cordelianne: (Sexy Legs)
It’s been so long since I posted that I was having trouble thinking of an appropriate BtVS quote for my post. I finally just went with that Xander quote (from "the Replacement", 5:3) because it always cracks me up. Since I’ve been gone for a while I thought I’d update on a variety of things in one post.

1. Holiday Feedback-a-thon: Okay, so I commented on about three stories and then everything got crazy before Christmas – which I should have known would happen. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I am still excited about reading the stories and will be working my way slowly through them asap! I have not forgotten, I’m just really really slow.

2. My fic masterlist/my fic round up for 2006: I have plans to do this, but have not actually done any work on it. Unless thinking about it counts as working on it. *g* So look for this in the hopefully near future. Er, and I'll be trying to get back into fic writing too.

3. My visit with the girlfriend: It was absolutely wonderful!! (Trust me when I say that’s an understatement.) I had a fabulous time and – of course – I didn’t want to leave. I thought I’d share a few highlights which will hopefully interest you, including meeting the absolutely awesome, fun and adorable [ profile] kittyzams!!! Read more )

4. My laptop: The power cord has broken and there’s wires exposed. FutureShop (where I purchased my computer and have a warranty through) have ordered me a new one but have said it’ll take three weeks. My reaction: THREE WEEKS!! WTF?! (I restrained myself from saying exactly that to the rude and condescending tech guy). I’m going to see if I can get that sped up. But in the meantime I’ve taped up the cord with electrical tape and am hoping it’ll hold up till the replacement comes. *eyes it warily* Okay, I’m actually at work right now and nowhere near it, but I still eye it warily.

So, this has impeded me from being very active on LJ (I didn’t even have the dangerous cord that shoots out sparks for a couple of days, and thus was trying to conserve my battery), but I have been reading people’s entries and am caught up. I’m hoping to start commenting more soon, and catch up on fic reading and commenting (I’m always behind on fic reading! *g*)

*hugs you all*

Holiday Feedback-a-thon!

cordelianne: (Andrew "I loved it so much ...")
Well, I'll be enjoying my annual Christmas Eve camp-out. See, I take my sleeping bag outside and I go to sleep on the grass. (BtVS 3:10)

I won't be camping out, but I'm going to working the midnight shift the next couple of nights to train a new employee, and I'm hoping to have some more fic reading time. So I figured it's the perfect time to participate in the Holiday Feedback-a-thon! I've seen it all over my flist and I understand the idea is [ profile] wesleysgirl's, which she kindly said anyone could adopt.

My version of this:

Leave a comment to this post with a reliable link to a story you've written that you'd like me to read and leave feedback for. I'm thinking this is a great time for people I've recently friended to introduce me to their favourite fic. And for people I've read a lot of your work to alert me to the fic I've missed or maybe just never commented on/finished commenting on. I'd prefer to read a fic in a fandom that I'm familiar with, because otherwise it'll be hard to feedback! *g* If you're unsure whether a particular story would work for me, feel free to leave a "back-up" second story from a fandom you know I'm familiar with. Also, unless you state otherwise, this is warm-fuzzy feedback of the "this is what I liked/loved" variety. If you want con-crit or to ask if specific things worked, you have to say.

What I promise -- That I will read all fic and leave a minimum of a paragraph of feedback. Depending on how many people sign up, it might take me a while, though. *g* And to be honest, I'm really slow about this sort of thing so please don't be worried if it takes me a while. I will read and feedback all the fic, it'll just take me a while. I also should warn that I have length issues, ie. long fic is daunting to me (this is a bad leftover thing from my English degree) but if what you really want me to read is your longer fic please link to it!

What I'll read: I'm pretty open to most types of fics and pairings. If there's any warnings on the fic please let me know in case it's something I would normally not read.

Fandoms I'm comfortable reading in:
Veronica Mars
Basically all the TV shows I watch - so feel free to ask, you'd be surprised how many shows I'm familiar with!

Fandoms I'm not comfortable reading in because I don't watch the shows:
Law & Order
I'm sure there's more, but it's late and my brain isn't working so well!

Addendum: If you don't write, but would like me to give you a paragraph of feedback on some other fannish endeavor (graphics or fanmixes or vids or what-have-you; even meta you'd like me to comment on) that would also be spiffy.

So please don't be shy, give me links!!!!
