I'm alive!!!! (and writing again....)  
Hello my lovelies!

For the last few months I've been pretty quiet here on LJ but that's about to change.

I survived my daughter's wedding last month and she and my new son-in-law are settling happily into married life.  The wedding was gorgeous,  the groom was handsome and the bride was radiant.  The wonderful teachwriteslash came out for a couple of weeks and was the (self-titled) 'wedding lackey', making the day easier for me and even getting in between my hubby and my ex to break up a potential altercation during the rehearsal!  (everything calmed down, no punches were thrown, no one went to jail and minimal amounts of tears were shed....mainly by my ex, the jackass.)

Here is one of my favorite pictures of my lovely daughter in her dress

In the fandom world, I already miss my Merlin boys and can't wait to see what they all do next; Matt Smith's imminent departure as the Doctor has me very sad (My top picks for his replacement would be Gareth David-Lloyd, Peter Wingfield or Rupert Young (Sir Leon from Merlin); I've seen potential dates of September for Sherlock to be back with it's third series, which I can't wait to see; and, I finally caved and started watching Supernatural (I now own all of the season 1-7 DVD's, have a massive crush on Sam Winchester (yes, I said Sam!) and have hooked my daughter, son-in-law, husband and teachwriteslash on the show!)

On the fanfic front, it seems my muses have FINALLY come back from wherever they disappeared to and I've actually been writing again!!  I have three, possibly four, stories in the works - one for reel_torchwood, one for the longliveianto Big Bang and a Torchwood choose-your-own-adventure type story that I'm writing in conjunction with faithharkness milady_dragon moonfirefic thrace_adams and teachwriteslash.  The possible fourth story is a Merlin fic based on a movie but I missed the deadline for signing up for the current round of reel_merlin so, unless I get permission to sign-up late, I may save that one for a bit.

I have still been reading a lot of fanfic, branching out from just Torchwood and Merlin and dipping my toes into Sherlock (John/Sherlock, of course), the Avengers (preferably Stark/Banner or Coulson/anyone) and Supernatural (Jensen/Jared RPF only - and not based on them, as the actors of SPN, preferably them in completely fictional settings/situations LOL).  So, if you have any recs along these lines, or suggestions for good comms for these fandoms/pairings, please let me know!

Also, I was listening to an oldies (sort of) radio station on my way home from work this afternoon and would now dearly love to see an Arthur/Merlin video to the song You Can Do Magic by America....if anyone knows of such a video (or feels inspired to make one lol) please give me a link!

Awesome that you had so much help and teachwriteslash acted as a bouncer :) and kept things peaceful.

That is such a pretty dress. Your daughter looks so radiant.

Will definitely miss Matt as the Doctor. I feel like he was my Doctor and the era with Amy/Rory is hard to top for me. I haven't heard Gareth's name bandied about as a replacement (It probably wouldn't happen because of the Ianto/TW connection) but that would be brilliant!

Glad you're enjoying Supernatural. Sam is my favorite, too. I haven't roped my fiance into watching it yet. Every time I try he gets distracted.

Glad your muses are back!

LOL I'm glad to finally 'meet' another person that likes Sam better than Dean. So far everyone around me are Dean fans - not that I don't like him, too, I just prefer Sam.

Yeah, I know GDL won't end up being the Doctor. I just miss seeing him on my tv. I had high hopes that they were going to do a spin-off of Warehouse 13 w/HG Wells and that GDL would be in that. I loved the episode that he was in. Oh well, something will come along, I'm sure.

ETA - omg, your icon!! *drools*

I definitely really like Dean, I just like Sam a little more.

I miss GDL, too. His episode is the only ep of "Warehouse 13" that I've seen. I hope he finds something really great soon.

Lovely icon isn't it? ;) JA has a really sick body.

OH wow, she looked GORGEOUS. I"m really happy the wedding went smoothly and that Teach was there to calm things down when they heated up. That's a good thing.

I have also been watching SPN - I'm starting Season 3 right now. I love it, just need the time to watch it. ARGH i need writing time too LOL.

I'm mostly reading Teen Wolf fic nowdays.

Anyway, so glad you're back. *HUGS*

She was beautiful! And her groom was quite handsome as well. They are both huge Doctor Who fans and, when they found out that Converse made a high-top in patent leather, that's what the groom wore. My daughter wore all white Converse that had a little bit of a heel to them. Crazy kids. Still, they were really comfortable LOL
Teach was a godsend. I didn't see what happened between my hubby and my ex, but I heard the wall clock as it crashed to the floor and saw my daughter running out of the building in tears. The groom ran after her and Teach handed me a baby before she told me what had actually happened - I think to ensure that I wouldn't try to actually choke the life out of the ex LOL (he'd been having a fit about the fact that his wife wasn't going to be escorted down the aisle as a mother of the bride and telling Jami that it was disrespectful to him, etc, etc, until Jami was in tears. My hubby basically told him that if he made her cry again, he was going to punch his lights out.) Everything calmed down, thankfully, especially since my daughter had them both escort her down the aisle to 'give her away'.

OH wow, it sounds gorgeous. And LOLLL at the Converse, that is AWESOME :D

ARGHHH what a mess with your hubs and your Ex - so glad Teach was there to intervene. Your poor daughter. I'm glad everything worked out in the end.
