I absolutely love this story. The funny thing is that Robin asked us about the banner, and I still didn’t put it together until I followed my curiosity and came to find this site. Go off to read.. and be prepared to be amazed!
The “Dream Team” True Blood Season 7 Writer Replacement Contest
We all have our favorite writers, and wouldn’t it awesome to have the “Team” of our choosing write the last season of True Blood so we all get the ending WE want? The contest asks you, the readers, to choose…
To all the writers of the Kittyinaz Writing Challenge, Angels through the Fire!
This contest was a huge success, not only in the large amount of entries, but also in the huge amount of people who came to read, and vote. The responses of the public was amazing! Writers, please visit your stories to read the reviews, and readers, thank you again for leaving reviews for these wonderful people who put out their work for you to read. I have the winners below, and the banners and names have been added to all the stories in the contest. Thank you again for your participation. Writers can claim the participation banner above, and are free to post their stories on their sites, and grab the angels to be used.
This month does not have a contest, since I will be gone for the Vegas trip with Bertie Bott to meet Ian and the rest of the Vampire Diaries Cast. I have no idea who I am more excited to meet, my Friend, or one of the men who inspire me to write, not only with his acting, but his day to day actions also.
So the next contest, since so many have asked for it, is a Kill Bill. The only thing I will list in addition to our other rules, is to add the penname you wish to have on the banner when the contest is completed. It will speed up the process to finish them up.
The entries will be due by midnight on September 30, 2014 CST. Please write your entries in, including how you would will Bill to die… especially in this dismal TB season.
Now. enjoy the day, I am off to spend time with my hubs.
To all the writers of the Kittyinaz Writing Challenge, Angels through the Fire! This contest was a huge success, not only in the large amount of entries, but also in the huge amount of people who came to read, and vote.
Yes.. the writing contest is ending tonight. And as I mentioned last time, the IP addresses are redone every night, so if you have some favorites, go ahead and get those votes still in. You can make a difference!!
I am stuck in a dream.. It is an odd one, and I have been teasing it as I write it, so we will be off for awhile. Here is the Banner that Bertie Bott made me:
Yes I know I have been missing. I had a migraine. And its hot here, so I was in a dark cool room, with my puppy and thinking hateful thoughts.
Also… One of the greatest comedians and actors passed away this week. I remember Mork and Mindy. It was one of the first shows I was allowed to watch, and he cracked me up. I remember seeing Good Morning Vietnam, loving his performance in it.
Yes. It is Wednesday, and I have a chapter of IND ready to go. I wrote one more, and in the middle of writing another. Unfortunately, Mr. Kittyinaz (God that sounds weird, but I won’t give you the name the ladies know him by) is going to China for 3 weeks, and we have been running around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to get his passport ready before he leaves in one week. So…
Yes!! We are finally done making banners and looking over the stories, and the polls are set. If you voted before, they didn’t count since not all the stories were listed on it. So we are starting with today, and you have until midnight on the 15th of August for your vote. We are doing one vote per IP address, so make your decisions carefully.
If you leave comments on the reviews (which are m…
Yes.. For me too for once. I am back after vacation, and I will admit that I am not wanting to work.
It could have tons to do with the fact that All day Saturday, and then from the moment I got online, I was making banners for the contest. Sundays are my day off as normal, and the betas were very forceful on me keeping to that. Something about me going to bed at 4:34 from working on the banners… I have no idea what they are saying…
The Writing Contest. Wow. Record amount of entries!!! Many thanks to the two ladies below for their help. They made a banner for me since I had so many to make. I thank them so much for their help!!!!
All the entries are available for reading, BUT the poll is not ready, even though it is posted on the side. We found out a couple entries that were sent much earlier in the month went missing, so we put out a call to let anyone know if we are missing the entries, to please forward them to us. One was such a hard time to get through to any email, but we finally got it and it is bannered and up. As soon as our WordPress Whisperer can get all the information linked and so forth, we will be posting a special post for it. There are so many awesome entries I am thrilled for this one. And thanks for all those that made me push beyond my normal skills for the banners. I tried to make each one unique to the story.
So I bet you are wondering what I did on vacation? I finished two additional chapters of HP, and did the next one of IND. I also made all the banners as well as bio’s for the Set You Free Trilogy, all the ones for ED are in there. Also I did the You’re trilogy as well. I played with videos, and am in the process of making one since all the stories are jumbled up and none are speaking clearly for me to start working. But this video is haunting me.
Yes, the normal posting is going on, and you have a new chapter of AIW ready.
Again, I have to thank all of you in the fandom for pulling together to help out ficlet. I was seriously hurt when it happened to me, and the lady was nice about it. but to have it happen like that.. there is no words. If you haven’t read it, the post below this was the thank you from Heather herself.
So without much further ado, enjoy the chapter!
Yes.. For me too for once. I am back after vacation, and I will admit that I am not wanting to work.
It’s been one week exactly since I first Googled this phrase and found Anthony. This weekend marks the first time that I’ve been able to look at this situation rationally, even amusedly. I guess because the entire Alex Anthony franchise popped like a freakin’ balloon in under a week. But it also marks the first time that I Googled the fallout with any real commitment, since reading about it made…
I also am participating in Kelpie’s Twin Contest this month. Good luck in guessing mine!!!! But I fully encourage you to go off and see about hers.
Starting today, the Twisted Fairy Tales for the Non Canon Awards is open for submissions.
So… There is no reason not to sit down and write something, anything! Come on. The water is great, and you will find only good things happen when you take chances in life. Cause otherwise you will wonder late at night…What If……….
I left the following review on Amazon on the Thief known as Alexandra Anthony’s Fated. I wonder how long until it is gone………..
Stealing another’s work is wrong. There are even laws against it amazingly enough. to be frank, how would you like to build a house from the ground up, spilling your blood into the dirt, your tears into the foundation and so forth. Only when it is done, you are ready…
So yes I am a day late. But hell, I was ‘off’ for the day, and came back to explosion in my inbox with this. It pisses me off. As you guys well know. then kjwrit published that the lady is going to take the stuff down and work with ficlet. then MistressJessica found that she is deleting posts on her amazon page about it, as well as leaving it up on her wordpress. Enough. Lets show…
I know no Sunday post, but hey.. still on vacay! Yes I am getting rest and all that good stuff, and poured out an awesome amount of words for a contest. So off I go to continue cutting up season one of TVD for Damon parts…. Such a hard life.
Hey! I have a few goodies for you fine folks today!
The talented Hisviks has 4 works in progress that I’m reading, the In Memorium Series started as 2 one shots for Seph’s Writing Challenge back in May and has morphed into a multi-chapter series. It’s AU and is very different…
Many huge thanks to Meridian for this wonderful chapter. She had one question that I said I would clarify for you guys. They are heading to the North Cap. Which is approximately Sweden, Norway, and Finland, which are at the same latitude of Alaska. Per TB Sookie came back late October. If not, then she does in my fic. This is the start of the lengthened hours. All this will make sense when you read the chapter.
what’s going on, not much. I am getting many hits on the Contest and in fact have some new Angels that have opened up:
If you are interested, please click here and be taken to the page. If you want an angel, please contact me on Facebook and I will work with you.
I am starting to do some small bios for characters as I make them or introduce them to the story. This is still in the works, but this is going to be the first story who gets it. I also will be making a family tree of the vampires in this story. I can’t make Eric’s actual family tree cause that would be impossible. I nicknamed it the clan, and it really is one.
This story has been completely updated with my new Sookie.
The next chapter of Best has been transcribed from the show. I still need to go back to add the stuff that I am putting in for our Ship, but this is a pivotal chapter. As it is, when I wrote the ending, I took it from the show, and it worked perfectly. So I am very excited for this. The transcribed chapter is up in the Kittyinaz Facebook group, which you are free to join.
Not much to say, enjoy the chapter, and I will be working on my end!
Chapter 11 of I Never…Did!
Many huge thanks to Meridian for this wonderful chapter. She had one question that I said I would clarify for you guys.
Death, the permanent ending of vital processes in a cell or tissue. That is what happened when I gave up the sun for the man I love, my heart beating for the last time as he snapped my neck and buried me in the earth. But what is death, a true death?
As promised, though an hour or two later than anticipated, I give to you wonderfully patient readers chapter 7 of Set My Soul Alight! Very excited for this chapter as it really sets the wheels in motion, so I’d love to hear your thoughts on…
Yes!! It is Wednesday and you guys get a new chapter of I Never…Did. Thanks to Meridian!!
OK. I made one of those author decisions. I don’t and really never have liked Anna Paquin for Sookie. Just how I am. When I started ITE I had no idea how to make banners or anything remotely like that. I had no idea I could really pic my own actors/models since yeah. Not able to do anything. I did…
Yep, my betas Mknue and Meridian came through and got the chapter ready for this week. This is the last one that will be a ‘double’ post for the posting week. But I couldn’t let you guys go without this chapter all the way until next Monday.
Just to remind you, yes, uncensored chapters will be here. This is a E/S/G fic. It will be slow for one of the triad, and fast for the other. This is…
Yes, I remembered. Though shhh.. it’s like 2:15 am in the morning, but I will schedule this to go out when I should be up.
Please remember, this is Sunday, my day away from the computer. I know!! You are shocked! Wendy? Away from the computer? What the heck?!?!?!
Since last Sunday was a success, we are making it permanent. And then we went one step farther, since it really took me all day to edit 4 pages, something that normally takes me a couple of hours if that, talking with Karen, we decided that Saturday is the day to play on the computer. No working on stories. Instead, if I am here, and on the computer, I get to play with my new video making program, or making banners. Or gif’s that move and stuff. Or whatever I want, as long as it is not a story.
I spend every day on this thing, but weekends are hard, everyone comes into my office to pull me into discussions that I have to pay attention to. Or we spend the day out shopping or walking around. Plus to be blunt, if I only work, and not allowed to play, well it aint good. Not at all. Instead, we are being proactive and pushing for me to have days away from the stories.
Other news, we have spruced up the site some. I was bored with all the writing on the side, so talking to Gyllene, she mentioned that I can replace the Betas names with buttons that once clicked will take the user to their site. Then I asked about the gifs with names. We figured out I could do it, and I went to town. Everyone either chose their own Gifs, or I somehow picked ones they love. Bertie Bott, Gyllene and 4PadFoot all made their own.
Then, I had more fun. 4Padfoot got online with me, and we played with our programs. She found an easier way for me to do what I was doing, and can add frames and so on. If you want to see what I did, click on the button below. For those that don’t know, Andrew Lee Potts was my first inspiration.
This is what happens when I get bored of things. I push my envelopes. Plus this past week was a drama filled week and I just needed to get my mind off of it. Yeck.
Good news for those that are following my health. Which seems funny to me, but here we go. Sleeping 4-6 hours is now normal. Without anything but OC drugs to help out. Yeah!!! I also finished the one month on the bicycle officially on Friday. So I am moving on to the Elliptical!!! Also, Hubs went with me to make sure I am using the weights right, and low and behold, he found out real quick why my arms gained muscle so fast. I was only doing 315 reps on just my biceps and triceps. Seems my 24 hours have 4 machines of each exercise of different makers. And yes, I was doing each of those machines… 15 reps x 3 on each machine. I skipped some cause it made me look sideways at them thinking they are the exact thing I was doing… just named slightly different. Hi, my name is Wendy Kittyinaz, and I have Blondes in my family tree, and I married a Polish man. Aforementioned Polish man chuckled, and told me no wonder I was gaining definition on my arms. :Head desk:
I am doing all this because I decided, life is just too short. I want to run again, and to do so I am working towards that goal. I want to feel better, so again, I am working towards it. Only I can change my life, and no one else can do it for me. It takes me an hour-hour and a half to work through it all, and I am proud of myself. I am eating healthier, and I am learning slowly how to do other things. But writing is my main focus, and after I get these lovely stories done, I will be working on my Original Fiction so I can start pushing it out there and see if I can work on getting it published. Well, let me correct that statement. I AM getting it published, just if it will be myself doing it or a publishing company will be the part I am still deciding on.
Also, the writing contest. It is open to anyone who wishes to enter. Sitalia25 asked me for an Angel, and I added Bella per her request. So now Bella is open for anyone to write on now. Just to clarify a question that has been asked many times in the chat, they have to be a character in one of my stories. What you do with them, is up to you. No, they don’t have to BE the character in the story. For instance Mommy4Thomas wrote one for Damon, and she did her own Damon. MissRon80 did her own take on Godric. It is all up to the writers. You just have to use a character from a story. If you have an idea, but don’t see an Angel for it yet, contact me on Facebook, or email the ladies. I will be happy to make one, and you owe me a story. That’s it. For more information, please click on the Bella Banner above. (Remember, you will be consulted on the pic, and the color of the wings and other stuff!)
Now for the fun part!
This weeks person I am going to honor? Kelpie!!!
This woman amazes me constantly. I was first introduced through her interviews on authors I read. I found her, was impressed with the get to know feature on her site. Then there is the Skarsporn Sundays. Such a treat!!! I went through her site, and she also writes!!! I even found a fellow writer who writes kinda like me and has many stories in her head all the time. She and I speak a lot on how stories seem to but themselves into our muses and we are stuck writing down ideas or even chapters.
Then, there was the offer when I mentioned I needed a beta for my Once Upon a Time fic, The Best is yet to Come. She told me she would, and soon had the story being handled. One thing I have learned, don’t ever beta your own work. Though there were two of us working on the fic, there were still errors. It happens. We were far more concerned with the story plot than making sure we followed all the rules. Missron80 tried, but hey.. I rather have the story.
Then there was a difference of opinion, and MissRon80 was no longer working with me. Kelpie stepped forward to work as my co-author on it. Holy cow. We are set to write one chapter a month, and we have stuck with that. But she pushes me all the time for the next chapter. She watches it with me… she instituted Wednesday with Colin pics. Yes. I love Captain Hook! Look, when 4Padfoot was playing around, she made me the pic below. And I found someone who loved him just as much! Not only does she love it, she enables me by sending out (me) pics every Wednesday. I look upon them as my reward for posting .
In addition, we were talking about warning buttons. And she made me some when I fell in love with hers.
Are they not awesome??? LMAO! Now to remember to use them!
She is a busy mother, and she still has the time to write, she encourages me to go to the gym with her own antics (And I have a look alike David Tenant there to drool over…) She brings a quick wit, and has no problems talking over anything. She has helped me with my new role as the interviewer of TB/SVM for the non-canon awards. She makes her own banners, and is willing to jump in and help any of us out on the group.
So.. Thanks Kelpie!! I appreciate you!!!
Hmm here is a surprise. I made one. I had NO idea what I was doing, and somehow I mashed the right buttons and made something. No one was more surprised than me!!! After I did it, 4Padfoot helped me out and showed me some tricks, telling me to play to figure out what I want to do. I have the computer, I have the program, and hopefully I can make some videos for my stories. Hey. I am doing my banners!! Gyllene and 4Padfoot now are not bothered to make the easy stuff anymore. I ask them for the hard stuff now. LMAO!
So here is my first ever video.
It is Damon, Whataya Want From Me. Click and leave me your opinion.
Next up, well I am keeping with the Damon theme, and will put back 4Padfoots tribute to him to inspire me…
I went to look for more and see what I found!
This video is out of the order, but dang it. I LOVE this video!! Absolutely love it!!!
Harry Potter Next Generation. If you go to the video on You Tube, she lists all the actors used. I found it because Andrew Lee Potts. And the scenes with him are from Primeval. LOL!
For those that watched True Blood, here is something to help wash that yucky flavor off your tongue.
Sookie & Eric – I still love him
Then there is this Once Upon a Time that I just clicked to watch as I was finishing up this post, but you are getting it instead.
emma + hook | i’d come for you.
Lastly, I will leave you with another Damon…
Damon Salvatore | Counting Stars
Thanks!!! Enjoy and hopefully I will be seeing you tomorrow!
Sunday! Are you Ready??!?!?!
Yes, I remembered. Though shhh.. it’s like 2:15 am in the morning, but I will schedule this to go out when I should be up.
Good evening (or day whichever applies) I have another review for Meridian done. She is hinting that while she told me Monday, she is working on the next chapter after this for after the True Blood episode tomorrow.
So sit back, and enjoy a story that helps wash your mouth of…
And no, it aint no Camel day. No matter what GEICO tries to tell us. Nope. So…. Guess what? You get two updates today!!!! Anyone complaining? If so, direct all comments to… Never mind. Huge thanks to both Meridian and Mknue for betaing! Pick your poison that you wish to start off with.
Now for the updates of what is going on. Yes. I missed the Sunday post. I was ordered off the computer, not allowed to do anything on Sunday, and let me tell you, it was GLORIOUS! I actually took a nice nap, and got up to date on Chamber of Secrets so I can go back to writing my Harry Potter. Ideas are springing up everywhere. This has taught me the benefit of taking some time out for myself, so I will schedule the Sunday posts for you guys from now on. Which would be better since anything I hear of True Blood disgusts me right now to the point I want to go nowhere close to the computer or TV.
All I Want may.. MAY get another update this week. I am doing my edit thing, and I am in front of the beta. I am thinking that Monday’s will be a great day to update this fic. The tentative schedule being Mondays – All I Want, Wednesdays – I Never…Did and Fridays will be Heavenly (HP/Twilight). The other stories will be up for the Betas to decide on. Heavenly is still in the writing time, but I am thinking to finish it after I finish AIW, as well as some contest entries from friends that have them out there. I am thinking a one shot to be inserted somewhere also. Hey editing is NOT my favorite thing to do. But if I handed you guys the story without the edits, it would not be detailed, and my characters are cardboard cut outs talking to each other. Well, maybe not that bad anymore, but yes. When I write, I am doing a very rough draft.
After AIW is done editing, we have some short fics coming before I drift away to write. Oh yeah What If. The first half will be edited and then I will finish that one. Then work on my Original Fiction, then In The End.. and Edge. I have 8 stories in the works people. Let me write and you will get them sooner. IND will be worked on in spurts, that hopefully you will never see. If I get what I want, then you guys will get some truly epic stories done.
Just a reminder to let others know. This weeks AIW and IND will NOT be updated to FF, FictionPad and AO3 until next week. TWCS gets theirs earlier. Someone is nice to do it for me. Friends don’t let friends read a chapter behind!
Yes, last month I know I opened it up to you guys late. However, you are getting this the second day of the month. Should be enough time to think up something. Here are the pics that are the prompt for this month:
I call them my Angels Through the Fire Series. Here is the deal:
This month the contest is to write a fic (One shot or it can be the beginning of a story, just indicate which) based on one of the pics up above. Here is the catch. If you have another character you would write on, ask me to render it for you. For instance, Kelpie wanted Hook, she got a say on the pic used, and what the wings will look like. However, she owes me a story for the contest. But once a character has been added, you are free to enter under that character. For more information as well as the rules, where to send the files and so on, click here. Remember, I gain nothing by this. I will be making the banners and so on, this is to help you guys.
Also, the Non-Canon awards has me interviewing people. I am still on Meridian, but we got a little more organized over there. Expect to see me at least on Tuesdays for sure. For the record, so far I reviewed 2 stories and some one shots, and in return, Meridian has turned one One-Shot to a story and updated the last story I reviewed, Decisions. Keep clicking on them to get more.
I can’t forget the Amazon, since really guys, clicking though it does everything for me, and may give you additional discounts for using it. It costs you nothing, and if you bookmark the page after you go through my link, it will always give credit. I hate bringing this up, but when I stopped, the sales went way down. So thanks for helping contribute to the site by doing nothing but using the link and buying what you would normally do through Amazon. For more information, click on the Amazon banner on the side menu.
Expect things to change, I am getting bored of the side menu content, and I like the look of pictures more. I already changed some stuff, so expect there to be more.
I can’t think of anything else right now.. Oh yeah. While I was busy writing this, the Facebook group has been clicking away at the stories. I replaced the words on the side menu with a banner for you to click and it will take you to the group. Join, and you can get special advance notice when chapters will be posted, as well teasers. For instance, last night they were treated to a teaser from next week’s chapter for AIW. Just saying…
And no, it aint no Camel day. No matter what GEICO tries to tell us. Nope. So….
