Woohoo! And an Update! And a Happy Birthday, too!







First off, a huge thank you to whomever was responsible for this awesomeness:


Category: Steve/Danny Romance


This is seriously cool. I've never been nominated for anything and, even more seriously, I never friggin' win anything. Heck, even with Rrroll up the Rrrim (Tim Horton's annual festivus of win), I'll be lucky to get a free coffee. My Canuck readers will appreciate that more, I'm pretty sure. However, ever since I started writing Slash Fiction (see what I did there? Heh!), Rrroll up the Rrrim takes on much, much dirtier connotations.

*sigh*

(Hello Handbasket of Hell, is there a place for me in there? Yeah, I thought so.)

Click on the banner to read and, if you like it, go vote!!! Voting info can be found at [info]ohana_favorites

In a nutshell: Voting began March 18 and ends April 15, 2012. I would appreciate the support. If nothing else, there's some awesome fic nominated, so go gorge on some hot McDanno action :o)




Now, for an Update (and yes, I feel it warrants capitalization):

For all those of you who have been reading my fics and commenting (and re-reading and commenting) and sending me messages and gifts (awww!): 

A heartfelt THANK YOU!!! 

You're wonderful and it makes me feel so good to hear from you. My life's been a bit of a whirlwind lately what with moving to a new city and starting a new job and breaking my leg (and not in the good-luck-on-stage/screen sort of way). My muse hasn't had a leg to stand on either (and I haven't had a real one to spare), so I'm behind in all things J2-related.

For those of you who were nice enough to ask: Yes, I was supposed to post my version of Disney's Enchanted for the j2_everafter challenge. It didn't get done in time but the mods were cool with me claiming the same flick for spn_cinema. So, it's coming. I promise. (I hope.) Also, it's a bit crazy-creepy-cracky-weird and I have no idea if people will like it but, whatever, I'm a slave to my muse and hopefully she knows what she's doing.

I did sign up for BB2012, and I'm going to try to finish the follow-up to The Courtship of Jensen's Co-Star - Romancing Jared's Roommate - for this challenge. Then again, who knows? RL seems to be getting in the way of my writing these days. I think it may have something to do with having a full-time job again ;o) Anyway, RJR will be finished and it's not so much a sequel as the story from Jared's POV, but it will take events a bit further into the future. The Epiphany series (set in the Courtship Verse) has two more parts (outsider POVs) that I will post in the coming weeks.

I have three more fics in the works: one is short-ish and stemmed from watching way too many episodes of Love It or List It, the other was from watching just one episode (ever) of Four Weddings (don't ask, IDEK, my leg was broken and I couldn't run away), and the other is a big-fic that takes our dynamic duo into the heart of the Canadian Arctic. Yes, you read that right. It's also going to be my first foray into "case-fic". Wish me luck! I'm going to use this as my stepping stone into writing some Sam/Dean. I can't not write Wincest. I just can't. It's just that there are so many gripping/moving/amazing stories out there and I just can't seem to shake my insecurity and feelings of inadequacy. If I'm going to write Sam/Dean, I want to do them justice. Besides, if i'm going to hell anyways, I may as well go all the way, right? Riiiight.

Jays2: Yes. Soon. I mean it this time! Before the end of the 2012 baseball season, there will be updates! Even if only to put in my RL Blue Jay hotties, JP Arencibia and Brett Lawrie, who have their own brand of epic bromance going on (as documented here).

For those of you who loved Falling Feels Like Flying (in a Vee), look for a timestamp in the coming months!

FYI #1: The Play Nice Proviso has been translated into Russian! It's not completed yet, but 10 parts are up. Find it here! A big thank you to slavyanka for her efforts! I'm just glad people want to read it; any language is fine with me. It still blows me away how much everyone enjoys PNP. Thanks, y'all :o)

FYI #2: The Discovery of Jensen Padalecki has just been podficced by the lovely yourrighteye. Find it here!


Also, I was doing some housekeeping around this fic comm and I came across a little 'verse I had started when I first started writing J2. It hasn't been updated in ages because, quite frankly, I forgot about it. There is more to the tale, however, and I was just wondering if there's any interest out there - should I finish it? I'll probably polish up what I've already posted and finish it if y'all reckon I should. The story's called Out of the Shade and into the Sun. Which reminds me of another forgotten story that's halfway done: anyone interested in reading J2 Non-AU amnesia!fic? 

Umm, that's it. If I haven't responded to your comments/messages, rest assured, I will. Count on it. I'll just be a little delayed doing it! If you ever need to get in touch with me, feel free to email me at qblackheart(at)gmail(dot)com. Cheers!

Finally - this little fic comm turns two today!!! It was born on March 29, 2010, just so I would have somewhere to post PNP. It's been a great two years and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say: Thanks so much for watching and joining and keeping up with me and my muse! I appreciate your readership and the time y'all take to review and comment and send me your thoughts and love and it absolutely tickles me pink when you point out your fave lines and scenes in my stories and flood my dash on Tumblr with quotes and recs and OMG y'all are FANTASTIC!!! I can't tell you enough how much I value the friendships I've made because of my stories! (Thanks to the epic awesomeness and our mutual love of J2!) I adore you all!

Much Love!
