In which sky gives in to the meme  
Hello, y'all. Sorry I've been sort of quiet recently. I've been having a bit of a rough time lately, creativity totally dried up, work stress, general depression, angstcakes, and WOE.

I should be in bed, and I'll be going there shortly, but first, I made a little test, about me! Please, take it, so I don't feel totally lame. Even if I am. :P

Luff you guys, and would SO appreciate any well-wishes, good vibes, happy thoughts, or anything else you'd care to send my way. And if you see that wayward Jeeves-muse of mine, send him back to me, won't you?

Create your own Friend Test here

ETA: In case anyone cares, behind the LJ-cut are the correct answers to the quiz. No cheating, now! Don't look 'til after you've taken the test. :P

1. D - That one was easy, wasn't it? :D

2. A - A bit trickier. I love them both, but Stephen does have a definite edge over Hugh.

3. C - I'm surprised by how many people said I don't have a wanking kink. I love wanking! (Er, I didn't mean that the way it sounded.) I also have a huge smoking fetish, hence my several icons featuring Stephen and Hugh, in various roles and incarnations, smoking, and my love for jadedgothchild's Fry/Laurie smoking!porn. I've also got a spanking kink, as is pretty clear from my fic. But I have no biting kink. It's not a squick or anything, it just doesn't particularly turn me on.

4. B - This is a tricky one, because even I would be hard-pressed to choose. Lots of people said "Bertie", and that is really tempting, but it's Jools by a very slight margin. Bertie is love, but Jools is TEH HAWT.

5. C - I'm agnostic. "I don't know, and you don't either" pretty much sums it up.

6. A - Buffy. First, last, and always - my love for Buffy (and Joss) knows no bounds. I've just made a new convert (or as someone put it, "sired") - my darling ennui_blue_lite.

7. D - My ruby tiara of denial (tm ennui_blue_lite) enables me to live in my lovely fantasy world where Stephen and Hugh are happily shagging every night and holding hands strolling through sunlit meadows by day.

8. C - I think I'm the most obnoxious strongest OTP person I've ever met. It actually causes me pain to read fics that break my OTP, and I simply won't do it. I can't bear to think of anyone else with my beloved Stephen or Hugh, or with Jeeves or Bertie, other than each other. Yes, I've been told I'm very strange. Repeatedly. My friends try desperately to consider it a charming quirk. They sometimes succeed.

9. D - I have nothing whatsoever against RPS, but unless it's Fry/Laurie, I'm just not interested. Fry & Laurie are totally MFEO and if you try to say otherwise, I will beat you to death with my ruby tiara. :p

10. B - Haha, I think everyone who's taken the quiz so far said A, bestiality. I guess I'm very, very wrong, and should be more squicked by bestiality. It doesn't turn me on or anything, but I actually consider it more giggle-worthy than squicky. My biggest squick is torture. I don't mean consensual bdsm, obviously, I mean like Spanish Inquisition (nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!) stuff. I can't read or watch torture scenes; I had to leave the room at the end of Braveheart.

11. B - This is a tricky one again, because they're all SO eminently shaggable, but I must admit that I do have a preference for Boffle/J&W-era Stephen. Hottest thing EVAR.

12. C - I heart my default icon to itty bitty pieces. It was made for me by the fantabulous rivers_bend. Bonus points to anyone who knows who the icon in answer D belongs to. :D

13. D - I live in lovely California, but I'm flattered by the couple of you who said England! I only wish.

14. A - I've got one brother, and some of you may recollect that I slash him with his roommate/comedy writing partner. Yes, there are certain similarities with another comedy duo that I adore.

15. D (But thank you to everyone who said B! MWAH.)

How do I feel?: blahblah

Wow, I totally suck. However. I send you good thoughts, and also brownies with peppermint icing. And a smoking Stephen watching Hugh sleep. Good luck!
Sky: [stephen] hair ruffle animatedskyblue_reverie on February 24th, 2007 05:53 pm (UTC)
Aww, you don't suck! I'll admit that some of them were deliberately tricky, and some of them are *really* tough to choose between, even to me. But you do know about the smoking, so go you.

Thank you for the brownies and *especially* for the mental image. Yum on both counts. *hugs*

You didn't embarrass yourself at all! I was very impressed. You got some of the tricky ones, too.

Wow, I need to get to know you better! And/or learn more of your pr0n-kinks? *g*

I really hope you feel better darlin'. I know I don't know you super-well and haven't even known you that long, but from just hanging out with you a bit on The Intart00bs, I think you're a sweet, sharply intelligent, very, very caring and very *good* person and I'm sorry to see you suffer in any way. If you ever need someone to vent to, or to talk things out with, or just a distraction, online (or on the phone, if that's helpful) I'd be happy to listen/do that for you. Just drop me a line.

If that seems too, I dunno, forward, I apologize; I just want you to know people care, I care, and I hope you feel better. Depression blows.
Sky: [stephen] bw thoughtfulskyblue_reverie on February 24th, 2007 06:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much, my dear. You aren't too forward, and your offer is much appreciated, really. I may take you up on that at some point. And the kind words made me feel all warm and fuzzy. *huge hugs*

Depression does blow, and I know you know that all too well. So consider the offer returned - same thing, if you ever need someone to talk to, I'm here as well.

*hug* *hug* *hug*

I've been down with the wines and spirits myself lately, so I understand how you feel. Let me know if you want to talk, phone, IM, whatever...we can share out angst and cry and make each other feel all better. Or at least stick the worries away and find a happy denial land for ourselves somewhere and pretend the only thing we have to worry about is the design of the next icon we wanna make. Or something. (God, I'm getting lame here!)

Maybe a nice hot shower would help?

And Bertie is thinking hard about what he can do to help. Or else he's thinking about the upcoming sex session with Jeeves. Whichever makes you feel better. ;)

*hugs back!* Oh, hon, I'm so sorry you've been down too. We will definitely have to commiserate and then cheer each other up with Hugh and Stephen-ness. Like the pics, for which I thank you very much. Hee, Bertie with his tongue poking out is too cute. And of course, shower!Stephen. Mmmm.

You're not lame at all, you are teh awesome. And your little T/C drabbles are definitely bringing a spot of brightness to my days, so thank you for that as well.

Even though I am such a new fan to J/W, it pains me to hear angst and sadness from your dulcet voice fingers, when I always imagine you to be as bracing as hot cup of earl grey tea or as smooth as a vodka martini.

Think of what Bertie would do if Jeeves were feeling low...
Sky: [j&w] first tasteskyblue_reverie on February 24th, 2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank you so much, m'dear. You're so sweet! Aww, the earl grey and martini comparisons are extremely flattering. *blush*

Oooh, that is a nice thought indeed. What would Bertie do for Jeeves? I'll let that float around in my brain and maybe I can go to the happy place. Thank you. :)

Phooey. I should know more about you. *pout*

I'm really sorry that you're feeling down. *sends you lots of love and warm thoughts* Feel better, cupcake buddy. And if I happen to see your runaway muse, I'll be sure to send him over with a spanking paddle. What you do with that is 100% up to you. *g*
Sky: [stephen] smoking 3skyblue_reverie on February 24th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
Aww, don't worry. Looking back at the quiz, some of those questions were really tricky and unfair! I mean, I'd be hard pressed to choose between some of those options myself. Still, it was fun to write it. :)

Thanks for the love and warm thoughts, and right back atcha, m'dear. I really hope things get better soon.

Hee, definitely send him back with a spanking paddle! I'm sure I can find some sort of use for that. ;)

Thanks again for the kind words and thoughts, hon.

Sending you hugs and love, sweetheart. I know things are tough, but you've got a great head on your shoulders, and you *will* come to the right conclusions and work things out just fine.

Thanks, hon. I appreciate the vote of confidence. Hope things look up for you too. Spring cannot come soon enough, says I. It won't make everything magically better, but it'll help a bit, I think.

numero dos
My biggest squick is torture.

See, I picked beastiality because I know you like H/C, and I include torture under my... H/C rubric? :D But there are definitely different kinds of H/C (torture-free kinds!), so...
Sky: [custom] earthbound misfitskyblue_reverie on February 25th, 2007 05:35 pm (UTC)
Re: numero dos
Oh, yes, I love h/c. I even like post-torture h/c, as long as I don't have to actually read the torture scene itself. If it's just implied, that's the best, or if it's actually in there I have to kind of skim or skip over the torture bits, and get right to the comfort-y bits. And there's a fine line there, as well - I mean, the scene in Buffy where Angel is shirtless and bound and getting little rivulets of holy water poured on him by Drusilla? I'm totally fine with that. But when it gets much stronger than that, I have to close my eyes and cover my ears, or head for the exit.

Strangely, my other big squick is embarrassment. I mean, I hate sitcom type things where the humor is based on one person making a fool of themselves, and I hate reality TV shows or things like Borat where people are being humiliated on film, whether or not they know it, and whether or not they themselves signed up for the humiliation. It makes me cringe and squirm and again, I usually have to leave the room. However, mild embarrassment in a sexual context, like in my tailor!fic, I find really hot. So I dunno, I'm weird.

Hello -- I've been reading your Jooster and loving it ... sorry to see in your post that you're feeling low. Hope that this day finds you better and that your muse has returned!

Re: Hello and thank you for your writing
Aw, thank you so much for your very kind words. I'm so glad you're enjoying the fic. I am doing all right, hanging in there. Hopefully the depression will lift soon and the muse will return. It's amazing what a lifesaver fandom can be at a time like this.

*hugs fandom*

*hugs you too*

At last I couldn't do it at all. Because I couldn't log in. But, none the less this was cool. I hope you are feeling alright now and keep your head up.

That is my favorite era for Stephen to. In my world they belong together.

Thanks so much, hon. I'm trying to keep my head up anyway. Sorry you couldn't do the quiz, but I'm glad you enjoyed reading the answers anyway. :) And yes, they totally belong together.
