Yayyyyy! It's Fridayyyy!  
Hello my darlings! Just a short little post to check in and tell you all that I'm doing well, in case any of you all wanted to know. ;)

My yuletide fic is nearly done, and will be going off to my lovely beta this weekend. Then I've got to finish my fluffy smutty Christmas J/W story for my darling ennui_blue_lite, which should be posted in the next week or two, and which will be tooth-rottingly sweet. :D I've got tons of bunnies hopping for more J/W stories, but they will just have to wait until I'm finished with my current projects. Down, bunnies, down!

I had a fabulous time visiting with rivers_bend the other weekend. She is gorgeous and sweet and fun, and I am extremely proud that I have given her another fannish addiction - Veronica Mars. Go me! I hope to get at least one more visit in with her before she heads back to England - we're thinking maybe karaoke with karaokegal, which would be tremendously fun but would in no way involve me singing. :)

Finally, a little note to my yuletide santa: Thank you thank you thank you in advance! As we hit the home stretch of yuletide, just know that I'm thinking about you and sending you lots of encouragement and good thoughts for your fic. I am sure that I will love it. You rock, whoever you are! Mwah.

Hope all my f-list buddies (and any lurkers who happen to stumble in) are doing well, and I would love for you to drop me a note. Happy weekend, everyone!

Where am I?: work
How do I feel?: hyperhighly caffeinated

Hello love!

I'm glad that you're doing well, and I'm very SQUEEEEEEEEE about seeing the Christmas fic. Hurray for fluffy, tooth-rottingly sweet J&W fic. Hurray I say! (feeds the bunnies). I've been working on my Yuletide fic as well, and I'll be sure to send you an updated draft tonight. I haven't gotten *all* that far, but I'm just happy to be working again.

karaoke? Hon, I'm so sorry. :) But it's lovely that you and RB had such fun.

Can't wait to talk with you later.

Oh, BTW - I seem to have the ability to upload more userpics! You wouldn't know anything about that, would you..? ;)

(seriously babe, I have no idea what you did, but thank you!)

Hello, love! Eeeeee, I'm very excited about seeing your fic as well! I think you've seen almost all of my yuletide story already, but I'll send you the finished (unbetaed) version as soon as I have it done. Thank you so much for all of your help and encouragement with it. And I can't wait to talk to you tonight. :)

As for the mystery of the extra userpics, Happy Early Chrismukkah, my darling! MWAH and massive hugs. Did they not send you some kind of notification or something? I thought they'd let me write you a little message or something, but no dice. Anyway, I upgraded you to a paid account which comes with the 100 extra userpic add-on. Go nuts!

Oh my goodness, hon! I don't know what to say! This was so sweet of you to do this for me - seriously, babe, I'm speechless! Thank you! *massive hug and kisses back!!!* This is too much!

I'm still working on the fic (I'm at the matter of the gift, and I have an idea that I'd like to discuss with you), but I'm very thrilled to see your Yuletide fic completed. It's a wonderful, wonderful story.

Seriously, thank you so *SO* much, love!

Wooo! Congratulations on being in the home stretch! And w00t for successfully pimpimg VMars. VMars always needs more ratings love.

Yay, now I can finally reply to your comments as well.
Sky: [veronica mars] v/l epicskyblue_reverie on December 9th, 2006 06:01 pm (UTC)
Yes, VMars needs more ratings AND love! :D

Thanks for the congrats. Massive congrats to you too on finishing! Hee, have fun with the comments. I think our discussions will quickly outstrip the length of the stories themselves. ;) When's the next installment?

*g* That's totally fine by me. That's one of the things I miss from the more email-centric, mid-'90s version of fandom -- you don't usually get these long discussions. I miss them.

When's the next installment?

Oh. Oh, that. Soon, I guess. There actually isn't that much material left to post, as the story's unfinished. Next up, I think, is a flashback and then, deleted scenes. And then, onto the next thing. *tries to find something remotely as presentable as this story*

Hello, my darling! :) It's good to see a post-y from you, and I'm so glad to hear that things are well.

You know I'm looking forward to reading your upcoming stories. Any idea of a publication date yet? *tries to be patient*

Do you think Stephen will actually show up on Ferguson this time around? Gah, I hope so! This happened with Hugh on the Jay Leno show in late Aug/early Sept. He was scheduled to be on but just didn't for some reason; a few weeks later he was there. Still, I'm keeping fingers, toes, and anything else cross-able crossed!

RL reared its ugly head this past week, and I had less time onlnie than I'd have preferred (but probably still more than was good for me!). I've been working on some new icons and a story or two. *coughcuffscough* My brain lately has been subdivided between J/W and House, so now I have plot bunnies of both varieties hopping about in my head. Argh! A couple of them are particularly good plotlines, I think; I just have to get around to writing them!

I'll close here; my intent is to reply to your email by end of the weekend. Ta, dear! *mwah*

Hello, m'dear! It's good to hear from you too.

Let's see - publication dates. For the yuletide fic, the archive goes live on Christmas, and then authors are revealed on New Year's Day. After that, I believe I can re-post to my LJ, so I'll be doing that.

On the Christmas fic, I'm not totally sure when it'll be posted, except that it'll definitely be up before Christmas. Hopefully I'll post it around the same time as I upload my yuletide fic - I'm going home for the holidays on the 20th, so I'd like to get it up before then.

I cannot wait to see what you come up with for the cuffs, and any other fics that you write up! I noticed your new default icon, and I love it.

Can't wait for the email, but as always no pressure. Talk to you soon! Mwah.

Off-topic, LJ-as-message-board, delete/screen if you like:

When are you usually on AIM? I'm back on the East Coast, so I'm three hours later than you, so I just figured I'd ask you for the ballpark time; otherwise, no more AIM with sky and that would be sad!
Sky: [stephen] winkskyblue_reverie on December 12th, 2006 02:26 am (UTC)
Hee, that would be sad! I'm around most evenings, say 6:30ish to 10ish my time, and sometimes on the weekends. If you don't see me around and want to chat, drop me an email (addy in userprofile) - often I'm on my computer, just not on chat, and then I can pop on.

Are you having a good time back east with your family?
wemblee: my fandom has been co-opted by a corporawemblee on December 12th, 2006 07:54 am (UTC)
Cool. And yes, I'm having a pretty relaxing time so far. :)

Your Yuletide's finished, or pretty close to it? Lucky duck. I think maybe I'm a closet masochist and secretly enjoy last minute pressure. ;D

I haven't left a note for my Santa. It's probably too late and I don't know what I'd say aside from 'heh. good luck, buddy'... if they even actually visit their recipient's LJ in the first place.

I can't wait to read your smutty Christmas J/W fic.
Sky: [stephen] forearmsskyblue_reverie on December 12th, 2006 02:32 am (UTC)
Oh dear god your icon! I'm not sure whether to laugh or be horrified. Perhaps some of each. ;)

Yes, I sent yuletide off to beta on Saturday! Just waiting to hear back. :D Hee, lotsa people get off on that last-minute deadline pressure, but I can't stand it.

Oh, it's never too late for a santa note! Even "good luck" would be much appreciated, I'm sure! And I bet most of us stalk our recipient's LJ - didn't you stalk yours? I did (and do) mine! :D

Aww, thanks for saying you can't wait for the smutty Christmas fic. :) It's coming along. Have you got anything in the works besides your yuletide?
Famous Mortimer: Sheep Sexnotatracer on December 12th, 2006 02:49 am (UTC)
hehehehe. ;D

I guess it would be nice to say 'good luck'... even if they never see it. Oh, yes, I partook in some stalking to try to get some ideas flowing. I think I'm nervous about writing a gift for someone. I mean, I know what amuses me and an idea of what amuses other people, but still. eep.

Well, yes and no. I have ideas for other things and a great desire to work on the 5 Things prompts, but I don't want to get too distracted from the task at hand. I keep having the problem lately of thinking of ideas for fics aside from the one I'm working on for yuletide. I think laziness, procrastination, and being easily distracted are my main obstacles. Right now I'm sitting here thinking about taking a nap.
Sky: [stephen] you beast animatedskyblue_reverie on December 12th, 2006 04:18 am (UTC)
Ack, my eyes! My eyes! ;)

And I see you posted a little good luck message - that was very sweet. I betcha they will see it and be made very happy. :) I know what you mean about being nervous writing a gift. Still, I'm sure that whoever your recipient is will love your fic - how could they not? You're a gorgeous writer.

Oh, I totally relate to the getting-distracted thing - somehow the bunnies always seem to start breeding just when I'm settling in to write one particular fic. Or, as you say, I start thinking nap, or LJ, or watching Boffle, or... :D
karaokegal: boxsetkaraokegal on December 11th, 2006 08:28 pm (UTC)
I'm glad I finally got to meet you at the den of iniquity Mint. Hope you a good time. I did see your lips moving while I sang "You Can't Always Get What You Want" so that counts as singing.
Sky: [stephen] thank you animatedskyblue_reverie on December 12th, 2006 02:38 am (UTC)
It was great meeting you! I had a wonderful time, and I shamefully neglected to thank you for both the drink and the invite. So, many thanks, m'dear!

Heh, yes, I definitely was singing along from the table. That's about my speed - it was so loud in there I don't think anyone could possibly have heard me (I couldn't even hear myself), which trust me, was a good thing for all concerned. ;) Thanks for singing us the Housey song - it was fabulous.
