It is a smidge over 49k and, uh, it is going to hurt. A lot.

I would apologize in advance but this is serious “time to own that actually you just like making your characters and readers suffer” territory. :D:

…I was traveling to visit family last Sunday and sort of forgot that Sunday was happening in the haze of spending several hours with my parents and then several hours discussing my parents with my brothers. Oops?

But now I am home again! And writing things! And talking about them on Tumblr!

WIPs currently active: 5, because I finished Little Bitty #2!!

Words written this week fortnight: 12,611, which was one really good week and one kinda meh week, so it balances out. :D

WIPs that got no words this week: 3 - broken dick epic, Born in the Blood, sequel to “Ring the Bell Backward”. Which is what happens when I frantically attempt to FINISH THINGS that are either v. close to finishing or HAVE ACTUAL DEADLINES OH GOD.

WIPs that did get words this week:

Little Bitty #2 (Jemmie): 1,628 and DONE!!! at just over 10k. And… will… definitely get betaed and posted! Someday! When I find a minute in between ALL THE OTHER THINGS.

Slavefic #5 (THE DRAMATIC REUNION): 7,344, and I am in the middle of the FINAL CHAPTER OH MAN I AM SO CLOSE TO FINISHING!!!! Also it’s just over 46k, so apparently it’s not, uh, going to be appreciably shorter than Sink Right to the Floor, which for a while I had thought it would be. Ahahaha why would anything ever be short, why would I even dream of that. /o\

Dragon!Bucky/Tribute!Steve Cap Reverse Big Bang Story: 3,639, and getting! really! close! to being! done! which is good because I post in less than two weeks!! :DDD:

Kipling said it best:

The Sons of Martha

THE Sons of Mary seldom bother, for they have inherited that good part;
But the Sons of Martha favour their Mother of the careful soul and the troubled heart.
And because she lost her temper once, and because she was rude to the Lord her Guest,
Her Sons must wait upon Mary's Sons, world without end, reprieve, or rest.

It is their care in all the ages to take the buffet and cushion the shock.
It is their care that the gear engages; it is their care that the switches lock.
It is their care that the wheels run truly; it is their care to embark and entrain,
Tally, transport, and deliver duly the Sons of Mary by land and main.

They say to mountains, " Be ye removèd" They say to the lesser floods " Be dry."
Under their rods are the rocks reprovèd - they are not afraid of that which is high.
Then do the hill tops shake to the summit - then is the bed of the deep laid bare,
That the Sons of Mary may overcome it, pleasantly sleeping and unaware.

They finger death at their gloves' end where they piece and repiece the living wires.
He rears against the gates they tend: they feed him hungry behind their fires.
Early at dawn, ere men see clear, they stumble into his terrible stall,
And hale him forth like a haltered steer, and goad and turn him till evenfall.

To these from birth is Belief forbidden; from these till death is Relief afar.
They are concerned with matters hidden - under the earthline their altars are
The secret fountains to follow up, waters withdrawn to restore to the mouth,
And gather the floods as in a cup, and pour them again at a city's drouth.

They do not preach that their God will rouse them a little before the nuts work loose.
They do not teach that His Pity allows them to leave their job when they damn-well choose.
As in the thronged and the lighted ways, so in the dark and the desert they stand,
Wary and watchful all their days that their brethren's days may be long in the land.

Raise ye the stone or cleave the wood to make a path more fair or flat;
Lo, it is black already with blood some Son of Martha spilled for that !
Not as a ladder from earth to Heaven, not as a witness to any creed,
But simple service simply given to his own kind in their common need.

And the Sons of Mary smile and are blessèd - they know the angels are on their side.
They know in them is the Grace confessèd, and for them are the Mercies multiplied.
They sit at the Feet - they hear the Word - they see how truly the Promise runs.
They have cast their burden upon the Lord, and - the Lord He lays it on Martha's Sons !

By the way, Tim Farron, couldn't you have put off your politico-religious crisis until tomorrow? Respect, man. And speaking of religion, it seems that the death toll in what Monica Galetti (who is helping co-ordinate help and support efforts via Twitter) referred to as "Grendel Towers", would have been even higher than what it will undoubtedly be had it not been for the fact that it's Ramadan in June in latitudes 51 degrees north and counting, and so the local Muslims were awake and helped rouse everyone they could*, also sending water and other stuff from the nearby mosque.

*The tower residents report that the alarms did not work and neighbours hammering on doors was the best and first alarm they got.

Two days are an age in politics

One of the minor victories of Thursday night is the crushing (let us hope forever) of the Parliamentary career of the appalling Simon Danczuk, who stood as an independent having lost the Labour nomination for various reasons including an expenses scandal, sexting a vulnerable 17year old, being in the pub with his shortly-to-be-ex-girlfriend while his constituency flooded, multiple suspicions of wife-beating and undermining Corbyn at every turn.

The reason he's not Rochdale's worst MP is because the incumbent MP for many years was Cyril Smith .

I was born in Rochdale although my family got the hell out of there when I was three, so I never got to experience Rochdale politics at its murky worst, though I gather it was (and on the evidence of Danczuk probably still is) pretty bad, and at times surreal (my mother once opened the door to a canvasser and found Moira Shearer on her doorstep in a fur coat. She was campaigning on behalf of her husband, Ludovic Kennedy.)

Galloway was apparently soundly beaten into third in Gorton, and didn't even turn up for the count, so that's another one down.

Rebecca Long-Bailey was always going to be pretty much a shoo-in in Salford and Eccles, but just to make sure we turned up to the temporary polling station, in a flooding portacabin opposite the Friars Primary School, which is its normal home. Seven fifteen and we were about the sixth and seventh voters already.

There is nothing I can say about a coalition between the Tories and the DUP which can't better be said by people who either live in or have lived in Northern Ireland, though I commend the tweet from someone on my timeline who observed, "When I said I wanted abortion law in NI to be the same as GB, it wasn't THIS way I imagined it." But when I think of all the tabloid ink spilt over alleged historic links between Corbyn and Sinn Fein (and rumours that he was proposing a coalition between Labour and Sinn Fein, which would be a peculiarly useless coalition given Sinn Fein's approach to Westminister*) and barely was it dry before May was hopping into alliance with the DUP, words fail me. Though they didn't fail Ruth Davison, who went in with "As a Protestant Unionist about to marry an Irish Catholic, here's the Amnesty Pride lecture I gave in Belfast..." There are 13 Scottish Tory MPs following the SNP collapse, and only 10 DUP MPs, and it should lead to some interesting discussions with the Whips, given the leader of the Scottish Tories is a lesbian in a mixed marriage.**

Anyway, have this lovely piece by Hadley Freeman on what she loves most about Britain (including as a highlight the sheer pettiness of the brothers' Gallagher and their to-the-ends-of-the-Earth feud.)

*There is a wonderful story about Countess Markiewicz being let into the Houses of Parliament by a sympathetic doorman so she could look at her name below a designated coat-peg in the cloakroom, even though she could never go beyond the cloakroom. Bet she took the dog, too.
