Recs and other forms of love

Ha. I just found a note on my desk from #2 signed "Sallycat Fluffington." I don't know if it's a nom de plume, or if she's becoming a furry. Dear god, let it be the first one. Today two people that I love are having birthdays!! My boy (11 - 11!!!) and Lee, aka southernbangel! Happiest of days, Lee, and I hope you got your ice cream cake. You're my favoritest douchemonkey ever.

Random Recs to fics you may not have read, but you should:
Sparrow/Norrington, "The Starless Night" set in Dead Man's Chest by floweringjudas and she gets what makes them such an interesting pairing: SNARK. Mean, cruel, dark, and BRIMMING with UST. (She also writes AMAZING Percy Weasley, which... no, seriously.)

How about some Blackcest? "The Time You Were Born" Sirius/Regulus from Harry Potter, and just TRUST ME. Short, hard hitting, and v v intriguing. by slasheuse

I think most of you on my flist that are interested in the Office (US) fandom know these girls are writing an AU S2 filled with loads of Pam/Jim sex, but it bears repeating: warning_labels is FANTASTIC. I owe feedback to the last installment. I have one quibble, and that's a wish that each chapter linked to the next chapter at the bottom, but here's [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] and [6] for you. The authors are kyrafic, obsession_inc, annakovsky and honey_wheeler. All four of these authors write fantastic fics on their own. This together is... good hell, it's practically canon.

I dug up my entire front flower bed yesterday and I'm crippled today. Send Motrin. Send Demerol. Send... a Swedish masseuse and a Barry White CD. :D [ETA] I missed CJ's birthday! Happy (belated) birthday luvsxander!

Yay- Happy Birthday to the boy!

Thank you! (Pretend that's from him and I've passed it along. *g*) We celebrated last night and it was very pleasant.

I still can't get over that I'm the mother of an 11 year old. *cries* I still get carded!

Happy Birthday to the boy! Hopefully you won't kill him before he hits 12. :-)

Did you see the default drabble icon challenge? head to my LJ if you haven't, I think you'd have fun with it.

Thanks! And I hope so, too, heh.

Oooh, I didn't!! I will DEFINITELY check that out, yay!
Jan. 29th, 2007 04:03 pm (UTC)
Awwww, happy happy birthday to the boy!

Sallycat Fluffington! <3

*swipes a finger-full of frosting*

Is that not the most REDONKULOUS name you've ever heard? hahahahha.

Aw yay! I'm so glad I share a birthday with the Boy! I shall eat a slice of ice cream cake in his honor. Happy Birthday to the Boy!

Thank you for the birthday wishes, sweetpea. *loves on you*
Jan. 29th, 2007 04:23 pm (UTC)
I'm glad, too! January b-day peeps are AWESOME. *squish*

I wish I had it together more so I could have done more for you. (Is there anything you would want me to write for you? Or just love on you? I can do both. *g*)
Jan. 29th, 2007 04:42 pm (UTC)

Heee, I'm only kidding. Give the boy a big birthday high-five from me because birthday peeps have to stick together. *nod*

Is it bad that I see the fic rec for The Office and giggle because of all the wank that's gone on about it on Fandom_Wank? Probably is, but I can't help myself. That, and I can't help my reaction every time I read the screen name "Honey Wheeler." I wonder where Jim and Trixis are. Yeah, I read far, far too many Trixie Belden novels as a child. Did Honey Wheeler ever write Trixie fanfic? (I was stunned one day when I found an entire site of adult Trixie fanfic. And I shamefully admit, that if Honey Wheeler writes Trixe fanfic, I'd love to read some of it. Heh.)
Jan. 29th, 2007 05:23 pm (UTC)
Tha chick with the sockpuppets? Yeah, it's weird. But really, don't let it deter you from the fic (which is why we're here, right? *g*) It's AWESOME.

(And while I don't think honey_wheeler handled herself perfectly in that, she's an amazing writer.) I don't think I ever read the Trixie Belden books! *googles*
Jan. 29th, 2007 06:21 pm (UTC)
Trixie Belden was like Nancy Drew...only spunkier, tom-boy-like, and steadfastly middle class rather than rich (her friend Honey Wheeler was rich... and had horses, which Trixie was obsessed with and so was I as a little kid). All was well and good in the series until the 1980s writers took over the pseudonym and Trixie was reduced to searching for Sasquatch and the Headless Horseman. :)

Happy Birthday teeewww yEeeeewwww.....
YAY!! Aunt Tiff says happy birthday to my favorite nephew in the whole wide world!!!! Have a wonderful day. I CANNOT believe he is 11. Holy cow.

Jan. 29th, 2007 05:24 pm (UTC)
I. KNOW. It feels REALLY WEIRD. (He's going to MIDDLE SCHOOL next year. Augh!)
Jan. 29th, 2007 06:50 pm (UTC)
STOP IT!!! I was talking to AL today and she said in 10 years I'll be in my 40s. I said "It's worse. In 10 years I'll have a 19 year old." For some reason that makes me feel older than saying I'll be in my 40s soon. I don't want to grow up. I'm a toys r us kid!!!

What did you do for his birthday? Did the family come over?
Jan. 29th, 2007 05:35 pm (UTC)
Happy birthday to the boy!!!!!!! I hope he's having a fabulous birthday!!! *g*

Thanks for the recs! I'm very intrigued by the Office fic and will have to check it out!!!
Jan. 29th, 2007 05:38 pm (UTC)
THANK YOU!!!! *hugs*

And seriously, ANY Office fic by those four is going to be top-notch. Forget the drama - they got chops. :D
Jan. 29th, 2007 05:53 pm (UTC)
Happy birthday to the kid! Party at your house!
Jan. 30th, 2007 05:24 am (UTC)
YEA!! Happy Birthday to the boy!

Thank you muchly for the Jim/Pam rec. I have been trawling the internet for fic. You know how brain numbing that can be.
Jan. 30th, 2007 01:48 pm (UTC)
Thanks! And have you seen the Office newsletter scranton_times? Here are two fics that I thought were better than average: 5 Times Roy Thought Pam Was Having an Affair and 5 Things Stanley Would Rather Be Doing Than Working at Dundler_Mifflin. Both of those authors turn out top-notch fic.

Thanks for the linky dinks. I am down with the flu this week. I have been marathoning The Office season 2 and buying my fill of season 3 off of ITunes. Now I get well written fic.
It's comfort food for the brain.
You are a gem !
Jan. 31st, 2007 01:15 am (UTC)
STONEY!!! I <3 you so much. Thank you for the bday wishes. Belated only means I get to celebrate more often. I keep trying to tell people that my bday is such a tremendous deal that it should happen more than once, but no one listens.

BTW, I love your icon. Something about big, long, hard....words just gets to me.
Apr. 2nd, 2007 02:32 am (UTC)
Just thought I'd let you know, we took your suggestion to link to the next chapter at the bottom of each fic. Thanks for the good idea!
Apr. 2nd, 2007 12:35 pm (UTC)
Oh, terrific! (And I've been waiting for a few more installments as I love having multiple chapters to look forward to.)

It's a fantastic story you four have created, so thanks for that.
May. 29th, 2007 06:26 am (UTC)
Thank you, and thanks so much for the reccing! It's really cool to see how much people enjoy the series, especially since all of us look forward to the next installment too. We should have another soon, I hope!

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.
