Prospero Año y Felicidad!

Here's that year in fic thingy but a) it's good for me to see what I've done and b) it's only things I really liked and c) it's

I've added some commentary about feedback, my own expectations, etc. when I felt the urge because *points to name of journal* This isn't me whining about feedback, because I think overall I get a lion's share, for which I'm grateful. It's more an inner dialogue typed up, is all.

Angel: The Series, aka: All. About. Connor

Maybe the second most favorite thing I've ever written, and I sweated blood for this. I was so happy to see Connor-fen come out of the woodwork, although I was disappointed in some of my "Connor Homies" staying away, and it made me feel like I wrote OOC or something. Isn't it funny how we want validation on things? (I'm hoping to quit that crap in the new year. Ahem.) At the end of the day, I'm very proud of this and hope it's a good reflection on how I write, what I like to read, and what I love about my fandom. There Is No Happily Ever After: Five Fairytales That Weren't

I love the Connor/Angel/Holtz relationship (no, really?) and wrote a short ficlet: E Nomine Patre I want to have a sequel posted soon.

Which led to me writing some absolute CRACK with Connor and Pyrate Spoike set to Wynken, Blinken, and Nod. I'm broken inside, and you've all been warned. (it was National Talk Like a Pirate Day!)


There was RPS with Jake Gyllenhaal and Vincent Kartheiser. And I want that to be one of my dying images burned forever in my brain, those two bodies. (Um, Jarhead was entertaining. AHEM. Guh.)

Pirates of the Caribbean

And while this may possibly be my most favorite thing I've EVER written of anything, there's only a small group of people willing to trust I wouldn't bore them with Sparrow/Norrington Fish Tale fics. Ah, well. I'm very happy and proud of it, so yay me! You Had A Charming Air, All Cheap And Debonair PG-13, humor and adventure, all chapters linked.

Some fun things EXCEPT NOT: I almost sent the raunchiest (for me) fic I've ever written to my FATHER. Wait, I DID! But he couldn't open it, THANK GOD. It's here. It's sad. It's Sparrow/Norrington Jail Sex "Last Request" and has a "prequel" linked here.

Parody Fic, Humorous Fics, GenFics, Femmeslash, Multifandom (mostly BtVS, a Scrubs, an Office, and three Couplings)

I finished my Silence of the Lambs parody fic with Buffy as Clarice Starling and The Mayor in Hannibal Lecter's role. It had sat as a WIP for almost a year until I finished it. Well, I thought it was funny. Who doesn't like the idea of Quentin Travers doing rhythmic gymnastics and the splits while twirling ribbons in a three piece tweed suit? Or, was it the incredibly weak title? Okay, I give you that much. Silence of the Hams, all chapters linked. Also, there are a LOT OF FANDOM INSIDE JOKES of the wank variety contained. Heh.

I thought I wrote these a few years back, but it was almost a year ago. Coupling UK fics, which there is a sad lack of in the world.
It's All Very Confusing But Quite Familiar, a Jeff POV that takes place leading up the infamous Infertility Clinic scene in Season 3. Slash, and humorous.
The Power of Words, a Steve POV about how they're ALWAYS in bed together on the show. Haha. Slashy and humorous. I wrote another one that wasn't slash, but about Steve and Jeff's relationship called Breasts, Wardrobes and Best Mates.

entrenous88 had a Scottish Ficathon, and I got to write about Andrew and Jonathan AND Sean Connery AND Ewan McGregor, so there's nothing but joy there for me. What I Did On My Summer Vacation, by Andrew Wells Both chapters linked under the cut. PG and humorous (Uh, I'm seeing a trend there.) I wrote another Andrew fic with Xander (I Have A Bad Feeling About This) for the lynnevitational that the person never replied to. Does that mean it sucks? *shrugs* It's in script format, which I prefer, but I think most of you don't. Oh well. It's a nice little fic with good geek references, imo.

*cough* A series of fics from prompts including a Yoda/Chewie NC-17 drabble for [Bad username: tkp>, a <a href=]Will Ferrell love story</a> between him and his fresh, hot cookie. Aw yeah. Hahahahaha. (I can seriously see that last one as an SNL short film. And then I would die happy.)

I'm waiting to hear back from McSweeny's about them publishing my Easter Song Parody for the upcoming Easter season. Natch. Set to "Thriller," "EASTER!" Whatever, I LOVE THIS SONG. Hahaha. (it helps if you're listening to the song, btw. NOTE: they have a slightly different version, but I won't reprint it until I hear back.)

marlo asked me to write a Spike/Faith fic, and after re-tooling it, I'm much happier with it. NC-17, Something That Never Happened In The Summers' Basement I also re-tooled a Fred/Faith fic with the help of dodyskin and I like how that one turned out, as well. Untitled Doctor-Kink Femmeslash, NC-17

Apparently I wrote a lot of silly fic. This was one that I wrote in my head on a run and stopped and held a tree to laugh. That must have been fun for the drivers passing the crazy tree-hugger. Spike Vs. Chuck Norris.

I tried my hand at a couple of new fandoms, met with resounding MEH from said fandoms. But I thought they turned out fine for first fics, personally. "Another Prank At Dundler Mifflin," an Office genfic, and "My Observed Holiday" for the Scrubs fandom, and the sitcomathon ficathon that turned out some SERIOUSLY great fic. (and was the first time I've had the requester comment, although the hosts of the ficathon didn't so... score? Is that normal? Should I take something away from that? Well, I am.)

I've got a WIP that I don't know how to finish that I started for the Gud Summryies Ficafunathingathon. "I Gave My Heart To Jesus, But I Left My Soul For You." I seriously had a blast writing that, but the well dried up. Maybe I'll try and hit that this month. I hate having a WIP.

Meta, Rants, Random Meme-type Posts

I had two rants that got out of control re: comments, and in one case, with nutjobs. One on expecting excellence in writers - as in do your best. Why that's a hard concept.... and the other on the homophobic letter I got from a garden company. I also wrote the "Jossverse Fandom Kerfuffles In A Nutshell."

I did those "My..." memes. One for Principal Snyder and Mayor Richard Wilkins, III. Those are fun.

I did a few movie reviews, but watching The DaVinci Code with cherusha in NYC and howling with laughter is a HIGHLIGHT of my life. Seriously? Was anyone like... on the edge of their seat and didn't see the end coming? SERIOUSLY?? *boggles*

I tried my hand at some meta of the religious vein involving Connor, Angel, and Holtz from AtS. I could talk about this stuff all day, for real.

And now for something completely different, because I have had three days of Metal, and I'm loving it. Anyone out there watching/watched Metalocalypse? It's possibly the best animated show about a fictitious heavy metal band (Dethklok) that is also the 12 largest economy in the world. Because it's the only one. GOOD LORD I love this funny funny show. My husband got the first season as an X-mas present from me, so we've been rewatching the series. And I may or may not be writing Skwisgaard Skwisgelf/Toki Wartooth fic. I am BELLY LAUGHING as I type that. My favorite is Skwisgaard, the Fastest Fingers in Metal. His catch phrase is how everything is dildos. Ahahahahaha. If anyone needs help getting episodes, lemme know. I'll totally hook you up. 20 episodes, EVERY ONE A GEM. Even if you aren't a fan of metal, YOU WILL BE AFTER WATCHING. Heeee! (say the following in a Swedish accent) "All the others panties waste musics is dildos. Pfft." Gah, SO. FUNNY. (And the music is AWESOME. No, really. It's all the big names in music and they are SO GOOD, and funny. Like the song Mermaid-er. About Mermaid Murder. Because it's BRUTAL. [/metal voice])

lml ^_^ lml

And today the In-Laws are coming over to eat steak and black eyed peas (for luck in the new year, for those not familiar with the custom) and I'm keeping my ballcap on. I am not interested in getting gussied - it's all about chilling out at my end. *stretches legs* HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!

Well, I have 200 words already so doost offs that pedestals. Peoples who donts like the metal are dildoes.

And I LOVE the "food library" episode. Man, that show just gets funnier with every episode. (And Mark Hamill is one of the voices!!)

I see Silence of the Ham in my future even if it is non-kosher.
Jan. 1st, 2007 11:52 pm (UTC)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! And yes, that parody is VERY non-kosher. I believe there is dairy (cheese) and ham together, so... :D

I was off-line during the summer when the actual due date for the Gud Summries Ficathon came due. Is there a link anywhere to the fics? And please, please tell me someone wrote Dark humor, drunken Welshman and prebuscent kleptomaniacs - all in a Victorian London setting. *crosses fingers and hopes*
Jan. 1st, 2007 11:53 pm (UTC)
They DIDN'T write that! Isn't that sad? There were some good ones, though. I have in my tags the "Gud Summries Ficathon" with the master list! Go crazy nuts! (Um, be aware that some participants didn't get that it was to be funny, so... Yeah.)
Jan. 1st, 2007 11:58 pm (UTC)
No one wrote that? WOE! I was so hoping . . . *sighs* Ahem!
Jan. 1st, 2007 11:54 pm (UTC)
Oh, also the link I have above with my fic listed will have a link to the Masterlist, as well. :)
Jan. 2nd, 2007 12:09 am (UTC)
YaY! Found it and bookmarked to read.
Jan. 1st, 2007 11:58 pm (UTC)
It makes me sad that the person who requested the Xandrew fic didn't leave you any FB. I *loved* that piece. Yeah, maybe you missed a few prompts, but it was an honest effort, you *nailed* the voices, and you worked your ass off. It's not like you wrote HP crack!fic.

Though maybe if you had, you'd have heard a lot more about it. *g*
Jan. 2nd, 2007 12:03 am (UTC)
Honestly, this last ficathon I participated in was the ONLY one where the requester commented. I either fail at ficathons (likely) or just give off bad karma (also likely). They stress me out, and I think it shows, or something. I don't think I'll particpate in them again, truth be told.

And hahahahaha - HP CRACK FIC. Dewd, I would have had LOADS of comments, especially if there was teh butsecks. But you know, I don't want to complain about fb - I get it for every fic, so I'm grateful for that.

AND HI LYNNE!! Hi Hi Hi Hi!!

You know, you and Ron would actually like the show, too. It's HILARIOUS. It makes fun of the "metal" hardcore lifestyle (everything is steel with spikes, etc. Which is a joke in one episode where the band makes cell phones and people die from using them - ha) but if you know the inside scoop on various rock/metal bands, it's funnier.

But seriously: check it out, if you can! Funny, funny.

Oooh! We had champagne, too. Mmmmm. (I like mine with a splash of peach nectar, myself.) And that's funny about Evan - Emily just came in after guzzling some hot cocoa and told me she's drunk. Um... *checks to make sure I didn't leave any out*

You are responsible for two of my most favorite things, both Sparrington. I'm SO GRATEFUL to you for that!!! *hugs you*
Jan. 2nd, 2007 12:49 am (UTC)
FANDOM: Shipper wars, yo!
JOSS: Spoor!
JM: Complies. Also: naked.

::iz totally ded::

This rocks. As does the conch shell of control. (BtVS/Lord of the Flies crossover fic? C'mon, you know you want to write it!)

You are brilliant.

Jan. 2nd, 2007 12:59 am (UTC)
Dude, you know... a BtVS parody of Lord of the Flies would be AWESOME! Now, who would be Piggie? *taps chin* Probably Season 1 or 2 Willow!!

Gosh, I LOVE that idea! YOU are she who is awesome! :D
Jan. 2nd, 2007 05:14 pm (UTC)
Shall we agree to mutual rock-age?

Hmm. I rather see Jonathan as Piggy myself. Giles as Jack and Buffy as Ralph, with Willow as Simon and Samneric played by Angel and Spike? Can you tell I've taught this book far too many times? *g*
Jan. 2nd, 2007 05:39 pm (UTC)
Well, clearly the solution is to re-read the book and make a list!!

*rubs hands*
Jan. 2nd, 2007 02:39 am (UTC)
Metalocalypse is awesome. My friend Chris got me hooked on it.

Your fic round up has reminded me that I still need to read "You Had A Charming Air, All Cheap And Debonair" so I thank you for that reminder and I will get on top of it tomorrow b/c work will be slow.

Happy New Year, darling!
Jan. 2nd, 2007 03:58 pm (UTC)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! One thing that was great about my NYC trip was meeting YOU and laughing so hard my stomach ached. You are SO MUCH FUN.

And srsly: Metalocalypse is BRUTAL. [/gravelly growl] Man, I LOVE IT.

(Oooh! I'd love for you to read it!)
Jan. 3rd, 2007 04:56 am (UTC)
There might have been a Metalocalypse marathon playing during the New Year's party I attended, and I might have been sitting on the couch laughing my ass off at it. But NO ONE CAN PROVE IT!!!!
Jan. 3rd, 2007 12:47 pm (UTC)
*in the most brutal and metal of voices* DO NOT BE AFRAID OF YOUR LOVE OF DETHKLOK!!

Because a) it's funny b) the music is friggin' AWESOME and c) it's HILARIOUS. :D
Jan. 5th, 2007 06:49 am (UTC)
Missed this first time around and I am SO glad you compiled it all. I wanted to put your RPS on my big damn recs but I had no frakkin' clue where it was. Oy. 2007 will see me organized!

I still have your poc fic on my to read list--looking forward to it, and I'm saving this list 'cause I missed lots of other things, too.

And I don't know why I thought Connor was a princess--it was being sold off; I associate that with princesses. The thought of that fic still makes me laugh.

This is great fic and funny and meta. You made last year brighter, Stoney.
Jan. 5th, 2007 06:50 am (UTC)
oh oh, and YODA/CHEWIE. Was a highlight of the year.
Jan. 5th, 2007 01:48 pm (UTC)
Heee!! ZOmg he wuz knot uh princess, cuz he has a dingdong an used it! (You know I wasn't mad, right? 'Tis mock offense.)

And you kn ow I'd love it if you read and told me about ANY fic I wrote, so score for me! Some of the threads we had going this past year were some of the funniest things in the WORLD.

And who else shares my Anne love? You, that's who! Who's a little goofball? Huh? Who's my little meta and Anne loving goofball? :D

(And Yoda/Chewie made my LIFE better, and I have YOU to thank. Hahahaha.)
Jan. 9th, 2007 11:36 pm (UTC)
Hee! No, I knew you weren't mad...I'm just miffed at myself for not remembering Connor's, uh, position in that truly brilliant piece of work. I've . . . had some conversations with ros about Connor the princess in the birch forest and like, the hunter man with the buckskin breeches . . . that's how come I was confused.

Hee! ME ME ME! I'm your little goofball! There needs to be more Anne in the world. I wanted to know if when you were making the muffins with a wooden spoon whether you were thinking about Diana watering the rosebush on your grave with her tears, and whether it was such a tragic story and you were crying so that you forgot to put the flour in the cake.
Jan. 9th, 2007 11:38 pm (UTC)
Ahahahahahaha! I was, but mostly I was fingering the black tresses (I don't have any black dresses) in my apron's front pocket and consoling myself that if I didn't have my bosom friend, I did have a higher score than that Gilbert Blythe.

:D <3

He never expected to beat you.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
