Teen Movies: 8tracks Collection

I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me.

rthstewart replied to your post: I have such anxiety about posting any …

I understand that anxiety so well. I love what you write and always take enormous pleasure in it.

Thank you! You always say such nice things about my stuff.

I think you capture character really well and have intriguing and well-though out head canon that always makes me go, “wow, I wish I’d thought of that.”

Athena’s Daughters Volume II -

I learned this week that a short story I submitted to Silence in the Library Publishing was accepted for publication in the planned anthology, Athena’s Daughters, Volume II.   This anthology features science fiction, fantasy, and genre written by women, about women.   Athena’s Daughters Volume 1 is already in publication and features works by many talented writers, including Janine Spendlove Cleolinda Jones, Tricia Barr, Jean Rabe, Jennifer Brozek, and Gail Martin.  I’m really honored to have been selected to be part of Volume II and in the company of such amazing writers.

I hope you’ll consider supporting Silence in the Library and their many wonderful works through Kickstarter. Their Heroes — A Diverse Superhero Anthology, is still live on Kickstarter and features some great stories — I heard Janine Spendlove read hers at Origins and loved it.  You’ll also get works by Tim Zahn, Mike Stackpole, and the late, great, Aaron Allston. 

I’ll post more about Athena’s Daughters Vol. 2 as it becomes available.

I need to get going on the NFE to be sure!  and I suspect it will be long — over 10,000 words.  I need to get writing.  Thank you for responding!

what’s a fic you’d like to see me write?

Meh.  I have lots of ideas for what I want others to write.  Me, well, it’s so much a function of the people I meet along the way and when they move on, or I destroy the things that we built and burn the bridges, or just things and life, I’m not sure there’s anything left to say.

Okay so, where I live (Canada, Newfoundland) we have the smallest ponies.

And the biggest dogs

Here’s a size comparison for the Newfoundland dog

and together

That is a full grown dog and pony together LOOK AT THAT!
Now if you don’t think that’s the greatest shit ever I don’t know what is!

I’ve seen this before and love it so much. A Newfie walking a pony and they are both so happy about it.

My apologies. I’ll see myself out.

I’ve waited for this my whole life.  Or, at least since I got a Corgi.

1/? Films - The Parent Trap (1998)

"And I suppose you just expect me to go weak at the knees, and fall into your arms and cry hysterically…. And… and, you and I just picking up where we left off and growing old together… … C’mon Nick what do you expect? To live happily ever after?" 

Yes. To all of the above. Except you don’t have to cry hysterically.”

Oh, yes I do.”
