Um. So there was a Wimbledon final at the weekend which involved Roger Federer. And had Andy Roddick commentating - or in truth, talking non-stop for five days about how amazing Roger is and how great he is and how he only copes with being asked about 2009 because he has so much respect for Roger and even though it's been a million years since I wrote anything actually postable in tennis fic, I did a thing. Like, drink too much Pimms and bash angrily at my keyboard while Roger lost, and then spend two days spamming [ profile] kindoftrouble with emails going DOES THIS MAKE SENSE HOW CAN I MAKE MY DRUNKEN RAMBLINGS MAKE SENSE WHY DO I LOVE TENNIS PLAYERS WHEN THEY DO STUPID THINGS LIKE LOSING, ARGH.

In short, have fic. It's even go about 21% plot going on behind the PWP. Sort of. This is mostly the angry-that-he-lost bit; if I get the sequel, and the prequel, and the sequel-sequel done, there might be actual plot. Plus the other thing I'm about half-way through that isn't even in this series. Because apparently I'm writing tennis RPF again, god.

beautiful and drunk (singing softly to yourself)
- Andy Roddick/Roger Federer, explicit, 6093 words post-Wimbledon 2015 final, drunken hurt-comfort sex and Andy pining when he should know better.

I er, was about 50-80% Pimms at various times when I wrote it, so hopefully the editing-bashing means it at least vaguely makes sense.

Posting on AO3 is amazingly more nerve-wracking than here or the Pit of Voles. I'm going to go have a little sit down now.

I think I just messaged you regarding something along these lines. And now that I've seen this post I think it's happened at just the right time! It's so exciting that you're writing fic again!!!

No it's good; I'm excited that other people are excited! It's been so long since I actually posted tennis fic, I thought maybe there was no one left still interested! It's awesome that there's still a fandom around for it.

Have replied to your message. :)

When it's Wimbledon and you're nostalgic for tennis fic and you think, "Who was that tennis fic writer I used to love?" and go to her LJ and find out there is new (okay, new-as-of-a-year-ago) clo!fic and it's like you're a 15-year-old fangirl all over again. <3

:D Aw, thank you for this! Wimbledon has a habit of making me excited about tennis fic all over again too! Glad I could surprise with new fic - new stuff will get posted over on AO3 and there are a few more things in the works at the moment, so it might be worth keeping an eye out over there.
