I done stole this from spencer5460

1.     Where did you begin 2016? At home.

2. Did you have to go to the hospital? No.

3. Did you have any encounters with the police? Yes. But as I am white and female it was only mildly embarrassing instead of being terrifying. The cemetery in my town is a popular place for walkers (not zombies, but people who like to get exercise via walking), and in the middle of July, I prefer to walk at 2:00 AM. (Because it’s hot AF). Well, apparently the cemetery closes at midnight, so I got caught, had to show my I.D., was asked to leave.

4. Where did you go on vacation? British Columbia and Michigan.

5. What did you purchase that was over $500? I bought a car, plane tickets, and snow tires. Also tuition.

6. Did you know anybody who got married? Yes.

7. What sporting events did you attend? None.

8. What concerts/shows did you go to? None. (Damn, I need to get out more).

9. Where do you live now? Wyoming

10. Describe your birthday: I don’t really celebrate, though I know I was off work, because it was over the Thanksgiving holiday, so I’m sure it was spent reading, writing, working out, surfing the internet.

11. What’s the one thing you thought you would never do, but did in 2016? I saw some bears in the wild and managed not to soil myself. I literally stepped in a pile of bear shit and thought to myself “wow, that’s an awfully large cow pile. Wait, I’m in British Columbia, that’s not cow shit.” Two days later I had to maneuver the car around a bear that was crossing the road and had no interest in stopping. Why did the bear cross the road? Because it mother-fucking can. Because it’s a bear. Bears have no fucks to give.

12. What’s something you learned about yourself? See my AMA post.

13. Any new additions to your family? No. Only some losses.

14. What was your best month? Probably May. I had transferred from the high school to the alternative high school and graduation, for the first time in my career, was much more personal, given the nature of alternative high schools.

15. What music will you remember 2016 by? I never remember songs by the year. But maybe Beyonce’s “Daddy Lessons”.

16. Made new friends? No.

17. Favorite night out? Had some good ones with my favorite coworkers (both of whom either got transferred or quit, of course).

18. Any regrets? I’m not sure. I kind of wish I had showed less deference at work, though I probably was correct to show the amount of deference I did show.

19. What do you want to change in 2017? My overall health.

20. Overall, how would you rate this year? Well, it was difficult at times, but ultimately I came out stronger.

21. Other than home, where did you spend most of your time? At work, of course.

22. Change your hairstyle? No

23. Buy a new car? Yes. It’s a 2015, but new to me, obvs. Also the newest car I have ever owned.

24. Any car accidents? No

25. How old did you turn this year? 35

26. Do you have a New Year’s resolution? No. I make changes as I see fit (or try to) irrespective of the time of year. New Year’s resolutions also place too much pressure.

27. Do anything embarrassing? Of course. Screwing up at work, looking like a n00b while traveling, the aforementioned encounter with the police.

28. Be honest - did you watch American Idol? I don’t have a TV.

29. Start a new hobby? No.

30. Will you be happy to see 2016 go? No. 2017 could be worse. In fact, I suspect it will be.

31. Been naughty or nice? Both. Nice on the surface, dark as fuck sometimes beneath the surface.

You have 7 missed Voicemails (1322 words) by kapachiramasama
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Check Please! (Webcomic)
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Eric Bittle/Jack Zimmermann, Shitty Knight & Jack Zimmermann
Characters: Shitty Knight, Eric Bittle, Jack Zimmermann

Shitty calls Jack a lot, and leaves a lot of voice mails behind, because that's what best friends do.

Because sometimes, a fanfic is so unexpectedly brilliant, so pure, that you just have to rec it immediately:

“Dude I just saw the biggest fucking bird in the world. Holy shit, you should have seen this fucking. Like the size of a fucking tire. Jesus, I think it was carrying a fucking dog in it’s talons. I’ll send you a picture I took, but goddamn. I think it was like a pigeon or something? I don’t know. But hey I’m driving down tonight with Bitty so call me if our plans changed. Love you, kid,”

“I bet. It’s okay, Shits, I’m here now,” He said, patting Shitty awkwardly on the back. Shitty squeezed his best friend even tighter, rubbing his face into his sweater.

“Oh my God, I missed you so much,” He mumbled into Jack’s chest. Jack laughed.

“Ha ha, I missed you too,” Jack said honestly, even though it had been less than two weeks. Before Bitty, all skin to skin contact was exclusively with Shitty, and had been completely platonic. Sometimes you just need hour long cuddles that didn’t give you a boner.

“Do you think it’ll scar?” He asked.

“Your bruise? Don’t think so,” Shitty buried his face in Jack’s sweater again.

“Oh my god you smell like cinnamon and dreams,” He mumbled.


“Your haircut makes you look like a Calvin Klein model from heaven,”

“Okay, I’ll take your word for it,”

“You hug like a father of four who genuinely wants his kids to know they’re loved,”

sl_walker said "Rec five of your favorite fanworks (any fandom) and tell everyone what you love about them."  I thought to myself "What a great idea." The theme is fanworks that capture what is so great about fanworks, beyond just great story-telling (and they're all stories because that's how I roll and because I am inarticulate, generally, when it comes to art).
