[No Subject]

Anyone working on NaNoWriMo this year who wants a spreadsheet (for Excel), check these out.

Also, a word of warning to those who don't know, I do NaNoWriMo every year, and most years, it gets posted here in my journal as I go.  Which means a mass of unedited fic.  You have been warned.

This year, I've decided to do more H/D fairy tales.  Different take than last time, but like last time, I'll be doing the fairy tales first, then doing the over-story once they're done.  It should be fun. :)

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?

This week's <lj comm

Name five times in canon when everything would have changed if a character had made a different choice.

*looks at the prompt, blinks, looks at it again*

They're kidding, right?

*sighs*

Well, I'm not doing five.  I'm the AU queen, and I've been sitting on a list of AU prompts for forever.  And some of them are choices, and some of them are just more general "what ifs," but I want to share them anyway.

So, this list is for anyone and everyone who wants to use it.  I was thinking of a fest, but I really refuse to do that to myself.  Too much stress, especially given what I've seen friends go through when it comes to that sort of thing.  Not worth it.  But...  I would love to see anything written from this list.  I'd even link it. :D  And feel free to chime in with additions.

The Prompts )

Some of these could actually combine pretty well, so if you feel the need, that's cool, too. :D

And, yes, I do realize some stories do fill some of these what-ifs, but I also know that two people can have the same idea and write it totally differently.  I was just trying to be all-inclusive.

Also, addendum to birthdayness, if you haven't checked out [info]elfservice, you should definately do so.  There's some lovely stories there.  And also [info]alisane has written me a Snape/Blaise fic: Big Enough.  Go check it out. :D

Bunnies for up for grabs!

Bunny #1:

Het Weasley Bunny )

Bunny #2:

Remus/Harry Mate bunny )

Anyway, I'd love to see either or both written.  Hell, I'd love to see multiple versions of the second fic.  Come on, hit me with it.  Anything and everything! :D

More NaNoMo babble

So, I did it.  I signed up for NaNoMo.  I guess we'll see.  I've hit 7000 words today in my fic.  Still have to deal with a lot, though.  But I have okay from my giftee to put it on hold for the month if I don't finish.

So...  You will be seeing my WIP, as I will be posting it in bits and snatches here until the end of November, done or not.

I don't have a title yet, and I need to work out a vague outline, because not all the Death Eaters will de-age/re-age at the same rate.  The older they are, the longer it will take. 

I'm thinking of making a filter, so that people don't have to see it.  Question to those who have done/are doing NaNoMo--how do you normally handle, or how will you be handling your novel-in-progress?

NaNoMo

All right.  I've been thinking about this, and I thought I'd posted an entry here about it already, but apparently I haven't.  So here's the plan.  I have a fic I've been working on for a friend that I promised her for her birthday present.  I managed to get her the first section by her birthday, but I've got three sections to go.  SO...  I am going to try to finish it this month.  If I can, and/or if I get to 50,000 words, I am going to do NaNoMo.  If not, well, there's always next year.  But I haven't been writing nearly enough, so a goal is a good thing.

The fic:
Title: Unclaimed Bonds
Current Rating: R
Pairings: Severus/Draco, Harry/Draco, Severus/Harry, Severus/Harry/Draco (if I can get them to cooperate)
Summary: After the events of HBP, Draco is punished, Snape is rewarded, and Harry does his hero thing.  MPreg.

My current word count (this month only):

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
1,098 / 50,000
(2.0%)

What I need from you guys:
I have two story ideas at the moment that I can use for NaNoMo.  I want to know which sounds more interesting, or least cliche.

Fic Idea 1:
Postwar.  Harry/Draco, possible Lucius/Severus or Lucius/Remus, and others may be possible as well.  The Ministry wants to try to reform all the Death Eaters, so Snape creates a potion that will de-age them to the age of 8, then will age them a year a month until they return to their proper age, and they must be watched over and guided by a half-blood or muggle-born until the potion has worn off.  Draco is one of the test cases, and Harry is the one who wants to guide him.

Fic Idea 2:
No specifics, but I want to use Blaise, Draco, Seamus and Harry in various combinations.  How they deal after the war, and what finally brings them together.  Sometimes it'll just be two of the four, sometimes three, sometimes all for.  A chance for me to do a lot of smut, basically.  I might even do a few Hogwarts flashbacks.  Just came to me today, so it's a bit unformed, but I like the idea.

Oh, and if you're interested in NaNoMo, but have no idea what it's about, go here.  There's also a community: [info]hp_nanowriters, for those who are fanfic writers who will be participating this year.

Strange day (rl

It's being a very strange day, in many ways not so great.

Sending good thoughts to Foodie & [info]turtle_avenger.  Take care, both of you.

Had almost no work when I arrived this morning, so my two supervisers scrambled all morning trying to figure out what to give me to do, so I decided to leave early, to give them more time to work on things.

Went to Westlake Mall and got stuff for Foodie's bday present for next month...been certain what I wanted to get for her as soon as I thought of it.  But she might get it early if she needs a cheer-up tonight...  Suffice to say that it's fandom related. :D

Coming back upstairs, I ran into my old supervisor from the big N for a second.  She was always cool.  It was nice to see her.  I may have to stop by sometime and actually visit with them again.  And I never do that.

Okay, so fandom stuff...
I never do song-fics (I'm sure they'd suck if I did).  But I now have three song-fic ideas stuck in my head.  So, if anyone wants these, I'd love to see them written...

The first is actually a Star Trek Voyager idea:
It's a Chakotay/Janeway story, using the lrycs to Take a Chance on Me

The second is using a new favorite song of mine:
Harry/Draco, using the lyrics to Aqualung's Strange and Beautiful.  In particiular focusing on the Chorus:
I'll put a spell on you,
You'll fall asleep and I'll put a spell on you.
And when I wake you,
I'll be the first thing you see, lyricstop
And you'll realise that you love me.

The  third and final is based on an old  Tom Lehrer song:
I see this one as Snape/Lupin, though I suppose it could be any Snape Ship, really.  The song itself is N Apostrophe T, which is from his days writing songs for the Electric Company.  It's a great song, and it fits Snape eerily well.

Please, please, pretty please? :D

Gah! Tell the Plot-bunny to go away!

I'm rereading some of my old shorts, cause I don't have enough energy to write tonight, and suddenly I got a plot-bunny bite from Mae Govannen Severus Snape.

Snape arrives at the party to discover that he's not the only teacher who has dressed as a Lord of the Rings character.  Remus Lupin is dressed as Aragorn. 

And I do not slash actively in any other fandom, so why is this calling to me so?

So, should I do it?
