I turned 42 today! (Very, very early this morning, according to my mom.) And thank you very, very much to firesign10, and brumeier for her super-sweet congratulations post, and to everyone who left such nice comments! I got a little teary, I swear.
But still, 42. And aside from it being the answer to life, the universe and everything, I can't say as I feel much other than kind of old. I know I have Flisties who are older than I am, but, still. Maybe it's because I live in a city very, very skewed towards 20-somethings, but some days I feel absolutely ancient compared to all the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed kids running around getting university degrees.
Then again, I don't have to get a university degree anymore. \o/
But hey, birthdays are still awesome. And since it's also my awesome sister squeakyoflight's birthday, I wrote her fic! MCU fic!
I already added it to my H/C Bingo Card earlier this week, but I didn't actually tell anyone about it here, so I'm indulging myself and doing so now. It's called The Right Way to Fall. It's set post-Captain America: The Winter Soldier, because everyone who wants to write anything in the MCU fandom has to write a Winter Soldier fic these days.
Anyway, there it is. :) I'm quite happy with it, and I've been told it's good. I hope you like it. (And it's my birthday, so even if you don't you have to lie. Birthday rules! ::g::)
