Is the smush name for Snape/Viktor Sniktor?

My [livejournal.com profile] hp_beholder gift posted today and it is GORGEOUS art--Snape/Viktor post-sex, with hooked noses, cigarette-smoking, and lots of incredible muscles on display. OMG LOVE. SO MUCH LOVE. You should go give the artist love because holy crap this is really, really beautiful. *flails like crazy* I cannot wait until reveals. :D

ART! For meeeeeee! \0/ \0/ \0/ \0/


[livejournal.com profile] oldenuf2nb did ART. For ME. Or rather actually for my Al/Scorpius figure skating fic Arabesque On Ice, and it's GORGEOUS. Holy crap. It's Scorpius in his figure skating costume and I may be flailing like crazy right now because it's so fantastic and it was just the absolute Best Way Ever to start off this kind of blah rainy Monday morning. Holy, holy crap.

*flails a bit more* I just can't even. SCORPIUS IN HIS COSTUME, YOU GUYS.

FIC: Arabesque on Ice (Albus Severus/Scorpius, NC-17)

So, this is the second fic I wrote for[livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest. You can read the other one here, if you happened to miss it. It's Al/Scorpius clubfic. \0/

Long story short, not long after I fell for the joy that is Johnny Weir, [livejournal.com profile] noeon mentioned she had a pinch hit in which the recipient had requested a possible non-magic sports AU, you know, like maybe figure skating, at which point I went OMG, GIMME NOW.

And thus Johnny!Scorpius was born. LOL.

Title: Arabesque on Ice

My [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays gift posted tonight and I'm all squeeful because it is gorgeous art that's so subtle and delicate and fairy-taleish. ZOMG. I heart it something fierce. \0/

Everyone should go look and tell the artist how awesome it is..and dear God, I want to live in that house so much. It would be fantastic. :D Although I suppose I'll allow Harry and Draco to live there, if they let me come visit. *G*

Also, huge thank yous to everyone who sent snowflakes earlier this week (and apologies for the belated thanks--I've been keeping myself offline in order to write the past couple of days). I meant to return the snowflake love once I got home from work on Monday night, but alas, LJ had turned the option off by the time I got to my laptop. But believe me when I say every single one of them brought a smile to my face on a day when that was sorely needed. You guys are seriously awesome. *hugs every damn one of you*

This and that, and recs of fic.

I am evidently ridonkulously homesick because I have the University of Florida/University of South Carolina football game on the TV and I hate football, whether college or NFL. But it's a South Carolina home game and (despite the fact that I am highly ambivalent about USC and its athletics program) I'm all HOME! WOOBIES! *sniffles*

Anyway. I caught up on two Spooks episodes today while procrastinating from writing and was going to rant about a certain plot development that occurred at the end of 8x03, but then [info - livejournal.com] reserve distracted me this awesome photo and I really think someone should write Harry/Draco fic based on it. *eyes certain segments of my flist speculatively* I am willing to beg, trust me.

Two fic recs! One's Snape/Draco, one's Harry/Draco.

The first is Clean and Filthy by [info - livejournal.com] entrenous88. It's a 5,000 word post-HBP Snaco written for the [info]daily_deviant kink costumes. It's got Spinner's End, power plays and Draco dressed as a French maid. Oh, and there may be a scorching hot boot. It's gorgeous and oh, it makes me miss Snape/Draco so much. I think once I finish some of these fics I'm working on at the moment, I might reward myself with a wee bit of Snaco writing.

The second is Cornbread and Sweet Tea by [info - livejournal.com] sor_bet and it's the prompt I chose to have written for me for the [info - livejournal.com] ownficfest. It's a Harry/Draco AU that takes place in the American South, and I adore how [info - livejournal.com] sor_bet weaves actual canon into the story while picking the characters up and making them truly Southern--and yet keeping them totally in character. It's a wonderful read and take it from this Southerner, it's spot-on. \0/

Have realized that it's six-thirty and I haven't eaten yet today. Hm. Probably should remedy that...

FIC: Black Coffee On A Lonely Night (HP, Harry/Draco, NC-17)

Reveals have gone up for the [info - livejournal.com] ownficfest, so I can now take responsibility for inflicting a non-magical Parliament/cricket/coffeshop fic on fandom. \0/

A huge, huge, huge thank you to those of you on my flist who pointed me in the right direction for cricket info. I ran up against the deadline in writing this fic, so I actually snipped the plot I'd developed in half at an appropriate point, which means for the couple of you who've poked me, yes, there will be a sequel at some not-so-distant point down the road and (in response to [info - livejournal.com] cursive's insistence that she wanted more cricket, dammit) I can say definitively that cricket will become even more of a plot point. *g*

Title: Black Coffee on a Lonely Night
Pairing: Harry/Draco, past Draco/Astoria
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: non-magical AU, bisexuality
Word Count: ~21,600
Summary: Draco owns a café in the city. Harry's a MP who comes in every morning, newspapers in one hand, BlackBerry in the other, and orders a triple espresso macchiato.
Author's Notes: Written for the 2009 [info - livejournal.com] ownficfest. Much love to [info - livejournal.com] cursive and [info - livejournal.com] noeon for their support and their suggestions. Many thanks also to my flist for advice regarding cricket and to the highly informative UK Parliament website, and a huge thank you to [info - livejournal.com] tray_la_la for the opportunity to write this.

Fic rec liek woah.

Drop everything and go read this fic.

I don't care if you hate Harry/Draco. Drop everything and go read this fic.

Blood and Brimstone is the latest offering in [info - livejournal.com] hd_career_fair. It's a fusion fic, a melding of the Potterverse with the world of Wicked Gentlemen, and it is phenomenal.

It had me at inventor!Draco.

You don't have to have read Wicked Gentlemen to understand this fic (though if you have, you'll love the side appearances by various WG characters); the author weaves the worlds together seamlessly, explaining what you need to know along the way.

This story goes beyond fanfic. It's a masterful, amazing, incredible tale that reads like something you'd pick up in Barnes & Noble. It's breathtaking. It's gorgeous. It's the kind of story that makes me wish I could write this well and that makes me so grateful that I had an opportunity to read something so beautiful.

If you love a good story, if your idea of an amazing night is curling up on the couch with a novel that captivates you and draws you into an entirely different world, read this fic. You won't be sorry.

It's 42,000 words of utter brilliance.

Signups open today at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC and run through Oct. 31. And fics aren't due until January 31, 2010, so you've lots of time post-holiday fests to start thinking about how to get Scorpius Malfoy laid. :D

From what I understand, cross-gen is quite welcome, as are all forms of strictly next-gen pairings. (Anybody want to write me Albus Severus/Viktor?) Het, slash, femmeslash and gen are also being encouraged.

Two H/D recs

Work continues to be ridiculous this week--lots of stress, lots of exhaustion, and I've been getting in to work an hour early every day. Blech. Will be glad when it settles; I'm behind on RL and fandom again, dammit. :/

But I've two fics I've read that have been highlights of the past few days, and I don't want anyone on my flist to miss them because they're delightful.

Rec the first: I was having a significantly crappy day last week and [info - livejournal.com] noeon wrote me a little pick-me-up Harry/Draco porn that utterly and completely made my day. In just a few thousand words we have brutally hot cigarette smoking, an angry, possessive Harry, a snarky, turned-on Draco, anal beads, and…well, I can't say the rest because it'll spoil it. It's delicious and sexy and if it doesn't make your toes curl, I don't know what will. It's just gorgeous. And will leave you incoherent. :D

If you're in the mood for a bit of brilliantly sexy, scorchingly hot, beautifully written smut, you must read this.

Yielding to Uncertainty by [info - livejournal.com] noeon

Rec the second: Let me say up front that this is not your usual Harry/Draco fic. The language is dense and tersely descriptive all at once, and it's very, very, very British, which is something I adore and crave in this fandom and surprisingly (and sadly) do not get enough of.

It is not an easy fic to read, and it's long--40,000 words long. You can't just fly through it. And if you're not British, some of the references will go over your head no matter how well-steeped you are in the culture--do not be afraid of this. Seriously.

Because it is so very, very, very, very worth the effort. Not to mention, meant to be savoured.

This fic is amazingly, beautifully, incredibly written, it's funny as hell, and it reminds me of those deliciously charming novels about the lower gentry living in rural English villages. Reading it made me ache to live in one, to be honest, as those sorts of novels always do. I adore this Harry and this Draco--and don't even get me started on how fantastic the supporting cast is. If you don't walk away loving Narcissa and Pansy and Blaise and Scorpius and Albus Severus, you…well, you need to go back and read the damn fic again, that's for certain. And then there are the OCs. I am in love with Dr. Vickers like you wouldn't believe, and would be more than happy for him to be my Rector. (Also, I'm entirely thrilled that the author chose to make Harry and Draco bisexual and to have them sincerely have been in love with their wives. That's a die-hard kink for me in H/D fic. I. Love. That.)

I cannot stress enough how amazing this fic is. It goes beyond fanfic and into the realm of literature, to be bluntly honest--it made me remember why I chose to focus on British authors when I was in grad school. If you have any love at all for Britain and its culture, you must read this fic.

It's witty, it's sharp, it's complex, it's wound through-and-through with legend and history and Anglicanism, it's shot up to the top of my all-time favourite HP fics list, and I suspect it will stay there for a very, very, very long time. (And I desperately want to know who wrote this because I want to give them a mad fangirling. The author of this fic gave me everything--and I do mean everything--that I've been gagging for in a H/D fic. Brava, whomever you are, and thank you. I'm awed and delighted by your work.)

So don't tell me to mind the gap, I want my f***ing money back...

So this weekend is the last chance to vote for fics in the [info]snarry_games! If you haven't gotten around to reading and voting on some of the fics yet, now's your chance...and hey, I'm not above bribing or begging people to read my Sing A Mad Rebellion. :D (Seriously, though, I am pretty proud of this fic; I really think it's the best one I've written so far in my fanfic career.) Anyway, Snarry fen, go read and go vote--for Team Cauldron, of course. :)

Also, [info - livejournal.com] glockgal posted a piece of Harry/Draco art I commissioned from her (look, look, see my icon?) and it's gorgeous. *squees and hugs it tight* Mine all mine all mine!!! \0/ \0/ It's actually an illustration from a fic that I'm currently working on and it's providing a great deal of inspiration for me to get to that particular scene, which happens to involve Harry and Draco kissing on the Albert Embankment in the rain. \0/ I am absolutely delighted with what Glock did--especially with Draco's clothes. *bounces up and down* Go look and tell her she's absolutely brilliant. :D

FIC: Sing A Mad Rebellion (Snape/Harry, NC-17)

So my [info]snarry_games fic was posted last night. I'm going to admit that I'm really a lot more nervous than I usually am upon fic-posting and have been since I turned this fic in. It took me until this afternoon to figure out why: I approached writing this story as if it were a novel, and the result is the closest I've come to writing such a creature. Eep. /0\

Anyway, should you like to read 56,000 words (give or take a few) of somewhat dystopic Snape/Harry, here you go. :)

Title: Sing A Mad Rebellion
Genre: Alive and Kicking
Prompts: Secrets and Lies, Assassination
Rating/Warnings/Kinks: NC-17, Highlight if you wish to know: *Non-Snarry pairing (non-explicit), het mentions, bisexuality, minor character death, politics, semi-epilogue compliance, violence*
Word Count: 55,991
Author Notes/Disclaimers/Betas: A huge thank you to my betas [info - livejournal.com] noeon and [info - livejournal.com] goseaward, and much gratitude to Noe for coaxing this story into being. Massive thanks also to the mods for their patience.

This fic owes a great debt to such works as Orwell's 1984, Alan Moore's V for Vendetta, the film The Manchurian Candidate and the works of John LeCarre, all of which in some manner provided inspiration for the conception and writing of the story. Danny Foster (and his wife Kirsty) are taken from the BBC series Party Animals which revolves around the lives of young Labour and Conservative political researchers and lobbyists. Nemworth Interrogation Unit and various other MI5-related elements are taken from or influenced by the BBC series Spooks. In addition, I must give major props to the highly informative and incredibly helpful factsheets hosted on the website of the United Kingdom Parliament, which, when printed, fill two reams of paper and a four-inch binder. The title is a nod toward a fragment of verse by John Taylor.

Summary: The State Security Forces come not in the middle of a dark night as one might expect, but on a bright, sunshiny Sunday morning just after the sausages are set on the kitchen table.

  • Mary of Peter, Paul and Mary died. This makes me ridiculously sad...my dad had all their albums and I grew up on them. He even used to sing Puff the Magic Dragon to me as a lullaby when I was little. Anyway. For Mary.

  • If you like Snarry and you've a love for Regency romances (and come on, how can you not?), then you should immediately hie yourself over to today's [info]snarry_games postings and read [info - livejournal.com] ze_dragon's charming, hysterical, deliciously filled with cross-dressing Harry and Draco and Snape in a cravat fic, The Unexpected Bride. While betaing it, I laughed my head off at the machinations of Lord Snape. \0/ It's a fantastic, delightful story, and if Harry Potter wandering around in an Empire-waist dress being pursued by a rakish Snape doesn't charm your socks off, I don't know what will. :D Go.

Recs, and can someone please tell Kanye to stop dropping his drawers in public?

Kanye West, you're an asshole. And I don't even know Taylor Swift's music, but I'm about to go download her album from iTunes whether I like it or not just so she'll get some money. It's the least I can do as a protest for such douchebaggery. Somebody needs to get that man into therapy or rehab. Fast.

I've been really tired for about a week or so now; I think I've got some sort of low-grade virus that isn't bad enough to cause me to feel okay with staying home from work, but which is just draining enough to make me fatigued and brain-dead for most of the day. :/ It's been fun, let me tell you. I meant to spend all weekend writing. Instead I spent most of it sleeping, and I'm still ridiculously tired. Very annoying, let me tell you. Particularly when one has deadlines which one is not going to meet because one is so zonked one cannot think, much less write coherently. *sadface*

Anyway. Two recs for my flist....

There's an H/D fic in [info - livejournal.com] hp_summersmut that I got to beta and it's fantastic and I think everyone should read it. Voices From The Fog by [info - livejournal.com] noeon. It's a smidge under 14,000 words, it's set in Amsterdam, it has cigartette smoking (shut up, it's a kink for me), it has a Harry that I adore and a Draco who is deliciously standoffish and snarky, and I love it so much I've forced Noe into writing me a sequel. Srlsy, go read it.

And for those Snarry fen on my flist, you should run now to the [info]snarry_games and check out [info - personal] bethbethbeth's Everything He Ever Wanted, which I also got to beta. It's one of the most original takes on the epilogue I've seen, and it's charming and chilling and has the best ending ever. \0/ Although I'd kill for a sequel to it as well. *eyes Beth* So go read it too.

Love can cure your problems, you're so lucky I'm around

It's 3 am and I have finally, finally, after about 14 combined hours of toil, beat the damn CSS code for my LJ into submission.

This redesign was a bear--I went with more CSS graphics than I usually do which required math to lay them out so they all matched up. But. Vini, vidi, vici! And it's been tested in Firefox and Safari on the Mac by me and [info - livejournal.com] ze_dragon, and I pestered the hell out of [info - livejournal.com] noeon and [info - livejournal.com] cursive tonight, too, to test it in Firefox and IE on PCs. Everything seems to be working so far. *knock wood*

I like it the more I look at it; it's different than what I usually design and that pleases me muchly. Although there's a part of me that feels slightly guilty because this is the first time in three years I haven't had a Rhett-centric design, but I wanted Harry/Draco this go around, dammit. I still love you, Rhett, and I'm going to make a mood theme for you, okay? Okay.

I now have the most awesomest of awesome LJ headers, if I do say so meself. I commissioned [info - livejournal.com] draykonis to draw Harry and Draco for me. All I told her was that I wanted them both smoking and drinking at a bar, and then I pointed her to a promo photo from Mad Men and said, these clothes are cool, and she came up with the most spectacular artwork. Go here and tell her how fantastic it is. :D I may have made a complete idiot of myself at work, squeeing into my fist, when she sent it to me Thursday.

Also, OMG, [info - livejournal.com] draykonis is really an amazing artist. Her style is gorgeous, and she has a wonderful eye for detail. Just take a look at her art tag. I could lose myself in there--I don't even have to know the fandoms she's drawing in, the art's just that beautiful,and her original stuff is delicious. I think everyone should go fangirl her right now. God knows I am. *g*

I have smacked this art all over my journal. Header, userinfo, default icon...ZOMG, I HEART IT SO MUCH. I mean, seriously, you guys. Harry and Draco sitting around in a bar, smoking and getting drunk together. IT'S LIKE MY DREAM COME TRUE. \0/\0/\0/ I'll be over in the corner, nursing a vodka gimlet and waiting for them to make out with each other.

Come on. You know it'll happen eventually. (Yes, Cordelia, it will. In my head. It will. *g*)

My heart. *adores Snape and Draco* I could look at this forever, I think. THE RAIN, YOU GUYS. I have such a thing for rain. (The fullsize version is here but do make sure you go back here to squee at [info - livejournal.com] xxaphaniax. *g*)

And then after flailing at [info - livejournal.com] xxaphaniax for that gorgeous bit of art, everyone who has even the slightest interest in Snape/Draco should go immediately over to her journal and flail over this adorable Snaco chibi. Draco's little naked chest! \0/ Snape's crossed arms! \0/ Draco's smirk! \0/

ETA: And for you Harry/Draco peeps on my flist, you may be interested in these portraits of Harry and Draco. :D
