GG - Rory Reading
luvscharlie mentioned this, and I think it’s a great idea. I’m going to read 50 books in 2010 (well, I’m going to count the books I started reading over Christmas as well because I’m anal and like a series to be complete). Anyway, here’s the running list of the books I’ve finished, and to give myself some incentive to finish this project (unlike most challenges I start), I’m officially going to allow myself to spend 50€, apparently I need more incentive than that 100€ at amazon (without subjecting myself to any sort of guilt trip) if I make it to 50 books!

Here’s the list. The date indicates the day I’ve finished the books.

Total: 36/50

Rating: R
Pairing: Draco/Hermione
Word Count: 200 words
Warnings: violence, blood, gore
Summary: Their most famous Halloween skit.
A/N: ratherbsailing asked for horror and I tried to make this as Halloween-y as possible. I just had to discover that 200 words don't allow for much room to describe the gory details. I hope you still enjoy the drabble though. Happy Halloween!

Thanks uniquepov for the quick beta.

23rd-Mar-2010 08:03 pm - Featured Reviewer for March
HP - Dramione - Broken Pieces
This month I was the featured reviewer at Hawthorn & Vine and I got to rec four stories. I chose the following one-shots and I thought I should post them here as well.

Featured Reviewer Rec for Week 1:
Fourth Time's the Charm by atalanta84 — I’m probably a bit biased because this fic has been written for me, but Fourth Time’s Charm is absolutely amazing. It is light-hearted, funny and very entertaining. Also, it contains a great new catchphrase. :) You’ll know what I mean when you read it.

Featured Reviewer Rec for Week 2:
Castle by Little Dollface — Set during HBP, this fic consists of a few poignant snapshots, showing what could have happened between Draco and Hermione during the sixth book. It is beautiful, intense, realistic, and most importantly, a great portrayal of their characters.

Featured Reviewer Rec for Week 3:
Blind Date by Marmalade Fever — This oneshot is just incredibly funny. Don’t let the original character deter you from reading. She is just the means to set Draco and Hermione up for the blind date. The story focuses on the date itself, which is nothing short of hilarious.

Featured Reviewer Rec for Week 4:
The Gentle Strains by yesterday4 — This is just a short piece from Astoria’s point of view, but it shows that Draco and Hermione will always be drawn to each other. It is also one of the few epilogue compliant fics I have read and liked. A heart-wrenching and bittersweet tale that is simple yet tragic at the same time.


And while I'm already channeling my inner pimp:

Merlin - Hand
Title: Unseemly Behaviour
Author: kalina_blue
Rating: PG
Characters: Arthur, Merlin
Word Count: 100
Warnings/Spoilers: none
Prompt: #2 Cabbage
Summary: Merlin in the stocks. Again.
A/N: Written for the Arthur100 challenge at arphwoar.


Merlin thought it was a grave injustice that he got put in the stocks for unseemly behaviour when the King had heard him call Arthur a prat. Like Merlin was the only one who behaved improper at times.

The King’s unwillingness to see reason where magic was concerned was unseemly for a ruler, and Gaius was breaking the law and harbouring a warlock right under his king’s nose. Very unseemly as well.

Not to mention Prince Arthur, who was currently hiding underneath a beggar’s cloak and throwing rotten cabbage at his own manservant. He was definitely behaving unseemly. The prat.
21st-Mar-2010 03:48 am - Fic: Under the Sun (Arthur, Merlin)
Merlin - Arthur
Title: Under the Sun
Author: kalina_blue
Rating: PG
Characters: Arthur, Merlin
Word Count: 100
Warnings/Spoilers: none
Prompt: #1 Sun
Summary: Sometimes fight practice with Merlin has unpredictable consequences.
A/N: Written for the Arthur100 challenge at arphwoar


Arthur lay flat on his back, blinking up into the sun and trying to figure out how he had come to be on the ground. He had been sparring with Merlin, and his idiotic manservant had managed to trip over his own feet while attempting to block one of Arthur’s blows.

Arthur had tried to dodge his servant’s flailing limps, but there had been no escape.

He was still trying to catch his breath when a figure came to stand over him, blocking out the sun.

“I’m really sorry I knocked you out… sire.”

“You are a terrible liar, Merlin.”

I’ve started posting my Dramione fics at Hawthorn and Vine, and I realised that it has been month since I updated any of my ongoing fics. Chapter 2 of The Space Between has actually been finished long ago, but I never heard back from my second beta.

Is anyone else willing to take a look at it?
21st-Dec-2009 02:35 am - Dead in the Family - Chapter 1 Review
True Blood - Eric & Sookie promo
The first chapter of Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse 10) has gone online at Charlaine Harris’ homepage. My first thought when I saw the link was that I better not read it because it is a long time until May and it would do me no good to get all riled up five months in advance.

Three seconds later I clicked the link and read the bloody chapter.

I guess I will never learn.

See below the cut for my thoughts on the chapter.

ICON MEME
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

isisizabel picked these icons for me:



1. Abby from NCIS. I have to giggle every time I see that icon. It was made by casett.
2. This is actually one of my favourite Dramione icons that I made. It's rather simple, but I love the colors and the manip I used for the pic in the middle. I alsoo have a thing for tiny text.
3. B&W with a splash of colour is my favourite icon style. I thought this icon was particularly beautiful. It was made by delayed_poet.
4. I love Christmas, so obviously I need to have icons for that occasion. I love the homey atmosphere of this one. It was made by son_of_darkness.
5. Another one of my own icons. I made a batch from the early promotion images from New Moon, though I don't think I ever got around to posting this. I will at this point try to refrain from gushing about the movie. I love it, love it, love it. (I'm done, I promise).

Tw New Moon - Jacob
You guys, New Moon is AWESOME!!! I just got back from the Twilight night in Luxembourg and it has been absolutely incredible.

I'll type my thoughts about the movie as soon as I am coherent enough to do so (sleeping first might also be a good idea, considering it't 3am). Don't worry about spoilers though, I'll put everything behind a cut.


Have I mentioned I LOVE this movie?

Halloween sexy
Happy Halloween, my dear F-list! I got lots of fandom treats to share. :)

The 200 word drabbles are being posted at hp_halloween. vegetasbubble wrote me a wonderfully creepy drabble called Final Revenge. I have to warn you though, it’s not for the faint of heart.

Also, my mailbox at luvlikerocketz contains many, many awesome treats:

ldymusyc wrote If My Day Keeps Going This Way

atalanta84 wrote Fourth Time’s the Charm

yesterday4 wrote The Fourth Time's A Charm

dracodew17 wrote Once and Again Part 1 and Part 2 (It’s a trick. The pairing is Harry/Pansy although Draco and Hermione are mentioned.)

rivertempest wrote His Mistake (Another trick. The pairing is Charlie/Hermione this time.)

All my gifts are extremely well written and absolutely amazing, and I’m not just saying that because they were written for me. I can only recommend you read them.

I’ll post the drabble I wrote for hp_halloween after this entry. The first chapter of the never-ending ficlet has already been posted. The story is called The Space Between. Make sure you check out the amazing banner (and matching icon) draconis23 made for me.

My other entries for luvlikerocketz were all icons. I’ll post them in a few days, since I think they haven’t all been revealed yet. Looks like some people haven’t turned in all their treats.
