Goes without saying, but... needs to be said:

If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

*Hugs all around*

Fic later.

"Coming out" as a Potter fan. (Yes, I realize how melodramatic and trite that sounds.)

I'm not quite sure how to begin broaching this subject. Perhaps I'm just not as eloquent today as I was two days ago, or will be tomorrow. But it has to start somewhere, and I'm in the mood to write it (that is pensive and slightly melancholy and in want for talking to my flist), so why not do it in the here and now?

If you read all of that you get a cookie.

And now, I'd like to open up discussion:

Have you told anybody how deep your Potter obsession runs? Why or why not? What are your thoughts on the Potterverse, fandom, real life, etc?

Feel free to leave as many comments as necessary. I enjoy coming home to spam after work.

Overdue scribblings because I can't post anything on time.

I have three assignments that I really should be working on (actually, truth be told, I was working on yours, melusinahp, but...I needed a break. Draco was making my brain cave in because he was pouting and being a right uncooperative brat), but instead, I've been messing about with a bunch of drunk!angsty!Marauders. (Don't worry, lavillanueva, no het! You can look! No Harry/Draco, het!) See for yourself:

Collapse )

As always, comments are love.

Funny. I never used to like the Marauders, let alone read or write them. Look what fandom's done to me: I can't get the buggers out of my brain.

More to come of the soon.

I feel like I should be posting more than just fic in here, y'know, stuff that happens outside the realm of contemplating what the fuck happens to these characters when we walk away from the story. But I'm always working on fic. Or so it would seem.

Public Service Announcement: Eee! Widdle!Dan, Rupert & Emma.

Bored on this night celebrating the birth of our nation? Have no fear! "Sorcerer's Stone" is on ABC Family Channel.

I'll probably watch after Quidditch starts up. Horror of horrors, I actually haven't seen it the whole way through, because whoever was putting it up on YouTube crapped out after Wood teaches Harry about Quidditch, or said, "Y'know what? Fuck this, I quit." (Srsly, lame.) I've seen CoS through OotP, but not the beginnings. Hm. I'm sure there's something Freudian there, but I'm far too lazy to analyze.

Just thought I'd give ya'll a head's up.

Happy Independence Day.

Fiction to be posted later tonight. (Hopefully.)

The following is a continuation of this.

So, barring any contemplations from Mr. Longbottom as he makes his way from the Great Hall to the hospital wing, you'll see what happens to Ginny in the next installment. I'll warn you right now: It won't be pretty. I must say that I seem to be rather taken with this series of events. I plan on signing-up for the Dark Fest when sign-up happens in August(?) and I'm thinking this might be the backbone of a story.

Finally this evening, a bit of Remus/Sirius. I'm not feeling this as much, though it was fun to write. I don't read a lot of Marauder-era fic (although, I'm trying to rectify that), so you'll have to forgive me a bit for some liberties with characterization; the above DH-inspired stuff has me spellbound (ugh, no pun intended), so, this is I have for you, brighty18 and loveangelsiri (it's a bit subtle, but you can read into the James/Sirius thing if you squint, IMO, but maybe that's just wishful thinking).

DH and Hogwarts. Discuss.

Lately, I've been thinking about what branch of fic to reach out into first. Right now on my check-list I have: Drabbles I need to finish for the people who were nice enough to drop by and leave prompts, the Harry/Draco pr0n that has stemmed from the lovely suggestion by lijahlover, and big project.

Y'see, this Xmas break, I really started becoming interested in Hogwarts during Deathly Hallows and one thing led to another, and before I knew what was what, a gaggle of plot bunnies were nesting in my head. And ever since, I've been doing some thinking about what was going on while the Trio was out camping (srsly, was that necessary, JKR? 200 pages of camping? Really?) and was making up a list of what I'd like to see from that school year.

Now. This is where you lovely people come in.

I'd like to get crackalackin' on that fic of the soon, but first, I'm thinking a little research (or at least discussion) is warranted, don't you? So. In as many words (or comments) as you need/find appropriate...I'd really like to hear your thoughts on what was going on at Hogwarts during Deathly Hallows. I know that we know a bit about what happened, but...perhaps you're seeing something I haven't even thought of. It's definitely worth an ask.

So, without much more ado...discuss!

Sugar-coated Nostalgia.

I'm presently eating Cap'n Crunch: Crunch Berries for the first time in years and even though I'm shoveling horrible things like "partially hydrogenated soybean oil" and "yellow 5" into my's sogood, omg. OM NOM NOM NOM.

star98hope tagged me a while back for her Letter Meme, and I'm just getting around to it now, so...Collapse )

I only had time for three. But moar to come soon, as I certainly enjoy reccing anything I can.

*Cuts entry short*

Updatage later.

Drabble meme results.

I'd like to thank everyone who participated in the drabble meme so far. It has been exceedingly fun responding to your interesting prompts and working with characters I never thought I would. I'd also like to let the few of you know who haven't received your drabbles yet that they are still coming, but real life has gotten in the way (I'll explain in a post that isn't this one) a bit, and is distracting me to the point of negligence. Well, that and the Pups are being bastards and not holding still so I can capture their essence. Whatever that means, Sirius. *Rolls eyes* So, just be patient, and they'll be coming soon.


In the meantime, I shall link you to the words that those kind enough to comment pulled out of me:

+ Neville/Tonks as requested by scruffytheduck. Pre-anything, mutual intrigue & interest.

+ Harry/Draco as requested by thilia. Okay, this didn't really turn out as Harry/Draco per se, but I'd consider this pre-slash to a potentially dub-con fic.

+ Albus Severus/Scorpius as requested by thilia

+ Pomfrey, Filch, many mentions of Mrs. Norris for brighty18 who originally suggested Pomfrey/Filch, but my version of Pomfrey just wasn't cooperating. She found the situation too ridiculous. Note: Edited and cleaned-up version here at the Harry Potter Drabble-A-Thon hosted by fallenmelody.

+ Harry/Draco with top!Draco, light BDSM, and Harry blindfolded, as requested by lijahlover. This actually has spiraled out of control and I'm going to be writing my first ever Harry/Draco fic thanks to this prompt. Be proud, lijahlover and lavillanueva. You've both infected me.

Requests still pending:

+ brighty18's prompt of Remus/Sirius.

+ roaringmay's prompt of a not-too-fluffy Snape/Lilly.

+ loveangelsiri's prompt of a not-too-angsty Remus/Sirius with mentions of a possible secret/in denial James/Sirius side-pairing.

NOTE: If you like what you see, feel free to keep requesting drabbles at this post. I shall respond!

Help a girl out? Please? *Doe eyes*

Okay, I saw this on lavillanueva's eljay and thought, "What the hell?" I need to get in the habit of writing every day, and the plot bunnies I'm currently pandering to are being stubborn as my muse and I'm not writing anything I like. It's all crap. So, I figure, if I have demand for something...I'll be far more inclined to write, and (hopefully) my muse will be far more inclined to get off her ass and help me already. So, here we go:

ATTENTION: I will write a drabble/ficlet (the story ends when I feel it should end, which doesn't always happen around 100 words) for anyone who requests it. Feel free to post this meme in your own journal if your leanings are fic-related, but lurkers and voyeurs are certainly welcome! I'd appreciate a comment if you're here to read, but I obviously can't force you to do that. Request the character and/or the pair for the Harry Potter fandom (as that is my main shiny right now; however, if you see a fandom in my interests that you're a part of, you can request something from there, too) as well as a brief description of what you're looking for (angst, fluff, pr0n, etc.).

NOTE: I recently got into several pairings that I never used to read (i.e. Marauders fic, Harry/Draco, y'know, the obvious ones), so if characterization is a bit on the sketchy side, I'd appreciate any constructive criticism you can offer, being a newbie and all (yes, yes, g'wan and heckle the newbie, I can wait). Thanks much in advance.

All right, y'all. Have at it!

Of weddings and fandom.

First, I must say that it's upsetting to find trusted encyclopedic websites with spelling/grammatical/continuity errors. Additionally, going onto the Lexicon (because, clearly, no one would have a clue what I was talking about when I say, "the Lexicon") after the legal kerfluffle with JKR is a bit unsettling. Anybody agree? Disagree? Don't care? Bueller?

Moving on.
