Experimental porn

I've not written much lately, and I decided (since I can't sleep) to write a snippet of Merlin/Arthur porn. It's unbeta'd and likely needs work given I'm out of practice. Maybe someone will enjoy. :D

Fic:Piecing Together the Cracks [Gwen/Morgana, PG-13]

[profile] camelotsolstice reveals were posted quite a while ago. [personal profile] cherrybina wrote my fabulous fic, Everywhere We Touch. I've long been a fan of her writing, so I consider myself very lucky indeed. I should have known with Bina's love of rimming that it was hers. ;-)

I wrote a Gwen/Morgana fic for [profile] plumora. I enjoyed writing it for the infusion of emotion and the bit of meta regarding Series Two. I'm quite pleased with it, really. Let me know what you think if you read it. ♥

Title: Piecing Together the Cracks
Author: [personal profile] bewarethesmirk
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Gwen/Morgana, hints of Morgana/Morgause, Arthur/Merlin and Arthur/Gwen
Warnings: Implied infidelity, angst with a hopeful ending
Spoilers: All of Series One and Two
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~2,000
Summary: Gwen tosses and tumbles night after night, clutching for someone who isn't there.
Author's Note: Written for [profile] plumora in [profile] camelotsolstice based upon the prompt of 'leaving.' Thank you very much to [personal profile] glass_icarus for betaing. ♥

Fic recs (Merlin and HP)

My [profile] camelotsolstice fic was posted yesterday, and I have an inkling of a feeling of who might have written it. ;-) It's utterly fantastic - Merlin/Arthur, with bondage and magic!sex and rimming. There's a wonderful tenderness - a heavy sense of possession and we-belong-together without being too fluffy. Merlin is having his way here - he's strong-willed and so hot, but it's not overdone and Arthur seems to enjoy it. There's still the challenge between them - they seem comfortable enough with one another and genuinely tender and loving, while still casually bantering. It's such a great dynamic and makes me so giddy. Go read!

Everywhere We Touch by Anon (Merlin/Arthur, NC-17, magic!sex, light bondage, ~1800 words)
Summary: Arthur returns to Camelot after a long journey away.

Eventually, I hope to work my way through some of the [profile] hd_holidays fics. I read The World Thy Gaol by [personal profile] novembersnow earlier, and highly recommend you all do the same. :D Snow writes in such a seamless prose with strong verbs and great uses of language, sharp dialogue and clever flashes of humor. Nothing is too overdone and for it, the overall effect is so much better. She's a star of a writer, I swear. The fic explores Harry and Draco's life postwar - especially Draco's - but what they have in common really helps the pairing click for me. There's the very real antagonism I miss in a lot of H/D fic nowadays and the tension. The fic is hot as hell, too, because of the tension. This is a less-than-perfect Harry, which I appreciate. Draco is given a lot of agency and I'm able to really empathize with him here. The ending leaves enough open but is satisfying. Go read - it's clever, solid, hot, funny, and creative.

The World Thy Gaol by [personal profile] novembersnow (Harry/Draco, R, 18300 words)
Summary: In the post-war world, nothing seemed to fit quite right anymore.

Fic: Slick n' Easy (Harry/Draco, NC-17)

Title: Slick n’ Easy
Author: [personal profile] bewarethesmirk
Pairings: Harry/Draco, Draco/Astoria, Astoria/other, and Ron/Hermione, with fleeting mentions of past Harry/Ginny
Summary: When Astoria Malfoy is investigated for opening an underground lubricant business targeted at Muggles (to painful effect), an irate Draco comes to Harry, though Harry doesn't quite know why. What Harry does know is that he’s noticing very odd things about Malfoy. (Who knew Malfoy had such long eyelashes?)
Rating: NC-17
Warning(s): Infidelity but not between canon pairing and not very explicit, dark and inappropriate humour, arsehole!Zacharias. Oh, and dirty sex. EWE.
Word Count: ~12,600
Author's Notes: Written for the 2009 round of [profile] hd_holidays for [personal profile] celandineb. My proverbial hat is off to the mods for their patience with me and making this a great round. Much love and many thanks to [personal profile] lavillanueva, who always supports my writing, challenges me and listens. ♥ Thanks to [personal profile] lavillanueva, [personal profile] melusinahp and [personal profile] marguerite_26 for the speedy betaing and hand-holding. Thanks also to [personal profile] misscake for betaing, as well, and at superhuman speed! Any remaining mistakes are, of course, my own.

Fic: Slick n' Easy (Harry/Draco, NC-17)

The [profile] hd_holidays reveals were posted yesterday, and now I can thank [profile] silentauror for my fantastic fic, Portrait of a Headmaster. :D Thank you so much, hon! ♥ It was fantastic.

Congrats to [personal profile] tray_la_la who guessed my identity in the guessing poll, or had inside info. ;-) Either way, I'm happy to write you something. :D I already owe you Pansy/Ginny.

I wrote Slick n' Easy for [personal profile] celandineb, which was a very feel-good type fic. I had fun with the cracky premise.

I've not been following my flist that much lately because of crazy work hours. If anyone has recced this, please let me know so I can properly thank them!

Rec: Celle Qui Sais Vous Garrotter (Harry/Draco, NC-17)

The wonderful and lovely [personal profile] marguerite_26 was gifted with this absolutely wonderful bit of wonderfully written, viscerally hot and emotionally satisfying porn-with-a-bit-of-plot. It's an interesting take on how kink can become something not-necessarily-kinky for the individual and, within a relationship, be something else altogether, develop new meanings. The author uses this to explore Harry and Draco's relationship, the anxiety of "coming out" about personal needs with one's partner. It's such a creative, well-done and emotionally complex piece. Harry and Draco are wonderful; plus, there's great snark, which I usually put in the 'win' column. This Harry I love so much, and the ending makes me very happy indeed.

The title means "the one who knows how to tie you up" en francais. :D :D

It's thoughtful, well-written and alive with intelligent emotional nuance. Go read!

Celle Qui Sais Vous Garrotter by Anonymous in [profile] hd_holidays (Harry/Draco, NC-17, Warnings: Established relationship, self-bondage, bondage, barely-there d/s.)
Summary: “Two orgasms and Harry's hand resting tentatively on his hip and Draco still felt wound tight, aching somewhere too deep to rub away.”

Dec. 17th, 2009

Rec: Portrait of a Headmaster (Harry/Draco, NC-17)

IT'S MINE! IT'S ALL MINE! BWAHAHAHAHA!

*flails*

So, my [profile] hd_holidays gift!fic has been up for a couple of days, and I finished reading it really early this morning not that I actually went to sleep first. :D

GO READ IT YOU ALL. SO GOOD.

Portrait of a Headmaster by Someone Awesome (H/D, NC-17)
Summary: When Death Eaters find their way into the Hogwarts portrait collection, the Headmaster is forced to work with the Head Auror to find a way to protect the castle, including their own children.

It's a well-written, solid fic, with excellent characterisation and plotting. But even more than that? It's extremely original. Draco is the Headmaster of Hogwarts - which I'd never conceived of before this, but the author makes it work so well. Draco faces personal challenges, and both the plot and Harry serve to help him find new aspects of himself. The premise of the plot itself - Death Eaters infiltrating via potraits! - is so clever. It's an incredibly unique, enjoyable fic, with fluid writing, plenty of snark and emotion. ♥ And the sex? Hot, of course. Plus, it's ~20K, so if you really want something to sink your teeth into, here you are!

I'm so, so pleased with this gift. :D :D

Anyone want to pinch-hit for [info]snarry_holidays?

Hey everyone!

We're not in a dire need of pinch hitters, but I do need one fic written in the next week. If you can pull together something good and possibly porny in short time, email me at bewarethesmirk@gmail.com.

Fic: Like This (Morgana/Nimueh, NC-17)

Merlin, Morgana/Nimueh, ~350 words, NC-17
Warnings: explicit rimming, straight-up PWP, nasty
Summary: There are many ways to be fucked.

Hey, I needed a break from writing fest fics. And [info - personal] b_hallward seems to like this pairing. *g*

HP Holiday Recs Part I (and some other things, too!)

Here, have some recs! :D I'm in the process of reading several [info] hd_holidays fics at once (current mission is to finish Savage), so if there's not a fic here, it's just because I'm behind. This is more a reflection of what I've had time to read and liked. ♥

Also, remember to check out the postings at [info - community] snarry_holidays and comment, if you can!

Sorry if you saw this earlier - I posted on LJ first and now crossposting to IJ and DW.

A couple of Merlin recs!

A few days ago I filled out the shippy meme and one of the questions asked who'd I'd like to see on a double date. Well, clearly the answer is Gwen & Morgana and Merlin & Arthur.

Well, the awesome [info] fitzette wrote an epically fabulous AU with just that set-up: the OT4 on a double date. It's Merlin/Arthur which culminates in angry sex and it's so delicious. [info] fitzette has these really gorgeous way of writing - concise and clear, tight pacing, well-placed humour and pitch perfect characterisation. Everything is spot-on, just the way I like it. ;-)

Go read Double Date here (Merlin/Arthur, NC-17, 3700 words)
"It's a good idea," Merlin interrupted, and it was. A double date was exactly what he needed to take his mind off the really inappropriate thoughts he was starting to have about his best mate. Continuing to have. Whatever, it was a good idea.

And now for a couple of multi-ship Merlin recs )

FIC: Puzzle Pieces [Gwen/Morgana, R, 500 words]

{Merlin, Gwen/Morgana, 500 words. R for a bit of sex. For [info - personal] puckling, who is unbearably kind and sweet (sorry if I'm ruining your reputation *eg*). ♥ ♥ I hope you enjoy this, hon! Unbetaed, so feel free to point out mistakes, anyone. I seem to be writing a lot of drabble sequences...}

I'm waiting to watch 2x04 tonight with an Awesome Person, and I'm dying with suspense! This doesn't contain any spoilers for 2x04, though. Not unless there's a sudden, explicit f/f sex scene, in which case, lmk, 'kay?
