roxy: (happy birthday)
Sent my drawing to spn_heatwave, and now it's all over. Except for a sketch I want to do of a slightly AU Dean. We shall see!

Right now, I'm a few thousand words from posting a Public Enemies update. Having some problems because it involves violent sexual situations. The larger part of the AO3 update has already been posted to LJ. There are some changes, but it's basically the same. I've been pecking away at it for, what, almost a month? I'm determined to post before we leave for my brother's this Friday. *resolve face*

Still chillin', still eating birthday cake, wooo!

BD wishes!

Thank you so much, for your posts and messages and gifts and all your well-wishes. It really made my day, you don't even know! I love you so much!

In the spirit of this year's BD Month, my laptop seized up and refused to work. Or worked sort of intermittently. I spent a lot of time sneaking up on it, Wiley Coyote-style, trying to work past the glitches and tics and sudden comas. Mr. R has got it behaving again after working on it most of the night yesterday, but I sense it's just waiting....

So, the month is winding down, and summer is too. I'm taking the time to finally *really* look at the [livejournal.com profile] spn_heatwave art pieces. I'm astounded at what's possible, and I wish I knew how to do what they do! I just plug along all dinosaury-like, paper and pencil and lots and lots of erasers. MANY erasers, lol! Still, I'm happy with what I did, so I'm looking forward to seeing what ya'll think! :D

And in other news, DOG! Stop begging for ice cubes and dropping them willy-nilly all over the house!

BD month!

So, self-recs, how about them? :D

I'm reccing a story of mine that's not that well written, but it was *full* of enthusiasm. It's not that I've gotten so much better, it's that I realize now that a beta is a very good thing, plus I'm way less full of the belief that my prose is scintillating and needs little improvement. Still, it's one of my fav stories, and I'm going to tell you all about it! )

or should I say CURSE MONTH....

Yesterday, on my way down the stairs, I took a step that made my whole world light up. I felt like my entire inside was filled with exploding mini-lights--for a second all I saw were lights, and then the PAIN. Like I'd gotten shot in the knee with an elephant gun. I couldn't even whine, and you know it's serious biz when I can't whine. Anyhoo, long story short, for most of the morning my knee hated me with a wild passion, but we're on speaking terms again and it's acting like it is as innocent as a new-born babe. As if it had never caused me excruciating pain. Weird. My calf muscle is aching, I guess from hobbling around. Boy, if this month gets more exciting I don't think I'll be able to handle it.


I've got plans for this LJ and bd month. I'm thinking some self-recs, because it's all about me, maybe some talk on original characters, and why it's okay to self-insert. Because I have. And it was fun. ;D

BD month,

you continue to suck. I've been sick on and off, and yesterday came home from work and crashed like a crashing thing. The extreme fatigue should have tipped me off, but for some reason, intestinal upheaval continues to come as a total surprise to me. It really shouldn't be surprising, considering. Stress, emotional meltdowns, they all work to make my body unhappy. So, my evening was spent sleeping like the dead inbetween bouts of...well, better left undescribed. Overshare? That is my middle name.

Anyway, day 12 of BD month. Let's hope it improves.

feeling a little...shlumpy.

BD month!

So, this is a thing that makes me ridiculously happy--Michael Rosenbaum is one of the friends that Jason Manns has on his Covers With Friends album. See me grinning! :D :D :D Does that mean that Michael hangs out with them from time to time? It would make my little CWRPSer heart gallop.

So far, not so good. A co-worker died Wednesday morning. Not just a co-worker, but a really neat, funny, feisty person. Like, her picture should be right next to any definition of the word, always. I went to the funeral. It was rough. There was a table set up with pictures, and there was one of her sitting on the back of a pony, dressed up like a little cowboy, chaps and hat and all. It was the perfect 1950s picture, a slice of life as it used to be. She looked so happy, with her little girl face. It was amazing how much that face never changed, and in every single picture, old or new, she had the same light in her eyes--a light that promised she was up to no good.

So, I post this here for me, to remind me that I haven't got all day to let folks know how much I love them.

Because this is birthday month, I plan to try and post every day. I'm not saying it's going to be interesting....

I think my laptop is heading off to the place all piece of crap good laptops go. More and more problems...*sigh* I think I'll start saving for a new one. That is if the Luddites I live with don't all throw shoes.

So, for this BD post, what shall I do? I know! I know! I'll share a picture of a dragonfly with you! )

finished posting East of the Sun, an old Smallville story, at AO3. I was surprised it got any attention at all, very pleased at the response. It's an ego-boost, I'll tell you. I'm thinking to start reposting Deal next. Most of these fics are at SSA onAO3, but I hate how crappy they look. It's nice to be able to clean them up a bit.

My next project is to finally, seriously, I'm not lying I swear finish PE. Finally! I've got over a bit of a roadblock I had with it, means changing the story somewhat from where I was originally headed but it works and I think it's better actually, go me. *waves little flag, flings confetti*

Batman Dean took a weird turn but I'm going to go with it. Also, might approach it from another angle as well. Hey, it's BDM, I can do what I want. *waggles butt*
roxy: (poproxy2)
I'm back from the Pit of Voles!! Now to strip my clothes off, fire up the coffee pot and try and turn Dean into Batman!! Well, first I'm going to put on other clothes because naked and hot coffee do not mix. Do not ask me how I know.
roxy: (WTF)
I just got back from my surprise birthday party! I KNOW!! I was all surprised and shit. Pictures to come. And by the way, Dean Winchester showed up at my birthday party, for real, yo.

You guys!!

Thank you so much, [livejournal.com profile] ctbn60 for the AMAZING icons! Thanks for all the goodness you gifted me this birthday month, you really helped to make it the best! ♥ ♥

There were so many lovely icons *points at SeriousDean* But this one, oh man!

I mean, does that say "roxy" or what? I know right? *snuggles up to icon*

I could watch a solid hour of Dean telling Cas, "We ganked those bitches once before; we can do it again." I swear, hottest Dean ever! The rewatch continues! The deleting thing isn't going so well. *shrugs*

And rewatch isn't the only thing that continues! BDay month, heck yeah! Today's installment brings another rec for one of my all-time fav writers, [livejournal.com profile] sonofabiscuit77, and her BB offering.

samdean roxy rec by bt_kady

1978 by sonofabiscuit77
Pairings: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC17
Word count: 34k
Warnings: British 1970's AU, expect characters' language and attitudes to reflect that time (homophobia, sexism, racism, class snobbery). Allusions to molestation and the old British boarding school practice of “fagging”. Jared is 17 and Jensen 18 in this fic, I've deliberately avoided using real-life members of their families.

Summary: England, 1978: a time of strikes, class warfare, power shortages and institutional homophobia. At an elite boarding school, scholarship student, Jensen Ackles, grocer's son and fly-half for the school's Rugby First XV, falls in love with fellow boarder, Jared Padalecki, stockbroker's son and aspiring artist. But the path of love never runs smooth, especially for two boys in 1970’s England with the world, and society, against them.

I expected this story to be amazing story and it was. The time and place feel so real, as do the people--and of course Jared and Jensen set so perfectly in it. They're so in character (the character I have for them in my head). The Js stories kind of mirrored each other in this fic in a very interesting way--heartbreaking, but very fitting. I warn you, once you start this story, you won't be able to stop.
(I've edited my comments, again--I kind of went real blabby on my comments this year but I was having such a good time reading! *G*)

On a side note, I like this little trend of not using actual RL family names. For me, it makes the fic more like a role that the Js are playing. I'm not especially bothered when folks use real names and sometimes it's the only way to go, it just makes it more fun for me when they don't. Oh yes, sorry, it's a totally shallow thing on my end.

Tune in for massive whining later on this evening. Bring raincoats and hankies...maybe tranquilizer darts. I know right? Can hardly wait! :D
