You Are Chandler

You are quirky, smart, and hilarious to those around you. You have an edge that other people enjoy.
People who don't know you may find you difficult to read. You take a bit of time to get to know.

You pay close attention to the world around you. You are very observant and in the moment.
You often have great ideas that others never consider. You are quite creative and inventive.

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.</>

I am going to sing the praises of [ profile] bertee here. Not only does she write prolifically in a whole host of different styles - my favourite is the snarky dialogue she does so effortlessly - and different characters, but she organizes and contributes and recs and is just tirelessly fannish. She organized the heck out of [ profile] spn_j2_xmas, but does huge works for [ profile] spnroundtable and is altogether awesome. I nominate her for a 'Wendy' award, which I just invented!

Day 10

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

So many things... so little time.

1: I would really REALLY love to have a songvid made from the song "Magic" by Bruce Springsteen. It would feature Dean Winchester and be about his journey from reasonably happy hunter through to hell and the apocalypse. If you want to hear the song, go here

2: I'd also love a really cool illustration/Book cover for my story, "Mirror, Mirror"

3: Another vid, because I love music vids. I think the song, "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd fits the Winchester Brothers journey perfectly. It may be out there already, but I haven't found it yet.

4: Someone to write me the story where Jensen and Adam Lambert meet and get it on.

5: Last one, I promise! Demons play a huge part in Supernatural. There's a song out there that I'd love a vid featuring the demons and other evil stuff that Supernatural so inventively throws at us. It's Lunatic Fringe, by Red Rider.

Stick a fork in me, I'm done!

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser-known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom who maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

Ropes 'Verse, by [ profile] skeletncloset

This 'verse makes me drool with sheer lascivious squee. She has a fierce, very toppy Jared and a feral Jensen who is wild and sexy and competent, but just outfaced by the sheer strength of Jared and by his own body. I am waiting for more!

by [ profile] karadin. She does some incredible artwork. She makes wonderful fannish pieces of all kinds, including kaleidoscopes, but I especially love her angel and moose above.

Take 512, by [ profile] weekend_exile

How this amazingly written fic only managed 6 comments total I have no idea. The author is amazing, and quirky and has an encyclopedic knowledge of trivia. She deserves much more love than she's received so far for ALL her fic.

J2 Big Bang

This comm affords me the chance to be creative, to work to a deadline, to make sure that I actually get off my butt and do something once in a while, and then gives me reading material that lasts the whole year til the next challenge.


I've known Lynn and Kathy for almost as long as they have been planning their book, and I am so proud of the way they've progressed. Their interviews are always fascinating and far more in depth than most of the stuff that comes out. Thye are a joy to read, and to know.

The Spn Roundtable

This is a forum that I go to whenever I can for recs of all kinds of media, interviews with authors and discussions about meta. It's a really cool site. Go there and feast!

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator..

I think my very favorite fic has to be this one:

Murder by Space. I like it for a number of reasons. To begin with, it's sci-fi, and then it features my attempt at a Sam-Spade-esque main character. I hope I got the mood right. The whole thing is not finished, and I am finally writing the follow up to it.

I was pleased with this little story too. It's Turnabout and the reason I liked it so much was because of the foreshadowing. I haven't had a lot of experience of weechesters, but I had a lot of fun with eager wee Sammy.

[ profile] spoonlessone is usually my beta, and when she and I got to chatting about the two slasher movies they made during the hiatus way back, we decided that we should do something about Tom Hanniger and Clay Miller, because they seemed to be compatible. The result was a rare pairing, Adult Afraid of the Light. I love the way it came out.

Finally, All in a Day's Work is my favorite guilty pleasure. It's a sad fact that I tend to write outrageous crack, and I think this might be my pinnacle of crackiness - so far at least!
candygramme: (Both personal space)
A - Age: Thrice 21, as I said elsewhere
B - Bed size: Just a double, but, like Dean's, it remembers me!
C - Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathtub.
D - Dog's name: I don't have a dog. I'm a catty person rather than a doggy one. My cat was called Shampoo if that helps.
E - Essential start to your day item(s): A shower, a cup of tea and a banana. If I don't eat the banana, I will get terrible cramps in my legs by the end of the day. Old age leaves a lot to be desired.
F - Favorite color: I like royal blue, and hot pink, and scarlet. I wear a lot of black too.
G - Gold or Silver: Don't make me choose. I'll take it all.
H - Height: 5'8", or 6'1 in my shoes!
I - Instruments you play: Spoons, penny whistle, some keyboards. In my misspent youth I was in a band.
J - Job title: Account manager. I recently gave up my IT manager position because I needed more money. :P
K - Kisses or hugs: Back away from me (unless you're Jensen Ackles!) I am a Brit. My upper lip is stiff. I am so not kissy, and hugs are really not things that I think about. They always take me by surprise.
L - Living arrangements: In a condo right now. It's too small and I don't love it, but husband is sick and can no longer do stairs.
M - Mood: Schmoopy.
N - Nicknames: One friend calls me Spoo, but other than that I don't have one right now.
O - Overnight hospital stays other than birth: Tonsils went when I was 11. I had a couple of kids and then the tube tie. Gall bladder went a few years back. I try not to go to hospitals.
P - Pet Peeves: hypocrisy, greed, dishonesty and Ugg boots.
Q - Quote from a movie: "I love you more than any woman ever loved a rabbit."
R - Right or left handed: Everything to the left. My left footwriting is more legible than my right handwriting.
S - Siblings: I have a brother. My little sister died when I was in my teens.
T - Time you wake up: Unfortunately, 5am... but pretty much every hour and a half through the night too.
U - Underwear: Sometimes...
V - Vegetable you dislike: Beets. Beets have to be the most disgusting thing ever.
W - Ways you run late: I only run late when transit lets me down. I'm notoriously on time otherwise.
X - X-rays you've had: Pretty much every part of me at some time or another. When I was a kid, they used to have machines in shoe shops that you could stick your feet in to see if your shoes fit, I am not kidding. Then they got a clue that X-rays were dangerous. I think my toes glow in the dark...
Y - Yummy food you make: You name it, I'll make it. I love to cook, and I love to bake. Just come over and eat it for me once it's cooked. I'm not kidding.
Z - Zoo favorite: I don't know if it counts, but my very favourite thing to watch, and I can watch them for hours and hours, are splendid garden eels. I belong to the Vancouver Aquarium just so I can go visit with them. They are little, stripey, google-eyed wormy things that live in a hole, and they pop in and out of it without ever leaving, and they just captivate me. I have no idea why. If they don't count as zoo creatures, then ostriches are funny.

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now,(even if we don't speak often or ever) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me.

It can be anything you want - good or bad. :)

When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your journal if you are so inclined and see what your friends come up with.
candygramme: (Default)
It's everywhere:

Post the first sentence (or three) from every WIP you're currently working on, even if it's very short. Then invite people to ask questions about your WIPs. With any luck, the motivation to take that WIP one step closer to completion will appear as if by magic!

Do I have WIPs? Oh, hell, yes.


I grew up in San Antonio.

Momma was a teacher and Daddy was an accountant, and we were your average middle class family, or at least that’s how we looked to the rest of the world. I was the middle child, and I confess that I was kind of a tearaway. I don’t think I wanted for brains, but according to my Momma, I sure lack for common sense. I always laugh and tell her that common sense ain’t that common, and she chases me with a wooden spoon. I guess I was always destined to fly the nest as soon as I was able, but I know that Momma was real disappointed in me when I upped and signed myself on for 8 years in the US Marines.

A lot of kids that sign on don’t actually make it into active service as a recruit, so I think she was holding out hope that I’d stay in the reserves and take an ordinary job, maybe settle down, get married and have kids. When I was recruited, she got a little depressed. I’m not saying she was disappointed in me precisely, but she was a little down for some time.


“For the last time, Jared, No!” Jensen, usually soft spoken and easy going, was getting really tired of the way Jared wouldn’t leave it alone. “I don’t want someone boring holes into my head. I like my brain the way it is, thank you.”

“But it’s so much better for controlling Ladybug. We’d be safer. We could go further out.” Jared was wearing his most soulful, hangdog expression, and while usually that worked on Jensen like a charm, on this one topic it was failing completely. For a moment, Jensen thought that he was going to drop the subject, but then he saw the new idea hit as Jared’s eyes began to sparkle again. “Besides, think of the music you could create.”

Admittedly, that was a low blow. Jensen lived for his music. Guitars hadn’t changed much in the years he’d been in stasis, and although there were genres of music that he couldn’t experience without the neuroports he was so strongly averse to getting, there was enough of the familiar music around that he barely even registered his lack.


"So what did you do with Jensen?" was his first question, once he'd fought his way clear of the suffocating confines of the Padahug to study the man himself. Jared had a newly discovered penchant for black, and wore black jeans, shirt and beanie, with a black jacket over top. Somehow it made his teeth look even whiter than usual.

"He's working today. I had a choice. I could either watch him be all method over my ass, or I could come down to Portland today and annoy the neighbors. I figured that the method thing would depress, and the excursion to see you guys would uplift, so here I am." Jared, always larger than life, was gesturing wildly as he explained, and Chris frowned. He hated to attract attention to himself, and although he and Aldis weren't too well known yet, Jared was.

Fixing Jared with a scowl, he leaned forward, hating that he had to stand on tiptoe to even see the man properly. "Keep it down, son. Don't want the evening to degenerate into an autograph signing session, do we?"


There’s a single cube missing from the box, the empty space mounded with sugar that has drifted into the space. Everyone knows that Jared has a bottomless appetite for sweet stuff. It isn’t quite so well known that Jensen also eats his fair share of sugar.

As his eyes light on the box of sweets, Jensen’s face splits in a smile that crinkles his eyes and turns him from solemn young man to eager boy. His eyes sparkle, and he licks his lips in anticipation. One hand reaches, guitar-callused fingers fumbling, paddling through the drifts of sugar to seize on a cube of Turkish Delight, and take it from the box.

Jeff, who's in the small bathroom, washing the fake blood from his face, hears Jensen enter and turns to greet him. He pauses as he watches Jensen’s face light up and smiles to himself. This will be fun.


“No, please, Dad…”

The man in the bed suddenly sat up, his body taut and far from sleep as the dream woke him.

It seemed as though he’d never be free of this nightmare, would never again have a night without the dream to awaken him, drowning in the horror of watching the inevitable unfold, and knowing that this time, like all the others, he could only watch, unable to do anything useful to avert the tragedy.


He checked his watch. There were only a few more miles before he could turn off the freeway and head towards his West Hollywood apartment. Just as he was thinking that he would make it to the fundraiser on time, the Hyundai’s engine began to overheat, and he pulled over onto the hard shoulder, cursing his bad luck.

Pulling up as close to the wall as he could, he waited for a break in the traffic so that he could leave the car without getting hurt. A huge truck went by, horn blaring, rocking the car and making Jensen shiver.

He really needed to get himself a new car, but his stipend didn’t amount to more than rent and food. It was becoming increasingly difficult to afford the gas for his little old vehicle, and as for maintenance, well, that was a mere pipe dream. Sighing, he took advantage of a lull in the traffic to hop out and go around to the front, so he could open the hood.


Dean tossed Sam the keys and then waited impatiently by the passenger door for Sam to unlock the doors. He got in and waited until they were back on the highway before speaking. "You've got a lot to learn about working as a team, Sammy."

"Yeah? Go on then, Dean. Educate me. I am only an egg, as they say." Sam flicked his gaze over Dean as they accelerated, and smiled a little wryly.

Shifting in his seat so he was turned toward Sam, Dean took his time looking at his younger brother. He could feel the steady hum of arousal throughout his body as his eyes came to rest on Sam's crotch. "For one thing, don't assume you know anything about someone's sexual preference. Secondly, don't try turning someone on in a public place. Thirdly," he reached out a hand and placed it in Sam's lap, "don't start something unless you plan on finishing it."

Why not?

If you feel the love, come tell me. I promise it will make me crazy all through the holidays trying to work out who you are. If you have one, tell me where, so I can go love you too, or maybe write crazed messages and then run away.

I am apparently a raving loony!

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.
