birthdays and award nomination

Okay, still trying to get caught up. Two important things: First of all, hope you had/are having/will have a very happy birthday this/last week to bethnolastname, irish_injun, raemcn, psubrat, trysts, darsynia, ourchimera, oldgreymare, eternal_shalott, and femmenerd!!!!!

It's not as long a list as it seems -- in some cases two of those are the same people -- but clearly a good several days for LJ'ers. Sorry I wasn't here for most of it; it's looking to stay busy for the foreseeable future and I don't know that I'll be commenting much.

Meanwhile, my story "She Would be Thirteen" was nominated for best genfic at absence_oflight, a newer award site celebrating the -- well, dark: "We are The Absence of Light Awards – a site specifically created to celebrate the BtVS and A:tS fic that makes you cry, or shudder, or just sit staring sadly into your coffee for hours once you’ve finished reading it."

This isn't ordinarily my kind of thing, as I lean toward the light and fluffy stuff, so I'm doubly honored for a nomination and thankful to whoever put my name in. Go over and check out the site -- there are lots of great writers at work over there!
