 As some of you know, I only live 25 minutes away from Brussels, so life has been really shaky and sad and horrible lately. I won't go into it here, except to once more officially state that the world can really suck sometimes.

I wasn't in a good headspace before that, so it's been kind of hard to deal with it all. So it was time for the tried and true coping mechanism of dealing with sadness like this: happy media consumption, and fandom distractions.

I've been watching Hit The Floor, a silly show about scheming cheerleaders, scheming basketball players, and scheming other characters. It's fun, it's wacko and it has a gay athlete coming out story, which always pushes my buttons.

I've also been watching Shadowhunters, which features some of the worst acting I've ever seen, and I seriously dislike half of the characters and 70% of the plot. But it also features canon gay characters struggling with who they are, and just my buttons being pushed all over the place. Plus, so many hot people, it's ridiculous, but just the kind of shallow deliciousness I need.

It's possibly I'm planning to write about Alec and Magnus for [community profile] unconventionalcourtship  and just write myself some silly category romance inspired feel good fic.

I'm also participating in [community profile] jukebox and listening to a lot of the music that was nominated by others. Sometimes songs are good for the soul. I'm really looking forward to this, even if I'm a little bit intimated by writing original fiction. 

And last but not least, I participated in [community profile] purimgifts for which I wrote 3 short fics about Brooklyn 99s Rosa and Amy and their friendship. And also produced 3 art-pieces, which if you've ever tried painting Rosa's hair will know was quite the adventure for an amateur like me.

I als received a lovely story in 3 parts for Killjoys, a superpowers AU. It was just what I needed to be distracted, some action, lots of tension, and fun reimaginings of the characters. 

And like, on a bigger scale all this stuff is minor and insignificant, but fuck it, it's been giving me joy when there's very little to be had, so I'm grateful.
