Because all the cool kids are doing it  

This was what cynicalpirate and I have been at for the last few months. I assumed she'd be around to do the pimping part, but it seems not until tomorrow. As for the crime of posting two long fics in as many days, yeah, guilty as charged. Who cares? If you read it, bully for you. If not, you've saved yourself wasting a few hours -- or minutes, if you're a speed-reader or something. (See, this is why I wanted Duke to do it; I am physically incapable of lying well enough to say good stuff about my writing that would encourage reading of said stuff. Her bits were well cool, though. And there's art.)

It's our thing for the Big Bang H/D challenge, in other words. Thanks to imadra_blue for making me cry beta'ing, and to all the artists who drew for it. They are: celestialsoda, adora_spintriae, djinniyah, glockgal, __hibiscus, nix___, sherant and spaggel. The art's bloody brilliant, lads. Worth writing the damn thing for. Have to say, though, that this was my favourite, 'cause it just summed up what I think we were trying to capture in the story -- a bit of a laugh, in all and anyways as our friend Mr C. Farrell would say. ;) Just looking at it cheered me up. .

*takes a deep breath* I think I may just go and read my very first (okay, second but I didn't like the first one) H/D fic. (and only because you & cynicalpirate wrote it). What is the world coming to?

I don't think me writing it is a good reason to read it. But the art is luverly. :)

I can't wait to read it! I think I'm going to enjoy it a lot because I read the notes and you were upfront about cliche, and *deliberate* cliche is something I love. :> Plus I peeked at the art and I cannot wait to find out what the fuck was Crookshanks doing there. ;)

Dude, yours is first on my list! It may take me a while to read and review though, but I'll get there, eventually. At the moment, anatomy and physiology PWN me. Had a freakin' breakdown this morning. My mother thought it would be helpful to show me how to take blood from the vein in your elbow, WHILE I WAS EATING BREAKFAST. Needless to say, it wasn't helpful AT ALL.

Okay, um. Yes. Fics! Sure I knew you'd own this challenge; your Draco is canon, 'nuff said. :)))

skdj;ksdgj;gk loved this fic. Like, a lot. You are evil geniuses. (Genii?)
Went on at, uh, more length about why here. :> I assume this is the official pimp post of this fic, so both of you will see my rather incoherent review if I link ya here. Hopefully. Mwah. <3333

Geniuses. :) It came up in one of our convos, I'm absolutely certain.

Like I told someone else, I had a really shitty day. Then I was lookin' at the art and it made me smile, and then your review made me tear, because it was like "Someone likes it! Maybe life doesn't totally suck!" By which it is evident that I'm about as balanced as a bungee rope, but yeah. LOVE?!! Me and Duke is to be married (wedding plans include, at the mo, a yurt and fox babies in tiaras) but you'd be my first choice for a last fling, right now. :)

Vicky Pollard!! *le snerk*

Hello! Like, OH MY GOD! I just read Queen of Hearts. It was fucking hilarious! Belinda will forever be, like, in my heart for all time. Seriously though, the tongue in cheek humor was absolutely brilliant. Hoovering, cigarettes, poker games, and that awesome brick, Susan Bones. I loved it! I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud while reading this fic. I think the phrase "menopausal basilisk" will stay with me a VERY long time. And your Harry was sooo great. I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU GOT EYELINER TO WORK. Damn, that was hilarious. And I'm not one for OC's, but Smythe was one interesting fella. This is definitely an h/d I will read again :) It was a fun ride, wasn't it?

Me'n Duke have a thing for Billie Joe Armstrong, yanno, the lead singer from Green Day? That was where the eyeliner originated. *points to icon* I'm glad that people like Lovebright, I got the impression that she was hateable. :)

We had good craic writing it, all right! I can't wait to read yours, and the others, as well, whenever some time god decides to give me some. xD

My username was "the storytelling ape" for a while, so gibbering fits in well. :) Or do I mean gibbons? *sits quietly while brain explodes*

I've no idea who you mean! *laughs* But it appears we have the same first name. I'm Rachel, too. Or, around here, "Racial (abuse optional)". 8D
