Hi, and welcome to my journal! You found me!

Here are some other places you can find me:

AIM: beingagreenmum

my fic at AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/users/Green
livejournal: (same content as DW) http://undeny.livejournal.com

you can find my art/icon/graphics credits here @ pinboard

my fic on DW is all tagged.

Friend/defriend at will. Access or none, it's all good.


Feel free to podfic, illustrate, make banners, translate, write sequels or remix my fics. Feel free to write fic for my art. Do whatever you want. Just link back to the original, okay?

So I'm giving blanket permission to make transformative works of my (solo) transformative works -- you don't have to ask! I would prefer you tell me where you've posted so I can squee about it, though, and thank you very much for choosing to do something with my stuff.

EDIT, taken from [personal profile] teaotter's policy:

Additionally, for podficcers:

If you ever need to change words/omit dialogue tags/add dialogue tags/bend, fold, spindle or punch holes in one of my fics for better podficcing purposes, please do so at will! If you do, please give yourself credit for it, wherever you would normally have notes: "this fic is by [author] with (additions/alterations/ease-of-podfic transformations/contributions/however you want to describe it) by [your name]", or "adapted for podfic by [you] from a work by [author]" or whatever variation works for you.

Happy Birthday to one of my best friends in the world, [personal profile] schemingreader!!!

(copied from a message to [personal profile] majoline, 'cause I really didn't want to type it out again)

I was madly in love with Derek Hale (at least, he looked like Derek and I was calling him Derek, but he wasn't Derek)

but everyone seemed to think I was in love with my ex, Thomas
and people were planning this weird thing
where I'd run off to Washington (no idea why) but along the way, my car would overheat
and Thomas would save me
and then we'd be together from then on
and the whole time I was thinking,

"this is so WEIRD, I don't even LIKE him, I just want to be with Derek, I've got to find Derek and talk to him..."
and also, people kept giving me credit cards so I'd have gas on this monumental road trip
but I was secretly going to ATM machines and just getting all the cash I could
so that if Derek rejected me, I could disappear with all the untraceable cash
and I wouldn't be forced into being with Thomas for the rest of my life

I woke up while I was searching for Derek during my going away party

so basically I have no control over my life, or I'm searching for control, or I'm scheming to be happy despite everyone else's "good intentions". or whatever.

I seem to be better at making notes and outlining than doing actual writing.

But anyway, I have two fics in a series plotted out, plus a couple of ideas for side stories in the same 'verse.

I only have 4668 actual words of it written, but that's still writing, right?
green: "if I don't write to empty my mind I go mad" (text: write or go mad)
today so far I have written over a thousand words. sometimes that seems like very little but today that seems like a hell of a lot! :D

I am hoping to write more once Meg goes to bed for the night, but even if that doesn't happen I will be completely cool with today's output. (right?)

people - other people, who are not me - do more than one thing in a day.

not that I did less than two things today.

I cooked and watched one very short video and made a short list of things to buy for the house.

I made a post asking for help on something.

I found a story I want to read and read about 1/5 of it.

I texted Dominica 4 times but didn't get an answer.

I made a short post in my online course's forum.


I would have liked to do other things. like watch more of the videos (these are for an online course that just started today, and I am already behind). and write - I would have liked to write a bit.

I would like to point to what I did already and say 'that. that is enough.'

but woe.

I've been looking online at different free mood diaries, but I'm getting a little overwhelmed and would like to have a shorter list to look at.

Does anyone use any (free) mood software (PC/Windows) that has helped at all? I need something with entries for multiple moods per day and also different meds.

It can be downloadable software or a service/site I could sign up for. Either one.

Thank you in advance.

so, I'm doing... weirdly?

I got a bee in my bonnet about doing non-fannish bloggy stuff. like, different than the stuff I already do.

so then I decided I needed a whole new IDENTITY in order to do it, and that led to somehow reinventing the wheel.

and now I hate everything having to do with tumblr and I am going to take a break from thinking.

ok, I'm not actually passing a hat this time. I will pay you back on the 1st! But I need $25 so I'll have enough to get my med tomorrow or tuesday at the latest.


anybody want to send me a few bucks with the guarantee of getting it back on the 1st? doesn't have to be the whole 25, a few dollars here or there would really help.

(I went a few days without the meds to see if I could do without, hoping I could hold out on my own until the 1st... it didn't work out well for me OR my brain.)

(post is open in case you want to direct someone here who can help)

(thank you, and I'm really really sorry I keep doing this)

paypal is anthony.melissa@rocketmail.com

BIG HONKING EDIT: thanks to my flist, I now have the money to buy my meds tomorrow. THANK YOU. I'm so grateful for you guys and your generosity. I've been blessed.

I was looking through [site community profile] dw_community_promo (as one does) and came across this comm: [community profile] allbingo. and then I found a link to a bingo card generator: http://an.owomoyela.net/fun/bingo_generator

It looked cool, and then I played with it a bit, and came up with this card. (note: I used the "Themes" and "Motif tropes" to generate prompts)

card for allbingo )

No idea how far I'll get with this, but it seems cool, and the comm seems really relaxed and right now I need that. :)

Today I spent time outside, in the sun and fresh air, completely voluntarily.

And then I called and left a message with that therapist my doc has been trying to get me to set an appointment with.

And in a bit, I will for the first time in my life attempt to make sushi rice.

(oh, and at some point in the past 24 hours I made an icon I am not ashamed of!)

(actually, it's a little... well, less nice than I would have liked, but I am still acclimating to Photoshop after using PSP almost exclusively for over a decade)

this morning I woke up with a fic bunny!

(not that I'll write it, but it's nice to have an actual creative idea for a change.)

AND I got up at 8:30 instead of some wayyyyy late time.

and then I had coffee with mom and I was able to hold a conversation without withdrawing like a turtle or getting as prickly as a porcupine. I think I should get some points for that.
green: (labyrinth: dance with me)
It's pretty amazing that somehow after all this time, I've never actually made or used a 'physical health' tag. I have my 'my back hurts' tag, but nothing about any other physical complaints, just my pain. Huh.

But then I have to add the 'mental health' tag, because it's tied together.

VERTIGO, my friends, has come upon me once again. (not Hitchcock's kind)

I've had bouts of it over the years (the worst case of it I ever had was shortly after 9/11), and it's always because of some kind of upset in my emotions. If I cry too hard, BOOM, I get dizzy, and the dizziness might last for days. Usually it's manageable, but the previously mentioned 2001 case was debilitating. I could not move from my bed without assistance, and when I didn't get that assistance (thanks, asshole!) I ended up crawling on my knees to the bathroom in order to throw up. Nice, huh? (it should be mentioned that I was in my 3rd trimester and 9/11 was also Dad's bday, and he'd died a couple of months before. so there were many negative factors contributing to my state)

This time around, it's not nearly as bad. (and I am SO grateful for that!) But it has been going on for a few days now, and it isn't getting better.

If it gets any worse, I'll go to the doc and get some Antivert. Or tests. Or whatever. Sometimes it goes away on its own and I really don't have the money for another doctor visit this month. Or more meds. I know there are some exercises I can try at home to maybe lessen the problem, but UGH. They make you dizzy in order to make you less dizzy. I'm trying NOT to be dizzy, you know? :( I'm such a coward.

*doc with mom
*coding, whee!
*at least one episode of GK
*dishes, woes.
*big ole pot of copycat panera mac & cheese
*big ole pot of collards

(making a list means I'm more likely to do these things, right?)

ETA: strikeouts, because right now my fridge is very very full and making mac & cheese + collards will result in a lot of leftovers I have no room for. unless I froze them. which I don't want to do. so for dinner tonight I will still make steak, but I will pair it with small sides - mashed potatoes and carrots, I think.

ETA2: have been to doc, but mom has said she'd rather have a sub sandwich than steak for dinner. I am disappointed, but she's right in that we shouldn't let the sandwich (which I snagged from the deli dept) go off.

basically, I just need to do some dishes today, and fold some clothes, and the rest is gravy.

Have I mentioned that I'm against capital punishment?

So basically I don't really know what I'm talking about but I'm still angry about it. And that's pretty normal for me.
