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.

[livejournal.com profile] sidewinder you rock!! Not only have you run another successful [livejournal.com profile] xmas_rocks and made a whole slew of people as happy as squeeing puppies, you wrote me a WONDERFUL story of drummers!! I had a feeling it was you; your facility with dialogue, your unique story-teller's voice, that it was drummers treated so lovingly - it all felt like you. The detailed knowledge of the artist's tools was the icing on the cake. I think I must have read it at least 10 times by now and I love it each and every time. So THANK YOU again! *HUGE HUGS*

Then there's this which I lifted from [livejournal.com profile] silentinflames...

Your Word is "Love"

You see life as possibility to form deep connections with a few people.

Relationships are the center of your world, and you always take time to bond with those you love.

You are caring and giving. You enjoy helping those you love.

And when it comes to romantic love, you feel passionately ... even in a very long term relationship.

Why do I hear the Beatles' All You Need Is Love in my head right now? *LOL*

Today I hope to write. Thanks to Xmas Rocks as well as discovering a wonderful DC author over the hols, my muses seem to want to return from their sojurn down in Rio. *crossing fingers* Let's hope so!

So I wish all my flisties a calm and relaxing Sunday, doing whatever they WANT to do, not what they HAVE to do!

I forgot to post my happy thing for yesterday - Day 2. Great way to start, huh? *RME*


My happy thing for yesterday was that I had the house all to myself. Michael has gone to spend the weekend at his dad's, to celebrate his little half-sister's 10th birthday, so the place was all my own. Well, mine and the dog's. *LOL* To make it even better, I didn't have to go out in the ARCTIC temeperatures and stayed warm and snug within my walls all day long.

It was really nice.

[livejournal.com profile] screwthedaisies tagged me for the 8-days meme. The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day. Tag 8 people to do the same.

Well I don't think that there are 8 people left on my flist to tag. *LOL* So... if you've not been tagged by mutual LJ friends, please, meme away!

I have two for today. I guess I can do two, huh?

First off - I'm on VAYKAYSHUN until January 6th! Oh God, it feels SO good!

Secondly, one of the gals at work gave me a little Christmas present today. A lovely, extra-soft, hand-knitted scarf. It took me quite by surprise! She'd been showing off her handiwork to one of the other girls in the office, and I happened to mention that after the holidays, I'd love it if she'd make me one in shades of greens, browns and khakis and I'd pay her for the wool. Well, today, my last day at the office before the holidays, she left one - brightly wrapped - at my desk. I got all teary-eyed. It really touched me.

You Are Christmas

More than most people, you are able to find magic in life's small moments.
Traditions mean a lot to you, and you tend to be quite nostalgic.
You are a giving, kind person who really understands the true meaning of holidays.
You inspire others to be as altruistic and caring as you are.

What makes you celebrate: Tradition and a generous spirit

At holiday get togethers, you do best as: The storyteller. You like to recount memories with everyone.

On a holiday, you're the one most likely to: Give a gift to everyone you know

From Chez [livejournal.com profile] sidewinder:

Comment here and I'll give you a band (you can pick a music genre for me to choose from, or not). Then you list your ten favorite songs by that band in your lj.

The band that 'Winder gave me was Green Day

10 fave songs and some reasons why )

God, that was tough! I love so many of them.

And all in all, it's the Green Day sound, the slight boppiness even in the angriest or saddest song that I love. And Billie's voice, if I haven't mentioned it enough. *LOL* That's what first attracted me to Green Day way back when and why I still love them.

Evaine, your pirate name is

You Should Be a Film Writer

You don't just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind.
You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to life.
Chances are, you enjoy creating all types of stories. The joy is in the storytelling.
And nothing would please you more than millions of people seeing your story on the big screen!

Well... okay. *grin* I can live with that.

evaine_lj: (Rock Star Moment Lars)
Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] jetblackmirror and thought it might be fun...

Comment with one of my fandoms, or a character/pairing in a fandom, and I'll reply with anywhere from 1 to 5 songs (depending on the level of hopeless obsession) that remind me of that fandom/character/pairing, as well as an explanation as to why I connect it with that band/show/book/etc.

It's the weekend, folks!!
evaine_lj: (Feeling It Lars)
Gacked this baby from all over the flist -

List seven songs you are into right now, no matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Livejournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

Sanitarium - Metallica - It has slowly crept up my favorite Met songs list until now, it's one of my top 3. I love to blast it at full volume in the parking lots of malls with the windows down and scaring the mundanes. *LOL*

The Ecstasy of Gold - Metallica - New Met, 'nuff said.

Working Class Hero - Green Day - This is one of the best remakes of any Beatles/Lennon songs EVER.

This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race - Fall Out Boy - It's my shame. *blush*

Rock, Hallelujah - Lordi

Fade To Black (acoustic version) - Metallica

No Cars Go - The Arcade Fire

If there's anyone out there who hasn't done it and wants to - have at it, chums!! *grin*
evaine_lj: (Flamingis - Did You Know)
I saw this in [livejournal.com profile] sidewinder's journal and it looked like fun.

Comment and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list 10 of your favorite songs that begin with that letter.

'Winder tagged me with an 'E" for Evaine. So... in no particular order...

1. Ecstasy of Gold - Metallica (cover of Ennio Morricone)
2. Every Breath You Take - The Police
3. Elvis on Velvet - The Stray Cats
4. Extrordinary Girl - Green Day
5. Every Time I See Your Picture - Luba
6. Edie (Ciao Baby) - The Cult
7. Enter Sandman - Metallica
8. Everlong - Foo Fighters
9. Evenflow - Pearl Jam
10. Every Little Thing She Does is Magic - The Police

Well, that wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. *grin* I could have added another 5 easily.
evaine_lj: (Lars Hugging His Knee)
A few folks on the flist have been doing this, so I figured what the hell.

Name one character from any fandom I know and I will give you at least three facts about them from my personal canon.

As [livejournal.com profile] looking_spiffy said, "It might stir up the muses.".
