this was totally supposed to be funnier than it ended up being. and also, you know, not written, probably. but.


[you know how they say], Buffy and Harry Potter (AU post HBP) crossover, Willow and Hermione.
"Willow, you tried to end the world." It sounds somehow smaller when Hermione says it. Not that anyone else really says it, but Willow can practically hear them all think it. "What, exactly, is the step after that?"


This is completely the fault of [livejournal.com profile] annakovsky, [livejournal.com profile] kyrafic, and [livejournal.com profile] throughadoor (who, like in days of yore, also beta-ed and consulted). Thanks to all of you, I guess? Title from a British Sea Power song.

Having the alien death flu had really fucked up my NYE. Ah, well. As long as it's not an indicator of things to come this year.

And now that it's Jan. 1, authors on all these secret santa exchanges are revealed, so:

[on a mission now], HP, Remus/Sirius
So the whole war thing, it's not good, but as Sirius pulls Remus along toward the portkey three blocks away, he can't help but think it has its merits.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] shackinup_sesa for [livejournal.com profile] yeats. Thanks to kel. and k8 for beta work and to [livejournal.com profile] musesfool for organizing.


[can nature change the seasons of the years], Rome, Octavian with hints of Octavian/Octavia
"Senators," Octavia's voice was quiet, but from Octavian's angle it seemed to rend the entire crowd into three pieces, all moving away from her as she moved towards him.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide for [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o. Thanks to the organizers.


Back to the coughing and the sleeping. Bleh.

I've been waiting for both to be assigned before doing this, so.

Dear [livejournal.com profile] shackinup_sesa writer,

I pretty much got to specify everything I wanted in my sign-up, but in case you're looking for more, I'll see what I can do. Just click )

Mostly, though, as long as it's Remus/Sirius and it's set at least no later than the end of OotP, I'll be happy. Because hey, story! For me! eeep!

much love,
K

Dear [livejournal.com profile] yuletide writer,

Mmmm...obscure. I truly love all the fandoms I chose, so whichever one matches your offer will be absolutely wonderful. Overall, I'm looking for a story that suits the fandom, either happy or not as needed. I'm very invested in the characters above all and I do appreciate the humor, even in the darker situations. I would prefer gen to porn in all cases, but do love the slash when it fits the story. So as not to bore the world (though I kind of love reading everyone's letters), click the cut for more specifics )

Anyway, no matter what you pick, I'm pretty pumped to get a story in all of these fandoms, so no worries. I'm sure it'll be excellent.

*mwah*

Today was a lovely day. Everyone was all chipper and enthusiastic. I mean, Work Crush asked me how my weekend was. That NEVER happens. I was so confused I didn't manage to actually answer like a normal person, but whatever.

Gingerbread lattes are back! This happened several days ago and I cheered at Starbucks like the wretch that I am, but I had one this morning and I'm sure this is what made the morning so awesome, so. Yes.

This Bill Simmons column mounting a defense of Terrell Owens is so the best thing I've ever read because even though I do believe that T.O. is crazy and an idiot and a jerk, it's nice to see all the other people who can be held accountable. Especially this:
3. White peopleIf Drew Bennett were pulling this crap, would you be this angry? It's like the old Chris Rock joke, "I haven't seen white people this angry since they canceled M*A*S*H." Maybe you white people need to look in the mirror and think about the real reason you hate Terrell Owens. Asalamalakum, my brother.


And I'm gonna go right ahead and use my M*A*S*H icon in honor of the anger of white people everywhere. Also 'cause I [heart] Alan Alda.

Now, CSPAN and I have a high-impact date with the TiVo that includes PTI, Rome, Smallville and maybe TWW. Mmmmmm...T.V.

The first day of the new year was remarkably productive: champagne at midnight, a rendition of "Friends in Low Places" sans guitar, site redesign, a viewing of Shattered Glass (much better than I expected, plus, you know, Peter Sarsgaard and you CAN NOT go wrong there), the grocery store, new colors and default, a viewing of Garden State (which I still don't like as much as most people, but there are enjoyable parts) and many new icons.

I'm impressed with myself, yo.

And, since it's the first, all the secret santas were revealed. Stories I wrote:

[on being a marauder, in spirit and to the letter: a guide to young love, honor, the pursuit of nonsense and other equally noble things] -- Remus/Sirius, for [livejournal.com profile] shackinup_sesa, thanks to kel. for the beta.

[like the fella once said] -- Ocean's 11, for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, thanks to imogen for the beta.

[house with unlocked doors] -- Buffy, Xander/Graham. (this was on the difficult side, I gotta tell you. my ability to grasp Graham's character wasn't quite up to par, but I hope it satisfied the recipient nonetheless)

And one last thank you to [livejournal.com profile] glossolalia, [livejournal.com profile] lisew and [livejournal.com profile] setissma for the wonderful stories I recieved in each of those challenges. And to those who organized them and did their best despite the chaos that comes with the job.

Now, food or sleep.

I'm pretty sure that [livejournal.com profile] lisew is going to kill me. I mean, I'm as sure of this as I am that BOOK SIX comes out in 205 days, 22 hours, 21 minutes and 35 seconds as of this moment. You know, just to pull an analogy out of nowhere.

Unrelatedly, have submitted [livejournal.com profile] shackinup_sesa fic and [livejournal.com profile] yuletide fic. Since I can't do it for real 'til later, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] throughadoor, [livejournal.com profile] imogenegomi, and [livejournal.com profile] circusgirl for the betas. Winning at life never felt so hard. To ease the pain, I give you a meme.

Faaaaanfiction writing survey )

And dude, why am I still awake? Why am I watching Wizard People, Dear Reader? Oh, right. Because kel. forced me. Well, she'll get hers when REMUS AND TONKS GET MARRIED IN A LOVELY CEREMONY JUST BEFORE PETER COMES IN WITH HIS SILVER HAND AND KILLS REMUS JUST AS SIRIUS POPS OUT OF THE LINT TRAP, SEES REMUS'S DEAD BODY AND FIGURES "OH HEY, WITH REMUS DEAD, GUESS I'LL MARRY TONKS" SO THEY HAVE A CEREMONY AT WHICH THEODORE NOTT IS THE BEST MAN.

Okay, this is just getting silly. Night, yo.
