blamebrampton: 15th century woodcut of a hound (Default)
A very big thank you to [personal profile] micolerose  for my lovely rubber duckie! I will be diving into the bath in a minute and will toss in his non-virtual counterparts in homage!

The reason that I originally took up lj was because my lovely friend GBrampton, aka [profile] dumbys_baby, lured me to the dark side by having a birthday, or perhaps going away for a few months ... something that deserved a nice present at any rate. But I was out of ideas. The one thing I could remember her saying wasn't "I crave a red mandolin for the kitchen", rather: "Don't knock fanfic until you've read, or better yet, written some."

So I did, both. And while I still would not describe myself as a fan, I am a convert to fic. You've heard me rave before about the talent and the generosity of fandom, so I won't repeat it all here, but it has been an experience that I would not have missed. And I have had some really unmissable experiences in my life to calibrate by. Of course, the past tense there is purely for effect, as if nothing else, I have WIPs and a sense of how cranky people will be if I never finish them. Unlike some people *cough Shadow of his Wings, cough*.

Alas, this is not the fic update you are probably looking for, but it is the next part of that story I began for GB. And I'll post again in a few minutes with a small gift for those lovely people who have nagged, harrangued, wondered how Fathers is going recently (and not so recently).

Title: These Fragile Bonds (GB's Story) 4/?
Author: [personal profile] blamebrampton 
Summary: Dumbledore's death drives two points home to Harry. The first is that he can never go home again. The second is that he wholly failed  to understand Draco Malfoy. One rescue, some unplanned shagging and a battle to the death later, both points are still true. Set directly after HBP.
Rating: PG this chapter. Up to a light R overall
Words this chapter
: 5505 (23,300 so far in total)
Disclaimer
: Absolutely nothing to do with Jo Rowling, Bloomsbury, Scholastic or any other media titans. But affectionately nicked from all of the above.
Author's notes: Thank you so much to [personal profile] anthimaeria for her lightning-fast edit of the first four chapters of this section, the remaining blunders are all my own work. I completely failed to get it to the wonderful [personal profile] jadzialove in anything approaching reasonable time, so check back in a day or two if typos cut to the quick.

Many, many thanks to dear GB, who was so right. I will be much faster with the next bit as the lads fall back into bed there and rescue me from the necessity of plot for a few lines!

Most of all, thank you Flist for making this such an enjoyable, enlightening and intriguing year. Here's to the next one!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [personal profile] jadzialove !!! Inspired by your fantastic and brilliant A Snarry Christmas Carol, I bring you a feeble gift, which will be filled with idiotic errors and typos because I could hardly turn to my favourite beta on this one. I even snuck a moment of Snarry in -- you have turned me, woman! And it's still the 22nd there! So I feel no great guilt about my tardiness (which is epic). And now I can finally read Cyn's genius Snarry present to you!

And a complete side note, but I know that this will make you laugh, I have only JUST worked out that Ron Paul is not the same person as Ru Paul. I'm really not paying enough attention to American politics this year …

Anyway, your physical present is terribly late, but here's the other one!


Title It's a Blunderful Life
Author [personal profile] blamebrampton
Characters Draco/Harry, but also Harry/Snape, a not really ghostly Dumbledore, Pansy, Narcissa, Ginny, Andromeda and Teddy
Rating Possibly a PG for extreme bonkersedness
Words 5777
Notes I had this idea weeks ago, and thought I would have loads of time to write it up and polish it and do other nice things that would make it a worthy present for such a great woman and generous friend. Alas, it has been written in late-night stints over the last two nights and represents the very best combination of chocolate-fuelled madness and sleep deprivation. Next year I promise you a sensible story! With more Snarry! Thank you so much for the betaing, but thank you a thousand times more for the friendship!








PS While agonising my way through this in the last few hours (because I could procrastinate for Christendom, not just one measly country!), Calanthe stopped by to give me a loving serve of abuse, which indirectly led to me reading her beautiful Christmas fic The Ghost of Christmas Past. Click and adore, it's truly gorgeous and heartbreaking.

I'd just like to know how it became 4am again.

Right, so this is the post HBP, completely AU to DH fic that came out of the very first fic I ever wrote. It began as a present for Gillian Brampton aka[profile] dumbys_baby, and then it grew. And now it's an alternative to seven in my head and will probably end up being about as long, so if you hate the WIP, stay clear! I have some next-gen one-shots underway if you're looking for a light diversion.

The same people die, not in the same ways for the most part, and there are Hallows. This is what happens when you begin writing with influenza! But at least it has a real title now!

Title: These Fragile Bonds 3/?
Author:[personal profile] blamebrampton
Characters: as in DH, lots of H/D, plus other canon-established couples
Rating: PG this chapter, adult themes. Up to a light R overall
Words: 6565
Notes: Absolutely nothing to do with Jo Rowling, Bloomsbury, Scholastic or any other media titans. But affectionately nicked from all of the above.

Thanks to[profile] dumbys_babyfor beta-ing, inspiring and nagging. You were right, fandom is a delicious place and I am loving it.
