FIC: To Ignite [Harry/Draco, NC-17]

Well, hai there. As many of you already know, the [info]hd_holidays masterlist is up.

I want to thank [info]_pinkchocolate for the fic she wrote for me, entitled Out from Under. I recced it here if you want more details about why I enjoyed it so much. :D [info]_pinkchocolate, I know you've been through hell with my fic, and I wanted to apologize for all the strife, but thank you so much. :) It was brilliant.

As for my fic...it's an interesting story. I didn't know [info]okydoky much, but while putting the finishing touches on my fic, she emailed me about beta-ing a fic of hers for [info]hp_yule_balls (I think?), and I thought it the greatest coincidence. I'm happy she's now on my flist. ♥

So, anyway, I wrote To Ignite, originally posted here.

Thank you so much to [info]tomatoe18 for the really nice review she left here. I've been neglecting my flist recently, so I might've missed another review or rec. So please point them out if I overlooked something.

And just a note. I know the warning says 'angst', but there is an H/D hopeful ending, I swear. :D (And in my mind, it is H/D!)

Author: [info]bewarethesmirk
Title: To Ignite
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria, mentions of Ron/Hermione, Lily/random Hufflepuff, and very small bit of AS/S.
Summary: Each moment was a slice of heaven, and it was simultaneously hell, because he knew at the end of the hour – or sometimes two hours – Malfoy would go home to Astoria, and Harry to Ginny.
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): Infidelity, epilogue-compliant, pining!Harry. There’s angst, but the ending isn't explicitly angsty. There’s desperate sex, with a dash of rimming and a spot of dirty talk.
Word Count: ~8,000K
Author's Notes: Written for [info]okydoky. Thank to the mods for another great fest. Thanks to [info]lavillanueva for her never-ending support. And to [info]rebekahfair and [info]sesheta_66, I couldn't have done this without your beta expertise. :D

FIC: Worth Keeping [Snape/Luna, NC-17]

Hi, everyone! *waves* I just returned from my long holiday trip tonight and I'm scurrying to get caught up on, well, life in general - and that obviously includes a perhaps unhealthy amount of fandom involvement, as well. ;-) I need to make a huge post, but that'll probably come tomorrow since I need to go to bed tonight before, uh, 3:00am. You know, early.

I'm doing this now, though, so I don't forget.

The [info]smutty_claus masterlist was posted. *cringes* I've been so out of sorts I haven't yet read my fic, which I'm sure is brilliant. One of my first priorities is to read it... The fic written for me was Jouissance by [info]i_octopus. It's Draco/Rose. Summary: Draco, in atoning for the sins of his past, has lived a life of duty without passion. His life has been a good performance until he meets Rose. This is the story of their fatal, erotic obsession.

The fic I wrote, Worth Keeping, was originally posted here.

And, reposting it here:

Title: Worth Keeping
Author/Artist: [info]bewarethesmirk
Pairing(s): Snape/Luna
Summary: Snape had gone to the Squealing Pig for some peace and quiet, and instead he got Luna Lovegood in a fluffy scarf.
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Snape’s drunk, so the consent is murky at first – but it makes more sense in context.
Words: ~3000
Author/Artist's notes: Written for [info]damned_queen in the 2008 round of [info]smutty_claus. Thanks to [info]lavillanueva for beta-ing and to [info]rospberry for Brit-picking and beta-ing!

OMG FIC FOR ME and chatting

Oh, I love [info]hp_cross_fest. I've just been amazed at the quality of the fic in this fest. I still have quite a lot to read (which is by no means a negative!) so I can't make too many recs, but in case you are interested in reading more, you should check out [info]marguerite_26's crossfest recs.

I'm particularly in love with my gift that was just posted! Consider this a very squee-y rec of:

Almost Lover (Draco/James, NC-17, ~2,200 words)
Summary: James’ fantasy becomes reality, but for how long?
Warning: Adultery

The most remarkable thing is the writing. The writing is absolutely lovely. Everything about this piece is rich and complex--the emotions, the relationship and events surrounding it, and the sex itself. Very graphic sex and powerful. This is one of those rare cases when 2,200 words feels like 22,000. So much detail and imagery and emotion. Gah.

So, yes, go read and leave love.

***

Next off, chatting! I'm changing my Y!M name to the ever-appropriate 'bewarethesmirk', so feel free to add me! I'm 'snarkyissexxy' on AIM. I need more chatting buddies, so c'mon.

At long last, a fic accomplishment!

Who knew that the first real novella I've written, and of which I'd actually be proud is Snape/Draco? All 22,000 words of it. :D I've always known I work better in in novella-length or longer. I was writing a long-overdue email to [info]inkandfakefurs about this tonight. I usually think of a word count in terms of hurdles. I'm a procrastinator and I'm lazy, so the fact I want to write longer fics generally doesn't work out well at all. I become frustrated or get distracted by going on a fic-reading spree. This time, for some reason, I stuck with it. That's due in large part to [info]lavillanueva's helpful advice and keeping my characters in line. Who knows? The fic might suck. It's being betaed now, but either way, I really enjoyed it. What's worse? It very well might have a sequel.

I know, I know. 22,000 words is absolutely nothing, but for me it's a bit incredible. ^_^

So, now, that's down (barring editing for spag errors and whatever else the betaing turns up), [info]hp_darkfest is next. I have a prompt but no ideas whatsoever. This one cannot go above 4,000K. Following that, I start my Incredibly Long and Complex [info]hd_holidays fic. Then around the bend is [info]smutty_claus. I've also got to do [info]rospberry's [info]livelongnmarry fic, in which I must delve into Buffy-verse for the first time--writing, at least.

This weekend was fabulous for the writing and relaxing. I hung out with [info]lesyeuxverts00 quite a lot. :D Tonight I had dinner with a bunch of marvelous people. :D It was a fabulous time. Hello to some of the new people on my flist. ♥

I'm reading [info]hp_cross_fest fics tonight and hopefully starting [info]hp_darkfest. Tomorrow I'm temping for the full day. Yay money.

On a squeeful note, here's beautiful H/D art from [info]hd_fanart:

FIC: Good Fortune Comes to Those Who Get Their Hands Dirty [Remus/Hermione, NC-17]

The [info]hp_summersmut masterlist is up! I served as a pinch-hitter, and wrote Good Fortune for Those Who Get Their Hands Dirty (Remus/Hermione) for [info]ellaselenelupin. I received a gorgeous piece of art from [info]ghot (who posts fabulous stuff for [info]daily_deviant!). Check out my gift: Edge (Snape/Lupin, NWS/NC-17).

And I'll post my fic here. :)

Title: Good Fortune Comes to Those Who Get Their Hands Dirty
Author: [info]bewarethesmirk
Pairing: Remus/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,493
Warnings: Bathroom sex, semi-DH compliant (Remus lived and he raises Teddy), bit of dirty talk
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Summary: Remus has avoided romance and sex since the Battle of Hogwarts, up until the time Hermione and he began working together. Remus is oblivious and desperate. Hermione wants to unwind after a long week at work—and perhaps, just perhaps, more.
Author's Notes: Written for [info]ellaselenelupin as a pinch-hit in [info]hp_summersmut. Thanks to [info]rebekahfair for the beta!

Back in...Blue. A few updates.

I wanted to begin by thanking so many of you for the outpouring of support I received about the situation with my dad. I decided to go to New York to see him. I figured there was a lot more to lose if I didn't go. The situation--the one, you know, that my relatives were negligent in telling me--was that he had had a heart attack and had an open heart surgery. He was out cold when I went to visit. I stayed for around two hours and sat there, writing a letter while I watched him sleep. I wonder how my letter will be received. I wonder if I'll know if he even bothered to read it or not. I met his wife for the first time, which was interesting to say the least. But, I did my part, stayed two hours and left my letter. I came back to Boston the next day, feeling satisfied I'd done all I could. My dad's surgery went well, and they think he'll make a full recovery. The family members I did see while there were not not very receptive--doing everything from cursing at me to ignoring me--so I ignored them and stayed at a hotel that night, declining the invitation to stay at my aunt's house.

I went to a job interview today--the one at GLAD. One of the guys was a complete asshole, but I think I did all right. They kept fishing for answers and seemed to be frustrated that I wasn't an idiot. There's another round of interviews next week, and so we'll see if I'm called back for that. I'm still looking for other options

I'm filling out my sign-up for [info]smutty_claus and I realized I haven't read het in so long I don't know what pairings I like. I've settled on Snape/Lily so far. :P I'll go see what the other participants have requested for inspiration! *giggles at [info]snegurochka_lee's length--er, lengthy sign-up*

I need to be writing my very late contribution to a fest that I'm not sure if they'll accept at this point. *sigh*

By the way, if any of you want to be on my political rants or music filters, go here! I feel a political rant coming on...

*waves to the new friends on my flist*
