The guy at 1:56. That's my life right now.

I am:

Writing a historical fiction fantasy novel (1/4 of the way in), writing a martial arts book (1/8th of the way in), training three martial arts, going away for a bit to study a new style, working full time to pay for said study. The day job has been extraordinarily stressful lately. I've been in charge of huge sums of cash with which it is my job to buy product to turn into larger sums of cash, but the world of coffee buying is a very murky place. I have just bought one of the world's most expensive specialty coffees for the store I work for - just over 21 dollars per pound green, excluding shipping, customs, the 15% weight loss during roasting, labor and packaging costs. This coffee will have to sell for almost 100 dollars a pound. This is terrifying. I'm not at the point where I'm coming home and crying, but I am at the point where I come home and start to drink (except on karate nights, which are 5/7ths of the week, so it's not as awful as it sounds).

I do not know when I will be back with smex and fic. I thought about shutting this blog down and just running twitter, but it seems stupid cause then I have to start a fresh blog when I want to write porn. And I will want to write more porn. Oh I will.

I know I owe some of you guys fic. I will get them to you, I promise. No guarantees on when, though.

Gah. I really want a request filled, so I gotta do the meme, which I cut and pasted from Gamera.

For the first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (Feel free to modify exactly what's being requested according to your skills.)

Please stick to fandoms I have some awareness of. You can pick and (or all!*) of these:

FMA, Sherlock Holmes, D Gray Man, Code Geass, Samurai Champloo, Samurai 7 (no one does fic for this fandom - woes!), Harry Potter, House, Pride and Prejudice (YES I TOTALLY WILL), Lord of the Rings, Metalocalypse, ummm… there may be others. Feel free to request and I'll see what I can do.

*Please don't pick all of them. We'll both suffer.

1. Mugen-edemame: Lavi and Kanda in an AU
2. [personal profile] coloringthevoid: House/Wilson and the aftermath of proposing (ALG is giving a special dispensation, here)

This is open to anyone, guys. If you're usually a lurker, a subscriber, or if you somehow followed enough links to get here, go ahead. Maybe between  all of us we can scrape together ten requests!

I've been struggling with a Book of Doom, MSTurd and an editor who's driving me bonkers and is likewise probably sick to death of me. The book is coming out soon (let's say it's crowning, shall we?). Once it's out, normal service, whatever the hell that is, will resume.

Can anyone tell me if there was any sort of scrying that would have been considered (even moderately) respectable and scientific in the Victorian era? I need something sort of portable magic that's a cop might employ to find a baddie. Not palmistry, seance or a ouija board. Anyone? Anyone?

So, all you e-book people, didja know the UK Steampunk Network is running a free ebook giveaway? (I mean, seriously, who doesn't love free ebooks?)

Here's the info from the contest link on the forum:

"Author Tamara Sheehan is offering to give away three e-book copies of her Steampunk Samurai book, Stormy Bamboo… Leave a comment below and we’ll put your names in a top-hat-with-goggles.  If your name comes out, we’ll ask you for your email address and then the book will be yours!"

You can see the whole contest post, or post-to-win here!

Happy new year everyone! I hope 2010 turns out to be silly, fun, and loaded with good things. But then, who doesn't?

Oh my god, DGM 190, seriously. Kanda as a little ball of angst, his adorable, snot-faced, woobie, erm, friend Alma and Bak's oh so Bakish family. All of it, so cute. But honestly, I want more story. I'm sure Hoshino is setting us up for the next chapter and everything but seeing as I have to wait a month for the next installment, she could kinda hurry it along IMHO.

OK, seriously, Jude Law as Watson. Seriously.

He was a better Watson than the Watson I have in my head, and far, far better looking. I've never been one of those people who's like, "Ooh, he's so dreamy!" In fact, if you has asked me what I thought of Jude Law before I went to see the movie, I'd have scrunched up my forehead and said, "Who?" I just don't care about pretty Hollywood stars. Usually.

But ten minutes into the movie I was getting seriously giddy every time he came on screen. I think almost any guy is going to look positively edible in a well-tailored suit but goddamn. Who knew a mustache could look good, even hot, on anyone? I'm going to have to buy that movie just to oggle a suit wearing mustachioed man. I'm… a little ashamed, actually.
