Happy (Gregorian) New Year's, folks! 2010 out, 2011 is in, and I am glad. It's been an intense year.

Also, Yuletide author reveals are up! I wrote Idiots are always moving forward, a Hayate x Blade fic for Sumiregawa. There's femslash (Sae/Akira, hints of others), Takarazuka references, dancing, plotting, and general shenanigans! I had a blast writing it (when I wasn't tearing out my hair).

And while we're talking fic, let's do that meme. In 2010, I wrote:

* Untitled Arhur/Eames drabble (Inception)

* Idiots are always moving forward (Hayate x Blade)

* Untitled Yusuf/Saito drabble (Inception)

* The Coffeehouse Crossover Confrontation (Middleman/Losers)

* Masks, Robots, Coffee (A ZapBamPow Exclusive Interview) (Sky High)

For a total of...9,575 words. A personal finished, posted, non-original fic best!

I put serious thought into writing another 500 words of something last night, after posting that second Inception drabble. Get my word count up to 10,000 just in time for the new year. I decided to play Mirror's Edge and watch Castle with my family instead. I don't regret it :D Besides, 10,000 words makes a great goal for 2011.

Other things I want to do in the new year. )

Like I said up top, 2010 was a hard year. My grandparents are doing badly, my job's exploitative, and I've struggled a lot with anxiety and depression. BUT.

It's also been a good year. My family and friends have been spared the worst of the financial crisis, I've got a job to complain about, I got a second awesome roommate, I learned a shit ton about social justice issues, I've been more active in fandom than I've ever been before.

There was a lot of good in 2010, and I'm glad of it. It's finally fucking over and I'm glad of that, too.

So it's about noon, New Year's Day, and I'm at my parent's ranch with my siblings and my sister's boyfriend. Mom and Dad are in New Orleans for their anniversary. And this happened (I told Twitter first):

special_effex: Jesus fucking christ. You guys. YOU GUYS.
special_effex: The excitement we just had at the Effex household, you wouldn't believe.
special_effex: I just. My sister was coming up from the barn and these folks came down the driveway, told her a corgi had gotten hit up by the road.

Putting the rest under a cut, WARNING for human and animal harm )

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME is still my general mental state.
