Fic: "No War Should Be Fought Alone" Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor& Shadow of War - Talion / Ratbag
Tags: ,

NoWarShouldBeFoughtAloneAO3Banner.png

So, I may have Done A Thing, in collaboration with an amazing writer, draylon (who doesn't have a blog), to celebrate the latest big update of the video game Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.
As the summary says:

Shadow of War shows Ratbag running away from Talion, and that’s the last we see of him.

Ever wonder where he might have gone?


If you have ever wondered, then the first chapter of our answer to that question is up on AO3

“Dora tells me you were surprised by the 'Drarry Rokz' Tumblr,” said Remus later that evening. “You aren't the only one.“

“I had no idea.” Severus gave up on a sternly worded letter to Draco that began with “what are you doing” and ended with “owl me at once.” “How long has this been going on?”

“Longer than Harry is willing to admit.” Remus dropped into his favorite chair. “People are writing fiction about this. Acting like Ginny and Astoria - “

“Are also having an affair,” said Severus, and brought up the “Ginstoria 4evah!” Tumblr.

“It's called a 'fan site',” said Nymphadora after Severus had calmed down. “Draco was a fixture in the gossip columns after the War, just like Harry, and some people put two and two together.”

“What 'two and two together'? They hated each other! The way they talked about - “ Severus stopped as a picture of his two most memorable students gazing intensely each at other appeared on the phone. Neither's wife was anywhere in evidence. “No. No.”

“There've been rumors for a while,” said Nymphadora gently. “You know Harry moved out two weeks ago?”

“Actually, no.”

Reminder: Con.Txt charity raffle's coming up soon!

I'll bet that once upon a time, you acquired one or more cool things for a fandom you loved. A t-shirt, framed fan art, season one DVDs of a series, a complete set of rare action figures.

And now? You don't care about that show or movie or book much anymore, except in the most nostalgic of ways. The t-shirt's never been worn, the DVDs have been watched once, the art and action figures are gathering dust.

So!

If you're going to CON.TXT or if you have friends going and you'd like to support two worthy charities, consider donating some of your cool fannish new/nearly new collectibles to the raffle!

Full info here: https://con-txt.dreamwidth.org/53492.html

“Of course it's a surprise. They loathe each other.” Severus clicked on a link and immediately wished he hadn't. “They almost got into a fist fight on the night Remus and I had our housewarming!”

“Oh, Sev. Sev, Sev, Sev.” Nymphadora lightly smacked her forehead. “They weren't fighting that night. Why do you think Harry nearly broke up with Ginny on the way home?”

Severus froze as memories of decades of arguments, complaints, and animosity surfaced. Had he truly been that blind? “Nearly broke up?”

“Oh God.” Nymphadora sighed. “For a gay man, you have terrible gaydar.”

“Whomever designed this microblog is a terrible speller.” Severus rubbed his eyes and blinked at the phone. “Why did he leave out the 'e' in 'Tumbler'? Why name a blog after a drinking glass? This is – “

His jaw dropped at a clever drawing of two young men in Hogwarts uniforms, one dark and somewhat disheveled, the other fair and neatly dressed. “That – that looks like Draco. And Potter.”

Nymphadora raised her tea cup and drank. “Huh. It does, doesn't it? Scar's a bit off-center, though.”

“They're kissing. Harry and Draco.”

“This is a surprise?”

Question of the Day # 22

[community profile] questionoftheday asks: What do you hope makes a comeback, or becomes popular again? (question submitted by [personal profile] firewhispers)

My answer:

1) The notion that Nazis are evil and that there's no ~two sides to that issue.

2) Having a president who the world respects. It'd be nice if I respected them, too, BTW.

3) The truth.

4) Rubenesque figures, LOL.

5) Clear air and water (especially for Flint!).

What about you guys? Anything come to mind?

Weekly Fic Wrap Up: Week 28, 2018

I hope everyone's having a fabulous Monday!

Mine started out with me having a scan and almost fainting afterwards. *rolls eyes at self*
Apparently I'm old now and can no longer jump up onto my feet from lying down. *sigh*
The RRT (rapid response team) people were very sweet, though. Once they figured out I wasn't having a heart attack or anything life threatening. :P

Anyway, on to the fic. I was a bit short of my planned goal last week, so fingers crossed I make it up this week!

Ali's list of Fics: July 9th - July 15th )
And here's what's coming up:
Ali’s To-Do/WsIP List )

So I'm beginning to compile my tentative list of holiday fests in which I plan to participate.

A few are definite, as long as the are still being hosted ([info]daily_deviant's Kinky Kristmas, [community profile] adventdrabbles, [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas, [community profile] snape_potter's Snarry Swap, [community profile] dracoharry100 and [community profile] slythindor100's Christmas Challenges), and a few are tentative ([livejournal.com profile] hd_erised - if I can get in, [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost- which may just be a matter of how much time I have, [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus - just because I've never done it before).

So, what fests are you guys doing?
Any hot new fests I need to know about?

The next few weeks were quiet. Severus allowed Nymphadora to teach him about social media, the Board of Governors reviewed application packet, and Minerva calmly began transferring her personal property to her retirement cottage.

It was all very normal. And frustrating.

Very, very, very frustrating.

“It's two weeks to the beginning of term and nothing.” Severus glared at the salamander on the hearth, which cowered behind an andiron. “Nothing!”

“Calm down,” said Nymphadora. She brought up a website on her phone and crooked a finger at him. “Here. I've found a Sex Pistols Tumblr. You need the distraction.”
