*** THE PARTICIPANT WOULD LIKE TO APOLOGISE FOR THE WIP CONDITION OF THIS LETTER. WHEN SHE GETS SOME TIME OFF TRAINING IT'LL BE FULLY COMPLETED**

Hey!

First of all; kudos on the fabulous taste! I'm so happy we've been matched someway/somehow and I can't wait to see how things work out. This is my second time out of the gate with one of these things so if at any point you'd like some clarification feel free to drop a line :D.

Anyway;

Likes: Canon divergent AU is fine. Character studies and gen are both great along with crack, humor or angst*. Realistic endings are absolutely fine so if things are bittersweet or sad by the curtain call I'm good. Death!fic doesn't bother me and if it fits the piece I'll happily accept it. Tags, hidden scenes and codas within the canon itself. Hurt/comfort Kinks: Threesomes, voyeurism, dub-con, non-con

Dislikes: Generic AUs (coffee shops, high schools, colleges etc), ATG style stories. Issues!fic. Wangst, character bashing. Kinks - scat, watersports, incest, mpreg, A/B/O, necrophilia, underage.

* To be honest I'm super flexible on rating and genre

Onwards

[personal profile] lea_hazel
Contrary to my crappy mood of the last few days, right now I feel pretty great. I was upbeat and energetic when leaving work (a little agitated maybe) and when I got in I took a shower. Which is a fool-proof mood improver. I think it may be time to pick up the slack on some things I'd let slide (out of pure nonsensical angst).

It might be over-ambitious to want to write today. Elevating expectations beyond what is generally reasonable has been a downfall for me in the past. I do have to take care of some smaller/simpler/more urgent things - making sure I have scripts that aren't expired, and other end-of-month chores, plus replying to emails/messages and maybe a few other things that have slipped my mind.

This morning I tried doing my morning pages in Hebrew. It took 40 minutes - double the usual. I do not find this to be an encouraging sign.

My internet is back! Internet, I missed you so!
Last night we got the rain of the century. Another weather record broken, sigh. I'm immensely grateful we're living on the outskirts of town on what passes for a hill in Westphalia... half the city was underwater last night.
Hope all my fellow Northern German flisters are okay, with hopefully dry basements.

 This morning's delima, finish the last hour of Shattered (Iron Druid 07) or set it aside and start Magic Breaks (Kate Daniels 07). I think I will hold firm and finish Shattered.

Wow, it's been ages...

I had a story idea, and my dad told me I should work on my other story ideas first.

I sat for hours writing nothing because I'm not in the mood to work on those stories right now, but then turned around and wrote ten pages in two hours for the story I was, you know, trying to tell him about.

Hopefully I can get all these story ideas done this year. And then maybe have people read them.

I just:

1) made a phonecall to someone I don't know
2) remembered to make the phonecall while they were still open
3) arranged an appointment
4) did the whole thing in German

I will now have chocolate as a reward for doing four very awesome things.

Medical beta?

I used to have several people on my flist with a medical background of whom I could ask medical questions. However, I think most of those people have wandered away from fandom/LJ over the past few years, and for my [community profile] marvel_poc fic (rough draft is finished, yay! \o/) I really need to run a medical scene past someone who has some kind of medical knowledge -- nurse, paramedic, doctor, something like that. It's a field surgery/paramedic scene. I can either ask you questions or send you the scene to look at, and I'd be happy to reciprocate with my own beta-reading assistance, writing you a ficlet if we share any fandoms, something like that.

Help?

Does anyone out there read the webcomic Nimona? (Okay, I know at least one of you does.)

BECAUSE I REALLY NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE ABOUT THE LAST COUPLE OF UPDATES.

So, apparently making joking references to a twenty-year-old Titans story doesn't really work in a current thread on Spider-Man.

Not everyone gets my jokes.

As for why I am annoyed by JMS, I don't know, maybe he's a punk who can't finish a story properly.

"Can we...come with you?" Ugh, ugh, gugh.

Good news/bad news

Bad news: Looks like I got defaulted on Ardor in August. :/

Good news: Thank you, pinch-hitter for taking me on. I'm not a difficult case, I swear... I only want everything! (Yes, yes, my original writer could have defaulted for any/all/no reason. I still feel bad about though.)


Nevermind, I was wrong!

Good news: I posted fic! Well, it's debatable whether this is good news...

Favorite cookbooks!

moetushie: (mystical mumblings!)
[personal profile] moetushie
Friends, I love cookbooks, especially the kind that are more than cookbooks. You know -- stuffed with personal anecdotes, or cooking travelogues. Recs would also be welcome! As for the recipes... While I like reading about esoteric recipes that are far from the mundane, I tend to gravitate towards things that I can actually do. I'd consider myself an intermediate level home-cook -- although thanks to a notable business failure of my parents, I do have access to some pretty advanced restaurant equipment. Lemme show you my mixer sometime, it's wild. (This is not a double-entendre ... Unless you want it to be.)

Okay, if you show me yours, I'll show you mine... That is to say, favorite cookbooks. I've narrowed it down to five (which was hard!), and they are as follows:

Under the cut. )
