Birthday again

A different year, a different attitude. One step away from 40, and somehow, I just feel calmer all of a sudden.

Landmarks in the past year:
Got a new job. The first "real" job I've had in over ten years--since I went back to school.
My sister had her baby. Whom I adore like nothing else. Spent yesterday with the two of them. She is the happiest baby... I love them both. :)

Other than that, nothing's really changed much. Still write slash, still do too much at once. I'm trying to be more pragmatic about it, though.

Got sick this past weekend, so I've spent most of this week at home, trying to cough up a lung or something, but I've been able to distract myself with a new game: Spore. It's a lot of fun. I've only made it through the first two levels so far, but I'm looking forward to finding out more about the game, and I've already started three different races. :) If you're a Sims or Sim City fan, I highly recommend it.

Finished my D_D. Just waiting on one beta before I post it. Not what I'd intended to write, but I like it. I think others might, as well.

Plans for my boys today - Harry and Draco are renewing their vows in a legal ceremony today... And I think one of my other boys will be happily distracted as well. We'll see. :D

Thank you to everyone who has so far wished me a happy birthday, and thank you to Ceria and Snapesgirl for the special presents. I enjoyed them both very much. :D

[No Subject]

Much to do today.

Managed about 2000 words of my Creature fic now.  I haven't gotten much past the prologue, but I'm getting there.  And I'm pretty happy with what I have.  Haven't even thought about next month's D_D, yet, though.

Saw Batman last night.  And I still need to do my review of Hellboy, too.  And tomorrow, Mamma Mia.

Still have empty spots in my Alphabet meme, and I won't start writing the responses until they're all filled, so please help me fill them?  *puppydog eyes*

Prophet stuff, and Harry's birthday (early, since it's the middle of the week)...

And I'm watching a friend's cat, so I have to remember to do that, too.


But consider this warning--I will be spamming today.  At least two posts.  Possibly more.

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.

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.
