Meme going around my flist like mad. Tagged by the lovely (and evil) [ profile] pooh_collector

For the next five days talk about three positive things about your day. I'm posting yesterday's things this morning, as yesterday afternoon I was driving back to PA from DC & when I got back had to finish some grading & unpack & feed and medicate His Imperial Majesty. I shall endeavor to do today's list tonight.

1. Fandom Meet-up - Friends old and new. I won't list individual names, because I'm bound to forget someone and then I'd feel really guilty, but it was wonderful to see familiar faces and also to put names to faces for folks I'd not met in person before. Thanks to everyone who made their way to DC (okay Fairfax, VA) to share the love of White Collar (and other fannish interests), play writing games, and keep the wait staff at the Logan's on their toes. Safe travels to those of you making your way home today (and tomorrow, Pooh).

2. Fandom Meet-up - Words! I had a horrific semester last spring, during which I had no time to write, and unfortunately the writing doldrums largely carried over into (and through) the summer. I had to leave the meet-up earlier than I'd like (work calls), but I wrote two short pieces during the picture prompt games, one of which may end up having a sequel, and I feel inspired to finish off the drabble/time-stamp meme I started last May/June.

3. Coming home to a purring cat. I'm sure he probably spends most of his time sleeping when I'm away, but I always miss my kitty, and as much as I didn't want to leave the fun and creativity of hanging out with fandom friends, it's better when you come home to a loving ball of fur who climbs onto your lap and butts his head on you and purrs aggressively. Not that I dote on my cat, or anything.

Meanwhile, I am trying to figure out which friends are already doing this and which aren't. I tag [ profile] sahiya and [ profile] tjs_whatnot (it was lovely meeting you both).

Somewhere along the line I lost track of this meme and ended up getting stuck at day 5. But I'm back! Aren't you all happy? :-)

Once again, here are the days:

1. Something old
2. Something new - talk about a new fanwork of yours!
3. Something you made for someone else
4. Something you made just for yourself
5. Something for a large fandom/pairing/character
6. Something for a small fandom/pairing/character
7. Something you're just really proud of

I was kind of stuck on #6, since I currently only write in White Collar, and I don't really write many different pairings. But I figure I can link to a few short stories focusing on minor and/or less used characters. There are four ficlets in these two LJ entries, featuring Blake, Satchmo, Neal and June. Feel free to ignore the Neal one for the purposes of this post. :-)

The Blake and Satchmo fics are found here, and the June fic is here (the Neal one as well, but, well, see the comment above).

The description of the fics from my Masterlist:
The stories on these two pages don't have anything to do with each other.  I just had four ficlets (from the Promptfest that was running at the time), and had to split them into two posts.  Probie Blake gets a pick me up from Jones (341).  Satchmo's POV on trouble brewing with Neal (570). A possible future for Neal and Peter (Peter thought he could change Neal - could he?) (675). June is a collector of beautiful things (67 words of sentence fic).
