Egg Day Stuff cut 'cause it's rambly... )

ANYway...here is the fic! Yis, the final chapter plus an epilogue, which i hope all fits here. Another fun ride with my boys - amazing where these fics take me, as i usually have only the vaguest idea of plot and ending scenes when i start writing. Thank you, everyone, for the lovely fb and encouragement!

And thank you, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for the chit-chat and fixes and discussions that always spur me on. And of course 'thank you!' to [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for the brit-beta. As always, ladies, i luffs ya!

But first - a pimp!

[livejournal.com profile] pretties_4u did a very cool post about how, exactly, people find him and me online. He lists some of the top search strings and oh, my. People? Are weird. My favorite? cashmere sweater erection. Yes. :)

Also - the Monstrous Bebe turned nine! Nine!!OMG!!1 We had a family party on the day, with cake and her choice of dinner *Micky D's* and time at the park. Yesterday was the 'party with friends' and they had hot dogs, cup cakes, soda-out-the-nose, confettie poppers and rocket balloons and a pinata. All was good.


Also, I posted another Supernatural ficlet over at [livejournal.com profile] kaz2y5. Another Sam pov, which i was very happy with. Sudden Downpour.

And now, 'Hands'! Of course, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse gave me much wonderful help and [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens gave me some Brit-beta help... This chapter in particular gave me trouble. We'll see how i feel about it later - i'm on the fence! Heh. Previous parts here.

*waves to flist*

Suddenly, it's Spring! Windy, chilly, crazy storms with *hail* - i love it. Birds going mad in the underbrush, dogwood and redbud starting to bloom, hyacinth and forsythia... Lovely stuff. If only it'd *stay* like this - perpetually about sixty-five degrees and colder at night...
*longs for the beach*

Anyway... I know this was linked around last week or so, but i felt like i needed to spread it just that much further. Oglala Sioux President fighting the abortion ban... I've written to the site and checked back but haven't seen anything further - if anyone has read or heard any sort of update, maybe post in comments? This has been *very* underreported in the main-stream media, which is disappointing but not suprising.

Also, if you wanna call a senator? Call Bill Napoli.

I couldn't resist posting this picture. Heh. Me, the Monstrous Bebe - jacuzzi!! Yes, perfectly safe, she's my bebe!

Jacuzzi! )

Now, to fic! Much beta-love for [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for their work and help. Anything wrong? All on me! Heh.

Hullo, hullo!
Well, March has been odd. First lamb-like, then lion-like, now sort of...in between. Plus tornado sirens and hail and torrential rain! Wheee! I do *like* weather.

The response over at [livejournal.com profile] douse_house has been awesome - thank you guys so much! *bounce*

I've also posted another Supernatural ficlet in [livejournal.com profile] kaz2y5. The challenge word was 'kink'... I think you'll probably be surprised. :) Demon. The rest are in my memories.

It's Spring Break here, so the Monstrous is playing lots of Toon Town and just went on a veritable sticker-buying *orgy* from the machines outside the horrible K-Mart. Fifty cents for a sticker! Sheesh. Ah well, they're *her* quarters.

We watched the HBO show 'Deadwood' - seasons one and two. OMG! Loved it. *All* of it. Season three appartenly doesn't start until July? Who knows when we'll get to watch but man - can't wait! Also watching 'Carnivale' - also HBO. It's extremely odd and very frustrating. I know it was cancelled after season two - i hope they managed to resolve the arcs even a *little*. All in all, enjoyable stuff! *hugs Calamity Jane*

On a slightly more personal note, in the past few months i've gotten several requests to beta fic. It's frankly quite boggling. I *don't* beta. I'm not much good at it and i've never put my name on any beta lists or anything. This isn't directed *at* anyone, but i just want to make it clear - i'm not a beta! *Unless your name is [livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose and that's 'cause she's my roxy and the rules don't apply to her.*

On to the fic! Of course, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens gave it a good going over. *snogs them* The previous parts are here.

Yes! More!

It's gotten *cold* again here. My damn electric bill is through the roof and frankly, i'm sick of it. I suspect my water heater needs replaced. Gah. On a lighter note, perhaps we'll get snow? Since it's predicted just north of us.
On a bummer note - No [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou this week! Woe! Sob! *clings*.
Another time, bay-bee.

A pimp!
Then there's a lovely thing called Temps Perdu by [livejournal.com profile] elgrey. In the author's own words:AU post ANGELS5. GEN. AU after The Girl in Question. In this version of events, the Senior Partners unleashed the apocalypse before Angel had a chance to assassinate the Order of the Black Thorn. To prevent the destruction of LA, Wesley threw himself into a demon dimension and Angel went after him. After weeks of anxiety and spellcasting, the remnants of Angel Investigations and the visiting Scoobies attempt to bring them back. Characters: Angel, Wesley, Gunn, Lorne, Giles, Buffy, Willow, Xander, Illyria, Spike, Connor.

It's really just a delightful story. We get to see most all of the Buffy/Angel cast, with no bashing and no character assasination, just them working on a solution to a problem. Lots of snark, banter, laughter, and some woobie moments, too. I really enjoyed this - give it a try!

And i am reading and enjoying just a ton of excellent Supernatural fics over at [livejournal.com profile] spnnewsletter. The volume of work is amazing!! And some real gems in there. Go! Love! Then write crossovers! Those boys need to meet Spike and Xander, oh yes they do! And Angel, and Giles, and Buffy and...
You get the picture. :)
*is suffering from 'no good xovers with my boys *anywhere* syndrome*

And some other stuff. Like, for instance, i despise my state right now. Well, okay, maybe not my state but the jerks who are in office. They want to make an official state religion!!! Assholes.

Luckily there are some xians out there who are as horrified as the rest of us.

And all that blather about how it's 'not a law, just an opinion poll'... I don't want lawmakers and whatnot running my state who think it's a good idea to even *contemplate* a 'state religion'! Gah!
*sporks them all*

Let's see, what else? Ah, yis. [livejournal.com profile] witling. She has once again written something that makes me go all happy and shivery and 'wish i could write like *that*'... Go read Land of the Lost and see if you don't agree.

I've just posted another Supernatural ficlet over in the challenge comm, [livejournal.com profile] kaz2y5. Have a look. Those boys just keep getting more interesting. :) Blood.

I'm also hating TV a lot right now, but mostly because the networks just keep screwing around with air times and days and all that. Makes me wanna just download off the 'net and buy the DVD's when they come out and *never turn the tv on again*!! Sheesh.

And now that i've babbled on and on, here's the fic! [livejournal.com profile] reremouse helped whip it into shape, and [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens of course made sure of all things Brit. Of course, any little error you see...tell me! I like things to be right. Or as close as possible.

ETA: Someone nominated me over at The Spander Awards. Thank you so much, whomever was a busy bee and did that! Outstanding Author, Best Overall Spander and Best Darkfic. Except the Darkfic nomination is incorrect and i can't seem to get them to fix it. *Name of the fic is mangled and the link is wrong*. Ah well. Thank you thank you!

ETA2: Finally, it's been fixed! :)

Hullo, hullo.
I know, most of your are probably watching the Oscars. I can't stand all the smarm, so i generally don't. Plus - why can't the speeches be like the ones back in the thirties and forties? When someone won, they came up to get their statue and they said 'this is such an honor, thank you so much'. And *that was it*. All. They were done.

Instead now there's this endless list of people they're sucking up to and possibly some disconnected babble and sometimes inappropriate political commentary and...
Bah, Humbug.

[livejournal.com profile] realtsunamigirl tagged me for this meme. Peek under here for the five most effective things to bribe me with!
Own me! )

I might have said i'd pimp something here...but damned if i can remember what or who or....Gah! Well, if i said it to you, remind me! Really. It's like damn Swiss Cheese up here.

As always, big hugs and smooches to [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for all their spiffy help! You guys are the cat's meow!
*has moment of utter terror that that apostrophe is wrong*
And DH, love - Many Happy Returns of the Day! I hope it was just lovely!

Anyway. Fic!

Hallo, flist!


Nope, i got nothin'. Nothin' at all.
No recs, no news, no...anything. My brain, it is off.

[livejournal.com profile] reremouse can attest to this. Also? She roxors. As does [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for all their timely pokes and squees and 'stuff'.

Anybody on my flist want cats? Li'l Brudder, Li'l Sista, Spot and Littlest need homes. I'd like to say Patches does, too, but we might be keeping him. Like we need a fourth cat. Anyway...yeah. Just under a year old, just over two years old, and about three years old, respectively. All outside, all have come inside, the first two for extended stays. *All* friendly and loving and sweet and wonderful and all fixed except for Li'l Brudda, who'll be fixed soon.

Now - the fic!

Yup, posting. Again. Just - twitchy! Wanna post!

But first - a self-pimp! I have another Supernatural ficlet up at [livejournal.com profile] kaz2y5. Yis, Supernatural is sucking me down, OMGWTF!!!11!
But i love it. And no, *not* gonna abandon my best boys to these *new* ones. Just make 'em scooch over a bit so there's room.

Anyway, pop over and read Liturgy if you're so inclined.

As for 'Hands' - wheeeeee! It's so fun. To write. And re-read. *la la*
Never mind me. Thanks, of coz, to [livejournal.com profile] reremouse for reading and poking and helping, and to [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for making sure my UK flist-members aren't rolling their eyes and muttering 'omfGOD she's a moron!'.

On with the show!
Oh! Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] reremouse, she recently updated her totally hilarious, sexy and boys-will-be-boys-even-when-they're-girls gender!switch fic Parts. Yes!! All the...uh...parts are right here.

Oh yeah - Xander had no illusions which one of them was the plain Jane in this buddy movie and clearly he needed to spend a few hours curled up in a multiplex while things exploded on screen because there was no way no way Xander was prepared to be insecure in his femininity.

How can anybody resist stuff like *that*? Go, now, read!!

Yup, more Amnesia!Xander! fic! I couldn't wait. I'm having so much fun writing this fic that i just *had* to post more, so...

Yeah, okay, maybe it's unseemly to be that excited over *my own posting* but hey! It's my journal and i'll bounce if i want to.

And today is the Superbowl, right? And it's...uh....*runs to check* Steelers and Seahawks? Is that right? I won't watch - gods help me, no - but i have to put in a 'ra ra!' for the Seahawks 'cause i used to live up there. Plus, cool blue and green shirts! I think. Are they still? They used to have that neat Northwest American Indian style seahawk on the helmets...


Anyway, you all who're watching, have fun!!

Now the fic. And yes! S/X! Heee. Previous part is here.
And, of course, all impetuous to write is because of [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and her browbeating enthusiasm.

Yes, I'm being...bad. Scaling Heaven isn't done and neither is *this* but i just - wanted to post! And [livejournal.com profile] reremouse enabled encouraged me, so...

I gave in.

I also wanted to do that '10 Things' meme about how you know it's a [livejournal.com profile] tabaqui fic, but I could only come up with two! Or maybe one. Hrmmmm. Ms.Mouse had a few more, so i'll do that first... Chime in, if you like!

Meme! )

And now, the fic. [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] _beetle_ bullied enabled encouraged me ruthlessly until i gave in, so it's for them, of course! And the look-see/once-over/critique is always Ms. Mouse's duty. [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens gave me some Brit-beta, and the title is from a line from 'Titus Andronicus'.

As If We Should Forget We Have No Hands
