Unsurprisingly, given that it is January in New Hampshire, it is snowing outside. This means that I have bundled myself up in the kitchen, with a blanket, a computer, a space heater, and occasionally a cat; and I am theoretically working on my thesis. However, I feel absolutely no desire to work on my thesis right now, because—well, I am not actually graduating this year, like most other seniors are; and thus, I have plenty of time to work on it. I suppose it doesn't help that I have since decided I do NOT want to do environmental science research, which is what my thesis is on; thus, it is interesting, but not entirely urgent. I do want to do a thesis, but at the moment my thesis advisor's vague "have something for me by the end of winter break" seems very abstract.

I have also discovered fandom, by which I mean that I have been working on a fic. I know, I never thought those words would come out of my mouth (or fingers) either, but it's true. Unfortunately, I have started to work on Teddy Lupin, which means that, of course, I couldn't possibly plan anything less than his entire Hogwarts career. So I spent all morning going through all of Teddy's relatives and marking down their ages and the years that they enter Hogwarts. I also figured out how old various professors from canon are, so that I could figure out how long they might be expected to retain their professorships after the Battle of Hogwarts. Clearly, quite a few of the professors will have retired or will retire while Teddy is at Hogwarts; so, I started to figure out who would replace them ... and what years those professors would have graduated from Hogwarts and entered Hogwarts as professors ... It was much more entertaining than my thesis.

Luckily, though, I have thus far refrained from coming up with names for every single student in every single year while Teddy is at Hogwarts, but I can definitely see why someone (**coughcough**) might feel the urge to do so. I, after all, am now figuring out the logistics of the course schedules, the professors who teach those courses, what the professor's schedules are, and the like. Not quite as extreme, but in the same vein. And who knows—I might very well end up naming everyone in Hogwarts while Teddy's there!
