Here we are then, the sticky post I so dreaded making, because my html skillz fail at life.
This is really fairly purposeless, I'm just going to actually get around to introducing myself and saying that all the personal stuff on this journal is f-locked, but all the fic will stay open to the general public. Obviously, I'd still be happy if you friend me :D
So, hi, my name is liadan, but feel free to call me anything you like. Real name Helen, but I've suffered enough Helen of Troy, Mount St. Helens, and helicopter jokes to be very, very fine with anything else. I'm almost definitely younger than you, although I suppose it's silly to put that in a sticky post because I will get older, but anyway.
My hobbies include reading, writing, watching too much TV, singing show tunes and 80's hits badly in the shower, pina coladas and getting caught--
That stopped being funny when they used it in Shrek.
Never mind, then. So, that's me, overly talkative, multi-fandom fic writer who finally has a sticky post announcing half friends-only. Excitement, I know...

[FIC] Let Nothing Ye Dismay for KyoKohitsuji
Spoilers: Up to about 6x08, then goes a bit AU
Summary: Dean’s not too sure about Christmas, but he’s learning to be sure about Cas.
Author notes: Some unexpected things happened that majorly blocked the writing process for this, hope it's readable anyway. Was for the deancas_xmas exchange
“What do you want?” Cas asks.
[FIC] White Blank Page
Word Count: ~2800
Notes/Prompt(s): For Secret Angels IV. Chuck's getting some visions of Dean and Castiel that he's not entirely comfortable with, but he has no choice but to write it all down. Can be cracky humor or serious.
Summary: In which Chuck dithers, Cas exceeds expectations, Dean’s not talking about it and Sam is just trying not to think about it.
Here a few things Chuck knows that his readers don't:
No, seriously. If you're into fantasy and/or fairy tales, if you like character-oriented books, if you know what it's like to have your parents at odds with each other or what it's like to have someone else's presence coming between you and someone you love - read it.
And if you aren't, if you don't and if you haven't, read it anyway, because you'll learn something.
It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.
RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)
REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.
Don't usually do this sort of thing, but this is a fucking good cause and I will support it as loudly and in-your-face-ly as I can (in a polite, nice, hey-there-us-lgbtqa-people-are-really-aw
I mean, gay people can make out in public all the time and when they are confronted with homophobia once in a blue moon, everyone cares and it gets resolved. AIDS tests take a day. Dirk Bach can be your pastor when you get married. You only ever have two kinds of medical conditions: the cute cold that your boyfriend/girlfriend will nurse you back to health from, and the SERIOUS PROBLEM that will put you in hospital but ultimately be resolved unless you don't get good ratings. People can easily bounce between being bi and gay; roommates come and go like the seasons; if you had a nurturing family your siblings will suck and if you have crap parents you'll have a cool aunt; that twin sister you always dreamed of when you were eight is real and working in a restaurant is AWESOME!
Seriously, Verbotene Liebe. Düsseldorf, a, is not actually like this, b, the No Limits would not have this many visitors if the boss is constantly making out with his boyfriend and their friends are having enormous arguments in there all the time.
But somehow, Christian and Olli are adorable. I'm putting this down to the actors. Hands shaking, stuttering over vows, putting a tiny bit of realism into the cheesiest vows in existence.
Really, though, this is something I've noticed. Christian and Olli and their white wedding, sort of, okay. Ted on How I Met Your Mother? Tom from 500 Days of Summer? Is the rugged Dean Winchester type out and the Train-slash-Ted-Moseby type in? Why, God, why?
Okay. I will now stop talking about obscure German soap operas.
Even if they do have one of the cutest gay couples I have ever seen on television.
Disclaimer: Not mine
Warnings: AU, fairy tale retelling, fairly dark, off-screen rape of a minor character, physical and psychic abuse, sensitive subject material.
Summary: Loosely based on Grimm’s Cinderella. Once upon a time, a merchant’s wife gave birth to a little boy named Castiel, who was perfect in all ways, right down to the beautiful black wings sprouting out of his back. However, in a country still fighting the phobia of human-to-animal shapeshifters, not everyone agrees, and when his mother dies, Castiel is left at the hands of his stepfather Zachariah, who doesn’t condone non-human traits despite being part-bird himself. And then there’s Dean, the only friend Castiel has in the world, who thinks Castiel’s wings are awesome, but is hiding a few problems of his own.
