Very long-delayed update

So...I have been writing my little heart out. Finished off my Bottom!Draco Fairy Tale fest fic and sent it off with plenty of time to spare. Then I started on my Ownfic, and discovered I had a massive fic on my hands. Managed 10k, then got clobbered with the worst flu I've had since I was a kid. Managed to recover, but my fic got sent in about a week late because of it.

Now I just have to focus on getting ahead on things before the end of October so I can do NaNoWriMo. I don't think I'll manage. I have at least 4 fics to do in the next three weeks. Wish me luck!

Posting!

So...two things today.

I know I've been uber quiet.  Life's been kicking my butt in a major way.  I'd really like to be unstressed, but that doesn't appear to be likely to happen any time soon.

But...to reward myself for doing work homework this weekend, I got into a new fandom.  So, to make it easier on myself to find those in that fandom, I was thinking I'd make a filter, for when I want to read posts specifically about it.

Soooo...

Also, I think my icons need a shakeup.  I did this once before, and I'd love help.  So...which are your top 10-20 icons of the ones I have now (the keywords are fine if you don't know how to/don't want to link to the icons) do you like best?  And what icons do you think I'm missing?

An explanation:
[info]ceria and I were discussing the ages of the older lesser characters in HP.  In this case, it was a fic that would have taken place while Arthur and Molly were in school.  But we were trying to decide who would be there with them, and at what ages.  She encouraged me to do a poll, which I love to do anyway, so it didn't take much.

So I made a list today to keep myself from going mad, of 50 character where the birth dates aren't too exact.  Your role, if you should choose to accept it, is to decide where you think that character falls.  And, for added effect, if you have other characters you'd like to see done, please leave a comment with their names at the bottom.  If I get more than five, I'll make another poll. 

Also, if you choose "other" for a character, comments would be lovely. :)

Forgive if there are any flaws...I'm a bit tired at the moment.  Long week.  I'm so glad there's only one day more...  Am allowing a bit of leeway here, just for the sake of completeness...

The massive poll, because I seem to have nothing else to do with my time... )

Polls! (repost - please vote again?)

Cause, you know...I have nothing better to do today...

Poll #1: is anyone else interested in suggestions for the music poll here?

Poll #2: So, everyone remembers this Next-gen kid house poll, right?  I've decided, with all the new kids she gave us, that we need a new one! :D  So...! 
Wow...so many kids that I had to make two polls.  I put notes on the new ones to show whose kids they are, and I left off middle names.  Still, people should recognize them by now, right?

Polls behind the cut! )

Sorry to those who were trying to vote when I deleted...It swallowed James on me.  I swear, he was in there.  It was cause I was futzing with it to try and get them all in there.

State of the elf

Let's see...probably one more story to come this year, so I'll wait to do the Fic year in review.  Probably Tuesday while I watch all of the Lord of the Rings for the New Year.

No other takers for my Music poll?  I know it might seem a bit daunting, but really, just go with your gut instinct.  The more choices we have later, the better. :)

Commenting.  Link to [info]kabal42's post yesterday, and to mine from several months back.  I think it's time to get that meme going again, and I think I also want to post a new New Year's meme, though of a different sort than last year.  I only hope it's as successful as that one was.

[info]founders_legacy officially starts Tuesday.  Daunting, but exciting.  Starting with a bang, too...  The Halloween feast in Harry's Fourth Year. :D  Should be fun.

As for Ms doesn't know when to stop, Yes, I saw the new stuff about the next gen.  I'm actually of two minds about it, as I am with all the stuff in DH, really.  I always know when i've gone fannish nuts because I start writing lists.  I have a program, Family Tree Maker, and couldn't resist putting them all into a slightly more visual format.  So, here for download is all the major families that have more than two members that are connected easily.  If people have the program, I'd also be willing to upload the base file.  This one is in PDF format so that anyone with Acrobat can read it.  Any additions (canon only, please) are more than welcome.  :)

Christmas went better than expected.  And the last of everything has been done now, so all that's left is my grandmother's birthday tonight (THAT side of the family, unfortunately...) and New Years, which should be nice and quiet. :)  Hubby bought me a DS, so I've been playing with that a lot.  I'm quite enjoying that. :D  Particularly a game called "My Word Coach," which apparently also has French and Spanish versions.  If they ever do a Welsh one, I'm so there... :D

Still have some writing to do, of course.  Bonking Tonks is due the 9th, and I haven't started on that or my D_D for next month.  Still, I have ideas, so hopefully I should be able to do them this week...

Oh, yes.  And I am now permanently Insane. :D  Got my permanent account yesterday or the day before...can't recall for sure.  But it feels nice.  :)  Even with the issues here, I have confidence that this will be a much more comfortable long-term home for my fandom life.

Music poll pt 1

So...I've been thinking about music and the songs we tend to label as decade-defining songs.  And it's easy to pick out what I think are, but the truth is, there are so many sub-groups, it's hard to know what really does.  So I had an idea.  Why not see what my flist thought? 

So, I have a poll in two parts.  I will close this probably on the fourth, and post a follow-up poll using the entries I get for this one.  Feel free to link people to this.  The more, the merrier.

Some guidelines:
  • The song needs to have been on the charts for the decade it's being nominated for for at least one week.  Doesn't have to have been at the top of the charts, but it needs to have an actual presence in the decade.
  • Needs to make a statement about that decade (IE, Smells Like Teen Spirit, War, etc.).  You don't need to justify them to me, but these shouldn't be bublegum pop, either.
  • Stands the test of time--a sound-byte into that decade.
Oh...and if you can't think of a song for a decade, you don't have to put it in.  I just wanted to be all-inclusive. :)

If anyone wants a site for reference, I found this one to have a great list: The Vinyl Surrender Decade Music Chart Selector.

Also, please include both song and artist when you post.

Have at it! :D

Poll time!

Okay, so I'm curious, and I haven't done a poll since I moved here, so it's past time.

Holy crossover...  Hubby got me Beauty and the Beast's first season for Valentine's Day, so I've been watching episodes for the past few days.  Does anyone remember that the name of the old spiritual lady is Narcissa?  I was amused.

Also, I will be closing the Ship Poll tomorrow, so if anyone wants to participate who hasn't, go do so now.

And, is there anyone out there who is interested in helping out set up or maintain [info]hpficlist, just nudge me and I'll send you an invite.  If you already volunteered and have yet to join, I sent invites to the four people who volunteered.  There are two locked posts there already dealing with how things should be set up.  Please leave your opinions.
