Wotcher, Potter fans!

Oh my goodness, the twentieth anniversary of the first Harry Potter book – published on June 26, 1997 – is almost here. June 26, that's this coming Monday!

I did manage to write a fic in honor of the date (which I'll post on Monday), despite an intense month of deadlines and stuff, plus now being knocked out by some kind of awful respiratory illness. I'd wanted to do more rallying of "who else wants to write twentieth anniversary fics and all post them on that day??" ...but, yeah, see above re: work + illness.

BUT, if anyone else wants to write something anniversary-ish, even a drabble, I can attest to how satisfying and momentous it feels. :-)

Meanwhile, Holmestice is wrapping up and the RS Games are kicking off, so for a moment my two main fandoms are overlapping. Aw. Fandom is nice.

Today was my last day of work for this school year. (Sort of... I've been out sick for days, so I wasn't there to catch most of that year-end feeling. I shouldn't really have gone in today, either, but it was the last day and I needed to get my things and tie up some loose ends.)

I took out SO MANY BOOKS from our library for the summer...

You are so good at keeping tabs on these upcoming anniversaries! I'll be looking forward to what you've come up with, and the drabble thought is, um, quite tempting!

Being ill is always miserable, and that sounds particularly unpleasant. Do hope you'll feel better soon, and those waiting books should be the best kind of incentive to get well. :)

(The only thing I haven't managed to work on in all this is my final revision of River's story, but that's next up and then I'm going to write to you!)

Please do, whenever you want. :-) Btw, I keep trying to reply to your email and keep getting interrupted. I'll get there!

I've never had bronchitis but know it can be horrible. A good sign you're feeling better, but hope you're getting plenty of rest.

I hadn't thought of that at all, I must admit, but you're quite right; anniversary it is! And I love the idea of anniversary drabbles, excited to see what you've been doing on that front.

Goodness, being sick is the worst - I do hope you're feeling better ♥
