I want more fat characters who aren’t comic relief
Naked, Mycroft was a pied thing, all freckles, splotches of pink across his pale chest, sock garters binding his wrists over his head in the back of a taxi.
"Comfortable?" Mike asked.
At Emma Grant’s table at the gridlockdc fanfic workshop I got the prompts: Stamford, Mycroft, bondage, taxi, “It’s on fire.”
Gridlockdc was a really great little con. The fab likecastle very sweetly put up with me sitting by her (and fighting a really badly wound skein of crochet thread) and was a wonderful companion.
The best events for me were the fanfic workshop and the afterparty where I got to hang out with a bunch of really lovely folks. @songlinwrites ’ “You wrote Drouk?” reaction was utterly gratifying, and it was fun to talk omegaverse irl.
(Why does tumblr refuse to accept some @mentions? Because, tumblr.)
I came late to the table of the (really incredibly kind!) emmagrant01 to see what the prompts were like. Now, I don’t do prompt fic. Because 99 times out of 100, it just makes my mind go blank. But then I got dealt a Stamford card and a Mycroft card. I love Mike, and the moment I saw Mycroft with him in the context of porn, well, a ship launched itself.
The 3 Patch party was as hilarious as you’ve heard, and I met the adorable @you-like-my-music and catie-brie who were super sweet, and then got to talk a bit more with amazing @avawatson who was so nice about Comorbidity I can’t even stand it. And I have to apologize to all of them that I’m so fucking deaf and couldn’t hear half of what anybody said.
On Sunday was the trip to the crime museum, which was a great idea, and the crime lab activity was fun. But by the end of the day Sunday I was ready to fall down before I even started the drive home. And then I had to get ready for meetings on Monday.
(also met several other lovely people, not all of whose fandom names I got)
Really intended to respond to lovely messages and get this prompt fic (!) edited Monday night, but after very nearly brushing my teeth with spf 30, I decided to sleep instead. And still feel like I need a nap.
