Misc:  DW Sheep

Fic and Nattering

So the authors behind the stories for yuletide and shackinup_sesa were revealed.

I didn't try to make any guesses really, because I'm notoriously bad at it. musesfool, however, is a sneaky minx, because she wrote my lovely shackinup_sesa, and wheedled me into talking about it on IM before I knew it was her. She is clever like a fox.

So I shall post both of my stories here, starting with the shackinup_sesa story, because no one will know what the hell the other one is from. Heh. Which is good. Yay for rare and obscure.

Title: Homeless Near a Thousand Homes
Author: Sullen Siren (adena(at)direcway(dot)com)
Summary: "He went there because he wanted to remember, and he stayed because he had no other place to be."
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Remus/Sirius
Warnings: A bit heavy handed with the sweet toward the end, but I couldn't seem to temper it for some reason.
Spoilers: Through the beginnings of OotP, I suppose.
Notes: Written for the shackinup_sesa Challenge. I drew kestrelsan, who wanted a non-comedy in a non-book location, and for them to meet up with another character. Hope this works for you, kestralsan!

This story got a better response than I expected. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for people liking my stuff - but it felt disjointed to me and a little forced in spots. So either people are willing to overlook that, or I'm overly self-critical. Or, you know, both.

Also - musesfool has addicted me to Tom Mcrae. Everyone should seriously be listening to him and signing his name onto their panties. (Or boxers, or tighty whities, or whatever your preference.) He's brilliant. All these soulful young male singer-songwriters just *wish* they were this good.

Lastly - anyone up for a Beta on a seriously, hugely, massively WRONG on so many levels sort of HP fic? I so should not be writing this thing, but it keeps getting written. I blame the monkeys.

ETA: The stories written for me for yuletide and shackinup_sesa were both fabulous and fun and can be found here and here. Thank you for these, both of you!
