In light of these incredibly unfortunate circumstances, I have postponed any fic writing/posting. I ask that people not complain (that is to say, be mean) about it. You can still bug me about my fics and/or show me support, but please don't post anything unkind. I feel bad enough as it is.
I'm gonna go back in the corner and curl up in a ball now.
Addendum: A can of dog food just exploded in my face. My golden retriever better be fucking grateful. I've been up all night waiting for my virus scan to finish. My life definitely sucks right now.
JOY! 24 hours later...my virus scan finished. It turns out it was a trojan horse, and my antivirus program eradicated it. Thank you for all your understanding and support. Also thanks to people who offered suggestions. My antivirus software is actually one of the best on the market, but I have to admit I was having doubts there for a minute. Anyway, after I sleep for the next 48 hours, I'm hoping to get started up with stuff again. FEEL FREE TO BUG ME ABOUT FICS NOW.
Also, I sincerely and deeply apologize to the people I beta for. I feel awful for not being able to get back to you through my finals and now this. I promise that you'll be getting your stuff back soon!!!
The joy I feel now is somewhat tempered by the fact that my father is back in the hospital. Well, right now he's at home, but that's only due to his own stubborness. He got released yesterday, and I believe it was a very bad idea. He'll probably be back in the ER in the next few hours, I imagine.
