Roy Dotrice has passed away at the age of 94. May he rest in peace.

I wasn’t sure who he was at first, since I’m not interested in Game of Thrones. That is, I didn’t realize who he was until I checked IMDB and saw that he had played Roger Wyndam-Pryce in one episode (Lineage) of Angel. Now I remember him. Looking through the rest of his filmography, I have also seen him in Nightmare Classics: Carmilla (1989), Tales From The Crypt (1972), and two episodes of Faerie Tale Theatre. He was also Zeus in three episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

I might need to track down his episode of Tales From The Darkside, wherein he plays "Vampire Count Jeffrey Draco."

Notes: First off, let me grovel at the feet of the mods for putting up with my last minute shenanigans (I promise one day I'll complete something by the actual due date… LOL). Second, many thanks to my wonderful two betas for helping me with this fic. Third, I wanted to write a HUGE epic novel with this prompt because it's amazing (honestly, who doesn't love Beauty and the Beast?). So while this isn't what people were likely expecting, I hope some of you enjoy it.

Summary: A chaotic turn of events brings them together… Hermione can't help but wonder if there was a reason why.

Title: A Day Like Any Other
Rating: R

Genres: humour, fluff, hurt/comfort
Image Count: 34
Summary: The one where Sirius keeps receiving unwanted mail, Remus drinks a lot of tea, Peter's out on a hot date, and James is offering unwanted make overs.
(Or the answer to the question of exactly how many cursed letters can you flush down the loo).
Notes: Huge thanks and enthusiastic hand waving to my team who all went above and beyond to make Team Sirius a super wonderful place to be. Thank you to all the usual people who prodded me along and made encouraging remarks, I couldn't do it without you, as usual!
And the biggest thanks of all to the mods for hosting this fest for so many years. It's been the highlight of my year for quite a while now, and I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to take part in such a gigantic labour of love. Thank you so very, very much!!
Prompt: #39 - "We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.” - from the play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard

Prompt: E - "We are not the same persons this year as last; not as those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person." - W. Somerset Maugham
kindness_says: (yuletide - gotta swap em all)
Hello, beloved swappers! Don’t worry, swaps IS happening, as always! Sign-ups post will go up, ummmm, soon. I meant to kick us off around the beginning of the month, but #life #got overwhelmed by the idea of needing to rewrite this FAQ, tbh. Sorry!

This year! We have moved to Dreamwidth, because Yuletide has moved to Dreamwidth, and because it seems like most of our constituency has done the same. We will probably continue to crosspost to the Yuletide LJ community in some capacity, linking back to DW posts and providing a forum for LJ-only swappers to continue to ask questions and make contact when their yahoo emails inevitably fail. ;)

Tags will remain the same: “omnomnom” for candyswap, “who likes books” for bookswap, and “nice cuppa” for drinkswap (er, just as soon as I'm able to request their creation on DW). As on LJ, we strongly encourage swappers to track tags for the swaps they are interested in.

(Go to your DW Account Settings >> Notifications afterward, to make sure all the tags you wanted definitely took!)

And now…onward!

FAQ! )

But seriously, when are sign-ups going to be open for Yuleswaps 2017?

Soon, I swear. Tonight, I hope, but realistically, might be more like tomorrow or Tuesday. I will get it together. I promise. Swaps will happen.

Happy swapping, swappers!!!!

Kat (and sleeps, in spirit)
