This has the potential, they just need the funds to make it so.

Here is the link to donate if you are so inclined.

Oh my goodness! teddyradiator, you are simply fantastic! I couldn't be happier with the gifts from our mutual “friend.” It is something I’ll cherish for a very long time indeed! They are so stinking cute, and they're already on the tree!

I only just found this today. For a fan-made video it is surprisingly good, and adds some perspective on the Dumbledore/Grindelwald feud. I just thought I'd share for those interested.

I have pretty much been absent from the LiveJournal scene for the last month. I cannot believe it is already December!  It has been busy between Thanksgiving and preparing for Christmas, but I've finally managed to pull the tree from storage. We decided to forgo the traditional ornaments we always use and do something a little bit differently.

I thought you lot would appreciate this especially....

For those of you who have participated in the previous rounds of NaNoWriMo, where did you get the nifty little word counters for your LiveJournal pages? I remember some of you saying your counters reset for the 2013 round in previous posts, but I can't seem to find where to get my own little word counter.

This being my first round and all, I'm a wee bit overwhelmed with my daily target goal. I'm a wee bit overwhelmed by the prospect of it all, really.

Resonare Mortis and The Tie That Binds have been nominated for the fall/winter 2013 round of the hpfanficfanpoll awards!

To whom ever nominated the fics for Best Drama-Angst, thank you so very much! You have no idea how excited/petrified/happy I am (In my haste to celebrate I almost threw the laptop across the room!) Resonare Mortis was truly a labour of love, and The Tie That Binds was a blast to write. I feel ridiculously honored to be featured alongside so many talented writers. Again, I thank you to the moon and back!

Your result for The Remarkably Thorough Harry Potter Character Test...

Severus Snape

"The Dark Arts are many, varied, ever-changing and eternal. Fighting them is like fighting a many-headed monster, which, each time a neck is severed, sprouts a head even fiercer and cleverer than before. You are fighting that which is unfixed, mutating, indestructible."

You are Severus Snape, the Potions Master and eventual Headmaster of Hogwarts. Professor Snape is cold, calm, and calculating. He prefers to roam the world alone and unloved, for the only woman he ever loved married another. His bitterness stems from Lily’s rejection, and the fact that he couldn’t save her from Voldemort adds to his endless grief. Not to mention she married his worst enemy - talk about a slap in the face! As a spy, he is the ultimate dark protagonist, much like Batman or Beatrix Kiddo. It is impossible to deduce what he is feeling or thinking because he rarely ever reacts to situations. You are similar to Snape in the sense that you are both angry individuals. You tend to hide from people rather than embrace them in friendship, and you do not tolerate being talked down to or belittled. What people don’t know, however, is that you are merely wearing a mask. The hard shell that surrounds you is there only to cover the anguish you feel on a day-to-day basis. Secretly, you are a lover, but the pain of life has condemned you to a cynical perspective. I suggest that you take a long hard look at what's really bothering you, and do whatever you can to heal yourself. Whether that means taking a vacation, going skydiving, playing video games, calling up some friends to go see a movie, it's up to you. Do what makes you happy, and don't let the world get you down!

In short, you are more:

Cautious than impulsive

Mature than immature

Arrogant than modest

Normal than weird

Introverted than extroverted

Your polar opposites are Fred and George Weasley.

Stolen from teddyradiator and dickgloucester

Real Name, Time Lord of Gallifrey, is now known as The Destroyer.

Laralee, Time Lord of Gallifrey, is known as The Engineer.

Heh! Both make me sound way more important than I really am.

And now it’s going to whip my arse.

I start Couch-to-5K tomorrow as well as a 60 day trial with the Insanity workout. Would’ve started both today, but it’s too bloody hot to even breathe outside. I couldn’t imagine running in the heat. So tomorrow, the regimen begins promptly at 6:30—before it gets too hot, but mostly because I won’t have to deal with people watching my flab shimmy while I run. My goal is to get back down to the weight I was when I started college. I’ve got about 20lbs to lose, and hope it comes from the thighs rather than the chest area.

There is a 5K in August in the city where I live, but the one I’m really looking forward to is the Urban Mountain challenge in January. It’s basically a stair climbing race, roughly 29 floors and around 638 stairs. Last year, someone finished in four minutes, which leads me to believe he found a way to teleport and isn’t telling the rest of us.

In other news, today is my wedding anniversary. We’ve not done a thing today except be lazy. Dinner has been planned for the weekend as well as a trip to the bookstore. Tomorrow it is the midnight showing of the new Superman movie. The hubs is excited, but I’ll have to remember to take some headache meds as the 3-D glasses mess with my head.

Hope all is well with the f-list, especially those that will inevitably have to deal with this massive threat of severe weather. We’re under an advisory here, but all of that is supposed to change tonight. I’ve got the cat carriers and the emergency duffle by the door in case the wind gets out of hand.

Hugs to all and stay safe!

A review I just received on FF.net

Nice job. I like the line "salaciously smug grin", but it didn't seem like
Hermione. Aw, screw this, Snamione is a completely OOC pairing. But very well
done! I hope you R&R my stories too. Thank you for sharing!

Rude much? I've never had someone leave me a review asking for me to review. I am assuming that is not the norm. Plus, she writes pairings I don't care  for, so I doubt I will be doing any "R&R"-ing of her stories, rudeness aside.
