Heyyy. Do I remember you saying you wanted to write for the Avengers RBB?

I did want to, but then I was at work when the claims went up, so...yeah. They kind of sped through that entire 'here are the claims, when should we open claiming, okay we'll open then' process. =/

Yeah, they kind of did. There are still a dozen or so unclaimed, I think.

I'll go look then. Did anyone claim your fanmix yet? It'd be fun to work on something with you. <3

Yeah, mine got claimed about an hour in. (I spent the first hour looking at claims and going NOBODY WANTS MINE WAHHH and then mine got claimed, and it's someone who's involved in the Clint/Coulson Feelschat thing, and so I chatted with my author a while today and apparently we share a brain or something, because her ideas for fic like...match mine exactly, it was kind of hilarious. We were both stuck in capslock and making high-pitched dolphin noises at each other XD

...sorry, I ramble. I'm just...probably more excited than I should be.)

I think they stopped crossing off claimed prompts a while ago because they're sleeping, but last I looked, here are the ones still available:

Eh, I didn't see anything, but maybe they'll open up for a second round of claiming. =P

They said they might, once everything's been claimed the first round. That would be kind of cool.

(...I know this is sort of supposed to be anon, but mine's #61, if they do open it up for a second round. XD )

It's just really disappointing. I was at work during the very small window when they had the poll open for times to do claims, I wasn't online when they announced the results or posted the artwork to look at, I was at work when they opened the claims. I don't understand why they rushed through it. Usually RBBs take a few days so that you can take your time looking at everything being offered and make arrangements for someone else to make your claim if you couldn't be there. What was the big hurry?

(I'll keep that in mind. :D)

Yeah, they did kind of rush it. I mean, I know they said that you could have a proxy submit your claims for you if you weren't going to be around when claims opened, but not everyone can just pull a friend out of midair who will always be available to proxy, you know? I was really surprised at how short that poll was open, too. Why didn't they put the poll up, like...the day art was due? So everyone could vote in it over the weekend? *shrug*

(TBH, I assumed this was normal? Because I've never participated in anything like this before.)

(Eee! :D )

I'm not even close to an expert, but from my experience that was very much not normal. =/ Oh well. I'll just keep an eye on my flist and hopefully they'll reopen the claims during a time when I can actually grab something I have the slightest interest in writing about.

Good luck! Hopefully they do a second round sometime more convenient.

Haha, I work six days a week and am at church half the day during my one day 'off'. There is no convenient time in my life anymore. XD

(Well, that's not strictly true. I have next week off, because the bakery's going to be closed for the week, so if they do it then I might actually be around.)

Thanks! *crosses fingers*

Yeah, I totally get that. The only reason I was even around to watch claims today is because I'm "working from home" because I'm supposed to be writing my thesis. Even so, I had to go into work today. And...well. I can't actually remember the last time I had a day where I wasn't in lab? So I feel you on that.

(Ooh. I talked about lab. That means I can use my Bruce icon, yes? Because he is science-related? XD )

What's your thesis on? Since you mention a lab, I assume it's something I'm going to know NOTHING about, but I can nod and smile and pretend. ;)

(You can! :D Speaking of Bruce, what are your thoughts on Bruce/Darcy? Because I am OBSESSED and want to share my obsession with ALL THE PEOPLE.)

I'm planning on doing just that once I fucking graduate, provided I can get a job lined up. The plan right now is, I'm done with school August 15th, and I'm going to tell employers that I can't start working until October 1. (I love the fact that my husband has a full-time job now. It means that if I want to take a month off, we still have a house, and the cat still gets to eat.)

It's...well, it's more of an informal thesis, really, because I'm choosing to leave with a Masters instead of finishing my PhD (I am just loathing grad school too much to finish it, and jobs you can get with a PhD in molecular biology aren't the kinds of jobs I want anyway. Hell no, I don't want to run my own lab. And I certainly have no desire to teach.). But it's basically just a quick summary of the research I've been doing. Which is about the proteins that are involved in maintaining telomeres (that's DNA/protein complex at the ends of your DNA; it's there to keep your DNA from getting eaten away, so important sequences don't get lost).

(I am LOVING your Bruce/Darcy stuff. Except it's going to get me into trouble one of these days, because new stuff always goes up after I've gone to bed, or at least that's when the AO3 notification comes to my email, so I end up reading your fic at work because I have ZERO SELF CONTROL. But yes. LOVE IT.)

(...I do not have a Darcy icon, what is this fuckery? Have Bruce again.)

Good luck!

*smiles and nods and pretends to understand* ;) No, the bits I understand sound pretty fascinating. Science has just never been my area. lol

(\o/ I was watching Friends earlier and decided that they're the Chandler and Monica of the Avengers fandom. They're the perfect for each other couple that no one saw coming. <3)

(I don't have icons for either of them, because I suck like that. >.>)

Yeah, it is pretty interesting. I just cannot do this for another 3-4 years. If I try to work 50-60 hours a week for the next 3-4 years, I will have either a mental or physical breakdown. And I'd really rather stay out of the hospital, thanks.

(Ahaha, yes, that's a great way to describe them!)

(Ooh. RBB mods have confirmed that they'll be opening everything up for a second round of claiming once everything is picked the first time.)

Helloooooooo, sweetie~

This is the best kind of thing to come home to after a long day. And I mean that in every possible context.
