An annoucement--and the finishathon

I HAS INTERNETS! AT MY HOUSE!

(i'm using the internets at the local coffee shop right now, because they have air conditioning and my house does not. and it is deathly hot right now.)

Voting for the Finish-a-thon has ended for this year. Results can be found here. As I predicted, this is the fic I'll be writing until October 25th (American time):

Fandom: Harry Potter/CSI
Description: The CSI team are witches/wizards, part of a new branch of Magical Law Enforcement who are trained in dealing with magical trace elements, spell identification, etc. Now they've been assigned to investigate the scene of the battle in the department of Mysteries, to determine the exact charges against the captured Death Eaters, the culpability of any of the vigilantes who fought them, and to confirm or deny the presence of Sirius Black during the battle and his role in it. [Unfinished from last year's finish-a-thon; I have most of the backstory worked out, and several hundred words written. I'd like to get to 10,000 words or finish, whichever comes first.]
Type: gen, though I reserve the right to hint at 'ships. Avatar fic, of a sort.
Rating: PG

I failed to finish this last year, partly because I was writing a spec script and working on three other ficathons during that period. I really want to nail it this time, and since my brain is still full of Deathly Hallows, that might not be too hard. :-)

This is an utterly self-indulgent post.

There is something deeply pleasing about receiving an unexpected review on a story one posted so long ago that one tends to forget it's even on one's profile. I never really expected to get any reviews for Let Me Down, which is a piece of deep-pov angst set during a pivotal scene in the Touching Evil episode "Grief." Small fandom (it's for the American version starring Jeffery Donovan), recurring character, very episode-referential.

But I got one this weekend. It's scary how happy this makes me.

CSI season premiere promo on YouTube

Aka, omg this is going to be an intense season-opener.

So far, nobody really knows how Jorja Fox's contract negotiations went. CBS is keeping its mouth shut, all press releases are very carefully worded, Jorja hasn't said anything, and even the spoiler maven at TVGuide.com, Ausellio, will only say that he's "been sworn to secrecy" and that "it's complicated."

We do know she was on set for the season premiere, and you may find proof of that behind the cut.
