Avngr: Angst!Loki from Thor

Right, with that out of the way...

SO with my adventures in San Francisco drawn to a close, another bullet added to my growing list of life-altering mistakes, I move on to greener pastures aka Washington DC.. professionally speaking, and return to older pastures aka fandom - personally speaking. I love DC... by far the most global, transient and cosmopolitan city I've known after London. Sure I can think of a thousand other places I'd rather be, like Venice, or Goa, or Hogwarts, but this will do for now. 

Things I hope to get back to while I'm here...

1. Not dating. I am renouncing relationships period, embracing the sisterhood of eternal singleness and sparing myself the heart ache. Why have we done this to ourselves, created a superfluous cultural standard, forced everyone to live up to it, then make them feel like there's something wrong with them if they cannot? That's it. I'm done subscribing to this ridiculousness. Men suck. And not in a good way.
2. Writing. I'm like that horrible ungrateful 2am friend that calls only when I'm in need, of writing, and then forget all about it when everything's hunky dory out there in the real world. I'm despicable I know. Let's see if I can change that. Let's see if I can make men suck in a good way for a change, hehe. *headdesk* The problem is I'm getting a little sick of trying to Americanize my obviously not American English (at least in my head I can sense the difference very strongly), and maybe I just need to find genres and situations that allow me to write the way I want. Writing about American 30 somethings brought up in Texas and living in California is definitely not the right situation, for instance.  
3. X-Men. It's always been my go-to comfort!fandom - at least that's one thing I've stayed true to. Hunters and Special Agents and Avengers will come and go, but my OTP is and always will be Logan/Scott. And I know there are hardly any takers left but that doesn't matter anymore.
4. Reading. I haven't kept up with any reading whatsoever - not books, not fanfiction, nothing. Tumblr is partly to blame - changed all my guilty pleasures from literal to visual. But no more. I'm getting back to the things that I used to do, things that made me happy and appreciate my own company before I tried morphing myself into a bloody Stepford Wife.
5. Friends! Anyone still around? I won't be surprised if not. LJ's been kinda slow right, and its natural for folks to get on with their respective lives. But if you're still here I'd love to catch up.

New obsessions...

1. Loki - Anyone else on the Avengers bandwagon yet? I'm starting to fixate on Loki - you know me, its always the tortured younger brother that gets me heh. 
2. Teen Wolf - this seems to me like the only good thing on TV these days. The writing isn't as tight as TVD but I love all the characters and the music. What say you?
3. Robin Hobb - someone had a 'yard sale' (is that what it's called when a tenant moves out out an apartment?) and I bought a dozen paperbacks for like 2 dollars - I'm starting to really like this sci-fi/fantasy genre. 

Okay that's enough ranting for today. Hope everyone's doing well and having the best time of their lives, with more yet to come! :)

Hi! I'm fine, just busy - the girls seem to take up 99% of my time and energy these days, which can be hard. And I know I don't *need* to agree with you, lol, but I often do. I used to think they made you take vows because it was romantic and all? *rolls eyes* As it turns out, it's because you're going to want to strangle the other person half the time. At least in my case, lol. But I think making yourself happy is definitely the way to go, single or not. It's faster and you know what you like! :)

You're hardly unfortunate - you're a fabulous person and deserve someone equally fabulous; hold out for the good stuff. ;)

I'm so sorry; it's Steve and Clint? Not that I don't think Loki is totally deserving, but the muse just happened to swing this way? And she hasn't been around in so long that I thought I should just shut up and write, lol. But yay for new shared fandoms! And I just knew when I saw your mention of Teen Wolf that Jet was going to be super-excited; I still need to see that. :)

Looking forward to anything you write next (promise!!)! *hugs*

Thank you so much sweetie. Sometime I feel like there was supposed to be just the one fabulous person for me. And I had my time with him all those years ago and.. now I'm done. Now I don't a second fabulous person period. God knows I've looked, I've been all over the world looking. Ack damn, look at me rambling away so pathetically hehe.

Steve and Clint is awesome!! :) I'm totally reading it. And in the meantime maybe I'll keep nudging you in the direction of some Thor/Loki too hehe ;P
