Today I want to celebrate with you. Last year on the 13th of October I finished the wonderful Turn
for the first time. It wasn’t the first fanfiction I’ve ever read, but it was the first in years, and the first H/D, and the one that let me fall for the boys- hard and irrevocably.
Since then I’ve read Turn fourth times and am currently listening to chapter 12 of the podfic
During the last twelve months I’ve read more than 400 H/D fics, a lot of other HP fics (slash and het and everything in between :D) and also some fics from other fandoms. If someone feast on statistics, I counted only the ones with 50 pages or more downloaded on my e-reader, but no re-reads, ficlets or things I read online. Well, if you call me obsessed, you might be right. ;p
So, this is basically an anniversary for me, and as everybody here on LJ was warm and welcoming, and I totally LOVE YOU GUYS, I want to give something back and pay it forward (like digthewriter
are currently doing based on mab
's idea):I am participating in the Pay it Forward initiative: people who comment on this post with "I'm in" will receive a surprise from me at some point
in this calendar year in the next 12 months. Anything from a book, a ticket, something home grown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise. There will be no warning; when the mood takes me, and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy it will be sent. Copy and paste this to your own journal only if you wish to do so.
I'll screen comments, so if you want to leave your address you may. You might get a postcard or something else in the mail! You can also specify that you'd only like to receive digital gifts by either email or lj post.
As I’m sure, you all read Turn
already, I’m reccing Nat’s new story today:( Read more... )
