The Friday Five - Spring Edition

1. What is your least favorite part of Spring?

The dampness... snow is still melting in places, the ground is still wet and the concrete is holding both cold and damp... makes even a warm-ish day cooler. When it's 40-ish outside, I'm turning the furnace up a degree to combat the damp feeling.

2. What is your most favorite part of Spring?

More daylight! Brighter days. Warmer days!

3. What is the latest good book you've read?

I read so much fan fiction that I haven't read a 'real' book until I joined a book club recently.

"Eleanor Oliphant is Fine" is an interesting read. At first, the first person POV was annoying, but then it was an important part of the story... it's a good read, well written and has a twist at the end that I didn't see coming. Recommended!

4. What are your plans for this weekend?

Saturday will be faintly lazy, but Sunday night we're going out to fancy dinner with friends. I've been looking forward to this for a while! And I'm on mod duty at [Bad username: inkingit out]This entry was originally posted at https://goddess47.dreamwidth.org/73442.html. Comment here or there as you please.</span>

Upcoming Rough Trade and me!

The upcoming Rough Trade project for April is to write a sequel to an established work.

I'll be writing a sequel to "Embrace the Silence" (on AO3 here: https://archiveofourown.org/works/2551211

I won't be cross posting much anywhere, because I'm going to be busy slogging out 30,000 (!) words over the month of April.

You don't have to create a RT account to follow along, but you do need one if you're at all interested in cheerleading... ;-) Once April is over, the story will go away (that's the usual protocol) and I'll probably be working on making it shiny to share legitimately... so you'll get to see it eventually...

There will be other stories there, too, so if you're interested in some new works, you may want to poke around. There are some interesting looking stories in multiple fandoms that you may want to keep an eye on. It's a reader's paradise. No guarantees that the stories will be perfect or even finished, so you'll have to take anything you see with a grain of salt. And it's run by Keira Marcos, so you have to obey her rules on commenting. (Bottom line: no questions, no critique and only positive comments!)

I'll be doing some other work through the end of the month, so there's a couple of weeks to go before April starts... but I'll pretty much only be doing that one fic through April.

Swing by, if you're so inclined!

Friday Five -- St. Paddy's Day!

1. Have you ever made corned beef and cabbage?

Of course! Making some this weekend! Mostly for me, the hubby doesn't care for it!

2. Will you be tipping back a decent pint of Guinness this weekend?

Not a Guinness fan... but I could go for some Irish Whiskey!

3. Do you own an Irish wool sweater?

I love the look, but wool makes me itch too much! So, no, don't own one!

4. Have you ever ‘met’ the Tart with a cart (i.e. have you been to Dublin)?

No. (Maybe not yet! My brother wants to go... )

5. Do you know what tractors, submarines and ejector seat all have in common?

Not a clue! Toys for boys? Huh. I googled it (and not telling), but I should have guessed!

Fandom Trumps Hate Bidding!

I have an offering on the FTH project here: https://fth2019offerings.dreamwidth.org/116827.html

Bidding on fic opens at some point today and runs until Friday, March 1 -- details on the page above. It's a teeny window, so don't think too long if you're even faintly interested.

It's all for a worthy cause, but also don't do anything you can't afford!

Thanks for even thinking about it!



Still on vacation! Yay for wifi, but family wants to do stuff that doesn't leave time for much else... le sigh!

FandomTrumsHate previews coming soon!

I've put an offer of fic on the [community profile] fandomtrumpshate project that will be opening soon.

If you've not run across this project before, it's a fundraising activity for a bunch of different organizations.

As a reader/donor, you find folk like me that you'd like to write a fic for you. You bid on my services by promising a dollar amount to a specific organization. You get to pick the organization, I've allowed donations to any that suit your particular values. But they've vetted the organizations reasonably well, so wherever you choose to donate, it's a good cause.

Highest bidder makes a donation directly to the organization, and then we negotiate what kind of fic you'd like. I've made offering in Harry Potter, Teen Wolf and Stargate: Atlantis for a fic in (I think) the less than 5000 words category...

The actual process is being run on Dreamwidth this year (evidently, last year was on Tumblr).

Previews of what's being offered (and there are a bazillion of folk offering fic and other fannish things) opens in the next couple of days and then actual bidding starts after that. If you have even a faint interest, you should subscribe to the comm on DW so you can see all the information.

If you're interested in being a sport and bidding on me, don't go crazy... even a few dollars to a good cause is a Good Thing.

I can answer questions about what I know, other questions I may refer you to the comm for...

But, it's a small way to do some good.

Hope you at least take a look, when the previews open!

Sleep! The Friday Five!

Questions from [community profile] thefridayfive

1. What size (twin, full, etc.) is your bed? -- queen (and twin, when the hubby is snoring!)

2. How many pillows do you sleep with? -- one

3. Do you have a weighted blanket? If so, does it help you? -- no; I'm usually too warm for a heavy blanket

4. Do you sleep with any stuffed animals? -- no

5. Do you have to have the TV on to go to sleep? -- at home, no. When traveling (especially by myself) in a hotel, I like the TV on really, really low, so that I can barely hear it.


My first time actually answering the questions... but it's a low-stress comm, and answering five questions is easier than some of the bazillion question memes that I've seen go around.

Have a great day!
