First off, I'm now done the first semester of my last year in high school (thank GOD, finally!) and aside from, ahem, forgetting to hand in a few psych assignments (and, um, one or two English assignments <.< >.>) I think everything went okay. I've spent the last two weeks running around trying to do damage control (read: hand in the more important assignments for those classes), but now I'll finally be able to get caught up with gifting/reading/reviewing/posting/etc. YAY!
Now, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to anyone and everyone who voted in hpfanficfanpoll
, because results went up today, and...
I'm so excited that "Her Lips Were Sweet" won first place - weirded out too, I'll admit! :D I popped "Her Lips Were Sweet" off in about twenty minutes for a femmeslash competition, and this is now the second award it's won (third, in a way, since one of the awards it won had two different tiers...). Odd xD No complaints, though! And I issue enormous congratulations to everyone else whose work was nominated and/or placed in the awards! :D
NOW LOOK LOOK AT THE PRETTY THING flyingharmony
MADE FOR ME!!!
There's something extra-special about Crucible-themed gifts that just makes me grin extra-wide (not that HP gifts don't make me grin extra-wide, of course!) Also, DAMN, Daniel Day-Lewis is just mmmmm
! I totally get why Abigail would go about killing half the village for him ;)
Claiming at dysfuncentine
is open! There are a lot of really amazing prompts ready to be claimed - every conceivable pairing, plus lots of "any" ones. Go here for the prompt list/claiming post
still needs more participants - it makes Gamma sad to see so few people signing up for such an awesome exchange. I will never understand why femmeslash is so underrepresented, but y'all should help fix that ;) (It makes me very happy to see so many people on my f'list signed up already, by the way - I hope I get to write for one of you!)
Posting is on for the winter fest at rarepair_shorts
, and SOMEONE WROTE ME LUCIUS/ALICE HOW DO I EVEN EXPRESS MY HAPPINESS? Lucius/Alice is one of the absolute rarest pairings of the many rare pairings that I ship - by which I mean that up until now, exactly no one except me (to my knowledge) ever written a real romance involving them. NO ONE. It's here and you should all read it :)
(Also, I bet none of you can guess what I wrote for the exchange... *giggles*). I'm going to go through and try to read them all later...
So, how are you all?
