Welcome to My LiveJournal
If you are here, mostly I use this LiveJournal for posting and linking my fanfics, as well as for occasional personal posts and photos. You will find that most of my posts, though, concern the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and tend to be very hobbit-centric.

You do not need to ask my permission to remix, podfic, translate, create art for or create secondary fanwork of any fanwork I have created. You should credit me and include a link back to my work. And please let me know because I'd love to see it.

I got this warning through fanficrants. Apparently a website has cropped up that is trawling through LJ, looking for anything tagged fanfic, and then reposting it WITHOUT PERMISSION.

Here is a link:

The link diverts you from the original. It takes you to a separate page that will not show up on search engines, in order to defeat the thief's purpose of attracting search engines. (The site is full of advertising.) But as you can see, a lot of people have been complaining.

I don't know if any of my friends may have been victimized, but there's a Complaint Page, which you can go to and make him take your stuff down.

I don't have time right now to see if he's lifted any of my stories, but I will be checking as soon as I can.

(And I'm using my fanfic tag so if he steals this entry he won't be getting any real fanfic, LOL!)
Today is Hobbit Day!

I'm going to celebrate by wearing my hobbit feet to the library knitting circle tonight! How are you going to celebrate?

In case you have not heard, the Henneth Annun Story Archive (known as HASA) will be shutting down at the end of the year!

An effort is underway to rescue stories that are not found elsewhere. The details can be found here.

If you can help, the post will explain how; if you can't help, please consider passing the information along! The project can use all the signal-boost it can get!

I'm guessing that some of you might have thought I dropped off the edge of the world! But I'm back, and I survived a road trip!

Now, about the vacation: We've been home six days, and this is my first chance to make a post. I will put it behind a cut, for length, since I kept notes of everything, LOL. Read more...Collapse )
24th-Aug-2014 07:44 pm - A refreshing summer treat

I came up with this the other day. It's a combination of several recipes I came across.

Watermelon Lemonade

8 cups of watermelon pulp
Juice of 2 large lemons
1/2 c. sugar (or the equivalent in your preferred sweetener)

1. Put the pulp in a blender and blend on high until it is slushy. Pour the pulp through a fine mesh strainer; you should have about 6 cups of watermelon juice.
2. Pour the watermelon juice and the lemon juice into a 2 quart pitcher.
3. If using sugar, make a simple syrup of the sugar and an equal amount of water, heated until the sugar dissolves. Otherwise use your sweetener as directed. Add to the pitcher.
4. Add more water and some ice until the pitcher is full. Serve icy cold.

This was SO good! Nearly all the other recipes called for the simple syrup and a larger amount of sugar than I specified. I think that would have been way too sweet. But I decided to use Truvia instead.

I've been on a watermelon kick this summer, devouring more of it this year than I have in a long time!
