I, just... I'm crying my eyes out.

They are *my* band. They are one of the reasons why I'm still mostly sane and alive. I, just, my heart is so broken for him and his loved ones.

I'm so sorry that his pain got that big and that he saw no other solution anymore.
I'm so sorry...
I'm so sorry...
I'm so sorry...

If anyone ever needs an open ear - please don't hesitate.

this is great

someone commented on The First Thirty Minutes, a H50 TS fusion (which becomes a xo). It's the first time they've read a TS based fic, and they've watched an ep and they're hooked \o/. They asked if I've watched the series or researched it to get teh info?

and I'm like Memory Lane!....

Holy fuck, I watched it, thanks to the mates in the States, when it was televised! Via snail mail, they posted ropey VHS tapes in NTSC format that I watched on my PAL (UK format player), which supposedly was capable of showing USA formatted VHS tapes. The colours were constantly weird and the screen sometimes wandered off the side of the telly.

When the series was cancelled, on a cliff-hanger, I (one of many) called the US and expressed my discontent, and the lady I spoke to was very surprised! We -- the fans there was a lot of unhappy fans -- got a final season, which tied up the loose ends.

I actually managed to finish a line on my genprompt-bingo card doing SSR Confidential - I just picked a line and used the prompts in it for inspiration for the various treats I wrote. It worked well. XD I haven't decided if I'm going to go for something more advanced on that card or just post it ...

Anyway, here are all my current cards: my newest h/c bingo one (one square down so far!), genprompt-bingo, trope bingo, and tic-tac-woe (apocalypses).

Cards under the cut )

Note to self: do not sign up for any more bingo cards.

Color-coded versions for prompt picking coming soon ...

Title: Magic's Pawn
Author: Mercedes Lackey
Pages: 349
Summary: Though Vanyel has been born with near-legendary abilities to work both Herald and Mage magic, he wants no part of such things. Nor does he seek a warrior's path, wishing instead to become a Bard. Yet such talent as his if left untrained may prove a menace not only to Vanyel but to others as well. So he is sent to be fostered with his aunt, Savil, one of the famed Herald-Mages of Valdemar.

But, strong-willed and self-centered, Vanyel is a challenge which even Savil can not master alone. For soon he will become the focus of frightening forces, lending his raw magic to a spell that unleashes terrifying wyr-hunters on the land. And by the time Savil seeks the assistance of a Shin'a'in Adept, Vanyel's wild talent may have already grown beyond anyone's ability to contain, placing Vanyel, Savil, and Valdemar itself in desperate peril...

Three things:

1) If you ever want to know how Gwaine might look in the "Loaded March" series? Watch "The Nightshift".
2) I finished "Magic's Pawn" today and Vanyel broke my heart into itty bitty pieces.
3) Is there a book with the story of Moondance and Starwind? Please say yes. Please.
