Requests

As much as I write for myself, I still like to please my readers as well. If you'd like to request a fic, please post a comment here to do so. That is also where my 100_prompts table is located. If you find a prompt that hasn't been used and would like a certain story to go along with it, let me know and I'll do my best to kick my muse into gear to hopefully help make it happen. Otherwise, all requests are welcome.

Hello my loverlies!

My friend ddagent is writing her dissertation on fanfiction, and she needs people to complete this survey. If you all could take the time to help her out, I'm sure it'd be really appreciated. It's super quick!

Under the cut is her post with all of the information along with the actual survey.

Just do it ;)Collapse )

I can't believe the year's already coming to a close. It's been awesome! It had plenty of downs, sure, but all of the good stuff outweighs it all. I hope everyone's had a good one too, including this recent holiday season.

I bring you this end of the year meme taken from hockeysaurus and thats_my_story because I'm bored, it's been a while since I've posted, and this should sum up the year quite nicely :P.

To the memeCollapse )

Comment to this post, and I will list five things I associate with you. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your LJ (or just add a reply back to me). Other people (including me) can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.


List from jessica_eliza

1. Grey's Anatomy
GA was my first real dive into fandom. Sure, I'd had shows that I loved to watch before, but I never took that leap into discussing it with others, reading fanfiction, making graphics, etc. I don't know what drove me to do so in the first place, but I'm so glad that I did. I met some of my closest friends and some other amazing people. A handful of them I still talk to after 5 years, and the others I may never speak to again. In the end, it was all worth it...even though I have now given up on the show because it's just way too ridiculous. GA Season 2 all the way!

2. Kate Walsh
This woman is amazeballs! I probably first saw her as Nikki on The Drew Carey Show so many years ago, but I first really noticed on Grey's Anatomy. She has great acting chops, great comedic chops. She seems like a really great person all around. Beautifully gorgeous, and she has a fragrance I'd actually want (and have)! Only thing that sucks about her being so mainstream now is that she's flocked some really crazy fangirls. Sorry, but I'm a bit elitest. Peeps who didn't love her in 2006 and earlier should not be calling her their 'wifey'...hell, no one should other than the person she's married to.

3. Addison Montgomery-Shepherd
I...could probably write an essay about Addison. There has never been a fictional character that I could find myself relating to more, despite never really experiencing the things that she did. I'm not a neonatal surgeon. I never cheated on my husband with his best friend. I'm not going to go into the shenanigans that happen in Private Practice because she isn't even the same character anymore. I really put it all up to Kate Walsh's amazing portrayal of this character. It was the small nuances, all the emotion behind her eyes. I just love Addison. She's flawed. She fought for love. She's pretty kickass in the OR. The list goes on and on. <3

4. Addison/Derek
Addek is my ultimate OTP. They're not just my OTP in the GA fandom; they're my one true pairing in all of time. They were so dysfunctional, and we all knew they were doomed from the start, but they were just so real. It wasn't fairytale love. There was no riding off into the sunset. They had a raw, rocky relationship that could have been fleshed out so much better if the writing didn't go to shit and if they had ever gotten a real chance at surviving. Loving Addek is how I found some of the loveliest women I now call my close friends. There were a lot of tears, there was A LOT of laughter, but like Addek, it was all very real and true to life. It was worth fighting for. Addek Summer 2006 forever!

5. Fan fiction!
I feel like I owe fanfic a lot. It allowed me to cope not only with what was happening in canon, but also with life. I could delve into the characters and explore their emotions while dealing with my own. Again, before 2006, I didn't know such a thing existed. Who knew there were so many passionate fans at the ready to fix the things the writers messed up or fill in the blanks :). Just wish that there were a) more good fic writers and b) some of the happy endings we got in fic would become canon.

So it's been a short while since I last posted. I just felt like you all deserved to know the end to my little story. I just haven't had any urge to write/rant anymore because I've simply stopped caring. We all know I write most when I'm fueled by emotion hehe.

I actually had started to write an entry the day after my last post. That day was kind of the climax of my dilemma. Josh and Jermey's dad (I no longer want to call him my father-in-law) sent me an extremely nasty message on Facebook. I had it all ready to post on here that day, but I don't feel like I need to...I guess validate myself any longer. It can easily be summed up to: He thinks I'm an insecure liar who's been out to get rid of Jermey from the start.

As you can imagine, I was fuming from this; started writing a letter in response on here too. Half way through, Jermey finally tried to talk to me in person and apologized. It was a bunch more bs, but whatever. It calmed me down, and I got my closure from him (although, I'll still never trust him). At that point, I put the LJ post away and simply stopped investing energy in their madness.

Let them hate me. I know I spoke the truth, my husband knows the truth and supports me, my sister-in-law is on my side...Everyone who matters gets it. If they want to live in ignorant bliss, then so be it. Maybe one day they'll see him for what he truly is, but it's oh so very doubtful.

Jermey went back to Glasgow to live with them on Sunday, Sep 4th. Josh paid for the plane ticket, as he pays for everything for those people. I cleaned the house top to bottom for 3 days straight last week. No more residual alcohol on the dining room and kitchen floor. No more leftover vomit in the bathrooms. Completely cleansed of all the bullshit.

Although I would love to delete Josh's parents from Facebook, I didn't because they are still my husband's parents. However, I did put them on a limited profile, so they won't see any new things that I post including statuses and photos. They can stare at all of my statuses that they hated so much for the rest of their miserable lives :P. Jermey, however, did delete me, which I find kind of ironic, but whatever. The less I have to deal with him, the better. I never liked seeing his bible quotes anyway when every informed person knows he's anything but pious.

It's been a week and a half now, and life has been peaceful and swell. Now I just need my husband to come home and everything will be perfect again. Currently, I'm just taking care of the pups, applying to a few jobs here and there. I uploaded my resume on Career Builder and I've already gotten two inquiries from insurance companies lol. Not exactly what I'm looking for, so we'll see how that goes. Just living a very calm life now.

Don't know when I'll post again...maybe my next life crisis :P. I just want to thank all of my wonderful friends on here and everywhere, new and old who helped me get through all of this, whether it was a simple comment on here or lots of discussion on MSN. You're all amazing, and I couldn't be more thankful to have such amazing friends across the country and the world.


The closest friends, the greatest support all held within my heart.

I want to participate in this season's round for seasonal_smut; however, I think I work better with requests rather than picking it myself. I have ideas for most of the prompts, but nothing that compels me so I figured maybe my wonderful f-list could help me out. If you want to pick a prompt and let me know where you kinda want it to go, that'd be great! I'll try my best to live up to what you want it to be. Some of the prompts were claimed yesterday, but the rules do state that there can be multiple stories using the same prompt (which defeats the purpose of claiming prompts, but I didn't make the rules). Please and thank you!

Addison/Derek
- Hotdog Thanksgiving
- First Christmas

- Christmas in LA
