My big news of the day is that I actually posted a fic! Go me!! And not just any fic, my friends, a Metallica fic. It's up over at Rockfic and because it's a short fic - 835 words - I also posted it on my writing journal, [livejournal.com profile] evainefic. Y'know, in case someone might want to read. (Shameless pimping and I'm ashamed of myself.)

I know some of you are hoping for news from Julie. I can tell you that she's settling in at home, dealing with the after-surgery pain. I mean, this was a HUGE thing, lots of stitches and all, so she's having a lot of pain to deal with. She can't sit at the computer for any longer than 5 or 10 minutes max at this point, so quick emails is the order of the day.

I got some good news at work at the end of last week. Our job profile revision FINALLY got released. We've only been fighting for this since November of 2006 when we took over a whole bunch of job duties from a department in Ontario. And, thank God, we got our profile upgraded! Yep... I'll be getting a raise! And a pretty decent one. *nodding* Works out to about $120 a week.

Thanks to some bigtime encouragement from [livejournal.com profile] joolz82253 and [livejournal.com profile] cobrasnaps I've been working hard on the epic "The Saint Unforgiven"... "The Unforgiven Saint"? Not sure which sounds better, but... anyway... I am actually writing just about every day! And every day that I'm not writing, I'm plotting and musing and figuring things out. It feels DAMNED good!

And it's FINALLY hot here. I mean, it feels like summer at last! There's actually been sun for 3 days running, with 3 more forecast. For this summer, that's unusual!

Be well, my flisties! *HUGS* to you all!

Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence!

1. Eyes that looked anything but sorry less than twenty minutes later as they glanced up at him from below his waist, glittering in the murky light of the single bulb that illuminated the back alley behind the bar.

2. . A low, dank growl came from the darkness and he spun, fist connecting with… something; something hard and covered with slime; something that sent a thread of chill dread shooting through him.

3. It’s also more effective when he has pockets to shove his hands into but his jeans are over there… and it’s getting cold in here… and his ass is bare… and maybe he should just learn to wear goddamned underwear under his jeans… and that wind is fucking loud out there… and the window is rattling… and how come James always has his guitar with him… and where exactly was James right now—

4. He coldly quashes the cynical Lars that’s howling with delighted and amused laughter in one corner of his mind at the predicament Mr. Macho Hetfield has found himself in; and he firmly shuts the door on the smart-ass Lars that wants nothing more than to tell James he doesn’t know what fuckin’ good is until he’s had his dick sucked by a certain Danish drummer, and while he’s at it, could he have the transvestites’ number.

So, while enjoying my morning coffee, my FIRST cup of coffee mind you, I come across a new little fic by my Original Slash Mentor [livejournal.com profile] midnitemaraud_r. So, if you like HP smut, PWP with well-drawn characters (of age for those that are concerned about that stuff) and just plain fun sex, I highly recommend giving it a read. It's James/Sirius/Remus and it's good!

I have just read the three-part Billie/Mike/Tarantino encounter over in The Establishment. And now I'm expected to pack.

*snort*

I must have a masochistic streak in me somewhere.

Legacy

In more than one entry on my flist over the past 24 hours, there has been mention of the passing of a special lady. [livejournal.com profile] thamiris. I did not know her, but I wish I had.

I've spent the latter part of the afternoon and the early part of this evening reading some of her work in different fandoms. Smallville, Harry Potter, Hercules... She was a LOVELY writer.

I'm not a Smallville fan, I think I've only watched the show 2 or 3 times. But the handful of stories I read from her Smallville section of fic were marvelously crafted pieces! Thick with character and emotion and just plain hot sexiness.

And the Hercules stories - there are so many of them! The few I read were sexy and erotic and again, filled with depth of character and just plain beautiful turns of phrases. Describing my favorite - Iolaus - to open one story... There's a warmth to Iolaus, a light, that makes Iphicles want to stand close. Sounds wrong to use words like that, but Iphicles is no poet, and can only describe how he feels. It's not just the hair, either, the yellowness of it. No one can smile like Iolaus, like he's swallowed the sun, and it's shining through his skin. ... OMG, I fall in love all over again.

And the one Harry Potter story I read - Sirius/Remus because that's the fave ship of my wonderful friend [livejournal.com profile] midnitemaraud_r, who guided me into the world of slash - oh, it was SUPERB! I hope I'm not breaking any LJ or internet etiquette by posting this link... The Man in the Moon, is a beautiful piece!

So, I didn't know her, but her writing lives on and has given me some joy today. I can only hope that her work won't disappear from the internet because it is a wonderful legacy.

Blessings on you, Thamiris, may your rest be peaceful.

Just Stuff

So here I am, in the middle of my weeks' vacation and I figure it's probably time for a bit of an Ev update on stuff.

So what have I been up to? )

So, I guess the rest of my vacation will be spent in reading, writing, watching and listening. Add to that, no alarm clock, and it's pretty much a perfect week off, doncha think?



evaine_lj: (Hmmm)
So I'm poking about my flist and [livejournal.com profile] tasyfa harkened back to a meme that was going on in the summer and I thought it might be kind of interesting to try. But of course, there might not be anyone interested either. *LOL* But I'm game if you are.


Ask me anything you want about any of my stories: how I thought of the idea, what I did to write it, what I was thinking when I wrote it, what I feel about it now, what I wish I'd done differently, etc. Or ask any of the characters from particular stories something you want to know, and get an answer from them. Or both.
