 It always amuses me to see the little signs that reveal a person's true character in a situation where their job requires uniformity. 
 
The Translink lady at the bus stop informing everyone the bus had been delayed as per usual was wearing the standard uniform of bland stripped shirt, navy pants, and fluro yellow vest.
 
Her nails however, had multicoloured sparkly tips. Ie a french manicure style with a different sparkly shade on each nail (blue, pink and silver I believe). The tips were about 1cm long. 
 
It just contrasted so much with the image she presented as just another public transport officer. I was amused.

If we're talking the classic greek/roman myths, then it's gotta be Hades/Persephone :)  I love, love, love that story. It's a pairing that has endless tortured/angsty possibilities :D  yum.  :)  hehehe.

But in terms of an actual creature, while I'm a fan of anything that goes bump in the night, the prize has to go to Dragons.  
Chinese dragons (wingless serpentine-like creatures who fly) have more sentimental value for me.  These creatures bring good luck, good fortune and auspiciousness (if that's a word).  
The western Dragon (large winged creatures) are great too.  And I really dislike the stories where dragons are killed or hunted. :(

I am procrastinating badly and revamped my Callisto Icons :) There's one or two new ones here too.

The only problem?? I need more userpics!! :S

SMACKDOWN

So, Goldenlake's   SMACKDOWN writing competition is here again for 2011 :)

Tuesday 8th to Sunday 13th March

Fight A: Arena One
Dom/Evin v Zahir/Jonathan
I'm going to have to write for Zahir/Jon here, as Dom/Evin really doesn't do much for me. Plus there's the more important reason of [livejournal.com profile] ubiquitous_girl .

I've never written J/Z before, and quite frankly didn't know where to start. It's definitely not a pairing I'm familiar with. But armed with a brand spanking new purrty writing journal and shiny purple pens, I successfully bribed my muse into co-operating with me. I'm on a J/Z roll.

Although, I've only written Jon's internal monologue so far. I deed to switch scenes and start writing some dialogue & action! *wiggles eyebrows* I have to say though. I thoroughly love torturing Jon. :) bwahahaha.
Thoughts, pairings, fics & more ... )

Enjoy  :)

LJ v FB

My LJ stays on LJ.  No part of my LJ is to go on Facebook.  They don't like eachother.  If the two were ever to mix, the results would be very, very bad.  Catastrophic. 

So no linking LJ to FB.  End of story.
minuit_mystique: (Female: sin without a name)

I would like to blame [livejournal.com profile] treanz for the fact that I now have an R rated sms inbox on my phone.

One Sentence Week is looking like it's going to have to be held on [livejournal.com profile] goldenlakeadult from the looks of the George/Jon and George/Jon/Alanna smut she was texting me. :P 

On a side note, I'm really loving George/Jon/Alanna right now! :) 

New Icon

I was in a dark mood. So ... new icon! :D heehehee

Thoughts?

On a side note, anyone know a sure fire way to silence 2 little brothers without grievous bodily harm or murder? :S

Stolen from [personal profile] q_sama [profile] pineapplyness :)

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed.


1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Strike out the books you have no intention of ever reading, or were forced to read at school and hated.
5) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them.

Hi flist

I know I've been largely absent for the last few weeks.  Sorry, *blushes*  I've just been so brain dead after work that I really cannot come up with anything vaguely intelligent/interesting to say here, lol.  :P

I'm thinking of booking a trip to France (for about 2 weeks or so) in end of December-January.  Can anyone recommend any good places to book cheap flights and tours? I'm ok for the flight i think, I just need tour info.  There's so many tours offered everywhere it's so hard to tell what's a good site and what's a dud.   I'm interested in food and wine tours, general touristy attactions, and most importantly, castles!! :) 

I'm thinking at the moment it's going to be Paris, the Loire Valley and however many of the towns in southern France as I can fit in.  :) 

I found this site "InfoHub Specialty Travel Guide" http://www.infohub.com  It looks promising and I love some of the tour offerings.  Has anyone heard/used it before?  Are the tours from there generally any good? 

I'd really appreciate whatever recommendations/tips you have about touring France!  I'm thinking maybe just book the flights and accommodation in the cities I want to visit, and then figure out what to do and where to go when I get there.  The hotels should have info on good local tours right? 

Also, OMG *SQUEEEEE* FRANCE!!!!!!!!!!!

Whyyyyyy

Title: The old and the new
Rating: PG
Fanfic for: Tamora Pierce - Tortall
Series: A Rogue by any other name ...
Prompt: #1 (Pink ribbon scars that never forget) from [livejournal.com profile] 31_days 
Summary: George gets a new scar to match an old one. 
A/N: Let's just pretend I posted this yesterday??? [i]*shifty eyes*[/i]
here @ [livejournal.com profile] the_unseelie

George fingered the scars on his arm as he carefully cleaned his knives. Two jagged ribbons ran up his left forearm and around his triceps. They were barely a month old, still pink and puckered.  )

Title: Walking higher, but still in shadows
Rating: G
Fanfic for: Tamora Pierce - Tortall
Series: A Rogue by any other name ...
Prompt: #2 (Walking on higher ground) from [livejournal.com profile] 31_days 
Summary: George reflects on his new life as a Baron.
A/N: It simply had to be about George. :)
here @ [livejournal.com profile] the_unseelie 

He was a Baron now. He walked among the high and the mighty, the noble and the elite. People looked at him with respect and deference in their eyes. He was one of them. Or so it would seem. )

WELCOME BACK MUSE :)

I'm finally working on my original story again :) I'm half tempted to turn it into a novel length story. It will be based from this short story I wrote back in high school. I've figured out where my villain is going to come from. Now to pick a protagonist ... and a city ... Anyone got a good suggestion for where they think a modern day vampire story should be set?


I'm hoping writing my original story again will also lead me to writing more fanfiction. Just in time for TORTALL FANFICTION SMACKDOWN (the fanfic battle for Kel's hand) being held in Goldenlake.


I should also finish my Kel/Wyldon/Vivenne fic Currious Arrangement at some point :P
