Welp, so much for getting things done in their allotted time frame. (Don't even ask about NaNoWriMo. I've decided that if I do the writing prep that would have allowed me to get further than a one-paragraph concept pitch had I done it in advance, I'll count that as a win.)

The good news is, I do have some reason for distraction: I start work on Monday! And I have been writing little bits of fic in the meantime, including a couple of pieces on my favorite Harry Potter family, the Boneses. Very depressing pieces, granted, but I had to balance the 2001: A Space Odyssey crossover somehow.

Anyway, I promised myself I'd finish this meme, and I will. Just not on any guaranteed schedule. Let's see how far I can get today before I get bored or devolve into rambling.

Hello? Anyone still out there?

*sound of crickets*

Yeah, yeah, I probably deserve that. And it's not like I have that many followers on this account anyway, though their numbers have somehow increased in my absence. (*waves to [personal profile] lyras*)

But for the benefit of anyone still out there, hi! Since my last post on here, I've officially earned my degree (somehow) and officially left Boston. I do not have a job yet, though I'm working on it. (If you happen to know of any mid-level fundraising positions in the greater DC or Philly area, shoot me a message and let's talk.)

Also, to maintain my sanity in the midst of the wall of spreadsheets that was my final semester, I wrote fic for [insanejournal.com profile] hp_beholder and [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen. By coincidence, both my stories got posted at the same time, which allowed me to play a fun little game of "Which typically hated character are people more willing to suspend their dislike and read about: Rita Skeeter or Marietta Edgecombe?" (For the record, the comments came out about even, though more people made a point of noting they'd never expected to feel anything approaching goodwill toward Rita.) If you'd like to play along and haven't already, the stories are now up at my Ao3 account:

Between Prospects (Rita Skeeter/Mrs. Zabini, background Rita/others and Mr. Zabini/Mrs.Zabini; R for sexual situations and offscreen minor character deaths; 6333 words)
Strength in Numbers (Marietta Edgecombe, Millicent Bulstrode, Lavender Brown, background Percy Weasley/Audrey; G apart from one or two slightly naughty words; 5103 words)

Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention my gifts from both exchanges: a lovely Pansy/Millicent vignette by [personal profile] musyc for Beholder, and the even more unexpected but delightful platonic pairing of Pansy and Arthur for Springtime_Gen by [personal profile] lyras.

So, anyway, I think those are the important items. I know better than to promise more regular updates from now on, but I think I can at least guarantee greater frequency.

Yeah, I know this is a lousy substitute for actual business school updates, but I could use the help, so...if you've got an infant or know someone who does, could you please help my team out and take or pass along our short disposable diaper survey here: http://tinyurl.com/ylgug8s?  Responses are for educational purposes only and will be kept confidential, and any and all assistance is much appreciated!  Thanks!
