~~~~~

Danny's eyes slam shut as your hand slides over his cock and you can't help kissing him. His lips are as irresistible as the rest of his body and you taste and taste as much as you can.

You need to savour this and imprint it on your memory because you know he's not here for good. He'll leave if Gracie needs him and you would never stop him. Never.

Danny's commitment to Grace, to his family, is one of the many things you love about him. You can't deny it hits all your buttons and it's why you won't beg him to stay when the time comes.

So you carefully lock away every memory of him and keep kissing and kissing, tasting and inhaling against the time your life is empty again.

I suddenly realised that I can't cross-post from LJ at the moment. So here's the first of 2 H5-0 fics

Before he’d gone on his first mission one of the training sergeants had given him a piece of advice. “Find your special place,” the guy said. “A memory or place you love and go there when things get too rough. It helps if you’re captured or in trouble. You’ll be grounded and can think better and faster. It could save your life.”

He’d thought it a load of BS at the time. They’d been trained and drilled in every aspect of contact with the enemy and how to cope with it. Besides how could that work? Day dreaming wouldn’t save his or anyone else’s life.

But the first time he’d been incarcerated he’d dreamt of home. It was just like he was there, back in the happy days, back before his mother…went. The sun was setting as he and Mary surfed and ran on the beach, reds and golds adorning the sky. He could hear the soothing surf in the background and his mother calling them for dinner as his dad pulled up in the driveway. He and Mary raced across the grass and into the house and mom yelled at them to wash their hands. It was perfect…

He’d been to that place a lot over the years. Consciously thought about it; willed it to appear. When injured and in hospital, imprisoned or captured, it was his go to place. The image had given him strength and at times helped him to remain sane, and he’d fully expected it to appear again here in the prison.

Instead he got Danny. He saw Danny in the car, hands waving in agitated semaphore and voice raised; Danny in the office, brow furrowed in concentration as he waded through reports; Danny and Grace and Steve sitting having dinner on the lanai; Danny’s voice calling him and Grace to dinner as they played in the waves under the setting sun. He and Danny in their bed surrounded by love, comfort and safety. He was the stronger for it, but was puzzled and unsure. It was all he could do not to reach out to the real Danny when he appeared on visits and when he got out, it was worse.

But he beat down the urges, locked them away and resolved to be patient. Because the first image of his family, though long past, was true. So maybe the new image, his new family, his reason for waiting; might come true someday soon.

Check out this article explaining what the Wall Street protests are all about. It's a great overview.

I'm hanging out to watch episode one of Season two. But first the LG and his mate must play Halo on my TV and then I've got to take them fishing. But in about 3 hours...

Me being me however, I'm reading all the episode reaction posts and for heaven's sake...

if you're watching for the plot only - go watch another show.

Ok H50 doesn't have the most coherent story going. But so what. That's why we write and read fan fiction. What the show has in abundance is gorgeous scenery and cast, a story that rocks along with a touch of action, a bit of angst, lots of fun and some of the best character interaction. Enjoy it!!

[livejournal.com profile] festivids has announced that nominations for this year are now open. Festivids is the vid communities Yuletide, so if you're a vidder - check it out!


While I was typing this I just had a beautiful Blue-winged Kookaburra perched on a branch outside my window. He had a staring contest with Rex (the dog) and then took off. Hope he comes back to prettify the yard :)

The LG is flicking through the channels and has stopped on 'In the night garden' to torment me. It's horrifying!!!!!!!! *runs screaming*

Thank god the program didn't exist when he was little - I think I'd be traumatised for life :DD

Today my computer is recognising the WiFi, but for some reason I can't read my flist! I can individually access comms, but when I click on the Friends page - nada.

Anyway, last night when I couldn't access the Wireless from my computer I was reading on my iPod. Reading the internet on my iPod is always productive of exasperation as I get aggravated with having to make every page I go to larger and that when I do so, I end up hitting Copy everytime which dims the screen, and then I can't read anyway *pouts*. So I'm bitching about this and then I think 'self get a grip! Do you remember when...?'

The first time I ever read a fanfic was about 32 years ago, and boy was it different then.

I was 17 when someone at work handed me a much photocopied, handwritten and carbon copied stack of papers with the remark that since I liked Dr Who and reading, I might like to read it.

I took it home and started reading and it was so different and interesting - I was hooked. Despite the terrible handwriting, the story got me in and I adored it. It was Nyssa/The Keeper of Traken and as such blew my mind. After all the KOT was a statue and Nyssa 17 or younger, not a relationship possibility that (at the time) I would ever have imagined. The Dr was there being his usual self and it was all new and not finished...

I rushed back to work and found the person who gave me the story and begged for the rest. But it turned out her cousin hadn't finished it. The cousin however sent me a zine to read and the rest is history...

How did my flisters get into fanfic and fandom in general? I'd love to know :)

Sigh

Now my computer won't connect to the Internet. It won't let me enable the wireless or plug the phone line in!
I guess I'll be sneaking lj at work for awhile. Those of my flisters I'm beta'ing for I'm
Still here!
However if you want to send the money fairies - I won't send them away ;)

bookaddict43: (huh)
Is anyone else having problems with this??

I was getting Sunday's Signal ready to post and first LJ posted it without me finishing it and then when I edited and saved - it's lost my whole post!!!!!!!

Now I'll have to try and reconstruct the whole newsletter tomorrow morning before I got to work :(

Not happy...

Episodes 8,9, 10 of Game of thrones??

The LG and I have devoured eps 1-6 in two days and I can get the 7th, but haven't found the other eps!

Has anyone got a link to these? I'd really love to finish the series. I never thought I'd like it. The changes from books to screen usually drive me insane, but this...is good!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] weepingnaiad for the lovely sunflower and hugs! *hugs back*

6 1/2 months since Cyclone Yasi and the builders are finally here! Without any notice I might add. Oh I knew they were coming, but did expect to have a little time beforehand to clear out the mess in the sheds and maybe pick up all my fallen branches. But on Tuesday morning I got a call at work from the builder who was sitting out the front of my place. He asked if he could start work and I was all 'yes, yes! Please yes!'

So they've finished the veranda, carport and patio roofs and are in the middle of replacing my sheds. It's awesome! The carport roof is probably 200% nicer than the original and the half-built shed is not rusty :)

[livejournal.com profile] space_wrapped is gearing up for the coming winter celebrations. I wonder if I could actually finish something?

[livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl just posted a nice Firefly/Torchwood crossover Dropping by. Jayne's POV on Jack Harkness - a fun read :D
bookaddict43: (she posted again)
The LG and I are watching Moonlight and we're on the final episode. I told him it was cancelled and there's no more. And he's all "but it can't be cancelled. The guy and that girl have to have babies like he wants."

One aspect of the pernicious anemia is that the last 2 weeks before my three-monthly B12 shot comes along, my memory is shot. Read more... )

Anyway this is my convoluted way of telling folks that I've changed my email address. After my gmail was hacked, I eventually got back into my account, but wasn't getting any mail. None...zip...nada. Also my contact list was all kerfuffled. So after Google's totally unhelpful suggestions I just gave up and started a new account. I had that mail address for damn near 8 years! The new address is bookaddictforty3 at gmail dot com if you want to write to me :) I guess The Signal admin definitely needs to know this.

My computer is staggering along, periodically suffering the blue screen of death; freezing unexplicibly and generally dying. The other day it shut down while I was syncing my iPod and cleared all my songs off and PaintShop won't start anymore. *sobs* So I'm trying to save up for a new compy. Are any of my flist out there using Mac's? And if so - do you like them?

*sigh*

Well it looks like LJ is down again? Anyone know what's happening?

Though some of my lovely flisters are over here, most of the comms I love exist over on LJ as do lots and lots of friends. I'll never fully move from there - I just wish the site was more stable :(

Does anyone have any favourite Star Trek, Merlin or Hawaii Five-0 comms here on Dreamwidth?
