Can't Believe The Trip's On Its Final Day...

Why do vacations always go so fast? :( The hotel has been completely awesome, both for the rest factor and the inspiration factor. We've worked on a ton of things and talked non-stop about various fics coming in the next six months. SO MANY IDEAS! I love breaks like this because the change of scenery and the long drive bring the Muse out of hiding in spades. Unfamiliar Part Two is currently up to 1,700 words if that gives you you any idea. Notes for Heirs have doubled,  Much plotting on our own personal side projects. There's been discussion of the projects that take place in the LS-verse after Heirs, which will likely never be written. There's even been writing added to Carry. Now we have to actually write up our 4th of July fic, especially since it's been plotted out entirely.

I wish we could stay a few more days. OMG, it's been so nice since we've been here. I think this is best I've felt since Asheville and that's saying something. *LOL* And if our work the last few days is any indication, I think the Clois enjoy life here at the Hyatt Regency just as much. I've already asked Anissa if maybe we can make my birthday trip two nights down here at Christmastime, when it's all done up for the season. It's too far to go to Asheville on a two- or three-day weekend.  Maybe we'll do Islands of Adventure this year.

I really hate to head back to reality, but checkout time is noon. Which explains why Little Miss Nocturnal is up at this hour. I wish there was some way we could have had all of you here with us, especially since it's in the Orlando International Airport. Every single time I've looked down at all of the people hurrying off to their destinations, I have to smile and think of you guys. Please God, let me have the chance to meet all of you in the next few years. You have no idea how much I want the chance to see you guys in person and hug you!

Okay, I still have some additions to make to the writing before Her Majesty wakes up and we have to get going. I love you guys and we'll report back from home in a few hours.

Because I'm Just A Huge Angelina Jolie Dork...

Welcome to the world, Knox Leon (I get the feeling Brad named the boy. *LOL*) and Vivienne Marcheline! And so many congrads to my favorite Momma-to-the world! These two have to be utterly beautiful because God knows the rest of the family is. 

*is very much considering stealing little Zahara for her own. OMG, that child is SO beautiful and boy, does she know it!  Momma is gonna have her hands full with that child!*

*blushes, feels like a dork* Okay, back to your morning. I just had to say it! 



And now my favorite multi-cultural family has a fifth and sixth addition! Maddox (you can only see the top of his head *snuggles*) little Shiloh (who looks just like Daddy, but with Mommy's lips), Zahara (look at that face! OMG, she's SOOO stolen!), and Pax (I don't know what's cuter: the look on his face or the stuffed penguin!)

I Discovered Something Today...

I'm not sure if the someone who wrote this is reading this, but I found a post today that really startled me. As I don't know who you are and you seem to be someone close to me (at least in the fandom), I want you to know that I don't hate you. Everyone in entitled to their own favorite version of events. That's why it's fanon. What I don't understand was why you kept reading and told me it was good when you didn't think it was. That's what hurts me. And that you disliked it so much that you couldn't tell me, you had to put it there. It was a great shock when I was reading through and found that post, especially since it was obvious who it was. I'm so sorry to have disappointed you so much. 

As to their being referred to as 'the twins' constantly, I have a set of younger twin sisters and that didn't become an issue with them until they hit the age of ten or so. And then it comes on hard-core. I'm basing the pair on personal experience. That's what a lot of their actions are based on, as well as several pairs I've known as I grew up. I also think that they show their own personalities enough that that doesn't change when I refer to them as a unit. Kala and Jason are twins also because they were written as such before SR was even in theaters. The first story I wrote with them predates the film by fifteen years. The main character that was changed to fit the fic was Jason. And as for the actual reason that their twins? I didn't want him to be alone, like his father was. He's going to have enough craziness in his life. Why shouldn't he have someone to share the journey?

Again, I'm not really angry about this, I'm more hurt. Please, know that I don't hate you, but please don't feel you need to lie to me about how you feel about the story. I'd rather know that it's not your cup of tea. And I wouldn't let you get flayed alive. That's not the kind of person I am and since you seem to know me pretty well, I'd like to think that you know that. Okay? And if anyone knows who they are, I don't want anything said to them. And I don't want anyone in the fandom striking out at them, either. I don't consider myself a BNF, which I didn't even understand the meaning of until a few months ago. I'm sorry that Kala was such a disappointment to you and that she seems to upset you to that level. More than that, I'm sorry that you had to buoy me up. 

And that goes for all of you. Don't feel that you need to pump me up on certain projects if you don't have an interest in them. It worries me to no end that I'm making a fool of myself with this fandom. Please, if you do love you, don't feel you have to lie to me to stay my friend. I'll love you regardless. And I won't turn anyone on you for feeling that way. What's the point? 

However, this does not mean that I plan to eliminate Kala from anything. She's an important character in this 'verse and there are enough people out there that love her that she will continue on. She's been in the plans since the beginning. Dear reader, I apologize, but I can't change all of it for that reason. I really hope you understand. I'll not fault you if you stop reading.

Please, guys, no wank in the comments. I'm trying really hard not to offend this person. You understand?
