samhain_smut reveals have been posted.

I promised featherxquill that she could needle me 'til I popped if I didn't re-post my story and actually promote myself for once. I thought I would do the intelligent thing and prevent myself from being made a human pincushion.

(I know, I know, it's shocking to hear I actually do write, and things do actually get posted from time to time. Hardly by me, really, but there's a first-handful-of-times for everything. This may make a handful of fic I've actually promoted myself.)

I wrote Goddess of Fruit and Seed, which has now joined my list of fest fic (just so it's known I have one).

I am delighted to see that the prompt was from none other than kellychambliss, who can never get gifts enough for her wonderful participation and encouragement in fandom. Thank you for the prompt, dearie! It turns out I've wanted to write this fic for ages. (:

I wrote the story in an attempt to make plants sexy (in my own, OLSB, yay-lesbians and unconventional relationships sort of way). Genera like Clitoria really make things easy on me, thankfully. And, as I'm rather fond of dear old Sprout, the rest didn't come with much more than a good firm yank, either.

It was a fun fest! I probably won't have a rec post up until I've read everything, so not until after my NaNoWriMo novel is done, but hopefully it'll make it here eventually; I've been bookmarking what I want to rec.

Now back to writing! In this sprint I should hit 10,000 words! It may not be 13,400 as I intended, but at least I'm far closer to being caught up! And that's all from me. :D

(Pomona is just agreeing that featherxquill can't poke and needle me now. Wait, what's that Pomona...? No, no you are not allowed to mention hoggywartyxmas until I've finished my novel, you know that--Feather and Queenie can't heckle me 'til later so nor can you! Don't you dare tell me to go straight back to writing when I'm spreading the word of your expertise! Hmmph. Next time I'm writing you with a thistle, you ol' coot--don't give me that look or I'm sending you answering to Willa. Oh, the mouth on you!)

*Kiwi disappears to have A Word with Pomona.*

P.S. I just made this icon, so you're free to take it! (By 'made' I mean 'cropped a picture'.)

♥ Yay to see you promoting your awesome fic! And that Pomona gif is kind of mesmerising. *g*

I think it's part of this new "fuck ego" thing of mine. :B Yesterday I even recorded an old song when I decided to puts around with my ukulele as procrastination - and then I sent it to a few of my friends who would enjoy it!

But mostly I knew I had given you permission to needle me and we couldn't let that nonsense go on, could we? :Þ

The Pomona gif is definitely mesmerising. (Thanks Tumblr!) I keep getting the urge to ask her silly questions just to see her nod away her answer... C;

What luck that you reminded me that I wanted to read the Pomona story on samhain_smut !! I had almost forgotten and that would have been an incredible loss ♥ ♥

Thank you for both of your comments! (I'm hoping to get to the ones on the entry soon.) Glad that you were reminded about a story that you had wanted to read! Very pleased that you enjoyed it, as well! Thanks! :D

*heckles Kiwi just because* I feel like a troll sometimes...

You are Neville.

Ha ha you know what, I can live with that. In a couple of years' time I get to chop a snake in half and probably make out with Luna.

Well, then, I hope you give your head a good knocking during this fall at least!

(And how will you feel when Luna leaves you for Ginny or Susan Bones or some pretty naturalist-scientist lady, huh? You gonna snuggle with your half of a snake?)

*Is clearly just jealous she doesn't get to make out wit Luna.*

Oh Neville!Me wouldn't monopolise Luna. She can get it on with anyone she likes, as long as she has a bit of love left for me.

You know, I like your thinking. I like your thinking a lot.
