This journal is more my fandom and writing journal than anything else. My LJ is much more rambling and personal. If you want an archive, go hit up the melfinastories comm on LJ). You might also try the petulant poetess or just hit the Master List above, and the monthly writing roundup tags for anything written since the Master List was last updated.
Oh, and for a bit of pimpage...
Because I participated 5 times (snerk)

Also, My 25 prompts table, now recreated! for more Malfoy goodness.

DragonCon 2013 and yeah, not dead

So, I went to DragonCon over labor day weekend, and it was awesome. Serious awesomesauce. I give you....
A video proving the awesome, which I can't seem to get youtube to imbed. There's also another dcon video I uploaded, but this one is the BEST EVER!
Yup, that is Radagast the Brown and two of the dwarves (I forget which ones) doing Misty Mountains. And yes, the woohoos and giggles are mine. Damn, I sound weird.

And there is photographic evidence (some annotated, some not) over here....
DragonCon 2013



I also now own a picture of John Barrowman in his undies, because, well, drool... I'm not going to promise to be around much, but I am going to try to update over here and at lj much more, and I do have a muse hitting me over the head with Snape/Malfoy pulling one over on the Order.

Random fanfic pimp.. (go read, it's funny, I promise!)

Just apologizing in advance...

"You've had lessons on how to manipulate people?"

"Of course," Draco said proudly. "I'm a Malfoy. Father bought me tutors."

Dear Father:

Suppose I told you that I met a student at Hogwarts, not already part of our circle of acquaintances, who called you a 'flawless instrument of death' and said that I was your 'one weak point'. What would you say about him?

It didn't take long after that for the family owl to bring the reply.

My beloved son:

I would say that you had been so fortunate as to meet someone who enjoys the intimate confidence of our friend and valuable ally, Severus Snape.

Okay, if you are stronger than me, you might not be giggling now. But come on, don't you want to read a fic where in the first part HP calculates the amount the Wizarding economy might be losing by converting from pounds to gold, and then decides it might be more valuable to learn how the Wizarding World works rather than take their economy over (which might take a week)?
Plus HP understands the awesome killing power of Lucius very early on, so yay more Lucius (unlike Game of Thrones, where the lookalike actor does not get his due in Season 2, unlike Draco's actor (cause I am rooting for him to get his due quickly)).

In other words.... GO READ THIS NOW!! NOW!!!
Note: the Lucius-lookalike actor is the assassin guy who talks funny in season 2. He's my new geek crush, see drool..

Jun. 3rd, 2012

I have a date in a bit over an hour.

Also, I really need to go through my archive and properly tag fics, with ratings if nothing else.

And did I mention the date? First one since October (unless you count the entire 'man thought we were dating, I thought we were friends hanging out and DO NOT WANT' thing, which I don't).

I should um, go put on makeup and see what the heck my hair is doing now.

Jun. 1st, 2012

I am kinda grumpy about the entrenched rape culture within video games, so, um, somehow I ended up on youtube trying to find a clip from the animated Hobbit. Didn't find it, but I did find this, and then my brain said "Oooh, Dark Lord... DEATH EATER SONG!"

So, my little gift of crack to you all on this Friday night, imagine various Death Eaters singing this. If I had any idea how to make a music vid, believe me I'd do it. Can't you just see Lucius and Severus doing this, with Draco chiming in? Okay, now I have a plot bunny where they're forced to do musical theatre as penance. Yup, still insane :)



Oh, and the animated Return of the King is worth watching only for the music, but the animated Hobbit is awesome.

My recreated 25 prompts table

So my 25 Prompts table (along with many of the fics) has been deleted and purged. So I'm recreating as best I can. Links go wherever I could find the story posted.
Missing Calm because well, the journal's purged, and I can't find it in a backup form anywhere. All I remember is that it involved lyrics from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Oh, well, teach me not to backup.
Amused Angry Aroused Bored Calm
Cheerful Confused Disappointed Ecstatic Embarrassed
Excited Guilty Hopeful Intimidated Loved
Mischievous Nostalgic Playful Relaxed Romantic
Satisfied Shocked Sympathetic Thankful Worried

So, um, not dead. Just haven't written in over a year, and life as a caretaker is kinda boring. There's been much knitting, some World of Warcraft playing (and blogging), and some trying to be a better person.

My life is not so much with the interesting atm

I am twittering, mostly because I found this neat extension that sticks twitter inside chrome. Most of my twitters seem to involve coffee. I blame the time-change and late-night raiding. I am melfina the blue there too. If you also twitter, feel free to add me and I'll add you back.

I have signed up for the lucius big bang because well, it's a fest involving Lucius. How could I not sign up? I do not expect it to be a repeat of the magic that was luciusfqf, but it will mean I get at least one fic out of my brain and on to paper. I am vaguely alarmed that the protofic is threatening to turn epic, but I am hopeful I can squash that.

In other news, I live in one of the top ten most affluent areas in the USA, and one of only 2 in the Southeast. I find it rather amusing that a) I am broke, and b) if I hadn't lived here my entire life, I couldn't afford to live here. I am also highly amused that about half the list is in California, the disaster state. It really does seem like every year, and sometimes more than once a year, there's some disaster there. Fires, earthquakes, mud slides.... At least in GA we manage to spread our disasters out a bit more.

Still job-hunting, grad school applying, and wowing. Occasionally knitting, but mostly my free time is wow. I appear to have lost more weight, judging by the increase in loose skin.

I saw Alice (I got a free pass for standing around outside the theater in Victorian dress) and I liked it. It was not the greatest thing ever, and I am not overly thrilled with the new subtext, but it was visually enjoyable and Depp's changing accent actually seemed intentional to me, a way to signal a personality shift.

Ooh, and I finally saw Peter Pan with Jason Isaacs (yes, I fail as an Isaacs fan, but in my defense I like to spread out the happy). Hook and Lucius have a lot in common, and it did lead me to the conclusion that I like his villains best. Next on the list is the Patriot, though I may need alcohol to get through that.

The Poem meme. I grabbed my quotation book, and this was the first poem (or possibly excerpt) that I came across, so I figured it worked. He's noy my favorite poet (TS Eliot) or my second or third favorite, but the words are powerful.

From thee all human actions take their springs,
The rise of empires, and the fall of kings!
See the vast theatre of time display'd,
While o'er the scene succeeding heroes tread!
With pomp the shining images succeed,
What leaders triumph, and what monarchs bleed!
Perform the parts thy Providence assigned,
Their pride, their passions to thy ends inclin'd:
A while they glitter in the face of day
Then at thy nod the phantoms pass away;
No traces left of all the busy scene,
But that remembrance says - the things have been!
Samuel Boyse

An Open Letter to My Muse

Dear Muse,

You appear to have jumped the shark. You have taken a nice post War Lucius/Harry with a possible side order of Lucius/Severus/Harry and turned it into well, I don't know what.

I admit I had something to do with it. I probably shouldn't have watched Cloverfield while trying to write. But I am fairly certain the world does not need nor want a Harry Potter/Cloverfield crossover. Granted the idea of a monster attacking London does have some appeal, and it is by no means a stretch to assume that the Ministry would blame Death Eaters and lock them all back up, but really, Harry outing Lucius and then quitting his job as an Auror to take care of him after the other Aurors do horrible things to him? And why, oh why, does Lucius now have a long braid like that guy from Gundam Wing? Yes, I know they both have the same hair color and they both wear masks, but that is not the point!

I am not feeding you any chocolate till you give me my nice simple post war fic back.

Sincerely,
Melfina

PS-> the tentacle idea is RIGHT OUT! I've prompted over at the tentacle fest and someone else will write it. Not me. Are we quite clear on that?

PSPS->And no, I will not write a crack fic along those lines either. Nor will there be a magical accident, uncontrollable tentacles, and random penetration. Did you see what I said above about jumping the shark? It's not a good thing!

Feb. 20th, 2010

So watching OotP again while drunk has put some interesting ideas in my head...

Does anyone else hear Lucius say "I can show you everything." and immediately think "And yes you can, preferably with Severus' able assistance. It's amazing how many things they leave out of sex ed. Oh, and Draco may want to join in, but since you've been having fun stalking him, I assume you have no problem with that." -> Obviously I am severely warped, but it is fun. *giggle*

And I so want to write a fic where Harry calls Lucius Lucious. Just because I can. Now back to the movie, the wine, and downloading Lucius wallpapers. I have a computer with no Lucius pictures. If that's not a crime against fandom, I don't know what is.

My Life Among the Death Eaters, part 1

Title:My Life Among the Death Eaters, part 1 of I have no idea
Characters:Lucius Malfoy, Abraxas Malfoy, and whoever else decides to show up
Warnings:Will likely turn smutty. May turn violent. I blame Lucius, and I don't really know where he's going with this.
Plot Summary:Near the end of his life, Lucius decides to put pen to paper and set a few things straight. This is the result.
Author's Note: This popped into my head and demanded to be written. I'm not sure how long it'll be, or where it's going, or anything about it really. I do see it more as excerpts rather than one big continuous whole.
Fic here )

Feb. 11th, 2010

Okay, need to get back in the habit of checking comments. Anyway, inamac requested pictures, so here you go...
Pictures )

In practical terms I've lost 90 pounds, gone from a 2x top to a large top and from a 3x bottom to a 16 bottom. My shoe size has changed, as has my ring size, and I've lost some hair (it's starting to come back). Also, yes those are just finished socks I'm holding.

Jan. 25th, 2010

I ATENT DED

Okay, so this place is a bit more dust-filled than I remember.

Let's see, in the past six months I've...
dropped to under 200 pounds
got a dog
started seriously looking for a job
knitted some socks
played a lot of WoW
started updating my tech skills
joined a Revolutionary War reenactment group

and done very little writing.

I may have a puppy!


Precious Prudence
Adult Female
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Precious Prudence is a 6-year-old, 23-pound Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She has a beautiful black-and-tan coat and a sweet disposition. Prudence came to us from a large-scale commercial breeding operation in another state. She is easy-going and gentle. Prudence is a happy girl who along well with other dogs and enjoys the company of people. She is calm, loving, friendly and affectionate. In short, this is one lovely dog who will make someone a great low-key companion. It’s time for her to find that special quiet home where she will be loved and appreciated for years to come.


We saw her at Petco today and fell in love. Oddly enough, it was a complete spur of the moment thing. Mom and I had gone to Whole Foods, and as we were leaving we heard barking. Petco has adoption saturdays, so we decided to go look. She was the first dog I saw.

App is in, and I should know sometime this week. She's a puppy mill dog, which brings an interesting set of challenges, but she is such a sweetheart. She's shy of people approaching her and will flinch a bit when you reach to pet her, but loves being talked to and held. Her name will be changed, so feel free to offer suggestions.

There was fic this week. I know you're all stunned. But fic is on lappy, and I am on desktop, so that will come later. Instead, I am swiping a vid from [info]asnowyowl because I laughed so hard I hurt myself.
Warning, not WORK SAFE, but hysterical )

In other news, the remix redux is going on, so you should go sign up. I will not be because the muse appears to be stress-driven right now, plus I want to get Iron Torturer and the Janitor Globe fics written.

I did get to see Star Trek and it was awesome and they had a promo box thing for the new HP movie and I squeed. Draco learned the Lucius look! YAYS! Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to plotting how to kidnap both of them....

Update and a Ficlet/Snipet

Healing well, sick of soft food. The slope of my upper stomach is now concave instead of convex, which makes me happy. I'm going with slow and steady is a) better for me, and b) more likely to stick.
I have been doing some writing, and wowing, and reading, and knitting, and um, walking. Way too much walking.

I found this drabble/beginning of a fic while cleaning out My Documents this morning, and I'm not sure where it was meant to go, but it's funny. So, I'm posting it. If you want to write more of it, feel free. Personally, I'm a bit too distracted by WoW (dude, I'm raiding) and the Arthur Weasley shouldn't run an economy fic. But the Draco/Harry interaction of this one cracks me up, so I must preserve it for posterity....

"Look Potter, you're the one who lost the bet. Just deal with it."

"I feel like an idiot."

"Well, that's your problem, not mine. After all, if you didn't want to do this, you shouldn't have let me choose the stakes. You're gay, my father is gay, and since the Cannons lost the cup, you have to go on a date with him."

"Does it ever occur to you that setting your father up is more than a little twisted, not to mention immoral?"

"Morality is for lesser creatures. I'm a Malfoy."

"You're cracked is what you are."

"Doesn't matter. I have my reasons and you're doing it."

"He's married!"

"Divorced, depressed, oh and his best friend died. He needs some cheering up and you're just the person to do it."

"This is so far beyond insane. How the hell are you going to get him to agree to this?"

"I have my ways. Now, Friday, be at the Manor at six. He hates tardiness."

"It's not like I care what your father thinks of me, Malfoy."

"If he doesn't have a good time, I am entitled to a forfeit. And I think parading you around in a schoolgirl costume would be a lovely one."

Harry blushed bright red.

"You wouldn't dare."

Draco leaned forward.

"Not only would I dare, I'd vanish your underwear."

"You're sick."

"Just do it, Potter."

"I hate you so much, Malfoy."

"It's mutual, Potter. Now, try to wear something semi-decent, will you? And wash behind your ears."

Harry sighed.

"Yes, mum."

"Potter, if I was your mum, I would have drowned you at birth. Just be there. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a meeting to get to."

Draco sauntered off, and once again Harry swore never ever to drink to excess. When he was drunk he did stupid things, like make an unwinable bet with Malfoy. Damn Malfoy.
