Story Spotlight: Stay

Okay, so I finally have a smidgen of time to myself now that the Boo is back in school. And so I’m going to begin posting my spotlights again! Seems like there’s a cyclical pattern to the years where I absolutely CANNOT get anything done during the summer. Ya know, except not lose, maim or otherwise allow harm to come to my hellions darling children.

So, kjwrit (one of my absolutely favorite authors ever!) finished one of her stories tonight, so I figured I’d shine a spotlight on it. It’s a continuation after Dead Ever After, since the series had such a spectacular crash-and-burn ending.

It is of course rated M, as is everything she writes. But it’s a hilarious and exciting continuation that has an actual plot and actually makes sense. (*gasp* You mean there are people out there who care about these characters enough to give them a satisfactory ending?!? Shocking!)

It’s fairly short, 9 chapters and an epilouge, but it’s totally worthy of your time and energy. Not to mention, you should follow this awesome gal because her updates are seriously almost as funny as the stories she comes up with. And she also always give a heaping dose of SkarsPorn, which is yet another reason that I love getting updates from her. :o)

So, go check out kjwrit’s Stay and leave her some love.

New Story: Blind Oblivion

I have almost finished a new story, and sent it to my awesome new beta (Thanks Nix!). So I’m beginning to post! Yay!

It’s called Blind Oblivion and some of you may remember a teaser I posted…last year I believe. This is that story…but much better and more fleshed out. So…hopefully you’ll enjoy. I’m aiming for pretty regular updates, but I’m impatient, so I may just post as soon as I get them back from Nix. :o)

I’m sure you’re all so upset about that.

Check out Blind Oblivion here!

Fanfic News!

Okay, so if you check out the Fanfic Scribbles page at the top of this blog, there are some changes! I’ve put aside my completely weird obsessive need to have a story completed before posting. So I’m beginning to post what I’ve got. There is a new story entitled ‘Memories’, which is a Lucy/Caspian story that wouldn’t get out of my head.

Fear not my fellow Eric and Sookie lovers, they are still my number one couple. I seriously have like 6 stories started for them. I’m figuring that if I start posting and get some feedback and encouragement, maybe I’ll write faster.

So go check everything out. Thanks and I hope you enjoy!

Merry Almost Christmas side stories

And due to many requests, I’ve begun side stories for Merry almost Christmas. I specifically got requests for:
1. Sookie and Erics wedding
2. Sookie teaching Godric how to cook
3. Their trip to Sweden

I need input from all my lovelies here! Are there any other side stories you may want to read? Or any ideas for any of the ideas up there? I have my own, but since I’m neurotic about posting (ie, I won’t post until its already complete) I won’t be able to utilize the lovely comments that people tend to post. So I’m asking in advance. As always, if you don’t want to leave a comment on the blog, you can email me at kelpieskorner@gmail.com or PM me on fanfiction.net.

Thanks darlins!

Story Spotlight: The Devil Wears…Discount?

Last up in ChanelAddict’s story lineup is The Devil Wears…Discount?. This is the only story that’s still in progress that I’m spotlighting, but it’s just THAT good.

This is the classic role reversal where the woman is in the power position…or is she? This whole journey of self discovery is a really great insight into what happens when you have a woman in a position of power and how that can (and I feel usually does) affect her. Throw in the hot assistant and just–dayum!

Yeah this is another “edge of my seat” story. Sound familiar yet? I told you she was an awesome writer! Anyhoo-this complicated story is perfectly woven together to give the reader a glimpse into the psyches of two very different-yet very similar-people. The dichotomy of this is a little astounding when you really sit down to think about it. Let’s get into some details!

 

Summary
Sookie is a VP of her family run fashion company with a icy repuation and little to no personal life.Eric is the lanky math nerd hired as her mismatched assistant.He’s thrown into a life of tight deadlines, tense meetings, & insane pressure to be perfect. Will it change him or will he change it?

Where You Can Find The Devil Wears…Discount?
Again, it’s listed on ChanelAddict’s wordpress site, although it’s linked back to FF.net. I still think it’s worth it to check out the wordpress though. It’s pretty damn spiffy.

So break out your oversized sunglasses and retro bathing suit and bathe in the gloriousness that is The Devil Wears…Discount! Just make sure to use your sunblock! :o)

Story Spotlight: Southern Belles

Next up in the ChanelAddict lineup: Southern Belles!

Now, I was born in the South. But I am in NO WAY a southern belle. I question everything and go my own direction and pretty much rebel against anything someone wants me to do-just because. And-somehow-I can totally identify with everything Sookie goes through in this story. The intense emotional back and forth–she just captures it SO well. I’m racking my brain to find something else to say that won’t give away some crucial plot point, but I can’t think of anything. Honestly, this was one story that had me constantly checking my email until it was finished. And then when it was finished it lingered in my mind. Like, forever. Seriously. So let’s hear some more, shall we?

 

Summary
Former beauty Queen & all around Southern Belle, Sookie is left wondering if she can have the perfect life she was raised to want, or can she branch out on her own when she falls in love with her boyfriend’s best friend.

Special Extras
There is a soundtrack page for this story on ChanelAddict’s wordpress site, which is just completely awesome! She’s got the videos posted for the songs as well, which really gives you a feel for the emotions, what’s going on and everything.

Where You Can Find Southern Belles
Like I always say, you can find this story on wordpress and FF.net. But I’d highly recommend you at least look at the wordpress page first. The actual story isn’t there-it will direct you to FF.net. However, that’s where you will find the soundtrack page. Ya know, if you don’t follow the direct link I’ll be posting, but whatever.

So, get yer drawl on y’all and head over to read Southern Belles! (Yeah–I have issues…) :o)

 

Story Spotlight: Life, Accidental

First in ChanelAddict’s story lineup is an awesome story, which is thankfully complete. Which means that you should rush over to any site it’s posted on and devour it. Seriously.

In this beautiful story where you can see disaster at every turn, you can make out the real life struggle inherent to all humans. What starts out as a complicated and messy situation, with heartbreak and struggle running rampant, turns into a harmonious and wonderful story. It’s almost like looking into my own life—with absolutely none of the same situations, but still. It’s a weird ability ChanelAddict has that no matter how different from my life or how far fetched the idea-I can identify with it. And generally when I start squealing in glee or crying with the heartbreak of the characters, all my husband can do is sigh and give me a hug. There are authors who can do this to me–most of whom I’ll spotlight eventually–but the majority of the stories I read just don’t move me like that. I can like them til the cows come home, but at the end of the day I can put aside those emotions. This story in particular, it was very hard to forget between updates. So here’s some more specifics for you!

 

Summary

Where You Can Find Life, Accidental
You can find this story on FF.net (although that site is extremely unreliable lately) and ChanelAddict’s wordpress site. I, personally, would go the wordpress route, simply because FF.net is being such a pain in the behind.

Life, Accidental
**for the wordpress, on the front page for the story there is a link to FF.net. Ignore this and choose the chapters from the drop down menu at the top**

Alright, go do some reading. Be prepared to laugh, be prepared to cry, and be prepared for an awesome journey!
