Btw, since I mentioned it yesterday, look what I found in my files :):



Now, brain, THAT is neat management of locations. Can you please provide something like that for JC now as well?

So, before I start posting the new version of Sport of Kings – I’m hoping that this’ll be at the beginning of the week, I’m just waiting to hear back from my beta – I thought a bit of a pic spam might be in order. Just to introduce the extended cast... and since when do I need an excuse to post pictures of pretty people? Here they are then, followed by a couple of links about horse racing and stuff, just so I have it all in one place :). Enjoy the pretties!

Sport of Kings – Picture Post )

So I FINALLY bought a new saddle and need to share my new pride and joy with you. I just now bought it on ebay and can't wait to have it send to me but I'll share the pics I got already because I am all w00t about it right now:


My Passier )

Speaking of the mare, my poor darling had a sore knee on Monday and yesterday and today I had to save her from a rather too forward mare who thought that it was PLAY TIME!!1! and completely ignored Kira's panicking. Great way to spend an afternoon, I can tell you, to throw yourself between two horses and have the over eager one choosing you to be the new victim playmate and rise right in front of you...

(Relatedly, yes, I am STILL working on SoK and for some reason it just keeps growing and I keep re-writing even old scenes. Something is wrong with my porn skills though, instead of writing proper steaming sex I just keep adding face-to-face time with the horses. What exactly does that say about me...?)

And to end this the way I think every post on LJ should end: SAM + G = &hearts - Oh, they can't possibly get any more adorable, can they?

Hi everyone :).

To all the horse people on my flist: I just got my tax return today and decided to invest the 800 € I'm getting back into a new saddle. I'm riding with a Wintec Pro Isabell Werth dressage saddle at the moment and while its a nicely cut saddle it's Wintec and therefore not leather. My absolute favourite saddle has always been the Stübben Romanus dressage saddle but sadly it's out of production. Anyone of you riders have any recs for a good saddle? I only ever ride with dressage only ones (even though I only go hacking) with minimal padding under the kneeroll (just like the Romanus). I don't really fancy the newer Stübben models but do like the look of the Passier Grand Gilbert... Thoughts anyone?

Relatedly - and by that I mean woho horses again - SoK 2.0 is up to 67k now and for some reason it just keeps GROWING, damnit. I shall finish it before the next millenium, I suppose...

Completely not related to horses: Has anyone watched "In Plain Sight"? I just finished the first season and I don't know what to make of it - while I like the premise and the leading characters, i.e. the marshalls, I kind of am rather fed up with all that annoying family story, particularly Mary's mother. Anyone?

Note to self: Sport of Kings is not going to rewrite itself. If you spend your entire morning watching old Grand National videos on youtube this may be good for your heartrate but not for your wordcount. Just saying.

But, people. Just tell me that watching Red Rum winning the 1973 Grand National isn't about the best way to spend one's Sunday morning. I dare you.



(Hope you all have a great weekend :))

Two posts in one day, aren't I prolific? - This is directed to all my fellow Orlibeaners on my flist!

Since my muses and I are having this sort of epic clash of the titans headlock thing going on - meaning I still don't seem to be able to write anything new - I decided to go about it another way, i.e. trick them into obedience, and do something I've been thinking about for at least the last two years. Re-writing "Sport of Kings", that story about sex in the tack room Bean and his dog Orlando in tight breeches steeplechasing I wrote a few years back.

The original story will stay up where it is, partly because knowing me I will never finish this re-write project anyway... and partly because I reckon it's still alright as it is (minus some really embarrassing typos, ahem). The reason for me wanting to re-write is that while I still kind of like the story overall, I've always felt that it was lacking a few background things and more sex detail here and there and whatnot. Well, that and the whole tricking the muses into cooperating again.

My reason for telling you all this - aside from this totally being my own personal 'you need to get on this now' post...: If you read the story back then is there anything you think should have been / be added? Anything in terms of additional scenes, background info etc.? Or is there anything you think should be changed partly or completely (or deleted) - and yeah, this is a very loud call out for concrit :). - Even if you're not even sure you'd want to read a SoK 2.0 (which, so far, seems to want to be at least twice as long as the original...) I'd really appreciate the input.

Thanks guys!

Title: You say it best – Sequel to ‘Sport of Kings’
Fandom / Pairing: Sean Bean / Orlando Bloom, racing au
Rating: PG, a bit of h/c included – because it’s SoK ;).
Disclaimer: All made up.
Word Count: 2.255
A/N: This sets well after the events of "Sport of Kings". In case you haven’t read that one: It sets in British horseracing, Sean’s a trainer and Orlando’s his stable jockey.
Dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] amygirl who wanted to know about the horsemen’s future. And to [livejournal.com profile] giselleslash because she rocks my world.

It was mid season and with races practically every day, big events almost every weekend Orlando really didn't have time for anything else but riding and winning races. And normally he could easily think of way better things to do with his sparse freetime than sitting on the old wooden bench behind Sean's house. Staring gloomily at the shadows of horses, moving on the paddock in the twilight. )

The week of doooom turned into a week of – *scratches head* well, ‘doom’ with even more ‘o’s. Because after having survived all the things RL had to offer stupid fucking T-Online decided to cut off our internet for two entire weeks. Grrrrr. I’m not going into detail how much I want them to die a very, very painful and slow death for that (which was btw ENTIRELY their fault, not ours) and will just tell you that I have suffered from LJ withdrawal big time and probably have to do a day’s worth of catching up with my flist…

The internet disaster was even more tragic since I had quite a bit of free time over the week ends. But after pitying myself a good deal I finally got my pencil out again and did a bit of doodling. Under the cut you’ll find a few sketches of Sean and / or Orlando and /or horses since all of the pics are inspired by “Sport of Kings” :).

Not dial up friendly – hope you guys like some of the pics.

Illustrations for Sport of Kings (Sean Bean / Orlando Bloom) – five drawings and two manips )

Horse related book recs on top )

Last but not least: The lovely [livejournal.com profile] irrlicht74 posted the latest chapters of our Banabloom "University" AU and guess what? It's finally NC17 :). You can find the chapters here and here ENJOY!


All in all: I’M SO GLAD TO BE BACK ONLINE *bounces* I’m trying to catch up with all your journals asap but if there’s something you posted within the last weeks that you think I really, really need to see it would be splendid if you just left me a link to it here. Ta!

I’m still alive. Barely, because my nose feels like a big slime monster crawled into it and died there. In other words: Flu. Also: Big time stress to no end and the next week will be known to future generations as the week of DOOOOOM. But yeah, still alive. And I’ve finished my thesis on KoH – well, almost – and graded the class test that was long over due.

I got two reasons for sneaking away from the truckload of work waiting for me. The first one is this:

Isn’t it fucking AWESOME? [livejournal.com profile] lorielen made it for my story Sport of Kings and I love it so so much that of course I need to show it off here :).
Look at how adorable Orlando looks, his hair all messed up like he’s just taken off his jockey helmet (or had a good long fuck…) and aw, that look on his face *melts*. And Sean! *howls* Of course Bark would never ever wear a stubble like that, being all serious trainer-bloke-like, which obviously means that this picture is taken after three days of not-getting-out-of-bed-at-all. Which sorta explains that grin on his face… And look at the colours and the picture of the horses and the quote (okay, I admit being that self involved…) – it all is so perfectly “Sport of Kings”, isn’t it? Thank you so much, Lori, this is beyond wonderful! *prints it out and does dirty things to it*

Okay, I’m done with the gushing now. No, wait, my second topic involves a lot of drooling, too (what a surprise). It's been a while since I've been reccing fic here and somehow it makes me feel like having collected Panini stickers for months without owning an album to put them into (do people outside Germany collect Panini sticker? *is clueless*)

ANYWAY. Vigbean. Orlibean. Sharpe. There:

Time for three recs )

Last but not least: [livejournal.com profile] lorielen posted a bunch of lovely icons in the campaign to make hotmensex a LJ interest. *licks her Beanie butt icon*

Thank you all for reading and encouraging me to go on with this little story, the characters have grown to mean way too much to me and I’m happy that I was allowed to share the lurve with you. Okay, I’ll stop with the sappiness now and skip straight to the porn :). – I used a quote from “Knight’s tale” in this part, kudos to anyone who spots it :).
