...I finally have a tiny bit of something to post. *checks journal* Good grief, I can't believe it's been well over a year since the last part of this went up. Yikes. *eyes posting dates of other WIPs and winces again* Still working on other stories as well. Frustratingly enough, the muses were cooperating this weekend but my mom kept interrupting me to rescue her from computer problems. *head->desk* Argh!

Anyway, here's the next (somewhat short, sorry!) part of that untitled HP/BtVS crossover WIP. Let's not discuss how many times I've re-written this in order to get things to fall in place for the following parts, shall we?

Untitled BtVS/HP xover, eventual S/X slash (& probably H/D pre-slash), Rated FRT/PG-13 (for language), 4/? )

Previous bits here: 1, 2, and 3.

*groan* Yet another horse show coming up this weekend... Ugh... I hope our "steady Eddie" gelding behaves better than he did at the last one... He's like that poem about the girl with the little curl - when he's good, he's very, very good, but when he's bad, he's horrid. :P At the last show, I had to actually pull him out of class, he was so bad (having the horse turn so that he's at a 90 degree angle to the wagon he's pulling is not, generally speaking, a good thing - especially when he's supposed to be going straight... *sweatdrop*).

Anyway, aside from horse-related stuff, I've been working on a few fandom-related things. Unfortunately, the only bit of writing that I'm prepared to offer at the moment is another bit of the same BTVS-HP crossover that I've posted a couple of bits of previously. Still untitled, too.

Yeesh. I can hardly wait for winter to get here; summer's just too darn busy. :P Every time that I think things are due to settle down, something else comes up and I end up even more swamped than before. Ugh. Aquafit classes three times a week, lawn & garden work at home, horse shows, half of the annual computer budget's worth of new server and workstation hardware to be set up and installed at work, annual software upgrades that involve weeks of phone-tag and nagging support staff... Restoring and patching my website after a spate of hacking attacks against sites running on the eFiction script, like mine... *groan*

The list just keeps on growing. Oh yeah, mustn't forget testing out eFiction 3.0beta and trying to get my website ready for that upgrade sometime in the next month or two (including finally moving the last stories over from my old site, before I end up paying for yet another year of hosting there as well...) *sigh* I need a vacation - and the extra-long weekend I'm taking this weekend doesn't count, since that's time taken off for a horse show. :P

As far as writing goes, I've been pretty non-productive in the limited time I've spent trying to get something done. However, I did get a little more polishing done on the next chunk of the last bit of random scribbling that I posted, so...

BtVS scribble #4, crossover, eventual S/X, rated FRT, 2/? )

Oh yeah, previous part of this is here.

*sigh* Only one more bit of this that's even close to ready for posting, and the next installment of pretty much every one of my WIPs is stalled at the half-finished stage. Might have to resort to posting half-chapters, just to keep myself going... *crosses fingers and hopes to find a little free time to write this weekend*

I am tired and cranky and have had a thoroughly non-productive week (or two). :P I've spent the past week and a half playing phone tag with support staff for two separate issues at work and still haven't managed to get ahold of the one guy directly, while the other could only offer excuses and a target date in September for when they might - maybe - have the issue fixed. Blech. Add in staff whining about a brand new keyboard because they don't like the angle of its design and the fact that it's white, not black, (in other words, it's *gasp* different, oh horror of horrors!!) and I'm ready to throw something at someone. Argh!!

At any rate, here I am, taking my afternoon break to post since I may not get around to doing so this weekend. I've been to Aquafit twice already this week and I'm going again tonight, I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 2 one night (anybody know when 3 is due out?!), and I'm spending Friday, Saturday, and Sunday taking an intermediate glass fusing course, after which I will probably go home and collapse from exhaustion. The fusing course runs from 10-5 all three days. Yikes! It's not cheap, either - works out to about $100/day. Guh. All materials are included, however, as are the firings, and we're making at least three or four projects, so that's not too bad (a single firing is about $45); it's just a kind of big chunk of cash all at once. We're going to learn about glass compatibility and how to program the kiln's controller, not just make things, so it should be interesting. *crosses fingers* However, it all boils down to the fact that I'm really not going to have much writing time, nor have I had much at any point lately.

I promised myself that I'd try to post something fic-related every week or two, just to try and keep the muse going. Since I haven't gotten much accomplished on the writing front, all I have to offer at the moment is a chunk of another one of those random scribblings:

Untitled BtVS scribble #4, crossover, eventual S/X, 1/?, Rated... err, FRT, I guess... )

There's a couple more chunks of this done, plus I've got a few other odds and ends that aren't too far from being ready for posting as a "random scribbling", at least. All I need to do is find a few minutes to work on them when I'm not too tired and distracted to concentrate.

Yeah, right. :P

Will post pics of the glass fusing projects at some point, hopefully. *makes mental note to take and post pics of glass beads from torchworking class a couple of weeks ago, too*

Lots going on, as per usual lately, but I did take the time to go see the new Pixar film "Cars" on Friday. Let me just say - WOW. Gorgeous animation, cute story with lots of message yet not a lot of preachiness, plenty of layers to the jokes and storyline... Extremely entertaining and enjoyable. Well worth the admission price. Two thumbs up. *grin* I'd rate it right up there by "Toy Story", I think.

Church picnic today, so I haven't gotten a whole lot of writing done. However, while I continue working on the WIPs, I do have another of those little (well, over 3700 words might be pushing it a bit for 'little', but anything under 5000 words is pretty short for me...) rough scribblings to share. This is kind of... err... odd, shall we say?... and a little experimental. It's also just one of several little scribblings related to this 'universe'. Most likely destined to be one of a series of one-shots showcasing significant events in the timeline. First, however, I need to come up with a series title, a story title, and figure out how the heck to number them since they're not going to be written (nor necessarily intended to be read) in chronological order...

HP Scribble #9, untitled BtVS/HP Crossover, AU (very), S/X (plus other BtVS pairings) )
