Drabble: Relationship Focus

Title: Relationship Focus
Author: [personal profile] alisanne
Pairing/Characters: Severus Snape/Kingsley Shacklebolt.
Word Count: 100 x 9
Rating: NC-17
Challenge: Written for [livejournal.com profile] snape100/[info]snape100/[community profile] snape100's prompt # 734: Snape's New Year's Resolutions - Focus on Relationship(s).
This is part Forty-Six of my Snape: Horcrux Hunter series (LJ/IJ/DW).
Warning(s): AU.
Beta(s): [personal profile] sevfan and emynn.

Relationship Focus )



Calling all Harry Potter convention goers (or wannabe convention goers)!

I just registered for Potterversecon, which is an upcoming convention in Baltimore. Check out the page and see what you think.

I posted about it last year ([personal profile] dementordelta and I attended) and because it was so much fun, were going back. *bounces*

So, this is your opportunity! If you're in the area, or looking for a convention to attend, or have never been to one and would like to go, please consider this one. And if there are enough of us from the online HP community going, maybe we can host some panels? The call for panels is still open. *tempts*


Saturday Recs!

I've been blown away by the offerings at [community profile] hp_goldenage's Salt and Pepper Fest, so time for some recs! TBH, just about everything there is great, but these are the submissions I especially enjoyed. :)


Seeking Crumple-Horned Snorkacks and Blibbering Humdingers by ANON, Luna Lovegood, G.

This gorgeously executed piece of art perfectly captures Luna's carefree spirit.
The look in her eyes, her hair, her walking stick...*sigh* Just go look, you won't be sorry.


Of Dirigible Plums and Bad Proposals by ANON, Ron/Harry, PG-13, 2461 words.

This fic! OMG, it is glorious. Ron and Harry are older and know each other so well, except for one little detail. Ron's inner voice here is SPOT ON, and seeing Harry through his eyes made me fall head over heels for him. UNF.
There are some great lines in this, but one of my faves has to be:

“What I don’t get,” Harry says when Ron finishes, “is why your Mum’s so insistent about you getting married now. I mean –” he pauses as his eyes rake over Ron’s body in a gesture that’s as coldly assessing as it is intimate. He’s been an auror for far too long for the way he looks at people to be entirely reassuring. “You’re not exactly young anymore,” he continues. “So why now?”

Ron sighs – he’s been waiting for that question.

“There’s a curse,” he says.

Yeah. This Harry? He's the bomb. I get it, Ron. I totally get it. Go read, and you'll get it, too.

Thistle Honey by ANON, Minerva/Severus, PG-13, 1075 words.

If you give this gloriously understated story a chance it will grow on you. It's subtle, with passion thrumming beneath, much like the relationship between these two, I suspect. I legit teared up after reading. The eternal devotion and love depicted are beautiful. <3

Life Has Just Begun by ANON, Harry/Severus, NC-17, 6500 words.

This lovely story depicting a deep friendship between Harry and Severus in their later years starts out as a perfectly reasonable conversation between close friends, then morphs into delightfully sweet and sexy coming out in which Harry learns being gay is not so bad. Even if he's only admitting it later in life. Go check it out if you enjoy stellar writing.

Find Your Way Back by ANON, Harry/Draco, NC-17, 26000 words.

Yes, it's long, but set aside some time and get ready for some delicious hurt/comfort, pining, and some really satisfying sex. The premise is fun! Harry and Draco got divorced 30 years prior, and now Harry's getting remarried, only their bond is still there. How do they dissolve it? Why by living together of course. If they're not in love, the bond will spontaneously break. (I give you one guess what happens). The author takes us on an intense ride that had me aching and cheering for them and the ending was brilliant and perfect. Go, read, and enjoy!

If you like any of these (or anything else at the fest) do leave the creators some love. It is always appreciated. <3

Media Stuff #10

I consumed quite a few things since the last entry, because I had started to feel better. That kinda changed again, though. I had a pretty bad reaction to the new meds, bad enough that I thought I had accidently overdosed. First I got really sleepy, then I started throwing up. My favourite neighbour had to drive me to the doctor because I could barely stay awake. Turns out I'm just really very sensitive when it comes to codeine. *sigh* Anyway, here we go!


Black Swan (2010) - Mental illness, toxic environments, obsession, those aren't easy topics. Nina's perspective was very well done, especially in the dance scenes. I totally understand why Natalie Portman got that Oscar.

Silver Linings Playbook (2012) - Yeah, I guess it was all right. As I said about Black Swan, mental illness, toxic environments, obsession, those aren't easy topics. I don't quite understand why it got Jennifer Lawrence that Oscar, though. *g*

What We Do in the Shadows (2014) - *snicker* Vampire flatmates doing a reality tv report on their life in modern times. Cool idea, very funny! I loved all the nods to the typical vampire clichés.

The Danish Girl (2015) - Fascinating movie with several great actors! Alicia Vikander and Eddie Redmayne were so awesome in this one.

The Martian (2015) - I thought it was clever and funny, and I liked it a lot!

Also...well. I watched the whole Voltron: Legendary Defender show. Yep, every single episode. And I loved it! I may have found a new fandom. *g* I say "may have" because I haven't actually dipped my toes into the fandom yet, apart from looking for fanart. I've heard/read so many negative things about the ship war, and I'm not sure how I will perceive it, or how I will react.

I have cleaned up the header to make it understandable, but the story itself is untouched. Heh.
If you come across any particularly illegible bits I can try and interpret them for you, although I suspect we're all in the same boat when it comes to comprehending what I wrote. ;)

Spin the Wheel of Fornication!

Welcome to Daily Deviant's Wheel of Fornication! By now most of you are probably wondering what this is all about. So we're here to give you all the dirty details and get this thing rolling spinning!

We've spent the last couple of weeks collecting celebration-themed prompts and gluing them to our smutty spinner wheels. Now everyone gets to spin the wheels, get some surprise prompts, and use them to create porny pieces to celebrate Daily Deviant's birthday. You'll have a bit over two weeks to post your fic and art, then we'll have some quick polling to determine things like "best use of prompt" or "most monitor-melting celebration." At the end, we'll hand out some awards -- and the opportunity to choose a theme or two for the summer months.

The full details:

- Click the banner below to go to the spinner. The spinner is labeled only with numbers 1 through 12.
- Spin three times -- once for Wheel X, once for Wheel Y, and once for Wheel 69. (I.e. we have three separate prompt lists, each with somewhat different types of prompts.)
- Return to this post and leave a comment with your results. (You need only list the three numbers; we'll assume the first number is for the first wheel/list, the second number is for the second wheel/list, etc. Comments are screened to preserve the prompt surprises.)
- We'll reply to you ASAP and give you your prompts.
- Once a prompt has been taken, we'll remove it from the wheel and replace it with another from the list. So each time a number is chosen, the corresponding prompt will be different. If we run out of prompts, we'll start over from the top of the list.
- Pieces must be a minimum of 200 words (if fic) or a sketch equivalent (if art).
- If your fic is 500 words or less, you must only use one prompt. If it's over 500 words, you must use two prompts. For art, only one prompt is necessary.
- Since fills may be short, we're not going to be strictly policing the rating of each piece. Just remember this is Daily Deviant and we want to see some sex!
- Pieces are to be posted in comments to the main event post -- here. There are headers for your use included in the event post.
- After you've posted your piece, you're welcome to return to the wheel and spin for a new set of prompts. You then have the option of combining your new prompts with any old ones that you didn't use in your previous round or simply using the new ones.

And that's that!
