This is the result of all the hard work I've been putting in over the last few months for my first ever writing challenge over at kbl_reversebang.  I had an awesome artist in chosenfire28 who gave me a great prompt to work with - so great the fic pretty much wrote itself! You can see all the pretty artwork she has done  HERE

Does anyone fancy doing a quick beta job on a glee fic I've written?  It's a Klaine fic (with no naughty bits!) set during season three and beyond and is kind of (or very, depending on how you want to look at it) AU.  Only one small catch; it's about 35,000 words and I need it turned around asap as it's for a challenge and I've already missed my deadline by 5 days!  Any offers would be greatly appreciated!

2 years ago now I made a post of 10 things I wanted to do before I turned 30.  Time has passed and I now only have three and a half years left to complete the list so I figured it was time for an update.....

10 things to do before I'm 30Collapse )

So there we have it, in two years of ticked off one and a half items and am well on the way to ticking off another two.  So I'm left with 6 items and three and a half years...

I was supposed to be going to my cousins wedding today but instead I find myself hanging around A&E at the local hospital. Dad had a fall in the night which we think was the result of a stroke. I just feel so useless right now!!

Well, it's happened.  I started writing fic this weekend for the first time in 2 years!!! 

My hard drive is full of half finished bits of fic from years ago which in all honesty I've just about given up hope of ever finishing.  My muse abandoned me good and proper and for those stories, it's showing no sign of coming back.  I have however been hit with a new plot bunny this week and it's shaping up to be a good one! 

I signed up for the Glee Bang at the beginning of the month on a whim because I was in the mood to write something.  At the time I had no story ideas and no clue where to start and I spent the following 3 weeks trying desperately to come up with something.  I woke up on Saturday morning with one word in my head and from there, I managed to write a 2000 word outline of the fic within an hour - as the finished product only needs to be 15000 words I think, this should be easy!  (and actually, judging by the outline I have, it could turn out to be a bit epic, especially judging by the opening scene I've been writing this evening which is already taking on a mind of it's own.

So, my question for you is, do I have any glee fans on my f-list who fancy doing a bit of beta work and/or letting me bounce ideas off them?  Because I have to tell you, I'm really quite excited about this idea but the last thing I want is to finish a whole fic at 15000 words plus then post the first chapter and be told the idea is rubbish and no one wants to read it.  Let me know if you're interested!

I just found out the title of this weeks episode of glee. Have to say I approve and also, think I may be a little psychic...

If you could go back and change one event in your life (or un-say one thing you wish you'd never said), what would you choose, and why?

I'd go back to August 19th 2002 and stop myself and my sister from having the argument we had that morning which meant we were late getting up (I was 16, she was 12 and we were fighting about who got the bathroom first or something equally as stupid).  That argument meant that instead of getting up at 9 when we woke up, neither of us were downstairs until nearer 11.  When we got there we found my Nan dead in the living room having had a heart attack.  I called an ambulance and tried CPR but it was already too late and when they got there the paramedics said she'd been dead at least an hour.  It couldn't have been more than 90 minutes as she was fine when my mum went to work.  Nan was supposed to be looking after us that day while my parents worked and I've always wondered in the back of my mind, if we'd been up and been there, could we have done something to save her?

What is your idea of the perfect meal, including appetizer, main course, dessert, and drink?

So hard to choose!!!  5 years ago I could walk into a restaurant and stare at the menu for 30 minutes trying to find just one thing I liked.  These days I spend 30 minutes trying to narrow my choices down using a combination of logic and 'ip dip battleship'!  However, I think, if I have to choose I'd go with the following;

Appetizer:  Breaded mushrooms with garlic mayonnaise. 

Main Course:  Scampi Mozzerella and Chips

Dessert:  Vanilla Cheesecake

Drink:  Appleand Raspberry J2O

What was the first video or computer game you ever played? Did you love it or hate it, and why?

The first computer game I remember playing was called Fun School for the Under 5s (I think!) and was on my Dad's Amstrad back in the late 1980s.  I absolutely loved it - thought it was amazing.  So much better than the colouring books and crayons that my friends all had (although they were fun as well when the mood took - I was only 3 to be fair)!  And it even did it's job and taught me a few things too!  It was a mix of a number of different games all in the one program but the main one I used you had to choose the right number on the keyboard to draw a picture.  In some cases different numbers corresponded to different colours (I think) so you could do a different picture each time.  I think my Dad grew to regret teaching me to turn the computer on and open the game myself though - his computer became 'our' computer rather fast after that!

What is your favourite Birthday memory?

My 18th Birthday is the one which springs immediately to mind at this question.  My parents offered to throw me a party however having lost both my grandparents in the previous 12 months I declined because I didn't think it would feel right to have a big party with all my family and friends without them being there.  Mum was still adamant that she was going to make my 18th memorable so she pulled me and my sister out of school for the day and we went away.  We went down to Kent, did lots of shopping then went out for an evening at the theatre.  We had a fab time being just us girls but the evening got better than we could have expected.  To cut a long story short, we got chatting to a couple of the cast members, found out we were staying in the same hotel as them and after the show wound up giving them a lift back to the hotel in our car then sitting in the hotel bar drinking with all the cast of the show until the wee hours of the morning.  It turned out to be a very memorable 18th!
