Thank you all!

Well, the Challenge is officially closed, and I must say the entries are absolutely stunning! I have now read all of them, and everyone did a fabulous job! We had everything from very short, fluffy humor to long, tortured, extremely sad angst, and everything in between! Marvelous job, everyone, and thank you SO MUCH for all the birthday wishes! This has truly been one of the biggest highlights of my birthday, and I can't express how wonderful all of you have made me feel. :)

Later today, I'll figure out this poll thingie, and set it up for people to be able to vote for their favorite story. I will NOT be voting, unless there is an absolute tie, because everything was so wonderful and I don't want to have to chose. :)

I also need to figure out how to limit who can vote... I may have to set up a friends filter on the comm, or even in my LJ, which includes only the people who contributed stories... I will definitely let you know as soon as I figure it out.

Thank you all again! You've made turning 40 so much easier for me!!! :D

Love to all of you,

08:21 am - Only 15.5 hours left!
Hello, everyone!

I meant to post this last night, but I was tired (and now I'm in at work... I'm so annoyed at having to work not only on my birthday, but on the weekend before it, you would not BELIEVE. :P) So, I see there have been a few fics posted in the last week... I've been saving up reading them as a present to myself for tomorrow, so if you've not gotten a review from me, that's why! I promise to read all of them tomorrow!

There are just about 15.5 hours left to post fics, deadline is 12AM Eastern tonight to be eligible to vote for and possibly even be the person to receive the 6 months paid LJ time. :D

Thanks so much to everyone who has participated. The earlier contributions I read were WONDERFUL, I'm so happy! :D Expect major pimpage from me tomorrow!!! :D

12:55 pm - Domestic Disharmony
TITLE: Domestic Disharmony
AUTHOR: Magnolia Mama (magnolia_mama)
RATING: PG-13 for innuendo, some language
PAIRING: Should be obvious from the summary, but Harry/Ginny with a side order of Ron/Hermione
SUMMARY: Ginny Potter is a wife, a mother, and today she's 40 years old.  What's worse, her husband seems to have forgotten.
NOTES: Special thanks to buckbeaky and thalialunacy for their advice, and to charityj for reading a draft and recommending improvements. Thanks also to thetreacletart for pointing me to this challenge.
This is a bit fluffier than I'd like to admit I'm capable of writing, but there's just something about the H/G pairing that brings out the fluffernutter in me. This fic is set in the same universe as A Life Well Lived, though you do not need to have read that to understand what is happening here.

DISCLAIMER: J.K. Rowling owns the Harry Potter universe and everything it encompasses. This is a work of fan fiction, and thus derives no profit or material benefit therefrom.

Happy Birthday, arionrhod! May the next 40 years be as good (or better) than the first 40!
