I have written exactly nothing for Barricade Day.  For the second year in a row.  *sigh*

On the upside, I did cave in and buy a ridiculously overpriced ticket to see Les Mis tomorrow.  Since it will be the last time (probably for a long while) that I’ll be able to go see it on Barricade Day.  So, that’s not nothing.

If I am so moved, or I have the energy, I may try to get something written for Monday, since it’s technically still Barricade Day, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.  😛

I also don’t have a special queue planned for tomorrow.

I utterly fail at Barricade Day this year.  -.-;;;  Sorry guys!

“In my defense,” said Courfeyrac, “I didn’t intend to bring it home.”


“In my defense,” said Courfeyrac,
“I didn’t intend to bring it home.”

Marius continued to stare at his
roommate without saying a word.  Finally, he managed to respond,
exasperated, “Then please explain what exactly you intended to do
with it?”

“I merely intended to placate my
father, whose insistence that I marry and carry on the family name is
exhausting; as well you know, I have no intention of passing along
that damned particle.”

“So you intended to give it to
someone with whom you have no chance of… of procreating.”

Courfeyrac grinned as he held out the
ring, “So, may I take that as a yes?”

I was going to sit down and do some writing today.  Then my mom called and got me all stressed out about a stupid thing because my response (that I didn’t know if I could do the thing she wanted me to do because I’d never done it before and have never given her any indication that it is a Thing I Do) stressed HER out and that’s clearly ALL MY FAULT because I Always Do That. 

And I opened the fic file anyway (it was FYFM chapter 19, BTW) and reread what I wrote last night and I’m sitting here thinking, “OMFG THAT IS SO OOC, WTF IS WRONG WITH ME, WHY DID I THINK THAT WAS OK TO WRITE?” and then I realized that it ISN’T OOC for how I’ve been writing these characters for the whole damned FIC, it’s just that THIS WAS AN E/R PART AND REQUITED E/R JUST READS AS SO OOC TO ME NOW AND HOW AM I EVER GOING TO FINISH THIS FIC IF I CAN’T GET MY HEAD AROUND E/R ANYMORE?
