charlotte!fic housecleaning post

There is part one of a new fic (originally birthday-written for dogstar101, but I'm expanding it) posted at charlotte_s_web. Ted and Andromeda are being fluffy and revoltingly so.  I don't get many things right the first time.

This is fic is going to be so much fun to write. I just realized as I was typing up part two -oh god, I hate numbers, but then, so does JKR- that according to the Lexicon Tonks was born in 1973, which means Andromeda had her when she was nineteen. YAY TEENMOMS! And Ted is so working for TV.

*raises hand*

Who in here would actually be interested to see some more Draco/Kate? I'm not sure if I can bring myself to care enough to write a sequel or something. Which doesn't bode well.

!! by the way, this post does very much not mean that you're allowed to ignore my TV poll below!!

bedtime!

Another brilliant YouTube:


...seriously. How amazing. Doesn't Harry look *just* like he's talking at the beginning. And I'm rediscovering just how amazing P&P really is. Seriously. Especially the BBC version, and Colin Firth hasn't even jumped in his pond yet.

Anyway. I went babysitting with my very favorite family tonight and it was lovely, lovely love. And now I must fold laundry.

fanfic!

Life Support- Love for the Lonely (Matchmaker Fic)

Wanna hear a funny story? Draco is a bitch to write. Heh.

Title: Life Support (Love for the Lonely)
Summary: Kate Fisher (the OC formerly known as Amy) is a magical marine biologist whose life has reached a degree of irksomeness that is, in itself, irksome. Draco Malfoy is working with his uncle and hasn't felt anything in years. Enter Love for the Lonely, the resident Matchmaking agency...

best. thing. ever.

For St.Mag's Matchmaking Challenge

Hi.

I'm kind of ick-ish (okay, worried and upset and depressed) about leaving for uni. Especially since I'm likign the one I picked (okay, the only one that accepted me) less and less.

But whatever.

I'm going to Barcelona with Granny for a week! YAY! Also, yay, fictime. Rather: versebuilding time. Introducing Amy Jordan, Draco Malfoy's one twoo wuv....

fanfic!

I'm spamming your flist and spoiling your kids...

...but I bring a drabble/minific, and that makes it okay. And a plot-bunny. Is it too corny to write a Lily-fic based around Where Have All the Flowers Gone? I'm going to be thinking about this one a lot, because I have the song stuck in my head and the girl is just so brilliant. Family History, you say? Yeah, because I'm really going to choose Bella over Lily. *g*

Title: He's A Boy
Summary: “How did this happen? We were so sure he was going to be a girl!” In which I attempt to explain the utter WTF-ness of naming a kid Albus Severus.
Ship: H/G (seriously!)
Rating: G

MY first post-DH fic!

Ron&Hermione fluffyness. How predictable. I assume I will be back with more soon enough (Andromeda and Cissy reconciling, for one, that scene needs to be touched upon) but this shall suffice for now.

Link to FF.net, because I'm way too lazy to post it in here.

OH!!! caboca and I founded a FIC COM!!!!!!
   
is a community dedicated to the artistic and hopeful mourning of deaths in HP-canon. In other words, fics about death that don't make you want to slash your wrists and shop at Hot Topic. *prods* go visit?

our turn now

Really, I was just going to post some more DH rambling but then I flicked on the TV-

And now I'm sitting here watching the CNN/Youtube debate, and it's got to be some sort of heavenly irony that the first twenty minutes were dedicated to the themes to racism and bureaucracy.

All I'm saying is that while the Potter fandom is once again busy griping and whining itself into oblivion because noes, your ship died (and let it be known that I'm still mourning Tonks and Remus), the world is crumbling apart at the seems. On our watch. And it's exactly the themes that are so prominent in those books we fell in love with that are driving us apart. Race, and blood; oligarchy and the political elite, corruption- did you really read these books with your eyes closed? One person's Death Eater is another person's freedom fighter, afterall, but people- we don't have a Chosen One. It doesn't work that way.

People are dying in Darfur in a way that makes Bellatrix look like Dora the Explorer.

And look a little closer to home. Look at schools that don't need the Carrows and the Cruciatus curse to become hell.

And how can a kid be mistreated and hid in a cupboard under the stairs for eleven years, and what if they never get their Hogwarts letter?

All I'm saying is, it's over. I'm never going to stop loving these characters, I'm going to bully my kids into reading these books, I can't wait for the shock to be over so I can delve into the brilliance of construction and imagery that is this book. I'm never going to stop loving this; and I'm not going to stop writing fanfic anytime soon. It was never about being right for me; it was never about analyzing. It was about finding a place where I can play with words. And much more importantly, it's about the people. It's about you guys. It's about finding some of the dearest friends, some of the people closest to my heart. And even if I had hated the way DH played out, I would have never stopped being grateful. And I won't, ever, stop being grateful that I met you guys.

But it's over. The friendships and the memories we take with us, those aren't over, but the books are over, and Harry's done his part, and he deserves that nap and that sandwich and doing nothing else but teaching his kids two-aside Quidditch if that's what he wants to do.

We don't have that right just yet. So find a cause you believe in, find a DA to join, an Umbridge to fight, an Order of the Phoenix. Use the brilliance and wit and brain and compassion that you all have, and for the love of god, get a life.

We owe that to them, don't we? To Tonks and Lupin, and little Teddy. To Colin and Lavender. To Mad-Eye, to Dorcas Meadows and Amelia, to the Prewetts, to Lily and James and Sirius, to the McKinnons and to the fifty faceless bodies in the Great Hall. And most of all, we owe it to JKR, that once the hype and the press coverage and the wank dies- that the ideas that she hit us over the head with, again and again and again, that Hermione's the smartest person in the world and her parents are dentists, and that the weapon we have is love- we owe her. Don't you think?

Am leaving this unflocked for a reason. If you think I have a point, by all means link or pimp.
