milly_gal has threatened me with all kinds of violence if I didn't partake in this meme, so have at it, hunny buns : ) xx

Post if it’s okay for your followers to leave you a comment telling you the one thing they remember you for as a writer.
Is it a scene or a detail or a specific line?
Is it something like style or characterization?
Is it that one weird kink they never thought they’d be into, but oh my god wow self-discovery time?

IT'S THE WEEKEND!!


Starting this week, I'm giving myself the weekends off (except for Sunday promo, obviously) because for the last few months I've been working every day and I'm genuinely worried I'm going to burn out.

So, this weekend, I'm doing a meme!! ...well...[livejournal.com profile] milly_gal said I should do the meme, so I'm doing the meme : )

THIS IS THE MEME!!
(can you tell I have wine?)

Send in a character (or ship, I guess. Sam/Dean, J2, Sterek, my original fic) and a number from this list and I will write a headcanon based on the word.

Get your prompts here <3 xx )

Day Two of standing up all day. I'm tired and cranky and so full of Chinese food I might die.

Doing a meme because everything hurts and I'm too tired to take a shower just yet. Stolen from everyone : )


1. Are you named after someone?

After a character in a book my mum was reading when she was pregnant...though she can't remember what book... *sighs*


Many questions )
alexisjane: (a - really?)


That's me by the way^^^ : )

Three things!

1. I'm trying to post a bit more and that's going okay, but if you missed it, there's a new comm called [livejournal.com profile] amilliondays, set up in response to the shit-fest that is 2016, and inspired by the 100 Days of Happiness meme that's going around. People have been cross posting their happy thoughts there, but just to be awkward, I've just been posting random things that have made me smile. I could cross post to here but...nah. Come on over and share the love yourselves!

ii Tomorrow I'm been asked to do some sort of Facebook author chat event thingy to help with someone's book launch...I've no idea what the fuck is going on as usual.
Anyway, I have to turn up and talk about stuff, and do a giveaway, apparently?
I figured that I could giveaway a paperback copy of Home Is Where You Are as they're available now with some other swag type stuff, but I have to ask a question for people to win it. I've no clue what sort of thing to ask so if y'all have any bright ideas, prompt me bitches.
I'll drop a post here tomorrow when it's on so you can pop by if the mood takes you : )

Three. I'm up for SMPC on Sunday. Any requests?

My writing mojo is weak right now so situational prompts using the J's from Sunday Maybe Monday, Gazes Into You, Stumble Forward, Dot the 'i', or Teenchesters would be lovely. Feel free to suggest anything you like. I might not use it but it might get some idea growing in my head. If there's room...otherwise it'll be manips again : )

Hope y'all are doing okay. Hang in there, peeps ♥
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
Waiting for the dog to get home from her walk...

1. Do you like blue cheese? Yes. Especially in a sauce with broccoli and mashed potato.
2. Have you ever smoked? Like a chimney. Not now though.
3. Do you own a gun? No.
4. What is your favourite flavour? Depends on the context.
5. Do you get nervous before Doctor visits? Not really.
6. What do you think of hot dogs?

Random Questions... )

Dog's home! That was good timing : ) xx

Got tagged by a couple of people! Thank you, Darlings : )

7 lines from the 7th page of your WIP and then nominate 7 other writers to do the same.

The sky was dark, raven black, making her almost invisible in the seat next to him, her dark hair and dark jacket absorbed by the night, only hinted at where the moonlight glanced over her features. )

Is there anyone that hasn't been tagged? : / Some names at random...

So I'm an addict. If I wake up in the night I check my messages. [livejournal.com profile] wings128 asked for J2 collegeAU for the ship meme thing. That was two hours ago. It's 5 am. I couldn't go back to sleep til I got this down.

Warnings - injury, mentions of OC death, schmoop, rimming, til the bitter end, unbeta'd, happiness, unrealistic portrayal of the American University system.

1300ish words

ETA - I'm thinking of expanding this but I'd like to keep the same format, so if you want to ask more questions in the comments, that would be cool ♥

ETA...again - There are more questions and fills in the comments but heads up for character death (after a very long happy life, but still. Made me weepy) Happy questions welcome...yeah, I'm looking at you [livejournal.com profile] cerului! : P

Ship Meme

alexisjane: (red - Jen and cillian)
As with all the best things, I'm stealing this from [livejournal.com 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

It's 3am. I'm eating ice cream. Why not.

Stolen from everyone xx


1. How old will you be in 3 birthdays?

Ummm...45...I think. I lose track of how old I am terrifyingly easily.

2. Do you think you'll be married by then?

Haha, well I'd say it's unlikely but I would like to be married again under the right circumstances.

Moar.... )

When you see this, share 3 random lines from 3 WIPs

~•~

When he got into the car he slammed the door shut harder than necessary, the sound echoing around the parking garage like a gunshot. He was lying to Jensen.

~•~

Chris didn't feel the need to segueway into anything when he put Jensen's coffee on the table. "Dispatch got a nine-one-one call about 3am." He threw a bag of chips down, and scowled when Jensen raised an eyebrow at them. "You look like you might pass out. Just fucking eat something."

~•~

It had been years since he had been awakened by Will screaming out in the night - having to hold him, calm him, or ending up sleeping next to him the nights there was no calming him - but he was pretty sure that it was because Will had learned to be quiet, not because the nightmares had stopped.

31st Dec: [livejournal.com profile] big_heart_june - got any special plans?


Well, last year I had the best time because I spent it with you all! There was booze and silliness and it was just wonderful being with everyone despite that we were all in different timezones, so that was lovely.

I've always kinda hate New Year (it make me maudlin also see video) but I have to say here, wandering down to the beach at midnight, with everyone wrapped up warm, sitting around campfires or wandering about wishing each other Happy New Year, and then setting off fireworks at midnight, that you can see happening for miles around the coastline...that's really nice. Not dog-friendly so I've had to pass the last three years but, yeah, really nice.

This year though I fear I maybe boozeless, plus feeling super tired all the time right now so my plan is to stay up as long as I can but I expect I shall lame it and fall asleep far too soon.

But hey : ) xx


alexisjane: (S+D library)
30th Dec: astarloa - A scene from a book or film that's stuck with you - for good or for bad.

Oooo, I knew this one straight away : )

Excerpt from chapter 38 of "The Stand" by Stephen King. Warning under the cut )

No fuss, no muss, no fancy words or clever talk. Just pure unadulterated storytelling that's haunted me for the last 25 years. Just perfect x
alexisjane: (cowboy)
29th Dec: fufaraw - If you could have a whole day to do whatever you want--and adequate time before to plan it, what would it be?

Oh god...I actually have no idea.

Um...I guess waking up somewhere hot, near a beach. Getting up nice and early and taking a swim (in a pool, not the sea coz eww...no fishy touching), taking a walk on the beach with the dog to dry off, having a nice relaxing breakfast in the sun, spending the morning walking and exploring a forest or somewhere architecturally interesting, having a nice lunch, spending the afternoon reading and swimming, spending the evening drinking and playing pool and then taking a walk on the beach in the warm night air...

...all in the company of someone totally hot so we could have sex at every opportunity...obviously : ) x
alexisjane: (a - electric)
27th Dec: brightly_lit - How do you organize your day/what's a typical day look like?


Ugh.
Oh, for a personal assistant... )
