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 :)

I mentioned a few days ago that I was working on a commission and I just wasn't feeling it.

I don't know exactly why that was, but I suspect it was a combination of factors; I'm very busy in my day job at the moment and working long hours so the creative muse is a bit weary, the picture is for Barry's Mum's neighbour, and I don't really like getting involved in anything that she organises, and the photo wasn't very good but when I questioned it, the owner was happy for me to use it.

But anyway, the picture is finished.  Two miniature Yorkies - Toby and Honey, and yes, Toby really does look that angry in his photo (which is why I questioned it!!!)

I got my J2 and JenMish photos and JIB next year.

So I'll get my Jensen squeeze after all.  Right now, I'm wearing a big grin, just like this but nowhere near as pretty ...

A little double drabble I wrote for the drabble challenge over on Fanfiction.net this weekend.  The challenge word was 'crack'.

Dean has very high standards when it comes to Baby…

Genre: Humour
Rating: K+
Characters: Dean, Sam, Impala
Spoilers/warnings: none
Word count: 200
Disclaimer: I don’t own them


“Dean, you can’t wash the car – you’ve broken your wrist.”

“Cracked, Sam, I’ve just cracked it. That hot nurse in ER said so.”

“Well, whatever, broken or cracked, you can’t go washing the car.”

“But she needs it – she’s covered in road dust.”

“Can’t we just take her to the car wash downtown?”


“Alright, well, shall I do it?”


“Yes Dean.  I am capable of washing a car, you know.”

“Well, okay. But make sure you use the soft chamois on her.”


“And use a different one for each panel so you don’t transfer the grime.”

“Okay …”

“And use the wax cleaner in a green bottle – she doesn’t like the one in the black bottle.”

“… ooookay.”

“And when you buff her afterwards, use a cotton cloth, so you don’t leave lint on her.”


“And use the vinegar-based glass cleaner in the blue bottle on her windows.”


“Remember to lift her wipers before you clean her windshield, and only use the soft bristle brush on her alloys so they don’t get scratched.”

“Anything else?”

“Well, that’s her outside; now when you do her interior …”

“You know what Dean?  You’re right.  It’s only a cracked wrist – how much harm can washing the car do?”

So, it's a quiet weekend.

Mr D has gone down to Devon for the weekend to catch up with some friends, so I have the house to myself, and I've been taking advantage of the time to do a few chores, and make a start on a commission of two miniature yorkshire terriers.

You know how every now and again, you embark on a creative job - art work or fic or video or whatever, and you just don't feel it?  This is me with this picture.  I'm poncing around with it for half an hour, then getting up to do something, then sitting down again... I don't know why, this one just hasn't grabbed me. The muse isn't co-operating and I can't lose myself in it at the moment.  But, it's work; it's money, and I should be grateful for that.

In other news, Jus in Bello J2M double photo ops were released yesterday.  Now, Jus in Bello has always been crazy mad when it comes to getting passes and photo ops, but this year it seems to have gone nuclear!  Perhaps people think that because the show's coming to an end JIB will too - and of couse, that's very possible - and so everyone is just going all out for it.

The J2M single photo ops were released three weeks ago and the Jensen ones were all snapped up within the first second that they were released.  That's right, you read that correctly; the first SECOND.

Jared's and Misha's all went very shortly afterward.  Unfortunately, I missed out on a Jensen single which I was gutted about, (soneone sent the request  for me as I was away from home that day, and they sent it bang on time, but it arrived just a nanosecond too late) but I did manage to get hold of a Jared and Misha op, so it's not all bad.

That's why I'm so hoping I'll get my hands on a double op - I've requested two - a J2 and a Jensen&Misha.  Again, the organiser was overwhelmed with emails and they were all snapped up within a second or two.  The lovely herminekurotowa sent my mail for me because I just don't trust my internet speed, and we've got the email to say that it arrived ok.  The organiser tweeted last night to say that all photo ops were assigned and there were still over 200 emails left!!

Apparently, they're going to contact the people who didn't get anything later today, and maybe into tomorrow, so if I don't get one of those emails, then I've got at least one of what I requested, and I will get my Jensen squeeze after all!

So at the moment, I'm glancing at my email like it's a rabid animal, and every time an email pings up, I get a little palpitation.  If I haven't got an email by the time the organiser tweets that all unlucky people have been contacted - then I can breathe again!

Honestly, the things I do for those boys!!

Ultimately, I know I'm lucky to be going to JIB at all so this is totally a first world problem - don't waste any sympathy on me! :D

But anyway, here's some gorgeous dorky boys, because you all deserve it!!

If you remember last year, I set myself the birthday goal of doing something for charity that didn't just involve donating money, and so I put my name down to do the Pretty Muddy 5k race for life in aid of Cancer Research.

And then ...

It all went a bit tits up!

A few weeks after the 'incident that shall not be named' my fracture clinic doctor eventually said an emphatic 'no' to the idea of a race/assault course, and so the idea was shelved.  However, several lovely people had already sponsored me to the tune of over £100, and I really didn't want to let them down, so now my shoulder is about as healed as it's going to be - the race is back on!

Therefore, on the 21st September, I shall be running the Basingstoke 5k Pretty Muddy race for Cancer Research, along with my friend and neighbour, Becky.  It'll be great to finally get it done, considering it's been nearly 18 months since I first decided to do it.

If any of you fancy sponsoring me for this ritul humiliation, the link is below:


Anything you can spare for this great cause will be gratefully received, and even if you can't - your best wishes for me to finish the race in one piece will also be appreciated!!!

Back last year when Mr D turned the big 5-0, I bought him a special gift for his big birthday - a flight in a tiger moth biplane.

Because Mr D's birthday is in the Autumn (October), the flying season is more or less over by then; so he had to wait until spring this year to book his flight, and it ended up being ... today!

So, both taking a day off work for this event, this morning we headed up to Duxford, a big airfield in the east of England which also houses a branch of the Imperial War Museum.  It's about a ninety-minute drive from home, and we'd got within about ten minutes of the place when Mr D's mobile rang, and I took the call.

The bloody flight had to be cancelled because of the wind strength!

However, as we were so close, we decided to press on regardless, as we could at least go to the museum, and maybe rebook the flight.

When we got there and checked in, the flight company were very apologetic, but obviously it'ss not their fault, and they have to put safety first, it was disappointing though because there were lots of other small planes going up.  The wind was within range for them, but biplanes are so flimsy and light, their wind limit is next to nothing!

To be fair, the flight company offered Mr D an hour in a Cessna as an alternative but, as he said, he's done that with knobs on.  He's flown in Cessnas a dozen times or more - he's even flown them himself; there's nothing new to experience, so he decided to hang on for the biplane.  So, they're sending him an email this week, and then he can book another time.  And I'll keep everything crossed for the weather :D  (being British, my expectations in that respect are very low!!!!)

We ended up having a nice couple of hours mooching round the museum before we headed home and had a leisurely afternoon at home!

Do you think Dean would appreciate a flight in a biplane??

So that was GISH for another year.

It was a fun week, albeit with a smaller team than usual, and we never got the opportunity to get together at any stage to do any group challenges, but even so with a team of nine (of which two ended up not taking part - one because of real life and one because she disappeared from the face of the earth), we still managed to complete forty tasks!

So, for what it's worth ... here are my contributions to our GISH efforts this year: 

More GISH hereCollapse )

I'm just checking in after a busy weekend, while I'm having a bit of downtime on the ferry home!

It's been busy, but in the best kind of way.  My dapplegrey art show has been wonderful this weekend - today has been storming; I've barely sat down and - to be honest - am completely knackered, but the dapplegrey art coffers are well and truly replenished!

Best of all, this little dude headed off to a wonderful new home today...

As a nice diversion, my Mum's younger sister and niece came over for the weekend, and we were able to catch up for a family meal on Saturday night at a nice Pub in Newport called the Bargeman's Rest (one of my favourites, and my recommendation!)

So yes, all-in-all a nice weekend, to round off a wonderful GISH week!

I haven't been around much these last few days, but I have been using my time very constructively ... so long as your definition of constructive is pretty flexible!

I've been co-ordinating a fundraising week in aid of the Care Workers Charity at work, which has been great fun.  So far we've raised £582.  I'm aware of at least £350 more - I really hope we can make it over £1,500 when everything is totted up.

In addition, I've been preparing for my first big art show of the Summer season which kicks off next Saturday, which, in turn, always clashes with GISH (formerly known as GISHWHES).  So GISH kicked off last Saturday, and that means my evenings this week are filled with weirdness and wonderfulness as I work my way through that.  I have something lined up for tomorrow night, which I can't tell you about, but let's just say - it involves my tongue!!

In other news, I had a WONDERFUL day at London Film and Comic Con on Saturday where I met up with our gorgeous milly_gal and the almost as gorgeous John Barrowman.

Here are the mugshots...

Pictures be here ...Collapse )

So that's my week ... normal Jensen-lovin' service will be resumed shortly!

Sitting out in the garden a couple of nights ago, Mr D  was most distressed when a bumblebee flew into the open door of his workshop.  It's basically a metal shed, but Mr D is a qualified cycle mechanic and over the years has amassed an iimpressive collection of tools, which are all locked in the shed.

He got up and ran into the shed; "get out you daft sod..."

He's clambering around in the shed, over benches and his bike stand, desperately trying to evict said bumblebee.

"You stupid git, get out - you'll be shut in all night and you'll die!"

I looked up from my glass of wine.  "He can't understand you, you know..."

At this point, Mr D is dismantling his entire workshop so that he can get to this bee, and coax it outside, blaspheming expansively as he's carrying tools and equipmen outside.  He's even talking about leaving the workshop open overnight - exposing a lifetime's collecion of tools -  for one bumblebee.

Eventually, the offending bee obliged and flew away, without a word of gratitude!

Mr D: "Oh, you're welcome fuzzy arse... you'd better pollenate my fucking bay tree for this, you fluffy yellow bastard!!"

After my attempt to run the Pretty Muddy 5k race in aid of Cancer research last year (the last of my milestone birthday goals) was thwarted due to shoulder issues, it's back on the agenda and I will finally be doing the race on the 21st September 2019 along with my lovely neighbour, Becky.

If you wanted to sponsor me, HERE'S the link to my fundraising page, and I would - of course - be forever grateful! (if you were kind enough to sponsor me last year, I don't expect you to do it again, but obviously if you wanted to - I won't stop you!!!)

Second time lucky!

I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm nerding out like a good'un over the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landings.

I was only 16 months old when it all happened back in 1969, and so unfortunately I was far too young to have remembered it all happening at the time, so I'm living vicariously through all the TV shows and internet articles that have been floating around over the last few weeks.

Tonight Mr D and I are celebrating this momentous event with a curry, a bottle of wine and one of my absolute favourite movies (which just happens to be all about the Moon landing)...

And, of course, those Winchester boys are marking the occasion too ...

Today is the 37th birthday of our lovely Jared Padalecki.  A great big lanky goof of a man with a huge brain and an even huger heart who fills a room with sunshine.

Jared's birthday is a great reason to celebrate and so, I present a little Wee!Sam-centric drabble featuring one of the most positive influences in Sam's life (who, for once, isn't Dean).

Happy Birthday lovely Jared ... many, many happy returns ... thank you for being you!

This is a little exchange that took place a couple of evenings ago:

Me: *bemoaning the fact that even after a year of trying, I still run like I'm pulling a double-decker bus*
Mr D: Well, if you're making no progress, and you obviously don't enjoy it, why don't you sign up for Parkrun or something?"
Me: That's the weekend, isn't it?
Mr D: Yes, Saturday morning I think.
Me: Why the hell would I want to get up at the fart of dawn on Saturday to flog my arse round some bloody park when I could be chilling out down the coffee shop with a cappuccino and a croissant?
Mr D: Why do you think I said 'why don't YOU sign up for Parkrun?'
