Well, poo. My computer died. Or rather, Geoff's computer died along with the ethernet, so I am currently at the library to post this.

First, happy belated birthdays to everyone whom I haven't wished happy birthday to. I'm sorry I'm not naming you by name, but my (lack of) memory combined with my lack of time and frazzledness factor means I will forget someone, and I don't want to hurt any feelings. Know that I thought of everyone of you on your birthday, even if I didn't mention it on LJ that day. Also, happy birthday to those whose birthdays are coming up. May this coming year be wonderful for you and your loved ones.

Second, I was going to post the epilogue of SMHC today to completely finish it off, but... I will see if I can do so on this computer (thank goodness I sent it off to Sun for betaing before the computer died so it's accessible!), but if I can't, I apologize for the delay.

Third, I'm off to the beach! With Geoff! Whee! We should be back Sunday evening, although I'm not sure the computer will have recovered by then or not. *shrug* But anyway, I am SO looking forward to this break, you have no idea.

So, happy weekend, all!

ETA: Epilogue is up! Cheers, all!

Oh, btw...

I posted the last chapter of SMHC last night. It's up at Owl, TPP and Ashwinder,

I'll post the (very short) epilogue sometime before Friday.

Chapter 26 is now up at TPP and will be up at Owl and Ashwinder very shortly.


This is the penultimate chapter. It's almost done. Whee!

(and sorry for the lack of responses to the reviews left. I will get to them, I promise! All two years' worth. *bites lip*)

Chapter 25 is now up at Owl, Ashwinder and TPP!

I'm sitting here in front of the computer and feeling... lost. I've been needing to finish that story for so long that it's ingrained in my psyche as a permanent item on my "to do" list. Kind of like laundry. I sort of flounder when that's all done, too.

Unlike laundry, however, this isn't going to need me in a few days time. It's done.

Yes, there are other stories that need my attention, and I will turn my attention to them soon, but... but... but.....

I guess I need to start on my drawble prompts. Get my mind off the fact that I am done. I now only need to wait for the betas to work their comma magic.

(Oh, and as a heads up, I will be posting chapter 25 tomorrow at some point. =D )

In celebration of finishing SMHC, I have begun to post it to the Pit of Voles. I'll be submitting a chapter or two a day until I've caught up with the other archives, and then post them simultaneously.

I've edited the first chapter a fair amount, bringing it down (I hope) to an 'M'. If one or some of you would do me a favor and go look at it, make sure it is safe-ish in that rating, I would appreciate it.

Consider it a chance to catch up on the story!

Thank you in advance!

I'm done.

I am ONE scene away from finishing this chapter, and therefore basically finishing the story (I need to rework chapter 26 significantly). ONE!

And yet, words are coming slower and slower as my eyes just want to drift shut.

But this is my only hour to write.

But the sofa beckons...

Maybe some food would perk me up. No tea allowed, unfortunately, but food might do the trick.

(Everyone's been posting grrrs, so...)

I am freezing, though. Last night was cold and we only had a sheet and a thin blanket. Cuddled up to Geoff, it was tolerable, but as soon as he got out of bed, I had to curl up on myself. Getting up to get another blanket would have been way too much work (just the thought of where the blanket was exhausted me). Then it was cold in the house this morning, as we turned the furnace off about two months ago. So I wore my coat. Came home from dropping Babe off, and continued wearing the coat.

Now the windows and door are open to try and get rid of the awful, hideous smell of perfumed floor cleaner (wetjet stuff is NASTY! If I'd known it was so heavily perfumed, I would never have bought the thing!!!) so I don't get a migraine. So... I'm wrapped in a blanket, trying to warm my hands on the computer.

Yeah. Not working.

I wish I knew where my other slipper was.

In happy news, I have done the outline for what I do believe is going to be THE FINAL CHAPTER!!! It might be too long to post as one chapter, but, yeah... I am PSYCHED!!! And everything is turning out as it was supposed to! It's like I planned it or something! ;-)

In less good news, a good portion of Geoff's coworkers saw Babe trying to punch me, proving what awesome parents we are. Yeah. Not happy. All because I refused the brat a piece of candy before he had lunch.

But I'm almost finished with SMHC! YAY! And that's what's really important, isn't it? Not that whole parenting thing...

Um. Yay?

SMHC ramblings )

As for the rest of life... I have to remember not to take pain killers in the morning. I took another six hour nap again today, but this time Geoff wasn't around to watch Babe, so Babe made a few messes. Poor kid. I feel for him having such a tired mom, but sometimes, it can't be helped.

Fortunately, by the time I did wake up, the weather had cleared up enough to go for a bike ride. Just around the cul-de-sac, but that was nice. I'm so glad he's gotten over his Christmas crash... Well, except for not wanting to ride his new bike. But that will pass soon enough.

And then he went and played with Neighbor!girl for a few hours. Yay! She's so smitten with him, it's cute. And it's hilarious how he just shrugs it off. He'd rather be playing with the boys. *g*

Earlier today I was bitten with the moving bug again. I looked up available jobs in Saskatchewan, since, if we move anywhere it would probably need to be someplace with good public health care.

Thing is, I don't know if I can live in farm land. Our allergies are bad enough here in suburbia, and that would be one of the main reasons for moving anywhere. Well, besides getting Geoff away from his current job.

God, he needs a new job! One that doesn't dumb him down or make him feel so damn inferior!

But that's old news. So I'll save it for when it reaches the boiling point again, whenever that may be.

What else?


Yeah. Life's pretty boring. I'm enjoying Lost, but whenever Richard comes on screen, I now think of him as Loki. It takes a second to remember his character's real name. And the teaser for the next episode is confusing. How do those three get back on the island?

But I can't wait for the season cliffhanger. It should be a blast! Even if they do mess with the theory of chronodynamics.

Anyway, that's all right now. Hope you all are well.

Geez. I leave for five days and all hell breaks loose! WTH? Sickness (I will not get into how appalled I am by the whole Swine Flu panic, except to say, "LOOK AT THE ENIVRONMENTAL CONDITIONS, PEOPLE!"), personal health scares, death... there hasn't been any dismemberment going on, has there? Oh, hell. Rosedemon wrote about a three legged dog and Pigwidgeon joked about... well... But those don't count cuz there wasn't real misery involved...

So yeah. I'm back now, so you all better cut that shit out right now, you hear? You be healthy and happy, DAMMIT!!!

My life hasn't been that bad, though. )

So, hi! Good to be back. Hope you all get better!

SMHC woes

Right. I am trying to finish this chapter. I really am. I have had the chapter 25 document open and minimized every thinking day of the last two weeks (granted, that only amounts to about five days total, but...)

But I've reached a scene I really, really don't want to write. But I really think I have to write.... *checks outline*

Or maybe...


You guys are the greatest!

I now have about 3000 words for the next chapter of SMHC, and I realized, after reading the brief summary from the outline, that I've only barely touched what I want to get through in this chapter.

But there's more Sev/Herm time. Including a misunderstanding.


I think one of the plot points will have to be moved out to the next chapter (again) as I don't see it fitting with this chapter's contents. Not without putting the chapter on the wrong side of enormous.

But figuring that out will have to wait till later. Tonight Geoff and I are finally going to see Watchmen! Yay!

At about 2500 words, but it's a very choppy chapter. Still have at least one more scene to go, though at this rate, I might as well include the one after that, too.

I may be sacrificing Severus/Hermione time for plot movement. I want this story finished!

It didn’t take long for her emotions to settle, but she kept her head hidden as she asked, “I’m assuming you saw the letter?”

“I should be outraged that you think I’d pry into your private correspondences,” he replied in a dry tone while stroking her hair.

“I’ll take that as a yes, then,” she said, earning her an amused snort.


800 words and counting!

SMHC has been UPDATED!

It should be up at both TPP and Ashwinder, and is in queue at Owl.

It only took... how long? No, I'm not going to look. It would just depress me. I suggest you don't look either, as it'll probably anger you.

Anyway, chapter 24 is finally, finally up, and it might even be a decent chapter.


averygoodun42: (Default)
Just sent chapter 24 off to alpha beta. Am feeling odd sense of... accomplishment?

No, I think it's a chocolate buzz.


Yeppers. Definitely chocolate buzz.
averygoodun42: (Default)
Without the sex scene - or revisions and rewrites - chapter 24 of SMHC is at 5700 words.

Now I just have to write that scene... Or the pertinent bits of that scene. No pun intended.
averygoodun42: (Default)
Why should writing be so difficult? Writing on task that is, not this verbal diarrhea that counts as journalling (and should therefore probably not be public, but, hey, I'm a social dunce so therefore I'll ignore social mores for now).

Why is thinking so difficult? Concentrating. Discipline. I guess that's my answer, but why should something that is so... obvious, so... natural be so damn difficult to do?

Of course, it doesn't help when my verbal center shuts down and won't allow me to access my vocabulary.

On the plus side, I have managed to write about 1,000 words of SMHC in the last couple of days, so yay. I'm that much closer to an update. On the down side, every bloody sentence is a struggle, and I'm afraid it shows. I dread the printed-out read-through edit. I expect it will be as bad as chapter 10 of MAC was before revisions. *shudders*

I want to get SMHC finished this year. I would like to get all of my non-abandoned WIPs finished this year. But first comes SMHC, because, yeah. It needs to be finished.

But I really need to go to bed now, as tomorrow is a school day for Babe, which means waking up godawful early. Oh well.

First, Happy birthday to dear Keladry! You are an awesome person and beta, and I am so grateful to know you at least this little LJ bit.

For the rest of you, Merry Christmas! And for you I have a little offering (not much) of fic, but alas, with no ( or lite) smut.

But here you go, and I hope you enjoy the unfinished, unbetaed and unrevised first part of chapter 24: She Married Her Choice:
