Pinned toot

Here's something of an introduction: I'm enchantedsleeper, a fandom obsessive with a love of documenting things. I can also be found at @enchantedsleeper where I have all of one (1) follower XD (A dear friend) Fandoms-wise, I'm big into Marvel Cinematic Universe and Harry Potter, but have recently begun dabbling in Arrowverse and Murderbot. I can also be found on AO3, Dreamwidth and Fanlore under this handle <3

I do *like* the idea that I'm working on, and I think I can finish it in time but it's been making me uneasy, in the sense that I think it's the kind of idea that I should have spent longer on and I don't want to do a rush job of it because my exchange deadline is looming.

Two days away from my fic exchange deadline and I'm considering ditching the idea I've written 6k+ of and writing a different short fic for one of my giftee's prompts...

Me getting to a certain scene in my fic: Did I have a plan for how this scene would go?

*checks notes* Looks like I... didn't. Okiedoke xD

millions of insects outside my window at night like β€œhiiiii may i please come inside and die of malnutrition in your lampshade? πŸ₯Ί πŸ‘‰πŸ‘ˆβ€

Emptying a paddling pool is like the feeling you get on the last day of a holiday when you know you have to leave

Does anyone else just... sit and stare at their Works page on AO3 sometimes?

It's probably weird that I do that.

My boyfriend, about his cooking: "I tried to put love in there but it's not really a tangible thing."

excuse me I have something in my eye

(Also, cooking IS love! πŸ›β€οΈ)

I'm very proud of myself for finishing a fic, but I never quite know what to do with the resultant adrenaline afterwards πŸ˜†

"I did the thing! ...Now what?"

Good morning! I'm feeling immeasurably bisexual.


I know that people don't "own" therapists, but it still feels a bit weird to be like "hey, I got a therapist, they're the same one you see!" So I was trying to avoid that by looking elsewhere.

Part of me thinks it's silly to rule out a perfectly good therapy option because my friend sees them as well; but I feel like it's at least something I would need to raise with them first.

And that's even if my friend's therapist has availability! They might not, either :/

There's another thing, which is that on the same directory I found the therapist that my friend sees, and they look SO GOOD - not only are they LGBTQ+ but they specifically mention dealing with asexuality, which my other preferred therapist doesn't mention (which was a bit of a bummer as an ace person, not knowing if that's something they are going to be cool about).

And they're RIGHT IN MY POSTCODE - my friend used to stop by my place after appointments. But. It's my friend's therapist?

*sigh* sooo... after a lot of thought and some encouraging conversations with a friend, I decided to look for a therapist. I went on a directory looking for LGBTQ+ therapists and found someone who seems perfect! She collects plants! She cycles! She likes to hang out at Kew Gardens!

After several days I finally got up the courage to email her, and of course... she has no availability for new clients right now. 😣 She has a slot opening up in August, but it's at 4pm when I'm at work.

I made a run to the Post Office this morning and discovered that we have a new coffee shop on the corner that I've never noticed before, so I stopped by to buy an iced mocha πŸ˜„ Nice way to start my day!

I don't normally spend money on coffee when I can buy it for free at home, but it's nice to be able to support a local independent business 😊 Also, if there's one thing this weather calls for, it's iced coffee... πŸ₯΅β„οΈβ˜•

If you're looking for a goodreads replacement that isn't owned by amazon, and maybe instead run & founded by a Black woman, then Nadia Odunayo has a treat for you! Her new platform The StoryGraph is still in beta but it already seems fully featured, looks & feels great–it has a really clean clear look, filters, half-star rating options, the works! Check it out!

A friend of mine made me some Spider-Man bangles and I love them πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ’™πŸ–€

The level of tired my brain is currently at:

"...Is the 27th June a real date?"

(I had to think about it)

Even as I seek to leave my mark ever more tangibly on the world, I seek to disappear
