psa: do not be a first year in my stories
#and capers ensue
#etc. etc. (and life goes on)
“…OH DEAR MERLIN, THERE ARE FIRST YEARS IN THIS ROOM, HANNAH!”
Hannah quickly extracted herself from straddling Jeremy’s lap and stopped what seemed to be inhaling his face.
Every first week of school, some first year would go missing for a whole day only to stagger out of the maze in the dead of night, gasping for food and water.
Rose brightened, almost to the point where she wouldn’t scare away first years on sight.
It was almost as if a parade were marching past the room, but Hogwarts hadn’t had one since one of the first years got stuck in their fly-trap tuba.
The no-holds barred rush commenced to the refreshments table; three first years were harmed in the process.
James swung her around (another two first years were harmed)
etc. etc. surprisingly does not have much first year abuse, but they like to appear out of nowhere
We jostle past the feverish first years bounding out of Herbology.
I’m heading back to the dungeons when this first year barrels down the hallway out of nowhere.
A first year leaps into view behind Babbling, followed by three more girls.
i like to imagine there’s a small army of small witches and wizards ready to trip over their feet on cue
Anonymous asked: When are you going to write some more for Play?
I don’t knowwww :c It’s just such a low priority and I always have other things I need to write. I have been trying to get it down to a length that I’ll be able to complete. The rest is probably wrapping up the summer and her mother’s wedding and then timeskipping a year b/c they have wonderful adorb first flat antics with salads and more blenders and Oliver and Jeremy watching sad movies together. And, I don’t know, more stuff???

(one more time with answer functionality how do you tumblr >:C)
MY HEART IS KIND OF SWELLING IN JOY. PAPER ALBUS IS MAKING FRIENDS <3 If you guys ever have any random ideas, I would love to attempt to fulfill them if time allows, because that is what I do with my life.
Now for ZE FIRST RANDOM POLL because I am going to see what happens. The question of the moment: What pairings do you ship in my stories? If you don’t ship anyone, that’s a totally valid answer, too; I think a good lot of people who read Capers don’t ship anyone, actually.
It’s always fun to hear the uncommon ships, which are strangely common for what they are (Anjali/James has been mentioned multiple times, but James shows up for all of 1000 words and they’ve never spoken a word to each other. BUT HEY if you ship them, then you’re not alone!). Also, I famously ship the wrong things in my own stories, so there’s that. For the record, I’m a not-so-secret occasional shipper of Oliver/Penny, Clemence/Pickett, and crackship Potterpuff/Anjali. Not that I don’t like the other pairings, but ah, I have a fondness for probably-never-to-be pairings cough abed/annie zutara independent!korra.
Don’t be ‘fraid - just let your inner shipper flow out and reply to this post or drop a message, etc~
(Bonus question: how many ships would a shipper ship if a shipper could ship ships?)
edit: okay so I don’t know what’s the easiest way to go about this so I am going to reply right here >:C TUMBLR YOU ARE NOT USER FRIENDLY.
se-ra-phine: I thought about it, and the cupcake has been the best wingman in the whole story. Gets the whole cast through apologies, cheering people up, bribing, baking dates, and so self-sacrificial. I support Scorcake.
Infinity sounds about right. maybe a bit more.
weelilz: fellow clicketterrr. idgi, I almost always cheer for the best guy friend in everything, but I never write that kind of ship or I find some way to ruin it terribly .________.
plottyjulz: NO SURPRISE THERE~ I also call potterpuff/anjali the footstool ship. someone is the footstool in this relationship cough.
macaroons: he flew into the noon sun with them~ that is true love indeed, especially because noon sun hurts more than sunsets, and true love’s got to hurt, amirite? AND <3 YOU DREW THE BEST SCORCAKE
misssaintan asked: Hi
I've always loved you. I've been on HPFF on and off for years & your banners are everywhere & are gorgeous but I was/am too shy to review/do more than fangirl but then came Tumblr which is made for fangirling.
You're just brilliant. I'm currently obsessed with et cetera because goodly chaotic Albus is goood.
I've loved you since Game when I was going through an Oliver Wood obsession (still am, actually) & it was just godly.
And now Capers and now Etc. You are perfection, you know that rig
Ahh, thanks so much! :33 Don’t be shy! Sometimes I see people apologize for their incoherent capslock squeeing, but if I’ve learned anything about authors, it’s that manic fangirling warms our hearts like nothing else <33
ChaoticGood!Albus is my guilty pleasure >:D AND OLIVER WOOD IS MY FIRST OBSESSION ~ he’ll always have a special place in my heart. It was the accent. Completely the accent.
Anonymous asked: Albus working with dragons is literally the most perfect thing ever omg. dying. (also him and his talent with Snitches... Potterpuff is seriously my favorite.) and that picture of Bea and Scorpius from the next chapter is to die for ACK WHY ARE YOU SO TALENTED :( jealous.
ISN’T IT JUST? When I thought about it, I was like, Yep. Show’s over. Dragon tamer. All other jobs are now unworthy. Charlie is also my favorite Weasley boy :3 and since I kind of like how he’s married to dragons (though in my headcanon, Charlie has this pseudo-relationship with Penny - same Penny from Game. Game shares the same universe as Capers, if anyone didn’t know that. I haven’t had the chance to mention this, but Verona actually knows Anjali fairly well and they kind of hate each other, not just because they’re rival captains, but because they’ve been forced to hang out every time their parents meet up. Because Roger is Anjali’s dad and Rona is Verona’s mom. That was also a really long tangent unrelated to anything else, heh, I apologize.) - oh god where was this sentence going when I began it? Right um. Since Charlie is sort of married to his dragons, I wanted Albus to be a bit similar, because I can’t imagine him being in a relationship. He’s everyone’s friend! And he’s quite happy being that.
Aw thanks! <3 It’s the first time I’ve ever drawn people in a painting style that actually turned out looking like… people, and I’m super happy it was that scene that I chose to paint :3 I drew it before I wrote it and it was a huge inspiration.

pitchblease asked: i tried emmy the great too and SHE TRULY IS GREAT. and i truly truly hope the next chapter of play is written soon because despite the fact i love bea and clemence, i'll ALWAYS have a soft spot for rona and her friends. but mostly rona. and by the way you're a genious.
^ Rona, woooooo
Yay! I love spreading some indie love <3
I miss silly Rona and Oliver. I can’t say when I’ll write the next chapter, but I’m sure I’ll just end up spitting something out one day, and I do really want to write more of them :3 I got all nostalgic re-reading Game; I’ve got a soft spot for them too.
