I know I've been immersing myself way too much in fandom when I start having R/S dreams. This one was probably the most tragic AU imaginable. Somehow, in the fallout of Halloween 1981, Remus was fingered as the traitor, and was killed. Sirius ended up raising Harry, believing that his lover had betrayed him and killed his best friends. When Harry was nearly grown up (16 or so) they somehow learn the truth, and Sirius was of course devastated and confessed to Harry about the relationship he had kept secret all those years. There weren't a lot of details, just a whole lot of sad.

I could probably do something with it, but it would probably have to be a pretty long, complex story, and frankly, I have enough of those on my hands without killing poor Remus for the sake of another. If anyone thinks they can use this bunny, take it with my compliments. Let me know if you decide to do something with it.

Here's me wishing Harry Potter and (yesterday) Neville Longbottom, my [livejournal.com profile] prophecy_boys, a very happy 30th birthday! Yes, I'm a dork. But at least I feel less old when I realise they're only a couple of years younger than me.

In other news, someone needs to kick my butt and tell me to get back to work on A Conspiracy of Cartographers. Because I seem to have been writing porn. Sure, it's a heartwarming tale of how a threesome might have brought about a more satisfactory conclusion to the First War for MWPP + Lily, but it's *not helpful* in that I can't really share it until the [livejournal.com profile] rs_games finish up in October, since it's a sort-of-spinoff of the story I'm submitting for that.

I also wasted a bunch of time this week going back through my journal archive and tagging the fuck out of absolutely everything. Just in case anyone ever needs to find out in a hurry how many fandom-related dreams I've had. :p

Right. Back to writing for real now.

For those of you who don't know, I started writing this story over three years ago. I most sincerely apologise for how long it has taken me to get to the end of it. I am finishing it today as a birthday present to my betrothed, the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] chiv, who has been pestering me to get it done for almost as long as we have been together.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] chiv!

I've drawn threads from a lot of my other fics into the last few chapters, but I hope it all makes sense. The epilogue especially ended up having a lot more to do with Harry and Remus than the Weasley twins, but it's fanfic, and I go where it takes me. If it was an original story for publication, I might have been more vigilant about the focus. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the results.

Yes! I called it! Harry is Wizard of the Month for October on Jo's website. I bet she's going to move through all the major characters.

At the moment, I am writing character deaths and action sequences, which is unsurprisingly exhausting. I'm about to kill one of my favourite characters. Somebody hold me. :p

I guess it's about time I had another look at my pre-Deathly Hallows theories, and found out how many I got right. Shall we see how I did?

Many DH SPOILERS follow.... )

Hmmm...looks like I got quite a lot wrong, but at the same time, did not do too badly either. Go me!

I've just finished my chapter-a-day close analysis of the HP books for [livejournal.com profile] deathly_cntdwn and [livejournal.com profile] read_hp, during which time I've taken copious notes (ie, around 15-35 per chapter) on various thoughts, theories, and squees over JKR's genius in general. I've more or less let this thing eat my life over the past several months, and it's not over yet. In 53 hours, I will have Deathly Hallows in my hands. I plan to devour it as quickly as possible, taking just a few notes along the way, and then begin a slower chapter-by-chapter analysis over the coming month.

What do I want from this book? Well, there are three things that I think will bother me if I don't get them:

1) I want there to be more to the Tonks subplot than we've been given so far. It felt even more "off" during this reading than the first two.
2) I want a really good death scene that will have me in floods of tears. Preferably Remus.
3) I want Harry and Neville to live so that I will have a postwar 'ship I really like without resorting to AU.

There are lots of other smaller things I would like to see, but I trust JKR to provide us with an interesting story, full of plenty of twists and turns that we never expected. I'm ready. Are you?

This time tomorrow, I'll be at Sectus! Woo!

I've suddenly become very interested in the idea of Neville/Harry/Ginny, and I think my feelings about that threesome is very similar to my feelings about Plato/Jim/Judy in Rebel Without a Cause. You might even draw parallels between the characters, though of course they are very different. Plato is as lost and abandoned and parentless and picked on as Neville, and admires Jim as Neville does Harry. Jim and Harry are equally angsty teens with a strong desire to take charge and take action, trying to learn how to be men in a difficult and confusing world. And Judy, well, she's stuck halfway between being a girl and being a woman; she's a bit of a wild one, and capable of great passion.

Damn, I love that movie.... You really could cut the slashy subtext with a knife. It's not even that subtle. Sal Mineo (Plato) and James Dean (Jim) have enormous on-screen chemistry -- moreso than Dean and Natalie Wood (Judy) -- possibly because Mineo was gay and Dean (if the stories are true) was at least bisexual. The movie also has an air of tragedy, since all three stars died well before their time, and James Dean before the film was even released.

The other day when I went to post Linked, I learned that LJ had no Harry/Neville community. Considering the number of communities pairing not only Harry, but also Neville, with various other characters, this really surprised me. I would expect this to be a reasonably popular pairing. So I've now gone and created yet another LJ comm. It's not just for slash; I also welcome stories of Harry and Neville's friendship, or stories which feature both of them prominently. Come join [livejournal.com profile] prophesy_boys.

Title: Linked
Rating: K+
Word Count: ~1700
Genre: Drama, Light Slash
Pairing: Harry/Neville
Synopsis: In the days following the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Harry can't sleep. He decides to talk to the one person who might understand.
Note: I don't write trio-generation fic very often, and I never write trio-generation slash. But I've been rereading OotP, and this tiny, fluffy bunny would not leave me alone tonight. Why is there no Harry/Neville comm on LJ?

Ever since that horrible night the previous week, and the dawn revelations in Dumbledore's office, Harry had been very aware of Neville. Watching his movements, listening to his words, noticing quirks of his personality he had never seen before. Neville, who might so easily have had Harry's life, had it not been for some unfathomable notion of Voldemort's that Harry posed the greater threat.

Dear God! What am I writing? I should not be doing this. It's going to be part funny and part dumb. I don't know if it will fit with the drama of the rest of the series. I said at one point I had written James and Lily's deaths from everyone's POV but Harry's. Well, guess what....
