I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] kitty_fic

Rules: List the first lines of your last ten published stories. See if there are any patterns yourself, or if anyone else notices any! Tag up to ten friends!

Here's mine from most recent to oldest:

1. They faced each other, wands out and a fierce expression on their faces. (Birthdays and Holidays, Harry/Draco)
2. Draco had spent four months in a cell at the Ministry. (A Wild Ride, Harry/Draco)
3. Amsterdam had the best clubs in the wizarding world. (Finding James, James Sirius/Scorpius)
4. Draco was utterly bored. (Life Was But A Number, Draco/Sirius)
5. The campaign was in full swing. (The Inevitability of Us, Doug/TJ Hammond; Political Animals)
6. Scorpius entered the private triage room restricted to hit wizards and aurors. (The Worst Auror, James Sirius/Scorpius)
7. The silk sheets feel cool against his burning skin. (Moonlight Sonata, James Sirius/Draco)
8. Druella Burke hated Aurors. (Against All Odds, Ron/Draco)
9. Draco walked into the lobby of the Ritz. (Meeting at the Ritz, Charlie/Draco)
10. It'd been a year since those buses had transported the population of Oz out of its walls. (Don't Stop Believing, Miguel/Ryan, Oz)

Things in common: a lot of Harry Potter and a lot of Draco. Also my fics tend to be really long, but apparently my first sentences are always short and never part of dialogue.

Tagging: I don't even know who's still active, so I'm tagging anyone who wants to do it

FIRST LINES MEME!

I was tagged by [personal profile] kitty_fic to do this and figured why the hell not.

Rules: List the first lines of your last ten published stories. See if there are any patterns yourself, or if anyone else notices any! Tag up to ten friends!

Beginning with the most recent but not counting my drunk fic which I haven't cleaned up and a chapter of a WIP.

1) "Narcissa," Severus said as he opened his front door, "what an unexpected surprise."
Understudy (Severus/Narcissa)

2) Rose hadn't been working for the famously handsome Undersecretary Blaise Zabini for long but she understood two things very quickly: he was a ridiculously charming and everyone in the office knew it.
The Office (Scorpius/Rose, Blaise/Rose)

3) Academically, Severus knew there was no reason to be ashamed. Everyone had preferences.
Breaking Free (Severus/Harry)

4) "This will never work." Severus pinched the bridge of his nose between his fingers and sighed.
What About Us (Severus/Harry)

5) "God, I've missed you," Teddy murmured.
Consumed (Teddy/James)

6) Harry knew Draco by now, knew that when he wanted something, he'd get moody and irritable for a day or two and then it would burst out like a volcano erupting.
Cracking the Code (Harry/Draco)

7) When Harry was a kid, Dudley had said he was a freak.
Super Freak (Severus/Harry)

8) Draco wasn't particularly fond of children. They were messy, smelly, loud and, more to the point, took attention away from him. He tolerated Pansy's offspring, but that was primarily because she always cast a strong Sanitising charm on her way out the door.
One in a Million (Harry/Draco)

9) "Do you remember the first time?"
Cock Soup for the Soul (Teddy/James)

10) Severus squeezed his eyes shut and banged his fist on the worktop, beyond aggravated that he'd dropped yet another glass stirring rod. The nerves in his right hand had never been the same after Nagini tried to rip his throat out but, rather than improving, the situation was reaching the crisis point.
Crisis...Averted (Severus/Harry)

I'm not tagging people because I am annoying like that. Just go ahead and do the meme if you're interested!

As for a pattern, I think primarily I jump right in. This is probably because I drabble/write short fics and need to set the scene quickly.

Fandom Random

Potterverse Con happened this past weekend at the Bethesda North Marriott, and it was fantastic. I missed the HP cons, not so much for the source material, but the people. I went with [personal profile] sparkysparky. There we met up with [personal profile] cruisedirector and [profile] apaulled, [personal profile] treewishes and her sister, [personal profile] alisanne, [personal profile] torino10154, and [personal profile] dementordelta.

Let's just say that we were as quiet and subdued as always.

Now, I'm already planning for MistiCon and possibly LeakyCon.

In other news, Christmas fests are already staring. I've already signed up for:
[livejournal.com profile] hd_erised
[livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost
[livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest

Possible ones, although they are not all technically Christmas fest
[livejournal.com profile] mini_fest
[info]bbtp_challenge
[community profile] adventdrabbles
[community profile] snowflake_challenge (this one in January)
[personal profile] capitu's SEASONAL HP COMMENT-A-THON
And of course NaNoWriMo

We'll see what happens.

*waves*

Hey, all!
I'm back home after traveling yesterday (and delayed planes - boo), but was wiped when I got home so I went straight to bed.
Apologies for the recent radio silence, but between the RL destination wedding I attended, AND getting to hang with my bbs [personal profile] dementordelta and [personal profile] lilyseyes at LeakyCon, there wasn't much time for writing.
I will do my best to update all my WsIP this week (for those of you who follow them). ♥

BUT get ready for spam anyway because I have many updates to talk about.

1) There will be a LeakyCon post *g*
2) I got my most recent HP Lootcrate just before I left, so there's that to show you all
3) I have this week's (short) fic wrap up to post
4) There was this little thing called MY BIRTHDAY this past week and I OWE a ton of replies to posts and PMs, and emails.
5) And I have this week's SSHP Prophet to start collecting links for (technically that's not something I'll post here, but in my mind it counts).
Oh! And 6) I just got my [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised assignment, so I need to squee about that!


SO...more to come! MUAH!

Challenge #756: "Snape and Social Media: Snapchat."

Challenge 756: Snape and Social Media: Snapchat

(Posting early this week because of con busyness!)

This service allows people to share shot personal snippets of their lives with people Would Severus find it useful? It would certainly be amusing to see his face altered by some of its filters... However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Snapchat.

(Remember: drabble posts now appear on livejournal and insanejournal and dreamwidth.)

I love everybody *hic*

Hey, you guys!

So I haven't been online in a while, mainly because of vacation week, which includes my being at LeakyCon this weekend with [personal profile] dementordelta and [personal profile] lilyseyes (OMG, managed coding while drunk!) and we just came from dinner where we had several butterbeers (with butterscotch schnapps and Captain Morgan's rum), and so I am tipsy.

Which means I should be just in time for [community profile] firewhiskeyfic tonight! *crosses fingers that coding's correct*

AND I am trying to bring Delta and Lily to the party, too, wish me luck! *g*

Anyway, this was all to say THANK YOU for all the wonderful birthday wishes (which I will reply to soon, I promise). Just know I adore you all. ♥
