I have been revisiting my much-earlier writing days, and reverting to poetry.  Here's the first poem I have written in nearly 30 years:

Sorry I have been incommunicado!  I have a boyfriend as of late January (my first in twenty years), and I'm finding my new relationship rather, er, absorbing.  In particular, not only have a lot of my attention and emotional energy been given to him, but I've been emailing him a lot and have started keeping a journal, so issues I had been using fiction and hp meta to explore (such as truthfulness and trust), I'm now writing about more personally and directly.  I have NOT left fandom, and I have been working a little on at least one meta--just, um, very very slowly.  Other things keep coming up instead.  If I decide actually to abandon UA, I'll at least post the rough and incomplete chapters for your delectation; if I decide to abandon Folly, I'll let you know.

And I am still reading what others write, so feel free to post on DTCL or to send me recommendations.

Thanks for your understanding!

Nor am I Borrowing, actually.  Sorry not to be writing--I spained + broke my finger early Dec, and typing is difficult.  (Left hand, but still, pecking rather than typing.)  The doctor said originally 6-8 weeks, so I kept thinking, next week I'll be able to type again, but it's not healing up properly.

So, probably no long posts for at least another month--I can think and make longhand notes,but typing anything lengthy hurts.

It took me a long time even after reading DH for me to give up my Harry-impression of Dumbledore as a wise and benevolent mentor.  Okay, a ruthless and manipulative one, but still generally wise, and generally benevolent with people's best interests at heart.  Here's a list of some of the essays that made me change my mind:

Snape’s life has been a series of spectacular errors of judgment, to put it kindly.

This has to have been his worst. 

Chapter Summary:  The headmaster can be very persuasive.

“He certainly knew what was right, nor could she fix on any one article of moral duty evidently transgressed, but yet she would have been afraid to answer for his conduct.  She distrusted the past, if not the present…. who could answer for the true sentiments of a clever, cautious man, grown old enough to appreciate a fair character?” Jane Austen, Persuasion
