Merry Christmas!

The church service last night was lovely, and for once we sang mostly unaltered carols -- they went so far as to print the original words in the order of service in order to avoid the edited versions in the hymnal. Ah, UUs. :-)

Also! The Yuletide stories are up!

I cannot (obviously) point you to the one I wrote, but here is the one written for me: Restante, a Westmark fanfic, in which Mickle writes two letters to Sparrow after the end of The Beggar Queen. It's lovely and faithful to the books, and it broke my heart just a little (in a good way).

The wonderful and talented Ellenlome has drawn two pictures for "Apartment Manager"/"Guardian"

The first is Yukiko and Naruto, probably shortly after the end of "Apartment Manager," or between chapter 17 and the epilogue.

The second is Naga in her chuunin outfit.

I am tickled pink. :-)

---------------------------------------------

In real life news, I am currently getting over a mild to moderate cold.

That means I was out sick for one day with a runny nose, sore throat, achy joints, mild headache, bone-deep tiredness, and my internal temperature regulation blown all to hell... but I was not absolutely wrung flat like a dishrag, nor did I get so congested I had to blow my nose every three minutes even after medication, nor did I run an actual fever, nor did I get a hacking cough. Those are symptoms of a major cold. :-)

(They're also symptoms of the flu, but then, I've never been able to tell the difference between a bad cold and a mild case of flu, since I have a tendency to get laid out absolutely flat by colds at least once or twice a year. Which is a much better average than when I was a kid -- then I got laid flat about every other month. Yuck.)

If I feel up to it, I may start dress-shopping for Cat's wedding tomorrow. There are a number of small boutiquey-type stores on or near the Commons that I can reach without a car, and I figure those are the best place to start.

The lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] kazeko drew a picture of Naga and Kafunnokaze being cute together!

Go tell her how wonderful she is!

They hit me too hard, you see. It's very hard to keep any sort of emotional or critical distance -- maybe through lack of practice, or maybe because a visual experience is just more intense in some ways.

In any case, my brain and life have been hijacked by Doctor Who.

See, I'd been seeing people talk about it for three years now, and I'd sort of picked up some basic notions of the world and story and characters, and I had some birthday money and two Borders discount coupons, and I was bored... and somehow this resulted, on Saturday evening, in me buying the DVD sets of seasons 1 and 2 of the new series.

I am happily drowning. :-)

I also think I'm going to buy season 3 ASAP, and if anyone can give me pointers for where to start with the old series (all 26 years of it, my god!), I would be eternally grateful.

...

This does mean that I haven't been writing a blessed thing for the last three days, and I probably won't be much use at writing for another week or so -- brain overload -- but I'm having so much fun I can't bring myself to care. :-)

Look! Look! [livejournal.com profile] iponly drew Sir Vladislav, the enchanted suit of armor who becomes Ginny's friend and confidant. Make sure to get the large view for the inscription on the pedestal.

---------------------------------------------

In other HP news, over the past two days I wrote chapter 3 of "Strange Likenesses," and 575 words of chapter 4. I last worked on that story in February of 2005. See, I don't leave stories unfinished forever. They may be on hiatus for quite some time, but I will finish them one of these days.

Except for "More or Less the Same," but I only write that one for my private amusement -- it was meant to be a self-insert, though the self-insert part kind of... mutated... after a chapter or two -- so that's different.
