fic larger than lifesize (hp, lavender/parvarti, pg)

Title: larger than lifesize
Author: [personal profile] bewarethesmirk
Rating: PG
Pairing Parvarti/Lavender
Words: ~1,500
Summary: Parvarti enjoys working with her best friend, Lavender, at a high-end fashion designer, except she's sort-of in love with Lavender, who's in love with dating. And then there's Pansy.
Notes: This was written for the informal HP femslash exchange for [personal profile] magnetic_pole, who requested Lavender/Parvarti and "teamwork" as her prompt. I do hope you enjoy this, my dear! Thanks to [personal profile] b_hallward for betaing, and [personal profile] woldy for putting this whole thing together! This is the first thing I've written in forever and it was a blast to write. The title is taken from "Lifesize" by A Fine Frenzy.

merlin recs!

I quit my job about two weeks ago and so I have had more time to read fic and most of that fic has been in Merlin. I also met [personal profile] deerang2002 last weekend, who is an absolute darling. We had yummy Thai food and then had coffee and talked about life and fandom and fics we love. I realized I clearly have been out of fandom too long when I had not even heard of the "BNF fic."

Here's a conglomeration of recs. May of these have been rec'd on my flist lately. Thus: many of you have probably read them. Either way, I hope you find something new here or are reminded of some great fic you've already read.

If you find any typos, please let me know!

Behold the recs! )

warning: zombie apocalypse

Stolen from [personal profile] woldy: There's this meme going around about which five of your own fics you'd save if the rest of the internet was destroyed by the online zombie apocalypse.

Insta-rec: Five Times Draco Malfoy Got Sacked (And One Time He Didn't) by Anonymous

This is [personal profile] faithwood's gift over at [profile] hd_holidays, and it's lovely. I enjoyed it so much, I demand you go read it right now. Solid writing, funny, hot and great characterization. It's set right after the war and we get to see as Draco tries to pick his life back up.

Five Times Draco Malfoy Got Sacked (And One Time He Didn't) (H/D, NC-17, ~18,500 words)
Summary: After the Dark Lord was destroyed, Draco Malfoy had to start all over. He had no idea it would be quite so difficult.

Fest fics thus far!

Hey all! Thanks for all the great recs. ♥ I've only begun to read, but here's a list of what I've enjoyed so far. I've not been reading in any sort of order, so please don't take offense if your rec or fic isn't here yet. ;-) Most of these are, admittedly, from [profile] hd_holidays.

There's a reason everyone's reccing it

Chest Contest by [personal profile] new_kate is worth every rec I've seen on my flist today. It's Bradley/Colin/Eoin and the chemistry in the fic is sweltering, the sex hot and there's layers of emotion that make the sex even more captivating. If you're a Bradley/Colin shipper but are uninterested in reading a threesome, you should reconsider. This fic is excellent and will guarantee the need of...well. ;-) I'll leave it up to you to pick your poison.

Can I haz Merlin nao?

Hi everybody! *gathers you into a big hug* I've been failing massively lately at balancing RL and fandom - hell, I've had trouble just balancing life. I've read one really good [profile] paperlegends fic, and I have several others open, and even more yet to explore.

I've been feeling enthralled about Merlin again lately, and though I've not had time to read all the articles and interviews, I've been squeeing over all the pretty pics and opening up millions of tabs. Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch Merlin till late tonight (PST, even!) because I'm working (yes, on Saturday), having drinks with [personal profile] chaeche and our SOs and then going on a date to the symphony. ♥ Which, is to say, it's not a particularly bad reason to miss Merlin.

But still.

Expect squee from me later, and I hope the new first episode inspires me to write. I'm really looking forward to Morgana especially, and I might write some femslash - given there will be more Merlin/Arthur than one can shake a stick at (again, not a bad thing; it's still my Merlin OTP).

This RL/fandom divide is something I'm going to have to learn to balance, especially given I'm going to have four shows (Glee, SPN, Merlin and Gossip Girl) to follow this fall (which is, amusingly, a lot for me).

Off to skedaddle back to work, but I will return later with little stars of gay in my eyes.

Taking time at the end of hellish day to say...

I think it's pretty obvious, but I'm not going to be tweeting or Facebooking your comments (or mine, for that matter). I respect everyone's privacy etc etc.

Be back later for more in-depth post-age. For now, g'night. ♥

Fic Rec: The Bang and the Clatter by snegurochka_lee (HP, Tom Riddle/James Jr.)

Whenever Lee writes something, you know you're in for a treat. I'm never disappointed. I like everything she writes, and more often than not, I'm awed. Here's an example:

The Bang and the Clatter (Tom Riddle/James Jr, R)

Wait! Don't go running in the other direction because of the pairing. I'm not easily sold on Tom Riddle, and I never think he's sexy. But Lee shows Tom Riddle in a way that I've never seen carried off this well before - he's seductive, powerful, all he should be in canon. Probably what JKR envisioned. It's a story that's set way in the future, and it's refreshing for it. It's dark and employs a devious and clever narrative device that has you on your knees. It's a gorgeous story - you should go read and let Lee know what you think. :)
