Welcome to Subtextual Healing!

Severus Snape is my little black dress of the Harry Potter fandom; I'm also an unrepentant pairing (and genre) whore—I like gen, too! With the exception of Getting Severus Married, my fic is publicly posted at the Archive of Our Own.

Bespoke (PG; Harry/Draco; 200 words)

Summary: Draco had never seen a more beautiful piece of knitwear.

Albus' spelling

Albus' spelling has improved to the point that Shog and I now ask each other, "Is it time to take the sphere to the enclosure?" when we want to go to the dog park. I can't wait to spell that out . . . . ;)
There's so much to see that I'm going again!
OMG, OMG, OMG!

Go see it, go see it, go see it!

*glee*
Now here's a very NSFW application for giant googly eyes at which I stared an awfully long time. *snorts; uses near-appropriate icon*

Monthly Wrap-Up: October + snapecase

I posted one fic in October; it's a Snarry with a Snermione past:

The Gay Divorcé (PG; Snarry; 1000 words): The women in Severus' life accept his latest obsession.

I walked five miles in one go! *\o/*

Five miles in one go!

That was my morning. I hope to make it my afternoon evening. *hopes* As well, I am at the top of my team's StepItUpUSA leader board! That won't last long because the top walkers are quite serious (and you can see how long it takes me to do five miles), but yay! I wanted to get to the top at least once, and I did it! *dances*
. . . and a profoundly (amusing and) humbling punch line (WS comic).

Walking with Giants did a special "Haunting with Giants" episode for mini-caramel apples!




And now, for a disembodied leg cake! It was interesting to see the cake come together, but I warn you that it's gross upon completion and eating.

Some of my neighbors have been decorated for Halloween since September. We're not yet decorated, and we're beginning to get looks. *meeps*

This morning, I woke up late and didn't have time for breakfast before heading out to a meeting, so when I returned, I made a quick, vegan pea soup and some artichoke & onion cornbread for lunch. Yum! While I ate, I spend some time at Bored Panda and saw:

I love the Underworld and Resident Evil franchises so much, I squeed aloud when I watched these previews.





*flails*

In other news, the house is almost ready for winter. Yay, yard man!

Today is ending better than it began, but I have to walk off my mac and cheese dinner before bed. :P

Woo, hoo! (ETA)

snapecase has two positions open in Category Three (Snape from 21- to 30-years-old), and two positions one position open in Category Five (Snape from 41- to 50-years-old {and beyond}). As well, every category can take two alternates—but OMG, yay! It was a last-minute decision to hold the fest again, and it looks as though it's going to be splendidly full! I've already received three entries, too! *dances*

Sign-ups are ongoing until we fill all our age-range category needs!

An LJ trick for easier reading

If you ever find it difficult to read someone's journal because of their layout, type "?style=mine" (omit the quotation marks) after their URL, and you'll be able to read the journal in your own style. If you click on a link, you'll have to do it again, but sometimes, it's necessary.

This post brought to you by my own difficulties this morning. White text on a clear background featuring a busy, glittering image isn't readable.

People ran a tortoise-hare race!

Guess who won? (WS)

My icon notwithstanding, it wasn't the bun. :P
