and hop on over to [personal profile] r_grayjoy's post! WORST WORDS TO USE WHILE WRITING A SEX SCENE (with some truly hideous comment!porn from yours truly) ... come and join in the fun and help me procrastinate on my NaNo novel!

Come on, seriously. I bet you can top "pustulent" ... can't you?

Whoops ... between helping my post-doc, talking to my boss, and doing my own experiments, I totally skipped lunch. Bad for my body and my metabolism, I know. :/ Totally not the way I want to be dieting, either. I will do better tomorrow, if only because I *have* to eat lunch at lab meeting, lol!

Also, I realized this morning in a visceral way - i.e., when my head started aching - that I am totally addicted to caffeine. It didn't come as a revelation to any of my coworkers, though. Hmm... perhaps that is a sign, too. I don't know - if recognizing that you have a problem is the first step to fixing it, I might want to take back that realization. I'm quite happy with my caffeine addiction, really. Coffee is fun. :D

I totally forgot to pimp the [insanejournal.com profile] fall_fantasia masterlist yesterday, but here it is! [insanejournal.com profile] celandineb wrote the very very VERY awesome Percy/Scorpius fic The Best for me, and I ended up writing for her, too ... Between Dreams and Reality, Harry/Draco/Snape. It was an awesome fest and so you should totally check out the masterlist and all the great stories there.

Anyhow. The point of all this rambling, before I got started, was to ask for a beta for my September [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant fic. It's been through a couple betas already, but I think it needs some more. It's a DH-compliant Snarry, no real warnings I guess, except for religious themes, if those need warnings. Priest!Snape ... anybody? Pretty please?

My spin is almost up so I need to get back to my bench, but ... *smooches to all* Have a good day!

Errr. I'm only sharing my latest procrastination tool with y'all because I love you, right? I wouldn't do this for just anybody. :P

(translation: don't blame me if you end up wasting all your time with this, 'kay? I disclaim any and all responsibility. I only tell you things because I <3 you.)

Word Vine, SO addictive! I was playing the "easy" level and made it up to 36000+, playing on and off all afternoon ... yeah. I think I need to give it another go, though. Because I don't have any packing or cleaning or writing to do, oh no. Not me. :P

Such fun! I went to see We Are Wizards (it was fabulous) with [insanejournal.com profile] potteresque_ire and we had lunch and dinner together as well a lovely long walk ... during which we came up with a diabolical plan for a collab. I'm so excited!

I have been really delinquent in terms of linking to [insanejournal.com profile] hd_worldcup, but you really really really must go read/appreciateall of team epilogue's fic&art. There've been a lot of amazing prompts posted: wands, strength, death, the lovers, swords, the tower, the empress, and the hierophant. All of the teams have done fabulous, fabulous things with these prompts - I know that it's an awful lot to keep up with, but it's soooo worth it!

I am actually headache-free for a change, so I reckon I'll try to hammer out (part of) another fest fic while that lasts ... *hugs flist and runs off to write*

Oh, and a lolcat, just for fun )

First, [insanejournal.com profile] angela_snape asked [insanejournal.com profile] celandineb for a teenyfic for me ... and it's amazing! Overtime (Bill/Harry/Severus, adult and really freaking hot) ... shoo! Go and read it! It's fabulous!

Second, a very happy birthday to [insanejournal.com profile] who_la_hoop for tomorrow - I want to say that now, because otherwise I might miss it! And happy birthday to anyone else that I've missed ... I'm so sorry! I'm such a flitterbrain, I somehow spaced out through the first half of February. Possibly some of January as well... I'm about caught up with my fest writing, though, so if you want to leave a one word prompt and a pairing, I'd love to write something for you. I'm still super-far-behind, so it might be a while, but ... it will happen eventually!

Third ... caffeine! It's wonderful! I love Earl Grey tea, and I want you all to know it. :)

Fourth - it's recruitment weekend, which means I probably won't be around very much, if at all! Happy weekend, darling flist!

Remember, today is the last day to submit prompts for [insanejournal.com profile] phoenix_flies! Check out the guidelines for prompts and go here to submit your prompts before midnight EST!

And speaking of prompts ... happy birthday, [insanejournal.com profile] r_grayjoy! I hope you have the best of days ... feel free to drop me a pairing and a prompt if you would like an (eventual) birthday ficlet!

On that note, sorry for having been AWOL lately, with the birthday ficlets and drabbles and replies to comments and everything. I'm going to make a good effort this week to be around more, now that my Valensmut fic is (mostly) done. I've missed you guys!

I (finally) let Firefox restart and install the new update, and now all of my bookmarks are gone. Is there any way to get them back?

*fingers crossed* Please, oh please, say yes! and tell me how to do it?

Also, if you are trying to contact me: my e-mail address has changed to Lyv.Vert@gmail.com, so please update your address books - thanks! :)

If you post only/mostly to LJ, could you please leave a comment here to let me know? Am setting up reading filters so that I don't have to see everything double-posted ... and I don't want to miss out on anyone's posts!

I've been only posting to IJ myself, lately, as far as any of my fic and drabbles are concerned. I won't have any hurt feelings at all if you choose to defriend me/filter me out over here on LJ.

Am bored at work and dealing with some icky sneezy allergy thing. My boss is in France ... not that this is exactly relevant, but it doesn't exactly make me feel better, you know!

1. Masterlist updated. Posting fic to IJ almost exclusively now, if you hadn't noticed.

2. Yay, holiday cards! Now that I'm home again, I have mail! From [insanejournal.com profile] rgrayjoy, [insanejournal.com profile] a_belladonna, [insanejournal.com profile] noorie, [insanejournal.com profile] unbroken_halo, [insanejournal.com profile] magnetic_pole ... and from Severus Snape in the [insanejournal.com profile] hp_mailbox exchange! So many lovely cards ... I adore them! Thank you so much!
and [insanejournal.com profile] lilyseyes and [insanejournal.com profile] celandineb, I've opened the presents now that it's proper ... thank you so much! So fabulous! :D

3. Am way behind on commenting and replying to comments and writing promised things ... sorry! I'll get to it all when I can, but for now I'm working frantically on a sekret fic. All will be revealed in due time. :D

There's a new version of Google: Blackle. It's black, which saves energy over a white screen ... there are details about that here. I don't know much about physics or computer screens, but it seems like a really nifty idea!

So, I was walking to school this morning and saw a gaggle of geese crossing the road. Seriously - there were three adults and 10-12 young ones, and they just stepped out into the road as though the traffic didn't exist. They did use the crosswalk, though. *g*

Traffic completely stopped from them, it was the funniest thing to see this busy road completely stopped while everybody waited for the geese!

no spoilers, but cut for DH babble anyway )

Going on your honeymoon, knowingly putting the health of hundreds to thousands of people at risk? So not cool ... especially when your new father-in-law studies Tb and should know better.

Also ... Please note, dear old Boston Globe, that Tb is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis ... that would be the bacterium, not the virus, just in case you were confused.

Thank you for the balloons, [insanejournal.com profile] lilyeyes! They're fabulous and I'm sure that they brought me good luck, because I had a wonderful day. :)

[insanejournal.com profile] coeur_de_ma_vie wrote Voices In Note, a sequel to my last [insanejournal.com profile] snarry100 drabble. Miraculously all of the angst and suffering disappeared and there's a happy ending - check it out!

I didn't have time to blink today, much less write any Snarry to celebrate our darling Severus's birthday, but I did spend the day in lab and the evening in the kitchen, and I said at least three snarky things, and several dozen utterly illogical things - I think that he'd approve, don't you? *g* Well, I'm sure that canon Snape wouldn't approve of my absolute lack of logic, but the drama queen fanon version would, right? It's so much easier to make dramatic, sweeping statements if you aren't confined by any sort of logic or rationality whatsoever. :)

What about you guys? Any insights into Severus's character, or birthday fics written?

Well, it's back to the kitchen for me. I'm making lab lunch for tomorrow ... trying out new recipes on unsuspecting victims coworkers ... Wish me luck! :)
