It’s been a while since I’ve blogged or done anything related to HP fanfic, but it was still something of a shock to see the date of my last post and realize that I’ve been away from this blog for almost two years.
I’m hoping that will change in the near future, and to get things rolling, I’ve posted a new Minerva story, “Discovery,” which I wrote for the last, and final, Minerva Fest this autumn. You can read it, and other wonderful Minerva-centric fics, over at Minerva Fest on LiveJournal, but I’ve also posted it to An Archive of Our Own and The Petulant Poetess, and will be posting to fanfiction.net, so you have your choice of places to read it.
Summary: When young Minerva gets herself into a fix in her Animagus guise, she learns a few good lessons. Not Pottermore compliant. Please note that this story presumes an earlier birth year for Minerva (approximately 1924), making her a contemporary of Tom Riddle. Written for Minerva Fest 2015.
Length: approx. 3500 words
Speaking of the Petulant Poetess archive, the last fic I wrote and posted before my hiatus, “Comfort and Joy,” is being featured this month during their celebration of the archive’s tenth anniversary. Congratulations to TPP, and thanks for providing a place for reading and posting HP fanfic for so many years! And, of course, thank you for featuring “Comfort and Joy” in your December 2015 “Lumos!”
I’m really happy to hear from you again, and am glad that your HP fanfic muse is coming back. I really loved Discovery, and I’m looking forward to reading more of your fanfic in the future. 🙂
Congratulations on being featured on TPP – “Comfort and Joy” was a great piece and fully deserved the honor.
Thank you! It’s so good to see your name! It’s like seeing a familiar face after being away from home for a long time. 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed Discovery!
Wonderful to see you back here! 🙂
Also from me congratulations on the TPP feature for ‘Comfort and Joy’.
I loved that story as well as I loved ‘Discovery’, different as they are.
Hopefully you have many more fics for us ‘in store’! 🙂
Hi! I’m glad to be back — sort-of-back! I’ve missed fanficdom, and “mmadfanning,” but life can sometimes throw multiple spanners in the works.
I do hope to have more fics, and updates to my WiPs, soon. In fact, I’ve got the one I wrote for this Christmas’s Hoggywarty party already posted to AO3 and TPP. I still need to upload Discover to ffnet, but hope to do so soon.
Yay! Hope you are well and that more fic surprises will be on offer. I for one have missed Johannes and Siofre something terrible. 🙂
I’ve missed them, too!
I have just posted my little Christmas fic to AO3 and TPP, so you may enjoy that until more Johannes and Siofre come along!
Good to see you!
