I've been quiet, and I have so many unanswered comments, but I had to post holiday greetings (even if I'm a day light by my time).
So yes, Happy Winter Holiday to you (as I know not everyon celebrates Christmas).
Had a lovely day - it finally
rained a decent amount, which is really, really good, the only bad part was that it was too rainy to go out to my cousin's farm for the evening, which would have been nice, but we'll catch up so it's okay. Had a lovely lunch with friends and family :). And got to see some very important online people because of not going out, so it was a win/win in the end.
As for my gifts, see under the cut. Mostly DVDs as I didn't have much else I wanted or needed as I tend to get those things through the year as needed.( Christmas giftsCollapse )
And of course it is yuletide
I got two amazing stories - someone picked up one of my requests for Yuletide Madness as well.http://archiveofourown.org/works/34066
Where He Belongs is Star Trek (Reboot) RPF - Zachary Quinto/Karl Urban and Leonard Nimoy/Bruce Greenwood (which I didn't know I wanted until I read it, omg and now I so want more!) and is hot, sexy and everything I could want from a story involving these four (I went character specific with these four guys, because much as I love Zach/Chris, I wanted something different if this was the yuletide
request that got picked up and I'm glad it was because it's just wonderful!)http://archiveofourown.org/works/37987
Wilson Green is based on the song What's Your Mama's Name? and it's exactly what I wanted from a story based on this song. It's bittersweet, sad, and delves into characters we only hear about for a few lines so, so perfectly. Just beautifully done and captures the song amazingly well.
Also because of the song/album interest in yuletide
I'm considering making a comm for music-based stories. I'm not sure it'd be high traffic but it's one of those things I'd like to see, so I'm thinking of making it. I'd prefer LJ to Dreamwidth at this point, though, and I don't know if that is likely to make a difference.
See next post for your chance to guess what yuletide
stories are mine (I wrote two).
And a few requests. I've heard some songs on TV/in movies that I've really liked, and I was wondering if anyone might have the MP3s (or M4As) of any of them and might be willing to upload? Any version - this is just the artist Google gives me when I search the lyrics, and in one case I have Issues but would be happy to take the original as I really like the song.( Song listCollapse )
And that's the list. Now to make the other post :)
