My laptop won't start.

I tried everything; took out the battery and AC adapter, switched the memory cards, tried them one at a time...Nothing. Nothing.

It's pretty old and crappy, but this is a little out of the blue. I'm going to try it with a friend's battery and charger, and then try to take it apart once I get a screwdriver and some electrical tape. I have a netbook and the computers at the school library; all I need is five minutes to get all my files on a disk.

I have my school stuff on a flash drive; I'm not worried about that. But my fics, dozens of them, are all on the hard drive. The only ones on my DropBox are the old crappy ones. This may sound stupid, but that's what I'm really worried about. I was literally 13 words away from finishing a series of drabbles that I was really proud of, that I was going to send over to [ profile] loquaciousquark this weekend. ARGHHH


Anyway, I just needed to vent. I'm sure I'll be able to get the files from the hard drive, but still. SO. NERVEWRACKING.

Hard drive might have died, there are two ways it can happen, slowly and suddenly.

either it'll slowly have problems on start up which get worse with time or, it just won't turn on.

OH NOOOOOOOOO NO NO omg. That has happened to me one time a couple years ago, and I still remember the crazy anxiety I felt until I managed to coerce it to boot long enough to retrieve my fic. I just remember the disproportionate fear of "oh no my papers OH NO MY FIC"

and WOMAN. SEND ME THOSE DRABBLES ASAP. as--as soon as you get them safe, i mean D:

See, I was smart with my school stuff! They're all on a flash drive because I have to print them from the library computers.


The drabbles were my speculations on the human lives of the shinigami captains, given their appearance, characteristics, and how long ago they died. Kenpachi was a Mongol invader, Toshiro died in the American occupation, Yamamoto and Unohana were half-mythical kings and queens out of Japan's history, and a bunch others. And they were ALL exactly one hundred words. Do you know how much I suck at drabbles? DO YOU?
