The “Dream Team” Contest

meridiean:

MsBuffy has an awesome idea: get together 10 fic writers to make up a “Dream Team” to REWRITE this fiasco of a True Blood season. Your mission, should you choose to accept it? Go to her site and list the 10 fic writers you’d love to see doing this rewrite! This is an awesome idea, and of course there are more details about this on her site. :D
(Sadly I have to ask to be excluded, though, since I wouldn’t have the time to do it the justice it deserves even though it’d be SO much fun. However, thank you to infinity and back if you WERE thinking of me!)

The “Dream Team” True Blood Season 7 Writer Replacement Contest

We all have our favorite writers, and wouldn’t it awesome to have the “Team” of our choosing write the last season of True Blood so we all get the ending WE want? The contest asks you, the readers, to choose from all the FF writers whom you see as your “Dream Team?” Choose 10 writers, one for the Head Writer & 5 betas. Beginning today, August 19, 2014, and ending August 28, 2014, submit your choices to my blog. I’ll tally up the votes and then we’ll have our “Dream Team.” Favorite writers from FF.net. WordPress, LiveJournal, and any other SVM/TB site are welcomed.The Head Writer will assign an episode to each writer as well as one of her own to write. I don’t want to make this long & drawn out for the writers; I know they’ve got some…

Crossover Interview: Cuinawen

meridiean:

This lady with the unpronounceable name (well, unpronounceable to me since my brain can’t figure out how’n hell to “say” it…) is an AWESOME writer. She has a true gift with words, and you end up reading her story not because you like the characters, but because you adore how SHE PRESENTS the characters. Srsly. Check out her works! NOW! :D

Hello all! Long time no “see.” I’m happy to get back into the swing of things after my little hiatus with an interview from the one and only Cuinawen. To be truthful, I completely adore her writing style as she has a talent for writing highly intense/emotional situations with an understated ease that packs a wonderful punch, leaving you begging for more. While only recently breaking out into new pairings, her standard crossover couple is Bella and Kol and well… I’ll just let her fill you in on it all :)

Without further ado, please meet Cuinawen

Valentine’s Night, Chapter 8, is up! (Yes, really…)

*peeps around corner* 

Oops…you thought I’d forgotten this little fic, didn’t you…

Sorry????? 

(*ducks flying rotten vegetation*)

I suspect that I just haven’t been wanting to finish it, ya know?  This Eric and Sookie are near and dear to my heart, and maybe I just didn’t (don’t) want to let them go yet.

I dunno.

Either way, here’s Chapter 8, aka:  Epilogue, Part 1:

Eric in a tux1

I hope you enjoy!  :D

Eric Northman: After the Show, Chapter 3, is now up!

I had thought about holding this chapter back to post on Sunday as a brain-mint for that night’s True Suck episode, but…nah. 

Here.

I’m tired of messing with it.

(I wanna go cruisin’ down I20 w/ Eric to see Godric, dammit…late night, top down, music up, hair blowin’ in the night air breeze…) – (insert totally excusable pout here)

Eric &amp; Sookie Contest

The first time I saw this picture, I thought it was a great picture to inspire a contest because we all know that True Blood is going to fuck us over and not give us the HEA that we all want for Sookie and Eric.  So here I am starting my own contest. See below for the rules.

Rules for all contests:

1. All stories must be anonymous. Anyone found telling what they wrote will be disqualified from winning.

2. No posting on your own site until the contest is done and the voting is over.

3. Must be at least 500 words. Past that, it’s up to you. It can be a new one shot or the start of a multi-chapter story, but let me know what you plan.

4. All stories must end with a happy ending for Eric and Sookie.

5. If explicit, you need to warn people in…

Either way, enjoy!

So… Here is my two cents

meridiean:

As you may have heard, the so-called “writer” Alexandra Anthony stole our fellow fic-writer ficlit78’s and published it for profit. Many of us have left various and assorted ‘reviews’ regarding this thievery on Amazon.com. I’m reblogging Kittyinaz’s post, and to keep from flooding your inbox, I’m attaching mine to this “pre-blog commentary”:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I’m absolutely flabbergasted! How in the world could someone steal someone else’s work and publish it as their own? Inevitably SOME ideas will just happen to coincide with others, but to lift whole, complete passages? That’s just…thievery, pure and plain. An apology just won’t cut it, I’m afraid. We fic writers (I’m Mer, btw) work our collective and individual butts off to create, write, proof and publish something worthy of not only our time but of our readers, too. We stay up late, get up early, buy many different thesauruses (well, I did…), and are absolutely prepared to shed blood, sweat, and tears to crank out something worth reading.

We do not do this for for some asinine, two-bit fake “writer” to come along and steal our works.

I would like to believe that this extraordinarily stupid and crass thievery by this Anthony person was beneath them, but I am having a very hard time believing this to be true. Bluntly, the kind of person who would do this is incomprehensible to me. I certainly hope they’re not my neighbor because I have to wonder if they’d steal gas out of my cars, too!

No, this person needs to not ONLY immediately and permanently halt the sale of ANY of “her” books, but she also needs to voluntarily forward to Heather any earnings she might have gained as well. Her abject and provable plagiarism automatically negates any contracts she might have made on these works which implies that even more prosecution should come her way. I highly suggest that Heather contact an attorney and pursue this case. Theft of ideas is a very serious, very harmful, very HEARTBREAKING violation of not only rights, but of heart, soul, blood, sweat, tears, and the joy of creating one’s own works.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Feel free to go to Amazon.com and leave your own thoughts regarding this bullshit. Reviews left on her books have been magically disappearing, so many of us have turned to this link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/forum/cd/discussion.html/ref=ntt_mus_ep_cd_tft_tp?ie=UTF8&cdForum=Fx291J0WQMW3I22&cdThread=Tx2GEAOMLBH54N0

Stealing another’s work is wrong.  There are even laws against it amazingly enough.  to be frank, how would you like to build a house from the ground up, spilling your blood into the dirt, your tears into the foundation and so forth.  Only when it is done, you are ready to move in and then someone pushes you out of the way saying it was sold to you by someone you didn’t even know?  Pissed wouldn’t you be?  Going to get your rights and showing you own something.  Wanting if nothing else the profit someone made on your stuff??

So how is someone’s time and sweat, sleepness nights and the burning of your eyes as you type your story up.  The time you poured into making a…

Just a little self-promotion/I’m bored and it’s Tuesday

Hey, at least I’m honest…

Did you have a chance to read Kittyinaz’s TB/SVM interview of my lovely self for The Non-Canon Awards site?  If not, here

Srsly, though, not only do I love the questions she came up with (she’s interviewing and reviewing other writers too!!!), but I *also* wanted to promote her involvement with The (awesome) Non-Canon Awards site (which is also running a Twisted Fairy Tale contest, too!).

Plus I’m bored. 

Go read!  Then go write!!  :D

Plagiarism for Profit

Plagiarizers have struck again – this time on ficlit78, and this time FOR PROFIT:

Originally posted on ficlit78:

To my dearest virtual friends…

I’m so angry right now that I can barely write. Two weeks ago, a reader informed me that an author over in Vampire Diaries had lifted some of my work from Pretty Kitty and rewritten it into their own (horrible) story. I messaged and confronted them, and the work was promptly taken down.

It got me thinking…how often is my work plagiarized? So I Googled a few lines of my stuff, just to see what would come up… and I found something that made me sick.

Someone named Alexandra Anthony is SELLING my work in her own books called The Vampire Destiny series. You can buy them on Amazon and B&N, for fuck’s sake. I’ve written to the author directly through Facebook and told her to delete my work from her stuff before I contact Amazon and B&N, but honestly, the stuff is already out…

Sookie’s still takin’ charge, Chapter 5

Before I get to the chapter link, I’d just like to take a moment to remember and observe the passing of one of our own:  Princess Brigant.  Her cousin, Asgardian Angel, posted on her ff account that Princess Brigant had passed on from illness several weeks prior.  Her story “What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?” was a favorite of mine.

Sookie Takes Charge, Chapter 3, is up!

Caution:  This chapter contains lots of foul language, so if you don’t like that sort of thing, then why are you reading MY works?  Srsly, though, Sookie is…pissed, so expect LOTS of cursing. 

Also, actually highly unusual for me, this chapter contains quite a few pics.  I don’t normally put a bunch of pics in my chapters because they can potentially slow down device/computer speeds and because they tend to be distracting to readers (well, to me, lol), but I figured that with as many Eric-lovers as we have amongst us (myself included), I should show exactly WHY Sookie is so incredibly pissed off at Eric (to save my ass from your pitchforks) so readers can see very clearly where Sookie’s coming from in this story.

A little reassurance before the show:  Yes, this *IS* going to have an E/S HEA, so no fears or pitchforks!  Enjoy!

Dreamsicle Cupcakes

Who wants to make me these cupcakes??? The link to the recipe is at the bottom of her post, and those cupcakes look FANTASTIC!!

Originally posted on The Queen of All That is Delicious:

One of my favourite childhood memories is hearing the music of the Ice Cream truck on hot summer afternoons.  I always looked forward to getting my daily Dreamsicle to cool off from a day of playing outdoors in the Texas heat.  Now that I live in a small village in Quebec, we don’t get an Ice Cream truck coming by the house every day so I don’t often get a chance to get a Dreamsicle.  My darling daughter secretly began developing a cake recipe several years ago as a surprise for my birthday and it was a huge hit!  Over the years, she has refined the original and now we usually make cupcakes as opposed to a cake, but this recipe will do either and the results are spectacular.  The cake has the delicious orange flavour and the frosting adds that perfect complement of vanilla, absolute perfection.

Review for Fly me to the Moon & Other stories by Meridian

Another and, sadly, the last set of reviews from Kittyinaz with The Non-Canon Awards of my stories. This time she focuses on ‘the shorts’ – 4 short stories, 3 of which are slowly expanding (Fly Me to the Moon, To Dream Again, and True Suck) and one I’ve been offered cold, hard cash to NOT expand: Slippy Slappy Seal Sex… *evil giggle* THANK YOU WENDY!!!
