Just to make the thing official, I now exist on dreamwidth, where I'll be posting all of my original fiction, poetry, prose-poetry, etc. Ta da: cridecoeur. If you'd like to see any of it, you'll have to drop me a line because the vast majority's going to be access list only. I know there's a way to grant access to livejournal accounts, so you wouldn't have to have a dreamwidth account (although if you'd like one, I'm going to have invite codes at some point), I'll just have to figure out how to do it.

I'm ridiculously flattered that you like that story enough to reread it like that. Just. Thank you for letting me know. And actually, I have some dreamwidth invite codes, one of which I will be more than happy to give to you! Just let me know how I should send it to you. And then let me know what account you create so I can grant you access. I also, uh, have a good deal of other fanfiction lingering on an old account of mine that I should really, really move over. I just can't seem to motivate myself to do it.

Okay. I sent the code through livejournal; hopefully I didn't mess anything up.

It probably wouldn't take all that much cheerleading, honestly. But it's all old, HP stuff, and, well, rather more experimental than what I write now - it's really more prose-poetry than anything else, with a few rare exceptions. I think the highest word count was 700. *laughs* Plus, towards the end, it was all about the Blacks/other death eaters and fairly dark. I think I killed Regulus 3 different times. (Apparently I was getting it out of my system, because I played him on 2 AU boards, neither of which he died on. I do miss those boards.) I mostly just assumed that people outside of the HP fandom wouldn't be interested in reading it.

Also, if I were a girl and prone to blushing, I would be blushing. You are too kind.

Just let me know when it does/doesn't work. I can always send another code if that one doesn't work. And believe me, I understand. I can be terribly scatterbrained. And rather technologically illiterate, which doesn't help much.

Well, then, I'll work on transferring things over to this account once I'm past studying for this bitch of a test. So Friday-ish. I've only put it off for, uh, a year? A year and a half? Good lord.

And it's more that I have this belief that a good character should get a good death than anything else. I'm, uh, rather infamous for killing off characters, particularly in original fiction. >.> There's at least a minor character death in everything I've written. A novella I'm working on now actually starts with the main character dying. *rolls eyes* I'm a real piece of work, sometimes.

All of my original stuff is posted on my dreamwidth. Since I've given you access you'll be able to read the poetry and prose-poetry as well as the fiction. I can't tell you whether that's a good or a bad thing. I should warn you, perhaps, that the fiction I post there is unedited (although children die of the imagination was, too - I'm not very good about rewriting, particularly because I have no one to look over my work >.>). I work on the theory that once it's posted I can move on and stop obsessing over it. It's actually upped my productivity a lot. Whether you like it/hate it/are indifferent, I'd be interested to hear. You never do get much feedback on original work - the communities built around them simply aren't as large scale as fandom communities - and it always leaves me wondering.

I would be happy to look over your writing! I always get excited about things like reel_merlin, mostly because I love a good AU and crossover. It will, though, have to wait until at least tomorrow afternoon, when my test is done. And, yes, the subject is interesting. I'm studying to be a chemical dependency counselor, and this is about the neurology behind drug and alcohol use. Which might not be interesting to person who isn't me, but I'm enjoying it.
