Welcome to my fiction LiveJournal

I reserve the right not to friend people, even if they ask nicely.

If I know you already, you'll likely be added. If not, please explain why you would like me to allow you to read my fiction. Those who do not indicate their age are not very likely to be added, by the way -- the stories here are written for adult readers, not minors.

If you are not a legal adult -- I have this to say to you: Go. Away.

Not nominated, but thanks for the support

As a followup to this post about LJ Advisory Board elections, I'd like to thank those who supported me, even though I was unsuccessful in my bid for nomination. Your support was much appreciated.

Should I decide to try again in future, I'll do my post earlier, since it took quite a while (almost 8 hours!) for it to be approved and unscreened by the LJ staff moderators so that people could leave comments in support of my nomination bid. My wibbling about throwing my hat in this year led to the late posting as well -- I'll make my decision, yea or nay, sooner.

Nominating myself for LJ user representative to the Advisory Board

I must be daft, but I've tossed my hat in the ring to be the LJ user-rep to the Advisory Board. Nomination post not showing, since it's moderated, so I can't give a direct link to my entry. Go to lj_election_en to see it (look for theentwife) -- hopefully it will be viewable soon. Please leave a comment stating "I support this nomination" or something substantially similar to my nomination entry if you would like for me to be your voice to the people who run LiveJournal.

Edit (11:52am): Post is available now here.

Writing Year in Review

I've seen a few folks doing these "year in review" posts about their writings over the past year, so I thought I'd do the same, since this was my most productive year so far since starting to write Potterverse fanfiction.

Here are the 2009 stats (not counting micro-fics or autodrabbles):

21539 words written in total
6 stories written
5 stories rated G-for-gen
4 stories with at least one main character who was a werewolf
4 stories with at least one main character who was a member of the Maurauders
3 stories with at least one main character who was a Malfoy
3 stories with at least one main character who was a member of the Trio
2 stories starring Fenrir Greyback
2 stories starring Severus Snape
2 stories starring Sirius Black
2 stories with at least one main character who was a house-elf
1 story rated Not Work Safe

By contrast, here are the 2007 stats:

9031 words written in total
3 stories written
3 stories rated Not Work Safe
3 stories with at least one main character who was a werewolf
3 stories with at least one main character who was a member of the Trio
3 stories starring Fenrir Greyback
1 story with at least one main character who was a house-elf
0 stories starring Severus Snape
0 stories starring Sirius Black
0 stories with at least one main character who was a Malfoy
0 stories with at least one main character who was a member of the Maurauders
0 stories rated G-for-gen

For comparison, here are the 2006 stats:

9380 words written in total
4 stories written
4 stories rated G-for-gen
2 stories with at least one main character who was a Malfoy
2 stories starring Severus Snape
0 stories starring Fenrir Greyback
0 stories starring Sirius Black
0 stories with at least one main character who was a werewolf
0 stories with at least one main character who was a member of the Trio
0 stories with at least one main character who was a house-elf
0 stories with at least one main character who was a member of the Maurauders
0 stories rated Not Work Safe

Looking at these numbers, I think it safe to say I'm mostly a gen writer, and when I do write NWS material, it is likely to star either a werewolf or a canine animagus.

No, I do not have a furry fetish. Really.

A permanent home here on LJ for my tales

I just bought a permanent account for this fic LJ, so visitors here will no longer be subjected to advertisements. I also now have 195 userpic slots here, compared to the 6 I had when it was still a basic account. My main account, theentwife, also had its userpic allotment increased by 50, so I spent part of the evening uploading more icons to that account.

This is something I'd considered doing the last time LJ did a permanent account sale, in the aftermath of Strikethrough, but I'd wibbled and instead bought a permanent account at InsaneJournal, a decision I came to regret after repeated episodes of losing all comments on multiple entries. My only consolation there has been that it hadn't cost a lot -- but then again, one gets what one pays for. And with the new increased userpic slots (with more in future due to the loyalty userpic program), the amount of userpics here is not that far away from what I have available to use on IJ. Additionally, it's always possible the userpic limits could increase again in future, as they did today, so the incentive to remain at IJ decreases even further, particularly in light of the continued non-resolution of grave technical issues that affect that site's functionality.

By the way, in case anyone was wondering, due to health and other issues I wasn't able to do hardly anything with this year's NaNoWriMo project and even managed to put in even a smaller wordcount than last year's failed effort! (218 words versus 248 or so last year.) I am so made of fail for this -- oh well, there's always next year . . .

Fourth time is the charm for NaNoWriMo?



NaNoWriMo 2008


I've decided to try doing NaNoWriMo again, even though last year's effort was dismally inadequate.

I have many more plot bunnies than I had this time last year, plus they've had time to simmer in the back burner of my brain for quite a few months, so I'm hoping I'll do better than last year. (It would be hard to do worse!)

As I've done for the past two NaNoWriMos, I'll be writing Potterverse fics, a series of short stories, some of which will be connected to one another or to previously posted tales. At this point, it looks like most will star Fenrir Greyback, with several being Malfoy-family-centered. Some won't be though, since I want to add more to the "Contingencies" plot that I started during the 2006 NaNoWriMo and also the Snirius AU "Chewtoy" that has proved to be surprisingly popular among those who read me. I've been suffering the slow death of plot bunnies nibbling at me constantly for the past few months, while real-life swirled around me and made it difficult to concentrate long enough to write anything. This way at least I'll have a chance to clear out some of these untold tales that have been niggling at me for so many months.

I have no clue as to whether or not I'll hit the 50,000 word mark by the target date of November 30th, but at least I'll feel better with less of a backlog to deal with.

For those who wish to follow my progress, my author page is here.

A Fenmione auto-drabble

I blame foudebassan for this -- she introduced me to the auto-drabbler and suggested I put Fenrir in as one of the characters. It came out surprisingly coherent, so I thought I'd share the silliness. (Especially since the holidays are rapidly approaching.)


I Saw Hermione Kissing Santa Claus

Fenrir woke up in the middle of the night. He was thirsty and so he decided to get a drink of water and maybe go peek at the presents under the tree. Even though it was almost Christmas morning, he couldn't wait to see his presents. There was one laconic box that looked like a book.

Then Fenrir noticed that Hermione was out of bed too. She must not have been able to wait for her presents either.

Fenrir thought that he would surprise Hermione. Maybe even sneak up behind her and lick her on her musical tongue. That always made Hermione opalescent.

Fenrir crept joyously down the stairs and into the living room. There was the tree, with its effervescent lights, and the presents, heaped up ferociously, and the mistletoe hanging from the ceiling, and Hermione. Kissing someone.

Fenrir was so angry, he picked up a bunny slipper from a table and threw it gloriously on the floor.

They both looked around.

"Hermione, you lupine wolf!" Fenrir yelled. "How could you cheat on me with...with..." Fenrir looked and then rubbed his finger and looked again. It was Santa Claus.

"Let me explain," Hermione said. "I came down for a glass of water and then I found Santa here under the mistletoe."

"Ho! Ho! Ho!" Santa said. "So of course she had to give me a kiss. And what a tasty kiss it was."

"Well, I suppose," Fenrir said snarkily. "If he was under the mistletoe."

"Ho! Ho! Ho!" Santa said. "Why don't you give me a kiss too? Then things will be intelligent."

That seemed reasonable. Fenrir went over under the mistletoe and kissed Santa.

Santa was the best kisser ever, like a fish needs a bicycle. He made Fenrir's tooth feel all vapid.

"You see?" Hermione said lovingly and Fenrir saw. So they had a threeway.

Everybody's presents were late.
