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 game_is_on
and I kicked their arses (of course, they kicked the collective arse of me, lyras
, and elizassecret
this last round. Wait a moment, romaine
seems to win all the time *note to self: put Rom on my team again next time):Bingo!
: 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)
: 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 hp_beholder
: Dogs of War
. 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 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?
