H/G Book 7 kiss

Whoa.

Ever get that feeling like you just missed getting struck by lightening? I'm kinda in that place right now. Basically, almost immediately after my trip to Annapolis, I got the sort of phone call from a co-worker that no one wants to get, and let it suffice to say that we had to get our hands dirty with the Virginia Department of Labor and I was threatening legal action by Monday morning. This doesn't seem to me to be the right place to discuss what happened, but let it suffice to say that the drama is almost over and things are, at the moment, okay. My psychological state is another story, of course, and I'm sorry if I missed your e-mails, text messages, or phone calls, because you can bet I wasn't fit to talk to many people.

But it's all right, because there were some silver linings, many of them way overdue to be shared with you guys. :)

First off, SpellCast Season Two just got off the ground - in AAC format! It's fun - it actually sounds like we're recording from the Three Broomsticks, and while you're listening, you can see a little picture of our hangout (drawn by me). Check out our shownotes:

In other news, my story, Mum, Dad, It's Me... Harry, won the runner-up Mugglenet Fanfiction Quick Silver Quill for Best General Story! (*is utterly astonished*) More exciting is that I get to share this excitement with belladonna_tb who won the runner-up for Best Romance for her beautiful story, Wednesday Dates. I'm so honored to be among such truly wonderful writers.

And speaking of truly wonderful writers, lunalovepotter has written another masterpiece based on this picture. It's called "The Promise", and you can read it here: http://fics-by-llp.livejournal.com/36140.html#cutid1. Bring your tissues!

Also, if you're looking for hella awesome icons, look no further than ahewlett's LJ. She did a fantastic icon post featuring my artwork and that of some of my absolute favorite fandom artists, so pop on over and see it at http://ahewlett.livejournal.com/38320.html#cutid1.

While I'm on a roll, I adore hippie_girl8 for drawing me the following ridiculously steamy Ron/Hermione pivture. Talk about your pick-me-ups! She's hosting it at DevArt, and I'm not sure what you need to do in order to view it, but I think if you've got an account and you specify that you meet their requirements to view restricted material, you can see it here: http://hippie-girl.deviantart.com/art/Moonlight-61446636.

Lastly, I am grateful to hp5freak for all the ways she kept me away from the ledge this weekend. Amber, you warm my heart... and my head! The skull cap you crocheted fits perfectly and it's helping me get through the November chill!

And that's all she wrote. I hope everyone here is well, and I'm gonna take some time today and scroll through the flist in an attempt to catch up. Cheers everyone! :)
