2020 December 19th - Lunchtime
Xmas shopping and two glasses of red wine with supper sapped whatever energy I still had left yesterday, so it's a saturday update this week. Glancing down at my notepad with the current timeline for Gamer Neighbour written down on it, dang, lots of chapters for very few days in real time. But once things are properly set up, I can just highlight a few interesting bits, but skip ahead a bit instead of devoting 2-4 chapters for every day during the summer, so it doesn't take until chapter 50 before we reach Hogwarts. :)

Beer'n whisky got in the way of updating yesterday, so it's another lunchtime update. Hope ya'll had a good couple of days, or as good as they could be during this weird pandemic. I'll certainly be happy to see the back of 2020 and hope 2021 isn't yet another craptastic festival of a dissapointing year. The fic is still on the slice-of-life:y bits, but at least I can almost taste the World Cup approaching, after which we'll get to Hogearts and the Tri-Wiz.
2020 December 30th - Just after midnight
Almost astonished that I'm still managing to stay focused on a single story, instead of flitting back and forth between fifteen different ones, but Gamer Neighbour has indeed been the only story I've worked on for more then a month straight now. I did look back at my Kim Possible Smart trilogy and read through both what has been uploaded and what hasn't yesterday while waiting for the oven to spit out my supper and found it funnier then I recalled. That may just have to be the next project after Gamer Neighbour is finished.

Hm, formatting vanished from chapter 6, so I made a new attempt at uploading it. Seems better now. Sorry if update notices went out, I hope they didn't.

Bah, never do spellchecking and final tweaks drunk. Was off celebrating my uncles birthday yesterday, then kicked up Word and did spellchecking once I got back home, then uploaded chapter eight before sodding off to bed. Had constantly spelled Lightening instead of Lightning, which meant it passed the automated spell check just fine, but made the potion sound more like a mass color changing thing instead of an electric attack thing. Ah well, the imagery of a bunch of Men in Black suddenly turning into Men in White is amusing too. :) But in case you get a notification of an update, it's because of that. Thanks to chinlamp for pointing it out or I likely wouldn't have noticed for a while.
Also took the opportunity to add a bit more on the Oath-swearing, can't expect everyone to be aware of how I've differentiated between different sort of Magical Oaths in other older fics, especially since two of them are now removed from this site. Someone must have reported the naughty stuff in them I guess.
Highly enjoying both positive and negative reviews, took the opportunity to catch up on them this morning while trying to rehydrate from yesterday. Fun to see both the peeps liking and peeps hating what I put up for public perusal.

Another week, another update.
As stated in the end AN for chapter nine, I should probably compensate a bit for being an evil bastard, so here's some mixed quotes from future chapters that I found amusing and not quite so spoiler:y as other teasers I've had here in the past.
"Please tell me that some responsible adult have given you 'the talk'? Even if you have to lie to me, please tell me that!" Lily shouted in a panicked tone of voice.
"Is there something you want to tell us? You've already Possessed me and now you're suggesting Possessing my mother too. Did you want to be a red-haired girl when growing up or something?" Violet interjected and Nick chuckled again, shaking his head in wry dismay.
"How could I explain anything? I was downstairs in the bath while you were looking into something wonky you'd discovered involving my protection and my mothers body. Then I heard screaming in the middle of my bath and when I got upstairs I discovered you mucking about with Necromancy! I'm still waiting for an explanation myself!" Violet snapped and threw her hands up into the air in frustration.
"James thought it was the height of hillarity to Glamour himself into someone else and scare the pants off other students with his disembodied head act. He got pretty good at emulating Minervas voice, so quite a lot of students would occationally freak out and tell stories of the disembodied head of Professor McGonagall haunting the hallways and broom closets of Hogwarts. I think one terrified Hufflepuff actually tried to Excorcise her once, believing that she was some sort of poltergeist in human disguise." Lily snorted, shaking her head as she recalled the immature school antics of the man she eventually married, once he grew out of silly childish pranking and the immense immaturity of his earlier life.
"You're my daughter and I am proud of you. I will always support you." Lily reassured her little girl, but a strained expression appeared on her face in spite of her assurance. "But come on?! Care and Divination? We used to call that the route to future crazy cat lady! You'll be surrounded by cats and sipping tea, stroking the cat in your lap as you try to read patterns in your tea cup before you know it!" she finally snapped.
"You know, it's probably a good thing that you're self-employed." Violet responded after a few moments of silence, in which she'd had multiple pretty unpleasant images flash through her mind. "You certainly wouldn't be able to work as a Healer with this atrocious a bed-side manner and blunt way of speaking. Or after stating outright that you want to try and get me drunk."
"Wondergirl? Kind of appropriate." Tonks mused with an expression that flitted between shocked, confused, amused and curious, then shook her head. "Alright, I actually have tomorrow off, so I can have the drink I so sorely need now, then get some answers and explanations, then drink some more in an effort to forget everything I asked and probably didn't like the answers to." she declared.
END OF NOTES
I am past my fortieth year on this planet and will soon enough be closer to fifty years then I am to fourty. A Swedish fanfiction freak who spends a bit of time now and then reading and writing fanfiction. I do have a life outside of fanfiction however, so don't go expecting my stories to be updated with any sort of regularity. If one of my stories has more then one update a year, count yourself lucky! If I have to chose between spending time with my loved ones or sit cooped up in front of my computer writing fanfiction, I'll chose my loved ones nearly every single time.
If a story of mine ends with "THE END! ( For now... )" it means that it's not finished yet and that at least one more chapter will be making an appearance, sooner or later... ... Most probably later, much later, considering my erratic updating shedule. :) So don't even bother pleading for rapid updates as I have a life outside of fanfiction and have no desire to put the former aside for the later.
If it ends with "THE END!" without the "( For now... )" it means, surprisingly enough, The End. No more to add on this particular story, unless I write a sequel or something somewhere down the line.
I have never dropped a story and got no plans on doing so either. It's just that you may have to wait for quite a while before the next chapter shows up. :)
