This journal is now mostly friends only

Any fandom-related posts will remain unlocked, but anything personal will now be only viewable by people whom I consider friends. If you want to be added to that list - and trust me, I understand if you don't, I can be hard work... - please comment on this post!

I do have a Twitter account and a Facebook account. I have chosen not to associate either of those with my LJ. Please abide by my decisions and do not cross link any of my non-public posts or commnets.

Here for fic and/or graphics? All of them are posted over at fandomsbitca - feel free to watch the comm! I'm also in the process of uploading my fics to Archive Of Our Own

I've voted.

Have you?

This was always going to be a close one, but with 97% of the population of the nation registered to vote in this referendum every. single. vote. is going to count.

So last week velvetwhip messaged me asking if the WKA winners had ever been announced, to which my immediate was of course they had. Only it turns out they hadn't because even though I'd uploaded the banners that was all I had done. So I coded up the site and... Forgot. Again.

I'm so sorry this is a year late!

Music is a big part of my life. Like… huge. And you may have noticed that I tend to share my love for powerful lyrics here, whether by using them as post titles, posting lyrics, or making fanmixes. (And if you haven't noticed: Hi. Haaaave you met Sho? *g*)

Anyway, in exactly six seven months and one day's time I celebrate a milestone birthday and I thought what I'd do is compile a CD's worth of songs that have and still do mean an extraordinary amount to me and put them up here in a six month prompt-athon.

I'd love it if y'all would take a look and if something here (or hell, all of it!) inspires you to create something please link me to the end result. No matter the fandom, the pairing, the lack thereof, the format. Anything. This music is part of who I am and you are all part of who I am and I just want to share that with you all.

I call it my "Life Begins..." challenge (guess what milestone I hit in December then…) and hope y'all will join in! My birthday's on the 30th December, but I'm not gonna force you all to POST BY THEN OR ELSE! 'cos this is meant to be fun. My way of sharing what I love with the people I love.

Track ListingCollapse )

Download zip file of all 32 tracks (meep, it wasn't meant to be quite that many… on the other hand it could have been so much more!)

This promptathon is open to everyone, whether or not you know me or are on my flist - the more the merrier!

Been trying out a lot of new art techniques lately (instead of writing up my guiding qualification, yes, I'm procrastinating) and thought I'd share them here. Some of these are made following tutorials exactly so I'm not making them public or claiming creative credit - those that are unique to me are posted on my tumblr 'cos it's so much easier to upload them there from my phone...

For those of you who may not have seen this on Facebook, the wonderful Gil Mawson (nee Bristow) sadly lost her fight with breast cancer on 12th February. Gil was such an amazing person who was a massive part of the BBC Cult forums and the BBB yahell group. Gil was one of the good ones, one of the very best people I've ever met and I was so lucky to call her friend.

I'll miss you honey.

1 - I finally have it in writing that my landlord has committed to 'carry out appropriate repairs in a reasonable time' with regards fixing my (still) leaking roof.

2 - Spoke to the boss of the letting agency and he's negotiated a £75 reduction of my rent until this is all fixed.

3 - I went to my ATOS appeal yesterday.


5 - I don't have to be reassessed by ATOS for another two years.

6 - I get a badfalcon next week.

7 - I get to go Nessie hunting with Cassie (and possibly Raintown) next week!

So basically? Things are looking pretty good today.

Of course the perfect flat fell through, and the only thing on the market right now in my price range is the one with the dealer up the stairs (he's not the problem, his customers are...) so I'm stuck in the hellhole for a little longer, but it can only be a matter of time, right?
