Month(s) In Review(s) - April + May 2024


Warning: pet death, grief


Did I intend to make this a 2-month wrap-up?

No. No I did not.

Did it become abundantly clear that I wasn't gonna get April's post done by the end of May?

Yes. Yes it did.



April was awful.

Really.



You know how my criteria for a good month is one where no-one I care about - human or animal - dies, almost dies, or gets a life-changing diagnosis?

April was not a good month.



My beautiful cat died, dearest nerdlets.

And the world feels off without him. There's a hole in my chest.



So most of the rest of April + May has been trying to get used to life without him.

...It still hurts like hell.

That boy was my everything, and I have cried every single day since I lost him.



But I kept going, despite the urge to stay in bed and wail. 

(Turns out I'm frighteningly good at wailing - with frighteningly being the key word. I... did not know I could make that kind of noise. I freaked my parents the hell out.)

So, y'know, if you've got the chance to check out the posts I somehow managed to write despite the separation of my soul from my body, that'd be great... 😅

Friday Fics Fix


Title: F3. Background: kaleidoscopic patterns



The Nature of the Void - A The Umbrella Academy (TUA) fic exploring the nature of death, grief, and the Void


Most of You Aren't Gonna Read This - A The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (TFATWS) horror novella that is extremely well-written. I loved it. I hated it. It's so good.


Because I Am Trash - A TFATWS fic where Sam and Bucky are stuck in an industrial freezer. I stand by my life choices.


Cyberpunk Stucky - In a nutshell: Stucky (Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes from the MCU in a relationship,) as detectives in space. But it's so much more than that. I would legit. buy this as an original novel - it's that good.


Vampires and a Smidge of FrostIron - Everything's better with vampires, right? Plus a little bit of Tony Stark/Loki love.


Klaus' Ghosts In A Specific Trope - I like the fandom-specific trope of Klaus literally showing his demons to people who deny or minimise them - the emo goblin spaghetti brain very much likes, OK?


Bucky's A Literal Demon and Sam's A Literal Angel - TFATWS


So. Freaking. Beautiful - A TUA Klaus/Dave fic with Klaus noticing that, in some lights, Dave's eyes are the exact same shade of blue as his powers, the ghosts, etc. etc. Which leads to a whole lot of introspection from both of them and... it's beautiful.



Nerd Church


Can Books 'Talk' To Us? - Do you think books can send us messages?


It's OK (Just Keep Going) - Brought to you by the art of giving myself a pep talk and then posting it on the internet 😅


My Heart Is Broken... - My beautiful boy is gone. 💔


Random Audiobook Ramblings - Walking is boring and books are awesome


Unpopular Opinion: I've Never Liked Gavin and Stacey - Sorry, not sorry. It feels uncomfortable - like Wales through an English lens.


What Does 'Enough' Even Mean? - Has anyone ever reached ‘enough’?


Things Happen When They Happen - I'm trying to remind myself that, so long as I'm working on things, they'll be ready when they're ready.


I Quit Google AdSense - Because this is way too many hoops to jump through for £7

Month In Review(s) - March 2024

 


March wasn't great.

Not terrible - but then, the bar for terrible is pretty high (or low, depending on your perspective, I guess,) at this point - but not great.

Basically: my mental health sucks at the moment.
