Wow.  Hello again LJ, long time, no see.

I fear I sadly neglect my LJ in favour of Facebook these days. Which is sad, mostly because the kind of posts i used to put here on LJ I simply no longer seem to have time to write.

But! Onwards, and upwards!

'Tis the Season, and you know what that means - time for me to put out the call.

If you'd like a Christmas card all the way from Down Under, hit me up here with a comment including your name and address (comments will be screened for privacy).

And remember, these are no ordinary Christmas cards (or holiday cards, or Winterthing cards, if Christmas doesn't rock your boat) - these come with personalised touches that make me smile when I'm creating them!  (And may make your postal service delivery person raise an eyebrow, or perhaps even give a little chuckle - that's the other fun part!)

Let the good times roll!

So, there's a little more Diva-bashing, and oh yeah, "adult situations". Enjoy! ;-)

Kinda funny that I'm publishing this chapter today, on the day Trish Stratus, one of my all-time favourite Divas, gets inducted into the Hall of Fame because . . . you guessed it, this one's got some serious Diva-bashing happening.

What can I tell you - I'm a bitch! I should of course preface this chapter with that hoary (whore-y?) old chestnut about this being a work of fiction and any resemblance to actual persons being wholly accidental. Or maybe you'll buy "although inspired in part by a true incident, the story is fictional and does not depict any real person or event"? (Totally stole that one from Law and Order, yanno?)

But . . . yeah. It is what it is. Deal. Or don't, your choice. Just don't come at me later, bro, getting all up in my grill about it, you hear what I'm saying? ;-)

This chapter's a birthday present for
utssq - one of the first people I met in the wrestling fandom, back a whole bunch of years ago. Happy birthday, chica - here, have some 'Taker smut! ;-)

Where are you, Christmas?

I'm feeling a little bit like Cindy Lou Who at the moment.

For those of you who aren't part of bros_destruct - which is pretty much the only place I've been posting this year - there is a reason for this.

I lost my mum on 31 August this year.  And I won't lie - it's been really tough.  Some days I'm fine, and other days, the grief is just about unbearable.

Normally, Christmas is my favourite time of year.  I love it - I really do.  It's not about the gifts.  It's about decorating my house with my tons of tinsel, and how happy my cat is to have new tinsel to play in.  It's about sending Christmas cards to make my family and friends smile.

And for me, with my in-laws 12,000 miles away, and for my unmarried sister - Christmas was about mum.  About going up to her house, and taking over her kitchen so we could make a super-amazing Christmas lunch and spoil her with it.  And then getting to see the rest of the family when they came by.

This is the first one we'll have without mum.  We've been invited to share Christmas with other family, but we've decided this one, we need to be just by ourselves.  Because it is going to be tough for us in particular, not having mum here.

Now my mum wouldn't want me - any of her family - to be sad about Christmas.  She was not that kind of lady.  She was a cheeky old baggage, right to the end.  I'm working consciously on remembering that about her right now.

And I'm trying very hard to find my Christmas spirit.  When the grief gets a bit too much, I'll stop, take a deep breath, and as one of my dearest friends told me this week - I'll put on my sparkly Christmas earrings (yes, I've got lots of pairs of those!) and lean on the people who love me.

So, as part of my efforts to find Christmas, it's that time of year when I put the offer out there - if you'd like a Christmas card, all the way from down under, then leave a comment with your address on this entry.  And your name - unless your postie, or your family, will be un-phased by a Christmas card arriving addressed to your LJ username! 

For those of you who are new around here - this won't be any ordinary Christmas card.  I'm all about creativity, so you're going to get a lovingly personalised envelope.  Usually with a surprise!

Comments will be screened for privacy, of course.

A word of explanation on this chapter - first. There be more dragons here. You know what I'm talking about - we are now firmly in the "good bits" of this longer-than-fuckin'-forever story.

So if you're not down with that, I got two words for ya . . . oh wait, that doesn't happen for another few chapters yet! ;-)

The second part is that well, GMTA. See,
utssq and I are both writing and a while back, she posted a chapter with a somewhat similar sexual situation in it. And I was gutted, because I had the same thing planned. Well, almost the same thing.

However. I have decided that this really is a case of GMTA, and I'm ploughing on regardless. Besides, I'm not sure we have that much of a readership in common. Given my readership seems pretty small!

The newest chapter to Pros and Cons is finally done! And it's only taken me three years!! (Actually, I have been writing three stories at once, but still - three frickin' years? I'm going to have to live to be a hundred to finish all this stuff! ;-)

You'll find it posted here on my fiction website.

For those who are new here, here's the scoop:

Pros and Cons
Author: Nephthys
Features: Kane (Glenn Jacobs)
Rating: NC-17

It all started at a convention . . .

Author's note: It's my story, so I make the rules, LOL! No brand extension, my choice of superstars and all other bets (including pre-existing personal relationships) are off if I deem them to be so! And since I spent quite a while in the no-wrestling wilderness, I may ignore past storylines and events - including the unmasking and shaving of Kane, which I consider to be an act that "reeks of heinousity", to quote the once-lovely Edge. I also reserve the right to ignore current storylines - because I can, so there! I will also at random use both wrestlers' real names and "stage" names - mostly where I don't know real names.

Actually, since sometimes it does seem that some rampant insanity is at work in the WWE, it's probably best to consider most of my work as alternative universe fic! Keeping the good stuff and chucking away the crap, making the wrestling fan fic world a nicer place to be! However, this AU is so far running along the same general lines of the real WWE, around the time 'Taker was the American Bad Ass and prior to the unmasking of Kane.

This story started out as a one-shot deal, and I was writing it so my brain would cease writing it in my head when I was supposed to be doing other things! However, in that treacherous way my brain has, it would appear there is more to this story than first thought. Bugger! Guess who's got another work in progress, in progress?

This follows on immediately after the events in Part the Fifth - To where you are.

Usual disclaimer - own nothing but my original characters, all the other people own themselves, WWE owns the trademark names, I'm doing this to exercise my creativity and for the sheer pleasure of writing. Ask my therapist!

And of course, the obligatory attention whoring request for feedback - I don't promise to change the story if you don't like it, and I never ask what my characters should do next, because I already know what's going to happen. But it is nice to know if you're enjoying what you read!

Okay, this is your one and only warning - this is the start of the good stuff. Yep, that's right, here be dragons! Or, at least, explicit sexual situations. So click the cut at your own peril!

Now that's out of the way, let's hear a fanfare for 'Taker finally getting laid in this one! ;-)
