nothing.”

“Try this.”

“It’s tea, Noah, I’ve had tea before.”

“Not like this. It’s different here. Try it.”

“It’s good.”

Kurt took another sip.

“Will you tell me what’s the matter?”

“Everyone keeps calling me sugar, honey, sweetheart, baby. I’m not a baby.”

“They don’t mean it like that. It’s a southern thing. They do that to everyone.”

“They don’t think I’m just a kid?”

“No.”

Kurt had been seeing Puck in a different light since the trip to Paris. Puck had been so unlike what Kurt was used to. They traveled all over the city and Puck had been comfortable no matter where they’d gone. It wasn’t the usual badass attitude he’d had growing up. There was an ease of being in his own skin which infused all his actions.

Everyone’s manner toward him reflected this. He’d been Noah Puckerman, professional model, to everyone around him which in turn had affected his behavior in response. Kurt had seen him as Noah, not Puck.

“Noah?”

“Yeah?”

Puck is still not sure what the hell happens. He has some photos taken, signs a contract, and then forgets all about it. Until the first call.

Puck has some more photos taken. Then a few more. Until he spends more time doing that than he spends waiting tables. He quits his job at the restaurant and starts traveling all over the East Coast. Then the trips to the West Coast begin.

The day he gets the call about the trip to Paris he realizes this is his life now. This is not how he thought his life would be.

Finn and Kurt had been pestering him all week to call the guy from the modeling agency. He’d had enough and agreed to call, but he’d been putting it off. He knew what the douche wanted and didn’t get why they were determined he call him.

For hours, Puck had been dialing the hand-written number on the back of the card, but not pressing send. The thought of the look on Kurt’s face when Puck admitted he hadn’t called finally made him call.

“This is Noah Puckerman. You gave me your business card last week and told me to call.”

“Yeah, and?”

“You don’t know who that is? He’s a director at Wilhelmina International!”

“Who?”

“Not who, what. It’s a modeling agency.”

Per their site, James Roddey is a director at Wilhelmina International, but I have no idea of what. He does not go around giving his business card to random guys. Probably. I don't think.

Kurt feels like he’s always running, to his classes, to his job at the bookstore, to meet the other kids in his study groups, to work on his projects, to hang out with his friends. He doesn’t have a free moment, can never quite catch his breath.

New York is even more exciting than he ever dreamed. There is always something going on, something new to discover, someone new to meet. Being able to share it all with Finn and Puck makes it even better. He loves it. He keeps meaning to call Blaine, but there’s always something going on.

Puck watches the couples around him. He finds them all fascinating, likes seeing how they interact with each other, likes seeing if he can guess how they’re doing just by watching them. He watches one couple more sometimes, trying to figure them out. He admits he finds them confusing. On the surface, Kurt and Blaine seem to have a lot in common, but in reality, they are so very different.

Puck’s watching them so closely, he’s the first to see the cracks. He notices the silences, the stiff body language, the eye avoidance. He’s not surprised when they break up.

Puckurt drabbles

So I signed up for the 30 days of drabbles on the puckurt comm. And promptly started having connectivity issues. < head desk > Isn't that the way it always is? I swear. Anyway.

I did do my drabbles. They are so much harder to do with a piece of paper and a pencil. I think I erased a hole clean through the paper a time or two. And I kept having to count my words over and over and over. OMG! Soooo hard. But I did it.

I wrote a drabble each day in June so far. So you'll be seeing a Puckurt drabble post each day of June < crossing fingers >, along with the ones I've already done. Some of them may be connected in some way, others not in any way at all. Just depends on what ends up on the paper. Well, hopefully, the monitor, because, wow, paper and pencil is soooooooo hard.

NC

I have been riding a high for the last few days after seeing the Avengers (more on that later) this past weekend. I really thought there was nothing that could harsh my squee - yes, I really did think that - but living in a state full of homophobic dumb asses proved me wrong. I cannot believe they passed that idiotic amendment by more than 22 points! It isn't enough that gay marriage is already illegal in North Carolina, they had to pass an amendment to the State Constitution to make it even more illegal. The really, really idiotic thing about it is, they were so determined to ban gay marriage, they didn't even realize they were screwing het, unmarried couples as well.

"Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State." This is sooo vague and sooo very broad, there is no way of truly knowing how it's going to impact anyone. There is a silver lining to this, I guess. My employer sent out a memo to everyone saying "this action will not impact our long-standing policy to extend same-sex partner benefits to our faculty and staff" so that's a good thing.

I kept thinking, hoping, praying that people were not going to be short-sighted about this, especially with so many prominent people advocating against it, but it was not meant to be. Sometimes living in such a conservative state is a real drag, though, it could be worse, right? Some of the stuff going on in some the red states is a very scary thing. At least, NC stepped into the 21st century enough to go blue at the last presidential election, though they definitely mitigated some of that forward-thinking at the midterm election. I guess I'll just have to keep hoping that we'll go blue again in November. < crossing fingers >

“You have everything, son?”

“Yes, Dad. The Nav is completely packed.”

“Puckerman has all his stuff?”

“Yes, he does. Sam is all packed up. Finn too.”

“So tell me the plan again?”

“We’re driving to New York. Puck and I will move into our apartment. Since their semester starts a week later, Sam and Finn are going to stay for a few days, then they’re going to drive down to Atlanta.”

“And you’re sure you’re ok with Finn keeping your Nav?”

“Sam and Finn will get more use out of it at Georgia Tech than we will in New York.”

Puck keeps surprising him. When Puck had asked him to the prom, it had shocked him silent long enough that Puck’s face had started to blank. He’d finally been able to whisper his answer.

They’d gone to the prom. Kurt had been expecting this prom to be the same as the one before, where they both went, but hadn’t really been together. Puck held his hand, danced with him, and kissed him at the end of the night.

Puck surprised him again when he kissed Kurt at school and walked him to his classes with his arm around his shoulders.

“Noah, you know she can’t come home. She’s only been gone a couple of months; her first semester isn’t even over.”

“You don’t want Audrey to come home?”

“That’s not fair! She’s my kid too. Of course, I want her here, safe and happy! But I know being away is what she needs. She’s just lonely and homesick right now.”

“She wants to come home.”

“She is a grown woman and wants to be treated like one. To us, she’s our little girl and we’ll treat her like that. No one would be happy if she came home.”

“I guess.”

“If you wouldn’t…”

“I’m not actually doing anything.”

“Noah…”

“You know I’m not.”

“I know.”

“You’re just afraid that I will.”

“Yeah.”

“You look when a tight pair of jeans walk by. It’s the same thing.”

“No, it isn’t.”

“Yes, it is. I’m just looking. Just because it’s a girl doesn’t mean it’s more.”

“But…”

“I know when you look it doesn’t mean anything more than appreciation. For me, it’s the same. I’m it for you, right?”

Yes.”

“You’re it for me too.”

OMG!

So I got a new toy today! I unexpectedly received some reimbursement money at work. And what did I do with it? Instead of using to buy something I need, like bath towels or something for the house, I used it to buy something that I wanted! I bought an iPad 2. Do not need it for a blessed thing, but I got it anyway. I justified it to myself because a lot of my coworkers use it instead of our work-issued laptop on site at the clinics. I also got it at a discount because a friend of a friend is an Apple employee and they got it using their employee discount. And it cost me $2, after I used the reimbursement money. So you see how I had to get it, right?

I'm in the process of setting it up right now. I have no earthly idea what apps to use. It's the first Apple product that I've gotten because I didn't want to give my money to "The Man". Now that I have, I'm completely clueless. Lately, I've been installing lots of apps on my Droid, so I guess I'll take a look to see if I find the same apps in the Apple store. Does anyone know of any apps that I should get? Something that I have to have?

“Kurt, you’ve gotten me thinking.”

“Yeah? What about? I hope it didn’t hurt.”

“Shut up, you. I’m serious. I’ve been thinking about what you said, about being a chef. Got me thinking about what I wanted to be doing for the rest of my life. I don’t want to do something that I’ll hate.”

“You decided what you want to be when you grow up?”

“I really think I have.”

“Going to tell me?”

“I’m good with numbers and I want to help small businesses get out of the economic mess we’re in. I just have to figure out how.”

“Decided on your classes yet, Kurt?”

“Not yet. Still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.”

“I’ve been thinking about the same thing myself.”

“I have figured something out. I’ve been talking about going to Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. I finally realized that that’s not where I want to go to school.”

“You and Rachel have been talking about going there for forever! Are you sure?”

“Yeah, Puck, I am.”

“So what are you going to do?”

“I want to go to the Culinary Institute. I want to be a chef.”

Noah squeezed the bridge of his nose, trying to stave off the impending headache.

“You know you’re going to have to give in and get glasses.”

“I don’t need glasses, Kurt.”

“You do.”

“No, I don’t.”

“Just because you have to wear reading glasses doesn’t mean you’re getting old, Noah.”

“Only old people need reading glasses.”

“That’s not true.”

Sitting down on Noah’s lap, Kurt leaned down to kiss him. “Will it help if I tell you that I think boys in glasses are sexy?”

Pulling away with a nip at Kurt’s lower lip, “I'll set up a doctor’s appointment.”

“Puck, can I talk to you for a minute, please?”

“What’s up, Hummel?”

“You took Calculus last year with Mr. Harris, right?”

“Yeah.”

“I have him this year. His class is killing my GPA. No matter how hard I study, I just don’t get it. He’s always a jerk if you ask a question he thinks is stupid, so I don’t ask. Because I don’t understand something, it makes it harder to understand the next thing.”

“He’s a total douche like that. He’s a horrible teacher. You need some help?”

“Yes, please.”

“I’ll come to your house tonight. We’ll study.”

“Going to the prom with the hobbit again this year?”

“Not that it’s any of your business, Puck, but no I’m not. We won’t be going anywhere together any more. We broke up.”

“Why did you two break up? Did you finally realize how much of a douche he is?”

“Again, not your business.”

“Kurt, you have to tell me what happened.”

“Why in the world would I do something like that?”

“You have to tell me what he did so I won’t make the same mistakes he did.”

“What do you mean?”

“Will you go to prom with me?”

“Poppa, hurry up. Daddy has the music ready.”

“Princess, I’m coming. I just had to finish that report and I’m done now.”

“Hurry, Poppa! We have to practice!”

“I’m here. Are you ready?”

“Yes!”

“Ok. Kurt, turn on the music, please.”

Pulling her arms into position, Noah said, “Honey, put your arms up like this. Now put your feet on mine. I won’t let you fall, alright?”

“Alright.”

“You and Daddy get a dress today?”

“It was the prettiest one!”

“You are going to be the prettiest flower girl for Finn’s wedding.”

Noah slowly waltzed his daughter around the room.

“Mercedes, it’s beautiful! Finn did good.”

“So you didn’t help him choose it, Kurt?”

“Hey, I picked it by myself!”

“And you did great, Finn. You’ll have to tell me how he proposed, Mercedes.”

“Only if you’ll tell me how Puck proposed, Boo.”

“I can’t.”

“Why not?”

“Because he never actually asked me. He just started talking about what we’d do when we got married. He put the ring on my hand when I was asleep that night.”

“Dude, you never asked him? You told me you were going to!”

“If I had asked him, he could have said no!”

Noah’s hand rested on the back of Kurt’s neck, rubbing in small circles, pressing into the bunched muscles. “It will be all right, babe. You know you’re perfect for this. They’ll see it too.”

Moaning in relief, Kurt tilted his head so Noah could reach the other side of his neck. The painful press of fingers into the knotted muscles felt amazing. “Yeah, but, there are so many others…”

“You’ve been practicing for this for weeks. You’ve worked really hard and you got this.”

With a swift kiss to Kurt’s mouth, Noah whispered, “Break a leg.”

Kurt walked out onstage.

“I’m your husband. If I don’t tell you than who will.”

Noah stopped walking, realizing Kurt wasn’t beside him. Turning, he saw Kurt standing still, an arrested expression on his face. Walking back, he placed a hand on Kurt’s chest, “What’s wrong, babe?”

“You called me your husband.”

“Yeah, and?”

“That’s the first time I’ve ever heard you say that.”

“And that’s why you’re looking all gobsmacked? You realize we’ve been married for almost a year?”

“It’s just… It’s the first time you’ve said that.”

Laughing softly, “Sweetheart, it’s funny, what catches your attention sometimes. Come on. We’ll be late.”

Kurt watches as Noah dresses. Adjusting his pants till they hang just so, the sliding of cufflinks into the sleeves of his dress shirt, the slow buttoning of his waistcoat, the deft movements of his hands tying his tie into a half-Windsor, the smoothing down of his coat, the careful taming of the curls at his nape, the very image of a successful man ready for the day.

Kurt likes seeing him like this, watching him don his armor to do battle against the world. The severe image changes when Noah notices him watching, the smile on his face incandescent.

SOPA

Today I saw the banner on AO3 and clicked on the link. I already submitted to TPTB in my neck of the woods about the SOPA thing. Please take a minute and click on the link. I think this would be a scarily bad thing to get passed into law. And I don't mean just in regards to DLing. I think it is the beginning of a very slippery slope. Who knows where we'll end up.

“Tell you what, sweet girl. Poppa will read you a story once you’re in bed.”

“Three.”

“Two.”

“Ok, but he has to do all the voices.”

“I’ll make sure to tell him.”

“Come on, get in the bed. After I tuck you in, I’ll get Poppa.”

“Noah, Audrey wants you to read her a story. And she says you have to do the voices.”

“I’m coming, babe.”

"Yeah."

"What you making?"

"I've been craving Mexican all day."

"Chicken, I think. We have to start thinking about your cholesterol level, Noah."

"Yes, dear."

"I talked to Finn earlier."

"How they doing? Her morning sickness get better?"

"Yeah, they tried something or other that Carol told them about and it helped."

"I’m glad. Aretha was having a hard time with that."

"She was, but she’s doing better."
