Just wanted to leave a quick note to say thanks so much to everyone who came to the release party thingy last night. It ended up being loads of fun! : )

Also, I'm leaving the giveaway post up on my blog until 9pm BST tonight. So, if you fancy winning a paperback copy of "Home...", just pop over and leave a comment so I can put your name in the hat** : ) xxx

**There won't be an actual hat...just so you know : ) xx

So, I just found out my short story will be included in the Valentines Anthology from Love Lane Books next month. Luckily, I was lying down already. I'm fricken excited but also kinda having an unexpected "Aw shit...I guess that means I have to work at this thing now" moment.

But in other, not unrelated news, a complete stranger – not a fangirl or RL friend or anyone who gives two shits about how I feel – read my Halloween story and really liked it! I made a complete stranger cry and feel sad \0/ Go me! So that's taking the edge off my burgeoning panic about this other thing.

Already thinking about The Further Adventures of Daniel and Elliot.

Maybe something for Easter.

*checks schedule*

alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
My lame-ass list of December reads is on my blog. I hardly read anything last month so it's super short - sorry. I feel like I'm letting the side down.

And one of them's a re-read. But it was Alexis Hall and it's awesome!

Anyway -

Feel free to leave any recs in the comments xx

So, as you may or may not know, my inbox is generally a mess. Hundreds and hundreds of comments and messages. The only person that is annoyed by this more than me is [ profile] somersault_j : )

In fact, she was so annoyed by it that she threatened that should I ever get it down to zero, she would write the Big Bang story that we have been talking about for the last two years.


In a effort to start the new year afresh, as a gift to my Darling Somer, who is one of the best, most pervert people I know, and as a gift to the rest of us once the Big Bang season comes around ; )...I present to empty inbox.

I'm going to spend the next couple of weeks scrolling back through my posts to try to catch any comments that need replies that I've missed but the inbox is technically and officially empty...

*except I just heard a notification bong...I bet you anything that's Milly!! : )

...and if you have sent me a question that I haven't answered, please do message me again. One of the reasons I decided to do this was I noticed comments coming in, but the number on my inbox staying the same, so it has been deleting messages that I was keeping to reply to.

I'm determined to keep on top of this in the coming year, and I know Somer will do her best to keep me in line. She has ways and means.

It's beautiful : )

Anyway. Love your faces!!!

I've been tempted, I admit it, but I work long at hard at avoiding doing this - it does probably take more effort than all the plotting and porning combined to avoid it - which is why it's probably a pet peeve of mine.

I don't actually know many writers that do this in or out of fanfic. But if you're tempted, just...please for the love of this...

Very proud of Sean Conroy becoming the first openly gay professional baseball player. It shouldn't have to be such a big deal and now hopefully now, because of his willingness to take the backlash, it means we're getting closer to the day it won't have to be.

But why, oh why, did he have to be a pitcher?

I honestly thought I was going to have an aneurysm, I've been laughing so hard! The picture of him shaking hands with the catcher just...I can't stop, I just can't!

No more Sterek baseball slash fic for me. I'm a horrible person.

alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
So, the epic second (third?) draft of the BB begins, and in an effort to break away from the  "He said. He said" thing, I'm making myself a crib sheet (or twelve) of words to use instead of, or in addition to 'said', so it reads a bit better.

I've taken suggestions from about five different sources and have amalamated them into a giant, vaguely alphabetical list. I'm going to try to wrangle it into something more usable at some point but I thought I'd leave it here just in case anyone else might find it useful.

If you spot any duplicates or omissions, do please let me know.

Gonna try and get some actual work done now : )

Miss your faces ♥

Dearest Big Bang Author

I tried to resist you, but the lure of polyamorous J3 and J2M just proved too much.

Come make yourself known! There will be snuggling and cookies...maybe even art and stuff ♥

Title: Life Is
Pairing: Jared/Jensen/Misha
Rating: NC-17
Life is what happens while you're making other plans. They've got it all figured out. Their life, their house, their mortgage, 'til death do us part – until that's what actually happens. It's way too soon when Jeff dies and leaves Jensen and Jared to sort out what they are without him. And then there's that guy at the funeral home with the sympathetic blue eyes who's the first and only one to get what it means to lose someone in a polyamorous relationship.

I'm so excited! I know I shouldn't be but...!!


I did art for [ profile] twreversebang

There. I said it! Post goes up today, claims are Saturday : )

I'm really excited about it! Also nervous, coz not really my fandom and I'm not sure about one bit of my drawing...but still!

Excited : ) xx
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)

I don't know how you guys feel about conceptual art or the actor in question. I definitely know more about the first one than the latter.

Anyway, Shia Labeouf is doing a collaboration with some folk and he's live streaming his heartbeat for a week.

Sounds like pile of wank? Maybe, but when you see and hear his heart beating on the screen, it's actually quite strange. Intimate.

I like it. But then I would : )

Just wanted to quickly rec this article. I saw something about it on Upworthy the other day but didn't have a chance to read it.

If there's not a fic/book/movie in this then I give up...

Basically, this little girl feeds the crows in her garden for so long...they start bringing her gifts in return. The best part is how she treasures these things, hoarding bits of broken jewellery and pieces of colored glass like they are the most precious things in the world. Christ, it's so lovely!

Anyway, I thought y'all might like it : ) esp. [ profile] casey28 Crows are the best! ♥

As with all the best things, I'm stealing this from [ profile] wings128 : )

If you're not sure which shows I watch you can check my interests on my profile, and of course rlbivob is always allowed. If you want to pick a Wincest flavour (ie. Teenchesters, or whatnot) that's cool too : )

Comment with a Ship and I'll tell you...

who holds the umbrella when it rains
who is the grumpiest in the morning
who worries more when the other is sick/hurt
who plays pranks on the other
who is always the first to suggest cuddling on the sofa
who insists on creating nicknames for the other
who drools on the other when they’re asleep
who says ‘I love you’ first

If you're not watching Bob's Burgers, you should.
It's very funny and the writing is just excellent.
Oh god, and the voices...: )

That's it.

Ah well, back to the drawing board.

No, really. I have an actual drawing board...for drawing.
