I did it! I really, really did it!

I got second place, twice, in The Villain’s Turn contest with The Men In Black! WOOT!


most original storyBest Villain Created


I am so happy. And proud! And thankful! And very surprised! I enter these contests for the fun of it and to try and coax my muse back from her very extended vacation. It seems she comes back and considers my little stories the vacation. Maybe she’s living with somebody else and comes back to me when I have an idea she considers worthy?

Anywho, this is my first original story. I hope you enjoy it.

The Men In Black wouldn’t have even gotten off the ground without my boyfriend, Breathes. He’s the comic guru in this apartment. I told him about the contest and he was off and running. Thank you Breathes for putting up with my insanity while writing.

Thank you also goes to Natsgirl1 for giving it the once over for me.

Most especially though, thank you to The Darkest Falling Star for conceiving this contest and The Non-Canon Awards for hosting it.


Hugs and kisses to everyone who voted for my little story.



Updates 6-17-15

This will be my last Updates post here at SVM & TB stories. I will continue to post them at Fanfiction Minions so you all can keep up on your stories :). I will still post the odd review, reblog or Press This and I will continue to let you know about contests and votings but posting the same thing on two sites is a little redundant so, since Fanfiction Minions was set up to let readers know about updates in multiple fandoms that is where I will continue to post them :).

What will I be doing here instead? Glad you asked. I’m going to get caught up on all those recipes taking up space in my inbox. And all those book reviews as well. I’ll also hopefully be able to do some writing, continue on with my beta work and hopefully spend some time on This ‘n That and get it up and running again.

It’s been a blast getting all these updates out to you but it’s time I move on to other things…still within what this site was set up for. Who knows. Maybe I’ll be able to find other Eric and Sookie related stuff to send on to you 🙂 ;).

The NonCanon Awards Review: Back and Forth

California Kat Every Contingency

Summary: An SVM what-if—How would’ve Sookie’s and Eric’s fates been different if Bobby also delivered a message to Sookie when he delivered the knife that would pledge her to Eric? What if Eric explained the situation to Sookie so that she wouldn’t feel like he’d manipulated her into pledging? Will she choose to pledge? Or will she get the hell out of Bon Temps to escape all the vampires in her life? (This “SHORT” is inspired by ncmiss12)

Biting My Thoughts Connected By the Soul

Updates: 5-24-15

First off I want to thank Gyllene and 4padfoot for accepting my offer to continue the awesome work they started on Fanfiction Minions. I will be starting the posts this coming Wednesday, May 27, 2015 and continue them twice a week. Anything posted on the Minions Facebook Page from 12:01 am EST Sunday, May 24 to midnight May 26/27 will be included in the update.

Just as a little help: midnight my time is 9:00 pm PST,  5:00 am in parts of Great Britain and at least parts of Germany and about mid afternoon in Australia. I am -5 hours GMT. And that’s the extent of my time differences knowledge, lol.

Here’s a tool to help you figure it out if you aren’t sure.

This is a new endeavor for me so it will take some time to iron out the kinks in my own system so I can get a posting day down pat.

Until the message reaches everyone it reached before I will be including the wordpress and fanfiction dot net authors I receive in my email inbox so I don’t send out empty emails.

I visited 4padfoot’s website for the first time yesterday and she has some AWESOME work! Visit her, you won’t be sorry and I KNOW you all have visited Gyllene’s site, since you read her, right? Right?

Summary: We all have a little darkness within all of us. A darkness that lies inside, waiting for us to give in… It won’t let you though, not until you’re willing…

and Twilight/Supernatural Charmed

Summary: She was tired of being used, betrayed; let down by those she cared about. She was tired of anything having to do with putting trust in anyone but herself. Trying her damndest to hold in her tears, she knew it was only a matter of time until her efforts would be useless. Originally a one shot, but will be a multi-chapter.

Dirty Lemons Lay Low

Summary: Sookie’s been down on her luck and when her car needs repair, she ends up with job at a local garage. She’s the only female in a frat house environment and ends up becoming friends with Eric, the service writer. That friendship quickly evolves into something more but it’s not easy to keep things quiet in a small town like Bon Temps. It’s even harder at work, but they’re going to try.

Updates: 5-17-15

First first: This update covers the month of April. To all the authors listed in this update: I am sorry about ALL the link approvals you’re doing but that is the only way I can link to you. There should be only one more mass update which SHOULD get us current up to this Wednesday, May 20. After that I am HOPING  to get back on track and do the updates twice a week. Once again, sorry for all the approvals you’ll be doing.

First I want to introduce you to something I had a small hand in getting off the ground. I have mentioned it a few times and then my life took a left turn at Albequerque and it’s taken me a while to get back in the groove. Fangbangers Anonymous. It’s a listing of authors in the Southern Vampire Mysteries and True Blood Fandom who use WordPress to showcase their stories. There are a lot more authors than I actually realized, lol.

Next I want to show you Fanfiction Affliction which is a listing of different fandoms and stories in those fandoms. The site is live but the database is not complete yet so if anybody out there has any stories or is aware of any which are not listed you can contact the admins to see if they have it, know of it, etc.

Voting for The You Want Blood Awards is happening now! There is unlimited voting, once each day if you want, and is ongoing until May 22. I’m up for the Eagle Eye Award, Natsgirl is up for New Comer award and a couple of others, kardamon is up, kittyinaz, California Kat, kinnik, kleannhouse and a whole host of other awesome authors, banner artists and betas. Please, go vote and may the best in their category win!

Now, on with your (formerly) regularly scheduled update.
