6/28/07 09:59 pm - Hard to Keep (10)

Title: Hard to Keep
Rating: PG-13
Type: Draco/Moaning Myrtle sort of het, mostly gen
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of this.
Summary: Hogwarts isn’t the same after Dumbledore’s death. Snape isn’t the same. Draco isn’t the same, and Myrtle most definitely is not the same as she was before. All proper wizards believe in ghosts, and sometimes ghosts believe in them.

Notes: I might have something more to say about this later. I know it’s not perfect, but right now I like it, and I’m really glad to be done with it.

1/4/06 08:00 am - Until the End that is to Come

I agreed to pinch hit for go_exchange in December, because I thought it would be fun and I wanted something other than finals to drive me insane. And because the Good Omens fandom works in mysterious ways, I ended up getting a wonderful, amazing fic The Last Most Beautiful Day in the World from bookshop and writing for no one in particular. Anyone familiar with Good Omens should totally check out go_exchange for all the incredible fic and art . . . Really it’s so good.

My fic is here: Until the End that is to Come
Rating: PG-13
Type: het, Newt/Anathema
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of this.
Summary: Look forward. Adjust mirrors. Use seatbelts. The end comes.

Notes: This fic isn't quite like anything I’ve written before, but I think it’s recognizable as mine. I’m still amazed that I managed to get it in on time, if 1:00 in the morning on the last day of the exchange can be considered on time.

A million thanks to waxbean for the beta and for giving me the opportunity to participate in the exchange despite the fact that there was no evidence to suggest I would be able to write Good Omens fic or finish anything in less than a month.

I haven’t been getting any comment notifications or reply notifications for the comments I make, so I apologize if I’ve missed anything or started a discussion and disappeared. I try to check back on posts I comment to, but I’ve been having a hard time keeping track.

11/10/05 10:00 pm - Birthday

Well, it's my Birthday. It hasn't been especially happy so far because I've been buried in a sea of Environmental Economics homework, but I will soon swim my way out, and there’s cake in the freezer . . . it’s not actually supposed to be in the freezer, but my dad mistakenly thought it was an ice cream cake and put it there, and now we’re worried that if we take it out it will get really mushy and gross . . . Good times!

11/6/05 10:12 am - Yay!

One of the artists at fanart_fairy made lovely art for my almost Harry/Ron fic, and it’s so perfect and amazing and done for my absolute favorite scene* out of all the fics I’ve written. Many thanks to waxbean for pointing it out to me.

This is the first I’ve heard of fanart_fairy, and it’s such a neat idea. I’ve read so many of the fics that inspired art there, and it’s very cool to see them illustrated. Go look at everything!

*My second favorite scene involves Harry and Dudley kissing inside a dumpster and is definitely best left to the imagination.

Because I’ve been in an odd mood lately and because my computer’s been cruelly eating all my bookmarks, I’ve started keeping links to fics I’ve especially enjoyed in private LJ posts categorized in ways comprehensible to no one but myself. Then when I was in an even odder mood, I decided to code them all and put them in a hopefully discernable order. It was hard.

Incase anyone’s interested, here’s the List. There are about 290 fics there so far, and I’ll probably add more to it sometime in the future . . . the far distant future . . .

8/21/05 08:03 pm - Fics I Like

This is a list of fics I like. I know there are many fics that I’ve forgotten to include and many fics I’m trying to track down through broken links and deleted websites, and I haven’t even begun to code for quite a few pairings, but even though the list is not at all complete, I’m fairly sure all the fics here are.

Make sure to read ratings and warnings if they could concern you. My tastes are generally pretty tame, but there’s a bit of everything here.

Title: Brain Damage
Rating: PG-13
Type: Harry/Ron sort of slash, Draco/Ron sort of friendship, Mostly gen
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of this.
Summary: When you’re going crazy, it’s best not to go alone.

Notes: There should probably be some warnings slapped onto this. I’m not sure for what exactly. It’s long and in second person, and I usually have very definite ideas about characters and write them the same way in different situations . . . I didn’t exactly do that here.

So . . . mizbean tagged me to do the Movie Meme, and any excuse to avoid studying for finals is a good excuse.

*Also if anyone was ever wondering what a magicicada is, that’s one in my icon. Yeah, my username is the name of my favorite insect and not just some word I made up. Yeah, I have a favorite insect.

4/22/05 06:59 pm - Randomness

I made some corrections to most of my recent fics. I hope I fixed up most of the lingering errors in Shadow Boxing, and I think I made the ending to How We Shine a little clearer, though it’s hard to tell, because everything confuses me. And somehow Save One Thing got about 400 words longer . . . because, yeah, it wasn’t long enough already.

I also wrote a drabble about Dudley. Actually, I wrote a few, but this was the least embarrassing one.Collapse ) And I doodled some pictures on art pad of Dudley and Ron. They're not very good.

3/13/05 11:14 am - Shadow Boxing (2)

Title: Shadow Boxing
Rating: PG-13
Type: Slash, Harry/Dudley
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of this.
Summary: You can’t win against anyone, if you can’t win against yourself.

Title: How We Shine
Rating: PG-13
Type: Mostly Gen (Slight Harry/Draco)
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of this.
Summary: Colin spins a story. Draco spins gold. And Ron spins out of control.

Notes: The summary is isn't very good, and the story is quite strange. I have no idea what it’s really about-- Alchemy and Hogwarts and other things.

Rating: PG-13
Type: Slash, Harry/Dudley
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of this.
Summary: It would take something stronger than magic to make Dudley Dursley a hero.
Warnings: Painfully Long, contains second-person POV and high levels of Dudley.

Notes: I have no idea what I was thinking. Really. No idea.

11/6/04 05:48 pm - Art Pad

I’ve been friending a bunch of people. Hopefully, no one minds, but if anyone does and would like me to remove them from my friends list just let me know.

This journal isn’t dead so much as in hibernation because I write slowly, and I don’t usually have anything to say, but today I’ve been having a lot of fun with art pad despite my complete inability to draw using a mouse. Feel free to look, but don’t expect anything good.

Title: Lessons
Rating: PG
Type: Gen (no pairings)
Disclaimer: I don’t own any of this.
Summary: In his final year of school, Ron learns from some unexpected teachers.

Notes: I’ve had this journal for a few months, but I’m insecure and indecisive so it took me a long time to finally post something in it, anyway, this fic pretty much wrote itself.
