50,000!!!!

I've DONE IT! Tonight, I hit 50,000 words, during a "virtual" write-in with the wonderful folks in Tucson. (They were having a write-in; I was chatting with syrinxkat so I could experience it vicariously). Thanks for all the sprints! :)

The 50,000th word was the wholly unexciting "I," in the following context:

Of course this was a silly line of thought for me to take, because there WASN'T any sort of monster or vampire or anything in the back room. And I was going to march back there right now and prove it. To myself, and the monsters. Edgar, of course, was going to come with me. He'd defend me if it came to that, wouldn't he? His beak really did look pretty deadly. Even if he wouldn't attack, he could do a good job of looking dangerous and threatening. I'd feel safer, anyway. I mean, who wants to go all alone into a dark, deserted store room in the middle of the night, after hearing a scary noise?

(And of course, there really IS a vampire back in the store room. Of course there is. :D).

I'm not finished with the story yet - there are at least two major scenes I need to write, plus some transitional stuff. But I've passed the big hurdle. I might even be ready to upload on the day they open the site (the 25th, I think)? For now, though, I'm just enjoying the sight of my project goal bar filled all the way to the edge. :)

Ha ha! Your icon makes me laugh.

And he's a vampire! So appropriate! :D

I don't think I have a vampire icon. Oh WAIT a minute, yes I do!

*points up*

(Ignore the WTF, unless, of course, you still don't believe in Vampire!Snape). ;)

Hee - tis a very appropriate icon. :D

I believe Snape is a vampire in fic. XD

Fic? FIC?

I don' need no stinkin' fic! She never said he ISN'T, in the books, anyway, so as far as I'm concerned, it's canon. He moved like a bat! What more proof do you want?

LOL

Well there you have it, I guess. PROOF!

;D

LOL! Now THAT'S the best Snape icon ever. Happy!Snape . . . which is absolutely, definitely and most assuredly NOT canon. ;)

LOL! This was one of my pet theories for years and years. Partly because I like vampires. (In literature, I mean; I don't know any in real life, mostly because Connor carries a stake with him to keep us safe). :D

There were some things in the first couple of books that sort of screamed "VAMPIRE" to some of us - like him being described as a big bat. I don't remember all of it anymore, but there were a few of us who decided that he was a vampire! She never came out and said he wasn't, in canon (I think she might have said something in an interview, but whatever. :D). So, I'm deciding that he is. :)

OMG NO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never once did that occur to me as a problem with the theory! HOLY MOLY!

*sobs*

Although - do we know he's REALLY dead? Maybe he's just . . . um . . . sleeping?

*hangs head*

You are the first one to disprove Vampire!Snape for real! Which is heartbreaking. ;) And also very, very funny! :D

Oh, LOL! That's perfect! Vampire Heart? And Snarry? (Although I'm not a huge fan of Snarry, but maybe . . . Ginny was really just a front all along, so that no one would notice that Harry was REALLY having a relationship with Undead!Snape!

Thanks for that! :D

LOL! Oh, you crack me up! NOOOO! Sirius/Remus! (Actually, they are my only ship I really care about in the whole series, and I consider it canon. :D). I still haven't seen Order of the Phoenix yet - nice tattoos on Sirius, though. Gary Oldman wouldn't have been my first choice, but he looks all right. :D

(I can't think of who I'd ideally ship Harry with. I guess Ginny is as good as anyone). :D

Hee! That's right. I always think of Oldman as the "Butthair" Dracula, due to the horrendous hairstyle. And that was the movie where Keanu Reeves was SOULSUCKINGLY awful. But otherwise, it's okay. :D

Harry/Hermione would be okay. I don't like Ron/Hermione, even if it was obvious that's where Rowling was going. Mostly, though, I don't care who the kids ended up with. Just the hot men. Sirius, Severus and Remus. I have my priorities. ;)

Congratulations!

What I need is a "National NONfiction Writing Month." Although actually, considering how slowly I write, I'd do better with a "National Nonfiction Writing YEAR."
