So my last iPod, purchased in early 2006, was named Sirius. Unfortunately, it died about eight months ago, and I have been without portable music since that time. I'd like to get an iPod Touch with all the bells and whistles, but I just cannot afford that right now. So as a sort of interim measure, this week I got myself a refurbished green Nano. So, smaller than the last one, and green. And what did I name it? Why, "Regulus" of course!

It will be so nice to have my music in my truck again. I've loaded my "best of the 70's", "best of the 80's", Leonard Cohen, Queen, Jason Webley, Pete Seeger, and Great Big Sea playlists. I am ready to go!

This song is killing me and is clearly about Remus... )

I finally got around to putting up my Sectus photos. There's a gallery here. [livejournal.com profile] sermoa, there's one of you and me as well!

I also wanted to share with y'all a picture I took of St Rule's (aka St Regulus) Tower in St Andrews, Scotland:

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!

This list is by no means complete or comprehensive. It is based on my first reading of the book and notes that I took quickly during a long stretch of no sleep and no food. I will be taking part in a more thorough chapter-by-chapter analysis on [livejournal.com profile] deathly_cntdwn starting August 1.

*points at icon* That there is my mental image of both Regulus Black (Harry Potter) and Renly Baratheon (A Song of Ice and Fire). They are both young, pretty, mysteriously dead and *highly* slashable. And it took me until this very moment to realise that both characters have the same initials. So...Renly Baratheon *is* RAB!

Now that's a thought.... )

I've just gone through almost all my stories (though not Survivor's Guilt yet) and fixed them according to the official canon timeline.

1) Marauder birthdates: I'd been operating off the idea that the Marauders were born in 1959/60 rather than 1958/59, which is more likely correct. You wouldn't think it would make such a difference, but it does. If the Marauders finished school in 1977 rather than 1978, that's four years instead of three between Hogwarts and the fall of Voldemort. A lot can happen in a year. But I think I've fixed most of those issues.

2) Regulus's dates: The posting of the official Black Family Tree on the HP Lexicon has given me no end of trouble. It gives firm birth and death dates for Regulus which were in slight conflict with the dates I had given him in my Diaries of Regulus Black story. The biggest problems with this were, a) I can't actually change the dates on the scanned images of the diaries, and b) I had to move the entry mentioning the death of Regulus's father by more than a year to bring it in line with his dates on the tree.

3) Bye-Bye Bellatrix: I originally had Bellatrix Lestrange in the same year as the Marauders, and even dating Peter for a while. This (once again according the the official family tree) doesn't work. Bellatrix was apparently born in 1951, which means she would have left Hogwarts before the Marauders ever got there. Hence, I've had to bring in a stand-in to fill the role. Meet Madeleine Yaxley, my new Slytherin OC. She's here to seduce Peter and lead him astray.

If you see anything I've missed, please let me know!

Earlier this year, someone did some lovely Snape fan art for me based on my short, Paper-Thin Hotel. I failed to download a copy of it, and now I can't find it! Does anyone remember this, or know who might have done it? I will be very sad if I cannot find it.

Edit: Or I could just, y'know, check my email for keyword "Snape" and find it myself in under five minutes. Thank you again for these lovely pieces, [livejournal.com profile] shishio!

Right. I'm back from the dig and should be online somewhat more regularly from here on. Problem? I don't have a way to hook my laptop up to the net here, which means that all the writing/editing I have been doing this summer has no way to get from me to you, unless I want to spend my dwindling hoard of money on CD-ROMs. So I will keep working on getting connected and keep working on the stories as well. Mostly at the moment, I am editing to bring things in line with new canon where I can, and just to give them a general brush-up as well.

I'm starting my summer adventures tonight at 3:00 AM with a drive down to Logan Airport. I'm sorry I haven't had time to post anything else lately, especially Padfoot's Tale and The Power of Two, but I will keep trying. I should be online and with much more time to write between now and the 20th, but then I will probably not have any net access at all for the summer. Do not despair! I will keep writing, and I will have my lovely boy [livejournal.com profile] chiv post here for me. Maybe I can actually make some progress at last. Have a lovely summer, everyone!

Incidentally, if anyone is in England between June 21 and August 28, you should come to Bamburgh castle and say hello. I'll be the one with the long purple hair, happily digging up skellies and playing with kids.

On an entirely unrelated note, I just realised that since I started this journal after the PoA movie came out, I've never introduced y'all to the man who was my first choice for the role of Sirius Black. This is Richard E Grant. 'Course, Gary Oldman was my second choice, so I am not complaining!

And this is Regulus Black:

Well, this is all of it! I hope you enjoyed reading it half as much as I enjoyed writing it. Poor little Regulus. My heart breaks for him. I didn't mean for it to play out quite like this, but sometimes the characters will take over and tell their own story, and there's not much I can do about it.

Part One: 1971
Part Two: 1973
Part Three: 1976
Part Four: 1977
Part Five: 1978

Part five of six! Only one more to go. This little romance ended up being a lot sweeter than I intended.

Part three of six. In which 14 year old Regulus learns something unexpected about his brother, and has some new responsibilities placed upon him. PG-13 for language. I am trying really hard to pace myself with these, but I have them all done and I really, really want to show them to people!

I finished hand writing everything at work today. I bet you never thought your substitute teachers were up to this sort of thing when you were in middle school.... Anyway, I've really been enjoying this little project and I am really pleased with the results. I hope you are too. Those are meant to be tearstains on the second one, but the scanner made the colour go all wonky.

For the sake of this fic I got chocolate on my scanner. Took bloody ages writing with my left hand as well. I hope it's worth it....
