I'm so excited, I could just squee. For hours on end.

I sent Chapter the Last out to be looked over today. I don't care if it's angsty and overly emotional and just plain BAD. I'm happy with it.

And I am NEVER posting a WIP again.

And it's in the queue at Ashwinder.

Fifty points to the House of the first person who finds a Sesame Street joke in the chapter and mentions it in their review!

Just wanted to keep you all posted: I've had my chapter back from the betas for over a week, but some of their suggestions are quite complex and require some rewriting. Their suggestions are excellent, and the chapter is going to be that much better as a result, so thank you all for your patience.

It helps that this week is spring break at college. No school! Boo is off school this week too, so I'm taking her to Disneyland (probably Thursday). I may also take Friday off from work, so I can work on my Exchange gift and then go to my astronomy club meeting in the evening. Mom's going to be at Aunt Millie's, so it'll be quiet.

Speaking of Boo, she's gotten into a bit of trouble recently. Jimbo and SIL, though they haven't read the Harry Potter books, forbade Boo to read them. I've been advising them to let her since she turned nine, a year and a half ago, but they're her parents. However, it was recently discovered that she sneaked them all out of her school library and read them. When this was found out, Jimbo and SIL had her borrowing privileges revoked. Boo then sneaked a non-Potter book out of the library anyway, without checking it out.

No, I am of two minds on this. I don't approve of deception or disobedience, and came terribly close to canceling Disneyland because of it. However ... how can I not approve of any child whose sole instance of deception or disobedience came as a result of wanting to read?!

Yes, it's been a year.

Yes, I've been slacking, despite some heavy RL troubles.

But I'm sending the next chapter of "She Was Beautiful to Him" to the Britpicker today (as soon as I get a response), and then I'll send it to the betas after that. I'm using the phrase "two weeks' notice" as kind of a heads-up: I expect to post it at OWL (and submit it to SH) within two weeks. So for those of you who are still interested in and loyal to this fic (I'm kissing the hems of your garments in gratitude), if you need to re-read it to remember "What was that story about?" now's the time to do it.

(Chapter seventeen -- CHAPTER THE LAST -- is already mostly written. Despite binning all of sixteen and re-starting it from scratch about three weeks ago, the end result is the same. I'll only have to change a few details in seventeen, and it'll be ready for the betas. So I'll post that chapter no later than Easter.)

keladry_lupin: (Must ... Write)
[ profile] blackaces924 did this: If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post exactly one sentence (or more) from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favourite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

Here goes! )

I've decided to have a little fun. The Death Eaters in the [ profile] grangersnape100 group are making a push to win this week's competition, so I'm trying to pull a rabbit out of my hat. For every chapter of She Was Beautiful to Him, a full-length -- albeit incomplete -- alternate-universe story that is totally from Severus Snape's point of view, I am writing one drabble from Hermione Granger's point of view.

Look under the cut for the first four drabbles and links: )

I'm going to ration them out, to help out the Order when we're behind the dreaded Death Eaters. I was going to have them all up by Saturday night, but we're significantly ahead at the moment, so I'm gonna hold the others back, for the moment.
