prunesquallormd: (Effy - Lost in thought)
Yeah, not really the most successful week.
On Wednesday I conducted a fairly effective experiment to demonstrate the fact that 2 objects can't occupy the same space at the same time. The objects were car shaped. It was annoying. (It was a queue on the motorway, I was going maybe 3 miles an hour. Virtually no damage and he was very nice about it but it was still really stupid).

I was convinced I had a Samaritans overnight tonight so I spent the evening trying to sleep and went in for 10pm, only to discover it's next Friday. Ach.

On the plus side, Call of Cthulhu was fun last night. It's remarkable how every player or group ever will completely ignore the blatantly sign-poster plot points and go off on wild tangents. It's like, it's a printed handout. Why would someone going to the trouble of producing a handout if the information on it wasn't directly relevant to the story? What the hell is wrong with you?!
Still, the ad libing is always fun. I really must remember to make proper notes so I don't completely forget the random ad-hoc characters and extra leads.
Hopefully next session will see them getting back on track a bit. This is only supposed to be an intro, after all. I really don't want it to take weeks.

A very belated Happy Canada Day and a slightly less belated Happy Independence Day to everyone across the pond. I hope it was lovely :)

Every so often I run across some rather fabulous fanvids. This is one.
(Is it necessary to warn for spoilers in Harry Potter vids at this stage? If it is, then this is totally spoilery :)).

God, so busy. And obviously today I managed to fritter away most of today being all knackered and needing recover from the rest of the week. Annoying! (Also annoying: a boiler that only works about 50% of the time, and so I have to boil water to wash the other 50%. Twice, I've had someone to look at it, but because the fault is intermittent, it's kind of hard to track down. If it carries on, he'll have to start replacing the expensive bits. Boo).

The Skins Big Bang seems to be a massive success, and I'm very much enjoying my beta-ing duties. I occasionally think I've bitten off a little more than I can chew, but hey, I like doing it, so (it's like: I have actual permission to be pedantic at people, and they can't complain. How good is that? :p ).
And talking of the Skins BB, our glorious leader (AKA [ profile] shan_3414 :)) made this a few days ago, and god, it's so lovely. It makes all kinds of nostalgic. Just beautiful.

prunesquallormd: (Katie S4 - LOVE)
Well, then. Insert random stuff here, I suppose.

Whitby was all sorts of fun, and the company was fab, and mostly good humoured. I may have drunk rather more gin (and whisky for that matter) than is technically healthy, and I definitely ate more cheese and fudge than my nominally vegan diet would suggest (I miss cheese ok? It's been over a decade, and I've never stopped missing it, and they don't make a decent non-dairy cheese. Trust me, I've looked).

A few days ago, [ profile] blurubberband55 posted a Katie Fitch vid that [ profile] crackfoxx made for her (the prompt was "Katie Fitch is awesome at life" to the tune of "I'm too sexy"). It may actually be the best thing ever, and it's one of the things things I've seen in the last few days that's brought home to me the total reversal of my opinion on Katie. I loathed her utterly when I first saw season 3, and for months afterwards. Now though? I just want to hug her. I love her so much. This vid may give you a clue as to why.

Cut for teh rambly )

(Part 2 of Giving Up These Kisses)
Sequel to Blue in Green

Summary: On the anniversary of Fred Weasley's death, Ginny visits her brother's grave.
Word count: 3200
Warnings: Fluff!
I'd intended for this to be porn and right until the last few paragraphs that intention remained intact. There's clearly something inside me that makes me balk at that though; or maybe it's because good porn is very hard to write and I'm still a little too nervous to try. Either way, I'm rather disappointed to report that this is basically a smut-free zone. Sorry. Instead it hits my default mode, which is rather overwrought, slightly angsty fluff.

Disclaimer: Obviously all the characters and pretty much everything else belong to JK Rowling. This is just for fun!

The opening quotation is from a poem by Mervyn Peake

Unbetad; all mistakes are mine.

To live at all is miracle enough. )
