*is back* + the obligatory christmas post ;)  
Miracle of miracles, the train was also early. Which actually meant less sleep, but it's not like I was sleeping in the first place. So I unpacked, SPN is downloading and I'll watch in half an hour, I'm caught up with the FL and I'm also almost done with The Wire S2 because I watched the second to last episode on the laptop yesterday and I only miss the finale. Did it take me much...

But anyway, on to serious business.

I still haven't decided whether to do the Christmas cards post or not because I like to make them personalized but my printer is kind of out of order this year, too, and while last year I managed anyway, this year I'm probably going to be busier than usual in December and I don't know if I'd be able to make it. I'll probably think about it some more, but meanwhile, especially if I asked you for a card and I end up not being able to do the cards business, I'm doing the same thing I did last year. So, I guess it all boils down to the Christmas gifts post of doom. So, what I can do:

- Fic: I guess that it'd probably be ficlets since I have the novel and the Lost Hohoho assignment on my hands, but I highly doubt I'd manage to keep the length in check. Anyway, prompt me with anything you'd like. With Lost, I'll take/try everything except Jack/Kate or Ben paired (Ben crack is fine). Regarding other fandoms, I can give Pushing Daisies a try, or FNL until S1 because I still haven't watched S3 and I doubt I could write S2. Also Heroes but considering how I am lately with that show maybe it wouldn't be a wise idea. I can do Supernatural without much problems (Dean/Sam or Dean/Castiel preferably, though I can't write het and I can't write J2, or at least I failed every time I tried). I can do pretty much anything Stephen King, Dark Tower series especially. And if there's something else you want that you know I like I'll give it a try.

- Graphics: anything but full layouts because I lose at coding. But icons/headers/lovebars/whatever are all fine with me. Any subject is fine as long as you give me pictures if I don't have them.

- Meta: I don't know whether some meta from yours truly could be anything useful at all, but I'm all up for it. Any subject I have some knowledge about would do I guess, fandom related or not.

Okay, that'd be pretty much all. And now I'll be off to watch SPN since the download is over.
feeling: okayokay

Bentornata! :D
Oddio, quando si parla di grafiche io mi esalto! Non è che posso avere un'icona piccina picciò? Ben Linus è uno dei miei miti <3

Certo! ;) qualche foto di preferenza? Con le icone non c'è problema di sorta ♥ ;)

Lascio a te la scelta, grazie ♥

Non so se hai già fatto l'icona! Ho appena finito di vedere Lost e ho avuto un'illuminazione: l'espressione di Ben quando Locke gli dice che ha appena fatto saltare in aria la nave.
Ben: "E allora?"
E' un gran bastardo, ma lo adoro!!!!

I loved SPN! I hope you do too!

I'd love a banner for my user info page. Maybe a SPN one? Something with all my favorites?

I loved it indeed! It was such a good episode. And I'm glad I watched it late because now I have two days less to wait for the next part ;)

Sure thing! I think I have an idea of what those are so no problem. Will do!

Ooh! I really need a banner for my LJ. I'd love something like your current banner that matches the new colours of my layout & default icon. I'd love some sort of grainy picture or landscape (nothing too fandomy) covered with bits of text. Maybe you can pick me out some good music lyrics? Music is your speciality. You know my favs. Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, etc.

Thank you!

Sure thing! That wouldn't be a problem, especially the lyrics bit ;) and you have some gorgeous colors on there. You got that, will do. ♥

And then surprise it will be! I hope a pleasant one ;) expect something then, I'll surely do you something. Of the ficcy kind ;)

You are too sweet!

I still feel spoiled from last year's icons! They were my first real ones.

Do you have any interest in turning the blue shirt series into a trilogy? What adventures has it had since the seminar? Or what powers has it had since it left the island? Penny's thoughts?

the female ghost of tom joad: lost des blue shirtjanie_tangerine on November 16th, 2008 04:19 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks! And oh, I did love doing last year's icons, I so did.

And OF COURSE, I can't refuse more blue shirt really. I was sort of missing it anyway ;) you'll surely get more blue adventures! I can't guarantee on the madness level though.
elliotsmelliotelliotsmelliot on November 16th, 2008 05:18 pm (UTC)
Yay! Thanks so much. Any scale of madness is fine with me!

ohh, Z had a good idea! I'd love to have a couple of love bars for my profile, featuring the SPN boys :)

Sure thing! My Christmas will be indeed filled with pretty ;)

I have you on my Christmas card list, and I know how great you are at graphics, so I wonder if I could ask for some icons? I'm halfway through an epic of doom about the Lost characters as a rock band... and would love some help on the icon/banner front if you think you can spare the time. If you send me your e-mail address, we can discuss, and I can send you what pictures I have, if that helps?

Thanks - but hey, if it sounds like too much, please tell me! I'm at haldoor42 at yahoo.com.au
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack/boonejanie_tangerine on November 17th, 2008 01:12 am (UTC)
I can DEFINITELY spare the time! Rock band AU? That's all kinds of awesome (and uhm, yeah, rock bands + Lost = yours truly goes to heaven), I'd be more than happy to do it! My e-mail is janiedean1919@yahoo.it, e-mail me any time really ;)
a geek in such the wrong way: boone-closeuphaldoor on November 20th, 2008 01:45 am (UTC)
I will do this soon, and thank you again!

You know it's funny you should say that...the icon I'm using here is one of the pictures on my slideshow screensaver at work, and someone who's never seen Lost managed to see it the other day and asked who was the guy who looked like a washed up old punk rocker, meaning Ben!

So out of interest, is that how Ben features in your fic?
a geek in such the wrong way: sayid-closeuphaldoor on November 20th, 2008 01:47 am (UTC)
HA! He is in it, as it happens, but not having given him much of a background...well, who knows? Although, having said that, the fic is set in the mid-seventies, sort of before punk rock was major, so probably not quite his b/g! I hope you might have a look at it when it's up, anyway! ;-)

*squeezes* You are too sweet!

Also, I've been thinking about your whole username connection thing (not a stalker, I promise!), and I realized that I'd always thought you took your name from Springsteen--either Janey Don't You Lose Heart, or Spirit in the Night (which is SUCH AN AWESOME SONG and when I saw him this summer he started it lying down and the camera was zoomed in and it did very excellent things).

That's just a sidenote. The end.

OK, but seriously now, if you're taking requests still some icons would be AWESOME! Basically, if you can combine Springsteen with any of my favorites (Roland, Desmond, Sawyer), I would just love it. From there I leave it to your inspiration!

*squeezes you again just because*

OMG he did the same thing when I saw him, too! It was delightful. It was TOTALLY delightful. And if Bruce had come before JBJ in my music epiphany I'd probably be Janey or Mary now ;) but I love my name since not only it's also in an Aerosmith song but it's also similar to that Janey he seems to like a lot ;)

Oh, I can TOTALLY do that. And I'd be more than happy to comply. -nods eagerly- I definitely will do!

you know that your Cris is happy with anything SPN/J2 related right?.....
