Maybe I should update this occasionally! [Mar. 31st, 2012 at 12:18 am]
exackitically two days slow
[music |"Spooky Mormon Hell Dream" from The Book of Mormon]

And not in a locked post, even!

My brother and I moved into a house with his engaged friends at the end of February, and all-in-all it's going fine. They have three cats, which can be weird with how stealthy they are. I'll, like, toss something on the bed, turn back to the computer, turn around again ten seconds later and SURPRISE cats on the bed. They're planning something! I know it!!

On the job front, I started applying to outside companies and actually got a response! And a phone interview! I'm supposed to hear about a one-on-one interview next week, apparently. I found out today, however, that two editors at my current job are leaving their positions (one to an expanding team and another quitting) so there'll be two openings. Surely one of these will be fruitful for me. SURELY. At least in the meantime my current company did a "market evaluation" and pretty much everyone's salary got a bump.

On the fanfic front, I am still actually working on How You Sleep. I definitely want to finish it before this sudden surge of being-an-adult takes me over. :P

It's good to see you update! I'll keep my fingers crossed that something good happens with your career soon. :D

I'm glad you found a place to live - it's so freaking difficult to find affordable places for rent. And YAY JOBS OPPORTUNITIES! \o/ I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. :D

And also yay fic! I'm still planning on finishing mine, too. (I'm kind of kicking myself for starting another project in a different fandom - probably could have been done by now. Ah, well.) It makes me sad, though, because I think you and I might write the last Mylar fics ever. :(

We looked at so many houses and the ones we kept putting in for kept getting swept up by higher offers, ugh. The house we wound up in is actually right next door to the place my brother used to live with one of our other roommates, right before our townhouse stint. haha

Thanks for the positive thoughts. :)

I'll definitely feel weird next time I post on the tumbleweed farm of mylar_fic. At least I know people have signed up for story alerts on ff.net?

Ha ha, I was all "wait, how'd you get that fic up on ff.net with their anti-NC-17 policy?" And looks like that isn't the case anymore! I wonder when that happened. I might actually make an account there again.

I just figured the fic wasn't quite explicit enough to qualify for NC-17 over R (or whatever ratings they use now). And that even if I misjudged it, I think they still rely on readers reporting stuff like that. haha

I think "M" is equal to "NC-17." They don't seem to have any guidelines as to what the ratings entail. And yeah, they probably don't exactly comb through every submitted story.

I had an account there waaaaay back in the day and it was a huge kerfluffle when they decided to take "adult" fic down and I deleted all of my incredibly embarrassing stories in fear. And ahaha, looks like my account is still up there, but I don't remember the password. I guess it's a new pseud for me!

ETA: Oh wait, I found their guidelines after all. I guess MA is their NC-17, and M is R. I think. Oh, ratings.
