In the interests of being better organised, here is the link to my fanfic.net page where every fanfic I have ever written is listed in chronological order.


Most of these fics have appeared over here at one time or another, but it's hard to keep track of them, so I'm very happy to sit back and let FF.net do the work for me :)

So that was Crossroads. sasha_dragon and I booked it almost a year ago, as soon as we knew the British Men of Letters were going to be there.  And they were accompanied by convention stalwarts such as Mark Shapard, Ruth Connell and the gorgeous Kim Rhodes.  There were also a few much smaller guests, such as Erica Cerra who plays Duma the angel and Magda Apanowicz, who was only in one episode of Supernatural, but has the enviable title of being the only woman to attempt tentacle sex with a tied-up Jensen (well, that we know of, anyway!)

I arrived at the Hilton around 2pm on Friday after a two and a half hour drive.  I met sasha_dragon in the bar, and while she very kindly went and got the drinks in, I availed myself of the little girls room.

As I was walking back from said room, I heard a man's voice say 'Hi Jane'.  When I looked up, it was Adam Fergus sittng at a table with David Haydn-Jones and Kim Rhodes having a drink and a spot of lunch!

I had a brief friendly exchange, then I left them alone to have their lunch in peace.

Shortly afterward, we were joined by chellexxx and then the fun began.

There was nothing going on until the opening ceremony at 7.30pm, so we checked into the room and grabbed some dinner.  This gave us a great opportunity to catch up, and the conversation mainly revolved around life in general, Supernatural (well, duh), and ideas for fangirl verse stories.

Hey gang!

Did you miss me?  It's okay, you're allowed not to :)

I've just got back from a weekend in the wilds of Birmingham with my lovelies sasha_dragon and chellexxx at Crossroads con.  We had such a great time.  The con wasn't massive, and was very well organised, so we had lots of time to relax and catch up.

I'll post the mugshots later this week, but here's a lovely little picture of us on Friday eveing waiting for the opening ceremony!

In the time-honoured Dizzo tradition of leaving everything to the last minute, I finished my final piece of Supernatural artwork ready for Crossroads con on Friday.

This time, I'll be catching up with the lovely Tahmoh, so a Gadreel (or is it Ezekiel) picture was in order ...

So, as it's Father's Day here in the UK, I thought a little tribute to my Dad was in order.

My Dad was born in London in 1944.  After leaving school, he trained as a printer and worked on our national newspapers for many years.  It's from my Dad I get my love of Shakespeare, Cricket and inappropriate humour.

He's also a very talented artist, and it's 100% from him that I get my creative leanings, and my love of art.  He's given up his art now, and devotes himself to supporting me with my art business - I know that there's no way I could make it work without him!

I have woefully few photos of my Dad because he's a stubborn bugger (I get that from him too), and he hates having his photo taken, but I've managed to snag a couple that are on display in frames and albums around the house ...

Here he is (on the right) with my Mum and my Grandad (his Dad) on the morning of my Mum and Dad's ruby wedding anniversary (2007)

PicturesCollapse )

My Dad and I have always been really close - yes, I'm a Daddy's girl.  We don't agree on everything - don't ever get us on politics or smoking - but either way, he's my Dad, my staunchest ally, and my hero!

Thanks Dad!

So this wekend I seem to have reached something of a milestone.  Well, either that, or I have far too much time on my hands ...

Anyway, tomorrow, I will post my 800th fic over on Fanfiction.net, my very first online home.

Probably about 70% of them are drabbles, but whatever - 800 stories over 9 years, whether they be 100 words or 20,000 is an achievement that I'm pretty darn proud of!

Anyhow, just in case anyone is interested - here's my 800th story ...

Genre: Humour
Characters: Castiel and Dean

Word Count: 200

Dean learns something new about angels every day.  Castiel, on the other hand, already knows eveything he needs to know about Dean ... like what an annoying little shit he can be!

Following on from my previous post about my nine year fandom anniversary, it occurred to me that it's nine years to the day that I wrote a little story called 'Sea Legs'.

This was one of the first stories I ever wrote, and my first attempt at anything of a Hurt/Comfort nature, so … here's a little bit of ancient history!

June is the month when I renew my car insurance, and I've been determined to do something about it this year.  It's been getting more and more expensive, especially over the last couple of years after I had to declare a speeding endorsement two and a half years ago (36 in a 30 limit, whoops, my bad!)

At the moment, I'm paying £600 a year, and that's ludicrous.  I'm a fifty-one year old woman with almost 30 years driving experience who drives a people carrier - I'm hardly a high-risk boy racer!

So, I had a crappy drive home from work last night, and when I got in, I was feeling bolshy and spoiling for a fight, so I decided then was as good a time any as any to contact my insurance company.

The conversation went thus...

"Hello, how can we help you?"
"Hello, yes, I'd like to know how much notice you'd need for me to cancel my policy."
"Oh, are you thinking of leaving us."
"Oh yes, too right I'm thinking of leaving you."
"Can I ask why you want to leave us?"
"Have a look at my policy and see if you can guess."
"Is it the cost?"
"Bingo!  I've been seeking quotes from other providers and the most expensive one I've found is just over half what you're charging me."
"Well, I'm sorry to hear that, let me see if there's anything I can do for you."
"I've had a look around our system and can see you're renewing at the end of the month.  I can do you a renewal price of £375."
"But your original renewal quote said £600.  Have you removed anything from my policy, or changed the excess or something?"
"No, this is a revised quote."
"So, if you can afford to drop 40% off the price of the quote, how the hell can you justify charging me £600 for the last two years?  If I hadn't phoned tonight, you'd just carry on overcharging me just because you can!"
"It's just the charge generated by the system..."
"You guys have got a right racket going.  OK, I'll accept the £375 quote, and I'll be on the phone for another reduction next year after my speeding endorsement expires."
"Oh, right, yes. Well, I can't make any guarantees …"
"I can't make any guarantees I'll stay with you if you don't."
"Well, I'll get the new quote out in the post for you."
"Thank you.  Goodnight!"

Then, after I got off the phone to those thieving gits, and because I felt like I was on a roll, I phoned the AA (our breakdown recovery service) which is due for renewal in August, and had exactly the same conversation with them and as a result got mine and Mr D's policy reduced from £300 per year to £220 per year!

I came downstairs after these calls feeling very pleased with myself, and £350 better off, only to find that my stupid crappy laptop was kaput again - this time out of warranty, so some of my £350 will have to go towards repairing that!!!

Such is life!!!  :/

Anyway, here, for your delectation, is some complimentary Jensen ably demonstrating my opinion toward insurance companies …

Yesterday, I amd my lovely work colleages headed down to the South Coast for a day of fun and - hopefully - sunshine.  We were headed for a town called Portsmouth, which is the home of the British Navy.  There is a historic dockyard where you can visit Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory, the Tudor Warship Mary Rose which was brought up from the bottom of the Solent in 1982 after it had lain there buried in silt for nearly 450 years, and various other ships of different types and eras.

Given that there was a maritime theme to the trip, and that when we go out together, hats are always the order of the day, there was really only one appropriate form of attire ...

This week marks nine years since I entered the Spn fandom!

Nine fabulous years during which, I have written almost 800 stories and drabbles, been inspired to draw almost 70 fan art pastel portraits and to learn how to create digital art, been to over 20 conventions, travelled throughout Europe, met you fabulous lot and made many lifelong friends, and found myself in ways I never thought possible.

Oh, yes, and I found these gorgeous buggers too ...Collapse )

And that's it really.

Just ... thank you!

It's been a fairly quiet couple of days here in Dizzo-land; like stir_of_echoes, Mr D and I spent yesterday evening warching the final episode of the fantastic Chernobyl series.

Most of us of a certain vintage remember the Chernobyl disaster, and the series was a perfect example of good, sympathetic, compelling high-quality storytelling that remained pretty faithful to the truth (so far as everyone knew it, given the soviet secrecy of the time!)

Also last night, (on a more cheerful note), I got into a Whatsapp conversation with a few Jus in Bello buddies, and because we are spread all over Europe, we ended up having a photo-sharing conversation about how dark it was at that point in time where we were, this was about 10.15 yesterday night.  This was the view from outside my front door at about 10.15 last night - I thought the sky was such a beautiful colour!

How does this compare with 10 pm (ish) where you are at the moment??

Well, it's one year to the day since my finest hour - NOT.

Because I actually thought that rolling down a hill in a big plastic ball might be a good idea, THIS is how I woke up on 4th June 2018 after the events of the previous day...

This is how things looked a week later ...

Warning - skankiness!Collapse )

Now, exactly one year later, I'm glad to say almost all back to normal (such as 'normal' is where I'm concerned).  My dear friend Dave can finally look me in the eye again - not that I ever blamed him, poor bloke!

The left shoulder has the doctor's projected 85% range of movement and, even better, no pain.   It appears to have dropped very slightly because I seem to have a never-ending battle with bra straps and gravity on the left hand side - and it has more clicks than a knitting pattern.

But all things considered, I'll take now over then - no contest!

Time is marching on and it's now less than three weeks to Crossroads convention in Brimingham where I will, once again, be teaming up with my gorgeous buddies sasha_dragon and chellexxx.

There is a mixed bag of guests attending - and one of them is lovely Ruth.

So, of course ... here's Rowena!

So, I've been slowly easing myself back into real life following Jus ins Bello, and not being helped at all by a dose of concrud which seems to be moving around between my nose, my throat and my ears with carefree abandon.  Today is the first day this week I haven't come home from work with a thumping earache in one or both ears, and I have a really dry cough and sore throat which comes and goes as it chooses.

I went to the docs yesterday, mostly to address the earache, and got some antibiotic eardrops, together with an anaesthetic spray for my throat.

So, yes - feeling a little better today - at least no earache, and I'm counting that as a massive WIN.  My ears still feel muffled and are inclined to pop occasionally - it feels like they never got off the plane - but things are definitely moving in the right direction!

In other news, I had a lovely fangirls get together in my hometown, London with sasha_dragon and chellexxx last weekend.  Because I'm an awesome friend - and a professional bad influence - I took them to Hamleys, the Rolls Royce of Toy Shops ... seven floors of fandom fun and fangirl regression!  As you can imagine, we were a picture of dignity and decorum in there.  I'm looking forward to catching up with them again in a few weeks at Crossroads Con.

Finally, it's been a nice week on the whole, so Mr D and I have been enjoying a few evenings sitting out in the garden after work.  (You can tell I'm not firing on all cylinders - in all those evenings, I haven't fancied one single glass of wine!)

While he was out in the garden, Mr D found a sink plunger in the back of his shed.

What's a man to do when he finds a sink plunger ...?

Why, play daleks of course!!

What?  Who said unblock the sink????
I mean, really...!

Rating: T
Genre: Gen, humour
Word count: 5,000

Summary: It's a grumpy time in the bunker.
Dean's grumpy because he's broken his ankle, and it hurts.  Sam's grumpy because he put his back out after carrying his great pie-stuffed lump of a brother back to the Impala, and it hurts.
Will the adorable little stray puppy Sam found shivering and crying beside the bunker help to lift the mood?  Castiel thinks not.
The brothers think he should just shut his angelic pie hole!
