So I've gone for a bingo card on GYWO. I'm putting it here more so I can find it easily, but any words of encouragement or advice or oneshot prompts you love and I'd like to hear them. I chose the Character Traits option and -- unless a massive thunderbolt comes down and dramatically changes my current path of fate -- these will all be ff.

Okay to wrap up the festive season, which has only just ended for me -- Uni's only just gone back and I finally have to do work again -- I wanted to review and rec some of my favourite gifts from this holiday's H/D Owl Post. (I haven't included gifts made for me)

Here's a link to the masterlist if anyone wants it too. Please see below cut for the rest.

So, I'm going to try and be more active this year! And to start that off, here's a claiming post and also notes/thanks for all my the gifts that were created for me :D

First, though, a special thanks to the lovely mods that had to deal with my troublemaking this year. [livejournal.com profile] kitty_fic & [livejournal.com profile] vaysh you're both amazing and you've done such an amazing job. What would we do without you? (There isn't a 3rd mod right? I haven't missed anyone?)

Hello friends!

I'm in need of help.

I'm writing my first x-men fic and I need help breaking into the fandom on lj. Can anyone tell me active lj comms? Is there a beta request comm out there?

Relationship specific Cherik, and movie/tv not comic if it applies, but mainly just x-men in general.

Let me know if you're a fellow fandomer over there too :D Would be nice to already know some friendly faces.

Any of my merlin related friends, I'm now in the merlin writers/after Camlann chatroom.  Hoping to get some stuff done and catch up with anyone who's around.  Feel free to pop on by!

All my darling friends in other contries!  I seek intel!

I'm looking for Citrus Polos!!

Now on the wiki page, it specifically says they've been discontinued in the UK.  Does that mean they still exist in other parts of the world?

Any news?  Consider this an urgent mission!

Good day to all my lovely LJ friends!

Hope you're all well - sorry I've been rather absent lately.

I'd like to ask for some opinions.  I'm a pianist - which some of you may already know - and at the moment I'm stumped for new stuff I'd like to learn.  I don't really like playing the traditional classical stuff, I'm more of a modern melody girl.  At the moment I'm going through an Einaudi phase still but the problem is I'm finding his stuff really easy to learn.  So although I enjoy playing it, it isn't as much of a challenge as I'd like.

Does anyone have any piano pieces they love they'd like to share?  Don't worry about diffuculty, I'm game for anything.  If I like a piece enough I can get pretty dogged about not letting it beat me :p.

So anyone?  Got a piano piece - or a song you've heard on youtube just by a pianist - you'd like to share?  If all goes well I wouldn't be adverse to videoing it later on for you :)

Hello my lovely friends list.
Hope you're all well.

So I know for some of you on here English isn't your first language.  And I'm hoping that some other people have learned a second language as well.

I've decided I'd really like to learn German fluently.  I'm fully aware it's a difficult thing to do on your own.  But I like the German language and I took 5 years of it in high school, so I'm hoping that - although I don't remember much of it now - it'll come back pretty quickly.

So what I'd like your help with, is where to start.  To anyone who's learned another language, what kind of materials did you use?  What did you find most helpful? Where did you find them?  Is there a certain series of e.g. books you'd recommend (even if you used them for a different language)?  Are there any places you really wouldn't recommend or are inaccurate?

Basically, would anyone mind telling me about their experiences learning a new language?

Many thanks to anyone who responds.

So this came up in the [livejournal.com profile] hd_writers chat a little while ago.  I hopped straight on over to Mab's journal and decided that, yes, I did want to end up red faced but ultimately feeling like I'd expressed something of myself to the fandom.

Meme originated by vmsteenbeans. Post snippets of fics of something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.  Additionally, if you're not a writer but still want to play, just list snippets of other people's fics (credited) that fit the descriptions! - [livejournal.com profile] mab

Title: Guardian of the Grounds
Word Count: 516
Rating: V. light M (literally hinted sex poetically)
Challenge: HD_writers Wizarding Games: Assignement #4 - Create an H/D story from the POV of neither Harry nor Draco (Min: 500 Words)
POV: The Whomping Willow - don't ask, I'm weird.
Pairing: Required Harry/Draco obviously :D
Warnings: Purple prose, omg so much, I'm so sorry!  Hinted sex um.  What tense is this?  First person plural present?  Omg, totally sorry for that too.
A/N: Does this even count?  The prompt doesn't say to include a sport and this is kind of what just happened sooo...yeah I'm going to go with this.  Felt like a marathon getting the last 100 words in so I think this counts!

The Big Blog of Bang

New FanFic Event Planner Blog

The FanFic Flaunter

Can be found HERE.

So, this is my new project: to create an updated archive of different fandom bangs, including Big Bangs, Little Bangs and Reverse Bangs so far.

And it's going rather well so far!  I've got a growing network of informants and I'm pretty happy with the format!

All that's missing?  People to use the resource!!

So come have a peak, follow and wait for your dream Bang to come along!!!!

(Extra information and/or informants are welcome!)

Well done everyone who participated.  Thank you again for all my gifts.  I hope the holiday happiness light shone brightly for everyone!

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] vaysh11 and [livejournal.com profile] kitty_fic for running this wonderful event. I've never participated in an anon gift exchange but this was a perfect experience. I love how everyone gets so into the spirit of it. I'll definitely be joining you again!

Secondly, I'd like to thank [livejournal.com profile] nenne, [livejournal.com profile] cassisluna and [livejournal.com profile] eidheann_writes for the amazing fics and art I received as my gifts. All three can be found in the comm and anyone reading this should go give them love (for easy finding just find my recipient tag). I know two of you were way out of your comfort zones trying to write what I asked for and I really loved and appreciate what you came up with.

Third, I'd like to thank [livejournal.com profile] shadowofrazia again for doing the quick betas :D Much love, darling.

And now for the owl claims.

Hello! My lovely friends!

Okay, so for my NaNoWriMo I'm going to try and write (even if it doesn't reach the word count) an Apocalypse BigBang.

I'm pretty sure my fandom will be Teen Wolf mainly because it's already a werewolf verse and the characters fit my idea.

But what is the purpose of this post, you may ask? I wanted to see if anyone I already know would be willing to cheerlead me through this monster (mini-monster) I would be eternally grateful. I'm not asking for a beta. Just a cheerleader - although if you wanted to do that too...well, it'll be more like eternal cosmic love.

It is an Apocalypse AU so you don't really need much knowledge about TW, fyi.

For artist claiming reasons, I can't publish my summary here, but if you're even the slightest bit considering it, PM me and I'll send it over for a decision.

There will be ranting, and hardcore world building, and ideas bouncing everywhere. And there will be fun times and down times. But I thought I'd ask friends first because the people who are on my friends list are people I know and like.

Hopefully I'll get some PMs.

Title: Resilience
Rating: G
Word Count: 2213
Warnings: Angst.  Lot's of angst.  Post-war.  Mentions of canon character death.  8th Year.
Written for: Back to Hogwarts at [livejournal.com profile] hd_writers.  Drabble challenge, all prompts included. (Go RAVENCLAW!)
Disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters or make any profit from this work.
Summary: A new school year is welcomed in and Hogwarts continues to march forth, resilient.
A/N:  Nothing really.  All the prompts are there and it is intended to read as one story rather than separate drabbles.  It is rather angsty and a canon divergence 8th year fic.  Everyone else wrote lovely happy things - doing great everyone by the way, all the fic coming out if amazing! - but I thought I'd stick to my strengths and I actually found this to be one of the easiest things I've written in a while, flowed nicely.  Enjoy and let me know thoughts. :D
Also, take note of the song, I actually think it fits the fic quite well and maybe that's why it turned out a way i quite like :)

Read fic: Resilience )
