The Flash: Leonard - Reindeer Mug

2016 Captain Canary Secret Santa

There's a Captain Canary Secret Santa on Tumblr. (No, I'm not running it, but I am participating.)

Check it out at http://ccss2016.tumblr.com

There, you will fine a tentative timeline of the Secret Santa as well as the rules laid out on how to submit prompts as well as the process of getting your SS.

You can participate even if you don't have a Tumblr, as assignments are sent out via email.

Note: When submitting your email, either put brackets around yahoo[.]com or spell out the dot com or Tumblr will eat your submission.

Prompts are due by EOD on December 5th. (Sorry for the late notification.)


On a personal note, this is my first Secret Santa.

Holiday Card Sign-Up

If anyone would like a holiday card from me, please leave your full address in a (screened) comment. Or, you can email it to dragonydreams at yahoo.com with a subject line of Holiday Card.

I am happy to send cards internationally, so don't let that stop you from requesting one. I usually send non-holiday-specific cards as I'm Jewish and a lot of my friends don't celebrate Christmas either, but I do have some that say Christmas, so let me know if you have a preference.

If I missed anyone's sign-ups, please leave me a link to it, because I love receiving cards almost as much as I love sending them. Or if I've given you my address in the past, just know that I'd love one (I haven't moved in 10+ years, so it's still my current address).

After turning Turnball over to the authorities and collecting his bounty, Jonah couldn't wait to get back to his homestead. Back to a life that made sense. One without time travelers.

"Welcome home," a warmly accented voice said from the door of the barn where Jonah was brushing down his horse.

He smiled to himself as he mentally amended that he'd returned to his life with one particular time traveler.

"Like hearing you say that," Jonah said, turning to face Rip.

Author's Note 2: Happy Birthday FreyReh!


"Are you sure that we should be down here?" Leonard asked as he, Sara, and Mick rode down in the elevator to the Arrow's headquarters.

"You're good guys now," Sara said, ignoring Mick's snort of disagreement. "It'll be fine. Besides, I'm not letting you two out of my sight for the foreseeable future. Not after Ray."

Mick, who was surprisingly the more socially tactile of her lovers, gave her shoulder a comforting squeeze.

The entire team was still raw after Ray had sacrificed himself at the Oculus wellspring. Mick had tried to take his place, but Ray had been adamant that this was his life's purpose: to die a hero.

"Hello?" Sara called out as the elevator doors opened. "Hello?"

Mick stood at the door to the library, a six pack of bottled beer in one hand and knocked on the open door with the other.

"You know you don't have to knock," Sara said, turning away from the screen on the wall. "This is a common area, after all."

Mick huffed his acknowledgement, entering and setting the beer on the desk before pulling one out, opening it, and handing it to Sara before taking his own.

"I think I made a mistake," Mick said, settling into one of the chairs and taking a pull from his beer.

"So," Mick drawled before taking a sip from his beer bottle, "if you're from Africa, why don't you have an accent?"

"I beg your pardon?" Amaya retorted, straightening defensively.

"Didn't think you were the begging type," Mick countered. "And you heard me."

Amaya resisted the urge to fidget, as Mick had unknowingly struck a nerve with his careless question.

Home

I got home from Sicily last night. It was a fantastic trip. It's a gorgeous country with such a rich (and violent) history. I hadn't realized that so many Greek myths were tied to Sicily. It was really cool seeing sites that related to stories I was familiar with. (A lot of Homer's Odyssey took place around Sicily.)

I'll post my photos and travelogue later, but I'll tell you one story now: Read more...Collapse )

I'm slowly catching up on my TV shows and LJ. Feel free to leave me a link if you want to make sure I don't miss something.

Part One - Family of Heroes

Leonard paced in the living room, Dean in his arms, as they waited for Sara to come downstairs so they could go trick-or-treating.

Not for the first time, he wondered how this had become his life. Sure, he'd taken Lisa trick-or-treating when she was little so that she could have the chance to dress up and do something normal, but this was different. This was his own child he was taking out, with his soon-to-be wife.

He also couldn't believe that he'd let Sara talk him into dressing Dean up as The Flash. Although, he had to admit that his son looked adorable in the hooded onesie.

An alarm blared as red emergency lights flashed around them. Leonard had his cold gun trained on the scientist that was kneeling before him as Kendra urged him to leave.

"Please," the scientist begged. "My wife, Jessica, is sick. I'm all she has to find a cure."

"Don't care," Leonard sniffed. "What you're working on is dangerous, not a cure."

"It's my life's work," he insisted.

"And this is mine," Leonard countered, blasting him through the heart with a beam of ice.

"What did you do?" Kendra gasped from the door.

"I stopped the evil scientist from creating a lethal virus that Savage could use to wipe out mankind," Leonard said. "Let's get out of here."

House: iPhones are cool

I give up

After going to six stores in two days, I finally just ordered my new iPhone from AT&T's website. I also ended up going for the bigger storage capacity. (Which means I could have gotten a phone in store because several of the stores had the 128GB phone when they didn't have the 32GB phone.) While I was waiting to talk to someone at the AT&T store - store #6 - I was looking at the pricing and through them, it was $21.67/month for 30 months for the 32GB phone and $25/month for 30 months for the 128GB phone. (I noticed on the Apple store's website that it would cost more per month, for all options.) For $3 more per month, I can get 96 more GBs of storage. But they were out of stock of all iPhone 7s at the store, so I just ordered it when I got home.

The case I ordered won't come until next week anyway.

While I was at my second mall today, I stopped into the Newbury Comics there, and they had my Jareth Pop! They also had Hoggle, but not Sarah/Worm or Ludo. Jareth was the one I wanted most. They also were having a 25% off sale on Funkos.

Check out the collection, minus the GoT onesCollapse )

Who's a Birthday Girl?

Another birthday is here. My last one in my 30s. I've never minded getting older. (So many of my friends are older than me that I'm still always going to be playing catch-up.)

I was a good girl and saved up the packages that I've been receiving to open today. I'm not sure if all of them are from my parents since they came from 4 different sites (and are all from my Amazon wish list). When I called my dad to thank him for the presents he said, "You're welcome. What did you get?" My step-mom did all the shopping, but she wasn't home when I called.

It was a geeky present birthdayCollapse )

Also, thank you to angelskuuipo for my Leverage story.

ETA: Just talked to my step-mom and the earrings were not from them. snogged, are these from you?

Arrow: Oliver - Working Hard

Fall Cleaning

Today I finally got sick of the state of my apartment and I both dusted and vacuumed. (I haven't vacuumed in probably six months and you could really tell. It was embarrassing.) I also put away the shoe boxes that have been piling up in my bedroom.

I need to do a purge sometime soon. There are lot of boxes of shoes I haven't worn in years, and probably won't wear again. I still have clothes I want to sell, and should probably try to sell the shoes too.

I've been going through my DVDs again, too, and trying to weed out the ones I haven't seen in years, or never opened after buying. Those I do want to try to sell, but haven't had luck with selling stuff on eBay in the past.

Part of my problem with selling stuff online is that I don't have anywhere to take good photographs in my apartment. There isn't good lighting or surfaces to take photos against.


Tonight is Can't Stop the Serenity in Boston. I'm going with frellingblonde, as usual. I just hope the rain stops before we have to queue up outside an hour and a half before the midnight movie.


Is anyone else watching This is Us? I'm so sucked into this show. If you're not watching it, you should be. LJ is embedding the wrong video, so go watch the trailer here: https://youtu.be/rfUiKg28r_M
Labyrinth: Jareth - Bah

Bad ending to the day

Dammit! I lost one of my rings somewhere between my desk and my car. I'd noticed it was pretty loose earlier today and when I got in my car to go home it wasn't on my finger. Ran back up to my office but no sign of it and no one had turned it in to security (yet). I'll tell HR tomorrow, but it's probably gone for good.

So I made Lemon Blueberry pancakes for dinner. Partly for comfort, partly because it's National Pancake Day, and partly because there are pancakes in the story I beta'd today. (Go angelskuuipo's MCU story.)

Leonard stepped off the Waverider and paused to breathe deeply. His eyes closed as the crisp autumn air filled his lungs. It was a welcome change from the stagnant recycled air on board the ship.

He felt a presence at his side, but he knew from her scent that it was just Sara, so he remained as he was.

It was late October in Vermont in the late 1980s. The Waverider was parked in a field not far from a small town that Rip said would be suitable for some R&R while he and Gideon consulted on where to go next.

Silently, Leonard crooked his elbow towards Sara and she looped her arm through his. He opened his eyes and smirked down at her, taking in how beautiful she looked in the heavy burnt orange sweater with the large cowl over her black jeans and boots. She was also wearing a blue knit hat that matched the color of her eyes; as well as fingerless gloves that adorned her hands.

"Quit making eyes at each other and let's get a move on," Mick grumbled as he stepped up behind them.

"I don't make eyes," Leonard protested as they began to follow the path that would lead them into town.
