I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
Five things

1. Apparently my fic Aftershocks was one of the most popular Harry/Draco fics on AO3 in 2016! At least as far as drarry-specific-recs can tell, from hits. What??? It’s like 2k of after-sex fingering. But then I guess that would back up my theory that a lot of the most successful fic (in terms of attention/love) combines a big pairing with an offbeat kink.

2. I have a problem with my left eye which will probably not get better, but is far from a disaster. (I can’t read with the left eye alone, but my peripheral vision is fine and my right eye compensates, so I barely notice having a floater in the left eye.) Mostly I notice when I do my eye make-up. Right now I’m relieved that the attempt at making it better - two INJECTIONS INTO MY EYE, NEEDLE IN MY ACTUAL EYE OH MY GOD - is probably over.

3. I signed up for [community profile] hd_erised. I was in at nine minutes and the very last sign-up. Now the waiting for my assignment begins! I wouldn’t be surprised if this was my last fic for that fest - although not my last HP fic! - so. Yeah. I’m pleased I got in, although we’ll see how I feel once I get my match!

4. Friday I went to see ‘Queers’ with [personal profile] kabal42, [profile] magicatmungos, and [personal profile] mokatiki. It was gorgeous - four monologues from queer men (I think three gay, one trans and straight) going forward in time. They were funny, heartbreaking, clever, and also really wonderfully expressed some of the ambiguity within the community about respectability, and legality, and the feeling of loss that comes with not being an “outlaw” as you become accepted. That’s not something I see talked about much, but it’s a very real tension. Also different varieties of happy endings. <3

5. I’m sorry I’m SO TERRIBLE at comment replies right now. It’s 100000% not you, it’s me.

Congrats for the "Aftershocks" appreciation! As you probably know, I'm also a sucker for deliciously subby!Draco. Oh man!! And you write smut SO WELL! I love your style.

The show you saw seems great, tbh. I wish I could see stuff like that too! And I'm so happy that you are among this year Erised writers!

What happened to your eye though? Did you understand the cause?

You are a fic monster! :D

Sorry about the eye issue; that sucks. Blurgh.

Congrats on getting into Erised!

So cool about "Aftershocks"! I can't help but be chuffed that came from my prompt :)

And so glad to see you'll be writing for Erised. I looked over the signups and saw SO MANY amazing writers. It's going to be awesome, I'm sure!

You should be, it's an amazing prompt :DDD

YES! So exciting. Ooh, and that's just reminded me that it's not just the writing - I'm going to get a giftfic, too :DDD

A NEEDLE INTO YOUR EYE!!!! They would have to hold my eye open with a vice. Interesting - "the feeling of loss that comes with not being an “outlaw” as you become accepted" ... I had only vaguely considered it, and not put it into words.
