sparrow2000: (Circe)
Having reached my two year mark of writing every week in response the [livejournal.com profile] tamingthemuse prompt, I get these shiny, pretty things as a reward. Big thanks to Calypso for being so talented in making the pretty banners and icon. The Goddess I chose was Circe, daughter of Helios and Perse.

If I’ve calculated right this is my 104 weeks at [livejournal.com profile] tamingthemuse – wow! Two years of writing and posting every week through mad days at work and family crisis and moving half way across the world. I’ve got some other stories in my head, but I’m going to take some time out to let them cook, so I’m going to take a rest from taming for a bit. Huge thanks to the mods for running a great comm, to everyone who reads and has been so supportive and most of all to [livejournal.com profile] thismaz, just because.

Now that I’ve done my best Sally Field impression, on with the fun...

This is the final part of my Daddy’s Boy ‘verse. I hope you enjoy.

Here’s part five of my Daddy’s Boy ‘verse. This one won’t make much sense if you don’t read the other ficlets, but they’re all under 1000 words – honest! Oh and despite the title of the ‘verse, it isn’t daddy kink!

Realisations is on hiatus for a week. I’m away a bit this week and don’t have time to give it the care and attention it deserves. But it will be back next week, promise. In the mean time here’s a bit of original stuff. I’ve been going to a autobiographical writing workshop these last few weeks, which has been interesting and allowed me to close the book on a few things as I move forward into a new phase in life. Here’s something I’ve been working on in response to the class prompt of Teacher/Mentor and temptation seemed an appropriate trigger for the subject matter.

Whoo Hoo, look what I got. A pretty banner to mark 75 weeks of posting every week at [livejournal.com profile] tamingthemuse! I don't think I would have had the nerve to start writing if I'd realised that was going to happen.

Big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lit_gal for starting such a great community and to the current mods, Neb, Calypso and Piksa for doing such a great job behind the scenes every week. Thanks to all the folk who've taking the time to read my ramblings over year and a half, and for commenting and being generally cool. Biggest thanks go to the unflappable [livejournal.com profile] thismaz who doesn't laugh at my first drafts - well not in front of me, anyway! *g*

Anyway, Oscar speech over with, now it's back to 'auld claes and porridge' as we Scots would say! I've got to figure out how to get the boys out of the Initiative or else Realisations is going to come to a grinding halt!

I'm putting Realisations on temporary hiatus, just for a couple of weeks. We get the keys to our house next week, so we're in the process of packing up the rental suite we've been in since January, and then we'll be unpacking at the new place. So I'm not going to get much time to write for a couple of weeks and I don't want to short change the story by rushing it. So apologies to anyone who was waiting for it - peers out into void. The boys will be back - honest!

Apologies, but there’s no Realisations this week. Spike is sulking because I wrote him that terrible last line in the last chapter. So I’m hoping he’ll be more amenable next week. So instead…

This is a companion piece to my earlier Angel/Angelus, Buffy ficlet Masks, though you don't need to read one to get the other. Thinking about it, it occurred to me that of course Buffy was just one of a line of girls targeted by Angelus… This is a bit different from my normal style, so I'm a little nervous!
