Spreading Out.

It has taken me two years since The BFF initially suggested it to me, but I have finally gotten an AO3 account. I was hesitant because I have issues with being too spread out in my fandom life, having my fic in more than one place. It's a control issue. I know I didn't have it back in my early days of fandom, when everything was on Yahoo groups and this archive and that website, etc. My fics were spread out everywhere back then. In those days though, I was on the drugs and that made my control issues less of a deal than they are now. Since then, like I was looking for good Firefly fic to read that hit the sweet spot I wanted, and the place I was searching recommended my own story to me! I didn't even remember ever having put anything in that archive! So after letting the suggestion sit for two years - omg - I finally did it. I am just slowly loading my fic on there, a few a week. So far I just have three fics up - a Misha/Mike-Jared/Jensen fic, a Puckerman-centric Glee fic & a Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert fic. I will be uploading in the order that I posted to LJ, until I get all caught up.

I also started a side tumblr, as a place to vent about a lot of the day to day of the disability. I mean, I vent about the big stuff here and also updates on my health, but I wanted a place to just randomly complain about the little things. Like, why do people think my wheelchair is a coat rack? Or why do businesses put their handicap parking spots way down away from the building? Sure, the ramp is down there for wheelchair people, but wheelchairs aren't the only kind of disability. What about those of us who struggle with walking farther than we have too? Things like that and reblogs and submissions of the same kind. And helpful things like adaptive equipment and stuff. Tumblr is the first place I ever heard the words 'ableists' and ableism', so I figured it was a good place to reach others who would like a blog like this and maybe benefit from it. At least we can be 'like'-ing things in solidarity.

Anyways, here is where I am now on the Internets...
