Happy Birthday, gretazreta!  
I hope you've had a great birthday thus far, and will have a good year to come as well!

Want a drabble? Just let me know! :)


Still cranking away at the writing, slowly. I've got some longer fics in the background (creeping or stalled-out), and some that are on my list to do this month. Porning Sam and Dean is one goal. I've started one of my Sweet Charity fics-- finishing it and starting the other would be great. I've got an Iron Man fic in the works, and a really heavy supply of birthdays this month (expect some more drabbles!).

On the plus side, I porned Michael and Lincoln AND got rid of that really pesky "purple" prompt for fanfic100. That one's been dogging me for years (now if only the various food/eating prompts would knuckle under). I've got all these wonderful prompts left in my prisonbreak100 table for Gen, but they're all kind of... momentous. As in, writing fluff for them would feel like I was wasting them. :(

What would all of you like to see this month? Maybe it'll inspire me!

For my quiz the other day, I see that most of the people from the various British areas were the ones to select the candy apples with the red stuff. athrosknot tells me it's just sweet glaze. Is it hard to make caramel apples in your areas? In the U.S., we just buy a bag of Kraft caramels and melt them down according to the instructions.

Okay, now my mind is in a very wrong and food-oriented place...

I know that a fic exchange is the LAST thing you want, but may I ceremonically try to beg you anyway to consider signing up for Yuletide? They have Chuck, they have Live Free and Die Harder, and a truckload of other fandoms. And it's just a 1000 word minimum. Plus, I'm scared to death! Ahhhhhhhh!

(sorry had to try)

Good luck with your ficcing this month :)

I've been thinking about it, truly. I'm such a n00b though, that I'm not sure what I'd be getting myself in for.

And I'm so distracted that I'm afraid I'll finally decide to jump on the bandwagon and discover that the deadline is over. :0

Deadline for sign up is Monday. Deadline for hand in is the 20ts of December I think. And there is no way you would miss any of it with all the flailing I'm likely to do on in my journal :)

And I'm a total noob at this too other than knowing mooyoo did it last year and loved it.

Okay, I've done it. *bites fingernals*

You did it? Omg, omg :) I can't believe that I just talked a whole bunch of my fave authors into it. Now I just have to pray/keep my fingers crossed that you don't get some terrible prompt/fandom.

So happy you are doing it. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I was kind of "on the honor system" for it anyway, since I'd submitted some fandoms.

But yes... I've left myself open now. :0

You know, I just noticed that it really must have been ages since I was last *properly* on livejournal - I'm almost not used anymore to get this many livejornal comment notification emails anymore.

I really have neglected it lately :/

We've definitely missed you. I keep hoping school will quiet down and you'll be around more often.

Thank you, I had a lovely birthday, all in all, although with a rather sombre ending what with our BAD CHANGE of government.

I'm behind on commenting but I meant to say that what you wrote about the US election (and Prop 8 etc) was very moving and well-put. I liked that your kids when they grow up will have THIS experience of why voting is important, and why being involved in society is important. That's awesome.

Now... which leads me to a prompt: Sam/Dean, election!

Thank you so much for your message!

Oh, I'm sorry the end of your birthday got tromped on by RL interference!

Are you sure this is the prompt you want? I'm only getting a Gen vibe off of that (Dean vetoes it as a bedroom topic). :0

You know, I didn't think I could make this work as Slash, but I think it's come around: On The Sidelines

Hope you like it! *hugs*
