Happy LJ-versary to me!

A year ago today, after encouragement from louisemcgregor and therealmarajade, I set up an account here at LiveJournal. And now I absolutely cannot live without this place. I have made so many great friends here that I never would have met otherwise. You all rock!

And so I have a couple of gifts for you. I got this idea from the DC comics fandom girls, who enjoy creating birthday fics and art for each other on their birthdays. I have been privileged myself to receive something this way. So! Here's how it will work:

I will write a short (500-1000 words) ficlet for you for your birthday!
1) Give me at least two weeks notice - ETA: Earlier is fine, I have figured out a good way to keep track!
2) Choose a fandom listed in my profile - but if you have a different request, it wouldn't hurt to try
3) Prompt me with a short story idea
4) Enjoy the surprise!

I can't promise that it will be anything award-winning, but it will be a gift from the heart. ♥

Tomorrow, I will post jenn_1's birthday fic, and one for mark_clark is also in the works.

And for a little gift right now, this little tune - a fluffy, upbeat song about how important your friendships are to me! Geoff Moore and the Distance - A Friend Like U

*kisses* all around!

Ah! I finally found this entry!

For starters, happy LJ-versary! I know it's belated, but I gave you well-wishes when it happened. :D

I wanna put a birthday request here! Mine's the 27th of December. Could I get an SR Clois cuddle fic? You can come up with the scenario, but there has to be cuddling involved. Lotsa warmth and stuff. Heck, you could even put it in Deja-verse if you wanted to. Whatever you want, but with cuddling. Pretty please?

Oh, I'm so sorry you had to hunt! In another week, I would have posted the first birthday fic (of 7!! what is with that?? *grins*) for October, and I would have embedded the link...

You got it, girl. It'll be cuddle-porn!

Of course I'll write one for you! Just give me a fandom and a prompt! I can enter it into my calendar at any time. :)

I don't know if I'm allowed here, seeing as it's only been a short that we know each other while so far... although I'd love you to bits, that's for sure...

I'd like something Clois (SR or L&C), funny, and maybe include some kind of costume party...?

My birthday is Nov 4...

Oct. 11th, 2007 11:40 pm (UTC)
You are definitely allowed! Today's birthday girl has only been on my list a little while, too.

I'll add that to my calendar!

Hello, my liege. I just thought that seeing as my fic request was vague and limited to keywords, I should include a more detailed version of the request here:

I'd love a Runaways (Marvel-616) fic, focussing mostly on the character of Chase Stein - everyone's favourite rebel. I think my favourite point in the character's history is when Victor Mancha is being introduced to the team and he asks what Chase's superpower is (as everyone else has one). Chase's response is to point a flick-knife at Victor and claim it's "a poor upbringing."

Seeing as he is the pilot and mechanic of the Leapfrog, as well as Old Lace's master, I would like a ficlet that really illustrates why this IS a superpower in Chase's case!

Oh yeah, and you know when my Birthday is...

I saw this and thought "do I dare ask" I barely know you at all, but I LOVE your SR stuff!!!! My birthday is Nov 18 and hmmm ideas...I know it's probably been done to death, but maybe a reveal fic, with Clark and Lois in trouble and he has to reveal to save them? But seriously, anything you come up with I'll be estatic about :)
htbthomas
Oct. 30th, 2007 11:44 pm (UTC)
Well, it's perfectly fine! Pretty much anyone who comments on my LJ and has friended me is welcome to request one. It keeps the writing skills sharp, at any rate. :)

I wrote "Struggle" just a little while ago, which had a similar plot - a reveal story, though Lois thought she was saving Clark.

Can you add one more detail that might change the scenario? If not, I'll ruminate a while, see what comes out. Reveal fics are fun but challenging to come up with new twists!

Not actually needed at ficlet yet but actually some help
When it does come around (3rd Feb) i would like a Superman returns ficlet.

I joined the 12 Day's of Clois after reading some of yours and Mark C's stories which I love by the way and have added you as my friend here on LJ but i've started by very first SR fic on my own LJ but i'm doing as reader suggested (You want i write sort of thing) I was wondering in your wisdom if you would read the prologue and my other Smallville Clois fic (which i left and left and now there is an ep like it coming up in th show) give me some advice and hopefully some wants of your own.

Also can you point me in the right direction of a good SR icon i only have a Bones one at the moment.

Thank you for letting me rant :)

Hugs and Kisses

Re: Not actually needed at ficlet yet but actually some help
Oh, hey, thanks! Did you know that Mark C is mark_clark here - you should friend him and review his stuff, he likes that. :)

I will write you a ficlet on Feb. 3rd for SR, no problem, just give me a prompt - a short sentence telling you what you'd like to see. Look at some of the other birthday ficlets for what prompts they gave me.

I'll look at the two stories, sure. Do you want them betaed? (This is a good idea, most of us in the 12days_of_clois community use at least one beta to read through for grammar, spelling and plot holes. I use 2-3 most of the time! :D )

But where is the Smallville one located? May I have a link?

Also, go to superman_icons for lots of great Superman icons of all kinds.

Okay, January 9th is my wife's birthday. Could you write a ficlet in which Natalie gets fed up with Monk not paying her that she goes to work for a competitor?

Let me know what else you would need from me.
htbthomas
Dec. 11th, 2007 01:08 pm (UTC)
I think this is all I need - I'll just have to think of a good angle which wouldn't turn into a full-length story. :D! When it's done I'll let you know, so you can send her over to read. :)

My birthday doesn't loom for a few more months (Mar 20)

I'd love something ridiculously fluffy hehe

My records say that you asked for... *checks* ... something SR with music/singing. Is this still what you want? With added fluff, yea, ridiculously so?

Hi again! Putting in my official request now:

Could I please have something in the Superman Returns universe with Clark and Perry babysitting Jason?

Thanks again! And don't worry about getting it done by Dec 31st. I know you're swamped with other holiday-related stuff (and I probably won't be around LJ that much between now and 2008 as it is :( ) so feel free to put this off to when everything has calmed down. :D

I finally figured out what I would like for this! My birthday is Feb. 10th, so it's coming up fairly soon. Therefore, I am glad I thought of something! *boogies*

I want Scarred!Harry (Spidey 3) fic! Almost anything, so long as he is ALIVE. :D

'allo. Decided to submit my b-day, even though it's still 6 weeks away. Hey, it's fun, yes? :D

Anyhoo, me birthday is March 6, and I'd love to see some fluffy togetherness between SR Supes and Lois (post-reveal). pr0n-ish or not, either way is fine - I'll leave that up to you and your muse. :)

OR if you feel like trying something new, Bruce/Diana is always happiness for me. XD
htbthomas
Jan. 22nd, 2008 11:18 pm (UTC)
Hmm. With SR, I probably need a little more prompt-wise, I've written so many...

But Bruce/Diana sounds quite intriguing. Any particular 'verse or angle?

Oh, I love the birthday fic idea. It's sweet :)

My birhtday is March 31st and let's see... I don't suppose you write in any anime fandoms?

*checks profile*

Nope, none listed. I must think upon this and choose my fandom wisely...
htbthomas
Feb. 12th, 2008 02:34 am (UTC)
Nope - I've watched a few, but I don't think I'm comfortable enough to take the plunge, although...

*checks your profile*
*hopes she won't regret this*

I could probably write Firefly or Howl?

My birthday's April 2.

I'd love to read some (pre-OMD) Marvel 616 Peter/MJ, or even Peter/MJ post-Spidey but pre-Mayday discovering her powers in Spider-Girl. In other words, the stuff JoeyQ stole from us.
htbthomas

Added it to the calendar!

Ah sorry, my birthday is March the 22th but i only heard about this genius idea tonight.
It's ok if you take your time or if you can't write me a fic. I just figured I ought to try.
So, I like Clois, or Chlark. And ah... MaDi from Veronica Mars.
Thanks
htbthomas
Mar. 16th, 2008 12:59 am (UTC)
Well, hello! This is the first request I've received from someone not on my friends list! :D (Although we can definitely friend each other, too, I like friends.)

I would definitely write Clois, although, Chlark would have to be a friends-only situation. I usually use Chloe as a secondary character in Smallville Clois fics, though, and can if you want. Though I loved VM, I am not confident in writing it!

If you would give me a prompt - a word, a situation - it makes the writing process much easier.

And I have two other fics due the same week, so I hope it's okay if it's on the short side?

Welcome to the insanity. :)
