My first week of vacation has been interesting with the gas shortages here in North Carolina and waiting in line for gas, for significant periods of time. I actually took a picture and posted it on social media, which one of the news affiliates in my area contacted me and asked me could they use the picture in the evening news, I said yes.
I had to use the app GasBuddy in order to find gas because every place I went by didn’t have gas, and when friends posted online saying somewhere had gas, it didn’t by the time I got there, or they only had Diesel. Even the first place I used the app for had gas when I left home but by the time I got there only had diesel. The app updated when I got there. So I’ve been parked the past few days. Today (Sunday) is the first time I’m heading out into the world in the past two days. Did I also mention my new car almost got hit twice when I was out driving around these gas stations, people trying to get into the gas lines cutting people off?
Sadly I found out I didn’t get the new job. I was disappointed, but I do want to say thank you to friends for keeping an encouraging word in my ear, and a virtual hug through this time while I continue to job search for a better quality of life. Thanks for being there for me. I know something better is out there for me.
I had to stop writing for a little bit as my writing got incredibly angsty. You’ll see in my WIP one in particular.
Here’s what I’ve posted in the last week in case you missed it:
The Life of Riley Book Two: Derby Girl
The Meet: A Greek Meet Prequel: Falling For You ❤
What are some of my writer peeps up to? @dcbbw @speedyoperarascalparty @burnsoslow @ownworldresident @bbrandy2002 @jessiembruno @darley1101 @sirbeepsalot @ao719
Here’s what I’ve been working on:
Mia’s 🌎World: A Birthday Fic
The Book: TRR x The Freshman
Pairings: Mia x Jaiden (TRR MC x M!OC) / Emily x Chris
Status: Still in the writing process.
Mia was talking with some of her gym friends and Nico when Jaiden walked into the gym. Nico was shirtless.
Jaiden rolled his eyes. Of course he was sitting right next to Mia, looking like that's where he belonged.
“Are you ready Mia?”
“Yeah, everyone, do you remember Jaiden, my boyfriend? Jaiden this is everyone!”
Jaiden smiled politely, but his eyes rested on Nico.
“I could have brought her back to campus, I'm headed back there now too. Could have saved you the trip.”
“It’s fine, I was going to look at her car anyway. Besides, she’s my girl, not yours Nico.”
An uncomfortable silence fell on the group.
“Okay…. Jai we’re going.”
Once they had gotten into Rubi...Mia glared at him.
“What the hell was that Jai?”
“What did it look like?”
“Jai, you said it wouldn’t be a problem for me to still go to the gym here?”
“Why didn’t you call me Mia?”
“I was about to, but Nico walked by in the student parking lot. I figured since we were going to the same place, it wasn’t a big deal.”
“I would have taken you to the gym no problem Mia. He still has feelings for you. He was staring at you like a sad puppy.”
“Do you trust me?”
“It’s not about trust.”
“Yes it is Jai. Don’t you trust me?”
The Wait is Over
Just The Way You Are: Chapter: 13
The Book: Crossover: Perfect Match x TRR
Pairings: Hayden x Kai (Hayden!M x Kai!F) / Liam x Riley
Status: Still in the Writing Process
“Who’s the cool parent Dipper?”
Dipper nuzzled against Kai's leg.
“Told ya.” Kai stuck her tongue out at Hayden to which he laughed.
“You indeed are the junk food, party parent, Kai. Hands down.”
Hayden’s face softened.
“You’ll be the cool mom. You’ll be the one who makes the menus when our children have sleepovers with their friends. Because every kid has to have junk food when their friends come over and spend the night. You’ll be the one that lets them stay up extra late, and sleep in, in the morning. I’ll make the cookies you ask for, but you’ll be the one to give them extra.”
Kai smiled, her eyes glistening with tears.
“Hayden, you’ll be the one to gently tell them to keep it down. You’ll be the one they call when they think they have monsters under the bed and in the closet for you to scare them away, and when they want Daddy’s strong arms to protect them.”
“Will we tell them about me? That I’m different?” He softened the words as he knew how upset it made Kai when he referred to himself as anything computer based.
“When they’re old enough to understand what it means I think. Don’t you agree?”
“Yes, I want them to know, and truly understand what I am, and how wonderful a woman their mother is, that she still loves me in spite of everything.”
“We’ll be good parents Hayden because we love each other, and we’ll love them.”
The Meet: Chapter 5
The Book: TRR
Pairings: Liam x Jillian (Liam x F!OC) / Leo x Bebe (Leo x F!OC)
Status: Still in the writing process.
Why couldn’t he just say “Her?”
He didn’t know truly what he wanted from Bebe, what was happening between them either. But something… was happening. He’d never felt like this about someone before. Like he might want to commit to her. Bebe wanted more, and he wasn’t sure he could give her that. He didn’t want to hurt her. Leo wasn’t like Liam. Liam only dated in monogamous, long term, serious relationships. Leo had never been in anything like that. Honestly, the time he had spent on and off with Bebe over the last six months had been his longest “pseudo relationship.”
He also knew she was trying to keep him at a distance too. He saw the look in her eyes when she was staring at him and Maddy talking and things were going well. Bebe looked hurt.
That look in her eyes had followed him the rest of the evening. Every time he tried to kiss Maddy, he saw Bebe. He had to leave Maddy’s place because of that look.
He also saw the look in her eyes change in that moment she pushed her feelings away, if there were feelings, when he couldn’t answer. She pulled away from him, slipping back on her shirt.
“Did you drink all the root beer?” She asked.
“I’ll get you another one.”
Bebe had turned on a comedy when he came back in.
He didn’t even think the movie was that funny, it was Bebe’s reactions to it. He loved her laugh, even the fact that she had seen the movie so much she was quoting it. Which was something he hated, but it was cute when she did it. He really didn’t like slapstick comedy like that. But watching her, it was absolutely hilarious.
This makes both my musical and my gay little heart oh, so, so, so happy...
Like I said, it’s been a little harder to work on the comic, but I promise I still am, I just had a lot of work to do. In the meantime, here’s a drawing I did of Sam and some of her wild animals 😁
Trying out soft cereal biscuits. I think they are a hit! Started foods this week with success.

“I’m not myself anymore. Am I?”
Everyone is teasing Briar and he is so pissed.
