This holiday season, [info]daily_deviant held a "Kinky Kristmas" comment fest, where members got to post wishes, and any reader or artist could choose to fill them.

I was lucky enough to receive a wonderful Minerva/Rolanda story from a writer I really admire, [livejournal.com profile] tjswhatnot.

I wanted to fulfill wishes, too, and give Kinky Kristmas fun to some of the many DD members whose work I love. My grand plans included writing for TJ, who left an intriguing Minerva/Poppy prompt, and a couple of others.

Well, December being the madhouse that it always is, and me being the procrastinator that I always am, these grand plans did not come to fruition. But late on New Year's Eve (the official deadline for wish-filling), I managed to finish and post the following ficlet for another of my much-admired writers, [livejournal.com profile] mindabbles. So that you will not expect too much, I'll sound the usual caveats: I wrote it quickly! It's unbeta'd! I'd had a glass (well, okay, three) of champagne!

TJ, I still have plans to fill your Minerva/Poppy wish (not to mention plans to finish [livejournal.com profile] therealsnape's much-belated birthday fic), so stay tuned.

Today is National Pie Day in the US. (Seriously -- that's a Thing.)

Since I adore virtually any pie, sweet or savory (except peach and strawberry-rhubarb), I thought I would honor National Pie Day by giving you a Pie Fanfic.

A few years ago, a "thank-you comm" was created to honor the many fandom contributions of the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] therealsnape. Since TRS is a) a fan of Minerva/Poppy, and b) one of the best chefs going, I thought I'd combine these two elements into my tribute: a Minerva/Poppy food!fic.

Somehow, I never got around to posting the story anywhere else, but what better time to repost than National Pie Day?

Here's my entry for [info]deeply_horrible's "Bring Back the Bastard!" fest. As my ever-patient betas know, I waffled terribly over this fic. I couldn't have done it without you, dears, or without the support of [livejournal.com profile] verdeckt, the excellent mod.

I wrote this story about a year ago for [info]daily_deviant. The theme that month was "Bad Porn Clichés," and of the ones on offer, I chose the following: naughty nurse has exploits with patients or doctors and someone above corruption (priest, nun [add "trusted healer"], etc.) is corrupted

Here is my second entry in Remix Madness 2012. The original story, [personal profile] woldy's Escape Routes for a Stormy Night, was one of the standouts of the 2011 [info]hp_beholder fest, and I was delighted to have the chance to revisit both the excellent fic and the great pairing: Poppy Pomfrey/Amelia Bones.

The original contains a brief section about the colours Poppy uses to paint the house she buys with Amelia, and it's this section that gave me my point of entry for the remix. I gave Poppy a "condition" that I share: synasthesia, or the involuntary neurological understanding of one physical sense in terms of another. I don't know if synasthesia works quite the way I have it work in the story -- that is, to have a neurological link between colour and emotion -- but I liked the idea, so I went with it. As Arthur Conan Doyle said, when told that nearly all the racing details he'd included in "Silver Blaze" were wrong, "well, sometimes [a writer] must be masterful." I prefer to be "mistressful," but the idea is the same.

Although synasthesia can involve several different senses, my own version of it is a fairly common one: I see letters and numbers in color. Each letter and digit has its own consistent color, no matter what word or string of numbers it appears in. Like Poppy in the story, when I was a kid, I thought everyone saw the world this way, and I was astounded to learn that no one else I knew did.

Synasthesia hasn't been widely studied, but so far, there doesn't seem to be any particular medical benefit or drawback to the condition. For myself, I think it's helped make me a really strong speller: once I've seen a word a couple of times, I rarely misspell it, because if I do, I can spot the error pretty quickly: the word is not the right color.

Well. On to the story --
