One of the few things that would make me crawl from my blogging grave (ala Season 6 Buffy) is the birthday of gloss ! I even coerced thebunny into joining Dreamwidth.
I adored Book of Daniel from the first moment I read it. I couldn't wait for the next chapter to appear on UCSL. While I was at a trade show, I even paid $20 at an internet kiosk to check my e-mail and see if a new chapter was up. I was an unabashed fangirl. Then came the first Writercon auction and gloss was one of the authors up for auction. I had to win that auction. I did and when I received her first e-mail, I was more than a bit starstruck.
Six years later, she has written some amazing stories for me. From Touring Wonderland to Backstreet Driver in a Car of Love (and everything in between), her writing always brings me joy, but the stories that she has written for me are like my treasures.
Along the way, I have also gotten to know her as a person and I am honored to call her a friend. I am a better, smarter person for knowing her.
Happy Birthday, gloss ! You rock my world!
