Bones

I'm alive!

Wow, it's been ages. For those who I don't talk with regularly I'm still here and alive. Been busy with live and substituting til the end of the year so it'll probably be a while before I'm on again. Fic is still going and hopefully will have some things to post soon-ish.

Caspian/Peter hug

Lemming time! (aka yes, a meme I got from elsewhere) :D

OK, because I'm a glutton for punishment I have snagged this meme from bjjones and nufaciel .

And yes...I'm totally expecting revenge...

Just a note, fandoms that I do not know well or at all I'll comment back and ask for another pairing.

Give me two characters, each from different fandoms (and can we keep it to fandoms I know something remotely about, please?), and I will write a snippet or ficlet about those two characters interacting in some way.

*sits back and waits*

WIP Meme


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!


Actually I'm glad I saw this meme, it let me go through and see so stories that had been pushed aside for the moment.  Some are done (or almost there), some are still very much WIP and some you're going to have to be patient and wait for them :D  But here is a little peek at what I've been working on over the past year.

1.  All Alexander Richard Huntley could recall from the past week was a lot of tears and sadness.

2.  "And you don't sleep with Aunt Evy?" Alex asked innocently causing Rick to sputter and choke on his drink.


3.  "You," he pointed to Alex, "got a tattoo!  And you," he pointed to Ardeth, "knew about it!" 

4.  "Come with me Major," John instructed.  They went to John's quarters and he motioned for Evan to sit down as he pulled out a bag and began to pack a few things in it.

5.  "How come whenever a woman is involved you lose all common sense?!"

6.  "Actually sir, I have something for you, special delivery from France," Evan said as he entered the room when John motioned him in.

7.  D'Artagnan smiled and gave in, "just a little bit longer," he said as Phillipe's eyes started to droop and he fell asleep.

8.  John got a small smile on his face and pulled Phillipe into his lap.

9.  "Sherman had better be setting Columbia on fire again for someone to be bothering us this time of the day," Warrick growled into the phone. 

10.  "Well, I see you've got money and sex covered, now all you need is drugs and you've got a wonderful scandal for the LVPD," John joked.

11.  "Well sweetheart," Alec drawled, causing the man with glasses and spiked hair beside her to glare.  "I've got more business out here than you and geek boy over there do."

12.  Caspian in turned smacked his mate in the back of the head just before Edmund came running over, yelling as he tackled Peter to the ground.


13.  "You made me a faun?!"
