Main Characters or Pairing: Sharpe/Wellington, Hogan and a surprise guest, who some of you may recognise and who is terribly OOC, I'm sure. ((
Rating/Type: PG, maybe PG-13
Summary: A Christmas Ball in Lisbon
Disclaimer: Sharpe, Hogan and other characters don't belong to me, I'm just playing with them.
A/N: Written for aninfamousarmy Christmas challenge, is therefore schmoopy and way too romantic.

Ohoho, that was an awesome day! After attending to certain matters, I met up with a friend for coffee, then as he left for work, I met up with another friend and we scouted the new mall that opened in Aberdeen over the weekend. :D They have Paperchase and Nando's! :D As we were leaving to go to the beach to watch the fireworks we met another mutual friend and so went there altogether. And then we decided on the spur of the moment to go to my favourite French restaurant, where we had amazing wine and snails and duck and absolutely gorgeous tarte tatin. *sighs, is content and warm and happy*
Oh, and I actually remembered I have written a Sharpe/Welly fic recently. It is somewhat cracky, but I had fun. :3

Characters: Wellington, Sharpe.
A/N: My brain is definitely getting into the idea of doing a Sharpe/Wellington food series. ^_^;;

Characters: Wellington, Alava, Sharpe.
A/N: I haven't written anything for a while and finally decided to do something about that by taking the idea of my Holmes "Food" fics and combining them with Sharpe and Wellington. This is just a short piece I wrote to get me going and it turned out rather strange and, dare I say it, metaphoric. >.>
“How much cheese is a handful? How much more or less is a cupful? What is the capacity of a glass, a tumbler, or a soup ladle? What is the difference between a suspicion and a pinch? How much more is a good pinch? How much wine is a little, how many olives a few? When a book says a tin of chopped almonds or pomegranate juice what are you supposed to understand by that?”

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn your music player on and turn it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabblet/ficlet related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterward! No matter how whacked out your drabble is. :)
4. Do ten of these, then post them.
Fandom: Sharpe. All drabbles except number 8 are Sharpe/Wellington.
( The 10 drabbles )
You can download a .zip file with all the 10 songs in order here. (Megaupload). :D
( Slashiness here. :D )
This quote from Gleig's memoirs of Wellington just can't leave me alone, so I have written this. XD Forgive me, f-list. I swear I am not x-posting it anywhere else. You are the only ones who see it. XD
"A pair of black leather leggings, fastened at the sides, and reaching half-way up the calf, protected his legs."
Yes! I did it! I finally, FINALLY, got the plot line of my big and scary Sharpe fic straight. OH JOY! It's not even overly melodramatic. ^_^;; Though, of course, now I want to rewrite everything written so far, even though I already re-wrote a lot of it. >.<
In other news. I got propositioned by a guy with pink hair and now I am hoping desperately he is not gonna take me up on my promise to meet up and hang out which I made BEFORE the proposition. x _ x I think I've used up a month's worth of excuses last night already. I wish I could just tell him to go to hell, but I've known him for a while, and he is actually a pretty nice guy, and we do have some history... But that history is like 4 years old! AAAAARGH, time to forget it. >.< *hides in the closet*
Since lately I became obsessed with the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, I decided to create my own special napoleonic wars League. XD And I drew them! They don't look like their originals at all, but, well XD I gotta share with the world! It obviously needs more work, especially colouring. >.<

Archie Goodwin is just so much fun! That's what he says in the 'Red Box':
'Fundamentally I am a direct type, and that's why I can never be a really fine detective. Although I keep it down as much as I can, so it won't interfere with my work, I always have an inclination in a case of murder to march up to all the possible suspects, one after another, and look them in the eye and ask them, 'Did you put that poison in the aspirin bottle?' and just keep that up until one of them says, 'Yes'. As I say, I keep it down but have to fight it.
Isn't he cute? :D

Now, that I've (finally) got space for lots of pretty icons I actually thought about how many fandoms I have. And... WOW. x _ x And I've decided to write them all down. You can have a look under the cut. They are divided by medium (book, tv series, movie) and in those cases where the fandom spans more than one, I've put their names under the medium heading that 'started it all'! (And I shan't even mention Russian language fandoms, well except one, which is available in English XD).
I'm sure I've missed some. *sigh*
