I should be gaming tonight, but I really couldn't handle even the idea of company, so I'm just hermitting, and watching Community, which has become my happy place :)

LOOK WHAT [ profile] shan_3414 MADE FOR ME! It's so, so lovely. A perfect marriage of song and imagery, just wonderful. Thank you, Shan. It was so worth the wait :D
These girls are my Skins OTP forever. I miss them :(

Kind of a random picture to start off with, but then I think this post may turn out to be made up of kind of random things, so whatever. I've been on Tumblr for about a month and nothing has changed my initial impression that it's largely a whole array of very pretty (and sometimes very pervy) pictures. Which is nice, of course, but it rather fails on the whole interaction thing, which is one of the things I like most about LJ. Given that, I'm super happy that both [ profile] shan_3414 and [ profile] blurubberband55 have expressed their intention to come home :). It's been so quiet here recently, it'll be nice for things to be a little more lively :). Of course, I can't guarantee that I'll post more myself. I always intend to, but I'm so good at just faffing my time away that, well, I'm never as productive as I'd like at anything (who is?).
Anyway, where was I? Ah yes, this!
Pretties and randomness behind the cut. )

Back in Liverpool and back to work after a very pleasant week away. Now I have to sort out all that building work that I was putting off until after I came back (which my insurance doesn't cover. There's a shock :/). But it's Friday night so that can wait for a little bit longer.
On the plus side, game night is back to the Warhammer 'Enemy Within' campaign, which YAY nostalgia :D. This instalment is Death on the Reik, which I think we played all the way through when it was first published back in 1987 (LOLscary :D), although I don't remember any of the plot. I know we didn't get as far as the next part (Power Behind the Throne) because Steve started to read it and threw up his hands in defeat (from what I've heard it's long, extremely complex and not the slightest bit linear, so it's a bit of a nightmare for a GM to run. Our current GM seems to be happy to face the challenge, though, which is nice). Not much has changed since we played part 2 (Shadows Over Bogenhafen) last year. We're still ridiculous, immature, and entirely incapable of coming up with a coherent, well thought-out plan without resorting to hitting things. So, to put it briefly, it's a lot of fun :D

Anyway, for lack of much else interesting to say, I'm going to spend a little while spamming you with pretty pictures and stuff.
Firstly, here's a few pictures of Chipping Campden, where we stayed last week. Specifically, it's the outbuildings of Old Campden House, which was built by the fabulously named Sir Baptist Hicks at the end of the 16th Century and destroyed 50 or so years later, in the Civil War (the Hicks were Royalist, which the Roundheads obviously had something to say about). What remains (there were separate banqueting houses and whatnot) is still rather lovely though.

Cut to save your friendspage :D )

Well, I can't believe it's that time again, but seeing as how I've just now finished betaing the 14th and last part of the story that [ profile] triptohere started for last year's Skins Big Bang (LOL It turned out a little longer than expected :D), it seems kind of fitting.
So, here goes!

So, I changed service provider, because my connection was intermittent at best and ridiculously slow. And that meant being without the internet for a whole week. And yes, I have limited access at work, and I resorted to cafes with wireless connections a couple of times, but god, it was painful.
I'm not quite sure when the internet stopped being something that was kind of useful for buying out-of-print books on eBay and became an absolute and fundamental necessity of life. I know it happened even before there were people in my life with whom the internet's my main form of communication, but obviously that makes all the difference.
Which is all to say, I don't post all that much, so you probably mostly haven't noticed that I've been gone, but I've missed you guys.
I have so much to catch up on, and so many comments to write. It may take me a while :)

The usual rambly under the cut :) )

Yay :) Friday night, so a nice lazy evening with DVDs (I got 'The Vampire Diaries' from Cath for Christmas which looks a lot of fun) and gin (LOL obviously. I'm turning into my mother :D).
In which I ramble )

God, so busy. And obviously today I managed to fritter away most of today being all knackered and needing recover from the rest of the week. Annoying! (Also annoying: a boiler that only works about 50% of the time, and so I have to boil water to wash the other 50%. Twice, I've had someone to look at it, but because the fault is intermittent, it's kind of hard to track down. If it carries on, he'll have to start replacing the expensive bits. Boo).

The Skins Big Bang seems to be a massive success, and I'm very much enjoying my beta-ing duties. I occasionally think I've bitten off a little more than I can chew, but hey, I like doing it, so (it's like: I have actual permission to be pedantic at people, and they can't complain. How good is that? :p ).
And talking of the Skins BB, our glorious leader (AKA [ profile] shan_3414 :)) made this a few days ago, and god, it's so lovely. It makes all kinds of nostalgic. Just beautiful.

Written for the [ profile] femslash_today porn battle.
This is the most explicit thing I've ever written, and it's way too smutty for me to be comfortable with anyone I actually know in real life reading it. So it's locked to you guys for the moment. I hope you enjoy it :)
Unlocked now. If you know me in real life, I'd really rather you didn't read this. And if you choose to, let's never speak of it. 'k?

Disclaimer: I don't own Skins or these characters.

The title and opening quotation are from a song by Heather Nova

Beta-ing and invaluable moral support from the incomparable [ profile] flister. Thanks dude ♥

“Look at me I'm smooth like a shell,
Put your head down
You can hear the ocean.
Hold my body - feel it roll,
So much inside and it's all been broken.”
Effy stares at her own reflection as she listens to the sobs emanating from the cubicle behind her. )
