I haven't been online for the last few days (hiking the Stiperstones, taking Bud to the beach, broadband dropping out, etc, etc *g*) so I hadn't realised that the results were up for this year's GateFic Awards. Luckily, the lovely [livejournal.com profile] hildejohanne & [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison were on the ball & emailed me to say 'go & look'!
*hugs*

Wow... I'm absolutely blown away. I've won three awards!







Thank you so, so much to everyone who took part in the awards process. I'm so touched & can't stop smiling - this has really made my day (week, month, year! *g*)
*hugs*

There were so many amazing stories & pieces of art - congrats to everyone who won & to all the nominees! What a lovely celebration of our shared passion.
I was especially pleased to see [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison's wonderful 'Second Verse' being recognised in the novel length AU category! This is my absolute favourite of her stories. ♥

And if that wasn't enough - Team Sheppard has won this year's [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match!



\o/
Woot! We won!
Go, Team Sheppard, go! *g*

The standard was incredibly high & the result was really close, & Team McKay were gracious & wonderful opponents.
Congrats to everyone involved!
*hugs*

I've just posted my own Match contribution in my fic & art LJ - I wonder if anyone guessed this was mine? *g*

Voting closes over at the [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match on Friday (23rd Sept) so please do drop by & vote.
I'm an artist on Team Sheppard (Go, Team Sheppard!) but I'd hate to try & influence anyone... *g*
Heh, I'm intrigued to know if anyone has spotted which is my contribution. LOL

Also, the prompt posts will be closing over at the SGA Scare & Five-0 Fright challenges today(ish), so hurry over & leave ideas for art you'd like to see. It doesn't have to have a Hallowe'en/scary theme - all prompts are welcome.
And do pop over & sign-up for a posting slot if you'd like to contribute art for either (or both! *g*) fests.







If anyone would like to boost the signal - copy & paste codes are available by following the links above. :)

We're off on holiday tomorrow & have to leave at o'dark thirty, so I'm posting this now.

The [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match will go live while I'm away - please do take a look & try & support all the wonderful writers & artists.

I'm an artist on Team Sheppard. Go, Team Sheppard!! *\o/*
I had tremendous fun with my prompt. I wonder if it'll be obvious which is my contribution? *g*

Okay, got to run...



Take care all. ♥
*big hugs*

Happy birthday to everyone who'll be celebrating while I'm away. ♥

See you in three weeks!

You can find it here, if you fancy a look. :)
I've never done anything like this before.

I've tried to keep it short to avoid anyone falling asleep while reading. *g*

Jane got Mars and I a two-for-one at the groomers! http://yfrog.com/h7jytpdj

Awww, Mars & his dad have matching buzz cuts! *g*

And finally, a very happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] brinian!

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

+ It's so great to see one of our lovely SGA guys doing so well!

Jason Mamoa's new role

+ Also saw a teeny, tiny glimpse of DHew in the new Planet of the Apes trailer. Yay!
I won't be watching the film though - the original film freaked me out so badly as a kid that I've never watched another! Daft, I know - but that's me! *g* In fact, I only skipped to the DHew bit of the trailer!

+ Thanks to anyone who voted in the [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match icon challenge. Unfortunately, Team Sheppard (my team!) didn't win, but it was a close run contest & all the submissions were so great. Congrats to Team McKay on their win.

+ I spent all of yesterday afternoon uninstalling/installing/restoring stuff on my PC because of a problem with logging in (& staying logged in, thank you very much!) to my LJ. Just checked at LJ help & apparently it's on their end. *sigh* I should have checked there first! D-oh! In my defence, I'd recently updated some software & thought that was the issue.

+ Wow! Can't wait for Captain America! How awesome does this look? (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ionaonie for the trailer link.)



+ And all of this is part of me procrastinating & not doing what I should be.
Note: see motivational speaker!John icon for clue. *g*

Happy Friday, folks! ♥

Voting is open over at the McShep Match Icon Challenge.
This is pretty important as the winning team gets an extra few days on their deadline for submitting their stories & art for this year's [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match! \o/

Please check out all the great icons here & do vote. (Anyone can vote - not just participants in the Match.)

There are lots & lots of amazing icons for both teams. Oh, & [livejournal.com profile] chkc made some of her adorable little chibi John & Rodney illos for each team - they're so cute! ♥

Obviously, please do vote for which ever team you want.
I'm on Team Sheppard... 'm just sayin'... *g*

[livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match is having an icon contest.
The team that wins gets an extra few days for the fic & art deadline (so it's pretty important! *g*)

Anyone can take part - you don't have to be participating in the Match.
If you fancy making some icons & helping Team Sheppard (my team! *g*) then please post them 'For Team Sheppard'. They don't have to just be John or say Team Sheppard. They can be anything linked to McShep or Atlantis.
My contribution is here if you fancy a look, & they're completely snaggable.
Just a little silly, hearts-in-their-eyes selection. ♥

Taster:


Either way, do go over & check out all the lovely icons being shared. \o/

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*
