It's about fucking time  
So "Yellow" has been sitting on the back burner for a while now, and that really sucks. The problem was a combination of an abundance of crack!fic plot bunnies; a touch of writer's block; and a huge dollop of Black Family Tree fucking up a scene I had written.

Well, huz-freakin'-zah, I think I've made a breakthrough. The situation with the Black Family Tree has been rectified, the crack!fic plot bunnies have been (temporarily) laid to rest, and the writer's block has been conquered. Sometimes you just need to take a break, you know?

The odd thing, however, is that my characters are starting to get a bit out of hand. I mean, there's a good possibility that a ~15-year-old Sirius and Bellatrix are about to get in a fistfight. The hell? I think I sort of want it to happen, but I certainly don't need to contribute to the Sirius hatred out there.

Well, we'll see where this one goes.

In other news, I "created" my very first icon (*points to icon*), based on a comment in gunderpants's LJ on all of this fat!wank splattering around in the aftermath of JKR's latest diary update.

All hail the power of Photoshop! Yet another technology that I shall use for procrastinatory purposes. Teh yays.

I am digging the icon.

Yay for progress on "Yellow"! I think a Sirius-Bellatrix fistfight would be cool. (And wouldn't make me hate Sirius at all- why would it?) But why a fistfight, and not trading hexes?

Hee, thanks about the icon. I'm scratching the surface of Photoshop (which I didn't even realize I own...well, "own"), but it's pretty nifty all the same.

About the fistfight: I guess I've just been thinking a lot about the all the character hatred wank going around these days. Then again, a Sirius-hating Snape apologist is highly unlikely to be reading my story in the first place, which is the main type of person I was thinking of when I wrote that. Also, there's the "male engaging in a physical fight with a woman" aspect...but since they're family, I could possibly see it happening.

Oh, and it'd have to be a fistfight because it's during the summer holidays while Sirius is still in school = not allowed to do magic. I suppose I could change that detail, but for some reason I really like the idea of a raw, emotional fistfight. Also, it's prompted by a physical reaction in which Sirius yanks his arm away from Bellatrix, who's been grabbing onto it, and she stumbles into him...it just seemed to flow.
