True Death: Week Six

Okay, so Seastarr08 and I had majorly crazy weeks at work and this just couldn’t get touched til the weekend. Sorry. But we just posted chapter five. It’s a little different this time, but we hope you’ll still be satisfied. We just write it as it comes and sometimes we don’t know what the hell is going to happen. This is one of those instances.

Here are your options for week six. Let the voting begin!


The True Death: Week Five

Wow. You guys are enjoying this murderous story! Glad to be of service. Here’s the poll for the coming week…don’t be shy – let us know who you want us to snuff out. *man, I’m really getting into this. I have a sad, sad life*

The True Death Week 4

We are loving the response to our murderous fic. It has been really fun to write! I hope we’re not getting too loopy for ya’ll! Anyway – the new poll for this week is up.

Vote for who you’d like us to kill next week!

Cupcakes, Books and Amazing Women!

So, crazy news! Seastarr08 tweeted me earlier – “Hey! We’re getting a shout out in this book!”

Honestly, I thought Caroline had finally lost her marbles. I couldn’t figure out what the joke was. I scratched my head at her in twit-speak and she forwarded me an email…

Someone from the SVM reader community, Linda, or DaisyDrk as you might know her, has a book coming out this fall!

Linda is from Australia (which isn’t really important, but is totally cool). She has a blog called Bubble and Sweet. While I was posting Halo Effect, she messaged me that Sookie’s food blog had inspired her to do the same. She even blogged about Halo Effect Cupcakes! (Moist lemon chiffon cupcake topped by a fluffy meringue, a sugary halo finished with a rich surprise filling. Umm- YUM!)

Recently, Linda and Caroline e-mailed about some publishing/contract stuff and here we are – with a reader/fanfic friend (I hope I can all her that) getting her book published!

The book is called “Sweets on a Stick: 150 Kid-Friendly Recipes for Cakes, Candies, Cookies, and Pies on the Go!” You can preorder it here!

Anyway – Linda wrote to tell us that she’s getting published and, among other people, she’s giving us a shout out in the acknowledgments in her book! We’re both beyond excited! (Thanks, Linda!)

I’m amazed every day by the relationships that I’ve made through fanfic and the fandoms I’m part of. We are a bunch of awesomely talented, and friendly, women from all across the globe. I had no idea what I was walking into when I published my first story on FFnet. You ladies are awesome!

Who Would You Kill on True Blood? Week 3

Seastarr08 and I just posted the second chapter of The True Death. We’re pretty amazed by the response to this crazy little endeavor. We’re not sure if we should be excited that you all dislike the side characters as much as we do or not!

This weeks episode looks jam packed.  I can’t wait!

This week 196 people voted! That’s insane! Here’s our next round of eligible characters!

Who Would You Kill on True Blood? Week2

Seastarr08 and I have our first winner, er loser, and we’ll post our one-shot before Saturday. We need a little time to plot his death.

Over 150 of you voted! Amazing! Thanks for playing along!

Here’s our next round of eligible characters!

Who Would You Kill on True Blood?

Seasatarro8and I spend a lot of time discussing how much we hate the side characters and plots on True Blood, which is sad because we loved some of them so much in the books. Anyway, we’ve decided to do a weekly poll and have a little fun with it. Winner (or loser, I suppose), gets killed off by us in a blaze of fanfictiony glory.

Cast your vote!

Peeking Out From Behind My Fanfic Bunker

A great article in Time about Fanfiction…

“Fan fiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don’t do it for money. That’s not what it’s about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They’re fans, but they’re not silent, couchbound consumers of media.”
