The Meta Fic  
Hoorah and huzzah and so on and so forth, I have finally posted the slightly odd fic I wrote for metamorfic_moon on Saturday! :D  It was weird -- I very rarely write anything of this length all in a stretch, certainly not on a single subject, certainly not maintaining my focus the whole time.  It was all written within a period of about twelve hours, too, though fairly intermittently. O_o

Weird how well the characters came back.  Or maybe I got them all wrong, and I'm delusional. XD


Title: Buyer’s Remorse
Author: </a></b></a>tierfal
Rating & Warnings: K+, and a criminal surplus of parenthetical statements
Prompts: Homenum revelio, the junk shop, Day of Truth, and Drama/Humor (though it's really more like Drama/Humor/Romance/Angst...?)
Word Count: 3763
Summary: Nymphadora Tonks didn’t go on shopping trips -- she went on adventures.
Author’s Notes: Slightly strange, faintly bleak humor in this one. I was in a weird place and stayed in that weird place, writing weirdly, until the thing decided it was finished… just before two in the morning. XD There’s a lot of me in it, more even than usual, which tends to do create this sort of tone in fics. Thanks very much to </a></b></a>eltea, as always, for the beta. :) Apologies for the lack of British convention -- rushed American at work :O -- and for the egregious genre over-classification. (Last things, I promise -- it’s “Inside Out” by Eve 6, if you’re curious, and… Near, you little sneak, how did you get in there?!)

(Fake Cut of Majesty)

Shit, the excessive agony of almost four thousand words of HTML formatting has severely impacted my errand-running time.  RAR.

Also, I need to vote.
Feeling: confusedconfused

*Squee!!!* So adorable at the end there. I love all the commentary from both of them. How DID Near manage to sneak in there? :O He's quite talented, that one. But yeah, I loved it. Now, off to o-chem homework...

Heeee. :3

I was extremely amused by the fact that I had five characters in four thousand words, and that one was a vase, and one was a cameo. XD

Near is a sneaky little bugger. 8D

Have fun...? O_o ...reminds me what I should be doing... >_> Heh...

*here via metamorfic_moon*

For some reason comments weren't working over there, so I decided to show my appriciation here instead...

I thought the fic was pure brilliance, I loved the quirky tone of the writing and Remus' imaginary answering machine message made me laugh and spit tea all over the keyboard. I always thought the beep sounded like a censored swear word, glad I'm not alone.

Anyway, loved the fic and I gave it a special rec at my journal!

Aw, shucks. Hooray! ^^

Thanks very much! (And I hope your keyboard isn't too much worse for the wear...! XD) I was just thinking about the beeping and realized, and it seemed like such a Remus-y observation. :D

Thank you so much! ^^

You're welcome. My keyboard is made of tough stuff, it can withstand tea stained assaults. ;)

Remus would have a slightly skewed view of things, I think.
