That oft-mentioned BNP “outtake” is ready for your viewing pleasure

It is what it is – a somewhat longish “outtake” in all its questionable glory complete with required “intermission”.  Hope you like!

BNP, PT. 9 – come and get it!

Ok, y’all – here it is in all its (hopeful) glory.  This has been a wild ride for me and your support has helped more than you could know.  I took me out of my “writing comfort zone” completely expecting to fail miserably, but I had to try, ya know?  So…I did it…and you fantastic readers-mine gave me the best love and support I could ever have asked for – thank you!  (Thanks for the coffee and donuts, too!)

This is the last Part, but it’s a long one, and there will be an outtake posted at some point.  (Ignore any mistakes…it’s 6:12am and I’m going to bed.)

So, without further ado’ing:

BNP huge

As usual, there’s an “intermission”, coffee is suggested as this is a long one…and let me know what you think!

I yet live (Hi – BNP teaser)

Just a note or two:

1-  HELLO TO MY NEW FOLLOWERS!!  Welcome aboard,  have a look around – you’ll find the strangest things hiding in the strangest places (cause I suck at site organization), and note the Ask Me feature for if you have questions although I’m still available on FF for PMs if you’d rather ask via that route.   You’ll find several things that weren’t posted over on FF, things written specifically for this site, etc.  You won’t get lost no matter what you click on, so click away.  Reviews/comments are always appreciated and I generally do reply to them.

2- Nope, I have NOT forgotten about BNP.  I did cave and am re-doing a portion of the final chapter (I couldn’t resist), but it’s still on like donkey kong, so no worries there.  It should be up in a few days (time permitting), and I’m giving serious thought to a certain outtake (no, it’s not that…no, not that either…ok, maaaybe…nope).  Srsly, you guys could have NO idea what the outtake is about.

In fact, since you glorious readers-mine have been so patient, here’s a teaser:

Sookie rolled over and gazed at the fine features of the Viking dayresting by her side.  The dim light coming from the partially open bathroom door cast a soft light on his beloved features.

Even now she couldn’t believe he was there…or that she was “there”, either.

She smiled.

As seemed to be the case with “all things Eric”, once he had come back into her life things had sped forward at an inhuman clip.

He was the embodiment of glorious pandemonium, and she wouldn’t change a thing about him.

Sookie remembered with more clarity than she liked how at one time she would have resented her Viking’s ability to turn her entire world upside-down.

Now, though… Now she knew that his “chaos” was actually far better organized than she’d realized.

He still turned her world upside-down and probably always would, but she didn’t mind – there was thought to his actions, thoughts and planning and a knowledge of the world and the way it worked that he had and she didn’t.

Sometimes she liked his plans and sometimes, in the past at least, she hadn’t, but Eric was smart and his plans no matter how far-fetched always had at least some sort of reasoning behind them.

His muscular shoulders, visible above the bed coverings, were broad enough to handle the problems he so willingly chose to bear, and his hands, although she couldn’t see them as one was under his head and the other was behind her waist, were more than big and strong enough to handle whatever came their way.

She truly couldn’t think of a single thing she would change about him even if she could.

So…yup, that’s the first part of what is a really, really long chapter (yes, there will be the usual breaks for intermission).

Anyway, I hope y’all are having a great week, and you’ll (again, time permitting) hear from me again soon.

Send coffee.

NEW CHAPTER…

of BNP!

Yup, here’s Part 8 of 9.  There is one Part after this with a chance of a possible outtake or two.  CHANCE.  MAYBE.  But I can’t wait to hear what y’all think about this Part…

BNP huge

I hope you enjoy!

BNP: Pt. 7 is up because #‎snOMG‬ ‪#‎snoPOCALYPSE‬ ‪#‎snoMAGEDDON‬

Snow sucks. 

It’s *gorgeous* to watch while it’s falling but the mess after said gorgeous falling sucks misshapen genitalia. Thankfully I’m in the mostly-snow zone for this “winter weather event” but there’s a chance for ice/freezing sky piss, so there’s a chance that my power might go bye-bye if there’s any accumulation of weight on trees and/or power lines. 

So, yeah, here’s the next Part of BNP.  Figured I’d set it free early jic the power does go on hiatus.

Enjoy!  There are several questions answered in this Part, so I hope it helps.

BNP huge

(Somebody tell this nasty mean old winter weather to go the hell away – it’s not listening to me.)

 

Since it’s a holiday for us ‘Merrykins: BNP, Pt. 6 is up!

No comment.  Nope.  None at all.  Well, except to say that although I know *vastly* better than to try to run updates/upgrades on my system while Mercury is in Retrograde or to at least implement stringent precautionary measures if said updates/upgrades are necessary, my dumb ass blithely did it anyway (Firefox because I’m a complete moron and don’t value my favorite add-ons enough to pay fucking attention to the calendar like the dumbass I am).  #bitterness

Yeah.

All sympathies are hereby accepted and appreciated.

Send coffee and ciggies.

It’s gonna be a long-ass’d day.

(Runs for life)

*tosses new BNP Part and hides*

Bribery and guilt trips don’t work.  Honestly.  They don’t.  Not at all.  Nope.  Never.  (*Innocent Look #29*) 

I feel like I should be writing more here but I think I’ve used up all my available words in fic chapters.  I need a refill…so here, go read then leave me lots of comments and reviews.  Maybe I can scrounge some words there.  (*gazes sadly into almost-empty coffee cup…damn thing has a hole in top and needs a refill, too*)

Hope you like it!

BNP huge

And yes, Eric and Sookie – face to face – next Part!  (Yay!!)

To ease the Monday Mehs: BNP, Pt. 4

Ugh, yeah…I feel a Monday comin’ on over here (EST time)…hope this makes YOUR Monday or approach-of-Monday a little less meh-y.

This bit hasn’t been gone over with as fine-tooth’d a comb as the previous three since I’m working on upcoming chapters of EN: ATS and STC (and Moon) as well as plotting for the final/next-to-final chapter of Andre, so ignore anything icky.

HOW-EV-UR, you know that new style of writing I was going on about for the first part?  It somewhat makes a sideways return during Sookie’s portion of this part, so BOLO for it, and let me know what you think.

I hope you enjoy, and srsly, have a great Monday.  I’ve heard that with enough coffee, chocolate for those of you who can eat it, and foot rubs, anything is possible.

BNP huge

And money.  And comfy sweats.  And comfy pillows and a comfy bed.  And comfy fluffy-socks.  And…  *sigh*  Go read.  Enjoy.

Oh, it’s Tuesday – how’bout a two-fer?

So these chapters are a little…wordy.  Hope y’all don’t mind?  I’ll keep this short to make up for it all cause it totally works that way, right?

The Revealing of Andre is winding down.  This chapter reflects it in its length, I think.  There is one more chapter planned after this one (although there’s always the vague possibility of it actually being two, depends on the flm) before it ends.  More information about this is in the AN.  Andre, btw, is a bit pissed at me about this…you know how he gets.

And because I adore you and the love you’re sharing, here’s BNP, Pt. 3 a little early.  I hope you don’t mind too much…

BNP huge

Enjoy!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 2 new chapters, and a lot of words…

(Scroll down past all the inspirational wordage if you’re just wanting to click on the pretty linky-pics.  I won’t know…so I won’t pout.  Much.)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 

I’m posting this a bit “early” for several reasons.

One, and honestly the main reason, is to wish all my addictive and discerning readers an extremely awesome, prosperous, healthy, comfortable, cheerful, and peaceful-with-brief-periods-of-desirable-chaos HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

(This VERY early posting is also to give a more timely shout-out to my lovely readers who live “in the future” – I’m lookin’ at you Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Russia…and wow – you guys are gorgeous!  Hey, let the rest of us know how 2016 is going, wouldja?)  😀

Srsly, I hope every one of you wonderful living beings – products of the culmination of unknown eons of biological luck, evolution, survival of the fittest, and pure bloody-mindedness – can look back on 2015 with fondness and then bust 2016 wide fucking open with hope, energy, inspiration, dreams, plans, smart work (srsly, don’t work “hard” – work smart), creativity, genius, ambition, motivation, and all those other “get up off your ass and get shit done” words, but I also hope you have plenty of sleep and play and star gazing and staring at the dreams that live in the clouds. 

We all need both. 

I hope you and 2016 have a fantastic time together, raise hell and reach heaven, help kittens and puppies and old people and anyone and everyone else who needs a hand up.  You’re strong and powerful and resourceful and ingenious in your own individual ways, so use your powers for the good of all mankind as well as your neighbors and, lastly but not leastl’y, for yourself, too, because dammit, *you’re worth it.

(*Hair dye not included in the preceding motivational-as-fuck speech.)


The second reason is that Decisions, Chapter 34, is finally up.  Godric does some thinkin’, he and Cara do some talkin’, and Cara…Cara is herself.  (You know how she is.)  Enjoy!!  (Sorry for the wait – I tots blame Godric this time around.)

The third reason is, well, weren’t there are a few of you…maybe a couple…at best a tiny handful…who seemed vaguely interested in Part 2 of BNP?  Huh?  Maybe three, four of you?  So yeah, Part 2 of that is up and ready for your reading pleasure.  The tone of this set of wordage isn’t like last time, so do expect the tone to reflect that.  Your support for Part 1 was truly overwhelming and I appreciate every single word.  Thank you, really – you guys make taking writing-style chances seem not quite so scary.  I only hope you like Part 2 as much…

So yeah, this post is a two’fer!

The final reason I”m posting this here and now instead of then and later?

Why not?

😀

(The fact that this is my last post of the year is kind of sad…  I’ll see y’all in the new year, though, hopefully!)

BNP. New short (9 pt) fic. It’s complete. I’ll cry if you yell at me.

Long ago and far away (ok, starting apx. 2 months ago) in my “spare time” (go ahead and laugh with me) whenever I was in a writing mood but wasn’t actively inspired toward one of my *5* WIPs (pleasedon’tthrowthingsatme), I spent that time working on another story (since forcing myself to work on something that I ain’t feelin’ never turns out well and often results in deleted pages…).  It became a personal challenge to me to see if I even COULD finish a fanfic without the encouragement from my lovely readers and their fantastic comments and reviews.  (Y’all should be classified as “addictive”, btw…)

I did it. 

I actually completely finished a fic BEFORE I gave into temptation and started posting the bastard.

Blue Nail Polish has a total of 9 parts.  I call them “parts” since this thing was originally meant to be just a long, then really long, then really really…long ONESHOT.  Yeah, that part laughed its ass off at me.  So…, there are 9 parts.  I’ll be obsessively going back over each one of them before hitting that scarylicious POST button, but them bad boyz is done and will be posted more or less-ish about once a week or so.  (I’m a commitment-phobe…can ya tell?)

*whew*

Now for the nerves part:  the mood of this piece is different from my usual style of writing.  It starts off concentrating on Sookie and how things went for her after offing Bill but thereafter it progresses, time-wise, fairly quickly.  It should feel a bit…jumpy.  It’s hard to explain, but know that it should be – for the most part – different from my usual offerings (except that, as usual, an E/S HEA is guaranteed).  I’m a bit hesitant to post it because of that change in style, but how else will I know what you think of it if I don’t put on my brave pants and post the fuck out of this set of words?

As for that, again, look for “around about” one part a week.  Or so.

Let me know what you think.
