 Sentinel Thursday, the fantastic community that caused me to join LiveJournal in early 2003, is about to issue its 500th prompt.

By way of celebration, there is a post up in which anyone can rec their favourite fics that have been posted to Sentinel Thursday. Self-reccing is also explicitly encouraged!

If you have had any connection with Sentinel Thursday over the past few years, either as a reader or an author, please come and join in. Recs are love! Let's revisit all the fab fics that have kept this wonderful community going for so many years. I regard Sentinel Thursday as the foundation and the backbone of the TS fandom on LiveJournal - it is part of our living history. Let's support it and show it our love!

The rec post is here:

 Hi all, life has been rather hectic and stressful of late with one thing and another, so it has taken me a while to finish the next part of Fathers' Day. However the next part is now up and posted, so please feel free to take a look if you've been reading along (or feel free to take the plunge, if you haven't :-)).

Fathers' Day

It is still not finished, though. There is a bit more to go. Basically I broke poor Blair and Jim, and fixing them properly is taking a little time and effort, ha ha.

Also, in case you're interested, I posted a silly bit of crack writing recently as well. You can find it here:

On Intermittent Bouts of Writer's Block

ANOTHER part of Fathers' Day

South Park Me
 I am on a roll this weekend, in that another part of Fathers' Day has just gone up.

http://archiveofourown.org/works/944153

It is a short-ish part, but still not the last as Jim and Blair keep wanting to take it slow and of course I must do what they tell me.

I'll be working on more during the week, so watch this space!

More of Fathers' Day is up:

Close to the end now, one more part, perhaps? Maybe two? I know I keep saying the next part will be the last... :-). But we really are almost there. Hoping to finish it over the weekend, all being well (life has been a bit up and down of late).

 Another part of Fathers' Day has been posted. I seem to be somewhat on a roll with this story!

http://archiveofourown.org/works/944153

Probably only two more chapters to go. I'm hoping to get the next one up over the coming weekend, life, the universe and everything permitting.

Story News - More of Fathers' Day

South Park Me
 I have just posted another chapter of Fathers' Day at AO3, if anyone fancies a dose of really intense angst :-D

http://archiveofourown.org/works/944153

I'm rocking ahead with this right now! It's pretty close to being finished, maybe two or three more chapters to go.

I'm enjoying writing a WIP again, I'd got completely out of the habit! I enjoy the discipline of knocking each part into decent shape before I post, and trying to keep the whole story internally consistent as I go along. It's a completely different process to the way Gilly and I wrote Decimated, where we went back over and over a very rough draft in endless rounds of editing.

Story news - a couple of updates at AO3

South Park Me
 In case anyone fancies a look, I've updated a couple of works at AO3.

1. Haikus!
Those of you who have been on my flist for lo, these many years may remember that, back in 2006, I went through a period of writing haikus for every episode. They were silly little things, meant to be humorous, and to my joy made a few people laugh :-). I only ever wrote Seasons 1 - 3 though. But! As of yesterday, Season 4 has been added. This entailed some recent re-watching of Season 4 episodes, oh how I suffer for my art.

You can find the complete set of haikus for all four seasons here: The Slash and H/C Addict's Seasons 1 to 4 (Haikus)

2. Fathers' Day
I've today added a chapter to a WIP which I have not updated for a long time: Fathers' Day. This is a very sad, extremely sad and did I mention SAD story. Please heed the warnings and only read if you don't mind angst up the wazoo. The two things I can promise are that I will continue writing until it is done (slow going though that may be, as evidenced by the time between this update and the last) and that, dysfunctional though Jim and Blair's relationship is, there will be a resolution with at least a glimmer of hopefulness eventually.

Here it is, if you are feeling brave: Fathers' Day

Solstice at Newgrange today

Ireland: Spirals
 A few years ago I wrote a story (which turned into a series) about Jim and Blair in Ireland: The Irish Saga.

In the first story in the series, Three Spirals, I wrote about Jim and Blair going inside Newgrange to witness the winter solstice sunrise.

If you've read Three Spirals you might be interested in this short video from RTE news today. Today, of course, is the winter solstice, and the lucky lottery winners got to go inside the chamber to see the sunrise, as Jim and Blair did. And of course many others gathered outside, enjoying the celebratory atmosphere. This is a lovely bit of film, that really captures the atmosphere:

I've been to Newgrange myself many times, though not on the solstice. It is a magical place, and very close to my heart.

Happy solstice to you all :-)

TS: Manly Hug
Technically I should post this tomorrow, but work commitments will not allow, therefore I am posting it today instead :-)

I am celebrating my tenth anniversary today! It is the tenth anniversary of my first ever posted story in The Sentinel fandom; my first posted fanfiction story ever, in fact. Happy anniversary to me!

 Well, at last the 30 days of exclusivity for our Moonridge donators is over, and Gilly AKA Panik and I have been able to post our new, previously unseen collaborative story at AO3.

You can find Decimated here:

http://archiveofourown.org/works/1048271

It is slash and contains violence. Please do note the tags, which should serve as warnings in themselves, and please note that the subject matter may be upsetting for some. Gilly and I are lovers of twisted angst, and this fic is pretty much angst squared. Read, therefore, at your own risk!

TS: Ephemera
I am delighted to report that Panik and I have made the finishing touches to our story Decimated, and sent it out just now to the very patient people who donated to Moonridge for it, lo those many years ago.

Our buyers are getting an exclusive illustrated version; a printable e-zine, 97 pages long. I can give you a sneak peek at the cover, which is my own (rather basic) bit of the artwork:

 photo 9977d9f3-39b0-482b-ba92-d6c05e8741db_zps1d7988c2.jpg


Gilly has provided some absolutely perfect interior illustrations, as well as formatting which makes it an attractive document our buyers can print and bind, should they so wish.

Unfortunately, no doubt due to the length of time that has passed, we've not managed to reach by email three of our buyers. The names we have for them are Alberta, Linnea and Karen/Foresthawk. If anyone knows them, please pass along the message that the story is ready, and we'd love to get hold of their current contact details so we can send it to them.

After 30 of our earth days have passed, we shall upload the story to AO3, the timing of which will coincide rather neatly with the 10th anniversary of my first ever posted TS fanfic. What better way to commemorate my tenth anniversary than posting a new story written with one of my best friends in the world, who I met through the fandom? The fact that it is a collaboration I loved working on epitomises the wonderful time I've had, and the lovely friends I've made, during my ten years of writing TS fanfiction :-).

TS: Beautiful B&W Garett
 Decimated, the collaborative Moonridge story I've been writing with my good mate Gilly AKA Panik, is finished and has gone to be betaed. As soon as it comes back and we give it a final once-over, we will send it out to our very patient buyers.

I emailed all our buyers with an update yesterday, so if you think you should be on the list for this story but have not heard from us, please let me know. Just under half of our buyers have got back to us and confirmed their email addresses, but we haven't heard from the rest yet, so hopefully it's just that people haven't got round to it, and not that their emails are incorrect. Edited to add: If you are one of our recipients and have not yet confirmed that you received my email, it'd be great if you could drop me a line to say you've got it. This is so Gilly and I can be certain we've reached you and have your correct email address :-)

There is one person whose email bounced, and enquiries on TSStoryfinders and TS_News have not revealed her whereabouts. We only know her as 'Karen', with a defunct email address of foresthawk@comcast.net. If you are here, Karen, or if anyone knows her, please get in touch!
