LJ sucks and recs.  
I've been forced to disable the costume comment pages because LJ is being a huge pain in the bum and I can't see my comments. *sobs* So yeah, old, regular comments' page for me. And it feels so weird. It's like my comments page is in its underwear or something. :/

But in better news, recs!

hp_goldenage finished posting last week and it's been such an awesome fest. If you missed it the wrap ups are here: week 1 and week 2.

Here are some of my favourites. Only some, but do check all the entries because it's been wonderful.

Life Transfigured by abigail89 | Gen: Minerva, Poppy, Irma, Horrace, etc. | G | 5,3K
Prompt: How does the magical world care for its elderly, especially when the elderly decide they can no longer effectively live on their own.
My notes: This was such a lovely read. It's Minerva retiring from Hogwarts and moving to an elderly home where many of her fellow co workers already live. This is her starting over there, seeing life in a new, different way. And it's truly lovely.

Growing Old Disgracefully by writcraft | Minerva/Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank | R | 2,8
Summary: Minerva is entertained by the conversations she overhears when her students think she’s too far away to hear them chatting.
My notes: This was so, so awesome. It's timed in the trio era 8th year and this is Minerva listening to them talking about her and how they see her. But it's far more than that, too. This is a different side of her, a sweet, gentle and even romantic and playful side of her with Will beside her. Wonderful.

Loving You Could Be So Easy by shocolate | Harry/Ron | PG-13 | 5,2K
Summary: Harry has travelled the world for 30 years, and finally comes home. Someone unexpected is waiting for him.
My notes: OH my god! You have to read this. You have to! It's so absolutely wonderful. This is Harry coming back home after living away 30 years, learning what's been of Ron after a kiss all that time ago, and it's so achingly beautiful and familiar because even after 30 years it's them and they are older and perfect. And yes, please do read it. Fantastic stuff.

Dinner With Friends by sdkshelly | Pansy/Ginny, Harry/Draco | NC-17 | 1,1K
Summary: When dinner is delayed, no one ends up minding too much.
My notes: This is such a steamy little story, in which, well, Harry and Draco are supposed to meet for dinner with Pansy and Ginny only the Floo is locked and they get distracted and by the time Pansy and Ginny are ~free, well! Fun and hot and awesome.


By the Sea, You and Me by shadowycat | Minerva/Poppy | PG
My notes: LOVE! It's Professor McGonagall and Madam Pomfrey at the beach!!!!!!!! And they look so, so dashing and wonderful. Perfect.

Don't forget to leave a comment! Comments are ♥.

And a question: are you planning to go to leviosa2016? There's a poll going on at sassy_cissa's journal gathering interest. I'm going to try my hardest to make it happen. I had the best time when I went to Terminus back in, oh god, 2008 *gasp* But this being in 2016 I have time to plan. And so have you! :D SO, are you? XD

Happy Monday, people. <33

And it was all working until today? D: Did they change anything?

Oh my god. This is terrible! My comments' page is NAKED! :O

It's a problem some styles are having, not all of them, so only a portion of the users are having this problem. :(

I know anemonen was saying she couldn't read her comments either. :( I've had no problems... Do we have the same layout? *doesn't know >.<

I would *LOVE* to go to Leviosa, but I know I'm not going to be able to. Maybe if there's another a few years later, but 2016 I don't think is doable. :(
welcome to villa cariño!: sultrycapitu on March 16th, 2015 01:20 pm (UTC)
We use the same base (Flexible Squares) but different code. I checked your journal, it's OK. Same with many others including erised, mpreg, and most comms I've made. But my code is one of the ones affected, and I asked and they said they are working to fix whatever affected these codes but yeah, in the meantime either change styles (which I'm considering because I feel naked like this lol) or disable the costume pages until they fix it. :(((

*nods* Yeah. 2016 feels doable to me, but there are things I need to work out before saying yes for sure. I'd love to though, and will try to make it happen.

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your comments. Not being able to see them is a pretty big issue. :(

But thanks so much for reccing from the fest!! <3 I'm glad you enjoyed it. We're really happy with it. :D
welcome to villa cariño!: sultrycapitu on March 16th, 2015 01:25 pm (UTC)
It was wonderful! Is it going to be an annual fest? *so hopeful*

But yeah, comments thing sucks. :(

This feels like old-school Lj!! *iz nostaligic* I remember when almost all comment pages looked like this. Mine are working but I've noticed a lot of people complaining about this same problem. :/

I've had the Leviosa IndieGoGo page open since yesterday 'cause that Slash Bundle is awesome!!

welcome to villa cariño!: sultrycapitu on March 16th, 2015 01:44 pm (UTC)
You're so right! I remember when all comments pages looked like this. And you know what? I also remember not being all that crazy about costume pages back then. :D Changing to S2 was a big step for me. lol Now I'm used and this feels ~naked. ^^

Those Slash Packs are going to be the death of me. So, so pretty. ^^

Hm. Now LJ won't let me post. The POST buttons are all greyed out. Does anyone else have this problem?
welcome to villa cariño!: sultrycapitu on March 16th, 2015 06:25 pm (UTC)
A few days ago the preview option was greyed out for me. It got fixed over night though. But I've read people having all sorts of issues with the new design at news. I contacted LJ Support and they said they are working on it, but at the same time told me I could switch my layout style for the time being so I'm not sure how fast a solution is coming. No official word from all the problems users have been having.

I hope you enjoy them. :) So many awesome stuff over there. :) And today at remix, too! ;)

Sucky LJ is sucky. Hope they'll fix this soon! Lol at the comments page in underwear, though XD
Happy Monday, love <3
welcome to villa cariño!: sultrycapitu on March 16th, 2015 06:27 pm (UTC)
It's kind of nude, I swear I feel that way. :D I might change my layout for a bit. But I'm the worst at making layout for myself. That can take months. lol

Darling, hope your page gets pants again soon. :D
I had problems with a firefox update and lj last week. It suddenly looked like a page from the early 90ies and was as slow. But it sucks even more when one can't fix it on their own.
welcome to villa cariño!: sultrycapitu on March 16th, 2015 06:29 pm (UTC)
LOL I hope so, too! I'm not happy about the pantless lj comments. XD

Yeah, I've been having issues here and there, but nothing as big as this, and they usually got fixed overnight -- these might take a while. Been checking regularly but nothing. *sighs*

Yeah, people have been having all sorts of problems, also with updates. It's been a big pain. :////

Ah, Leviosa. ^^ Normally it wouldn't be possible for me either. I live in South America, but with over a year or planning it might be possible. Otherwise, we're in the same boat. Living it through people's posts. ^^
Avid Supporter of the Booty Floo: lq by capitulq_traintracks on March 16th, 2015 09:44 pm (UTC)
Awesome recs as usual, dear! :-D

God, I want to go to Leviosa! You know where my life is at, so it's sort of impossible to predict where it will be in over a year, but I'm going to try my best, too. Omg, if you were there... Okay, I'll try MORE than my best! LOL! And there shall be much hugging and jumping and screaming and crying and flailing and smiling! :-D <3
welcome to villa cariño!: sultrycapitu on March 16th, 2015 10:53 pm (UTC)
LOL Yeah. It would be so, so awesome if we both can make it. Man. I have ~dreams. There would be much glee and fun would be had by all. :D

*sighs* I'm hopeful though! <333
Jaeenchanted_jae on March 17th, 2015 01:11 am (UTC)
Gosh, I'd really like to, and it's feasible. I hate to travel, but my local airport (currently) has direct flights to Vegas. I'd just need to sort myself out once there.

welcome to villa cariño!: sultrycapitu on March 17th, 2015 11:45 am (UTC)
You can do it, Jae! Don't miss it! When I went to Teminus I didn't know anyone and it was brilliant. :D

I hope you read this--I've been having a terrible time with comments....

Thank you for the rec and for your very kind comment on my fic. I love writing Minerva and want only the best for her, always.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on March 19th, 2015 02:20 pm (UTC)
LJ's been mad lately. *nods* But I did!

And you're most welcome, I love the story, and I love how you wrote her and all the people surrounding her. :)
