i know ppl still go to our fannish website for the fics, but dont know who on my reading list is still into it, or has moved on.

if you are still into snarry, and interested in ABP being updated, and can keep a secret or two (i have questions on some things, 'should we do it this way or that way'.), comment, so i can put you on a filter for those posts.

thnx.

One of the most depressing things I've encountered recently was a review for ABP that described it as "abandoned".  Its not, although i understand why people would think so.

Bug and I talk about it often, and try writing in fits and spurts. 

Those that have followed us closest might remember we've been dealing with things like both of us having pain issues (joint disease for me, while Bug was diagnosed with MS a couple yrs ago).  So there's the stress and anxiety and depression with that.  About 2.5 yrs ago we moved to our first house we bought.

I know there is lot sof stuff between then and now, but to be honest, I can't remember.  Heck, if you asked me to list our stressors just inthe past month, I'd not remember half of them, let alone put them in chronological order.  Its just like before we have finished with stressor A, stressor B hits us.  We finally take care of A, only to have C hit us, before we are finished with B, and so on.

I'll have to write about the current shit we'll dealing with for anyone who is interested, but not now as i have to get to bed very soon and that needs to be flocked anyway.

Anyway, back to ABP...

For a while, I had been resolving to get the current book finished... and since is was so long since an update, i figured that since people would likely need to re-read to remember WTF was going on, I might aw well just make it one big update - like "update: book finished!"  yeah, that worked well, didn't it?  I mean, just give myself an impossibly big task, with no positive feedback as I went along, while life continues to throw shit at me... why i thought that was a good idea, again, i don't know.

So, new idea!

i'm going to go back to posting updates- even if just a few pages at a time.  I can't promise they will be regular, but I should actually make some progress instead of just falling into despair at my ongoing failure, and hopefully prevent any further encounters of "warning: abandoned fic".

I am going to try really hard to post here more, even though I do not have any fic updates yet (i don't know why its so hard to post, or why i don't want to really think about why.)

For my first post, I have two, unrelated things to post on...

1. Any one have any recs for gardening communities where I could post photos of Squash and get feedback on what varieties they most likely are? 

2. I have noticed (since Bugland asked me to co-write a relatively short one-shot (HP travelling back in time to meet a Snape just a few years older than he is) that I have a strong preference for Teacher Snape / Student Harry.  If I MUST write outside of this (eg a gift request that has teacher/student or underage listed as a squick), that I prefer future fics rather than fics that attempt to make them closer ina ge (eg: (de)-aging potions, time travel, etc)

This is not because I prefer older/younger pairings or underage characters, pairings that are considered controversial or illegal in the fic' setting, or a preference for one character to be one in a position of authority.  I like plenty of pairings that do not fit the moulds that Teacher Snape / Student Harry fit into.   Why should this be?  Two possibilities that came to mind are:

A. Canonically, the characters have a teacher/student relationship (the non-sexual type of relationship I mean here).  I thought about, and found in support of this, that I would not care for Remus/Sirius fic where they were significantly different ages.

and/or

B. I think they are more psychologically/emotionally/developmentally matched at that point-  but they are also both rather stagnated in their development ; only  until they are in a relationship, do they begin to mature together, as they try to make it work.    I also dislike  fic where HP is paired with Ron or Hermione or Ginny (the first two are just keepign things the same, the second is just doing what others expect of him, which is all he has ever really done), or fics pairing Snape with Lily, and I do not care for SS/HP fics set FAR in the future where they have worked out their differences for the most part (also since the few i've read often are placed at the ends of their live(s) together- but that is another topic),

I suspect there maybe even other reasons, I've yet to put a finger on, as this is a new revelation for me.
