Erm...Could you refresh me on the werewolf testicles one? I should probably be ashamed of myself for not remembering that, but I'm hazy. That's not tied with the Greek Fire, is it? lol

It is the Greek Fire one. The werewolf testicles were one of the ingredients.
What's Taters, Precious?

Oh yeah! LOL Well, I'll see what I can do. LOL

At least I didn't request that anyone write 17th Century Gay Werewolves in Drag.
What's Taters, Precious?
mrstater at 3:22 pm on 31 August 2007 (UTC) (Link)
Yes, there's always that to be grateful for.

Isn't it scary when discussing werewolf testicles can be considered showing restraint?

I might need a new flist. You people are a bad influence.

You've been influenced badly? I'm the one who used to write virgin!Remus and Tonks with a very chaste old-fashioned relationship!

bratty_jedi at 3:38 pm on 31 August 2007 (UTC) (Link)
Oh yeah. Minor technicality.

I totally misread 15's answer as 'fling'... which sound potentially more fun than filing, at least... ;)
Rachael

A fling definitely sounds like more fun than my filing. I'm just not sure why a fling would be classified as something I should do but have been putting off. Now I'm going to have to ponder how that could work out...
