I ran around doing errands today. Went to the bank with my latest unemployment check (hooboy, I'm rich now! *snort*), FINALLY got the mess with the free insulin straightened out and picked that up, went to the bookstore and found the book I'd needed so I could read the books in order, went to the sex shop (and no, I'm not telling what I got), went to the post office, and then picked up milk.
In other exciting news, I am planning to go to the mini-HP meet in Austin this weekend. I will drive there and back with kissaki, who will hopefully get some sleep before then and not torture me with strange music the whole trip, and then share a room with the incredibly generous nmalfoy, who wants only cookies in return. So I am making her chocolate chip/peanut butter chip cookies on Friday to bring with me. If you are going to be there and you want cookies, you will have to ask her nicely. :) I am bringing HP Trivia and we will have to do other silly HP things. Just don't make me walk anywhere. *bounces*
Just for the heck of it, I decided to check my reviews on FFnet. I rarely do this because I don't get many, which, considering the number of hits on my website, is rather surprising. I think I'm going to code my fics and put them up on my site soon. But now, it's time for Reviews I Either Liked or Found Amusing!
First, for Visibility, Guntar said:
Dumbledore’s parting comments to them, however, were more than Harry really wanted to know about his headmaster’s private life. “Of course,” and Harry thought he saw a look of wistful longing in older man’s eyes, “I can’t see the bother of all this when there are nice, warm socks.”
That is the funniest thing I have ever read. It alone made the story awesome.
Why, thank you. I love that myself. For some reason, I seem to be the only one who thinks that Dumbledore/Socks is a legitimate pairing. ;) However, I do not intend to write it!!
For My Favorite Mistake, Autumn Eve said:
You have one hell of a talent.
That's one of the best compliments I've ever gotten, even if I'm not sure I believe it. Thank you.
For Necrocommunion, Anakah said:
Interesting. I've never seen this done and I must say... It's not bad. In a twisted way I understood. Good story.
and Kronic said of the same:
Very well written, but freaky.
I have to admit, it still floors me that a) in terms of reviews, this is apparently one of my most-read stories, and b) most people are complimentary. When Libertine first approached me to write this, we both expected to get a lot of flames over it, and yes, we got a few. But the majority of reviews ARE positive. Go fig.
For Sex in the Village, Phorc said:
This is nearly the funniest thing I've ever read. (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy still number one, sorry...) I was crying after I found out Harry was gay. Laughing/crying, that is. In any case, keep writing, I'm curious to see how it all will turn out. And if you don't mind, can we get Cho in here somewhere...?
Being second to Hitchhiker's Guide is probably a LOT more than I deserve. I am humbled.
Also for SitV, Autumn Eve (from above) reviews again:
Aside from your writing, which I will comment on later, I just want you to know, it's "sex AND the city" not "sex IN the city," lol I watch it religiously.
Well, yes. I know that. I watch it too, otherwise, I don't think I could write this story. It's Sex IN the Village on purpose. Really it is. But, thanks? O_o
I think that's enough for now. See what happens when I don't check reviews for months? There actually ARE some!
The second book written and the third chronologically, you're the story of a Narnia hundreds of years after the last visit, populated by mythological creatures struggling to overthrow a king determined to wipe them out. Susan's Horn brings help when it's most needed ...
