Hello (hello, hello...)  
It has been quiet lately. Part of me thought maybe this was one of those self-fulfilling prophecies in which we're all quiet because it's been so quiet lately, or we're all talking about how quiet it's been instead of, you know, just talking. :D

But it has been quiet. *nods*

In my little fannish heart I want to believe everybody is so busy typing their fingers off and drawing their bums off that most aren't here, like I know indeed that's the case for some of you. I want to believe there's going to come a moment in which more or less at the same time everybody going to deliver their work/fic/art come here and talk and talk and fangirl and be all merry where fun will be had by all. :D

I know, I'm a dreamer. But come on, exciting things are happening!

Claiming is open at hp_drizzle
Claiming is open at hd_eighthyear
Reveals are up at hd_hurtfest
'That Picture' Flash fest master list is up at hd_remix
Anon Master List is up at femmefest
Posting is happening at dracotops_harry and at snape_potter Snarry-a-Thon
Posting begins on May 1st for both hds_beltane and hp_mhealthfest
Posting starts at hp_darkarts's Horror fest the 25th
Due dates are approaching for both hd_smoochfest and harrydracompreg
And prompting opens at hp_crossgenfest on Monday

And that's only things I remember at the top of my head. I bet I'm missing more stuff. And yet, we're all, 'It's quiet here.' And it kind of is. ^^

Well! I am the resistance! I refuse to go down quietly and will be loud to the bitter, bitter end. :D Who's with me? Come on!

Anyone? *lol*

With smooch & mpreg deadline close, I'm hoping it's partly that, yeah?

*GLOMPS*

I'm the strong silent type, LOL.

I am with you to the bitter bitter end. I'll try posting some more stuff soon. I am typy-typing away though :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 08:52 pm (UTC)
To the infinity and beyond, yes? :D

I'm so happy to see you around lately. SO HAPPY, OKAY? <3333

And to know you're typing: double happiness.

cant talk much - typing my fingers raw with mpreg and rarefest!
but i couldnt refuse drizzle so signed up for that too xD
but after rare i'm totally up for more talking and pesting and sharing and exchanging
its late here, will head to bed soon too, so i only came by to say:

*bang* --> reference books falling down
*tappetid tappeta tappeti klick klick* --> typing as fast as i can
*evil swear words in the silence* --> some idea refuses to work out

so, you might not be hearing to much noise because it's all over with me
(lame joke alarm, sorry , i will log off now)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 09:01 pm (UTC)
Typing! \o/\o/\o/

Wow! Mpreg, rarefest *and* drizzle! Sweeet! :))

*lol* As long as you're still around, it's all awesome. So glad you've been writing more. <333
besamislabiosbesamislabios on April 23rd, 2015 08:57 pm (UTC)
Sometimes it sure seems like nobody's around. I'm always here, but I don't post often. Like you said, hopefully everyone is writing/drawing new stuff. :)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 09:02 pm (UTC)
Same here. I'm always here, not always posting but always around talking to people who do. :D

I think that's the case for a lot of people. Working on their stories and art. *nods* I've heard things. ^^

There's the H/D 8th Year Fest claiming now! http://hd-eighthyear.livejournal.com/

My inbox has been feeling quite busy, but I think that's just my own perception due to being terribly behind on Draco Tops Harry Fest notifications... :P

On the other hand, I've been seeing more Harry Potter than usual on my Tumblr dash!
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 09:10 pm (UTC)
8th year!!!!! SO RIGHT! :D

XD Draco tops Harry has been keeping me busy as well! *lol* It's been so much fun. I'm still on today's entry. Such a treat!

I need to get a tumblr. I swear to god. I need to get the hang of that thing. ^^

Though cats run away when I start. Honest! The stereo tries to jump off the window, too! *lol* But I'm game.

I'm aaaaaalways here! But I feel like I don't have anything interesting to say. :(

I have been typing away though, as you know. :) I'll be emailing you soon probably. :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 09:24 pm (UTC)
I know! *clings* You're here and I'm here and we're together. ;) *lol*

But I know you have been busy typing away like mad. I'm excited. And cross gen next week! *rubs hands*

For me, it's the nicer weather. We had a lovely March, but the first 2.5 weeks of April were cold. Now it's nice again and I'm out more. When I have time, I'm walking, biking, and just enjoying the warm sunshine.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 09:25 pm (UTC)
That's lovely! The weather had been much nicer lately here. Cooler, which is, um, 25-21C, much better than 35 of late. :)

I thought it went quiet for about a week, but it doesn't seem that quiet to me, now. I've decided to be a noisy, chatty person this month, so in my mind at least, there's a party going on :DD
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 09:26 pm (UTC)
Yep, it's like we all decided enough of quiet stuff and we got all chatty all of the sudden. :D

But when quiet, I even contemplated a comment fest of some sort. ^^ I have ~ideas.
snowgallsnowgall on April 23rd, 2015 09:20 pm (UTC)
Vive la résistance!

It does seem quiet this week, although I felt like the week that both flash fest AND dracotops-harry were posting was super busy. But maybe that was just me?
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 09:28 pm (UTC)
I think it's like a coming down from the high of remix/flash fest/hurtfest and now DTH. When things are overwhelming, people do step back for a bit. It could have been it. Yes.

!!!! Indeed. Here we are. *grins*

Still reading DTH. *lol* I'll message you in a bit. <3

There've always been quiet weeks. And then things rec up again. Maybe we should have some cross-postings from tumblr. :)

See, I am even here on my hiatus day. :)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 09:51 pm (UTC)
Yeah, there are periods when things do get quiet (and we get a bit paranoid about it. ^^). I was just telling snowgall the same.

And I see! I love that about you. :)
vociferandumvociferandum on April 23rd, 2015 10:00 pm (UTC)
I love your tenacity and faith in the fandom! (:
I didn't notice the quiet, because I've actually very few people friended, but as for me, I'm trying to read and comment on everything good that's been popping up in the fests!
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 10:24 pm (UTC)
I'm nothing if not persistent. :)

I've been trying to read and comment, but it feels that sometimes people get a bit quiet. It comes and goes. A couple of months ago, half my flist got sick at the same time, there are moments when everybody is talking at the same time, then everybody is quiet at the same time. It's a circle, but when it's quiet, it feels so sad, you know? But I *have* been seeing you around. :) *hugs*
nia_kantorkania_kantorka on April 23rd, 2015 10:22 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes, quiet and working on stuff. But you know that already. Just posted a thing to be less quite.

And yes, you need a tumblr. I still don't have a real knack of it, but it's fun nonetheless. A lot of shiny Harry/Draco art (just look at this by hibiscus) Or have you seen Alekina's tryptic? I'm sure Raitala posted the first two, but did you see Harry too?
Yes, lots of shiny things on tumblr. And even I (no pro at working her PC) can get rid of the stuff I don't want to see.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 23rd, 2015 10:29 pm (UTC)
\o/ posting makes me happy. But yes, i know you have been busy. :D

I need a tumblr. Look at that gorgeous art! I'm missing stuff. >.

YEEESSS THIS MUST BE IT :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on April 24th, 2015 12:29 pm (UTC)
It must be it! In fact, yep, I've been hearing things. :D People are busy now but it'll translate in a lot of fangirling soon enough. :)
