Advent Calendar for NaNoWriMo?

Hey all,

Would any of the fanfic writers be interested in a Christmas/holiday advent calendar challenge for NaNoWriMo? I think it's been a minute since anyone in the community has done one.

If there's interest, I'll make a word/phrase/pic list of 100 and I'll open a screened response post on 10/31 where people can leave their 25 numbers. Prompts will go out November 1-25 and will be "due" December 1-25, but I'm keeping this very casual and loose--no dings for forgetting or dropping out, no worries about posting late, no count minimums or maximums, just good, throwback, Christmassy-flavored fanfic fun!

Any takers?

Might Be Quiet For A Bit

Hey guys, I'm having medical issues, moving issues, and identity theft issues all circling around. I'm literally spending every spare moment right now making phone calls and yet all I'm doing is disappointing people because things are so scattered. I am doing my best, but something is going to have to give, and it's going to have to be my fandom presence right now. Know that I am okay, but I need some space to try to get things fixed.

XOXO

The Ides of March

All elbows.
I’d forgotten that you were all elbows, and knees.
And long, coltish lines shaped like young boy.

I watched from the window
or sometimes
from the steps
in the strange world
I only half belonged to.
(You only half belonged, too.)

I liked the way you
pushed your hair back;
dark curtains that sparked
fire in the sun.
I liked your roller blades.
So did you,
even though
your knees
were always covered in plasters.

You went away,
and then I did.
I did not know
that it was for the last time.


Your face is not his face.
Sometimes I see him,
like a blurred reflection on water
that I cannot touch
without making him go.

I wonder if
I am the only one
who knows
that he is inside of you.

I wonder if
I am the only one
who believes
that he is inside of you.

Birthday Magic?

Thursday, February 21, is my 35th birthday. It would have been Alan's 73rd. I have always been so honored to share with him -- and I must have wanted to, since I was actually due JANUARY 21, 1984 and was exactly one month late! This probably sounds a little crazy, but when I'm having a tough time or when I wish he could help me the way he did when I was foundering in grad school, I talk aloud to him. I don't even think I believe in an afterlife, but I feel like there's SOME order to the universe and maybe somewhere, somehow, he can hear me. Lately I've been really struggling to keep a promise I once made to him. Sitting in my living room a couple of months ago I said, "I'm going through SO much shit right now. I've done my best, I really have, and I don't think you could have expected any more from me." Even though I've been feeling a little guilty about it, I convinced myself that if others, as they have expressed, thought it was a futile effort to fulfill that promise, then I should give up.

Today I was looking online for a particular picture of Alan from the 90s--I can see it in my head, but I can't remember where it was published. Every year since 2016 I print out a picture of him and put it in a frame near my cake (or brownies, last year) and light two candles to blow out. Anyway, completely by accident I stumbled across a picture of Alan and a couple of other people. One of the people is the person my promise to Alan was centered around. There was NO reason that this very old (c. 1996-1997) picture should have come up on page one of my search, given the specific search terms that I used. I am a science-minded person, pragmatic to a fault oftentimes, but I want so badly to believe that stumbling across that image was a purposeful nudge. "Hey! A promise is a promise." (Dare I say, an unbreakable vow?)

Happy Birthday, A.

XOXO

I am putting together an awesome convention for summer 2020, United Kingdom Con! We are dedicated to bringing a bit of Britain to the United States (Las Vegas)! Our hope is to have special guests from British shows and films you know and love; panel presenters who are experts in the fields of British history, culture, and entertainment; an amazing lineup of British comedians; an unparalleled group of British writers; an exciting vendor hall full of souvenirs celebrating all things that make the little isles so magical!

BUT I need to expand my team!

If you are at all interested in working with a group of fun, supportive (sweary) people and are very organized--ESPECIALLY if you have event planning or accounting or other similar professional experience--PLEASE message me!

Even if you are not interested, a signal boost would be wonderful! Thank you! XOXO

Lavender/Parvati?

Okay, who are my femmeslash people? I've had a request for Lavender/Parvati recommendations, so please give me yours?

She's also asked for Dramione recs, so I'd love more of those, as well!

And a signal boost is always appreciated. ❤️

TIA!

FAVOR REQUEST

Hey all! I am hoping that at least one of you might be able to help with a favor!

You may know of one of our fandom's tiniest (and most beloved) members, Juniper, The Girl Who Lived. A couple of months ago, Junie and her family were special guests at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, where her parents purchased a small, stuffed owl for her. Unfortunately, she was recently sick on the owl, and because of her immune system, it had to be disposed of. She is missing her stuffed owl desperately.

Her mom, Kelley, has contacted the theater and, unfortunately, they won't let her purchase a replacement owl to be sent to her. They will ONLY sell the stuffed owls to those attending the play. This brings me to my request:

IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW IS ATTENDING CURSED CHILD WITHIN THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO, COULD YOU PLEASE CONTACT ME? I AM HAPPY TO PAYPAL THE COST OF THE OWL AND SHIPPING TO SOMEONE WILLING TO PICK ONE UP AND MAIL IT TO JUNIE AND HER FAMILY.

IF NOTHING ELSE, COULD YOU PLEASE  SHARE THIS POST TO SPREAD THIS REQUEST THROUGH OUR LITTLE FAMILY?

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!

Issues

I'm sorry that Mistaking Malfoy is stalled! I would also like to put my Smutty Claus fest fic here, since reveals are up. HOWEVER, this POS is only allowing me teeny, tiny text (which is what I see on this entry) or huge, massive text. Anyone else having this issue?

ATTENTION! I WILL BE REMOVING ALL CONTENT (SEE BELOW)!
