Just Another Work Story Where Everybody Dies  
No, no, I'm joking. Seriously. The thought may come to mind, but it wouldn't be worth it. I wouldn't get a new computer if I was sitting in jail. Never work retail in a recession. Period. *gusty sigh*

Other than wanting to find a way to not work as hard as I always do and get paid as much as the rest of the crew, several things are brewing over here at Chez Joos-Roy...
  • Dustin the Freak Beagle is finally starting to settle in. Better yet, he's sleeping through the night, thanks to some well-placed herbal setitives at the end of the night. I do love the boy, but I worry about Kallie and how miserable she looks lately. It's hard being a furry-mommy of four when all of the girls seem to feel slighted. :( Still, he's shaping up to be a pretty good boy. *crosses fingers*
  • januaried and I have finally started to get enough time together again to start planning stuff over at reeveverse, which I've felt awful about for a while now. I had no intentions of nearly abandoning it and have had plans to spruce the place up for a bit now, but RL is giving my fandom and sleep life a good, hard beating. That said, expect to see some updates soon. Here's hoping that we still have a few viewers out there.
  • Seeing as how we're in the thick of planning the action for the next arc of Heirs, I'll be be writing alone for the current 12days_of_clois challenge. It's been quite some time (about a year and a half) since I did a piece alone and I'm more than a little nervous about it. Please God, don't let me look like an idiot. *headdesk*
  • There are all sorts of evil plots afoot for the duration of Heirs, some of which were just decided very recently. There's stuff I'd love to point out and spoil a little bit of, but it would ruin the surprise. Seeing as how I've been researching a good portion of the DCU in the last few months and just broke down and bought the HUMONGOUS DK DCU Encylopedia, I certainly hope that we can make this as encouragingly entertaining as possible. And I promise you, here and now, that the ending of this story will be worth what they'll go through.
  • Just a bit more than a week until we see babettew54! Sweetheart, we'll have to send emails and figure out how we want to arrange things. I do know that I'll be going to see someone about my hair before we meet up. Poor Caroline was stuck meeting us after a good portion of the day in the car and I know I looked awful. :( Talk about wanting to take back a first impression! *facepalm* As you can tell, we're really excited! Can't wait to see you!
  • SVEvenstar has been uploading some extremely nice H/Hr videos lately. It's lovely to see her coming back to her original 'ship. Posting this mostly for sean_montgomery , but the video can make a very good case for their close friendship. It should still be H/G and R/Hr-friendly.

I know, I was thinking about that icon! XD

... *mutters* I still think that the rock idea was better than the epilogue. :P

*is gleeful to know that she's not the only black sheep*

I can see it if I turn my head to the side and squint. And I know that you guys are legion. I also could see him with Ginny, but I kinda prefer her with Neville.

Match-making in the HP World. A brilliant way to spend a day. :D
Rae: HP. Hermione.autumnrae89 on July 23rd, 2009 12:23 am (UTC)

I sadly think I'll never be a good sheep.

I agree about D/G, I don't mind it but it's not my favourite thing in the world. I would ship H/Hr (I do, a tiny, small, insignificant bit when I don't agree ith Draco) but I don't think Harry challenges Hermione. Feel free to rec me fic otherwise; I'm on the hunt as it is. I like the idea of G/N, but it sounds a bit of a challenge as they both seem to bumble a bit.

Okay, here's my question, who is Ron with? I never match him with anyone. I just kinda forget about him.
Lois: HP: H/Hr Sanctuarykalalanekent on July 23rd, 2009 12:33 am (UTC)
The biggest thing about my H/Hr? As far as my plot bunny's concerned? They all marry the expected (H/G, R/Hr), but nothing after DH goes as expected and they break up. It's another situation like the adventures in the canon HP series that get Ginny and Neville together. It would take forever to explain my story behind it, but yeah.

(Well, here's a bit: Ginny wants kids and a normal life after DH and Harry keeps trying, but he can't make himself stop being an Auror; Ron's a Qudditch star and Hermione is working for Hogwarts as a teacher, not wanting any part of the fame)

As for Ron, it's simple and sure to make life interesting: Luna.
Rae: HP. D/Hr 2.autumnrae89 on July 23rd, 2009 12:44 am (UTC)
Mmm. Sounds interesting. I like the Ron/Luna part.

In my world, Hermione breaks up with Ron before they even get married and spends at least 3 years denying Draco before they have hot, hot angry hate sex which then leads to emotional development and OTP. :D

I'd really love to write up my plans for the bunneh, but I'll never get to write it.

I will say that Harry and Hermione start to avoid each other and family functions for a few years after they marry Ron and Ginny. Hermione mostly because she had regrets now about the choice she made. In my world, they really did have a moment while they were in the forest where it could have gone one way or another for her. She and Harry have had a hard time facing each other ever since. As it is, they finally have to face each other when he has to go to her for some information. And Hermione goes dragged along with him on his adventure.

It also takes them a while to tumble into bed.

You should write an outline at least. I'd love to see where you'd take it, even if you don't actually get to take it there. A lot of my problem in believing in H/Hr is the writers I've seen write it don't treat the characters well. They make them too OOC, sacrificing either Hermione's or Harry's personality/intergity to get them where they need them to go. I hate it and I won't stand for it or read it.

This is the Table of Contents for my favourite Dramione fic ever, by inadaze22/ It's post-DH, very angsty and somewhat dark. (mentions of rape; not Hermione and character/OC death) If you get a chance to look it over (It's very long 400k), this is how I'd like my ship to progress. Even though Draco and Hermione never physically get it together in the story, they are together in every other way. ZOMG, seriously, I feel for this fic what I feel for our secret OTP. I just want it so bad.

Posting this with the only HP icon I have because I saw HBP today and I totally get where you're coming from with the H/Hr- they just had so much chemistry together and while Bonnie and Dan tried, I didn't feel it like I did for the books. Although, I'm not sure I ship them quite yet- I kinda love their friendship- I also have this desperate desire to find a story somewhere that has a guy and a girl in a great friendship where they don't end up together- I really want to know I'm not he only one who thinks guys and girls can be good friends without sharing a bed.

Whoa, ramble much? :P And OMG so jealous you get to meet up with LJ friends irl. WHY MUST MY TINY COUNTRY BE SO ISOLATED!?! WHY!?!?

We're doing the final polish on the chapter today and plan to have it up before too late on Saturday. I really, really hope everyone will be able to enjoy what we have planned. It's not all happy (like it has been so far XD), but the ending is just awesome.
