See? I gave everybody here an opportunity to tell me what a bad person I am and nobody did, because I fuckin' rule.

Gggguuuh. After roughly a quarter-century of not being able to finish a single piece of fictional writing in any form or any genre, yesterday I finished my second OFMD fic. Even if it sucks, it at least has a clear arc and a proper end, and I already have a bit of a plot bunny for a third. I can't even... my brain has been so hungry to be in this space, and I've failed so many times in the last 20-mumble years, and now this stupid goofy pirateverse broke something open and I'm hearing stories in my head again. Not just characters or general fuzzy ideas, but clear entire stories. This silly bit of queer romcom fluff gave me a huge vital piece of myself back, and I'm just so stunned I could cry with it.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

(Grinning like crazy watching JZ writing. Also somewhat envious, but that's okay. Go, woman! Write like the wind!)

So happy to see this, JZ, and the joy it brings you.

Small squee, and I realize how ridiculously tiny this is but still: Someone recced one of my stories, and I'm all the way up to a whopping 63 kudos plus one comment indicating that the dorkiest pun I've ever made finally found its target audience.

That's the pain / That cuts a straight line down through the heart / We call it love

Awesome, JZ! I love when a reader picks out a line that you're really proud of.
