Hi everyone,

Sorry for the radio silence, life is insanely stressful and stupid. I am however quite all right. I'm sitting down tonight with chicken stir-fried with ginger, garlic and prunes - I don't know if that sounds nice or not, I just threw in all the things, but it tastes pretty good - and spinach salad. I actually think there might be some alcohol involved at some point. I don't drink a lot but there's some Cointreau in the cupboard for cooking reasons, that sounds like a recipe for disaster but I am GOING THERE.

There may or may not be an episode of Supernatural at some point. Things I've also been enjoying lately have been "Uncharted 3" the PS3 game (EPIC for the gameplay and the bromance), also Tom Hardy in his several cinematic achievements. I'm currently writing one or two bits and pieces, while work is just going crazy. I'm getting to be an expert at writing funding applications. Some are even successful! But there's a certain satisfaction in writing a great budget and back-up materials and doing it properly even if it's unsuccessful, if you know you did it okay. Kind of like writing a fic which no one really reads, but you personally like very much.

Much love to you all. I'll try and be around more but can't guarantee as life is really just shocking on some level in its busy-ness. I get to the point where something interesting happens and I think "hm I should post about this" but then I just don't. So I will try to. You are all in my thoughts OFTEN.

Tom Hardy. I saw This Means War with a friend, and while the company was excellent, the film... not so much. Still, he was lovely in it when not being one of the secret agent total creepers :).

The ginger, garlic and prunes sound pretty darned tasty.

Best wishes for those funding applications!

I read on Stuff that he might be playing that openly gay rugby player in a film, now that Mickey Rourke (!!) dropped out. The prunes were surprisingly nice. :-)

Huhhh, a curious thing when either Mickey Rourke or Tom Hardy would work for a role!

Glad to hear that you're still afloat! Hope life settles down soon to allow more time for writing! (er... that sounded selfish! How about... to allow more time to pursue your heart's desires!)

I was thinking about you this week - I want to re-read some of your fics but have so much unread that it feels too indulgent! Glad you are fine down under - I heard on the news yesterday Christchurch is gearing up for the rugby in the rebuilt stadium and everyone was getting very excited. They are eager to make sure the new stadium has a killer atmosphere ready for the All Blacks kicking the shit out of everyone next year!

ha, thank you! That's very kind. The new stadium sounds really great, and a nice step towards getting things a bit back to normal. It also proves that things can actually be done, which people are starting to doubt. GO BLACK. Is all I can say to that!

Hi, I miss you! I'm so glad you're finding satisfaction in what you're doing, even if it's keeping you crazy busy.

Hi I miss you too! It's being more crazy than satisfying right now for reasons of stupidity, but things will even out in a while, I hope. <3

Random lurker popping up to say...was that you writing Uncharted fanfic on Archive of Our Own? You need to write MORE lol. There's not much good Uncharted fanfic, or, really, not much Uncharted fanfic.

Aha that was me writing one story. It kind of wouldn't let me alone until I wrote it. I'm not sure if there will be any more though. But thank you, that's very kind. How awesome is Uncharted? I spent the whole time playing having a crush on Nate, who in my eyes had a crush on Sully, following him over seas and deserts. It's like that Nick Cage song. Elena is pretty nice as well, but that was the epic love story to my eye. Hey lurker. Let us be friends. :-)

Uncharted is VERY AWESOME! It needs more fan love, especially in the fan fiction end of things. Do you do the multiplayer? Used to do the multiplayer on a daily basis but got seduced by Star Wars: The Old Republic lol.

Hello you! I'm hoping wistfully that good things will happen. Are you doing any lovely drawings at the moment?

I have my fingers crossed for you!

I'm working on a SPN/A Series of Unfortunate Events piece for spn_cinema, but it's not due for a while yet so I'm working on it very slowly... And you? Do I have wonderful fic to look forward to? :)
