Updated List & Links Page

I have updated the page with the list and links to all my fics on various sites. I hadn’t touched it since late 2013, so it’s nice to have that done. I will update the various sub-lists (the topical ones) soon, as well.

Look for a new chapter of A Long Vernal Season soon! If you can’t remember the last few chapters and where Severus and Poppy are, no worries — I reread the last several chapters recently myself to get back into the groove of the story.

A Long Vernal Season

Almost two years …

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.

“Discovery”

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.

Rated PG.
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!”

How to Starve a Troll. (From WordPress.com’s “Daily Post.”) Good advice here. I only had one troll on this blog, ever, and she/he followed me from another site. However, I’ve encountered trolls elsewhere, and have seen them in action on … Continue reading

Hottest Fic Clicks & other miscellanea

Stan ShunpikeDo you ever glance at the “Hottest Clicks” for this site? They’re usually pretty opaque — if they lead to a page on the Petulant Poetess or An Archive of Our Own, for example, you’ll see the domain, but the individual page will just be identified by numbers.

To help you decipher these links, here are the most popular fic clicks for the past 90 days on the Petulant Poetess, An Archive of Our Own, and fanfiction.net. Continue reading
