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.

http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2384416/Dizzo

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 :)

Once again Jus in Bello was a mad and wonderful week in beautiful Roma.  The conventon is great, and obviously it's a blast seeing our boys again, but for me, one of the highlights is meeting up with all my gorgeous buddies from all over Europe.  They included amberdreams, herminekurotowa, xlittleangx, stellamira, dean_hugs_sammy, sillie82, heavenli24 to name but a few

It took a couple of days for us all to arrive from our various starting points, and so as usual, the first two days, Wednesday and Thursday at JIBland were fairly leisurely.  From a personal point of view, I didn't have any photos for JIBland, so I sat in on a few panels, and used the time for catching up with long lost friends.

On Wednesday evening, a group of us decided to reacquaint ourselves with Rome, and headed out for a meal in a nice little bistro just beside the pantheon.  Before we left, the opportunity for a great photo presented itself ... partcularly as this year was the 10th anniversary of JIB.




Fun and Larks in Roma (long picture post!)Collapse )

Italian air workers are on strike today, and loads of flights out of Italy are being cancelled.  So, many of my JIBcon buddies have had to find an extra nights accommodation because they now can't fly home until tomorrow.  :(

My flight this afternoon is still listed on the British Airways website as being on time, so I'm keeping everything crossed.  It's gonna be a loooong day!

Wish me luck, gang!   :)

In the meantime here are some sleepy boys ably demonstrating what I feel like doing ...

So, it's the day after JIB again, and here I am, chilling at the hotel bar - same table, same post-con blues as previous years.

JIB has always been magical, but there was an extra layer to the magic this year - as well as being JIB's 10th anniversary, the knowledge that we are now entering show's final year gave it a distinctly bittersweet edge, I believe even our boys felt it - there was just the merest touch of melancholy in some of their panels.

But, that aside, we have all enjoyed another fabulous JIBCON, and I wouldn't have missed it for the world.  It's been great to catch up with friends from near and far, and once again spend time with our gorgeous guys.

Some personal highlights for me (for which I will go into more detail in after I get home)

  • Dining with dear friends in the shadow of the Pantheon

  • Asking Adam Fergus a question in his panel

  • A close encounter in the queue for Jared's autograph whiich I will NEVER forget

  • And my Jared photo op which will forever be one of the best I have ever had  XD


And the best news is, JIB 10 WON'T BE THE LAST JIB!!!  Jensen has somehow managed to wrap Daniela, JIB organiser, round his little finger at least one more time, there were a lot of happy tears when that was announced!

So, I've missed you guys loads, and can't wait to dive back into the Lj waters with you all.   I will post pictures and updates once I'm back home with access to my scanner - I fly home tomorrow afternoon.

In the meantime, here's a sneak peek of my weekend, with three random dudes I happened across ...


Three Men and a FangirlCollapse )

Hey!
Just dropping by to let you lovelies all know that I'm still alive here in the madness that is Jus in Bello.
Having a wonderful time and of course, today was our first exposure to J2M for the weekend, so you could cut through the oestrogen in the air with a knife.
I've had a few photos so far, and I like them all, but a word of warning, I nearly burst something when I first saw my Jared pic!!!
He has excelled himself 🤣🤣🤣

Our wonderful friend and Lj stalwart sasha_dragon is having a birthday today.  Now far be it for me to spill the beans, but it's a special one!

So, while I am out of circulation for a few days, this fine genteman has kindly offered to do the necessary, and pass on my warmest wishes for this birthday and beyond ...



Wasn't that kind of him!!


Extra birthday bonus ...Collapse )

I wanted to try to get one more picture done before I left for JIB on Tuesday.  I started working on a pictre of Jack for Alex to sign last weekend, but I got about halfway through it and I knew I wasn't happy with it, so I binned it.

I started again yesterday, and finished off this afternoon ...

And here he is!



Now I can start my packing!!!

I worked the Lightwater Village Fete today, and it was dappegrey art's first show of the year.

I almost didn't do it; it's an outdoor show, and the weather forecast was very unsettled  Even though I have a gazebo, it's only showerproof and my stock is so vulnerable to moisture and wind, that I'm always very cautious, and considered crying off a couple of times this morning.

But eventually, although it was cloudy, this morning looked fairly dry so I decided to chance it and go ahead and set up.  Luckily, I made the correct judgment call this time, because although I thought I would be dodging showers on and off all day, I eventually dodged one shower, and spent the rest of the day standing in blistering, unbroken sunshine and now I look like I've been sunbathing under the hole in the ozone layer!!



All in all, it was a very positive start to dapplegrey art's year, and a highlight of the day was seeing these two beauties.

They're Suffolk Punches and Suffolks are one of the rarest heavy horse breeds in the world.  There are only about 300 in the whole of the UK, but the awesome news is that because of dedicated protection and breeding plans, their numbers are gradually rising - long may it continue!

I can't believe that on Tuesday, I head off to Rome for Jus in Bello convention again.  How has it been a whole year???  I'm so excited as I always am; excited to catch up with J2M again and excited to catch up with a horde of British and European buddies including amberdreams, xlittleangx, herminekurotowa, sillie82, stellamira, sinfulslasher, dean_hugs_sammy, and  heavenli24, just for starters!

I can't believe that this will be my seventh JIB - my first was 2013, and I've attended every year since then.  I have to accept the fact that there's a very real possibility this may be our last JIB, with it being the 10th anniversary JIB, as well as being the last Supernatural Hellatus.  But who knows, I could well be wrong - I'd be delighted to be proved wrong in this case!!

But, if it is the last JIB, yes it will be sad - an ending of something magical, but I will also always be thankful of the treasured memories and international friendships it has blessed me with.

So, just for jolly, here are seven wonderful memories from seven years of Jus In Bello!




Pictures be here!Collapse )

It occurred to me that it's been five years since I compiled my first collection of Jensen midriff appreciation HERE and so I decided it's high time that I brought our studies of the Ackles equatoral region up to date.

Alas, glimpses of this delightful area of outstanding natural beauty are as rare as rainbow-farting uncorns, so when a fleeting coup d'oeil does appear, it is our sworn duty to appreciate it in all it's brief and exquisite glory.

Therefore, it is my pleasure to present this picspam of ...

Jensen Accidental Tummy Peekage, part deux

So, this morning, Mr Dizzo and I strolled up to the village centre for a coffee and croissant at breakfast time, and as we were walking down to the coffee shop, we were passed by a van bearing the name 'GIT Direct'. (FYI, apparently GIT Direct is a logistics company based at Heathrow Airport!)

Now, this appealed to my inner-ten-year-old-schoolboy, and I pointed it out to Mr D.  (In case any of you aren't familiar with the word, here in the UK 'git' is a mild swear word, an insult - sort of in the same vein as 'jerk'.)

And so, as we carried on walking through the village Mr D was on a roll, and here are the edited highlights ...

"Git Direct.  We've got all the gits you'll ever need.  Hundreds of gits.  Old gits, young gits, fat gits, thin gits, big gits, small gits, clever gits, stupid gits.  You want gits?  We got them.  You don't even have to wait for your gits.  You'll get them directly.  Gits on demand - one git, two gits, red git, blue gits.  No delays, your gits delivered straight to your door. Instant gittery on your doorstep.  Git discounts for bulk buys - get your gits half price if you order lots of gits ..."

Try explaining why you're crying with laughter when you walk into a coffee shop!

Today, amberdreams, xlittleangx, jj1564 and I all headed out together for a lovely day out at Hever Castle, which is less than ten minutes away from jj1564's home.  We were joined by JJ's lovely sister Brenda and for the most part, the sun even shone for us!

Hever Castle, as some of you may be aware, was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, King Henry the Eighth's most famous wife, and it's easy to imagine her life as you walk around the beautiful manicured gardens and tudor buildings.

It seems bizarre to travel to Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world and not see anything except the inside of the Hilton Hotel, Charles de Gaulle Airport.  But I saw other glorious sights intead, namely Matt Cohen, Richard Speight Junior, Rob Benedict, David Haydn-Jones, Adam Fergus, Felicia Day, Kim Rhodes, Brianna Buckmaster, Ruth Connell, Sebastian Roche and Alex Calvert.

I was meetiing my friend Wendy, who was catching the train from Antwerp to come to the con, and we were sharing a room over the weekend.  Wendy had a VIP pass which meant she was going to be here there and everywhere during the day and in evening activities too, and I had a Demon pass, so I knew  was going to spend the majority of the weekend alone - or as alone as you can be at a con.

On the Friday night, the organisers had somehow got permssion to show the season Finale, so everyone sat in the panel hall together and watched itt.  Even though I'd already watched it that morning, it was great to watch it again in a group, and see the reactions of the other attendees.  After we watched the episode, Matt and Richard hosted a karaoke party which, of course, we rounded off with Eye of the Tiger and Carry On My Wayward Son!

You're never very alone at a con and, true to form, within two hours of sitting down in the panel room on the Saturday morning, I had met two lovely ladies - Mieke from the Netherlands and Mouna from Paris, and we ended up spending a large part of the weekend together.

There was a great line-up of guests, and they were all brilliant fun.  I particularly gravitated towards David Haydn-Jones and Adam Ferguson (otherwise kown as the British Men of Letters) because I luvs them!!!

I dont kow whether to be flattered or concerned by my stalkerish tendencies that they both greeted me as an old friend, and Adam even remembered me by name!!

I had meet and greets with them both, and they both talked about how much they loved doing the conventions and how grateful they were to the fans.  David thought that Mr Ketch was the best character he'd ever played, and both of them hoped their caracters could come back for show's final season!  We all agreed that we hoped they would too.

One of the highlights of the weekend was a surprise appearance by Baby - I've never seen an underground carpark so popular!

So, all in all, a great weekend.  Here are the mugshots:

Someone very special dropped in to see us at the darklight convention in Paris - please excuse her licence plate, she wasn't 'dressed' for the occasion when this picture was taken!

Here are a couple more pictures of her being rightfully adored by me and a couple of lovely ladies I met at the con...

Hey gang!
I'm just dropping by to let you know I'm still alive and kicking, and having a great time at Darklight Con in Paris. Unfortunately my tight schedule means that I haven't had the chance to venture out into the city centre, and I fly home tomorrow, but I've had a ball meeting some great guests, and fallen just a little bit more in love (if that were indeed possible) with those gorgeous British Men of Letters.
Plushie Sam and Dean have also been having their own adventure, and have met their own hero ... Our should that be heroine?


More fun and larks to follow soon!

I ventured up to London yesterday afternoon, and had a wonderful evening with the gorgeous cuddyclothes

We'd talked about meeting up when she first told me she was coming over to London a couple of months ago, and it was fabulous to finally meet up!

We met up at Waterloo, under the clock, because - well, when you meet at Waterloo, that's what you've gotta do!!  And from there, we went for a lovely stroll in the sunshine along the South Bank.

We ended up in the lovely restaurant in Sea Containers House (which is a lot more sophisticated than it sounds), and I don't think we stopped yakking all evening :)

So that's another wonderful online fandom friend I've been blessed to be able to finally meet in person.  I've done this a few times now, and it never gets any less special.

Thank you cuddyclothes, it was an absolute pleasure, and I hope this won't be the last time we meet up.

Safe travels my friend xx

It's been such a delightful Easter break.

With four days off work and every single day has been glorious sunshine.  Aside from Saturday when I ventured forth to Kent and went to visit the lovely Miss jj1564, I've spent the rest of the weekend sitting in the garden with Mr D, eating too much, drinking too much and just enjoying a few days rest and relaxation that I really needed.

Although I've been relaxing, I haven't been being idle - that's not my style.  So as well as writing two drabbles, starting my spn_bigpretzel Spring Fic Exchange story and making a couple of posts the spn_on_parade Easter Eggstravaganza, I managed to complete these:

Jody - tidied up and tweaked from the original picture



Donna - finished today!



Back to work tomorrow - at least it's a short week!!
