This was the last thing I ever wrote on my LJ:

 

Eleven years ago today, I started this LJ. Today, I'm ending it. You guys all know why. You can still find me on AO3, FF.Net, Tumblr and now on DreamWith too. I hope to see you on at least one of those platforms.

I'm going to leave this LJ up for a few months or so and then I'm going to delete and purge. So, update your bookmarks accordingly.

Goodbye, my LJ. Thank you so much for all the fond memories. You were a happy place to call home.

What's your dreamwidth account name? I cannot find you and this makes me sad. =(

This is me: http://dhw.dreamwidth.org/

Also, I promise I will get around to reading your newest Buffy fics on AO3 soon (because currently I am a terrible friend). I did my usual trick of signing up for too many fun fest things and ended up with no time for anything other than fest writing. I am so lame. *headdesk*

He's one of my least favorite characters in canon.

*shocked face*

I'm not sure we can be friends anymore...

=P

But, more seriously, I kinda know what you mean. I love canon Snape as a character - he's a dick and I really like that. But when it comes to fanon Snape, I'm quite particular. I like it when he retains his dickishness, rather than simply becoming this misunderstood, byronic-hero character. Or AU fics when the war is long over and everyone is grown up (both physically and emotionally), since he is kind of emotionally stunted...

Eh, different strokes and all that. =)

Drat!

Oh well, if we have to be friends...

=p

That's fair. I mean, I'm less fond of the whole Snape/Lily storyline, as I think its a bit weird to pine after someone like that (who you didn't even date!) for almost 20 years - and hate their son because of it.

But I do love a good old git. Especially a tall, dark and broody one. Hehe.

I do love McGonigall, though. I read an utterly excellent McGonigal/Grubblyplank (I love me a good rare-pair) recently. It was the most beautiful thing I think I've ever read. So perfect and heartbreaking and lovely all at the same time.

Found it! It's called Wilhelmina, A Love Story by lash_larue. And it is AMAZING!

I'd never thought of Minerva/Hagrid. I'm not entirely sure I'm all that up for Hagrid fic. lol. Might give it a try, though. You never know, could change my mind!

And yup. Not romantic at all. Just a bit creepy and pathetic. *sigh*

I mean, nothing wrong with unrequited love, but holding onto it for 20odd years and havig it dramatically influence every action you take, without there actually being anything really there in the first place, is a bit much.

It's so good, isn't it?

I just love everything about it. It's so understated and beautiful and fluffy (without being sickly overkill). And I could completely kind of buy this being canon, which is something I really enjoy in non-canon fic.

I really ought to take a look at her other fic. =)

Also, I should have time to read it soon! And then I will stop being the epitome of lameness! =D

I've been working on something for [personal profile] angelus2hot in my spare time over the last few months. I promised a Giles/Buffy fic as part of the fandom snowflake challenge. Only the idea has kinda grown into a full blown novella thingy.

Oooops!

I hope they don't think I've forgotten. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of 2017, then that way I don't end up breaking the rules of the fandom snowflake challenge thing. =S

It's mostly because it's draining all my time away from my other projects. =S
