5 Things Meme

tagged by [personal profile] alisanne, I have a surprising hard time writing things like this.

5 things you’ll find in my bag pockets: Wallet, keys, train ticket, mp3 loaded with stephen fry reading Hp and a years worth of tisues
5 things you’ll find in my bedroom: books, dvds, games, chocolate and somewhere hidden out of the way, glasses that should be on my face.
5 2 things I’ve always wanted to do: Be more ambitious! Visit Japan maybe?
5 things that make me happy: Lying in, peace and quiet, a good book, chocolate, talking to friends (rl and fandom)
5 things I’m currently into: Harry Potter, Honorverse prequels, Aubrey-Maturin, Infamous video game and Atop The Fourth Wall comic book review videos.
5 things on my to-do list: new walking boots and waterproof trousers. (done today!) Get signed up to the local doctors, write for fests, eat less, exercise more. (perpetually put off but on there in theory)

For real though: super unambitious.

In Drafts

Checked my yahoo webmails drafts today while using another draft to hold my attempts at smutty-calus sign up and found this: 

Harry’s eyes snapped open. His gaze flicked to his alarm clock. His hand scrambled for his glasses. He should have been at work five minutes ago. Harry’s heart hammered, ten years and he’d never been late. Not ever.

From July. What da heck was I
 writing?

 Trying to fill in my Smutty Claus form and coming up blank.

Difficult to know what to ask for. Some times I wonder if this is it.

Pointers

Just a few thing that are happening! 
  • Last chance to prompt at [livejournal.com profile] interhouse_fest 
  • Claiming's opened at [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest  (I may have already claimed something there)
  • Promptings opened at [livejournal.com profile] mini_fest (seems to have started slowly maybe it  will pick up over the weekend I remember it being quite popular)
  • [community profile] weasleyjumpers  is also prompting now! So if you have any Weasley centric prompts that could be written in 500-3000 words drop them there.

Further in the future:
  • [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus  sign ups on sept 1st
  • [insanejournal.com profile] bbtp_challenge : Bring Back the Porn on sept 1st. Post new porn! An excellent excuse to write smut.

Last chance

To prompt at [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest  as prompting closes today.

[livejournal.com profile] interhouse_fest  is also prompting and probably needs more love.

Extra Pimp

Since my last pimp [livejournal.com profile] interhouse_fest has announced that it'll be running as well this year! So many fest, so little time.

-
I want to re-pimp [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest though and their lovely banner.


Art by atalienart, Banner by [personal profile] capitu


So pretty and Het. There's been lots of lovely prompts and great variety at the prompt post so far.

-

My problem is that a lot of the ideas I have at the moment, I want to hoard to put in my own fics. But I did find my prompts for last year. Would it be bad fest-ettiquette to re-use them? The ones that weren't claimed last time I mean.

Say it with me...

How is it August already? Where has the year gone? Why haven't I written more? Why does time move inexorably forward constantly? Why?

Some stuff coming up I'm interested in:
Anything else I'm missing? There's also my [community profile] firewhiskeyfic to translate and repost at somepoint. (I got 1/3 of the best prompt use!)

My shopping list

[community profile] firewhiskeyfic  is running today. With some Harry-centric prompts.

This necessitated a trip to the supermarket. My purchases: 330ml of Captain Morgan's. 2 litres of  Pepsi Max Cherry (being marginally less overpriced that Dr Pepper at the moment) and two bars of Cadbury's chocolate. (one Dairy Milk and one Oreo)

I went out in the pouring rain to do this. I'm 90% sure from the cheery way the cashier said 'have a nice weekend' that he must thing I'm a depressed alcoholic. 

The things one does for fandom.

edit: correcting so many typos. I've no drunk anything yet!

Spider-Man: Homecoming

I just got back from seeing Spider-Man: Homecoming, I’m still pretty amped up from it. So it definitely did something write. I’m a sourpuss and loathe to admit it but it is all things considered it’s probably to best Spider-Man movie that’s been made yet. On average.

And... Back

Did you miss me?

Didn't write. Did do a lot of reading. Some on A03, a hardcopy book and a kindle one.  Alternated between sorting the house out and going on walks. Did get sunburn and took some Devon landscape photos I'll do another post on sometime.

How is everyone? Did I miss much?

Things

More sad things in real life and the more and more we learn about the London fire the more of a travesty it becomes.

In happier news. I posted my Hphet thing yesterday (LJ | DW) It's Charlie/Tonks and didn't come out how I intended but you might enjoy it. And hprarefest is posting, which I have an entry in that may or may not have been post. ;)

My fandom slate is blank here. Not sure when/if I'll write again or for what. I'm trying not to force it.

What I am doing the moment is mainlining the first three seasons of comedy Brooklyn 99 on Netflix. Might finally watch Iron Fist when I'm finished with Nine-Nine. There's the new Magnificent 7 movie on Netflix as well I've been meaning to watch.

As for reading. I still have all the books I was given for my birthday to read. I've been slowly reading a book called 'this savage song' by VE Schwab my friend gave me. After that I've got the books I've asked for. Ramage and the Rebels (Napoleninc naval fiction) and Call To Duty (sci-fi). Then I'll tackle Joe Abercrombie's "The Blade Itself" that I picked up second hand for nothing. And then I'll finish my Dresden Files Re-read with 'Skin Game'

So that's not nothing. Hope everyone on my flist is doing well.

Real life

So for those who don't know here in the UK we had the fun of a snap general election. And I am way too chipper about the result. I've got a lot shadenfreude about this. Our prime minister Theresa May called it solely in the hopes of strengthening her majority and getting a proper 'mandate' for Brexit.  

She lost her majority. Likely will lose her job and Labour came out far more strongly than people thought they would.

On the other hand, she's still in power, and she's shored it up  by temaing up with the DUP who I'd barely heard of before but are an Irish party who are socially extremely  backwards but do want a soft brexit so heck tons of trouble is on the horizon there.

So it's not really good for the country but on the other hand I'm so damned glad we  didn't just do what May wanted.
