This is supposed to be my favorite time of year . . .

June usually signifies the end of the school year (in the USA), the start of summer, bbqs, pools, and the beach.  More importantly (to me at least), my birthday is sometime this month, and I LOVE celebrating my birthday.  But I have to say, this month is off to a crappy start . . . two massive deadlines at work that are causing me to work ridiculous hours, a migraine that is so bad I cannot see out of my left eye, and then there have been the teasers for the new season of True Blood.

Season 7 Promo


Is it so wrong that I would like to see ONE TV show I watch have a good ending that gives fans the resolution they want?  The show was called How I Met Your Mother, not how I banged and finally landed your Aunt Robin.  Dexter . . . we won’t even discuss how much I hated that ending.  Breaking Bad had a logical ending, but I can’t really say it was satisfying.  And now True Blood . . . no images of Eric in the two previews I’ve seen . . . a TV Guide article that says we’re getting back to the Sookie/Bill premise and there is a hot dream scene between Jason and Eric . . . filming of the show is still ongoing and last report was that Alex was on his way to London.    Seriously, I think I’m giving up on TV after this show is over; I spend all this time getting invested in these shows just to have them fuck me over.  TV is supposed to be about entertainment and enjoyment, what the fuck am I going to enjoy about seeing Sookie and Bill live happily ever after?!?!?!?!


Sorry about that; I needed to meditate to focus myself on the point of this post.

First, on behalf of the The Authority, thank you to everyone that voted in the You Want Blood Awards; they were a smashing success. I am very humbled that y’all thought enough of me to give me an award.

Second, it’s Sunday which means a story update.  This Sunday is a 2-for-1 special:

The choices we make WP hanging in the balance2


That’s right my lovelies, you get Chapter 2 of Choices and the first chapter of Hanging in the Balance.  For those of you that don’t know (maybe you’ve lived under a rock, out of the country, or imprisoned by Mag’s flying monkeys), The Choices We Make is the sequel to A Different Life.  Hanging in the Balance is my attempt to “fix” Season 7.  The prequels to Hanging in the Balance are Never Be and Longing.

Happy reading!

And maybe if the migraine goes away, you might get a third update later today.  But I’m thinking that is a HUGE if at the moment.

Thanks as always to my wonderful betas kleannhouse and magsmacdonald.

What can I say? My little shipper heart hated how SVM and TB treated Eric, so I have made it my mission to create worlds where the Viking always gets the girl. :-)

  1. I agree with you about the lack of excitement about the final season . Those promo pictures aren’t legit though. They’re fan made.

    Congratulations on your win! It’s a most deserved one because your writing is spectacular! You should be very proud!
    Now as far as the TV shows go, if it’s not NFL or certain college football teams OR NHL & UMaine hockey, we watch reruns. My hubby watches the local news every so often. I used to but I’d always end up seeing clients getting arrested for one thing or another so I stopped watching. Go with the reruns. You pretty much know what you’re gonna get or see what you may have missed!
    Congratulations again & have a great week!

    Is that chap for hanging in the balance missing? Says “not found?”

    Congrats on the win!

    As far as the show goes for the past 2 seasons I would DVR the episodes and just skip thru to the Eric parts. I’m not even sure what is going on anymore. Either way they will horribly disappoint us with the ending. I was a big fan of the books and couldn’t even get thru book 9. That series was ruined for me too! Fanfiction is the only place left to enjoy the awesomeness of Eric Northman. So thank you for helping make that possible!
