Okay. So. [19 Aug 2007|04:17am]
[ mood | cranky ]

Because of everything going on with LJ these days, I really haven't been able to enjoy post-DH fandom. I don't feel like writing and posting here, and I don't feel like reading and commenting here either. I do feel that LJ killed my post-DH squee, and I don't want to wait around forever to see their new rules and how everything will eventually go down. Hence, I WILL be more-or-less leaving LJ in the near future.

However, I'm not going to be transferring my journal over somewhere. I plan on starting fresh over at IJ, complete with a new username and other such things. This means different things for different people on my flist. I won't be posting my new username up here publicly or privately for a couple of months. I will be notifying a few people on my flist of the change as soon as it's made, but most of you won't be told. Please understand that this is nothing personal against any of you. In a few months, I will find everyone again and friend them on the new journal if they're on IJ, making it clear that I AM the person you have had friended over here at twilight_nyx. I won't friend anyone who has me friended currently until they are notified of the new username, because I don't want to deceive anyone.

That said, for those of you who would still like to keep in touch, I do use AIM frequently, and as listed in my user info, my SN over there is "parselt0ngu3." Comments on this entry are screened, so you can also contact me through here if you need to - I'm still going to be reading my flist and checking back here for a while.

Dear Deathly Hallows,

I love you, dear - you know that. But you've given my brain way too many plotbunnies, and my head's getting a bit overcrowded with all of them jumping around. I am OVERWHELMED. And slightly terrified.

<3 Ren

In other words - I need to start writing. SOMETHING. ANYTHING. Argh. >.

I finished Deathly Hallows! <3 [22 Jul 2007|10:22pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Oh. My. God. Yes, I've finished reading Deathly Hallows, and I am desperately trying to figure out how to sort out and post all my thoughts about it - because my brain is totally going NUTS right now.

I think I'm going to end up doing two posts, one of my reactions and the other on what I predicted correctly or incorrectly, for my own records. And then I totally need to join a DH community and post a list of questions that I have from things that I THINK are unsolved, but that I might've just missed.

... You know, I should probably also set my LJ controls back to English instead of Russian; it's getting confusing.

Ignore the fact that I haven't posted anything in ages - just go join fandom_counts if you haven't already.

If you live under a rock/haven't been on LJ and have no idea what's going on, the links below (which are here for my own records) might give you some idea.

1. this post by liz_marcs, found via this post by summerborn (about the issue, responses between bogus organization, LJ, etc.)
2. http://fandomtossed.greatestjournal.com/ (all news about this crap)
3. this post by luthien82 (opinion + other resource links)

ALSO - though I don't think I had anything listed in my interests that was dubious, all mine have been deleted for now and replaced with "freedom of speech," (idea from luthien82's Interests)because I HATE censorship like this, and I am INCREDIBLY fucking pissed off that certain fandom communities/people were shut down when they were in no way in the wrong. While I can fully comprehend and support shutting down communities and people that clearly promote, condone, or organize illegal and unlawful activity, the majority of this just seems to be utter bullshit.

Okay, so of course it sounds pathetic, but that's the day I've been waiting for almost half my life. *flail*

[ mood | thankful ]

Must, must, must stop procrastinating and get inspired for fic writing. I haven't done much in SO long, and I really want to be able to. Unfortunately, I'm totally uninspired.

I know this is very late, but a very big THANK YOUUU!! goes out to whomever anonymously sent me that virtual box of chocolate. I did see it, and it definitely made my day. <3 I'm sorry it took so long to thank you, whoever you are. Also, more GINORMOUS THANKS (again, late x.x) to luthien82 for being an insanely lovely person and sending me an absurdly large box of chocolate, which still has not managed to become completely demolished. xD ... Phew. I HATE being late on saying thank you, because I really do appreciate the things people do for me, and I feel absolutely terrible when they don't know that.

In other news - I was involved in a minor car accident tonight, because people really need to learn how to drive. >.< My father was driving and my sister and I were with him, and some woman stopped in front of us for no apparent reason. She had an entire lane to herself, but the traffic behind us was heavy so there wasn't any moving room between the cars (the joys of living in suburban New York), and for some reason she starts moving and then slams on her breaks. She just... stopped. Everyone's okay and the damage to both cars was minor because we hadn't gotten a chance to pick up speed, but damn, that was scary. My father's an exceptional driver - he's never had an accident that was legally or actually his fault, and there was a split second before we collided that I realised he wasn't stopping. I think that's when I started hyperventilating. ^^'I was really shaky afterwards, just because I'm one of those people that analyse things to death, and we were so lucky that the car behind us had enough stopping room - one of the dog crates was in the back of my father's car, and if we'd have gotten hit from behind it would've probably knocked my sister out. Scarrrry.

Blah. [02 Jan 2007|09:02pm]
[ mood | crappy ]

So, I don't believe in New Year's resolutions (if you want to do something, then just do it!), but I'd really like to get more involved with fandom this year. I tend to be an absolutely horrible lurker (I'm terribly shy), and I really don't like that. Not to mention, I want my writing to improve.

... Er, and I'm also rather sick of a bunch of unfinished fics taking up space on my hard drive. I was attempting to clean out some of my documents on my other computer, and there's still fic on there from about three years ago. x.x' Oops.

But so far, I've only got to finish three more Harry/Remus pieces for 7spells and take care of three different random plot-bunnies that've all taken over my brain in the past fews weeks. (Ginny/Hermione during the war, random Pansy/Neville post-war, anddddd sort of reunion themed Tom/Dan, because I realized I haven't written T/D in the past year.)

Maybe writing it all down will guilt me into finishing and posting. We'll see if it works.

x.x' Srsly. My mind has definitely been really scrambled lately. Er, and I'm with the people obsessing over the weird use of grammar in the title. o.0

On another note... Merry Christmas to those of you that celebrate and... er... Happy happy to those that don't! =)

One of my new course instructors looks exactly like the mental version of Draco Malfoy stored in my head. Exactly. Well, the 20-something version anyway. And that's quite, quite distracting. x.x'

Five Years. [11 Aug 2006|02:44pm]
[ mood | nervous ]

So, I'm beginning my first WIP. It's for the current 7spells challenge, and thus Harry/Remus. Here we go!

Title: Five Years
Rating: PG
Pairing: Harry/Remus (pre-slash)
Prompt: 4. Draw the line in the sand
Warnings: None
Word Count: 588
Summary: Harry Potter has not seen Remus Lupin in five years.
Beta-ed By: The lovely jackiejlh. =D
A/N: This piece is the first part of the Line story arc. It can ultimately be read as a stand-alone or along with the other two parts when they are posted. A very big "Thank you!" goes out to my beta, jackiejlh.

Birthday!Fic [31 Jul 2006|09:00pm]
[ mood | blah ]

As per tradition, for Harry's birthday I've written him in another pairing that I haven't ever written him in before. (Last years was a piece with the Fat Lady [do not ask] and the year before that was Colin and then Ron, if I remember correctly]. And be warned, this is unbetaed.

Title: Birthday Prank
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Harry/Fred/George, Fred/George
Warnings: Temporary girl!Harry, implied incest, unbetaed
Word Count: 495

Birthday PrankCollapse )

In other news, I have two possible 7spells entries that I need to get working on and find a beta for. One of them has been bouncing around in my head for a while now and is definitely going to be for the challenge, but the other could end up as another pairing. xD

And...! I'm making a mini Snape doll. Out of felt. Of course, I can't sew to save my life, by hand or with a sewing machine, so it's proving rather difficult, but I've got the main body pieced together and I've managed to sew him a pair of pants. ^^ Er, and felt it kind of crappy to work with too. Ah, well. Pictures in a million years when I finish him. *nod*

Introducing - the Defender! [13 Jul 2006|09:56pm]
[ mood | pleased ]

Ohhhh man - I've written my first semi-action piece for diricawl_way's Super Potters Challenge. It's probably the second longest piece I've ever written - and I'm actually really pleased with how it ended up.

It's total and complete genfic, and well... would fit under the genre of action, I suppose.

Here we go. xD

Sewers were disgusting, but with the aid of a Bubblehead Charm they were at least bearable hiding places for short periods of time. This, of course, was why Draco Malfoy was walking around in one looking like a Muggle astronaut at near two in the morning. Still, things could be worse.Collapse )

Done. *collapses* [30 Jun 2006|12:41am]
[ mood | drained ]

I finally finished it! Gyah, this piece for the Cho Chang Fic-a-Fest gave me absolute HELL, but it's done. Yayness.

Title: Taking Care
Rating: PG
Pairing: Sort-of-maybe-not-really-oh-who-knows Cho/Marietta. Implied Cho/Harry & Cho/Cedric.
For: Cho Chang Fic-a-Fest (here)
Warnings: None.
Word Count: 614
Summary: Cho just doesn't know what to do anymore. Marietta tries to help.
A/N: This is the third version of the original piece I wrote for the Fest. Just about everything changed from my original idea, including the plot, the pairing, and the ending. It's definitely more gen-like than I had initially planned. However, I think I like it this way better. =D

Taking CareCollapse )

On a totally unrelated note, I'm getting a new puppy! Pictures to come when we get him. =]

Father's Day Fic? Apparently. [18 Jun 2006|07:47pm]
[ mood | amused ]

All right, so I have four or so challenge fics due, I think... but this plot bunny was too good to pass up. And it's total genfic. Surprise?

Title: Father's Day, 1981
Rating: PG
Warnings: Baby vomit.
Word Count: 418
Summary: James angsts over his Father's Day gift. Sirius is greatly amused.

Father's Day, 1981Collapse )
