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.

I'm currently working for the Rural fire department, doing admin-type stuff, and will also be organizing and basically coming up with their new fire safety and prevention/awareness program for the elementary schools.

I will *most likely* be doing that via Americorp/VISTA, but as the Admin Assistant left and starts *her* new job next week, her spot is open. I'm filling in right now, but i'm *fingers crossed* that I can interview and maybe do that job, instead. HEALTH BENEFITS. Plus better pay. Either way, I'm there for at least a year, if not more. It's terrifying and exciting. :)

Anyway - I *thought* there was only one more chapter of 'Yesternight', but HA. I was wrong. As always, Darkhavens is the most awesome person ever, and I'd never get anything posted if it was for her awesome skills and encouragement.

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!!

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! :)

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.

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!

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

To those of you who practice, and for everyone else - Happy Halloween!

It's grey, chilly and drizzling here - a typical Missouri Halloween, heh. I have more memories of trick or treating in my winter coat than anything else.

But it's still quite lovely, and I have spicy candles burning and some candy just in case, I've lit a votive to those who've passed on and left a small offering for the Fair folk and any wandering shades. So I'm all set for a quiet night.

I am, once again, watching 'Baby', and omg, it just keeps getting better. So many tiny details, so many wonderful moments, I just.... The boys just driving, eating, talking, *laughing*. They are in their element, they are, as Sam says, *home*, and it's so wonderful to see what the life of hunter - *their* life - was and is. It's sad, but also sweet, and ultimately it's what made and shaped them, and continues to inform them. And it is lovely.

I'm also listening to the song Young!John was playing (Someday Soon, sung by Judy Collins in 1969) and the lyrics are so *very perfect*. It's like they were written for Mary. No wonder she liked that song. Plus, you know - Judy Collins. What a honeyed voice! I'm going to share the lyrics below - they're lovely.

So, my flist - what are you doing tonight? What was your favorite thing about the episode? I think my favorite was the green cooler and its multiple uses. :) Also, Sam and Dean just being *brothers*, and Castiel (off screen) in Sam's room, binge-watching 'Orange is the New Black'. Enjoy the night! Be safe! Blessed be!!

So blow, you old Blue Northern, Blow my love to me.... )

I know it's been a *very* long time, and i am so very sorry. Things in my life are making me not focus on - or not be rally *able* to focus on - writing as much as i want (and need), and that sucks.

And i may post about these things, or i may not, but rest assured, this story *will* finish. Thank you, all, my loyal readers - i do appreciate it.

And thank you, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for always coming through on the beta.

Sooooo - way back last year - last *June* - there was a fandom works auction to benefit a dear person here in fandom who needed help. And I offered up fic, and people bid, and people won!

And I didn't get fic out in a timely manner. Because I suck like that. But i have been *working* on them (among other fic), and am finally *done* with the first one! Whoooo!

So this fic is for [livejournal.com profile] without_me, who bid on a J2/Wincest fic. And this is what happened with the prompt! I do hope it measures up. :)

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for your usual awesome beta, and [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou for your usual awesome cheering-on.

I hope the translation is good - the site wouldn't do a reverse translation for me to check, and neither would any other site i tried - it just kept putting the same words in Hindi in the 'translate to English' box. Arrgh.

Finally! Sincerest apologies, my dear readers. I kinda suck at this sometimes. Mostly, the delay has been me being a dork and not actually *concentrating* on writing like I need to be. A very miniscule part has been my poor beta, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens having computer woes to end all computer woes.

But now we have more! And we're getting closer to the end! And and and....

I am so very grateful for all the readers out there who are sticking with it, and again - apologies for my dragging ass.

I have not seen *one* fandom take on this, it's just...crazy. And sad. Bullwinkle was a favorite cartoon when we were kids!

Oh, Show - how i love you.

Well, i am, as my dad would say, 'feeling puny'. So no work for me today (or yesterday), and i thought i'd get my updates all...updated.

I posted another ficlet at [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble, a continuation of the same story. It's over at the comm for now - I'll be putting it on my lj soon enough. It's nice to see drabbles and ficlets going up over there!

Also the Space AU! Which, you guys. I feel like such a dork, dragging it out so long, but it's not deliberate! It's just...me. I'm glad my faithful readers are still hanging on, though I totally understand if people want to wait until it's complete to read, too.

I think a couple more chapters will see us through to the end, so not long now, I promise!
Some 'not English' spoken in this chapter, so that's this:

'Tudo bom. - Everything good.

Yes, at last! I am so pokey, it's horrible. But, this fic *will* be finished, and sooner rather than later.

In other news - it's cold, it's sleet-drizzling, my job is tedious, our Xmas tree is awesome. :) We got a nice, big, fat cedar this year, which really - yay! I love a good cedar tree. I'll post a picture soon - before the actual day. 'Cause i know you're all dying to see, heh.

I know, i know. But i'm still damn *giddy* about Show, and episode 200, and i don't care who knows it. :)

I think the *most* fun thing, outside of the episode itself, is seeing all the 'outside' reactions to the show/the episode, and getting to hear remarks from show runners, writers, producers, and the actors themselves.

So, here are a few links that just made my day.

Supernatural: the Cast and Creators Looks Back.... - some great quotes from Kripke, et al, about the episode and why they think it's lasted so long.

Supernatural at 200: The Road So Far, an Oral History. At 'Variety', no less, and just awesome.

And last but not least, the 'review' and ramble that made me laugh, and made me cry....Now That's How You Do a 200th Episode!. From the lovely people at Fangasm. From whom I now have to buy *all the books*. All the books, people. :)

So - i've said it before about Show, and I'll say it again - I have never not liked a season, and i'm hard put to say i *hate* any episode. There's always some redeeming moment or bit of canon or mythology. I'm unabashed and unashamed in my love for Show, and haters? Need not apply.

Boys - you done us proud. Kudos to the entire cast and crew and production/show runner/writer unit of Show for an amazing and wonderful episode that just kept surprising me, making me laugh and, in the end, making me cry.

A couple little spoilers here..... )

Suffice it to say, my fucking Show rocks, this episode was incredible, and I am even more in love than I was two hours ago. YAYAYAYAY!
