Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate! This fic is for one of my favourite people, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse - the super talented writer and all round awesome person! It's inspired by a prompt she gave me, and since I know she and I share a love of Dawn/Faith I wanted to post this for her on Christmas.

Hi all! I'm trying to get the writing inspiration up and running again, and am hoping for your help. Basically I think I need some prodding and pushing to actually write fic again. Or, maybe just some ideas to inspire me!

So, I'd love for you guys to give me some Buffyverse prompts. Probably best to stick with Spike/Xander, Giles/Xander or ensemble gen especially with Buffy. I am open to giving Faith/Dawn a try (post-series). If you think I can handle a different pairing, go for it (I just won't make any guarantees!).

My plan with this is to try and write some drabbles and short to long fic based on the prompts, or use the prompts to help with more writing on If I Can't Dance. I don't want to make any promises in case I continue to be blocked, but I will try my hardest!!

Thanks so much!
cordelianne: (Super Librarian Cordy all tough)
Er, yes, I'm another Canadian posting to LJ in excitement about the Liberal-NDP coalition (with support from the Bloc Quebecois) that proposes to become the new government and topple the Conservative minority government. Here's a great editorial (that I obviously agree with) in the Toronto Star that also briefly explains the situation waaaay better than I ever could.

I'm so excited about the possibility because it feels like democracy is really in action! So, I got inspired by [livejournal.com profile] ringthebells's posts on the topic which included info on how to contact your MP (member of parliament) and the Governor General, and I have now done that so am sharing it with you all, since they are quick and easy!

WHAT YOU CAN DO ("You" being Canadians obviously)

1. Write your MP and tell them you support the coalition.

Go HERE to find out the email address of your MP.

My letter to my MP )


2. Send a postcard or letter to the Governor General

The address:

Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean
Governor General of Canada
Rideau Hall
1 Sussex Drive
Ottawa, Ontario
K1A 0A1


(no postage necessary)

The salutation is: Excellency

My postcard to the GG )

Buying postcards are super cheap, so I bought a bunch for my office (all ones of Toronto) and am giving them away.

3. Sign an online petition

Go HERE to sign a petition and to get more organizing info.

4. If you're really dedicated go to a rally

Go HERE for the rally info across the country.
Here's the Toronto rally info:
Sat, Dec 6, 12 pm - 1 pm.
City Hall.
Nathan Phillips Square.

After watching the US's exciting politics recently (yay Obama!), it's very cool to be excited about the politics in my own country again. I feel this is an important time to try and make our voices heard.

Although I really want a coalition government, a friend pointed out that no matter what the outcome, we all win (because if there is no coalition, Harper and the Conservatives will have been reminded that they can't continue with a unilateral approach with a minority government).
cordelianne: (FALLING!!)
I'm lying on couch, my right leg elevated on a pillow. I have a bad right knee that has dislocated in the past when I was 15 and 20, and on Friday it happened again... during yoga. I was doing Eagle Pose, one I've been doing fine for 2 years, but on Friday my knee dislocated (it fortunately did go back in). But if you know Eagle Pose, my left leg was wrapped around my right so it caused me to crash to the ground so I hurt my right wrist because I automatically put it down when I fell.

I fortunately was beside one of the studios RMTs who got me ice right away and did a good job looking after me. So on Friday I figured it was like the previous time when it had been swollen initially but had gotten better after a lot of icing and ibprofen. Unfortunately that's not happening right now - it's still swollen and way more painful than it's been previously so I'm worried about my knee (my wrist is still painful but the swelling's gone down).

I did go to a walk-in clinic yesterday (thanks to my parents driving me) and got a referral for an ultrasound on my knee, so I'm hoping to get in and have it checked tomorrow.

So currently I'm discovering that living on the 4th floor of a walk-up is not at all good with an injury. It is helpful to have my parents, with their car, living in the city. And by now, I'm completely sick of being in pain, sick of having my injury, disinterested in doing schoolwork and just generally whiny. Maybe I should take some more ibpofen.

ETA: So I realize this is not an uplifting post, so I thought I'd link you all to something that brought the hugest grin to my face and made me forget about my whole knee situation:

[livejournal.com profile] reremouse's fantastically awesome, funny, witty, poignant, sexy and original Giles/Xander fic: Uncle Quiggy Saved The World
cordelianne: (Spike TV & Pacey!)
I'm feeling hungover, not from alcohol, but from trying to watch both the US Vice-Presidential debate (I ended up fast-forwarding, cannot handle Palin) and the Canadian English Leaders Debate (Steve Paikin: best moderator ever!!! As one of my coworkers said Steve Paikin won the debate). So I think it's the perfect day to post about TV, but the fun kind of TV! :D

I know you've all been dying to know what shows I'm watching this year. I'm trying to be ruthless (which is hysterical cause I'm so not a ruthless person) and cut back on my shows. So here's the Shows I'm Watching and Loving - no spoilers )

cordelianne: (Buffy Future is Bright)
Hi! Hi! I can't believe I haven't posted in so long! And when that happens I keep feeling that my return needs to be significant which then means I never get around to posting. So vicious cycle. heh. I'm doing well, just really busy with the new part-time Library School studies along with my full-time job.

BUT! I'm so appalled and scared by the way politics are heading these days, especially in Canada, that I have to post. I know I don't usually post about politics but I feel this is something everyone should see. Stephen Harper (Conservative leader and PM of Canada) plagiarizing from the Australian leader John Howard (back in 2003 when Harper was the Opposition leader):




At my university, UofT, plagiarism is taken very seriously, as it should be. We can get expelled for it. I hope all voters take this instance of blatant plagiarism as seriously.

Also, I feel everyone should read this article:

Stephen Harper and the Rising Clout of Canada's Religious Right.

It's a really interesting examination into Stephen Harper's affiliation with the extreme right evangelical Christians. It's quite long but worth reading for anyone concerned about how dangerous the right wing Christians are to all of us (especially for the LGBT community).

And now that I've posted, hopefully I'll post more often! With fun things too! :D

Hello! Of late, I've been so very bad about posting and actually being around LJ but I am trying to fix that! :D And my first step back is to finally post about the completed Round Robin fic I participated in: Living Conditions.

It's an honour to have my name on a fic which is also written by some of my favourite authors: [livejournal.com profile] electricalgwen, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] savoytruffle. This is a Round Robin fic where each author wrote two of the nine chapters and we all collaborated on the ninth. Post-series, Spike runs into Xander in London. Both have had changes in their circumstances. Low-key shagging and angst ensue.

I really love this fic and hope that you do too!

Title: Living Conditions
Author: Multiple authors: [livejournal.com profile] cordelianne, [livejournal.com profile] electricalgwen, [livejournal.com profile] savoytruffle and [livejournal.com profile] reremouse
Chapters: Parts 5 to 9/9 *COMPLETED*
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Big questions, vagueness and sex talk. A Xander divided against itself trying to stand. Curtailed sex, reminiscences of evisceration, and destruction of furniture. Brooding, boorishness and the Olympic dream.
Notes: This is a round robin fic, with each chapter having been written by a different author. There are four authors and nine chapters total (we will write two chapters each and collaborate on the ninth).
Summary: A number of years post-Chosen/NFA, Spike pays Xander a visit. He finds a changed Xander, but Xander’s not the only one who’s changed. We blatantly ignore the comics.

You can find all chapters HERE in memories.

Part Five by [livejournal.com profile] cordelianne
Part Six by [livejournal.com profile] savoytruffle

(from BtVS 1:5)

I have exciting news about my life! I applied to Library School.... and I got accepted!!! I start this fall - that's just 4 months away!

I'll actually be in the Masters of Information Studies programme at the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto, in the library stream. Considering how wordy that is, I'm sure you can see why I'm just telling people I'm going to Library School because that is essentially what I'll be doing. I'm starting part-time so that I can continue to work full-time but may try doing a final year full-time (we'll see).

This is big and wonderful news for me for a number of reasons )
cordelianne: (SWX S8 Xander)
Today's my day (well one of them!) at [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan and I'm posting a new story that I've been working on. This story, Two Guys, a Girl and a Vampire is being posted today and will be concluded on Thursday May 29th. It stands on its own, but I envision this story as potentially being the introduction to a verse I've been calling in my head NYC Spander (I'm working on a cooler name). I hope you enjoy! :D
