Brief haitus - the actual, official announcement
Basically, in the next four weeks, I have due two short stories and three essays, for which I have done barely any reading or planning.
I haven’t been very active on Tumblr for the last week or so because of this (or active at all, really) and it was stressing me out trying to do both.
So, I’m logging out, I’m deleting the apps on my phone and iPad, and I shall be back in (hopefully) March* (unless I get more essays to write).
*Might pop back if I manage to finish also writing a crack fic I kinda wanna publish before the end of the Glee haitus. But only for that.
same happened to me, it’s glitching
I thought it was suspicious all my friends had apparently abandoned me within the span of ten minutes.
(The sad part is, this won’t stop me from going on Facebook anyway because fUCKING PROCRASTINATION.)
Alright so I’ve basically finished my advent drabbles now and after Hannah’s looked over them I’m just gonna bulk-publish all 21 of them. I’m gonna try and get them posting every half hour but I sometimes suck at technology.
On the upside, I will, in just a few moments, finally be publishing another li’l section of my Mummy crossover! (Because the current scene I’m writing is where it starts diverting a little from the script and I don’t have time right now but I don’t like the completed bit just sitting there.)
Fic: For Who I Am - 7/7
Wordcount: ~9000 (for the entire story)
Summary: Someone who hasn’t quite decided on a name goes shopping for a real suit for the first time, and meets a distractingly attractive tailor. Hijinks ensue. (AKA The genderqueer!Blaine/tailor!Kurt fic.)
Warning: Dysphoria, misgendering (but none in this chapter)
A/N: It’s not very long, but I have been working on this story off and on since October 2012. HUGE THANK YOU to my betas, wowbright, neyronrose, and hungrymonstersdarling, and to the many people who have cheered me on all this time! I appreciate it so much! This story is very close to my heart and Blaine is basically me, so I’m really excited to finally post it! It’s complete and I intend to post a chapter per day for a week.
Also, this story is written in first person, because the main character changes names and pronouns a couple times over the course of the story, and I think having a consistent set of I/me/my pronouns to follow will be easier for most readers.

Fifteen assorted twenty-somethings in vaguely similar shades of blue shirts filed into Kurt’s store ahead of me, more people than I’d ever seen there at one time, and it was actually slightly crowded. And awkward, since the plan was for Kurt to be there, and it was Sugar sitting behind the counter. But as soon as she saw me, she looked over her shoulder toward the back room and yelled: “Kurt! Get your butt out here!”
Oh man, this story was NOT LONG ENOUGH. I’ve been flailing over every single word since chapter one and I can’t believe it’s already over! I am so not surprised at Blaine’s confession – and not even half as giddy as Kurt and Blaine are by the end. I swear, my heart leapt up in my chest when they kissed and it was only be sleeping brother downstairs that stopped me from out loud squealing. I would read a thousand drabbles and one shots in this verse (and then a couple of thousand more) and I wouldn’t get tired of this version of them.
This will definitely, absolutely, 100% be a fic I’m gonna come back to time and time again. <3
Alright, I tidied my room, time for another four day break.
