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'm mad that I had a whole plan two weeks ago for how this scene in my fic was going to play out that I've now forgotten, but I just wrote a *really* good line so I suppose that evens it out

My boyfriend, talking about his current fic project: It's not going to be that long, only about ten chapters.

Me, who has never completed a multichapter fanfic in her life: "only"????

Obviously the overall length depends on how long each individual chapter is, but still, 10 chapters is a fair number by anyone's metric. I know a lot of prolific writers in fandom have skewed ideas about what a "long" fanfic is, I just never expected my boyfriend to be one of them. It's weird.

Melting snow is one of the great tragedies of our times* 😢

*at least here in London where snow is generally light and also a rarity

Younger sister walked into my room, asked if I wanted “a crabapple”

Me: well I didn't manage to get everything done that I wanted to this evening, but at least I am going to bed prompt-

*looks at the clock, sees that it's already midnight*

-er. Prompt-er than usual. 😅

This isn't quite "my dash did a thing", but I appreciate the fact that this bi validation post was followed by an ad for a chair that seems specifically tailored to bi people and our weird ways of sitting

I got a good night's sleep last night and don't feel stressed currently, but my right eye keeps twitching, which is probably not a good sign.

January/February has felt like one endless slog so far - can't wait for my week's holiday the week after next...

Update: I am back from the Post Office and much damper because it was raining on me the whole way there and back. But I Adulted successfully.

The guy behind the counter tried to sell me broadband, which was a bit weird, but I get that it's his job and he probably doesn't have much choice in the matter. Also, apparently the Post Office does broadband now.

Kind of want to spend all day today in my pyjamas.

Even though I was planning to make a trip to the Post Office...

Me: *sends a single email*

I think that's enough productivity for the next hour

Me: I should get other stuff out of the way so that I have time to work on my fic this evening!

Also me: procrastinates endlessly instead of writing fic 🙈

4:15pm, still no work but Twitter informs me that Barbie is bi and has had a girlfriend since 2017

work? did you mean

singing along to the Red Hot Chili Peppers all afternoon

In the past few months, I have finally got around to watching Sense8 (season 1), watched a season and a half of Suits, and have just started watching White Collar. If there ever was a time to catch up on shows I've never seen...

Tis the night before Christmas, and I've finished editing my Yuletide! Hooray! And I feel really happy with the final result ☺️

In the process of reworking the ending, it somehow grew 1,700ish additional words, so the final wordcount was more than 15,000. Then after an edit where I trimmed a couple of things, it came to 14,999 😆 I'm really tempted to find somewhere to add an extra word and have a round 15,000, but I'm also lazy and need to stop fiddling with it xD

Twitter screenshot, not a dunk I promise, cyberpunk 

Someone pointed out that the dude that pioneered cyberpunk as a genre is on Twitter and I've been never more happy to see someone retweet a very particular post

My actual number of notes: 1

Why does Tumblr do this to me constantly?

(These are all old notes, for the record)

Sneezing is such a gross activity 🤧 Really not into half my face exploding every few minutes

...the formatting I chose for my fic meant I was writing them as pure dialogue with a few "sound effects", and it's hard to convey action in that form. On the edit I think I have some ideas for how to improve things, though.
