My journal is 'Friends Only', but that's simply so that I don't get randoms coming along reading about my personal life. If you know me from a community, or have found my journal and think we could get along, then please feel free to add me.

All I ask is that you comment on this entry, so I know where you're from. I'll add you back if we have enough common interests.

These things are going around Tumblr and when I saw there was no Dragon Age one, I couldn't resist making one ... and of course, I had to share it here!

Suggestions, or requests for characters I’ve missed are welcome. Enjoy guys!

Origin: Hawke
Lover: Cailan
Best Friend: Alistair
Enemy: Sebastian
Has a Crush on you: Carver
Cockblocked by: Aveline

I’m very amused by this. Cailan was my first DA crush, and who wouldn’t love being BFFs and Lover with the Theirin boys. I’m am, however, way creeped out by the fact my Origin is Hawke and Carver has a crush on me! >_<

I know I don't talk about my writing on here much any more, because I have my wiring blog, Clare Dugmore Writes, but as I'm doing the A-Z blogging challenging, and want more people to know about my novel, I thought I'd share my posts here too.

If you don't care about my novel, feel free to ignore the posts for this month (though hopefully I can get a real life update written too).

Okay, on with A ...
"If we're going to defend the facility and stop Irie breaking William out, wouldn't it be useful if we knew the history of the centre?" Maggie said.

Nola snorted and rolled her eyes. "You can't find the answer to everything in a book."

"No, but your sister does have a good point. Sebastian, would the PID system have any information on the Arc?" Betty said.

"You know, it might. I remember this orientation video when I first joined that gave a history of the facilities. Let me see if I can find it in the archives." Sebastian crossed the warehouse that was their living area and went to the computer desk.

I'm sure some of you will know that in the writing industry it's very hard to get your name out there, and will appreciate the importance of helping out other up-and-comers. If anyone want to get anywhere with their writing, promotion and getting more followers is part of the process.

That's what I'm here to do today.

My husband runs his own website reporting video games news, reviewing video games and writing editorials about the gaming industry. He's done everything off his own back, and has gotten contacts with some big name video game publishers, as well as advertisers.

However, the site and community still needs to grow. He needs more traffic so that he can get bigger advertising revenues, so that we can pay the bills! LOL

All I ask is that you check out the site. I understand life is busy, and you've probably got enough sites to follow etc. But my hope is if enough people check out VGI then someone will find something they like on there, and it will become a site they follow regularly.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and for checking out Video Games Interactive.

Characters & Pairing(s): Wynne, Solona Amell, with background Solona/ Alistair
Rating: Teen - no graphic violence or language, references to canon but not as graphic as the actual game.
Warnings/Contains: Non.
Length: 8,033
Summary: Throughout her life Solona Amell has faced many challenges and changes. From simple village girl to Circle Mage, from Circle Mage to the new Grey Warden recruit, and to finally becoming one of the last two Wardens in Ferelden. And through it all one woman has been a constant source of comfort and wisdom for Solona, that woman is Wynne, and this story shows a brief snippet of the bond they share.
Disclaimer: I don't oen Dragon Age, the world its set in or any of its characters. These all belong to Bioware and I'm merely borrowing them for entertainment purposes.
A/N: Originally written for the Women of Dragon Age character challenge.
Thanks to my Hubby for the beta, encouragement and advice. Orignally this piece was meant to cover all of Solona's life, and the influence Wynne had on it. However, I found myself running out of time, so sadly this only covers half of what I had planned. Hopefully in the future I can go back and add the other six scenes I had in mind. This is my first venture into the Dragon Age fandom, and I found I loved it. Hopefully this will be the start of a new world of writing for me. I hope anyone reading finds something they enjoy in the story.

I'm sorry, I know its short notice with only twelve days before the dead line. I'd very much love anyone who can pick this up and give it the once over for me.

Pen Name: wandaxmaximoff 
Rating of the story: Mature/ NC-17
Spoilers/Time Line: Spoilers up until the end of HBP
Pairing: Draco Malfoy/Asteria Greengrass
Beta Type: SpaG mostly, but anything else you think needs work please point it out.
Harshness: Honest and constructive without being harsh. I'm more than happy to listen and willing to learn where I can make improvements. But I won't have my story picked apart for no good reason.
Warning: Under age sex (both parties are around 15-16)
Extras:  This is for the fest deflower_draco, so I can't go into too much detail, but the basic jist is draco finding solace as he battles with his demons in his sixth year. I appreciate that this is short notice, and I'm asking a lot requesting a 7k fic to be looked at 12 days before the dead line, but I'd really love someone to give it the once over.

If you've got the time please let me know in the comments, and thanks in advance. ^_^

Through the Flames is a new community for sufferers of mental health problems, or their family/ friends/ significant other, designed to act as a support group.

Sometimes, for no reason and through no fault of anyone, life sucks and we all need to let off steam, vent and rant about what's pissed us off.

Through the Flames offers a place where people can come - regardless of race, nationality, gender, social class or sexuality - to talk to other like-minded people, who may have experienced something similar themselves. 

So please, if you suffer from mental health problems, or know someone who does, come along and check out the community. And remember to spread the word, too. More members mean more shared experiences.

“All I have to offer you are my ears for listening and my shoulder for you to cry on. I consider us all blessed, for we are given two of each so that we may help others, just as we have helped you.”
