So, I finally succumbed. :)

Putting this up here so it's easier to see..... If you want a .pdf of any fic, please don't hesitate to ask!

I am also slowly adding Supernatural and Avengers and some Buffy/Angel/Firefly fic to my AO3 account.

My older Buffy work (like Changes) is at my secondary account on AO3, scarecrow_horses.



List particulars. )

ETA: Now with summaries! Gods help us. Don't let them put you off!


Supernatural )



Buffy/Angel/Firefly )




Marvel Verse )


Aaaaaand......that's all for now.

[livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose did it, and I replied in comments, and it seemed so fitting, so....

Grab the book nearest you, turn to page 117. The second sentence will be your life for 2017.

I traveled with my pack and my own following

Aeschylus - The Libation Bearers
Spoken by Orestes to Clytaemestra

It's my dad's copy, that he used in college when he came home after the war and was learning to be an anesthetist. I've been reading it over, just lately, really enjoying the language.

I'm back! Heh.

We had an ice storm, starting Thursday night. Fortunately, not a killer storm like we had way back in 2007, which destroyed trees and took the power down for almost a week. We just got a sort of glazing, this time around, and the streets are basically clear, and the power only went out a couple times, briefly, over night.

No damage this year, so glad! )


Now on to the challenge! Not as interesting a one, to me, as the others, but....

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

I am definitely setting the goal of *finishing* my space AU, Yesternight. My gods, I can't believe how long I've been writing it. I'm *so close*, but as usual, lately, I seem to seize up at the penultimate moment. So frustrating! I hope to finish it before my birthday, in April - long before! And I really, really want to write more in general this year.

Personally - I need to get up and move. I am getting older, and exercise needs to be a regular thing for me. It's just very hard to motivate myself when it's just *me*. I can't afford a gym membership (though I'm looking into it), and I know if i were paying for that sort of thing, I'd use it, because - paying! So we shall see. But i really want that to be my personal 'thing' this year.

And there we go. Stay warm out there, folks - especially my Canadian flisties - seems like you guys are getting deep-frozen!

So, this challenge is:In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul.

My goodness, that sounds...dire. Heh. A mark on my sooooooul. (Yes, it just sounds a little pretentious. But in thinking it over...there is a mark, and I know what made it.)

Brace yourself!

Star Wars )

All of that, from one movie, one summer, forty years ago, when one small-town Missouri girl had her eyes opened wide. And never closed them again.

Who knows? :)
I've been lurking around in fandom and on LJ for a while now, not participating as much as I used to, just not quite feeling *up* to it, for some reason. I want to change that, though. So I'm going to be on here more, if I can, responding and talking more (fingers crossed), and also writing more, I hope hope hope.

I thought I'd start with the Snowflake Challenge, even though I'm several days behind. Some of that was sheer not-organized-ness, and some of that was the *incredibly* windy days we've been having taking out the interwebz for half my town. So my connection has been spotty.

I was also made aware that, for some weird reason, my sticky 'master fic post' was suddenly thrust into prominence as a 'new' post, who knows why. LJ sure seems to be getting unstable. I was puzzled but pleased by the comments, and it did prompt me to update my 'Marvel 'verse' entries, so yay!

Now - here we go with the first of the Snowflake Challenge...challenges. *snerk*

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

Okie-dokie.... )

So, there we go! I'm going to be doing them as quickly as possible to catch up, so expect several this Thursday-Sunday. I hope i'll be seeing and hearing and talking to more of my lovely flist this year; hope this helps me get that off to a good start. :)

ETA: I just realized that LJ spontaneously reposted my Master post. WTH. So i'm going to lock that one and make it private so nobody by me sees two. If I delete it, I'll lose the comments there, which I don't want to do. LJ! Stop being weird!!

First snow of the new year. Only a couple inches, but it's cold as all hell out there - single digits! The gog loves it, though; she runs around in the yard, doing bronco bucks and generally just acting like a goof. We take out the squeaky snake and have a romp!


So last August, I posted Who With Ill Stars are Curst, kind of my 'answer' to the notion in CA:CW that Steve (and Sam) had been searching for Bucky for *two years*, and never seen him in all that time.

A few days ago, I posted the Bucky POV to that story (now a 'verse!), and didn't post anything here, as I was tired and kinda meh. But I thought I should do that. :)

That Heart, Which Others Bleed For, Bleed For Me. I was very pleased to have littlesolnyshka from Tumblr give me a little help with the Romanian/Bucharest bits.

And of course, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for my beta, as always.

I'm going to be doing the Snowflake challenge, as well, because I really want to be *present* in fandom, more than i have been in the last couple years. Starting (late!) this weekend.

*smooches you all*

Hullo!

Well, it's finally autumn-like out here. Trees mostly bare, windy, some rain and *cold*. Cold enough to make sweaters and gloves feel good, to make me turn up the electric blanket and to put woodsmoke in the air. Lovely!

And I've just posted the second, Bucky POV to 'Trap-Neuter-Release'. More cats and more flirting! AO3 only, since the other part is over there only, as well.

As always - thank you, dear [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for all your beta help and general cheerleading. :)

Expect to be Scratched.

Where I work, 'farm jobs' are constant and ongoing. I talk to a lot of farmers, among other people. So this seemed kinda....inevitable. Hehe.

Steve is a North Dakota wheat farmer. Bucky is just wanting to feel like he's come home from the war. What else, but hitch-hike out to Steve's family farm and...hope for the best? :)

Beta'd by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens, as always.

Okay, so - drabble last, good cause first. Ian is a ftm trans kid (well, 19), and one of the Monstrous Bebe's oldest friends. She met him in...seventh grade? I think? I dunno. Anyway - Ian's been taking T for about six months, and is trying to get a top (mastectomy) surgery. And so has a go-fund-me page set up.

If you can please donate, or please signal-boost...that would be awesome. Ian's a great kid, dealing with a lot of crap (some family stuff, some depression/anxiety), and this would be a big step up in helping with his self-esteem issues as well as just...living a better life.

Ian's Top Surgery.
Thank you, my dear flist, for any help you can give.


The drabble is for [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble's prompt 'Leather'. And I went old school - Spike/Xander. :) [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens did the beta *of course*. (And [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou did one, too - old-school David/Christian! Leather.)

This is the 600 word edition i wrote (and DH beta'd), but it's not at the comm because the limit there is 500 words. (And i worked 'til 11, it's past 2 a.m., and my brain is toast, so i could *not* cut it to 500. So DH did. SHE IS AWESOME. Read her edited version at the comm

Look at that, another post. And I'm...really annoyed! My header image is gone, and I can't seem to get it to show again no matter what I do. I had it uploaded to 'Scrapbook' on LJ, and it's been displaying fine for ages. Suddenly, it vanishes! I re-uploaded, put it up on another site...nothing! ARRGH.

Also, Scarecrow Horses is gone. Not sure what's up with *that*, either - I don't think we forgot to pay, so.... *flails about*

I am so frustrated. Anyway. A month ago, Cat went to New York for a tattoo con, and stayed over a few days to see things like Coney Island, MOMA, etc. He had a grand time, ate some amazing food, and brought back wee gifties. :) Here's one of mine, bought from a street vendor outside MOMA: The Avengers...as cats! )

And on that note - I have a new ficlet to post. I loved Civil War (Avengers movie), but found the timeline hard to swallow. Bucky has been gone for *two years*? Steve (and Sam) haven't seen him in *two years*? That just seemed...wrong. So, i had to fix that. :)

On AO3



It seemed like Steve only caught up with Bucky when Sam wasn't around.... )

Hope to have the website back up in a day or so, if anybody out there can help with the header thing....? *smooches*

Final-fucking-ly, right? Yeesh. I'm almost...ashamed? of how long it's taken me? But on the other hand...this is how long it's taken me. I just dunno.

Anyway - thank you, all, who are still reading, for continuing to read. I do appreciate your long-suffering.

I'm going to make a 'personal' post tomorrow and talk about some random things, but for now, this is it. [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens did the tidying and polishing, as always. Thanks! :)

Hullo, all.

It's the wettest, rainiest spring *ever*. I love it, but *man*. My basement's never going to dry out. My mint, blackberry canes, and assorted other things are thriving, though.

So, I talked in my last post about my Aunt dying, and about the recordings I had that I was listening to. I made a little mp3 out of one of them. )

Also, I posted an AU Steve/Bucky fic about Steve the cat-rescue/artist and Bucky the vet who loves cats. A pre-relationship kind of thing I intend to expand. It's only at AO3 - i'm being so lazy. Trap-Neuter-Release.

So there we go, that's all i got. :)

And I'm tired of it.... )


So, there's that. In better, or at least, more interesting news...I organized a donation thing at my work for a local food bank, and we raised 150 dollars, which equals 750 meals for kids, seniors, and families in the Ozarks. That was pretty cool.

I also got a dozen or so blackberry cane seedlings in the mail from the Conservation dept., and I thought i had kind of killed them (they lived on my back porch in a bucket for two weeks), but I got them in the ground last week and they're thriving! My milkweed is coming up great, too, for the monarchs.

And last but not least, I posted another bit of 'Cracktrailer' fic over at AO3 - it's a pre-Crash 'verse 'Jason and Christian in the last months of high school' thing. I...shall link that momentarily when AO3 is back up.

And it's up! Alma Mater.

Still writing, still reading, still here. *waves*

Hi, people. Apologies for the long-ass wait and...this is not the last chapter.

I'm just so irritated with myself and how fucking *slowly* i'm writing, anymore, that i was like 'screw it, this is a good place to break'. So I did. So here you go.

As always, thank you, DH - you are the ultimate beta. :)

Guys, it's a little embarrassing how ga-ga I am for Bucky Barnes. And, to be honest, for Sebastian Stan. The man is fucking adorable. ANYWAY...some of you have probably seen the head-canon he posted about Bucky and his backpack (seen in the Civil War trailer....)

And it got me thinking, and so...to writing. So, here - a little under a thousand words about...all that.

Hullo, flisties.

Just thought i'd give a wave. I don't post much, I know, unless I'm updating something, and I should probably do a wee bit *more* posting but.... I feel as though my day to day is not variable enough, nor interesting enough to make posts about. And I'm not much into random rumination....

But, here we go. :)

TV i'm watching.... )

So - anybody watching these? :)

I'm also working on the last chapter of Yesternight, and on a Steve/Bucky AU fic, and on various other bits and bobs. And looking forward to being able to have my windows open all day and all night. And having health insurance for the first time in ever (plus dental!!).

So, dear flist people - how are you all?

Wow, hi, and holy damn, people. Three months? I'm so sorry! Sheesh. At last, though, eh? And i'm pretty sure that there is only one more chapter after this one, so - here it is, the penultimate chapter of my rather 'epic' Space AU!

*does a little dance*

[livejournal.com profile] darkhavens of course did the beta-ing. :) She's awesome.

So, here we go, thank you my so-patient readers, we are almost there!

A very blessed Season to all of you out there on my flist! Whatever you're celebrating - even if it's just the end of the work week - may you be happy in it!
*smooches and blessings and hugs and love for you all*


It's been a very weird December for where I live. Up into the seventies about 2/3rds of the time, and then some nights down below freezing, only to have it go up again! We also had rain, lightning, and thunder a few days ago. The animals - and the plants - don't know what the hell is going on. But at least my heating bill is small!

I hope to have the newest chapter of the Space AU out *soon* - like, in a few days. This will be very close to the last chapter - very possibly, the penultimate chapter of the story! Thanks, everyone, for sticking with me.

I leave you with our Xmas tree this morning (the black lump is Annalee-the-dog's head) and my very favorite Xmas carol. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
*smishes*

Yule Tree! )
