I’ve Got Your Fix!

 

 

What do you guys think of my new theme song? Kind of perfect, right? You can all thank Chris Lane for recording it. That song is absolutely addicting…

Okay, I’ve got a few things to say today. For all of my amazing True Blood fans, I know you’re jonesing for a TPMK fix, but I still haven’t been able to scrape together the funds to get my notebook looked at. I’m hoping to take care of that soon. Actually, that’s something I wanted to talk to you all about.

Chances are, if you guys read my A/Ns, then you already know I have a whole heap of medical problems. In fact, last time I updated To Protect My Kin, I just had a procedure done on one of my legs. I hate it when authors just disappear and leave their stories unfinished, so I feel incredibly guilty for going MIA on you all like I did, but 2016 was just not my year. I literally had a medical procedure every single month last year and I was just too damned tired to write. Now that I’m finally getting back into the swing of things, I would love nothing more than to finish my TB story. Unfortunately, the notebook I was writing it all on and have all of my ideas saved to is still broken and I don’t have the funds to fix it.

Since I’m in the process of trying to get disability, it doesn’t seem likely that I’ll be able to scrape those funds together anytime soon. At the beginning of every year, the costs of my medications go up and every dime I have has gone to medical expenses.

It’s insane, actually. It’s at times like these that I get so angry at pharmaceutical companies, who charge thousands of dollars for their products. After I hit the $3k mark on out-of-pocket expenses, things should be more manageable. But for now? I’m really struggling with everything financially. That’s hard for me to admit, but it’s also true. I don’t see that notebook getting fixed without a little help.

That said, I was actually talking to my mom (that sounds so weird, but she’s my bestie) the other day about whether or not I should set up a donation link. Later that same day, one of my readers over on FFn left a review telling me to go set up a Fundme page and she’d make a donation.

I’ve taken that odd coincidence as a sign.

I talked to KittyinAZ about her PayPal donation link and 4padfoot helped me set up one of my own. If you’re willing to donate, you can find it on the sidebar of my homepage. If you’re like me and read everything on your phone, scroll down past the comments section and you’ll find an area that says, “Donations Welcome.”

I love the fact that fanfiction is free, I truly do, and I’m not charging anyone for the opportunity to read one of my stories. Donating is completely voluntary and you will not offend me if you choose not to. It’s up to you. I would, however, be extremely grateful to any of you who are willing to donate.

As hilarious as it would be to picture me saying this while I evilly twirl a mustache, I’m not holding my future chapters ransom (lol, can you imagine that?), it’s just an unfortunate fact of life that I won’t be able to post more of TPMK until I can get my notebook fixed. It’s been so long since I’ve updated it that I can’t remember what all of my plans were for the plot. I need access to my notes in order to keep writing it.

Saving it all to the notebook and nothing else was definitely not my smartest move.

What can I say? Hindsight’s always 20/20.

Finally, now that that’s taken care of, “Chapter Nine: Guardian” of Stepping Out of the Shadows, my Twilight/Avengers crossover, has been uploaded to WordPress, thanks to 4padfoot. It’s also up on Fanfiction.net and Stars Library (TWCS). Click on the link below to be taken to the chapter.

4padfoot has been hard at work this weekend, adding all the pretties, and the amazing KittyinAZ created a banner for it, so check it out when you get the chance.

There were a couple of glitches with the chapter links on the story page, so if any of you started reading SOotS from Chapter One, you might want to go back and check out the Prologue. The amazing 4padfoot has already fixed the links, so everything should be fine now. I would’ve fixed it myself, but then the links would probably end up taking you somewhere different altogether, like a random video about a cat facing off against an alligator over a pile of frozen chicken. I swear I’m not joking; my tech skills are really that awful. It’s a little frightening, actually.

In case you’re wondering… yes, that video does exist.

The cat won.

New Stories from TBVA

Hello my beloved WP followers!

I meant to get this all up on WP about a week ago, but I suck at all things tech oriented, so you guys are honestly lucky it’s even up here at all. In fact, it wouldn’t be if it weren’t for 4padfoot, who is amazing. I’m so grateful for her and I would completely flounder on here without her.

I bribed you guys with an update and today I give you… five! Unfortunately, none of those five are for TPMK and I’m so sorry about that, but I still can’t afford to go get my notebook fixed and its got all my chapter outlines, etc., on it. I feel absolutely horrible about that, especially since I haven’t updated in about a year on it. I’m so sorry, but maybe I can make it up to you. I’ve been up to all sorts of mischief on my phone (I had to keep myself entertained) and I’ve finally started posting. The lovely 4padfoot has uploaded my newest stories and I’m hoping you guys might enjoy one of them.

No, they are not TB stories, unfortunately, but they do involve vampires. They’re just those ridiculous sparkly vampires instead. I’ve posted a Twilight one shot with a Jasper/Bella pairing and a Twilight/Avengers crossover with a Bella/Hawkeye pairing. I’ve been experimenting a little with my writing style, but I think they’re pretty good and their doing really well over on FFn. Check them out. The links are below:

Choices and Consequences

What if Bella had reacted differently after she saved Edward in Italy? Abandoned by the family, Bella slowly grew stronger in their absence and, even though she loves them all, Bella decides to hold the family responsible for their actions when she returns from Italy. Bella teaches them all that their choices have real consequences, ones that just might change everything… JxB O/S

Stepping Out of the Shadows

https://tbvikingaddict.wordpress.com/stepping-out-of-the-shadows/

Bella Swan is living a shadow of a life. On the run from a bloodthirsty nomad craving revenge, she begins to see vampires differently, through the eyes of their prey. After a chance encounter with Hawkeye, her world collides with the shadowy world of SHIELD. She’s faced with a difficult choice, keep the vampire secret or step out of the shadows with Clint to help SHIELD fight Loki.

Coming soon to computers near you…

I’m posting! I’m posting! …but I’m not updating and I am well aware how awful that makes me. I mean, I totally bribed you guys to vote for me for The New Kid on the Block award for Best New Author and I didn’t pay up. Honestly, who does that?!

*Face palming*

Apparently, I do… but I have every intention of making it up to you. I really, really do.

Here’s the deal. The Notebook I’ve been using to write To Protect My Kin is having technical issues and I don’t have the funds at the moment to hire someone smarter than me to fix it. I’m technologically challenged and I’ve never hid that fact, so I am sorry, but you guys are just going to have to wait a little longer. Basically, it came down to a choice between getting a new phone or taking in the Notebook. Since I’m literally writing this on a cell with a shattered screen, the new phone won out. I know, I really should’ve been backing my story up on a USB, but you know what they say about hindsight.

So… what’s coming to computers near you in the not so distant future then, you ask? Why, I’ll tell you! Since my Notebook is out of commission, I’ve been up to no good on my phone. I’ve started a few stories on it and have a couple good ones in the works. I am a firm believer I shouldn’t start a new story until I’ve finished the one I’m working on, but since TPMK has been temporarily benched, I had to entertain myself in other ways.

If you didn’t know by now, I write purely for my own amusement. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE when you all read and review my stories, but I write to entertain myself. That’s why I’m so awesome.

Okay, so what’s coming? Believe it or not, I’ve been experimenting with crossovers. I’m branching out! YAY! Right now, I’m fine-tuning the first few chapters of a Twilight/Avengers fic with a Bella/Hawkeye pairing. The lovely KittyInAZ has read some of it and said she liked it, which means some of you just might. *Crossing fingers* I guess we’ll see… Expect the first couple of chapters of that sometime soon.

I owe you an update and I pay my debts. It’s just not a TPMK update.

I know, you totally want to stake me right now.

I deserve it.

What else have I been up to? I’ve also started two Twilight Bella/Jasper fics, a Supernatural/Twilight crossover, and a Twilight/Covenant crossover. I have absolutely no idea when I’ll start posting those, but they’re coming.

I know what you’re thinking. Why have I suddenly started all these Twilight fics?!

I have no freaking clue, but they’re entertaining the hell out of me.

 

Until next time, my amazing followers,

TBVA

You Want Blood Awards

Okay Eric and Godric brought a typo to my attention.  Originally I posted that the final round would end on 10/22/2016 with the Final results being posted on Halloween giving me time to make everyone’s banners.  Then when I opened the final round for voting I accidentally used the 17th as the date for ending final voting.  So our favorite vampires have brought it to my attention and I have extended the date of the final round to the original date of 10/22/2016!

SO what does this mean for everyone?  Go VOTE!  You get extra time!

I have to go finish writing my punishment lines that I have been given!    I will not do that again…I will not do that again…

Thanks everyone for understanding!

You Want Blood Awards

Hello, my lovely little readers. Just dropping in to tell you all I’M ALIVE and I will be returning soon. I actually planned to post Chapt. 40 last week, but I started struggling. I’m still recuperating from my last procedure and I think my body’s just abnormally tired, so the process has been slower this time around. I know I haven’t updated in MONTHS and I truly feel awful about that, but I’ve pretty much had a medical procedure nearly every month since I last posted. Sadly, having surgery and a few weeks of recovery before having surgery again became somewhat of a routine for me during the last 8 months or so. I just wanted you all to know that I do still plan to finish this and will, hopefully, have a new chapter out by the end of next week. *crossing fingers*

On another note, today (Aug. 31)  is the last day 4padfoot will be accepting nominations for the You Want Blood Awards. Mosey on over there and nominate your favorite stories and writers… Please?

Find the nomination form online at youwantbloodawards.wordpress.com.

See you all soon!

Chapter 39 is up!!

Hey, hey readers!

I wasn’t going to post this until after my legs felt a bit better (I had two procedures in the last week and a half), but I’m in a celebratory mood. My birthday was earlier this week and I thought I’d gift you all an update! Don’t be like Canon Sookie and refuse my gift. It’ll make me drop fang and hiss.

This chapter is a wee bit shorter than the last two. In fact, it’s normal-sized! Don’t worry though- I’m sure you’ll get another Viking-sized chapter soon.

In this chapter our favorite vampires are about to move the pieces around in our chess game. They’ll be working through Sookie’s little epiphany and figuring out their next move. Next chapter Bon Temps gets a look at Faepire Sookie out in public. About time, right? And, finally, the members of the Authority have returned. Apparently Nora talked them into coming back.

I’m still not sure if that’s a good thing.

They’re feeding right now (remember when I said I’d have to bribe them?), so they won’t be making an appearance for a couple chapters. But, honestly, who wants them around when we’re opening gifts anyway?!

Disclaimer: I do not own True Blood or Southern Vampire Mysteries. Charlaine Harris, Alan Ball, and HBO do. Yet, that didn’t stop me from wishing I did when I blew out my candles.

Well hellooo, beautiful readers!

Well hellooo, beautiful reader! I’m so excited. I pretty much got this chapter out on time and it has me doing a victory dance on the inside. Touchdown, TB Viking Addict!

SCORE!

Okay, seriously, I want to thank everyone for their well wishes and condolences. I am extremely grateful to have such wonderful people reading my story and I want you all to know that you are all appreciated. Apparently, I now need two procedures and the first is scheduled for Nov. 11th- just a warning so you guys know I may slow down again this month. You all are so amazing for sticking with this story even when I pop in and out like Fairy Sookie on V.

Which reminds me, when did I get so many readers? I think I let out a squeal louder than the little piggy who went to the market when I realized, between the two websites, there are like 700 of you following me. That’s a huge change from when I celebrated at 100. Can I just say… THANK YOU?!

I hope you all enjoyed purebred fairy Sookie last chapter. She’s a rare treat. She’s been itching to pop out for the last few chapters and nearly made an appearance in “My Fairy Nature.” If there’s a purely vampire side to our Faepire Sookie though, then there must be a purely fairy side as well.

I’m all about the balance of nature.

This chapter is another long one and a lot happens in it, but I think you’ll enjoy it. Let me just say sorry in advance for the ending. Please don’t stake me! If you can tell from the title, this chapter is about battling fears. *snickers* So it seemed like a fitting place to end it. I’ve already started the beginning of the next chapter though, so hopefully I don’t leave you hanging from the cliff for very long.

Even though it’s about fears, it’s another one of those chapters where I just cracked myself up. Maybe it’s the sugar rush from Halloween or the fact that I haven’t slept in a couple nights, but I found it so funny I think I bled a tear…

By the way, I set up an iron trap for my muse, leaving a picture of ASkars in the middle of it and then BAM! Got my outline back.

Who’s the sneaky bitch now?

Chapter 38

Oh my stars… she posted!

How many of you thought I did exactly what I said I wouldn’t and just up and disappeared? Well, SURPRISE! I didn’t.

I did disappear without a word for over a month though. *Hangs head in shame*

I promise though, it was for two very good reasons. The first was a medical issue. The veins in my legs started swelling again, so I went to a cardiologist. It turns out the valves in my legs stopped working correctly and let me tell you… it freaking hurts like a bitch when your blood moves in both directions inside the same vein. I’m going to have to have a medical procedure to seal the blasted things shut- which I tell you to warn you. It may take a while to get out another post. I just can’t focus with it on top of my other pain problems. I do try though.

The second reason has to do with a very different type of pain- my grandpa passed away. This chapter is dedicated to him because he always believed in me, confident I’d be a best-selling author one day. When I told him I’d started writing this fanfic, he encouraged me, excited I was writing again even if it was a story based on someone else’s. I will always love him for how much faith he had in me. This one’s for you, G-pa!

So the good news? This chapter ran away with me and turned into a long-ass one.

And I do mean long. Longer than the last one, which, by the way, if some of you are wondering about the pink lycra suit Sookie found, the Viking wore it in SVM when he escorted Sookie to an orgy. Apparently Pam picked it out. I know, whaaat? And they didn’t put it in TB? Shame on them.

Actually, it’s probably the length of two rolled into one. BONUS! Right? Keep an eye out for the POVs, I do go back and forth in this one.

Anyway… I had a chapter all outlined, just waiting to be written, and then my muse popped up, snatched away the outline, and ran off with it. I still can’t find where that sneaky bitch hid it.

I thought the Authority would be making an appearance, but the chapter took an emotional turn and the stoic vampires fled. They may not show up for one or two more chapters. Apparently I’m going to have to bribe them with blood donors to get them to return.

Maybe by then my muse will get her ass back here with that outline?

Somehow, I doubt it.

Chapter 37!!
