Curiouswombat and daughter-dear are home now, but I'm working so I'm hardly getting to see them.

I won yet another runner-up award at the current round of the Lost in Spike Awards.  I would have had no idea at all if I hadn't seen congratulations to me in some of my Friends' journals.  I wonder how they found out?  Congratulations to all the other winners (most of them are on my F-list, too many to list on a work day).

Yay! Congratulations! I really enjoyed that fic and it is very deserving of awards.

I saw your latest fic, but I have absolutely no idea what Baulder's Gate is - would I still be able to "get" your story without any background? 'cause I really hate missing out on a S2C fic. *g*

I've never played the game and I "get" it and love the story. And you have twenty-five plus chapters to read now. What are you waiting for? It's fabulous as all S2C's stuff is!

Cool! I adore S2C's work, but I generally tend to read crossovers in fandoms that I'm familiar with. Baulder's Gate is a game? Like a RPG? Or a Playstation game? Thanks for your rec - I'll definitely ave to start reading!

*hugs*

Thank you!

Bauldur's Gate 2 is a PC Roleplaying game based on the Dungeons and Dragons rules. I don't know if you'd be able to get it without background or not, but others seem to be managing; the Scoobies are discovering the world and its rules as they go.

I must admit I'm not reading your BtVS/Labyrinth crossover either. I love your writing in other stories, of course, but the snag is that I have seen Labyrinth and I actively hated everything about it. One of those movies that I wouldn't see a second time even for money.

Okay! If the Scoobies don't know about it, either and are just discovering the rules, I'll have to give it a read.

My biggest problem when I got assigned the story in the CYA ficathon was in trying to make my story different enough from the actual movie, so that if someone had seen the movie, they'd recognize the universe, but in making the incidents support the story I'm trying to tell. So, there are appearances from some of the Labyrinth characters and the story does involve Giles ad Xander trying to "rescue" Dawn from Jareth, but it's basically the story of Dawn searching for meaning in life after learning she isn't "real" and then within months, losing both her mother and sister, if you wanted to just give the first chapter a try. if not, or if you hate it, I won't be offended. The Labyrinth isn't for everyone! I'm also doing a 2 years-post Chosen ensemble fic, featuring Xander as the main character, butvarious other characters eventually show up. The first chapter is posted here and another chapter should be up Thursday, if you're interested. I'm just so excited to be writing again, since I started this new medicine!

And, now I have some Balder's Gate to look forward to!

Congratulations! It's a great story and the award is well deserved.

No email came round - I only found out through another friend's post, too.

Sorry to hear you're working like a mad thing - hardly fair when the rest of us are on holiday. Hope it lets up soon.

((hugs))

Many congrats. Runner up is preferable to not placed, IMO.

Thank you! I thought you'd have been gone by now; I was going to leave you a comment on your journal but didn't because I thought you wouldn't see it for months.

I haven't read Chapter 12 of Soul Searching yet because I got confused; I saw that it was up but couldn't read it there and then, and when I went back to look for it I couldn't find it and thought that I must have imagined it. Actually it was because I'd forgotten that you have two journals and I was looking on the wrong one. I'll be reading it next time I have a long enough space in my eat-sleep-eat-work routine. Of course it might be August before you read the feedback that I'll leave!
