Not wanting to be home for the one month anniversary of my husband's death, I took a trip with my daughter. I got back on Sunday night and have spent the last couple of days trying to catch up on real life stuff as well as e-mails and comments.
reveals are up. I received the amazing fic The Boy Who Only Lived Twice
which was written by lettered
I wrote A Devotion to Others
and I am so very relieved and pleased that she liked it. My betas for this fic were the incredibly thorough and patient and hard-working and wonderfully sweet arineat
. The help I received from my betas was immense and I felt fairly comfortable about submitting this story. This is a big deal, as I'm usually quite anxious, and worry so much about errors and such.
Um...as for the bonus poem and illustration at the bottom of the story? Yeah, I did that myself. *hides face in embarrassment* I thought I'd just try to do a drawing that looks similar to the drawing Draco did in the third movie but... but Draco's drawing was much more detailed than I remembered. Why did I remember it as being stick-figurish? And Draco actually has a heck of a lot of detail in the drawing. Clearly, it wasn't simply something he jotted down in a few seconds. The boy spent some time drawing that thing. And then I had all sorts of problems trying to combine the various pictures and creating a gif (possibly because I have no idea how those programs are supposed to work.) Anyway, my admiration for fandom's artists, which was already high, shot up even higher.
