I've left prompts at both hd_fan_fair
, both with background R/S and both got picked. How awesome is that? The teddy_fest
fic has James II/Teddy as the main pairing. I only left the prompt at hd_fan_fair
to be supportive of the mods who have been so supportive of rs_career_fest
but now I am really excited to see what gets done with the prompt. I wish I could write H/D but I can't wrap my head around antagonistic pairings, at least not for writing, anyway. I've read a little H/D, mostly that of catsintheattic
and by the end of the fics I was convinced, but I still can't write it. Probably for the same reasons I can't write Sirius/Snape. I can see the appeal of the pairing but I have a feeling that if I tried both boys would be horribly OOC as I tried to make them both behave nicely and be all saccharine. Anyway, I just love the thought of Greece as a getaway for spoiled purebloods who all have summer homes there or something. Of course, this love is heavily influenced by toujours_nigel
who put it in my head in the first place with Cygnus Black way back, but whatever. I still love it and I love it even more when pureblood religious roots are steeped in Greek mythology. Thank you, toujours_nigel
for that. I didn't include that in the prompt but maybe it will get worked in. rs_career_fest
is almost completely wrapped up and I still can't go over how awesome all the fic and art was and what a great response the fest had. Reveals go up in a a little under a week and I can't wait to for everyone to see who wrote what. I still have a few reviews to leave which I will get done before the reveals are up.
Next on my plate is a fic for eprime
who beat werewolfsfan
in an epic bidding war (okay, maybe only epic to me but it still made me grin and blush, those two were fierce!) at gulf_aid_now
. I have ideas and ideas and ideas. I've got the first sentence written and after that it pretty much writes itself. As soon as my reviews for rs_career_fest
are posted that will be next priority.
After that I start major research for a fic that is probably beyond my actual abilities but I'm going to try anyway. I can't say more than that because it is for rs_games
. Suffice it to say, I am intimidated and have probably bitten off more than I can actually chew.
And lastly I've been thinking of posting my bigbangblackout
fic to my AO3 account. It is a huge oneshot and I've gotten complaints at grangerenchanted and ff.net that I should have broken the fic down into chapters but I seriously don't know where the breaks would be. So. Still hemming and hawing over that.
Not much RL to tell that is worth telling so I'll let this be a fandom post. I really wish I could rec all the rs_career_fest
fics but as a mod that sort of thing is frowned upon I understand. So I will resist. Though, I signed up for crack_broom
and I'm flying in September. I can rec there, can't I? Thoughts?
Anyway, I haven't had a how are y'all post in awhile, so how are all of y'all doing?
