Happy New Year!



Here's hoping 2009 doesn't suck like 2008 did -- and if your 2008 didn't suck (which appears to be the case for a small minority of lucky bastards individuals), here's hoping your 2009 is EVEN BETTER. I don't make New Year's Resolutions because they're like a joke that's been run into the ground by a bunch of ninjas riding elephants. Twice. But here's a silly tradition from the former Soviet Union! Before you drink your Obligatory New Year's Champagne, prepare a small piece of paper and a pen/pencil somewhere you can get at them easily. Also stash a book of matches or a lighter and a small fire-resistant dish/vessel. When the clock starts striking midnight, take out the piece of paper and write down your fondest wish. That done, burn the piece of paper and pour the ashes into your champagne glass (don't hold the paper over your glass, because unless you're Vin Diesel, you'll drop it before it burns fully and it won't all turn to ash... though you could use tongs, I suppose...). Drink it all down before the last chime of the clock, and your wish will come true in the new year! IT REALLY WORKS. OCCASIONALLY. IF IT DOES NOT WORK, IT MEANS YOU DID IT WRONG. >.>

The highlight of the year for me was the triple con experience -- Portus, Terminus, and Dragon*Con -- I miss everyone and can't wait to see you next year at Sock Con, Azkatraz and SDCC! :D Also in 2008, I discovered Reborn, and, shortly afterwards, Bleach. Both still continue to make me happy -- Bleach especially; seriously, you just have to mention Bleach and I suddenly develop a superpower: the inability to frown at you disdainfully! XP

HERE'S TO A 2009 FILLED WITH HAPPINESS, FRIENDSHIP, HEALTH, LOVE, AWESOME FOOD, LOTS OF MONEY, SQUEE, AND PORN!
*champagnes you all into submission*


In other end-of year news, posting has concluded at hp_yule_balls and hd_holidays! I usually don't do this, but these were my last fests, and so I bring you a guessing poll. :D Anyone who guesses all five fics correctly gets a fic with pairing[s]/prompt[s] of your choice (fandoms can be HP, Reborn, or Bleach). You don't have to specify the exact title, just pairing + premise (or just premise for the H/D Holidays fics) will be fine. If you beta-read one of them (but not more than one), you can still guess.

Poll #1323439 Guess those fics >:D

Which fic did f write for hp_yule_balls [#1]?

Which fic did f write for hp_yule_balls [#2]?
