Get the blank of this meme here: http://dragongirl1136.deviantart.com/art/Hikaru-no-Go-meme-97481843

I'm tagging Seth, Spider, Smemily, [livejournal.com profile] gossymer, [livejournal.com profile] mowglimoonshado, and [livejournal.com profile] luredbyvenus! I'd tag [livejournal.com profile] painless_j and [livejournal.com profile] amanuensis1 but [livejournal.com profile] bookshop already did...

And see my total and utter fangirlishness: under the cut! )

Tagged by Annie ([livejournal.com profile] roedhunt) to do this!

1. What was the first fic you ever wrote? (picture you drew, manip/vid you made - sub in your form of expression for all questions).

The first HP fic I wrote was around the time the second movie came out. I've never posted it in my journal, though I've decided if the [livejournal.com profile] pornish_pixies comm ever returns to LJ, I'll post it there. (It's called "Potions Lesson," and it's Snape/Harry, NC-17).

2. What's your most recent work?

I just finished posting my 3 part Drapery/Snarco fic, "Whoever Keeps Me" at [livejournal.com profile] hp_tarot.
On LJ: http://community.livejournal.com/hp_tarot/41178.html
On IJ: http://asylums.insanejournal.com/hp_tarot/41187.html

3. What do you think you're best at (genre, style, theme)?

I think I'm best at the dark angst with lots of sex, or maybe it just seems that way because it seems hard to do well for most people. (Then again, comedy is really hard, too...!) I am good at looking at things unafraid and unrepressed, which gives me a lot of freedom to write. I'm also good at defining the difference between consensual and nonconsensual in fic, and getting people who "don't like" or "don't read" BDSM fics to really enjoy mine.

4. What would you like to be better at?

Saying thank you. So when it comes to fic, I guess I wish I was better at responding to comments. I often feel like all I can say is "thank you" and it feels inadequate...!

5. Which of your works do you think best represents you as a writer/artist?

Burning Day is probably pretty representative. A mixture of plottiness and sexiness, with a dash of suffering, and the possibility for true love always there under it all, no matter how much trouble there is. That description fits a LOT of my fics.

6. What's your favourite story you've ever written (picture you've ever drawn etc)?

Ohhh, that's hard. I still have a serious soft spot for Amnesia among my H/D fics, but The Rematch, which was a Snaco fic I wrote for my very first gift exchange fest (merry smutmas!) is still way up there.

7. What's your favourite scene/chapter you've ever written?

It still has to be the "Moroccan Night of Passion" in Tempus. If you haven't read the fic yet, it's what happens right AFTER Harry and Draco go flying...

8. What's your favourite passage or line you've ever written?
Cut because this is getting long... )

OK, I did this meme over a year ago and it was only 25 songs then I think...

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly. (OK, I'm not actually striking them thru, but am filling them in and adding Youtube links to the videos...)
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game, post your own!

This was tough since almost all the music I have in iTunes is instrumental! I had to download more sings to keep from repeating the same artists over and over...

Won't you please let me go, These words lie inside they hurt me so
Could you, could you come back?
Walking through the alleys, working through your vanities
Say this is it, don't say maybe
Everyday I go out, it’s a little bit colder
You can't depend on your family, you can't depend on your friends

7. Coldplay, "Yellow"
Look at the stars, look how they shine for you

What will grow quick, that you can't make straight
You've been away for such a long long time
Games we don't want to play
Biting keeps your words at bay
Kamiwo tatemiyou, tsuyawo dashitemiyou

13. Franz Ferdinand "Take Me Out"
So if you're lonely

I give you my affection and I give you my time

15. Al Stewart "Year of the Cat"
On a morning from a Bogart movie

16. Peter Gabriel "Come Talk to Me"
The wretched desert takes its form, the jackal proud and tight

Lay me down the long white line

18. Talking Heads, Road to Nowhere
Well we know where we going

19. INXS "What You Need"
Hey, here is the story

Ima kimi wa dokokara yume wo mitsukerutame
Waiting for the last train

22. Andreas Johnson "Glorious"
Here she comes with the master plan

This old man I've talked about
Fire burning in a hill, the lines are rocky rough

25. Duran Druan, "Girls on Film"
See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight

26. U2, "With or Without You"
See the stone set in your eyes

27. Madonna: Ray of Light
Zephyr in the sky at night

28. Massive Attack, Teardrop
Love, love is a verb

I left my job, my boss, my car, and my home
Oh deary me

So I just did the "blog rating" thing at Mingle and this journal got rated.... PG? I'm guessing it doesn't look under the cuts! And I only got the PG rating because, it says, of 4 mentions of the word "death"!

OK, everyone's doing it:

RULES: Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names.

OK, I've been tagged by [livejournal.com profile] anthimaeria so here goes. (Hey wait, didn't somebody tag me with a meme like 2-3 weeks ago? Um, remind me?)

ten things )

And I tag... hmm. I've been so ridiculously busy, I haven't been reading my flist and I don't know who has been hit with this already. So how about we make this a self-tagging zone?

Sorry no new fic tonight all. I decided to socialize in RL and leave my keyboard for a while, went to a party with a bunch of MIT alums and friends who have a longstanding Every Friday the 13th soiree. Had a grand time, tasted a very nice 14-year Oban (scotch), and got into a very long involved conversation with a gay acquaintance about... fanfic! (You can take the girl away from LJ, but you can't take the... whatever.) He reads HP (Sirius/Lupin) and also Buffyverse, though he admitted, amazingly, he prefers the het stuff in Buffy! Wow.

Meanwhile, I've been told that it is Beta Appreciation Day, and so if I haven't said it before, big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] miraba who reads almost everything and nitpicks with the best of them, [livejournal.com profile] kyuuketsukirui who really takes some of my trainwreck grammar sentences and makes them painlessly smooth, [livejournal.com profile] strickens_girl who really gave me moral support and the will to keep going when 'Draco's Folly' was at its darkest, [livejournal.com profile] jordangrant for Snape-checking and always great advice on plot issues, [livejournal.com profile] sorchar for helping to weave the tangled threads of Malfoycest, your drooling enthusiasm really does mean a lot to me!

Finally, I gacked this meme from [livejournal.com profile] dragonkal in which the answers to the questions are all exactly two words:

I went trick or treating on LiveJournal... )

What is funny is that the one "trick" I got, from [livejournal.com profile] strickens_girl, is a clothespin. Kinky!
