Well, the Movie opened today. I have to wait 'til Tuesday to see it *groans* but I'll be rooting for our Amazing Amazon!

The BradyGirl_12 DCU Fic/Art Wonder Woman Diamond Anniversary Challenge has been posted here on DW and here on LJ. All fanworks welcome.If you've got a Diana-centric fanwork, these are the places to post.

This is my last BradyGirl_12 Challenge. Send me off in style! :)

Just testing my Dreamwidth cross-posting. I'll probably still post my fic over on LJ and then import it here, as I have so darned much I don't want to be setting up archive pages over here. If the inevitable happens and I someday abandon LJ, I'll just have to navigate via tags here. I refuse to redo all those links over here! :)

Anyway, I'll probably still write non-fic entries over there but may do some here and cross-post to get into the habit. Happily I've backed up my journal here and the majority of my fic is posted at AO3. Never put all your eggs in one basket!

I am not abandoning LJ for the foreseeable future, not with recently-paid icons and a paid account, not unless I have no choice. Right now it's still my choice. And I can check my DW Reading List here and keep up with people.

Is Tumblr where fandom has pretty much relocated? I really don't like that platform. Has something where discussion is encouraged emerged out there, or is it DW? Which most people don't use, though that may change.

Anyway, still on LJ, but also BradyGirl_12 on DW. What is the code on DW to make a tag like this: [profile] bradygirl? I tried dw user but that doesn't work. And what's the code for cuts? On LJ, it's lj-cut text= and lj-cut (bracketed, of course), but what is it on DW?

EDIT: Hmm, I used the lj user code and it came out looking like a DW name. Weird.

Anyway, slowly setting things up just in case. I can see something in the future with me posting fic here on DW and linking back to LJ for previous fic, and also using tags here to find stuff. I don't know yet.

Good morning, my lovelies, and a BIG Thank You to [livejournal.com profile] catalenamara, a dear and generous friend who answered my plea for help with my extra userpics. You are a Peach Among Peaches, my dear! *hugs*

It's a very nice boost considering I've been under-the-weather all weekend, so I am extra happy that I can play with my icons. You guys are so generous! *wipes tear* Love you all, and especially Cat this morning! :)

As always, enjoy what you will from my posts. I am working on some new fanfic that you might like and am always interested in your posts. I have learned a lot about people on LJ and must say that my flist has quality people. :)

Have a good day, my friends! Happy Vernal Equinox! :)

Help!

Argh, once again I come hat in hand. My userpics package will expire by the 21st. With medical expenses, my rent being raised, and tire repairs, I have nothing left for this renewal. I'd like to enjoy fun icons like the one on this entry (it always makes me giggle), and add a few for the Wonder Woman movie soon.

If anyone could help me out, I would be most grateful. Thank you, and Happy St. Patrick's Day! :)

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! :)

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!!!

When I hosted Korean War Day over on Vintage_Ads, I embedded two movies in my journal over on LJ but embeds don't duplicate well, so here they area:

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! :)

I am never disappointed at the generosity of my friends in fandom. I woke up this morning to the wonderful message that I'd been gifted with an extension of my paid account! THANK YOU, [livejournal.com profile] catalenamara! *dances* One of the things I miss about no longer attending Media West* Con is seeing you in person. We had a lot of good times there. :)

It's a beautiful day.  I finally put out my plants on deck today. We've had warm weather but suddenly the night temps could hover around freezing, so I waited until now to put the plants out.

Ficcish update coming soon! I know you're all breathlessly awaiting it ;)

Good evening, all!

Haven't been around much lately due to RL stuff, including a stint in the hospital. Tests, tests, tests!

Damn, got back on-line and got a notice saying my paid account will run out on June 14th. If some kind soul will help me out, I would be SO grateful! I'd hate to waste the gift of my anonymous benefactor of the extra userpics a few months ago because without a paid account I can't use those extras! They gotcha coming and going!

I plan on posting a ficcish update soon. Believe it or not, I may have some things to post this month! :)

Hi, luvs!

Recently I've been working on a statistics project and I've come up with some good numbers. :) I've been keeping word counts of all my posts on LJ, starting in 2010, but the years 2006-2009 were not tabulated, so I decided to go back and count things up since those years were my most prolific on LJ. It took awhile but was fun to do as I revisited old stories and tallied quite a few words for my fanfic writing.

During the 'missing years' I posted dozens of stories or chapters of multi-chaptered stories per month. One month in 2009 saw 17 stories posted and that didn't even count the chapters of longer works! So my Muses were white-hot in those days. The period of my most prolific output coincided with an explosion of fannish energy and activity on LJ in which I was posting and reading dozens of stories per week. Good times! :)

The following statistics represent all fiction posts made to LJ. All were fanfic with the exception of 3 original fics I posted in 2009*. These stats do not count writing made for profic or non-posted stories. 2006 was a very low number as I didn't start posting any fic until December of that year. I had created my journal on October 24, 2006 and lurked for a bit to see how things were done. :) 2016 statistics were not included as that is a WIP. 2011 was the beneficiary of 3 Big Bangs and a Big Bang-length zine story that eventually ended up on LJ. Whew!

Statistics )

THANK YOU to the anonymous donor who gifted me with all my extra userpics!!! *dances*

Thanks to all of you who listened to my moping and moaning about losing them. I know it's a small thing, and some might think it's stoopid, but we all have our quirks and this is one of mine. *hugs icons tight* I was pretty bummed with the loss of so many icons, particularly a bunch of Steve/Diana and Bruce/Dick lovelies, but so many more!

I TOTALLY appreciate this! What a great thing to cheer up a bleh Monday, though I admit a snowstorm the day after the first day of spring is pretty funny and very typical of New England! :)

I might even be inspired to do a little more fanficcing! :)

My f-list is THE BEST!!!

Argh, my 3 userpic packages have expired! I had 278. It won't be as much fun choosing the icons anymore. :(

If anyone can help, I would be most appreciative. Thank you.

Hi, luvs!

My deluxe icons package of icons is expiring in 5 days. :(

If any kind soul can help me out with renewal, I would be most grateful and would raise a green beer to you next week on St. Patrick's Day! :)
bradygirl_12: (superman--batman (merry xmas!))
Omigosh, THANK YOU to the kind soul who gifted me with paid time for my Dreamwidth account. That means I can still import my LJ comms here and enjoy all the perks besides! :)

What a wonderful place my flist is! Whenever I am feeling low, you guys pick me up and it's a true joy! :)

I am really getting into the Christmas spirit! Maybe I can post a few holiday stories this month that make you smile. :)
bradygirl_12: (Default)
Hi, all! If anyone can help by renewing my paid Dreamwidth account, I'd appreciate it. A paid account allows me to transfer my LJ comms over here, Three days before expiration! Thank you.
