My mental health is such a fucking headtrip sometimes. (I know, sounds like a tautology, but–normally my reality testing is fairly good.)

About six months a lot of my bullying-sourced crazy got triggered like mad and my head went back to the place that I am awful and unlovable and everyone is going to desert me. So, since last autumn, I’ve been low-level convinced that at least half the people I know casually despise me. If I haven’t kept in touch over the winter odds are I’ve been thinking, like, “It would be awkward to force myself on people who dislike me so much. I’ll have to save making amends and mending fences for when I’m more recuperated.”

I’m better in many ways these days but the residue of crazy clings. So when I extend little gestures of “Do you still hate me now?” to friends and acquaintances and they’re just friendly and glad to hear from me, it blows my fucking mind every time.

Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, eating Doritos. One minute and fifteen seconds, in which Hemsworth says to Evans, "That's exactly what I thought you'd taste like."

I do not remember the last time I woke up at 11. I mean, I did probably go to bed around 2, but still -- oh man, disorienting. Last night [personal profile] theladyscribe and I had an A+ Korean food experience, then wandered up to Times Square to see a movie, any movie, which turned out to be Ex Machina, which was incredible. Many thoughts about how amazing and weird that was.

Oof. I thought writing an entry would help me have more to say (that I would want to say in public?), but I don't think it's going to.

Hello, Saturday, I guess I really need you.

It's that time again! The AO3 hit-and-kudos count meme!

Previous years: 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011.

Top 10 stories by hit count on AO3 (as of 4/18/15):

all Avengers )

Obviously the big change is the explosion of Steve/Bucky as a pairing after CATWS came out last April. Only one of these stories was posted after that (Greetings to the New Brunette), so my own difficulties in writing meant I didn't really ride that wave, but as they say, a rising tide lifts all boats, and my older Steve/Bucky stories certainly benefited. The only Steve/Bucky story on the list last year was Welcome to Wherever You Are, which is number 11 this time. In fact, it's not until #17 in hits that you return to non-Steve/Bucky stories (Six Meetings Before Lunch, the Steve and Thor bro fic).

And here are my Top 10 stories by kudos on AO3:

Also all Avengers )

Again, the impact of CATWS is clear. I never thought anything of mine would have more kudos than the coloring story. It was inconceivable to me. And yet.

I didn't do it by comments because I haven't in the past, but if I had, two yuletide stories would jump into the top 10, as would the Steve/Peter and the Despicable Me/Avengers crossover.


In other news, don't forget Orphan Black comes back tonight!


Today's poem:

The Calling Out of Names

The place the dead go has hooded windows. No binoculars.
There are no birds in that air or anything else worth watching

though sometimes this or that one stirs in the red-roofed loggia
disturbed by a dream, only there it's more like memory

not fully purged. That's when we're put on notice, aware
our thoughts are read. It's what interests them. Not the body,

so like theirs were once, even in the oddities of birthmarks
but, no, there's no thought to body. The sense of it, they dispel

lying so deep in one another's grief. Still, there's the tug of the familiar,
the familial — someone's habit here of singing out a name — that solicits

attention if only because touch was the last sensation
a hand brushing a forehead

and for a moment, they think our thoughts and our inarticulate arms
open and birds, with the most beautiful bodies, lift into the air.

~Anne Compton
