My personal rules:

1) Books I've read before do not count.
2) I will review each book here in my journal.
3) Book recs are ALWAYS welcome!

Rec other people's fic!

I put A LOT of thought into this. I mean, there are absolutely tons of fic I could have picked to include in this post. I made a point, however, of trying not to include any of the ones I know everyone has read. Hope you enjoy if you choose to read any of them!

ANGEL: Fade To Black - Angel/Spike - PG13 - Set directly after Not Fade Away. lyrstzha wrote it.
It is . . . FUNNY. I love it. Seriously cannot stress how much joy reading this brought me. (In fact, all her fic is awesome. Master List)

VERONICA MARS: Solace by shealynn88 - Weevil/Veronica - PG.
This is warm and heartbreaking at the same time. Short, but emotionally charged. A very in-depth look at both Weevil and Veronica, and the things that define their characters.

BUFFY: The Long and Winding Road by desdemonaspace - Adult - Spike/Tara
This is one of the most well thought out, well written fics EVER. And it's beautiful.

ANGEL and BUFFY: Long Time Gone by YinDagger. Adult, Spike/Xander, various others.
Awesome future-fic. Beautifully done.

VERONICA MARS: Seven Year Itch, Veronica/Lamb, Adult, by madi_lover.
Funny and hot.

DOCTOR WHO: Bleep Encounter by wmr - Nine and Donna Noble. PG13-ish.
This is love. Seriously. Not a shipper fic. Just really good. And funny. Cute. Totally could have happened.

SOUTHERN VAMPIRE SERIES/TRUE BLOOD: Surprise - Sam/Sookie - Adult - by neotantrika
SO GOOD. So HOT. I love Sookie and Sam together, and this is just so believable.

Please comment with your favorite stories from Twisting the Hellmouth. Longer is always better. Complete? Fantastic, but not required.

If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?

A songwriter. The kind that actually ends up with their songs sung by famous people on the radio. The kind that wins Grammys. That would be cool.

What is something you do well?

I'm musical. I sing, alto now vs. soprano before, but I do sing. I also play the piano, clarinet, mandolin, and a bit of guitar.

I'm actually giving piano lessons to some of the girls in Gavin's class. They all go to church together, one of the Moms discovered I could play (my Mom called me fifteen minutes before the service to see if I could fill in for their sick pianist), they asked if I would teach their kids. Now if only I could get Gavin interested. He knows his scales, but he's more of a drum man.

1. My wonderful husband, Aric.
2. My INCREDIBLE Grandpa, Joe.
3. My Dad.
4. John, my older brother, forever missed.
5. My little man, Mr. Gavin.

More than one. *shrugs*

Okay. I have no capping ability at the moment, and REALLY want a Sam/Sookie header/icon set. There I go again rooting for the underdog. No fic in the future, I don't think, but I do want the layout.

Any help?

I have a new layout. Header and icon by querita.

Not used to all the white. Don't know how long it'll stay, as I tend to be drawn to darker colors, but the header is just so . . . cool. I'll try to restrain myself for at least a couple weeks. :)

Happy Weekend, folks! Hope it's a good one.

Where were you?

I am reposting what I wrote on September 11, 2006, for I cannot say it better than I did then.
