Title: My American Valentine
Characters: Miko Kusanagi and John Sheppard
Summary: Miko has never been in a position to celebrate America's Valentine's Day until now.
Author's Notes: I am taking extreme creative liberties with this, but it is my hope that this kind of thing happens somewhere in the world. I like to think this is sweet and cute and fluffy, but that's probably biased and not as much as I thought. Let me know if I'm right, okay?
Story Notes: This is kind of post series between John Sheppard and Miko Kusanagi because I rarely get to see these two together and I've been shipping them in my head. I would really like someone to ask for shipping prompts because I've got at least five. Almost all of them are kind of beyond my current writing skill.

Just... just... yes.I don't know what to say other than it's just so... good, but even 'good' isn't good enough.
I have this lj that I created about three years ago this March by accident and sometimes I look at it and I can feel the need to post something, but nothing comes to mind. I've been so busy writing the Summer Contacts meta crossover series that I think I'm draining myself. I have at least vague outlines of two stories, but I get headaches when I think too hard about the Eureka installment. I might be wrong, but that sounds kind of like writers block to me.
For years I've written poetry - mostly rhyming poems - and I have more than enough materials to work with, but I don't really feel the words rushing like they had in the past.
So, what am I supposed to with this? In the times when I want to write, but can't form the words?
I don't know.
One day, I would like to write steamy stories of both straight and gay types.
I have that story I did for RairPair and that is most certainly a trio that I would like to keep writing and I had this long story in mind, but things happened and I'm pretty much still holding onto the first part of it. Trio femslash, trio mixed, trio guy slash are all on my radar, but I've no current desire for it right now.
And I have regular pair combinations that I can't bring myself to delve into yet, either. And I would dearly love to post them on here when I do.
I changed my user look and journal, which a lot of you probably already know. There's just something so calming about them. I can't exactly do much with 2016 stress, so it works.
The user look was taken at Ft. Monroe. My sister has buisness out there and I find myself babysitting Pokemon for her and the other sister. There's just so many good shells to scoop up! And there are horseshoe crab shells on the beach, too.
Pairing: Ezra/Vin, very light slash.
Summary: Vin decides to take a slight side trip before their flight home.

Disclaimer: I do not own anything, especially from the television show "Magnificent Seven."
Notes: I had the urge to do a short story and I remembered a trip we took to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee about four or so years ago. As you may remember, that area has recently been ravaged by fire. There was a gem panning place and it was very fun and I would pan for a lot of gems and other such material if I could. Alas, I have both limited money and limited space in my room, but I highly encourage you to take the chance if you can. I think that everyone should at least try it once in their life, but maybe twice if you live around the mountains.

On one of the 'after local news' programs, I heard about this election stress syndrome and how people just couldn't take the election anymore. I'm starting to wonder if these people were some of the third party supporters because I thought I was relatively safe in the middle ground. It turns out that I don't think I was.
I mean, it's not like I want to hit the tv every time a candidate went on (which is a completely
Different story when watching Sherlock And that damn Moriarty and I really just want him shot), but I think there is anxiety now when I hear about what this guy has done now.
I really don't think I'll be watching much news this year as a result. Except for the local news. Sometimes.
There are a lot of things that go into anxiety, but I highly suspect that the 2016 Election is the cause of it. Just, as a whole, I think, and being constantly reminded of it isn't helping a bit.
I think I'll try finding employment this year, after the summer, I think once my youngest sister finally knows how to drive. Until then I guess I'll just have to keep writing stories and reading others.
But After Tomorrow might be on temporary hiatus due to writers block of the headache variety. I still have a lot written, but I hate thinking of a story and then dealing with a bad headache in the process. Anyone else have that problem?
So, I guess that'll be it for now. I hope to feel better in a few months when all of this isn't so fresh anymore.

So maybe I need to think about talking these over with someone and what better way to do that than on a blog of sorts?
The most recent book I picked up is 'American Panic: A History of Who Scares Us and Why.' Mark Stein writes this one and I really liked his History Channel inspiring series based on his book of the same name, 'How the States Got Their Shapes'. It is most definitely something you should read or watch if you want to fill the time. I don't know if international readers can get it very easily, but I can.
I started on the introduction chapter and the 'primary focus' of sorts is about the Salem Witch trials and how that works as a good example of a so called 'political panic', or "the irrational fear that one's government is in danger." (1) More like the fact that it was believed that witchcraft and sorcery was going to take over the Puritan rule of the town. In actual fact, the only thing taking that town over was alarm, panic and a leave of common sense.
I'm pretty sure that the trials and the tossing out of 'spectral evidence' was the reason we have things like Exhibit A in modern courts.
Stein continues on to explain what makes a political panic and a number of elements that the rest of the book will explain.
I'll keep reading and hopefully get to chapter one by tomorrow and maybe reach two by this weekend. I don't know just yet. But I really like the idea of a book blog of sorts and I think not going into too much detail will be okay.
In the meantime, I still have the fanfic I'm writing and I'm quickly finishing up one story to focus on the next.
Hopefully, I'll get to finish this nonfiction book this time so I can get to the interesting subjects.
Characters:(Primary) Miko Kusanagi and John Sheppard; (briefly) Rodney McKay
There are two versions of this 'jishin' idea that I had one day and it kind of started me thinking.
Version One is from John's POV. He learns that not everyone is happy on Atlantis and that they really can't make everyone happy when it comes to certain things.
Version Two is from Miko's POV.
