I wish that when people leave you kudos at AO3, there was an option that you could send them a kudo for giving you kudos...or something way less complicated than that. :D

I got a comment today on an old SV story that made my eyes get all round and wide--hard to do because I'm a naturally squinty-eyed kind of person, so you can just imagine. It was a good comment, in fact, a great one, but it made me realize just how damn freaky the story was, lol! And now I know where the scene came from that's been floating in my head. I've been haunted by a scene from one of my own fics, and couldn't for the life of me remember which one! Is that a sign of creeping age, or does that happen to other people too? And if it doesn't just lie and nod.

My flu-shot arm hurts a little. Is that normal? I still feel salty from the ocean. Do you think that's all in my mind? So, what really happens if you fill your mouth with PopRocks and drink coke? Do you think folk faking sex for the movies sometimes actually have sex? I think they'd have to concentrate really hard on blocking stuff out--filming looks like a weird business to me. Plus, why are people not in porn vids are always so *quiet* when they're having sex?? All that discreet little gasping and moaning. Tchah! I like the neighborhood to know that Mr. R's got an excellent handle on the job.

This post is what is what life is like for Mr R. He gets these kind of questions every day, once or twice at least, for--gee, thirty-seven years. Plus he gets me staring intently into his eyes while he tries to figure out how to answer me. Sometimes--not very often because he's made of very strong stuff--he breaks and just starts laughing. I count those rare times as a major win.

This rambling, hard-to-understand-in-spots post is brought to you by insomnia. You're welcome!! :D

So, the month is winding down, and summer is too. I'm taking the time to finally *really* look at the [ 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!
roxy: (sun)
It's vacation time--no, no, better than that--it's *staycation* time, time to wrap my BB in its little shawl and kick it out the door! And I'm gonna read. I'm gonna guzzle coffee. I might go to the mall and wolfwhistle baby boys--scar them for life. Heck yeah, I'm a giver. I'm going to the bakery and buying all the pastries. Gonna sit on the porch and eat them and write barista Jensen and lonely-boy Jared in my mind. Scare the neighbors. Annoy the dog. Oh my god, and do some drawing, hokey smokes, forgot all about that!

I'm feeling good! Kiss my hindparts, Red Bulls-eye Satan--I'm out of you for a whole week!
roxy: (sun)
I'm super pissed off about that--I really enjoyed coming home from work on Wednesday and screaming, "GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS???? IT'S WINCHESTER WEDNESDAY!!!!"

I know the Fam will miss it as, really. They'll miss it.

I'm very nervous about tonight, like kind of nauseously nervous. I'm worried it won't be what I want, and then I'll have to wait until October to see if they make it better. I can't stand the thought that I have to wait that long for Show to come back, period. It's going to be a long hiatus, and I won't even have the fun of tin-hatting my way across the internets like I did last time because I discovered that it's not as much fun as I thought it was. Well, I have my summer art challenge to keep me busy, right?

I'm wishing us all luck, for tonight and for the coming season. X yer fingers and hopetagod the boys will be okay. ish. ;D

I was going to post about how while it's nice that everyone is happy about s11, it kind of irritates me too, but I read that post and decided to delete it because I already complained about stuff in my last post and I thought, "roxy, do you want to gain a reputation as a crabby old bitch who only posts to complain about shit?" and I thought, again to myself, probably not. I would rather be known as the happy, carefree spirit that I that laughing? Am I hearing laughing?

No, I use it for Christmas shopping, which is right around the corner.

I'm home again, still dazed...what a weekend! What an eye-opener!

I spent the best weekend with [ profile] blackrabbit42, [ profile] tifaching, and [ profile] firesign10, who are incredibly kind and just absolutely amazing women! Thanks you guys, for being so good to me! Thanks for keeping me from flying to bits, lol!!

This weekend was exciting, nerve-wracking, a little overwhelming but incredible! Guys, if you get a chance to go to a con, take it! even if you're terrified, take it! It's so worth it, and trust me, the folks around you will see you through! ;D

6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?
I prefer writing male characters. I identify more with the male characters than the female.

7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

Yes. Whitney. Not my fic, Caroline Baker's story about a high school romance between Clark and Whitney that opened my eyes right up, and made me fall in love with Whit. And made me realize that my OTP could be more than one couple. ;)

8 – Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

Oh, so many! I love writing OCs! And in order to make sure they're not Mary-Sues, I don't make them female and I don't name them roxy.

9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

For BtVS/Angel: Spike/Xander, Xander/Angel, Spike/Angel—not all posted
SV: Lex/Clark, Whit/Clark, Whit/Lex
SpN: Sam/Dean, Dean/OMC—pretty much that's it. :D

10 – Pairings – Have you ever gone outside your comfort zone and written a pairing you liked, but found you couldn't write, or a pairing you didn't like, and found you could?

The only time I went outside my comfort zone was when [ profile] legendarytobes handed me a pairing in a challenge she held. It was Lana, Lex, and I did it and it was hard—and I ended up liking it a lot. So, thanks for that! I think she was kind of pleased with me, after I stopped with the bitching and whining. :D :D :D

Hi There!

roxy: (writing!)
Remember when I said I was going to do that 30 day meme? And how I promptly forgot about it? I do have an excuse. I have this lingering intestinal thing that's kind of ugly...we won't go into detail. just...ew. and ow.

I've managed to drag myself off my...bed, let's say bed...and do five questions at once because no one's got time for 30 days of me blabbling. So here it is, the first 5!

Also, [ profile] fanspired --LOL!! Soooo much fun!! :D *koff*

1 – How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

I started reading BtVS fanfic—Angel/Spike, Spike/Xander…it made me want to write my version. I loved the Show so much, and I'm sure that if it was still on, I'd still be watching. The writers in that fandom back in the day--I swear, they were all fucking brilliant! In the beginning I read in a lot of fandoms, but Buffy was the one that made me feel the need to write. What pulled me in about Buffy? It was creepy but funny, my favorite flavor. It could make you cry at the same time it didn't take itself too seriously. I think that's the way life should be lived.

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.
The only fandom I write in now is SpN, more than likely the last fandom I'll write in. :)
I've written in BtVS, Smallville, SpN, I've written RPS featuring James Dean/Sal Mineo, a one-shot Beatles…a couple of Heroes ficlets, Batman, mostly SV crossovers and two Joker fics that I liked a lot but broke my brain to write.

3 – For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

BtVS: Angel, Xander, Spike. SV: Lex, Clark, Whitney, Wade, SpN: Sam, Dean, kind of obviously. The Smallville characters not as obviously--two of my characters had much less screen time than the show leads. And one of them in fact, was a one-shot guest star. Who turned up years later on SpN playing a bad guy and being very satisfying. Not, not Brady. ;D

4 – Do you have a "muse" character, that speaks to you more than others, or that tries to push their way in, even when the fic isn't about them? Who are they, and why did that character became your muse?

Whitney. Whitney pushed his way into almost every SV story I wrote, and in most of them he was supposed to only have a small cameo. Whitney was my muse because he made me look at Clark and Lex in different ways. I really, really enjoyed writing him. I miss him a lot. I've tried to write him into my SpN fic, but I just couldn't. On the other hand, I've had Clark turn up in a couple of SpN stories—actually, Tom Welling, the actor who played Clark Kent. If you guys liked Patrick in Lodi, then you liked Tom. *GGG*

5 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?

Let them go! I let them do what they want. Patrick from Lodi just kicked open the door and said, "Write about me, damn it!!" So I did. Whit of course, everywhere. Original characters, (or semi-original characters, like Patrick) sometimes take over a story and most of the time, the story is better for it, as far as I'm concerned. I *love* when folks write *GOOD* OCs into their stories. I think [ profile] dimeliora is the master at that. OC doesn't immediately mean Mary-Sue, you know. Heck yeah!! Point lost! Who cares!

I missed Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day, sort of. I wanted to send every writer I love a note, but that would have taken me waaaaaaaaay longer than it did to put together my "thank you for birthday wishes" post, which took me forever because I'm really slow and because so many people are wonderful. :)

So, Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day ).
roxy: (poppy2)
Please send some positive thoughts Mr R's way. His dad is nearing the end now, and my beloved needs support.

What's up, people? I have the day off from work and I'm supposed to be cleaning house in preparation for this weekend's celebration, a celebration of the day my child hit the planet. Yay!

She actually saw my LJ for the first time the other day--she wanted to see the merepeople. I gave her the link and told her, "Don't scroll up or down." Hah! Poor thing.

♥Can anyone explain to me what "div" means? I keep seeing it in stories and from context I'm guessing it means something like divine but where the hell did this word come from? It's an odd one to me. Maybe it's just the New Jersey coming out.

♥I'm wanting to do some official roxy recs, there have been a few stories I've read that are pretty damn amazing. There have been a few stories I've read that have been less than. It's been a really uneven BB year, I find. Still, it's great that the enthusiasm for the BB is still there. It makes me happy that w still care so much about those characters. And it's a great way to fill the time between seasons, right? I mean, besides compulsively watching the eps over and over again, not that I know anyone who would do such a thing. :)

♥Remember when I said I wasn't going to do another SamDeanOTP minibang...*koff* And I already know what I'm going to do for next year's BB. Unless I start posting it here. Which I shouldn't because I have that slavefic slowly chugging away. Yep.

♥So, I'm home and feeling babbly. Questions, anyone? Stuff you'd like to know about me? Stuff you want me to make up about me? Ya'll know me, I can go on about myself forevah!


heck yeah!
roxy: (heart hands)
These are my children. Look at these women. They are our pride and joy. They make our entire lives worth living. We point at them and say, "I fucked up in a lot places, but not here."

Our beautiful graduate. Our lovely daughters.

These women are our future, people. )

Would everyone be really pissed at me if that slave fic I dropped here ended up being happier in the long run? I'm just not sure I can end it so hopelessly if I work on it and it seems like it might be a little longer than I first imagined *koff*

roxy: (jensen starburst!)
I'm on a train! Right now! Boy, this is hot stuff for an old broad! It's like...MAAAAAH-JICK!!!

Right now I'm passing silos and little towns, so not so magic but still, cool.

I can't wait to get home and tell you all about it and to read all the BBs I actually haven't been able to read. Also to post comments on all the fic I've read on my kindle and not been able to comment on. When I settle in, there will be recs!

Bye from roxy...ON A TRAIN. (man, I wish like crazy some of you were here with me now--we'd have such fun! :D )
roxy: (sam reeeally?)
I sent a note to [ profile] sillie82 recently, because of an interesting comment in a post of mine. I thought I should share my wondering with you,'cause I'm nice like that.

The issue was warning for top/bottom. Now me, I don’t get why it matters. I like switching the best, maybe I'm just greedy. In years past, I would have really gotten steamed about being asked to warn for who tops or bottoms. Nowadays, I sort of get that it's not my judgment to make, and for some people, it's *very* important. I'm working like hell to be more open to other folks—so I'm going to try and remember to tag for that stuff.

A question to you all.

I get how you label Top Dean(or top whoever). That means of course, that Dean is fucking various characters, not being fucked. So, how do you label it if there's non-penetrative sex, but one is clearly the aggressor, for lack of a better word? Would the person instigating the sex be the top? Does it even apply in a situation like that?

What do you think? What tags would you like to see that folks don’t use enough? What tags should people stop using? I vote "this is crap I don’t even know". I do—NONCLICKY.

I'm so nervous!! I'm relatively unspoiled and I'm worried! Worried that Show is going to break my heart--also worried that they will so stupid up the season ender it will make me want to gut a man. Please don't piss me off, Show!

All in all, I've enjoyed the season. Sometimes, I didn't understand an ep until after, when it is explained to me, tank yew. I know a lot of people were hurt that Dean didn't keep the black eyes all season but you know, he sort of *was* Demon!Dean all season long. I'm not sold on how DARK Sam was supposed to have gotten. Sam just seemed normal levels of Winchester "Keepin' Secrets For Your Own Good(Not Like That's Not Going To Backfire Spectacularly On Us)." Loved that over the top concern though--way to make us forget that last season Dean was chopped liver to Sam.

Not really, no.

So, I've wandered over to the Love Meme and have left some love. I've just started though, so I'm only on page 1. So much love! :D

And speaking of love, thank you so much, you guys! I haven't responded to everyone yet, but I hope you all know just how much I appreciate your well wishes! Sam agrees with me.

come here hug sam
