Hello Livejournal. I hope you all had a stellar Halloween.

I thought I'd make another update post because if I don't, I'll just float off even more.

I don't feel much like talking about all the stuff I'm dealing with day to day. It's not hugely awful or anything, but it is making me realize that I am still struggling with ADHD and focus, to the point I've pared down my responsibilities enormously and still struggle to get shit done.

Blah.

Enough about that. I want to share some fun pictures. Halloween was yesterday and I did nothing more than answer the door a few times (my daughter answered the rest), but I got to do it in costume! Putting on a costume is totally an adventure on its own for me. Unfortunately, nobody in my family can take flattering photos. So, Selfies it is!

This was my second year dressing up like Sally Ragdoll (from Nightmare Before Christmas).

I'm just gonna stick these pics under a tag and then I have to get back to poking my brain and catching the words that come out of it. I have a deadline and I have to break through this block. No excuses.

Whew... That was fun. If you dressed in costume, I'd love to see! Wish me luck and muse juice, please.

Love you, F-list! Stay chill. *hugs*

Hey all!

I really have been away for a while and I'm sorry for that. I've been engrossed by the PJO/HoO (Percy Jackson and the Olymians / Heroes of Olympus) fandom and they're all on tumblr. - If ever you're looking for me, you can find me there as mab-speaks. I also run a ship blog for the fandom's ultimate bromance to romance duo - jercyjuice and I've taken up Arting in an effort to grow my skills and have a creative outlet when the words just aren't coming. My art blog is mabscribbles.

I've been writing up a storm the past several months. I counted my words made so far in that fandom starting 7 months ago and it's: 190,365 ... so yeah, a lot. I've also made a few podfics and started a PJO writer/artist 18+ chat room. It's keeping me very busy.

In the world of HP, the third annual HP Horror Fest just posted reveals at [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkarts and it was a blast to mod. I made art for it. Disturbing art. I kept with my tradition of torturing poor Teddy Lupin. (I only torture my favorite characters)

I'll stick it under a spoiler tag if you'd rather not see. TW: blood, self harm.

Summary: As a Metamorphmagus, Teddy Lupin has always struggled with what he "actually" looks like. In a moment of insanity he decides to find out for himself.



Teddy Horror.jpg



See it on Ao3

It was my first attempt ever at using a tablet to color - and my tablet is obsolete. Still, I think it effectively got the horror message I was going for across. *wry smile*

In other news related to art, there's a new daily drawing community on dreamwidth started by a local writing buddy of mine and I'm having fun participating and drawing for the prompts. All doodles are PG-13 and under and can be from any fandom. There's no limit to how often or infrequent members participate either.

So check it out if you're interested. I see a lot of improvement in my ability in just the past month from drawing something every day.



Here was my doodle for today:

This is Nico di Angelo, son of Hades, just waking up. He's normally pretty brooding and not a morning person. Just figures that the only clean mug he can find was left by Will Solace, son of Apollo. Maybe after he's had his morning coffee, Nico will be in more of a sunshine mood. :P

...

I've booked my tickets for my summer fangirl trip to London! I'll be staying with [livejournal.com profile] writcraft and have plans to meet up with some other UK-rs too! Can't wait. I'll be flying out on 30 July and coming home on 7 August.

All right. I think that's enough for an update right now. I have to run my daughter's friend home in a sec. I miss you f-list, and I promise I'm not going to be away forever. I'm just following where my muse is leading and I trust that eventually it will return me to HP. Hogwarts will always be home. XD

Holy bleeping Shiznitz! I seem to have had a really productive year. Considering I started 2014 with a huge case of writer's block and decided to not sign up for fests, but instead to just do podfics and modding, I somehow wrote a total of 193,605 words and recorded a little more than 56 hours of podfic. O.O

Thank you fandom for being so inspiring!
mab: mab cosplays (sexy wexy)
Reveals happened at [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost and I'm feeling so very thankful today!

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] enchanted_jae, [livejournal.com profile] capitu, and [livejournal.com profile] anemonen for the wonderful gifts! I really appreciate them! *holds them close*

A Glut of Gifts Drabble and art! By [livejournal.com profile] enchanted_jae

The Mirror by [livejournal.com profile] anemonen A fan art gift to go with my fic Broken Dreams And as soon as reveals go up, I'm going to add it to the fic because it's too perfect not to display and share with future readers!

[livejournal.com profile] capitu gave me beta assistance as my [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost gift and I cannot thank her enough!

And thank you, too, mods, [livejournal.com profile] kitty_fic and [livejournal.com profile] vaysh. You are such wonderful people to bring fandom together in creating and sharing. I appreciate your hard work and dedication!
mab: mab cosplays (sexy wexy)
I want to thank everybody who remembered me this holiday season and I'm sorry this post is so late. I've been waiting for reveals to happen at [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost before posting, but it seems they are taking some time, so I'll just post about what I received and gave later.

Cards:

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] hikarievandar, [livejournal.com profile] lyonessheart, [livejournal.com profile] candamira, [livejournal.com profile] mayfly_78, [livejournal.com profile] chibitoaster, [livejournal.com profile] sksdwrld, [livejournal.com profile] leemarchais, [livejournal.com profile] jad, [livejournal.com profile] digthewriter, [livejournal.com profile] lokifan, [livejournal.com profile] anemonen, [livejournal.com profile] groolover, [livejournal.com profile] winnett, [livejournal.com profile] kitty_fic, [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl, [livejournal.com profile] writcraft for sending me cards. There's a picture of them below!







[livejournal.com profile] groolover sent me a calendar along with her holiday card. It is THE best ever! I've shared it with all my friends that have visited this past month. The agree it's awesome. It is a calendar featuring [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl and her lovely wife, [livejournal.com profile] dannyfranx in their natural habitat of unusual pets and odds and ends.

And I want to thank all the people who signed up for my holiday card list this year! You helped me break last years number of sent cards! I enjoy shopping for fandom related cards and odds and ends so much and nothing makes me happier than sending them to people who are important to me and will appreciate them as much as I do. I also try to buy them from fandom artists because that's the best.

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] saladbats sent me a lovely post owl necklace and card!











If you sent me a card and I missed you on this list, I'm so sorry. Poke me and let me know. I tried really hard to keep my cards together as they arrived, but with holiday mail and all the things that go along with real life business, I know I've been scatterbrained.

Last year I sent 25 cards to fandom friends and this year... dun dun dun... 41!!!

Fanarts:

[livejournal.com profile] chibitoaster finished an illustration for my fic Where Your Treasure Lies and it's now updated with the other art she did for it and I'm over the moon by how beautiful they both are.







Also I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] nherizu for doing fanart from my ficlet Under Her Skin as a pay-it-forward gift. The art is in the fic and links to her full size post on Ao3. Thank you!!! I love it, bb!

I spent a lovely New Year's Eve with my dear friend Lacey and her fiancée, Sierra. [livejournal.com profile] dawnlett and I met her at 2013 LeakCon and snatched her up and adopted her. I am very much looking forward to this summer when I visit all the lovely people at [livejournal.com profile] hp_uk_meetup.







Okie Dokie! Thanks everybody for being an awesome community. The Harry Potter fandom is still so strong and through it I've made some lifelong friends. I know I can count on many more years of making future friends through it too and that is just AWESOME!

... I'll probably post my 2014 year-in-review after the [livejournal.com profile] harrybang goes live. I seem to have created a hell of a lot more words and hours of podfic than I realized, now that I've compiled it all. :P

Catch you all later! It's back to proofreading for me!
mab: mab cosplays (sexy wexy)
Hello f-list!

I'm sorry I've been so distant the past couple of months. I do this every year, but this year I've been feeling especially hermit-like. My time alone is really short lately and as much as I'd love to be around more in fandom, I just can't right now. Life things are looking up, but they're taking a hell of a lot of time and attention to make sure they keep going in a forward direction. I know you all will understand that. XD *hugs all the lovely people* If you're curious as to what's been happening to draw me away so much, I'll give a quick rundown in the spoiler cuts below. If you're not really interested in some areas, and would just like to know what the heck my plans are for future HP fandom participation, skip to the cut: Harry Potter Fandom.



My daughter: She's doing really well since we started in DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy). Most of the kids in her therapy group are going through it because of eating disorders or self-harm, and she's not in that boat at all, so I'm very thankful. I am attending the therapy as part of a parent group, which is really helping me a lot to brush up on the skills I learned (that really got me started out of my darkest days in the mental health system). I like that the teen group isn't allowed to talk in group about why exactly they are there (so they don't feed off each other's maladaptive behaviors, but they do also have individual sessions, so those things are addressed. I get weekly email reports from her advisor at school and since we've started this therapy, she's only had positives to report.

Exercise/Fitness: I've not been doing fantastic with keeping up on this, but as of Tuesday, I'm still heading in the right direction. Since my last measurements I'm down a bit, but not at the pace I had been going. Still, I think it's healthy to slow up every so often, let the body find its normal, then start again with the intense training. I will write up a fitness post for those on my weightloss filter in a little while. Not gonna go into detail here.

Son: My son is going to be 13 in 2 days! OMG! I can't even believe that he'll be a teen. He is my child who has high-functioning autism. I went to his student-led conference last month and then had 2 conferences with the school board about his qualifications for special services. (they do this every few years). I'm so proud of how far he's grown and how much he's improved regarding school performance since we started him at the private school. His private school is tailored for kids with learning differences and most of the kids are somewhere on the spectrum. He's recently decided he wants to wear his hair long-ish. I think it looks great. Considering my husband's hair is down his back, I have no issues with how a person wants to wear their hair. I'm loving mine short, and eventually I plan to shave it all off again, just because I can, and because I love rocking the bald head look. :P (it also grows insanely fast and the bald look never lasts long for me.)

Toddler: The toddler has been a handful lately. He's three and a half and doesn't want to potty train. He's still nursing a couple of times a day, which is fine, I have no problems with going at his pace, but I am looking forward to reclaiming my boobs as MINE. It will happen. This too shall pass. But overall, he's a smart little duck and comes up with the most interesting observations. Last night, after a drawn out refusal to go to sleep in his own bed (which he later changed his mind about) he was lying beside me and pointing at the shadow cast by the ceiling lamp. He said goodnight to me, daddy, the pictures, the window, the door, and the (fish robot) he swears the shadow looks like. XD

Housemate: Our housemate is still with us and I am glad of it. She watches the toddler while I take my daughter to our group sessions on Thursdays. My husband is also home (as he works from home) but it's a real blessing to not have to figure out child care. She was 257 on the waiting list for the women's shelter back in September and has now moved up to the mid-40s, so this too is a good thing. When she gets a spot, they'll be able to help her with getting the services that just aren't freely given in this fucked up world we live in and I'm happy she won't have been on the streets during the winter season of waiting.

Husband: Husband is plugging along, doing his thing. We chat in the evening before bed and catch up on what's what. We're dealing with unexpected expenses from my emergency root canal and an insurance company refusing to cover them, but it could be so much worse, and we're thankful and fortunate to not be in a real hardship.

The hugest time suck of my day to day is driving. I loathe driving. Ever since I was hit by a car at 18, I swore I'd never drive ... and then my mom guilted me into doing it when I was pregnant with my daughter (because you have to be able to drive if you're a mom). Anyway... Now I'm driving nearly 3 hours a day, just taking my kids to school and back.. and on therapy days, it's more like 4.5 hours because of traffic and everything is on opposite sides of town from everything else. Blah. Humbug.




The Harry Big Bang is gearing up! OMG! I'm way excited about this! I am looking forward to submissions coming in and preparing to find every single spare minute I can to start proofreading! It's gonna be awesome!

My goal for podficcing the 300+k fic Turn by [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl all in 2014 is now complete! Turn the Podfic! I've sent the sound file to my lovely hosting person and will have it posted after she gets back to me with the link. I have so many feels about finishing this project. It was a true labor of love. I think the entire thing maxes out at almost 37 hours. It took at least 4 times as many hours to record and edit (and that's being generous with estimating, it was likely more). So, yeah... Whew! *wipes sweat from brow*

And now for some sadder news. I'm going to be using 2015 as a sort of hiatus year from fests. I'm still planning to co-mod [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkarts with [livejournal.com profile] writcraft and the [livejournal.com profile] hp_podfic_fest with [livejournal.com profile] starduchess, but as far as writing goes, my muse is not on HP right now. I do have several HP podfic projects planned for this coming year, but I will likely not be taking on any more until my hiatus ends. I'm also still going to the the [livejournal.com profile] hp_uk_meetup this summer and cannot wait to meet all the fandom friends that will be there. I suspect my HP squee will be back up in full force by then! So this hiatus is really only a break from participating in fests and it will end in 2016 in time for Leviosa the Harry Potter 2016 convention in Las Vegas! I'm so there!

I don't think I'll be in my quiet space for much longer. I really love all of you on my f-list and enjoy keeping up with all your news and chatting, etc... So even though I'm taking a break, I'm not leaving.

And I sent the last of my holiday cards today, so if you haven't got one yet and signed up for one, it's on its way! And my goal of beating last year's number of cards sent was met and more than doubled! So thank you for that! Sending cards is something that makes me so happy!





For those of you who follow me on tumblr at Mab-speaks or Mab-shares will have noticed, I've fallen into a new fandom as far as writing goes. I seem to have an all or nothing muse, and I can't juggle more than one canon and set of characters at a time. I completed my first fic for the Percy Jackson fandom late last month. It's called Shelter and is 71,505 words. I wrote it a chapter a day from mid-October through November and I haven't let go of it yet. I had to end it where I did to free up December and January for the Harry Big Bang, but I have three Shelterverse one-shots planned, the first is posted: Atonement and it pairs the greek god, Apollo with Zephyros, the god of the West Wind. The next will be my first go at a femslash pairing and the last is going to be the main pairing that featured in Shelter. After that, in February, I'm planning to begin the sequel.

I have too many feels and ideas and my head is just brimming to the point I have 3 documents filled with notes, canon/head canons, and partial outlines. I've never felt so freaking prolific in my life and it's just something I can't ignore or stifle. So I'm going with it and will find out where it gets me.

And see the pretty cover art made for me for Shelter... The artist is called St00pz and can be found on tumblr.



Another artist was inspired by the fic too and created this art Nico di Angelo gets a new jacket. And I've had two other people ask permission to fan art from the fic. OMG... so much squee!



All right ... and if you made it through all that, thank you. If you didn't, I don't blame you. Please don't feel guilty. I just want to give you all a heads up as to where I've been, why I'm quiet, and what my plans are. I love you all and I hold the fact true to my heart that Hogwarts will always be home, and I can never stay away forever.

First off, thank you [livejournal.com profile] digthewriter for sending me a wonderfully corny Halloween card!

*squishes you to death* *reanimates you*

Second, I have succumbed to a major tempting bit of fanfiction that takes place post Blood of Olympus in the PJO & HoO series. I'm way too excited by this and the prospect of getting to tag my fic "BoO HoO spoilers".

But as the series only ended last week, I have nobody to talk to about all the things, and I'm intimidated by tumblr. Have any of you f-listers read all the books? Anybody able/willing to talk/beta for me? The fic I'm writing will be a bit fluffy, a bit filthy, and canon inspired.

Thought I'd try here first before braving the treacherous waters of tumblr!

Notes: I wrote this fic last year for an a/b/o fest and it was HARD! This (creature/mates) cliche isn't my usual cuppa, though I find it hot as hell, and I found it a real challenge to write it in a way that worked for me. Now, it's my most successful fic on Ao3 (mind boggles) and with the added bonus of the gorgeous cover art by [livejournal.com profile] citrus_lime, I hope it makes for a successful podfic.
Author's summary: It's not easy to make a living when your past misdeeds colour your life, but when the saviour of the wizarding world offers a possible way out, Draco Malfoy isn't stupid enough to let the opportunity pass.

For all who haven't seen yet, [livejournal.com profile] chibitoaster, fan artist extraordinaire is back on lj! YAY! And she's being a hero and rescuing a poor sweet injured kitty cat because that's what you do. But the baby needs surgery to have her hip pinned and leg amputated if she's going to have any sort of life and working overseas on a teacher's salary is hard to cover an emergency surgery like this.

I'm planning to write up another weight loss/fitness update soon. (If you're not on my weight loss filter and want to be, let me know in a comment or by PM)


I've been working hard at getting my daughter enrolled in high school and making sure she gets all the support that I can get for her. I'm looking into a summer program for kids her age that addresses social anxiety in a therapeutic/group sort of fun setting.

She's mentioned that she wants help with overcoming her shyness. This weekend my mom took her to see Maleficent and they ran into three girls she's been friendly with since kindergarten, one of them she counts as her best friend, but mom told me she just froze up and couldn't really talk. That she wanted to, but later told mom she's afraid of saying the wrong thing and sounding dumb. :( These are all girls I know personally too and they aren't the judgy-pushy types. They're all proud feminists and are receptive to hanging out with Gwen. It kills me that it's so hard for her, but I really have to swallow it down and just support her in finding her own way. I can't fix it for her. And really, there's nothing wrong with being introverted. I just worry that it might begin to overwhelm her to a point where it is not healthy. *sigh* parenting is hard!





I broke my vow to not participate in writing for fests this year and claimed a prompt for Glompfest at [livejournal.com profile] serpentinelion It will be my third time participating. This has always been one of my favorite fests to write for and I'm really pumped about the story I'm working on. That said... Anybody willing to alpha read/cheerlead for me while I write it? (sorted) I'm hoping to get it all done this month, since I'm on a mod vacation from [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkarts. If you are willing, let me know either in a comment, PM, or email.

Hrm... what else.

I've not had much time at all for reading/commenting and that makes me sad. I'm hoping that once school is out for the summer, I'll have more time again. I do have several recs I need to finish writing and post them here and on my tumblr.

I've been hard at work on podficcing chapter nine of Turn this month. I finally finished the 2nd round of edits and sent it to [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl for pre-listening. One more round of edits when I get it back and it will be up and posted. Chapter nine is the longest one yet. Nearly 3 hours!

I'm getting really excited for the Harry Big Bang at [livejournal.com profile] harrybang! We're making plans to fancy up the comm and start pimping hard! Our next Author spotlight is coming up on 10 June and if you're not already watching the comm, I encourage you to start!

All right. That's all for now. I don't want to talk your ears off.

I feel so spoiled in a very lovely way. [livejournal.com profile] dustmouth was taking sketch requests earlier and she drew this lovely (and crack filled) art for me!

Take a look at all the request fills she did HERE if you haven't seen them already.

And then I don't think I ever shared this gift sketch in my journal, but [livejournal.com profile] saintgilbert drew a really cute H/D snuggle for me about 6 months ago. I think it's fitting to share it alongside Dustmouth's art.

Gil- HD


Thanks again, Gil! *snuggles you hard*

I saw this on my f-list and thought I'd borrow it. Sounds like fun, yes? If you see it here and want to do your own, link me in a comment so I can read it! XD Additionally, if you're not a writer but still want to play, just list snippets of other people's fics (credited) that fit the descriptions!
