Azkatraz@home

[info]azkatrazathome was a blast, even though I barely participated. (It still occupied most of my attention during the weekend. I blame myself for having a week will.) I didn't expect to respond to any of the drabble challenges (short is not exactly my preferred state of mind) but, well, I did. So now I'm reposting them here.

Fair warning: some of these are not drabbles but er, scribbles (won't call them drawbles because in my mind, that word requires some kind of artistic vein, which I lack – even worse, they were made with my mouse so, yanno, don't expect much) And after this entirely-unnecessarily long preface, here is a repost:

*ah, right. All of them are un-beta-ed, so if anyone finds an error, tell me, please!

18. Hagrid's recent friendship with Aberforth Dumbledore worried more than just the local goat population. [drabble] )
19. Draco loves all things sparkly. [scribble] )
25. Was Engorgio really an appropriate charm to use mid-duel? [scribble] )
31. Due to unfortunate misfiring by Professor Sprout, an entire class of sixth years are now five year old children. Good thing we have Professor Snape handy to be a de facto parental figure. [drabble] )
35. I heard Lucius Malfoy wears a hairpiece made out of unicorn tails. [scribble] )
36. I say, I say, I say. Why has Voldemort got no nose? [scribble] )

Also, I've been re-watching Star Trek TOS. Can you tell I've been getting rather weird ideas? )

ETA: sorry, forgot to say: all the pictures are worksafe.

For those who don't know, there's a crackfest going on at [info]hp_crackdealers.

This fic definitely deserves more comments, so go and read!

The Chosen One by [info]mr_mercutio
Characters: Voldemort
Rating: PG at worst
Words: ~1900
Warnings: crack (obviously), "original" characters, a few groan-worthy jokes
Prompt: "He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy!" -- Monty Python's Life of Brian


Excerpt:

He is taken aback a little at the sight of her fuzzy bunny slippers, but he has memorized this speech and he's not going to let it go to waste. Days upon days spent with Bellatrix coaching him on his lines were not going to be thrown aside just because the Potter woman had horrible fashion sense. "Tremble, oh Mudblood, for I have come at last, despite all your attempts to hide from me –"

"You're not from the collections agency are you?" the woman interrupts, shaking the curling iron at him. "I told your manager that I sent the check in two weeks ago, and that if you people hadn't gotten it yet you ought to be taking it up with the Royal Mail, not me!"

did you miss me?

meme pilfered from [info]fourth_rose: Ten tell-tale signs that a fic you're reading is NOT by meeeeee )

In other news, I got invited to [info]serpentinelion. I know what you're thinking but I asked and apparently it wasn't a mistake, so, yay! … Only, Grant Prix is nowhere near ready for reposting yet.

Hova tűnt Damon Hill?

huh Am I late to the party?

So, [info]hd_holidays Masterlist is up.

I wrote this --> Grand Prix

I'll post it on my LJ when I can muster up the patience needed to write up all my notes/references/resources.

ETA: The thing that baffled me most was: everyone seemed to think it was AU -- when it was actually EWE. huh </ETA>

Cool thing is: the number of reivews I got was the exact same number as many years I've lived: 100000!!!

...

No, I didn't go nutty. It's in binary. :P

I think I had the plot when I first saw the video of this song.

Thank you for everyone who commented or recced. ^___^

2009 - and the first day I have to go to work. *sniffle*

Really no one can guess which [info]hd_holidays fic was mine?

Jan. 1st, 2009

First post of the year - let's do something useful with it

First: I hope everyone's holidays went well and everyone has had a nice hangover this morning. *G*

Contrary to everyone else who did a "what did I write/draw in 2008" post, I decided to instead refresh my fic list post after the reveal of hd_hols. (The last time I did was about a year ago... ummmmmm).

So now that [info]hd_holidays is over, want to guess which fic was mine? I wasn't very subtle about it - or rather, there might have been circumstances and questions that might have tipped off some people... Answers will be screened, of course.

If someone needs a quick recap, there's been an Anonymous Master List posted at hd_hols - and also a guessing poll - but just humour me, please, and tell me if you think you know which fic was mine, mmmmkay?

Finally, a bit of last-minute recs - really, just my absolute favourites. I've mostly read all the fics and seen most of the arts posted at hd_hols. I still owe comments to some of them. I didn't even make a dent on other holiday postings. Does anyone have / have knowledge of a master list of H/D fics posted on other fests this year?

This is a list of my very favourite fics )

...and favourite arts )

Yay! Got my hd_hols pressy! This is the first time I got art (okay, I may have asked for fic every previous year).

It's a funny comic, go and read it:

Fashion Fail by Anonymous [WORKSAFE]

I'm not going to tell you anything else about it so as not to spoil the surprise. (Although, I have to say that when I woke up this morning and saw the rec on my f-list, I just knew that it was my present even before clicking on the link. :D)

Wizard Atlas for DummiesMuggles

heeee!

So I was trying to find a wizarding map of London (where Diagon Alley and the Ministry are marked) and I remembered that the lexicon had some of those, although only the wizarding part. So I thought, why not try google? Ha! Turns out someone did mark those things.

Try this:

1) Go to: http://maps.google.com/
2) Type "ministry of magic london"
3) See the result. (I replaced the "hu" language setting variable in the link with "en". If the link doesn't work just start from scratch. )

Official Change of Policy at [info]hd_complete

Official Change of Policy at [info]hd_complete

So this has been a long time coming. I should have posted something about this back in May, but then I got caught up in writing and reading fest fics again, and forgotten about it. Fact is that there have only been the occasional recs on this comm for months now, so I thought I need to do something because I don't want this comm to die.

Originally, I intended this comm to become not a reccing community, but a comm where authors could post links when they finish a WIP – and then something along the way got misunderstood and that's what it turned into.

Earlier, I've considered giving away this comm into the hands of real reccers. I'm not one. I get distracted too easily, as evidenced, and reccing wasn't high on my list of priorities to begin with. Also, with all these fests, I grew lazy and it just doesn't fit in my time to check all the fic communities and comb through archives for recently completed WIPs. Sorry about that, but that's how it is. But I think it would be better if we just skipped that middle step and authors would post links to their completed fics here, the same way they do at other communities like [info]harrydraco or [info]harrylovesdraco, and I could continue for a long while. This doesn't mean that reccing is forbidden from now on – especially reccing fics that are posted outside of LJ – recs are just no longer the main focus of the comm – as they weren't meant to be in the first place.

First off: I would like you to please suggest me a more appropriate title for the community with which I could replace the current one – to reflect this. (Words like "self-rec" and "self-pimp" make everyone horribly self-conscious and shy to post their own fics for some reason.)

Second: Post about your completed fics! I haven't even begun to post my fest-related recs, so if you've recently written a fest fic or completed a WIP which fulfils the length requirement (≥10 000 words) or has more than 3 parts, then please post a rec er…notice? help out the linguistically challenged a little, please! on the comm using the template provided in the user info. These are the only rules, and that one post should only contain one fic/series so it can be sorted into the fitting categories by tags. (Tags can be chosen from the tag list; creating new tags is not allowed but they can be requested from me.)

Third: I ask for everyone to please pimp this post so that authors learn about this change of policy and we'd finally get a working community with an up-to-date list of freshly completed fics for everyone's reading pleasure. :)

x-posted to my journals, [info]hd_complete and will be most likely to other places as well.
