Despite the rough start to the week, I had a good birthday! I went to see one of my favourite musicians, I had good times with friends, it was all lovely.

AND, to icing on the cake, it's Thanksgiving this weekend, which means that it's a long weekend and I get Monday off of work. The nice thing about Thanksgiving in Canada is that it's not a big deal like it is in the states - it's a nice sort of harvest celebration, but you don't necessarily have to do anything special if you don't feel like it. 

So, I'm kicking around, not doing much this weekend... and I just finished writing the demented'verse fic that I was working on (still in the process of posting though, I didn't want to overwhelm people's AO3 notifications.)... which means that it suddenly feels like I have a lot of time on my hands, though I'm sure I don't actually and I'm just forgetting a whole bunch of crap I have to do.

Which all got me to thinking... I used to do prompt-me-anything posts whenever I had a day off work. LJ has since died a lot in the intervening years, and I'm not getting nearly the traffic that I used to back in the day though, so perhaps prompt posts won't work anymore. It's a shame, they were fun - I got the trifecta'verse out of them back in the day... also possibly a few of my other AO3 stories... and that one time I crossed over the demented'verse with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (something I still partially consider canon.)

I don't know where I'm going with this - maybe, two questions:

1. Do you think it's possible to still have prompt-me-anything posts on LJ or do you think those days are gone?

Belated happy birthday! I never realised Canada had a Thanksgiving...

Ooh prompt fic! Mmm let me think. How about:

1. During the year Dean thinks Sam's in the cage, getting drunk in a bar with a taciturn, shaggy-haired guy with a metal arm

2. Dean or Sam piss off some faeries, shenanigans ensue

OMG! CROSSOVER! You know the way to my heart... stay tuned!

And yes, Canadian Thanksgiving is the second Monday of October, and just a celebration of the harvest ending (no stories of pilgrims or whatnot). So, yeah, some people do the whole thanksgiving turkey, potatoes, etc... but it's not like a mandatory family holiday football/pre-game-Christmas that you guys have.

It's why when Dark Side of the Moon aired, I was like "why is it such a big deal that Sam spend thanksgiving with a friend's family? It's just thanksgiving, no one cares." And then all the Americans were like "OMG CULTURAL THING!" And I was like "Ah."

And thanks for the belated birthday wishes :)
