First mention of Harry Potter on my LJ

Okay so this is the first entry mentioning Harry Potter on my LJ and it isn't even on this one. This LJ was created specifically for my HP fanfic and then it grew (the first post here was on 19th June 2003), so my first mention is on my other (defunk) account tasha27. It's all private these days, so you won't see anything over there, but it's all still there :).

Date: 02 June 2003 @ 17:02

Okay, I admit it, I've picked up another fandom: Harry Potter, Draco/Harry to be precise.

I was only looking for something to read while I was waiting for some more decent Mutant X fanfic to come out and suddenly I have a whole new fandom to deal with. I've finally gotten around to reading the books and watching the second movie (which has been hanging around our DVD shelf since the day it came out) and I'm hooked. Yes, I have book five on order :-).

The funny thing is as far as I'm concerned there is no Harry/Draco in the books, not a whit, don't see it at all when I'm reading J.K. but there are some fantastic fanfics written for it that have me believing I'm reading about the same characters. I must say it's actually nice to be in a fandom where there are so many rec sites - no hours of aimless searching, it's just there. Happiness is mine ::g::.

Ooh which reminds me, must send Mutant X fic to Soph for beta.

Author's Note: EWE. In honour of the hp_reunion I decided to do an HP drabble today :).

"I'll sue. How dare they!" Draco slammed the paper down on the deck.

Harry glanced at the front page and felt disappointment well in his chest. He and Draco had been working together for a few months. He had hoped they might be heading for something more personal.

The headline read: "Potter and Malfoy in Relationship?"

"It is beneath me..." Draco was getting going.

"So I'm beneath you?" Harry challenged.

"Not you idiot," Draco said without missing a beat, "the club we're supposed to meet at; a third rate, pixie infested dive! The nerve!"

Harry was so shocked he laughed.

NaNoWriMo - Update 1

I am so close to being caught up with NaNo. I'm ~500 wds short of what I should be at today at the moment.

I didn't have a chance to write anything on the 1st because it was Rob's little brother's 21st birthday, so we had to head up to Colchester to help him celebrate. Hence I started writing 1,667 wds short on the 2nd. I have almost caught up, but I've reached a point where I need to have a think.

The thing about writing from the seat of my pants is that sometimes I just have to sit back and cogitate to work out which is the best way to go :). I think I may go poke at the website for a while, make sure it's all up to date and let the idea percolate in my brain.

Then I need to write some more so I am up to date, then I can work on getting ahead because I think I'm going the Amsterdam some time this month, but don't know when :).

Of course it would help if I actually knew what the main plot was! I know it's a murder, I know what's going on with the protagonist and the supporting main cast, I just have no idea why my victim was bumped off or who's behind it ::g::.
