Thank you so much to everyone for making my birthday full of amazing surprises! You are all quite incredibly kind and thoughtful. I was at work during the day but when I got home there were so many wondrous things and messages waiting for me. !!!! I had the best time. You certainly know how to spoil a bird.

[ profile] shiftylinguini wrote Brat, another installment in her Princess Albus verse. Oh. gosh, I am just trash for this series. I woke up and saw this and it was physically painful to have to go to work instead of reading it, hahah. If you haven't discovered the joys of this AU where Albus lives in a tower with an emotionally distant Master who buys him pretty frocks and ponies, I can only say, what are you waiting for? It is EVERYTHING, and the latest story, where Albus finds out what happens when he disobeys the Master, is more asdfghjkhjksdfghjklll than ever. ♥

[ profile] dicta_contrion wrote Suit and Tied, and she just about killed me in the process. A sequel to Moneymaker - NNNNNGHHHH - and Harry and Draco are up to their deliriously hot and maddeningly stubborn ways again when Harry goes back to see Draco in his office. I pretty much read this with my jaw hanging open in disbelief at how good it was. I've decided that dicta's fics need a health warning, so DO NOT READ THIS in company where it would be embarrassing to whimper. ♥

[ profile] _melodic_ wrote The Shadow of a Malfoy, and oh, the delicious angsty feels! Albus and Draco are both longing for other people, and it's hot and painful and sooooo doomed, LOL. The 1st person POV is spot on for this intimate, confessional fic, and it's haunted me ever since I read it, in the best way. ♥

[ profile] capitu made an insane post with quotes from all my fic! She is so sweet, it made me blush and smile like mad. I'm still recovering from it and the realisation that I really DO write a lot of ridiculous smut, plus, most of my fics read like love letters to Draco Malfoy, LOL. ♥

[ profile] anemonen drew the most amazing Harry to go with the Draco she drew for I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor: So let's start right now. It shows Harry's reaction to his first gay club and his face is so perfect and awestruck and AAAAAAAHHHHH, and the colours, and I can't stop staring at it. ♥

[ profile] gracerene wrote First Time for Everything, which is a stunningly hot description of what happens when Harry realises that Draco and he should maybe try switching some time. And it's so nerve-racking and overwhelming for Harry, and also SO FUCKING GOOD, Merlin. I love explorations of power dynamics, and this one is just YESSSS. ♥

[ profile] lq_traintracks, [ profile] lijahlover and [ profile] candamira made beautiful very picture posts for me. Such riches! Heavenly flowers, cake, pretty boys, TRUDY, and Holtzmann and seagulls. ♥

[ profile] maccadole and [ profile] oceaxe both posted gorgeous stories about coming back to fandom after a break and how the community here has helped them, and, my god, these posts made my little feathery heart SING. ♥

I had a great time in RL, too - on Thursday Mr Birds and the boys spoiled me, so I got to sit in a bird hide and watch curlews, and eat a LOT of cake. And I got some presents which might interest my flist: a Holtzmann poster, citrus perfume (because, OBVIOUSLY, Draco smells of citrus ;)), a book by my other favourite gay wizard, a Ministry of Magic toilet sticker, a Deathly Hallows decal for my chromebook, and probably my favourite, a Cursed Child necklace:

And so many lovely people sent emails, PMs, virtual gifts, and LJ tokens. I hope you don't mind if I don't try to list them all, but I'm quite worried I'll miss someone out! I'm so grateful for each one and I hope I have replied to each of them now. They made me beam all through the day; it's just a delight to know such thoughtful people. Thank you all. Fandom is a magical place and some days I can't believe I was lucky enough to find my way here ♥

You are a quoting magician, and now I have to reread all of those fics. And because her writing is awesome, I do blame Birds for this. But also you. A little bit. ;D

I do blame Birds for this.

Ahhh, I've been "blaming" birds for stuff that aren't her blame at all for a while now. Lol But that's because I love her so. <3

If you don't mind a bit of ~self promotion, I also blamed her for this letter I wrote her for her birthday a couple of years ago that include all her fics' titles (up to then). I'm particularly proud how that came. :D

I'm so glad you enjoyed your birthday (at first I accidentally typed birdday, which I probably should've kept, now that I think about it!). ;D

That is hilarious! And I saw a tumblr post about Green Herons that was so cool that I really wanted to show you, but I don't know how to embed stuff on LJ and I don't know if you're on tumblr. So on the off chance that you don't know about Green Herons (and I'm not sure that's even possible, but okay), you should look them up because they basically have slinkys for necks. :D
