Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] minuial_nuwing



*sneaks in* I know I'm horribly late, but maybe it's a nice way of extending the birthday out. *G*

I do have a little ficlet in progress which hopefully will be posted soon.

Video



The American film industry does have a lot to answer for, I think, in perpetuating stereotypes.

AinA story rec

Completely and utterly pimping my AinA gift story because it is that awesome. I received The Season for Arson by Lanyon and it is brilliant!

Summary: AU: Erestor works in the admin department of Firehouse 103 in Rivendell and Glorfindel is a new volunteer. A story of fire and home.

I adore it, it's a wonderful take on Erestor/Glorfindel, the characters have a real depth to them, plus it even features cheeky twins.

Can't recommend it enough - don't wait, go read it!

Totally succumbed to peer pressure. *G*

I will wonder what I got myself into only after I finish the not yet started Aina. *hangs head*

meme - I'm a lemming

So, a 'what kind of liberal are you' meme is floating around on LJ, and I took it fully prepared to not agree with the results. But, as it goes, I am happy with them so I thought I'd go ahead and post it.

Quiz: What Kind of Liberal Are You?

My Liberal Identity

You are a Peace Patroller, also known as an anti-war liberal or neo-hippie. You believe in putting an end to American imperial conquest, stopping wars that have already been lost, and supporting our troops by bringing them home.

Take the quiz at
About.com Political Humor



Yep, that's me - hippie chick.

writing meme

So...I'm in a rut and need some creative inspiration. I saved this meme to do after MSV2012 was over (goes to show how long ago that was!) and I'm dusting it off and posting it here. Hopefully it will inspire something!

I have a lot of bunnies sitting in a folder.

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story..

February, where did you go?

Well, I finally have unearthed my way out of the mountain of things left undone enough to update. February's gone so fast I really didn't have time enough to breathe. Through a bad combination of events, I didn't start writing my MSV2012 fic until February, I had to write that, finish the swap and also do my regular beta work.

Shortly after the swap, I got a stomach bug - my stomach STILL isn't the same after that. Combine it with work deadlines, plus the [livejournal.com profile] oeam_bigbang challenge, for which I was betaing and doing art for [livejournal.com profile] keiliss's fic literally last minute. Never let it be said life is not an adventure. (You should totally watch her lj - she's posting tonight and it is a great, entertaining, clever, funny and creepy story!)

I don't have any looming deadlines at the moment, so I've been able to read almost all of the MSV 2012 stories. I am working through reviewing them all, and I highly recommend people go over, read and leave feedback. There are some really great stories on there. I do have some personal recommendations: All Rivers by [livejournal.com profile] esteliel, A Little Heat by [livejournal.com profile] minuial_nuwing, and The Night the Sea Came In by [livejournal.com profile] keiliss.

Esteliel's a gorgeous Elladan/Haldir, and if you have any fondness for the pairing, you must read it. Min's fic is stunning, Erestor/Gildor in her hands is quite good and well worth a read. And I'll read any story with Kei's Gil, but it so happens this is a brilliant fic in a time and its events I've not read much about and I think it was written wonderfully.

On a completely unrelated note, I'm currently in a love/hate relationship with my hair. I looked at a picture of me six years ago and was startled to realize I had not changed my hair in over 8 years (I have long curly hair). This made me want to run out and get a hair cut, but I have had perfect hair days since and it is doing its utmost to remind me how much I love it. It's incredibly irritating!

Very belatedly, I'd like to thank everyone who left a kind word for me on this year's VDSA, run by the ever lovely [livejournal.com profile] kenazfiction. It was absolutely lovely to find the messages. I also received V-Gifts from [livejournal.com profile] sbyte and [livejournal.com profile] phyncke. Thank you guys so much!

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] keiliss

birthday pic for Kei )

It's hard to find the right words... Happy birthday, sweetie. I hope all your bad luck has been used up at the start of the year and only really good things are ahead. I'm so very happy we met ages ago on the groups, you're a very wonderful friend to me and I only wish the best for you in this coming year. Thank you for friendship, Them, and being the best beta in the world. Also hope that you enjoy the eye-candy. I'm quite fond of him myself. *G*

Super Bowl

It's been a really, really rough week, and a bad January. But, on the bright side, I didn't have to deal with the Patriots coming to my home state and winning. That would have been too much.

Bye-bye, guys, hope you enjoyed your visit to Indianapolis!

Um, was I the only one in our corner of the fandom who didn't know that Craig Parker (aka Haldir) is gay in RL?

MEFAs 2011

Well, the results for the MEFAs are in - I know it's always a surprise when someone wins, but I was honestly flabbergasted.



Didn't think an obscure little fic about Lindir and Gildor and the different seasons of love would get much noticed in the MEFAs, but it did. Much thanks goes to [livejournal.com profile] levadegratchets for believing in it and nominating it, my beta Kei, and everyone else who reviewed.

It's that time of year...

Well, it's Christmas Eve, my work is done, all the MSV assignments have been sent and most of them have already been accepted. It's always nice to see people happy with their assignments too - a lot of thought goes into pairing everyone up.

Come on, Christmas, I'm actually ready for you this year!



My flist is awesome and I appreciate all of you. It's been such fun getting the Christmas cards trickling in. Merry Christmas to all who celebrate, and for those who don't, a very blessed end of year.

(Note: no, this is not my Christmas tree, but I know what I'm doing next year...*G*)
