Paging Dr. Freud...  
You know, I realized that I have had a number of dreams about Rupert Grint lately...as in, dreams about me...and him...me and him....meandhim...Nothing crazy or anything--just holding hands, snuggling, dating, etc. And it just struck me that this is really weird. I mean, it's not weird that I'm dreaming about things related to Harry Potter; that's been going on quite regularly for some time now. But he's not the one I have the mad crush on; that's Dan Radcliffe. (And I must clarify that my Dan crush is based mainly on personality, which allows me to feel quite snobby about it! I mean, I think he's incredibly cute, but what attracts me way more than that is his completely charming, intelligent, witty, gush gush gush, etc., personality.) And yet these dreams are oddly satisfying. Why?! I mean, Rupert's cool. He's filling out nicely. I'm sure he's a great guy. But I'm definitely not smitten in the least. Could it be because I'm currently immersed in After the End, and I'm just placing myself in the Hermione role? I don't think so; these dreams started before I started reading AtE. Hmm, I really don't know what it is. But apparently some part of my subconscious is really taken with Rupert Grint. And yes, it's Rupert, not Ron, because he's always an actor in the dreams. I really don't know, man....

Thanks for the tip on that story. So far, I've read the Prologue, and it's fascinating. I suppose it was written before Book V came out since Sirius is still alive.

Your icon is very cute.

After the End is a Sugar Quill classic, written by SQ's creators, Arabella and Zsenya. I had heard all the buzz about it, but was a little hesitant, because I'm more of a backstory girl, but I'm now through Chapter 12, and I can say unwaveringly that it is an incredible story, very well written, great plot, totally in character, etc. Yes, it was written before OotP, which renders it AU, but it's a very delicious AU. It's good to curl up with when you're missing Sirius. ;)

Please forgive my ignorance, but what's AU?

(I knew you'd like the icon. That's why I posted it.)

I need to start using cool icons.

AU = Alternate Universe, as in blatantly deviates from canon. It was written before OotP came out and was canon compliant at that time, but when OotP was released, it became AU. That is, events in OotP rendered stuff that happens in After the End impossible to reconcile with canon (e.g., Sirius being alive after Voldemort is defeated).

Another example of AU would be a fic where Sirius remains James and Lily's Secret Keeper, and thus Peter never has a chance to betray them to Voldemort. Actually, I think that my beta, birgit is writing one of those right now.

Does this story have bedroom scenes? As a Hasidic Jew, I avoid reading such scenes.

Well, I'm only on Chapter 17, but so far, no. I don't think it's NC-17 at any point, from what I understand. So far, all there's been is some kissing, I think. But you may want to ask someone who's read it all the way through to make sure it doesn't have any content that you want to avoid.

Thanks for telling me!
