Two new challenge fics posted recently, one SGA for Rare Characters (on which my recipient has thus far failed to even kudos, which bugs the hell out of me - even if you hate it, I wrote it for you, you could at least say thank you! Rude!), and one for the Marvel Big Bang (with awesome art by sian1359):

Off the grid on a mission gone awry, the first thing Clint knows of the downfall of SHIELD is when his rescuer, James, hands over a newspaper article. James knows way more about Clint than he should, but Clint recognises the way James seems like he's running from something, and anyway, it's not like he's got a better bet for getting out of the country. So that's what his life has come to: fleeing the country in a train car, sleeping with an ex-brainwashed assassin - and then Natasha and Steve show up.

MBB is also the first time since... I don't even remember when... that I posted directly to LJ - oh my god, what did they do to the posting interface?! Let a gremlin nibble on it? I have no idea how it's meant to work any more

Ooh, fic! I'm not really a Bucky fan, but Clint/Bucky is one pairing I kind of enjoy. And I always love your writing. :D

Hi! How are you?? Yeah, the LJ interface is all wonky now. I'm glad we can still just cross-post from DW for most things. How's your hockey fic going?

I saw your post in August about getting a Kindle... I recently bought a Samsung Tab 3, which I hope to use to read on the subway. At least it'll let me save webpages so I can read where there's no wifi. :D

I don't think I'm writing a hockey fic? At least, I hope I'm not - I don't know anything about hockey! Either that, or I'm losing my mind, which I would not put past me at the moment.

I'm soooo sorry! *Obviously* you don't write hockey fic. Total (brief!) brain fart on my part, getting you and [personal profile] blackeyedgirl confused. Ugh, it's been a *very* long couple of weeks, work-wise.

Congrats on the new job! What's this new job about? Do you like it so far? I'm now articling with two family law lawyers and they keep me hopping. I haven't had time for fic writing in a long while.

(I accept that my thing about Bucky is a bit hypocritical, given that I ship plenty of white guys, but I've been frustrated that Bucky and Coulson were resurrected while women and POC characters weren't. :P )

I'm a bit stressed, but I generally enjoy the work. I should take more initiative, though. With confidence!

People keep telling me that all jobs get a bit repetitive, so make sure you like the people around you! I'm glad you're enjoying your coworkers. The people in my office are pretty nice but we're only friendly, not friends. At my previous job, we were all students and hung out together at school. I kinda miss that atmosphere...

I went into CA:TWS spoiled, so I wasn't too worried about Sam or Maria, but I'm annoyed by what happened to Jasper Sitwell (whom I'm convinced was a triple agent and is recuperating from being thrown from a car in one of Fury's safe houses). Ah well, it's an old rant and I don't want to bore you. ;)
