Story of the Moment
Lullaby by MeryKey PG13
A lullaby makes Max wonder if she is ready for motherhood. Warning: fluffiness!!
Jul 7, 2020 03:01 pm
Yay!!! We're back in the game. ((hugs))
May 22, 2020 10:56 pm
A little life-sign from me. I'm thinking of you and hope everything's ok. Please stay safe and healthy, everyone! *hugs*
May 3, 2020 03:25 am
Wow! I found you guys again! -hugs- Hi Shay and everybody! Hope you are all safe!
Apr 6, 2020 07:55 am
Hoping everyone is keeping safe and healthy! I'm on rec'd 12 week isolation as a vulnernable person and the lack of exercise is making me stiff and slow. But the little one keeps me busy!
Mar 8, 2020 11:08 pm
I'm not sure where the time keeps going, but I can't keep up! HUGS to everyone and I hope you are all keeping safe and healthy. Best wishes for 2020 xx Much love
Jan 19, 2020 09:08 am
Thank you!! I can't believe another year flew past! xx
Jan 7, 2020 10:52 pm
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our very own dear Shay! *hugs, brave leader*
Jan 3, 2020 12:05 am
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year, everyone! RH Wishes you all the best for the year ahead. xx
Dec 17, 2019 05:30 pm
Here's wishing you all Happy Holidays and a fantastic year 2020!
Oct 29, 2019 01:06 pm
With autumn taking us all in its grip, I hope you're all doing fine. ((hugs))
Oct 1, 2019 07:38 pm
Amen! Thanks for sharing your well wishes, Twinchy! And thank you for the lovely postcard! I don't have your home address any longer so haven't been able to reciprocate. Much love to you all
Sep 30, 2019 08:21 pm
A couple of hours late (but who is counting, right?): shana tova, to all who celebrate. May it be a year of peace, love, luck, respect and understanding for each other! ((grouphug))
Aug 18, 2019 10:09 am
And look! It's nearly a month since I was in here last... *sigh* Glad you got your computer sorted, Twinchy! Hope we can catch up soon. Love to Twinny and your dad x Miss you guys!
Aug 6, 2019 09:17 pm
I love you too, girl!!! As of a few days ago, I've got a new computer - now only to find the time to set it up... I hope you and yours are doing great as well. ((hugs))
Jul 26, 2019 11:52 pm
Twinchy!!! I love you regardless, so don't you worry! It's been a mad year with changes and new plans and I wish I'd been in touch more! I hope you and your family are doing well.
Jul 26, 2019 10:25 pm
I'm so incredibly sorry for going AWOL but I don't have a working computer since last November and am trying to solve the problem. I miss you dearly and hope to be back in here shortly.
Jul 19, 2019 02:54 pm
to do things just for me - even finding just a short while a day or even a week is a challenge! I miss being able to give in to a flight of fancy or try to find a new hobby. Or get to the gym...
Jul 19, 2019 02:53 pm
I swear, I blink and months have gone! I know what I signed up for with motherhood (or much of it, at least! there are plenty of surprises!) but I never realised just how little time there would be
Jun 23, 2019 12:00 am
Right now I'm struggling with trying to find an appropriate school for my little girl. There are so many options but only 1 or two will likely accept us. Applications are crazy and costly..

Shay, you never know when inspiration can return! Be it DA or another series... I finished Between the Lines almost 9 years after I started it... I feel like anything is possible.
May 26, 2019 11:18 pm
That said, who knows? Maybe once the little one is in school for longer and I have more time to myself... I'm so rusty that I fear even a good old oiling won't help much..!
May 26, 2019 11:18 pm
Hey Midnight! Goodness, I wish I could get my act together long enough to check and respond to more than 3 emails at a time, let alone consider writing anythings solid!
Midnight Parallax
May 25, 2019 12:35 am
We'll see, Shay - I've gotten a few ideas but I have to sit down and get real writing done. Any future writing plans for you? P.S. Shout out to vil while she's out writing her book!
May 23, 2019 10:50 pm
Thanks for the tip, Midnight. I saw your LJ post and bookmarked it based on your comments :) And further to that, will we be seeing more writing from you in the near future???

Hey! It's been too long since I checked in here. Just finished the Roswell, NM reboot and while it isn't as good as the original, I recommend checking it out...

Apr 4, 2019 04:04 am
The show went on for too long and I haven't watched since like Season 8, but what a run! I'm glad they know its the last and can plan it out.
Mar 31, 2019 10:00 am
That's fantastic! It sounds awesome! I can't wait to read it! :)
Mar 29, 2019 09:02 pm
Meh. My hubby wasn't a fan of my fanfiction obsessions but respected my choices and indulged my hobbies (w/ a healthy side of mockery :P) Yours will eat his socks when you knock it outta the park!
Mar 29, 2019 10:38 am
no worries. and thanks!!! i'll let y'all know when its finally available. super scar has a very early draft and so does my boss and my hubby. husbutt is not a fan. lol.
Mar 29, 2019 05:12 am
OH WOW, VIL! What an awesome endeavour and by a very talented writer :) Wish I could help but I can barely tie my shoes these days. Wish you luck!
Mar 28, 2019 06:32 pm
must love violence, war, fey and smut. paranormal erotic romance, baby. (and a shout out to my boss for encouraging me to write it.) 33 chapters and 177 pages (if printed)
Mar 28, 2019 06:31 pm
sorry for the absence, but i need help! i'm writing my first series to be published (!!!) and i need some beta readers to help with the plot and such
Mar 27, 2019 09:13 am
Wow, what a run for a show! (Particularly in this day and age.) Hope everyone has been well x I can't believe my little one started nursery already and that I'm going back to work in April..

Supernatural is ending next season! It's the end of an era...
Feb 6, 2019 01:53 am
FINALLY!! They fixed the heating and water this afternoon. I dont think I could have managed it any longer!
Feb 5, 2019 11:29 am
Hope you're feeling warmer and have hot water now!
Feb 3, 2019 11:12 am
of the new boiler system. Anyway, I wish you all a safe, warm and dry winter! (or those in warmer climes, a safe, cool and hydrated one!) Best wishes to you all, my lovelies! MWAH!
Feb 3, 2019 11:11 am
have minimal heat in 2 rooms. Still no hot water other than the shower, but thankfully that works for washig and bathing!! Hopefully these issues will be resolved tomorrow with installation
Feb 3, 2019 11:10 am
Emergency electrician came out and fixed the fusebox, checked all the sockets and declared it safe to use again, but we are limited to the number of electric heaters we can use at once. We only

when noxious, acrid smoke was coming out of the underside of my oven (the fusebox is in the cupboard beneath it.) So we had to cut all power!! and had no water, heat, gas, or general electric.
Feb 3, 2019 11:09 am
Then, on Friday night, we nearly had an electrical fire in our fuse box!! The system overloaded and had a meltdown, causing the wire casings to melt and meld together. I noticed it just at dinner time
Feb 3, 2019 11:08 am
quite a lot of power. The week after, the hot water died out. So we were making do with a large urn that was on all day and boiling kettles as necessary. Thankfully our shower is on a separate sytstem
Feb 3, 2019 11:07 am
This has been an insane winter. Our boiler started acting up 3 weeks ago and left us without any heat, but still with hot water. We added electric space heaters for warmth but they require

Happy 2019 Everyone!
Nov 17, 2018 05:42 pm
And for anyone who might be interested, I'll be posting some X-mas word prompts in case anyone is looking for inspiration. Wishing you all the best leading up to the festive season! xx
Nov 17, 2018 05:41 pm
Congrats, Midnight :) I'll be another year older in January and I'm feeling it; I swear, my limb creak!
Midnight Parallax
Nov 6, 2018 06:00 am
Hi Shay! Yes, it was in October :) Thanks for remembering. I can't believe I'm another year older. Hi Twinchy!
Nov 2, 2018 02:00 am
*waves back fondly* I hope you're all doing well. I miss you guys so, so much! Here's hoping for a breather to throw in a prompt fill for summer. It's barely into fall, right? ;-)
Oct 29, 2018 10:05 am
Didn't you have a birthday recently, Midnight? Hope it was a great one!!
Midnight Parallax
Oct 26, 2018 01:24 am
*waves back* Hi Shay and everyone who's still around!
Oct 3, 2018 03:07 pm
Hey everyone! It's been a while. I honestly don't know where the time goes!! Just wanted to wave a friendly hello and say that I hope you're all happy, healthy and well xx
Aug 20, 2018 10:19 pm
LOL keep selling it to me...!
Aug 20, 2018 05:28 am
YES!!! I didn't notice that before but its TOTALLY true!
Midnight Parallax
Aug 16, 2018 01:02 am
Yes! Duke and Audrey! Nathan was such a snooze. I blame this on Jose Molina making them so similar to Max, Alec and Logan. LOL
Aug 9, 2018 08:34 am
I'm a huge Haven fan! Love the show, but I'm Duke/Audrey all the way :P
Aug 7, 2018 05:08 pm
It definitely does. And the plot could be top notch but if the characters don't carry the story... well, I'd rather have a better cast than plot. If you get me ;) So... I should watch it?
Midnight Parallax
Aug 7, 2018 12:10 am
I finished Haven! The series is a solid B series in terms of plot, but A in terms of characters... If that makes any sort of sense?
Aug 6, 2018 11:06 pm
Is it just me or is the heat making your brain melt, too? *hangs head* I feel like a lump of muddled blah.
Aug 1, 2018 10:12 pm
Be sure to let me know ;)
Midnight Parallax
Jul 30, 2018 11:51 pm
I'm halfway through Season 3, and I'd say I preferred the first 2 seasons more. I'll pass judgment once I'm done. LOL
Jul 30, 2018 09:25 am
Huh! Interesting facts :) Have you seen much more of the series? What do you think so far? Haven's been on my 'to watch' list but I never got around to it!
Midnight Parallax
Jul 30, 2018 02:35 am
As it turns out, the Dark Angel writer who wrote the episode Haven was the executive producer of the series Haven. It explains the many DA vibes I get from the show.
Midnight Parallax
Jul 30, 2018 02:33 am
The episode Haven is about Max and Logan going on a vacation in small town with a secret past. The TV series Haven is based on a Stephen King story.
Midnight Parallax
Jul 30, 2018 02:30 am
Ok, so irony of ironies. I started watching the series Haven, and I'm like 'This sounds a lot like Dark Angel... I'm just assuming it's the same because of the S1 episode Haven...'
Jul 20, 2018 08:28 pm
Right! I'm officially putting it out there: All writers, rusty or otherwise (!) are welcome to take up the summer RH propmt suggested by Midnight Parallax: Summer Vacation, DA style!
Jul 13, 2018 11:37 am
Hope y'all are having a good summer (or winter, if you're Down Under and that region!!) Keep safe, hydrated and cool (or warm and dry!) Love ya!
Jul 13, 2018 11:36 am
And when the week from hell was over, we spent another week on the outskirts of hell, which was only marginally better...!!! Silver lining - extra cuddling and bonding time with baby girl!
Jul 6, 2018 11:44 pm
Ok, week from hell. *wobbles* I'mma need a breather, holiday, lottery win and a margarita or 6 to get over that. *cries* More than a competition, I need a beach holiday!!!!!!!!!!
Midnight Parallax
Jul 3, 2018 10:40 pm
It's ok, I was just throwing an idea out there that I was toying with.
Jul 1, 2018 03:04 am
Please note that I'm not saying no! just promoting additional ideas...
Jul 1, 2018 03:04 am
Bah. I've not been on vacation for a while so I'm not sure I'd do it justice :P What to the rest of you think, and/or what other ideas do you have??
Midnight Parallax
Jun 24, 2018 11:23 pm
I was thinking along the characters taking a vacation and what mischief they can get into? Like going on a cruise, a trip into the woods, or maybe even the first summer in Terminal City.
Jun 24, 2018 10:24 pm
Hmm, Midnight, can you elaborate a bit in a little more detail?
Midnight Parallax
Jun 24, 2018 06:39 pm
I don't mind a challenge. It's summer, so how about (summer) vacation as a theme?
Jun 23, 2018 11:46 am
We can deliberate on the suggestions and come up with a timeframe/deadline for submissions :) I think it would be fun even if just to have the group supporting and rooting for each other!
Jun 23, 2018 11:43 am
Admin and members? Anyone who feels rusty because they haven't written in a while or haven't had a cooperative muse! Any and all suggestions for competition guidelines are welcome
Jun 23, 2018 01:45 am
Haha, I love that idea!
Jun 21, 2018 04:08 pm
I don't know about most of you, but I've not really written anything substantial (or even inconsequential!) in over a year. Maybe we should have a Rusty Writer's Competition for the Admin
Jun 21, 2018 04:07 pm
I miss you guys!!
Jun 17, 2018 05:29 pm
Fab ideas for sure, Skye, although the weather should be a bit less stuffy by now. *hugs to you all*
Jun 7, 2018 09:32 am
Thanks for the tips, Skye!
Jun 3, 2018 09:24 am
Or put a wet facecloth in the fridge and give it to her to munch on. It's a teething trick but it works for hot days, too.
Jun 3, 2018 09:22 am
A trick we use is to attach an ice brick to the front of a fan. Also, we eat lots of ice cubes. For the babies, I have a bunch of gel packs in the fridge to put on their necks.
Jun 2, 2018 10:39 pm
I honestly feel we need an aircon unit in the lounge because it's so stuffy :( but who can afford it? *sigh* Little bub is lucky her room is one of the coolest in the flat!
Jun 2, 2018 10:38 pm
Thinking of you, too, Twinchy! Send my love to your sister and your dad, too xx
Jun 1, 2018 12:50 am
Haha, yeah, it's 19 degrees today and it's freezing! :P
May 31, 2018 06:10 pm
Skylar, good point about it being winter and still having much the same weather. hehe
May 31, 2018 06:09 pm
Please don't melt away, Shay sweets! I hope you're doing well. We've been thinking of you a lot. ((hugs))
May 29, 2018 09:51 pm
We've been having the craziest weather. So humid, colder nights (12-16c) & then anywhere up to 26 in the daytime! Our flat is so stuffy that we're sweating at 18 degrees & it only gets worse
May 29, 2018 01:18 am
It's winter here, but it's probably the same temperature you're experiencing :P
May 27, 2018 05:10 pm
Future-set DA scenarios featuring Ames White... count me in! Hope summer's come for all of you too and everyone's doing great! ((hugs))
May 24, 2018 08:59 pm
LOL, BadCat! I'll have to email them to you. You mightn't agree with me but I think it was certainly fodder for the imagination :)
May 23, 2018 04:51 pm
SHAY!!! You can't let me read something like that and not share pics!!! Bad girl!! (I'm totally with you on future!fics though... yummy!!)
May 22, 2018 10:00 pm
Just saw a recent [2017] photo of Martin Cummins (Ames White) and thought, "Huh, he's aged pretty well." And now I've a number of future-set DA scenarios turning over in my mind
May 2, 2018 11:26 pm
*hugs* :)
May 1, 2018 10:06 pm
Hope you all had a great May holiday. *hugs*
Apr 25, 2018 03:36 am
Hahaha, I'd watch it first, but good to know! I might be able to steer them toward something else. They liked Cloak & Dagger :)
Apr 22, 2018 05:35 pm
Well, in that case I'll give it some real thought. Thanks for the heads-up, girls. Not sure about Skylar's kiddies then though. ((hugs))
Midnight Parallax
Apr 22, 2018 04:58 pm
I'd put it at PG, there's quite a bit of sex and violence, on par with Vampire Diaries if I needed a point of reference.
Apr 18, 2018 03:13 am
I thought it looked good, and my girls want to watch it, but I was worried about it being too scary for them.
Midnight Parallax
Apr 15, 2018 06:53 pm
It's only 4 episodes in, and I'd say it's more SyFy Channel than Freeform, so I'd recommend checking it out.
Apr 15, 2018 05:32 pm
Nope, haven't seen that one yet but I heard promising things about it. Is it any good, Midnight?

Hello All!

It's that time of year again!

Goodness knows that it's particularly difficult to find spare time around the holidays to do anything just for fun.

That said, we certainly hope that some of you will find...
