Not dead or even close, really. But it has been a helluva year and a half or maybe three. I know I haven't been gone that long, but it feels like it. I'm kind of emerging from a fog, at least I hope I'm emerging. Some things I have learned recently:

1) You all are awesome and [personal profile] gryffindorj has an extra side of wonderful. Thank you to her and all of you who participated in [profile] for_min. ♥ x 1,000.
2) I've missed being around here more regularly or at all. I've missed writing more and commenting and rec'ing and I hope to be back and stop having to apologize to mods as of…right now.
3) Cancer sucks and so does losing a parent and my family is actually crazier than I thought.
4) I could grow old and wither away waiting for the kid to get out of the car. Seriously. I have tried to wait him out, just see how long it would take if I don't prompt him, hurry him along, pull him out of the car. I have never, not once, been able to wait him out. I always lose it and say, "would you please get out of the car?!" I asked him the other day to guess how many days of my life I had spent waiting for him to get out of the car thus far and he said, "About four weeks. Hey, have you ever noticed how people who have cats tend to get more cats?"
5) I have not updated my masterlist or reposted fest fics here for about a year and a half. I shall get right on that…now.
6) Here's a song about a duck that really wants some grapes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtN1YnoL46Q

And some recs:

Title: Denude
Author: faithwood
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~4,200
Summary: This is a HBP AU. It's set a few days after the Sectumsempra scene and takes the story in another direction, asking the question: "What if the Sectumsempra scene had a greater impact on Harry and Draco?"
Warnings: angst, but hey, this is still me. So. Sex, where Harry and Draco are sixteen. In medias res beginning. Non-linear storytelling. Present and past tense. Not quite my usual style.

I stole this rec from [personal profile] snegurochka_lee. I pretty much always love her recs, so. The writing in this is beautiful. It is angsty and so very hot. It is a completely different take on school age H/D and I loved it.

From the Remix HP index:

Firewhiskey and Baked Bean Soup (The Reunion Mix)
Summary: Remus came over one wintery day, found Sirius hiding from the world and failing to make soup from curry and jam and some milk that hadn't quite gone off yet.
For Penknife.
Inspired by How to Survive in the Wilderness (Without Soup) by Penknife.

This is another one where the writing was absolutely beautiful. There were passages I read a few times to get the way the author put the words together. Sirius and Remus characterizations are wonderful. It is achy and melancholy and romantic and sweet. While you're at it, go and read the fabulous original.

Post Cards from the Edge (The Return to Sender Remix)
Summary: Remus was only looking to save a little time with his homework. But what he wound up with was being the unwilling recipient of some very earnest love letters. His situation would be so much better if he could ignore Sirius and the letters, but he can't seem to manage that.
For via_ostiense.
Inspired by Oi, M by via_ostiense.

What I love most about remix is seeing totally creative ways of remixing the original. This one took a simple note and built a whole different story around it, while staying true to the intent of the original note. Fun, sexy, sweet, and a very satisfying conclusion! Go and read it.

Some others:

Title: Feet on the Ground
Author: kellychambliss
Characters: Filius Flitwick and the feet of several Hogwarts staff members
Rating: R
Kinks/Themes Chosen: Podophilia (foot fetish)
Other Content: Masturbation
Word Count: 2800
Summary: For Filius Flitwick, sexual arousal is all a matter of point of view.

One thing Kelly does consistently is write fics that I read and think, "I would never have thought of that." The summary combined with the theme is awesome, yes? She manages to infuse humor while being totally respectful of both Filius and the kink. There are some fantastic lines in this one as well.

Oh, oh, so some of you fabulous people participated in the community I mentioned above for a whole month and it blew me away every single day!! There were sweet, silly, hot, and funny videos and photos, recipes, ridiculous names, and fics, to name some of the wonderful things. Serious that a bunch of you would do that just to cheer me up really knocked me flat. And here are a couple of the fabulous fics!!!

Title: Light of Day
Author: midnitemaraud_r
Pairing: Sirius/James, Sirius/Remus, and implied but not explicit Remus/Sirius/James
Rated: NC-17
Summary: Sequel to With a Little Help From My Friends. In which Peter is not amused, James has a thing, and Remus and Sirius make a little wager.
Word Count: ~4,000

Omg, yay! Midnitemaraud_r's MWPP era R/S! FOR ME!!! Remus is clever and sneaky and sexy; Sirius is gorgeous and clever and sexy, James is loveable and slightly bumbling and sexy. It is hot and fun, and there is a kiss so romantic is melted my heart. ♥

And last but so very much not least:

Title: Maybe One More & One Decision
Author: torino10154
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: ~525 + ~400
Pairing: Harry/Draco, Charlie
Content: Dirty talk, hand job, wanking, threesome implied

Harry and Draco in an established relationship. And then there's Charlie, and, well, all I have to say is this:

Harry ran his fingers through Draco's hair as they lay together in the dark. They were sweaty, and sated, and yet he couldn't quite fall asleep.

"You're thinking about him, aren't you?" Draco said, voice reverberating against Harry's ribs.

Harry stilled his hand. "Who?"

Draco propped himself up on an elbow, and pressed his lips to Harry's closest nipple. "Charlie."
Yes please! ♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥
