Poo, bum, wee and fic!  
Jetlag of DOOM has struck. I also appear to have developed peroneal tendonitis, which is clearly the universe laughing at me buying a new running top yesterday. Damn you, universe! Should be fine with rest and physio, and I will break out the rowing machine rather than the running top! (And for anyone inclined to worry, don't, I have high arches and a mangled right foot that makes it susceptible to this sort of thing, and it is my own fault for being far too slack at general fitness and stretching and then treating my body as though it was still capable of doing anything I want it to.)

I was going to have finished at least the first of my remaining travel posts today, but I dozed and limped instead. So for people who aren't following serpentinelion , have some fic I wrote for the lovely teas_me  last week -- er, mods, that is to say, AGES ago, when I was meant to. Oh who am I kidding ... thank you all for not sending in the brute squad, I do appreciate it. You are saintly people, saintly, I tell you!

The wonderful jadzialove  has given it a quick once-over, but her computer committed holiday-induced suicide, and my idiocy is such that very dumb typos may remain, for which I apologise in advance. Thanks to raitala  for spotting the utter nonsense in the opening section in time for it to be excised ruthlessly. I blame the spiced cider ...

Marginal Notes

(PS pingrid , I am watching my second ep of Magnum PI -- it is as bizarre as the first, and made weirder by the fact that nice barman at Hive Bar is currently sporting a Selleck 'tache for Movember and had an Hawaiian shirt on today.

PPS Don't mention the cricket.)

I often write fic! I just don't often actually finish and publish it ... ;-)

I have been reading through it in a bid to remember exactly what I had planned. More is being written! An ending even, if we are very lucky!

SO many moments when I was keen to introduce a runaway lorry and make a clean break, as it were ...

Jetlag sucks. :(

Wow, I've gotten so out of habit at commenting on fic, but that was just lovely. ♥

I hate when we do badly in sport against Australia, my Dad is so sad. Though, it's really cool it's in our state this year, my Dad's actually going to one of the matches this time. :D

What a difference a few days makes! I was so excited when we turned it all around -- I had been joking that the first innings consisted of Strauss going out and saying: 'Right, someone's going to cock up stupidly, it might as well be me and I might as well get it out of the way early ...' and then the rest of the team were all 'Oh mate, we can;t let you wear that one alone, here, we'll cock up in solidarity!'

Happily, they seem to all have it out of their systems :-)

And oh god, I STILL have jetlag! I need to start going to bed earlier ...

That is just the most charming and funny fic! :DD I love this Draco, and the Greengrass sisters with their Bingo game was so much fun. And Harry with his notes is adorable. *loves*

Thank you so much! And Oh LOOK at your lovely boys in your icon *happy sigh*

Why are you watching Magnum PI instead of Hawaii Five-0?


Also - you already know what I think of this fic, right? But I'm totally up for the first class ticket offer - particularly if you could just write in the UK. :D

(ps. actually, if it's Singapore Airlines, I'd settle for business class, so just think of how much money I could save you?)

Magnum is on free to air at godawful o'clock ;-)

HEE! I must work on the independent wealth!

Your fic, as always, is full of awesome lines that have me laughing hysterically. Snatcher re-enacters! Differently-parented Hufflepuffs! The conversation between Draco and the firsties, where he is correcting their observations about the final battle was particularly inspired. Really just all around lovely.

Having found myself unable to round up any sense for writing, I fell back on nonsense, which is happily my native state ;-)

Oh, thank you! Thanks for linking, as I somehow missed it.

This is such a fun, happy, smart, funny story. *memoried*

This has been a great fic, I laughed so hard when I listened to the podfic of sisi rambles. :D Thanks for sharing this, made ma smile a lot, this good Draco was surely joy to imagine and oh my, Greengrasses' bingo cards made my day!
