This is probably a good time to confess that I haven't read my flist since the last week in December, so I have no idea what's been happening with you all or in Snarry fandom since I deserted for the bright and shiny crack that is Prince of Tennis. *hangs head* Seriously, you should all blame [info]nimori. She has no shame. Real Life has been crazy as well. Briefly, I've been back to Japan twice, taking Eldest Son for his first visit and then racing back the week before last to see Youngest Son graduate from university and help him move into the inner-city now that he is a corporate drone. First time driving in Japan, and we're going straight into Tokyo city, kids! Work is as mad as usual and I'm up to my neck in funding applications. Too much work, not enough staff. Story of my life!

*stubs toe in dirt*

Forgive me? And tell me any exciting news and gossip that's been happening for you? I hope only good things have been! But tell me the news, folks, and I shall try and piece my life back together!

I think the cats are determined to come with me next time!

Hey! Welcome back *hugs*

Sounds like you've been more than busy! Congratulations with Youngest Son's graduation! That's awesome!

I can't much help with Snarry-related stuff (other than [info]snarry_games are posting champion interviews), so you'll have to stick with what I'm up to ;-)

Fandom-wise, I'm going to Terminus and sharing room with [info]unsymbolic and still looking for more roommates. I have a paper to present and will be on a panel as well. Busy me! (Also written a largish fic for [info]hd_worldcup - the Cup will start posting this Tuesday.)
University is busy and I got myself elected to Vice Chair of the national LGBT org here. More busy! Meep!
But I'm feeling good :-)

Toy. Glad to see you popping your head up. What is this Prince of Tennis that you speak of? I'm hoping the Games will suck you back into Snarry! I know there are going to be some great stories coming your way, soon!

New with me, not too much. We did raise over $1000 for Friday night so THANKYOU for helping with that! *hugs tightly* We were one of the best fundraisers in Ontario!

Hello! *hugs*

Hehe, shiny fandoms happen. I found a shiny fandom in NFL RPS, or sports rpf in general. Soooo shiny.

*forgives you* I'm getting more and more into various anime/manga fandoms (Fullmetal Alchemist, xxxHolic, Kyou Kara Maou, and so many others) too so I don't blame you at all, I still read my Snarry pretty regularly, but I spend most of my free time watching anime and reading manga rather than HP fanfiction. Real life has been crazy this whole second semester for me. Lovely cats, it would be interesting to see what would happen were you to try and sneak them in, lol.~Sophia

Cat Heaven (art by Kliban)

So that's where you disappeared to! Bad Toy. Don't get lost like that again, please.

Are you coming to Terminus? I hope so. And if so, see you there; my brother's coming with me, and we're doing RTW #2 (for me, at least) June-August, most of it in the UK, but with visits to New York and Los Angeles. We'll be in Chicago Tue 5 - Wed 13 August (though that includes flying time).

I haven't been doing much (in my usual style) except that I managed to write three longish fics for the various Valentine's/spring fic exchanges. No Snarry, but. That was my Smutmas fic.

Your family seems to be doing very well! That's good. Work sounds regrettably normal. The cats look as if they've forgiven you for skiving off to Sectus and Prophecy.

Missed you!

Can't tell any tales or new 'cos my life is devoured by work, but Parlophone and I went to Madrid for a week. Was fab!

Aww, cats! *a puddle of goo where pj just sat* Mine does it too, all the time. But try to get her into the cat's carrier bag and she's nowhere to be found.

Snape and Harry

I was wondering where you were! I sent a couple of e-mails, but I'm not sure if they got through or not. Nice to see a post from you.

I've found a shiny new fandom, too (Torchwood), but I haven't deserted the Snarry. I think it's dying a slow death, though, with a last little hurrah coming up with the Snarry Games.

The kitties always know when we're leaving, don't they? My little one was sitting out in the drive-way when we left on Friday, and was waiting at the front door when we arrived home earlier today. :-)

I can't blame you for hanging out in the PoT crew because I've spent much of my time reading Stargate Atlantis. Hey, we've all got to get our crack where we find it!

To summarise the last few months: work is ultra-busy, I have a new cat and I finished my Snarry Games fic last night ::woot::

Hey, I'm not in Snarry fandom any more. Kitties are shiny enough for me!

I wanted to give you this cheery lovely post yesterday, about how good it is to hear from you and I haven't watched any PoT yet but it's on my list, honest, and then...oh, god, yesterday.

It does, though, make me wanna hug you all the harder and tell you even MORE how good it is to hear from you. I miss you. *hugs hugs hugs*

*hugs*! Yeah, I've been away, too--with that "real life" fandom. Visitors from far-flung places, mom's b'day, bf's band practice, etc and so forth. Life in the big city. staying away from compy as to rest my back.
I'll be at terminus, with my sweetie. Must book room and air! ;p

I kept checking my flist here on IJ thinking that I hadn't managed to friend you properly because you were so conspicuously missing from my reading! I'm glad you're just caught up by the shiny and nothing worse. I am currently distracted by a yaoi mangaka writer myself that no one else has discovered yet, for the most part, so I know the feeling of being hooked by those wily Japanese fandoms!

Glad to see you online again.

I was in NYC last weekend and we had a fannish meetup that I just posted about.

PoT is awesomeness and about as addictive as the name suggests, though I'm hanging on to Snarry fandom as well.

This is a shameless self-plug but the subrosa_tennis fics are up over on lj (though it looks like the rest of your flist might kill me for encouraging you XD).

Your cats are cute
