Yep. My journal is Friends Only, which, I know, kind of defeats the purpose of an on line journal. But hey, look what a pretty banner I've got. And did you notice they've switched their shorts? I wonder how that happened... what do you think?

Okay, not Friends Only. ^^ All fandom content is pretty much unlocked, general whining and personal stuff that is locked. But if you want to be added, just leave a comment. :)

I've been wanting to do one of these since [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore and [livejournal.com profile] firethesound made theirs. And then [livejournal.com profile] gracerene did the Snowflake challenge and challenged people to make them; I went ahead and made mine, too. I blame them.

Likes, dislikes and everything in between. I warn you, I went MAD. Seriously. I'm ridiculous. ^^

My list )


So. *scuffs feet* How are you today, you dear and tormented livejournal friend? Did someone make a post filled with endless babbling and contradictions? I'm sorry! <3

HPFests2017



2017 Harry Potter Fests – Posting Dates and Masterlists (now with DW links!) )

If you see a mistake or an omission, please let me know! If I missed a fest that is running this year, also let me know, and if you know a link to a DW community that I don't have here, again, please do let me know. :)

More dates will be added as Fests make announcements. Please bear in mind that many of the DW communities are only back ups and/or not active; the fests themselves will actually post at livejournal! Just keep your eyes open so you won't miss anything. :)

For only Harry/Draco Fests check [profile] vaysh's H/D Fests in 2017. And for more news on fests and prompt communities [profile] potterfests is the place to go. :)

I hope this is useful! ♥

(This entry probably makes a bit more sense at livejournal ^^)

*mutters* And they say fandom is ~dying~ I spent all my afternoon yesterday coding. . . ;)

Hi!!!!!! Finally! Back from my vacations at last. A bit latter than I originally intended; the airport in Panama didn't have power for over six hours when I was supposed to come back and a lot of flights got delayed and/or cancelled including mine. I had never truly appreciated how nice and cold airports are. Jeez it was hot!

But I survived my family vacations. No small feat this time since it actually included a hurricane. I'm so sorry if I worried you about this, I did keep in touch with LQ and Birds, and Eidheann, and best co-mods Grace & Cissa and they would have totally updated you if there was something to update. It was rather very stressful until the last day when it was really scary and then it was very busy doing all the things. Thankfully, I know we were extremely lucky in our foolishness. But! Hogwarts, and Hogsmeade, and Diagon Alley were wonderful, but it was crazy, crazy, crazy. ^^

Already running to catch up with life and work and fandom. I was supposed to have a buffer day after coming back but that wasn't possible and in fact it turns out I have to travel this Monday again for work which I was not expecting. It's holiday here, but not in the rest of my country and I totally missed that when I accepted and now, well, traveling in a couple of days and missing a day off. Boo!

I'm going to do my best to try and catch up. I'd throw a 'YAY HOME' but oh my god, I rather feel I need vacations from my vacations and I'm so not ready to be back. :O

But in better news, my nipples are on top of their form so I have that going for me. LOL

I missed you so much! ♥ ♥ ♥

Today I discovered that nipples clamps are not for me. I was hanging my laundry you see, and I made a terrible, terrible miscalculation when I put the clothespins on my shirt so I could then proceed to hang my clothes.

I am bruised and tender and not in a good way.

Moving on, I'm travelling tomorrow. I'm going to Orlando (because, omg, of course, I wanna go to Hogwarts again) and I'm staying until the 19th. Well, so far my flight hasn't been cancelled so the trip is a go and I am working under the assumption it won't be cancelled, but I guess we'll see? :/

I'll try to keep in touch either way. I'll miss you! Please be safe. <3

[livejournal.com profile] harrydracobang was announced today and I'm so friggin' excited to finally be able to talk about it! :D

YAS! Harry/Draco 2018 is a thing! :D

But I guess I should actually talk a bit about instead of going into 100% flail mod before? :D

Harry/Draco Big Bang is a community encouraging the creation of fanfics 50K+ and fabulous art. You write your story and collab with an artist that will create art for your fic and together you'll make a gorgeous final piece of fic and art. :D

You can learn more about the process here.

It's very, very early yet, because sign ups open Jan 1st. BUT! It's never too early to think about it! I bet many of you amazing writers have that one story you've been meaning to write for a long while. This is the perfect chance! Not only you'll have the opportunity to have an artist illustrating your but being part of Harry/Draco fun will be so much fun. We'll have activities (seriously, watch the community for future announcements!), chat sessions, sprints and so much more.

There will be lots of things to do for watchers, too. You can be a cheerleader, an alpha reader and help an author or an artist through the creation of their pieces, beta read and generally offer support and be part of Harry/Draco Bang 2018. :)

Please watch the community: [livejournal.com profile] harrydracobang and our Tumblr: @harrydracobang for more updates. We, as in [livejournal.com profile] gracerene, [livejournal.com profile] writcraft & myself are super excited and like, yeah! COME ON! HARRY/DRACO BANG! YAS! \o/

I'm back, alive and whole, which is a trend I love coming from vacations. :)

I had a lovely time and saw beautiful places. Man, Aruba! That's the place to live. Mark my words, I'm going to retire there.

I saw dolphins at the sea! Like, we had a little window in our cabin that I made my reading nook because I'm a nerd that spend most of her time reading \o/ and I looked out and hey, dolphins! They followed the ship just a few minutes but it was beyond awesome.

I missed you so, so much! How have you been? I'm going to try to catch up – I already did with some verses I'm following (see me being a nerd ^^) but it's a slow process. ^^ Tell me what you've been up to!

I cannot believe I missed prompting for [livejournal.com profile] hp_creatures and [livejournal.com profile] hd_fanart. I was so sure I had a day or two after I came back or else I'd left my prompts to be prompted by proxy as I've done in the past. :((((( But I'm excited because there are super cool prompts.

And [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised sign-ups open next Friday! Yep, that Friday 28th. ;) ;) ;) It's going to be a blast this year, and I hope to see you there. <3

You know, for someone who barely knows how to put a bit of blush and lipgloss I sure pack a big bag of makeup.

I do this to myself every single time. I'm going on a cruise, when am I even going to wear all this makeup - under the assumption in the next day and a half I even learn how to apply it, is a mystery. But I gotta take it.

I'm off! Well, first shower, then finish packing (surely I need some jumpers, right?) then dinner, then a nap, but then I'm off.

I'll miss you! <333

Finally uploaded my new layout for DW. Check it out: [personal profile] capitu. I think like it. :) I sort of had it for ages but it needed some edits here and there, plus I'm fond of my LJ layout so then I figured, I could totally use it for DW. I'm not sure I'm going to get used to it, but for now, hey. Plus, I'm having a horrible week and at least I have this going for me, new fancy layout. ^^

I've been wanting very much to make a rec post for ages. I also figured there's no better way to improve your mood than sharing some goodies, no? :) These are all sort of Teddy-centred. At least he's half the pair.

4 Next Gen Recs, two Teddy/James and two Teddy/Scorpius. )

Hope you check them out!

And don't forget to stop by [livejournal.com profile] hp_crossgenfest! Claiming is still Open over there. <3

Oh, oh! I totally forgot. Author offerings are open at [livejournal.com profile] hp_podfic_fest! This basically mean you offer your stories (as many or as few as you want) for podficcers to read during the fest. It's brilliant! Consider offering some of your gorgeous fic, people! :)

I meant to make a rec post a while back but man, kitchen drama is still a thing so I've been kind of—busy. Never mind. But hey, recs! from [info]daily_deviant and [livejournal.com profile] hp_kinkfest because obviously there's not enough kink around here. ^^

7 Recs including: Teddy/Scorpius, Sirius/Harry, Harry/Ron/Draco, Millicent/Pansy, James/Al and 2 Draco/Al )

Yeah, I'm talking to you. <3

So I had the best birthday. :D I'm going to skip the whole bit where I tell you how depressed and stressed I've been because my kitchen is still not ready. I'm going to skip right over it and tell you how I woke up on Sunday, being away for the weekend, to livejournal notifications telling me how I have the most amazing friends in the history of ever.

I'm not going to even try to pretend I'm embarrassed by the amount of hung!fic and art I got. I'm just going to revel in the fact that my flist knows me so well and roll in that love. *rolls in it*

Seriously, you guys are amazing. I wasn't expecting this. I've had a couple of hard weeks and I honestly wasn't expecting this. Waking up, logging in and see so many messages and posts and gifts it was—I almost have no words, only I have all the words and you're probably tired to hearing but I can't help myself. You guys mean so much to me. You probably think it's just a thing I say, but you have no idea how my life is so much richer and better because you're all part of it.

starf Today I realised I actually stopped smoking! \o/ This is so super! Like, today I thought how it's been weeks since my last cigarette (because I totally fell off and smoked since I first decided to quit) and for the last week or so I haven't thought of buying one more, or how much I miss that first drag of the day and things, which I know sounds disgusting to people who doesn't smoke but those who do (or did) know what I'm talking about. ^^ So yay!

starp So much claiming and prompting going!



And that's all I remember right now. What else is going on that you remember?

starb I think finally LJ is sending notifications? I got one today after, well, I don't really know how long it's been since these haven't been working. But they are back-ish?

Though speaking of LJ, my LJ app hasn't worked in several weeks, is anyone else having the same problem? The app opens and all, but when I try to look at my feed it comes empty. :/ If it's not one thing is another.

Moving on. . .

Day 9
Send feedback to two fannish people — they can be anyone you want: a writer who’s made you happy, a moderator of your favorite exchange (not us!), a fanartist you avidly follow… There are so many possibilities. Just let someone know you appreciate their work.

Day 7
In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something.
