Purslane

Not a banner day at the CSA, as it included TWO kinds of kale, and, well, weeds--the kind of weed I always hated seeing in the garden the most, in fact: purslane. It doesn't taste too bad, actually. But still ... almost everything was a leaf, only one root (not one kind of root but one root, a kohlrabi bulb--which is great, I just wish there was more of it). I'm missing the beets and turnips. Today included even my least favorite kind of lettuce (romaine), which was uncommonly dirty.

Ah, well; this is the first disappointing week yet, and I expect things are about to really start picking up, with soon tomatoes and corn and peppers, oh my! And the fruit share is finally starting up. This week it was apricots! Yeee! Plus peas!!

While working on my pinch hit for Summergen, I was reminded of a fic I wrote about a year ago that I guess I forgot to put on AO3. So I uploaded it, and got two comments on it (!! Uncommon for me to get comments on AO3), both of which really seemed to connect to my fic. Feeling like anyone connects to me at all in this world, or to anything I say or do, is incredibly rare for me. I starve for it pretty much all day every day. So thanks to these comments, I'm actually feeling good about life at the moment.

And Summergen is here! And gishwhes on its way! YASS.

Yeah, definitely not the best week of produce. *shouts* That's enough greens! :-) But as you say, one disappointing week so far is a pretty good track record! and YUMMY peas and apricots!

And hurray for Life Is What Happens to You on Ao3! The connection and attention is SO WELL DESERVED. Such a wonderful fic. So MANY wonderful fics. You're amazing. <3 <3 <3

and yes, YAAAAAAY summergen and EVEN MORE YAY GISHWHES!!!!! :-D

Mmm yeah, I feel like early summer is probably a rough time for farm-fresh produce... But yes you're right! The summer bounty is coming sooooon!!!

And huzzah about comments and really connected feedback on old fic. <3 Which one was it?

Last month (I think) I got a kudos/comment on a fic I wrote in 2012 that had had no feedback up until that moment. IT WAS SO EXCITING!!! Finally, little fic, you time came. Someone read you!!

Oooh, that sounds interesting! Link? :D


My fic was told from Meg Masters's POV, working with the theory that as demons hop bodies, pieces of the vessel's consciousness come along for the ride--so Meg Masters is telling the story of herself, demon Meg, and then human Meg 2.0's consciousness, too. It was basically what Meg Masters thought about all that. (And it was told in the first-person.) So like, I DO UNDERSTAND WHY THIS WOULD NOT BE FANDOM'S CUPPA, utterly and completely. XDD But I was still very happy that it finally found its reader!! (Or its first AO3 reader. iirc I think two people read it on LJ when it was first posted, too.)

How wonderful! Whenever one of my fics gets a comment I'm set for the day. Some of the comments on my Swiss Army Man fics, either on AO3 or Tumblr, have brought me to tears. They have nowhere NEAR the audience for my SPN or House fics. My SPN fic "Slash Fiction" gets the most hits, for obvious reasons.

Congratulations!
