Random:

--Has Harry/Draco disappeared (or have I just been friending a lot of people lately who don't ship that pairing and defriending people who do)?
--Where is all the Great Gatsby slash? [/rhetorical] I will write some soon. I must. It is my new goal.
--Also, Pan slash. Or just Pan fic. I don't think I am pairing-particular there. Little boys in tights, little girls in nightgowns.
--I read Lemony Snicket's first book in A Series of Unfortunate Events. I found it thrilling. I had a fic in mind for it, but I forgot. Then I read the next one and was disappointed that it was much too similar to the first to be as enjoyable; I realized it isn't the same sort of children's book as Harry Potter. This really is a children's book. I will finish the next one before I decide to be bored by the series.
--I really want to look up Daniel Radcliffe's robes.
--I really want Alan Rickman to look up Daniel Radcliffe's robes.
--I can't stop writing mpreg fics.
--Will post mpreg fest entry here as soon as it is beta-ed.
--Note to self: find beta.
--Note to self: make some coffee.
--I must read a book. I have been longing to read something that isn't fanfic. Life of Pi is right on the floor with a decorative bookmark stuck in it. So close, yet so far.
--Tonight I will make popcorn and watch "A Streetcar Named Desire".
--Finished the run of previous Shakespearian play (Merry Wives). Am now preparing for the next (Midsummer). Must memorize Helena's lines.
--Queer as Folk "documentary" on VH1, Thursday, 11 PM.




I haven't yet acknowledged on my journal Katie's lovely presents for my birthday. I received them two weeks or so ago. I am prompt, as always. She sent me a birthday card, which contained a drawing of Snape and a very Snapely message and it made my day (and it is sitting right here at my desk). And she wrote me a Sirius/Remus fic entitled A Dog's Taste, which I received in my inbox at midnight of my special day. It's darling. I Y katiethewriter.

Agreed. The language is enjoyable. I think it's what kept me going through the second book--that and my hope that the author will surprise me in some way, but of course I won't depend on it. Someone bought me the first six books as a gift and am feeling extremely guilty that I'm getting bored this soon, so that's also fuel to press on.

I read the first one yesterday. Coincidence? I think not!
You say they're repetitive, I agree. I abandoned the second one in chapter 3. *Le sigh* Makes you appreciate HP that much more...
...hurry up, Rowling...

It does indeed make you appreciate HP!

Suddenly, I am thinking that one of the reasons I would continue to buy the books is the pictures; I love Brett Helquist's drawings and sit and look and admire as I come upon a new chapter. Hmm. It makes it worth the repetition methinks. Of course, one doesn't have to read the books to look at the pictures, but it's not hurting anything to enjoy the language...

A lovely post-Hogwarts Harry/Draco can be found on emmagrant01. WIP, but she's putting out a new piece each week. Only three or four more parts to go. It's not my usual pairing to read, but I'm one of the betas... and let me tell you... this next part has one of the hottest scenes I've ever read.

But even neverminding the smut, it's a pretty keen story. :)


Oh, yes, I've been happily running along with that fic and even left a piece of feedback or two. In fact, every once and a while I look to my calender to hope that Tuesday, the update day, has finally come. By far THE Harry/Draco story I am currently following. I'm glad it is here when the supply of this pairing (as far as I can see) seems to be running scarce.

It's a very good and crisp; a fine job beta-ing, if I do say so myself. :)

Well. Then the only other h/d I could point you to would be my two very wee ficlets done for slash_challenge. But, nah.

:)

H/D hasn't disappeared... Well, at least not from my heart, mind, or computer...

And I've heard that SoUE is a fab series as long as you get past the first book or two. While at B&N, I heard many much nice things about it.

*snerk* You and looking up Dan's robes. *shakes finger at you*

*giggles*

*waves hand* I'd be happy to beta if you're looking...

And you rocked the world's socks with your Shakespearean fabulousness, didn't you. You know you did.

*grin* I'm so so so happy you enjoyed your birthday gifts. *grin* That gives me a big happy. I Y nattish right back!

I don't suppose it has gone, has it? I think I've been grazing through my LJ friends and have unknowingly defriended many H/D shippers. I shall have to do something about that.

The first book of SoUE is fun, but the second...hmm, hmm, la.

Daniel giggles when I look up his robes. And he blushes something adorable. ;)

Yes, actually--I was remarkable in the Shakespearian and received a truckload of flowers and was thrown upon The Pedestal of Wonderment, where for seven straight days I was engorged with chocolates and fruits and danced around by my own harem of partially clothed Snape look-alikes.

I had thought about you as a beta, my dear, but I was unsure how you felt about the subject of mpreg. Don't even think of saying yes to beta-ing this if you don't absolutely want to, because I wouldn't dream of inconveniencing you and I could just as easily swipe up another beta from the mpreg crowd. :)

I sure hope it's not gone. *loffs H/D* And you had better not even think of defriending a certain Gryffindor H/D shipper... *hintmehint* I'm quite sure the Gryffie would actually think about whoopin' your hide if you even thought about it. *wink*

Maybe I was just hearing the good stuff from the kiddos who are fond of the repetitiousness of it... *shrug*

*snerk* I bet Snape giggles when you look up his robes too... either that or he gives you that sly trying-to-ponder-repremanding-but-really-enjoying-the-fact-that-a-lovely-girl-like-you's-looking-up-his-robes look. *wink* I'm quite sure Harry gets giggly and red. So doesn't surprise me.

See, I knew you'd be a Shakespearian hit. *grin* Ooo Pedestal of Wonderment... Hmm... Where do I get one of those? And that Snape-i-ful harem... *jealous!*

Well, haven't I told you at least a dozen times that most anything you write I love, even if it is something I don't usually? Natt!Fics never 'inconvenience' me. They make me smile and squeal and jump for joy. So there. I'd love to beta for you m'dear, if you'll have me.

*DEFRIENDS* You are the worst friend EVAH.

*meep* I mean... <333333 :)

Snape doesn't giggle when I look up his robes; he requests that I put on green contacts and glasses. Yes.

Well...well...um, I, suppose you might have mentioned that, yes, sir, ma'am. It is longish, though (20,000 words), which also makes me jumpy about asking you. But if you would like to, I'm not going to refuse. I could send it along within a couple days if you still want.

*sniff!sniff!sniff!* N-n-n-nooo no defriendy! *starts sobbing*

*hangs head* I's the worstest friend... *snif-* Wha?

Oh. I'm not! *wipes nose* Well that's good. *grin*


Ahh is that how Sev works? All about the Potters, hmm? Well, let's see... I'll just steal Mum's glasses and... Oh... no black hair for me... does he mind if Harry goes a bit lighter on the hair color?

I would love to. I'm in Natt!Fic withdrawl! And I have a feeling that you're the only mpreg writer I'll actually love. *nods* Because you're awesome and all... *wink*

Has Harry/Draco disappeared (or have I just been friending a lot of people lately who don't ship that pairing and defriending people who do)?

Yeah sweetie. I'm still here. ;) You won't be getting rid of me soon. Or I hope not. Will eat your foot if you do :D

Where is all the Great Gatsby slash? [/rhetorical] I will write some soon. I must. It is my new goal.


AND CONGRATS ON GETTING HELENA. I DON'T REMMBER IF I ALREADY TOLD YOU THAT BUT EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Yes please. :D

er. yes please to great gatsby slash. *headdesk*

*waves to fellow shipper of the mighty goodness* I will not be rid of you. But you are free to eat my foot if you are hungry.

Will pass along links if I find Gatsby slash. I had one recced to me a couple months ago, but I misplaced the link.

Thank you! Helena will be fun but hard. Have only three weeks to memorize lines. *squeals in horror*

Oh, the Great Gatsby is so good. I would totally love to see some it slashed. Mmm, Gatsby.

I really, really have to get my own copy of that book.

It is, it is, it is. When I finish reading it--I close it, contemplate it, and then open it up again. Never-ending. I love Fitzgerald's writing.

Everyone needs their own! I swiped a copy from school. *guilty*
