Saturday so far

I went to bed around 2:30 a.m.  It took me a while to get to sleep.  My alarm woke me at 10:00 a.m., and I should have gotten up then, but I went back to sleep until 11:00 a.m.  I was doing better for a while there, except for yesterday and today.  I need to work on that.

I got the previous books in a series for the novelette I'll be working on in a couple of weeks, so I'm ready to do the next three line editing jobs as soon as I get them.

Slightly later: I went to the grocery store.  It wasn't an exciting trip, but at least I got out of the house.

I went out and took some pictures of the flowers.  'Ispahan' still has a couple of flowers.  It blooms for a long time.  'Maiden's Blush' still had a few flowers.  The echinacea is blooming, and I took some pictures of that.  I took pictures of the begonias, but they came out blurry.  The petunia has a lot of flowers on it.  The nasturtiums are blooming.

I re-read the rest (so far) of Rainjoy's Three Musketeers Affinity!Verse fic.  I hadn't printed it all out, or if I had printed it out, sections hadn't made it into the folders I have for it.  I had all the chapters saved into a Word document on the computer, though, so I printed out the bits I'd missed printing out before, and put them in the folders.

In the Affinity!Verse, Aramis is a psychic, and his visions are mostly of the future.  The chapters go between past and present, with Aramis' predictions of the future interspersed.  Teenage!Aramis knows that Richelieu is evil.  He sees the Musketeers as adults in some of his visions, so he's sliding back in time to earlier incarnations, or so it appears.  I'm sure it will all be explained eventually.  It isn't a secret that Affinity!Verse Athos is the Comte de la Fere.  He's French, but went to British public schools, which are sort of like American private prep schools, or so I believe.

Agent Treville, who Aramis calls "Captain," found Aramis in an orphanage in Chile.  Aramis found Porthos in a non-prep high school in South London.  Affinity!Verse Porthos is socially very low class, and went between foster homes after his mother died.  Athos thinks that Richelieu will never see Porthos as anything but a brute.  I think we'll be getting to D'Artagnan soon enough.  Aramis is having visions of fire, and Affinity!Verse D'Artagnan would be a fire affinity.  It was at least three hundred pages before Rainjoy got to Athos, though, so I'm not holding my breath.  [Later: It's been nearly four hundred pages, and d'Artagnan still hasn't shown up in the Affinity!Verse.]

Sunday night, the second episode of "The Musketeers" is on.  I'll have to see what Rainjoy took from that.

Rainjoy promises happy endings, though she generally has angst before her happy endings.  But in "The Three Musketeers," Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D'Artagnan all survived.  Several other characters were killed off.  I don't know what happens in the books after that one.

Later: I read some more of Fic: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World.

I talked to Jamie a bit.
