It was the first early start for a while this morning. But really, I don't mind them at all, and I especially like that it's dinner time and all the stuff that needed doing has been done. Including cleaning the windows which is always a pain.

I've caught up on LJ/DW, so will head up to see mam for a while and after James finishes work at 1 we'll probably head off for a walk somewhere.

I went to the dentist on Thursday and it turns out I only needed one filling not two, so that was good. They're going to fit a temporary cap on my next visit in a fortnight, then the permanent one after that, and then no more cement tooth.

We went to the cinema to see Unforgeable, which didn't live up to its name. The reviews said it was the same genre of films like Single White Female and Basic Instinct, which it was, but it's the kind of film I'll forget going to see in a few weeks. Plus, for those who like to keep note, James fell asleep for the beginning portion of it.

I've seen the A03 meme going around, so figured why not? I used to write, right? Actually, I still do, just haven't lately which means my BBB is dead in the water, but I still have hopes for bingo.

Nothing surprising there at all, except Nowhereville flying up the ranks. And I remain thrilled that Blurring, the fic that was recced as someone's guilty pleasure, is so high. Do not worry people who love coma!Pete. You're not alone!

My heyday, man. Obviously years ago. And again, my soft spot for 10 Rules remains, many many years later and that short thrown -out story remains loved it seems.

Only change Imitating Yesterday, which has a high bookmark compared to kudos or hit. All I can think is the people who like it really like it.

Have a great day!!

And I'm glad you didn't need as much dental work as you feared. Always nice when that happens.

Those are some pretty nice numbers too! I miss writing so much sometimes, but I haven't been in a fandom in a long time where I felt comfortable writing the characters. RPS was comparatively easy (though writing never feels easy), because what you're working with is an outwardly projected personality, really, that you can tack your impressions on. Meanwhile canon characters usually have that backstory to them and a certain personality. I feel like the more I know about a character the more nerve-wracking it gets to write them! Ha.

Go you getting your chores done early! I hope the dentist stuff won't be too much of a pain.

I'm glad to see your works being appreciated!

That's good news about your teeth!

I wonder what the statistics are for James falling asleep at a movie :-)

It's kind of amazing the way The Looking After Mikey fic is still gets so many kudos this many years later. But then maybe not, it is a very sweet little story after all and sometimes it's those that really have staying power.
