First, Happy Birthday to acostilow and celtic_forest! Clearly, the Ides of March has a good side too. You're both such lovely ladies! And I will happily drabble you, if you wish. *brings cake*

I was going to post yesterday, but I was too busy flailing to get to it. I was tagged for the opening day of silverbullets, which I would never have known but for Deirdre C's thoughtful email. ♥ I spent most of the day trying to figure out how I was going to approach the prompt, and hoping my broken Sam/Dean porn fu would be up to the task. Started writing after 7pm (!), took a break for House, M.D., then poked through to the ending. Finally posted right around midnight.

Whatever else I thought I was doing yesterday, that sure wasn't it. :0

The errand I never got to on the weekend obviously didn't happen Monday, either. :( Both Saturday and Sunday were chore-heavy, with a total of 6 hours devoted to yardwork. Five of those were for putting systemic rose treatment on a 25-bush hedge along our side street, plus cleaning up the dead leaves (underneath) and dead limbs. My arms were stabbed and scratched beyond belief, but at least this year I finished the task early enough that I'm not doing it while the aphids themselves rain down on me. Yuck.

We watched Shrek Forever After on Saturday. I liked it quite a bit (and it's better than #3). There were hints of feminism, and unexpected evil-humor moments where incredibly wrong things happened that were all the funnier for it.

I also sincerely thought I'd get my last Prison Break Gen fic for krazykipper finished, but no. The beginning wrote itself! The ending is less cooperative. I had to rewatch "My Brother's Keeper" for research (thank you, Netflix!). I don't particularly like that episode, but it brought back wonderful memories of when the show was good and I was glued to the TV every Monday night to see it. *happy sigh*

Thank you so much, my friend! One of the presents I'm giving myself today is making time to read your silver bullets fic. Also, I'm going to take you up on the offer of a drabble, and daydream happy thoughts coming up with a prompt.
You're so good to me. <3

I'll be waiting!

Hope it's been a good day so far. I'm pretty scatterbrained myself, what with the time-change AND being up late to finish that story. And it is endlessly raining again, which in your climate could translate to much prettier snow. :)

Still warm and dry here, but you have me thinking I should check the forecast!
If you decide to do a drabble, and if you want a prompt (I'm sure you have better ideas than I do, so go with whatever), I'd say Sam/Dean "Next time."
*hugs* for the offer, and no pressure if you don't get around to it.

Ack! Well, this wound up being Sam&Dean, with that prompt. But I'll try for Wincest for acostilow's drabble, so we'll ALL win.

Meanwhile... the Gen drabble for your prompt is here. Hope you like it anyway!

Thank you! *hugs* I like drabbles. >.>

Any prompts, or do you want me to just cook something up? :)

Nah, I trust your brain. :-)
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Birthdayhalfshellvenus on April 6th, 2011 05:17 pm (UTC)

Latest drabble EVER is here.

I hope you like it, and I'm sorry I kept you waiting so long! :(

SCHMOOP! I am excited about this.

Word to PB eps. I have a list of faves that I watch when I can but it's relatively small, unfortunately.

A daily dose of schmoop! Mine's done, so I think I'm in the clear for awhile on the writing front. :0

I really enjoy most of the S1 PB episodes, but Brother's Keeper had the Secret Druggie Sarah reveal, the Michael&Lincoln Angry Estrangement tableau, and the Softening of C-Note storyline. It felt as if most of the characters were spun 180, and there were lasting effects of that episode that I never really cared for.

Much of the rest of S1 was Whee! or occasionally Meh... but not so much the NNNOOOOOOooooooooo!
