Okay, so, this was written for [livejournal.com profile] wolfling, and the request was a timestamp of The Song of the Treadmill. It doesn't adhere 100 percent to the request, but close enough, i hope! Beta'd, of course, by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens.

The title is from A.E. Housman's More Poems.

I'm all excited all over again. Another podfic! I dunno why it's so flail-inducing, but it just *is*.

So - [livejournal.com profile] twasadark asked to make podfic of my Supernatural story The Song of the Treadmill, and of course i was flattered and said yes.

It's now available for download in several places, but i'll just give you all the one link.

Treadmill Podfic.

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] twasadark, so very much! It's lovely!

*twirls around*

ETA: And there is cover art! By [livejournal.com profile] cybel! You can see it here. :)

*waves tiredly*
See that icon? That is *so* me. But, i've work yet to do. The last couple days have been hardcore cleaning and packing and moving. Forty minute drive each way, unloading, more cleaning... Today was more of the same with added DSL and Cable-guy antics, which took much longer than anticipated.

Tomorrow - the great move-in, in which our beds and toiletries go to the new house! Wheeeeee! And computers, too. :)

So, i haven't been around, won't be for a couple more days, just lurking but man, so busy.
And so, so tired. Did i mention i was tired?

Anyway - back to getting my desk/computer ready to be loaded up in the morning.

I leave you with a teeny coda to 'The Song of the Treadmill'. [livejournal.com profile] marciaelena wanted to know what it was like when Dean killed the demon. This probably isn't enough to suit, but i hope it still satisfies!

*yawns more*
Okay, this is me, signing out.

Oh, i thought this would *never* come. Sheesh! I can't believe i took so long, writing this final chapter. But! Here it is. I hope it's up to snuff! And that it ends in a satisfying way for everyone who's stuck with me so far.

Thank you, as always, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for her excellent polish. And [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou for keeping me going.

Nochri is Hebrew for 'stranger' or 'foreigner'. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] marciaelena!

The stars are rolling in the sky,
The earth rolls on below,
And we can feel the rattling wheel
Revolving as we go.
Then tread away, my gallant boys,
And make the axle fly;
Why should not wheels go round about,
Like planets in the sky?

Hallo, hallo!

I feel a little...alone! My flist has been so quiet... But that's okay. [livejournal.com profile] keepaofthecheez has kept us all entertained with her picspam posts of boys. :) Well, okay - *a* boy, but sometimes *boys*, and...that's all good.

There has also been some batshitcrazy going on vis a vis Firefly, slash, and fringy lunacy but - it's hiatus! Seems like the weirdest shite comes to light when we don't have our 'stories' to keep us occupied. :)

Dearest [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens beta'd, as usual - yay! And [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou cheered me on, as usual. Double yay!

And [livejournal.com profile] reremouse finished Parts, her Spike/Xander genderswitch fic which is just *made* of win. Yay all around!

Thank you, everyone, for the wonderful and kind words about Haji-the-cat. They really helped. Cat was also very touched, as Haji was 'his boy', and he really felt the loss keenly those first few days. Thank you.

Our temperatures here went sixty-teens-sixty, so - March is in like a lion, i believe! Crazy stuff. Eight inches of snow down where my mom lives, but no tornadoes, yay!

Supernatural to get a fourth season - wheeeeeeeeee! :) I'm pleased.
My usual beta - Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens! - is off partying, so i had [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou give this a look-see. Thank you, bay-bee! *smooch*

DH usually manages to find *something*, though, hehe. If you all see anything, please point it out to me!

*i'm a bit nervous about his chapter. not sure why, just...yeah*
*bites nails*


*ETA*! Despite my atrocious wording, Snow is a *very good read-through person*! Damnit. :)

Anyway! Some wonderful people left me some wonderful comments here, at [livejournal.com profile] svmadelyn's lj and at Cupid's Drop Box. I luff you guys, so much! Thank you!

[livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] cordelianne are co-mods at [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan this year, and sign ups have begun! Go here for information and to join in on the Xander love!

Now for the fic. Yay! This is getting close to the end, i do believe. I'm so pleased everyone has stuck around for my slow progress! I seem to be writing more slowly these days.

*waves* Helloooooooooo out there! So sorry for the long delay. I have been sick, recovering, and then *sick again*, omg. I swear, it's been the lamest, longest season for being sick *ever*.

Plus, it's so damn cold lately - i weep over my heating bill.

Two fun things - my sister introduced my mother and i to 'Slings and Arrows' over the xmas holiday, and i've watched all three seasons and my *gods*, that is so, so *fun*! So fun, so funny, so silly and so touching. I laugh and *cried* and just...loved it. I definitely recommend it.

I'm also on the verge of having watched *all* of season one of 'Torchwood' and i *love* it. Love them all! Yes, i love Gwen, too. Heh. As soon as i see the last episode, i'll be watching the two new eps of season two which i'm a bit spoiled for. But...wheeeeee! A show where the slash is canon - what could be better?

Anyway - on with the fic! Thanks, everyone, for being so patient. Enjoy!

Wheeeeeeeeee! So late. I have *guilt* when i don't post, which is probably dumb, but...there it is! Seems like the holidays got me all discombobulated, and then i've been fighting this freaking *cough* since November... I'm now on *way* too many meds, but it's only for a week! And then maybe i'll be well! Yay!

Anyway - finally got this next chapter done and wanted to post *so much*. And my usual beta, the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens wasn't available. *whimper* So i had an 'emergency' beta done and now...i feel so dirty! DH - you know it's you, only you!!

Actually, kudos to [livejournal.com profile] black_samvara, who stepped up and did a wonderful quick beta for me. Thank you thank you! So much!

And, of course, there is always [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou. *smoooches*

Hello, flist, and a very merry holiday season! Merry Solstice, Happy Christmas, Joyful Chanukah, Blessed Ramadan, Peaceful Kwaanza... I love this time of year, and i hope, for all you, many blessings and much joy. I have no idea how much i'll be around to read my flist for the next few days, but i'll be back eventually, a couple pounds heavier from all the bread and cookies. Wheeeee!

Once again, all beta credit to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens, and my emotional prop and bestest IM chat buddy *evah*, [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou. *luffs you guys*

Otherwise, i have no news. My xmas shopping is basically done. I need to wrap some things. I need to mail some cards. That is all. Yay! I'm feeling quite content, really. :) I hope everybody on my flist is doing well and not having too much winter-weather craziness! We seem to have dodged the worst of it, so far.

*peers at last post* I guess my flist isn't one for PC games. :)
Also - a note about various...stuff, going on in the SPN fandom. I think [livejournal.com profile] dodger_winslow had a very good post about it here. I also agree with something someone said in this comment in [livejournal.com profile] ellipsisblack's lj.

I think respect - just general, for all living things respect - is a good idea, and something to actively try to have. I'm *not* pointing fingers and saying 'made of fail' at any particular thing, just...the general tone of a lot of fandom, lately.
'Nuff said, i think.
*and p.s. - i think it's perfectly cool if [livejournal.com profile] clex_monkie89 laughs at me*
*smooshes her*

On to the fic! I'm posting before letting [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens see it, so there may be a bobble or two. DH, please feel free to take me to task in comments! Or anybody else, for that matter. :) Snow, of course, has cheerleaded, like a very cute and kinky cheerleader.

Wow, it's chilly! I love it. I have my slippers on. :) Wednesday we went out to the country and cut down a cedar tree. Now we have a lovely, lovely tree in the living room that smells *so* good. We had so much fun, climbing rocks and wandering through the woods and finding *just* the right tree.

Then i had a moment of stupid and ate salad with our dinner, which i should not do. Raw veggies + me = bad. So i was sick all day Thursday, what fun. Sheesh.

This time around, i have a pimp. An amazing, really *different* SPN fic, seen from an outsider pov and just *not* what you're expecting. Go and read Strangers in Gilead. You will love.
Plus - [livejournal.com profile] witling is writing more Spander! Wheeee!
*looks at Azure*
*vows to write more very, very soon*

Hullo, hullo. Well, a long, lovely weekend. We had *snow*! It didn't stick, or anything. I'm still sick, which is lame. Chest hurts. Doctor tomorrow. Probably getting an xmas tree this week, yay! We always cut down a cedar, they smell *so good*.

Otherwise, wow - totally nothing going on in my life. Just...it's rainy and cold, i'm happy, i'm reading/writing/being fannish and doing house/life stuff and...that's all. Got some xmas gifties already, which is amazing for me. Yay!

Anyway - here's more fic! Part seven. And no, part eight isn't going to be the last part. I am so very bad at this. But - more fic! Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou for the cheerleading and reading, and [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for the beta-ing. You guys roxor.

Hello everyone, Elfie here!
Just watnted to say thanks to all the people who sent me postcards,letters, and cards. Thanks for the things inside the cards stickers and candy. I liked seeing postcards from new places, they were really cool, thanks again :D <3



So there you go! :)

I was sick over the weekend - fever and whatnot, so lame, and now i'm back to allergy...stuff, my voice all froggy and coughing a freakin' lung up. Annoying as all hell. *sigh* Anyway...more fic!

Hello, flist!

Monstrous continues to get mail, and she really is enjoying it. I'm sorry i don't have her on here saying her 'thank yous' in person.. Anyway - you guys are the best.

It got *cold* here overnight, which is awesome. Alas, it seems to have brought me and Cat both low, especially heinous considering yesterday was Cat's birthday. We had pizza and red velvet cake and a low-key get-together of family and friends. I'll put up a picture when i can.

On to the fic! Sorry this is a shorter entry...it's just how it worked out. Enjoy!

Firstly, [livejournal.com profile] fire_fic is over! So soon there will be fic for that. Everyone should hop over and check out the final total - it's *amazing*. And take a look at [livejournal.com profile] fire_fiction for all the wonderful stuff that's been written for it.

And now, for the fic. Just something i've had in my head since the end of season two. I promise it is *not* an angst-filled fic'o'dooooooooom, despite how it begins. Trusssst meeeeee.

[livejournal.com profile] darkhavens is my lovely beta, and [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou is my extra-perky cheerleader. *smooches* The title and poem snippet are from The Song of the Treadmill by Oliver Wendell Holmes.
