A Gun for Barns: New chapter posted

Part 3, Chapter 22 is now on AO3: We'll Be Together Again.

~ ~ ~

"Wait out here," Gunnar told Arcade and Boone. "I don't want you inside if things go badly. And if they do… do the best you can, I suppose. Get away fast."

Boone grabbed Gunnar's arm. "This better not be some kind of suicide mission."

"It isn't. Far from it. But you know yourself, things can go wrong. I hope this won't be one of those times."

Gunnar had left his pack in the Tops suite. He carried the handgun, all the stimpacks, and not much else. Fast and light. "My diary's back at the Tops, in case you need anything in it."

He and Boone stared at each other for a moment.

"Go on and kiss him," Arcade said impatiently.

Three Things on a Monday

Last (for now) of the Three Things memes!
[personal profile] mimerki gave me:

Teenagers
Most of them seem to have been brought up improperly? Like, not taught how to do laundry, how to cook*, how money works? How to talk to adults they're not related to? I mean cripes I can't be the only one, can I?

* Disclaimer: Getting my son to learn to cook did not turn out great BUT he can at least fend for himself and make grilled cheese sandwiches so it wasn't a total loss.


Patreon
OH HEY have I mentioned that I have a Patreon now?
Man I wonder what it would've been like if Patron had existed 10 years ago when I had a decent following on LJ. No knowing, really. Maybe would've turned out the same.
To me Patreon is still one of those ways to make money that is not steady, secure, or dependable, therefore scary, but it can work... and once again I really wish I could draw, because artists seem to do decently on Patreon but writers don't.


Patterns
I'll go with "craft patterns" here (there are other possibilities of course). I really do need them to figure out where to start, or for inspiration. Once I figure it out, it's easier; and of course the more I learn, the easier it is to figure out "oh, that's how they did that!" esp when just looking at a photo.
Huxrin, though, wow, she is great. She gets a picture from the internet and can figure out exactly how to make it. Get some newspapers for templates and go. She makes things custom fit to the wearer, usually herself, but she also makes things for commission. Like so.
