Writer's Block: The Walking Dead

In case of an impending zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice, and why?
A little bit of everything. But I'd always carry a crossbow (silent so it can't attract the attention of more walkers, easy to carve more bolts, good for long distance attacks), a katana (as a back up, good for close-quarters combat), a hunting knife (another perfect backup for close-quarters, never know when you'll need a big knife. Thank you Murphy MacManus) and a handgun (distance weapon, and preferably one with exchangeable clips and one bullet in the chamber for those dire situations where there is no survival. Don't wanna be a walker, and it's really hard to shoot yourself in the head with a crossbow).

But really, I just want a crossbow. Cuz as Norman Reedus said: "You can't not look cool with a crossbow."

Summing Up 2011

So I guess this is the obligatory "end-of-the-year-musings" post. Wish I could look back on 2011 fondly, but it's been nothing but hell. My dad almost died from a bleeding ulcer (the doctors have no idea how he actually managed to hold on. I figure it's because he's stubborn as hell) then was diagnosed with lymphoma. While he was undergoing chemotherapy, my mom began to get sick again. It ended with her passing away in July after laying in a coma for over a day. I had to bury my own mother on a rainy day in July, almost one week after my parent's wedding anniversary.

Then in november I was robbed at gunpoint.

The guy came in when it was just me and my younger, pregnant cousin. He grabbed my arm, pointed a gun at me, and demanded money. He pushed me towards the back and I tried to open the safe. I was crying and the safe is very picky, so it wasn't opening. He accused me of stalling and threatened to shoot one of us if I didn't get it open in five seconds. I finally got it open and pulled money out. He took what he wanted and left. I called 911, but I was crying so hard I don't know how she understood what I was saying. I couldn't work for a week, and even then I'd have panic attacks.

Here's hoping next year is better. Otherwise I don't know what I'll do. Probably lose my mind.

Fic: Stay (The Walking Dead, Rick Grimes/Daryl Dixon)

Title: Stay

Rating: R (for sexual content, mentions of past physical/sexual abuse, some language)

Pairing: Rick Grimes/Daryl Dixon

Summary: "Stay," Daryl breathed against Rick's lips. "Just....please. Stay."

Disclaimer: "The Walking Dead" and the characters of Rick and Daryl don't belong to me. I'm just playing with them.

Notes: Written for a prompt on twd_kinkmeme. "Daryl is surprised when Rick fucks him for the first time, because Daryl's only ever had it rough and doesn't expect anything less from the guy who constantly points a gun at his head. But after Rick's initial snap (maybe he shoves Daryl against a tree or to the ground or something), the sex is surprisingly sweet and Daryl's not quite sure what to make of it. Bonus points if Daryl isn't used to people being nice to him and is a little overwhelmed/confused by the fact that Rick doesn't seem to want to just mercilessly pound him into the ground." Takes place after 2.05 "Chupacabra" but before 2.07 "Pretty Much Dead Already".

Losing My Religion

It's only been a month. The longest, most horrible month of my entire life. Everytime I think: "I'm on top of this. I'm okay." I'm just....not. Something new comes along like a kick in the gut, and I can't breathe. I feel like I'm just running as fast as I can to stay ahead of something completely overwhelming. I don't know what it is, but I know if it gets me I'll just....break.

Mom was always the one to help me through this. She understood. Dad....doesn't. He doesn't know how to handle me and my problems. He never did. I think it scares him. Scares me sometimes.

Grandma wants to start taking me to church. Sometimes I think about it, but now it's a bad idea. I don't know how to tell her that I'm unbelieveably pissed at God for all He's done and everything He put my family through. They didn't deserve this hell. He's a sick fuck. And if one more person tells me "God has a plan" or "He works in mysterious ways" I'm gonna break something.

See You Later, Mom

My mom passed away early this morning. She developed a rare, dangerous blood infection called Methicillin-resistant Staphlycoccus Aureus, and it was just too much. She went to bed on Thursday night, and when she didn't wake up Friday Dad called an ambulance. She was in the ICU for two days before they said that she just wasn't going to make it. We had them take out the breathing tube at around a quarter to 1 Sunday morning. My Dad, myself, my grandma and grandpa were at her side when she went. She had a final muscle spasm right at the end, and her hand tightened around mine.

I ache everywhere, and my heart is just broken.

When I Grow Up....

Finally made some decisions about my life. When my Dad gets better (not if, WHEN) I'm going back to school for journalism.

I was inspired in a roundabout way by one of my coworkers, who's three years younger than me (20). I was talking about Mummar Ghaddafi and the uprising in Libya. I was commenting on how it sounded a lot like a situation in the middle east years ago when we gave Al-Qaeda weapons and training to fight off the Soviet invasion, then they turned it on us. Apparently the CIA was supplying the rebels in Libya with weapons, and I voiced a concern that we could end up with another enemy somewhere down the road. Finally, my coworker looked at me and said: "I know I should care, but I don't. It doesn't effect me, so I just don't care".

I was struck dumb by her blatant arrogance and apathy. I understand she didn't mean to come across as cold, but she did. Innocent people are being slaughtered by this nearly unhinged madman, but since it doesn't directly effect her, she doesn't care. I shrugged it off, but her words ate at me the rest of the day.

I've come to realize that I was once like her. I didn't care less about international politics. After 9/11, all I cared about was Americans dying in the middle east in a war I didn't fully understand. But as I got older I made a point to learn the history behind the jihad on America, and just why they hated us. At first, after that day, I was one of the people who said "bomb iraq", but I came to learn that the world isn't as black and white as I thought.

When I think about my opinions when I was young (I was 13 when 9/11 happened) I'm embarrassed by my own hubris and ignorance. I've made myself more educated on the ways of the world, but I still find people my own age who view the world through the simplest terms they possibly can. What's more is they don't care to expand their minds. They think that a mass genocide perpetrated by the very man meant to lead and protect the people is inconsequential, as no one they know is being killed. But history has taught us that an act of that scale can have far reaching consequences, and that those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it.

I want people to care about those on the other side of the world. I want them to hear about a tyrannical dictator ordering the deaths of his own people and feel empathy, not apathy. I want them to rally and demand justice and action to put a stop to events like these. I want to be a part of a country that uses it's position as a world superpower to do good.

I know I can't change the world, but all I hope is that I make my generation, and future generations, a little less ignorant.

Going Through Hell

Either I seriously fucked someone important over in another life (I'm thinking killed a Pope), or the Universe has just decided to make me it's own little punching bag.

Dad has Lymphoma. It's Non-Hodgkins, thank god, but he's doing chemotherapy right now for it. He's not sick, but I'm waiting for it. He may just be hiding it from me.

Then there's Mom.

At first I thought she was just "dealing" with it in the same way she'd "dealt" with him almost dying back in January, and freaked out at her over it. She's back, somewhat, but she's still sick. She has a hard time staying awake, stumbles over her words at times, and I think she's having a hard time walking again. It's the same as a few summers back when we had to put her in the hospital for three months. She's also been sleepwalking, losing track of her days, and thinking we're watching my nieces in the middle of the night.

I've been okay in the past as long as I have one parent to lean on when things got too tough, but now they're both sick, and I don't know what to do. Dad's keeping on a brave face for me, and I love him for it, but the strain is bad. I haven't relaxed in nearly two weeks. I find myself staying awake all night, listening for Mom moving around. I hate leaving the house for too long in case my parents need me, but I also need to get out as much as possible to get away. I've had a tension headache that has threatened to rip my head open for almost a month. The stress has made me throw up numerous times, and my chest feels tight. I think I'm gonna lose my mind, and god help me I want to. Insanity would be much easier than dealing with this.

Writer's Block: It's cold outside

I live in Minnesota, so it's funny to hear people in places like California complaining about the cold. What temperature is too cold for you?


I guess "too cold" for me is -30. Without the windchill. That happened a few years back and they closed school because of it. Thank god. Since 10 minutes in that will freeze any exposed skin. I believe eyes freeze at -45.
