Hop over to [ profile] rarepair_shorts: HERE, and check out a ficlet by [ profile] digthewriter, written for one of my prompts.

Author: digthewriter
Recipient: madeleone
Title: Relax
Pairing: Kingsley/Hermione
Request/Prompt: Kingsley/Hermione: In her professional life, Hermione always has to be in control. She's so stressed out and Kingsley knows just what she needs—to let someone else be take charge. And he's a take charge kind of guy.
Rating: ~R
Word Count: 320

You all know that SH/HG is my OTP, but I've often thought that Kingsley and Hermione would make a great pairing too and wished there was more fanfic devoted to them. I loved this little snippet and can imagine where it might go from here. If anyone out there knows any good KS/HG fics, send the links my way, I'd love to read more of them.

Now that the weather is finally getting nice I've been busy in my flower beds getting them ready for summer. In the past week and a half I've spread 40 bags of mulch and it's looking good. During this process I've come to the conculsion that the local wildlife is trying to kill me. That I haven't had a heart attack yet is purely miraculous.

Just passing this on since I posted recently about it. Apparently GE will not be able to be restored to transfer to AO3 (see copy of FB post below). If anyone did donate, (like I did) none of the donations were accepted. Here's what I did and it worked fine, go into your paypal account and cancel  the payment for that transaction, the money will be put into your own pay pal account. You can leave it there for future paypal payments or have it transferred back to your bank account, (I think there might be fees to do that though). I donated $20 and I'm thinking of just sending $10 each to ASH and TPP via paypal to keep the fanfic love alive. :)  I'm very sad to see GE go as I liked the Hermioine Centric nature of the site. :(

As many may already know another archive is down. GE has been having difficulties for several months and has now been unaccessable for several weeks. There was a posting on the Granger Enchanted FB page( Here) earlier this week, that an effort is being made to save the stories by transfering them to AO3. To do this they are trying to raise enough funds to pay late fees, monthly fees, etc, to bring the archive back online long enough for the fics to be transfered.

I'm not personally affiliated with GE in any way, other than as a writer and a fan. I espcially liked Granger Enchanted as an archive because it's stories are Hermione centric. I've made a donation myself, and hope it helps, if not, at least I tried.

I'm going to copy the post here for those who are interested but are not on facebook (and I know there are people out there who aren't).

It's been a week since we got back from our Arizona trip so I thought I'd better sort through and post a few pictures. Otherwise I've been known to procrastinate then eventually forget about doing it. For anyone who missed it, we flew into Las Vegas, rented a car and drove 1.5 hours south east to a little town called Dolan Springs (the name baffles me as there was no hint of a springs anywhere that I could see--very dry and deserty). There we rented an small guest house at and ostrich ranch. ( The Joshua Tree Ostrich Ranch and Guest House).

Warning: Pic-spam ahead.

Awoke to the sad news of the loss of Alan Rickman. My children obviously know me well, as I received either a text, email or phone call from all four of them, commenting on the news and knowing how sad I would be.

Not being a huge David Bowie fan myself, when I heard about his passing earlier in the week, I was sorry to hear of it but not greatly affected. However the news of Alan's passing was heart wrenching to me. Like someone else here on my flist said--this one was personal.

When I became a Professor Snape fan and by association Alan Rickman, I started collecting his films and I have a good number of them already. I'll have to work on completing the collection, sadly I thought I'd have many more years of movies to enjoy and eventually to add from his body of work.

So I bid a sad adieu to a great man, he'll always be the voice of my Severus Snape.

I hadn't menioned it before but hubby and I are off on a trip. It was sort of a last minute adventure, which I didn't plan or make reservations for until just before Christmas. See, I had a Delta travel voucher where when you buy one round trip continental US ticket, you get a companion fare for free(pluss taxes etc.) BUT, it was going to expire Jan 31, so I had to start exploring ideas quickly. I really liked what we did when we went to Scotland and Ireland last year--we rented a car and stayed in cottages and explored the area we were in. So I started exploring similar choices and found Home Away. We were interested in Arizona, as it is somewhere we've never been before. Anyway I found this listing Near Kingman AZ for a guest house rental on an ostrich ranch. Yeah, I know weird, right? Well, guess where I am right now? Yup, that's right the Joshua Tree Ostrich Ranch and Guesthouse. And getting here turned out to be more difficult than I ever expected due to some flight delays.
