Fic year in review

All the fic below can also be found by looking at my fic list tag.

End-of-the-year Fic Wrap-up )

State of the Elf again

* Job is...nuts.  They've been getting twice the work I'm able to do in a day.  And have no one else doing it.  And I'm scrambling to be able to do as much as I am.  Plus, I'm not really doing it the way they want to end up having it be done.  Someone else does a bunch of lookup and callbacks that I couldn't do yet because I didn't have access to the relevant system yet.  So eventually they want to have three of us doing the lookup, callbacks, and entering all at once.  Which would slow things down incredibly much.  I don't think they're quite cognizant of that just yet. :P

* Have been wibbling back and fort on a reclist of Anj classics.  So...the question is, would there be any call for it, or does it seem redundant or silly, and I should just keep my big yap shut?

* Have not been playing in my games at all of late.  I suck.  Mostly because I can't really at work without feeling like I'm breaking rules, and by the time I get home, I'm wiped.

But I have been able to rp a bit through email and a few private rps... 

Harry and Draco have been together since September of 2006, and got married in 2007 (realtime).  One private ceremony with just very immediate family (Lucius, Severus, Sirius and Remus) in the Netherlands where it was legal for males at the time (the rp took place in 2002 at the time, I think), and one public ceremony several months later in the summer that was just for show.  And now that we've moved them to "today," Harry's asked him again, now that it's legal for men to be able to marry each other in England.  So he's been working on that.

And my Blaise has finally gained a Theo.  We set it up that they were together in school a bit and then separated by the war.  And now they're engaged to be married.  My Blaise is very much of the "love doesn't exist" mindset because of his mother, but his friends and lovers have convinced him otherwise, and so now he's shocked, but very happy.  It's odd, but sweet.

* Writing - finished my HP Vamp fic, but for the editing, which will begin this weekend.  Need to start my D_D, and have ideas for another fic as well that wants to push the D_D right out of the way.  And if I finish all that, I might claim another prompt at HP Vamp.  Oh, and I have drabbles to do, too. :)  And I have this amazing fic idea that I *have* to find the time to do, too.

* Also…have been having an idea that I’d like to do one of those “commentary tracks” for one of my fics.  Anyone have any preferences for which?  I might do a poll at some point.

* [info]hd_worldcup.  If you’re not watching, why not?  I haven’t had much chance to read what’s been posted so far, but I have enjoyed what I’ve read.

* Politics - I'm starting to get annoyed with both candidates.  I was so thrilled when they both ended up as frontrunners, because I thought it meant we could avoid the “vote for me because I’m a …” argument.  Why they couldn’t just run on the issues…  Well, I suppose I know: they’re too close in most beliefs, so they need better ways to separate themselves.

* Have been considering switching my default icon to something different.  Not sure to what yet, though.

State of the Elf

Soo...  many things.  Again.

* Grandmother moving this weekend.  Didn't actually do anything cause I have no car, and so have no way of transporting her, just realizing that she's much further away from me now.  Moved across the water to Bel-Red Road over in the East side, if you know where that is.

* Job front - Meant to announce this before, but with job stuff and the Cup fic which I've been struggling to do, I haven't had the time.  I am now a real employee at the place I've been working on and off since July.  about two months there, then a couple not, then back in late November, I think it was.  And I've been there ever since.  It's  a bit odd.  I hadn't realized how long it had been since I'd had a "real" job.  I quit my last back in 95 to go back to college.  Just kind of wierd.  But it's good, so far.  We'll see how stressed I get.

* Writing -
Cup fic is done, and in the editing process.  Lots of helpful people, so I'm very excited.  Could well be my best fic ever.  Okay, maybe not, but I'm very fond of the bunny, even now, and saying that after having finished it?  Not usually the case, so I'm feeling good about it.
D_D for this month has been started.  Starring Blaise again, shockingly enough.  Usually Draco doesn't let anyone else go more than a month at a time, but he's shockingly happy and sated these days. ;)
HP Vamp is having their Free Range fest again, and I have several bunnies I'm thinking of claiming.  I just really need to remind myself that I can't.  Maybe one or two at the most, and certainly not until I have at least 1000 words done for D_D.

* Cable guy was here today, and after much hassle with finding a modem that would work, we are connected again.  All I can do is hope that this will be the end of our random cut-offs when we're trying to load pages or chat with folks.

* Have someone new that's kind of been percolating in my head since JKR made the Post-warts family trees: Lorcan Scamander.  I don't know why he specifically is calling to me.  Possibly the geeky name.  He's pretty different from most of my usual muses.  Not sure if anything will come of it, but you never know...

* Posted all my H/D stuff over at Skyhawke now, aside from unpublished.  So there's a ton there, now, and the ratings system seems interesting to me.  I've stuck most of my drabbles in Ship-related "stories," one chapter per drabble, just to keep from having a hundred teensy little stories on my page, but anything over 500 words has its own story.  I'm not so good to sticking to under 500, I've noticed. ;)  So...the question is, what ship should I do next?

* A request: Have been reading chaptered stories at work, but it's getting hard to find things I should have read that aren't long-one shots (rather prohibitive with the amount of time I have to read, so anything over 10,000 words as a one-shot is too much.).  So...  I'd love suggestions.  Particularly H/D, or next-gen, though Regulus seems to be popping up in my mind a lot lately.  I don't suppose there are any chaptered fics about him?

And how is everyone else out there?
