Lovely Birthday, Lovely Friends!  
Oh, I heard from so many wonderful people today.

Greetings from many friends and friends-of-friends, including witchofthedogs, jellicle, wenchpixie, thelana, impertinence, alazysod, tenaciousmetoo, lampshade_days, flipmontigirl, and girlmostlikely.

Birthday balloons from particlesofgale! Thank you, dear lady, for this and your lovely friendship this past year! And an adorable box of virtual chocolates from sweet sargraf, whose SPN meta makes me swoon.

And the fics.... Shall I list them? :)

Haunted by missyjack-- Sam/Dean, great Sam angst and wonderful use of the prompt!
Cherry Soda Kiss by pheebs1-- Sam/Dean schmoop and sweetness. :)
Ten Below by pamalax-- Prison Break M/L slash with snark, allure, and mmmmarvelous descriptions of the seductive powers of Lincoln's voice
J-Squared Drabbles on Pirate-themes by deirdre_c, because of... YOU know. :D
Peace In Our Time by poisontaster-- Sam/Dean healing and schmoop with a touch of angst, and just... Guh!
General Store, Monday Morning by moveablehistory-- Sam/Dean schmoop and teasing tenderness, and so very sweet. :)
A Birthday Cake for Dean by kdsch123 (her first SPN fic, written for 60_minute_fics and the ongoing birthday challenges. Winchesters and birthdays and the dangerous subtext of girly-man cakes. :D

UPDATES!:
Supernatural "Dirty Boys" banner" by merctales :D
Untitled Prison Break Fic by mooyoo, where she attacks one of my PB pet peeves and grinds it into the dirt! \o/
Spoken Like a Winchester by lissa_bear and fiddleyoumust. Coda to "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things", and it finishes what the show started but left hanging once again. Perfect title-- you'll understand when you read it. :)

Might see something from alazysod in the next few days, and meanwhile...

Thank you one and all! ♥

Thank you so much, Athena!

I think I lost half my SPN f-list to the post-Winchestercon brain-mush, but thank goodness some of you are still a little lively. ♥

Thank you, usagiko! It was very nice-- and with an incredible SPN ending to go with it!

What a birthday present from the show, OMG! Did you see it??

Hope you had a wonderful day, dear!

*HUGS*

I did! Go, Jensen! What a broken-apart, chaotic feeling to the whole thing, and finally one of the most important scenes ever. Although it peeves me that Sam didn't put his arm around Dean at the end, because "What can you possibly say that would make me feel better?" can only be answered with touch. There are no _words_ that could ever help, but comfort doesn't always come from words.

But! Breaking out of my pesky meta-mode, I did have a wonderful day-- and thank so much for your gift. :D It just thrilled me-- and I'll get to look at it for several weeks and be thinking of you. :) *hugs and kisses to you* ♥

Oh, I do love this idea. :)

I'm going to go with... Michael/Lincoln. ;) Big surprise!

Can't help noticing that your birthday's coming up. How about you? Might inspire me to write some M/L for a change (the muse, she is on vacation and does not return ze phone calls...)

To the Unofficial Queen of Drabbles: Happy (belated) Birthday!

I hope it all went well! Did you get everything you asked for? :)

:D Thank you, Pixel!

I think I did-- don't need much these days, and I got some lovely fics and pics from people. :)

I have a new road-bike, and I'm trying to make the conversion over to it (the fit is different. Always makes for a huge adjustment, no matter what). Have little hand-drawn cards from the kids. And (I hope) a trip to Apple Hill on Sunday, which is a favorite fall-weather thing for me.

Love your icon. It's so cute. :)

I'm behind in PB fic but I only read your recs anyway. More importantly, happy day!

Thank you, Bluesister! It was a lovely birthday, and I hope to continue the celebration this weekend (since there's not much we can do in the middle of the week).

If you're feeling brave, try out my "Fallen" for the Prison Break Fic Exchange. It's everything I never write. And the two for me by pamala and mooyoo were a lot of fun in completely different ways. :)
bluesister on October 21st, 2006 06:43 pm (UTC)
Fallen is full of sticky images, isn't it? I keep recalling bits.

Reading, reading. Thanks for the recs!

It was lovely, and thank you so much again for the sweet remembrance. It touched me deeply. :)

I saw your post on the play, and I'm glad you enjoyed it so much. Plus, a good time with some friends-- those don't come nearly so often as we need. :)

MMmmmm-- virtual cake is the least dangerous kind (yes, that's the kind of thing you think about at my age), and always so pretty.

Nice presents, weren't they? *snuggles them and their lovely creators* Makes 43 seem much less deadly. :)

:D Thank you so much! And what a relief to hear from you-- I was going to email you today, since it had been so long since we'd heard from you (6 weeks or so? That long since your last post?)

Lovely banner! *grabs it gleefully*

And I'm so looking forward to your comments. :D
