06:37 pm - Hellooooo, LJ-land!

Thank you thank you thank you to rillalicious for her super lightning fast beta work on my hp_tarot fic!!!!

My first HP fanfiction in years... I realized how much I missed it while writing :). It's definitely different than my previous work, and different than I'd originally intended, but I'm happy with it. IF anyone's interested, I've just posted it to the community here:

In RL news, things are going fine. Work's fine, kiddo is doing great (he's 10!! TEN!!), husband is fine. We're quite boring, really., We did make it to Dragon*Con this year, and Prince Brat was all goggle-eyed *whoa* *whoa* *WHOA* at a lot of the superhero lady costumes, fairy costumes, and his absolute favorite: Poison Ivy costumes. He's definitely growing up ;).

01:33 pm - Recs needed!

So my almost-ten-year-old Prince Brat wants to read some HP fanfiction. Which presents a problem for me that's really quite embarrassing... I don't know of any non-smuterific HP fanfiction! I know plenty of genfic for Star Wars fandom, but can't name a single child-friendly HP fanfic.

Sad, really.

So - an appeal! Does anyone know of a "clean" HP fanfic that a boy Prince Brat's age would appreciate??

(And Rilla - I'm going to get the beta done today or tomorrow at the latest! Sorry for the delay)

07:21 pm - Re-reading Fanfic

So, as I've posted before, the new movie has prompted me to dive back into fanfiction. I'm rereading some classics while I'm at it, and this line just really tickled me after seeing the movie Thursday night (behind the cut, though it's not a "real" spoiler):

10:39 am - So it's official...

I'm coming back to fanfic writing - at least for a little while. I took an hp_tarot prompt and it was accepted. Nine of Swords - Hermione/Snape and Hermione/Ron (not a threesome, don't worry! Ha!) From the claiming table: The Nine of Swords represents the pain that we generate from within. What tortures we put ourselves through when our fears and doubts overwhelm us.

I hope Rilla is still up for beta'ing my stuff after four years of holiday :). Anyone else willing to beta? I'll definitely need it - I'm rusty!

06:59 am - Giving up on Meme

I give up so easily ;). Since most are picture posts in the meme now, and I'm lazy/have little time to comb through and upload and blah blah blah, I'm slacking.

I know some of my flist are Wheel of Time fans. Is anyone else thinking of going to JordanCon in Atlanta the weekend of April 23 - 25? Brandon Sanderson is supposed to be there, which would be completely awesome.

08:22 pm - Meme Day 5 - Favorite Quote

My current favorite is:
"The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance — it is the illusion of knowledge."

It really applies to some of my coworkers ;).

In other news, it is now 218 days until Celebration V.

06:48 pm - Day 4 of Meme - Favorite Book

And I thought the first couple were hard - my favorite book. I'm going to semi-cheat - The Lord of the Rings. It's really one BIG book, right?

But how can I not mention Anne McCaffrey's Pern series, when the covers practically fall off from re-reading? Or Robin McKinley's works of art? And what about poor ol' Rand al'Thor in The Wheel of Time series?

GAH! This is too hard. I'm actually between books right now - anyone that's read and enjoyed the above list, can you shoot me a recommendation???

01:14 pm - Day 3 of the New Year

The meme requires I post my favorite television series. Again, this is tough... I think I just like too many things.

Favorite of all time would have to be Star Trek (ALL of them - yeah, I'm cheating! In order of my faves... Original Series, then Next Gen, then DS9, then Voyager, then Enterprise).

Favorite that is currently in production... I'll have to say Lost. I can't wait for this final season to begin. Once the writers had an "end point" to write towards, bam! plot lines started really getting tight and direct. Loving it.

In non-meme news - it is now 220 days until Celebration V. SQUEE!! The Blizzard Force (Snowtrooper regiment) can't wait to so some photo ops at the Orlando Ice Bar (and some vodka concoctions, of course).

04:39 pm - Long time, no post!

I know I haven't posted in forever - but I have been lurking when I have the chance. Anyhoo, figured I'd better do the obligatory "I'm not dead" post, and also try to get better about posting. So I'm going to do the January meme that's going around.
Meme time!!Collapse )

09:36 pm - Still living, still babbling

So I was nudged by andrian1 and figured I’d better make good on my promise to post more often. Hey, last time it was 33 weeks since posting, so 12 weeks is an improvement!! ;)

Lessee…. What have I been doing lately? Been traveling to DC a lot to go to Redskins games, which is fun but has been disheartening lately *mutter mutter no offensive line protecting the qb mutter mutter*, dealing with homework and all that fun kid-related stuff. I’ve seen the new Bond, Twilight, and Bolt (enjoyed all three) in the last month or two, and am salivating over the new Half Blood Prince trailer. Salivating, I tell you!!

Speaking of Harry Potter, most of you I met via fandom and fanfic, so you might understand this babbling.
