This is my personal journal - I  lock most of the posts as friends only.  I do occasionally post to everyone, but those are usually to announce uploaded stories for my authors at PhoenixSong or my stories or Writer's Block.  I will also do PSA as everyone as well.

If you would like to be added as a friend, please comment and let me know why you'd like to be added.

If you're looking for my fic and icon journal, go here: [info]ogf_ficsandpics . My fics are also archived at PhoenixSong.

This is the first of the drabbles that I received requests for.  You can still request one here.

This one is actually 3X the word count that I said I was sticking to, but it demanded to be written.

For: lunamorgaine

The Marauders
PROMPT: Sirius found himself dangling by his toes from the rafters, a sprig of mistletoe in his mouth.

This isn't written from Sirius's POV, but rather from Remus's, Remus demanded that he have a hand in this.  All mistakes are mine.  I literally just sat down and wrote.

Word Count: 341


Mistletoe, Sirius?Collapse )

Drabbling!

Opening this up to anyone who wants one...
  You know, I'm just a sheep, right? I follow right along and steal take do what someone else may have already thought of.

So, in honor of my baaaaaa-iness, I'm going to steal take borrow aggiebell90's idea of holiday drabbles. I've been in the mood to write a bit, but nothing has hit me as "OHMYGOSHYOUNEEDTOWRITETHIS" sort of way.

So, I'm drabbling. And I'm asking for prompts. And I totally nicked the idea from aggiebell90 who has asked for drabble prompts herself.

So, rules. There has to be rules, right?

1. Drabble requests must be Christmas/New Year themed.
2. I will make them 100 word drabbles - no more, no less.
3. I reserve the right to later convert the drabble into a short story, if the spirit moves me.
4. Fandoms: Harry Potter only. I might be persuaded to give Percy Jackson a try. But that might be a stretch. I don't know that I know any other fandoms well enough to drabble in them.
5. Will do AU - especially if it involves Remus/Tonks. As in they're not daid. :)
6. Need to keep 'em clean, peeps. I won't write anything past a PG-13 in rating.

I'll write as many as I get - just because I probably won't get that many!

In other news - most of my posts are flocked.  If you are interested in being friends, let me know.  I'd like to know a bit about you before I friend you (how you found me, if you follow other friends of mine), and then I'll friend you.  I friend most requests.  You can request to be friended here or on my first post (dated 2015).

Heading to the last of the holiday parties today.  Merry Merry.  Happy Happy.

Mission Organization...again

I'm planning on starting my Mission Organization posts up again.  If you are interested in being included on the filtered list, leave me a comment.  I will need to add you (and add you as a friend, if I don't have you listed as a friend) before you'll receive the posts.

Also, if you're on the list and want off, I can remove you, too.

MO is my attempt to reorganize my house that has gone to pot.  I'm going to try to be accountable here to get things done.

So, in that spirit, here's a good article I found today that has inspired me to get started again.  I seemed to be overwhelmed a lot.

10 Ways to Avoid Organizing Overwhelm

Anyway, I'm making my list of what I want to go through.  Then I'll list small jobs in each (I'll probably do this more as I go along).

First room up:  Small room off the master bedroom (that could be a very small 6th bedroom, but we used to use it as a sitting room).

Pictures to come in the filter.

Because I couldn't resist doing this one ... Neville was the second result ... if you do this, be sure to look at the graphs at the end - they're pretty cool.


Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Lupin

Your perfect HP man is Remus Lupin.

You like a nice, kind guy with a bit of a fierce streak and you don't mind if he comes damaged. Sure, he may take some convincing since his self-esteem's so low, but once you win him over, you know he's yours for life. Unless of course he has an attack of "I'm not good enough" and runs away, but luckily he's also good at making friends who will push him back into line if necessary.

Happy Birthday, aggiebell90

Happy Birthday, [info]aggiebell90!!  I seriously hope you have a wonderful day and that you get some rest!!

In honor of Julie's birthday, I wrote!!  And I wrote Neville for our favorite Neville fangirl.  *squishes her*  These are Neville Moments - a collection of moments in Neville's life - after Deathly Hallows and forward.  These are each 100 word drabbles.  I chose this formate, because Julie wrote a collection of Remus/Tonks drabbles for me for my birthday (Impressions­ – go and read – you’ll be glad you did), so I decided to do the same style for her using Neville. These excerpts are in the order that they happened (or that I’d like to think they happened). I hope they live up to Julie’s (and yours, my reader) expectations of Neville.

 

One other quick note: the seventh and eighth drabbles are loosely based on Julie’s own Neville story, In My Garden. (Go and read that one, too – it’s fantastic). The setting and flowers used are the same as she used in her story.

There may eventually be another couple drabbles - there is at least one more niggling in my brain.  I've made an offer to Julie to come up with a scenario (or two or three) and I'd be happy to take a stab at it (or them).  So, it may an ever-growing project - like Neville's flowers. :).  Also, this it totally unbeta'd, so please be warned the mistakes are mine.

It poured. Torentially. We won 35-7. We let at the beginning of the fourth qtr. The band actually pulled out before that by a few minutes. They played some stand tunes tonight. That's it.

I'm cold and tireed. I'm going to go crawl under my heat blanket and go to sleep. 'Night all.

Thanks to the sloooowness of my computer!  Grrrr!

I just posted a new story to my fic journal, ogf_ficsandpics.  It's called The Journey Home 

It's Remus and Remus/Tonks.  If you're interested, go take a look and let me know what you think.  It's the first thing I've written in a LOOONG time.

Gotta run - have to be at soccer in 35 minutes, and I'm not dressed.  EEEK!

My wonderful author, aggiebell90, is turning out stories like no tomorrow! *hugs her and does a happy dance* She's posted another one on her fic journal, aggiestories.  This one is Neville as a child.  It's is absolutely stunning.  Go. Read. Review.  It'll be up at PhoenixSong as soon as we get a chance to get it up there.

Writer's Block: Finders keepers?

September 9th, 2009 (09:14 am)

If you found a $100 at the library, would you pocket it or turn it in? What about at a diner or pub? Confess!
I'm a pretty honest person, and I would turn it in.  The only time I've not turned in money is if it's lying on a sidewalk and there's no place to turn it in.

On a scorching day, do you prefer the beach or an air-conditioned movie theater?
Beach - I am very much a beach gal.  Having said that, I am particular about my beaches - I prefer coastal or gulf beaches to lake beaches.  I still go to lake beaches, but if I had my druthers, I'd be at the ocean in a heartbeat.

We vacation every summer as a family in Florida.  And we are always on the Atlantic Coast and always spend as much time as we can on the beach or at the pool which is beachside.  We have to travel in the summer, due to children in school, so we are almost always there in July, when the weather down in Florida is usually unbearably hot.  We have found that there is almost always a cool breeze by the ocean.

As retirement age starts to draw near, my husband and I have even talked of retiring at the beach.  We love the beach.
