[sticky post] The Master of All Fic Masterlists

All works of fiction are listed in order of descending length. My current total word count is 2.037 million words, although about 200,000 of that is by means2bhuman in More Between Us Than a Wall. So my sole contribution is around 1.837 million. For those interested in crunching the numbers, my fiction is about 90% Petlar.

Originally, my masterlist was a single post, but almost as soon as I made it, I outstripped the maximum post length for LJ. To fix that, I created two subsidiary masterlists, one for Petlar and one for everything else, but quickly outstripped that as well. Now I have a Petlar list that includes Peter/Sylar, Peter/Gabriel, and combinations thereof, where those characters are the main figures in the story and are, become, or can be assumed to be romantically involved. The Non-Petlar list includes Peter and Sylar platonic. The third list is for other fandoms and crossovers, so you might find Petlar in the Harry Potter universe in it, or Sylar in Star Trek.

A deliciously obscene amount of Petlar

Proof that I do indeed write things other than Petlar

Fic that is not exclusively Heroes (includes Heroes crossovers to other AUs)

Journal Notes
I adore comments and reviews, constructive criticism, and even random stuff. Feel free to friend me, but if we don't talk much or I don't know you, please don't feel bad if I don't friend back. A lot of my journal is fic, but I also sound off about feminism and share about my personal life here.

Heroic Returns, part 3

So tonight I'm rewatching the third Heroes episode, One Giant Leap. To keep up with my resolution, I should have done it last week, but ... well ... I could claim DVD player problems, but I got those tackled Sunday and then didn't rewatch all week. Whatever.

Book review: Ultimate Bar Book

Those hardy few who read my entries might have noticed one of my New Year's resolutions was to get acquainted with alcohol. It seems like a weird thing to me for a 43 year old person to do who is primarily interested in clean living, staying sober and level-headed, and making sure I don't develop alcoholic patterns like my father. But it's an important part of our culture meaning that a basic literacy in it is useful for anyone to be properly socialized, and I'm done with being intolerant and afraid of something that brings pleasure to many. Plus, I want to be a badass and being a badass (to me) includes a familiarity with alcohol (and exercising proper self-control in imbibing it).

2016 Resolutions and stuff

I've been thinking about my 2016 goals off and on for a month now. It's been difficult, because I'm very happy with where I'm at right now. If I can just have a repeat of 2015, then everything is awesome. But I want some goals to move towards. Here's what I've settled on in the last few days:

I'm about halfway through a hot buttered rum at the moment, so I'll stop there. Looks like a good list.
In the last week, I've seen four movies. My responses range from 'meh' to 'OMG WOW!' There may be mild spoilers for The Divide and Pacific Rim, but they've been out long enough that I figure it's fair.

Book review: Growing Fruit Trees

One of my Christmas presents was Growing Fruit Trees: Novel Concepts and Practices for Successful Care and Management, edited by Jean-Marie Lespinasse and Evelyne Leterme. It was exactly the book I wanted, which I ended up with because I bought it myself, wrapped it myself, and told my daughter this was her present to me. It was 350 pages, which I read in full between Christmas and today. Great stuff! Especially relevant because I now have 80 fruit and nut trees on my property and about half of them are coming into their productive years. The other half are new and I want to make sure I do them right.

The book is divided into fifteen chapters, one about each type of fruit (a chapter on almonds, one on apples, etc.) I am growing all of these except the chestnut, olive, quince, and walnut. Eleven out of fifteen are relevant. I took notes.

  • I'm not growing these either. Mostly because I don't like walnuts.


An even shorter week!

Yesterday we had rain, high winds, ice, and snow, so I got to stay home and supposedly 'work from home'. I did actually do some work. I analyzed the Canadian spend as much as I could given the limited files available to me. It was lovely to sit in my comfy chair and work while the bread was rising and the laundry tumbling. I might have to do that more often!

But today I'm back at work. Tomorrow I'll work a half day. That's all the work I have to do for the week. Then when we come back in January, it's nose to the grindstone!
