Two months from today is our very own Harry Potter's 40th birthday and if there's anyone who deserves a party, it's him!
In light of that, lightofdaye
and I are pleased to announce:art by mywitch
We've got a comm set up on DW and a collection will open up on AO3. Please spread the word far and wide on your journals, Discord, Tumblr, Myspace... *g*
The short version is any and all pairings, genres, media, etc as long as Harry himself has got a featured part and then for roughly 36 hours on July 31st (to take time zones into account) people can post to our DW account and/or to the collection on AO3. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Let us know if you've got questions!
So. Today, those of us in the U.S. are watching a historic launch on a backdrop of massive civil unrest. I feel like I went to sleep in 2020 and woke up in 1969.
Except I'm not quite sure where COVID-19 fits in, since that's more of an 1918 thing.
I've been wanting to check in for a while and ask how everyone's holding up. You all still okay out there, even though we have a pandemic in full swing? I know a lot of folks who are vulnerable or have loved ones who are vulnerable, and it's making me want to reach out and try to get in touch with basically everyone I've had any connection with in the last fifteen years. Argh.
Personally, I'm probably doing better than most. Work-wise, I've been deemed "essential personnel," so my paycheck is unaffected. (Plus my workplace has been on a pretty tight lockdown with few people allowed into my workspace -- although that's about to end, so that's a bit worrisome.) And I'm a pro at this "social distancing" thing, since I rarely go anywhere unnecessary in the best of times. :P
I've been lucky so far, all things considered. But lately I just keep feeling like I've gained a much deeper understanding of the meaning of that old curse. "Interesting times," indeed. It just keeps getting more "interesting" by the day. Oof.
So, yeah, how are all of you doing? Drop a quick note and let me know you're still hanging in there.
This one looks promising. I love make-over - falling in love stories. Oh, Pygmalion!
but more like My fair lady
typah ending. The Masterpiece
By Bonnie Dee
After making a wager, gentleman playboy Arthur sets out to transform working-class Joe’s life — only to kindle an unlikely attraction! A passionate same-sex twist on My Fair Lady.
I really like Bonnie Dee. She's not a fav (except when she collabs w/ another author, then the pair is super rocking) but I do enjoy her books a lot. I love historial gay romance pieces. So I'm sure it'll be awesome. LINK HERE
♥ HAVE FUN.

Posted the second of my two entries for hphet
's Mini Fest.
It's a PG-13, Severus/Rosmerta ficlet that you can read on DW
Do check out the fest--all the entries are a nice bite-sized read between 500-1500 words.
You have one week left for the rarepair_shorts
WISHLIST EVENT - to leave a wish. This is one of the only fests where it's a gift for you, but it's not an exchange. You leave a wish of what kinda Harry Potter rare pair fic / art you'd like over the summer. It's a GIFT FOR YOU and you don't have to do anything in exchange! There are many authors and artists eager to participate in giving you a gift. But you're the one who has to leave a wishlist first!
So far we have 14 "secret wishes" and we'd like more. All the wishes will be revealed on May 31! So Get it together, and leave a wish by the 30th of May!
Pimp the fest. Grab a pimping banner on LJ

I have a question for those familiar with, well, collections that find themselves somewhere between completely open and very tightly closed. I've done the latter for fests, where the mod posts, everything is anon, etc. I am looking at, perhaps, something more like post it yourself but the mod reveals the entries. I just want to be sure I get the settings right. And, actually, I'm thinking something similar for DW. Anyway, if anyone has advice, let me know.
And yes, that does mean I am cooking up something though if you're also friends with lightofdaye
, you may have some inkling already. *vbg*
