OOH! Totally excited to hear about the sirius_black comm and the Day of the Black Dog event, neither of which I knew about – thank you! Just went off and excited sent them a message asking more about it. :-)
You're welcome - so glad to hear it caught your interest :D
I hope I'll get to do something for our lovely Sirius, and hopefully I'll be able to find the time:)

Are you going to join rs_small_gifts?
Ahhh, I waffled back and forth about rs small gifts, but the period of time in which I would need to write for it is going to be so crazy for me (moving, etc.) that I don't feel I can commit to anything at all – no matter how small! Maybe next year...

What I wasn't sure about from reading the info about The Day of the Black Dog – and what I wrote to the mods asking – was whether it's a fest for only new works written specifically for this event, or if it's also a place to share already-posted stories. I certainly have lots of previous Sirius stories to share, but for the same reasons as above, I just probably won't get a chance to write anything new in time for the event. (I should join the group just in general, though, because it looks like sirius_black is also a place to post/share Sirius-centric stories all the time?)
I do think that The Day of the Black Dog is for posting new fics and art, but that you can post your Sirius-centric stories there in general. I'm not 100% certain of this, as I haven't followed sirius_black very long myself, but hopefully the mods get back to you with info :)

I haven't decided on rs_small_gifts, because, like it is for you, it's not the best of timing. I'll probably end up signing up for it :) Hope to see you next year ;)

I'm guessing it's exactly as you say – the day/fest is for new work, but of course existing stuff can be posted there at any time – and I'm excited to have found a comm where I actually have something to offer! (I most definitely have Sirius-centric fics, of various sorts.) I got a very helpful message back from the mod, and I joined already I'll post something there once I've had a chance to think about which story to pick. Yay! Thanks for point it out!
Oops... I just now wrote something for The Day of the Black Dog after all. ;-)

It's very short, though, just a series of drabbles!

Heh. Looks like I should ALWAYS say I'm not going to do something, because apparently that's the one thing guaranteed to make it turn out that I do it after all.
A series of drabbles sounds wonderful, can't wait to read it!

Haha, well in that case I hope you'll decide NOT to participate in a lot of fests and events ;)
