The Party Has Just Begun (And it's Rec Time, Already!)

It's here, it's here!!    The hoggywartyxmas bash is well and truly launched this morning and got off with a genuine bang!  I've hauled out my vintage Versace gown
to join the glittering assemblage in the Great Hall - everyone who is anyone will be there, don't you know - so I expect that every one of you will be joining the party.  To judge by the first offering, this will be one that you won't want to miss!

A Change of Plans is just dazzling.  The narrative voice is acerbic, salty and sly, drawing one in right from the start.  The characterizations of both Severus and Minerva are insightful and sharp-edged and the story of their coming together is by turns sexy, droll and painful.  It's beautifully written, full of delightfully turned literary allusions, and has an ending that just feels so right.  Go read it now!!

P.S.  I know that I am very, VERY behind in both answering comments on my page and commenting on yours.  My only excuse is that the last near month has been hell on wheels, and now that I've got a 4 day weekend coming up, I'll do my utmost to catch up.  I had promised myself that I wouldn't post again until I had, at least, answered the comments on my own pages, but I just couldn't help myself (but then, I've always been bad at resisting temptation).  :-D  So go put on your best bib and tucker and head on over to hoggywartyxmas for the next 2+ weeks - you'll be so glad you did!
