So tonight's activities resulted in two bridge2sickbay
ficlets and a batch of seriously delicious chocolate cookies.
The B2S theme for this week was poetry quotes.
I wasn't familiar with either of the quotes when I read them at the comm, so the fics were inspired by the line(s) alone. I googled the poems after the fact to find out where the lines came from.( To Share a Journey, Gaila/Pike, PG )
***( Warmth, Spock/Uhura, G )
So, yes. I feel absurdly proud to have produced anything at all tonight. I've been struggling all week, wanting write and yet not typing a single keystroke. So yes, glad to have anything at all to show for my weekend :)
My cookies are excellent as well :) Far more polished an attempt than the ficlets, by far :) I used a recipe recommended by wesleysgirl
which can be found here
only without using the buttercream to make them into sandwiches. I've found that while I adore
the cookie part itself, I stink at making buttercream frosting (when I tried the recipe originally it wouldn't stiffen up and was gooey and messy and grainy and just overall terrible). So I left it out and nommed nicely tonight on lovely chocolate coffee cookies. Half the batch is tucked away into the cookie jar and the other half is packed up to take to work for my coworkers to descend upon like a ravening horde.
Back to bridge2sickbay
for a moment. A couple of my prompts were posted but not filled. I am reposting them here to a) hopefully encourage someone to write them for me *pleading eyes* or, if need be, b) remember them for some undisclosed time in the future to try out myself.
