Good god, there is something to be said for being such a little fannish fish. The one I'm finding most relevant right now is that I don't get bad feedback on my fic. Not because all (or even most!) of my fic is good, but because if someone stumbles upon it and doesn't like it, they just delete it or move on. I'm not worth even putting a bad review out there for.

Anyhoo... there's a ton of remix and exchange fic out there lately and I am absolutely AMAZED at some reactions. Recipients who don't even acknowledge that something was written for them, recipients that bitch that what was written wasn't what they wanted. OH. MY. GOD.

I can totally see being disappointed; it happens. But good gravy, be a damned human being! Say a simple thank you. (Yes, LIE. It's called a white lie. People generally use those to maintain good manners. It's like telling your friend whose new haircut you hate that it looks nice, just because SHE'S thrilled with it.) Then move on! There's absolutely no reason to go on about how they didn't fulfil your every wish.

I mean, seriously, that's like telling Aunt Betty you loathe the sweater she made you for Christmas! You don't HAVE to like it. But you DO have say thank you, and you (should) acknowledge that she took the time and effort to make it JUST FOR YOU.

And on top of that, do you even understand how remixs and exchanges work? There's no guarantee that you get what you want. If you're very lucky, you do. If you don't... see above.

(And it's not like these authors need me to defend them, but damn, my knee jerk reaction was to want to stab the people who left bad reviews and shoot back a snarky comment.)
((Which, incidentally, I refrained from doing. Because I am polite like that.))
(((Also? I've been absolutley THRILLED with all past and present exchange fics I've ever gotten. I am, apparently, a very lucky girl.)))

I am a very lucky woman to not only have made such fabulous fandom friends 16 years ago, but to also have made more recent ones. Thank you all for the birthday wishes.

Title: a backless dress and some beat up sneaks
Fandom/Pairing: Avengers/MCU, Clint/Natasha
Warnings & Rating: None, it’s PG fluffiness

Notes: My child has spent days… weeks… what feels like months… singing Shut Up and Dance With Me. (But last night he was singing Taylor Swift. Go figure.) He’s earwormed me so badly that my brain short circuited and wrote this piece of total fluff.

A party, some dancing, and some deadly assassins making the daring move to make their relationship public.

In the "you learn something new every day" file...

So I was walking back from lunch today and almost stepped on a dead bumblebee lying on the brick. (You know, one of those really fat, really fuzzy big bees?) And I've been noticing a lot of them around my yard and garden lately. Always buzzing around by the grass and not the flowers, which seemed weird, because clearly we mow our lawn often enough that the grass is not flowering and yes, we have lots of flowering weeds in the grass, but those get chopped down in the mowing too.

Anyhoo. Bumblebees. Lots of 'em lately. So I looked them up and discovered that unlike regular honeybees, they tend to live in the ground or leaf piles or... anywhere but hives? And they like to use old abandoned mouse or mole holes in the ground. (And god know, we have tons of those, in addition to a virtual condo of chipmunk holes, and yes, isn't it great to live in the boondocks? ;)) So apparently that may be why I keep seeing them hovering over the grass. Huh.

(I also discovered everyone but the queen dies each year. Double huh.)

And now, even though I just interlibrary requested a bunch of fluffy YA books, I must need to go find a book on bees because I'm supremely curious now. :)

Idyll Interupted
Fandom/Relationship: Avengers, Clint/Natasha
Rating/Warnings: PG13, Language, Post-Civil War - Spoilers!!!

Turning Circles

Summary: Getting noticed by a small-town, minor league hockey player shouldn't have gotten her this hot and bothered. Why then, was Natasha exactly that?

I suspect crickets, but I'm feeling brave...
And the women of SHIELD thing has stalled...
And it's a long weekend...

So if anyone feels so inclined, throw me a character or pairing and a prompt and I will attempt a drabble.

franzi's and gecko's friends write for each other - Dear Writer Letter

::waves:: Hello There! For the most part, I am a very easy going reader and I'll take almost anyone and anything, even though my favorites are listed on my sign up.

For Marvel:
I adore Natasha and Clint most, but am open to all kinds of stuff and don't need them to be the focus of a fic. I also love Darcy Lewis, Steve's dynamics with various characters, and anything with Melinda May or Maria Hill.

Want to throw in comics cannon and characters? Have at it! I've grown fond of Kate even if I've never seen her. I like seeing her and Clint as best friends. Not so into them as a couple. I'm open to learning more on other comic characters.

For couples, my biggest love is Nat/Clint. Have also been swayed to Darcy/Clint, Darcy/Bucky, & Maria/Steve.

OTP or OT3 or even multiships are good! Darcy/Bucky/Steve, Clint/Nat/Steve, Clint/Nat/Bucky, Laura/Clint/Nat. They're all good!

Prefer serious or mission fic to fluff, romance, or smut? I like them all! It's nice if the smut has a lead up or purpose, however, and isn't just sex for sex. (sleepy mornings, post-mission highs, comfort sex, reunion sex, etc.)

I also ike just plain old friendship fic and made family fic. (Ok, made family may be a particular kink of mine. You get extra points for that!) Natasha and Tony intrigue me a lot.

If you want to go off the new movie, I'd like more Natasha & Black Panther, more Ant Man (Scott and Clint buddying it up would be fun!), and I'd adore if you wanted to put Sam, Bucky & Steve on a roadtrip.

Big no's: Clint/Coulson, character death, alpha/omega stuff, fairytale or mermaid AUs.

West Wing:
I'll take almost anyone and anything, although Josh/Donna or CJ anything is preferred. I like the quiet moments between any of these characters and I'm big on pining. But I also thoroughly enjoy the banter and snark.

If wanting to go the romantic or the smut route, I'm into: Josh/Donna, Josh/CJ, CJ/Toby, Andy/Toby, Josh/Donna/Sam. I am not into Jed/Leo or Slash!Toby.

Big fan of staying in the known TWW universe and not going AU or changing the known history too much, but am willing to have you convince me. I love how much these people all care about one another so deeply.

Big no's: Nothing comes to mind. Ryo broke up my OTP years ago in the most heartwrenching, non-death way and I survived it, so nothing can phase me now. Have at it!

Brooklyn 99:
I would LOVE any type of friendship fic, especially if it's between two characters who are total opposites (hello Amy and Rosa!). The relationships between these crazy, diverse people are what really intrigue me. But I would not like any romantic fic, unless it's already an established couple on the show.

Sleepy Hollow:
Fix it for me! Doesn't need to be romantic, but I love the four core characters and I'd love to see them together again in any capacity. Give me Abbie, Crane, Jenny, and Joe in any combination! Not a big fan of Katrina, but a cameo of Headless could be fun. Anything that has Crane learning about the modern world is appreciated as well.

Big no: Incest.
