Hello fandom!

I'm so sorry I've been so far away the past few weeks. My grandmother has been nearing the end of her life for the past month and I knew my birthday was going to be a hard time.

Nobody in my family (at home) remembered it and that was a bit of a punch to the gut, but then, as I get older, I'm not asking for much more than an acknowledgement. But fandom swooped in and blew me away and my birthday wasn't bad at all.

I received 60 well wishes in the forms of email, tumblr messages, lj pms, virtual gifts, lj posts, facebook posts, facebook IMs, and gifty things. So Thank you for that! Really it means the world to me. The Saturday after my birthday with my mom, grandma, family and uncle was bittersweet. It was a happy birthday/so long grandma party and you can imagine the awkward feels that inspired.

Anyway. I received word from my mother that my grandmother passed at 11:15 this morning after taking her death with dignity prescription and it was wonderful news. And my fandom friend [ profile] slr2moons and I were out on our weekly walk when I got the news, so that was nice. I turned to her and said, "you know, I've been grieving for the past 3 weeks and now that it's over, all I feel is relief and thankfulness that she's not suffering and went on her own terms." Cancer is a motherfucking bitch and I feel really blessed that my grandma had the opportunity to take care of her affairs, to say goodbye, and to just let go before it wrecked her with more pain than anyone should have to feel.

Okay... jeez, mab... enough depressing.

Look at the birthday gifts my lovely friends did for me! Thank you all for being so unique and wonderful. The collective creativity and caring in fandom is magical. It's precious. Thank you.

And thank you, too, mods, [ profile] kitty_fic and [ profile] vaysh. You are such wonderful people to bring fandom together in creating and sharing. I appreciate your hard work and dedication!

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 [ 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.


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

[ 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 [ profile] saras_girl and her lovely wife, [ 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 [ 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!!!


[ 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 [ 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. [ 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 [ 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 [ 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!

First off, thank you [ 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!

I have been around on chatzy, but have sadly neglected my journal as I am prone to do. I have this phobia that nobody gives a shit what I have to say anyway, so why bother posting? *sigh* Must overcome old defense mechanisms.

Thanks to [Bad username or site: @], [Bad username or site: @], [Bad username or site: @], [Bad username or site: @], [Bad username or site: @], [Bad username or site: @], [Bad username or site: @], [Bad username or site: @], and [Bad username or site: @] for all the pumpkin cookies.

You all made my day and make me feel loved! I appreciate every one of you more than words can express!
