Dearest, dearest beffeysue!

It has been an absolute joy to know you these past few years.
I have been on LJ so little since 2009 that I can't remember how to add fancy pictures!

So I hope this one will suffice (birthday cupcakes I baked back in October) , and I wish you the HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS!

Lá breithe shona duit, a chara.

Joe (who was 16 at the weekend - where does the time go?) is in the middle of his mock/trial Junior Cert (think GCSEs, or OWLs).
He is highly intelligent and very studious and RIDICULOUSLY stressed. Honestly, it really is like living with Hermione Granger.
He got 9 A grades in first year. 9 A grades in second year. 9 A grades in the Christmas exams. Despite half of those exams being, to quote Joe, "complete disasters". There's an A grade pattern here. But Joe can't seem to see it. Sigh. I can't wait for these exams to end ... I want my life back.

Anywho ... In other news, chapter 2 of Denial is up, along with chapter 1 of Affected Recollections.

You can find them here:

And finally, I am really, really enjoying being back in the fandom. Y'all are a lovely bunch of ladies.

Go raibh maith agaibh!

To whomever sent me the virtual red carpet, thank you! 

You made me laugh and feel all warm and fuzzy. :D

Okay. I took a deep breath, did a bit of editing, and ... Denial is back! :D

Am nervous.




And it's now on The Maple Bookshelf too:

I was writing about my experiences of fanfiction today, and in exploring my SS/HG past, it really brought home how much I've been missing you guys.

I absolutely love writing my original stories ... and dealing with my lovely agent ... and editing  ... and still hoping for a publisher. But boy, do I miss the fandom and the support and friendship of you all.

I still get requests for copies of Denial, would you believe! And for the most part, I oblige.

And I think I'll start reposting it soon, maybe. It would be very nice to back in this lovely community.

Much love and hugs,

They're at it again!

This time it's been happening a

I've left a message there asking people not to distribute it, pls, kthnxbai.

Also found out it was available to download at http://forum.writingcenter4.info, but they kindly removed it.

Now, I know it was translated into German, Russian, Hungarian, Finnish, Lithuanian, Slovakian and one or two other languages, and apart from the German and Russian sites, I never really kept tabs. My bad. I can't do anything about that. And they're just the people who asked permission. You put something on the net, you can't really control it. Watcha gonna do, eh?

To be honest, it's not a problem. I don't think it will ever be a problem. 

But these people could at LEAST have the decency to ask my permission, that's what got to me, I think.

UPDATE: Got a VERY nice message from the lady who had given it out promising she won't do it again. :)
She really was very decent about it, which is lovely.

Dear friends,

I need your help! It has just come to my attention that someone by the name of Ms Tree on Potter Place (what IS Potter Place?) is distributing hard copies of Denial without my permission. She's even editing it, by all accounts. Cheek! 

Now, if people are going to be that nasty, there's nothing I can do to stop them, but can anyone point me in the right direction of what to do/where to go?

And if anyone knows her, or anyone who has been given a copy, I'd prefer if they DIDN'T know why I took the stories down - It might make them all the more likely to hang on to them/distribute them more!


UPDATE: Okay - I've left a post about it at Potter Place - If anyone is a member and could pop along to Potter Place and show some support, I would be eternally grateful!

Happy New Year, my LJ lovelies.
I know I am largely absent from your lives these days, but I will never forget any of you.
I'm very excited about 2011, and I hope this year brings good things to you all.
