A banner post!

Well, I'm trying my hand at making a banner for the LuRe Big Bang story that my friend, Lisa, wrote from my prompt. I've never made a banner before, so this is just a test.


I wish I had PhotoShop to make it easier. Maybe next time!

I think you did a great job!

Thank you, Yvonne.

If I had to make a bet on who would be the first to comment, I would have picked you. You are always so kind in giving positive feedback to everyone in this community. I really appreciate it since I've never done anything like this before. ♥

Heres the added bonus....I tell the truth too :)
Hugs and Kisses

That makes your comments even more special, my dear. *hugs you tight*

I'm not familiar with these people, but I had to stop by to say you did an amazing job. It looks just awesome. :)

Now, back I go into my corner to work on 'My Bodyguard'. Phew almost finished too. Lol.

Thanks, hon! It's from "As The World Turns", the American soap that went off the air last year. The couple is Luke Snyder (Van Hansis) and Dr. Reid Oliver (Eric Sheffer Stevens--AMAZING actor!!). They actually let them fall in love and then they killed Reid with a train on the last week of the show! ugh! Such a waste of a beautiful couple.

I got into Brian and Justin to get over the tragedy. And you can guess that they certainly helped! ;) Gale heals all wounds.

Yay! My Bodyguard! Get off my Journal and get back to writing, lady. LOL ♥

Ahhhh okay, I've heard of them. I recently discovered a couple from a German Soap called Verotene Liebe (Forbidden Love) that I've had to watch in sub titles - Christian & Oliver. I hate sub titles, but they are so worth it. Amazing! Some friends have compared them to that story, except the German soap is a little more explicit.

I started on LJ writing Brokeback Mountain and stumbled on Brian & Justin by chance. Well, there was no turning back. Lol. Yes, Gale heals all wounds. Now I can't help but to cheer him on as the evil Charles in TSC. Lol.

Yes, My Bodyguard should be up within the next couple of hours barring any untimely interruptions. :)

I watched a bit of Christian and Oliver right before I found Brian and Justin, and they were very sweet. But seriously, does ANYTHING else compare to B/J?! It's impossible.

I'm loving Gale as the evil Charles Meade. I can't wait for more. He's going to be so delicious in that role.

I'm trying to get some work done right now so I can read the new chapter when you post. :))))
Sep. 18th, 2011 11:39 pm (UTC)
I do adore Christian & Oliver, but you're right nothing compares to Brian & Justin. Ever!

I have a crossover fic in progress that will be Charles, Brian, Justin and a little of Ethan. How I bring them together is a secret. But, I'll say Charles is extremely evil in this. I have the first chapter done. I will post as soon as my banner is ready. I am crazy writing all these stories. After watching the pilot I just couldn't resist. Lol.
Sep. 18th, 2011 11:45 pm (UTC)
Ooooh, please promise me that Charles kills Ethan in your story... or at least let him torture the fiddler! ;)

I'm nervous that we saw a lot of Charles in the pilot because they had so much to set up. Now I think they might focus on the kids, and one or two storylines each week. We might only see a Charles plot every 4th week or so. Although my fingers are crossed that he's in every episode.

I need to get over to pfodge's page and snag some SC icons. ♥
Sep. 18th, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
Hmmmm, I'll just say that Ethan might be in Charles' way for what he plans. And, I think we know how Charles feels about obstacles. Haha.

I was too excited how much we seen of Charles in the pilot. I think the scenes were vital to setting up how dangerous he is, but I hope it carries forward. He has now more than proven how amazing of an actor he is. My banner is finished, but I'm going to get Bodyguard up first. I know a few people might be waiting on that one. Lol.

Oh, JoJo, I love it! So beautiful, our boys <3
Sep. 18th, 2011 11:29 pm (UTC)
Oh sweetheart, I emailed it to you before, I was so excited when I finished. Although, when I look at it, I only see my mistakes. I'm trying to find a way to get rid of the flashing words and just have it 'glittery'.

I don't think any of our LRO friends are going to see it yet. Mostly it's my QAF friends here. But I'll take it down if you think it's not close enough to the BB.
Sep. 18th, 2011 11:38 pm (UTC)
Don't you dare take it down! It's perfect just the way it is and I can't wait for people to see it. Now that the story is done (except for any editorial changes), I think it's time to build some hype and this banner does just that!
Sep. 19th, 2011 12:37 am (UTC)
Yay! I was really worried. And your opinion is really the most important one.

I can't really look at the story tomorrow since it's Demi Lovato day with the girls, and then I have to race back from the City to teach CCD. But Tuesday morning, it's #1 on my list! Although I think it's already perfect.

*hugs you*

LRO friend peeking in...I think it looks FANTASTIC, seriously! I would not have any idea how to create something like this. And might I assume that magic's stupendous BB fic is going to be western-themed? Oh my heart! I'm giddy to read this!!!
Sep. 19th, 2011 12:43 am (UTC)
Awww, Jacob. It's so nice to have everyone commenting. I'm really excited about this story. You should be giddy, Lisa did an amazing job!

By the way, I was loading photos into my Photobucket account when I realized that you could edit them. After some painful trial and error, I managed to pull that banner together. You just have to do it layers. Are you writing a story for the BB, too? ♥
Sep. 19th, 2011 01:01 am (UTC)
I've just figured out collages in Photobucket - I suspect that layers will vex me for a while! Yes, I am doing a BB fic. It's called "Trip the Light Fantastic".
Sep. 19th, 2011 01:33 am (UTC)
I cheated and went to read all the story synopses the authors posted for the artists, and I'm dying to read so many of the fics!

Is yours the one with Luke traveling to Chicago with the landscaper? That one sounds awesome! ♥
Sep. 19th, 2011 01:44 am (UTC)
Yes, that's mine! I'm a little stuck but am going to power through it this week. I hope it won't disappoint. It has a bit of a fairytale flair, which I hope will be fun.
Sep. 19th, 2011 08:19 am (UTC)
Oooh - exciting! The banner looks great x
Sep. 19th, 2011 11:40 pm (UTC)
Hey lady!! I'm glad you saw the banner. Thank you for the compliment.

By the way, should I be kicking your butt with the BB? Have you been writing? Do you need to send me stuff? ♥

Sep. 20th, 2011 12:49 am (UTC)
Yes, you probably should - although I might crumple into a crying heap ... will try and send you something asap (yes, I have been writing). Didn't want to bother you while you were still clearing up after Irene x
Sep. 20th, 2011 04:37 pm (UTC)
It's no bother! We've done all the cleanup we can do. Now we wait for the insurance company claim and then deal with the 'rebuild'. It's funny because I didn't want to push you! LOL I'd love to help you out any way I can. I'll read it over and see if you are missing words or look for typos, etc.
Sep. 19th, 2011 10:38 am (UTC)
First time? Are you kidding? The banner is beautitul.
You did a wonderful job.

Love the sparkling writing and the colors.
Sep. 19th, 2011 11:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much Pam!! I really appreciate it. ♥
