I emerge from thesis land because...well, because I'm not currently writing anything. Today's wordcount is over a 1000, though, so I haven't been a total louse.

I miss iconing, and I need to find some way of getting back some inspiration. Therefore, I found a LIMS to sign up for:


So there you go.

Also, don't forget that supes_mv_awards end this weekend!

Dear Yuletide Author

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for writing my story! I hope the story intended for you has found you and you like it as well. You stuck to my request and gave a fun very in character story. I chose the Mummy as one of my requests not expecting for that one to get matched up, and I'm glad it was :) The travel from Cairo to London is especially fantastic, haha.

Thanks for your effort. It was a fun read. Have a great holiday

Somewhere in Time

Well, januaried gave me an opinion at any rate, ha.

But here it is, my completed Reeveverse piece. And now we see how long it stays up. I am in the process of putting all my others up on MegaUpload for those who never got to see them, or miss watching them. Give me time.

Also, I'm irritated that I can't get my masking to work so that it's widescreen, but it's in very nice HQ so that's a plus, yeah?

I know better than to look at this stuff when I'm already in a bad mood (I promise, it wasn't the disorders).

So I was looking at facebook and one of my friends birthday wall posts from a couple of days ago. From a "friend" of ours (who I will be calling R), this showed up:

A----!!! Hey, happy birthday! Do you remember that birthday ages ago when K---- and I dressed up and kidnapped you and threw you a surprise party, but J---- ruined the surprise cause when we got you, he was like "hi P----!", yeah, good times!!! Haha, that was so much fun!!! I love ya and hope you have a fantastic day!!!

Yeah, okay, that's cute, fun little memory, blah blah blah.

The story as Ashley remembers it:
- The Sunday before, K walks up to me and says "Hey, we're throwing A a surprise party on Saturday. Meet out at R's house at [whatever time it was] and we'll go get her."
- 11-year-old Ashley thinks "Oh boy! I'm getting included for once!" so I said I'll be there.
- The week went on and I was excited, blah blah blah.
- Saturday, I get over to R's house a couple of minutes EARLY to see their BMW (Big Mormon Wagon) pulling out of the drive. R rolled her eyes from the front seat and looked back at K in the back.
- I climbed out of the car and walked up tot he back passenger door.

Me: Hey, weren't you gonna wait for me? I'm here on time.
R&K: *silence*
R's dad: Hop in, Ashley. We'll see what we can do about finding stuff for you dress up in to be a ninja spy.
Me: Okay!
K: We don't have any more. R and I used them all.
R: Yeah.
Me: Well, can I have a bandanna?
K: It doesn't matter! She'll still recognize you! You have to stay in the car, and BE QUIET! We're gonna be so angry if you ruin this!
Me: *climbs to the back of the van (which was a long way back; 15 seater), folds her arms, and doesn't talk on the way over*

- The kidnapping goes as planned, minus J's outburst.
- I'm still sulking in the back.
- R pulls A's blindfold off and she laughs, haha, funny joke, nice one, guys, goes to climb out of the car and spots me.

A: Ashley, I didn't know you were here, too!
Me: *shrugs*
A: Why didn't you dress up and kidnap me, too?
Me: *climbs out of the van* Because they told me to be here at [whatever time it was] and I was here early and they were already leaving; I'm assuming I was invited to the party but not to the kidnapping.
K&R: *don't argue*
A: Oh. *goes inside like nothing*

Later K's mom was talking to me about this incident, maybe that next Sunday, and she told me that it was a matter of they planned the party and they were entitled to do the kidnapping. Since I had no love for K's mom anyway, I snapped back with something like they ALWAYS leave me out and they COULD have included me in the planning and I would've been happier had I not had an invite at all than to have them disgusted that I'd made it there early.

But what can I say? This is the same group of friends that senior year I decided to give them an opportunity to throw me a surprise party since I'd always just planned my parties a month or so in advance by default. So I stayed quiet, didn't mention my birthday, there were whispers going on, I was hopeful that I was in fact getting a surprise party and they, hey, they did care enough about me to throw one, and then a week before my birthday I was bombarded by "Ashley, aren't you having a party? When's the party?" After I drug out of them that they were planning a party and then forgot how close my birthday was and "didn't know who to invite anyway" they scratched the idea, I informed them I wasn't having a party because it's not like they cared enough anyway. Again, no argument.

I had awesome friends growing up. And I'm so glad that now that we're adults, R no longer even remembers my presence at that party! Forget that Ashley went and kidnapped, too, it was K and I!

I need to leave my bedroom. My mood is not improving.

I promise, I'm not grumpy that I'm not seeing Star Trek tonight. Well, I am, but that's not causing the mood.

[fic] Bluretto Flashes (1/?)

Title: Bluretto Flashes
Author: Ashley starrylites
Rating: PG-13 for groping
Category: AU Smallville
Characters: Red Blue Blur and Stiletto
Word Count: ~600
Spoilers: Stiletto obviously ;)
Disclaimer: Red Blue Blur and Stiletto are creations of Smallville, which I am not affiliated with.
Summary: During last week's episode, I was thoroughly amused by the sudden influx of "Bluretto" shippers on the internet. This is going to be a series of flash fictions (never anymore than 1000 words each) and not necessarily connected to each other. It is up to you to decide if it's an AU Smallville world where these really happen, or if I'm just a silly Bluretto shipper that Chloe found on a message board :)

Lois Fanvid - "I Stand"

I deviated from my norm, everyone. Well, not very far since it is still Superman. However, it is a crossover, so we've got clips from Lois & Clark, Smallville, STM, Superman II, The Donner Cut, SR, and Superman: Doomsday. Phew!

But it was fun. And it's always fun to try and get into Lois' head, and it's even better that her head works the same way in every incarnation.

P.S. No, none of my videos go up on YouTube anymore. My YouTube account is now completely personal because I was tired of audio and/or video disappearing.

The Clana Resolution Pool

I'm not a betting person, however...

Word on the street is the February 5th airing of Smallville is the final appearance of Lana in the show. That also means the relationship with Clark and Lana has to come to a close in some shape or form. This pool is all about the means to the end.

We do not discriminate against ships. Lois/Clark, Clark/Chloe, Lois/Ollie, Ollie/Tess, even Clark/ are more than welcome to throw in your vote.

Don't worry, you can give the same answer as someone else; we will not force you to give a different answer.

The stakes: your pride in the fandom
The winnings: the pride of getting it right, and probably a nifty banner

But, first, my project while I waited for the Staples guys to deliver my desk. I finished a video for like the first time in two years!

So be nice...this is my first Smallville video, so I'd appreciate you being nice to me...and hopefully Warner doesn't take this one down; three of my vids have been removed in the last couple of weeks :(

P.S. I love the screencap they chose, haha.
