STOP THE PRESSES.

I AM TAKING ICON REQUESTS. I fully intend to spend tomorrow on the couch, watching Le Tour de France Stage 19, and will need something to do in between shouting wildly at the screen at Andy Schleck (I kind of love him, okay) and entertaining the poodle.

SO.

ICONS.

I will take:

IMAGES, which you would like me to icon.
QUOTES, that shall be made into text icons.
SUGGESTIONS, for things that I should iconify.

And cookies. I do love cookies.

Also, Andy Schleck:



Because REALLY, if you want a good looking guy? Find a cyclist.Collapse )

Here's an untitled ficlet piece, a snippet of a scene, and it's late (sorry!) birthday present for the ever wonderful kcountess!

Jack Bauer / James Bond, adult content (really just the mention of said content, nothing actually scandalous, but there is some language and themes!), in an established sort of AUverse we've written fics in before. 1142 words.

I LOVE YOU, KAREN.

He had known Jack would protest the choice of champagne over whiskey...Collapse )

title: a ridiculous man and three dogs
rating: pg
fandoms: 24 redemption / avatar ; milliways verse post-canons
characters: carl benton / trudy chacon
spoilers: for the ends of both canons, with a possible au!twist if we ever get to that point in milliways gameplay?
wordcount: 968
disclaimer: i don’t own even a piece of it so don’t sue me please
notes: written for ashen_key, as part of my holiday fic requests; she wanted carl and trudy post-canons, with puppies and a house somewhere.

She can hear him singing in the kitchen when she opens the front door, so she makes sure to shut it as quiet as she can in an effort to sneak into the house without him noticing.Collapse )

And, on a less soul-searching subject than my previous post:

HOLIDAY FIC REQUESTS


Now, I'm not doing these advent style (as I don't know how busy work may get) and I reserve the right to take all the way up until New Year's to get them done, but feel free to request a little something from me and I'll stuff your virtual fic-stocking with a goodie or two or three.

Fandoms include the obvious ones from Milliways and the ones I've written for before (Young Guns, 24, Skellig, Harry Potter, James Bond (movies), Star Wars, Jonah Hex (movie), The Dark Knight, 3:10 to Yuma) but if you've got a super special request (or a M'ways crossover) I'll try my best.

I'm not promising novels, either. Just a little bit of delight. Give me characters or pairings or a line/lyric or let me have free rein, anything goes.

So I suppose the question is as follows:

What could I possibly offer to do for people in order to earn some cash?

So, um. Yeah.

I made it to Denver!




Annnnd, then it exploded.



For the record, it was not my fault. Sweeney, Aspen, and myself were situated at a bar with an excellent view of the street -- when suddenly the power went out. I glanced out the window to see a towering fireball roll up into the sky, followed by thick black smoke that plumed up like mad.

Since there was nothing to do but sit and wait, we used the combined power of smartphones to deduce where the smoke was coming from. Thankfully it was just a substation (even though there's power affected 2/3 the way to Boulder, so Sweeney says) and there's only been one reported injury so far.

We are all safe (even though there was a solid loss of power here at the house) and we've got net and power and later, we'll have pie. But sheesh. Welcome to Denver.

Claim a letter based on the prompt and give me a character. I'll write you a drabblething/ficlet/whathaveyou. Gonna stick with my fandoms and Milliways and rp group verses for this one to try to keep my brain. These will probably be SHORT little snippets. (Also, I am having urges to write 24 fic. Brain oh brain.)

Ask away! I am going to go unpack, and grab a shower, and clean my room up a bit in an effort to wake my brain up from a nap. I love naps! I just don't love what they do to me post-nap. One more day of work tomorrow, then WEEKEND.
