It is sooooo fucking hot and dry here, all month. This is the second year in a row we haven't had Juneuary--normally Seattle doesn't get summer till after Independence Day. Most of us don't have air conditioning here, and my house just doesn't cool down. I can't sleep. (Thanks, climate change.)

I try not to look at my AO3 dashboard very much, because it's just too fucking depressing to be confronted with that all the time. But when I was posting the last of the kissfics I noticed that in my list of fandoms at the top, which I don't think I've looked at in forever, Marvel Cinematic Universe and Captain America have overtaken Buffy and X-Files as my most-fanworked fandoms. I guess nothing makes a more emphatic statement about how much Captain America has taken over my life than that. (Thanks, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, for eating my brain and ruining my life.)

And I mean, I was never as prolific in other fandoms as many people I knew were (and most of my older vids aren't posted on AO3), but for me, that was a large output of fanworks, especially because I'd given up on my real life writing at some point before I found fandom (thanks, relationship with emotion-sucking partner). And then after sis_r died, even fan writing dried up for me, so outside of Yuletide, I didn't post anything fic-wise until an MCU Avengers little thing with Loki and Pepper hanging out together keeping vigil. I was never into the huge fandoms of the past fifteen years that most people I knew were. With the MCU/Avengers vids, that pushes the Marvel Cinematic Universe up ahead of Captain America, but I always feel like I should tag fic with MCU. Anyway, I still have story ideas, so I guess that number will keep climbing. More than 200,000 words so far, which kind of boggles my mind, considering how long it was in between the Loki & Pepper thing and the Pacific Rim stories, which is when I really got jump-started back into fanfic. (Thanks, Steve and Bucky and Sam and Natasha and Peggy and everyone else, for all those words.)

If only more than, like, ten people were actually interested in the writing. It's hard, sometimes, to feel motivated to keep putting them down. Easier to just leave them in my head.
