Title: It's All Just Alchemy

Notes: This fic is an exciting, urban fantasy cop au (trust me, it totally works) with an absolutely perfect re-imagining of the characters to fit into the setting. There are so many things about the actual plot that I just love, but I sadly can't tell you what they are without spoiling the story. What I can tell you, is that the world-building is aaaah-mazing and the imagery is spectacular. Plus, there is amazing art from [livejournal.com profile] nix_this. This is our second year in a row of creating art/mix for a story, so I knew from the moment match up emails went out that I would love what she did.

For this mix, I tried to capture the mix of magic/modern and wizard/cop, as well as the natural mix of characters offered up by the cast and the setting, by using a variety of genres. The mix focuses most strongly on the relationship between McCoy and Nero, with some McCoy/Kirk thrown in on the side. I can only hope I did this story some justice. Big thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] heeroluva who helped me out when I was stumped for tracks. She suggested a few, and then suddenly the whole mix came together even though I only used one of her suggestions. Because of this, the mix literally wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for her.

As before, clicking on the song title will allow you to download individual songs, and a download link for the whole schebang is down below at the end of this post.

So this first story that I made a mix for was a really fun read. It's a Kirk/McCoy story, based on a fairytale. More information on the fic, as well as the track list and a download link, is over here @ [livejournal.com profile] galacticmoxy. (Or you could just click the cover art above.)

I've started posting my fandom stuff to [livejournal.com profile] galacticmoxy because my friend [livejournal.com profile] thegreatulysses wanted some place to post her stuff and I'd been thinking of getting a separate journal for my stuff, so we decided to get one place together. We...don't really have any fandoms in common and she's quite busy with school so mostly it will be me posting there, but whatever. We do what we want. So that is why all of the links for things will be heading over there instead of my lj.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] _samalander is bringing her pretty little butt down here next month. I am beyond excited to show her around and I cannot wait.

Woke up in a ridiculously good mood today and it has persisted like whoa. Told Bernard he needed to try really hard today to become an armadillo. So far he is still a cat. Got my shopping done before lunch and was super thrilled that the toilet paper was on sale. Yes, this is my life. I also bought a ~fig tree~ and idk what the hell I am going to do with figs but it is cool so whatevs.

I've been watching Make It Or Break It almost nonstop since I heard about it getting renewed for another season. Watching all the episodes basically back to back and knowing everything that's revealed about the characters later on, I'm picking up on a lot of things that seemed inconsequential when watching the first time.

Blah blah blah let's see what has been going on...

Made this but with bacon for Rob the other night. It was delicious, but I think the sweet potato I used was way too giant because it made enough for eight burritos. I would have liked a smaller sweet potato to green pepper/onion ratio. I've also made cream soda and ice cream recently. Now that the weather's getting cooler I'm thinking of trying chicken pot pie bites. I remember that Hot Pockets used to sell mini pot pies and I loved them and really miss the convenience of a hand-held meat pie combined with the awesomeness that is chicken pot pie.

I really do think my good mood is due to the fact that they've increased my hours at work. It feels so awesome to be able to buy groceries whenever I want. Plus, I'm not working at Party City this year so I can stay home on Halloween and give out candy.

I've also been having a lot of fun at [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_elite and with the Hufflepuffs over there. Everyone seems really nice, and there are a lot of really fun things going on over there.

Aaaand I think that's pretty much it. Finally got my [livejournal.com profile] startrekbigbang match up emails today and I am super excited for this year.

Title: If Wishes Were Horses
Notes: I love Janice Rand and it's a well-known fact that I've contemplated the place she could hold on the Enterprise in the new 'verse set up by the latest movie. Because of this, I was so excited to be able to read [livejournal.com profile] fringedweller 's take on my favorite Yeoman. In addition to the beautiful story, [livejournal.com profile] nix_this has created some GORGEOUS art, so I really suggest y'all stop what you're doing and take a look!

Notes: I was so excited to create a mix for this beautiful McCoy/Kirk friendship fic. They are my favorite duo from the entire Star Trek 'verse and [livejournal.com profile] alexajohnson did a wonderful job of telling their story.

Notes: I was so lucky to be able to mix for this amazing story. [livejournal.com profile] tocourtdisaster is a wonderful writer and her retelling of Winona and Sam's lives in this fic is both beautiful and heart-wrenching. [livejournal.com profile] shinychimera's artwork for it just as stunning. I literally gasped with delight when I saw it. I highly recommend reading it and viewing the art as soon as you can.

Okay, so I'm participating in [livejournal.com profile] startrekbigbang as a mixer, but I've never really done a fanmix for anything other than what I've wanted to do one for. So I'm opening up for you guys to request a mix from me. Just give me a pairing/fandom/situation/whatever and I'll make a mix of at least 5 songs for you. You can request a certain genre of music, but I can't promise I'll stick to that (which, to my understanding, is how stbb works as well).

I'm also going to try to do album art, but no promises because I've been given a few more hours at work and I'm not sure how my schedule's going to end up.
