2nd-May-2013 11:22 pm - Apologies and a link to a new fic
mom's flower
I post my supernatural fic over at my site at Archive of Our Own, and not here. So this is a notice that I've posted a 300-word piece over there called "Twice Twenty-Five," which is about the fact that Sam's 25th birthday occurred twice. It's for the ohsam H/C celebration of Sam Winchester's birthday.

I apologize to anyone who still cares about my Buffy fic. I do have sequels to "If the Phones Does Ring, You'll Know it's Bad News" and "All The Difference," that I still work on from time to time, and I really do want to finish them one day. Apparently I'm a lot better at short fluff, or even short despair, than I am at actual plot. The annoying thing is that I know how both of the sequels end, but I'm having trouble getting there at the correct pace -- slow enough for satisfying plot development, fast enough to not put anyone to sleep.

So, in case you were wondering, I'm not dead yet. :-)

All the Difference
Written for Summer of Giles
Beta'd by Mr. Jay
Word count: 1600
Pairings in the fic: Giles/Xander, Giles/Jenny, Willow/Kennedy, Willow/Tara, references to Anya/Xander and Giles/Ethan

Okay, so I fail. I wrote a long song and dance about why I fail, but then erased it. As my mother says 'Fine words butter no parsnips.' No, really, she says that. This will have to be a first story in a series. Part two coming to my live journal soon.

Also, I've started a bingo card and am using this towards one of the squares. I'll say which one at the end, because it could be considered a spoiler.

Also, con crit always welcome. I'd especially like to hear about it if I've committed any 'Americanisms.'

I've been without electricity or internet for 3.5 days (and yes I do live in the so-called developed world, why do you ask?) so this is really only half a chapter instead of the intended completion of the story. I promise to finish by the final posting free for all at the end of the month.

Sorry to get only one chapter up today. The original plot had a small whole in it that bugged me more and more as I worked on this. This morning a whole new (better I hope) direction for the plot occurred to me, and I'm reworking everything I've written. Those of you paying attention will also notice that there has been some tweaking of the pairings for this fic. There will be either 6 or 7 chapters in total. My next posting day is July 2.

Inspired (this chapter especially) by reading antennapedia's wonderful Watcher's Child stories.

11th-Jun-2012 08:09 pm - Has anybody seen my muse?
mom's flower
I'm finally working less insane hours at work, and I'm trying to motivate myself to write more. I've signed up for summer_of_giles and my first posting date is in 9 days. I'm working on a couple different stories because I'm not sure which one I'll be able to finish.

I also signed up for hc_bingo. My card is under the cut below. I think the story that follows "If the phone don't ring you'll know it's me" and "If the phone does ring you'll know it's bad news" would counts towards invisibility. Xander is definitely invisible, but it's not what I normally think of when I think of invisibility. I mean, it's not a super-power. Anyway, all the more reason to work on that story (working title used to be "Crossed Wires," but is now "Failure to Communicate")

I have begun to write the occasional short supernatural fanfic. I haven't posted them here yet because anyone who has friended this journal did so for the buffy fic and I'm not sure you all would be interested in the other (besides, they're gen, not slash). If anyone is interested, though, I'm posting them in my AO3 account. Someday I will be a good do-bee and get all my fic posted both here and there.

26th-May-2012 10:18 am - Help Us Support Planned Parenthood

I think it is really cool that LJ is doing this. I've sent my donation directly to planned parenthood, so I get the tax deduction. But I'm putting this on my journal to show my support.

Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).

During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.

                    

Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

Giles and Xander belong to Joss and Mutant Enemy, not to me. I make no money, I have no rights.
Summary: It's too soon after Anya's death for Giles to make a move, but there are other subtle things he can do.
