So yeah, I've pimped out again, but this time it's good for my existing stories! I'm offering 2500-5000 words of a new story and/or an existing story of mine that is WIP. For a Buy it Now of $30 USD, you get the and option, highest main bidder gets either or. I will open it up to the two highest bidders or two Buy It Nows. Starting bid is $5 USD if you're interested.

(P.S. no, [livejournal.com profile] elfsausage I haven't forgotten the Spones for [livejournal.com profile] help_japan . If you haven't checked, I sent you an email with a question about it, and once I have that answered, I should have it done before my hubby gets home.)

So I kind of sort of really want to write a story for each of my fandoms based entirely on fanmixes from my iTunes. I'm going to make a playlist for each story, and post the songlist at the end of each fic. Would anyone be interested in such an endeavor? [Poll #1736566]

Got this from [livejournal.com profile] siluria 

Here are the rules:
- Reply to this post with ICON ME! and I will pick five of your icons.
- Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
- Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
- This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee

I got this from [livejournal.com profile] universaldogma a few days ago from an icon dump on [livejournal.com profile] merlinxarthur when I realized I'm woefully deficient on Merlin icons. There's things I've contemplated doing for this fandom that would have had me blushing like a virgin in a whorehouse at the beginning, but now it's kind of like 'eh, I have no time to research this/the kids might get ahold of the computer.' So that's the story of the shame icon.

I needed an icon for general rants/acerbic comments, and [livejournal.com profile] wicked_jade  obliged me without knowing it by creating this amazingness. I only use it for half of my posts since I love the saying. It honestly took me a few times to realize that he's giving the finger. but John Malkovich is a beast, so it doesn't matter lol.

this one came from [livejournal.com profile] avictoriangirl when I went trolling on her journal for more Jones icons... I use it interchangeably with my other jones icons, depending on my mood... that's about all I've got...

Ah, the immortal 'bunk' icon. There are many incarnations, some including real beds, and this one was made by my lj wife [livejournal.com profile] imagined_haven who doesn't know Firefly at all (not from lack of trying on both of our parts) and when I mentioned the origins of the phrase she went out and found this picture and made it for me. She has repeatedly offered to make me a new one, now that she knows more about iconning, but I like this one just the way it is. Simple, and kind of weird. Just like Jayne. (pretty cunning ain't it?)

And my size queen. This one was made by me, back at the beginning of my iconning, and I actually made it based off a prompt on [livejournal.com profile] buckleup_meme  that Jim was a size queen. The story fill(s) was(were) amazing, since all I can remember from reading it(them) is about a friend in Des Moines who helped Jim out. The prompt was AOS but there just aren't any pictures of CFine holding a giant phallic object, while the base for this was absolutely everywhere.

And that's my icons! go ahead and comment with 'Icon Me' and I'll find 5 of yours!

Title: Merry Christmas
Author: [livejournal.com profile] bandearg_rois 
Rating: G
Character/Pairing: Sheppard Book, brief mentions of Simon/Kaylee and Mal/Inara (neither graphic nor anything but idle conjecture)
Summary: Set during Ariel, when Sheppard Book is dropped off at Bathsgate Abbey.
Prompt: Sheppard Book reflecting on the quiet times on Serenity.
Author's Note: HAPPY HOLIDAY [livejournal.com profile] amine_eyes!!!! Hope this is what you were looking for! Also, some of this is taken from Ron Glass's description of his character on the extras for the season DVD. Not word for word, mind... Set during Ariel because of the mention of Holiday during the episode.

Derrial Book hadn't always been a Sheppard, hadn't ever really hidden that from the others, hadn't been able to hide it when he'd gotten shot. He hadn't been lying, that first night, when he'd told Inara he'd gotten on the wrong ship. He also hadn't been joking when he'd talked to Mal about the 'heathens aplenty' on the Firefly that had become his home. He was a trained observer, always watching, always calculating, something not even Seminary could beat out of him, take away like it had so many of his instinctual reactions to trauma, to worry.

Serenity was, indeed, a good home, a broken family, but mostly wonderful people. Never a dull moment with the crew, but there were the quiet times, when most everyone was asleep (River didn't count, since she didn't exactly keep a normal schedule anyway), when he had nothing but time and silence, to think, to pray. He found himself staying up every night, long after everyone but possibly Wash had bedded down for the night, thinking on these people and his situation among them. There wasn't much call for his primary profession, seeing as how Mal had stated quite clearly that while he was perfectly welcome on the ship, He wasn't.

Not much he could say to that, only try his best to help the members of the crew as needed him, like Inara and Mal, whether they knew it or not, manipulating to try and get them together, never succeeding. Not that he'd ever admit to that, since Sheppards weren't exactly the matchmakers of the universe. it was the same with Simon and Kaylee, though he didn't have to do much on that front, seeing as how Kaylee was more than able to get Simon to pay attention herself.

But that's not the point, he thought as he looked out over the gardens of the Abbey. The point of it all was that he had found a home, a family, albeit highly disfunctional, and it was something he hadn't had in a long time, not since he was River's age, long before becoming a Sheppard had ever entered his tired, jaded mind. The other Sheppards were his brothers, yes, but none of them so close as those eight people, even Jayne, in his own way. And wasn't that important? The journey, not the destination? As he looked up to the sky, his thoughts weren't on God, or on the other Sheppards milling about, doing work or meditating or just thinking, like himself. It was on his family, his home, up in the stars, never settling, always moving, but always together, even if they weren't all in the same place. Just as it always would be, until the end of it all.


(short but sweet, hope you liked it! This is actually my first non-crack Firefly story, and i think this was good for me as well! Thanks for the prompt!)
