Hi my friends.  Yep, you out there in LJ land and beyond.  I want to apologize, because for the last two months (or maybe even longer) I have been an absolute crap friend.  I haven't returned many phonecalls.  I haven't returned many comments.  I didn't get christmas cards out.  I have been absolutely horrible about commenting to anyone on anything, even when I've enjoyed something immensely.  I'm going to try, from this point forward, to actually be back here in the rest of life, and not just lost in school. I'm also going to wipe my inbox as clean as possible, so if I've left off in the middle of a conversation, just let me know, and I promise to pick it back up.

Because in the end, honestly, I adore every one of you, and I have missed you all, and life is not really life without friends in it.

Psh. Darling, you are in GRADUATE school studying freaking JAPANESE and TEACHING. You are working your ass off, as well as KICKING all kinds of ass, and what kind of friends would we be if we didn't understand and support that? You're all kinds of awesome, we know it, and we're lucky we know you. Now STFU before I write Cordy giving you a verbal smackdown. *hugs*

And I'm gonna bust my ass to have something Buffy/Giles for you by Christmas time. I think I promised that to you like 23482348 weeks ago. I've been distracted by writing Xander porn, though. I'm sure you understand. :) Just remember, I've never written B/G before, so iunno how good it will be *crosses fingers*

*squishes you into itty tiny pieces*

YOU, my darling, are an absolute wonder. And I will shut my mouth now and press on full steam ahead. I am lucky to have YOU, period, full stop.

And seriously, about buffy/giles? what if i changed that to xangel? because i know what a bitch it can be to write a pairing you haven't before, especially bout characters that are not in your usual cadre of great loves and i do love me some xangel and i know you've written that before. would i be screwing up stuff you'd already thought about? is it bad to change midstream? hell, honestly, i know how holidays can get and now I'm going to tell you - don't even worry about it if you don't get anything written. I love you in all your fantasticness period.

Aww! *hugs* You're so sweet! I want to at least attempt the Buffy/Giles, just for the challenge. But because you're you and you're wonderful, I'm gonna give you some xangel, too. Hmm. Possibly in the same ficlet. *ponders*

Sweetie, you have good reasons to be submerged in school. *hugs you tightly* We all understand that, and we'll all be here when you get a breather. :)

thank you lady, for understanding. it's weird, i feel like i'm resurfacing from this strange tunnel - there's light out there somewhere, i know there is!

Real life happens! *hugs*

Also, thank you so much, for the awesome cut-out virtual cookie for my profile page! <3 <3 <3 I keep forgetting to remark on it in a post, probably because I'm not posting as frequently these days, but it makes me smile every time I see it. :)

it does indeed! thank you for understanding lady!

And you're totally welcome! I didn't manage to get it together to do cookies or cards this year, and but I wanted to make my friends grin a little bit :D

speaking of that, i don't know if you remember, but months and months ago I asked you to fill out a holiday graphics poll. Well guess what? I'm actually in the process of finishing them and I have yours for you! And if you want/need any changes in anything(colors, text, etc), please don't hesitate to ask!.

First, a LJ banner:

and icon:

and banner 1 for temporary:

and banner 2 for temporary (I couldn't decide between them - maybe you'll like one more than the other):

Happy Happy HOlidays lady!!!

Hi hi! I had this comment in my inbox still, and I thought, oh, how come, because I already replied?


Okay, I am SO LATE in replying, but thank you, thank you, thank you! These are simply gorgeous -- you do such beautiful work! The LJ banner and matching icon are really lovely, dark and delicious. And the banners for Temporary make me squee and bounce around, because they're so very perfect for the mood of that story.

Thank you so much. Again, apologies for this late acknowledgment! The story banners especially are very motivating to work on Spike/Xander fics, and of course Temporary in particular. Yay!

mew! I am glad you are back! Sorry for pestering you with emails. Looks like TX isn't going to work out - I've booked myself a hotel in NYC instead for that week, so no worries. But next time I come to the US, or you come to the UK, you have Absolutely No Excuse, missy! ;)
