So. Yes. My lovely exciting new job? Didn't work out. I've already talked a lot about it on twitter and I'm not sure I want to go into it again but. Yeah. It sucks and it makes me sad to think about how frickin' happy and hopeful I was.

But, as ever, my internet family are being amazing. I am, according to the notes attached to the various cards, notes, pictures and postcards I've received "in the process of getting a group hug from the internet. If it doesn't make sense yet, stand by."

YOU GUYS FOR SERIOUS I CANNOT EVEN. They are all so beautiful and HANDMADE and wonderful, oh my god. Thank you so, so much *takes a breath* [ profile] vandulocity  [ profile] kaiserkuchen [ profile] miabee023  [ profile] sarkysnarky  [ profile] khasael [ profile] pigrescuer  [ profile] branquignole  [ profile] hanelissar  [ profile] moogle62 [ profile] playwithfyr  and the rest to come. I have never been so sad that there's no post on Sundays. I don't know who the mastermind(s) behind the project but oh my god, thank you and I like how it looks like you are quoting me. I love it when you quote me! #mystery #excitement #bears

In other excellent news the fic that I produced for [ profile] pod_together  with the fabulous [ profile] nielrian  is up on the AO3! Hurray! It is a Kurt/Blaine summer job fluff extravaganza called Haven't Let You Out Since I Let You In and you can all see what I meant when I said my sunburn was karma. And also experience the wonder that is N's reading, her Kurt voice is so perfect, y'all, I cannot even. PERFECT. I have listened to her say "cliché" over and over. I should probably post it places to be completist but I am so laaaaazy today.

Also I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows P2 at the midnight showing and it was very satisfying and upsetting and I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT HARRY POTTER. It really makes me want to write HP fic again. Maybe we should have "Fandom Will Always Be There To Welcome You Home" fic writing, reading, reccing fest or something.

So, yes, this is mostly an entry of things that I will have more to say about later. Whatever. It's like, 2am here and I need to have achieved something today apart from finally convincing my boyfriend to just download the first season of the West Wing so that we can watch it. He's been holding out for buying the DVDs for <i>years</i>. We are late to the party, sure, but oh, what a party!

Kisses, lovely.

My sympathies about the job, I know how that goes. Hang in there!

I just went to see HP last night and I've got so many mixed feelings about it. It was sort of an exhausting experience for me! :)

Thank you hon, everyone is being so lovely to me!

Right? I'm still not sure how I feel about it overall, and also we went to a midnight showing so it was possibly a bit overwhelming due to lack of sleep and, ugh, Harry Potter, I wish I knew how to quit you except that I don't...

Aaahhhhh, HP! SO VERY MANY FEELINGS!! Do you want to talk about your HP feelings? Because I want to listen! And squee! And cry! And perhaps rage! And alllllll the others!

Gah, I need to see it again!

The annoying thing is that I totally flipped it on my computer and then twitgoo flipped it back. It is SO WONDERFUL. I got 4 more today.

I am so jealous of everybody's art skills! That polar bear is *awesome*.

I haven't seen Harry Potter yet, but I watched Part 1 in preparation yesterday and got all emotional in front of my boyfriend's mum. That was a little embarrassing. xD I've never been that into the films (I only actually watched 4,5 and 6 at the time part 1 was out) but I'm getting all full of nostalgia and FEELINGS and wanting-to-write-fic this time around. So yeah, I totally back the Fandom Will Always Be There idea. :P

Right? So much talent. The bear came from [ profile] kaiserkuchen and it is truly incredible.

Oh god, the films have never been the most important part of HP fandom to me by a long way, but arg, these last few, SO MANY FEELINGS.

I am seriously considering it!

Those cards are absolutely lovely. If I had known about the project, I would have pitched in, but in the meantime, I will offer a virtual hug and digital glitter. You will just have to imagine they are there with that big brain of yours. ;___;

I am so sad I haven't seen DH2 yet. So sad.

There is so much pretty! A recreated Marauder's Map! A ninja polar bear! A quote extravaganza! I will add the virtual glitter in my mind.

See it, see iiiiiit...

I can't wait for you to get it allllllllllll! Some prime stuff is heading your way still <33. Also the planning WAS very exciting (not the mastermind here tho, you shall find out soon enough :P), we had email threads and all such official things going and were joking how we should all totally hold a Lal-Friending Meme after it all goes live. [ profile] laliandra: CONNECTING PEOPLE <33

ALSO YOUR POD TOGETHER FIC EEEEEEEEEEEEE so adorable and your reader's voice IS wonderful and a fitting charming partner to your wordssss. YOUR WORDS. It is such a Lal!fic, I could actualfax hear certain wonderful turns of phrase in your voice, even :DD. Oh Blaine, I ALSO PRESS PATTERNS IN MY TAN, I FEEL YOU BRO <33. The loving descriptions of Blaine dripping water were also much appreciated, AHEM AHEM :D. AND OF COURSE: "LOVE; SOFT-EDGED AND SUN BRIGHT" GODDAMMIT LAL now I want my own perfect teenage dream warbler boyfriend (but one of the taller and also straight ones please. Also fuck I am not a teenager anymore so this would technically be cradle-robbing nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....)

PSST I THINK ONE OF YOUR NOTES SNUCK IN TO THE FINISHED VERSION THO, I marked it in italics: “No regrets,” (this is indeed a TD reference! I was imagining it more said than sung, but I’m not sure if that will be clear enough, what do you think?) Mercedes deadpans. Kurt elbows her in the ribs. Blaine bows neatly and there is, if Kurt says so himself, rapturous applause.

Actually, she may have done this on purpose. Lots of authors left their notes in when they posted their pod-together fics, since the fics were meant to be podfics, and so those notes were integral to the writing, in a way.

In fact, I totally initially was going to call the fics "podfic scripts" but got overruled by those who felt that it might make the authors feel like they were being treated as less important than the podficcers, which is not the impression I wanted to give!

I was very proud of my matchmaking with Lal and [ profile] nielrian, though, and now that the final product is out, I am giving myself high fives all over the place for bringing these two together. I would not cry at ALL if they decided to do more...

Ahhhhhh, well that clears things up a bit! I have next to no real knowledge of how things are done in the podficcing world, whoops XDD. Now that I know this, it does add an extra nuance to the whole thing-- I love DVD-type commentaries on fics anyways XD

Well you should be proud, it clearly was a wonderful partnership that produced a lovely fic :DD I SECOND THE SUBTLE HINTS FOR MOAAAAR (by writing in allcaps of course, as do all the champions of subtle and cunning, ahem)

askjghl the thought of it makes me so overcome with happiness, I cannot even. YOU GUYS. And yes I hope y'all become friends now, this would make me happy. Maybe I will suggest it when I post the finished product.

:D:D:D ILUUUU, thank you so much! Yeah, so there was some good old fashioned objectification of Darren Criss :D

YESSSS that sounds excellent to me and fitting, as you are our UNITING SOURCE. Our connective fiber! Or uh-- okay I am scrambling for an accurate metaphor here but ding ding ding the sleep deprivation demons have shut down my higher thought processes so you must fill something appropiate in instead.

That kind of objectification is always welcome in my book! MMMMMH DCRISS <33

Ooh how mysterious, I wonder what all those could be about :P

Literally the most fun ever, you have the bestest friends <3 We have had some fabulous group emails and it's just reaffirmed how fabulous and amazing and loving and creative and hilarious the internet is. And also ALL YOUR FRIENDS because you being amazing naturally means all your friends are fifty kinds of fabulous. I love them all. :D

I AM STILL WAITING ON HARRY POTTER. DAMN IT LAL I CAN'T WAIT MUCH LONGER MY HEART IS YEARNING FOR IT. D: But I've been rewatching the old ones with my family, we did Chamber of Secrets tonight (wow I forgot how a) long that film is and b) how bloody terrifying those spiders are. I was cringing and shaking in my chair, god I have such bad arachnophobia) and it's Azkaban tomorrow (MY ABSOLUTELY FAVOURITE I HEART YOU CUARON) and I am loving it but oh GOD I want the last one. :(

Love you massively beautiful girl. You're amazing and I'm glad your floor is getting so nicely decorated! \o/

Truly, it is the most mysterious. Me and my housemate genuinely stood around like people in a really low budget crime show, trying to work out what the remaining gaps are. And I was like, no, I am pretty sure about that last sentence. No. Really. They are quoting me.

:D:D:D I HAVE LUCKED OUT. I am so charmed and amazed by all my different corners of the internet coming together. I hope you all become frans forever.

AAAAAH, Han I cannot even, Deathly Hallows. MY EMOTIONS. OH GOD. The giant spider is so terrible, but the smaller ones are legit terrifying. GO SEE DH2, goooooo.

Love you too, and I love your earth and your quotes and your words, you are too wonderful and lovely and I'm so glad that you were the first person I ever met from the internet, even though it set the standard ridiculously high <3

I'm still really really sorry the job didn't work out. ): HAVE ALL OF THE HUGS, LAL. ♥ I'm sure you're going to find an awesome job that is wonderfully suited to you in no time at all; you are very fabulous! All of these cards look very fabulous also! I'm sorry mine looks a little shabby, I was working with limited resources due to my being on holiday. xD (Don't know who I'm trying to kid though, my artistic talent is zero, haha.) But it was a very fun project with very fun people, and it's so exciting to see it all come together!

Harry Potter. ;___; I haven't seen DH2 yet, but I shall go see it on Saturday, and I- I'm really not sure I'll be able to take all of the feelings and I will probably be reduced to a sobbing mess. I HOPE THE INTERNET WILL BE THERE TO HOLD ME WHEN I GET BACK.

ILU. ♥

Oh, thank you my dearest Bran. I love your card, shush! It is very creative, but I mostly enjoyed your lovely metaphor on the back. You know me and metaphors. It is the most exciting. I mean, getting post is exciting by itself and now there is added mystery and awesome and delight.

Also Isi sent her card with the disclaimer of "with more love than artistic ability" *g*

I don't know who the mastermind(s) behind the project

Neither do I, and I want to express my annoyance at them for not being asked to be involved :(

I'm going to go ahead and delete my previous comment, since this post is unlocked and it contains your email address. But yes, you were asked. Sorry the communication did not make it through to you.
