Had a lovely (but long) day in London yesterday, but totally worth the hours. Penguins of Madagascar is hysterical and definitely will entertain all ages. Personally, I think John Malkovitch deserves a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in it. The kids had a smashing time, they got goodie bags for having brought their penguin toys with them, and although I think my friend Naomi and I may have laughed louder than anyone my children, they loved the film and the attention.

The Barbican is currently running children's animation workshops/drop-in sessions, and my two got to make their own animated animals and learn about the filming process. I'm told their "feature" may be available on-line at some point, so will link to it if it is. (And when I say feature, I'm talking minutes, here:)

The divine [livejournal.com profile] cleo_jay joined us at the pub, where the kids were equal parts squicked and fascinated by the game hanging up in the place. The food was good and the prosecco inexpensive, so it was win-win for everyone!

Aaaaaaand, because we were right next to the Museum of London, we stopped in to say hello to this handsome fellow.

We then met the multi-talented [livejournal.com profile] joan_waterhouse, who'd been at RADA showing them her stuff, and we all caught up with the latest fandom gossip, exchanged early Christmas presents, and talked a load of shit for the next few hours, before the kids and I had to hop on a NW-bound train.

Can't wait to meet up with all the loonies again and do this some more over the next few months.

Attention everyone: Today is [livejournal.com profile] delphipsmith's *mumbles into hand*th birthday!

I do hope you have a wonderful SS, LM & HG-filled day!

A donation will be made to the apothecary, terror organisation, library charity of your choice. (Just let me know which one.)

I love you always.

I just had the most awesomebrilliantridiculouslysqueeful weekend.

But that's only part of what's happened in the last two months, or since I've had time to actually play with you lot.

Before I start cutting this to save you all from having to read the rest of this post, let me just say a HUGE THANK you to everyone who sent me virtual kisses! I tried to send one to everyone on my flist, but my explativing explative modem doesn't seem to like my new house very much, and it bails every five minutes, so I'm actually pretty chuffed to have got as many sent as I did. I am very, very sorry if I missed you out, but please know that I wanted to snog you stupid, even if I didn't.

Right, now. Why I've been gone and where I'm going, and if you'd like to skip to the end, there's some fic for you:)

We moved )

Then husband went to hospital )

Step right up for your flu jab )

Thank god for fandom )

Now for the fic -

Last week I received a gorgeous piece of school!smut (how did she know?) from one of my favourite writers. I had actually forgotten I left a couple of prompts over at [livejournal.com profile] hd_relief, and was delighted to be presented with this:

Author: [livejournal.com profile] khasael
Title: Relax (don't do it)
Summary: It was only a matter of time before Harry's inability to remember Potions information got him in trouble... although some sorts of trouble are a lot more pleasant than others.
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,700

In addition, I was honoured to write this little ditty for [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12 for the [livejournal.com profile] harrydracompreg fest - it's silly, not squicky and I had a fantastic time coming up with the plot. Thank you to everyone who commented - I'll reply later tonight when the modem might be more co-operative. Thank you, also, to my fellow mods, [livejournal.com profile] sassy_cissa, [livejournal.com profile] kittyfic, and [livejournal.com profile] enchanted_jae!

Title: The Proof Is In the Potion
Prompt: Breaking the news to Draco's parents.
Rating: NC17
Warning(s): Mpreg, duh.
Epilogue compliant? Not even a little bit.
Word Count: ~8K
Summary: Rita Skeeter does some actual research, and damned if she isn’t shocked with what she finds: Draco in the family way, a secret from way-back-when, and Lucius has the most shocking taste in alcoholic beverages.

All for now - I'm mostly back and really missed you guys.

Hello flist! I've missed you, but I have been keeping my eye on you.

So, lots of things happening but first of all, I must say a big thank you to everyone who's picked up my birthday prompt by contributing to Operation H/D Support and [livejournal.com profile] snitches_n_smut. It's not long till the big day, and I'm basking in Quidditch-love everytime I check LJ!

In other news, Mr Nursedarry got the second job he applied for (Siemens Windpower), as well as the first (something in Salisbury, which would have been a long commute!), and has decided to accept the Siemens one. He'll start in mid-June.

But before that, we're moving off the base (bye-bye RAF!) and into Reading. We've found a great house to rent whilst we look for something to buy, and the kids start their new school after the half-term at the beginning of June.

And I'm meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] being_here and [livejournal.com profile] katerina_black next week! Wo0T!!!

Finally, I can report I've been a busy fangirl and will have three fics posting in fests in the near future. They're all pretty much my usual fare - expect the boys to pull the rip-cords on their parachutes only to find an anvil comes out.

I had to abandon Glompfest which broke my heart, and I feel awful about it, but we've ended up needing to move a month early and I wouldn't have had time to write my name (even this post has been delayed), let alone a fic.

BUT, all that does mean I might have time to write for the next installment of Operation H/D Support. What do you think? A little emo/angry next time? *ducks*

EDT: I'm an idiot and forgot to mention the lovely jellybeans given me by [livejournal.com profile] fireflavored, [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12 and [livejournal.com profile] alaana_fair. THANK YOU, LADIES!

Hugs to you all, and see you next week ;)

Hello!

I'm back from my lovely weekend away with [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black and [livejournal.com profile] accioscar. I live near London, have a HM Forces rail card, and never miss a chance to schmooze with fangirls. We went to two theatre productions - one, a Sondheim musical, and one a black comedy. I'm not a huge lover of Sondheim, but the cast were great. The play we saw later in the evening was amazing, and the acting was just in-your-face superb. I got to see Rupert Someone-from-Merlin in his pants, and got a smile and a nod from Colin Someone-from-Merlin after taking his picture with a near-hysterical Scar.

I also laughed my head off, drank a lot of lovely cocktails, and ate some yummy food! I finished up the weekend at Kings Cross, waving bye-bye to Mr Nursedarry and my kids, as they were catching the train to Scotland to spend half-term with my in-laws. (Better them than me, I say!) I'm working this week, as my boss is also away, but wow, I've got the house all to myself! RESULT!

I would like to thank EVERYONE who has left me lovely comments on the H/D meme. I'm glad my fic tickles your funny bone - I've always said that my stories may sometimes lack poignancy and poetry, but if you need a piano dropped on your head, I'm your gal! I am also so glad to have had the opportunity to meet so many of the great fen who play in my sandbox! And I look forward to organising more get-togethers in future! I really do enjoy everything I do in fandom, and I am so grateful for your nice words. ♥s to you all!


Now, for two compltetely random questions:
1. Does anyone know where [livejournal.com profile] acromantular is these days? I need to speak with her somewhat urgently. It's nothing bad, just one of those "doh!" moments we've had at [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] anthimaeria!

2. Does anyone know how to take lots of jpgs and make a slide-show that can be posted on/linked to LJ? I've seen it done before, but I've no idea about those things and am keen to learn!


Okay... how about some gooey kissy-fic!


I got a beautiful and touching - AND HOT - gift called Of Dreams and Reality by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] kamerreon. It's full of near-trust, typical boy-communication, and even a bit of forgiveness. Did I mention it was hot?

Here is my submission, written for the prompt-tastic [livejournal.com profile] baterina_1234.

Title: Suspend Your Disbelief
Rating: PG13 (Huh, what?!)
Wordcount: ~1350
Warning: Someone’s a bit tied up at the moment.
Summary: Time for a little Q & A. Fluffy kink-kissing.
Note: This was also written using a prompt given me by [livejournal.com profile] hp_positions for their Valentines Shag (see end of fic).

Auror Harry knows just how to treat a suspicious character... )

I can barely express my thanks for all of the wonderful gifts I've been given. I only need to look at my LJ to be reminded of how much sharing this fandom means to me, but I want to say thank you for even more holiday bounty.

This icon (along with the fic I recc'd previously) were fantastically-inspired gifts from [livejournal.com profile] leo_draconis, who's orchestrated so much wonderfulness this holiday *blows kisses*.

I also received wonderful nursey and Dan icons from the lovely [livejournal.com profile] bleedforyou1, a new LJ friend *hugs*.

I've (or rather, my lucky children) have had more RL cards from [livejournal.com profile] alovelycupoftea and [livejournal.com profile] softly_sweetly, who's gift of ST movies I'm still delighting in getting through. (I know, I have no taste:)

Virtually, I've also received a lovely card from [livejournal.com profile] dirty_darella (H & D looking so cute in their pyjamas!), and a family of Christmas bears and other great v-gifts from [livejournal.com profile] yumekutteikt, [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12, [livejournal.com profile] moonlitdark, [livejournal.com profile] leo_draconis, [livejournal.com profile] arineat, [livejournal.com profile] cinnetart, [livejournal.com profile] being_here, [livejournal.com profile] frayach, [livejournal.com profile] thepretender501, and [livejournal.com profile] demicus. I can only echo [livejournal.com profile] dysonrules when I say how ridiculously happy getting these makes me.

[livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12, my soul-sister, gifted me with lovely smelly things for my bath, lovely gifts for the kids, and a huge amount of time and money to visit me whilst I was feeling poorly. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your friendship.

I also got a nice phone call from Mr Nursedarry last night (who had to work, but still got a Christmas dinner). He'll be home now in less than a month. *throws confetti*

[livejournal.com profile] nicevenn organised [livejournal.com profile] hd_seasons stocking stuffers (click on the link below) which consisted of the Most. Wonderful. Gifts. Thank you so much to everyone who created the fic, art, and media. *am still amazed at the sheer quantity and quality of them* They have brought me so much joy today, it's almost criminal. Ginormous armfuls of love and chocolate go to [livejournal.com profile] sabinefrappe, [livejournal.com profile] uniquepov, [livejournal.com profile] nicevenn, [livejournal.com profile] quimvaa, [livejournal.com profile] dirty_darella, [livejournal.com profile] kjp_013, [livejournal.com profile] khasael, [livejournal.com profile] ficreader76, and [livejournal.com profile] kitty_fic. I'll be reccing these again when they're reposted on individual LJs after the 1st.



Note: there are three - yes, three - pages. Click on Next for the other pages, as they're not linked.



If I've left anything off, please do call me on it. We've had a lot of trouble with the post due to weather, so if you've sent something via snail-mail and I've not yet mentioned it, chances are it's not yet arrived *sob*

Blessed be [livejournal.com profile] hereticalvision, for she brings H/Sc in a gritty little ficlet not for the fluffy-minded: Arrivals. It's time to celebrate themselves, and boy do they plan to.
