I'm back!

My surgery went well, I'm still in quite a bit of pain and on more medication than I'd really like to be taking. Between the pain and the medication I still get tired very quickly and easily. Because of that I'm about a week behind in my tv watching. Remaining un-spoiled for certain shows is a bit of a trial at times.

Sep. 19th, 2013

I haven't spent much time on LJ for quite awhile, but I wanted to do a quick-ish update and let everyone know what's been going on lately.

Before I forget, I want to say thanks to those of you that wished me a Happy Birthday. ;)

My main reason for abandoning LJ is basically still there, I feel out of place and a bit uncomfortable within my various fandoms and since I think of LJ as mainly a fandom playground I've just stayed away. I also haven't really been moved to make graphics lately so I've not even had that as a reason to post. However, should anyone want graphics from me, don't hesitate to ask. I was recently reminded by kitty_fic that I do actually enjoy making them. I also wouldn't be adverse to a bit of poking if anyone sees something they think I'd really enjoy. Pointing out new fic I've probably missed would be cool too, my fandoms and pairings are still listed in a sticky post at the top of my journal.

Now on to a more personal and immediate issue. On August 17th I woke up with a sharp pain in my back ha felt like a possible pinched nerve. Then a week later it got really bad and I went to the hospital. They, unhelpfully, said it was probably just a sprained muscle and sent me home with Percocet. This past Friday I finally had an MRI. It turns out that I have a very bad herniated disc between my C6 & C7 vertebrae, which is pushing against a nerve. I'm scheduled for surgery Monday morning. Needless to say I probably won't be online much after this weekend, a least for a week or two. However, I am checking Twitter regularly from my phone so I'll see any messages sent to me there. :)

Well, I've just about hit the limit of my typing ability before my back and shoulder start to complain so, ttfn. ;p

If your only knowledge of The Who is "Behind Blue Eyes" or the CSI themes (Who Are You, Baba O'Riley, Won't Get Fooled Again), you're really missing out!

Family Trees

And the Extra Credit challenge was to create a family tree of 5 or more people for a character  and a family tree of 10 or more people for a ship using people from other fandoms (up to 2 family members from the same fandom are allowed).

Oh, and my boyfriend just bought the box set of Farscape so we will be watching it soon as well. (I've not seen it - NO SPOILERS PLEASE).

Postcards Between Friends

Our latest challenge @ landofart was to create postcard 'sets' between two characters from different fandoms. I immediately knew I wanted to use Methos somehow. A story idea started to form and the exchange is between Adam Pierson and Severus Snape (Harry Potter). We didn't need to create a story to go with the postcards but I knew if I wanted my idea to work I'd have to have one. This isn't a fic, it's more of an outline or timeline but it does tell a complete, abbreviated, story. It even has a new take on where Immortals come from. Please don't crucify me for this!
