i win!

IIII am in Montreal right now at goldy_dollar's aunt's house. It is very nice and I think one of the dogs has taken a liking to me. Yesterday I was made to climb a mountain but I think I have now more or less physically recovered. Today we plan to counteract all that physical activity with cupcakes and poutine. This is good because I am much better at sitting and eating than I am at climbing mountains.

You would think I might have more to say, but I really don't. I will get back to that 30 Day Meme when I get home I think. In the meantime, I rec you THE BEST FIC EVER:

Title: Chicken Soup for the Dark Wizard's Soul by fireicerage906
Fandom & Characters/Pairings: Harry Potter, Dumbledore/Grindewald
Why you should read it: Because it is the greatest thing on the internet.
Excerpt: “You mean...” Grindelwald’s face twisted with disgust. “You’re just going to keep me?”

“I... No.” Dumbledore let out a frustrated sigh. “Perhaps... perhaps I’ve been at Hogwarts for too long. Maybe it’s time I settled down, time I cared for someone else. I could take care of you. Gellert, I could help you.”

fic exchange rec & a fandom meme

I still lack updates of any kind, though I did finish my fic for UR.org's Christmas fic exchange. Naturally it's still i posting and secrecy mode so I cannot link you to any fic of mine that may or may not be posted yet, but that's where I've been. Well, that and exams. I also have one tomorrow. I should study, yes? But it's philosophy and philosophy is stupid because a) even when you know it, you don't do really well and b) even when you don't know it you don't do really poorly. Or, well, that's been my experience, anyway. Huzzah for circular definitions and post hoc fallacy and blah blah...

Yeah, I'm enthused.

Also! The fic someone wrote for me was posted, so it is my duty to rec it here. Yay.

Title: The Final Stage
Rating: PG-13
Summary: 12 Grimmauld Place is nobody's idea of the perfect place for a party. Yet that is where Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Nymphadora Tonks find themselves spending the fourteenth anniversary of Voldemort's defeat. Overwhelmed by memories of that Halloween night, the three just want to drink brandy and forget.

It is basically exactly what I was going for, which is impressive since I am apparently incapable of writing a half-decent prompt. Yay, mystery author! (Yeah, no, I actually don't know who it was. Mysterrryyy. *waves fingers spookily*)

As another means of procrastination, here's a random meme! Yay! I don't know. Um, go wild. (Give me other ways to procrastinate!)

reached back like a pimp and i slapped the ho

I wanted to pimp this story, and it's not mine, so I don't feel bad about doing it.

Title: The Two-Step of Death
Author: Lady_Game of UR.org
Rating: PG-13
Summary: "In the end, they all dance to the music of two words and a flash of green light. These are the stories of the last ten victims of Lord Voldemort. A 10x100, post-HBP."
Excerpt: Petunia Dursley spent half her life running from her sister’s world. What was unfortunate for Petunia was that the Wizarding world had reasons to run after her.
Why You Should Read It: The above excerpt is only one of about five zillion awesome lines in this fic; I chose that one because it's near the very start so it was easy for me to find. It is the best fic of its kind I can recall reading. I wrote a hideously gushy review because I quite adore it. Go read it, right now. It is wonderfully creative and the characters it focuses on are refreshingly unique, as is the ending.

While I'm in the business of pimping things, this is the best fanart version of Snape's Worst Memory that I have stumbled across in my travels. GO worship its pretty prismacolours and perfect Sirus, James and Lily (among others).

TRULY enlightening stuff here, folks.

Silly Love Songs is ... going, albeit slowly. Going. Haha.

oh, ho, the mistletoe, hung where you can see

So over at UR's fanart section, Pamela drew a pretty little picture and said, and I quote, but the picture is absolutely perfect to wrie a short story about so if anyone feels inspired to....

Having had an inexplicable urge to write some otherwise mindless drabble fun, I took her up on the offer. Yay.

Title: Kiss'er Once For Me
Rating: G, man.
Summary: Is it really neccessary? Look at the picture, man, that is a summary in itself.
Excerpt: “You think it’s very funny, do you, having enchanted snowmen – six enchanted snowmen – pelt people with snowballs the instant they walk out the door? The first years can’t even – they’re bigger than the first years, Potter, the snowmen are bigger than the students, they haven’t a hope. You find this funny?”

“That does sound rather funny, yeah,” he admitted, smiling amusedly.

It is by no means the best thign I've ever written. ...But ah well. =)
