A Snippet of Seven Years of Entries

Since this year marks my seventh year on journals (started at LJ, came here in 2008), I thought I'd do one entry from each year I've been here, and do commentaries on the entries themselves. These entries were just ones that stood out as a way to show my fandom change over the years I've been here. Most have something to do with fic in some way.

And that's it…a small snippet of seven years of fandom life. Not bad. :)

30 days and counting...

For those of you who know me personally, I will now apologize, because most likely, the only thing I will be able to concentrate on is a certain book that is shortly to be released.  I will not, however, pretend that it is not. 

As for writing...Well, I've worked my list down to a chosen few fics, which may or may not get done within that time.  There shouldn't be any surprise fics (Draco's birthday) in the next thirty days.  I hope.  So, on to the list:
Primitus Conspicio - H/D - Harry and Draco are placed under a curse by Lucius.  Based on the movie Ladyhawke.
Five Times Out - H/D - Vaguely PWP, Draco takes to following Harry to a club while wearing disguises so he won't be recognized.
Snape's Son - Gen - The war is over, and Snape discovers something new to give his life meaning at the deathbed of Albus Dumbledore.
Strangers Till Now - Draco/Hermione - Draco sends Hermione on a little visit to see his cousin -- the Goblin King.  Based on Labyrinth.
Still untitled Veela!Draco story - H/D - After the war is over, Draco decides to act on something he's wanted for a very long time.

Two of those are chaptered, or at least exceptionally long fics, so I'm not too sure I'll finish them in time, but we'll see.  The most likely to be finished are PC and SS.  Now just to sit and actually do it.

In reading news:
Currently reading the sequel to Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee, called Metallic Love.  I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the first.
As far as fic goes, I'm currently reading Per Solum Lacuna By Words Alone, which is an utterly gorgeous Harry/Draco anonymous correspondance (through journals) fic.  I don't think it's completed (yet), but as it's taken me this long to even catch up, I think it's a fabulous read.  I can't wait to see what happens when they begin to realize who they've been talking with. :D
Other than that, it's just been the usual bits and pieces on my flist, though I have been surprisingly drawn to the classic literature retold as HP stories lately: Great Expectations, and Severus Snape and the Ghostwritten Romance (Cyrano de Bergerac) particularly stand out as stories I'd highly recommend.  If anyone out there has similar works, I'd love to read them. 

That's all for now. :)

WIP meme

Gacked from [info]beren_writes.

Take any currently unfinished fics you have and write the first line/paragraph from each.


Just so's people don't want to slaughter me... ;) )

And, just so we're clear, the further down you go, the less likely it is that the story will ever get written.  Course, opinions might make me change my mind... ;)

More about writing...

So, people out there in HP-reader-land, which would you most be interested in me finishing, aside from Finding Harry & The Silver Cycle?

The sequel to Snapshots - DM/HP
Untitled Veela!Draco story - HP/DM
Strangers Till Now - DM/HG, crossover with Labyrinth
Winter Flowers - AU - what if James Potter survived the night Voldemort attacked, and Lucius Malfoy died soon after? - JP/NM, SB/SS, SS/NM
Draco Black - Draco takes a new name summer between sixth and seventh years - HP/DM
Untitled Prequel to Snapshots - SS/RL
Untitled post-war convicted!Draco saved by Harry & Snape story - HP/DM, SS/RL, lots of others mentioned
Untitled post-war Remus angst story - RL/HP, SS/DM, SS/HP (dear god, I might actually write snarry!)
Untitled final piece to the True Revenge Saga - no ships, told from Draco & Adriana's povs
Untitled Snape takes care of Draco fic - SS/DM, mention of LM/SS
Untitled H/D Tristan & Isolde take-off, Dark post-war, Voldemort's side won - HP/DM, SS/RL, LOTS of others


So,  do let me know if any sound interesting...I'm trying to decide what will get done, and what will get discarded.  The more votes I get for something, the likelier it will get written.

Starting to feel the crunch

Okay, even though they haven't yet announced a date for book 6, I'm starting to feel the crunch.  The main problem being that all my stories seem to be long ones.

So, as of now, my main focus is on Finding Harry & the Silver Cycle, just because they're actually posted out there.

Beyond that, I'd like to finish my Veela!Draco story, Strangers Till Now (Draco's being an ass, and doesn't want to cooperate.  I think he's just protesting that it's het. ;) ), and Winter Flowers.  I don't know that I'll ever finish the sequel to Snapshots.  The fic was so perfect on its own, and I'm thinking a sequel could kill it.  I might write the SS/RL prequel, though.

I also have several stories I'd like to start before it's too late.  We'll see....

To do

I HAVE to write today.  I've been doing almost no writing lately.  Mostly because I don't really like the chapter of FH I'm working on.  It feels meeningless.  Maybe I should skip it and just move on to classes restarting.  Hmmm.

And I've worked on none of the other stuff still in progress.  All I've been posting lately is my ficlets that Foodie and I work on.  Though "Please Not a Ferret" got a lot of attention.

I should work on Strangers Till Now, and I haven't touched Winter Flowers in over a month, I think.  At least that has slash in it, so I could enjoy it if I did.  But I seem to be on a Draco kick...

Oh, well, here goes nothing.

Draco

So, anyone who's read more than one of my fics on FF.net knows I mainly do Draco.  He always seems to be my default character.  Aside from my latest craze of doing het ficklets, most of my fics have Draco in them somewhere, and most often as one of the main characters.

I was thinking just now how different they are.
I have slash Draco and straight Draco, though I tend to slash him more often then not.  I actually quite enjoy doing Draco fics in first person, too, though I haven't done any lately.  I am working on a sequel to Snapshots, but it's not coming along too well, so....

Draco's Draught - First person, first HP fic I ever did, and it shows.  H/D.  Kinda whiny, wimpy Draco, really.

Drawing the Circle - Third person, oneshot.  Clueless!Draco.  Fun to do, but nothing exciting.  Again, H/D

Snapshots - First person again, another H/D.  My favorite of my H/D fics.  I've been told it's not unlike 50 First Dates (Which I don't exactly consider a complement, since I'm not particularly fond of Adam Sandler, and the movie looked reduculous.)

Dragon's Tears - First person, my first Het Draco, though he doesn't really have any love interest, but part of a larger story arc, so I know he is.  And Letters, a kind of Post-Script one-shot in the same universe.

Precious Silver - Well, not so much a Draco fic, but sort of.  And my first pairing of Draco with anyone but Harry... :D  At least two more stories planned in this Arc.

Finding Harry - Another Het Draco.  AU.  Might end up with Hermione in this one.  :)

In One Blow - My most recent.  Third person again.  I think this might be the most canon of my Dracos, really.  Definately not het.  H/D & S/D :D

---

Stuff I'm working on with Draco in it:
Sequel to Snapshots, again, will be first person.  This one has Bastard!Lucius in it.
Sequel to Precious Silver, entitled Tarnished Silver.  Third person, and this really will be Draco, as well as the pseudo-draco in Precious Silver...  The whole Arc will have a decided Sev/Draco bent to it. :)
Strangers Till Now, Crossover with Labyrinth.  Draco doesn't seem to be cooperating much for this one.  It's Draco/Hermione, so Het again, but he doesn't seem to be wanting to say much...
Winter Flowers, which isn't so much a Draco fic, as has Draco in it a fair deal.  If I can manage to write a believable toddler...
Five Times Out, which is third person, and again H/D....
And, unfortunately, a Veela!Draco fic, which is H/D, what a shocker....

You know, sometimes I wish my muse wasn't blonde... ;)

[No Subject]

Sarah's visiting, so we're watching Empire Records, which I've only watched once. so I'd forgotton Maxwell  Caulfield was in it.  And how lovely his voice is.... sigh. :D

Finished my fic for DA, and it's winging it's way to her.  It's a bit SS/DM, and a bit HP/DM.  ANd a bit of angst.

Now if I can just work on either Strangers or FH, or both. :)

Aug. 14th, 2004

Writing for tomorrow

Need to finish Dark Angel's birthday fic. I've already restarted it twice. Like the second version better. Now just to get Harry and Severus to cooperate. :)

Should work on Strangers. I'm sure if I worked on it, I could at least finish the scene I'm on, then I could send it to DA, cause I really want to see what she thinks...

Need to get the boys in FH back to School. Still debating if I'll show Ron's Christmas or not.

Everything else can wait.

Aug. 6th, 2004

To do for the weekend --

Start next chapter of FH
Work on STN
Work on TS
Play with ideas for Dark Angel's birthday fic...
Work on other stories

Not going to be up to much this weekend.

Sarah: up to the drivein at all tomorrow? Might be up to it if you are. :) And I do have up to twelve dollars off tickets to Catwoman at selected theatres. :)

Xmas chapter is finally up!

So, chapter's up.  Already got two reviews before I even managed to post this...gotta love it.

Been Reading "Stealing Harry," which is absolutely wonderful, and now I know exactly why everyone says "go read it!"  Even if you're not a RL/SB shipper, as long as you like either of them, or even Snape, it's definately worth a read.  Go check it out. 

The only problem with finishing a chapter, is it's that much harder to start the next one...

Maybe I'll focus on STN for a few days.

Aug. 3rd, 2004

To do:

Finish my rec list for posting at Yahoo!group
Work on Strangers
Work on Tarnished Silver
Start next chapter of FH.

Also, still need to work out what I'm getting Hubby for his birthday...

ETA - Finished the Rec list.  It is now up at the Yahoo!Group.  :)

So, remaining on the list...

Closer to finishing Xmas chapter.  Need to finish Xmas party, do Xmas eve, Xmas day,  and Xmas Family dinner.  Hmmm...new Malfoys to create.

Still need to work on STN, haven't touched it yet this weekend.  Or any of my other fics.

Haven't given any thougt to presents aside from "Dang, need to do that..."

Everything else is done!  Yay!

Made Tacos for dinner... mmmmm. :)
