Wow! This has been an amazing birthday for me. Pretty cards and time with family and friends and CHOCOLATE CAKE for dessert.
And lots of lovely birthday wishes from fandom too. Thank you all for the lovely thoughts and shout outs abyssinia
. And even some fandom "presents" too! You know the bestest thing about fandom presents? Everyone can enjoy them!
First off, was an amusing/scary classic SG-1 team fic
complete with sparkly font birthday wishes! Heh.
And then pepper_field
wrote a sequel fic to one of my favorite Sam & Daniel tales ever by writing up Therapeutic Effect
who shares my adoration of Lexa Doig, decided to spin off on that as her inspiration for a birthday caption.
Also in the pic motif, annerbhp outdid herself in SG-1 team awesomesauce picspam
of classic team and S9/10 era. See Jack&Daniel in the naughty corner and Teal'c's wrath on DVR sabotage, or Jaffa Jeopardy (OT: One of today's Jeopardy categories was all about October Firsts. Hee!)
Not to be outdone, supplyship
had the SG-1 team throw together a birthday party
for me complete with Urgo.
And still more fic!Battlefield
is S10 era team on some downtime teamy goodness...but there's a bit of [good natured] conflict going on.
Last but certainly not least, holdouttrout
explored Five Beings Who Inhabit the SGC
about some of those unsung heroes who work and/or live in the lower levels of Cheyenne Mountain.
And on the dreamwidth side, samantilles
made me a few special birthday icons
! (I'm using one of them here. :-D
AND someone anonymously gifted me with a year of paid time! (This may have just been coincidental, but I'm not so sure about that). Hmm. I have a small suspect list, but who knows, it may just be some random coincidence. ;-)
And then fignewton
have offered to write me fic based on prompts (they don't realize how dangerous this is. I'm terrible at prompting. When I get inspired it's usually with whole scenes and/or dialogue snippets).
And totally not birthday related, but paian
just introduced me to wyomingnot
's fanvids...she loves SG-1 AND Leverage. I think I'm in heaven. :-)
(Cross posting this on lj and dw, even though the usernames will probably get mucked up along the way)
