Hello, everyone!

Like every person in the Universe - and their mother - I've somewhat migrated to DW with synchronised posting to LJ - and to be honest, I'm kind of hating it because I haven't managed to study all the settings and whatnots of it.

Does anyone know if there is a setting DW where you can set for the DW to alert you with an e-mail that your DW friend(s) have posted something? I honestly don't even remember browsing through Friends page and I'm afraid that I'm going to lose contact with most of you because I simply won't be nudged enough to follow what you guys have been up to.

That's how I had it set up with LJ - and if you still cross-post there, I'll see it - and that's how I'd like to have it set up in DW. I'm afraid I'll fall out of touch with everyone if I have to go browsing over my friends' page simply because I won't remember to in all my busy-ness.

I'll try to post a little update some time later in the week when my son is gone for school trip - I'm bound to have more time at some point! :)

*sends hugs to everyone across the fandom*

 I keep forgetting to mirror my posting from LJ to here. *sigh* Looks like I'm going to have to reverse the order and begin to post here first and then just tick the box where it mirrors the posting to LJ. The way things are going with LJ, I'm beginning to think about packing my bags, or just leaving my account open for reading my friends' updates and not really posting primarily there anymore. 
The character limit is not very friendly to my Bible-sized fics, they no longer send friending and b-day notifications and I'm considering packing my bags and moving house to here. I mean, it's not like I've got many friends and my posts and stories never generate massive response, but I suppose I can live with that. But I hate appearing an idiot that ignores people's b-days and friending requests and if this keeps up I don't think I'll bother to be very active member of the LJ community anymore. Which is a shame, I really liked it there, and dreamwidth doesn't feel quite like home yet. *grunt*
So, in order to rectify the mirroring bit of my posting - here's my post from last night in an unlikely event that anyone cares, LOL. :) 
 
Last night's LJ entry... nothing major, might as well skip )
In fandom/Lj related news: after digthewriter 's post about LJ no longer sending out friend notifications, I went to check out mine, just to discover that I have 3 new friends I never added back. :( That was immediately rectified, however it's hard not to feel a complete and utter idiot after that, so dear new friends, here are my profound apologies. (And a kick in the butt to you, LJ!) Because of the younger son's illness I'm also awfully behind on my Ron/Draco entry - it's literally been going nowhere lately, so I hope I can pull it together in time - if this prolonged stay at home continues for much longer, I might have to ask for extension (hopefully, I won't embarrass myself completely and drop out).
 
I haven't watched the Inauguration, but the first moves of The Orange One is taking are not promising: Withdrawing from Trans-pacific partnership or the proposed bill to pull the USA out of the United Nations (perhaps we need reminding that Hitler pulled out of the League of Nations before the WWII) - not to mention the monstrosity that is The global gag rule he just re-instated - now, these developments are not something that fills me with optimism - but then again the Dutch are more than up to the job of cheering me up with this "welcome" to the most megalomanic president ever - it made me giggle out loud and because it has English subtitles, you'll be able to enjoy it as well. :) I suppose as long as there is humour in this world, there is some hope left. Never mind the gloomy ol' me, I'll get over myself. :)

One of those dreadful weeks again - the little one is still ill, vomiting for nearly a week now, so we went back to the doctor and we're hopeful he'll be better by Wednesday, when he has his 7th birthday. The bed we ordered for him as a present 10 days ago is still not here, so I shouted at the shop assistant today and I blackmailed him into free delivery if the bed is not here by Wednesday - it's only good customer service, in this Slytherin opinion. ;)

I went to pick up son no.1 today at school only to find him shouting hysterically - apparently he had gotten in a fight with five other boys, broke up their ice sculpture and smacked a boy - an innocent bystander at that - in the mouth and gave him a split lip. His father was absolutely livid when he phoned the school, apparently. How will this impulse-driven Asperger son of mine ever avoid jail in the future, it's anyone's guess. *sigh* We try to explain the working of the system to him - if he becomes uncontrollably or too impulsively violent, he's going to end up institutionalised one way or another - and there won't be a damn thing I can do about that once he grows up. Not a very optimistic thought, I reckon. :(

Seriously, this fandom... it's just going to make me all bawl-y and sentimental, you know! *sniffs something silly*

So, the thing is, I'm not quite 45 yeat, but I'm going in that direction with the speed of light and it should happen in about another blink or two. But but but, the forever lovely [livejournal.com profile] capitu - who just happens to be the most considerate angel any fandom's ever had (capitu for fandom president! 100% in favour? Good, good!) - made me this absolutely lovely early birthday present, because she would be travelling on the "B"-day and won't be able to be around.

It's a banner for the first story of mine she ever read, called The Butterfly Effect and it's the a silly Ron/Draco story that brought us together as friends and shall be as such forever cherished by the awe-struck yours truly. Just look at this masterpiece:

113163_original-capitu

Isn't this brilliant?! How is this not the loveliest thing ever?! :)))) *sighs happily, flailing around the room like a chopper* I love the dark skies as a contrast to two wonderful creatures of the night, chasing each other towards the moon... *swoons* It's so romantic and lovely I just want to go and live in that picture! :)

Darling [livejournal.com profile] capitu - words fail me, but thank you, so, so much for just being around (even if it's a couple of days early, who cares, beats being late by all means!) and choosing me as your friend! Clicking that "add a friend" button might have just been the best fandom thing that happened to me. :) *hugs you tight and refuses to let go*
my_thestral: (dragon)
Wow, would you look at this idea of fandom love meme!



It has got wings like Hungarian Hortail! More than 700 comments as I write! And why not, it's a brilliant idea! I got some love myself (was stupidly proud, and it got me silly sentimental, you folks are the best! *beams like a happy little sun*) and I gave some out in return (go on, check yourselves out!). I'm so happy and proud to be part of this fandom! :D *hugs you all, why not, that's special house-elf magic, I can totally do that!)

Hey, y'all! I've got a question - and a bit of promotion - to do. I was wondering if any of you knew if there were any communities out there to post a lovely Neville Longbottom/Theodore Nott story. You see, a fandom friend of mine [livejournal.com profile] philharmony just finished her first fandom story (yey, everyone, this is where we throw our hats in the air! :D), and it's great, so I think more people should read it.

You think [livejournal.com profile] hp_fanfiction or [livejournal.com profile] hp_slash would be appropriate if there isn't anything more specifically dedicated to Neville? I wish I wasn't so damn clumsy navigating the LJ, so I hope someone of you, lovely, smart folks, might have some idea. :) A lot of work went into this story - it's over 90K long - and I really like all the colourful characters and the interesting plot, so I'm kind of hoping you'd be willing to help me out.

Anyway, not to sell you a cat in a bag - the story is called My cup of tea and it introduces us to Theodore Nott, working as an Unspeakable at the Ministry, caught in the daily routine of his rather solitary post-war existence. That is, until his world is turned upside down by a visting Neville, who only wanted to borrow a tea-bag, and managed to snatch Theo's heart away somehow. But you know what happens when you mix Slytherins and Gryffindors - a lot of action, that's what! :) This story has lovely scenery, adorable characters (old and new) and a very intriguing plot (with a proper villain and all!) and it's all the way hot and wonderful, so if you're up for a bit longer read, I'm certain you will end up appreciating it! And since everyone can always use a bit of help promoting their talent - that's what I'm up to today... :)

Any info will be appreciated and thanks heaps for your help! :)

Sooo, I did this one last year - it was my first Ron/Scorpius (and a first proper cross-gen ever, to be honest) - and it was fun! :) So if anyone is thus inclined to pair a certain (undoubtedly) attractive blond with (undoubtedly) a temperamental redhead - fire away! :)




Join for an end of the year fest! We'll need prompts from everyone, betas to look over pieces, people to make art or fanfic, and people to enjoy the fan works when posting opens in November! So it doesn't matter what you like to do, we'll need everyone for something.

See our info post here.

There was an entertaining challenge posted this week by [livejournal.com profile] akatnamedeaster regarding drawing, and because it's Friday and I'm up to some fun I could do with some further embarrassing of myself, LOL!
Here's the banner to the challenge:





And here's my entry:

Well, yes, I'm aware that I'm on the other spectrum of talented, so this will definitelly call for subtitles: it's meant to be Scorpius Malfoy, enjoying his first morning coffee served by his lover. :)
Morning,love
LOL, giggle all you like, you know I am! :D This is fun! 
my_thestral: (dragon)
So has everyone gotten their copy now and read it so I can finally talk about how great the show is?! :D
Just kidding - I will keep silent for that one person I'm sure I know that didn't manage to get familiar with it yet - BUT THE SHOW WAS SO GREAT! :D

I'd go again! My b-day is in November. Just saying... :D
my_thestral: (dragon)
... don't forget!

Dammit, BF's brother with his son are visiting and I can't really write in the evenings - and I just started another piece! it's hard to focus with being interrupted every 3 seconds and with howls of laughter coming from the other side of the room, accompanied by "you've gotta come and see this"... no, I really don't. :P But I know that BF misses hearing his native language and his family, so I'm trying to be less grumpy than usual when my "evening plans" don't happen. But they can't stop me from doodling,can they?! *mwahahahaha*  Sadly. Oh, boy, I really should keep my day job. *giggles madly*

Hmmm... I just made a stupidly long London post, pic-spam and all, which I've been putting together since yesterday and I think I must have screwed up something - at one point it wasn't showing. Can someone please check if this link is working, before I kick this stupid punk of my lap top in its chip-y butt?! Thank you in advance, whichever good soul you are! :)
my_thestral: (dragon)
Hellooooo, there, darlings!
Missed me? *this is where you say yes and nod furiously and try to look sincere, LOL! Also, squeal at will... ;)* Oh, damn, it's no use, is it? I guess most of you never noticed I left, because I post so rarely - BUT - those of you who did - I'M BAAAACK!

London was glorious as always (I'll make a separate post about that) - and The Harry Potter and the Cursed Child plays are definitely a thing to see (it's just not something you can read about and dis at will because seeing it is a totally different experience than reading about it and I'll argue with you about that until we're both blue in the face *picture feisty grin on a muddy face with a few teeth missing*). I'd definitely see them again in a heartbeat if I was offered a chance! They're just bloody adorable, that's what they are! :D That Ron... seriously. *big smile* And Scorpius, the show-stealing Malfoy! So, that was my Cursed child pimping - no spoilers without a warning, just like I promised! - and now to some serious promoting/pimping business:

- Our beloved [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest will be back with us shortly (well, time is kind of relative anyway, but the fest's importance can't be overstated!) - so I can't jump at the chance to promote it fast enough - I mean just look at this adorable banner - who could resist, seriousyl?!:



come join [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest!

- In case you're not aware, there's a new fest open that sounds interesting if one is a lover of music - and I am - and a Potterhead - blimey, I'm that as well! So, without further ado - please check it out and I hope you feel like giving it a go:



Aaaaand I think this is it from me before I disappear into the night. I'm kind of buried in e-mails and messages at the moment, so I apologize, if I won't be able to reply to all of you very soon - but I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can. I missed the fandom and you all! :)
my_thestral: (dragon)
... it would probably look something like this. Dear [livejournal.com profile] capitu, I'm certain your waffles looked better! :D Mine... erm, don't.
my_thestral: (dragon)
Happy birthday to my favorite hero side-dish and magical character Ron Weasley! You're good enough to eat, Ronnie, I'd even have you in a salad, and that's saying something for this sworn carnivore! :)
