Nathan Drake thing still alive? Oh Hollywood. Working on Fringe right now. Trying to get my small head around their mythology.

Yay! I love Fringe! It'll be so cool to see Joe! ♥

My current fandom obligations status:

+ [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match art is done! \o/ I just need to sort out the submission info & send it in. Go, Team Sheppard! *\o/*
I had so much fun with the prompt I got. Hee! Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.
Hmmm, I wonder if anyone will be able to guess which piece is mine? *g*

+ [livejournal.com profile] sheppard_hc exchange story has kicked my bum all over the place but the first draft is nearly complete (today, I hope. *fc*)

+ I think I'm going to have to pull out of [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang as the prompt claiming dates have been shifted to accommodate the authors (which I can understand, of course, but now they don't work for me). So, claiming now falls while we're away on holiday. The mods have kindly offered to claim a story for me, but that would mean me having no real choice (you know how it is, you need to read the summaries, etc for yourself.) I've taken part in the last 3 big bangs (all 3 as an artist plus the last 2 as an author, too) so it's a shame, but I don't think I can work around it. :(

+ The SGA Art Shindig & the Five-O Fiesta have both been completed. \o/

I've posted master lists of all the art shared:
SGA Shindig
Five-O Fiesta

Everything ran pretty smoothly, & there was a really great selection of art to enjoy at both comms. ♥

cut for boring health stuff )

And I'll finish by wishing everyone a very happy Friday! :D

Okay, so it looks like I may have signed up as an artist for this year's [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match.
*face palm*
How did that happen?
I've been in SGA fandom for years (before there even was a McShep Match - yes, yes, & I can remember when it was all fields around here, too *g*) & have never taken part & now, somehow, I've signed up. LOL
I'm on Team Sheppard. It's a random assignment, & from what I understand, the idea isn't to pit Rodney against John - it's just something to name the teams. Which is good because in my world view, the boys are always together (& happy & in love!) ♥
I must admit that I don't know many of the names on my team, but I'm sure it'll be fun.

I really need to get all these challenge ducks in a row.

[livejournal.com profile] wordsontongue (writer) due: 1st July

[livejournal.com profile] h5oartvalentine's Art Fiesta & [livejournal.com profile] sgaartvalentine's Art Shindig (artist) due: 11-17th July (need to claim an actual posting day but am waiting like a good little mod to see if there's a gap that needs plugging. *g*)

[livejournal.com profile] sheppard_hc exchange (writer) due: 1st August

[livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match (artist) due: 3rd August

ETA one more (oops!)

[livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang (artist) due: 9th Sept

And we go on holiday on 2nd Aug. \o/

In other news, we saw X-Men: First Class last night. It was awesome!
I don't think it counts as a spoiler to say that it was as slashy as a very, very slashy thing. *g*
Great film - absolutely loved it! And totally squeed at a certain unexpected* little scene. Hee!

*unexpected to me anyway *g*

Happy Monday, folks!

I was also an artist for this year's [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang, & I've posted the art I made over on my fic & art journal for anyone who's interested.

There are two pieces...

Title: 'Leaving Atlantis' and 'Finding Home'
Medium: digital manipulation
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Rating: G

click for art

~


Also, a quick rec for a really lovely McShep series by [livejournal.com profile] toomuchplor called 'How not to fly'.

Author's summary:~

Death and life, hope and hopelessness, aren't just for the Pegasus galaxy. Eventually, inevitably, it's going to happen on Earth. John and Rodney, loss and family and what it means to be home.


This story has everything - angst, humour, romance, heartache &, of course, the all-important happy ending. ♥
I really enjoyed this series & wanted to share.

I've posted my review for 'Time and tide' over at [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang.

It's a bit of fun with some reviews, an 'Ask Lord John: a Q&A with Lord John Sheppard and Doctor Rodney McKay' section & a little puzzle, too. *g*

I'm afraid I didn't have time in my interview to ask all the questions people left for Lord John & Rodney, but thank you & hopefully you'll enjoy what they had to say. ;)

I've just posted my [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang story over at my fic & art journal. :)

Time and tide ~ a love story with interruptions for murder

Lord John Sheppard was no stranger to the business of murder, but he’d hardly expected to find it on a weekend in the country. But murder it was, and what’s more, Rodney McKay was the prime suspect. Can John find the real murderer and, in the process, prove McKay’s innocence? Time is running out, and he’ll need all of his famous sleuthing skills – and McKay’s help – to keep the man he’s falling in love with from the hangman’s noose.

An Atlantis AU written as an homage to the murder mystery novels of the 1930s.

McKay/Sheppard
PG-13
~41,000 words

I've signed up for a review slot for the [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang & am trying to think of what to do beyond the usual story summary, etc.

Does anyone (who's read the story, of course *g*) have any questions that they'd like me to ask Lord John or Dr. McKay? :)

It could be something about the events happening in the story. Or something about their past or where they see themselves going in the future. Or whatever else you might like to know!

I'll certainly do my best to get some answers (if they can stop canoodling or solving mysteries for long enough to listen!) My review is due on the 15th, so could I ask for questions by the 10th please.

Also, if anyone has left a comment over at AO3 & is okay for me to quote it in the review, could you say please. Thank you.
Or if someone wants to add one, of course. \o/

I've spent a very pleasant few hours looking at & commenting on all of the art over at the [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang. There are some really stunning pieces & so many different kinds of art, including fanmixes & song vids.

Atlantis Big Bang 2010 Artwork (41 works)

I've only had chance to read one story, so far, & a very good read it was.
[livejournal.com profile] tarlanx's 'Distant memories'. If you love her 'Architects of Fate' series then do go & read it - you won't be disappointed. :)

I have several more on my 'to read' list. I must say that this is the first time I've really used AO3 & I like it. The 'download' option is brilliant as it offers a range of formats & the PDF style is perfect for my new iPad (an early birthday prezzie! \o/)
I'm going to continue to upload the rest of my fic to AO3 & have everything in one place.

If you do read a story or view a piece of art that you enjoy then please do try & leave a comment. So much work has gone into this big event & sometimes it's easy to get caught up in how much there is to enjoy. I know as an author (& artist) that even the shortest comment can give me a smile. :)

Atlantis Big Bang 2010 Stories (24 stories)

~*~


And... a couple of birthday wishes!
Hugs & balloons & cake to [livejournal.com profile] zooz (for today) & [livejournal.com profile] yarnaddict (for tomorrow)!!
Yay!

Do check out the beautiful art that [livejournal.com profile] mad_lynn has made to accompany it. ♥ ♥

I also have art in the BB:

Companion art for 'The Journey Home: Rodney's Story' by Puddleofgoo

I'm so excited & can't wait to settle down to read & view the lovely art.
Yay!!

Wow, I'm just absolutely tickled by the response to the preview for my [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang story! Thank you to everyone who's checked it out.
*hugs*
Actually, I was feeling a bit glum this morning (I'm the invisible author when it comes to recs - I really ought to be used to it) & then I got a really lovely comment from one of the artists who has chosen to illustrate my story in the Big Bang (so, she's actually read the whole thing!) It really cheered me up. :)

The [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang goes live on Saturday. (25th Sept.)
The previews all look so good & I have a list of stories that I want to read. I'm actually going to be away this weekend visiting [livejournal.com profile] xanthelj, but I'm going to sneak some of her wifi & check out the stories & art as soon as I can! *g*

And in conclusion... boys! ♥
