Hello to all my f-list loves, and sorry I've been so absent again. *is ashamed*

Stuff that's being going on in my life:

1. Bought a house! (Escrow closes July 30th, pics to come soon).

2. Started my own practice (got three clients so far, w00t!)

3. Started seriously brainstorming my novel (thanks to all who have helped with that!)

4. Wrote a Harry Potter fic (Harry/Snape pre-slash with d/s - in the hands of my lovely beta now - it was actually a birthday fic for her. Yes, I made her beta her own birthday present, 'cause I'm awesome like that. :p)

5. Fell in love with Prince Nuada from Hellboy 2. (ZOMG HOT. And morally ambiguous, and graceful, and askdjf;oiawejflkjsdf. LOVE.)

6. ...I know there's tons of other stuff I'm forgetting.

What's up with all of you? I wanna know!

Oh, and by the way. If you've seen Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (or even if you haven't), you MUST go read ennui_blue_lite's fic. It's one of the best things I've ever read. Seriously.

So Good To Hear From One Of My Favorite Writers!
Hooray for your house and practice and novel and all-rounded awesomeness! That's just fantastic. So glad that things are going well for you. :)

I'm thinking about seeing Hellboy II this weekend. I loved the first one.

My only big news is that I just bought a Mac and I'm loving it. The days of being hunched over a tiny laptop are history. Plus, I must be the last person on the planet to get iTunes but now I have it and things are so much better. Yahhhhhh!

Re: So Good To Hear From One Of My Favorite Writers!
Eeee! Hi you! Aww, thank you for the compliment - you're one of my favorite writers too, so that works out well. ;)

Congrats on your Mac and getting iTunes! I am a PC convert (used to be exclusively Mac) and I don't think I'll ever go back, but I'll always have a lot of fondness for Mac. And iTunes is great.

SEE HELLBOY II. Seriously. See it. And swoon over Nuada. Tho even apart from Nuada the movie was great. :) If you do see, it, let me know what you thought!

*claps* OMG, I'm so happy to find that things are going well for you! Keeping my fingers crossed that things continue to be fantastic!

(Things aren't half bad for me, either ... work awesome, the show is doing amazingly in the ratings, they're sending me to the Demcrats' convention in Denver, and I love my girlfriend!)

In conclusion: YAY FOR US BOTH!

Aww, thanks so much, hon! Wow, I'm totally impressed about all that's going on with you - you ROCK.

Go us indeed!

5. Yeah...so much sympathy there. I'm still reeling...

Is it wrong that through the whole movie, I was rooting for the "bad guys"? Half because Nuada is HOTNESS and half because I agreed with his point of view. *ponders* Oh well, if being wrong looks like Nuada, I don't wanna be right!

*needs a Nuada icon*

Hope you enjoy the fic! Have you seen KKBB? It's awesome, and totally slashy.

YAY, HOUSE!!! :D

Sounds like good stuff, all around. I am looking forward to the Snarry. ;)

Not much to tell, here. Just enjoying the air-conditioning and relaxing these days.

Hey there! How's your own new place going? You all settled in?

Should be posting the HP fic soon. It's weird - it's not a fandom I've ever been particularly involved with - I've read the books and watched the movies, but just kinda as pop culture phenomena and not because I was fannishly obsessed with them. But suddenly the Harry/Snape dynamic kinda reached out and grabbed me, and I had to read and write it. It kinda reminds me of the Jeeves/Wooster dynamic a little bit - one is darker (morally I mean), smarter, more worldly, the other is youthful, brash, innocent and naive. That dynamic is my bulletproof kink, I guess.

Air conditioning is a very good thing. I keep my thermostat set to 72 because I'm a total wimp about the heat.

Heh, well, I guess that's *one* thing that makes me happy to be an American at the moment... (*waits for Gestapo to show up and shove me into prison at Guantanamo*)

Congrats on the Pink Floyd back catalog! That's awesome. I don't have any of their early albums, but I should really rectify that lack.

Helloooooo love!

OMG, you've rec-ed me! Yay! Thank you! MWAH!

You're new house, as you already know (because I told you) is awesome! I love it, and I can't wait to see it in person! I know you're going to make it comfy and homey and welcoming, because that's how your places always look.

So much congrats on the clients! I'm so excited for you! And your novel too! *Squeee!* I know it will be great. Know how I know? Because you're one of the most fantastic writers I've ever read. Seriously. Your book is going to be wonderful.

Your Harry/Snape fic, as you know (because I told you this too) is all ready wonderful. It must be posted.

Big mwah to you hon. I'll put "Hellboy" on my list of movies to go see (should I rent the first one beforehand? I haven't seen it). I'm happy to hear that things are going well. Love you.

-ennui.

Hi hon! Oh, I love that icon. So cute!

You're welcome for the rec - well-deserved!

I can't wait for you to come visit either and see my new place. Thank you for saying that my places are homey and welcoming! That's soooo sweet.

I loved brainstorming with you about novel stuff! Can't wait to do more. Will need input on how to make G/N the most fucked-up couple EVER. ;)

*blush* thank you for the kind words about my writing, and my Harry/Snape fic. You are too good to me.

Definitely see Hellboy. I think Prince Nuada has replaced Tony Stark as my current movie boyfriend. ;) He's just so. frickin. hot. The way he moves, OMG. The fight scenes in that movie are incredible. The visual style is really cool too.

Big MWAH back to you. Love you like ice cream!

Hay you! Great to see you around LJ again! Also, a huge hooray on all the wonderful new things! Also, best of luck on the novel. It can be laborious and frustrating, yet, also, it'll be even more fun and rewarding.

Not a lot is new with me. I've been very unproductive on the creativity front, but I started a reading-list of important books, which I'm very slowly moving through. It's fun, but definitely not helping me move forward with my fic.
Sky: [stephen] kingdom grin animatedskyblue_reverie on July 13th, 2008 04:29 pm (UTC)
Hay you too! Yeah, the novel thing is kinda overwhelming. I'm not sure how I'll ever actually get it started, much less get it done. But still, I'm excited to try.

Oooh, what books have you been reading? I've been reading pretty much only fic. I feel like I should be reading important books, but with all that's going on in my life, a fic here and there is about all I can handle.

heh, yep, I've been totally insanely busy. And the coming months will be equally crazy, I'm sure. Still, as it's mostly good stuff I'm not complaining... well, okay, yes I am, but I'm not complaining too much. ;)

Hope you enjoy the KKBB fic!

It's good to see you too, m'dear! What have you been up to?
