Can't nab pictures with the site down, unfortunately, but here's the essential info:

Finally!

Wand and house updates will be forthcoming (don't have time to play just yet), but I'm JinxSeer199 if anyone wants to go ahead and friend me.

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.

Haven't been updating because I have very little good to say when school isn't trying to kill me (which is a big part of why I have very little good to say, come to think of it), but you have to take some time and read the fantastic [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen gift I got. It's Amelia Bones, and there's Moody, and Umbridge being awful, and internal battles, and it's amazing. Go. Read. Love.

I may have gotten a tad carried away, but...it was for the cats! How can you blame me?

Anyway, here's my assigned drabble for [livejournal.com profile] pauraque, who wanted a threesome in which one participant realized s/he was the odd one out:

Generous to a Fault (Fred/Angelina, George/Angelina; R for a threesome gone wrong in a non-incesty way; 300 words)

And here are the two I decided to pinch-hit:

Wit and Learning (Gen: Hermione and Ravenclaws; G; drabble)
Annuals (Gen: Neville; G; drabble)

And here is the one written for me, which I swear the Sorting Cats hand-picked, because I can't think of anyone better suited to handle a history-themed prompt than [livejournal.com profile] a_t_rain. And she doesn't disappoint here: Wand of Elder, Never Prosper (Gen; G; 300 words)

There are still a few prompts up for grabs until about 7 pm Eastern Time, by the way, if anyone wants to jump in.

(x-posted)

It's back! Go visit [livejournal.com profile] mctabby for details before 6 pm GMT on July 25.

Pardon a bit of crypticness, but suffice it to say for the moment that I am really, really happy about the timing.

My 2009 [insanejournal.com profile] hp_beholder entry, plus a pair of drabbles I missed from [livejournal.com profile] mctabby's 2007 Cat's Birthday Drabblethon.

Drabbles
Untitled (The Malfoy family line is not as pure as they would like to think). (Gen: Lucius Malfoy; G.)
Untitled (Scrimgeour Family Reunion). (Gen: Rufus Scrimgeour; G.)

Fic
Lady of Sorrows. (The Grey Lady/Sir Cadogan; PG; 5274 words.) A budding romance between a ghost and a portrait could be a tale out of a storybook. But does Helena Ravenclaw's "fairy godfather" have good intentions, or something more sinister in mind?

(Don't want this journal to be totally empty in the unlikely event someone wanders over here after the [insanejournal.com profile] hp_beholder reveals.)

Drabbles
For 2008_drabbles (original comm has been deleted, alas):
Table I, Political. (15 drabbles, gen and various pairings, highest rating PG.) Of particular note: The Cruelest Cut. (Gen: Susan Bones; PG. Third Place - Best Canon Compliant.)
Table C, Women. (8 drabbles, gen and various pairings, highest rating PG.) Of particular note: Look at Me. (Gen: Madam Rosmerta, Minerva McGonagall; PG. Third Place - Best Gen.)

For [insanejournal.com profile] phoenix_flies, from strongest to weakest:
Irreparable Damage. (Gen: Percy Weasley, G.)
Intoxication. (Neville Longbottom/Hannah Abbott, G.)
Something in Common. (Viktor Krum/Penelope Clearwater, implied Ron Weasley/Hermione Granger; G.)
The Messenger. (Gen: Parvati Patil, with implied Ron Weasley/Lavender Brown and Ron Weasley/Hermione Granger; G.)

Fic
For [insanejournal.com profile] hp_beholder:
Driving Mrs. Weasley. (Molly Weasley/Arthur Weasley; G; 1403 words). In a missing moment from Chamber of Secrets, Molly and Arthur make up after the Ford Anglia fight.

For [livejournal.com profile] hp_rarities:
Something Old, Something New. (Pansy Parkinson/Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson/Ron Weasley; PG-13; 6688 words.) Draco Malfoy is getting married. To someone who isn't Pansy Parkinson. Drastic measures must be taken.

For [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest:
Immutability. (Gen: Minerva McGonagall, Amelia Bones; PG; 1162 words.) Miss Bones has a problem Minerva doesn't think she can solve. She's more right than she realizes.

Before I get to the meme and my own work, if you are a fan of Potter rarepairs, please go show the fic I received for [insanejournal.com profile] hp_beholder some love. It's a short little PG-rated scene of cat and mouse between Rufus Scrimgeour and Rita Skeeter set during the First War, and it's a lot of fun. (Ignore the author's disclaimer; her Rita's just fine.)

Such Is the Flare Through.
