Right, I mentioned I'm trying to get myself organized? Been finding all sorts of things I've posted some places but not others, with no rhyme or reason I can discern for where they went or didn't go. Am trying to get the mess straightened out.

Gimme a break, my first fandom was so small, there were only about three BNFs, and I knew all of them. Some days I still feel like a small town girl in the big city ;)

Author's Notes: This fic was written for hd_worldcup 2008, for Team Epilogue, Tarot card prompt "The Fool." Thanks so much to Owensmom, Irishmommy, Calanthe, and Twisted Miracle for extensive beta, Britpick, and, sometimes, entire passages ;)

Warning: This fic is probably the piece I've written that has received the most negative reviews ever. It even unwittingly helped spawn a wankfest that eventually made it all the way to fandomwank, w00t!

'Course, lots of other folks did like it (including me - though of course, I'm a bit biased ;)), but don't think you're weird if you don't like it, because hey! You're in good company :D :D

Also: Draco's wife was referred to as Astoria Greengrass by JRK in an interview, but then the family tree she drew seemed to show the name as Asteria. I chose Asteria because Astoria makes me think of a hotel, and then I think of Paris Hilton, and then it's all downhill from there.

I'm a little hesitant about posting this because it's a lot like a Director's Commentary thingy. I've tried to watch the ones for LOTR so many times, and they're unbelievably soporific. Love them, really interested in what they have to say, but they knock me out within ten minutes every time.

Posting it anyway. If you choose to read, have soft things nearby, so when you fall asleep you won't bruise yourself ;)

So, yeah, Riptide. Which I wrote.

Has got to be the most responded-to thing I've ever written, at least on a per-word basis. Bond got more comments, but it's a monster and has been up for years now, so it doesn't count. I started writing down my thoughts after some of the comments Riptide got and it kinda... grew. ::blinks in dismay:: And kept growing. And by now, OMG it even needs a Table of Contents ::facepalm:: Read only the parts that interest you :)

Note: Draco's wife was referred to as Astoria Greengrass by JRK in an interview, but then the family tree she drew seemed to show the name as Asteria. I chose Asteria because Astoria makes me think of a hotel, and then I think of Paris Hilton, and then it's all downhill from there.

Reveals! Are up!

And Team Epilogue won!!!11! Holy [censored]!

Must say, I am not at all surprised that the voting was ridiculously close (ten points between team #1 and #4, apparently). I didn't get to read many of them (::glowers darkly at Bar::), but was following the reccage and it seemed pretty evenly split. Have about twenty fics, from all the teams, marked "Must Read" dangling before me as a prize after the exam. And the artwork, which I did see, was out of this world amazing, again pretty evenly acrosss the board.

And hey teammates! ::high fives you all:: Great working with y'all :) :)

OK, I think that's enough abuse of exclamation points for one post, now back to studying.

  • ...if I've been even slower to answer comments/e-mails than normal. Brain is being eaten alive by &*^%ing bar exam readings. House => filthy, children => joyous (as they're essentially on holiday and they're eating a lot of pizza), eyes => red.

  • Last day to guess fics/art at [ profile] hd_worldcup, as tomorrow's the Big Reveal :)

  • I would love to give a bunch of recs. Sadly, I have read very few of the fics. But! [ profile] gossymer is a much better reader and a much better person than I, and you can see her recs/comments here:

    Lots of other folks who are also better readers/persons than I have also been reccing, and if I had more time and less legal/academic crap to read, I would link you to their rec posts. Instead I'll just mention them:

    [ profile] ayes_sid, [ profile] coffeejunkii, [ profile] frantic_mice, [ profile] marguerite_26, [ profile] painless_j, [ profile] ravenqueen55, [ profile] romaine_24, and [ profile] winnett.

    BTW, I didn't even compile that list; [ profile] anthimaeria did, here. Hers has direct links, too.

    I know I missed a few, so if you made recs and would like me to post them, please let me know! This ain't the Daily Snitch of [ profile] hd_prophet, but last I checked I had... ::checking:: good Lord! 287 people on my flist, so somebody might read it :)

    For example:
    First two weeks of hd_worldcup:

  • Prince Caspian? ::swoon::

  • If anybody can explain the following paragraph to me, I will give them my firstborn:

    Although the names of the first directors and the address and place of the registered office are included in articles of incorporation under the OBCA, a change in the directors or in the address of the registered office within the municipality or geographic township where the registered office is located or a change in the municipality or geographic township in which its registered office is located to another place in Ontario does not require an amendment to the articles.

    Come to think of it, gift of firstborn might not be a big draw; he's too few moons shy of encroaching surly teenagehood. Secondborn, then.
annafugazzi: (Default)
OK, everything's been posted now. Voting will be going on for another week, and the Big Reveals will take place Sunday after next. As far as I know. Correct me if I'm wrong, please?

Anyway here's a handy-dandy little display of all the stories and art posts for Team Epilogue. If you want to play the guessing game and match authors/artists to entries, go ahead!

The writers on our team (in alphabetical order) were [ profile] _pinkchocolate, [ profile] acromantular, [ profile] annafugazzi, [ profile] chaeldub, [ profile] ennyousai, [ profile] femmequixotic, [ profile] frayach, [ profile] confusedkayt, [ profile] kabal42, [ profile] meri_oddities, [ profile] klynie1, [ profile] lesyeuxverts00, [ profile] mahaliem, [ profile] malachic, [ profile] noticeably, [ profile] novembersnow, [ profile] nqdonne, and [ profile] scoradh.

Our artists were [ profile] jin_fenghuang, [ profile] plotting_pen, [ profile] red_rahl, [ profile] ships_harry, and [ profile] twilightsorcery.

And our Team Captain was [ profile] nqdonne, who deserves a big cheer!

I can now give you two hints as to the identity of my entry: it was a story, not a piece of art, and it has already been posted ;)

Right! Keep meaning to do this, then forget. Brain like sieve.

There's this sort of meme-thingy, where participants in the [ profile] hd_worldcup challenge their flists to guess which entry they wrote, then promise prizes for the first one to do so (eg a drabble of your choice, icon, etc). I'd like to do it. Without the promising part of the prize thing, seeing as how I'm a tad up to my derriere in alligators in both RL and ficlife right now. 'Cause I'm curious. Because right now the most thrilling things I'm reading look like this:

The test as to whether or not the consideration is "conspicuously" greater or less than fair market value is an objective one. Courts have found "conspicuous" to mean "remarkable" and "noteworthy" or "striking", "manifest", "notable" or "flagrant". For example, a difference of $1 million between the fair market value and the consideration received by the bankrupt has been found to be conspicuous.

And if you were trying to memorize crap like that, wouldn't you want to be distracted by people guessing what you wrote?

So yeah, if you think you know which [ profile] hd_worldcup Team Epilogue fic I wrote, let me know! Of course I won't be able to say yes or no until the reveal, and in fact, I can't even tell you whether my fic has already gone up or not as there are still three more postings to go, but hey. Give it a shot :)
annafugazzi: (Default)
Which set is this? I think it's the fifteenth. Yes? No? I cannot say; am experiencing Brain Death by Bar Exam.

Anyway, whichever number this is, here's the [ profile] hd_worldcup entries for The Hermit. Enjoy!

    Wordcount: 8,200

  • To the Sheer Love of Madness - Team EWE

...sure wish I could enjoy them. But no, instead I'm reading about case conferences and jurisdiction over Family Law matters and work product privilege and where to file a notice of objection now that it is no longer mandatory to obtain a CRA Form T400A "Objection - Income Tax Act". Just, like, kill me now.
