Well, I said i was gonna do an epilogue, and i did! Finally. Just at the one-month mark. Sheesh

Anyway, thanks go out to the usual suspects - [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for the beta/once over thingy and [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou for the bouncing up and down. :)

It's still nicely frigid here, but my pocketbook suffers as that means the electric bill is sky high. Blah! The next house we live in? Gas heat. Jayzus.

So - epilogue! Thanks for being patient - it's a little strange, as epilogues go, i think, but it's what the boys gave me, so... Enjoy!

At last at last! Heeeee. There *will* be an epilogue! I have that already sketched out. But this is the end of the *story* story.

As always, my undying thanks to [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for all their help and encouragement. Thank you, ladies! :)

I know! I am so terrible, making you all wait so long. But...i just had so much trouble writing this past two or three weeks. Dunno - maybe the holiday and such just got me all...discombobulated. I'm gonna have pictures from that up soon... :)

Anyway - snow! Ice! Cooooold temperatures! At least we're having some *winter* weather. And to hear the weathermen talk, it's like 'the end is nigh'!! People - please. We've had mild winters, but we haven't like - evolved past being able to survive them! Sheesh. It's just a little *snow*. And ice.
*rolls eyes*

Anyway - my undying and most sincere thank you to [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for unflagging support and beta-work and for always telling me the truth. And to [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens, as well, for helping me over a little hump. And Snow!! You always cheer me on - and up. *smoooooch*

*waves* I'm so...boring lately. Only posting when i update, not talking at all...sheesh! It's a wonder anybody's still on my flist.

But! I did get to enjoy a lovely, lovely visit from [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou and her daughter [livejournal.com profile] sixteen_letters. We strolled around a nearby cemetery, had *bread*, watched a couple movies and talked. About fandom. Wheeeeeeee! Always the absolute best, to just hang out with Snow and chatter. I luffs her.

Today is [livejournal.com profile] pretties_4u's birthday! Happy, happy birthday! *loves*

And ummmm...what else? OH! Yis. [livejournal.com profile] reremouse has posted another part of her sublime, as yet untitled Xander/Larry fic. Really, really worth checking out. For the snark, for the babble, for the angst. For the slash! Wheeee!
Go, read, comment, love.

Oh, finally! I've felt so odd not posting Spander, and *not* posting this! Heh. I hope you all remember where we are and what's going on... Sorry i left it so long!

Cold and rainy here today - perfect weather! And tomorrow - the vote! I want one of those 'I voted' images to stick in my lj again... I'll need to go look through my old posts and find it.

Anyway - as always, thank you [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for your time and effort. Enjoy!

Yes, finally, more. Sorry my schedule for this got all wonky. And...wow, i have like - *nothing* to report. Just...very dull, me. And really - i don't think you all want to hear about the weather and fuzzy socks *again*. Heh.

I might be getting a cold. *sniffle*

I'm sure many, many of you have seen this, but it bears reposting - opt-out lj feed and syndication info. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens and a few others for all the links and instructions.

[livejournal.com profile] reremouse gave this the once-over, as always. Thank you thank you! She also posted part four of 'Small Imperfections' which, really - i cannot recommend highly enough.
Food, drink, dead guy. Good times.

I have been remiss! Also, distracted. Working on another story and it's really just *eluding* me. So frustrating. But this! It just poured right out, easy as pie. Guess i need to spend a little more time in Neverland!

And people on my flist reporting snow!! Oh, so jealous! It hasn't frozen here yet, but soon, or so they say. *longs*

Thanks for being so patient, everybody.
And thanks, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for the usual.

My my, what a day! Crazy goings-on with livejournal and all this nonsense about 'sponsored communities'...gah!

I swear, LJ is just becoming so damn annoying. Read the post linked in that one to get the full story. Sheesh.

Chilly again, rainy a little, things that make me *happy*! I'm wearing my flannel pj pants! I'm huddling over the space heater in the mornings when the Monstrous Bebe gets ready for school! All, all good.

Speaking of the Monstrous Bebe...clickity to see her school picture. OMG, she's just... Way too pretty and grown-up and...*smart*. Help!! *Yis, i'm bragging. I get to do that, i'm her mum!*

Anyway - more Neverland! Sorry for the delay. Life...happens. :)

Thanks, as always, to [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for her excellent poking and prodding and back-and-forthing. And you guys!! You rock. Feedback on 'Drowning Not Waving' is just...awesome!

So, rain and rain and *wind* and tornados. All lovely and then, of course, *not* lovely. The next town over got some pretty bad damage and luckily the grand-parents-in-laws that live there weren't hurt.

It's nice and cool out now, misty and scraps of cloud - very nice.

I've been watching season one of Supernatural over again, since i caved and bought the dvds. Such fun! Such angst! Such pretteh! Heh. Deleted scenes and whatnot - i luff!

Anyway, here's the next bit. Hope you all enjoy! Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for the once-over.

Ahhhhhhh, it's so *nice* today! All this week, really. Cool and overcast and rainy, chilly at night. I have on socks! I'm so excited for summer to be *over*. I really hate that season.

We had an animal crawl under the house and die. Gah. So horrifying. You could, of course, smell it in the house... Yuck. Stupid possum. Had to get under there and drag it out - such fun! Lucky for me, dinner-time hospital talk all through my childhood has pretty much given me immunity to stuff like that. Still not *nice*, though.

I feel like i should rec stuff and talk about stuff but...i got nothin'! It's so sad. Oh wait!
There's this lovely fic by [livejournal.com profile] hotspur18 - post everything, Illyria/Spike/Wes. Sort of. It's just amazingly cool, very different. Have a look! Seven Bridges Road.

And now, Neverland! Thank you thank you, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse, for the usual. You rock. And special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose for her help, too. *smoooch*

Hallo! Seems like ages... Time seems to get away from me with alarming frequency. *Anyway* Before we do the updates, I wanted to link to a really interesting interview I saw on PBS last week.

Firstly, the show is Bill Moyers - On Faith and Reason. I like Bill Moyers, he seems sensible and open to all kinds of things. Also, he gives good interview.
He was talking to a UK author, Jeanette Winterson. They were discussing faith, then heroes of old *re: Greek/Roman heroes* and writing. She had some - to me - *very* interesting things to say about heroes. Things that brought Spike and Angel and Lindsey and Wesley very strongly to mind. She also talked about writing, and while she's a 'profic' writer, what she said applies to fanfic, as well. The entire transcript of the interview is here. But i wanted to put a couple of my favorite quotes in this post.

On Heroes )

On Writing )

I hope it's interesting to you guys, as well! I'm thinking i need to get her book about Atlas...

Now, to the updates!
Chapter Nine of 'Drowning Not Waving' - so glad so many people are sticking with this very different *for us* and rather dark Spander story. Thank you!
And the nominee for best performance by an actor in a leading role...

And now, Neverland. Many, many thanks, as always, to [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for her skills as beta and cheerleader. :)

Yes, two updates! It seems to work out that way. Anyway, you can find chapter eight of Drowning Not Waving there at [livejournal.com profile] douse_house. Be warned!

This Neverland update is a little short, i admit, but hey...sometimes that's just the way the storyline breaks! Was sick again, better again - getting so very tired of it but man, every test i've taken is 'normal normal normal' so...wtf? Whatever, blah. Don't wanna dwell. Cool and lovely here, sixties in the night, overcast and rainy and just - *nice*. I'm ready for autumn, ready to turn the ac off for *good*.

To everybody out there who said they were gonna read 'Peter Pan' because of this - or who might be thinking about it...that just makes me *smile*. I am such a geek.

Hullo! Two updates in two days! That's not like me. :)

However...i wanted to inject a teeny rant here first. Nothing too vitriolic, just... I've been seeing around my....i dunno, reading list? or whatever...not necessarily my flist, 'cause i follow a lot of links and such... Basically, the sentiment i keep seing is 'Well, *this show* is kinda cool but it's not Buffy...

And man, that makes me kind of...annoyed. And disappointed, 'cause - *of course* it's not Buffy! And if every new show has to *be* Buffy than guys - you're gonna be stuck watching your DVDs for the rest of your life. No, these show's *aren't* Buffy or Angel, but - they're *good*, some of them. So take off the Buffy glasses and give 'em a chance!!

That is all.


Now that i've vented my spleen, as it were...onto the fic!

Hullo, lovely flist! And assorted, random folk, whoever you may be. Wheee!! Right now, I am internally bouncing all over like a weasel on speed. Externally, i'm sipping cold water and feeling sorry for myself but *internally*...wheeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

The visit with [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou was cancelled, alack and alas, because her household was struck down with illness. And so was *i*, blah. Day and a half on the couch with fever and whatnot, so not fun. Doing better now, though.

The biggest *wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee* however is that i'm coming to you live from my new computer! The old was...well, last time we did a disc de-frag, in the hopes of making it work a little better, it was close to fifty percent unrecoverable, bad sectors. And it was taking almost a half-hour to reboot. And it was randomly shutting off. And i could go and do the dishes in the time it was taking for the browser to open. So. New computer! I'm all *zooooooooooooooooooooom!!* :) Plus, spiffy flat LCD monitor, so teh bomb.

So that's why i haven't been around as much. Hopefully in the next day or so i'll catch up on everything and go through my backlog of bookmarks and whatnot. If you put something out there you know i should have read, link me! I don't wanna miss stuff! :)

And now, time for some more Neverland. It's a short chapter, i know. I haven't been able to write for a couple weeks, since Word was as fuxored as everything else, and i'm afraid i'll run out of stuff to post too fast if i post my usual big chapters. So - bear with me!

*hugs you all*

Hallo, flist! I've felt so odd, not having fic to post. Sort of flaily! Heh. But summer always makes me feel so...weird. At loose ends and lazy 'cause i hate the heat so much.

Anyway - this is going to be a bit of an odd thing. It's a little AU, as you'll see... I certainly hope you enjoy it. I'm annoyed i couldn't come up with a better title.
Many thanks, of course, to the usual suspects - you know who you are! :)
