My Journal

FYI, I'm generally one of those lurkers who read stories, get lots of enjoyment out of them and then never comment.  I'm trying to get out of that habit.  :)

Anyway, I do write (sometimes, but I'm also in school full time with a work-study job so it's pretty irregular).  I'm a  Harry Potter fangirl, of the H/D variety.  Also AS/S.  If you don't know what those stand for you probably shouldn't be here!  *grins*

I do always have WsIP, though.  But I don't like reading something that the author may or may not abandon, so I won't post anything until I'm done so that readers won't be disappointed at a lack of updates.

You need to read this now

As many of you know, I'm sure,
Goodreads is currently posting stories for their event "Love Is Always Write." If you aren't following it, please check it out. There are some great stories up now, but one in particular that I just had to rec.

I hope at least some of you are familiar with Kaje Harper. If not, hie thee hence and read Life Lessons.

Her LiAW story (though at over 60,000 words, I think it qualifies as a novella) is called Into Deep Waters. Not only is it a fantastic read on its own, but seemed particularly poignant to read it just before Memorial Day. It's a love story, a life story, between two WWII Navy sailors. Here's the prompt/summary:

We met onboard, both of us so very young - still in our teens - but we were old enough to serve our country. And against all odds, and the many risks involved, we fell in love and have managed to stay together for the last 60 years. Now, as our time together inevitably gets shorter and shorter, I can’t wait any longer for the right to finally marry the man I’ve loved all these years.

I am quite pleased...

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Bill Weasley

Your perfect HP man is Bill Weasley.

You like guys who are cool. And not cool in that fake, dicky way, but actually cool. He's so cool that they couldn't find any actor to adequately portray him, so they decided to just leave him out of the movies rather than risk not doing justice to his coolness. He's like the Chuck Norris of Harry Potter: plain freaking awesome. When Voldemort says "You-Know-Who", he's talking about Bill Weasley.
