"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space."

Hi there! Here you will find my musings, rantings, and the occasional update on writing, both original and fanfiction. For the purposes of privacy, nearly everything (with the exception of a couple of one-shots) is friend-locked. If you're interested, feel free to comment on this post, and I will add you as a friend!

UR Gift Exchange

Since the Gift Exchange is over? On hold? I believe we've gotten permission to post our fics, so here we go!

A Marauder Holiday for Pogonotrophy (Yay Christine!)

A couple of notes: Considering that I wrote this in about four days, I'm pretty happy with this piece. Perhaps it's a little cliché (I can envision this oneshot far too perfectly within my mind for it to be completely original), but I like to think of it as my interpretation of these old clichés. Well, there was a prompt, you see.

The Prompt: Platitudes. What was I going to do with that? When I looked it up, I found that platitude had all these lovely synonyms: trite, vapid, overdone, and clichéd.

So, there you have it. This is why my fic is the way it is. And I'd never truly written a "classic" Marauder fic, so I thought it would be interesting.

Another note - some people commented on a possible Remus-y crush on Lily, but I actually still had my mind stuck in dogdaysofsummer  mode, so I was actually thinking the beginnings of Remus/Sirius. Remus' views of Lily were, for me, influenced by Remus' deep friendship with Lily. And also Remus' keen observational skills. Additionally, Remus, as a single and lonely bloke, is mildly jealous of any happy couple. Hurrah.

Also, I'm so happy that my gift was for Pogonotrophy/Christine. Because Christine is totally awesomesauce.

Italian Translation
Runaway Bride
The Italian Version: In Their Own Words

If anyone's interested, here's the link. Credit goes to foxfeina for the translation (I don't really know if it's accurate or not).

Also, chapter 12 of A Knack for Things has just been sent to the beta, paperrose. I'm not really happy with how slow it is, but I'm really pumped for chapter 13 (it's not written yet, but ideas have been circulating in my head for a month now - Hogsmeade! Sirius! Butterbeer!)

In the future, I think I'll be posting my writing on here, as well as on UR.

I still have no idea why I'm up at 3:13 AM.

But the second entry was January Blooms, which is somewhere down below, I believe I've marked it as memorable. I hope so, anyway. :)
