First, the good things:

A short story, The Haunted Author

A good, uplifting news article on gender equality

Some disturbing but interesting images, Fallen Princesses

Yes, I opted out on the LJ linking thing. Let me know if there's any news on that.

Fiction:

The Art Of Seduction, Giles/Ethan

Suns And Guns, Spike, Wesley

Under The Unblinking Sun, Highlander, Horsemen

And a tiny SV drabble which Tastes Like Old Times, for a nostalgic chat.

The last proper fic I posted before this batch, not including Highlander drabbles and dribbles, was on March 22nd, 2009, it seems. It was Violet Sundown, a Giles/Ethan/Xander pwp.






Right. You prayed for me, you deserve to know.

My father still has lung cancer. I'm optimistic, but I might be the only one who is. That's one update.

So mid-Feb, we bought tickets to mid-March, to see him.

And 2-3 days later we get a phone call telling us Cat's dad died. Suddenly.

So we drop everything and go there. There's a firing range next to the cemetery, right under the terrace. There were gun noises all through the funeral.

I was thinking, "I should post an update". I've been thinking it since then.

I got to see family kids. I got to see my dad. He's thinner. Lost some hair, but as I remember his father being almost bald, I try to tell myself it's not that big a deal.

The landlady watched over the cats. Bless her. A few days after we returned, her brother died. Lung cancer. Was near 15 years older than my dad. And about one year younger than Cat's dad.

We couldn't return the March tickets. We didn't try very hard. So that was almost-a-week during Feb, and almost-a-week during March. Landlady is watching our cats again.

In conclusion, let me see if I remember this quote by heart: "It's stupid. It's mortal, and stupid."



PS, is it something that happens in all airlines, that when the plane touches ground, people clap and applaud?
