If you friend me, please comment if you'd like to be friended in return, as my standard practice is to only friend people I've exchanged a comment conversation of some sort with. If you're happy to friend and see very few of my posts, go for it, but I won't be friending you back unless we've chatted!

I don't actually bite, nor am I as standoffish as it might appear, but I'm probably a sandwich short of a picnic, in case this affects your interest in my journal. I also have the world's worst memory, but I always reply to comments if it seems called for. Feel free to poke around what little is visible.

Oh, and all my fics are housed at [livejournal.com profile] haldoor_honey because that's the way I roll. They are open to the public for the most part. Feedback and followers there are always welcome. I don't usually friend back there, but that's only because I don't follow the flist attached to it. ;-)

Someone asked recently, so I decided I needed a reference post here.

So I think I can write fan fiction? )

I am so behind and trying desperately to catch up on things I owe. This is the last [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words weekend challenge reward that I owe from the last time I promised things... we won't even say how long ago that was. :-P

These are three icons from The Flash for [livejournal.com profile] helsinkibaby, who asked for Joe and Caitlin together if I could. Not great, but here's what I came up with:

    


Could not resist that last one when I saw it, being the Lego fan I am. ;-)

Crashing

Has anyone watched Crashing? It's a British comedy - 6 eps, and looks fun. It has a mix of good and bad reviews (mostly excellent ones on IMDb, I have to say), but I followed the Sam/Fred storyline on You Tube and I'm hooked! I hope they make more, and that it's as good!

Here's the trailer, for those who want to know more:



It's written by the woman who plays Lulu (long dark hair in video), and the premise is about a bunch of 20/30-somethings who are 'guardians' of a building to be demolished (a hospital in London) so they live in it for cheap until demo time, and they're all crashing into something as well as 'crashing' at the hospital.

Sam is very cute (the guy who played reporter Olly in Broadchurch shows off his comedy chops!!!), and his struggle with his feelings for his friend Fred are very amusing, as are all the happenings (even the slightly icky things) with the others. And you can follow the Sam/Fred story from here in six parts at YT, should that be enough for you. ;-)

I just heard that Glenn Frey died at the age of 67 from complications arising from rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and pneumonia.

As a huge Eagles fan I am saddened for yet another massive loss to the world of music. I was lucky enough to see the Eagles live in NZ in 1995, and while I missed them when they came here last year, I have been a lifelong fan and always will be.

My thoughts are with his family and friends. I leave the last words to Glenn, from the song his family posted as a tribute:

“It’s Your World Now”
Written by Glenn Frey and Jack Tempchin
From the Eagles’ Long Road Out of Eden album


A perfect day, the sun is sinkin’ low
As evening falls, the gentle breezes blow
The time we shared went by so fast
Just like a dream, we knew it couldn’t last
But I’d do it all again
If I could, somehow
But I must be leavin’ soon
It’s your world now
It’s your world now
My race is run
I’m moving on
Like the setting sun
No sad goodbyes
No tears allowed
You’ll be alright
It’s your world now
Even when we are apart
You’ll always be in my heart
When dark clouds appear in the sky
Remember true love never dies
But first a kiss, one glass of wine
Just one more dance while there’s still time
My one last wish: someday, you’ll see
How hard I tried and how much you meant to me
It’s your world now
Use well your time
Be part of something good
Leave something good behind
The curtain falls
I take my bow
That’s how it’s meant to be
It’s your world now
It’s your world now
It’s your world now

No, not Penny's boyfriend from LOST. the storm currently hitting parts of the UK.

I hope all my friends and their families over there are safe and not suffering anything horrific during Desmond's wild path across the countries there. Many warm hugs and cuddles from me, and stay safe, everyone.

I seem to be out of words lately, but I decided to make some icons for the flash challenge at [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words. The prompt was 'HALFWAY'.

This is what I came up with:

Dammit, now I can't get the last one to save properly... but there is also a blue one. I'll try again tomorrow and see if I can make it work. Hopefully it's showing now!

And now I've played with a different program for the creations for Week Two of August Rush; still not sure about the results, though some I'm happier with than others.

Once again I give you ten icons in The Flash fandom )

And onward to Week Three and perhaps I'll go to yet another program to see how I do with that! ;-)
haldoor: Kaige and I like to jump off bridges one after the other; not always in the same order (1MW-august rush)
A bit of a delay, but here are my first five days worth of icons for August Rush (all 'The Flash'). They're not all that good, but I probably used the wrong program. I'm gonna try a different one for the next week.

Under here )

I'll post the next five days soon.

[Error: unknown template qotd]A vampire. Mainly because I'd like to live longer in a young body, even if it means drinking blood. Plus it feels like there's more control over your faculties, and no nasty bodily changes going on - unlike turning into a wolf (the bones cracking alone creeps me out!) or becoming a mindless brain-eating zombie. Plus, if the mind-control/reading is included, that would be pretty awesome. :-):

Hey guys, if you write fanfic, check out this link for information about a site called ebooks-tree.com, that is scraping our fanfic from A03 and, by the looks of it, charging people to download it. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. While I'm happy to give away my fic at A03, I certainly did not authorise e-books to give away or sell my work.

The link above gives you advice on what to do to request they take your fic down from the site. A bunch of people, including published authors, have been told about this, and most of the people I know have emailed to complain and request their work is removed from this site.

I have seen names of some of you there - [livejournal.com profile] zelda_zee, [livejournal.com profile] gottalovev, and others, check it out and make sure you add your voice to the complaints.

I am behind on my target word count for the year and I am trying to get as many words counted tonight (my time) for [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words' total target of 15 million for the year, so I need your help!

If you would like to help me, leave your prompts here! Please make them 1-3 word prompts only (whole sentences/ideas tend to bring on far more than drabbles, and this is all about short fic today!), and you may suggest a fandom and/or pairing if you know the kind of things I write and want a specific fill, but feel free to just leave it open and general if you don't mind, as that will make it easier for me.

Go, now! As many prompts as I can fill with drabbles on up to comment fic-size short pieces before I hit the hay tonight is my aim, although I am at work right now and may not actually start until later this afternoon. THANK YOU!

Grrr!

Oh, poo! LJ is being a bitch. I can't post to [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words and I need to! This would be my post for the daily challenge:

I am made of fail. I did not do any words. I am now too tired to do words. I pass the Daily challenge on to any of the do-over people who need to make words. I'm sorry I can't find who you are as my LJ is making excuses for not behaving properly and I'm not even sure this will post properly, so I'm off to bed. Maybe I'll do better tomorrow too.

My positive meme continuation is not going well, so thankfully I did the five days anyway. I got nothing right now, because it's been a stupid evening.

Because apparently when I can't write, I make silly icons:

It's cool to see Peter Lenkov retweeting things like this on Twitter:

Love Don't Die from valleygirl07 on Vimeo.



Great Steve/Danny vid too! S4 clips as well as older stuff, and the song seems to suit it

I was supposed to be writing this weekend, but couldn't wrap my head around it. Instead I've spent a couple of hours making icons. I said in a previous post that I really needed a 'sleepy' icon, so I searched out some pics of people and animals sleeping and then cropped and played around with different parts of the images I found.

Under the cut are the results )

Seriously, could there be anything he'd like better: Camouflage Wallpaper.

I wonder if they do it in Navy blues?

A comm I know is recruiting new helpers. I haven't the time myself, but for any of you who may feel you have time and inclination, see this:



BTW, this is one of my favourite comms for grammar and such; they are awesomely helpful and have some excellent articles. Everyone who write stories should belong, IMHO.
