I didn't know you were on LJ! :-)

I didn't know you were on LJ!

It's a recent event. I blame Kristen and the fact that I wanted to make icons. And that I've gotten dragged into SPN (not exactly against my will) and that seems to be largely LJ-based. Which means I have to go back and read your SPN fic now that I know who the characters are. :)
Jan. 28th, 2009 04:04 pm (UTC)
Yay for Kristen! She's been drabbling at my numb3rs100 comm and putting out some stellar fic. /nods/

SPN is scary big on LJ. I've only recently started to actually get involved with the fandom part of it instead of just writing fic (I started that three years ago after getting dragged in by my N3 friends who went Brothers! Must watch!) and while it's rather daunting it's interesting to be involved in such a vast fandom. (Check out spnroundtable to see me in this month and November doing the fandom thang. ;-)

I'll have to read your SPN fic! I had no idea you were SPNing. Coolness! I've only had one fic recced on crack_impala, but I live for the day when I get another fic recced. There are so many really good authors in the fandom it means a lot to get a rec. A worthy goal. /grins/

Anyway, happy to see you here!

The spookiest thing about this story (and I speak before reading) is that it was posted on Jan. 2, 2015!

What were you doing in 2015? And why come back?
Jan. 28th, 2009 01:30 pm (UTC)
What were you doing in 2015? And why come back?

Wouldn't you like to know...

It's my clumsy way of keeping the fic list at the top because I don't know squat about LJ. Hopefully I'll figure out more as I go along. :)
Jan. 29th, 2009 05:07 pm (UTC)
So... How did you convince LJ that you're writing from 2015? Inquiring minds want to know.
Jan. 29th, 2009 09:11 pm (UTC)
There's a little "Edit" link next to the date of the post when you're writing or editing it that you can use to change the date.

And, your longer SPN stories are still sitting in my inbox (ff.net alerts) waiting to be read. I'm finally heading towards few enough tabs being open that I might be able to read them!

Ah, that explains the lack of reviews from one of my most consistent reviewers. :) No worries, take your time. Just note the spoiler warnings; I'm not sure how far you are into the season yet.

Oh, Supernatural is one that I'm usually only a couple of days behind on, seeing as the fandom is so huge and I'd have no chance staying spoiler free.
Yeah, I know what you mean. I try to avoid LJ until I've seen the ep, which is taking about 24 hours now since our local station switched to digital broadcast and I don't have a digital TV yet. And I didn't know you were in Oz...there's a lot of you folks in the SPN fandom!

Little late on the bandwagon, but I'm glad to see you on LJ, now I can check for new fics on my friends' page!

I was recently rereading some of your fics (and then wondering how it got to be so late!) and I still absolutely love the Numb3rs ones! Please tell me you're still writing in this fandom!
Jun. 11th, 2009 05:51 pm (UTC)
Hi there! I do have some NUMB3RS fic half-written that I really should work on...maybe when the summer settles down a little. Thanks for the encouragement!
Jun. 11th, 2009 07:41 pm (UTC)
Oh, you just made my day even better! With all the fantastic fic that's been coming out this week I didn't think that was possible.

Well, if your muse needs a little nudge, just let me know. I seem to be sending muses on all kinds of writing frenzies lately! It worked with ALEO and I think loozy is still cursing my name for not leaving her muse alone.

Jun. 12th, 2009 03:12 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks. My muse is quite happy right now, actually, just not on NUMB3RS! I'm giving ficfinishing another try this month, though, so hopefully that'll kick-start something.
Jul. 12th, 2009 01:58 pm (UTC)
Hey, rinkle and I just created the hurt_don community and I was wondering if perhaps you'd mind posting links to your fics in which Don was hurt. Or would you mind if I do so?

We'd like the comm to be resource for Don fans and would thus like to link to existing hurt!Don fics as well as new ones that come out.

Thank you! RL is getting in the way right now, but the summer should be better. I appreciate the interest. :)

Asking for permission to translate your fic
Hi, in case you didn't check your other livejournal account, I'll just post it here as well.

Hey, really enjoyed reading 'The Winchester Identity' and really really like to share it with people who can't read in English. I don't know if anyone asked before, but I'll ask anyway, would you mind if I translate this fic into Chinese? It might take some time for me to finish translating, since this is a really long fic, but I'll email you the link of the finished work after I actually finish it... Sorry, I'm babbling here...
All in all, would you give me the permission to do the translation? Looking forward to hear from you. Thanks.
Jul. 16th, 2018 09:23 pm (UTC)
Hi there,

love your work. And I was going through looking for a new story to read and noticed 'Making an Ending' link is not working.
Is it still available to read?
