In Search of a Beta

Lo, it has happened again, for I have writ some more. And I am in desperate need of a beta. My muse and I beg of any and all willing to make themselves
available in this capacity. This particular chapterlet is small - about 1347 words as Word counts.

However... there is the slight promise of more to come, not to mention the utter backload of work I've long left unattended to over the past years.

We do beseech the Beta gods and goddesses. Someone heed our cry, please?

An Actual, Factual, Fic Post!!!

Stop the clocks, check your calendars... for surely the world is coming to an end.

Believe it or not, I am posting FIC! New fic! Well, at least dabbling in my Innocence Found/Reclamation Verse!
I've had it on my hard drive for a couple of years, lacking the confidence to bring it to the light of day, but here it is,
for what it's worth - hopefully will bring some smiles to those who read. And to those of you who realize I haven't actually
passed away for lack of posting.

It really helps if you read Innocence Found, and then Reclamation, or none of this will make any sense whatsoever. Just sayin'.

RevisitedCollapse )

Here It Comes!!!

I might be a negative presence on LJ these past couple of years, but I'm here, and always thinking about my friends. Can't let the day go by without making my heartfelt wishes to you all!

May you all be happy and healthy, and find the new year a whole lot better than the year before!

Another Turn of the Planet

Happiest of birthdays, sueworld2003! May the better health fairy fill your coffers for the upcoming year.

Until The End Of The Word

I'll start off with: I'm not leaving LJ. Been here too long and through too much to ever leave. You guys have helped keep me alive through some of the toughest times of my life, for which I'm more grateful than words can ever say.

That being said, I've finally opened a spikes_heart Dreamwidth account just in case the apocalypse comes and my beeper fails.

Please feel free to add me (letting me know who you are if your journal name has changed) and I'll add you back. All of my post have already been imported to the new journal. Just waiting for the comments to follow suite.

I might not be the world's most active poster, but I am definitely here and reading you all.


T'is the Passing of a Year Most Foul!

Not a very auspicious start to the new year. Will be home alone, too sick to spend the night with family. Is very,
very depressing.

Greetings of the Season

Happy, Merry and Healthy

To All My Friends and Family

In Need Of Help with HTML

**turns on the pleading kitty eyes**

Hello, out there. Once again, I'm looking for someone to help with the coding in my journal, simply_beloved. For years, the journal was properly coded, and when links were clicked for chapters, they showed proper formatting. Then one day, out of the blue, every single chapter was centered. I checked and rechecked, making sure I had my opening and closing tags in the right place, but no matter what I did, the damned text remained centered.

At least for me it's showing up that way. I would appreciate any number of you guys checking in to see how the formatting appears to you. And some kind of explanation as to why it's all screwy for me.

And if someone is kind enough to be able to help me fix the situation, I would be most grateful. I am gearing up to work on this long, long, long overdue epic, and would love to have the proper showcase for it all ready to view.

I appreciate any and all assistance.

Hoping to hear from y'all in the near future. Thanks so much in advance.


Desperately Seeking Beta

I know, I know. I'm totally beating an almost dead horse here, but... there's hope for
the old boy yet. I swore that I would eventually finish the story of William Matthew
Jamison Dowell, and I intend to keep that promise.

I need someone to reread what's been posted, to help me find characters who've been
neglected; who should be part of the closing narrative. I have at least one chapter written
that needs to be checked for tone.

Most importantly, I would love for someone to bounce ideas off of; to help me push forward.
There are probably less than a handful of chapters left to go. I can see the light at the
end of the tunnel... it's just that I feel like my legs have been cut off.

So this is a cry for help. Hopefully there is a wonderful soul out there who is as anxious
for the completion of Beloved as I am, and who's willing to work with a neurotic, procrastinating,
insecure author writer.

**whew** Didn't chicken out on posting this, as I have done for many months now. I've been here,
reading y'all's posts, just being abnormally silent.

Is This For Real???

Help, please. On Tumblr (yes, that bastion of all things true), folks have posted about some extras listed on Once Upon a Time's season 5 offering. The following text piqued my interest:

TALES FROM THE UNDERWORLD: A KNIGHT WITH CRUELLA – Set in the Underworld and featuring Cruella and an all-new ONCE character portrayed by a special, surprise actor (James Marsters). Cruella has been left behind in the Underworld at the end of the season, and we didn’t exactly learn her fate… until now.

Has anyone heard of this? Has anyone seen it? if it's true, can someone point me to an upload?

I'm fairly sure I'll be disappointed, but on the odd chance it's true, I had to ask.

P.S. I am a real person peeking out from under my rock, not a spambot. **grins**

It's that time of year again!

Even though my posting presence on LJ had dwindled to almost nothing, I have to wish my sweetie bear, just_sue, the happiest of birthdays. Love you, girl, and hope life is working ever in your favor. **smooches**


It is Spring, finally, despite what the temperatures have been showing us, and that means a new look for my positively too quiet LJ. I've got the background I want in place, along with a new banner (thanks to liliaeth) in place. I'm just not skilled enough to finagle with it to make it 'just so'. I also need to change the font color for headers, etc.

Help me, Obi Wan Friendobies. Email me at spikes_heart@yahoo.com if you're willing to spare a few moments to work with me, or do it for me (I ain't too proud to beg).

Muchas, muchas thanks in advance.

Can We Rest, Now?

On Friday, June 20th, the sweetest, warmest, most tender-hearted young woman I know lost her battle with ovarian cancer. This fucking disease cut short her life at the age of thirty-four. She leaves behind grieving parents, siblings, god-children, and scores of friends.

We'll miss you Nicole. You'll always be in our hearts.

Gone too soon, rest in peace, sweetheart.

AAARGH! The Dreaded Gym Class Earworm!!

There's a commercial out currently for the Apple iPhone 5s that gives me chills every time the music track kicks in. Being the kind, generous person that I am, I humbly offer to share the buggering earworm with you:

I hated gym class with the passion of a million fiery suns (not to mention the one piece gymsuits that had to be ironed or they marked you unprepared). Just hearing this song made me break out in sweat and hives. It was torture - using the voice of the man I adored as Professor Harold Hill to show just how clumsy and uncoordinated I was. Gym class, meet Clockwork Orange.

Thank goodness I can watch the musical but Go You Chicken Fat, Go still makes me that little bit nauseous. **shudders** Any fellow sympathizers out there who suffered as I did?

A Surprise Bit of Happiness for a Change

My elder son, the one I live with, sent me a little prezzie from Amazon.com today. "Because it's Tuesday," he said.

I happily add it (All ten movies) to the shelf to sit next to the Buffy set, and Beauty and the Beast set he's also bought for me, and the Angel set I bought for myself. I do believe I have a re-watch coming up soon.

Ah, my first fandom, my first character crush (Spock, of course) and my first slash OTP (Kirk/Spock).

It's nice to post something pleasant. I hope this trend continues. *smiles*

Hugs, Hugs, Hugs!

Thank you so much, oh anonymous sweetheart for my wonderful, much needed hug. You have no idea how much that means to me right now. **smooches**
I have the official title of the world's worst chronicle keeper ever! Best to try and get this out before the year ends.

Vague descriptions of medical procedures - enter at your own riskCollapse )

Today, I'm planning to spend time with family. A bunch of hours with the grandchildren are good for the soul, I always say. Even if I don't keep in touch as much as I want to, I'm always thinking of my LJ friends/family and checking out all you better posters daily.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas, or just some cool family time. Peace, loves.

Today's the Day

I'm off to have that biopsy today... with luck, I'll be back this evening with a small state of the me post. Wish me luck!
