Item the First:
I decided some time ago that I'd continue just posting fic in archives, like fanfiction.net and UR.org, but what with one thing and another I've decided to create myself a fic journal-- or rather, a fic community, because I don't like having to log in and out and back in again all the time. (whine whine whine)
The fic journal part is actually the secondary purpose of it. The first is to be a virtual repository of all my assorted notes and research and backstory for all my assorted writing projects. I've got about six separate notebooks going, and sometimes trying to find anything between their covers is a bit needle-and-a-haystackish. I'm also deeply terrified that these notebooks might go missing or get accidentally destroyed or lost, and so I've begun the process of transcribing my notes (or at least the ones still worth transcribing) into a digital format that I can access from wherever there is an internet connection. I'm intensely excited to have the opportunity to tag all those notes so that they're -- gasp!
-- easy for me to find.
This is all by way of saying that my fic journal, paperworlds
, is as much for me as it is for the fic I finish, and that the vast majority of the posts will be set to private because probably no one really wants to read all that notebooky rubbish. However, all the finished fic posted there will
be public, so it will serve the same ultimate purpose as a fic journal would. So we'll just call it that, then, and anyone who cares to is welcome to watch it for updates, though all the UR.org roomies should know I'll probably get around to posting at the UR archive first.Item the Second:
Titled Nothing a Good Imperius Wouldn't Solve
and written for omniocular
's January Challenge. I was skimming the prompts and no one had taken the Imperius Curse yet, which I thought was just a crying shame. It features my favorite Slytherin, dear Severus Snape, and it's quite dark, really, but he's quite a dark character so I suppose it suits him.
I successfully dug my car out of the snow, so it's back to work bright and early tomorrow morning. Shucks.
