Update of OTT delayed

Unfortunately Chapter 29 isn't going to ready in time for my typical Friday update schedule. It's turning out to be a really long chapter. It may be middle of next week before it's ready, but I hope the wait will be worth it!

Stripped, by EJ Santry

Geekward + tattoos = pantysplosion!

I've mentioned Beth (EJ Santry) on my blog before, because she provided some much-needed support and research assistance on my AoE entry. She has written an entry for the Tattward and Inkella contest, and it's HAWT!

Entry for the Tattward & Inkella Contest. When the A/C goes out in
the computer lab during Summer Quarter, things begin to heat up as the
students begin to strip to get comfortable. What lies underneath might cause
them to combust. AH. BxE.

Holy mother. Geekward is fuckhot and there's not even a whiff of angst in this story - just sweet, unadulterated math-fuelled lust. If tatts, math, and Geekward do it for you, you need to read this story.

In the story header you will also find the link to the Tattward/Inkella contest where you can find the other sexy submissions!

As Much As I Ever Could, by City and Colour

I have listened to this song almost constantly for the last week while writing chapter 28 of OTT. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Have you seen this movie? My friend Val recommended it to me a couple of months ago and I watched it last month. It's an absolutely beautiful story of a young California man discovering who he is, what he wants, and how he's going to make it happen. It has nothing to do with OTT, except that the main character is gay. I just can't say enough about it. The movie is dramatic, and heartbreaking in places, but never heavy-handed in dialogue or direction.

Begin Again, by C-Me-Smile

You have already seen Christie's username on my blog, as she sent me some fan art last week. Girlfriend has been holding out on me! At the recommendation of a friend, I checked out a one-shot slash fic written by Christie, called Begin Again.

It is amazing. It completely gutted me. It's not a long story, but the imagery and emotions are utterly exquisite. I've told Christie that I hope she will continue to write, and have placed her on my author alerts in hopes that she does.

OTT mentioned on the Twigasm inaugural podcast

The newest Twilight fanfic podcast to hit the fandom - and it's not for the faint of heart or the under-18 crowd. Twigasm is the creation of four respected Twilight fanfic authors - Alice, Christina, Moi, and Nina; and the women provide a raunchy and hilarious commentary on what's going on the world of fan fiction on a weekly basis.

The inaugural episode, available for download on iTunes and streaming on the Twigasm site, features psymom, the creator of the Twilighted fanfic site; and I'm honoured (okay, I brought the squee when I heard) that Over The Top was recommended by both Christina and Moi.

I don't mind telling you that podcast listening is often a painful experience for me - this applies to all podcasts, regardless of subject, length or production quality - but I laughed out loud multiple times and thoroughly enjoyed their production. Well done, women; and thanks for the props.

Simply gorgeous! Thank you! xoxo
