relax, take it easy...  

So the results for tw_fandom_award went up last night and omg I actually made the list with three of my fics! Colour me gobsmacked because seriously, with the awesomeness that I was up against I really wasn't expecting it at all, I was just so chuffed to have made the nominations list that to actually have 'won' on any level has completely knocked me for six! My mood has suddenly improved a great deal ;) heh

The categories/fics I made the list for are:
Best Crossover : 3rd Place : Just Like the Wind [TW/Heroes | Ianto/Peter]
Best Gen : 3rd Place : Coffee Comfort [Ianto, Tosh]
Best PWP : 3rd Place : Shapes That Go Together [Jack/Ianto]

The fact I'm anywhere near the PWP list is just... it makes me laugh so hard. Are you people crazy? Seriously!? XD MY PWP!? God, who knew I had it in me!! hehe. 

Many, many thanks to everyone who nominated and voted on my fics, I have so much love for you guys. It's amazing to be up on the lists with so many other great names. A great honour to be honest. And congratulations to everyone on my flist who also made the lists! ::cracks open the champaigne:: Anyone fancy a celebration? ;)

Another thing I feel like celebrating is the fact that (even though I won't find out if I've made it through round 2.02 of writerinadrawer), I got my entry for round 2.03 completed last night and am so very pleased with how the piece turned out. Once again I was pushing the word limit but it was so much... well, I won't say "fun", but it was definitely interesting and has gotten me in the mood to explore certain similar themes in an expanded piece ::deliberatly vague:: I figure if I get kicked out this round (a likely possibility, but I'll talk about that once the results go up) then I can just edit this 'entry' and turn it into a proper ficlet and... yeah. I'm inspired for it, just not sure when I'll have the time to play around with it what with the mother situation and my NVQ3 project work.

Speaking of which! In regards to my NVQ3 work, I just got word back from my assessor about four pieces of work I submitted a while back and have discovered that my grades are sitting at three A's and one B!! OMG. I don't think I even did that good when I was at school! lmao. So am very excited and definitely in the right frame of mind to keep going with my self-impossed deadlines. If nothing else the tediousness of it all keeps my mind from wondering and thinking about the things I really don't want to spend too long contemplating, so it's all good!

Which reminds me! I feel I should make mention to you guys that I've officially pulled out of doing tardis_bigbang. Most of you can probably guess why, and for those who don't, all you need to know are that there are some real life things going on at the moment that are stressing my brain so hard that I know I wouldn't be able to cope with the deadlines they're working to for the rest of April/May. See? I can look after my mental health when I really need to! I am gutted that I had to pull out, but when I started deleting huge chunks from my working draft because I was having an 'off-mood' about the whole thing, I knew it was time to take a step out. There's perfecting and over-perfection and I was going extreme on the latter of those. But huge fangirly hugs to everyone who has been cheering me along. I'm sorry I couldn't keep it going but can promise that it'll be out at some point this year ;) consolation much? haha. 

Okay. I think I've molested ya'll with enough word vomit for one evening, so am going to toddle on off and get the latest NVQ3 module typed up and printed to keep the boss happy. Then I'ma come back and peer at the screen from between my fingers to see the results for Team Pterodactyl in writerinadrawer. Wish me luck?
((I am going really, just one more thing I have to note: to anyone who saw a post up on my LJ about bookshelves? Yeah. They weren't mine! I downloaded LJ mobile and now everytime I take/recieve a picture my phone automatically tries to post it to my LJ. I need to edit my settings but basically that post was actually a message I recieved from a friend. Thank goodness she didn't send me anything compromising! ;D))

I'm still really happy for you!!! See now I really wanna write you congrats fic for winning them awards for some peculiar reason! Don't ask, I'm in a strange mood!!! Still Squee and congrats!

Oh I got my WIAD fic done, looked over and ready to post. Not planning on posting till I know the results of this round!!!

Shame about you having to pull out of the Tardis Big Bang, but understandable. ::Hugs:: Real life has gotta come first and totally understand that, as I'm sure everyone over at that com will as well! XD

I'm pretty much pulling out of everything I signed up for at the moment, and if I hadn't been booted from WAID, that would have been next. But you know, I'll get to writing that BB fic at somepoint and hopefully everyone is still interested in reading it by then! hehe

Good luck with your WAID entry this week! I may stay away from the voting though ;)
Joulez217: Atlantisjoulez217 on April 18th, 2008 08:01 pm (UTC)
Hey any fic of yours I'm open to reading! What I like your fic! XD

Heehee, yes maybe you shld! Although if I tell you the title of said fic....you could read it and not vote for it that way ;)
Campaspecs_whitewolf on April 18th, 2008 08:06 pm (UTC)
lmao, naughty!!

But I'm staying very unbiased so if you told me which fic was yours I wouldn't vote either way for it :P
Joulez217: Dabblingjoulez217 on April 18th, 2008 08:07 pm (UTC)

Gah I can't win can I!!! Fine then you'll just have to take a guess which is mne! :P ;) XD

YAY for us! I was so geeked to even get nominated for the awards....but to actually place was cool as hell!

I've not even started my WIAD piece, although I know what I am writing, because I am frantically trying to finish up BigBang over here.

Oh god, is it time for the WIAD voting results yet?
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2.06 \\ Ianto & Marthacs_whitewolf on April 18th, 2008 07:57 pm (UTC)
Go us! I was pretty gobsmacked at being up there with the rest of the winners. Can't wait to get ahold of the shiney banners we've been promised either XD heh.

Good luck with WAID hun! Hope you do just (if not better) than you managed last time.

Ambractheinvisible17 on April 16th, 2008 07:46 pm (UTC)
Whee! Congratulations on everthing! You deserve it! \o/

And I'm sure everyone understands about you pulling out. Some things just have to come first. *hugs*

Good luck! *crosses everything*

LOL at the bookshelves. I was wondering about that.

I'm pulling out of everything I've signed up for, but I will try and get to writing again as soon as I know everything is going to be okay :)

What the fuck? My Picture was on your LJ?! I feel so exposed. :( Next time i'll send something much more compromising ;)!

Well done with work! You're defo the smart one, I don't think i've ever had grades like that! We must celebrate on Sat, do you think she'd mind if we have a celebratory drink at lunch?
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2.11 \\ Ianto got the creamcs_whitewolf on April 18th, 2008 08:00 pm (UTC)
You'd better make it a good one ;)

hah, I never got grades like that at school (well aside from in Latin and Classics, but I actually *liked* them). So, am very chuffed with myself XD haha... man should have said, there's budwiser in the fridge and champaigne... it might be for Margo leaving but well... we don't have to tell them ;)

Hey Hon, firstly congrats on placing in the awards it's richly deserved. Secondly congrats on you NVQ3 grades and I'm thrilled for you.

Sorry about Big band but completely understandable please send your family my luv and hugs and if you need anything just holla.

Good luck with writer in the drawer I'm suitably intrigued by your vagueness LOL

Oh My fic has gone up and so far the comments have been wonderful I'm thrilled.

Anyways look forward to seeing the fic when it gets done

luv dxx

Thanks very much :D I'm glad to have some points of squee in amongst all the emoing I'm doing. That said, got some bad news in but it's still to fresh to put into words so I'ma hold off talking about it for a few days yet, but I really appreciate your concern hun, it means so much to me. Also, I hope you grandpa is going to be okay :(( I did read your post but, well, it set me off again so I couldn't reply but am thinking about you too! ::hugs::
conjunkieconjunkie on April 19th, 2008 10:46 am (UTC)
Hey Caspe,

I'm so sorry you've had bad news too, just know I'm thinking about you, it's what we do we lean on each other and we get through it, I think the first thing I'm gonna do when I see you on Friday is give you a big hug. Oh and as for talking about it you do that when your ready, everybody is different for me part of my coping mechanism is getting it out in the open. getting it off my chest so hence the post. Anyways Hun, take care talk soon **smishes you**

Luv dxx

I'm frantically refreshing writerinadrawer over here, because I'm super worried about this week :/
Campaspe: Torchwood Novels \\ Painted Iantocs_whitewolf on April 16th, 2008 09:34 pm (UTC)
Eep! You and me both!!

Which was yours? I'm worried I'll be booted out for 'weirdness' (mine was #17).
beewhimsicalbeewhimsical on April 16th, 2008 09:43 pm (UTC)
Mine was 16 - 'The Grieving Man'.

I'm sorry to see you out - I honestly didn't think yours was one of the worse, and didn't vote for it myself. I was really looking forward to see what you did with this weeks challenge too, because you seemed so excited!
Campaspe: Harry Potter \\ Mischevious Weasleycs_whitewolf on April 16th, 2008 09:49 pm (UTC)
Oh that one wasn't too bad! I got all wibbly over Ianto in it XD didn't vote either way on it though.

And don't worry- I'm actually kind of relieved to be honest. I would probably have had to pull out after this week anyway. And I sort of knew I'd be out because of my entry.

Oh, I'll still be posting my other entry, I just get to edit it and go over the word count now ;)

Yay! *dances about* Caspe got in, Caspe got in! *grins* (I'm assuming you realize this means I voted for you ;))

And yeah, that's sort of how I feel -- now that I know I got voted out in that/this round, I'm contemplating making the story longer than the original 400 words...mainly because I feel it would be better as a chaptered fic than a ficlet. *laughs*

And oh, I'm sorry to hear that. :( Can't say I'm exactly surprised -- what with all that's going on in your life, I'm surprise you haven't pulled out sooner -- but I was looking forward to reading more. Maybe later, huh? :P

P.S. Oh, okay. *laughs* I was like "...bwuh?" *snickers slightly*
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2.07 \\ Ianto/Rissen Mittencs_whitewolf on April 18th, 2008 08:04 pm (UTC)

I just posted up my superpowers entry just to see what everyone thinks about it, still may expand it though! What did you end up writing for this round? At least we get to be all comfy in our drawers with Ianto waiting on us, eh? ;)
a silent tsunami of stealth: tw // ianto // amusedsundayschild on April 18th, 2008 08:40 pm (UTC)
*smishes back* :)

This round? It's kind of hard to explain, but I guess the main premise was that Gwen got affected by some sort of alien technology and it gave her an acute form of telekenisis...which then caused her to accidentally blow stuff up whenever she got mad. *laughs* The first thing to go was all the glass in Jack's office. XD
