I am back!

darkhavens: (woo! [literati])
I am back from the wilds of Kittyville!

Fun times were had by all. Alcohol and delicious foods were consumed in abundance. [livejournal.com profile] suki_blue was lunched with and, let me tell you all, she is an sneaky enabling enabler! Thanks to her evil evil evil generous nature, I now have in my possession ~60 Justice League of America comic books, plus two starring The Flash, all canon for the ficcing. (Also, a deepening curiosity about Dick.)

And thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kitty_poker1's generous hubby (and live-in masterchef), I also have 50 more of The Flash in digitised form, and a whole bunch of Batman movies. (Oh, and five seasons of Two and a Half Men. So silly, but oddly addictive.)

The journey out was easy enough: smooth ride, easily made connections, with only a minor hiccup in that Google maps lie about where Fenchurch Street Station is! *writes them a stern but educational email*

Then, on the way back, I got onto a Circle Line tube train at Tower Hill, aiming for Paddington, and was mildly amused that my MP3 player random-shuffled its way to Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street just as we pulled into Baker Street station.

Sadly, the amusement was shortlived. As we pulled out of the station, it was announced that the train I was on was no longer a Circle Line train and that all people who got on it expecting to actually get to their Circle Line destinations should get off at the next station because it was being hijacked by TPTB to go to Hammersmith instead. I didn't even know they could do that! But, a connection was found and I managed to get myself all the way to Paddington (the very next station on the Circle Line) without getting lost... much.

And all that excitement has worn me out, so now I will relax and start digging through everything that's piled up in my absence: 200 emails, a flist of skip=bajillionty, and an answering machine full of aural spam. Tis a hard life, indeed.

So... what have you all been upto?

ETA: I came this > < close to buying a netbook. I was petting it and reaching for the plastic. I managed to escape uncharged but I fear tis only a matter of time...
darkhavens: (woo! [literati])
If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

I'm not only posting the sentence, I'm off to visit one of them!

[livejournal.com profile] kitty_poker1 and her hubby have the dubious honour of several days of my company, so I won't be here to keep an eye on things. [livejournal.com profile] literati will be wielding the mod-hammer in a bunch of my comms during my absence, and I'm trusting you all not to break the internets while I'm gone. Play nice. I will be checking up on you!

And now I have to go finish packing and remind myself not to forget my tickets (this time).

*smooches and hugs to all*

So, I was confessing to [livejournal.com profile] entrenous88 about my newest addiction - Batman/Flash (Bruce/Wally) fic (yes, cartoons, comics, I have gone animated, people, are you happy now, world?!) and she said maybe I should do that meme that was going around last month where you list your top ten pairings and let other people comment on what trends they see. So...

Vaguely in order of adoption, these are my boys:

Spike/Xander (Buffy)
John Sheppard/Rodney McKay (Stargate Atlantis)
Sam/Dean (Supernatural)
Jack/Nathan (Eureka)
Connor/Murphy (Boondock Saints)
Dexter/Miguel (Dexter)
Jack/Ianto (Torchwood)
Nikolai/Kirill (Eastern Promises)
Mulder/Krycek (X-Files)
Batman(Bruce Wayne)/The Flash(Wally West) (Justice League)

let me have it. :D

[livejournal.com profile] ship_manifesto is going to be five this year, and to celebrate, the mods (of which I am one) decided to poll the masses to see just who the ultimate pairing might be. To that end, there will be polls running from now to August, and the first one is up, so...

GO VOTE NOW!

Summary: Xander gets lost. A lot. A solution, of sorts, is found.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan, this ficlet exists as part of the established relationship Protected!verse (see post tags for previous ficlets), in which Spike and Xander decided they wanted eternity without risking Xander's soul and self by turning him into a vampire. Instead, they have bought, procured and earned various spells and markings that Xander now wears, protecting him from a variety of dangers and possibilities. Can be read as a standalone.

Rating: From G to R
Concrit: Please. If you spot a typo or a grammar glitch, feel free to tell me in comments.
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Warnings/Squicks: Iambic pentameter; Xander gets vamped a time or two in verse.
Notes: A couple of weeks ago, I got bit by a poetry bug. It wasn't a bunny - there was no plotiness involved (originally) - it was just an irresistible urge to write Spander poetry in as many forms as possible. So I did. I even went to Wikipedia and found new forms of poetry to play with. Written for [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan.

These are the results.

Seven Japanese Poetry Forms and a Limerick )

'Sacrifice', a Sonnet )

'My Spike, in the Key of Dru', a Villanelle )

Previous chapters: This is another peek into the Medlar!verse (see the medlarverse tag). If you don't care how they turned to the dark side, and what else they've been upto, you don't need to read the others to enjoy this one. (Medlar: a fruit that ripens by its own corruption.)

Thanks to a wonderful donor (who shall remain nameless so as to protect them from their flist), I have a Dreamwidth account: darkhavens.

(NB: I am not leaving LJ. Not unless they kick me out. I have comms to run and a flist to obsess over!)

As per the donor's request, I have created a bloodclaim over there, which will become operational once I've imported everything and made sure I haven't cocked it up. *g*

I have also created slashthedrabble and slashtheimage, and new prompts will be cross-posted to both LJ and DW (so I don't get confused *g*).

Way back in January, once again staring at an empty page in MSWord, I decided to do something drastic: I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] findyourwords, choosing 50,000 as my target wordcount for the year 2009. That's more than I've written in the last two years combined.Wordcounts (posted fic only): 2006=53k, 2007=25k, 2008=22k. EEP!

I then continued staring blankly at various empty pages until March, when I discovered [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic and became addicted. A couple of days ago, 6 weeks on from word one, I broke the 10k barrier and decided to get myself a widget to celebrate:



*hugs you all and twirls*

(snagged pretty much wholesale from [personal profile] bead, who snagged it from... well, you get the idea)

Since Dreamwidth has this nifty 'subscribe' and 'grant access' split, we can all take advantage of it.

Please feel free to subscribe to my journal without granting me access if you only want to read fic or public entries. You don't need to share with me to read my writing and I won't feel slighted or left out if that's what brings you here.

Reciprocally, don't feel that I am being mean or exclusive if I don't automatically grant access, either. If I start using filters, I'll just forget to check them and end up feeling guilty for ignoring everyone when I finally do remember, so. I want to take advantage of Dreamwidth's tools to structure an access list that is tight enough I won't need to use them.

I reserve the right to rethink this policy at a later date, of course.

*plants flag in new corner of Darkhavensville*

I'm here to poke about and see how this new toy works. Porting my LJ over here is a future plan, but, as of now, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens is my main home. (Links go to LJ, yay for handy-dandy site-specific code!)

Bloodclaim will also be making an appearance over here, once I figure out the import tools (and learn to trust them). Quite possibly, so will a few of my other comms. ;)

Notes: [livejournal.com profile] cjmarlowe wanted Rebel Without a Cause, Jim/Plato, visions of the future (yes, [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic yet again *g*), and I wanted to see it too, but I hadn't seen the movie in years. But it wouldn't leave me alone, so I found and read the script while acquiring the movie, and then I started to write a tiny little 'fix' for the ending while watching the last five minutes over and over again...
