      I just realized that I have written 125k words of a next-gen fic and James has not used “Sirius is my middle name” as a joke once in that entire time... I feel like I’ve failed him somehow.

      This is the first time I’ve been accused of being in cahoots with Rita Skeeter in a review response 😂💙

      I tweeted about this but I wanted to reach everyone on the site: if you’re interested in an HPFT book club, would you mind commenting/liking this? I think it’d be fun to select a book together, share reactions, and then maybe Skype chat about it after we’ve all finished! ❤️

      So if literally anything happened outside the Ravenclaw common room in the last four weeks I did not see it. Feel free to link me to things you want me to see -- I promise I'm not snubbing you on purpose!!

      ONE WEEK TO GO for the narrative OF challenge! get your entries in soon! remember, you only need 1000 - 4500 words so there's still enough time to enter the challenge/ begin your one-shot if you haven't already.

      Do not stress the puzzles folks. Please try to incorporate your four (4) puzzles into your final layouts within the next 3.5 hours, but PM me if there's a timezone problem because we weren't particularly clear on them. The PM will toll the deadline ON THAT ISSUE ONLY.
      I'll be up for a bit longer, but the bottom line is we're not looking to crush dreams based off our lack of clarity on this point.

      I'm most comfortable writing dark/suspense stuff so I think I'll try my hand at some romance (but to be fair, it'll probably have some angst in it bc that's just who i am)  However, to make it more challenging, I'm thinking of writing something in the Founders Era as I have nothing on my AP from that time period. Count me in as a Maybe for now!

      Ah, I've gotta get out of writers' block somehow, and my own outlines are becoming impressively chaotic... I'm doing a Writer's Journal! Woohoo! *Ahem* Anyway, Writer's Journal. Hello, y'all, I'm Lady Ausra, hyper fangirl extraordinaire! I'm called Rynna Aurelia everywhere else because Reasons having to do with longevity and names and laziness. Where am I called it, you ask? Well, it is becoming a rather impressively long list: FFN, AO3, Wattpad, HPFF, and HPFT. If you want my uncensored foul-mouthed ramblings, I recommend Tumblr. Or just talk to me on AO3 in general, I think I'm becoming kinda infamous for swearing tangents on why I love my characters so much—or, alternately, why I want their heads on pikes.   Here's where you'll get the—clean versions, I solemnly swear—of various plotting tidbits, character development, plot bunnies in their infancy/adolescence, and, of course, any Q&A anyone feels like throwing at me. But I digress, and to make the point I was originally trying to get to: I do prefer Ausra, it's far closer to my actual name. But, that's not the point of this; to my writing! Right now, I'm mostly playing in any fandom sandbox that catches my fancy (And there are many) but I hope to one day starting on an original novel that I've been chipping away at for a while now. Hogwarts and Camp Half-Blood are my homes, though, so they're not going away any time soon. Speaking of the devils... Current Works In Progress: The Grass is Greener on the Other Side (Or So They Say): [M] My first fanfiction, and I suspect it shows in the premise (I still love it though, so... I guess something important?). Female!Harry Potter combined with James and Lily living past Halloween 1981, with few other things thrown in for good measure. It picks up Fourth Year, with canon gradually breaking down and taking off in another direction; fair warning, there are high quantities of pointless friendship fluff, angst, swearing, discussion of Bad Things, and the author pretending she knows what she's doing. Currently sitting just above the 50K mark once everything's cross-posted, and barely a fraction of the way through at 16 chapters, as my self-declared fanfic passion project (Read: Self-edited, Merlin have mercy on my soul). Probably going to be around the 100 chapter mark by the time I finish, someday. Official Summary: "Lily Evans had loved her daughter very much; enough to use magic that shouldn't exist.
      (Danger had dogged the Childe's path for years - )
      James Potter had loved his daughter very much; enough to help.
      How dare they -
      They could not have her.
      When they were gone, a ward would be left in place of their sacrifice, constructed to protect their child the only way possible: at all costs. But they hadn't planned on Voldemort's eventual return; or the ward deciding to seek their help in protecting their child... " Hold Tight and Pretend It's a Plan: [M] The first installment in my great quest to single-handedly get the Percy Jackson fandom more good fanfic: The world ends with the second Gigantomachy, contrary to prophecy. The Fates use a method as ill-advised and risky as Percy Jackson's existence to send him back in time to avert. Unfortunately, there are many unintended consequences; Annabeth trying to kill him is only one of them. A time travel fic with a PJO twist, and a hearty dose of swearing in multiple languages, PTSD from fighting in two wars, angst, Luke Castellan, Luke-centered angst, the di Angelos, time-related angst, and Percy messing with the timelines as only a demigod loyal to his loved ones could. Currently sitting barely south of 50K, once all cross-posting and sundry is complete, but that will change with the next update. Official Summary: Olympus has fallen. The second Gigantomachy has ended, and in Gaia's triumph, the world has been torn apart.
      But the Fates look on at their meddling, and undo what should never have happened.
      Percy Jackson is returned to his twelve-year-old self, memories intact and determined to save everyone, of course. But he is not alone. The Moirai underestimated the strength of the Lord of Time when stealing his power, and there is something about this particular demigod brat that intrigues him... Other Works: I also have a few one-shots—two of which are in the same 'verse as my WIP Harry Potter fic—but most of them are self-indulgent, embarrassing, or both. One's crack, three of them are sappy, one is James Bond, and one is Marvel.They're all on FFN, AO3, and Wattpad if you're absolutely determined to check them out. Original Fiction Novel: My intended NaNoWriMo project for November. Very, very complicated, and half-way drafted, so it's probably gonna take up the majority of this. I do very much like my MC, Roxanna Schuyler, though. Schedule: Currently, I update on the first of every month for my WIPs, and whenever I finish editing for any one-shots. This will probably be dictated by my life and its varying levels of insanity. So, that's it for me, for now. Feel free to ask me anything, drop a critique of my writing, or start a discussion about anything I write about, whether it's favorite ships or the meaning of life!
