Drama-free?

I will never be that lucky! I do not look for drama; drama actively stalks me and pounces when I least expect it. Seriously.

Severus's Dear

ALIVE

Did anyone miss me?

Life is hectic and crazy as always.
The kids are growing and I now have the dubious pleasure of having a teenager under my roof.
Par for the course I've bitten off more than I can handle on the home front, but things seem to be working out. I'm making it a point to take time for myself these days.

Hoping everyone is well.

Severus's Dear

Writer's Block: Time in a bottle

If you could eliminate all the calendars, clocks, and measurements of time, how would it change your life? How about the world?


It would give me the ability to be on time for once.

Vampires Suck




I just might go see this one.

Bullshit

The White Knight

Summary: The way HP should have ended. Rowling broke it, fandom wanked about it, I fixed it. Or maybe I broke it more. Intentionally cliched, OOC, OTT, and just plain ridiculous.


Harry sprinted through the shattered remains of Hogwarts in a desperate attempted to outrun Voldemort. Turning the corner onto the fifth floor corridor, he discovered he was trapped.

"Potter, you fool," hissed the Dark Lord. "Did you really think you ever had the talent to conquer me?"

The boy cowered, trying to make himself into a smaller target. His arrogance had caused everything to go utterly, completely wrong. Ron was dead. Hermione was missing. Ginny was possessed by one of the Horcruces*.

"Take comfort, Potter. You're about to join your worthless Mudblood mother." Voldemort raised his wand and, with a flourish, moved to deliver the Killing Curse.

Just a Happy Little Thought

James Potter's Patronus is a stag! Or is it? Well, it's been pointed out to me that it really isn't a stag. Rowling said so in an interview once. Seriously! Unfortunately, I just can't find the quote now. Anyway, I really love to pick up unlikely, stay theories, shampoo them, feed them, and turn them into crackfic, so me being me and all, I just couldn't resist exploring the possibility of James Potter having something a little more 'unusual' for his Patronus.

Why, oh why...

is it that people have this tendency to take a good idea and make it sound so totally hokey and sappy?

One of my facebook friends, knowing I have three girls, sent me the link a website promoting age-appropriate preteen girls' clothing. Here I thought was something decent to check out, and it was... to an extent. Secret Keeper Girl has the basics of a good idea--anti-sexualization of very young girls--but the practical aspects of it get lost in the Evangelical sauce. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of good advice on how to select age appropriate clothing for preteen girls. Unfortunately some of it gets a little creepy and IMHO every bit as INappropriate as the issues addressed.

To avoid being cited for copyright infringement, I'm going to supply the link for the Truth or Bare tests along with my little opinions.
Truth or BareCollapse )

Our PUBLIC school has a dress-code, and the staff is very strict with the enforcement. My personal rule has always been "if it can't be worn to school, put it back on the rack." I don't let my girls run about in hot pants with JAILBAIT stamped across the ass not just because Jesus wants them to be pure, but because it's tacky. I don't let them wear halters or spaghetti straps for fear of exposing future cleavage, but rather for sun protection. (Even though that hole in the ozone layer is a huge myth. *eyeroll*) I don't let them wear micro minis, not because God wants them to save that view for their future husbands but because I want them to be respected. Bathing suits are a pain because my girls are skinny, long-torsoed things, so even if that size 10 one-piece fits around, the length gives an atomic wedgie. Fit the length and everything else hangs out. Two piece with a rash guard/swim shirt for sun protection for my girls. And yes, they wear shorts on the boardwalk.

Trust me, I'm all for age appropriate clothing for little (and not-so-little) girls and I consider myself a Christian. But why, oh why, does something as practical and down-to-earth as finding age appropriate clothing need to be so preachy? Can't the secular world get it together enough to get the clothing industry to realize that kids should be allowed to be kids for as long as possible? Or am I just the odd gal out?

I need some inspiration!

Work has been going well, but between that and the home front, I haven't had much time to do any writing. My brain is utterly empty of ideas at the moment. Would any of you like to help me fill it back up. All I need are twelve Christmas-themed prompts with a HP pairings (NOT SS/HG or I will puke in your stocking!) to do my Twelve Drabbles of Christmas. Leave a comment below containing the prompt and pairing. Thanks!

Twilight LOL and WTH

First off, let it be known I really don't like Twilight *cough*undestatement*cough*, so this little find just made my day. Some of the following were just downright disturbing and creepy and made coffee come out my nose. Since most of us don't always click on the little linky thingies, I was a loser and decided to cut and paste the pics, but the comments are mine.

For starters, we have something basic like Twilight the Bumper Sticker and Twilight the Window Cling.



A great way to announce your love of the fandom...
or that your driving skills suck.
