Anyone want some STC? Ch. 20 is up! (Ok, that might have sounded wrong…)

So, yeah, STC Ch. 20 is up!  Enjoy!!

(Ignore the crappy banner below.  love playing around making them…I suck at it, but that’s irrelevant, right?  I mean, I know for a fact that I could ask the amazingly talented Gyllene to make me any sort of banner or button and she would gladly do it, but she’s kind of busy right now…I hear there’s an update to a certain story in the works… #nopressure…#much…)

The Moon, Ch. 26, is up! (Yes!)

First I want to apologize for not replying (yet, gotta see how my time goes) to your lovely, delicious, fantastic comments left on the last chapter of Moon.  I adore your comments – I really do, and the ones from last chapter have been a joy to read.  It’s fascinating how a single chapter (or even portion of a chapter) can be interpreted in so many different ways and how each angle is usually right in its own way.   (Sometimes there IS no right answer; other times ALL the answers are right.)

Free time, however, isn’t something I have a lot of and so I chose to go ahead and get this chapter out to y’all (while Eric was still willing to chat and everything…always good, that).  Plus it appears my area is possibly in for a visit from a hurricane potentially in the next few days maybe.  Every 10 minutes the forecast is something different, so who the fuck knows. 

Either way, here’s Ch. 26 of The Moon.  I hope you enjoy it and don’t murder me too  hard.  That’s a great way to get no more chapters…plus I’d be all crying and I don’t cry pretty…

It’s another TWO-FER: ANDRE and THE MOON!

Cause I love y’all and stuff.  How do ya like me now??  *blows invisible dust off nails then sips coffee with graceful élan cause I can*


Ok, first up is Andre (cause he finally got off his pouty if really cute ass and started with the talking again):

Oh My Andre

And now…srsly, cause I adore y’all:

The Viking Calendar


This is very interesting and may be of good use to WRITERS, too:

Originally posted on ThorNews:

Runic CalendarWorm’s Norwegian runic calendar described in his book Fasti Danici dating back to 1643. The drawing only shows the winter season lasting from 14 October to 13 April. The summer season on the other side of the bone from a whale or big fish was never copied, and both the pendant and the calendar have unfortunately been lost.

Although contemporary Scandinavian sources for the Viking Age are few, there are indications that the Vikings probably divided the year into moon phases and only two seasons: Summer and winter.

The Vikings did not use exact years to date events, a so-called absolute chronology. Instead, they used a relative chronology with reference to the number of years after important events. One could for example date the year by saying “five winters after the Battle of Svolder”.

As far as we know, the Icelander Ari “the Wise” Þorgilsson was the first who in…

Moon Followers – Guess What? Ch. 24 is up!

I like you – I really like you!  I must…cause here’s the next chapter already (like I would make y’all wait for it…).  YES – CHAPTER 24 of The Moon IS UP! 

What it is not:  huge, long, filled with death/sex/angst or dealing with Sevilla
What it is:  surprising, I think, and definitely informativeish



Sadly I am NOT one of those awesome people who has chapters and chapters already pre-written just waiting for that final go-over before posting.  Hell no – that would be too damn simple.   I’ll have the plot bits figured out before I start writing (except for the little things – they can appear as they want), but pre-writing?  *pfft*  I am not, and probably will never be, that freakin’ organized.  I’m definitely a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of lady which means that in general you get chapters less than a day, normally, after I write them.  I don’t want you guys to have to wait to get your dainty little  paws on a new chapter so I’d never withhold them after I feel they’re finished.  You get them hot off the virtual press.

The next WIPs demanding attention in the rotation (that I at least try to stick to) will be STC and EN: ATS, muse willing, but I admit that I’m hoping Andre gets off his pout in the meantime so I can rescue freakin’ Emma and freakin’ Sookie from the freakin’ assholes who freakin’ stole their fine selves.  (Can you tell I’m getting a bit peeved with Mr. Andre and his Pout?)

Anyway, it’s short, but I hope you enjoy.  If you haven’t read the previous chapter yet, read it first.

aThe Moon banner

The Moon, Ch. 23, is up!

Sorry it’s been a little while (and also sorries for the lack of Andre update in the rotation, too, but he’s still being a bit of a bastard atm). 

I do my best (read: easiest) writing between midnight and, say, 5 am, which would be fine but the (ugh) outside world has this odd idea that people need to be ACTIVE and AWAKE and FUNCTIONING during those annoying daylight hours, and there are times when even *I* have to pretend to be a normally functioning human.  Yeah, it sucks. And it bites into my preferred writing time.  Which also sucks.

Ugh, real life can be real annoying.  What’s up with that, anyway??

But yeah, here!  Enjoy!

aThe Moon banner

Decisions, Ch. 31, is up!

As you might can tell by how I skipped in the rotation, Andre is pouting at me (you’d think he’d realize that if he’d stop with the sulking and get with the talking things would happen faster but noooo…thtat would be too SIMPLE and too EASY so we can’t have THAT, now can we…  That’s ok…Imma be telling Emma on his non-verbal ass.  SO THERE, ANDRE – SO! THERE!)

Anyway, here’s Ch. 31 (31!!!) of Decisions.  I really hadn’t meant for this little story to go on so long…oy…

Enjoy!  Imma go hide now.

Decisions Story Banner

EN: ATS, Ch. 12, is up!

It’s 2:21am so I be not witty.  Sorry…

Here’s the chapter, and I hope you enjoy.  It’s short, but relevant…

Norwegian Viking Age Swords – Typology


Interesting sword information.

Norwegian Viking Age Swords – Typology

Vikingsword Island of Ingoy

Remains of a Viking sword from the Island of Ingøy, Northern-Norway, classified as a Type H sword in the Peterson typology. (Photo:

The sword was one of the most important weapons in the Viking Age together with ax and spear. Viking swords are found throughout Scandinavia, but the majority counting about 3500 have been found in Norway.

The reason is that the pagan burial customs of putting swords into graves were more common in Norway than in Sweden and Denmark. Several Viking swords are also found in the British Isles, Mainland Europe, Russia and the Baltics.

A typical sword has a blade that measures 70 to 90 centimeters (27.5 – 35.4 in) – and may have one or two edges. Single edges were common at the start of the Viking Age, but in the 800s and 900s AD, two edges became common.

Because WP has been weird here lately, here’s a list of my recent posts just in case you missed anything:

It’s a 2-fer…~ish: The Moon, Ch. 22 + a tiny non-fic piece

Ok, I’ll be honest – I started to not post this today since it’s Saturday and I know that most of my readers are busy on the weekends and may not have time to sit down and read, but then I decided that I wasn’t in a withholding mood.  I hope you DO have time to plop your butt in a comfy place and escape for a bit.

The first item is Chapter 22 of The Moon (I kind of think you’ll like this chappie!).  The second is a little non-fic piece you might like – read it if you want, and if you do I hope you enjoy it.

aThe Moon banner

This piece is a, well, it’s a something…a short something:

Death Now Has A Dog…But Still No Head

Enjoy?  Your thoughts, as always, are welcome.

Decisions, Chapter 30, is up, and it’s long…

Srsly, grab a drink…maybe a donut…go potty first…  I’d meant to “progress the plot” further but there’s still a lot happening in this chapter, so read carefully – there might be a test!  (Or not…)  Lol, just enjoy.

I’ve clicked to “enable comments” in all the places WP tells me I can, but there is NO telling if the Comment Box will actually appear or not.  (It’s all out of whack since WP’s ridiculous fuckedupdate.)  I have no idea if the Comment Box will magically appear below…or not.  So, there’s that.  I started to delay posting this update since I *do* value my readers’ comments (hint hint), but I wouldn’t do that to y’all.

So, here ya go in its almost 5,000-word glory:

Decisions Story Banner

WordPress is being strange (aka: WTF?)


—> Since WordPress has decided to fuck with the ability to leave comments/reviews (the comment box comes and goes, and hell, WP is even having problems ensuring that post notification emails make it out…*eyeroll*), please feel free to visit my loathed fanfiction.asshole site, my AO3 site, or my TWCS site for this and all fics until they can figure out how to get their collective heads out of their collective asses.  Comment away!  WE WILL NOT LET THEM WIN!! **glare***   <—

So not only did WP magically and mysteriously “disenable” my Comment boxes (fixed now) on today’s new chapter, but I’m finding out that apparently it didn’t even send out some email alerts when I posted it, either.

That makes me wanna kick inanimate objects…you know, ones named “WordPress”.  I have really strong thighs…I can kick pretty damn hard…

Andre might not be my most popular story (understandable since it IS about Andre…yes, that Andre) but I put just as much time and effort into it as I do my higher-profile fics and it makes me angry that my readers who HAVE given it a chance might miss a new chappie b/c of WP’s fuckery.

Fucking meanypants.

Here’s the link for the new chapter (again) in case WP snubbed you:

Andre banner1

The Revealing of Andre, Chapter 44, is up!

This chapter gave me fits.  I hope Andre appreciates the effort, but really he’s probably off snickering at me in retribution for having him create odd glittery pottery in that crack fic. Sadly, I couldn’t blame him (Sorry for the crack fic, Andre…- it was just your turn…). 

Hope you like!

Andre banner1

So this is it… Lol, Act 3 of the Andre crack fic is up and that POS is now complete!

Several of you fantastic fuckers have been going through some rough times here lately, and this silly crack fic was meant to bring you a few giggle-snorts, maybe a full-on belly laugh (ok, so I really wanted at least some of y’all to pee your pants laughing, but it’s ok if you didn’t…I won’t pout…much…*dabs eye with tissue*). 

I love thinking that I’ve brought a bit of sunshine, or at least some fun snark, to your life to brighten your day.  Life can suck donkey ass at times and if I can use my words to bring fun and joy to my fuckawesome readers, then that’s what Imma gon’ do.

So here.  This is the third and final “Act” in this mess.   It’s:



Over and…out.

Clicky the pikky and read and giggle and then tell me I’m pretty (snark) — Just don’t tell Andre I wrote this…(not snark) :

EN: ATS Ch. 11 is up!

Yes, the FLM (“flighty li’l muse”) might have spawned a 3-Act Parody of Andre (just do NOT tell him about it…) – it’s pure unmitigated fluffly nonsense and the third “act” will be posted either this evening or tomorrow – but: I’ve also been working on “the regulars”. 

It’s EN: ATS’s turn, so…HERE!  CATCH!  This chapter is all E/S…  Let me know in the comments if you liked it!  :D

Eric Northman After the Show Main Banner Pic

Anyone ready for “Act 2”?

No sense waiting to post the 2nd “Act”, right?  Right!  There’s one more “Act” after this… I hope you enjoy this fluffy bit of semi-perverted, non-homogenized, pasteurized-processed, Grade AA nonsense.   Happy Weekend!

So I was straightening out my CRACK FICS menu and…

So I was straightening out my CRACK FIC menu and then this happened.  Well, I was straightening that out AND I was kind of pissed off at my doctor’s office for not calling me back and so I apparently decided to take it out on Andre.

He’s a big boy, he can take it.  (Just, you know, don’t, like, TELL him or anything…what he doesn’t know won’t hurt me, right?)

But yeah, this is the kind of thing that can happen when I’m left unattended for a couple of hours.

No, I am *not* starting any other fics right now – this bit of useless fluff is complete in three “acts” which (by the time you read this) will be/are already loaded into drafts and most likely will be scheduled to post automagically (begging might get them posted faster…I dunno…still pissed at the dr’s ofc).

Hope you like!

Summary:Anyway, I was clearing away Tumblr and saw this gif of Sookie staking Bill from season 6.  Inspiration immediately bloomed for a one-shot and here it is.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So I usually love anything that Gyllene writes and this little one shot is no exception. It’s simple and perfect.

It’s basically her take one what would’ve happened if Sookie’s stake HAD killed Bill. (Ah, we can all dream, right???) I loved the uncertainty that pervades this fic and the adorable quality that comes in at the end.

(I’ve been watching too many cooking shows…gah!) Anyhoo-it’s a sweet and short little fic that will leave you all fuzzy and happy. So go head on over and check it out. And don’t forget to leave her some love!

STC, Ch. 18, is up!

If y’all are sensing a trend in my update schedule, it’s because there is one.  I aim to update each of my 5 current WIPs in order  so that NO story gets left behind or left alone for too long. 

This, of course, is assuming the muse is willing – that flighty little bitch is prone to tossing out new story ideas, but I do use things like WILLPOWER and SELF CONTROL and LOTS OF MEAN-SOUNDING NO!!s to make myself only write up the summary/relevant notes for new stuff and then I make me TUCK THE IDEAS AWAY in a folder marked (oddly enough) STORY IDEAS FOR LATER so that I can concentrate on the fics that I already have open.  Of course, said muse also sometimes gets bright and takes a vacay withOUT taking me because, as I may have mentioned once or twice, she a flighty little bitch like that…  (Remember that time she took off with Andre and didn’t tell me for, like, ever?!?)

But anyway, this is the GENERAL rotation schedule:  Next up will, theoretically, be EN: ATS, then should come Andre (hush), then Decisions, then The Moon, then STC again, rinse, repeat.  (Now watch…I’ll get stuck on EN:  ATS and then Cara in Decisions will start screaming at me and then Willa will run off and do terrible things in Moon and then Andre will glare and ugh…yeah…that’s how it goes sometimes.)

Anyway,  here’s the next chapter of STC – hope you like it:

*grumble*  WP isn’t letting me set links in pics for buttons right now, so instead of clicking on the pretty, pretty pic, click on the *grumble* pretty blue words.   (I could have waited until WP got its shit sorted, but I like y’all too much to do that.)  Hope you enjoy!


(Also don’t forget to check out the latest chapters for Andre and Decisions, too!)


Decisions, Chapter 29 – caution: lots of words in chapter…proceed with care…

I used all my available words up in the chapter so this part’s short.
Read, enjoy, and review!

The Revealing of Andre, Chapter 43, is up!

1.  Thank you everyone for your well-wishes and support during the “The Great and Annoying Revenge of the Hands, V. 2015“.  The Site of the Great and Invisible Splinter is now all-but undetectable, and the Stabby-Sore Finger-Joint of Death and Grumbling seems to have finally shut-it.  The Voldemorting Palm Scar seems to be minding its manners, too, so yeah, that’s good.

I wisely and/or lazily gave all of the above a couple days’ extra rest before hovering too closely over my keyboard just in case.  You know how vengeful hands can be.  I wouldn’t want them attacking me in my sleep and I know those bitches…they totally would, too.

2.  For some reason WordPress has become a wise-ass here recently and has decided that aprox. one-fourth of the reviews and comments I receive need, for some reason, to go hide out in either the Pending or the SPAM folder instead of posting normally.  I’ve caught quite a few reviews and other comments from long-time readers as well as from some of my newer lovelies hanging out and being bored in those folders.  I’ll go through and approve (again and again and again), but for some reason it keeps happening.  I’m only letting y’all know about WP’s strange new habit so you won’t wonder where’n hell your review went when it doesn’t show up immediately, but no worries – I keep an eye on those folders. 

Also, I’ve been told by a couple of friends that, apparently depending on their phone’s system?, they sometimes have to enter their comments two or three times to get them to go through.  I dunno if this is a phone thing, a WP thing, or a duck farting in China thing, but it sounds very frustrating.  The comments do come through eventually, though, if you keep entering them.  I guess you have to keep stabbing “enter” or whatever till that duck farts or something.

KEEP REVIEWING, though – review OFTEN and LOTS and all that jazz CAUSE IT MAKES ME HAPPY!  :D  I like being happy!  Happy is good!

Okee dokee, after all that ado’ing, voilà:

New One Shot & Personal Update


SHE LIVES! (or would you prefer: She’s BAAACK! ?)
Either way (and complete with a NEW BUNDLE OF HANDSOME JOY), Gabrielle Blue has a new story up – check out her words – she uses them well! She’s also a great lady in her own right? write?, and a great friend. Go! Shoo! Read!

Reposting this due to some fb link issues

Hello everyone! Gosh, it’s been so long since I’ve last posted anything for you. It’s closing in on a year since the last story I shared with you. I’d say I’m sorry, but it’s been such a wonderful time for me that I can’t even begin to bitch about my muse going into hiding.

I’m going to state here that I’m going to go a bit into details about my life this past year. If you’re not interested in reading this just scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the link there to get to a new one shot that may or may not get continued.

Normally I wouldn’t complain about crap like this to y’all who have by far better things to do than listen to me whine, but I figured (according to PMs, emails, etc…) that some of you kind-ass’d folks might be wondering just where the hell I am.  Therefore, to dispel the (non-existent) rumors, I’m checking in to let y’all know that I have not (yet) fallen off the face of the earth (hush, I can hear you).  I have, however suffered a slight injury of mysterious but painful origin to the last joint of my right hand ring finger.   To make matters even more exciting/whine-worthy, I somehow decided to acquire a splinter – a RECALCITRANT, INVISIBLE splinter – in  my left index/pointer finger just for funsies!  (sarcasm)

My typing fingers appear to be revolting against me.  It seems they are not a fan of my word spewage, ouchy little bastards.  I’m glaring at them mightily (and somewhat condescendingly) as I “hunt and peck” on the keyboard even as I, well, hunt and peck.   Thankfully I give good glare.

(FWIW:  I also apparently have nerves reactivating below an ANTIQUE, ANCIENT scar – ok, so I made the scar when I was in, like, 5th? grade when I accidentally sliced through the meaty side of my palm with a pocket knife.  What used to be numby is now alluvafuckingsudden painful in short but loud {my bad} bursts.)

Anyway, this is just to let y’all know that I haven’t forgotten about you luscious delectable (and rather brilliant) readers-mine, that I haven’t (yet) disappeared from this mudball of a planet…that I’m still around…and that I’m currently whining with surprising efficiency.    I also give good whine.

Thank you for your time.  You may now return to your regularly scheduled whatevs.   I’m going to go whine some more.

(I have, however, perfected the art of dunking Danish butter cookies in my coffee, so that’s a delicious plus!)
