[livejournal.com profile] sgamadison has written the most wonderful fic for the Ten Years Later fest.
Do check it out - you won't be sorry! ♥

A Modest Proposal

*happy sigh*
bluespirit: (SGA McShep Time & Tide)
Well, I'm only three months late, but I've finally posted my contribution to last year's sga_art_santa in my fic & art journal.
*face palm*
My recipient was the lovely [personal profile] mella68  who has a fondness for historical AUs & McShep - two of my favourite things!
So, I decided to go for a romantic 1920s piece that was also quite festive (lots of snow. *g*)

Note: The boys aren't necessarily Lord John & Rodney from Time & Tide - but they certainly could be! *g*

Teaser (clicky!)

Teaser for World, far away art


And I must rec the simply gorgeous piece that the wonderful & talented [personal profile] neevebrody  made for me as my Secret Santa.  It's called 'An Invitation for Christmas' & is an AU with a young!John&Rodney spending Christmas in their first apartment together.
*squee*
It's divine.  ♥

I know it's been ages, but if anyone didn't check out the sga_art_santa submissions for 2012 then please do.  We had the most amazing selection again, & I was so proud to be modding such a talented bunch of great artists.

[info]zoemathemata got in touch with me a while ago & asked if I would mind if she wrote a story inspired by my American Romance Library book cover, 'Safe Surrender'.


Teaser for 'Safe Surrender' art:
With a mob boss out to kill him, Rodney McKay has one last hope: maverick U.S. Marshal, John Sheppard...


I was very happy to say yes & am absolutely thrilled to be able to link to (& rec) 'Safe Surrender - the fic'!
Hooray! \o/

Do check it out - it's a really, really great read & is everything that I could have hoped for when I made the book cover - & more!
(And please do remember to leave [info]zoemathemata lots of lovely feedback!) :)

Happy Valentine's Day! ♥

I hope everyone is having a lovely day.  Mr B is on holiday this week, so I'm not online too much - just enjoying having him at home all day & spending time together (with the Budster! *g*)

The Valentine's Day fests at [livejournal.com profile] sgaartvalentine & [livejournal.com profile] h5oartvalentine are going wonderfully with today being the final day of posting.  There have been some gorgeous pieces of art posted & I'm still enjoying catching up with them all.
I do have to give a shout out to one in particular though as it was dedicated to me! \o/

Family Portrait by [livejournal.com profile] velocitygrass

It's a wonderfully romantic John/Rodney little snapshot - with a very special guest star! *g*

My own contribution to the SGA fest is an addition to my American Romance Library.

Teaser for 'Law and Order':

Oh, & I must say a belated happy birthday to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] berryann!
I'm so sorry I missed your special day - I hope it was filled with wonderful things.
*hugs*

And thank you to [livejournal.com profile] hildejohanne & [livejournal.com profile] winter_elf for the lovely glass hearts decorating my profile page!
*hugs*

bluespirit: (LotR Xmas Men & Elf)
I spent most of the morning at the dentist & am now very, very sore but in possession of a new crown & a filling. On opposite sides, of course, so I can't really chew anywhere & it hurts all over. :(
Never mind, Mr B & I started our Christmas rewatch of the LotR trilogy (the extended eds) last night, so now I'm looking forward to settling down later for The Two Towers (my favourite of the three.) \o/

Also, posting is almost over at [livejournal.com profile] h5o_art_santa & [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa & there's so much beautiful artwork to enjoy. I'd like to rec the gifts that I received because they're both beautiful:

+ A Festive Collection for Five-O with a couple of very cute & funny pieces & also a very suave looking 'prezzie' under the tree. *g*

+ Elf Angel for SGA. OMG! It's elf!John & angel!Rodney & it's the cutest, most adorable thing I've ever seen. I love it! ♥

And if you're into Suits - or not (I've never seen an ep) then my sweet & lovely [livejournal.com profile] xanthelj has written a gorgeous feel-good, Christmas-y fic, 'The Christmas Tree' - with a cameo by certain decorations from our tree! Hee!

I hope everyone is well & happy.

+ Here's an adorable, happy-making story! ♥

The Scrapbook by darth_stitch Steve/Danny, Gracie

Author's summary: A series of loose, interconnected little ficlets on Steve, Danny and of course, Grace. And Grace's school homework accidentally outs Steve and Danny to the islands.

+ Steve & Danny as build-a-bear bears! OMG! Too cute!

Bear Hug by [livejournal.com profile] cen_sceal

+ A hauntingly beautiful Vegas!John song vid. ♥

+ [livejournal.com profile] xanthelj came to stay for the weekend & we had the most fabulous & pink & sparkly time!
And the ever lovely [livejournal.com profile] hildejohanne had flowers delivered for us both! Thanks again, Hilde - that was just so thoughtful. (And thank you for my virtual balloons, too. I love balloons! \o/)

+ [livejournal.com profile] xanthelj has sent me a gorgeous Moonpig card with this pic from the GQ photoshoot on the front... *guh*



The way he has his thumb dragging across his lip & that open-legged sprawl...
*combusts*

+ An art rec! The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] crysothemis has done the most beautiful sketch of John & Rodney having fun in the tub! ♥
It's so happy-making! ♥

And a duck by Crysothemis (John/Rodney)

+ I'm deleting my Twitter account. I've really never got the hang of it & haven't really used it.
I'll just stalk follow Joe & David, etc through the twitter feeds. :)

Speaking of which...

dhewlett:

Back from a fantastic day at Palace Flanigan! Wonder how long it'll take him to figure out all his computer's and ipad's new passwords? :-)

I'd have to pronounce this Rapture an epic fail...which is good since I spent it with @joeflanigan!

LOL I love the way these two tease. ♥

+ A quick reminder that nominations for the Gatefic Awards close this Saturday (28th May), so there's still time to make sure your favourite stories & art are included. :)


Happy Wednesday to all! ♥
*hugs*

bluespirit: (5-O Steve & Danny cute look)
Bulletpoints of love!

+ Thank you [livejournal.com profile] winter_elf for my shiny tinfoil hat! LOL

+ There's a fabulous new fic from [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison that is sweet & funny & just totally great! (And I am in no way biased because of the mention of a certain person who is very close to my heart. *g*)

Dog Day Afternoon by [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison (McShep)

+ I went for a really good run last night. My best yet since the knee surgery. I'm still keeping the distance low (this was only 3.6 miles) but I pushed the pace & was really pleased with how it felt. I, um, may have signed up for the Cardiff Half Marathon in the autumn. *g* Even with me having to have my other (non-running related) surgery in a few weeks, I should hopefully have plenty of time to build up the mileage again & be ready for the race. I've really missed doing long distances. A nice 15 miles or so by the water on a Sunday morning is such a joy, & I can't wait to get back to it. :)

+ An extended trailer for next week's 5-O has been released! \o/

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.

So, I was feeling a bit down, & my wonderful Angel, [livejournal.com profile] lantean_drift, wrote McShep for me. ♥
It's a beautiful, feel-good ficlet with the boys being so perfectly them that you just want to snuggle them.
*dreamy sigh*
