Rainbow || Rainbow northern lights.

(no subject)

I hope to here officially end my unofficial hiatus, which was more a Missing In Action than a hiatus, really. I've spent the last few days sucking up any and all time at my family home with my family. I'm bummed I spent all 2 weeks ('cept 2 days) my uncle was here house-sitting, but at least I got a few final nights in with my brother (we're both social late in the evening) before we shipped him back off to England yesterday. I've been sitting here in the living room ecstatically listening to all the human movement in the house and feeling gleeful every time a door opens to reveal someone walking in from the kitchen or the mudroom.

I've scrubbed myself clean (not just "I'm going to take a shower" clean but "I'm going on a date tonight" clean despite a lack of dates) and am feeling closer to the old winter-and-holidays-loving Kiwi than I haven't felt since I started house-sitting, really. It's a huge relief. I hated feeling that down that often!

Tonight I'm off to volunteer at my congregation's coffee house with my mother; it looks as though it'll be a sold-out show, so a big raffle and lots of clean up after intermission.

But! I managed to get my first hoggywartyxmas story in! (It's absolutely dreadful that I haven't felt up to doing any fandom reading; guilt guilt guilt is a monster in my gut.) I started with the story I was gifted because I certainly wanted to make sure I got a comment up for that.

Always is a Kittyhawk (Rolanda/Minerva) fic that is PG and around 1.3k words of cute, dorky, long-term-relationship interactions between two of my favourite characters. I love the Rolanda I've been given here! I won't give away just what makes it dorky (in the best sense!), but it made me smile. Apparently Rolanda directed this fic herself, so I have her to thank as well. Thank you, Mystery Author and Rolanda! I am thrilled with my gift. :D
