The Husband Meme

My, my, I went an entire year without updating. Well, here is something that should have been posted last year, if h311ybean had had the patience to sit down and finish it.

The Husband Meme

1. He’s sitting in front of the TV: what is on the screen?
Practically everything at once. He likes to flip channels a lot.

4. You go out to the bar: what does he order?
Beer and some sort of snack to give him an excuse to order more beer.

Hogwarts; before that, he was at a Muggle public school in Brooklyn.

6. What size shoe does he wear?
10 1/2

Honey Nut Cheerios.

A business suit.

Barack Obama

14. Who is his best friend?

15. What is something you do that he wishes you wouldn’t do?
Be so perfect! :D

17. What is his heritage?
We're not quite sure, although he definitely has Scandinavian ancestors.

18. You bake him a cake for his birthday: what kind?
Me, bake a cake? ...Well, if I could bake, I would probably try for a traditional American Muggle birthday cake - yellow with chocolate icing (almost Hufflepuff colors).

Yes, baseball and Quidditch.

20. What could he spend hours doing?
Watching a baseball game or fiddling with his electronics.

Before the End

Here is the last bit of story about us before the last Harry Potter book comes out.

I'm glad that's out of the way before the end comes!


My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Her Eminence the Very Viscountess Maevemoon the Dissolute of Leighton Buzzard
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

I like the idea of being dissolute.

A ficlet

No, we have not fallen off the face of the earth (or been buried in h311ybean's subconscious) following the end of dogstar_academy. I am happy to inform you that h311ybean is still writing.

Anyway, she has recently begun using her new USB drive...? ("Is that the correct term for it, Hex? That's what I remember you saying...") Well, whatever it's called, it sounds like a very handy thing and she is glad that she can now share with you the following little excerpt from our sixth year that does not really need to be included in SLAFD. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Remembering that the Headmaster had informed her that they had things to discuss, Maeve had proposed a meeting for Saturday afternoon to give him some time to rest.

On the day of the meeting, she neatened whatever needed neatening in her flat, prepared some light snacks and put the kettle on some time before the Headmaster was due to arrive so that the tea would be ready when he was already there.

Merryn's portrait eyed the preparations with interest. "Who is all of this for?" she asked. "Is it for that blond fellow who always comes to visit you? I don't think you need to go through all these preparations for him. You could feed him sawdust and he'd gladly eat it out of your hand."

Maeve blushed, but couldn't hold back a smile. "No, Hex is not coming today, it is Headmaster Black who is coming to visit." And she did want to have something nice ready for their meeting.



Finally, we have one of those "shippy" icons people keep talking about. I think the ship name is quite clever, too.

What do you think?

My name is...

According to minoukatze, the name "Maeve" means "intoxicating." I never knew that; h311ybean just gave me this name because she thought it sounded right for me. Now I'm certain that it is! ^_^

In other news, I believe the time has come to prune my Friends list. Please be informed that hex316, bear_brand and I will be de-friending the dogstar_academy players who have left the game and will probably not be returning anymore. We can always add you back when you do return :)

dogstar_academy: Visitors for Tea

Maeve hummed a little ditty as she put together a platter of sandwiches for Anna and Neville's visit. The botanical expert had been such a gracious hostess when Maeve had visited her, and she wanted to return the favor.
