The fabulous [personal profile] noblealice has outdone herself again, and wrote me (!!!! I'm so spoiled) another birthday fic this year. Trust me when I say this had me swooning in delight.

Title: never go to bed angry
Pairing: clint barton/natasha romanov; the avengers
Rating: r
wordcount: 2,000+

“Y’know Tasha, my mama had this rule ‘bout going to bed angry. Said it wasn’t healthy.”

Her hair had grown in some, long enough that he had to brush it to the side over her shoulder, leaving more skin for his hands to explore. “And I’m picking up some traces of anger here.”

He made a fist with one hand and kneaded a line down between her shoulder blades with his knuckles and her head tilted slightly forward, giving him the signal he needed to continue.

He began running his palms down her arms, expelling more tension with each pass, “Got me to wondering, if that’s how she felt about sleep, you can imagine how she’d feel about starting a highly dangerous mission when wanting to kill your partner.”

“That’s a bit extreme, Barton.” She twisted her chin to the side so he could see the beginnings of a smirk. “I don’t want to kill you. Perhaps maim you.”

I love a before and after, don't you?



And then...



You can't imagine how happy it makes me to have my books back. (Although you are all nerds so maybe you can.) It just makes this place seem more homey and complete. And it also makes me notice how much room I still have and how I should probably go out and get some more books. ;D

ANYWAY, book nerdery aside, I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. Bike ride in the morning, beautifully sunny day with friends at the pride parade downtown, and then a delicious dinner with my family at the waterfront, topped off with (albeit, kind of distant) fireworks. The "oh god, I'm 25 now what am I doing with my life?" feeling will still take a bit of getting used to, but hey. I'm also the imminent first-time owner of an iPhone, so I absolutely can't WAIT to join in the instagram-y hipster-filter fun. Does anyone have any favourite app recommendations?

So this is already shaping up to be an awesome birthday, and it's not even my birthday yet. :D The marvellous [livejournal.com profile] noblealice wrote me an alt!world Fringe fic and you should all go read it. Do you like Altlivia? (The correct answer is yes) Do you love Lincoln Lee and his stupid face? (Of course you do) Are you hankering to see what the other side might look like after "The Day We Died"? Go read this fic!

Title: It's Just Spilled Milk
Author: [livejournal.com profile] noblealice
Characters: Alt-Olivia, Lincoln Lee
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Post-"The Day We Died"
Summary: Olivia struggles to figure out what has changed in her world.

But first she had to do something, feed someone. She had responsibilities now that came before her own comfort. Except...her mother was safe at home and she wasn’t watching Mrs. Steinburg‘s cat this week. She hadn’t had anyone to share a meal with since Frank.

She was still puzzling over this urge when Lincoln walked up to them, huge grin on his face and arms open wide. “Never fear, your supreme commander is here.”

"Nice of you to finally grace us with your presence.” Charlie drawled out, legs propped up on his desk.

"Hey, I rushed over as soon as I got the call.” Lincoln took a lazy swipe at the feet, knocking them back to the floor. Charlie merely sent him a Cheshire cat grin that promised retribution would be coming.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna!

HAPPY CANADA DAY, CANADA!


AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY ME!


Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes already--you guys sure don't waste any time. AND I LOVE YOU FOR IT.

*FLIST!GLOMP*

I've got a pretty busy day ahead, and hopefully I'll get to tell all about it when it's through. And hopefully I won't collapse in a big coughy heap by the end of it-NO, I FEEL BETTER. *RESOLVE FACE*

Anyway, thank you again! FIREWORKS AND BIRTHDAY CAKE FOR EVERYONE!
hjea: (misc-maple leaf)
Well first off, Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] ninamazing! I hope you have a fabulous day, darling! (And ooh - if you see Passchendaele you'll have to tell me what you think.) *EPIC!BIRTHDAY GLOMPS*

Yesterday I was telling a friend that I've never been to a Remembrance Day ceremony because I always seem to end up being sick on November 11th. But yesterday I was feeling fine, and was really looking forward to going downtown to the cenotaph to watch the ceremony there. So of course today I woke up and cut for TMI about girly problems )

I watched the ceremony in Ottawa on the tv, as I always do, but it's a good one, so I can't really mind. I like the laying of the wreaths the most. It's always so interesting to see how many different countries and organizations are represented in Ottawa alone, and how diverse the sweep of people affected by war are. But the silver cross mother seems younger every year, and it's heartbreaking.

I'm feeling a lot better now, if completely wrung out. So I think I'll take a nap, and then try to finally get some work done. What a day.
hjea: (misc-maple leaf)
Come celebrate Canada's 141th anniversary of Confederation - wherever you are! It's a good time. :D

So first off, Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] inara223! I hope you're having as good a day as I am. And thank you to EVERYBODY who has sent me birthday wishes today. You're all fabulous, and making me all misty-eyed. <333

I've been out of the house and on the move since 10:00 this morning, and have got about an hour before I'm going out again to watch the fireworks downtown. I'll probably go into more detail and throw pictures at you later, but Halifax is a pretty awesome place to celebrate Canada Day - there's been SO much to do today! And thanks to my birthday karma, the sun has been out and beautiful all day, despite lots of warnings to the contrary. So those living in the HRM - you're welcome. ;)

Anyways, I think I might do something radical now like, sit down for ten minutes, or take a shower, but thank you again, everybody! It's really been a great day so far.
hjea: (dw-huggy hugs)
Things that are making me excited:

I think Doctor Who is always a little more manageable after you've had a night to process. Yep. Feeling pretty good and optimistic now. And still revving for next saturday. ;)

Anywho, check out this lovely pic: Spoilers for Confidential - 4x12 & casting for 4x13 )

And randomly, have some proof that Eve Myles may be the cutest thing in the world )

Wow, my birthday's in two days! That's a bit crazy - though less stressful, somehow, than the big 20 last year. And of course, the fireworks are always a treat. ;D
hjea: (robin hood-marian)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] ninamazing! Whoo and hoo for those specific 20-turning friends who will squee and write FANTASTIC fic about Pushing Daisies (which is, if you hadn't got it already, the BEST NEW SHOW!!) and Robin Hood and Doctor Who and besides that, for being just a generally awesome person. Hope you have a great day, dahlink!

It's funny, because I tend to refer to this week as the birthday week, as I can think of a fair number of people I know (the sister included) who celebrate birthdays around this time. (It makes sense if you think which Hallmark holiday comes nine-months before. Heh. Sorry, birthdayees.) So yay for all of you! I give you snow and sunshine. Makes a pretty mix. :D

Also, I wanna talk briefly about Robin Hood because my torrent did finally d-load and it was exciting and made my heart race and, you know, Robin was in it, so... )

AGAIN, [livejournal.com profile] ninamazing, THIS IS YOUR DAY! HAVE A GREAT ONE!
hjea: (dw-giggly rose)
On friday I received the BEST BIRTHDAY CARD EVER in the mail. It was sent to me by my beloved, the marvelously fantastic [livejournal.com profile] janie_jones_ (who just got back from London - hint, hint), and after a weekend of keeping it to myself (because it's AWESOME) I finally thought it time to share it with the world.

So click here )

Now, aren't you all jealous? ;)
hjea: (firefly-kaylee + strawberry OTP)
It's my birthday a week tomorrow. Aiee! And I'll be turning... twenty. *gulps* I'll no longer be a teenager, I'll be some kind of... adult-like person. Granted, most of my friends are twenty already, and it doesn't seem like it's a big deal to them, but... it's a bit scary.

So, to distract myself, I thought I'd make a list of things I want. 'Cause I'm greedy that way. ;)

1) I was going to say more icons, but the fantabulously awesome [livejournal.com profile] browncoat_2x2 was so kind as to transfer her paid account and extra icon space to ME after she got herself a permanent account! Ack, it's sooooooo great! I feel very lucky. *huggles teh 2x2* And now I've got something like 31 icons and room for more and it's all very exciting, and my birthday feels complete already. :D

2) A printer. Well, my grandparents already sent me the money for said printer, now I just have to get off my bum, go to Staples and actually purchase it. But... uh... it's raining. So I'll get it later. It remains on the list.

3) More Robin Hood episodes. It's cheesy BBC nonsense, but it's so lovably AWESOME BBC nonsense and I want more episodes now. I'm sure if the Beeb knew it was my birthday, they wouldn't make me wait until november, right?

4) Along that line, I also want more BSG eps in oh... say... 2007 as opposed to '08. (Pegasus mini series does not count.) Mostly I just want to know what the eff is going on. Because that clifffhanger was INSANE!

5) I want Rose back on DW. Oh, and I'd like Martha to not die a horrible death or anything, but just to go back to medical school and stop mooning over the Doctor. And I'd like more Sparrow and Nightingale. Actually, I have a whole host of requests for RTD, so maybe I'll just send those direct. ;)

6) Better job than working at Canadian Tire. I mean, everyone's really nice for the most part but it's really not the most stimulating of environments. Preferably, I'd like to work in the British Museum, but I'd take something closer to Halifax if neccessary.

7) I NEED to travel. Anywhere really.

8) Fic! Fic of my choosing! Okay, I still need to finish reading all the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] sonic_tea entries, but I'd still like fic! (Told you I was greedy) Drabbles would do very nicely. Firefly, Farscape, Doctor Who, Robin Hood, The Office, BSG, anything really! Ficcy, fic, fic!

9) Pretty dresses. And shoes. And jewelery. And hair. And anything that falls into the 'far too girly for lj' category. *g*

10) And finally... uh... world peace. No, seriously -- it'd be nice.

Ooh - it's also worth mentioning that my birthday (July 1st) is also Canada's 140th anniversary of Confederation. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Canadians, I expect you shall be celebrating. *firm nod* Everyone else, you can celebrate too if you want. Have some fireworks. *offers*

Well, that's about it! Maybe if I get everything I want, I'll be distraced and won't have to dwell on the fact that my age will no longer have a '1' in it. That's my hope anyway. *G*

P.S. Forgot to say, in a moment of EXTRA-nerdlyness, I rented three BBC costume dramas from the Video Store the other day: Victoria and Albert, Daniel Deronda and North and South. They're all wonderful and romantic so far, and have stunning Victorian costumes. I love the BBC SO MUCH! Mimi, be jealous.

P.P.S. 11) Sunlight. Just a little. C'mon weather!
