Finally saw Captain America: Civil War, because you know I don't like to just leap into a thing. Anyway, I understand all you Bucky/Cap people. I can see that he's a very attractive character in terms of writing, kind of like early Dean was--all the possibilities.

The movie was fun, could have used some vicious editing. It was nice to see Vision, was a *huge* fan back in the old days, loved that character. I was an angst hoor even in my distant youth, and Vision fit the bill for me. Not as much in the movies, not yet, but here's hoping. :)

Anyhoo, it was fun, and I'm tempted to read some Bucky fics, besides what my beloved writes. Maybe. I still can't see Chris whatisname without thinking that they cast him because they couldn't get Jensen, ha! I've watched a few of those flicks now, and honestly, I think Jensen's the better actor. The better physical actor as well. There must have been something Chris wazizname had that led them to consider him over everyone else, (I'm pretty sure that Ackles was never really in the running, no matter what fandom thinks) but I'm not getting it. He's pleasant enough, just...not quite there for me. Then again, Cap was never a fav of mine to begin with. Whatevs, I like the idea of intense UST between him and Bucky. :D

We're at the Sacramento airport, waiting to fly out to DC to visit our daughter for a week. Yesterday was a frenzy of packing and-- mainly-- trying to finish something up for work before I left. I spent all day reworking that code up through midnight, and it felt SoClose, but no. Got it into a state where others can take it over, though.

The early part of the week was a howl-fest at home, as our son was at UCLA orientation and the cat didn't know what to do with herself. Poor thing-- her boy came home for half a day, but now the whole family is leaving!

Idol news: we're down to the Top 8 of the season, so the end is closing in! My entry is here, with a link to the poll and all other stories. Not crack this week, because I couldn't make the prompt work toward that, but a good story of a different genre. :)

Last weekend was busy. We were gone all day Saturday, traveling for a birthday celebration for my husband's oldest sister. It was bittersweet-- something we wanted to go to, and absolutely needed to, but that sister has early-onset Alzheimer's. She enjoyed having the celebration and seeing everyone, and felt very loved, but there are so many difficulties and frustrations for her that it was also a struggle. She can still walk with assistance, but is unsteady (her balance is increasingly compromised). She struggles with finding words, and people just wait patiently, but for someone who used to be so sharp and conversational, that is hard for her. Processing multiple conversations at once is also hard (so, crowded gatherings stress her), and eating is very difficult. It's just so unfair, and everyone fears the eventual stage where she starts forgetting who we are. So, it was an absolutely must-attend event and was wonderful in many senses, but there was a lot of sorrow toward the future.

With the busy summer (meaning, my office's virtual moratorium on most vacation time), I still haven't gone up to see my family, and need to do that. It may not be until this Fall, after our son goes to college, but I wish I could squeeze it in sooner. I also mourn the missing of blackberry season up in Oregon yet again. I haven't been there for August blackberries in more than 15 years. *sigh*

Well, better turn this thing off soon. I'll check back later this weekend, and find out what you've all been up to!

The Terms of Surrender by [personal profile] dreamlittleyo
Pairing/Rating: Hamilton/Washington, Explicit, Dom/Sub Themes, Pain Kink, Breathplay
Wordcount: 9,300 Words
Summary: Alexander Hamilton wants Washington to claim him. He wants to be held down, used, debased, taken. He is certain his general wants that, too... But Washington isn't making a move.

Which means it's up to Hamilton to open negotiations. If only he had any idea how.

We survived our son's random middle-of-the week massive sleepover party last Wednesday night. It was kind of hot in the space we use as a family room (where the pocket doors can be shut to limit the noise), but it had also been yet another 100-degree day. The boys went out swimming, with many reminders (and one visit) to keep the noise down for the neighbors. Eventually, the 5 or 6 of them that were left were just hanging out in the pool talking quietly for several hours, which sounds like some fears and sadness were getting worked over.

Unexpected as the whole thing was, I'm glad we did it as it really was the last chance for all of them to get together—possibly ever, if we're being honest. Now, three of the boys are on vacation, one has moved to New York, and one went to college early for some late-summer class (he's the oldest in his family, so I'll bet his parents weren't especially happy to have him be gone sooner than necessary!)

Work-work-work the rest of the week. Saturday, we went out of town for a graduation party, and the to/from time and the rest of the weekend were taken up trying to write my Idol story. Which did NOT want to be anything notable. Monday morning, I finally came up with the kind of idea I'd been looking for, and wrote that all the way through Tuesday. That Idol story is here, and there's a link to the poll and the other entries at the bottom. We could use more readers and voters, so please take a look!

Side-effect of all that? The song "Saved By Zero" has been in my head since the prompt came out last Friday...

In this hell we call Sacramento, the heat was > 90-degrees every day in July. Which is to say, > 94-degrees all but two days, and mostly AROUND 100 OR ABOVE. Which will be the case for the foreseeable future, too. I'm seriously dreading the electricity bill. It'll probably be between $300 and $400. /o\

Off to DC at the end of next week, and I don't even have a hotel booked yet. THIS is my life...
