Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...
You are a confident person with a strong sense of self. You can be loud and jocular, and you don't really care who hears you. You don't spend too much time stressing about how other people see you. If they like you, well, good for them. If they don't like you, well, that's their own problem.
People need to earn your respect in order for you to really start taking them into consideration. You might bend yourself over backwards for a friend or family member, but you aren't going to give that sort of special treatment to any old Joe Blow. Your loved ones know that under that bold, brash exterior, there is a person who is loyal and even clannish at times. You will fight to defend your friends and family from any and all comers. With these special few, you drop that joking exterior and be your real self.
Your daemon's form would represent your confident ways, your joking and insensitive manner, and your secret tendency for softheartedness. He or she would probably help you criticize all the idiots whom you meet on a day to day basis, and back you up when you are on the defensive.

Read. This. Fic. I wasn't so sure about it at first (no offense intended whatsoever, my dear maja_li) because today has been a crap day and I wasn't sure if I could handle character death/angst today. But I loved this. It's a phenomenal premise, such original ideas, absolutely brilliant!

Non Faux Pas
Title: Enchantment; Loss
Prompt: 23. A snitch in time saves nine hours of Quidditch.
Summary: Harry wishes for one thing only.
GUH. There are really no words to describe this and do it justice. It's AU to the extreme - yet still stays true to canon characterizations. There is such a feeling of longing throughout the entire story, and a hopeful ending the relieves the ache. Truly beautiful.
Title: Veiled Threats
Prompt: 18. "This one time, at Hogwarts..."
Warnings: Mpreg, misbehaving Veela, dirty words, dirtier sex.

According to the authorities, the savior had been kidnapped and the Minister had no other choice than to issue a warrant for the immediate arrest of Draco Malfoy on charges of treason.
Veela! Oh, how I love a good veela fic. And this one is great! It is the perfect blend of creature fic classics and new innovations and creativity. If you have a kink for creature fics, you must read this one!!

Draco Malfoy in 'Drunk as a house elf'
Title: Interpreting Draconis
Team: AU! (YES! We rock!)
Prompt: 2. "Time is Galleons, little bro, time is Galleons."
Warnings: Implied minor character death.
Summary: Draco, the Deaf son of a wealthy businessman, has always had the best of everything, including a habit for rapid signing and a reputation for having a short fuse. When his father disappears, the interpreters who have been on the receiving end of Draco's attitude and temper refuse to work for him. Enter Harry, our 'new on the block' interpreter with a heart of gold, exemplary skills, and a few secrets in his pocket.
So of course I adore everything that dacro writes, and this is no exception. It's non-magic, but I love, love, LOVE Harry's characterization - it's dead-on for his canon personality. Draco is too, because I know deep down that Draco is a big ol' softie and JKR just got him a bad rep. I also love that dacro informs us about the Deaf community, but it never sounds wordy or over our heads. Fantastic!!! Go read it now!
So go read it!

Summary: Ron & Hermione walk in on something they did not want to see
I was in the mood to overdose with fluff, and Elizabeth totally delivered!! So check it out while I go have a peanut butter & jelly sandwich for dinner. :)
We saw more sights than I even considered being able to see, and I learned many things, such as:
-Elizabeth and I are not big on travel plans.
-It's fun to stay at the YMCA, especially when there's cake, old people, balloons, and a really really Italian guy named Michael.
-Picabo Street now works in the Intensive Care Unit.
-Adam will always indulge my "your mom" jokes, but he is spoken for.
-If you are ever in NYC and want to take a bus tour, there is a very nice man named Latif who can help you. Just, uh...don't tell him I sent you.
-Last week, a guy stood up on a tour bus and was decapitated by a street light. Dead. True story.
-The legal age of consent in the UK is 16. Which makes me really want to go to the UK and track down a cute British boy named James.
-There is only one building in NYC that was not the tallest building in the world at any point in time.
-Cats can play fetch.
-And finally, Daniel Radcliffe's penis is proportionate to his body, and his testicles appear to be of average size.
( My feelings on Equus - prepare to be disappointed in my descriptive skills )
Also, on Saturday, we got to have dinner with bk7brokemybrain! Because my bff is the only person in my RL who knows about my HP slash fascination, although he's not really into it, it was so nice to have a discussion with people who understand why I love it. I only wish we could have talked even longer. Oh well, there's always next trip! :)
