Is it bad that my virtual birthday presents were way more exciting than my three-dimensional ones?

I had a nice quiet birthday. Planned cookout party had to be postponed a couple of weeks, so there was no cake, but the spouse took us all out for ice cream. The kidlet gave me a homemade card with a very surprised-looking face on it. The spouse gave me a box of chocolates. My parents gave me money and a nonstick sautee pan. Brother and in-laws forgot altogether, which means an extended celebration whenever they remember.

Oh, but here -- here I got so many stories! I'm listing them in the order in which I discovered them. I'd give the first one about an R and the last one maybe a PG; the rest are seriously smutty. If you like the stories, tell me if you want to, but tell the writer, for sure!

From [livejournal.com profile] khristaz, Benton Fraser and the Order of the Secret Goblet of the Philosopher’s Half-Blood Prisoner, some Fraser/Kowalski HP crossover craziness, with a view of Turnbull that would explain a great deal.

From [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed, omg one of the hottest things I've ever read: Détente, Aziraphale and Crowley and a very big bathtub, and if you've ever wondered what I mean when I say, "Friendly dirty talk," this story is an extended demonstration. (It's a sequel to an earlier story, Compromising Positions, which is also a direct hit on my kink centers.

From [livejournal.com profile] panisdead, Showboat, SGA schmorn, short, sweet, and hot hot! John and Rodney.

From [livejournal.com profile] _inbetween_, It Takes Two, a hot little threesome with John and Rodney and a woman who knows what she wants.

From [livejournal.com profile] nestra, Cadence, a beautiful [pardon the pun] coda to her SGA music AU, Counterpoint. It has the stuff I love in established relationships -- the combination of sweet familiarity and a new barrier coming down. John and Rodney.

From [livejournal.com profile] kormantic, a sweet hot SGA snippet with kissing and amateurish smoking. John and Rodney. Bonus SGA-related dream.

[edited to add one more!}

From [livejournal.com profile] lamardeuse, Contact Points, bittersweet SGA established-relationship love and longing. John and Rodney.

Thanks to everyone for your good wishes. I'm 42 this year, so I'm the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Belated Happy Birthday!!!

(And hey, if the 60s are the new 40s, are the 40s the new 20s??? I sure hope do!)

And is it bad to get to enjoy other people's birthdays? Because I sure enjoyed yours!!!!

Just proves that fandom gives the best presents for sharing! (The kidlet is quite determined to share my box of candy right out of existence; at least I can still read my stories even if everyone else read them too.)

Oh, cool! Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person in fandom who's not 25, so it's nice to hear from a fellow age-enhanced fan.

A lot on my f-list are of a similar age to me, which is nice, but some are 18 and it always makes me aware of how much a leveller LJ is. In rl, would an 18 year old even give a second glance? Housewife, mother of two, standing at the school bus stop chatting about report cards, soccer and bake sales? Doubt it.

But here on LJ I'm cool enough to friend, heh.

Hee. No, I think the whole enjoying virtual presents more is part of fandom. I know I was a bucket of squee over fics and things folks made me last month. :D

Oh, you've got enough to think about. Anyhow, I sort of preemptively consider all fiction that I like to belong to me, anyway.

Your icon makes me think of a description of Arnold Schwartzenegger that I once read, where the author said he looked "like a condom filled with walnuts."

I loved your gifts too.

And 42 was such a great year for me that I decided to just hang out at 42 until I can no longer get away with it. I figure I'll go straight from 42 to 50. hee!

I hope your year is wonderful, and you're inspired to write many more wonderful things to share with us.

Apologies for the very late birthday wishes, but I didn't have online access for a few days, so belatedly:

Happy birthday, and may the new year give you many of the things you hope for!

(But not all of them, because that would be boring. At least that's what people claim. I've always doubted that a little bit, but then, I'm not really the kind of person who needs a goal to be happy.
At the very least, may there be health and good porn, because you just can't go wrong with that.)

Thanks!

I suppose it would be boring to get all the things you hoped for, if all the things you hoped for weren't open-ended. (A new car, a sparkly tiara, whatever.) But if you hoped for a plane ticket to foreign lands, I don't see how it could be possible to be bored with that.

At the very least, may there be health and good porn, because you just can't go wrong with that.

The all-purpose good wish!
