I was going to make the "Ask me anything" meme that is going around, but after asking (and reading answers) I'm a bit scared. :D You guys are filthy! ILYSM. <3

Reveals are up at [livejournal.com profile] dracotops_harry, and, man, it was so much fun guessing with [livejournal.com profile] snowgall. :D

It got me thinking though.

I love commenting, I do. And it's just that, whether is a friend's fic, or someone I don't know very well, or someone I've never talked to before, when that author answers me back and say things like, 'This comment made my day!' or 'I'm so happy you like it,' or 'that's exactly what I was trying to say', for that brief moment you've made a connexion with that person, you know?

You made that person feel good, made them smile, and that's powerful, man. And from then on, when I see them again – another fic or art, another fest – I imagine they see my username and I see theirs, and we smile or nod in a, 'hey, I remember you,' kind of way, even if it was a short interaction, we're not strangers any more, because for a moment, they gave me something, a story, an art, a moment in a world they created, and because of my comment, I meant something to them, too. It's wonderful. Comments are

Yeah, okay, I'll shut up. ^^

But, hey, recs! :D

The [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkarts's Horror fest Finished posting, and there has been lovely stuff posted there. And by "lovely" I mean totally creepy and awesome. :D

Here are some of my favourites. Scary and awesome stuff ahead – mind the warnings in each post:

Gen, slash and het and fanart. :D )

And because you might need cheerful stuff, a few from [livejournal.com profile] hds_beltane, which is still posting! :D

H/D/S )

Now I'm off to keep asking. Happy weekend, I hope! ♥

Hufflepuff


The Comment a Thon has come to an end. I had a blast with this. Went absolutely mad! Well, [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore and I did and [livejournal.com profile] traintracks embraced the madness.:D

There were very few Hufflepuffs, but we're diligent and hard workers. And we fight to the BITTER, BITTER END.

And so even if we don't win I think we did REALLY WELL. I'm proud of what we did! Erm, yeah. You might think things, 'crazy' and 'wft!!!!' and 'OMGLOL' but I'm PROUD! Embrace the madness with us! LOL

My final point count is: 687 points made for Fine and Noble House of Hufflepuff. *\o/*

My crazy table of crazy is here: )

I am sad it's over, too. I read really awesome fics, new pairings, new fests, and it was super fun, but I can't wait to know how the rest did. :D

A lot has been said about commenting, specially that people are doing it less these days, which makes me sad because it's not only fun, but I think it's important, too; to let someone know, who took time and effort to share something with the fandom, that you enjoyed their work.

Sometimes commenting doesn't come easily, but it doesn't have to be complicated either. So I wrote a list, a sort of step-by-step guide I go through when I do it.

I wrote this for fun. I admit, I don't religiously follow each and every one of these steps, but on the whole, this is how I basically go about writing a comment.

Like I said, all for fun. The lovely [livejournal.com profile] eidheann_writes corrected my mistakes (and seriously, isn't she the loveliest thing on the planet?), but lets not blame her for the content. That's all my fault.

So I present you:

8 ½ Fail-Safe Ways To Write A Comment (or my step by step guide to successful commenting)

I know, I'm not re-inventing the wheel here, and some of these are pretty obvious, but I thought I'd share them anyway. :)
