Fanfic talk, grump

Didn't sleep more than an hour or two last night. Grumpy. I go through the FA chapter owl mailings at work, since this is where I do most of my fic-reading. Patience shorter than usual, summaries seem worse than usual:

Harry is back to Dursleys... Snape is coming over to him there to help him learn how to Apparate, and at the end, there is a lot of dead people.
Sounds like Snape really shouldn't be teaching then...

In an attempt to save her dying mother, Ginny Weasley strikes a desperate bargain with Draco Malfoy. She needs money . . . and he needs a wife.
Yeah, because Draco would have such a hard time finding a wife, right?

Returning from a long and painful summer, in which he was raped and beaten by his father, Draco finds he has feelings for his worst enemy, Harry Potter.
Beaten by his father? Maybe I can buy that. Raped? Uh... no.

In this chapter: explanations, Professor McGonagall pays a visit to the Hospital Wing … but why should she be trying to snog Madam Pomfrey senseless?
Why indeed. No, wait, don't answer that.

Sleepy kitty time

Zzz.

Ran an impromptu ONS tonight. Was fun. Named a character Mark after mallen. While he did have a temper, he was also totally straight (and got the pretty girl in the end!), so mallen should be happy. There was this part about a bisexual PC drooling at him, but that wasn't my fault! Honest!

Another NPC, a smart but plain girl, got named after Hyper's (peppygrowlithe's) Melissa. ("Code Growlithe", baby!) The two other NPCs weren't based on anyone, really.

Had other stuff to write about, but it's flown out of my head. Zzz. Bedtime.

Edited to add: Catlove is being a serious bitch. If I haven't replied to email or LJ comments from you, it's because I can't get to my mail. Supposedly they're working on the problem...
