Title: Anticipation
Rating: R
Summary: Playing with Mandrakes would have been more comfortable than seeing Sirius for the first time since that thing on the train and having to pretend that nothing had changed.
Prompt: "The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it." -Oscar Wilde
Genre(s): Romance/fluff
Notes: Thanks to my fabulous beta, [livejournal.com profile] elizassecret. MWPP, Lily, and the Hogwarts Express all belong to JKR. Thanks to those who organized [livejournal.com profile] rs_games. This was a pinch hit I did for round one for team MWPP—finally getting around to posting it here.

Remus' head bumped against the window with each sway and rock of the train. )

As anyone around here has probably seen, [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts is a wrap. It was great fun to help moderate it with the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] magnetic_pole and [livejournal.com profile] sambethe. The master list is up and you really should check it out if you haven't—there is much fun to be had.

I ended up writing three things. The first two listed below were supposed to be drabbles—to thank the fabulous pinch hitters. However I am apparently unable to be concise, so they are 2,500 and 1,100 words. The third is my original assignment (also about 2K over the length guideline, sheesh) and is my very first raising Harry AU.

No Denying It for [livejournal.com profile] midnitemaraud_r
Sirius searches for something to lift the mid-winter gloom, finding brightness and warmth in some expected and some not so expected places.(Rated PG)

Traditions Past, Traditions Present for [livejournal.com profile] rosivan
It is difficult being surrounded by idiots. (Rated PG-13)

Objects Of Sentimental Value, a gift for the [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts community
Sirius had never accepted defeat, a quality that was as much as hindrance as a help, but this one time it just might work out for the best in the end. (Rated R)


On another note, I haven't managed anything like a year-end post. I feel as if I wrote a lot this year. I know I wrote more different characters and pairings, more femslash, and both more smut and more gen than in the past. Oh, and I wrote longer fics. Perhaps I can manage to post the remaining three fics I have yet to post here, finish Of Silver Light and Shadows, and update the master list. Perhaps.

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2009 has started well for you all. It has for me. This week the kid and I: rode his scooter a lot (and I hit uneven pavement and flew over the handle bars); went hiking/rock scrambling and did not break anything; went ice skating for the first time and neither of us cracked our heads on the ice. Not bad.

This was my first entry for [livejournal.com profile] rs_games, finally reposting. The genre was hurt/comfort. I decided to avoid high drama and go for regular old (well maybe not regular old, since it is Sirius) teen angst. I hope you enjoy.

Title: Never Say Anything Right
Team: MWPP
Author: mindabbles
Rating: PG-13
Summary: "So, are you going to tell someone what the matter is, or just keep on like this until you piss off everyone we know, collapse, and end up in St. Mungo's?" Sirius has a very long night.
Wordcount: about 5,000 words
Prompt: Degausser by Brand New. Song and lyrics here.

In celebration of the fact that my [livejournal.com profile] hp_yule_balls fic is finally with betas and that I have an actual idea for my [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts fic, I thought I would work on posting some of the fics I've never posted here. Here is my entry for round two of [livejournal.com profile] rs_games. And as Team MWPP's fearless leader pointed out, polls are not always correct. :P

Title: Mystery of the Missing Muggle Studies Section
Team: MWPP
Rating: R
Summary: When current events in the larger world move close to home, Sirius, along with Remus, James, Lily, and Peter must get to the bottom of it. Sirius' sleuthing is interrupted occasionally in order to have sex with Remus.
Prompt: Aquarius (Jan. 21 — Feb. 19): Clarity allows you to evaluate every development with real discrimination and to know instantly what needs to be done rather than facing a nebulous array of options. Certain priorities are about to get sorted.
Genre(s): Romance/fluff, drama.
Notes: Thanks to my fabulous betas, [livejournal.com profile] midnitemaraud_r and [livejournal.com profile] elizassecret, who worked very hard and very quickly, well into the night. MWPP and Lily belong to JKR. [livejournal.com profile] elizassecret suggested that this story' is Sirius as Nancy Drew, hence the title.

Title: One Last Bridge To Cross
Author: [personal profile] mindabbles
Characters/Pairings: Remus/Sirius, James, Peter
Rating: PG-13
Summary: How many of us get the chance to rectify one of our greatest regrets?
Somewhat loose interpretation of prompt # 31: The Marauders all meet up again in the afterlife which, being shaped to meet your happiest memories, looks oddly like Hogwarts how it used to be. Remus was always in love with Sirius, and is still mourning, even though they're reunited. Maybe it's time to come clean. But it's difficult knowing he only has all eternity.

Thanks so much to [profile] sec38 and [personal profile] such_heights for their fabulous beta help.

The first ‘National Coming Out Day’ in the US was October 11, 1988, on the one year anniversary of the Second National March for Gay and Lesbian Rights in Washington DC, at which the AIDS Quilt was unfurled. The organizers urged LGBTQ people and allies to come out, stating that it was a matter of life and death. Many nations celebrate Coming Out Day – in the UK, it’s October 12.
The theme for this year is ‘Talk About It.’ In celebration of National Coming Out Day, October 11, 2007:
