I'm not really sure why I never did one of these before, but I figured that because I've moved, I should make an intro here.

Total Fics Posted: 6 and a chapter.

Total Words Posted: 42,931

Total Words (of Anything Excluding Blogs) Written: This is not including school assignments and what nnot because I'm far too lazy to dig out all of those on my computer, but all my fic stuff comes to a total of 50,503.

My favourite story this year: Probably Percy Jackson, The Olympian or Ho Hey. I'm really pleased with the characterizations I had going for PJO and just the flow and the style made me really pleased. And I like the verse that I wrote Ho Hey in. That was fun.

My best story this year: I'm going to go with Percy Jackson, The Olympian again. Everything about that fic just felt really good and I got some nice, positive feedback on it which made me feel pretty happy with it.

Story most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: I feel like nothing was underappreciated, per say. If there aren't a lot of comments or what not, there's a reason. Maybe my Big Bang, When The Best part of Me Was Always You? I mean, it has a lot of kudos or whatever but it didn't get a ton of comments. But none of my stuff ever does, really.

Sexiest Story: Probably my Big Bang again. I mean, there isn't any sex in it, but it was still a lot more mature than I'm used to writing, I think.

Most fun story: Can I use a WIP? I'm co-writing a Liam/Harry roadtrip fic that's currently on hold. Anyway, I'm writing it with [ profile] thirteen_inches and the time we spent on it in the summer was super fun. Out of published stories, I guess Percy Jackson, The Olympian because I wrote that at like, four in the morning.

"Holy crap, that's *wrong*, even for you" story: I think maybe the stuff in When The Best Part of Me Was Always You. I cut some stuff from it that I didn't feel comfortable with but just some of the mind meld scenes were weird, looking back on it. Or stuff from led by light of a star. That just got heavy and I don't even nknow what~

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: Percy Jackson, The Olympian, When The Best Part of Me Was Always You, led by light of a star, and Ho Hey come to mind. I feel like my views on Nico changed a lot because of PJO; I used to not really like him as a character too much but now I'm excited to write more Percy/Nico stuff. And Ho Hey led me to the character Pollux, whom I've never really looked at before.

Hardest Story to Write: When The Best Part of Me Was Always You for the length of it and led by light of a star because it was really angsty and difficult? Even Percy Jackson, The Olympian was hard because I had to do a lot of research on diving and whatnot and I just wanted to have that fic done.

Biggest Surprise: Getting to work with Sonata, who is probably one of my favourite authors in any fandom. And becoming better friends with her. And getting such a good response on Percy Jackson, The Olympian from [ profile] finkpishnets , whom I also love and who the story was written for. That was surprising.

Resolutions for 2013: Do a better job on my Secret Santas, lol. And write more fics? Or more better quality ones? Or something. I don't know. Something like that, lol.

 Hi :)

So I know a lot of you on LJ just call me caddyeverafter7. Like, legit. You guys don't even shorten it to Caddy. Don't know why, but you just don't.

But boy, do I ever have a solution to you!

For the longest time I've just been flitting around the Interwebz and using my first name with everything that I encounter. Well, no more! I mean, it might be difficult to erase that from the past ("The Internet is written in pen!" says every cyber-bullying speaker ever to have spoken to me about Internet safety.) but I figure it's time to set the stones for the future, or some weird shit like that.

So yeah. Call me CRICKET. (Not necessarily in all caps.)

This alias would make a lot more sense if you followed me on DW or on tumblr where both my usernames are lilcrickee. Unfortunately, unless someone wants to gift me a renaming token, my LJ username will remain as caddyeverafter7. 

So even though it's confusing, call me Cricket. Now repeat.






chirp chirp. chirp chirp.

Lol. Bad jokes. But really guys. Cricket.

Cheers. I promise to make actual posts or something soon.

Percy Jackson, The Olympian | Percy Jackson & The Olympians | Percy/Nico, Percy/Tom Daley | ~6,300 | For [ profile] finkpishnets' prompt over at Citius, Altius, Fortius: percy is a diver and nico, well, no one knows exactly what nico does. | The majority of this story was written between the hours of three and eight in the morning with the equestrian team jumping in the background. I tried to be true to diving and swimming stuff but the Internet only helps you so much, so, sorry if there are any inaccuracies. Also, in this story, Olympic diver Thomas Finchum doesn't exist (Percy replaces him).

Lame title is lame. )

When The Best Part of Me Was Always You | X-Factor 2010 | Liam/Louis, Harry/Niall | PG-15 | ~15,350 words | They walk back to the bus in silence, the only sound between them the low hum of their connection. Liam wonders when it became so easy to manage, when they started to be able to filter each other’s thoughts enough so that only the important things got through. It’s been a long time, Liam thinks, since the bond appeared, and he’s just sort of accepted the fact it was there. It’s just part of his life now, and Liam thinks that that’s maybe the way it’s always going to be.

Big THANK-YOU to [ profile] twist204 and my friend Donya for Beta-ing this. You guys are rockstars!

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

Hey, so I have decided to devote my time to doing this 100 Things Challenge! With the playoffs in full swing and the end of the season looming, I figured I'd need some way to get my hockey fix throughout the summer, so what better way than to write about my 100 Favourite Hockey Moments? I apologize to my F-List right away because this could mean some double-posting from me, but hopefully I can amuse you all with the videos I find and maybe convert some of you non-hockey fans into fans of the sport. I'll be making my first post sometime this week, so look out for it, y'all!

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Summary: Liam wants to make Louis promise him, promise that they'll all come back and they won't have any battle scars, but he doesn't think he'll be able to handle it when Louis tells him he can't make promises he won't be able to keep.

So I've decided to do a scrapbook of 2012 on Dreamwidth this year and I also decided to do sort of monthly editions as well. Despite the fact that the title is January, this is really mostly stuff that I've enjoyed over the past month and two days and that hopefully you can enjoy all of this month. The idea is from [personal profile] aimmyarrowshigh who always does great ... well, I was going to say scrapbooks but really, she just does everything great. Haha.

 So while I try and deal with all the weirdness of layouts and whatnot, I guess I'll make my book post for 2011.

I think I had wanted to read some outrageous number of books this year (150, hah) and I didn't even come close to meeting my goal, but I did read quite a few novels and fic and such.  So, here's a roundup of all the novels I read this year.

* - Read for school
+ - Re-read
