New Layout!  
Look at my new banner and layout! Cilla made it for me. Isn't she fabulous? It's simple but elegant.

The quotes come from the book The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. FABULOUS book. Highly recommend.

I needed a change, and this is quite nice.

Your new layout is in Hufflepuff colors. I'm just saying! :P

The Hunger Games is on my to-be-read list. :)

Snorfles. It's pretty, though. And a Hufflepuff did make it, LOL.

Everyone knows I'm ravenclaw, anyway ;) Still kicking butt, we are! ;)

Totally need to read. Totally.
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 06:25 am (UTC)
There are twice as many Ravenclaws as Hufflepuffs playing. Personally, I think we're doing pretty well.
Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 06:27 am (UTC)
Oh, you all are...

I just faintly smug, is all ;) Don't mind me. I like winning a little too much for my fool-own-good.
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 06:28 am (UTC)
lol. go ahead and keep on feeling smug; there's still quite a few months to go in this competition. ;)
Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 06:30 am (UTC)
Oh, I know... and I've not been terribly prolific in HP lately. But yeah. I wish ST fics counted...
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 06:31 am (UTC)
I wish other fandoms counted; I've put a lot of stuff on CAT lately playing catch up.
Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 06:34 am (UTC)
Yeah. I need to update CAT with my stuff, but first I need to get Annie or someone to add stuff to the ST section. THen I need to pimp CAT out to the ST crowd. Lots to do, and I'm so lazy...
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 06:36 am (UTC)
Yeah, I asked about having some stuff added to CAT a while back and need to remind someone about it. But I have to remember what it was, first. There was something about adding characters to the Dresden thing, I thought? Maybe. but I also have like, Chronicles of Narnia and Shelter fic I want to put there (b/c I'm LAZY. I like the idea of having all my stuff on the same archive, so I can link to it without having to fuss with my LJ masterlist).
Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 06:39 am (UTC)
When you remember, poke me and I'll see if I can have it done.

I'm lazy too. I still need to fix up my masterlist like I want to...
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 06:40 am (UTC)
I got motivated and worked on my masterlist but only got it halfway done. We can totally be lazy together, lol.

I also need to try and get the code for my robe and patches to work (I keep meaning to ask fer) and make another post about the Owl Cup. And recruit more Hufflepuffs!
Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 06:44 am (UTC)
I haven't tried to get my robe to work yet. Always seem to have something else to do. Of course, I have three active writing projects right now, and another I need to start... so yeah.
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 06:47 am (UTC)
I kept putting it off, then when I got my email with my patch for June I figured I'd try it. But I can't get the code to work right, so it'll sit there for a while again now, lol.

I'm gonna send you fic-type ramblings sometime in the next few days. Was gonna work on it today, but then Panic at the Disco decided they were going to break up and throw all of bandom into craziness, so I was a bit distracted.

I'm rather ridiculous about finishing things. But I am participating in that five for five lj comm thingy, so I am at least getting something written on a near-daily basis.
Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 06:52 am (UTC)
Feel free to send it anytime. I go back to work tomorrow, so when I reply might be eratic but I will reply.

Bummer about Panic at the Disco. That sucks.

It's good to at least be writing. I'm writing a lot every day--I think I have over 7000 words for the past three days, on three separate pieces. One is going to be my ST big bang, though, I think, and the other sprung out surprisingly on me. The third is pure porn that I have to turn in to a fest on the 8th.
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 06:54 am (UTC)
I was planning on using panic for several of the prompts on my cliche_bingo card, but they've ruined that for me, so I have a feeling a good portion of the prompts on there are going to end up being HP fic. I accidentally wrote HG/SS time-travel fic the other night when I couldn't sleep. Also, the only deadline I currently have is like Aug 12, so I'm not in any hurry about anything I might send you. Feel free to take your time in replying.

ST bigbang, huh? I guess I really do need to give in and read your ST fic, don't I?
Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 06:57 am (UTC)
Awwwww bummer.

I was too late to the news to get a cliche bingo card. le sigh.

Snorfle. Really? I can't wait to see that.

Oh, I'll get to it within a couple of days, no worries. I've just been sleeping so weird that I'm tired a lot, and work will kick my butt this week.

I would love if you would read them :) but don't force yourself to. I'm having way too much fun in this fandom though.
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 07:00 am (UTC)
I think the girls that organized cliche_bingo were kinda overwhelmed by the response to it, lol.

I always feel strange when I write het in HP. I guess it's b/c I came into fandom as a slasher, and am still a pretty hardcore Harry/Draco shipper. But what I wrote the other day is pretty ridiculous.
Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 07:02 am (UTC)
Yeah, but I still wish they'd stayed open a little longer. Sigh.

Lol. Which is why it's kinda strange I'm in ST now, since it's mostly slash. And yet, I'm having a freaking ball. Hawt boys, rawr.
Tabbywhy_me_why_not on July 7th, 2009 07:05 am (UTC)
My friend Alli is an RPS-girl, and so she's all about Chris/Zack right now, and she and I have been arguing about it b/c I came out of the movie all OMG KARL URBAN! and she thinks that's traitorous, lol. But I started my fandom experience in LotR, so obviously I'm partial to Karl Urban!

Gelseygelsey on July 7th, 2009 07:09 am (UTC)
I have to say, I'm also partial to Karl Urban. I think at heart I'm a Kirk/McCoy shipper, but I also like to read Kirk/Spock and other pairings. You know me, I'm pretty much an equal-opportunity type person... though there are a few ships I won't read.

Gorgeous layout! :D

Thanks, hun!
