After much internal debate and a serious look at my schedule for November, I've decided to participate in this year's NaNoWriMo to (hopefully) give me a kick in the pants to work on a novel idea I've been kicking around for a while. I'm locutus over there (as a brand new account because I've somehow forgotten the username/email I've used in the past), so feel free to shame me if (when) I don't reach 50k by the end of November.

I've decided to put these two episodes together because my thoughts on them are quite brief and, well, there's better bits of Trek out there to nerd over.

Hi, y'all. It's been a while since I've last posted here. I got caught up in the job hunt to little success, and I need to blow off some steam. Anyways, I'd like to introduce you to someone special to me.

A dwarf hotot rabbit

This is Bunerys, First of Her Name, Queen of All She Surveys. ;)

Okay, so that might've been a little over dramatic, but her name really is Bunerys - a pun on Daenerys Targaryen of ASOIAF / GoT fame (You can't really tell in the picture, but her eyes are bright blue).

She's a dwarf hotot rabbit, adopted from a friend of mine who found her running wild (!) after supposedly escaping a backyard breeder. She was about six years old when I got her, and she's been with me for about three years now, which makes her pretty old for a rabbit. She's been kind of sick recently but is on the mend, so this is an old picture of her until she's feeling better.

Anyways, I felt like this was a nice thing to share on my kind of geeky journal here, so um... Anybody else name their pets after fannish things? (I also have a Goldendoodle named Leeloo after Milla Jovovich's character in The Fifth Element, ha ha.)

Title: Spark to a Fire

Summary: The final fight, against the Dark Side.

Prompt: Against all odds

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: So, this title was based on Poe's speech from the TLJ trailer -- sort of. Also hope this works -- I had a lot to tie up.

Fic under cut. )

My sinuses hurt like crazy still so I'm still spending a lot of my time sleeping off benedryl because it's hay fever season and all the allergens from up North are flying through the air to Florida. Of course I'm also allergic to dust and pet dander and all sorts of fun stuff.

So I've spent most of my time sleeping, reading fanfic, and listening to music and forcing myself to move so I don't get a blood clot. Despite this it's managed to be an exciting week.

I discovered a new recipe that Ian and I loved, that was very healthy and involved spaghetti squash. I always love when a new healthy recipe is a hit. Ian loved it and normally spaghetti squash recipes get a meh.

Ian's giving lectures to my roommate and childhood best friend (Bri) about circuits and electricity because she really wants to leave retail so their seeing if she has a knack for it, so she could maybe get a job as a designer. It's been fun.

Bri got a second job, cleaning houses for a lady that does rental homes here. She'll make some good money and hopefully stop running out of money well before she gets her next paycheck.

She gave me a scare on Monday or Tuesday. First Ian was tired and grumpy at me and then she arrived home and I left my room and chirped at her.

She finished putting her stuff in the fridge. And made eye contact and her eyes looked all bulgy like she was going to kill me. She stomped to her shower and I went into my room to hide because I thought she was made at me. And I didn't come out until I was certain she was asleep.

Later I recieve texts from her and I come out and it's how I found about her second job, she'd told Ian and thought he'd told me and found out that she'd been pissed at her boss from her retail job and thought she'd said hello.

We had a good laugh and I was reassured that she wasn't mad at me. I am having fun teasing her about though.

Childhood best friends if you can't mock one another gently what is years of friendship for?

She still mocks me about the candle incident after all.

It was my birthday and we were walking down the cake aisle and I held up birthday candles and said I wanted something to blow on my birthday. She cracked up. A stock person stocking said aisle looked at me funny. Ian quit coming towards us with drinking supplies and I was confused and then bright red.

And that was five years ago? Perhaps more...

I'm also fascinated in the fact that Europe is getting a hurricane. I didn't know that could happen.

I hope everyone effected takes the appropriate safety precautions and makes sure to have water, food supplies and candles.

And I think I've babbled enough.
