Look at that, amazing, nearly no one believed I would anymore - I’ve been slowly adding stuff to it (real slowly, it takes forever to update things), but if there’s anything between what I’ve posted here you’d like to see on it please do let me know!
As far as requesting I draw new specific stuff for it goes, it depends on what you request! Try asking, you never know!
After trying to go off alone for the fifth time in three days, Harry had become terrible at making excuses.
“Yeah, I’m just going to need you to tell me what’s going on, mate. It’s obviously not that bad. I know your something-is-terrible-let’s-pretend-it-isn’t face. That’s not it,” Ron demanded, blocking Harry’s only exit from the dormitory.
“I’m really not ready to talk about this,” Harry said.
“Ok, but if I’ve noticed something’s up, Hermione can’t be far behind. If you tell me now, I’ll help you come up with some believable story to tell her if you want to keep it to yourself longer.”
Harry looked up at Ron. After a deep breath, Harry said, “I’ve, sort of, er, I’m with someone.” He stopped. Is coming out supposed to make you feel like you’re ready to vomit? Is this feeling going to get worse or better once he gets the words out, Harry wondered.
“You gonna tell me who? or why you’re sneaking around like you’re trying to recreate sixth year?” Ron said, trying to keep the tone light.
Before he could think too much about it, Harry quickly answered, “It’s Malfoy.”
Ron’s face froze, eyes wide and mouth open. “Bloody hell. You’re serious? The entire wizarding world and you chose him?”
Harry relaxed a bit. “You hear that I’m telling you I like girls…and boys, right?”
“I don’t bloody care what you’re into. And Ferret-Face is nowhere near as horrible as he used to be, but it’s still Malfoy. I mean, are you so horny that you’ve gone mental? If that’s the case, fuck…I’ll suck your cock if it will get you thinking clearly.”
As if on cue, Malfoy is standing directly behind Ron. “You’re going to have to do a bit more than that to get me out of his system.”
Ron practically jumps right out of his skin. With a finger pointed in Malfoy’s face, he stutters through several attempted threats and insults before settling on “Be Nice!” forced through gritted teeth.
Malfoy laughs brushing Ron’s hand away from his face. “Of course, now will you please let Potter out of the room or should I threaten to tell your girlfriend about the kind of “help” you’re offering your friend?”
Ron steps aside, now filling only half the doorway.
Harry and Malfoy turn to leave and Ron can hear Malfoy’s voice trailing off down the hall. “See, I told you he loves you too much to keep you from someone as wonderful as me. He’ll just be mad at me for a while. I can handle that…”
On this day in music history: May 26, 1979 - “I Wanna Be With You” by The Isley Brothers hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week. Written by Ernie Isley, Marvin Isley, Chris Jasper, Rudolph Isley, O'Kelly Isley and Ronald Isley, it is the fifth chart topping single for the R&B/Funk family band from Cincinnati, OH. With the Isley Brothers coming off the the success of “Showdown”, their fourth consecutive Platinum selling album, they return to Bearsville Studios near Woodstock, NY to begin work on the follow up. Guitarist Ernie Isley come up with the initial idea for the funky “I Wanna Be With You”, with bassist Marvin Isley and their brother in law keyboardist Chris Jasper working out the basic structure of the song, then writing the melody and lyrics over the next few days. With the song finished, the other brothers add their vocals to the track. Issued as the first single from their seventeenth album “Winner Takes All” in April of 1979, “I Wanna Be With You” quickly zooms to the top of the R&B chart, hitting the pole position a month before the double LP arrives in record stores. Surprisingly, it is one of the few Isleys singles not to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, though it propels the album to Gold plus status in the US.
Do you or Lily bake? What's your favorite baked good? ~ironing Anon
Hello Ironing Nony! How nice to see you again! How has your Friday been going? I’ve been doing laundry of all things! XD
Lily, aka @writegowrite, is the baker in our happy Jedi/Sith family. She always bakes me a yellow cake with chocolate frosting for my birthday because she is a sweetheart and the cake is yellow like her Sith eyes. XD She can make biscuits from scratch and has been known to make a mean nutella waffle. She’s also pretty damn good at cooking too and is continually threatening to make me some kind of apple pie that is baked in bag? I’m not sure I’m remembering that correctly. She also makes a delicious San Francisco chicken. X9
My single and solitary claim to baking fame is The Bread (an eggy, sweet challah bread), which I make for holidays and family get-togethers or when I feel the need to frantically call my mother at 8 o’clock in the morning and beg for the recipe for the tenth time and make sure that the dough is not too wet and that I added the ingredients in the right order and where in the world is the yeast?!? Oh god! Is the mixer supposed to be making that noise? HEEEEEELLLLP!!!!!
I am firmly convinced that there is some kind of unwritten spell in recipe of The Bread and that if I do not call my mom in a half panic, trying to microwave butter and boil water at the same time while Lily offers to help that The Bread will not rise and whatever meal it is being prepared for will be RUINED.
Happily, Mom always picks up, hooting with delight at being called up from the Long Distance Mothers League and proceeds to patiently walk me through my yearly Gluten Trial By Fire.
Mom also deserves a special mention because one of my parents first dates was to go see Star Wars, which she thought was going to be silly and came out ADORING. The first thing she said to my Dad, who was rocking a truly epic seventies ginger fro, was “When can we see it again?” And if that doesn’t encapsulate me and my entire family’s approach to Star Wars, then I don’t know what does.
Thanks for swinging by and letting me take a walk down memory lane, Nony! Have a lovely weekend! ^___^/”)
