INFORMATION

Ok, so as some of you are no doubt aware, I am in the process of rewriting most of my fics and migrating them over to AO3. I will be keeping my FF account, but there won't be any updates until I finish rewriting. When that happens, I will post chapters in the SAME FICS so that any alerts are preserved. In the meantime, you can access the rewrites as they are posted on my AO3, http:// archiveofourown. org/ users/ CynicInAFishbowl (just remove the spaces).

But I 100% guarantee that that won't be happening for a while.

And now, feel free to read the rest of my profile :)

Hullo there.

At the moment, I'm working on a not insignificant number of fics, all of which are in differing states of neglect, set out as follows.

And George (HP): The death of Fred was the only point in the Harry Potter series when I cried. More than anything else, I couldn't help but feel for George, now missing his other half. This is my account of how he got on with things and generally became a functioning person. Raging continuity errors in the first few chapters (which I am currently remedying in my rewrite), but otherwise, some good, clean fanfiction.

Moving Forward (Twilight): This one was at the request of a friend. It's the only fic I'm not first rewriting, so this is the one most likely to be updated.

Nervous Laugh (Harry Potter): My first HP fic, so I'm always going to have a bit of a soft spot for it. In the midst of a brutal and far-reaching rewrite. I promise I will finish it soon, because I'm already a ways into writing the sequel. So bear with.

The Awkward Moment When One's Pianist Has Shingles (HP): I was writing head canon on my fanfiction tumblr, and this idea popped into my head. I ignored it for a while, but it was a persistent bugger, and thus now I am writing this fic. Not being rewritten, just lacking inspiration at the moment.

Troy in a space of time somewhat less than an hour (Troy): My first fic that I didn't in a fit of hindsight delete. I think this is because 13 year old me was only good at satire. Plot was beyond me back then. Thank heavens at 19 I've improved somewhat. I promise that at some point I will rent Troy and finally finish this god-forsaken fic. Eventually. Just don't hold your breath.

Well That Explained A Lot (Twilight): I started writing this one in my latest hospital stint, and by Jove, it's the best writing I've produced in confinement... ever. Unfortunately, as with most of my early works, there was way too much emotion for me to keep up, so it's being rewritten.

Antepenultimately, I have a tumblr for general funsies. Feel free to check it out: adelatur(dot)tumblr(dot)com.

Penultimately, I have a tumblr set up upon which is made up of head canon for my Harry Potter universe. Toddle over to cynicinafishbowl(dot)tumblr(dot)com

Finally (or I could extend the grammatical tomfoolery and say 'ultimately'), I wish I had the writing ability to pull off a Hannibal (books) fic. But I know I'll never be that good.

Don't shove a tuning fork into any facial orifices, and never separate a simple man from his cheese.

One last thing, I'd just like to give a shout out to listenWITHyourHEART (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2265104/) who is basically my hero for saying all the lovely things she did about me. She's an absolute darling who actually inspired me to stop procrastinating and actually get on with some more writing.

Thanks for that.

Your Eyes Can't Lie To Me by listenWITHyourHEART reviews
Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing to do. Rose is kidnapped & escapes 4 mo. later, but with no memory of her captivity. & things just seem to get worse: an affliction without a cure, personal revelations & still, the usual teenage drama. Life is never easy for a Weasley.

"I must say, it is quite rare to find a Tribute for whom being reaped was only the second most dreadful thing to happen to her on Reaping Day."

Necrophilia. Paedophilia. Incredibly straightforward and rudimentary plotline. Complete lack of synonym usage. This is the equivalent of reading the entire twilight saga, but without actually sacrificing a few days to get it done.
