 This was... kind of a weird week. And also possibly the most fic I’ve written in a single week ever? Certainly since I started keeping track. Soooo. That happened. Not to the benefit of anything I was writing or even planning to write before this week, but yay! writing! 

Words written this week: 21,997 (I KNOW RIGHT)

WIPs that got words this week:

Born in the Blood: 401

Underage Geralt/Original Witcher Characters: 649

Emhyr/Geralt Story I Really Wasn’t Planning On Writing Until I’d Seen More Than Three Minutes of Emhyr Canon But What Can You Do: 20,947, which, uh, is all of it, give or take revising (and sequels, shut up, this situation is completely under control). WHAT HAPPENED IS, I hadn’t written anything Monday or Tuesday of this week due to Life Stuff and on Wednesday I sat down and started working on some tricky stuff with my current werewolf book which turned into just being Stuck pretty quickly, so I was like “you know, this week has been stressful, I’m not getting anywhere with this, I’m gonna just let myself write down some dialogue for this Emhyr/Geralt bunny that I’m definitely not writing but can’t stop thinking about” and then what I actually did was start writing the actual story from the beginning and just... keep going for 6,000 words, after which I grabbed some dinner and went home and ... wrote another 4,000 words before going to bed. (I... don’t know if I’ve ever written 10k of anything in a day before? Ever?) And then I just... kept... going over the next few days until it was finished. So. That happened? :D?

Also in my defense the three minutes of Emhyr canon I have seen consist of (Emperor of the North and South, conquering (anti)hero) Emhyr a) getting in Geralt’s personal space to make intense eye contact and talk about how insolent he is and b) asking Geralt to track down his (Emhyr’s) daughter and sole heir, who is also Geralt’s daughter (and who likes Geralt better) because reasons, and Geralt refusing to take Emhyr’s money for the job because this is about protecting Ciri. What more canon does a pairing need, I ask you.

 Kind of on a roll! Going someplace! Several places!

Also I officially gave up on playing Witcher 2 and am moving on to Witcher 3 which means CIRI AND EMHYR AND ESKEL CANON INCOMING, I CAN WRITE MORE WITCHER STUFF SOON!!! Because I, you know. Needed more Witcher stuff to write?!

Words written this week: 6,081

WIPs that got words this week:

Born in the Blood: 1,139

Underage Child Soldier Omega!Bucky/Alpha!Cap!Steve Marriage of Last Resort Fic: 747

Marvel Trumps Hate Bucky/Steve First Time Fic: 435

Underage Geralt/Original Witcher Characters: 1,092

Eskel/Geralt Fic for the FanWorksCon 2019 “Ignite” Zine: 2,668, because I saw the zine announcement and was like “huh, Ignite, I wonder what I could--” and the first thing that occurred to me was of course Igni, which is the name of the sign witchers use to summon fire, and Eskel is really good at using the magic signs and, uh, yeah, kinky magical fireplay is happening now. :D :D :D

 Another pretty good week! Although I started listening to the Sharing Knife audiobooks and, guess what, I still love this series enough for everyone, and I keep not wanting to do anything but listen to more audiobook. But! I did remember to detach myself long enough to post this!

Words written this week: 6,101

WIPs that got words this week:

Born in the Blood: 802

Underage Child Soldier Omega!Bucky/Alpha!Cap!Steve Marriage of Last Resort Fic: 690

Marvel Trumps Hate Bucky/Steve First Time Fic: 1,116, turning the corner from sad to Deeply Awkward! Yay progress! :D

Underage Geralt/Original Witcher Characters: 3,493, and if I could stop! having! new! ideas! for things to cram into this fic and into the continuity stemming from it, that would be GREAT. (It is over 19,000 words and the fourth of six chapters is... definitely less than half over, ye gods.)

I had an actually pretty good writing week, despite assorted disruptions! And also I have been offered a smol job, which is pretty exciting, because. Money! Money is so nice.

Writing is also nice! And so is that New Fandom Energy, hooboy.

Words written this week: 7,163

WIPs that got words this week:

Born in the Blood: 694, and holy crap this is the last chapter?? This story is gonna for real get finished???

Underage Child Soldier Omega!Bucky/Alpha!Cap!Steve Marriage of Last Resort Fic: 190

Sad WWII Bucky/Steve Fic: 201

Underage Geralt/Original Witcher Characters:  4,323, and it’s creeping up on 16k and I’m not quite half done, so, uh, hooray for making a big entrance into a new fandom, I guess? Hope you like all the, you know... pederasty.

Fluffy Eskel/Geralt Teenage Shenanigans: 1,755, definitely based on a worldbuilding thought experiment and not at all on my desperation to not have my second fic in this fandom be 30k of pederasty.

 I would just like you all to know that I have had SEVERAL terrible ideas for Witcher fic that I haven’t started writing yet, okay. LOTS.

Words written this week: 5,768

WIPs that got words this week:

Underage Child Soldier Omega!Bucky/Alpha!Cap!Steve Marriage of Last Resort Fic: 102

Marvel Trumps Hate Bucky/Steve First Time Fic: 929, and we have turned the corner! I think! It probably won’t be sad anymore after this!! (Probably!)

Slavefic #7: 258

Underage Geralt/Original Witcher Characters: 4,479, mostly from one day where I got on a roll and wrote 3600 words of the worst stuff that happens to Geralt in this story in the course of a few hours. I haven’t done that in a while, so that burst of writing flow and momentum was really enjoyable. SORRY, GERALT.
