So, I've decided to save links to all my stories on pinboard.  Everything is there now.

It's here, if you want to check it out.

I give blanket permission for podficcing and other things -- but let me know what's being done with my fics, and if you want to do anything with any of my original stuff, you have to ask me first. DO NOT repost any of my works anywhere, though links are fine.

I'm watching The Walking Dead for the first time as research for a thing I need to write, and oh my god, Daryl Dixon is AWESOME. He's my favorite, and then Glenne, and wow, Bella from Supernatural is cool in this, and I keep researching to find out what happens to characters (HOLY SHIT), and this IS NOT a show I should be watching by myself.


I’ve driven all over Denham Springs and Baton Rouge this week, running errands for my family members who are salvaging what they can and clearing out their houses. The water literally came within a foot of my parents’ house. Half a dozen cars in my family are trash now. Grocery stores keep selling out as quickly as stuff gets put on shelves.

And my family is still so fucking lucky compared to others down here.
Every time I think about the fact that Louisiana created a pet evacuation plan because so many people refused to leave without their animals during Katrina, I tear up.


Why Do People Live in Louisiana?

So, I finally broke down and sobbed while driving down the highway, bringing lunch and ice to the crew cleaning out my aunt's house: aunt, 2 cousins, lilsis, brother-in-law, and assorted friends of my cousins. I pulled off the highway, cried until the tears stopped, and got back on the road.

Then, tears still in my throat, I ranted into my phone's memo app because I am so fucking tired of and angry about the comments I've seen on articles about this, the tweets, the tumblr posts.

I can't figure out how to upload that audio file, and I wanted to. If you want that file, give me your email because I really love it.

But here's the poem it became:

Why Do People Live in Louisiana?
Written: August 17, 2016

I keep seeing all these comments about people asking:
“Why does anyone live in Louisiana,
and Mississippi, and Alabama, and Florida,
where there’s hurricanes and there’s floods?
Why does anyone stay,
why do they keep coming back?”

Why do people live in the blast range of a volcano?

Why do people live where the earth will
literally fucking shake beneath their feet and
open up and swallow them?

California’s on fucking fire
why does anybody live anywhere that can catch on fire?

Why do people live in fucking Tornado Alley?

Why do people live anywhere?

Weather happens, you shitheads.
Weather happens.
Usually there’s warning and this time there fucking wasn’t.

Why do people live here?
Because it’s home, you dickheads.

My aunt has cellphone video almost exactly like this. She played it for me and it was horrifying.

WHAT THE FUCK, California is on fire ?!

One interstate exit away from my parents' place on Sunday. (taken by DOTD)

Literally across the interstate from my parents' place and lilsis' apt on Sunday. (taken by brother in law)

Update: aunt and uncle's houses pretty much a total loss. bigsis can salvage some things. it's supposed to rain every day this week and while around here is drying out, the flood is moving on to other places so it's still an ongoing nightmare beyond imagination.
Just walked around my parents’ neighborhood.

Mom pointed out everywhere that was completely underwater when they hightailed the fuck out yesterday because if they didn’t leave then, they wouldn’t have been able to.

Thankfully, it seems they would’ve been fine because the water turned back just in time - but oh my god, so many thousands are not that lucky. A foot more of water and it would’ve been in the house.

Four adults in a two bedroom apartment with 1 bed and 1 bathroom, a cat, and a dog: not fun.

However, throughout this entire catastrophe, I have known almost the whole time where everyone in my family is, and they've always been safe. So, I'm thankful for that.

*is so fucking tired*

So my parents' street flooded. They left before it reached their house, so no idea about the house. Them and my aunt are at my apt now; had to leave my aunt's two dogs behind, so that's heartbreaking. There wasn't enough room in the cars. They're in the yard, and they're labs, so... *hopes*

Lilsis in her third floor apt with husband and our cousin, trapped by water at apt complex entrance; bigsis + husband + 2 cats + 2 dogs on the way out of town and no way to access them 'til they get back near wifi. Other assorted cousins, aunts, and uncles trapped but safe at the mo.

I have no idea what to do.

ETA: bigsis has made it to her destination! lilsis has checked on parents' place and there's water in the driveway, and our aunt's dogs have stayed put.

My older sister just posted video from my parents' house and there is WATER AT THE END OF THE STREET. OH MY GOD.
My older sister argued with the rescue people, who said only humans could come on the boat. She was about to go with the two cats while my brother-in-law stayed with the dogs.

But then TWO MORE BOATS SHOWED UP. Oh my god.

Cell phones have no service, but thankfully my sisters, Mom, and I all have iphones so we can message. Other family members don't have iphones, so now I can't contact them.

Shitting fucking holy goddamned hell.

Aug. 13th, 2016

So, my entire life, I’ve known that my mother chose my childhood home, the one she’s lived in for almost 30 years, because it is high ground. If the street I used to ride my bike down floods, the entirety of the city is underwater.

So far, only three homes in my family haven’t taken on any water: my parents’ place, my little sister’s apartment complex (she lives on the 3rd floor), and my apartment complex. Part of my family has evacuated on their own; some are awaiting rescue because they cannot get out. One of them has taken on water but is hunkering down - hopefully, it’ll recede before they need to be rescued.

This is so insane. I haven’t gotten a real picture in person of what’s happening because the area I’m in, for some reason, it’s all mostly been normal. My little sister was released early from work today because if she’d stayed any longer, there would’ve been no way home. I look at the photos and the videos, and I recognize where they are. I’ve been there before, sometimes very often.

I remember Katrina. Other storms. Gustav - fucking Gustav. But this is something else.
If praying is something you do, please pray for my older sister, and my uncle and cousins, and my aunt. They’re waiting for someone with a boat and it’s so fucking devastating, what’s happening. There’s no way to prepare for something like this.

Hot Fuzz

So, did y'all know that Hot Fuzz has like a million commentaries? Because I did not know that until today, and that's what I've watched for basically the whole day. (There were a couple hours where I availed myself of my parents' DVR for Chopped Junior.)


holy fuck

"Historic" rainfall, "historic" river levels, "500 year storm," "a storm that would have a name if it formed over water" instead of land -- I listened to the radio on the way home from my parents' place and I just want to cry. This is fucking terrifying. It's a hurricane that's parked over us and most of the city is shut down. Whole parishes are being evacuated, I heard.

IT WOULD HAVE A NAME if it formed over water. Fucking hell.

Should tigriswolf attend her ten year high school reunion?

Why the hell would you want to spend any more time with those people?
You literally went to two school events, and one of them was graduation. No.
Well, I'd say "Why not?" but you have to pay money and find a parking spot downtown somewhere you've never been before. So, pass.
Literally, you had to be paid $100 to even go to graduation! Why would you pay to attend the reunion?
