I've created a Dreamwidth account and imported my LJ there, as a backup. If you have an account, too, please friend me there! :-)
I also had an Insanejournal account, but it looks like it was purged (I guess because I hadn't logged in in two years). I tried to submit a support form about it, but I was given an error repeatedly, and I don't know how else to contact them.
I've been replying to old comments recently, and I've finally caught up with everything in my inbox! I'm still replying to previous fest comments, so if you receive a reply to an ancient comment you left me, that's what's up.
Anyway. Here, have a bit of Harry/Draco. :-)

They have all been brilliant, every single one, week after week! And it's just getting harder and harder to pick a favorite. The first week I had one favorite among favorites, the second week I had two favorites among favorites, and this week I had three!!!
The sad thing is that my favorites were eliminated the first two weeks in a row. But this week all three of my very favorites were safe, so I'm glad about that! But HONESTLY, the competition is fierce and it's nearly impossible to pick.
*FLAIL* ALL GLOMPFEST PROMPTS WERE CLAIMED!!!
That makes me so happy. I didn't claim a prompt this year because I'm trying to keep my fest participation light, but I'm thrilled for all of the recipients and participants.
So this is a thousand thank yous to all for a fantastic year, and here's to many more!

I'M SO EXCITED!!! I've been bubbly and bouncy and smiling since 11:20 PM last night.
Well, when am I not happy, but you get the idea. Making a gift for someone is the most fun I have, ever. And if it's secret and anonymous and your giftee is kept merrily wondering who's given it to them? I think, with the added mystique, the magic and cheer is all the more. Fingers are crossed I make the lottery!!!
Many thanks to roma_fics because she remebered a piece she thought was great, and oh, wow, do I agree. It features Harry and Draco, amongst several other characters, in a trench.
The drawing is intense and cool and very well done. It's the kind of thing I was looking and hoping for. And what really delighted me about the piece is that it's a magical AU. I think it's so special.
But sadly this is the only thing that came up. I'm surprised this is the case, especially since the Harry Potter series had a first Wizarding War and lead up to the second Wizarding war. It seems like it would have been done extensively and become almost a cliché.
Why hasn't it been done? This is an unmarked territory for Harry and Draco. I'm craving more stories and art like this, and I'm inspired to add to it. I think I have my prompt idea for my hd_holidays sign-up! Distress and romance during a wartime fall and winter - my heart flutters just thinking about it! :-D

Notes: This is part of a bigger project I'm working on. The title and drawing's quote don't have anything to do with said project, though. :)

Why I like this: I miss longer stories in the weeks between fests. This community encourages length, gives a prime location to post your story for an audience looking forward to that aspect specifically, and promises a new story or a rec of an older story each weekend. Plus, it includes our artists - we have the opportunity to illustrate the new stories. Length is almost like a genre in this case; instead of, say, creature fic, it's a meaty fic. I think it's a gap that is in sore need of being filled, and this is such a wonderful way to do it!
from June 5 to July 31, 2010

Let's celebrate Harry and Draco's 30th birthdays at hd_birthdaybash!
Why I like this: A community to gather together all of the scattered about Harry and Draco birthday presents for both boys is just what we needed. Keep track of all their goodies! Count gifts! Who receives more, Harry or Draco? They may love each other, but I think they'll always be rather competitive! ;) I adore the added excitement I think this Bash will bring to H & D's birthdays during the summer months.
Rating: R (sexy, NWS!)
Artist's Notes: For hd_holidays 2009, recipient alaana_fair , original entry here. Thanks to bryoneybrynn, marguerite_26 and stellamoon. A close-up of Draco's ring is included, and Harry wears its match (if there was any doubt!). :)
( In the Dusk of Early Winter (R) )
I had a wonderful, relaxing birthday, in real life and here on live journal.
Thank you all for making it so special and a lot of fun!
( Thank you!! )
Yesterday I had all four of my wisdom teeth surgically removed. I'm always good with this sort of thing (no anxiety at all), and it went really well. I'm not very sore today, and despite being quite swollen and not looking like myself, I feel fine and I'm happy.
I have a few more posts to make over the next couple of days:
A sketch, a poll, a search for books and a recipe for chocolate cake! :)
