Just got back from two weeks in North Carolina with the folks - a great time, if marred by the sadness of knowing that their beloved bull mastiff Camille has bone cancer and is dying. She has good days and bad days. They almost had the hospice service come over to put her to sleep twice, and cancelled both times when she rallied. She's hobbling, but still very much herself.

On a different note, I absolutely LOVE my Good Omens Exchange present!!!!

It's a 23K science fiction novella with Aziraphale/Crowley IN SPACE, which would be incredibly awesome even if it wasn't hilarious and even if it didn't have weird xeno alien bug sex.

To Ineffability and Beyond, Part 1. Link goes to part 1 - it's posted in 5 parts.

Huge thanks to my Mystery Writer. (OK, I'm a mod, of course I do know who wrote it, but can't thank them by name until the Exchange is over)

We got started late this year, so we made the deadline later, which means we had to take a few days off when we didn't have anything to post and that the exchange will probably run longer and the reveal come later. I was beating myself up over this a little bit, but you know what? Shit happens. As long as quality is maintained, and everyone gets a gift and a chance to create one, that's what matters.

*huge hugs* I'm so sorry to hear about Camille. Mr. 42 and I lost our scruffy pup Giovanni to cancer last month, and it's so very hard to lose a cherished family member. But I'm very glad you had a nice trip otherwise, and SQUEEE in re your GO Exchange pressie! I haven't been following even the exchanges in which I participated due to various RL insanities, but I'm adding your pressie to my to-read list regardless :D And wooooo in re: forgiving yourself when life happens. Necessary skill, that.

(apologies if this double-posts, the interwebz are being weird)
