So, out of my characters Cormac, Hamish and Miles eventually become professional Quidditch players, all of them Keepers. Ron was also a Keeper at Hogwarts, and I nearly made Tiago a Keeper instead of Seeker. (ETA: And now I've remembered that, back in Feinted, Filipa was a reserve Keeper.)

I clearly seem to have a Thing.

I absolutely LOVE Hufflepuff boys. I'm torn between wanting to pet their heads or laughing my arse off.

Oh, for heaven's sake, Cormac. Stop fluttering between being an almost decent human being and the world's biggest prat. Declan People will start thinking you suffer from split personality.

Needless to say, he's taking the "Potter stinks" business very seriously indeed. Oh course, if he's like that about someone he doesn't really know that well, imagine how he would be acting if Harry was a cute girl.

Once again calling all roleplayers interested in trying out a new game to go and join us at [info]gobletmods!

The year is 1994, the Triwizard Tournament has been reinstated, and Hogwarts has two champions, which is causing some rifts amongst the students - and Rita Skeeter has just made things worse with her little green quill.

There's still plenty of slots to fill, but what we're looking forward to seeing in game right now is:
* Seventh years. We need more of these around, stat.
* Fifth year boys. The only one in game right now is Cormac McLaggen, who desperately needs the friendship of some like-minded possessors of testosterone to keep him sane.
* Beauxbatons boys. Again, we're seriously lacking on that respect. The two boys meant to dance with the Patils at the Yule Ball are especially welcome.
* Angelina Johnson, Kenneth Towler and the Weasley twins. Show some Gryffindor pride (and some Team Harry support)!
* Roger Davies. He has a BFF (Hamish Fraser), a recent ex (Amelia Higgs) and a future Yule Ball date (Fleur) in game waiting for him.
* Stebbins. Three dormies (with whom he went to a Halloween party in themed costumes) and a future date are also waiting for him.
* Adrian Pucey. His on-and-off (currently off) girlfriend is in game - plus it would be interesting to play with the fact he wasn't part of the Slytherin team the previous year. *eyes Rowling warily*
* Siblings of existing characters. More specifically, Gillian Capper, Armand Szczepanski and the yet nameless older brother of Kee Connolly.
* Muggleborns! Both OCs and canon names (when they work with canon, of course) are welcome.
Interested? Then come and join us!

With the arrival of the foreign schools, [info]gobletmods seems to have exploded. Awesome. I can't wait to see how things will go once the champions are announced.

By the way, Mel, Cormac thinks you should stop being such a pain and let him objectify women to his little heart's content. I never thought I'd feel like petting a guy's head for being a sexist pig, but I guess there's a first time for everything.

Also, I'm amused at the fact Hamish put his name in the Goblet out of sheer stupidity and is now facepalming and blaming Cass.

And for the enjoyment of all the Accio Goblet people on my flist, have a silly screencap. )

I changed my CDJ's layout. Initially I was just thinking of doing something Halloweenish for the season, but ended up going for a more Hufflepuff-ish theme. Well, something that will become Hufflepuff-ish once I replace the blueish-grey background, anyway.

IJ notifications are driving me nuts, especially when it comes to my mod duties. While I received some notifications for comments left on my CDJ and character journals more or less in time, it took some 15 hours between the time an application was submitted to [info]gobletmods and the time said submission reached my inbox, and 10 hours between a request for a re-hold and my getting the notification.

I'm still feeling a bit poorly, but I've been fighting it by drinking copious amounts of chocolate tea, reading Diana Wynne Jones and watching Doctor Who, and it seems to be doing the trick perfectly.

Oh, you two. Don't ever change.

Incidentally, it just hit me that a ship name for Cormac/Mel would be Melmac. In other words, their love is orange and hairy and has a big snout.

Aaaaaaaaand that's the signal that I should go to bed asap.

It's finished!

PS: Yet another shameless plug for [info]gobletmods. School has began, Moody has turned Malfoy into a ferret AND WE NEED A CEDRIC DIGGORY. My boy Hamish (*points at clip above*) would also like to see his dormmate (and possibly BFF?) Roger Davies, and Cormac needs male friends.

Aug. 1st, 2012

Starting today, holds at [info]gobletmods are officially open!

School-era game, set during GoF, starting with the Quidditch World Cup. Opens August 15.

WE NEED A CEDRIC! Ahem. I mean, come and join us!
