Bugland and I have been working on ABP stuff (almost regularily now, yay) and there is a plot point that a while back we discussed changing.  The other day I realised the change really wouldn't work, so I turned to them to suggest we go back to the original idea.  First they said "no, absolutely not..." and then proceeded to explain that this was because Snape "believed in the cycle of life" and as such such would want to be eaten by "scavengers", like vultures in Tibet, and how would Harry feel about that, for that matter, how would *I* feel about it, given that we already have burial plots, and how would we ensure that we were both eaten by the same scavegers?  Especially as one may drag a body one way and another drag the other body another way... they'd have to post someone to watch and shoo away all but one vulture who would have to eat both of us (which gave me a mental imagine of a grim parody of the movie "Seven", but with a vulture being forced to eat bowls and bowls of entrails instead of spaghetti)  Anyway,  by this point, I realised they were talking in their sleep, and reassured them, they just needed to tie the bodies together, no one had to stand guard.

Well, the next day, I told them about it, and they laughed so hard, Mikolaj, our service dog, came running over to check on them, acting as if he was worried that Bug was having a seizure.  After a bit, he realised Bug was not having a seizure, and boy, did he look like the world's happiest dog just them.

It also came up, the ways the internet has changed since we started ABP, and where as we used to do text 'outtakes', today, youtube videos of what we say out loud while writing certain scenes could be the equivilent.  Except enither of us want to have a camera on us.  I suppose we could point it at Mikolaj, so you'd have silly dog faces as commentary to our talking while writing.
