Happy Epiphany or something like it

Couple of things!

Tuesday was McDiva's 15th birthday, as well as that of penny_lane_42 and molly_may ! Happy belated birthday to some great gals! McDiva seemed to transform into some sort of sophisticate overnight, with the help of some additional ear piercings and a new haircut. She got so many "You're so pretty!" comments that she reported being a little creeped out. Just the overture, sweetie...

Also, snickfic reminded me that I never know what to do with drabbles over on AO3, and I think I've decided to make a separate "pseud" just for drabbles, so that they can all live together in peace and harmony, but not clutter up the listing for longer stories. I'd love for you to help me decide what to use!

Poll #1665026 Rebcake's Quest for Identity

What name should I use for posting drabbles on AO3?

Something else that I will suggest in the comments

I'm not wedded to any of them, and would entertain some other idea entirely.

Note to my Brit Friends: Tom Lenk is doing a 3-night run of his one man show in London starting tonight, and if you are in the area, you should go. MiAmor and I had a great time (along with eurydice72 and her hubby) at the SF show, although I was remiss in writing up a review. Song, art, and sex were all handled with amusing self-deprecation. If it is any inducement, he also had a fabulous Buffy-related prize for one knowledgeable audience member. (Not me, alas.)

General question: Does the coding go all wonky on posts when you include polls? I don't remember it doing so before, but I'm having weirdness on both DW and LJ. Grrr.

Plus you know, cupcakes are like a mini-cake and drabbles are like mini-fics. Or something. LOL

I keep thinking there is some way to integrate the cupcake idea into the rebcake idea that will be oh so witty...but maybe that's as good as it gets.

Thanks for your input!

Yup, I'm a cupcake fan. ;-)

Oh, yass...

Thanks for the birthday wish! And happy belated birthday to McDiva, too!

Hee! Everything about them is little and cute! Unlike the now willowy and worldly McDiva! *sob* Keep that Happy Birthday in your heart throughout the year, darlin'.

We are all in agreement, it seems. Though I like cakelette as a word; somebody, quick, invent a new baked good we can call that!

LJ seems incredibly slow to me right now, but no obviously weird coding. Grr indeed.

I tried to shoehorn in something with a creampuff or eclair motif, or maybe petites-fours, but it just got too unwieldy...

I do hope you will consider going to see the Tom Lenk show. MiAmor went in determined not to like it, but he was completely won over and even did a smidge of audience participation, which he generally despises. I think we were a little biased, because it was like spending the evening with MiAmor's son, Chip, who we don't see often enough. But aside from that, it was really good. He can sing and plays surprising instruments, even!

Happy Birthday to McDiva!

It's all been happening so fast! Last year this time she was a basket case, getting prepared to audition for the performing arts high school. Since she got the acceptance letter, she's been a juggernaut of increased confidence and so much style! I'm breathless from all the activity. I realize that it will all be over in a flash, with college just a few years away, and that's in some ways even worse. No use anticipating the inevitable, I suppose.

Anyway, thanks for the good wishes. I know it's a trek, but the Tom Lenk show is pretty fun...

Nice icon!

I like the cupcake idea, but the others are cute too!
Jan. 6th, 2011 06:53 pm (UTC)
Hee! Thanks for the feedback. Cupcakes are a lot of fun, aren't they?

I immediately thought: rebshortcake!

So... there's that. :D
Jan. 6th, 2011 08:19 pm (UTC)
Ooooh! That's rather perfect, isn't it? Hmmmmm. Also, I do make amazing shortcake...

Ooooh! That's rather perfect, isn't it?

I thought so! Also, shortcake always makes me think of cake that's pared down to the basic-but-delicious essentials. Very much like a drabble in my mind.

But I just really love cake, you know. I'm the person who wants a middle piece of the birthday cake and I studiously avoid the icing.

Also, I do make amazing shortcake...

Icing? Yucky! Cake? Nummy! Butter, sugar, maybe a little chocolate...win!
Jan. 6th, 2011 08:51 pm (UTC)
I think it ought to be something that starts with "reb" so that the two names are next to each other in the listing. I do really like Emmie's idea about "rebshortcake."
Jan. 6th, 2011 09:00 pm (UTC)
It does make all kinds of sense to start with "reb". I am leaning toward the rebshortcake option, myself. Have you come up with a solution for your drabble problem? (It's a nice problem to have, isn't it?)
Jan. 7th, 2011 03:07 am (UTC)
So, I guess you saw: drabbles in one big block, I think.

BTW, FYI, FWIW, and assorted other acronyms: there's a "sort by word count" feature on AO3 that allows readers to shunt those drabbles to the bottom, if they feel so inclined. I don't know that everyone considers drabbles 'clutter,' anyway.

Went with "rebcupcake," but could also go with "rebcake_mini."

Thanks for the birthday wishes, and a very happy belated birthday to McDiva! She's way ahead of me, as sadly I'm still waiting to turn into a sophisticate.

I have to agree with the person who said that everything is better with cupcakes!
