State of the Elf

Geh.  When was the last time I did one of these?

No more online, journal-based RP for me.  I left the last one a while back.  I miss talking to the folks, but I don't miss the stress.  And I will never Mod another RPG again.  Now if someone would just stop waving such pretty Yaoi boys at me, I might have a chance... :P

Work is still hell.  We did our big meeting thing, and changes are proceeding apace.  Some of which actually are helping, though from the current mess, you wouldn't know it.  I have a feeling that I'll be getting in more OT real soon.  Already did an hour tonight.  And I deserve ten million treats for how good I'm being about work.  So I bought myself a few fun things, including something someone on my flist suggested: My Gender Workbook.  I'm finding it fascinating so far.  Haven't gotten far into it, but I definitely like it.  Also got another name book, a couple of other books, the Pelican Brief on DVD, and a game for my DS.  I'm still trying to decide what else I should get...

D_D...  I really loved my idea when it came to me, but I can't concentrate enough lately to write, and what I have sucks utterly.  Saturday will be it, I'm afraid.  I hate leaving it that late, but I have to go see Hellboy tomorrow if I want to retain my sanity.  (see treats comment above.)

Haven't spent our Tax refund.  I want to get all new sheets and pillows, and a new bolster for my comforter or two.  And an ergonimic keyboard.  Not sure what else I need, aside from a maid and storage. :P

Dr Who...An amazing episode, though I know many are upset by it.  I won't say much here, but I thought they did a great job, even with the issues so many have with it.

Stargate this weekend!  Wooo!

Sister and hubby have finally moved back to Seattle.  They moved down to the Bay area for his job shortly before they were married (he works for Google), and he finally managed to convince them he could do the same thing he was doing down there up here.  So they've been making the rounds with my niece, who is utterly adorable, and whom I cannot get enough of (and if you know me very well, you know how little I like babies, so that's saying a lot).  Shower next weekend.  I need to find time to buy things... *sighs*

Tired.

Been spending an inordinate amount of time at a new site I found: Listal, because it's easier than writing or thinking.  You can list movies, books, tv shows, video games, and DVDs that you have, love, or want to see.  And you can make lists within each category, and reviews.  I'm loving it.  Does anyone else have an account there, so I can friend them, and if not, do you want one?  I've already done reviews for all seven HP books.  And a review each for Contact, Dogma, and Matrix.  I'm trying to decide what I should review next.  Anyone have any suggestions?

Erm...sure I've forgotten many, many things.  But it's a start, right?

Drabble Dump

For Wolfish Cat:
Ro/Blaise
This started out based on FL, but...well, it's going somewhere else, so we'll let it. Warning here for implied chan (Blaise is 15), and assumed D/s, though there isn't really any sex in the drabble.

A Nighttime Walk )


Florahart
Snape, Charlie, bubblegum.
214 words - PG

Robin
Harry/Draco
This one's based on the RP these two started in.  As I said in my note the other day, they've been playing together since 2006, and married in 2007, though we never actually played all of that out because we skipped forward several years.  So...this was my solution. :)
402 words - PG

My Role in Fandom

So...this is something I've been meaning to re-do for ages now.  But especially since the move to IJ in August.

My number one priority in fandom is, has and always will be, fic.  Writing it, and still occasionally recing it.  I post the 13th of every month to [info]daily_deviant, and participate in random fests here and there.  And, on great occasion, I write something just because it desperately has to get written.

Modding -
I am an editor at [info]potter_prophet, which I contribute to each Sunday.
I mod the asylum [info]blaise_zabini, which accepts all fic, art, icons meta or other entries having to do with the dark-skinned Slytherin.
I also mod [info]hp_nano, which is a gathering place for those in the HP fandom participating in the yearly NaNoWriMo Challenge in November.

RP -
I co-mod the game [info]founders_legacy, where I play Draco and Blaise.
I also RP in a slightly different form at [info]rp_bad_boyz as Rabastan and Blaise.
And there's also still an older Draco in my head who snuggles with K's Harry.

Then there is [info]true_revenge, which [info]foodie and I have been slowly posting all our stories that started with a simple little idea I had about how Lucius might have proposed to Narcissa.

And [info]shadowhunt, which is the beginning of a pseudo-rp surrounding an idea [info]foodie had where Hestia Jones starts up a bounty-hunting agency after the war.

Then there's something that's not strictly fannish, but which I haven't mentioned in my journal until now--[info]writing_linkz.  It's nowhere near complete, and probably never will be.  It's invite-only to join, but anyone is free to watch.  Mostly, it's a place where I stash links that I think will be helpful in my writing.

"It was twenty years ago today..."

Okay, actually, it was only two, and it was sometime around the fifth of last month that I first started Roleplaying two years ago.  I was forcibly reminded of it this morning when I went to post a Blaise-fic at [info]blaise_zabini (come on, you know you want to post there!), and realized that I'd written it with the gal playing Draco in that first game for [info]inell's birthday that year.

I have not regretted any of it, despite some of the angst my characters have put me through.  So many lovely characters, too.  And so many games.  Moonlight, Suivre, Ab Dissimilis, Gaywarts...and now Founder's Legacy.

I'm not normally a very social person.  It takes a lot for me to speak up around strangers.  But with RP, I've discovered this whole group of friends I never would have had without it.  People who I can't imagine not speaking to as often as I possibly can.  I think you know who you all are, but let me say here and now, that I adore each and every one of the people who I have played with in those two years.  You've given me some amazing times, and I'm so glad to have met you.  And I hope to go on playing together with you for a good long time.  *hugs you all*

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.

Links because I can, and miscellaneous things

Link one: The Ten Doctors (Dr Who, that is...)
A comic strip featuring all ten doctors, and most of his companions as well.  If you're a fan of the old series as well as the new, this is a great read.

Link two: My favorite house-icon maker has made a new batch of icons with His Dark Materials quotes.

Link three: [info]florahart has compiled the IJ stats for the big surges since May.  And yet, the site is still running quite smoothly...  Unlike others I could name...


To Do List:
Advertise [info]founders_legacy @lj
George reply to Hess
Blaise reply to Fred
Post Movie Drabbles

Post PB list
Write Tonksathon fic
Start next D_D fic
Write out first chapter of collab with [info]kabal42
Back up old RPGs at GJ before it's too late
Create Asylum for boys to play in

I'm sure I've forgotten something...

An invitation:

My new game:



Founders Legacy – an AU 4th Year RPG on Insanejournal


* What if Gideon Prewett had survived the attack that killed him and his brother?
- how would it affect his sister and her family?
- how would he be, if he were still alive, but had lost his brother?
* What if Arthur and Molly had divorced before Ron was ever conceived?
- how would Harry deal if one half of his support system--Ron--had never existed?
- how different would the Weasley boys be if Arthur remarried--Blaise Zabini's mother?
- how different would Hogsmeade be if Gideon and Molly ran the Three Broomsticks instead of Rosmerta?
- how would the twins be different if they grew up with different names, not even meeting until the Hogwarts Express, never knowing the other existed before that moment, and were subsequently sorted into different houses?
* What if Bellatrix had had a child?
- how would she be different if she escaped being sent to Azkaban--because she had to raise her son?
- how would she respond if Andromeda had divorced her Muggleborn husband, and was trying to reconnect with her sisters?
* What if Harry's circle had included Slytherins?

State of the Elf

So...even though I've posted just about every day in the last month, most of it has been story-stuff rather than other stuff, so I thought I'd update everyone.

Writing-
Got some serious bunnies in the last month.  SS/SB/RL with a Tonks side, SS/RL (yes, really) post DH with Teddy in attendance, DM/SM fic for someone's xmas gift because she deserves it, and something like three or four non-fairy tale H/D ideas.  Including a 12 days of Christmas thing, which I have informed my brain is not going to happen...  In particular, working on a post-DH story with [info]kabal42 that could be tons of fun. 
For now, though, my #1 priority is D_D's KK fic...I think we're almost done...
Still have it in mind to do Epilouge Kid drabbles...

Life-
Watching Bedknobs and Broomsticks and then Narnia today with hubby...as soon as we come back from the store. 
Sister's working on a books list for the Zygote...  That's been fun. 
I'm really beginning to hate the holidays, though.  Or maybe its just that side of the family.  Every time I get an email from one of them, I get tense.  To the point where I'm starting to avoid email in general...  No clue what to do as far as gifts, given that all the major people in my life aside from my sister either don't want them, or are so distant as to give me no clue what they might want. It's kind of making me ill.  I wish I were more ahead.  And that I had the skill, equiptment and time to just make everyone new scarves or something...
Been reading a lot.  Both fic and books.  Just finished the Dexter books.  Will probably post a review of all three this weekend.  But the short version?  If you like the show, read the books. :D

RP-
New game, here at IJ: [info]founders_legacy.  Ad to follow soon.  4th year AU.  We're having fun so far.  Game officially starts the first of January.  I've taken on Draco ([info]draconis_m) and Blaise ([info]blaise_z), of course.
Also, doing a half-writing, half-rp project with a friend surrounding an idea we've had for a while.  It's called [info]shadowhunt if people want to give it a look.  Post-DH, Hestia Jones sets up a sort of bounty-hunter service.  We've got four characters: Hestia, Charlie, George and Blaise.  There will be slash and adult humor.  It's a closed game, but people are quite welcome to watch.  We'd love opinions.  We're not going to run it like a traditional RP, but there will be threads that will grow over time.  And we'll probably post threads for people to comment on after them, particularly when we're looking for input on who they should go after next, or things like that. :)

Found a new toy I've been spending too much time with: Wordie.  There under elfflame, if folks want to look at my word-lists and/or suggest additions. :)

LJ-
Okay, so my reaction to the new uproar yesterday was, "Uh huh.  And this surprises you?"  This morning, it's more, "goddamn it!"  I refreshed the page I keep my lj open on, not noticing that it had logged me out, so all the fest entries were not only hidden behind a cut, they had an extra page to get to content.  Except when I logged in, it wouldn't let me see either the page or the "are you over 18" page any more...just errored out.  I figured it out, but still... 
Mostly, I'm just glad that's not my main journal any longer.  I can't wait to see what happens when the first person gets closed down because of these...  So done with this.  Been done with it since August.  So why hasn't it effing gone away yet?

Nov. 15th, 2007

Here at the halfway mark

So...done for the day...

No further writing to show for it, but I can tell my brain's shut down.  Halfway wordcount at the halfway mark isn't so bad, though, right? :D


25607 / 50000 words. 51% done!

Yes, I've changed colors.  I figure its less glaring on the eyes of the color changes.  Besides.  I like it as a way of showing I'm more than halfway now. :D

Let's see...what have I been up to this month?  Got and lost a job (long story--short version?  I hate phones).  Quit Thanksgiving this year, then emailed an invite to Christmas Eve from which I've heard back from absolutely no one...  Have I told anyone here how much I hate dealing with that side of the family?  Working to make plans to go spend time with the sister after the new year, and before her baby is due.  Totally cool with the idea of being an auntie for the first time, though I suddenly realised how odd it will be that she'll be a mommie...

So, as stress relief, have been talking about a new game with a few people.  Could be fun.  So many people I've missed RPing with...  *snuggles them all*  I just really haven't been doing much at all. 
SG, if you have some time tomorrow, and need a break, I'd love to chat to you about it... :D

Project Runway--I feel like I waited WAY too long for the new season, but it was so worth it.  I think I'm really going to love this season.  Can't wait to see more. :D
Still very much enjoying Pushing Daises and Journeyman, too. :D  Not a bad season for a bad season.  I just hope they survive the strike.

Having connection issues with one of my computers.  Was fine yesterday afternoon, but went off to play a game for a few hours, and when I came back to my desktop, couldn't connect to the internet any longer.  Have had this issue before with this computer, so I assumed it just needed to be rebooted, which has always fixed it in the past, but when I started it up this morning, no dice.  I have no clue what could have caused it, as I have downloaded no upgrades (that I am aware of) in the 12-hour period before that, and it was just fine that day before that...  Anyone have any clues why it would act that way?

Happy thoughts would be welcome, as my mood seems to be rapidly deteriorating at this point between family, computer and that time of the month.
