The tease, part 2

So, I'm weak. And I do love this story and want to share it with people.

So, I'm posting the next 1200 words of this chapter, and making the tease worse... ;)

Oh, and did I forget to mention this was very much an ensemble action piece? It's going to end up with Spike/Buffy, Wesley/Willow, and a bit of Xander/Anya. And at least one character death, that I'll warn readers about in the very beginning so that they can choose not to read it if they don't want to.

Silver lining

So...do you think I went overboard for our company?

This is on the line-up for our Mexican buffet tonight:

Beef burritos---done
Chicken soft tacos
Beef soft tacos---done
3 different kinds of quesadillas (plain cheese, caramelized onion and chicken, and spinach)
My Mexican corn & rice
Homemade salsa and guacamole
Bean salad---done
Nachos w/cheese dip---done

And I bought 3 different kinds of Haagen Dazs---Pineapple Coconut, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, and Cherry Vanilla---instead of doing a dessert.

I'm not going to have to cook *at all* this weekend.

And most likely, not at all next week, either.

Is it just me?

Has LJ been wonky for anyone else today? I haven't been able to get on at all for the last 5 hours. OK, 3 1/2 of those were with company here and I didn't try during that time, but I swear, the 45 minutes before, and the hour after, it's been absolutely refusing to let me anywhere near it.

Anyway...my October conflict happens the week before Halloween, so I should still be all a go. We're going to talk to the in-laws tomorrow, and if that's OK, then I'll be buying my tickets this weekend. Woo hoo!

I made *way* too much food, although I learned that Alex will eat quesadillas, even if there's onion in them, so good news there. And for some reason he ate some of the salsa verde as well, which he normally would never touch. My weird, fickle son.

I got very little writing done today as a result of everything. I only have just over 1000 words on the Frost chapter, and I have to finish my blurb assignment this weekend as well. That means no Legions until most likely Tuesday at this rate, because if I get Frost up tomorrow by some miracle, then Sunday is spent doing the other writing. Maybe I'll post a bit more of the first Shroud chapter tomorrow.

OK. Tired now. Need sleep. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
