      Currently that is WIP, but I was working on AU Lovecraftian characters at Hogwarts because it sounded like fun.

      I've written 0 words in years, so you're way ahead of me. :P

  5. Hmm, my wife just whispered Cthulhu in my ears when I mentioned this. Put me as a maybe with Lovecraftian mythos.
  6. Got call back from recruiter. Passed my job interview. Have a ride-along next week. May have to start in city 60 miles south or I might have to wait for job in my nearby 10-20 mile city radius. Will have to talk with wife about this.

      That would be a long commute...I hope everything works out!

  7. Immediately went from job interview, which I felt went well, to dentist to get crown put on.

  8. Writing! Starting a multi-chaptered fic in the Lovegood-Potter Lunaverse with Harry and Luna's twins heading off to Hogwarts. Luna will then have an important, uncomfortable discussion with Harry. OTP may be broken, but Luna still knows what's best for Harry.

  9. Started new job at new store today that I transferred to. It's something I've done before, so it was way easy.

      I am very glad to hear the transition is going well!  :hug:

  10. Thank you so much for the review on The Red Dragon. I think you'll find the 2nd and 3rd chapter are the best written, but I'm so glad you liked what you read. I'll answer your review soon! This was just what I needed to find after today (left the store I've worked at for 26 years and am transferring to another one starting Monday).

      No hurry! And it was high time I read it. You've always been one of my favorite writers too. :)

    Link to Chapter(s): Luna's Law: or the Dangers of Amortentia (M) chapter 2 Word Count: about 2400 Summary: Cormac McLaggen has been apppointed flying instructor at Hogwarts, but he has a dark secret in his past. Luna Scamander teams up with Rita Skeeter and Hermione Weasley to push through changes in the way the law treats dosing someone with Amortentia. Warning: the sexual assault advisory on this is real, and it explores also the demeaning questions that lawyers ask victims of sexual assault. Genre: dark/horror, drama Main Characters: Cormac McLaggen, Luna Lovegood, Rita Skeeter, Hermione Weasley, Harry Potter Ships: none Areas of Concern: did I do a decent job making Rita a sympathetic character in this chapter. Overall thoughts about the story arc. Preferred Staffer (if applicable): Veritaserum27 (since she left such a nice review on the first chapter) Thank you so much for the nice review on the first chapter. Requesting 2nd chapter, please.

Does this do a good job of showing this? I wanted the abuse to be 'in your face' so it's not hiding behind innuendoes. Does this capture that? [b]Preferred Staffer (if applicable):[/b] no preferred staffer, but please only read if you are comfortable with the topic. Hmm, some weirdness happened with the formatting here, not sure why?
  13. Dentist called while I was at work. The molds they took for my crown weren't any good, so I went back in after work. They took 2 more molds that weren't any good and by that time I was sore, so I asked for a local anesthetic (which they had offered earlier but I turned down). So, now my face is numb and I'm very, very hungry. Got a shake on the way home just to tide me over until the numbness wears off.
