May?  
Look! It's May!

*goes back to lurking*

Ok, I'll write more... Er... *waves shyly* I shouldn't go so long without showing up, I know. It makes for awkward posts like this. I always say the same, but really, it's just that... Never mind. I have no explanation. *lol*

Contrary to what you might think, I haven't dropped off of the internet. In fact, I've been here quite often, even commenting sometimes. I also haven't left any fandom. If you go through those 1000+ comments on the sshg_exchange sign-up post, you'll find mine there. :0) The truth is that I've been reading a lot of fanfic, and it makes me a quiet fangirl. My Kindle is Heaven on Earth, I tell you!

The sad part of all the quiet time reading is that the art and fics I owe some people are yet to be done. For the lack of art I have a good explanation: my right hand was useless for a while again. It's better now, though.

For the lack of fics, I... *sigh* I've been writing, I have! The final chapter of "Not Only a Granger" is halfway done. There are only a few scenes to write, really. It doesn't mean it'll be done soon, although it might. I'll be using some of my free time to study for a test, what should send the muse away, but we'll see...

The test in question is to join the Navy. I kid you not! Bizarre, I know! *lol* I don't know what got into me. Although... I've been working with Navy officials, and they're nice to work with. It's very different from what I thought it would be. *shrugs*

In other news, I'm starting to plan my visit to the USA. I mean it this time! I was talking to annietalbot about this, and I want to see some snow, which means I should go during Winter. She tells me that there are no HP cons planned for that time of the year. :0( I'd love to meet you all, and without a con, that'll be almost impossible. Does any one here have any idea how to work around this problem? I would really love meeting as much of you as I can!

*hugs*

I know what you mean. Haven't been online much, and really don't have anything to say. Life is just the same-o-, same-o. Nothing exciting. Which can be good.

About joining the Navy... Being *in* the Armed Services is quite different from working *with* the military as a civilian contractor. And recruiters will promise the moon. Besides, if you join the military, we might lose you! No time for HP fanfics and art. ~winks~

Hmmm... Even though I'll be trying to join the Navy, it doesn't mean I'll actually go through with it if I'm called. I'll keep in mind what you said. We'll see... *hugs*

well... I was actually thinking about this after I left Aeternitas:

WE NEED A FIC CON!!!

I went to Aeternitas and it was great, but I was shy around all the people I didn't know from fic. I want to meet my Fic Flist!

I don't really know how to organize this or anything, but there is that.

We certainly NEED a FIC CON! I've never been to any kind of fandom-related con, so it would be great to be able to attend one some day (not so far from now).

I would be lost trying to organize something from here. It would be too awkward and sure to end up a failure. But I wouldn't mind helping out, if it was possible.

~squishes you~

Glad to hear you've been around and reading and writing :D

Ooooh - so exciting that you're going to visit the US. No idea how to solve your problem, but I hope someone thinks up a solution!

*squishes back*

I'm around, and I'll finally go to the US! I don't have a date, yet, but I want it too be soon. It has to be after November, though. I can't take a leave from work before that.

You should come with me! :0P

*hugs back*

I really want to visit Florida! I'll let you know if I'll be able to when things are more defined.

You're awesome friends! :0D
