I've been swapping some care packages with some people lately (ugh, SUPER fun, I'm addicted) and a few different people asked me what I put in them so here is the guideline I kind of follow for posterity when putting one together.

 photo gift_guide_photo_zpse5897a5c.jpg


+ Sweets/candy - Inexpensive but awesome way to fill up spare space in the package. I'm totally not above using a package of freddos instead of bubble wrap.

+ Handmade/DIY bits - jewelery, accessories, cards, figurines, clothing - whatever you make! (I am completely BAD at anything crafty unfortunately)

+ Fun accessories - Items such as gloves, shoe laces, jewelery (no diamonds - fun junky stuff only. I love candy necklaces for example...), hair bits, head bands, scarves... etc.

+ Paper stuff - books, printed stories, recipes, song lyrics, pictures, postcards, photos, magazine clippings, cards, drawings, paintings, sketches.

+ Fannish stuff - I've sent toy impalas (the car, not the deer), wolf hats, avengers mugs, mini Hawkeye and Nick Fury figurines that I randomly found in a dollar store. (They had nothing but Hawkeye and Nick Fury figures - SO WEIRD).

+ DVDs, CDs and Games - I would probably stay away from (even mix CDs) and there's always the region issue, plus they're pricey and different countries have different legal issues - don't want to get into trouble!

+ Country specific souvenirs - always awesome!

+ I'm going to get back into podding because I really liked it and have been devouring podfic myself at the moment because my commute is B-O-R-I-N-G. I'm going to finally edit and post the fics I have done already and then... I'm not sure. Maybe hit me up if you're open to your stuff being podded, know people who are or have a story in mind you always wished was podded and know the author is good with it. There's a story of [personal profile] tabaqui's I've been meaning to do so I'll get on with that too. Anyone also got a good suggestion of what host site to use? I usually use sendspace but I'm assuming there's better.

+ I am doing 2 TW big bangs - one Track 1 where I'll get an author picking me (hopefully!) and a track 2 sign up. I might need some extra beta/cheerleading because I write linear so sometimes stuff doesn't make sense and I'm an Aussie s y'know, a thong is not a thong. :) My track 1 fic is actually already at 14k because it's doing double-duty as my last charity fic with permission from [personal profile] oxoniensis. <3!

+ I just finished Series 3 of Shameless and NEED SEASON 4 OMG. Anyone able to help out? I hate to ask but again, Aussie and paranoid about using sources I don't trust/aren't regionally available argh. (Comments are screened - I'll unscreen anything to do with points 1 & 2 :D).

Every now and again I think, ugh, haven't posted anything in a while. I've still been reading but the new formatting for LJ doesn't show right on my work computer for some reason so I have been kind of skipping it. I'm still here though!

- Thinking about getting back into podding more recently - I should finish the three stories I actually have already recorded which are just waiting for me to edit, yeesh. I've been devouring a lot of podfic because my work commute is BORING so as always, got any recs, point me to them.

- I'm signing up for [profile] teenwolf_bb again this round. I'm thinking of horribly punishing myself and signing up twice but since I have [personal profile] oxoniensis's charity fic currently sitting only 1k under the word minimum and she might like some accompanying art in trade for waiting a little longer, I figure what the hell.

- It's a short week next week, THANK GOODNESS. I feel a little burnt out lately. I have the long weekend Monday and then I'm taking the next Friday off for my birthday because everyone deserve a 3 day weekend on their birthday and that means I only have to do a 3 day work week too. It'll feel like a mini break.

- I want to go on holiday again but I don't want to travel by myself and my friend who I went to Hawaii with unfortunately has a mortgage, whereas I am (currently, soon to end, sniff) footloose and fancy free. Maybe I should just put on my big girl pants and actually look at solo travel options. Another girl friend of mine does it all the time and she always has a blast because she ends up meeting heaps of new people. I AM SUCH A WUSS THOUGH.

Ugh, I've have fallen into the rabbit hole of Shameless. I'm one ep away from finishing season 2 and have season 3 ready to go. I'm not sure my feels can quite take how quickly I'm getting through it but ugh, this SHOW.

So, anyone got any recs? Fic recs, tumblrs I should be following to get my Lip or Ian fixes (Lip/happy and Ian/Mickey are basically my goto pairings... hee!), access to Season 4 because I'm gonna need it I think. Ways I can hug Fiona because she really needs it.

Ugh, punching me in the feels.

I'm probably too late to the party in reblogging this but in case anyone is tumbling around this site like a tumbleweed and hasn't seen the above yet, go check it out. I just put my info up but I'm the 1192nd comment (ha!) so if you want to take it as an opportunity to poke me if you've friended me a while ago and I haven't done anything about it, feel free! I can get through my flist in under an hour every couple of days and that just doesn't feel right.

I'm here but check it out for other peeps.

Have the Gravity soundtrack they could sling my way? I've been trying to actually purchase it but apparently sites don't want my dollars - I even bought it on CD and the order got cancelled. I'm starting to suspect a conspiracy. I just want some music to write to and you know when you get something stuck in your brain and nothing else will do?

Comments are screened.

ETA: Sorted - thank you!!

-> I've posted my third TW charity fic, just two more to go!

Relationship Status: It's complicated

Okay, I know this is a huge stretch for you, but can you please pretend you're like, into me?


-> Went to Nine Inch Nails last night and had a blast. They were doing a double act with Queens of the Stone Age but luckily NIN were on first and the friend of mine I'd gone in with was just there for the support act so he was happy to bail after NIN. I only know one song of QOTSA so I wasn't too fussed to be a zombie at work the next day for them. I felt kinda old though going, welp, 10PM, that's it for me. Heh.

-> I was on carer's leave from work last week for looking after my parents after dad's surgery, now I feel like I need ANOTHER week off just to recover from having to talk to ridic hopeless government agencies for a week. What's good though is that Dad said he was really glad he had me there because he didn't think he could handle all those phonecalls and getting the runaround. I lean on my Dad a LOT (he's always been my rock and we've gotten heaps closer in the last few years as mum's health has declined) so it's nice for him to be able to have had everything taken care of for him for once.

-> Life is returning to normal so I should be around more now! :)

-> Realised that I'd mostly being keeping the paid LJ account because I didn't want to give up my user icons. It's not really a good reason and I can function on a free account (mostly because I actually do my posting from DW because the LJ text box does weird things now) so am going to do a *sniff* cut.

-> Posting the third charity fic today. Hopefully with fourth done in about a week and then just the lovely [personal profile] oxoniensis and her TW dragon rider AU to go! That one's been a little slower going because I basically scrapped the story I initially started writing and began again - so much better now.

-> I just devoured 4 seasons of Parks and Rec. I'd always thought I wouldn't like it which... I have no idea why. I don't know whether it's because the first season is a little clunky and I'd only been catching snatches of random eps here and there. I love it, I love every little bit of it, including a strong female friendship being at the core of the show. My flatmate started out heckling me watching it because he was going, "this show, this is terrible" I think because he'd done the same thing as me and seen bits out of context and by the end he was watching with me and all like, "oh my god, this IS good." Ha! My power to incept people is strong. I NEED fifth season like breathing because it looks super cute - I could watch Leslie and Ben being adorable forever.

I need something fannish because it's been too heavy around here lately.

I have 3 charity fics and 1 birthday (belated! Ugh!) to go and AM SO CLOSE TO FINISHING LIKE ALL OF THEM OMG. Having this on-hold portion of my life bites but I'm going to do eet anyway. Give myself a brain break and get back to writing proper.

Anyway, here's a snippet of one of my TW charity fics - this one is for [personal profile] oxoniensis and is the furthest from finished hence the posting of the fic bit because it's going to take me a while. I have PLANS.

I got a shiny new computer - I splurged and got a Sony Vaioiaioaioa (sp???) and a lot of people have been saying Windows 8 is pants and I get why it would be for normal laptops and desktops but with the touchscreen laptop I really like it. It makes everything super easy and I think it's mostly made for the touchscreen. (Apparently it has a non-marking screen. Ha! Fingerprints ago-go! I'm assuming they just wipe off or maybe my flatmate just has super greasy sausage fingers).

Basically - I always feel weird buying something new for myself when I have something that still works that carries out the same function. I've had the same television since I was 21. It's hugmungous and it sits on top of a chest of drawers in my room and if I got a flatscreen I would actually be able to put other things on top of my drawers as well (I don't have a lot of surfaces to put things on) but I still resist because the television still works.

The laptop I already had basically has a fritzed connection between the screen and the computer itself, in that the screen will go black if you touch it the wrong way and you have to jiggle it gently for ages to get it to come back. Which basically means I have a glorified desktop because you can't move my laptop around. YET, I still wibbled about getting a new one because it still 'worked'.

I've always been )

Hi All,

I have some pretty serious family stuff happening so am basically not going to be around much for the next week or two depending on how it all pans out.

Be good lovelies and hopefully I will be back to regularly scheduled programming very soon!

- I will be travelling till Monday - going to country Victoria for a wedding with a WHOLE lot of my friends which will be awesome so I won't be around for a few days. We're staying in Melbourne the Thursday night so I'm assuming I'll have internet then but then we're going to a town with a population of 700 so not too sure about that one. Heh.

- 3 charity fics and one birthday fic to go before I'm caught up on stuff (oh, and second part of the WIP I posted!). I keep chipping away at the charity fics, slowly but surely. Basically I'll write during lunchtimes at work and when I get home but the last 2 weeks I've been by myself at work so haven't really had a lunch time and have fallen into a stupor when I get home. I manage to watch a Park & Rec episode or two and then bed so not much writing getting done there. I WILL post a couple of sections of my tumblr fic on my tumblr tonight though so watch out for that!

- It will be the first time for our three cats in a cattery over the weekend because my flatmates are going to the wedding too. We at least found one that will put them all in one cage together but I still don't think they'll like it very much.

these are my poopheads when they're actually behaving )
Title: Vampires, man. Not to be trusted
Author: [profile] kellifer_fic
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Work Type: Fic
Category: Stiles/Derek; Futurefic
Rating: PG
Spoilers: None
Written For: [personal profile] sorchasilver
Summary:

Stiles appreciates Derek worrying about him being overwhelmed but he really could have used a few overenthusiastic werewolves and impatient humans for his homecoming. He’s felt disconnected because of his forced isolation and would have at least liked to have had Scott on his doorstep when he got there.

Snagged from [personal profile] killabeez because I am B-O-R-E-D.

This post is for drive-by nuggets of joy about your favorite character! So here we go. Give me your favorite (or a favorite) character's name in comments, and I will tell you one thing* about them that fills me with joy. It can be a fandom I am in, used to be in, maybe mentioned once in a blue moon


*or two, or three, or five. I've never been known to stick to a number.

Summary:

"Well, you're a werewolf," Stiles says.

Kevin has always had a pretty good poker face, but Stiles takes him completely by surprise, enough that there's a tell-tale pause that lasts a beat too long for the, "No I'm not," to be believed.

-> Firstly - happy New Year guys. Man, was it ever hard to get up for work this morning, yikes. (the 2nd, not the 1st, ye gads) I was off since the 23rd and it was a nice little break but as my alarm went off this morning, I wondered why on earth I hadn't taken off today and tomorrow also. I was tempted to schlub at home like my flatmates ended up doing for New Years Eve but no, I girded myself and actually went to a party. It was a costume party so I went as a Steampunk Fairy and ended up having a lovely time and got lots of compliments which is always a good start to the year. :)

-> Speaking of which - Check out Vintage or Tacky - for the costume party - I used the steampunk makeup tutorial which was super clear and easy to follow. I didn’t even have to do a trial - worked great and looked awesome first time. I had it playing on a tablet sat next to me in front of my bedroom mirror. She’s inspired me to branch out and buy makeup and crazy stuff like blush and bronzer which I NEVER do. I’ve always been a foundation and eyeliner girl but looking at photos of me from the party, I’m actually happy with them and how I looked which I NEVER am. Was super helpful to me because she basically has my complexion and eye colour which was awesome.

I mean, is it just me, or is makeup an "assumed knowledge" for girls? I'm in my thirties and still had no idea what I was doing. I was a foundation and eyeliner girl because I had NO CLUE how to do anything else. I've basically been checking out youtube tutorials and nabbing stuff they recommend and am levelling up slowly on the makeup stuff. I mean, I didn't even know what brushes to use and that using a big fluffy brush to put on your powder rather than the crappy sponge that comes with it is MUCH better and PRIMER. My god - eye makeup that DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE THE ENTIRE NIGHT because of primer. I was terrified of liquid eyeliner and didn't even know that gel eyeliner was a thing.

-> I'm posting my first completed charity fic later today - it's gen TW Team Human outsider POV for [personal profile] thady. Something completely different for me so fun! The rest of the stories are Stiles/Derek and are hopefully coming VERY soon.

It's not like he forgets about the scar. Just, sometimes it takes him off guard when he's half asleep or run down. It's there, a new companion that reminds him of the world he now lives in, how it's changed and what it's cost. Still, sometimes he'll blink at it owlishly in the mirror like he's doing now, at the way it runs alongside his collar bone and down. It even separates a mole into two neat halves.

Hello! I'm still reading my flist even though my posts are few and far between. I'm not even on tumblr as much at the moment - work is kicking my butt with long days and I kind of just want to read fic and go to sleep. My bookmarked stories is getting a little out of control but people are just producing SO MUCH and it's all fantastic. I'm only really reading off recs, not even finding stuff on my own and I still can't keep up!

- TW Big Bang posting on Sunday! (Actually, Monday afternoon for me) My artist is the wonderful [personal profile] maichan and I HAVEN'T SEEN THE ART YET BUT ALREADY KNOW IT WILL BE AWESOME. I am so super excited.

- 5 charity fics ongoing. I have actually finished one and am just editing, have 2 about 3/4 of the way through, 1 about half done and then one just started (just received the prompt). So basically, expect an avalanche of fic from me in the next few weeks.

- I really want to get the podfics done I've been promising because I suck and just keep putting it off. I've actually got three done save the editing which is basically just me listening and deleting the gaps where I had voice-o's (is that the podfic equivalent of typos??). Probably the people who were getting podfics don't even remember I was doing them! Then I will make (super bad) covers and post. I'm not even kidding about the super-badness. I only *just* learnt how to put text on a picture in paint without having a giant text box. For serious, I am crap. It's pretty hilarious I'm in IT.
- I have 5 (!!) charity fics to do - 2 of them I have definite plot and have started, 2 are in the back and forth stage with the recipients but I’m getting closer to nutting out what they want and 1 I’m waiting for the recipient to let me know (long time fandom friend so I know it will be awesome and fun to write!). Giving myself a deadline of January to finish all so that will be five fics from me in the next 2 months… eheheee?

- Teen Wolf Big Bang is DONE. Just needs a good beta-ing as I’ve already gone through and done a round of revisions and then the waiting begins for posting date.

- Xmas packages are all ready to go. I’m actually organised this year - they’re sitting in a pile on my dining table awaiting flatmate who’s home during the day to take them to the postie. SO FUN going shopping for the packages and packing them. I'm wondering about offering holiday cards this year - it's always fun but I always manage to be LATE with them because I'm crap. I might dither about it before offering in a few days. :)
