Black Jewels FIC: Certain Type- NC-17

Title: Certain Type
Author: Jourdana Standish
Fandom: Black Jewels
Pairing: Surreal/Rainier
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: Oh if ONLY I owned them.
Author's Notes: This is slightly AU after Tangled Webs, mostly AU because of the... lack? of severity of Surreal and Rainier's injuries. Or the stubborness took a back seat to let them heal more than they did. It takes place a few months afterwards.

FIC: Torn- Hawaii Five-0- Danny/Rachel

Title: Torn
Fandom: Hawaii Five-0
Pairing: Danny/Rachel
Summary: For a brief moment, all of Rachel’s fears about Danny have come true and it reveals some hidden truths that she’s been trying to keep a tight lid on for some time now.
Spoilers: None
Author’s notes: The events that lead up to this fic are not entirely important, hence why it’s only briefly mentioned. This is more a character/relationship piece. Also... it turned out slightly different then I anticipated.
Rating: T- mostly for the potential of harsh language and mentions of blood/violence

Reminder about fanzine!

So I have decided to put together a fanzine to sell at MediaWest*Con over Memorial Day weekend. It's going to be a multi-fandom zine, no particular focus, and I am looking for people that may be interested in submitting to the zine.

There aren't many requirements, except the following:
  1. It's a new piece of fanfic
  2. Beta read by at least one person
  3. Minimum length is a 1-2 (or 1,000 words) page word doc double column- this allows me to play with the formatting if I decide to have the zine be double columned or single. There is no maximum length.
  4. The piece submitted may not be posted anywhere online for at least 12 months from date of publication (ie. Can not be posted until May 2012)
The finale deadline for submissions is May 16, 2011 as I want to get the zine formatted and to CopyMax for printing by that weekend and then the convention is the following weekend.

Since generally the price of fanzines covers the cost of printing, there are no cash reimbursements (besides the fact that it would be a copyright infringement otherwise). However, what I would like to do for people who submit is to give them a free zine. Depending on the amount of submissions, the zine may have more than one volume. If that's the case, the volume that the writer is actually published in will be the free zine they will receive and will be offered a discount on the other volumes if they wish to purchase them as well.

If you are interested in submitting a story, as I said regardless of fandom, please send me an email so I can make sure that I am in contact with you and know how to get in touch so I can send you a copy of the zine. And feel free to spread this info around if you can think of anyone that is interested in submitting something.

HAVEN FIC: Connections- 1/1

Title: Connections
Author: Jourdana Standish
Fandom: Haven
Author's Note: I woke up with this idea of a missing scene right after Episode 9: "As You Were". Most of it is me having wishful thinking as far as OTP/OT3-ness and speculation over the animosity between Duke and Nathan and the Troubles themselves.
Warnings: Spoilers for Season 1, Episode 9: "As You Were"

Battlefield- Henry/All his wives

Okay this is my VERY first fanvid. Like very first. So it may be a bit choppy and there is a segment of video clip that didn't seem to render. I want to potentially revisit this idea/song as I get better with using this program as I never have before, but I figured I'd at least share my first effort...

[VIGNETTE] Father's Day 1/1

Title: Father's Day
Fandom: UTR-verse: Dead Like Me/The Tudors- mostly Mason but mentions of his Annie and reflections on their relationship.

~~

He wasn't quite a father yet, but it would be any time now that his wife would give birth to their daughter. He knew she was a fucking fantastic person, Anne had said so when she met her briefly a few months back during one of the infamous things that this world threw at them.

But he never dreamed of being a father. Not till he met his Annie. Hell, until Gigi stepped in, there wasn't any way for him to BE a father. The dead couldn't pro-create. But Gigi had worked her magic and now he was every inch a normal man, though he was still a reaper.

Had he been given this second chance at any other point of his life, he probably would have wasted it on drugs again. Trying to find that ultimate high. But now... now things were different. From the moment Anne Boleyn, quite literally, fell into his life. To find himself married to her... it had been a shock.

There were ups and downs, but they had found something between them that he never thought could exist. A part of him would always love George, as he knew a part of Anne would always love Henry, but neither wanted that love anymore. They had found something more together.

A soft smile crossed his features as he remembered how they had started out. Fighting like cats and dogs until he took her shopping and he managed to show her the joys of the dressing room. He was pretty sure that their daughter was conceived the afternoon they decided to have her in a similar dressing room when they went shopping again.

He was to be a father soon. Little Gia. Named for Georgie, though in the brief time she was around while Annie was, she didn't understand it. Things were complicated between them and nothing he said or did could change what the other Mason's had done. He just had to accept it was what it was and be done with it. But this was his way of acknowledging the love for her he had. He didn't know where Anne found the strength and love to accept that, but she did. And he loved her all the more for it.

A year from now, his daughter would be almost one and it would be a marvelous first real Father's Day. But today... today he reflected on the fact that he would soon be a father and he would be one of those taking their daughter to a park on a picnic and playing with her as he languished in the fact that it was a day for him. A day he could share with other father's simply because of a tornado plopping a stubborn, gorgeous, fucking sexy as hell Renaissance queen into his lap. He was a lucky man indeed.

It's been awhile since I've posted over here, but some don't follow my LJ, so I figure I'd announce it here too.

I was promoted to the Director of E-Commerce and Revenue Management at work. :-D

Shalador's Lady

So I am going to do a character review of Shalador's Lady, but that'll be behind a cut for those not wanting to read spoilers and comment until AFTER they are done reading. However, I will say publicly that I LOVED the book. I pretty much did nothing BUT read last night till I was done with the book.

Further character review behind the cut due to spoilers- Comments will likely have spoilers too )

Now that I have read the book completely, I want to go back and re-read and absorb even more, like I did with Shadow Queen. Then I can decide how I want to proceed with the characters I play. And see who I can pick up new...

Jan. 7th, 2010

I am following a lot of people's footsteps, though I admit that I considered doing this starting on January 1, then pushed the idea aside, but seeing [info]ldymlissa on LJ doing it made me think... "Why not? I need a place that's strictly focused on that that's not IJ." Not that there is anything wrong with IJ and I may cross-post form time to time, but I wanted a blog that was *strictly* about this area of my life that I really need to buckle down on. So if people are interested in following, please feel free:

A Healthier Path

Besides, I figure if people REALLY want to follow my journey, they can at that blog and I don't always have to post my raving bitchiness over how I am struggling here when the health blog is gonna be about my struggles, triumphs, etc.

Heh. I had way too much silly fun looking for faces for many of my RP OC's, which led to this little family:

Gabriel Byrne is married to Grace Kelly. Together they had Marton Csokas, Eric Bana and Katee Sackhoff. Marton Csokas married Cate Blanchett and had Roberto Bolle, Dougray Scott, Annabelle Wallis and Christina Aguilera.

Then there is the family where the siblings are, in order of character age: Dermot Mulroney, Alex O'Loughlin, Karl Urban, Gilles Marini, Henry Cavill, Candice Swanepoel and Carrie Underwood.

Kerien siblings? There are twelve of them, I don't remember the names of everyone off the top of my head. However, the baby of the family turned into a little emo girl.

I giggled way too much looking for the pretties for the project I am working on for the hell of it. But oh what fun I'm having!

Body art

I know some do not have me on facebook, so I am posting here too. I got a new tattoo today. It is the word "Queen" in sanskrit that I had hennaed on my arm back in May. I liked it a lot so decided that one of my tattoos was going to be that. Had it done today. Was a bit nervous. It's been 10 years almost exactly since I got my first tattoo. Shouldn't have been, made it through without issue.

My tattoo )

The point of our venture was for Mom to get her first tattoo, which she did. She got a celtic knot in the shape of a triquetra. It looks really cool.

Tudors Role Play

We are just starting out and it's a bit slow going, but the concept is AWESOME I think.

All we have right now are:

Anne Boleyn
Anne of Cleves (that's me!)
Catherine Howard
Catherine Parr
Mary Boleyn

We lost our Henry and our Katherine of Aragon, so would be nice to have them. But we also need everyone else. Edward, Mary, Elizabeth, Cromwell, Charles, Jane, etc. We also need OCs for court members!

Anyways, check it out! Tudors Reborn!
