A/N. OMG. It's been forever since I've updated this story. My profuse and profound apologies to anyone still interested in this thing. LOL I'm so sorry. If you're still reading, thanks so much. And if I've lost anyone along the way, I only have myself to blame. Let's hope this doesn't suck too badly. This puppy is almost done. Probably one more chapter. Thanks to anyone still out there who's hanging in with me on this. *hugs*

My old car was bleeding me. It was paid for, but in recent months I've spent more than the monthly car payment just to keep fixing whatever new thing was wrong. The last straw was when the engine light went on, and I had to take it in to get it fixed, spending over $200. The month before that was over $300 for a different problem. There was more work that needed to be done, but I was thinking.. um.. NO. I'm not doing this, and I don't want to be driving anything unreliable. So off to Carmax I went. Here's the new baby. A 2008 Mazda 3 Hatchback.
And, I think my older dog Logan is finally getting used to the new pup, Rayne... either that, or he just wants to use her as a pillow. (She's only 3 months old.. yeah, she's going to be huge!) She's always wanting to play with him, but he's 13 now, and usually doesn't have much interest in childish games.. you can almost hear him scoff and think, "Go away, child."
Back to work on Monday.

Summary: Oliver loves when Chloe relinquishes control.
A/N: I'm a bit rusty, but here's a oneshot I wrote tonight, partly in protest to comic mythos! LOL

Some of you may remember that this past October, we had to put my ten year old Belgian Tervuren to sleep because she was very sick. It was so crushing and sad for all of us. Over the past month or so my kids have been talking about wanting a new baby girl to love, so I relented, and we brought home our German Shepherd puppy today. She'll be three months old next week, all black, very sweet, a little shy still as she's getting used to us, but very friendly. And HUGE. Here are a few pics! Say hello to Rayne. :)
( More puppy pics under the cut! )
I remember seeing news footage of the 1968 Democratic Convention riots in Chicago. I was five years old then. It scared me shitless. People acting crazy, and cops beating people with nightsticks, and mayor Daley saying something stupid about it. Even my five year old brain thought, the world is a messed up place, isn't it?
OMFG! My ship. My ship is starting! Finally! Yes, the Non-canon, non-comic, non-couple that I've shipped for a long time is finally starting. Anyone who doesn't think these two have smoking chemistry needs to check their pulse. She takes her shoes off and she's so tiny next to him! hahaha.. SPOILER WARNING FOR ANYONE WHO HAS NOT WATCHED THE EPISODE!
ETA: Here's a quickie music vid that Jenna made of this scene:
I've been sick for three weeks (a nasty case of bronchitis). Three freakin' weeks of my vacation spent coughing my head off, with Mucinex and Robitssin DM as constant companions. I get to go back to work on Monday, with barely a voice to teach. I'm sure my students will love that I currently sound like a 90 year old five-pack-a-day smoker. What really sucks is that I can't sing in the car without sounding like a demonic squeak toy.
I have to write lesson plans tonight. Blah.
New Year's resolution: Get back to the gym... once I stop coughing, that is.
Fandom Rant: Celebrate your show, your favorite characters, your favorite 'ships, sing their praises to the heavens, dance and squee and flail till you drop, but for the love of all that is holy, do it without bashing other characters, actors, fans, or 'ships, especially in the more general fandom areas. (What you say in your own designated places is your business, have at it). Is it really that hard to play nice? Thanks. It's just something about fandoms in general that I will never understand. I mean, it's supposed to be fun, right? Right? Stop the hatin', people.
And because I can't post this enough: Some time ago, my friend, the lovely laurelnola discussed the power of the male British accent on the American female ear. Welllll...... goodness, (thanks to umigame I love you forever for this) wouldn't you know? Click here--> BRADLEY JAMES DOES VOICEOVERS!!! Holy shit, I'd buy an iPhone, a Vodaphone, and join the military for this man, if only he'd talk to me all day long and read me bedtime stories at night (*ahem*). I seriously got all squishy and melty inside just listening to him. I think I ovulated. *puddle of goo* I'm seriously going to download those and put them in my iPod... whenever I get one.
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year celebration, and that the coming year brings many good and beautiful things your way. *hugs entire Flist, but not too closely; I don't want you to catch my cough*
