I got to wax a little bit poetic about JK Rowling & Harry Potter over in Adventures in YA Publishing today. That was a lot of fun.

In case you didn't know, I got my start in fanfiction in the Harry Potter world, and went on to fame and fortune as a beta reader and staff member at the now-defunct Sugar Quill, where I had the (now-embarrassing) screen name Lady Narcissa. I didn't know any better at the time! We had some fun there, though, especially on roleplaying days. I could use all the lingo and say it was siriusly fun (Sirius was my first-ever RP character! Talk about a challenge!), and fess up that it was me behind the Sirius character at the Quill. I was also Lucius Malfoy there, and a few other characters on RP days. I sure don't remember them all now! James. Bill Weasley. More, I don't know who all! Sirius always got mobbed. I remember a 48-hour period where I didn't even see my family, I was so busy with Sirius's responsibilities at Grimmauld Place. Phew.

That was a long time ago. Don't tell anyone that these days I can barely tell the difference between Expelliarmus and Alohomora, okay? Thanks. Must be time for a re-read!

YO HO HO EVERYONE! My lovely friend [personal profile] vivien isn't doing Yuletide this year, but that shouldn't stop her from getting a fic! Viv requested Albus Dumbledore and Father Christmas. Who am I to say no? HAPPY CHRISTMAS, VIV!

What's in a name? )

This was my last prompt in the December meme. Thanks for playing along with me, I had too much fun. Happy Christmas, everyone who celebrates it. Have a wonderful day.

(I know I'm a little early, hush. Tomorrow's going to be a busy day.)

[ profile] kit_the_brave requested a fandom mashup: two characters who wouldn't normally encounter each other meet while Christmas shopping.

No gag gifts, please... )
in_the_blue: (we're... friends!)
(or close enough!)

For the December meme, [personal profile] jules1278 requested Sirius's favorite Christmas.

Here you go, and happy birthday, Juli! )

Why am I not surprised that half the requests I got for this December meme are for Harry Potter stories? YOU GUYS. Actually, I met so many people here through that fandom, and now I'm tempted to do an entire series reread on the New Year. Who's with me?

For today, [ profile] bitchet requested A Black Family Christmas, so here goes.

Deck the Halls with Heads of House-Elves... )

For December 1, [ profile] miriammoules requested a Harry Potter story based on the carol I heard the bells on Christmas day. My friend, I hope this fits the... er... bill.

Without further ado... (700 words of HP fluff!) )

So yesterday I went to see Deathly Hallows, Part 2. Spoilers, of course.

Caveat: I only read the book once. )

Keep a poor girl from smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo getting bored?

First eight people who comment with a prompt, I'll write you a ficlet. You know my interests and fandoms, so have at it.

Edited to add: YOU PEOPLE HAVE LOST ON THE BRAIN! Don't let the number of comments fool you. I have room for more.
