"You'll poke your eye out" and Re the next chapter of "In Search of Bigfoot"  
Hi all!

Happy December!

I will get to all the comments I received on part 1 of "In Search of...Bigfoot" tonight. I am almost ready to post the final part.

There's actually a funny little joke that goes with this...

*giggles even though it's so not funny*

You've heard that old saying, "be careful or you'll poke your eye out?"

Well, it fucking hurts when you poke your eye out!!!! I know, because I did it like an idiot the other night.

Now my left eye has a broken blood vessel swimming through it and people are grossed out whenever they look at me. The hazel part of my eye is all glowy so that along with the red (yes, that's blood red - when my eyes tear up, it looks like my eye is bleeding) makes me look like some kind of non-human weird...thing...alien...I dunno.

And it hurts!!!

Also, since reading doylebaby's A Dangerous Job, I've been in the mood for some Hoot/Todd slash. Any recs out there?

And thank you jackieville for the pretty Christmas card. Yours is the first and it made me all warm and fuzzy.

And the fuzziness made me want to itch my bad eye. LOL!

Which reminds me, if there is anyone who would like a Christmas card from me, send me a line at dementedqueen@gmail.com. If you sent me an addy last year, you need not this year.

In lieu of a card, you may request a drabble or short short ficlet based on any pairing you wish, or based on one of my icons.

That is all citizens...you may now resume your programming.

Aww! You and your poor poked out eyeball...good thing you weren't making a face at the time because it would've stayed that way and you'd have been totally screwed *g*

I know there's a comm, hootxtodd for Hoot/Todd fics, kuz, rawr! *licks*

Oh, and YAY! for more bigfoot!stoner!boys :D

I checked out hootxtodd. Most of the stories are to links to purged and deleted accounts. :(

LOL! Doesn't the whole 'you'll poke your eye out' go with the 'if you keep making faces, someday it'll freeze that way.'

So yeah...go me for not making a face at the time. :P

Yay for more stoner!Orli/Jake!!! P.S. I'm still looking it over (part 2) that is, and though I don't necessarily need a beta, I was wondering if you could check it over quickly just to make sure it flows correctly. I'm afraid my ability to do that right now is compromised.

Poo. I'll have to see if I have anything saved, I can't remember any specific authors that wrote Hoot/Todd, but I know there are some...I'll check with my Banabloom girl, Beth and get back to you :)

Yep. The whole 'your face will stay that way' goes hand in hand with 'you'll poke your eye out' ;P
Gigi: Eric - Prince of Troygiselleslash on December 2nd, 2008 09:01 pm (UTC)
Okay, I've checked with my Banabloom girl - she said there are some at banalando if you want to join and check them out...also lambchop33 did a cute little schmoopy Hoot/Todd series that I remember really enjoying.

You can find links for all her stuff on her info page here

There was also someone called Stewardess (I think) that wrote angsty stuff, but Beth thought that maybe she had taken all her stuff down :(

Anyway. Hope that helps.
Maria: Eric Banaslave_o_spike on December 3rd, 2008 12:36 am (UTC)
doylebaby is sending me some stuff that's on her HD (including stewardess) so Woo Hoo!

I shall check out banalando and I think I remember seeing lambchop's series. I should revisit it in a new unit of time.

Yes, it helped. *pats you and gives you an Oreo*
Maria: Christmas Jackslave_o_spike on December 2nd, 2008 04:46 pm (UTC)
Actually, ignore that last part of my message. I looked over it again and realized it looks fine for crack fic.

I just posted it. :)
Gigi: Jake Laughgiselleslash on December 2nd, 2008 05:13 pm (UTC)
LOL! I was JUST about to answer your other comment telling you to send it over *g*

*scampers off to read next part*

OUCH! Keep those pointy sticks away from your eyes, babe! That sounds incredibly painful. *hugs*
Maria: Christmas Rudolphslave_o_spike on December 2nd, 2008 04:45 pm (UTC)
*hugs you back*

It did hurt. Still does but not as bad as yesterday - of course, I've had a whole night to keep it rested.

Still blood red though. Yuck!

*takes away your scissors, pens, knives, and other pointy object*

*replaces said pointy objects with more wine*

*makes out with you*
Maria: Christmas Ghostslave_o_spike on December 2nd, 2008 04:44 pm (UTC)
*looks at all the wine in house now that all implements of pointyness are gone*

*tries to make out with you*

*misses you and ends up making out with your cat because of stupid blind eye*

*cat won't talk to you now*

Aggh, Maria! The eye sounds just awful. Poor baby. Let us know how it's progressing. FanSee

Re: Eye
It's actually better today believe it or not! LOL!

I don't feel like crawling out of my skin so much. Still bloody red (and that's not me using the British euphemism).

*shudders* Be careful, love!!!!

You're very welcome, honey! I'm so happy you like it *squishes and loves*

Maria: Christmas Rudolphslave_o_spike on December 2nd, 2008 04:41 pm (UTC)
I know!!!

*squishes and glomps on*

I've got a couple of Hoot/Todd's saved to my HD, including those by stewardess_fics. If you have an email addy for me I can send them to you.
Maria: Christmas Jackslave_o_spike on December 3rd, 2008 12:30 am (UTC)
Thank you! I sent you a PM with my private addy. :)
Doylebaby: Hoot/Todddoylebaby on December 3rd, 2008 12:55 am (UTC)
I'm getting them together now. :) They will be on their way soon!
simplyshanni on December 8th, 2008 06:48 pm (UTC)
Awww, sweetie, I'm so sorry you hurt your eye!!! *cuddles Maria and hopes she's feeling better soon*

As for Hoot/Todd fic, if you go to VOLA Slash Archive, you can find a few stories there. Once you're in, go to the 'Other' category at the top and once your there, go to the very top of the page and click on 'Charaters' and a list will come up. Scroll down to Todd Blackburn and click and you'll find a list of Todd stories. Most of them are Hoot/Todd.

Take care, hon! I really do hope your eye is better! I'm off to read the second half of 'In Search of...Bigfoot', so you'll be hearing from me soon!


Maria: Baby!Orli (Underage)slave_o_spike on December 9th, 2008 06:06 am (UTC)
I'll check that out too. doylebaby sent me some wonderful fic too!

I'm just on a Banabloom kick right now. Hmmmm...

I'll check out VOLA.

*hugs you and is glad you're back*

How was So Cal and the Mouse?
simplyshanni on December 9th, 2008 07:14 am (UTC)
*hugs you back*

We had a great time in Dis and So Cal was a heck of a lot warmer than here!!! We had decent weather, occasionally overcast and not too hot (mid to high 60's), not too cold (low 50's to high 40's at night). Despite the fact that hubby and I both picked up minor colds, we really did enjoy every minute of it!

Well, every minute but the flight down, that is! Our plane left at 6:30 in the morning and was supposed to land in Anaheim around 9:15. Well, THAT didn't happen! There was SO MUCH fog that we wound up circling John Wayne for more than an hour, then when we finally tried to land, the pilot overshot the runway and nearly hit a bunch of trees, so up we went again! And I mean SHARPLY up!!! At that point we circled a few more times and then were rerouted to Ontario (Cal., not Can.) for refueling. Well, we circled Ontario for another half hour then finally managed to land without incident. We sat there for OVER AN HOUR, waiting to refuel. We finally took off and then circled John Wayne for ANOTHER 45 minutes before landing! At this point, we were so backed up behind multiple planes that it took ANOTHER hour on top of that to taxi to the gate so we could disembark! Imagine all that, with a screaming baby and a fussy six year old in the two seats ahead of you! Sheesh, it was the plane trip from hell!

Luckily, the trip home was MUCH calmer and I'm glad to be back! I missed all my LJ friends and man, was there a lot of fic written during my absense! It's taken me all day to get caught up!

I'll be posting Chapter 3 of 'No Other Choice' over on Orlibean sometime tomorrow, if you get a chance to take a break! I know what a CRAZY schedule you keep though, so absolutely NO pressure! Just thought I'd let you know it's out there.

*more love-&-hugs coming your way*

Oh wow! Well, what's a vacation without something going wrong? Sounds like fun though. And ah how I remember Decembers in the 60's and 70's (and 80's too).

I am going to catch up with your last 2 chapters - that email sent me for a loop PLUS I've been working LOTS of hours at the shop. Whew! The eye is better though. :)

*lavishes you with hugs*
simplyshanni on December 11th, 2008 06:48 am (UTC)
Hi Maria!

It's good to hear from you! What with everything you've been going through lately, I've been rather worried about you, sweetie! Don't stress about getting caught up with my fic. You definitely have enough on your plate as it is! Stupid troll! *kicks him/her/it viciously* It's no wonder you were thrown for a loop! *cuddles Maria protectively* You just take of yourself, hon, and make sure you don't push too hard! Oh, and it's good to know that your eye is better! *cheers for you*

Mmmmm! *revels in lovely hugs and clings to you tightly*
