MY FRIENDING POLICY: I friend everyone, so don't worry about commenting or whatnot. Just friend me and I will friend you back! And welcome! (I only unfriend people who make HUGE LONG posts without an LJ-cut, so if you're new, please learn what that is and how to use it.)
If you're new here, you might want to check out the H/D FANDOM - AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE to get started!
*sigh* At least it's wordstuff, right? Oh well, I know this one is WAAAAAAAY overdue. It also hasn't been even vaguely beta'ed, so please to be pointing out all inconsistencies and errors. *deputizes all of you as betas* BWAHAHAHA
Also, THANK YOU to everyone that game me lovely virtual cookies at Halloween! *snuggles you all* I forgot to mention that previously. I love my v-gifts. :D Anyway, ON TO THE FICCAGE.
( A Not-So-Secret Pastime )
Yeah, this will need to be continued. *cough*
This has now become a list.
DYSON'S GIFT LIST
LOOK HOW SPARSE MY LIST IS! I NEED MORE THINGS! So, if you are an author, artist, crafter, or other person with something to sell *snicker* comment here and I'll add you to the list!!! I'll turn it into a sortable document for easy gift-searching. These items do not have to be fandom-related. Leave me a link where people can buy your stuff and a description.
DON'T BE SHY. PIMP YOURSELF. (AND PIMP YOUR FRIENDS.)
*comments are screened for the humble and also because I am adding some of you whether you like it or not*
Author: Autumn LeCroix
Warnings: This will make you like letter-fics
Alternate Link: There are no alternate links. D: D: D: Her ff.net and Skyhawke are both gone, so this is a case of GRAB AND SAVE THIS FIC BEFORE IT DISAPPEARS FOREVER.
Summary: Draco is 30, living in Edinburgh. Through a series of letters written back and forth between himself and his favorite author, Draco learns more about life than he thought possible and ends up forging an unexpected relationship.
This fic is a reader's delight. I adore the way Draco is utterly in love with his BOOK to the point of knowing it backwards, forwards, and sideways. And also how he falls half in love with the author before he discovers he already knows him quite well. *beams*
GO SIGN UP NOW! :D :D :D :D
Also, hd_holidays submissions are due SOMETIME THIS MONTH. *cough* Just sayin'.
Note to self: Stop posting at 4am. Drink moar coffee.
ANYWAY, I shall set aside my self-love for one moment in order to give you another rec, in case you haven't read this 500 times already. THIS WOMAN NEEDS TO WRITE MORE THINGS, OMFG. She usually tortures me with horrific levels of angst, but this fic is pure gorgeousness and she reined in her tendency to torture the boys. I LOVE IT AND YOU WILL, TOO.
Title: He Was He and I Was Bunny
Words: 37,000 ish
Warnings: Epic levels of CUTE.
Alternate Link: http://www.thehexfiles.net/viewstory.ph
ON TO IMPORTANT MATTERS THAT MATTER. Like hd_fan_fair. GET OVER THERE AND START READING AND GIVE LOVESPLOSIONS TO THE AMAZING ARTISTS. The art posted already is !!!!! I haven't read the fics yet BUT I TOTALLY WILL.
IMPORTANT THING THE SECOND: THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some of my co-conspirators and I had the brilliant idea of having an Secret Santa Exchange. The idea is that anyone who wants to participate will throw their name in the pool. I will randomly sort them out and hand out names, so each person will create one item for their giftee. Here's the awesome part: IT CAN BE ANYTHING AT ALL! Fics, art, handmade crafts, food items, bracelets, smelling-good stuff, stick-figure drawings, ornaments, regional tourist items, postcards, etc. It will be multi-fandom or no fandom, so don't feel left out if you're a lurking person who stumbled on this journal by accident. :D I'll be collecting the signup info at hd_seasons, so if you're not following that comm, DO IT NOW. Addresses will be given only to your gifter, but if you're super-paranoid you can request only online items. I'll probably keep it open until October 15th or so to give people time to make and mail stuff.
There are MORE THINGS I need to blather about, but if I don't post this now it will be another week before I get to it.
*flails a lot*
Go give our boys some love and show them that H/D will not go quietly. *waves H/D forever banner*
EDIT: She took the fic down and deleted all the comments calling her out on her profile, but she's still active there so I'll be reporting her and keeping a CLOSE eye on her activities. Her page: http://www.wattpad.com/user/MissBlue336
The ORIGINAL cover banner art is so awesome I need to post it. ISN'T IT PRETTY?
But I digress. If you have an account at wattpad, would you mind report Miss Stealy McStealerpants? Thanks! I made screencaps to take it to stop_plagiarism. Luckily, she didn't seem to have any other stories there. For the curious, I originally posted this fic AS I WROTE IT, OMG, beginning in November 2006 when I was a fanfic noob. *wipes nostalgic tear* Linky: http://www.fictionalley.org/authors/cher
ALSO, THERE ARE NOT MANY DAYS UNTIL THE AWESOME WEDDING OF saras_girl!!!!!
There is still time to submit stories, art, and well wishes at the SEKRIT wedding comm here: wedding_eels
GO THERE NOW! DO EEEEET!!!! Also, hi! I miss you guys! I don't ship anyone on Teen Wolf. <--- lie of the decade
Words: 3,000 ish
Warnings: You might need some cold water for this one. Or a towel. XD
Alternate Link: no alternates known
Why I like it: It's short, so I can read it over and over again, which I have. I also love the boys all grown-up and GUUUUH Professor Draco. Also, Harry is... *incoherent flailing* Yes.
Note: Since I can barely keep track of what I've recced already, I made a handy-dandy spreadsheet. I think it's sortable.
Dyson's Fic Recs
And since some of them might seem crazy, I think it's only fitting to post them HERE. So I have. Feel free to comment, suggest, brainstorm, flail, or all things in between.
Also, since one of the suggestions was having more meetups, etc, I am now pimping anyone and everyone's fandom meetups whenever they are suggested.
writcraft is hoping to plan two meetups, one in London and one in New York. Details are HERE at her journal - it seems to be friend-locked, so if you have questions you can ask them here and she can point you to the correct place for discussion. Feel free to also post your ideas and/or meetup suggestions at the Insaners community. I think I got the posting permissions set to open. *crosses finger* I think phoenixacid is awake if there are technical difficulties.
*YAWNS* I hate to post and SLEEP, but 4am is going to come bloody early tomorrow. Off to bed!
So, lubricus was amazing and now we can all go back to our regular lives with ALL THE SAD. I know some of you reading this have never been to a convention or a fandom meetup and all I can tell you is that if you ever have the opportunity, you should DO IT. There is something so incredible about hanging out with people who "get" you and this wonderful, bizarre, outwardly-strange world of fandom that we inhabit. There is nothing quite like dropping your usual cautious filters and blurting out things you might never dare say in your day-to-day life. (I say might because some of us are "filters, what filters?") There is something indescribable about laughing until you hurt, talking about writing and art and fandom, discussing the strange juxtaposition of jobs, significant others, children, and whatever drives us to fandom and sticks some of us there like glue. There is nothing like putting a name to a face, and to making connections where you never expected to make them.
( A whole herd of teal deer here... )
I miss you guys. :(
Title: A Reckless Frame of Mind (and sequel!)
Rating: R (sequel is NC-17)
Warnings: Suicidal behaviour (with a purpose)
Alternate Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3682349/1/A_
Be warned that you cannot read this without reading the sequel, A Determined Frame of Mind, found here:
or here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3759027/1/A_
(That one is 100k, so prepare for some time investment. IT'S WORTH IT.)
Why I love this: I have such a THING for original magic and interesting, complex, or amazing spells and this one is a fucking doozy. Even Hermione can't help because the spell itself keeps her from accepting that it's a spell. (I have to admit I was forced to do a bit of "suspension of disbelief" there, because my personal head-canon would not allow Hermione to remain clueless about the spell for so long - she would never have been able to accept Harry's abrupt personality change, but since it was necessary for the progression of the fic, I had to go with it.) Considering the sheer size and depth of this story, it's a miniscule thing to whinge about.
On to the amazingness. DRACO. *ALL THE HEARTS* He is so very Draco at the beginning of this, utterly self-serving and determined to finally have something he can hold over Harry Potter. And then there is HARRY. *happy sigh* Harry's desperation and is heart-wrenching, as is his near-brokenness that is so close to being complete. Both of them are so incredibly strong - in completely different ways - that this fic pretty much defines why I love this pairing so much. Harry is light and life and courage and pressing ahead despite all the odds, while Draco is subtlety and nuance and the unscrupulous utilisation of every possible advantage, yet with just as much determination as Harry possesses. They complement each other so perfectly in this fic, I can't even. I just love this story, okay?
Many thanks to moonflower_rose for sending me some goodies whilst lounging around in Vegas, SO MUCH LOVE to saras_girl for the JAFFA CAKES (yes, there are some left, shocking, I know!) and piles of other amazing things of amazingness, and to adorable Deanne in Hawaii for the CUTE card and lovely message.
What else? I know there are other things, but my brain is like mushy wet toast right now. Um... I'm getting ready for lubricus next month!!!!! Can't wait to tacklehug everyone there!!!!
Here, have a silly ficlet. :D I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUUUUUUUCH!!!! *twirls entires f-list*
( Street Fair ).
Now, on to THINGS. So many things. Let's see, what is first? SMOOCHFEST REVEALS GO UP TODAY! As soon as I do this post and then do a couple (dozen) other vital things, LOL! BUT SOON! I had cheesecake for breakfast, so that VERY VITAL THING is already done. Cheesecake has priority. (I think I'll put that on a shirt.) :D
Um, next. I have been writing, although a lot of it hasn't been fic related. *hides* I wrote an original story for a Goodreads fest thingy that was fun. I couldn't resist the tied-up guy in the photo prompt, okay? LOL! I posted it on my Dreamwidth account, for anyone curious. It's 17k, so not huge, but not quite tiny. Linky: HIDING MARIAH.
Oh and the second book of my original novel is FINALLY FREAKING DONE AND PUBLISHED AND OUT OF MY HANDS OMG. That was quite stressful and only the massive levels of support from certain friends of mine kept me from having an epic meltdown. Especially arineat, who basically pulled my figurative testicles out of the blazing fire at the last possible moment. LOVE YOU, RINNY!!! And also, twasadark, who got to deal with many frantic text messages at ridiculous o'clock whilst on vacation. Also to faithwood for the beta. *squishes* ANYWAY, with that said, I now have a website and a book and second book and it's on Amazon and Smashwords and all over the damn place. *falls over* All I have to do now is write the third book. *cries a little*
Also, I wrote a tiny fluff ficlet I wrote for a Facebook group I joined. Who knew Facebook would have active fandom groups? I still mostly use Facebook for SIMS, though, because addicting much??? *may or may not have spent many hours building beds for virtual boys to have sex on* #noregrets I'll post the ficlet in another post because LJ is being a whore and not letting me add it here. *sigh*
WHAT ELSE? Glompfest is on over at serpentinelion and there have been many works of awesome posted! H/D Career Fair is coming, but you know that, along with H/D Artfest over at hd_fanart! WOOT! Can't wait for that. COME BACK FROM AVENGERS AND MERLIN, LOVELY ARTISTS! *tempts with cheesecake*
Oh and speaking of other fandoms! Rinny made a Multi-fandom love meme!! Come give LOVE to everyone you know!
THIS IS ALL FOR NOW, ALTHOUGH I AM SURE I WILL THINK OF SIX MORE THINGS THE MINUTE I HIT THE POST BUTTON. Happy Friday the 13th everyone!!!! :D
