On Monday again...

"What would you wish for Captain?"

Bones is nearby, so you smile and give one of those answers that people expect from you. They all laugh and you sigh internally and quietly wish for the one thing you've wanted forever it seems...for Bones to call you darling.

It's not just the word you want, (though it in itself is special. To Bones darling is for Joanna, his mother, or grandmother - well loved family) you crave the tone of voice he uses.
Bones has as many voice tones as he does eyebrow raises and they convey just as much emotion.

Although it's Monday here. I figure better late than never :)

Stolen from [ profile] romankate, [ profile] oddmonster, [ profile] little_tristan and lots of others!!

Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project -- published, submitted, in progress, for your cat -- whatever.

“I’ll be taking my leave then,” I blurted it out afore Mal could keep talking, but nearly took it back when him and the others stared at me.
Those gorramn twins were right; one day Mal’s luck was going to run out, and this might be the day. What with running through Reavers and all. That was what decided me right there. I might be all kinds of stupid and do all sorts of stuff for money, but I’m not so far gone I’m gonna take on a pack of Reavers for no reason. And there ain’t a reason.

Now if only I could finish it - or anything else! :D

This may be the only way my fics will see the light of day...

Stolen from [ profile] oddmonster & [ profile] tygermama. The first line from six of my WIPs - pray I finish the [ profile] reel_merlin one, 1st draft is due 17th May.

1. Through the view screen, space stretched out in front of her; magnificent, silent and…totally empty. The Out of Gas AU that was supposed to be my bigbang fic.

2. Sometimes I wish I’d made my journey sooner and never met Mr Ketchum again, but what’s done is done and we can’t change that. Mag7 fic - Obediah POV

3. He’d always wanted to come to Mars, and now he’d got his wish. [ profile] reel_merlin au, my movie is Total Recall

4. “It’s not fair,” Percy’s voice broke the post-practice silence and they all looked up expectantly, eager to hear the latest litany. Merlin fic - the knights as 'red-shirts'.

5. “I’ll be taking my leave then,” I blurted it out afore Mal could keep talking, but nearly took it back when him and the others stared at me. AU from the middle of Serenity the movie. Jayne bails out at Haven.

6. Dear Ma, Got me a new job. I'd love to finish off Letters and Corresponding notes, if ony I could figure out how :D

Meme stolen from [ profile] bookishtype.

Crime novels are my thing, though I'm not so hot on true crime I must admit :)

How many have you read?... reblog with the one's you've read in red (it said red but I couldn't do that, so mine are bolded :D). Read more... )

In which my geekishness is obvious!

Pinched from [ profile] bookishtype and [ profile] wily_one24.

List all of the television shows you have on DVD, no matter how obscure or embarrassing. Even if you only own one season, list it! Let's see who has what! This of course doesn't count downloaded series of which there are heaps!Read more... )

I'm not mentioning all the Power Rangers DVDs which the LG was obsessed with! :D

My mango tree has finally finished fruiting (yay for a freezer full of mango slices for the year), and is badly in need of a trim. So when I got home from work I sallied out with my extendable saw thingy and started sawing away. Read more... )

I had a lovely 4 weeks off and have now been back at work since last week. Read more... )

The LG will be in 7th grade this year and I'm busy buying books and things. His feet are now enormous (he's wearing size 10 1/2 men's shoes) so I'm waiting till the day before school before I buy any. Last year I bought a pair a term his feet grew that fast.

The brain fuzziness is becoming less I think and I'm off to the doctor next week for follow up tests. Then I might finally be able to assuage my guilt for not finishing my betaing for poor [ profile] tygermama & [ profile] sparrowwritings. The brain it will work!!!

[ profile] serenity_santa is so far doing well thank goodness. We've had just over half the gifts posted and still have half the month left to go. The comm is about the only fannish thing I've been able to accomplish lately, which leads me to the meme of the day and my usual caveats and andendums...

I'm hoping this will spur my muse to something, so if you answer it - cross your fingers and hope!!!

If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks (if applicable)... what's your ideal fic from me?

Meme time!

Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms.
You must then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

[ profile] strangevisitor7 gave me Doctor Who, Firefly and Magnificent Seven. geekdom abounds )

Snagged from so many flisters my head is spinning!

Leave a comment and I'll:

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something - fandom, a song, a color, a photo, a word etc.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you. (To which you must respond!)
6. Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
7. In return, you must post this in your LJ. (Only if you haven't already)

In an attempt to keep my stumbling muse going - I present you with...

The Timestamp meme!

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least 100 words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future. Anything is fair game--anything from chaptered and finished to drabbles to WIPs.

I love these memes! This time [ profile] noandwhere asked me about these icons...icons behind the cut )

Anyone else out there want me to pick some icons? *rubs hands together*
bookaddict43: (fangirl)
I'm depressed so I'm doing memes...

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

Lifted from [ profile] tygermama and [ profile] strangevisitor7: Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence.

Some of these are extreme WIPs, which means they haven't been edited or spell-checked or anything :)

1. Mr Chris stood and glared, hands brushing his guns; and Mr Ezra drawled something that back on the plantation would’ve meant a duel in the morning and the fella backed down.

2. She was loved and cared for, pampered and preened; a showcase of her parents’ achievements.

3. He trailed the blood from the engine room to the bridge and found Mal lying dead only inches from the button Wash had made.

4.“I was born in the seventh minute, of the seventh hour, on the seventh day."

5. He couldn’t believe the Captain had let the Sheriff and his goons take his guns.

Another book meme! This time a list of sci-fi/fantasy books. Stolen from [ profile] writersblock_va

Bold the ones you've read:
Italic the ones you WANT to read
And Strikeout the ones you only want to poke with a stick

My Score: 47/100Read more... )

But where's all the other wonderful sci-fi/fantasy type books that I've loved?

The Hobbit, everything by Stephen Donaldson, I Robot for god's sake????

What books would you list?

I'm pretty sure I've done this before - but I can never resist book memes. Really it's just proof that I either I don't have a life or do have an addiction!!

The BBC allegedly believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up?Read more... )

The last few piles of romances have been depressingly Sheikhless (yes it's a word *nods*). I've missed them so.

Today I catalogued

The Sheikh and the Christmas bride Read more... )

Now you can have a sickening synopsis (say that twice) of your own!...

Because of my brain being missing, I blame the floods; prompt: list is still standing at [ profile] firefly100 *pokes flist* and...

though I can't talk *shamed face*, there are still some outstanding [ profile] serenity_santa gifts owing out there *pokes again and smiles cajolingly*

After my quick visit to town I'm going to be stuck inside all day. The hordes of mosquitoes and my allergies to them prevent me going out for more than a minute at a time. So I'm going to try and write - get my muse back as it were. To that end I've stolen/snagged a couple of ideas from others...

From [ profile] intinerant_vae Comment with a story I've written, and I will tell you something about the story that didn't make it onto the page.

or old but good - The five things/times meme: Give me a prompt and a character and I'll see what I can do ex Five times Kaylee met a boy.

I can't promise anything...but I'm going to try :)
