Hi, luvs!

The incomparable [livejournal.com profile] rileyc has contributed a story to my 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge. Her story summary is the perfect summation: "Magic finds a way." - John Constantine. Enjoy! :)

Even though there was only one entry into BradyGirl_12’s 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge (it appears I made the right decision to make this the last one), I like to be a completist and so am creating this Master List for 2016. And, if you have any fanwork you'd like to add while the grace period is on, please do! We are going to be in the midst of a lot of holiday schmoop (which I love, BTW), but if you want something with, ahem, a little more bite to it, add your Halloween fanwork's header and link to the Main Page and I'll take care of the rest for you.

Enjoy the tale of the Bat-Family caught up in the weirdness of the Twilight Zone! :)

The wind was cold as clouds passed across the face of the moon, momentarily blocking its silvery light. The street was empty of pedestrians and only a few cars drove by as it was fifteen minutes before midnight. A display of grinning Jack O’Lanterns glowed at the entrance to the park a few blocks away. )

Happy Halloween, guys and ghouls (yes, I went there)!

Enjoy the day and evening. Magic is in the air! :)

Hi, luvs! A quick reminder that Halloween is almost upon us! This is my final 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge and I'd like to make it a good send-off. There's a generous grace period if Halloween has come up too fast for you.

Speaking of Challenges, I'm cooking up one for Wonder Woman next year to celebrate her first-ever live-action movie. It'll be the last of my Challenges, and I'm hoping it will be a success. I'm thinking of kicking it off on the movie's Opening Day, and will decide when the posting window closes. 2017 could be a WONDERful year! ;)

BTW, Lynda Carter was fantastic as the Prez on Supergirl this week! :)

Bruce stared through the iron gates at the old mansion that seemed to sag with an air of despair. His hands were curled around the spikes of the rusting gates as rain fell in steady sheets. He could hear the tempest-tossed ocean as it surged below the cliffs. )

Hi, luvs!

I just realized that it's close to my 10th anniversary here on LJ. I created this journal on October 24, 2006, made my first post on November 12th, and my first fic posting on November 21st (Announcement I: The Ready Room), introducing myself to the DC Comics community here on-line. Little did I know the friends I would make and the prolific writing in my future! Good times, good times. :)

I don't know if I'll come up with something for the anniversary, but I wanted to acknowledge it to all my friends here on my f-list, and who have stuck around when a lot of people took off for shinier baubles platforms. A big THANK YOU to all the people who have encouraged me during low points, celebrated with me in good times, and helped me with gifting me with paid accounts and extra icon userpics, which has really made life here more fun. :)

I've had a great time reading, writing, and hosting my Challenges over the years, too. The 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge is my next-to-last Challenge, as I'm seriously considering doing something special for Wonder Woman next year to commemorate her first ever live-action movie. That will be my grand final Challenge and how better to do it than with one of my all-time favorite characters? :) I'm pretty proud of the many Challenges I've hosted (Complete List here) and another big THANK YOU to all who contributed during these past ten years.

It's been a rainy morning with plenty of fog, but we need the rain after a summer of drought. The leaves are turning bright colors and my sister and I are going to the orchard tomorrow to get fresh apples (can't get any fresher!). Life is good. Enjoy your weekend, my friends! :)
bradygirl_12: (bat o'lantern 2)
How typical is this? I'm just about to write the final paragraph of the story I'm planning to submit to my 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge, and I decide I've got a better angle and now I have to do a major re-write! Fortunately, it's not a super-long story, but it will delay my posting. I know, you're all waiting with bated breath, right? ;) Better that I came up with the new idea now instead of after posting, eh?

Most of my writing efforts this month will revolve around my [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang story, mostly prep for AO3 posting and figuring out how many chapters I can fit into one entry on LJ. I also have to write out my master post for the announcement on [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, but I'm probably going to use the summary I've already used, anyway.

Otherwise I have three Halloween ideas I'm juggling, the one mentioned above, another DC Comics idea, and a Marvel Comics idea. My other DC plot bunny may end up using my Late Entries Policy grace period, as I'm still kind of letting the idea simmer in my cauldron for now. I've already started work on the Marvel idea.

Funny how I'm getting all these seasonal ideas when we're supposed to get a heat wave this week. Thankfully cold weather will be back by next weekend!

Hope your Halloween Muses are spooking you, too! ;)

Hi, luvs!

Just a reminder that my 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge is up and running. Get in while you can because I'm pretty sure this is going to be the last Halloween Challenge I host for the foreseeable future. I might do something next year to celebrate Wonder Woman's first live-action movie EVAH, but after that, I'll be retiring my Mod Tiara. It seems as if people on LJ are more interested in Kinkmemes and Big Bangs, and I'm not interested in hosting those.

I had a good run. Check out the Fic/Art Challenges page and you'll see a blueprint of LJ's 'hotness' and how it cooled in the past decade. You might want to get into the holiday spirit (ahem) and check out the fanworks from previous Halloweens. Maybe you'll get inspired for this bat swan song! ;)

A quickie reminder that if you can't submit an entry by Halloween, you're still eligible for 'goodies' due to my
Late Entries Policy.

I've had a great time hosting these Challenges and a big THANK YOU to all who participated over the years, contributing fanworks, congratulation banners, encouragement, etc.

FANWORKS FOREVER!!!

Hi, luvs!

I'm only going by the promos, as obviously the show debuts tonight, but if you're a fan of time travel, you may want to give Timeless a look. It's on NBC tonight at 10:00 and hopefully will be a good show. :)

Fall is finally here! After an early September heat wave, we're in cooler weather now. The trees are starting to turn, and I've got my baby pumpkin and gourds decorating my place. The colors are all red, yellow, and orange with some black thrown in for Halloween! :) My sister and I will be going to the orchard in a few weeks and I might take a trip soon to Trader Joe's for some mini pumpkin pies and cookies. :)

Football is in full swing, and the real season begins for us Pats fans with the return of Tom Brady from his unjust suspension. Watch out, NFL! Could be scorched earth if we're lucky!

Have a good day and enjoy the best season of all! :)

BradyGirl_12's 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge


Can you hear the whispers of ghosts in the trees as they bend and sigh? Can you see the Jack O’Lanterns glitter and leer as their light dances in the windows and on the porches? Can you hear the shuffling of trick-or-treaters' feet as they make their way through the fallen leaves?

Then it’s time for the BradyGirl_12's 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge, my friends! :)

This is BIG, folks! ;)

So harvest the candy corn and string up the pumpkin lights and join us for spooky fun! :)

Hi, luvs!

As you can see by the icon on this post, I am busy utilizing my userpic packages and gathering more cool pix to showcase. I can't resist Clark using his heat vision to cook the hot dogs and burgers on the grill. :)

Speaking of cook-outs, I did attend one over the weekend with the requisite menu: hot dogs, hamburgers, pasta salad, potato salad, garden salad, chips, dips, pickles, olives...you know, good stuff! :) Everything tastes better on the grill!

P.S. To get the full effect, check this post out on my journal with its cook-out theme! :)

Hi, luvs! I've been off-line quite a bit the past 24 hours having all kinds of Halloween fun, so it took me until today to present these latest submissions into my 2015 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge. All three submissions were made on Halloween to make deadline. :)

Please enjoy [livejournal.com profile] clarahow's charming tale of spookiness starring Kara and Alex of the brand-new Supergirl, an amusing, magical Clark/Bruce story by [livejournal.com profile] navaan, and a sexy Dick/Tim funfest by [livejournal.com profile] navaan again.

On the night before All Hallow's Eve, two very different entries submitted to my 2015 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge: a lighthearted tale as Bruce suffers through the Season of the Pumpkin, and a sad but lovely story by [livejournal.com profile] the_diggler starring the World's Finest.

Author's Notes: written for [livejournal.com profile] bradygirl_12’s DCU Halloween challenge. The first prompt is obviously "It was a dark and stormy night," but I don't want to give away the second prompt. All I can say is, this probably isn't the kind of festive fic Halloween deserves... but maybe the fic Halloween needs? (Yes, that was a terrible joke, I know.) Unfortunately as I was going through the prompt list, my muse latched on to something and took it to a dark place :s

Hello, luvs!

It's HALLOWEEN WEEK!!! :)

It's the best time of year! The trees are in full color, the harvest is bountiful, and the darkness falls quicker every evening. Whispers of mystery sigh through the trees, and Jack O'Lanterns glow in the windows. The sweet smell of woodsmoke pierces the air as the days grow colder.

Time for the 2015 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge, too. If you have an idea but can't quite make it by Halloween for posting, don't worry. My Late Entries Policy takes care of that. Besides, Halloween can be celebrated any time of year. :)

Enjoy this special week, my friends! :)
