wook77: (blow up fandom)
Holy shit, I haven't done a real introduction since 2007 (here though I've obviously edited since then).

As I get new friends from the H50 Friending Meme, I thought I'd update to a new introduction.

Now tell me about you!

I know I don't have many het fans on the flist BUT... I have GOT to rec a fic from [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus.

I am, of course, still in love with my gift!fic.

However, this fic - What Makes All The Difference (Seamus/Padma, rated: r and is a long one) is absolutely brilliant. This is the 7th Year story I've been waiting to read. It's got an amazing characterization of Seamus (with Finnigan spelled properly, too! It's the small things that sometimes make or break a fic), a brilliant empathetic, scared and human Padma and a wibbly about leadership Neville. I adore the way that the story moves along, the little situations that crop up, the little rebellions and how not everyone is able to rebel. It shows the good parts of almost all the houses (let's face it, it's a rare day where a Slytherin is shown in a good light, unfortunately).

I love this story because Padma isn't just some brain like I've read far too many Ravenclaw characters portrayed as. Instead, she's a girl, a sometimes silly girl that giggles and cares about her looks or whatever. She's just spot-on, a beautiful mix of brains and beauty.

Seamus is just brilliant as well. He's rebellious and loyal and courageous. I am so in love with the way that he stands up to the Carrows, grinning and bearing the problems.

Neville steps up, as well, but not without wondering if he can do it. The Neville in this story was very similar to the Neville in the one that I received in that he had fears but he faced them and did an amazing job at it.

The flirtations and the pacing of the story is just about perfect as well. Seriously and utterly brilliant as a story. Go read it, even if you don't like het. Just skip the naughty bits (of which, there isn't all that many). This is mainly a gen story with the romance as a sideline.

I utterly and completely adore this story.

And now that I've rec'd this - bed.

I'm in a spammy mood. Sorry but not really.

Had my review... it went really really well so thank you all so very very much for the great wishes and thoughts.

I'm uber uber annoyingly happy right now like you wouldn't believe... like I've NEVER been this squeeful except those two times I was proposed to and the one time when I dumped the motherfucker. See my icon? That's about what I'm doing in my seat. No, seriously, I'm bouncing and I don't fucking bounce so mock while the mocking's good *eyes feei*.

SOOOOOOO< YAYES. Not only that but I was expecting an increase of about 2.8% cause, err, I spend my work hours lj'ing and not actually working. Instead, I got 4.3%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


My boss graded me higher than I graded myself during my self review too! SCORE!

Now, though? *braces for teh Universe to smite me for being happy*

Oh, fuck it, it's a good day! How are all you all?!

OMG, before I forget... the other thing making me happy? The fandom love meme at [livejournal.com profile] legomymalfoy's lj - goooooooo look for love! Seriously, OMG, SO MUCH LOVE from and for you all! YAYES!

And now that I'm annoying even myself with the overusage of caps and exclamation points, I'll leave it here. THANK YOU!!!!!! (ok, I couldn't resist)
