Do I have to hide? ‘Cause I have a DBT2 new chapter for you!

So it’s been a while… I know, I know, but in my defense I’m still without a computer at home so I have to rely on the kindness of my parents who are allowing me the use of their PC and my evening shift at the hotel. Things slowed down pretty much after the Winter Carnaval so I have some time to transcribe what I wrote on paper.

Yep, not having a computer sucks a lot! And lets not forget about real life, right? In between my shifts at the hotel I was able to find enough time to actually go to the movie theater (the last time I had been there was back in Feb 2013 for Warm Bodies!) and see Fifty Shades of Grey! My expectations weren’t as high as some other people. I mean I’m a fan, from way back when FSoG was Master of the Universe (I’m blushing now, ’cause I’m a very vocal anti-Twilight person normally and MotU was the only Twilight fic I ever read) and I knew that the movie wouldn’t match 100% what I had envisoned. I mean my Christian was Henry Cavill, although Jamie Dornan did an amazing job with a character who, let’s be honest, isn’t an easy one (I mean, being 3-4 years old and spending 4 days locked in an appartment with your dead mother’s body? Yeah, no surprise he ended up 50 shades of f*cked up). And Dakota Johnson? I was blowned away! But then she’s Tippi Hedren’s granddaughter, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson’s daughter and Antonio Banderas’ ex-stepdaughter, she’s got quite the acting pedigree. Anyway, I thought FSoG was a great entertainment and I can’t wait for Fifty Shades Darker (they start shooting in June, I think I’ll take my vacations at that time and couch crash at my former roomie’s place in Vancouver, BC).

So… In the last two weeks my stories and I were the recipients of lots of love (a big thanks to the awesome Kelpie for the stories and author spotlights!). I can’t begin to tell you how much it means to me…

Enough with me being extremely emotional over the love y’all are pouring at me… A new chapter of Dead Briefs is now ready for you!!!!!! As usual you are more than welcome to leave a comment, a review, a note, they mean the world to me.

Luv,

Lara K

Summary: Who’s as devasted as me after Season 6 finale? I’ve been so down after watching it, especially the whole 6 months later thing after the Sweden scene, that I needed to write something. Think of it as some sort of therapy. And the result is this story. Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy it.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So this is another TB fix….but after season 6. Remember how devastated we all were about Eric’s sunbathing mishap? She’s done a wonderful job of illustrating the aftermath from Sookie’s side and the subsequent quest she embarks on. And the new characters she introduces are absolutely awesome. How I wish these were real characters in the TB universe.

She’s woven a new and exciting chapter for the TB universe and I absolutely can’t wait for more…

Summary: AU – After moving to Louisiana and surviving an attack by the Fangbangers killer, Sookie Stackhouse is more than ready to settle into her new life next to her vampire client/lover, Eric Northman. But when a series of events threaten the happiness they had been looking forward to, it’s up to the telepathic lawyer and the Viking Vampire Sheriff to save the day.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So yet another awesome installment of the Dead Briefa series. I have no idea how she has stay SO true to the show and still manged to write a completely new story. It’s actually sort of astonishing.

But this picks up right where season 2 of Tue Blood does and she’s managed to weave a new version of events that are the same-but not.

And honestly…

I’m on the receiving end of so much love this week!

Woo hoo! I have another awesome author for y’all to check out! I’ve been delving into the recesses of my fanfic.net favorites to get back into the TB/SVM/OUAT swing of things and this chick caught my eyes immediately and I was like “AH! YES!!!”. And thus began my descent into the madness of re-reading her Dead Briefs series. :)

She’s seriously so frickin’ sweet it’s like…ridiculous. And talented…if she hadn’t mentioned it, I would never have known English wasn’t her first language. Any of the very few mistakes I happened to notice I figured were autocorrect fuckups that she didn’t catch. And yeah, I’m the queen of ducking autocorrect. So yeah. Like I said, mega talent here .I’m gonna leave you to read what she has to say and I’ll see you at the bottom. :)

Let’s start with an introduction. I’m Kelly, or as more people know me, Kelpie.

Summary: AU – Shortly after her father’s death, recent law school graduate Sookie Stackhouse moves to Bon Temps, LA to be closer to her Gran and brother and to work at her family’s law practice that caters to supes, including VIP client Eric Northman.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
I read this story like-forever ago. And then the finale happened and I shunned anything that remotely reminded me of my misery. But yeah I’m revisiting this story and I remember how much I absolutely LOVED it!

It’s a new spin on the story, a true AU (at least in my eyes) and the story she’s woven while keeping true to the source material…yeah it’s brilliant. Truly brilliant. I love the interaction of Eric and Sookie (I mean, when DON’T I???) but this is different. I can’t…

An obituary and a new DB chapter

Lara Kingsley’s laptop died January 18th, 2015 at its owner’s appartment. LK’s laptop, or L’ordi as it was known by its loved one e.i. Lara Kingsley, passed away after a rather short illness at the age of 4 years old. Luckily its owner was able to save much of her files on a USB flash drive before the poor thing finally let go. 

Yep, my computer is dead… I really am not lucky when it comes to my laptop, but this one actually lasted longer than any of my previous ones. So I’m computer-less right now, although I do have my Tab and my parents are nice enough to allow me to use their own PC until I get a new one. I’ll probably go for a mini-PC and hook it up to my TV. Anyway, since writing full lenght chapter on a Tab is not ideal, I’m back to pen and paper… So until I get my new computer the time between each chapter may be longer than usual.

But now to the real reason for this post! A new Dead Briefs chapter!!!!! Rejoice!!!! ;) So I think you know the drill, right? Read and review/comment.

Luv,

Merry belated Christmas!

Merry belated Christmas, dear reader! My muse decided to take a little vacation while I was battling a mean cold (which I still am). Add to that the fact that it was Christmas party season at the hotel and you’ll understand that I didn’t have much time to write.

I hope you all had a very good Christmas. Mine was awesome, even though Santa still hasn’t brought me what I really wanted. I mean, is it this hard to get a Swedish hunk in his sleigh? Unless Mrs Claus was a sneaky one and took him for herself! ;) There’s always next year, right?

Anyway, to finish 2014 I have a new Dead Briefs for you! A short one, but still a new one! As usual your comments and reviews are more than welcome.

Luv,

Lara K.
