Thank you to everyone for their loveliness in my last post--my aunt is doing better. Not great, but better. Anyway, your comments were like hugs when I needed them most, so seriously, thank you.

Also, okay, I have REALLY EXCITING NEWS. And somewhat less exciting news to follow. BUT FIRST:

OMG GUYS LOOK: EEEEE. Kara, my darling dearest, recorded my crazy Guided Tour to the October Country fic and it is fabulous and she captures the Frank and the Gerard voices so well. *flails all over town* Seriously, the whole thing is delicious and shivery and just like I imagined it. And she did a crazy fantastic job, especially since I liberally splashed the whole fic with random Egyptian words and shit. Poor Karalarabelle. <3

Also, ahaha, for those of you who didn't guess, I am de-anoning and owning up: I wrote the Laurence/human!Temeraire fic for the Temeraire Kink Meme. Oh, yes. OF COURSE I DID. Anyway, I am schlepping it up on AO3 and will post it here to LJ and  to some of the Temeraire comms for completeness' sake in a moment. So, uh, sorry if you see dragon porn all over your flists for a bit.

Anyway, I still owe about ten thousand fics, and I am sorry! I promise I am working on them all. I am just terrible at brevity. And timeliness. Terrible, terrible, terrible. Expect evidence of this to appear in the next few days.

Things that aren't awesome:
  • making decisions about my future
  • making phone calls
  • writer's block
  • the lack of a decent time travel/teleportation device in my life
  • still out of diet coke, woe
Things that ARE awesome:
  • [livejournal.com profile] regonym made a podfic of Observer Effect! GAH IT IS AMAZING I WANT TO LISTEN TO IT FOREVER.
  • [livejournal.com profile] brimtoast , full stop
  • my cat is curled up in my lap, my little basset is sleeping next to my knee, and the old man is sleeping on my foot. all three are snoring.
  • Pepper Potts (and also Tony Stark, I SUPPOSE)
  • Tonight I am going to a Lady Gaga dance party in the park. I am dressing up. There will be an adorable toddler with me. IT'S GOING TO BE AWESOME BEYOND AWESOME, TELL YOU WHAT.
So. Tell me something not-aweseome/awesome about your day!

Another ficlet from the [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti  Lightning Round! It is taking me forever to get these out, I am sorry. :|  It was a busy week, and also I have fallen head over heels for White Collar. PETER BURKE. YOU SEXY FBI MINX.


Title: If This Is A Family Reunion, I Wasn't Invited
Rating: Gen
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] regonym gave one of the most awesome, appropriate prompts ever and I finally got it out of my head and into words: a conversation between Death and one of the members of the Umbrella Academy. This takes place in the short story at the end of The Apocalypse Suite, "...But The Past Ain't Through With You." Thanks as always to my beta, [livejournal.com profile] brimtoast, who (also as always) made this a better story than it would have been on its own. And hugs forever to [livejournal.com profile] fictionalfaerie , who is the best cheerleader out.

ETA: And regonym then did a REALLY LOVELY THING and made this into a podfic, and it is wonderful, go listen immediately!

and we all get together when we bury our friends )

So, I was just feeling low and awful that I am extremely broke and also ill right now, and so can't donate any blood or money to help the earthquake victims in Haiti. And then I found this comm, [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti. And you guys, I don't know if anyone is interested, but I will totally be offering up fics for this. So if there are any stories you've been wanting me to finish (besides ghostfic, okay, WE'LL GET TO THAT LATER) or a pairing you want to request,  ANYTHING, all of my fandoms are up for grabs, and I have a lot. I am a fandom slut, okay. The Demon's Lexicon, Sherlock Holmes, bandom, Indiana Jones, Jonanthan Strange & Mr Norrell, Temeraire, Due South, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Star Trek: TOS and Reboot,  Merlin, Batman, FtA RP fic, WHATEVER. Harry Potter, Gentlemen Bastards, Neil Gaiman, Stargate Atlantis, Everwood, Torchwood, Lewis, Generation Kill, Umbrella Academy. I could go on. If you suspect there is some fandom I would write that I have neglected to mention, comment and ask me!

But yes. This is my pre-pimping post. *g* I would love to be able to contribute and help somehow, even if it's in a small way. And it just makes me feel better, even if I can't offer a lot, to be reminded how amazing fandom really is. It's just so fucking fantastic, the way people pull together and offer their help at times like this. I seriously love you all, even the people I don't know well yet. <3

In other cheering news, the [livejournal.com profile] no_tags bandom exchange fics are up! GO AND WALLOW IN THE LOVELINESS! I am still plowing my way happily through them, but I will probably create a recs post later. And, oy, the yulerecs will be continuing. That Yuletide, you guys. It generates a lot of awesome.

In addition, I have another bit of awesome to pimp you all: if you like Kradam, and you like podfic, my darling dearest [livejournal.com profile] brimtoast has just put up an AMAZING file. It is the first half of Paper Gangsta, and seriously, her voice is like candy. Like chocolate! It is a joy to listen to. AND NOT TO GIVE ANYTHING AWAY, BUT SHE SINGS A TINY BIT. AND IT IS LOVELY. So go, go download!

So [livejournal.com profile] fictionalfaerie  was upset and sad, which I am bitterly opposed to, so I thought I’d finally finish one of the Merlin prompts she gave me to try and cheer her up. Instead, this happened. Um. Sorry, bb! I promise I love you! Have some tortured!Merlin.

Title: The Sword and the Faith
Pairing/Rating: Merlin/Arthur pre-slash. Or gen, if you like. PG-13 for implied violence
Disclaimer: Merlin and Arthur belong to the world! These particular characterizations belong to the BBC, though.
Word Count: 900
Summary: A group of insurgents kidnap Arthur’s pet sorcerer; Arthur takes this very poorly.
Warnings: Implications of torture and general slaughter, nothing on-screen, though. Also, un-betaed. Title from MCR's Desert Song.

ETA: The lovely [livejournal.com profile] regonym has done a podfic for this! *runs gleefully in circles* You can download it here, and be sure to leave a comment at tell her how awesome she is!

carry on through cartilage and fluid )
