First of all: YOU GUYS. <3

I just wanted to thank everyone who commented to the post I made about my dad. He died almost a year ago (Feb 22), and I've reached a point where I'm mostly okay, unless I'm not okay, and then I'm very, very not okay. I was going to answer them individually, but I was terrified I'd start crying again. Just know they were exactly what I needed, exactly when I needed it. ♥♥♥♥♥!!!


The problem with writing again after such a long break is that I suddenly want to write ALL THE THINGS. I just finished [livejournal.com profile] dysfuncentine and [livejournal.com profile] sirius_black, and I've got assignments for both [personal profile] hp_beholder and [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen, and yet I'm still creeping the claims posts of various prompt fests, looking for something that needs to be written.

Speaking of need -- the Harry Potter fandom absolutely requires an OotP AU where Regulus has survived and ends up working for the Order.

I'm thinking it would start early in the book's timeline, maybe right after Harry and Sirius' bittersauce conversation about the Black Family Tree. Dumbledore shows up to 12GP one night, ridiculously late, because Dumbledore is a badass and manners are for amateurs, and he has this guy with him, who is thin and scraggly and quiet, but who also looks a good deal like Sirius. Harry is really confused, and maybe capslocks a little, and Remus mostly looks like he's been slapped with a fish, but Sirius is completely fucking hysterical, like he nearly knocks over the kitchen table in his haste to hex Regulus back into the 70's, and there's a lot of shouting, until Dumbledore puts an end to the whole farce with a Shield Charm that's incredibly terrifying. Regulus tells everyone what happened, and his story is pretty much the same one we get from Kreacher in DH, except the part where Kreacher leaves Regulus in the cave, because Kreacher just couldn't do it, leave Master Regulus like that, with those hands, so he elf!Apparated Regulus out of there, and Regulus went into hiding, maybe with his Aunt Lucretia, or -- better yet -- Dumbledore (who's known all along, the meddlesome bastard) found a way to slip him into Azkaban, because no one would look for him there, obviously, so he was down the hall from Sirius the whole time. After that it's all awkward conversations and heavy silences, because Blacks just weren't bred to say I'm sorry, and Harry is still really confused, but he capslocks less, because Regulus is kind of nice to him.

I'm only vaguely interested in writing it, but if one of the usual suspects ([personal profile] midnitemarauder, [personal profile] snegurochka_lee, I'm looking at you) ended up writing it, I'd read the hell out of it. Bonus points if it devolves into Harry/Regulus or Harry/Regulus/Sirius.

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] dysfuncentine started posting! I'm pretty sure I won't actually anonfail this time. Okay, only half-sure.
