nerakrose: drawing of balfour from havemercy (Default)
I've had a quiet weekend - bingewatched Yuri on ice (so pure, so good) and finished my festivebastion/volstovic cycle holiday exchange fic and posted it to my ao3 drafts; the fest is self posting between Christmas and NYE, and ao3 doesn't have queueing (yet?). I won't be taking my laptop with me over the holidays so ao3 draft seemed the most convenient option for easy posting via tablet later...

Speaking of which, I have packed for the holidays already. I'm only bringing hand luggage and I want to take some things home (primarily books) to leave at my sister's, to minimise the load come April 1st, and I managed to fit almost everything. There'll even be a lot of space freed up by the time I go to Manchester for NYE so I can even do a spot of shopping there. Very little space left to do shopping in Helsinki, but I'll manage. If all else fails I can probably grab chocolates in the airport past security.

(I also packed my passport already - kept having to remind myself, as I'll need it to get in and out of the U.K. won't need it to show it even once to get on my flight to Copenhagen, which is why I keep forgetting that I need it...)

I've also been catching up on [ profile] hd_erised this week. So far I've especially enjoyed these:

Summary: The story of how Harry Potter single-handedly lost Gryffindor the House Cup while attempting to have a “normal” year at Hogwarts. Featuring Harry's suspicious nature turned up to eleven again, a new DADA teacher who is so not here for Harry’s fame, multiple detentions, Slytherins being sneaky, Hufflepuffs being sneakier, and the mystery of Draco Malfoy's hoodie because seriously Hermione who gave that to him and is he wearing it just to torment me? This is ridiculous!
Why you should read this: This is possibly the cutest most adorable fluffy and funny fic I've read in a while. I couldn't stop smiling while reading it. Everything is wonderful, from Draco's hoodie to the banter to the way Harry falls for him and just rolls with it. Honourable mention to the new defense professor, who was hilarious. Love it.
