Went on a date last night, meeting a guy from OkCupid. Not sure about the romantic chemistry, but the two of us spent most of the time talking about Marvel and similar, making it one of the easiest dates I've been on in a long time. He had the right attitude towards women, too, for the most part. We've agreed to have another date, and I suppose if all else fails, we can go see Spiderman: Homecoming together. Except I'm not sure when I'm going to see it, now. I was planning to go Sunday, when there'd be no play at Wimbledon, but now my mother and sister are planning a beach trip! At least the early comments are very promising, indeed, being not only positive, but making it sound like something I'll really enjoy.
More than can be said for this Inhumans series, I fear. All I can say now is it better not mess with Agents of SHIELD and their ability to tell the story of the Inhumans, because it looks like they're telling a better one. They should've left it with them, maybe with an Inhuman character showing up in the moves or other things now and then; if they want a superpowered character without trying to figure out their backstory, that could be the go-to explanation.
But a bigger aggravation today was my purse is now in the process of falling apart. I've had it less than a year and a half, and it cost me hundreds. My sister has insisted I buy designer ones the last two times, talking about how long they'll last, and for the second one made it a point to take me to an "outlet" mall where they'd cost two hundred rather than four. Neither of them lasted any longer than the cheap one I had before them. Saturday I'll have to brave the heat to look for another cheap one. I don't want to be throwing away money on purses anymore anyway.

Title: You're Not Defeated, You're in Repair
Fandom: Agents of SHIELD
Characters: Jemma/Fitz
Disclaimer: Now Disney owns them.
Warning: Reference to noncon, discussion of toxic masculinity
Note: This may or may not turn into a series. I've really not sure.

Just give me your hand and hold on/ Together we'll dance through the storm )

I have now been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The doctor advised aerobic exercise, meditation, an antidepressant, a muscle relaxant, and less stress. Not entirely sure how I'm supposed to manage the last. Especially when I have days like this one, which start with my sandal breaking and end with the discovery the guy we've been trying to talk to all day didn't realize we weren't in his time zone.
The antidepressant also isn't one with a high success rate. I'm probably going to try the muscle relaxant first, although given both medications could exacerbate the other medical issue I'm having right now, I'm not too eager to try either. I can redo my exercise regimen and try to figure out how to meditate, but it looks like I just have to live with yet more pain in my life.
This weekend my mother, sister, and I are headed to the beach, where we are supposed to relax. Maybe if we actually do, the pain will be reduced? I'll try to get the next part of "Habeas for Superheroes" posted tomorrow, before then. Three more multiparters I worked on today that I am really close to finishing the next part...
At least I'm not stressing about Agents of SHIELD anymore. I'm even kind of optimistic the next season will be a bit more fun, if it's the right kind of outer space adventure for that. Besides, none of the things I dreaded happened last night.

I was actually deeply relieved watching this season's Agents of SHIELD, because we really did have Fitz back, with his compassion, his easy-to-overlook quick thinking, his devotion to Jemma, his going into hysterics when his friends were in danger, all of it. And that last scene got me once again expressing my reaction in the form of fic:

All We Have Is This Very Moment )

Maybe after the trauma that was last night's episode, it'll help?

Title: Everything Can Wait But Now
Fandom: Agents of SHIELD
Characters: Jemma/Fitz, Jemma/Triplett
Disclaimer: Now Disney owns them.
Warning: Masturbation
Note: I wrote most of this two years ago, while the second season was airing, with the intent of posting it that May. Then I just sort of abandoned it. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I looked it over, and decided to finish it and post it this May. Takes places right after "Afterlife."

Jemma’s hands still smelt of mozzarella and pesto aioli. )

Title: Any Way You Frame It
Fandom: Agents of SHIELD
Characters: Jemma/Fitz, Aida
Disclaimer: Now Disney owns them.
Warning: References to rape and character deaths
Note: My reaction to the most recent pair of episodes of Agents of SHIELD came out in the form of fic.

She’s sure Aida knows she’s here. She kind of made a show of walking in. )

Since the beginning of the week I've experienced leg pain and especially foot pain I'm pretty sure is caused by sciatica, meaning it probably wouldn't be of much use to go to the doctor. But this morning it got so bad I made an appointment for tomorrow anyway. It wasn't as bad in the afternoon, and went down further after I was out of my work shoes, but I've simply spent too long being unable to walk without pain to not do something.
Tempted to write fic in response to this latest Agents of SHIELD pod, which would pretty much be processing my feelings about Fitz and how terrible both what he's doing and what's being done to him is. I'm wondering how on Earth the writers can come up with a "satisfying" ending for all this by the end of the season, which we've been assured they've been told to do, because they know they might not get the chance to resolve anything left hanging. Then again, the way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if the series got cancelled days before the finale aired, at la Castle last year. Maybe they'll shoehorn in an epilogue scene for this series too?
Stressed myself stupid this week writing my self assessment for my annual performance appraisal, and then couldn't put what I've written into the form! Someone failed to press a button somewhere, or something weird like that, and now I've got to wait for it to be fixed. Then I pulled a nail out, needed to have my right index finger bandaged, and it actually hurts to type right now! Hope it feels better in the morning.

Title: Branching Out
Fandom: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Characters: Leo Fitz/Jemma Simmons
Disclaimer: Their Marvel's.
Warning: Peggin, rimming, teabagging, and other dirty things
Notes: Takes place sometime between seasons 3 and 4.

Leo Fitz was starting to get really good at sex. Or at least, he was getting really good at sex with Jemma Simmons, and it wasn’t like he was interested in engaging in any other kind of sex. )

I've signed up for Awesome Ladies. And then I decided to ask permission to record the Karen ficlet I've long wanted to do, the first time I've actively asked instead of just searching for blanket permissions. And the author granted it! I am way too excited about this, but it's nice to be excited for a good reason for once.
Meanwhile, I also have this odd piece of Quackery:

And now one of Trump's people has declared that if we disagree with anything he says, federal employees should quit. At least that makes me feel much better about staying. In the library we continue final preparations for the launch of our new version of libguides, the service on which most of our online presence sits. Also our eBook services are merging. Tomorrow originally included me calling into a webinar I couldn't view for cybersecurity reasons to learn what that means for us, but we were advised it really isn't much use if you couldn't see it, and we'll get an onsite visit from the vendor people next time they happen to be in the area. Vendors have representatives constantly traveling around, to train people as well as to sell wares.
Spent the last two nights watching the extended edition of The Martian on DVD. It's one of my Christmas purchases, and it's a good movie to have on hand in times like these. Even when things are getting harrowing right now, one can still believe perhaps by the 2030s we'll be sorted out enough for the story to become plausible then. Another on was Guardians of the Galaxy, another optimistic movie.
Wrote a humourous Quack ficlet today in response to Agents of SHIELD, but I'm not sure right now whether it's finished or not, so that'll probably get posted tomorrow. Meanwhile, if the world must end, I ask that it not do so until the season finishes airing. I really need to see know how that all turns out first. Especially since I'm optimistic the writers will leave everyone still alive in a good place, or at least a tolerable one, what with the high chance of the series getting cancelled and everything. At least, I hope they'll be so kind.

Since this was the first podfic I've done to go over ten minutes, I decided to add music. Then I ended up making cover art for all six of the podfics I've done so far!

Title: He Lied About Death
Author: paperclipbitch
Original Fic: Here
Fandom: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Characters: Coulson/May
Music: "Darkest Dreaming" by David Sylvian
Disclaimer: Universe owned by Marvel & Disney. Original fic by paperclipbitch. Music isn't mine either.
Warning: Talk of sex and violence
Notes: Still getting the hang of how people so this soundwise and musicwise...

We got our first batch of rebound books back Monday. The colors were all paler than they looked on the website, the books were not handled the best during transport and there were places where the binding wasn't as good as we would've liked, but these books are all fully serviceable again. Now my main worry is getting them all processed back in and reshelved, then turning around and having the third batch ready before I head off to Europe. Second batch should be returned and the third batch picked up the day before I come back! We may end up making much of the new batch out of a multi-volume set; those are a lot faster to process.
I just found out from a tweet that the EMH Mark 2 from Star Trek: Voyager was played by Andy Dick. I'd seen him on Dancing with the Stars a few years back and had had no idea. Well, I now know he's a pretty good comic actor. The strength of that episode really was him and Picardo, both apart and together.
Meanwhile, there's been Agents of SHIELD, and I really like where they're taking the characters so far(especially Jemma). But I have no idea if I'm going to like where they're taking the plot of this first season half. Although last night, my reaction to the episode was limited, because I was busy trying to finish my recap of the Dancing with the Stars results show! Was planning to blog for the fifth day in a row tonight, even, combing the Volosozhar/Trankov baby news with recent news about Sotnikova, then another report threw the latter news in doubt, so I will be working on that tomorrow as well. Along with catching up with videos from Slovenia.

Title: How That DC Metro Scene Would've Gone Had the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Writers Done Any Research Whatsoever
Fandom: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Characters: Phil Coulson/Rosalind Price, Lance Hunter, Luther Banks, and the rest of that train party
Disclaimer: The characters are Marvel's, and I'm not responsible for the metro either; I merely endure it.
Warning: Mild violence, the DC Metro
Notes: Wanted to write this ever since that scene in "Laws of Nature" had all DC-native viewers yelling "Wait a minute!" at their TVs, have finally done so thanks to being able to play and replay the scene on Netflix as I wrote.

If she hasn’t finished her coffee, they stay with her while she drinks it before going into the station, since you’re not allowed to bring that on the train, and they accompany her to the turnstiles, where she stays until the train that’s supposed to arrive at 9:35 actually does arrive, and then she goes through alone and essentially runs to the platform and onto the train. )

It seems 2016 is the year everyone in the MCU breaks up and wrecks their lives. We expected such things from Civil War, of course, what with it being the Civil War. But much more heartbreaking was actually the second season of Daredevil, especially since while we know the Avengers will be reunited in two years’ time, and the final sequence of Civil War even laid the ground for it, two months after it dropped we’re still waiting anxiously to see if that third season even happens(and if it does, and they do Born Again, it’ll get worse before it gets better). And meanwhile in real life, we’re starting to see even more sharply the divide between the movies and the TV universes, with a huge global phenomenon from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. getting what seems like a begrudged line of vague lipservice in Civil War. Which is not good; the whole appeal of this franchise is that they’ve got this shared universe with shared history, and the movies would be well to suck it up and accept that they’re not the only thing writing said history.

Title: Cut Loose
Fandom: Agents of SHIELD
Characters: Fitz/Jemma, Daisy
Disclaimer: Now Disney owns them.
Warning: Discussion of mind control, references to rape
Note: Had this idea for weeks, finally managed to get writing out of it this weekend. Also my way of coping with the upcoming death.

Some time passes between Daisy’s return to the base and when Fitz finally has a chance to be alone with her. )

Title: Agent Murdock
Part: Prologue
Fandom: Daredevil/Agents of SHIELD
Characters: Matt Murdock, Phil Coulson
Disclaimer: Now Disney owns them.
Warning: Coulson is far better and more ethical than Stick here, but he still has the same ends
Note: I originally came up with this idea and put it up on [community profile] daredevilkink as a prompt before the second season, but after watching said season I decided to write it myself just to cheer myself up.

The nuns had been quick to remind Matt of that, but this man sounded different. Sad, like they’d been, but thoughtful, as if he might actually believe what Matt was saying. )

Went to the George Mason Book Sale tonight. Twice a year one of the local public libraries sells off their weeded books this way, and while usually mom and I go Sunday, she's booked for this weekend, so we went opening night instead. Got a copy of The Martian I'll read when I'm done with Mary Beard, an Inu Yasha manga I just finished reading, and a book of photographs I'll probably get to sometime tomorrow. Although I actually have something else to post either tomorrow or Saturday, a promise I made ten years ago to a pair of Star Wars fic writers that I must now make good on.
Even as I'm also trying to write out my feelings about Fitzsimmons and Agents of SHIELD in general right now; I may or may not succeed in that. This has been a fun couple of days, everybody celebrating recent events. I just hope neither of those two scientists is the one about to be killed off.

Arrived back from Boston Monday with the bunyon on my left finger having turned painful, so I didn't do much typing before Tuesday afternoon. Finished typing up this first Daredevil post-season 2 fic last night, with most of two more to go.

Title: We Looked Like Giants
Fandom: Daredevil/Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Characters: Matt/Daisy
Disclaimer: Now Disney owns them.
Warning: Underage sex(they're both seventeen), brief mentions of rape and abuse
Note: This is a fill for a [community profile] daredevilkink prompt: shuffle your playlist, write something inspired by the first song which comes up. Except I was putting a CD on when I read the prompt, the first song on it was Death Cab for Cutie's "We Looked Like Giants," and my mind immediately flew to Matt/Elektra, except this somehow became Matt/Daisy in between that and starting this...

I'd brave those mountain passes/ And you'd skip your early classes/ and we'd learn how our bodies worked )

This one was finished late at night, so I'm posting it now.
