That’s right, I have finally posted another fanfiction story review for your perusal. Enjoy.
Four and a half now! Get them in folks!
Okay, I know this isn’t the most unique post in all of blogdom but it has crossed my mind several times over the last week or so.
What are some of your favorite stories?
Your answer doesn’t have to be one of mine or even in the SVM/TB fandom or even fanfiction at all!
I have published three of my favorites 😀
My favorites from other authors? That’s a tough one because there are so many awesome authors out there that it’s hard to find a favorite!
I Never…Did and All I Want, both by kittyinaz rank right up there with California Kat‘s Un-iverse and Salt Water and Kelpie’s Already Married which is an on indefinite hiatus 😦 and just about anything IDream3223.
It’s even harder for me to choose a favorite book but my fall backs are I Heard the Owl Call My Name by Margaret Craven and Karen by Marie Killillea. More recent books would be The Black Dagger Brotherhood and the first nine books of The Southern Vampire Mysteries/Sookie Stackhouse.
These selections are by no means ALL of my favorites, not by a long shot. They are simply the ones I read the most of, can remember the url’s to without having to go through favorites and, well…there are a lot of criteria, lol.
The books were a little easier because I Heard The Owl and Karen really are in my top five list and have been read many, MANY times since I was a teenager (many moons ago) and the others are more recent favorites although I can see SVM eventually being replaced by something that gives me a more satisfactory ending.
So, tell me, what are some of your favorite books/stories/fanfictions?
First, before I forget, Happy Valentine’s Day.
As some of you may have heard several of us have gotten together to talk about making a site where we can list authors and stories within the Southern Vampire Mysteries and True Blood universe and connect them with the readers who love them so much.
It will be happening in the very near future!
We are, of course, going to have a listing of the different authors but we are also going to be doing fun little bits like perhaps a Throwback Thursday or a Manic Monday, interviews and Spotlights. Perhaps some facts. We’re not sure, yet, what all will be happening once we get it up and going but it will be happening!
We are trying to find ways to contact some of the authors since they don’t have a ‘Contact Me’ page and their fanfiction site is the only way we know of to contact them.
To this end I would encourage all of you to put up a ‘Follow Me’ or ‘Contact Me’ page. It’s really easy and encourages readers to contact you with questions they may not want the general readership to hear. WordPress has even made it easy to do and, the icing on this cake is that your email address is not included in the information. It’s simply a form the reader fills out and WordPress sends it out for them.
The Contact me is the least time consuming to do since it doesn’t require you putting any links in or anything. I think it took me about 30 seconds to do mine and it works great.
I have decided to do the Drabble Contest. It will probably be late next month and will have a short time line, probably about two weeks.
I think that’s it for now.
Have a good day and I will most likely see you tomorrow with another Update of stories which have posted since Wednesday!
Here’s another batch of story updates :). Enjoy.
The Moon by Meridian
Nymphomania is a new story. Sex addiction therapy anyone?
Destination Eternity by dragontraynor
Dirty Dancing by Dream On
Lifting the Veil by Queen of Area 5. This one had me ecstatic! LOVE this story!
Spellbound by wannabewriter25
Sacrifice by IDream3223. Hep-V caused the vamps who had it to mutate as well.
Dirty Laundry by Dirty Lemons
Scratches by Fairytale Amber. It’s a new story that starts when Sookie is laying on the couch in Eric’s office after the maenad attack.
Finally by Virala.
Forget Me Not by kardamon.
Even the Dead Can Scar by magsmacdonald
Tumbling Down the Rabbit Hole by American Android
Cast Iron Hearts by Harley’s Thoughts. It’s a Twilight/Avengers Cross Over.
A Christmas Dream by mommy4thomas. LOVING this story!
Inner by California Kat
It’s Elemental by lilgray1326 and me although it is her original idea and will have an E/S HEA. WARNING: There is mention of cutting and BDSM in this story so if you don’t like or can’t read for whatever reason please do not click the link.
I entered Kittyinaz’s Kill Bill contest. Unfortunately I was the ONLY entry. Fortunately that means I won. I didn’t have the thrill I usually have when the results are announced though.
Clicking the banner above will take you to the kittyinaz site so you can participate in her usually monthly challenges and read her stories (I Never…Did is my favorite)
Clicking Loony Tooney will take you to the story. I will add the custom banner to it once it’s completed.
There IS a warning to go with this one shot, lol.
You will need a funny bone and a box of tissues.
Oh, and if you are a Bill fan you might want to find something else to read :D.
I wrote the whole week of updates, or I hope it was all of them, THEN realized it was a page instead of a post sigh
So, this week you’ll be redirected to the page that stuff is on rather than be able to click from the post, lol.
I haven’t written a spotlight post since July and for that I am very sorry. I have grown lazy it seems, and spent my time on other things. Things which are just as important to me but surely I can do a wee bit of time management?
Any way, the My 2 Cents’ Worth this time is for Deception by MistressJessica1028.
Enjoy it, I know I am.
It seems most of my favorite authors are getting out of the Southern Vampire Mysteries and True Blood fanfiction writing business 😦
They truly have some awesome stories started but now it’ll either be forever until I see an update, or they won’t be updated at all, on some of my favorites stories because they just don’t feel inspired right now or true life is truly biting them in the butt!
The non-inspiration comes from the lackluster ending to True Blood and the absolutely awful ending to the books I imagine but it still saddens me that they can’t find the inspiration.
One or two have found other fandoms to ship and others have decided to totally stop writing altogether.
What a bummer of a way to start off a week off from work :(: finding out that one of my all time favorite fanfics may not be finished at all :’).
Maybe I’ll find something else to write about since I can truly understand where they’re coming from when they say they aren’t inspired to write about Eric and Sookie any more. My own muse has spent more time on vacation in the last year or two than she has actually helping me with plot bunnies and putting words on my screen but I am trying Maybe I’ll find some inspiration in Outlander, at least Sam Heughan inspires some awesome daydreams :D. Seeing him in a kilt and listening to that sweet lilt saying ‘Sassenach’….yeah…
Any way, to those who have stepped back from TB and SVM for now, or forever, I hope you find inspiration somewhere and continue writing.
To those of you who are having life kick you in the teeth may you find strength in the little things and come through to the other side stronger than ever.
Look who’s….got a severely slow connection!
Any way: I entered Sephrenia’s fall Banner Challenge.
The deadline is tomorrow night but I’ve already sent it to her. I even remembered to include the title this time, lol.
There are other challenges coming up, including a Kill Bill. Unfortunately the timeline on that one had to be extended; the story’s done though, I’m just waiting to hear when I can send it in.
Over at Kittyinaz she’s started something truly unique. She’s started something called Anthem of Angels and it will have different contributing authors. It sounds really fun and I’ve started something for that as well.
Hmmm, let’s see: kardamon has two WIP’s: Healed which already has three posted chapters and Forget Me Not, a rewrite of one of her Polish stories, which has seven chapters posted and I just gave eight back to her tonight.
Healed: Season 7. Sookie has a different reaction when she learns Eric is healed. It’s looking good, so far, for a slightly smarter (and less bratty) Sookie although I can’t promise that since I only get one chapter at a time and I don’t have four yet, lol.
Forget Me Not: Interrupts Amnesia Story line. The witches were defeated, Pam had her fun, Jason is missing but something is horribly wrong. The witches curse was lifted, or was it?
MissPharao has one English WIP called Gotta Be Somebody which has five posted chapters with the sixth on the way in the next few days. She also has a German fanfiction listed but my German is non-existent so I can’t tell you how it is.
Gotta Be Somebody: A different Eric, a different Sookie.. Eric is more than we ever thought and Sookie’s out to kick butt and take names. Let’s see if Fairy Sookie comes out to play.
I’m sad that Outlander (wipes drool off mouth at the thought of Same Heughan in a kilt) has hid the mid season hiatus :(.
What is it with Mother Nature? Summer sucked! We had maybe two weeks of summer like weather right up until September 23 THEN teh warm weather decided to hit? WTF? I’m enjoying the warm weather while I can but really, 75+ degrees at the end of September?
