Welcome, one and all!

This is a public fic journal and, as of current, is unflagged because lurkers are always welcome. Although we don't bite here! Well, not in the unfun way.

Feel free to friend me, although please don't get offended if I don't friend you back. (I have enough trouble keeping up with my f-list as it is!) All fic is posted publicly, and that's what you're all here for, right?

Many stories here are NSFW and contain romantic pairings of various make-ups. Don't like what the heading says? Don't read it! It'll save all of us a lot of heartbreak in the long run.

The Master List of DOOM is in the sidebar. It leads back to my LJ. Have at it and beware of crossovers.

Concrit, thought-provoking comments, and plotbunnies are always welcome. Although I might try to fight off that last one. Play nice with the other children and let's have fun!

♥, Gracie

ZOMG YOU GUYS WTF. I'll be leaving for the UK in two weeks and I am NOT PREPARED. So this is just a quick post between making lists.

One: the Ten Dime Novel line is being relaunched under the brand of Pocket Novels -- and they picked the sexiest, bestest, most amazing writer to interview for their first author interview: ME! Keep up with the blog, our FB page, AND on Twitter at @pocketnovels

Two: Posting on DW/LJ while I'm overseas will be few and far between, because I a) don't have a 4G phone or an iPhone (so global roaming is OUTRAGEOUS) and b) I'm not bringing my laptop with me. I do have a Kindle with global wireless, and I can get to my travel blog. I've got a few trips written up already, so check it out.


... okay, two a: I'll be posting fic in a bit. Happy Second Fiddle-related fic.
gracie_musica: Detective Conan/Magic Kaitou (pull any prank)
... I will be overseas! And since a few of you expressed interest in meeting up with me, I thought I'd post my itinerary here. We can plot meet-ups in the comments or through PMs.

August 16-17: London
* I land on the 16th, so I may not be in the *best* of moods; however, I have nothing booked.
August 18: Bath
* My day in Bath is a bit packed: I have a tour from 1-5:30 (Stonehenge!), then I'm hitting up the Roman baths before I leave the next day.
August 19: Cardiff
* Yes, I will be hitting up the Castle *and* the Plass.
August 20-24: Dublin
* I have tentative plans for while I'm in Dublin, but nothing finite yet. I'd like to do a tour of Galway (where my Mom's family is from) or up through Northern Ireland to the Giant's Causeway, but I haven't booked anything past lodgings yet.
August 25-30: London
* Booked plans: a show at Shaksepeare's Globe (God of Soho) on the 28th, and Much Ado on the 29th. Leave far to early on the 30th.

I have a lot of "free time" -- nothing past tentative ideas of what I'd like to do. Things I'd *like* to do include: London Zoo, Sherlock Holmes museum, The Doctor Who Experience (probably Friday morning), Trinity College, and I'd love to take a day trip up to Stratford-Upon-Avon. The hotel I'm staying at is in the same block as the British Museum, and I have a membership thanks to my parents, which means I'm of *course* doing that.

I had to, unfortunately, cut Edinburgh out. Which makes me extremely sad, since I'm Scottish on my Dad's side. However, now I *have* to go back!

So. Comment/PM if you want to meet up for a meal, a tour, or just to shop! Suggestions on what to do are also always welcome. :)

There's no easy way to say this, so I'm going to come right out:

Yesterday, there was a fire in my house.

Before you all start fretting: Yes, I am okay. We are all okay.

Yes, there was damage to the house. Fairly major damage, but everything of actual importance is safe, and everything else of value is salvageable.

I just wanted those of you that already knew to hear from me that we're all fine (because I know I like to hear from the source whenever possible). Thank you for everyone who's been texting/tweeting/emailing me making sure I was okay.

Thank you, everyone.

*hugs and kisses and lots of love*

I've been sitting on this one since January; my second job and a bit of nervousness kept me from posting this until now. I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Author's Notes: I blame [profile] midassa_in_gold for getting me into BBC's Sherlock. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. If you haven't seen/heard of it, here's why you should watch it: it's only 3 episodes long, and created by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffet. Yeah, the guy who made Who awesome again.

So today's my birthday, and as a hobbit birthday present to my long-suffering f-list (I swear I'm still alive, guys), I bring you fic, in hopes that you won't sacrifice me to the literary gods for not writing lately. Thanks, as always, to my betas: [personal profile] totally4ryo, [profile] k8stamps and [personal profile] gingerlr.

Also, does anyone know any good Sherlock fic comms? My comm-fu is lacking at the moment.

First off, yes, I am still alive. I know, it's terrible; I don't write in forever, and when I do, it's in a fandom none of you are into yet. That's changing; I have a COMPLETE fic out to betas. DW crossover with BBC's Sherlock. Get into it now, folks. It's a good one.

Now, to business.

In August, I'm taking a trip. Overseas. August 15th (well, I'll land on the 16th) to the 3pth, I will be... in the UK. What initially was going to be a fun trip to London to see David Tennant and Catherine Tate snipe at each other in Miuch Ado About Nothing has progressed into Gracie's Madcap Trip About The British Isles. Oh, how I wish I could do it all. I guess that's what retirement is for. Anyway, definite visit spots include London, Cardiff, Dublin, and Edinburgh, with Bath, Stonehenge, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Belfast, and somewhere in the county Mayo on my "time and money willing" list. (The family's from the County Mayo. I can't go that far and not visit.)

So here's the problem: No one I know has done what I'm aiming to do (as far as I know). My mother went to London back in the 70s, so that info's a bit outdated. And she went on a tour of Ireland with a group... plus, her budget could have been probably five times more than what mine is. So I don't have a budget traveller to ask advice from. Therefore I turn to you, oh UK people whose flists I have the privledge of gracing. Explain your odd ways to this weary traveller, please!

Also, yes, I'd love restaurant/sights/shopping recs and suggestions. And I'd love to meet up with some of y'all if possible. :D
