This is me making use of LJ's new sticky posts to put a Welcome message at the top of my LJ.

To all those new to my LJ, my name is Tasha (aka Beren for fanfic purposes). I am a full time author and run a small publishing company (Wittegen Press) with my sister thwax. On this journal you will find me talking about my books, my fanfic, my favourite movies, my favourite bands, recipes and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Check out my user info or the links down the side for my fanfic listings and below are all my books.

I welcome all friends, but please don't be offended if I don't friend you back if you have nothing on your LJ or your don't post much or you're under 16. If you are new to LJ, so your LJ is empty, drop me a comment here so I know you're not a troll/spam bot. 98% of all my posts are public, so it makes no difference.

"Draco," Harry said and his companion looked at him sharply.

It dawned on him that was the first time he had used Draco's first name out loud. They may have been having an affair, but it had always still been 'Malfoy' and 'Potter'. Apparently, Harry using Draco's first name had the same effect as Harry declaring his undying love.

Slytherins could be weird.

"You ... stupid Gryffindor ... you ..."

Harry had no idea what Draco was trying to say.

"You actually mean it."

"No, I tell everyone I'm in love with them." Harry had something of a sarcastic streak.

"I should have known getting involved with a Gryffindor would cause complications. Especially you," Draco complained.

"You were the one who came on to me," Harry protested, "and neither of us had had that much to drink at that party."

It had been some Ministry do and, come to think of it, they'd ended up in a cupboard then too. It was a pattern.

"It's not my fault you're compelling."

Harry didn't know what to say to that.

"Compelling?"

"Bloody Chosen Ones and their ridiculously green eyes," Draco muttered.

Harry was pretty sure he wasn't supposed to have heard that.

If Harry was truthful his confession of love had rather surprised him as he'd said it.

"Have you been at the Firewhiskey, Potter?" Draco asked.

"No!"

"You look like you took a bludger to the head."

"That's because I only just realised I'm in love with you when I said it. Give me a minute to get used to it."

"You're blithering."

"I am not blithering! I'm having a revelation. It's your fault. You were supposed to be a git with a nice arse, but you turned out to have a wicked sense of humour and loyalty and all that."

Author's Notes: I made the decision, it's a series of drabbles, at least for now :). Thanks to Soph for the beta.

"I distinctly remember you saying no one could ever know," Draco said, pulling out his wand and casting Lumos so they could see properly.

"I did," Harry admitted, "but that was when I thought you were just a nice looking, well hung bloke who was good in bed."

"I am all of those things."

"Oh, and with a giant ego," Harry added.

Draco let one of his eyebrows arch.

"And then?" he asked.

"Then I went and fell in love with you."

"You what?!"

"I fell in love with you."

Draco's belly twisted in a way he was unfamiliar with.

Author's Notes: So I may be thinking a lot about Harry Potter at the mo :) Thank to Soph for the beta.

Harry's back hit the wall of the broom cupboard and he decided enough was enough.

"We have to stop meeting like this," he said as he broke the kiss.

"Fed up with me already?"

Draco's voice was cold.

"No, you idiot Slytherin," Harry replied, "I want us to meet out there."

"Oh."

After the war, Harry and Ginny had decided they were better friends, and Draco had a contract with Astoria to produce an heir, but that's as far as the relationship went. What Harry and Draco had, had started as a fling, but Harry knew it was more now.

Has anyone posted fiction directly to Goodreads, either original or fanfiction?

I'd totally forgotten it was an option, even though I seem to have posted an extract there at some point in the dim and distant past. :)
  • Is it a good platform?
  • Not worth the effort?
  • Any pitfalls?
Thanks for any info.

Just rediscovered my account at Adult-Fanfiction.org :)

I think it was blocked or something from where I used to do my posting, so I mostly forgot about it, but then someone commented on one of my HP fics there today and so I went to check it out. Have updated my profile and everything :).

I had totally forgotten that I was in the middle of posting Black Magic By Moonlight when I lost access. It has been languishing there with only 10 out of the 35 chapters for at least ten years. Oops - it's now all up to date.

I have also nearly finished the repost of GTS to Wattpad - last 4 chapter to post tomorrow.

Is anyone else on Wattpad? I need more friends over there and links to interesting stories.

I hit my 50K words today :) Defence, Pretence, Offence now stands at ~152500 words and the first 10 chapters are nearly ready for posting.

NaNoWriMo 2016 Winner

Soph has beta'd them twice (she's a lot tougher than she was on GTS :)) and she's making me write a new scene after making me rearrange all the first scenes (she said the first sex scene happened too soon - okay, it was scene 2, she was right - LOL), but hopefully they should be ready to go up soon.

Defence, Pretence, Offence

Then it's just a matter of filling in the few scenes that still need finishing, before putting them before Soph's strict eye :).

To everyone else still writing to get their NaNoWriMo finished - YOU CAN DO IT!
Best of luck, I know you've got this!
