First off, I wish to thank those of you who commented on my last post. Depression is not to be taken lightly. Not to be a joke. It literally turns your body and mind against you to where you feel there is nothing good left. While I am saddened by others having this, at the same time I comforted by the thought there are others who really understand it.
Now, I have some chapters of Tea Shoppe, both the Alice and the Twilighted version. For those that are wondering, Peter is Hatter. I have had this question pop up a couple times, but I figured I would answer it. Yes, in my fic, Peter is British. Why? Because I wanted to see how this story worked if it was published in the Twilight world. I was originally going to see about publishing it, but I don’t know if anyone would be interested, and frankly, I don’t write like this anymore.
So I hope this helps distract everyone from the stress of yesterday. Myself? I am hoping my computer allows me to continue to work, it likes to turn off the Wifi adapter, and sometimes acts too stupid to fix it. I hate restarting the dang thing since it sometimes thinks that I have too many hard drives and that it cannot find one of them. I only have one, but yeah… Makes me frightened to turn off the stupid thing. The only happy thing is that I have everything backed up on a cloud, as well as here.
Also, Thanks to 4Padfoot, Tea Shoppe (the original one in Alice) now has a character page with stats and so on. You can find it here:
(Yes, I stole the banner from Dying)
In Addition, we added an Affiliate Sites button to the side for those who host their own sites that we know, or who are actually affiliated with this site. Click it to find out what we have!!!!
I have been overhauling the Kittyinaz’s Food Blog. It has a new menu system, and I am working to add all the recipes we have collected to it. It looks completely new, and I am very impressed with how it is turning out. I never expected it to ever have as many recipes as it does, as well as being a go to. I am hoping to get it all sorted out for the holidays for you to use. I am working on the desserts, and boy, are there tons of them!!! The menu is set up like a food menu at a restaurant, to make it easier to find things. And of course, the search field is at the bottom of the page in case you want to use that instead. I am working to change the fonts from Yellow that was easier to read on the old theme to black on this one, but if you have any issues, message me and I will go in to switch the recipe for you earlier.
The Christmas contest is live!!! I am looking forward to the entries!!!
The Amazon link is also here. The link is: http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&tag=kittyinaz-20 The kittyinaz-20 at the end should be in the address field when you pull up Amazon. After that, anything you do will give credit, even if you don’t buy. It might make it where the next person comes in and looks and buys the item.
I will be doing a page for you guys to see what all is going on with the monies we get from donations and the Amazon referrals.
Yes, you heard correctly, it is time for some Tea Shoppe!
I have an update to both the Twilighted and the original. I know, I know. I’m behind on updating, but I had what was trying to be a migraine after I posted on Tuesday. I should be having one soon, since we are getting a cold front pushing through, and I am extremely sensitive to barometric pressure changes.
Plus, tomorrow is grandma day and is supposed to be BEAUTIFUL. I love cold fronts, they wipe away the humidity and give us cooler weather. It looks like we will have both Friday and Saturday of pretty weather, so who knows what will happen those days.
For what has been going on, not much. Right now I am surrounded by pets, especially a Connor who is thrilled with Mom being up and in the office. I am going to try to write or edit something. We will see, since I am also trying to work around the possibility of a storm. I even threw my sheets and stuff in the wash early so I can hopefully get them done ahead of time.
So if I don’t talk to you before Sunday, have a great weekend.
And in case you might have forgotten these are all the chapters updated so far this week:
We might be getting to the end of these. Might. I think there might be a couple of Crossovers, but I will let you know when we are done. Hopefully, you are able to find a chapter to read somewhere in this!
Yes, we are still planning to redo the site, but I spent all day first doing my nominations, then working on moving everything to the sites. I started having technical difficulties, but I will have A03 & Fanfiction Affliction updated tomorrow hopefully. I’m finishing up the Better In Texas one right now… I needed to watch the Slide show to make sure I have all the updates.
They will be updated weekly, so I can make the banners without stressing myself out like I was just doing.
This is it, folks. You have 9 hours to get those entries in unless you have talked to me about an extension. And you still even have time to contact me about them! And don’t forget to pick up your Participation Banner!!! It’s in the page, that is linked to the above banner.
Also… Once those entries are in, you have limited time on the site…
See we are doing what I suggested before… We are moving hosts. We had Blue Host but got insider information, so our wonderful Robin aka 4Padfoot went out and has snagged us a shiny new host. I am going to make sure all the other sites are updated to not make it where you have any interruptions in reading. I am on: Better In Texas, FictionPad, A03, TWCS, Fanfiction Affliction and Fanfiction (but not really). My name is the same on every site.
What does this mean? This means Thursday night, the site will go down as we move the site over to the new host. I say we, but it is really Robin who will be doing it. I will assist her in any way I can, but there is not much on my end. I am the writer, banner making sometimes and someone who is working her way through how to do things on the site. Heck, I am happy how to figure out how to add things to the site, though Robin has to go behind me and make sure everything is ok.
She is awesome!
GET YOUR NOMINATIONS IN!!!!!
I admit, time slipped through my hands, so the next thing I am doing after hitting publish is going to put in my nominations! Are you going to join me?
Also, there is the new contest. I am excited about this, the possibilities are endless. A crossover is your only restriction. And then I gave you some hints courtesy of BuzzFeed. I would love to drop on that post, and tell the lady who compiled all that, there are some answers to her requests!
I just did this interview over at the Non-Canon Awards!!!
About me – I have stated that for now I am only editing chapters for fanfiction, (I have 30+ on Sacred alone!) and until I am done, I will be doing on that as I work on writing the Original Fiction. I have only months left to get that done. If I don’t then Fanfiction will be dropped to push through the dream of working through writing. So please, no demanding comments that I have to finish stuff. I want to finish stuff, I really do. The muse goes where it wants, and do you really want lackluster chapters? Written for the purpose of only giving you chapters and no meat in it? Why?
For those that ask about When I Pretend… All I can tell you, is that Every Dark Night has made it hard for me to continue with the plans for What If. I am having to shit that story cause I can no longer write Alice the way I saw her when I first wrote her. Also, I wrote that one in the midst of losing my job, sick and barely able to leave the house. To say I was depressed to one of the furthest reaches I have gotten is not far off the mark. I have struggled with it, and am bringing it out of the darkness it resided in. I have more to write on it, just haven’t got there yet.
However, When I Pretend is going to be worse on Alice and Edward if not the rest of the Cullens. I cannot write and finish What If if I work on that one too much. That is not fair to that story. I had warned people from the beginning that I wrote When I Pretend to some requests of fans, even though I had not written much beyond the first couple of chapters. It was in the section for pending stories and never meant to be more than that.
Now, the people who follow me here and talk to me through here, have not been as pushy as others in the other sites. But there are a few who do it here as well. All I have to say is that telling me to write on a story or else is not the way to get me to work on it. If anything it makes me mad and I could work on it, but never release a chapter, cause why should I? To have you get hateful when I go to others?
So let me go where I want. I will ALWAYS finish stories. Never giving up on any of them. I am going to work on reposting Tea Shoppe for Twilight and Alice fandoms here when I get a breather. I have no beta for it, but I have people asking for it. While I can add it to the Universe I am building, I figure why do that when you guys want it so much? I never thought the story would be liked as much as it ahs been. Shocker to me.
I am off to post some chapters to the other sites, then go back to working on my original Fiction. I have a chapter of In The End and Our Road is Long out to betas. They have real lives as well, so give us all a break. I know there are stories out there you want, but some of them are waiting for real life issues, and I rather give my betas all the support through their real life issues than demand chapters from them.
One, that I really have to thank whoever it is nominating my stories and banners for the BIT awards. Holy Cow!!!!!!!!
Two, that I AM working on In The End. I am currently time lining it as well as True Blood for Season 1 & 2. Seems I like rewriting them. Wonder why?
I am planning to not only finish it, but work on a bunch of stories that need to be finished. The ones that are up for consideration are:
This is NOT a Promise that these will be worked on, or finished. But I want some of these older ones gone to make room in my head for others. And yes, all the banners are links to their stories. I will be continuing to publish on Mondays (or Tuesdays if it happens) and I will be pushing to publish on other sites about that time also.
For now, I am getting my ducks in a row, as well as asking for help on translations. German is taken care of. Now for the rest….
Hi! I hope you all enjoy this week’s chapter. I know that many of you are impatient for Friday to arrive (when Sookie confronts Bill), but it’s going to be a while yet. It’s several days away, and there are more pieces to put into place. I hope that you all will be patient. Best,…
