Many, many thanks to whoever nominated the following of my works for the [livejournal.com profile] wicked_awards.

Fic:

Title: Mr Broody and The Vengeance Demon or The Ship That Never Sailed
Fandom/Pairing: AtS, BtVS; Angel/Anya
Categories: I've Got You Under My Skin(best het)

Title: She Can Be. She Will Be. (AO3) (On LJ here.)
Fandom/Pairing: Doctor Who; 11th/River Song
Categories: Partners in Crime(best het)

Meta:

Title: 'Apocalypses on BtVS' or 'Why Buffy smiled'
Fandom/Pairing: BtVS
Categories: Not Fade Away(best essay/meta)


(Slightly puzzled by the first one, if I'm honest. 'She Can Be. She Will Be.' is one of the fics I am most proud of, ever, but the Angel/Anya one was just written for fun. And is in dire need of editing... It's so old. BUT. I am very very grateful, and surprised. Thank you again, mysterious benefactor(s)! ♥)

Thank you LOTS AND LOTS to whoever nominated my stories (I've got two in the running), and I'll make sure to link to the awards once they're live.



(Long day at work. But nice too, since I decorated the Christmas tree. :D So it's been a good day all round.)

Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] infinitewhale and [livejournal.com profile] skybound2 for yesterday and to [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri today!!! Hope the coming year will bring you much joy!

****

Holiday is lovely (if a bit rainy) and I was very cheered by two further nominations in the Crossing Over Awards: One for 'Best Portrayal of Buffy' in 'My Immortal' and one for 'Best Portrayal of Other Character' - in this case Illyria in 'Between Canons'. *squees muchly*

****

Finally, for those that like some Doctor/River UST, go read [livejournal.com profile] promethia_tenk's Chances of Rain. (I love weather. All weather. And when it comes to weather, nothing is sexier than a thunderstorm. So in honor of August, have some smoldery-ness.)

Thank you SO SO MUCH to the kind person who nominated 'My Immortal' in the Crossing Over Awards (on Twisting the Hellmouth)!!!

*does a happy dance*

(Times like these are the only times when my moodtheme lets me down. Ianto doesn't really do 'ecstatic'... And if he did, it'd be deeply disturbing - and kinda ADORABLE. You've all seen Ianto's rap right?)


And you don't need to say it. I KNOW you want that sequel...

Someone nominated Mrs Saxon's Diary at the Children of Time Awards! *does the Numfar Dance of Joy*

So I went and picked up a gorgeous banner, look! (Yes it has Jack on it, rather than Lucy, but they didn't have any with her, and he *does* feature in the story, so...)

title or description

I'm especially pleased because the fic is one I'm very proud of, and one that never got much love. THANK YOU SO MUCH mysterious nominator, I wish I knew who you are so I could thank you properly!

(If anyone's curious, you can find the fic here on the Teaspoon, and here on LJ.)

elisi: (Obama by kathyh)
Firstly, my TW/DW fic 'What Torchwood needs, right now, is a Doctor!' (on LJ here, on the Teaspoon here) has been nominated in the Children of Time Awards! (There's a gazillion nominees, so I'm not going to win anything, but I hardly ever get nominated so I'm all a-squee! Thank you SO MUCH whoever was so kind as to put me forward!) ETA: Got myself a banner! :)



Then a few more Obama-related things, and then I swear I'll leave it all alone. Under the cut that gorgeous picture of the President and his Chief of Staff - mostly for my own sake. (ETA: [livejournal.com profile] obama_daily has a whole set of First Day at work photos.) It still makes me want to pinch my arm to check that I'm not dreaming. Oval Office is shiny. )

Andrew Sullivan wrote about the speech here, and had me nodding along.

And here is another one of those things that that makes me wonder if this whole thing isn't written by Aaron Sorkin: Remarks By The President Welcoming Senior Staff And Cabinet Secretaries - 1/21/09. ("Let me say it as simply as I can: Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency." He doesn't just say it - he's actively putting measures in place to enforce it.)

Anyway, I should probably point out that I do not agree with all of Obama's policies, and I'm sure he'll screw up sooner or later. Which reminds me that I ADORED Changefest '09 (The Daily Show). Too many hilarious things to quote, although I loved Jon's poor forlorn face w. the tooter! And [livejournal.com profile] anais_rhys put up the special end credits to The Daily Show from 1/19/09. (Not for Bush fans...)

Still, mockage can never be as funny as unintentional misuse of words... (Keep liquids far, FAR away. Best case ever of 'I don't think that means what you think it means'!)



And now I must run, this took FAR TOO LONG! Lots of love to you all! *smooches*

Hello there! Sorry I'm not around much, but RL is rather busy right now I'm afraid - especially since we're at the beginning of a 2 week half term holiday! Expect me to overindulge now and again to keep sane!

Anyhoo, yesterday was fun! As you might remember, I'm following 'Arbitrar Of Quality's reviews of the Buffy verse as he posts his impressions. This weekend it was the turn of 'Primeval' (and later 'Restless' and 'To Shanshu in LA'). The threads started out fairly pedestrian, with people complaining about the season arch and Adam etc. Then someone pulled out this bit from the review:

Seriously, how many times are the good guys going to let Spike live for
no reason other than the actor has a contract? This is getting
ridiculous.


And off they went! (match + dynamite...) There are now... [checks]... 238 comments! Hee! So I spent a good deal of time yesterday aguing with people over Spike - why he was allowed to live, whether it was all the writers fault for being STUPID, or pandering to the audience etc etc. Since I never did this back in the day (what with not knowing that fandom existed) it felt like catching up on something. But - it wasn't just trying to get leopards to change their spots (because that just ain't going to happen, sadly), but something like a long battle for AOQ's opinion. And... we won! (see - told you I was twelve! *g*) he even responded to one of my comments, which makes me extra pleased:

My comment:
> Buffy kills vampires - it's her job description. Spike is the only
> chipped vampire she's ever encountered, hence he's different. The fact
> that she doesn't kill him might be a misjudgement (and Giles clearly
> thinks so), but _she_ obviously doesn't think of Spike as dangerous
> anymore.

AOQ's reply:
That's really the rub, I think. After reading the discussions, you
guys have convinced me that *Buffy* doesn't see Spike as an immediate
threat, and it's not in her nature to kill monsters who aren't
immediate threats. Sme have pointed out that Spike not being able to
attttack humans doesn't mean that he's harmless. Which is true, but
Buffy is very direct-combat oriented, so that's how she sees things.
She's pretty much wrong, but it's consistent with the way she's been
characterized throughout the series so far.


I am soooooo sad! Hee!

But - I have another reason for happiness, in that 'It was... a hello' was nominated at the
title or description
in the categories Angel, Buffy and Hero/Heroine.

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

*dances*

So - even though the house is messy yadda, yadda, yadda, I'm a happy bunny this morning! :)
