Told-ja so: STC, Ch. 34, is up!

I hope you guys like!!  Assuming the universe is all kind and shit I’ll maybe actually even get a chance to (hopefully) reply to (hopefully) all your (hopefully) kind comments on this chapter (hopefully). 

Hopefully.

I hate when I can’t because you guys are great.

*sigh*

Enjoy!

Let me know what you think, and have a great one (the “one” being entirely up to you, natch…).

S is TC again, y’all – Chapter 33 is up!

Here there be vampires!  And Fairies!  And Godric!  Who’s both!!
Heh, enjoy and let me know what you think.

(And just as a reminder, I’ve posted Chapters 39 and 40 of The Moon, too, in the past week or so, so there’s that, too.)

I didn’t spend many letters typing on and on about Eric and Godric growling and snarling in this chapter because, well, that kind of thing is understood, right?  It’s not that I forgot to describe it, right?  Nope, that’s not it at all.  Much.  Carry on…

The Moon, Ch. 40 – A Sookie Interlude…Sookilude? Wait…

Ok fantabulous readers-mine, this is for you.  You know Sookie’s weird-ass’d cravings and her new-fangled fairy light hands?  Remember that teleportative pop to Eric’s side several chapters back?

First, thank you very much for all your kind words and concern.  You guys are the best readers any fanfic writer could ever ask for and you’re mine-all mine-all mine!!  Ok, and other writers’, too…but that’s not the point… 

Srsly, thank you – I really do appreciate you.

The One Night Outtake is up!

Get it while it’s hot!

Thank you for all the lovely comments and reviews on the last Part!!  I feel bad for not taking the time to reply as I normally do (which I love doing), but time was limited and I wanted to get this Outtake finished and up while the FLM was cooperating.   (*She said “Hi”, btw…well, it sounded more like “send coffee and salty, buttery crab legs”, but I’ll interpret it to have meant a greeting instead…bossy little snot…)

Now, like with most of my fics, this outtake (it’s about the size of two regular chapters in a regular fic) has both funny and more serious stuff.  Let me know what you think, though.

Anyway, hope you enjoy:

One Night

 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Also, Pt. 6 of One Night, The Third Night, is up!

So yeah, the FLM decided to cooperate with me for once (I think she just wanted the cherry o’cream cheese pie, honestly, since she’s not usually that willing to work with me and she has a terrible sweet tooth).  Hope you guys have had/are having a fantastic Thanksgiving and/or Thursday!

Enjoy, and as usual, let me know what you think.   The Alka Seltzers are beside the sink.  *Sorry, just ate too much…

One Night

There was other stuff I was going to write here but, well, I forgot what it was.  I’m sure it would have been super-witty and/or thought-provoking, though.  Have a good one, and enjoy the slightly shorter Part, lol.

1 Night-3rd Night-Pt. 5: NOW WITH MORE GODRIC is up!

One Night, Part Whatever, is up + OMGODRIC, YOU GUYS – THANK YOU!!!!!

Keep in mind that you guys are not allowed to yell at me because I’ll cry and get all red-eyed and snotty (srsly, I have a terrible cry-face), ok?  (ThisparticularNightwillhaveaPart5.)
(IfItellyoulikethisitsoftenstheblow,right?)

Pack a lunch.  And dinner.  And some snacks.  Oh, and you guys may wanna take notes as you go – this bad boy is…you guessed it…hella long.  You’ll see why I stopped it when I did.  It’s also why it took for fucking ever to get it out to you, too. (FLM told me to say that.)

So…you lovely readers who like long reads will be in Heaven.  You lovely readers who don’t…can take several breaks – just remember where you left off…  This Part happens within a relatively short time and contains funny-ha has, seriousness, a gasp or two, mountains, correct pronunciations, a Pam, a cat, a ‘vette, and maybe a couple of cherries (Eric refused to verify).  Proceed with vigor!  😉

One Night

Now:

gold heart THANK YOU Godric and Eric thank you2 Thank you2

OMGODRIC, YOU GUYS – THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

When the fantastic Missingjasamalways commented to tell me to check out the YWB winners…I did…AND THEN I SCARED MY DOG SQUEEEING!  (Yes, “squeeeing” is too a word.)

Thanks to you fanfuckingtastic readers AND VOTERS!!!, I won 8 Awards!

That’s eight.  E.I.G.H.T.  7 + 1.  ***—>  8  <—***  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

That is 8 (EIGHT!!!) more than I’d had a hope to win, y’all, and it’s all because of YOU.  Did you see how fierce the ‘competition’ was?  (And by “competition” I mean that we’re not actually competing against each other – we may not all be best buddies but we’re hella more likely to support each other than not because there’s no NEED for any competitive feelings in our luscious fandom.)  There were so many amazing writers and amazing stories and you guys voted for me!
THANK YOU!!!

Can I brag now??  *pfft*  Given ALL the AMAZING talent represented in these awards, hell yeah Imma brag:

First and foremost considering the new Part linked above, here is the one for One Night:  PINS AND NEEDLES, Y’ALL – PINS! AND! NEEDLES!!!  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot Award – Best One Shot

The Hybrid Award – Best Crossover

Rollercoaster Award – Best Angst / Drama / Cliffhangers

The Saucy Award – Best Sookie  (Woot!!  Go Sookie!!  Yeah, I’m totally seal-clapping here…oops, sorry for any flashbacks…)

The Flying Monkey Award – Best Villain  (*mwahahaha*)

Who the Hell Are You Award – Best Original Award  (Yay for Sevrin!!!!  He totally just grunted a thank you…FLM will verify!)

And last but hella-certainly not least:

EricIzMine Award – Favorite Author  (Ok, this one made me tear up a little/lot – you have no idea how very much I appreciate this.)

Really, thank you so very much for all the love.  It means the world to me that you find time in your day to read my words and let me know what you think, but that you even take the time to cast your votes for me blows my socks off.   (You did know I’m naked under my socks, right?  NO BLUSHING…!) Now go read and enjoy, and know you’ve made me very happy!

~Mer

 

Happy Friday’ing – STC, Ch. 31, is up!

Because you’re not here to listen to me blather on about whatever (well, ok, you kind of are, fanfic-wise at least…), here’s the chapter link first:

1 Night, etc., Part 3 is up!

DON’T YELL AT ME – I’LL POUT. 

This particular night in this story just… keeps… growing.  And growing. 

Srsly. 

NOW this poor little Third Night is up to a projected total of ***4*** Parts (possibly 5 depending on how mouthy everyone is during the next Part)…and that’s not even including Godric’s bit!   And I totally blame/credit Eric.  Dude’s mouthy when he wants to be.  He has lots of words and sometimes enjoys using most of them.  (And maybe Jason a little, too.  He counts a little, right?)

But yeah, instead of having y’all wait even longer on ‘the next Part’, I’m posting this now.  I mean, it’s over 8,000 words worth of Eric-centric fun and games and yes, the wee spider is still all fine and dandy, so there shouldn’t be any/much yelling.  If there is, Imma be pouting…and possibly glaring depending on the moon phase/how much coffee is in my cup.

Anyway, here, and I hope you enjoy.  Mandatory “don’t forget to vote” and last-posted links linger lackadaisically below the linky-pic.  Happy reading, leave a review, and tip your server.

One Night

Reminder that voting in the final round of the 2016 YWB Awards ends on Oct. 17th at midnight.  So, um, GO VOTE and stuff.

One Night – The Third Night – bla bla IS UP!

Ok, this Part is NOT as much of a major time investment as some of the others have been (think “snacks”, not “lunch, dinner, and snacks”).  Now, compared to ‘normal’ chapters yeah, it’s still long – THERE IS AN INTERMISSION, or rather, an “INNERMISSION” (you’ll see)…, but this Part isn’t as much of a saga.

Barely.

It’s still well over 5,000 words, so, yeah, NO GRUMBLING. 

And, on THAT note, this “Third Night” will have – repeat: will have – 4 Parts (now).  (Later? WTF knows…I’m just writing it as it goes, kind of, mostly.  And Eric’s a mouthy swot.  Damn spiders.) Yes, Godric is still going to magically appear during this Third Night, toward the end, just as always.

Why, you might ask, is this Third Night going on so long?

BLAME.  ERIC.

Dude’s mind is…yeah.  If you’ve been following this saga, you know.

It may-might-maybe also be a bit my fault…lots of things happen during this highly eventful Night.  Lots of shit be goin’ down, as Lala (sadly, not in this fic, at least, not yet?  Who knows…) might say.

So anyway, here ya go.

(And yes, I am totally evil-snickering over here cause I know what happens “now” and what’s gonna happen “then”.)

One Night

Read, like, review, send coffee and donuts (a grilled cheese with 4-minute fries wouldn’t go amiss…), maybe a pickle or two, whatevs…

 

Ok, so…Moon, Chapter 35, is up!

I know One Night is the main attraction just now, but the muse and I decided to show some love to The Moon.  Eric and Sevrin demanded it, and yeah, well, *you* try to tell those vamps no…

*pfft*  Exactly.

But first, in case you missed it, here are the past few posted chapters (we all know how WP notifications sometimes go, um…awry, right):

One Night – The Third Night – Part 1

One Night – The Second Night – Part 3

Both the clock and the FLM have miraculously cooperated so have at it and let me know what you think:

COME AND GET IT!!! One Night – The Second Night – Part 3 is up!

And…it’s a biggie, longer even than Part 2 was (just without all the Eric/contract bored frustration).  Sorry for all the wordage…be sure to pack a lunch…and maybe a dinner…but hey, there IS an Intermission, so…there’s that?  *side eye*

Obligatory reminder: Awards/vote/nominations/something.

Now, GO READ!  ENJOY!  LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!

One Night

Decisions, Ch. 38, and stuff

*grumble*  My  mouse died (thanks MercRx…) so I’m having to use one of the old ones until the new one arrives (theoretically on Friday – go Amazon Prime!).  This one works fine except for the scroller thingie – you know, the thing that made me toss it in the electronics graveyard in the first place.

EN: ATS, Ch. 19, is up!

I have to be up at ass:30 in the morning but I wanted to get this on out to y’all cause I’m all wonderful an’ stuff (and I hate having content just sitting on my desktop gatherin’ dust, lol).

So..this has not received that last final “going-over” (yes, there’s often more than one “last” going-over, lol) where I find all the silly, stupid, and sometimes funny errors. If (sadly, when…) you find mistakes, simply overlook them (hey, it’s a free fanfic…what can I say?).  If said errors are somehow egregious, scream at me via the “Ask Me” contact button (that’d be the mature and otherwise acceptable way of notifying fanfic writers that YOU’VE SPOTTED AN ERROR!!!111!!!  Srsly, ain’t none of us paid for SVM/TB-fanfic writin’…) and I’ll look at it when I get back on tomorrow (probably evening…because you really needed to know that, right?).

In the meantime:  Enjoy!

*psst:  go read!  review!  then pet kitties and puppy-doggies!  call your mama and/or daddy!  take a nap!!!  deep-throat the drinkable-temperature’d contents of a pot of coffee for me!!!!  😀

Just a little one-shot to hopefully brighten your day

An imagine popped into my brain-box most-way through Monday evening.  In this image I ‘saw’ Eric holding a gold-painted metal music box – small, old but not antique, well-tended but nothing special…and voilà:  Ten Years Later was born.

Read on to find out more – and read with a kind eye, please.  There’s humor in this piece, and maybe a touch of “awww”…

STC, Ch. 29, is up, and new PDFs added

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the PDFs page conveniently listed as “PDFs” in the menus, have a look.  I’m slowly converting posted one-shots and finished fics into – you guessed it – downloadable PDFs for y’all (cause I’m all nice and cool and shit like that).   Converting these fics is a slow-going process done in my spare time (let’s all laugh gaily at the thought of that mythical “spare time” bullshit, shall we?), but I’ll post’em as I do’em so check that page every now and then. (There may be a chance that a multi-chapter fic or three may-just-might be pulled from all sites at some nebulous point in the far-flung future so grab’em if you like’em.)

Anyway, happy reading!

This post is long, but first things first:

Okee dokee – here’s the link to One Night – The Second Night – Part 2.  It’s…it’s a doozy.  Approach this chapter with caution and coffee. And trail rations.  That bad boy is LONG and yes, I am ABSOLUTELY blaming Eric.  He’s big and broad…he can shoulder the blame…

PLOT TWIST…or rather…TEASER!

Ok, One Night – The Second Night – Part 2 is taking a bit longer to write than I had anticipated (mainly because I’ve also been working on Decisions, Moon, and STC…and also because I can be a bit wordy…sorry…), but it WILL BE ready to post in the next day or three, give or take…God willing and the creeks don’t rise…

In the meantime, here’s a wee teaser to tide y’all over:

•~•0•~•

With extreme reluctance Eric gave into the demands of time and slowly descended to land near the bottom of the steps leading up to Sookie’s porch. The Dae Cataliades’s sedately lawyer-esque vehicle was parked close by, his faint odor leading to the front steps Eric was oddly loathe to mount, and the sounds and scents of the remaining Were guards drifted through the wooded lands surrounding the old house.

Fury briefly spiked his blood.

Fucking Alcide off hiding in the bathroom chatting up one of his literal Werebitches while leaving Sookie unprotected… What if I hadn’t been there?  What if Compton had managed to…  Mangy flea-infested bastard will pay…

It took a second for Eric to refocus.

The contracts that would be discussed that night wouldn’t necessarily provide Sookie with immediate physical protection and he needed to secure more and better guards who were actually responsible enough to warrant his trust.

Obviously that pathetic mutt would rather spend his time chatting on phones in bar restrooms than doing his fucking job, but that other one… Tray?  Trey? However the fuck he spelled his name, he might be far more qualified.  He’s a loner, too, not overly affiliated with any one pack, so logistics wouldn’t be an issue.

Signed contracts would, however, vastly increase Sookie’s future security, as they would be both legally and, possibly, magically binding, but having his arms filled with her warm, soft form noticeably dimmed his enthusiasm for the upcoming discussions.

To his inner satisfaction, Sookie didn’t seem to be in any hurry, either.

She might have stepped away from him when they landed but, he noted smugly, she hadn’t stepped far.  His arm was still draped across her back and she wasn’t shrugging it away.

Content to let her set the pace, his arm sank to her waist and was far more “resting” than “leading” as they ambled toward that first riser.

He noted when a curious look crossed her face, and on the third step she stopped and looked up at him although he was still on the first. Her expression was now somewhat disturbed.

When she rose on her tiptoes, he graciously leaned toward her.

“Eric, I can tell someone is in there with Gran and I know it’s bound to be that lawyer, but I can’t make out his thoughts. They’re like a mix of radio static and white noise. I’ve never heard anything like that before.”

He kept his features neutral but inside he grimaced.

Damn. Trust the Dae to have odd brains… This is not the time to have to explain about a new species. I have to tell her something, but how do I tell this sheltered little babe in the woods that those woods are a hell of a lot more crowded than she’d ever guess?

He stared into her eyes with his mind still racing.

Oh, hey, Little Red Riding Hood, guess what – not only is the big bad human-wolf hybrid a thing that exists, but demons are real, too! And there are fairies and witches and maenads OH MY! But never fear, you get to meet a demon in three…two…

Yeah. That would work.

Standing as they were with Sookie two steps…

•~•0•~•

So…are you teased now??  Lol, let me know what you think, and fingers crossed the rest will magically appear soon.
