New stories

Some of you probably have noticed that there are two new stories on mamadebfic.

One reason is that I had nothing else to do today, so I figured I'd be creative. Another is that I owed those two stories (one was very, very owed) and I knew I'd feel better once they were written.

But a third was that I'd worked myself into a fit of depression because, of all silliness, the Secret Santa stuff. I mean, it was my choice to not go to the party, so it's really dumb for me to feel left out, right? Well, no one said I was rational or adult. (And, yeah, my birthday was just last week, and two people offered to write me stories, so yay! Who needs Santa, anyway?)

Writing the stories got me out of that bit. Yay for fic therapy.

An open letter to all writers of Remus Lupin:

ENOUGH with the chocolate already.

He is NOT obsessed with chocolate. He doesn't eat a single piece, for example in Order of the Phoenix.

Chocolate is the Wizarding remedy for an encounter with a Dementor. Remember how pleased Madam (note, please, *Madam*, not *Madame*. Poppy is not French) Pomfrey was when she learned that Lupin gave the students chocolate? "Thank goodness someone knows his remedies."

The other times he gave Harry chocolate was after Patronus training, which meant he had to encounter a Dementor!Boggart, and apparently that has much the same effect as a real Dementor, which doesn't make any sense, but whatever.. Not only that, but he never eats it himself after those lessons (does he even eat any on the train?)

I know it's cute; I know it's become a fanon character trait and I know it seems to make sense, but it's NOT canon.
