So, I'm busy working on my [livejournal.com profile] smallfandom_bb, & I may have just - somehow - signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang. *g*
Yay! I have a McShep AU that's been in my mind for quite a while now.

Oh, & look what the lovely [livejournal.com profile] gblvr is organising to step into the much missed shoes of the SGA Big Bang - [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang!
\o/
I had such a great time the last couple of years, so I'll definitely be signing up when it opens. :-)

We've had a lot more snow overnight (Mr B has just dug the drive out so he can try & get to school) & it's still falling.
Bud & I are off to brave the woods now & then it's back to write more Lionel & Emmett in lovely, sunny California! *g*

I'm terribly behind with things but am so excited to say that [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa is live!
\o/
There are already some gorgeous pieces of art posted, & the fun continues for another couple of days & then it's the grand reveal on 2nd Jan!

I'm so lucky - my Art Santa has made me a lovely McShep song vid!
*squee*

Do go over & check out all the beautiful art & please try to leave feedback for the starving artists. *g*
I can't say if my contribution has been posted yet... I wonder if anyone will be able to guess which is mine? *g*

Oh, & I've received a delightful story from my Santa over at [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa too!
It's an AU, & there's even an extra-special guest star appearance by someone who is extremely close to my heart. I don't know if my Santa knows me or had a look at my LJ but they were so thoughtful! ♥
All the stories have been posted so my contribution is up too. Like with the art, I have no idea if I have a recognisable 'style'. *g*

Just to keep all my ducks in a row, I've posted my art contributions to this year's [livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang over at my fic & art lj.

I was completely honoured to nab [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison as my author & thrilled to create two pieces of art to accompany her amazing story, 'Second Verse'.

Medium: digital manipulation
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Rating: G

1. 'Another place, another time'



2. 'Sunrise'



~


I thought I'd also include a final rundown of all my SGA Advent 'gifts' too. I had such a great time with the advent - thank you so much to everyone who got into the festive and/or McSheppy spirit with me! *g*

*sings - badly*
On the twelfth twenty-fourth whatever day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

Nine McShepguins snuggling )

I've posted my SGA Big Bang story, 'Solitary man' over on my fic & art lj.
Due to the length I had to split it into seven parts, but I have added links at the beginning & end of each part for ease of navigation. (Hopefully they're all going to the right places - my eyes were going loopy with all that coding! *g*)

'Solitary man'
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Rating: NC-17

Summary: John Sheppard was used to being on his own. He'd been booted out of the Air Force, was estranged from his family and was haunted by the guilt of everyone he'd ever let down. Then a wrong turn on a snowy night changed his life forever.

Genre: AU, angst, first time
Warnings: death of a secondary character
Spoilers: none
Word count: ~ 40,700

A snippet:~ )

There's also a soundtrack. ♥

The [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_awards have been announced!
\o/
A huge big congratulations to everyone who was nominated & to all the winners! And a heartfelt thank you to everyone who took the time to vote - & to the organisers for their incredible hard work & effort.
There are several people on my flist who have won - congrats to all! ♥

I'm absolutely thrilled & so grateful to say that I've been lucky enough to be recognised too!
*beams & blushes & generally falls over*
There are some technical issues with the banners at the moment, so I'll have to post them when they're available.
I'm so happy to say though that my story 'Mile marker thirty-six' was voted runner-up in the 'Romance' category, & my art 'Afterglow' was winner in the 'Manip' category!
Thank you so, so much to everybody who nominated & voted for my work! I'm so very grateful. ♥
*hugs*

I've been having a bit of a tough time writing my [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa story this year - I think I might have been distracted by a couple of pesky penguins! *g* But I've finally finished it & am actually kind of loving it now. I just hope my recipient does!

Okay - now I just need to get to work on my [livejournal.com profile] sga_art_santa piece & the rest of my advent gifts! No rest for the wicked, eh? LOL

Another couple of excellent, inventive, satisfying, damn-good-reads from the Big Bang! :-)

Guardian by [livejournal.com profile] tarlanx
OMG! How insanely inventive is this woman? *g* This is such a clever blending of canon with AU elements (The Bermuda Triangle!!) It's a really fantastic action adventure - plus a wonderful love story (quite literally love can change everything!) ♥
It's just beautiful.

Pegasus Purgatorio by [livejournal.com profile] mrshamill
World building on an epic scale, with original characters that you can really care about. This is the story of what happens to John & Rodney when they get trapped in Pegasus after Atlantis evacuates back to the Milky Way. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. (It's a sequel to her short story, And All the Seas.)

My previous Big Bang recs:~
'Hooke's Law' by [livejournal.com profile] zinfic.
'Second Verse' by [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison
'Genesis' by [livejournal.com profile] the_cephalopod
'New Shores' by [livejournal.com profile] velocitygrass

If you do enjoy a story or a piece of art, please do take a moment to leave a comment for the author/artist. It really means so much. ♥

I shall now bury myself back in my sekrit project - ready to go 'live' on Tues 1st Dec! *g*

OMG! [livejournal.com profile] zinfic has written another story in her 'Entangled Particles' universe & this may be the best one ever (which I know is hard to believe because they're all so freaking amazing!)

Run, don't walk to 'Hooke's Law' by [livejournal.com profile] zinfic.
Oh, & don't worry if you haven't read the other EP stories - this one is made completely accessible by the mastery of the Zin's awesome writing.

If you read that & are then stuck for which fabulous fic to choose next, I can thoroughly & whole-heartedly rec three incredible stories that I've already read (as a beta):

'Second Verse' by [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison
'Genesis' by [livejournal.com profile] the_cephalopod
'New Shores' by [livejournal.com profile] velocitygrass

Plus there are masses of amazing pieces of art to lose yourself in.
I still haven't looked at everything yet. Honestly, it's like Christmas has come early!
Yay!

OMG! I have two crazily talented artists who have made the most beautiful pieces of artwork - they're everything that I could have ever imagined or wanted.
I feel so honoured & lucky. ♥
Please do go & take a look (& lavish lovely comments on these two wonderful artists!)

Not long to go now until the whole thing goes live! (Next Thursday-ish, I believe.)

I already have quite a list of stories I want to read after being enticed by their wonderful previews. I also betaed three of the submissions this year & so already know that there are some spectacular stories out there!
Not to forget all the art too! I'm so excited to see what my story inspired. ♥

Hopefully everything will be okay.

The site - with stories & art - goes live on Nov 12th.

I've been a bit busy for the last couple of days - I've been up to my ears (literally) in black fur sewing myself a pair of black Lab ears & a tail for the half marathon on Sunday (cus we're running for the Lab Rescue!)

Our fundraising page: Running for Labs

Bud was very interested in the furry fabric & wanted it for a toy - we compromised by him lying on it while I was working on the floor. *g*

I've also been making tee shirts for myself & Mr B (Mr B didn't want a set of ears funnily enough) with the rescue's details & a pic of the Budster on the back!
Looks like we're all set to go. Yay! Let's just hope the weather is kind on Sunday.

I've also been doing a final, final edit on my [livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang story as it needs to be uploaded next week. Phew! I think it's ready to go.
Oh, and I'm very excited to get my first choice of story to illustrate too (I signed up to be an artist as well as an author.)
