Since I’m wrapping up my fifth Fic (something I thought I would never ever do) I figured it was time I revamp my prolife page too. I will properly introduce myself as, Elfchef. No, it’s not because I like to cook elves so have no fear or you Fair folk lovers. It’s because I had and still do have an unhealthy obsession with Legolas from Lord of the Rings and I love to cook and bake and BBQ. I’d try any dish just about once, twice if I really hate it. I really just love food and so with that in mind the name kind of popped into my head when I came here.
In between real life and my quirky imagination I write. When I found this site a little over a two years ago, I was hooked immediately. In that time the basics haven’t changed. I am still a lover of all things supernatural and I still think SVM universe is the best thing since sliced bread and pants with pockets. Yeah...I said it. Although I love, Harry Potter, twilight, Night Huntress, Dark hunter, Lords of the Underworld, Naruto, Black Dagger Brotherhood, Percy Jackson, Mortal Instruments and so many others.
From the birth of my first fic to this day, I've read a lot and learned a lot more. I got the amazing opportunity to express myself with the support of so many great people in this community, even the flamers and haters have their uses. So NEVER let them discourage you, they made me grow stronger as a writer (though they can still suck salt).
I’ve wrapped up what’s left of ‘Live, Life, Love Accidentally’ for all of you who I have kept waiting, and probably have a few choice words for me, I’m really sorry. Once it’s edited I’ll get out one of those monster postings I’m known for.
This is my page at wordperess.com For all of you who are following Landlord Escapes: http:// elfchef87. wordpress. com/2012 /07/08/ landlord- escapades/

Official posting date of my new Fic 'Beholden'. I've been working on it for a few months with my Beta Rebecca. I didn't want to put it out until I was sure where I was going with it. I also didn't want to risk falling out of love and not being able to finish it. Sadly, that did happen with 'Live, Life, Love Accidentally' I can't get it to a place where I'm entirely happy with it. So for now it's written but un-postable (at least in my opinion)
A short introduction into 'Beholden':
Being a telepathic barmaid is hard enough. Sookie Stackhouse doesn’t complain though. She has a normal life in her small town. It goes up in smoke when a fairy blackmails her into marrying a vampire; an alpha werewolf will stop at nothing to have her as the shaman for his pack; and then she falls in love with a weretiger. If that’s not enough, extremists are trying to kill her. So yeah, the woman’s got problems.
"While her obedience is a must agreement is not." Typical words of the worlds richest man, Eric Northman. He is a vampire with a slighter darker past than your average undead. For political purposes he requires a bride. Attachment and love and not things he feels, not for her. She has a part to play, nothing more; nothing less. Not an easy love story but then again love and life seldom are.
This fic is about walking the path to happiness and how it will often test your character, pit your mind against your heart, and force you to look between who you are and who you want to be.
Leave all your canon stuff at the door before you read this fic. I took a little bit of this and that to make the characters we know and love who they are, but there are differences, big ones. If you start reading while looking for things to compare and contrast to the book and Tru Blood…there’ll be too many to count (I wanted to spare you the time)*

Official release date of my new story, ‘The Huntsman’s Quarry’. Like always leave your cannon stuff at the door. This story is AU and told entirely from EPOV. I just find being in The Vikings head a lot more fun…though I’m not sure what that says about my mental state.
I like to do my best to let readers know what they are getting into so no one feels misled. I’m taking the time to illustrate some of the key differences. The major one is the role The Pythoness plays in the vampire world as well as Eric’s profession. The elements of vampire Kingdoms and hierarchy are present but are not essential to the plot.
All the characters we know and love are sprinkled in, in some way shape or form but I have also added a few of my own. For those of you who read ‘Beholden’ you know how funny my original characters can be, Cypher, Lynx, and barbecue, need I say more?
As usual I’ve been working on this for a good while my ‘Super Betas’ Ms. Buffi and Rebecca. Initially I was going to wait until the story was complete but I find that I missed you guys so very much. So here you are.
Excerpt from 'The Huntsman's Quarry':
People will have you believe that I am an arrogant smart mouth bastard on my best day and a degenerate brute any other time. Some said I got more willful with every passing decade; that I did what I wanted and my middle finger was proverbially extended to the world. So very hurtful and untrue might I add.
In reality, I’m an asshole with a great sense of humor that few people could appreciate. In addition, I wasn't a degenerate brute, I simply enjoyed a good bloody fight, a warm red drink, and a hot wet woman. See, they were entirely different things.

Been gone for a while but I haven’t been idle. With a that said, I have been hearing a lot of disturbing things about my favorite site that makes me sad. It also makes me unsure about whether this is the right place to debut my new story, titled ‘Twisted and Turned’ or T‘N’T. We’ll see what happens. To be safe I will be posting simultaneously of WordPress. The officially posting date will be tomorrow. I really hope you'll join me on another one of my adventures. See you then!
Short introduction into ‘Twisted and Turned’ begins with a poem by Dorothy Law Nolte called, Children Live What They Learn”
If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement he learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to
Find love in the world.
Excerpt from T‘N’T
I fell even deeper then, into a place where nothing and no one else mattered. Just like that a thousand years of solitude came to a sudden and absolute end, I was mated. Without a drop of her blood, without knowing her name or another single thing about her, I felt that truth rock the very core of the creature I was. I was night and she was day. My moon belonged to her sun.
“Princesses do not cry.” I said gently. “When they do, it must be in the rain. Anything less will mar her title.”
She nodded miserably and wiped her tears. Her face was turned up to me so I could see that she was, indeed, no longer crying. It was then I picked her up and held her to me. She clung on tight enough for me to feel the pressure of her tiny arms.
“They certainly do not shed tears for their subjects.” I continued, running my finger through her hair. “Her will is their duty. If it pleases her to cause them pain, then it should please them to suffer.”
“You help.” I pointed out, to Eric. “Can I stay with you instead?”
It didn’t think of the depths of my relationship with him before asking. His voice had stood out through the myriad of thoughts. It reached me, grounded me even as it frightened. No, I didn’t remember but he had still felt familiar. I wouldn’t have thought there was a difference but there was.
Nothing made sense but with his hand in mine I didn’t feel so at sea, I didn’t feel lost or alone.

Today is voting day but it is also the official posting day of 'Future Undone'. This is the sequel to Twisted and Turned. It picks up two years after and it begins with Sookie and Eric living their happily ever after. Then both their pasts resurfaces and it all goes to hell. It will be entirely from Sookie's point of view.
For those of you who are familiar with me you know, I'm good for action but I'm also good for angst. This story is a lot of both. Beholden is still one of my favorite works but this comes in close second, it's daring and gave me the confidence to let my story write itself. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I did writing.
I'm back working with Ms.Buffi. She really is a super beta and I have grown not only with the technical aspects of writing but with the way I tell stories. Thanks!
Excerpt from 'Future Undone'
...“What does your presence here mean?” I asked the Sky Prince.
It was obvious that he thought the journey through storyland would have clouded my mind. Yet, he didn’t seem disappointed. His face creased hinting toward a smile.
“It means that Fintan is my son,” He replied. “And I love him despite his very many, many flaws.”

It is Easter Sunday and I thought today is great day to begin posting Twisted and Turned III: Edge of Forever. If you haven't read the first two stories, you will get lost. I am going to skip the preliminaries because I know a lot of folks are anxious for me to get this out. I had truly hoped to have this out sooner but life has been kicking my ass. Having to take custody of my three year old nephew was just the beginning. Through all that, I never stopped writing (Probably kept me sane) I just couldn't write as much as I wanted to.
I am known for spoiling readers with multiple chapters and monster postings, that will not be happening with this. Sorry, I'm asking you guys to please be patient with me.
Excerpt from 'Edge of Forever'
..."Caleb," Ashley sobbed. "He said if I did not do as he said he would have me deported, and he had friends that would find me and do worse to me every night until forever."
It was times such as these that Sookie knew she was really nothing but clockwork inside. Her thoughts weren't on the deep, personal pain or the shame that was common for rape victims. All Sookie could think of was how anyone had thought such an asinine threat to be credible.
For what Caleb thought was a just a pawn, he wouldn't invest that much time. He would just end her. Sookie just didn't understand it."
