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.

because of crazy life and crazy work schedule, i managed to watch gossip girl last night, though not glee. hoping to watch glee soon - but i might place catching up with the rest of spn season 5 above watching glee. i like glee, but i like spn way more.

i wasn't going to talk about gg, but i can't help myself.

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.

Today was my 25th birthday!

Which I am quite pleased about. :D

I was blown away by the number of birthday wishes I got today! It means so much to me. I'm celebrating this Saturday by going to a French restaurant with friends and to some bars afterward. Tonight I'm drinking some nice bubbly and watching Buffy.

Thanks so much to [personal profile] melusinahp for the sweet vgift. :D

And thank you so, so much to all the people who sent PMs, emails, texts, tweets, etc. :)

HP femslash recs

First off: thanks so much to the lovely [personal profile] nuclearsugars and [profile] ziasudra_fic for the virtual gifts. What's the special occasion? :)

I wrote a pinch-hit for [community profile] femmefest so I got an extra gift: Can't Wait for the Weekend (PG). It's a pairing I've never considered, Penelope Clearwater/Tonks, but I love it. :D It's a workplace!fic, which is one of my favorite settings. Penelope's crush is so cute and well-observed, as well as the tension. And Tonks is just sexy.

Control Yourself (Take Only What You Need) by Anon. Ginny/Luna, Ginny/Pansy (one sided Ginny/Fleur and Ginny/Hermione, and background Harry/Ginny)
It has been a long time since anyone asked Ginny Weasley what she wanted.
Comments: Beautiful characterizations, wonderful writing and a very realistic portrayal of Ginny Weasley finding herself. I love her like this, and I somehow liked every pairing as the author portrayed them. The sex is blistering hot with great, innovative turns of phrase.

A Fonder Heart by [profile] eudaimon (Pansy/Luna, R)
Pansy and Luna in Hogwarts in the days immediately following the end of the war. The castle remembers. The castle protects its heart.
Comments: My new omgyes femslash pairing. I love this fic so much. A great whimsical tone and evocative language.

Apr. 26th, 2010

My [community profile] femmefest fic was posted - it's Hermione/Pansy with a workplace romance, tension & sex: (Not So) Righteous (NC-17, infidelity). It's so pleasant to receive gifts. :D

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.”

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



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


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

The beginning of more thank-yous to come

I finally got the opportunity to check my mail yesterday when I went back up to Chapel Hill to get a lawyer to take care of my traffic ticket. Thank you so much to everyone who sent me cards. I'm going to list everyone's name here later when I gather all the cards together. And thanks to [info]chiralove for the wonderful chocolate and breakfast tea and to [info]rospberry for more chocolate and a little Snape! :D
