A week of much action - and fic!

My posting day at seasonal_spuffy was on Thursday, which just about killed me dead. I will never again tell the mod, "Oh, anytime is fine." Sheesh. Of course, the truth is that it would've probably been just as terrifying if I'd had a date for next month, as I seem to be incapable of seriously settling down to write without a deadline. Thank you comms of weekly and monthly prompts.

Anyway, my Spuffy story turned into something of an epic. For me, anyway. It's a sequel of sorts to my story from the last round, With This Ring. It's on the fluffy side, but if you like your fluff with a bit of structure, you might like it. Just follow the link to Under My Skin, and let me know what you think. This is the first story for which I used beta readers other than MiAmor. It was all hard and stuff, but the story is much better for it. Profuse besos to clawofcat and angearia !

In other news, my time-traveling Mary Sue story, Violet Eyes Are Smiling, for which I entirely blame rahirah, was nominated in the Shades of Grey Awards (SoGA)! Neato! That was very kind of somebody. *looks around suspiciously* Here's the pretty:

Also, spoiler free, I'd just like to say that Dollhouse is making me crazy with love! And Glee is turning out to be a sort of Ohio version of Absolutely Fabulous, where everybody is over the top horrible, but I cannot possibly not watch with lines like this (spoiler): "They're children. They need to be terrified." Plus: boffo musical production numbers. This week on uppers! Whoa!

A very good week. Can't wait to catch up on all the LJ I missed, though.

ETA: Also, LJ is taking bites out of my posts. It's something to do with that "auto-formatting" check box on the HTML page. Beware! Anyway, all my theater and concert going exploits from this week are gone, daddy, gone. Even the cute, cuddly, crew-cut guys on the train. *sniff*

I just watched ep 11 of Dollhouse season 1 and am pretty crazy with love too.

*flails* That means you watched Spy in the House of Love! Squee! Isn't Adelle the most badass creature you've ever seen? Her turn was just as satisfying as watching Echo kick some ass, which we've established is always satisfying. I practically needed a cigarette after that episode, and I don't smoke! *fans self* Oh, Sierra was kinda cool, too.

Yep. I totally and completely understand your squee.

Congratulations on the shiny nomination.

Thanks, Petzi!

Congrats on the award! That story was a hoot.

I blame you for my Glee addiction. It's absurdly over the top, but it's so much fun I don't actually care. I keep making people watch too, so spreading the Glee love.

I have three episodes of Dollhouse on my DVR, and I was just debating sitting down to watch them. I can't seem to summon up the enthusiasm, but the fact that you're liking it is a tick in the "watch" catagory...

Thanks! Well, it's a nomination, not an award, but it's, you know, an honor. (Did you see the Dr. Horrible "interruption" of the Emmy's? So funny. Yet true, as with so many funny things.

As for Dollhouse...you're talking about Season 2, right? If so, I'd say go for it. I liked them all, but especially the third one. Some people have reservations about the second one, but I thought it was interesting. They're all really twisty (maybe I should just admit: twisted) but also fun. If you don't like it after these first three, maybe it's not the show for you. Or maybe it is. Because School Hard was the third Buffy I watched, I always believe in giving a promising show three tries into the 2nd season. ;-)

Congrats on the nom!

It was a pleasure helping a bit, and I think the final product shows how hard you worked to make it shiny. :D

Thanks! For the congrats and for the beta boost!

If I don't stop polishing the story, I might wear the shine right off!! Stop editing, Reb!
