Birthday greetings, nominations, request for information
Belated birthday greetings to gillo, lk737, liz_marcs, moedonna, selinde2, krjemb, ljs, tessarin, beldam1, and to flurblewig.

Sorry I missed the actual dates; I've hardly been on LiveJournal at all recently. I stumbled upon a 'Baldur's Gate' fanfic site that I thought had been abandoned years ago and I've been doing some extensive reading. When I finished that I received several notifications that I have been nominated for various awards at 'Twisting the Hellmouth', for 'Tabula Avatar' and 'Noggin and the Vampire', and since then I've been reading and re-reading other nominees so that I can vote. Plus, of course, my usual nights at work and time spent writing.

Casting my votes will involve hard decisions. In one category ffutures' Modesty Blaise crossover 'Counter-Coup' is up against keswindhover's Discworld crossover 'Dwarfbread'. I've been trying to make my mind up on that one for three days. There are other categories in which the decision will be almost as hard. I don't like voting without having read at least part of all the entries and so I have a lot of reading to do. Of course some authors make it easy for me; those who talk of Faith having gone 'rouge', or who mix up 'where' and 'were', pretty much rule themselves out of consideration unless the plot and characterisation are really quite exceptional.

Only existing members of TtH can vote and so there's no point in anyone not already a member rushing off there to support me (or Marcus, Kes, Booster, etc); but if any existing members do want to vote for me 'Noggin and the Vampire' is up for 'Best Cartoons Crossover'; 'Tabula Avatar' for 'Best Miscellaneous Crossover', 'Best Unfinished Crossover (Other)', 'Best Portrayal of a Villain (Tazok)', and 'Best Pairing (Spike/Viconia)'; and I'm up for 'Best Crossover Author'. Thanks to whoever made the nominations - I was nominated more than once in some categories and so I believe I have more than one person to thank.

The next chapter of 'Tabula Avatar' is well under way but I'd appreciate some advice on US slang from an American member of my F-list. I'm after a colloquial term for female pubic hair that Buffy might use.

I really like 'Dwarfbread' ... which doesn't help you, since I haven't read the other one and couldn't compare them. Congrats on the noms!

Thank you!

That category has several outstanding stories in it. A 'Mr Men' crossover, a 'Jeeves and Wooster' crossover, and the two that I mentioned. All excellent but I can only vote for one.

I wish I had more time to read fanfiction. So many great writers out there, and I've barely scratched a story for weeks, now. Not reading/writing makes Mark unhappy ... :-(

The annoying thing there is that I think I nominated Dwarfbread - though I doubt I was the only one to nominate it.

I've been beaten by fics that I nominated several times.

Congrats on the nominations!

And uh, bush?

Thanks! Yes, I've gone with bush.

Which is not a phrase that I'd ever have pictured myself using in any other context than answering the question 'who did you pick as the worst ever US president?'

Congratulations on the nominations!

And as to your question... 'bush'?
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: December 22nd, 2007 01:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you!

I've used 'bush'.

Congrats on the noms! Another term might be "treasure trail" but this also applies to the barely noticeable sliver of hair that starts on a woman's belly button and goes down to her crotch. Also my ex used to refer to the area as her "coutchie."

I used to get a good laugh from people in World of Warcraft who asked questions in chat about playing their "Rouge."

Thank you! I've gone with 'bush'.

I've written two stories in which Wesley is a Rouge Demon Hunter; in one the demon steals cosmetics, in the other Rouge Demons are an important ingredient in their manufacture.

Thank you! You can vote in up to 40 categories.

Congrats on the nominations! Richly deserved.

As to the advice...well, bush or muff. Hope it helps.
