A letter to mah Birds. <3  
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BIRDS!!!!!!

This, this is the little thing I "wrote" that a friend *coughs lq_traintracks coughs* corrected and now is much better (it is). I hope you don't mind that I borrowed some of your own words.

Here we go. Oh, I'm kind of nervous now. :D

Okay!

*clears throat*

Dear birdsofshore,

Be Prepared, because I'm feeling This Monstrous Need to tell you a few things.

You see, when I read that first story by you, I discovered Unknown Pleasures. I couldn't stop there; I felt This Unstoppable Thirst for more, and the more I read it was as if Riches Ready to Drop Upon Me were already falling.

Loving Harry Potter and discovering What Potter Wants through your eyes was like someone Turning the Tables on me. Nothing was ever the same.

From then on I was like a hound on a fox, following A Princely Scent, even ignoring The Joys of Nature (and on more than one occasion telling the bf "I Shall Not Speak" until I finish this story), for one more taste of your Honey.

I've been Living Deep in these stories you create, sometimes Checking Out the Opposition, granted, but always coming back for more.

You take me to new heights, as if in a Hairway to Heaven, waiting for A Divine Intemperance that I know is coming. You make me forget the world around me. I could be In the Company of a Rubber Duck, or in the middle of Eight Birthdays. I could even think There are Death Eaters Under the Bed! But I'd simply Surrender, in its Place and happily die Hungry as long as I'd never have to leave your writing.

Sometimes At Dawn when it's all silence around me, just like After Hours at the Ministry of Magic, I close my eyes and Remember, Remember that first story that brought you to my life, and I am happy as a child that belongs in Luna Lovegood's Noisy Nifflers Nursery School. But reading again The Twelve Days of Draco – more than a ritual, a Capriccio – is once again falling in love with your words.

Your stories are Rarely Pure and Never Simple, and I hope you never change, because if there is a Recipe for a Contented Reader, you my friend, are cooking with it.

You'll have to forgive me, dearest, because even The Best Laid Plans of Hufflepuffs, when left Unguarded, are just too silly. But know this came from my heart, with the sweetest inspiration a person can have.

All my love,

capitu

OMG, what did you do? LOLOLOL this is incredible! LJ finally decided to start doing pingbacks, so my phone just went fucking berserk pinging me 15 times or something, LOL. You're insane and wonderful and, really, such a darling, and so clever and funny. I don't know how you even thought of it, let alone DID it and made it actually make sense and be so sweet.

And part of me is going, OMG, some of those stories are terrible, I have to get them off my masterlist right now so no-one sees hahahahahhahahahaha :D

I have to go out. But I'll be back to glomp you fully later, you crazy, perfect fool ♥ ♥

Oh Birds. :D *hugs you forever* You have no idea how much fun I had with this. I got this crazy idea and I wanted it to work. I thought it was going to be hard, but it wasn't. :D I thought it wouldn't make sense, but it does. :D I hoped it was sweet and funny, I still hope it is. <3

And yesterday when I told lq_traintracks that I was linking to the fics, and I quote "Aw, man, she's going to get a shitload of pingbacks if lj decides start working those." And of course lj decides to work. Of course. LOL

Well, I'm not ashamed! ;)

*hugs*

WOW that was seriously amazing! Such a clever idea, and so well executed, goddamn it was like poetry. Whoever would have thought that all of those titles could come together to create something so beautiful (especially when some of them are awesomely funny and weird - I can't believe you managed to fit in In The Company of a Rubber Duck LOL!) <3

What a fantastic b-day present for Birds!
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 28th, 2014 01:25 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I made a list of her master list and I knew what I wanted to say, and sat there for a moment thinking, and then I just started writing and wow, it worked! :D She has some pretty awesome titles. So much fun to borrow them for a bit.

Haha, OMG! It's like all this time they had been titling their stories for this precise reason. I mean:

Your stories are RARELY PURE AND NEVER SIMPLE, and I hope you never change, because if there is a RECIPE FOR A CONTENTED READER, you my friend, are cooking with it.

HOW PERFECT IS THAT?!?!

You are the sweetest friend in the world. We're all so lucky to have you in our lives. ♥♥♥

RIGHT??? :D:D

I'm sure she put those titles thinking someone one day was going to do it. ;) That's my favourite bit, too!

*HUGS YOU*
