Happy LJ Anniversary to me!  
Four years! SO much fun. Thank you all for putting up with all the madness, from Potter to politics, science to ukuleles.

I thought of writing something for the occasion, but finishing Fathers left me a bit brain dead and my remaining brain is being used for work and for a pinch-hit that I am doing for a fest, because I can almost never say no to a nice mod.

But I did make a little something!  My dear RL friend treacle_tartlet  and I have a similar sense of humour and have been confused for each other in fests once or twice. So here is a foolproof guide to working out whether a story was written by Treacle, or by me! (Apologies for the appalling handwriting (I was watching the news, and my pen ran out of ink), and you will probably need to click to enlarge.)



In other news, thanks so much for all the chocolate heads! MASSIVE pig-out!

Much love, hugs, kisses and fondant-guzzling slurps as appropriate to jesskakay , ineffably_roma ; dear anonymous; curia_regis ; brissygirl ; the_gubette ; ldydark1 ; stellamoon ; naadi ; lilliputian722 ; teas_me ; subtlefire ; taradiane ; painless_j ; sassy_cissa ; groolover ;  alisanne ; alex_s9 ; melusinahp ; ariannagray ; skriftlig ; kitty_fic ; cassie_black12 ; filmatleven ; dysonrules ; tsosh ; phoenixacid ; rickey_a  and nursedarry 

And in answer to some of the notes and questions attached: tomatoe18 , you flatterer, I just have awesome friends!; pushdragon , funnily enough, my brain often feels as though it is made out of strawberry fondant!; fiercedragon13  – thank you! I will endeavour to write more!; unvarnishedtale  -- we will decapitate them all with our gnashy little teeth!; thisgirl_is  -- I try not to think of such things!; alaana_fair  -- a man bearing chocolate!; treacle_tartlet  you have left me not wanting to eat strawberry-centred anything for a while ...; winstonmom  -- it's mutual!; geneva2010  -- work first, the fic will still be there!; kayoko  -- I once shared my Easter eggs with my dog, she ended up at the vet and I ended up in hospital with gastro, I was 2 -- you would be an immensely better option!; lrndng  -- I would like to say it was the first time, but ...'; calanthe_fics  – oh, you knew that there wasn't going to be a sex scene, they're not Marauders!; dylansbuzz  and chantefable  -- it's chocolate OR ukulele, alas, they don't mix!

And finally, libby_drew , thank you for the picnic basket! You are responsible for so much of the last four years :-) (the rest is mostly norton_gale , Gillian Brampton, Cal, Rai, Ping, Mere and Push ...)

Re: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
Terrible young woman!

OH how I love Charles. Thank you, dear! I would love to read a me-fic by you, it would be amazing! Has there ever been a fest where people impersonate each other? Could go horribly wrong, but could be BRILLIANT!!

(And I need to get off LJ and on to my ukulele practise for the evening! )

THIS IS THE BEST FEST PREMISE EVER.

Re: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
If we can't convince others of it as a premise, the three of us alone would be terrific!

Re: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
Darling I would be hard-pressed to emulate your brain of twisty genius! But let's try anyway! And pinch-hits from me can be produced in 15 days or less as has been proven on several occasions ;-)

Re: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
This you could (mayhap) possibly do--by all means, muddy the waters with chocolate!
Hueyphoenixacid on July 14th, 2011 01:47 pm (UTC)
Aahahahaha, I took a random Brammers and Treacle fic to test the chart out - it works!

Happy anniversary!!!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 14th, 2011 01:54 pm (UTC)
Thank you, darling! I was going to mention the chart to Treacle first, but I thought it would be funnier listening to her howls of outrage over the internet ;-) And of course it works!
prone to mischieftreacle_tartlet on July 14th, 2011 02:10 pm (UTC)
HOWLS OF LAUGHTER!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 14th, 2011 02:17 pm (UTC)
My work here is complete!

Plus it is a useful resource for the confused!
ecosopherecosopher on July 14th, 2011 02:01 pm (UTC)
Congratulations on your lj-versary! I'm very glad you chose to share with us all your musings, from whichever sphere they come!

Sorry I've not managed to get onto reading 'Fathers' yet - after tomorrow will have a little more time and I look forward to it :)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 14th, 2011 02:06 pm (UTC)
There's on rush -- it will be on the internet for YEARS!

And thank you! For the putting up with the lunacy and tardiness as well as everything else. (BTW, poor T! Head injuries always bleed madly, but they heal well!)
ecosopherecosopher on July 14th, 2011 02:14 pm (UTC)
it will be on the internet for YEARS!

And thank goodness for that! (not that I think it will take me that long to read it!!)

(Thank you for your kind thoughts. She's so completely fine, now, I can't believe it. I checked her head this evening and there's the tiniest little nick there still, but otherwise it's great. Good thing she heals so fast, considering her inherent clumsiness LOL )
Libbylibby_drew on July 14th, 2011 02:32 pm (UTC)
Four years, really? Where does the time go?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 14th, 2011 02:36 pm (UTC)
(I spent most of it finishing that one bloody story ...)
Libbylibby_drew on July 14th, 2011 02:51 pm (UTC)
*pat pat* It happens to the best of us.

I'm going on 9 years. The time goes byh quickly, doesn't it?

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MY DEAR UKELELE PLAYING BRAMMERS <3
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 14th, 2011 02:38 pm (UTC)
Thank you, daring! And yes, yes it does. And yet I am still SO FAR BEHIND in reading and writing and everything!!!

prone to mischief: Macaronstreacle_tartlet on July 14th, 2011 02:39 pm (UTC)
I like to think that I have a fairly decent vocabulary, but I simply do not have the words to express how much I adore you.

♥ Congratulations on fours years of fabulousness! Our corner of fandom would be a darker place without you, darling!

♥ We should definitely try to get that fest off the ground, even if it is just you, me, and chantefable!

♥ THAT CHART IS THE BEST OF ALL THINGS.

♥ I am trying not to make a lie out of one claim, that my sequels are completed in a more timely manner than yours...*stares nervously at Pomegranate sequel file*

blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 14th, 2011 02:49 pm (UTC)
I am stretching my arms out to their full orang-like extent and saying 'THIS MUCH!'

And yes, it would be HILARIOUS! Let's do it! So pleased you like the chart, I cackled the whole time I was writing it. And, darling, you have another THREE YEARS!
prone to mischief: Heinz Treacle Tartlettreacle_tartlet on July 14th, 2011 02:54 pm (UTC)
It has been almost two years since Pomegranate was first posted! D:

I cackled the whole time I was reading the chart! It totally made up for the fact that one of my very straight, male RL friends found and read part of my underage daddy!kink Arthur/Eames porn epic earlier tonight!

Why is it always the worst possible option that is stumbled upon?
Bubba: Magdaleneabsynthedrinker on July 14th, 2011 02:50 pm (UTC)
LOL! Your chart is perfection itself! Thanks for the giggle!

Peace,
Bubba

In real life, she is most of a foot taller and naturally blonde -- we look like the lesbians in QAF US when we are together, just with longer hair ;-)
Bubbaabsynthedrinker on July 17th, 2011 03:22 pm (UTC)
LOL! Now there's an image.

Peace,
Bubba

Happy Anniversary, you don't look a year over 3! what is your secret?
I have to say I always look forward to your postings (whatever the subject may be. I've learned more about Aus politics than I ever expected)
Enjoy!

Happy anniversary! and your advice is sound.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 17th, 2011 03:21 pm (UTC)
Work should always come first, that way you can read without guilt! ;-) And thank you!

By all the minor and majaor Arcane, this is soo helpful! At last I shall know right off the bat who it is and perhaps manage to guess correctly on the next damned poll (I do polls to keep myslef properly a Humble!Tiger only; for no other reason, as I never win:<)
Cheers to your aniversary and your very Major Accomplishment; I am proud of you, and also simply grateful you breathe daily, you write (at all!) and you're in fine fettle. Bloody CHEERS!

It contains guest appearances by Boris Johnson - snigger. :-)

I did tell you I was on the same flight as him one time didn't I? He's smaller than I thought and even blonder.

Highly entertaining read by the way. :-)
