So last fall, I had a week of vacation. Every night, [ profile] ihatefastcars and I stayed up until all hours talking about tons and tons of fic we wanted to write. From those marathon sessions, a HP AU was born. This AU is convoluted and intense and involves just about every HP character you can think of and this is the first completed story.

The Draco/Terence pairing is not one that ends up OTP in the AU; this is more of a before-the-story type story. In our little world, after the War That Wasn't, the Malfoy family money was seized by the Ministry, but because of some arcane Wizarding rule, the property wasn't. On the outskirts of one of the wild gardens, Draco discovers a strange plant with ... interesting affects. In order to support himself and keep up the Manor, Draco begins selling said plant (that's what makes everyone glittery).

That being said...

Fic: Sonnet XXIX, Percy/Oliver, R

This story was originally written for the now-defunct Percy/Oliver Fic Carnival. It was finished over a year ago, but I just discovered the Carnival went belly up, so I thought I'd post it finally.

The scenario I was given was this: Wizard's are real, ghosts,witches, monsters... Why not aliens? Aliens attack Hogwarts!

Disclaimer: Not mine. Never will be.

Ranting, AU's, etc

The following nerdish ranting is brought to you by the letter A, the number 87, and the Percy/Oliver Fic Carnival.

Despite the best efforts of Barnes & Noble, 'cool' kids, and Hollywood, there actually is a marked difference between science fiction and fantasy. Science fiction is all about science; it's the future and robots and dystopic regimes. Fantasy is, well, fantasy. It's all fairies and elves and vaguely mediaeval settings. And, frankly, never the twain shall meet.

What brought this on? you might ask. Well, I signed up to take part in the P/O Fic Carnival (the peanut gallery can now shut the hell up) and the scenario I was given is that aliens have attacked Hogwarts.

The fuck?

The whole logic behind the scenario is, I swear to god, 'magic and wizards and dragons exists, why not aliens?' Does no one a) understand the break between SF and fantasy and b) have any respect for basic logic structures?

Anyway, so now I have to somehow figure out how to work aliens into the Potterverse. I guess all those years watching The X-Files won't be wasted now.


I've been pondering the CSI AU Caroline tossed at me last night (Nick doesn't leave the force, but does leave Texas. Greg stays in San Francisco. They meet). I keep getting flashes of scenes, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to do something with it, but I need more character background before I can begin. Are there any good sites with that info?

songfic still sucks...

but if I a) were going to write songfic and b) felt emotionally ready to deal with the fallout from OotP, I might do it up something like this: )

oh god

OotP spoilers )

I've been reading for just under 8 hours. Now I must get some sleep.

T-minus six hours and counting!

Even though I already have the vouchers in my hand for OotP, it seems a little unreal. I can't even fathom the number of copies that are going to be sold this weekend.


i'm such a big nerd

but at least all my friends are as well.

Last night, in honor of the impending release of OotP, we decided we needed to make t-shirts proclaiming our 'ship preference.

We are now the crew of the HMS Remus/Sirius, Trafalgar class submarine. Also, we have the design for the One True Way shirt ready to go, and [ profile] lallybroch has designed various options for adult HP panties.

Like I said nerds.
