Dad looks to be on the mend 48 hours with no ER visits. Catheter out today, so we’ll see if he can keep it out overnight. Today I had a D&C & uterine ablation. Why? Because since June, I have had a period that lasts at least 14 days, is so heavy that I feel like I am in a horror movie (for all 14 days in a row), and the break between periods is about 14 days… My family finishes menopause at age 60, leaving me with 7 of the next 14 years to be spent bleeding. And I have a girlfriend whom I adore, and I am seriously tired of not feeling up to making love about half the time. Also? Bleeding that much makes you anemic in the extreme.
Title: Thanksgiving Quickie
Fandom: Rizzoli & Isles, Jane/Maura
Rating: M/NC-17 (yay!)
Summary: The title pretty much summarizes it well
Notes: Written for a fanfic challenge “Thanksgiving” and cross posted in a number of locations
Jane heard Maura ask Angela if the older Rizzoli woman could watch the rolls she was just about to put in the oven while the doctor went to freshen up a bit before guests started to arrive.
“Of course, of course, honey, you’ve done most of the cooking today. The least I can do is keep it from burning!” was Angela’s gracious reply.
Jane had been listening for just such an opportunity to sneak into the bedroom before her girlfriend. She got up from the couch and quietly headed to the master bedroom and waited for Maura to arrive.
Oh Lord. Give me coffee to change the things I can change, and red wine to accept the things I can’t.
and wisdom to know when to just reach for the vodka instead.

our sanctuary by fressamour
It’s an unspoken but a distinctly obvious rule between them; when they’ve had an argument and one is ready to forgive; the yoga room is where they meet.
It’s the first place Maura goes after their fight and she waits diligently for her wife to come to her. She hears her detective drunkenly fumbling around their home in search of her.
"Maura?" Jane calls out in the foyer.
The breath of relief that comes from her wife’s lungs is nearly earsplitting when Jane realizes her newly pregnant wife simply settled in their sanctuary.
The detective’s inebriated mind found the insecurities she had tucked away of Maura finally seeing her for the borderline alcoholic that she is and leaving her; an insecurity not even her sober mind could catalog.
By the look of tenderness glazing Maura’s eyes, it’s obvious she never even considered leaving.
But Jane gulps down the sight of her wife waiting for her as she always does whenever she drunkenly picks a futile argument.
She stays quiet in the doorway for a moment and their eyes meet briefly. An apology written all over Jane’s face and forgiveness etched on Maura’s.
Jane doesn’t say anything when she removes her shoes and joins her wife in Child’s Pose on the embedded yoga mats on the floor.
“I’m sorry…” The words slip out of Jane’s mouth groggily but sincere with repentance. “I was an asshole.” She flinches at her inability to eclipse her vulgar language when drunk.
A half an hour of silence bounces between them with excruciating slowness before Maura adjusts to a kneeling position. Jane mimics the maneuver eagerly. “I forgive you,” Maura finally says. “But only if you seek professional help for your pestilent drinking habits before the baby is born.”
Jane opens her mouth but is silenced.
Maura continues as she raises her index finger, quickly putting a hold on her wife’s protest. She’s not finished yet. "Our child will not have a drunk for a mother, Jane."
"And…" hazel eyes meet the vulnerable brown ones and both of their faces soften phenomenally at the tranquilizing effect they have on one another. "If you allow me to infuse science and stop insisting I rely on my intestines for our next five cases together.” She finishes only half-jokingly to ease the tension between them.
Jane lets out her bated breath with a small thankful laugh. “Deal.”
