Things What Are Of The Good  
So I've been a bit blue lately, and so, inspired by the gorgeous and multi-talented rivers_bend, I'm making a post of happy good things in my life.

1. Birthday fic from the AMAZING hitlikehammers. Seriously, I feel incredibly lucky that she wrote me something for my b-day at all, but this is not just "something," this is a gorgeous, heartbreaking pike/mccoy fic that made me cry (and nearly everyone else who read it, judging by the comments). But I specifically requested a happy ending and since it's my birfday, she indulged me. Anyway, If you're here and you haven't read it yet, GO NOW. YES, RIGHT THIS MINUTE. Read the fic. Ignore all her ridic disclaimers about how it's not as good as it could have been or WHATEVS. Pfft. Then give her lots of smooshie love for writing this incredible fic. Then you can come back - this entry will still be here when you're done.

2. Meeting the aforementioned rivers_bend every week for tea, chatting, writing, hanging out together. Totally the highlight of my week.

3. Watching Nowhere Man on YouTube with wemblee (Co-starring Bruce Greenwood and Bruce Greenwood's Hair. And yes, the hair TOTES deserves its own billing). And chatting with wemblee. And doing brainstorming for creative projects with wemblee. Just, basically, wemblee in general. Because she's awesome.

4. My guys: my hubby and my bb boy. Could not imagine a better family.

5. My new idea for a novel. I so want to write a novel but inspiration has been sparse. I started a vampire thing a while ago but then Twilight came along and killed all desire I had to do anything with vampires at all. But now, new idea! So yay for that! Still very fledgling and underdeveloped, but hey, it's more than I've had in a while.

6. My whole entire f-list. You guys are all just amazing. *hugs you allllllllll*

...And now, it is time for me to go pick up item #4b. Back in a while, bbs!
How do I feel?: contentcontent

Bruce Greenwood: like a Garnier Fructus commercial! And you're making me blush. *blushes* <3333

Ahahaha he totally is a shampoo commercial. You know that's actually why Alyson (note speshul spelling) betrayed him - because she was jealous that his hair was so awesome. trufax.

Hello honey! Aww, it's good to hear from you. I saw your entry the other day and I've been thinking about you. *hugs*

Sorry you've been feeling blue, bb, but remember - you are much loved! *squishes*

So excited that you're writing a novel - I too have been slaving away (read not taking one bloody look at the wretched thing since I discovered writing slash was way more fun and got me more attention)- so you have my support on anything like that.

Which got me thinking...is there room for a comm, among us slash writers because we all feel 'safe' with each other so to speak, where we could maybe highlight/critique/post some of our original fic? I'd be up for setting something like that up with you if you fancy it - after Ship Wars, of course...I'd want the comm to be members only because people would have to be nice to each other, and, I doubt there would be much traffic...but if you like the idea, let me know. It may spur people on to produce more of their masterworks. Yes,indeed, I refer to my novel as The Masterwork - I'm being ironic, trust me!

btw, I haven't forgotten your birthday fic, bb - if you would prefer it not to be a Jones fic, let me know and I have something else - some art in mind, that I could do instead - although a Jones fic is fine too. I can't write *whispers* your OTP - unless it's a threesome, maybe - not yet. I may be able to later.

bloody hell, that was a ramble and a half... blame coffee. It's morning here!

Hello, bb! Thank you for the ramble and a half; I loved it. :) *smishes you*

I would love to see your Masterwork. A comm's a great idea; the only difficulty I can see is that publishers are (understandably) reluctant to pay money for anything that's available for free on teh intarwebz. So for those of us who have delusions of actually getting published one day, that might be an issue. But maybe if it was fairly limited membership, just a few of us who are interested and willing to put time into supporting/concritting each other? I'll prolly have an original fic filter on my lj as well at some point, and I'll put people on it to whom I feel comfortable showing my scary non-fanfic stuff. Y'know, once I have something actually worth showing.

As for my birthday fic, Jones is love! A Jones fic would be awesome. I actually prefer not threesomes - I'm such a monogamy girl it's kind of ridic. Like, the reason I love slash is the LURVE between two boys, and the utter dedication of each one to the other. For some reason, it just doesn't push my happy button if there's three. IDK why exactly. I have no problem with poly relationships at all, IRL or in fic - it's just not for me. YKWIM? Anyway, long digression is long, sorry. :D Short answer: Jones would be brilliant!

And that was TWO and a half rambles back atcha! ;)

ooo, I loves me rambles - I'll think about the comm idea some more after Ship Wars. I was thinking small, intimate and locked, definitely. We'll talk about this again in a few weeks - it may not be practical, but it might be something cool.

Okay, expect that Jones loving coming your way, but I've had to put it on hold cos I have a deadline approaching for operation80 and a lot of luvverly art I've committed to for prompt #6. I also want to give your fic my full attention - and you'll see why when you get it. Slow burn is good.

...a kind of sweet metaphysical blur...: grinhitlikehammers on April 15th, 2010 12:01 am (UTC)
Aww, doll; I'm sorry you've been blue lately *hugs*

But I'm super happy that I could contribute to something that made your day a little brighter :D
