I chose the colour blue. I have no idea why -- it's my least favourite colour!

About six months ago, I saw an advert on TV, saying, 'If you have these symptoms, you need to see your doctor.'

Some good news and some food icons...Collapse )

Bits and bobs...

November 21st, 2013 (11:52 pm)

I can't believe I haven't posted anything since 12 July! Where has the time gone?

The past six weeks or so was swallowed up modding this year's round of dramione_duet, which is always a bit hair-raising and, this year, involved making some art and writing a pinch-hit story, Be careful what you wish for (NC-17).

Dramione_duet art...Collapse )

I've been making quite a lot of art recently, including three pieces for the Hawthorn and Vine Reverse Challenge (which will have been sent out to writers as prompts by now, and I can't wait to see the results in early 2014), and also some illustrations for a brilliant Judge Dredd/Judge Anderson story, by hiddencait, called America, don't you cry.

Illustrations for 'America, Don't You Cry'...Collapse )

Other than the pinch-hit story, the only writing I've managed to finish has been a few dmhgchallenge drabbles:

But I have bought another little guinea pig to keep the first company (because I'm very good at buying things):

Something old, some things new...

July 12th, 2013 (07:44 pm)

I'm just coming to the end of a week off work, and I'll bet you're thinking I've been really lucky with the weather -- 25 - 30 degrees Celsius every day! -- except that I hate hot weather, and I've wasted most of the week either flaked out on the couch, or scuttling from one air-conditioned place to another, spending far too much money in Waterstones -- which must have the best air con in Manchester -- in Paperchase, and at the local garden centre.

I couldn't resist this little fellow:

But every time I spot him nibbling his dandelions as I pass the kitchen window, I jump out of my skin, thinking he's real!

And...Collapse )


Some very, very nice person nominated one of my drabbles for the latest round of the HP Fanfic Fan Poll Awards, and it came second! The funny thing is, it's the same drabble that got me eliminated from a Last Drabble Writer Standing challenge. There's just no telling, is there? So a big thank you to whoever nominated it, and to everyone who voted for it, and congratulations to all the other nominees and winners :-) I have posted it here before, but I thought I'd post it again, with its shiny banner.

Title: Of gift horses and mouths
Prompt: The Room of Requirement
Rating: PG

The Price of Victory

April 17th, 2013 (04:33 pm)

I haven’t been posting my Dramione stories here because the people on my f-list who are into Dramione will already have had the chance to read them elsewhere, but I’m sort of proud of this one, especially of the setting (though it’s probably much richer in my head than it is in the story ;-)

Prompt: Prostitution
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): Hermione Granger/Draco Malfoy; mention of Hermione/other Death Eaters
Summary: Reduced to working as a prostitute in the ruins of King’s Cross Station, Hermione Granger has a fateful encounter with Draco Malfoy.
Warnings/Content Notes: Explicit sex, swearing, and vocabulary appropriate to the scenario; Voldemort-wins AU; mention of previous character deaths; possible character bashing. The black banner is intentionally black!
Word Count: ~ 8000
Author's Notes: Thank you to rhye for submitting the prompt! The moment I saw it, some of the ideas I’d had for continuing a couple of the drabbles I’d written for dmhgchallenge came together as a story, but the plot grew out of all proportion to the porn, and kept developing holes that had to be back-filled. I’ve put one of the drabbles in an endnote, together with a few other bits of background information. Special thanks also to reetinkerbell for recommending a certain type of ending, and thereby forcing me to re-think the plot ;-)

106 Icons!

April 15th, 2013 (12:20 am)

It's been a long time since I posted anything, and I know I've been very bad about commenting and about replying to emails. My only excuse is that, shortly after Christmas, I hit an all time low. But yesterday, quite unexpectedly, I suddenly started feeling better! I have no idea why -- maybe because I have a cold and, almost literally, can't breathe. In the past I've generally felt better after a sudden shock, like falling off the boat and cracking my head, or waking up in a shower of water because the roof was leaking...

(And just writing that has made me miss the boat so much. I wasn't made to live in a house).

Anyway, I think it's adrenalin, and I hope it lasts a while.

I've a few things I've been meaning to post (and I really want to do the 21 First Lines meme because, as far as I know, that's everything I've ever written and more) but I'm starting with almost a year's worth of icons.

Sadly, that's only 106!
