Fic Recs!

Sorry to startle anyone, as it's been so long since I've posted anything. But I'm reading so many wonderful fics during fest season, I just had to rec them to others who love to read good fanfic! (If I remember, I'll update this once the reveals are posted.)

This is a FANTASTIC story all about Argus Filch and Mrs Norris and ... oh, just go read it!

Title: Haeligeweille
Author: Anonymous
Recipient:maiathoustra
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 8052
Characters and/or Pairings: Argus Filch, Mrs Norris
Summary: When two Unspeakables set out on a bright summer day to continue their arcane research into holy wells, no one, least of all Argus Filch and Evadne Norris, expects it to end as it does. The bitterness of life without magic is pervasive, corrosive, and there is little light to find their way. One day, though, they'll walk that sunny path again.
Warnings: Canon-typical violence
Disclaimer: These characters are not mine
Author's Notes: The story of how Argus Filch and Mrs Norris found their way to Hogwarts and out again. It is a love story. Thanks to T for beta reading.

75 Absolutely Amazing Photos - 61-75

A friend sent me this list of photos in an email the other day. This is such a crazy long list of (large) photos that I'll try to break it into bitesized cuts. I keep going back and staring in amazement at some of them. All of these photos are works of art, but sometimes it's because of the beauty of nature, other times it's timing the perfect capture, and still others it's inventiveness of composition.

There are so many photos that strike my fancy, so many locations I'd love to visit...



I hope you enjoy all of these!!!

Update on Theresa :(

For those friends who know mischievous_t, but might not have seen this update over on smokingbaby.

Theresa is in the final stages of her illness. We're told that she's sleeping more and more and eating less and less.

Her family and friends are with her constantly, and she knows that she is loved, both by those physically near her and by all of us who are far away.
