Site Maintenance

   Posted by: Animealam   in Site News

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Site News

Wow! I can’t believe myself, two posts in one day when I haven’t  posted in months!

Yet it’s necessary.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done any type of maintenance to the site beyond updating WordPress, and the plugins I have installed on the site. At one point I tried to change the theme, but it didn’t come out right, so I went back to the one I already had and knew it worked for me.

A change is necessary though. This blog has kept the same look for at least three years, and it’s a bit dark. It’s also not quite good for movile devices. I do a lot of stuff on my iPad, have been known to work on my android cell phone, and if by some bizarre reason I don’t have them with me, I use my mother’s android tablet.

Trying to check the site, and actually revise some posts is very hard on small screens, which is why I’ve decided to experiment with simpler themes for the blog.

There is also some problem with this particular blog, it’s hard to log into with blog editors, on the iPad, and on the iMac (yes ran away from Windows to OX when I tested Windows 8). It’s even hard to work with the WordPress dashboard at times

Animealam’s Writing Corner was the first WordPress blog installed and ran. So I probably made a lot of mistakes while learning how to use it, and they are coming back to cause problems. It’s for that reason that I’ll be setting another blog where I’ll be organizing all the posts.

I’ll probably not migrate in case the errors are transferred as well. I’m not sure yet. I’ll have to see if it’s possible to use some type of re-direction so links to the old posts still find them in the new blog. I’m not sure when exactly I’ll start since I have to do some research first, but I wanted this posted.

New year ramblings

   Posted by: Animealam   in Site News

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Site News

It’s been a while since I last posted something here, or any of my other blogs. To be truthful I lost a bit of interest in blogging, and got distracted by other things in real life, and my writing.

I have been active writing fanfiction, although I’ve not posted anything to the sites like fanfiction.net, or Potions and Snitches.net. It’s not because I don’t want to, because I do, but because I have so many things I want to post, and yet… I’m not sure I should since all of what I have is unfinished, and most have no true names.

No Title 071, or Untitled 055, or even Unknown Title 010 tell nothing. Unfortunately I reached the conclusion I’m pants at naming my stories. The only exception are Snape’s Child, The Second Prophesy (which needs a major overhaul), and Starting Over.

Snape’s Child came in response to a challenge issued at Potions and Snitches.net. I simply loved the idea of it, and while it does not follow the challenge exactly I’m trying to comply with most. I have posted ten chapters already, and I have two more on the works with many ideas.

The main reason why I have yet to post in any fanfiction site besides my blog is because the Muses are slow with the inspiration.  I don’t want to leave them on hold for so very long. Like I have with Apprentice, Unexpected Child, Second Chance, Letters Truth and Hope, Another Chance at Childhood, and Present Time.

My other stories aren’t abandoned yet, and this year I will finish at least one. That is the only New Year resolution I made.

FINISH SOMETHING, ANYTHING!

It’s hard though, new ideas keep popping all the time, plot bunnies run rampant, yet none provide me with something more than the start, or on rare cases even the middle. So I get stuck, and they end in the bookcase for months until I remember them and get back to the story.

I will start uploading the plot bunnies (more like story bunnies) to the blog once I manage to capture them into Scrivener (I adore it, and it has helped to organize my work). I might even start posting on the fanfiction sites, if I manage to name my stories.

This entry is part 9 of 9 in the series Snape's Child

Title: Snape’s Child 9/?

Author: Animealam

Rating: PG-13

Pairing: Severus/Hermione, mentions of Severus/OFC

Warnings: Violence, Child abuse, Drama, Tragedy, OCC, Manipulative but not evil Dumbledore, Character Death, Bad Ginny, Bad Ron, Romance/Het, Alternate Universe, AU 5th Year, Good Severus, Adoption, Gender-Bender, Child Harry, Rape, Bad Sirius, Abusive Dursley, Pregnancy, Child Neglect, Contains references to HBP, and TDH, Post GoF.

Disclaimer: Nope, doesn’t belong to me. I only play with them a bit.

Summary: Based on the Challenge at Potions and Snitches Archive:

Hidden as Snape’s Daughter by carvell

Summary: Dumbledore never makes it to Harry’s trial (summer of 5th year) and Harry is sentenced to Azkaban to be kissed. Snape rescues him and Harry is hidden in plain sight, as Snape’s daughter; he ends up in Slytherin. Only Snape knows who he really is, the rest of the world thinks he’s dead from the Dementor’s kiss. No romance whatsoever.

Author’s Note: I’m basing this story on the challenge, although I’m not following it completely. Harry will be much younger. I wanted to try my luck at adding two other characters that are usually minor and last but not least there will eventually be some romance, although not for a while, and not for Harry. She is too young for that.

This story is just in the beginning stages, so I only have about three chapters captured in the computer, plus a whole lot of notes and ideas.

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series No Title 112

Title: No Title 112 – Prologue

Author: Animealam

Rating: R

Pairing: Girl Harry (Rhiannon)/Severus

Warnings: Time Travel, Dimension Travel, Girl Harry, Bad Sirius, Bad Ginny, Bad Ron, Master of Death Harry, Post The Deathly Hallows no Epilogue.

Disclaimer: Nope, doesn’t belong to me. I only play with them a bit.

Summary: Defeating Voldemort did not solve all the Wizarding World’s problem. If anything things got worse, so much worse. Once again it’s up to Harry to solve them, and perhaps save some people whlle doing it.

Author’s Note: This is one Story Bunny that has not left me in peace. Once again the Time Travel subject is present, as it has been in a really large number of Story Bunnies I’ve written lately.

I really like the subject of this fic. It came out in a rather surprising block of text, unlike most of the others in which I re-write (when I handwrite a story) every 2 to 5 pages until it’s the way I want it.

The Story Bunny still needs a lot of work. At the moment I’m trying to organize it, and set an ordely time line. Ideas kept popping as I wrote, so everything is scathered about, and more like a telegram than a full fledged story. It also needs more dialogues in the past part of the story. There’s just all prose and no action in the beginning. Although I believe it’s important to explain what led to the Time Travelling.

Anyway, this is just a taste. The author’s note is probably half the length of the whole Prologue.

Summary: Based on the Challenge at Potions and Snitches Archive:

Hidden as Snape’s Daughter by carvell

Summary: Dumbledore never makes it to Harry’s trial (summer of 5th year) and Harry is sentenced to Azkaban to be kissed. Snape rescues him and Harry is hidden in plain sight, as Snape’s daughter; he ends up in Slytherin. Only Snape knows who he really is, the rest of the world thinks he’s dead from the Dementor’s kiss. No romance whatsoever.

Author’s Note: I’m basing this story on the challenge, although I’m not following it completely. Harry will be much younger. I wanted to try my luck at adding two other characters that are usually minor and last but not least there will eventually be some romance, although not for a while, and not for Harry. She is too young for that.

This is now going, no longer a tentative story. I have ten chapters ready for posting, and I’m working on chapter eleven at the moment. I might begin posting in fanfiction.net, potionsandsnitches.net, and the general  category of HP Fandom during the week.

Now, while I place a pairing of Hermione/Severus, there won’t be much romance going. At least not until she is 18. You’ll have to read to see what I mean.

I’m also dealing with subjects that are difficutl to mention, but I don’t think I will be explicit. If I do it will only be posted here and probably HP Fandom.
