So flist, did you know that taking care of someone who has just had open heart surgery is a bloody lot of work? I suppose that's obvious, but it is. This is why I haven't been around much. :P

I am supposed to take the kid camping with a big group of friends this weekend. Not sure how this is going happen. I will be doing a lot of back and forth, I guess. I know friends will help, but I may be out of touch again this weekend and I may need to mainline coffee.

I think I may have gained back all the weight l lost in the last round of Game On. I am not going to worry about it, though, because that would be self-defeating and whatever, really. And….the next round starts on June 2nd! I will be so, so ready and I will continue to drink wine and eat chocolate at the end of these long days until June 1st.

Right, I'm a bit of a drag here, so in other news – FIC FOR ME!!!!

Prizes from the last round of [profile] game_is_on (because [personal profile] romaine and I kicked their arses (of course, they kicked the collective arse of me, [personal profile] lyras, and [profile] elizassecret this last round. Wait a moment, [personal profile] romaine seems to win all the time *note to self: put Rom on my team again next time):

Bingo! by [personal profile] torino10154: Remus and Sirius, along with Regulus, Severus, Dumbledore, and a few others play Bingo in the afterlife. This is a quick, short, snappy back and forth between Remus and Sirius that is sexy, funny, and sweet. YAY! And it's mine, but you should read it and leave a lovely comment. :D

Step by Step (A Beginners Guide to Bringing James Potter to Your Bed) by [profile] gryffindor_j: Scorpius has been tasked with seducing James – by Teddy!! Scorpius follows the step-by-step given to him by Teddy. They include "bring him to me," which I have on good authority was said with a wolfish growl. I don't think I need to tell you anything else. I have to share this one with Rom, which I don't mind and we both, I'm sure encourage you to share our good fortune and leave some love.

Written for me at [community profile] hp_beholder: Dogs of War by [personal profile] alimsiemanym. It is a gritty, carefully crafted story with an unflinching portrait of war. Mind the warnings, but read it for the believable, intense and incredibly touching relationship and the genuine characterizations of Moody and Scrimgeour. A really moving, vivid, and detailed fic.

I wrote, The News Today (Morning Edition), which I'll repost here soon. It has the pairings: Augusta/Moody, Minerva/Arabella, and Arthur/Molly. That's right. I not only wrote het, I wrote het that wasn't James/Lily and I wrote Weasley het. I am rather pleased with how some bits of this turned out. :)

I planned, and still plan, to do some more recs from [community profile] hp_beholder. In the meantime, check out the masterlist and just pick something to read/view. Don't go by pairing or the authors and artists you know (except, of course, for mine). You really can't do that at this fest. It is such a fabulous fest and the overall quality is really stellar.

And…Remix is live! I ended up writing a pinch hit for it. Go and peruse the amazing archive. I've only had time so far to read a couple, and they have both been great fun. The fandom tag page is here (http://archiveofourown.org/collections/Remix2010/fandoms) at Archive of Our Own.

That's all for now. Need to get some sleep so I can get up and do it all again. How are you, dear flist?

Oof, no wonder you've been quiet! I hope the patient is recovering well.

Also, hee, I was reading through the HP remixes last night, and I'm sure there was a moment when I went, hmm, that totally sounds like something Min would write, except that I didn't think she was doing Remix. Must try and remember which it was! Of course, it may not have been HP at all, in which case I am scuppered.

I adored your Beholder fic (you probably worked that out by now), and I thought your het was gorgeous. :) Well, so was the femslash, obviously, but it's the het you seem to be worrying about. *g*
