The Unusual Bearings collection revealed yesterday!

I was SO EXCITED about this exchange, which is for mpreg and other non-standard pregnancy fic (ie, anything but "cis dude impregnates cis woman via PIV"). Mpreg is one of my favorite tropes in the world. It may even be the #1 favorite; I usually think it goes time travel > mpreg > zombie apocalypse, but then I get/read another mpreg fic and just...melt even more extremely than I do for anything else, haha.

Anyway, I received two MCU fics, and they are both FANTASTIC!

My main gift was In the Interest of Honesty, which is such a sweet, quiet Loki/Bucky fic. Post-CW/Ragnarok, they're living in Bucky's hut in Wakanda, after being arranged married for reasons (yep, this trope keeps happening for them and I adore it). Bucky's just found out he's pregnant, when he didn't think he could get pregnant "naturally"...and has to break the news to his still fairly new husband. I love everything about their dynamic, and the conversation they end up having. Such a quiet, lovely fic for my two MCU faves.

And I also received a treat, Cast in a Golden Light, which is a Thor/Loki fic wherein Thor's fertility god powers go haywire and impregnate all the Asgardians, and Loki then gets OTT dramatic over not being included (while also being legit upset about it, but like...lol). I nominated the very specific tag for this scenario in the desperate hopes that someone would write it exactly. like. this., and I am so fucking happy someone went with it. It's so hilarious, and so sweet, and so bittersweet the way anything involving the surviving Asgardians has to be.

I have my suspicions about who wrote my stories. At this point, given that the other person I thought might have written the Thor/Loki has now kudos'd it, it is the same suspicion for both of them. :P

As for what I wrote, I have three fics in the collection. The first two are not even slightly anonymous, apparently. Not that I expected them to be, but it's frankly hilarious how un-anon they ended up. As for the third one, it's a little less obviously me, but still on-brand. So I wouldn't be surprised if people had me pegged for that one, too. :P

On hold

I fell off the ladder yesterday when I was caulking the cat enclosure 2x4s and broke my shoulder. So it doesn't look like I'll be doing any more work on it, or much of anything, for a while.

Spent a big chunk of time yesterday trying to corral a bright green and yellow parakeet that bounced off a window of the library while a friend and I were peacefully drinking coffee. The silly thing didn't allow himself to be captured. My crafty coworker whipped up a fantastic net but by the time we returned he had flown off. I wish him all the best and hope he evades the campus cats and the hawks that like to pick off pigeons in the area.

Back to aikido tonight. I look forward to hobbling around for the next couple of days.

I remember liking Oldfield's Tubular Bells when I was a teen but now I can't listen to more than a minute of it.

Yay!  Weki Meki, one of my favorite (if not my very favorite) K-pop groups, will be having a comeback in May!  I can't wait to see and hear what they come up with this time!  (I'd been thinking recently that they were due for a comeback soon, and apparently I was right on track.)  Expect to see further updates on this here, as the agency teases us with photos and video clips to build up expectation before the big day.
