Writercon UK Midimeet Aug. 10th, 2007 @ 01:10 am
I hope everyone who's going to the Midimeet this weekend has a wonderful time! As you all know, I was meant to be going to this, but circumstances dictated otherwise. It was to have been my first weekend away on my own (ever!) , but because of the complications with K's surgery it wasn't to be. Ah well, never mind. These things happen. :)

I know it's going to be difficult, but I'm sure you're all going to have a fabulous time...even without me being there! ;)

And don't listen to [info]spikereader when she tells you what a quiet person she is - because she really isn't! Heh.

Don't forget to tell us all about it when you get back. I expect to hear every little detail. :D
Current Mood: envious

Yay! Aug. 7th, 2007 @ 07:11 pm
Success! After a bit of tweaking, I've managed to work out how to post to multiple journals at the same time. :D

*does the snoopy dance*

Now I can drive you all crazy entertain you from all over the place! Heeheehee!
Current Mood: bouncy

I thought I might as well give it a go. :)

All credit goes to TubbyK over on CDS. Just scroll down a bit. Thanks to [info]bendy1 for the heads up. :)

Read at your peril...MAJOR SPOILERS )


Is it 2008 yet?


Squee! The Friday Night Project with JB Jul. 27th, 2007 @ 10:58 pm
I've just seen JM on the Friday Night Project with JB. :D

There was no mistaking that laugh! Hee!

It was very brief, but the boy looked good!

ETA: He was on the set of Torchwood. :)

Happy Birthday! Jul. 27th, 2007 @ 12:09 pm
Wishing a very happy birthday to [info]kassto! I hope you've had a wonderful day. *hugs*

Sorted! Jul. 27th, 2007 @ 01:21 am

Sort me!


Happy Birthday! Jul. 26th, 2007 @ 11:43 am
Wishing a very happy birthday to a special lady who hasn't been seen around LJ for a while, the lovely [info]amybnnyc! I miss seeing you around, Amy. I don't know if you'll ever see this, but I wanted you to know that it was so nice to finally meet you in May, albeit very briefly. I hope that wherever you are and whatever you're doing, life is treating you well. I hope you have the best birthday ever, and that the year ahead is a good one for you. *many hugs*

Lots of birthday wishes! Jul. 25th, 2007 @ 05:47 pm
I've missed a lot of birthdays over the last few months, so I'm going to do one great big belated birthday post for everyone I've missed. I know how lovely it is to be wished a happy birthday by your flist (I was so spoiled on my birthday this week!), so I apologise for how late these birthday wishes are! *hugs*

Wishing a belated happy birthday to:


[info]wendylouwho, [info]julia_here, [info]renee2939, [info]fierydemise, [info]danaid_luv, [info]treacle_a, [info]frimfram, [info]vampkiss, [info]hobbituk, [info]lmbossy and [info]herself_nyc.

I hope you all had a wonderful day, and that the year ahead will be a good one for you. Special birthday wishes go to those of you who I'm especially close to. You know who you are! ;D

I don't think I've missed anyone out, but if I have, know that I wish you all the best for the coming year.

*hugs to you all*

» LJ
I see LJ is down again. I hope it's back up again soon. I was hoping to catch up on some fic! Grr.
Still more or less on hiatus, but wanted to show off my gorgeous new LJ banner and icons made by the lovely [info]kazzy_cee. Thank you, Karen. I love it! *hugs*

It looks like everyone who managed to get to Cardiff had a wonderful time. The actor who plays Ianto in Torchwood joined James on stage for a song, and a few of the cast were in the audience. I'm still gutted that I couldn't be there (although I don't regret the decision not to go - it was definitely the right thing to do!), but I'm having a great time reading all about it from those who were. My only consolation is that it wasn't John Barrowman who joined James on stage. I really would have been miffed if I'd missed that. The stuff fantasies dreams are made of! ;)

You do realise I've finally been converted to slash, don't you? *melts*

» Cardiff a washout?
There's a possibility that we might not be able to go to Cardiff after all. We really want to go, but the flooding and torrential rain along the route might make it an impossibility for us to get there. My husband has just checked the travel news, and the route between Birmingham and Cardiff doesn't look good.

Keep your fingers crossed for us. I'll be gutted if we can't go! :(
» Playing with my layout
I've spent way too much time playing around with my layout tonight. I have to admit I actually found it a lot of fun! Just the sort of distraction I needed. :) I still need to tweak things a little bit, but at least I managed to sort out the black text on a black background thing in my comment box. I was lucky to have received any comments at all! It can't have been an easy thing to do. [info]elisi and [info]hesadevil deserve a medal for even giving it a go, never mind managing to type their comments without any mistakes in them at all! *g*
» LJ?
Is anyone else having problems accessing LJ tonight? I can't access it at all.
» Dropping in...and some fic recs!
After having an almost complete break from the internet for a while, I thought it was about time I showed my face again. :)

And what better way to show my face than with a couple of fanfic recs?

During my absence I've been immersing myself in Spuffy fanfic. Practically drowning myself in it, in fact. Rather than allowing myself to wallow in a bucket of self-pity (which would have been *so* easy to do *g*), I've thrown myself head first into the wonderful world that is Spike and Buffy.

So on we go with the Spuffy. :)

Let's Get Lost by [info]herself_nyc

From the author:

A slayer on the run from her duties, and a vampire on the run from his soul, meet up in summertime Manhattan, 1997 ... and like everyone else in summertime Manhattan, head out to the East End of Long Island ....

Now complete, with a sequel planned for the future. This one has *really* started people talking. Unforgettable. Join [info]herself_nyc_fic to read.

Heart Don't Lie by [info]nautibitz

From the author:

An authorized sequel to OFQ (Original Fanfic Queen) Saber ShadowKitten's "Humping Like Bunnies" (Read it first! You shan't be sorry.) She supplied the brilliant title for a sequel, I went from there. In the previous story, Buffy and Spike were -- oops! -- transformed into rabbits by Willow. Humping naturally ensued. Here's the zany aftermath.

As good as complete, with an epilogue to come. Hot, funny, hot, snarky, moving, smutty, brilliant dialogue...and did I say hot? ;) Excellent! Join [info]nautific to read.

And last but not least, the wonderful [info]anaross has started a new Spuffy fic! Only one chapter so far:

Gimme Shelter Chapter One by [info]anaross

From the author:

AU after Not Fade Away. Takes place in London. Giles is running the Slayer, Inc., and has bunches of teenaged girls defying his every command.

Amnesia fic! What's not to love? :)

All three fics are completely different, but are all Spuffy at they're very best. Enjoy!

And for those of you on my flist who might be interested...

I'm going to Cardiff. Yay! :D
» Insane Journal...and Fandoms Colliding!
My Insane Journal

I definitely like it more than Greatest Journal. LJ is still going to be my main journal, but I think I'm going to use IJ as somewhere to escape to when I need to. It has a very similar style to here...and there are already lots of familiar names over there! :)

When Fandoms Collide (cut for Heroes S1, Doctor Who S3 and Torchwood S2 spoilers) )
» First IJ Post
I signed up for an IJ account a while ago, but never actually got around to using it until now. I quite like what I've seen so far. I think I'll be keeping my LJ as my main journal, but this will be a nice place to escape to when I need to! :)

It's great to see so many familiar names around the place! Yes, I think I'll definitely be sticking around. :D
» Pimp Time...and Congratulations!
It seems that June is the month for great new communities! Want a general icon - one that's not related to a particular fandom or celebrity? Then [info]gen_icons is just the place for you. Go check it out now! :)

I'm slowly easing myself back into fandom life again following my enforced absence due to RL issues. While the issues of my RL still remain, I feel that the time is right for me to try and get some sort of "normality" back into my life again. And that most definitely includes fandom. As crazy as fandom can be at times, it really does help keep me sane! :D

And before I forget, congratulations to the wonderful [info]lmbossy on the birth of her new baby daughter! I can't tell you how good it feels to be able to announce some good news for a change. :D I'm so happy for you, Claire! Can't wait to see the new arrival. I'm sure she's every bit as lovely as her Mum! *squishes you* K sends lots of love and kisses to you both. *hugs*
» New Spuffy Fic Rec Community
A wonderful new Spuffy fic rec community has opened. [info]spuffy_lovin will have a new theme each week, voted for in a community poll. The theme for this week is time-travel, which is one of my biggest fic kinks. There have been some excellent fics posted already, so get on over there and check them out! :)
