My very first post using my shiny new laptop. So wonderful. It actually works, and tends to actually do what I tell it to, a novel concept, I assure you. What is not
so wonderful is the process of transferring everything from my old laptop to this new one. Oy, headache.
In honor of my birthday, and to christen the new computer, I had wanted to write a new fic, however the muse has not been kind to me of late. I can do the next best thing, however, now that the reveal for remus_reads
has occurred :)
First, however, I would like to pimp out the fic that I received in the exchange: Raindrops on Noses
. I've linked you to the posting at her journal, rather than the community's journal so that should you want to comment on it, she will receive it more easily. This story is a lovely fic written from my prompts of: teasing conversations and hopeful endings. It is Remus/Sirius, G, MWPP-era, and quite enjoyable.
My contribution to the exchange is below, but before I get to that, a bit of background... It was written for nohwrah
(Funny how that turned out :) ), with the prompts: smoking!sirius and unrequited love being requited. The minimum word count for this exchange was 200 words, however once I got started I couldn't stop. It just got completely out of hand :-D I think the prompts given were perfect - enough to give me a starting point without being restrictive of my imagination. I'm sure there are still rough spots in there, so feel free to point out any errors, or question anything you'd like - I love constructive criticism. I also had a second beta, rissabby
, in addition to the always-wonderful amor_remanet
, whose comments and suggestions were added to the version of the fic I'm posting now, so... thanks to wonderful, lovely, understanding, and patient betas!
Title: Sheer Madness of the Marauder Sort
Warning(s): Hmmm, heights and smoking?
A/N: This fic was written for nohwrah
for the remus_reads
fic exchange to celebrate Remus Lupin's birthday. It was-betaed by the ever-talented amor_remanet
, whose help and humor are invaluable.( It was the smoke that gave Sirius away... )
