As in, regularly working on a WIP that I fully intend to post and probably even crosspost to a few communities. Which, okay, I haven't regularly worked on a fic in years- what little I write lately is one-shots, or part of RPs with my best friend- so this is... sort of exhilarating and so much fun that it's insane. And the best part is, it's something I can't wait to share but I'm holding back because usually when I share WIPs when I only have a few hundred words written, I end up abandoning them, and I want to finish this. But I am definitely going to share this thing, once I have a proper chapter or two written.

Anyway, 1800-some words and counting, still barely into the first chapter. I keep trying to get to the next scene and instead I write more banter between the two main characters, who were not supposed to become friends for several chapters but apparently one of them is a bit more willing to forgive at this point than he is in canon, which I'm chalking up to him being 11 and wanting to have friends other than his BFF as well as due to the fact that there aren't years of history of horridness between them at this point.

(Yes, this is the Slytherin!James AU I mentioned a few months ago. I'd've finished chapter one by now, I suspect, if December hadn't been batshit insane for me. Still might be a few months before I actually start posting it, at the rate I write at.)

Ever had a brilliant loose concept for a fic, but no real plot and very little inclination to write it? Cause I do- all the time- and it's almost always a fairly basic idea that I would assume someone else has written, somewhere in the vast amount of fic on the internet. And nine times out of ten, I find nothing when I proceed to go look for it.

This time- and by this time, I mean the one on my mind at the moment, though the fic concept's been in my head for a while- it's a James/Lily/Severus OT3 AU longfic. I'd take anything, as long as the characterization's at least fanon-level believable and it's not love triangle fic, which seems to be the default with Lily, James, and Severus. I want to see them raising Harry together, along with Uncle Moony and Uncle Padfoot (and maybe Uncle Regulus, because my personal fanon says that Severus and Regulus were friends, though not really BFFs or anything). Maybe they run off and go deep into hiding together. Maybe Sev never gave Voldemort the prophecy. Maybe Sev was never a Death Eater at all. Maybe Sev and Lily are Ravenclaws, and Sev doesn't get targeted by the Marauders for being a Slytherin- or maybe James is the first Potter in centuries to be sorted into Slytherin, and, horrified though he is, he ends up striking up a friendship with Severus, fighting to keep Sirius from assuming the worst of Slytherin, and builds ties between the two houses at a time when the school desperately needs it.

......Damn. Now I want to write that last one.

Anyway, I think I was going somewhere with this but I have no idea where, other than random complaining, so I'll just... leave it here and go write mildly plausible AU fic.
