First things first: Middle Sister, like the rest, got her A-Level results on yesterday. (For non-Brits: A-Levels are what you take after GCSEs if you so choose. After A Levels (sixteen-to-eighteen) comes university, if you want and you can.) She did fantastically well: two A*s and a B. She was, astonishingly, pretty depressed. Poor love got the B for Art, which is her favourite subject, having been told she’d get a A by her teacher. This same teacher lost her coursework so we hate him.

But on the whole: HUZZAH! She’s off to study art history at Leeds in September. Lucky girl. I’m having epic and continuing angst about what to do after I leave uni and everyone I know is heartily sick of hearing about it. :)

On to promo: my fic Tangible Benefits got through the first round at Smutastic!! I am SHOCKED but pleased. If you so choose, the link to vote is here -- voting is done via screened comments. (Best femmeslash!! *squees to herself*)

I’ve not been able to write at all this week due to horrible icky RL. *pouts at it* Now I am throwing myself JOYFULLY into the writing of stuff and it’s awesome. Oh text, never leave me again!

RL and the Draco Awards

I’m off to Norwich Pride this weekend! I’m really looking forward to it. The march will be short, sadly – it’s had to be cut because we need a police presence due to rather unpleasant letters from Christian protestors, and there are only so many bobbies free on a Saturday to keep an eye on us! But there’s gonna be a picnic, and lectures, and PARTYING ALL NIGHT in the evening. :DDDD I’m especially looking forward to it because even though quite a few of my friends won’t be able to make it, some will. I haven’t seen most of them in a month and I miss them all madly. I’m going to have to try hard at the picnic to actually talk to everybody and be welcoming and social, instead of sitting with my very bestest friends having a cuddle.

The TV has been cutting out a lot, apparently – I don’t watch it much – and the parentals decided to replace it. This all made sense to me. Only they’ve replaced it with a FUCKING MASSIVE flatscreen. I am completely weirded out by this rather uncharacteristic decision, and when I went to check it out I just sort of looked at the screen and thought it was weird seeing such big faces.

I’m sure I’ll get used to it, it’s just odd. Previous to this we had a rather elderly telly with a screen about a third bigger than my laptop’s screen. And frankly, I tend to judge people with enormous flatscreens for their conspicuous consumption. :S Less so these days, because more people have them, but still.

Back to the happiness: [livejournal.com profile] dracoawards has opened voting on its Harry/Draco nominations! cut for babble about the Draco Awards and my nominations!! )

Seconding opened at the Smutastic Awards last Thursday. The mods there are running a little competition to get seconding going: basically seconding, pimping, and especially pimping with banners gets you points. If you get the most points, you can either write a drabble and have it posted at the comm so the world will see how awesome you are, or prompt a mod and get awesome hotness written for you. Everybody wins! Except the people who lose.

Only the top five stories from each category make it to the final voting round, so please go and second stories! You can second as many stories as you like from each category. So if you are a Hufflepuff – or just impressed with the awesomeness of the fic – GO CRAZY! Second stuff! Including, preferably:

Walk All Over You in the Best Oneshot category.

Worthy in the Best PWP category.

Tangible Benefits in the Best Femmeslash category.

You’ll make me so happy. :)

Of course, I am already a happy bunny! Because on Monday I saw lots of lovely fandom people and [personal profile] lizardspots drew a nekkid Neal Caffrey in my notebook before the page was stolen by a DASTARDLY PIRATE. Luckily the Dastardly Pirate also brought amazing and enormous cupcakes and bought a round of drinks. We love her.

And we saw Potted Panto, which was done by the Potted Potter guys and therefore hilarious. The look on Dan’s face when he saw us all sitting in a row... ahahaha. WE WILL FOLLOW YOU TO THE ENDS OF THE POTTED EARTH!

And then today I hung out and had a massive lunch with the hilarious [profile] lilith1631. *smiles at the world* Tomorrow I go out in search of a job. Again. Wish me luck!

So, yesterday I imported almost everything to Dreamwidth. And now old entries and comments and everything are safe! Huzzah! On the downside, because I don’t actually like mirror-posting as such, I have doubled entries for as long as I’ve been using Dreamwidth. *sighs* A lot of deleting and changing the links in fic comms is in my future. But damnit broken links are the Scourge of the Internet (aside from cat macros) and I will do everything in my power to fight them!

Incidentally, I’m a mod at [livejournal.com profile] rondracodrabble now. I don’t think I ever mentioned that.

And I am doing my duty to the ship by nomming at the Draco Awards. Seriously, Ron/Draco flisters, please go nominate stuff here. Because I am totally going back later to nom more stuff, probably involving a lot of fic by personal friends. You should FIGHT ME.

And speaking of awards... I got nominated at the Smutastic Awards. Not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES! I wasn’t even expecting once! You guys! Hurray! Forever! *does a dance*


Walk All Over You was nominated for Best Oneshot.
Worthy was nominated for Best PWP.
Tangible Benefits was nominated for Best Femmeslash.

I shall link to the Seconding Post when it goes up. :) YAY!

I am very stressed just now – WHY SO MANY IMPORTANT THINGS AT ONCE, UNIVERSE? – and I have to go out again tonight. Which will be very fun, I’m sure, and it’s a friend’s birthday. I just yearn for space to get stuff done. Also, the stress is giving me a bit of writer’s block.

And yet, this morning I am very happy. Why? Well, [personal profile] woldy gave me balloons! Just because! And [personal profile] bewarethesmirk and [personal profile] girlofavalon made Happy Birthday posts for me! And also, this week I won at [profile] sortinghatdrabs! HUZZAH!

Hey you lot, guess what?

My fic Tangible Benefits has been nominated in the Stroke My Crookshanks category – Best Femmeslash. This was my first proper femmeslash, having written a couple of drabbles previously. I’m pleased as punch to be up there with some seriously excellent writers, including [personal profile] woldy and [personal profile] snowpuppies, both of whom are personal favourites. I’m going to be using the nominations as a rec list, too.

It’s great to see so many of my flist on the nominations list, proving once again what a talented bunch you are. (Although whoever nominated [personal profile] woldy before I could get there, I am petulantly annoyed by it. And, of course, pleased too.) I went a little crazy nomming fics and icons a couple of days before the deadline, and I’m crossing my fingers that one of my nominations and/or one of my flist wins a category. It’d be entirely deserved.

I like shortening ‘nominationed’ to ‘nommed’. Mmm, delicious Christmas Fairy and Slayers dancing. Nom nom nom.

Yay! Look, I came second in this week’s [profile] sortinghatdrabs!

Banner under the cut )

I actually wrote a different entry for this week’s competition, in which Harry quite seriously had ‘furies and sorrows’ in his heart. And then I scrapped it, because my attempt at actual emotion wasn’t working, and went for the snark.

Oh damnit. I was just about to say 'voting is open for a few more hours, go make sure the only H/D oneshot (okay, it's mine, I'm a little biased) nominated wins!' Only I got the timing wrong cos it just ended.

Least there's only a week til we hear about what happens!

ETA: Apparently losing all willpower and signing up for a fest (the only one I'll be doing!) fixes such annoyances. I'm doing the thing where I give comments with really long, chatty replies. This is a thing I do when happy.

Isn't that a pretty thing?

I got nominated for Best Short, and Best Fluff/Comedy, for my drabble Playing With Personas. So happy! Dear whoever nominated me (and I have an idea), I am most grateful.

Nominations are still open, if you're interested! A quick look around LJ shows that if you base a fandom on something that was only seen on the internet, you get experienced writers of awesome. And darkfic.
