So this might be it for a while - I'm working on a few ficlets for fandom stocking, my novel Firebright, Five Down Low, and a few outstanding fics from my 2012 wishlist, so yes, I have plenty to keep me going. even if I'm assuming effective radio silence till mid-Jan.
Have a wonderful festive season, stay safe and I wish everyone (celebrating or not!) peace and joy.

Summary: "Muscle wanted. Must have friends in low places, play the guitar, and be able to talk your way out of dangerous situations." No one's ever wanted him for his brain, so this just might be the perfect job, Puck thinks. All he has to do is make it to the interview, survive his first day, and keep well clear of his sexy boss and her scary boyfriend.
Chapter 1. Chapter 5.

If you want to delight me with a tiny something to bring in the New Year ... my stocking is HERE. Apparently you go to that post and leave a comment with pressies (fic, art, vids, recs etc) for me to unwrap later.

Summary: “Muscle wanted. Must have friends in low places, and the ability to talk your way out of dangerous situations.” No one's ever wanted him for his brain, so this just might be the perfect job, Puck thinks. All he has to do is make it to the interview, survive his first day, and try not to come on to the boss. Or her boyfriend.
So, it shouldn't surprise anyone that I read a lot of fanfic. So this resulted in gales of laughter and so much "oh YES" before I did a mental stocktake of all my fic to try and remember if I've ever committed any of these sins :D
And there are a bunch of these out there but this was the one that seemed to strike a chord the most. Particularly "you keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means" which is something that happens far too often :D

We're on a roll with the holiday stuff. So… what's your favorite holiday movie or TV episode?
( TV?Collapse )
It's officially one month till Christmas! Post your favorite holiday song.
Tim Minchin's White Wine in the Sun: Probably not what you are expecting. But I have two blue eyed girls and was 9000 miles away from my family for many years, so there is so much truth in this song for me. Always have a tear after listening to it.

So, I don't cook. Certainly not voluntarily, or for fun or anything like that. Also, Christmas is in mid-summer in half of Australia, and in the tropical north where my family lives, what's known simply as "the wet".
Which means ... we don't get all excited over turkey and all the trimmings. We usually have a ham, because - ham off the bone is yummy, and do Christmas cake and all that, but there's only a few traditional things my family does, foodwise, and neither involve a real recipe ...
... Tiger prawns in bulk, off the trawler a few days before Christmas, usually swapped for half a side of beef. (My parents were farmers and still keep a handful of cattle for ... eating.) Prawns are cooked up in profuse amounts, usually just in garlic and butter, and eaten for breakfast, with mango and pawpaw, a smorgasbord of delicious.
The other thing we do at Christmas is let my mother make her homemade, very whiskey-heavy version of Bailey's Irish Cream. If you think the real thing is delicious, my mother's is better. Absolutely irresistable and very, very, drunk-making.
