I have been SO lucky in fest exchanges this year. Not only were my [info]snaco_exchange and [info]smutty_claus gifts amazing, but YOU GUYS. My [info]merry_smutmas gift?


It's art--a series of panels that tell a Snape/Draco story and it's BRILLIANT. There's rain (!!!!!!! I LOVE RAIN!!!!!) and there's cigarette smoking (which is SO one of my kinks like you wouldn't believe and the way it's woven into not only the storyline but the art itself is BEYOND brilliant) and there's greasy, wet, seriously hot blowjob-giving Snape, and there's blushing Draco, and there's an amazingly hysterical twist at the end, and the whole thing is just GORGEOUS.

You have to go look at it.

I can't wait to find out who drew this because it is seriously amazing. I love it so much, and I want to hug it tight and squee, squee, squee at how incredible my gift is and how much I love this fandom and how much I LOVE MY OTP.

Snape! Draco! LOVE.

Go look. Now. Tell the artist how much you love it, because trust me, you will.

You guys. YOU GUYS.


I've already read it twice and I'm going to read it again shortly and you should all go and read it because it is perfection.

This is the Snape/Tonks I've always wanted. It's long and it's plotty (despite the author's protests *g*) and it's sexy and it takes canon from OotP onward and tweaks it in the absolute most perfect way ever. And there are so many things about it that I love, but I can't list them all because I don't want to spoil the fic for you, but let me just say that any fic that manages to incorporate Russian prison tattoos into a love story IS AWESOME.

I'm flailing about wildly and I want to know who wrote it right now because I want to throw myself on this author and fangirl like crazy because this fic is so amazing. I love this Snape--SNARKY AND NOBLE AND STILL A BIT OF A PRICK--and I love this Tonks--TONKS OH MY GOD, THIS IS THE TONKS I LOVE WITH HER ATTITUDE AND HER SEXINESS--and I love the twisting of canon--TAKE THAT CERTAIN PARTS OF HBP AND DH--and the sex is seriously hot--SEMI-PUBLIC SEX, YOU GUYS--and the ending is the BEST. I was hoping. I was really hoping and then YES.

Go and read it. No, seriously. Read it and tell this author how brilliant this story is.

Okay, so the last time I saw 8 inches of snow it was 1988, I was a high school junior, and my entire city shut down for half a week. (No, seriously. Entire city.)

Today, I trudged through 8 inches of snow to go to work.

Damn cities with snowplows.

On the other hand, yesterday on the way home, for the first time in my life, I saw snow falling on the ocean. Talk about weird.

Have two pictures I took on the way to work today. Both are from my neighbour's yard.

Tonight maybe I'll post the pics of the wee Snape and Draco snowmen [info]ze_dragon and I made last night...those are on my laptop. :)

So. I'm in the mood for some HP fic. Rec me some really good Snape/Harry or Harry/Draco? (Yes, you heard that right.)

Also, why is there not more kidfic and mpreg in Harry Potter? Because I'm utterly desperate for kidfic and mpreg involving any combination of Snape, Harry, and Draco...hey, don't look at me that way. I have entirely no shame in my love of mpreg and kidfic. Babies=made of awesome. Babies with Snape and/or Draco=EVEN MORE MADE OF AWESOME.

Seriously. Snape with cranky two-year-old? Tell me that's not comedy gold.

So keep me in your bed all day, nothing heals me like you do

I had really a bizarre dream last night about having Thanksgiving brunch at a very schna-schna restaurant in Malibu with Ari and Mrs. Ari from Entourage....and my toddler. WTF. My brain is a strange place. Of course what amuses me is that I'm more WTF about the toddler than Ari and Mrs. Ari. Because they seem more plausible. Oh, fandom.

Okay, so I'm still working on the soundtracks that I offered up a couple of weeks ago. (It's taking me longer to pull them together than I thought...) So this one was requested by [info]supergrover24 for the oh so very NC-17-rated Pete/Patrick bunkfic she and I wrote together this summer: I've Got Your Number One Bullet Right Here, Baby.

The arc I followed for this soundtrack is want/desire -> sex -> love. Which echoes the arc of the story. :)

The legalse again: Songs are for sampling purposes only; if you like the artists, go buy them at the retailer of your choice, the files will be up for one week and then taken down, right-click save-as, and comments would be lovely for bandwidth tracking.

I've Got Your Number One Bullet Right Here, Baby )

And I don't know what it says about me, but right now I'm in the mood for my ultimate comfort-type fic. Which for me is wedding, marriage and/or kidfic. Unfortunately, finding those sorts of fic in my comfort pairings...is not easy. Although I've found some Pete/Patrick lately. But finding it in Snape/Draco or Frank/Mikey is pretty much nigh unto impossible. And I'm not even going to touch Harry/Draco. I've read all the good ones there. Sigh. I really want Snape-with-a-baby-and-married-to-Draco, dammit. Or better yet, Snape-married-to-Draco and their kid at Mommy and Me with Pete and his and Patrick's kid. THAT? WOULD BE AWESOME. And where is that fic, I ask you? Where?


I'm going to have to write that now. Dammit.

Okay, this may explain the toddler in the dream. Hm.

Harry winds up fucking Hermione and Ron's like but I'm only left with Ginny...she's me sister

[info]luciamad pointed me towards this--Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier geeking out about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for half an hour about fifteen, twenty minutes or so into their latest podcast.

What amuses me the most is the realization that we as fans? Are UBER-geeks. Seriously. There's a point where Kevin and Scott can't remember the name of Harry's owl despite calling themselves fans and I'm screaming HEDWIG, DAMMIT, IT'S HEDWIG at my iTunes.

But it's worth it for their discussion of sex in the Potterverse. (Hetcetric, alas. But still amusing, and I want to go, oh, honeys. If you don't think we've already done ALL of that in fanfic.... *G*) And the discussion about Snape from the POV of fans who aren't as obsessive as us is really interesting.

And yes, the Filch/Felch joke is made. Oh, boys. You're so five years behind fandom...

I really love your hairdo, yeah, I'm glad you like mine too

Because [info]bethbethbeth loves me and tolerates my OMGEMOBOYZ squee and I am not-so-secretly trying to tempt her over to the Dark Side(tm)--after all, we have cookies. And Patrick Stump. This is a hard combination to resist. *nods*--she wrote me Snape/Gerard commentfic.

There is just nothing sexier than greasy black hair. WHAT CAN I SAY? I cannot help myself.

True fact: Snape/Gerard is my fandom crossover OTP. Along with Draco/Pete. And Harry/Patrick. I'm wondering if it'd be possible to have Snape/Gerard/Draco/Pete/Harry/Patrick. BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.

I'm just saying.

I think Gerard and Pete would agree with me.

Now I have to go pretend to work. And maybe sneak some writing in. Perhaps.

Also, if my iPod would stop skipping songs on me today, that would be brill. *eyes Marik balefully*

Oh Celeste...

People. I have worked so hard today it's not funny and tomorrow's going to be just as insane. Sigh. I like my goofing-off-at-work days so much better, thanks. Ah well. I'm off for three days next week to go see MCR, so it evens out.

So my new MacBook arrived today and it is the bomb. I just downloaded something at 1200KB per second. DUDE. I've never gone above 300 before.

I shifted 20 GB of crap over from my old computer tonight and I still have 100 GB on the hard drive. THIS ROCKS OMG. And it now has as the desktop a photo of Rhett Miller AS HE SWEATED ON ME, PEOPLE, and it has been dubbed Severus (as usual for my laptops) but this time it's actually appropriate because it's a black MacBook rather than a white one. So now I have the whole Snape family: a black laptop named Severus, a white external HD named Draco, and a black iPod covered with a skin of Botticelli's Venus named Marik. (That last will only be amusing to people who follow Dungeons, I'm afraid, and are accquainted with Snape's illegitimate former art thief son, but trust me IT'S FUNNY. Well. Okay. To me at least.)

There will be pictures to come tomorrow and you can all point your fingers and mock me for my Cult of Macintosh geekage. :D

Back on the bandslash front, [info]ze_dragon and I have decided that Insanejournal needs a bandslash comm. So. We made one. [info]hoodies. If you're over at Insanejournal, feel free to join...it's open for fic, art, recs, squee, you name it. Slash, het, femmeslash and gen are all welcome and the order of the day is to have fun. So hop over and join in. We may even be having fic challenges at times. Because the EYELINER LOVE MUST BE BROUGHT TO INSANEJOURNAL. *nods sagely and pushes all IJ bandslashers towards the comm* (Speaking of IJ, let me just say [info]squeaky rocks. I've been in communication with him tonight, and he's just beyond fantastic.)

Also, Dragon and I may have another bandslashy project in the works. We shouldn't be allowed to hang out together, really. We come up with mad ideas. Trust me. And I may have convinced her to not only go see FOB in Massachusetts with me in Nov, but also maybe even the next night in Connecticut. MUAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA. Do y'all know what I'll be like if I see Patrick Stump two nights in a row? Yeah. Slight implosion.

And on the the Harry Potter side, oh my God, you guys. I have two recs for you today. So you know how [info]icarusancalion writes like the BEST Percy ever? Yeah. Well, she wrote a wee bit of Snape/Percy for me and you guys. Oh my God. You have to read it because it's awesome. Small Sacrifices. Go. Read now. I heart Icarus's Percy more than I can possibly say. And her Snape? Is fantabulous.

And [info]draco_a_malfoy drew a truly gorgeous Draco piece (with implied Snape/Draco) called Necromancy, based on a joke I made pre-DH about Draco doing necromancy. I just. The colours are incredible and the composition is gorgeous and it makes me ache, y'all. It's so beautiful.

*hearts on [info]icarusancalion and [info]draco_a_malfoy*

Still behind on email/comments..that may continue the next day or two. Work is...sigh. Yeah.
