Any New Yorkers able to help me with a little location scouting? Google Earth is being a shitbag and I may start screaming if I have to look at it's stupid face anymore. I figured maybe I should just ask you all before I start ripping my flesh from my bones : )

Slight spoilers for the Xmas story )

Also, if you fancy beta reading with a specific eye for all things big and appley, that would be lovely.

*kisses* xxx
alexisjane: (a- horrified)

Okay, first off, this post has nothing to do with Penelope Pitstop. I just thought I'd make a post asking for help with something, and then her funny voice was in my head...hence the title.

Second. Googling images of Penelope Pitstop to use in this post for a little decoration was a BIG MISTAKE. Needless to say, my childhood is ruined : (

Thirdly...I just wanted to see if anyone fancied looking over my blurb for Book Four (Jebus) of the Alphas' Homestead thing. Book Two will be out soon and I wanted to put the blurb for B4 in the back, but it sounds funky to me. Not super attached to the title or the tagline...or any of it, frankly.

Bad Blurb Beneath... )

Also, I've tweaked the cover for Book Two...it now has 150% more nipple...which I hate but hopefully you will like.

Tweaked. Nipple. See what I did there. (That wasn't even on purpose : )

Okey Dokey! Definitely time for a cup of tea if I'm accidentally punning. Love your faces ♥
alexisjane: (a- huh?)
I really need to get started on my BB but unlike previous years, I haven't had anything specific in mind that I want to write. I have a few ideas, all things that need writing, but which to write!!

So as usual when I'm in a jam, I'm gonna let my better half make the decision...my better half being all y'all : )


[Poll #2039234]

These all need to be done at some point, so click away. I'm reluctant to include "Sequel to Space Alpacas" as I don't have an idea for that but yeah, I guess that's on the table too : ) xx

So, I'm doing the cover letter thing for the New Writers' Scheme thing, and I have to say what genre Stumble Forward falls into.

M/M Romance doesn't seem quite right to me. Yes, it's technically that but given the level of angst and heartbreak, do you think that I should say it's M/M Romantic Drama...or some other kind of thing?

And yes, I am overthinking this. How can you tell? : )

I have no idea what I'm doing : ( xx

ETA I will shut up about this eventually, I promise xx

*keeping fingers crossed that no more of my heroes shake off their mortal coil this week*

Two things!

1. Anyone got a couple of minutes to run their eyes over a 1k blog post today? I'm doing a guest post for someone and I just need a second pair of eyes to spot any major errors and to make sure I don't sound like a dick.

2. I haven't signed up for the spnj2bigbang yet. I'm really not sure if I should, as I have so much else to do, but then I was thinking I could use it to get down the sequel to I Stumble Forward...but I'm not sure whether people would be that bothered about reading that...opinions welcome, nay, encouraged.

Last week was a bust. I got nothing done and I'm trying not to be pissed at myself.
Lily's eye is no better. We're both getting a bit bored with eye ointment.
I've managed to not contract any illnesses for ten days...so I'll probably get something this week : )
My kids came for dinner and it was lovely.
I'm almost 99% sure that the noisy neighbors have moved out!!
Papayas are my new favourite thing.

That's it. That's everything xxx

I know I have some Destiel fans on my flist. I'm hoping some of you are on Facebook too.

My friend Catherine Lievens has just powered through Supernatural for the first time and loved it.

She's asking on FB for some Destiel fanfic recs, and I'd really love to be able to violently shake some sense into her point her in the right direction, but it's not my area.

So if you have a minute and a Facebook account and a page of Destiel recs or a good comm, please think about dropping her a link or two. She's lovely.

Thank you! <3 xx

OMG I just finished the last commission of the year, which means I am DONE! I have mailing to do but otherwise that's it! \0/

I'm feeling crazy positive about next year, health, writing and art-wise, so I just can't wait to clear the decks, do the festive thing and then get on with it!!

In the meantime : ) ...snaffled from everyone...

- Post a list of 10 of your favourite fandoms. (I don't think I have ten so here's...some)
- Have your friends list guess your favourite character(s) and pairing(s) from each fandom.

1. Supernatural - 8 characters, 2 pairings.
2. Teen Wolf - 6 characters, 1 pairing, 1 threesome
3. The Blacklist - 6 characters, 2 pairings.
4. Sherlock/Elementary (I like them both, shut up) - 6 characters, 1 pairing.
5. MCU - 7 characters, 2 pairings

Totally excited to go do some housework now!! : ) xxx

Can somebody have too much yarn? Yes. Yes they can.

I have a lot of yarn. Wool, acrylic, several balls, half balls...all different colors.

If you would like said yarn, or know someone who would, let me know and I'll post it off to you.

This is for the con-lovers out there...

Have the J's ever answered a question about what animal they would be, or would like to be?

Other than moose or squirrel. I tried googling it but I just keep coming up with gifs of Jensen saying how much he loves Jared...IDEK xxx

...I was just thinking about The Mousetrap, y'know the Agatha Christie play that's been running in the West End since the Norman Invasion. I went a few years ago and it was fab, except for the lingering worry that I spoiled the ending for the woman sitting behind me, by wildly throwing out theories during the interval, only to have one of them be right : /



At the end of the play, the audience is sworn to secrecy about the story, and it's so good I can't imagine why anyone would give it away...but then I was thinking...

If you wrote something that was basically The Mousetrap, do you think would they even bother to sue you for plagerism, as doing so would reveal the plot of the play that's been running on secrecy for more than 60 years?

Asking for a friend.
alexisjane: (i stumble forward)
So, I'm gearing up to edit I Stumble Forward into something more...manuscript-ish...just coz I always promised myself I would, and I'm at the point where I need to change the names to protect the innocent.

So, I've had some thoughts...not all of them good, but I figured I'd ask as I'm shit at this, and you guys are fricken awesome.

Anyway...I don't think this is spoilery if you think you might wanna read it...although you've had a year, goddammit! It's not War and Peace, people! Although it has been described as "harrowing" in places so it might be best if you haven't...*coughs*

I digress...

I'm so bad at this )

Anyway...any feedback or suggestions would be gratefully received : ) Ridicule is cool too : P xx

p.s. I was joking about the whole reading it thing...it's most definitely not everyone's cup of tea, so I'm not actually...y'know : ) xx

The crazy times are almost over!

Visitors leaving tomorrow and TWRBB to post, then I'm just back to the regular mad rush work stuff...which I can handle...for two weeks or so.

Then...well, we'll have to see... But I'm pretty sure that's the light at the end, not a train, if you catch my metaphor.

Just quickly though...so many huge and wonderful thanks to all the people reading and commenting on my bb! The response has been crazy positive so far so thank you so much for that if I haven't replied to your comment yet. I will...eventually : )


I'm up to do SMPC this week and I'm all out of fic ideas.
So if you have any prompts for a down and dirty, quick 2k Sam/Dean or J2 fic, let me have 'em, ladies! My muse is tired so I need stuff she can pick through til she falls in love.
I got something! Thank you for all the suggestions : )

I hope you're all okay. Can't wait to catch up with y'all soon!!! xxx
alexisjane: (a- huh?)
So last weekend I was at the family place and they have a TV. I don't have one and haven't for several years. I don't feel like I miss much, especially the commercial breaks...except I caught this ad and...well, I'm not sure what the hell is going on.

Can someone please explain this? Is there a vital piece of recent pop culture that I'm missing that would make it clear what's going on? I'm wholeheartedly in favour of alpacas but why the theme music from the popular 1970's children's drama, Grange Hill?


I know I'm easily confused but...I just don't get it : /

ETA Check out write_light's comment for a link to explanatory blather! : ) x
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
RL is kicking my ass. Just babysat for two hours and now all I want to do is sleep! But have to at least attempt some work today.

But anyway.

Press the buttons! Two polls and fic talk )

I know I should be replying to comments and I will...just need to draw a puppy first : ) Love your faces xxx
alexisjane: (Dot The i)

I'd like a few more questions before I start filling for the next post, so if anyone would like to ask anything...I miss my boys ♥ x

alexisjane: (Ass-hand)

Okay I don't have to post my [livejournal.com profile] smpc til next month but I have six, yes! SIX, fannish art deadlines to meet before then and I cannot be arsed to decide what to draw.

So...prompt me.

- it must be J2 or Sam/Dean
- must be NC-17 obviously
- don't mind who tops
- can be for a fic if you want

The only thing I won't draw is extreme underage. I prefer the boys to at least look 16.
And poop. No poop.

Throw some suggestions at me or maybe some ref pics, I might even do a poll so you can vote on the favorite! I love polls!!

In conclusion. Porn.

My dog can see me in a mirror.

She definitely can. In our last place, she'd sit and watch my reflection in the hall mirror when I was brushing my teeth every night, even though she could have easily come around the corner to sit with me. She makes eye contact and tilts her head when I/the reflection talks.

But then she never ever reacts to her own reflection. She must be able to see it but she never acknowledges it. That's weird, right? What does she think it is? I'm pretty sure only elephants and dolphins recognise themselves in a mirror, monkeys can learn to do it, I think maybe crows too (coz they are as smart as monkeys) but she surely can't know that the dog in the mirror is her, right? But she knows my reflection is me...but she's not freaked out about there being another dog...

This is the kinda thing I worry about.

And I'm not even high.

I think it's probably time for bed x

I still have a few gaps to fill if you want to ask me something! Calender is here ♥
