Final Voting Today for Prison Break Fanfic Awards  
Just a reminder, today's the last day to cast your vote in the Prison Break Fanfic Awards. A number of people on my f-list are counting on the outcome of the awards... and heaven knows, I'd like to see actual slash win the Slash Awards nominations.

Over at the Prison Break Fic Exchange, all the stories have been posted and the Author Reveal is coming up Wednesday. Great assortment of stories covering many characters and many approaches-- Gen, Drama, Angst, Romance, Het, Slash, Humor, Crack. Take a peek!

I haven't forgotten my Supernatural Love in the meantime, and hope to getting more than drabbles up soon. I'm pretty sure I have a fic deadline coming up, like, today? (ulp!) for something in SPN. And two lovely prompt tables to work from, plus all my half-started stuff. :0

Someday I'll recc kids' books (no, seriously) on here. I'm in the middle of reading Fergus Crane to my son at bedtime, which appears to be set in a 1900s-like timeframe and involves the title character having adventures (what else?). He's enrolled at the "School Ship Betty Jeanne," along with only 4 other students all of whom met the requirements for being "agile, athletic, good at squeezing through small spaces." They work on "Potholing for Beginners" (still don't know what or why that is yet), and Gym class frequently involves Tunneling Exercises, which are tunneling through various paths into the hold and coming up elsewhere on the ship. The ship appears to be run by former pirates, but the students are as yet unaware. Meanwhile, the chapters all begin with pictures of various dejected-looking fish on bicycles, which cracks my son up bigtime.

This week's Prison Break: Michael gets dumber, Lincoln gets hotter, and T-Bag gets yet more homicidal. Wait, that's pretty much every week. No spoilers needed!

I spent the last few days poking everyone I could to get out and vote. I wrote drabbles for everyone who told me they voted yesterday.

Go someone to make icons and passed them out.

I've done everything save sending Alex after them to get out the vote.

Guess we will see how it pans out in a few days.

Oh and you forgot Alex gets crazier ( which Pam find very HOT ) to your little list there.

I was thisClose to putting that in there! But then I thought, well, what if it's spoiler-ish?

The key part, though, being crazier. ;)

Who wrote Fergus Crane?

Sounds like a good book, and I have to read a slew of children's books for my lit class.

I'm going to try to post up my Children's recs (at least, an opener) for you tomorrow.

I got waylaid tonight by, um, the spn_outsidepov fic that was due today. Which I finished before midnight! Whoo!

I knew that the timing in parallel with the PB Fic Exchange was going to nuke me. :( Still made it though. Just barely.

Now that's something I completely understand. I just found out that I'm working 12+ hour shifts for five days next week, right as an absurd amount of homework comes due, so I'm busy annotating a textbook I have no desire to read.

Yeah!

Still hoping that you win something, babe. Your fic is soooooooooo good (it gets me teary and tightens my chest sometimes), it would be nice to get some recognition for that. I know it's not necessary for you to get any recognition (that's not why you write, I suspect), but by winning, your work could very well be exposed to more folks who want to read it, and that can only be a good thing. Keeping my fingers crossed for you. Please let us know how it goes down!

Thank you so much, monotonygirl (and for your bids over at Sweet Charity!).

I don't know what the fallout will be, but I'm kind of flailing over being the only truly Slash author that survived the "Best Slash Author" category-- :( -- and one of two in the "Best Slash Story" listing. That just never should have happened.

Your words about my stories are so very kind. That's a huge reason for writing-- to move readers as well as amuse them. :) ♥

Hahahahaha! I'm determined to be the highest bidder! I want my own Wincest! Mine, all mine! It's for a good cause, and I know that you'll write it eventually, but it will be cool to have something crafted to my specs (schmoop, schmoop, and more schmoop). I laugh, I cry, I shudder with glee, but I just WANT MORE.

And I really do hope you win. I think you deserve, it, ESPECIALLY if you're the only one who truly qualifies ;)
