Hallo! I'm kinda behind, huh? Ah, well. Still plugging away.

It keeps going warmish and sunny here, then frigid as fuck. Monstrous Bebe has a yucky cold, and I'm tired to death of running the furnace (the dry air is killing me). But! It's February, and perhaps soon I'll get my tax return and some new glasses, yay!

I also posted an old Spander fic over at my scarecrow_horses AO3 - Letters. I thought that was on my LJ, too, but it's not! So weird. I need to pick up the pace on posting all those old fics.

And now - challenge seven! It is: In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list.... Create something.

(It was a very long challenge, I snipped it.)

So, I've been kicking this idea around, about Bucky. What if he was kept in cryo not because he was too violent/to hide him/they forgot about him/etc., but because his imperfect, Zola-made serum didn't work quite right? It makes him fast and strong, sure, but his immune system sucks, and the mask he wore was for filtration, to keep him from breathing in tainted air, and the outfit and gloves and such were to keep him from touching tainted surfaces..... Basically, Bucky gets sick.

All the damn time.

Sick Day )

Now, *finally*, on AO3!

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for the quick beta and fix. :)

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

So, this is one of the fics i started literally years ago that I know i'll never finish. So - why not let the poor thing see the light of day?

AND - a note I wanted to add about the Supernatural episode 9/22, where the angel came in and committed suicide 'for Castiel'. The little tag said it was in Dixon, MO - which is about six miles down the highway from where I live. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.01 square miles (2.62 km2), all of it land. The population was 1,549 at the 2010 census.

It just...amuses me.

And...Show finale. HOLY. FUCK. I am still reeling a bit. And so blown away by the boy's performances, and Crowley's last little speech, and Gadreel, and...and....
DAMN. :)

Right, then - here we go. Not beta'd, of course.

Big )

Yup, that's all. :)

Hello, flist!
I have missed posting. Somehow, i have suddenly become the slowest writer in fandom, heh.

Before the fic, however, i have a rec! I probably had more, but oh, my, i seem to have misplaced some things. Anyway - I loved season six of Show, and this meta on it really brought home all the *reasons* i loved it, only saying it much better than I could. So please go have a look, it's chock full of links and quotes (stuff i missed when i was dodging spoilers) and references to classic movies. It rocks.
Supernatural Noir:Season Six in Review by [livejournal.com profile] missyjack

Here at last is my [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction fic for [livejournal.com profile] etaureau. Which is so horribly, horribly late. I'm so sorry! I hope the fic makes up for the lateness.

The title is from Elegy by Siegfried Sassoon. The whole poem is so Xander, I thought it perfect. Beta'd by the ever-fantastic [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens - i would be drowning in em-dashes if no for her. :)

Loyal Love has Deathless Wings )

A happy Fourth to all my American flisties - a happy Monday to the rest! Our poor puppy-gog was terrified, so after about three minutes i came inside with her while the Bebe, her cousin, and Cat did the rest of the little stash we got.

RL-wise, I'm doing pretty good. Just dodging the heat. But there are compensations - popsicles and fresh watermelon! :)

I feel so accomplished. Fic! Again! Yay! :)
Of course, this fic was *started* waaaaaay back at the beginning of season two. Sad, i know. But i've finally got it done and here it is and hell yeah, yay.

Beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens, of coz, who continues to be horrifically evol at every turn.
*eyes folder full of Inception fic* Dear gods - she could enable Jesus to kinky gay internet sex. And probably has. The title is from the movie of the same name staring James Cagney because, well...James Cagney rocks. :)

So - on with the show. Sam/Dean, Spike/Xander, drinking and swearing and killing of things. Good times!

Oh, fandom. FANDOM! Sometimes, you are just the most amazing thing ever. For example....

[livejournal.com profile] katekat1010 likes the No More Snakes and Ladders, the post-everything Spander story [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and i wrote years ago. *2005!!*

She liked it so much that she did THIS! A collection of gorgeous, amazing artwork, one for each chapter of the story, and two more 'bonus' ones, plus this adorable Tiny Tim icon.

Rere and i are both truly, truly overwhelmed. It's just...amazing! So i had to share.

I also wanted to share this. Monstrous likes to sit behind me, on her Dad's computer, and watch vids and listen to music while she chats with her friends and stuff. These two vids are her current favorites that she literally watches over and over and over.

Twilight review that's just insanely fun, and Twilight trailer spoof that makes me giggle every time.

In between? My Chemical Romance and Paramore. Oh, teh joys of the tween set. :)

Wow, i'm just....overwhelmed.
[livejournal.com profile] katekat1010 has made an utterly lovely wallpaper/cover for my Spander fic, 'Letters'. It's just...beautiful.

So please go over to [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan and take a look. She's also made some wonderful icons, *see above!* and pic collages of 'favorite moments'. All in all, some really awesome stuff!

Thank you thank you, so much!

In other news, we're hoping to be in the new house by Thursday. Dear gods, i have *so much to do*.

Wheeeeeeee!! More Spander!

And people - as of right *now*, [livejournal.com profile] fire_fic's PayPal total is *over* three thousand dollars. And bidding won't end until the 31st!! I'm in awe. There is an amazing amount of people offering a ton of stuff, and *not* just fic. Go check out the update post at the comm and see what you want to buy!

The Monstrous Bebe's class saw the San Jose Taiko Japanese drumming troupe. Why didn't we have cool field trips like that when *i* was in school?

As usual, I give my utmost thanks to my Holy Triumvirate:[livejournal.com profile] darkhavens, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou.

Wheeeeeeee, Spander!

I promised this fic to [livejournal.com profile] witling when I did Sweet Charity back in the Spring. Finally, I'm writing! And posting. I have no idea how many parts there will be. Spander sexin', drug use, violence - Apoco-fic at its finest, people!

Sweet Charity is still going strong, so head on over and make a bid! *Don't forget that [livejournal.com profile] fire_fic is open for bids until the 31st of October! New people keep signing up with offers, so check them both out!*
Beta'd by the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens and given the green light by [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou. You guys rock.

Yes! It's fic! I've been so *non-fic-posty* lately it's been weird. And it's been weirding me *out*, but hey. I will take [livejournal.com profile] reremouse's advice and stop *thinkging* about it so much.

So, this is for [livejournal.com profile] ponders_life and i hope, i hope, i hope i got close to the mark. It's okay to say you hate it! *please don't hate it!!*
Ahem. Okay, that's enough of *that*!

Thank you, dear Ponders, for bidding and donating - you're a peach! Sweet Charity still goes on, in various forms, so why not consider contributing? :)

This is Adult, this is Spander...what more is there to say? Oh! There's this. Most especial thanks and love to [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou for reading and encouraging, and to [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens the bestest beta *evah*. *Mwah!*

OMGETA!: Something in this fic was stolen from [livejournal.com profile] _beetle_!! She told me i could! And i forgot to say! Thank you thank you, _beetle_, you are the BEST!! EVAH!!

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!

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.

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!

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.
