new shoes shiny shoes  


they might not be Matthew Grey Gubler, but [ my new boots ] are justifiably as sexy as he is
and thus get to grace my livejournal instead of his ridiculously adorable face.
I hope you're all perving over them as much as I am! ;D

I bought these beauties due to the fact that the entirity of Scotland will be re-enacting "The Day After Tomorrow" come Thursday and whilst wearing my Mother's two-sizes-too-big-wellies was okay for trekking through the snow for a couple of days, they're not really an option seeing as this snowpocalypse is meant to last well into January. NOT IMPRESSED, SCOTLAND. That said, I can't be too upset. I did get these gorgeous boots out of the whole deal! ::clings to them all innappropriate like::

In other news...

§ My littlest sister, whilst following in my geeky footsteps for years, has recently manned up (so to speak) and posted her first piece of fanfic online last week. If any of you would be so kind as to check it out and leave her a wee comment I'd be forever grateful. She's been suffering an attack of butterflies everytime she gets a review aleart and it's kind of hilarious watching her freak out ;D 

 [Better than all men | Arthur/Merlin | PG/13 | Spoilers for 3.12]

It's actually all kinds of adorable, if I'm honest! heh. And I'm taking great pride in the fact that she's following my bad influence lead with the whole fanom/fanfiction business. Apparently she's now working on a more highly rated piece. I will not be reading this. I have a rule about her not reading any of my high-rated fic (and if she does I must never hear about it!) and I think I'll be applying that self-same rule when it comes to her stuff. For both our sanity! XD

§ Continuing on the theme of fanfic. It occured to me recently just how much I miss Torchwood and writing Torchwood fic. I had a very emo moment over the knowledge that I'd probably never write for the show again... and then I started getting some out-of-the-blue reviews on some of my fics and it got me thinking and... I've started writing a Torchwood fic. ::headdesk:: Well it's actually a crossover fic. Or, rather, a sequel to my Torchoowd/Prison Break crossover [Ink in my Coffee | Ianto/Michael, Ianto/Jack | R/18 | Tattoo AU] wherein Michael returns to the Torchwood Tattoo & Piercing Parlour three years later to get his tattoo removed. Shenanigans ensure! ...and in writing this sequel I started re-reading the original and am now going through that and re-writing/beta-ing some parts as I'm very well aware most of them were written in the rush of an approaching deadline! But yeah, it's kind of fun. And it's giving me a wee bit of a Torchwood-fix to help my emo! ::happy face::

How're the rest of you guys doing? Anything happening at your ends of the country? With your fandoms? Infact, anyone got any new fandom recs? I'm open to options right now! :D

As I've said rather a lot in the last hour, the new boots = epic awesome! XD LOL.

Oh I'll read her fic, hehe, glad to see you've influenced someone into the ways of fic writing! :P LOL.

I've not written TW fic for....on near on a year now, last piece I wrote was a post-CoE one! I miss the fandom, or I miss the way the fandom use to be, now it just seems like people are always complaining bout stuff! :(

New Fandom...erm....Walking Dead you seen that yet? Very good if quite predictiable for a zombie series but yeah Walking Dead.

Also my life = work at the moment! :P

Hee. I can't wait to wear them out tomorrow :D

cheers hun! Yeah, I know. Mistress of Temptation FTW! hehe

I know what you mean. The fandom sucks. I really miss the old days back when it was new and shiny and we'd pretty much just formed The Tribe!

I've got all the episodes but have yet to watch it yet. I've heard mixed reviews, but seeing as I've got them and will have some free time over xmas/newyear, I'll give it a shot :D there's not that many eps, right?

UGH. I know what you mean. It's rubbish, isn't it? XD

This month is, without doubt, boot jealousy month! Because those are a fantastic pair of boots which definitely deserve to be flaunted around ♥

I'm sure I'm due a snowpocalypse too!
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; profilecs_whitewolf on December 14th, 2010 11:02 pm (UTC)
XD thanks! I'm so inlove with them. It's probably not healthy after only owning them for around 6hours, haha.

But yeah. It was really a case of "need boots asap" before the snow arrives. I just got lucky with how gorgeous they were XD

FAIL. Why is there snow?! Stupid county! lol.
ks_darkstormks_darkstorm on December 14th, 2010 09:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for the shout out sis, I'm not embarrased at all ;)
And I agree with your fic sentiment wholeheartedly!
I doubt we would be ever be able to look each other in the eyes again.

Also, your boots=iwantyespls!

Much love ;P
Campaspe: Merlin \\ Merlin; flash of goldcs_whitewolf on December 14th, 2010 11:05 pm (UTC)
You're welcome. Don't say I never did anything for you!

And yes. I'm glad we're in agreement on that front. I shudder to think what you'd come up with ;P

MY BOOTS! MINE! BOOHISS. touch them and die!

UGH. GTFO MY JOURNAL, SMALLFRY! :P
_stolendreams_ on December 14th, 2010 10:06 pm (UTC)
Oooh, creating a family tradition. Nice! I'll definitely give her fic a read if I ever convince myself to finish packing.

You should write more for Torchwood. We need more good writers. Just... don't bring Ianto back from the dead, okay?

IDEK what's happening outside of my room lately, let alone my end of the country. Stupid uni work. Fandoms? I'm massively behind on all of them. I am going home tomorrow so I promise to start on Leverage or Criminal Minds by the weekend :p I can't wait for an internet connection that doesn't give up halfway through a BBC Iplayer show <3
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; boy geniuscs_whitewolf on December 14th, 2010 11:10 pm (UTC)
XD Well you know me, Mistress of Temptation and all that jazz. ;D muhahahaha! You'll love the shows, promise!

I don't know if I can stomach the fandom side of things, but I'm having fun writing the team atm! We shall see! This might just be a phase I'm over with in another month though! LOL ...are you still hanging around the fandom?

Safe trip home, hun! <33

Oh prettyboots, make me think of Hit Girl was Kick Ass:)


Weather sucks so much, when it all started to melt Im pretty sure building in the hospital had burst pipes. It's a good thing I now carry 3 spare pair of socks around with me.

The only thing I would rec would be Misfits if you don't already watch it. Did take me a couple of episodes to get into but so glad I did:)



I sneeked a look at a Criminal Minds spoiler (Moment of weakness) for 2.12 I just bet it's the ep we wont get to January and it sounds amazing.
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Gube; home alonecs_whitewolf on December 14th, 2010 11:22 pm (UTC)
Oooo I liked Hit Girl as well! XD

Ugh, I know! I'm totally stealing your idea. Spare socks are an awesome idea! But mostly because my feet were so damn cold last week I wasn't even sure they were still attatched to me! lol.

Misfits, I've heard of it, and that it's really good, but haven't seen it yet! Will certainly add it to my list :D you're the second person who's recced it to me so better give it a shot.

OMG I SAW IT TOO! Alas, you're right, we won't get it till January. EEEEE I don't know whether to be excited or scared for it!

You're the third person I know (including myself) who has gotten new boots this week. Shit, it's contagious! They're very lovely, however. Very "you", if that makes sense? When I saw them, I was all, "yeah, those are totally cs_whitewolf's style."

Sorry about the snow, though. I think it's just going to miss us. Come and stay with me until the summer! ;)
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; in my pantscs_whitewolf on December 14th, 2010 11:25 pm (UTC)
Ooooo you have new boots too? Have I seen your new boots? Are they just as awesome as mine? Heh. I love how you think they're very "me"! It makes total sense <33 and makes me happy to hear it XD

Yeah. Not enjoying this country right now. I really need that holiday home! hehe.

Stay? With you? Until summer? OMG I'M ON THE BUS ALREADY!!!!

XD
Michellehalftime1030 on December 14th, 2010 11:07 pm (UTC)
1. Those are some BAMF boots, my friend! Sweet :)
2. How is it that Scotland is having snowpocalpse and here in Massachusetts we haven't even seen one flake yet? *iz puzzled*
3. It took me until just a month ago before I could even contemplate reading TW fic again. *feeds plot bunnies carrots*
4. I seriously need to move to the UK - you've got snow and all my fav TV shows: Sherlock, Primeval, Doctor Who - if I could watch Merlin I'd probably love that too! :)
5. Other than that, just having to spend too much $$ on repairing my car while trying to finish up my Christmas shopping.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Jack&Ianto; coffeecs_whitewolf on December 14th, 2010 11:29 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I really am so ridiculously inlove with them XD

Because Scotland SUCKS ASS! OMG. If there was a way for me to send you over all this snow, I totally would because, seriously? I'm not happy! If I could just stay home from now until spring it'd be fine, but apparently not going to work for that length of time is frowned upon :/ who knew? heh.

Totally know what you mean. The whole fandom went way too batshit over COE for my liking and I think most of the good fandom people abandoned ship around then too. I'm not sure I'll ever really get back into it, but I'm having fun dabbling :D
Kerryblazekerryblaze on December 15th, 2010 04:02 am (UTC)

Very nice boots! If boots that awesome came in my size I would be running out to buy a pair!

I loved that crossover fic. So highly approve of the next installment. What are you doing reading this? Go write. *shoo*

Your sister looks like she's doing well (that's more comments than I ever get, on her first fic too!). And yes, you should never read each other's pr0n. That would be really kinda weird!

New fandom recs? Do they have to be new shows? I am taking advantage of the Balthazar love on my flist to push Odyssey 5 at everyone again. :D

Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Hotch&Reid; fanficcs_whitewolf on December 15th, 2010 12:09 pm (UTC)
...what size are you??? I think everyone should have a pair, they're so damn comft and pretty and ::hugs them tight::

EEE! Thank you! XD ...and consider this reply a quick lunchbreak before further writing commences! ...I'm intended it to be a one off sequel, but... I'm having alot of fun with the verse and, well, lazer removal does take a couple weeks at the very least so... who knows! XD

Yeah she is! I think it helps that she's been writing a good few years just in journals and stuff. I dread to even remember what my first posted fic looked like XD ....ugh, defo don't need to be told twice! As far as I'm concerned she's still a little girl and boykissing is as far as it goes! haha

XD I think you recced me this a while ago! And why not- do you have links at all? I started watching a series which'd already ended called "Life" which is very awesome and exciting, so the old shows are still welcome!

Those boots are gorgeous. I hope they almost make up for the snowpocalypse. And think... after the snow (finally) melts, you'll still have gorgeous, gorgeous boots.

I think its all kinds of adorable that your sister is carrying on the fandom tradition.

And Torchwood fic writing ftw!

*hugs*
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid; chess handscs_whitewolf on December 16th, 2010 10:45 pm (UTC)
This is very true! I've named them my "fuck yeah!" boots because everytime I put them on I'm all "fuck yeah!" XD

heh. It's kind of cool, but also kind of scary, you know? So long as she remembers to stay away from my fic though, we're all good!

I know, omg! I never thought I'd be playing in this sandpit again, but it's kind of nice. Like revisiting an old friend or something, heh.

::snugs::
absinthefairy88: bunnyabsinthefairy88 on December 15th, 2010 04:33 pm (UTC)
the entirity of Scotland will be re-enacting "The Day After Tomorrow" This is why I am not leaving my house unless I totally have to.

Fic = <3

I know the feeling. All of my recent stuff has been either SPN or Criminal Minds. But sequel! YAY! I've got a SPN/DC Universe x-over in the works so I share the headdesk moments

I want a pair of those boots! Could have them delivered by MGG please?
Campaspe: Criminal Minds \\ Reid&Hotch; understandcs_whitewolf on December 16th, 2010 10:49 pm (UTC)
At least you have that luxuary! D: I have to go out every single working day in it! WOE!!!

XD ::hearts you::

I'm so out of the look with everyone. I don't think I even read any of your absi-wri-mo stuff! Will have to try and find the time to do so! What's your x-over?? I'm not really familiar with the the DC Universe.

:D oh honey, if these boots manage to pull MGG I'll be buying Schuh out of their entire stock!

*licks boots* YOU SEXY WHORE!!!!!

I feel the same about writing TW fic sadly :( Good for you managing to get back into it though. AND COME HUB6 WOMAN!!!!!!!!

I'm ok. I go back to Donny on Friday which I cannot wait for. Uni sucks. I have no friends. Reading is magically immune to snow.

WATCH MISFITS RIGHT NOW

Well, who knows if I'll ever get around to posting anything, but it's fun playing around with the boys again- I forgot how cute they can be together ;D

MEEEEEEEP HUB6!!! Not sure if I'll be going but it could be soooo much fun if we managed to get the whole crew going!

Awww bb! D: this news upsets me greatly. Why you have no friends? Must your Caspe come down there and smack-a-bitch?! YOU ARE AWESOME AND SHOULD BE WORSHIPPED AS SUCH!

XD third vote for misfits, guess I'd better give this show a shot! heh
