Japan - Secrets

Sampling

I got a bunch of perfume samples from Lucky Scent in yesterday. Last night I tried Burning Leaves, and today is In the Library. I thought I'd post about them as I go, or until I forget.

Burning Leaves really does have a scent of well, burning leaves. I like it, but at the same time, can't imagine smelling like that.

Burning Leaves notes:
The smoke of burning maple leaves

And that's it! I may try it one more time, just out of curiosity.

Today, I'm wearing In the Library and it's pleasant, but not to my taste.

In The Library notes:
Russian & Moroccan leather bindings, worn cloth and a hint of wood polish

Both scents, and most of the samples I got, are from a new line called CB I Hate Perfume, if you were interested in more information. Each scent comes with an essay on the website from the creator.

Don't Wanna

I've been planning to update my fic archive, and took stock of what needs doing tonight. I'm farther behind than I thought. Bleah! But I don't feel like doing HTML and FTPing stuff tonight. I have no idea what I do actually feel like doing, but that isn't it. Tomorrow night! Yeah, always put off till tomorrow what you can do today!

Don't feel like writing either. Or making icons.

I'm in a funk. I need to be defunked. Smutty fic, perhaps? That's usually a good place to start. Though I think I need to start looking for smutty books, because fic just doesn't seem to be there anymore in the fandoms and characters like. So if you have any book recs in that vein, pass them on. I can add them to my Amazon Wishlist and get a few every month.

Other than that, I'm ODing on the Food Network (Bobby Flay looks really nice in a suit!) and HGTV. And I have a dozen or more eps of Enterprise on the DVR to watch.

Forever Knight - Forever

Moldy Oldie: 'Oaths'

This one is nearly ten years old, but probably is the story I'm most proud of all these years later. Somebody on a totally unrelated email list mentioned to me last week that she remembered this particular story, and how much she enjoyed it. It was a nice little ego boo!

Oaths

The majority of it takes place in 78 AD, Transalpine Gaul to be exact, and explores reincarnation when one person is mortal, and the other a vampire. One of my rare non crossover fics! It was a finalist in the 1998 Forever Knight Fanfic Awards. It's also the only story I've written two versions of. Back in the day, it was too adult for the FK Fic email list, so I had to tone it down from the R it was to a PG13. This is the PG13 version, but I could probably be persuaded to share the adult version [g]

Rereading the notes, I realize that I'm still in contact with most of my support team/beta readers all these years later. aka_arduinna, otterevil, ninjababe, lilliew, and havocthecat. Thanks, guys!

Later the Next Day: Here's the link to the R rated version.
