Okay my lucky f-list, you get to see why I sign up to produce fic, not art. [ profile] akatnamedeaster had a YOU CAN draw!!! Challenge!! for anyone (explicitly including people who feel "I can't draw!") to draw an HP character and a cup of tea (or coffee), and post it. I learned about this from seeing [ profile] nia_kantorka's darling Hedwig perched on a teacup, and couldn't resist. The result is below. I used my laptop to take the picture, which means you need a mirror to read the writing, oops! Secret code!

Crookshanks and tea

You should go check out the other art, which stars a wide range of characters including the Giant Squid, Peeves and Mrs. Norris, and ranges from adorable (some created by kids) to very funny to teacup porn. You can even vote for funniest/most creative, sexiest, and your overall fav.

Also - in just a couple of days, we'll have fun [ profile] hp_drizzle to look forward to! It's a fun way to peek into other corners of the fandom. Or to find a home for that fic you want to write, if you can finagle some connection to the weather....

Long past time to publicize these generous and beautiful creations that others have made from a few of my fics, and thank the makers. It is such a delight and honor for me. (I am terribly slow at posting in my own journal because I get coding-phobia sometimes, but I have loved each of these since they were created.)

Podfics! Back in round 3 of H/D LDWS, I wrote 8 drabbles about Magical Items and Artefacts. To my great delight, there are podfics of two of these by [ profile] vaysh, and of the complete set (or here on AO3) by [ profile] sisi_rambles! Thank you so so much for this honor, o lovely and wondrous podficcers! It is so amazing to hear someone else read my work aloud.

My story Beekeeping is set in Malawi, a small country in Africa where Harry is a volunteer teacher and Draco has come to see the spectacular fish of Lake Malawi. Shortly after they run into each other by the lakeside, Harry has a dreamy dream - and here is a lovely illustration of it, with gorgeous fish art and happy naked boys, by [ profile] kalime80 - I am so happy that she did this! It's called I dreamt of a thousand scales, and it was you, and it's like a scene of an underwater Eden. (Naked boys, like I said, so maybe NSW.)

Finally, I am incredibly grateful to and in awe of [ profile] phonixfeder, who has now translated all four of my longer fics into German! It's such a pleasure to get the comments from the German readers, and I always learn some new expression - like "kopfkino" (when your imagination starts making mental cinema) or "Holla die Waldfee!" or "He had the Pope in his pocket." Her translations are here:
Funken, die aus dem Schwanz eines Fuchses Kommen (Sparks from the Fox's Tail in German translation)
Das Z├╝chten von Bienen (Beekeeping in German translation)
Abraxan Wings in German translation
Draco Malfoy sehen (Seeing Draco Malfoy in German translation)

Thank each of you so much, it is so encouraging and such a privilege for me. And thank you to everyone who reads, looks or listens!
