So like, in August 2005, post-HBP, I had this Hugfic challenge thing where I challenged people to write gen H/D preslash sorta stuff (where Harry hugs Draco) without shmoop or sap. And lo! And behold! The WONDER AND GLORY:

Amalin (otherwise known as [livejournal.com profile] monochromal, the awesomelicious writer behind 'Transformation'), wrote a WHOLE NOVELLA for me!! I WIN AT LIFE!!1 GO READ IT NOW, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE AND DH HAS PERMANENTLY FRIED THOSE DELICATE POST-HBP SYNAPSES :O

Inexpert and Unexpected Things

♥♥♥


    And also! Watch this space for my half of the bargain (also maybe only a quarter as longass but still post-HBP gen!H/D-ish), sometime tomorrow, before I leave to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] addictedkitten & pick up DH, and fandom changes 4evah. D: D:

YOU EVEN REMEMBERED MY NAME ANXIETY LSDKJS ILU OKAY.

I do not know why you and Aja keep reccing me without reading the fics first, though, because you both having that much confidence in me makes me feel nervous and unworthy!

You know, I just posted this immediately before Deathly Hallows. I posted Transformation just before HBP. I think the last fic I posted before OotP was Still Life. Those are like, the only real H/D fics I've written that I still feel okay about existing, too.

I. am. so. tired.

P.S. There's an in-joke in there just for you, you'll find it when you find it ♥.

Heheh <3. I could psychically sense how awesome your writing is, and it's like, an amazing ability of mine so don't knock it okay D:

I always start things right after canon, it seems, and finish them (if I finish them) way after it's too late. Here's to breaking that pattern at least once. (y)

I AM SO TIRED I CAUGHT MYSELF READING SLYTHERLYNX'S META INSTEAD OF WRITING D: BAD ME D:

P.S. Did nobody else ever write a hugfic, after all that commotion on your post? Clearly we are awesome.

Indeed, no one did. :O

That is because they knew we would, and they sensibly decided to avoid the massive competition. *nodnod*

*is tired and so clearly delirious*

Do you know, in the past two weeks I have been more active in fandom than I have been for the past four years.

I bring my computer to work and you aren't around! ARE YOU SLEEPING?

Date: 2007-07-20 05:19 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] amalin.livejournal.com
Because I'm not sleeping from now until Saturday at 8 AM most probably. This is crazy. Harry Potter Week is going to kill me faster than three years of midterms and finals.

Three hundred comments from you in the past two weeks have made me needy.

Also, I feel justified in spamming this post because it is for me :>

WHERE IS YOUR FIC :( ARE YOU NOT POSTING IT BEFORE DH ANYMORE :(

From: [identity profile] yourpoison.livejournal.com
At this point even if I did post it right now, it wouldn't be before DH and also you'd be literally the only one to read it and then there's editing (not even started on, but I printed it out and scribbled on it) and omg it'll be like 40 pages at the end, at -least-, and I know it's not 150 but that's around what my Sirius+Harry longass thing is >___> heheh and it keeps growing plot. I wish it'd stop doing that :>

P.S. See you at 4 AM my time! I'll be here! I'll be with you whatever happens!
