Add to Memories Tell a Friend

Summary: "We can't do this anymore." Draco whispered the words against Harry's chest. He didn't want to say them and his stomach clenched as he said them, but one of them had to say them, and Harry would never say them.
Word Count: 1981
Rating: PG-13
Contains: (Highlight to view) *I don't consider this infidelity and not between H/D, but some might, so consider yourself warned*

Signal boosting for both a handy 'enable to leave kudos on post' code and fandom migration meta.

Though I fervently hope Discord isn't going to become the main fandom hub for upcoming years - not that I mind chat, but at least with my current work and rl level I am never going to be able to keep up with it, nor does Discord lend itself easily to skimming the highlights when one has time, except in very quiet slow servers. I can barely keep up with our little fannish friendsgroup chat on Signal, and as much as I like the idea of getting know more like-minded fen, Discord is just not something my spoons will strtetch to rn. I guess Dw is going to be the main hub for me, with slowly dying Tumblr keeping it's slow fizzle on the background. AO3 I sincerely hope is going to live long and prosper. Pillowfort- we'll see. The networking/federated fandom stuff - who knows.

While I'm anticipating snow and being housebound tomorrow, I'm looking for....

any threesome or moresome that contains at least one male and one female

You can leave a snippet of a scenario if you like though I can't promise I'll use that part.

It won't post till near Valentine's Day so while a romantic pairing/group suggestion is lovely, it wouldn't have to be. (In fact, I do often like turning things on their heads--infidelity rather than HEA, mock or feigned romance in a dub-con or non-con type scenario, that sort of thing.)

It does have to be something I can make NC-17 regardless. :P

Last night I watched ID's The Deadliest Decade episode Don't Ask Don't Tell:

SEASON 1 • EPISODE 8

In 1992, Allen Schindler, a young American sailor, is beaten to death in Japan. Ten days later, his body returns home, with little information from the Navy. His mother goes on a desperate quest to learn who's behind her son's vicious murder.

42 min

Premiered 01/07/2019


I'm still thinking about the episode this morning and wondered whatever happened to the accomplice (the guy who lead the attack was sentenced to life in prison). So I googled and found this. I have no idea how accurate the listing is, although my hunch is that at least 50% of the information is correct. I base this on having looked up myself on mylife. It correctly lists when I was born, where I went to high school, three of the five cities where I lived (two are missing, not mislabeled). It correctly states I'm married. It is wrong about my nicknames, ethnicity, and religion. I don't like seeing myself on the web like this but I don't want to sign up and correct my listing as I am concerned that will give them even *more* information about me. I also have a feeling this is close to one of those blackmail-like websites, saying "give us money and we will remove your listing."

Even as my son will spend the morning trying to get an English essay he procrastinated on finished, I shall hopefully be getting my [community profile] daily_deviant entry polished up and posted.

I sat down immediately to write it last week but just didn't care for the vibe. Something was off with it so I started over. Always fun. I was only a few hundred words in so it wasn't bad but since I usually only write a few hundred words at a time LOL, I wasn't pleased about it.

Let's hope the porn Gods are smiling on me and whomever English students pray to is smiling down on him. ;)

Drabble Prompts?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So, the Fandom Snowflake challenge for today is to "create a fanwork." I, uh, can't just up and create something very fast right now. Unless it's a drabble/tiny ficlet maybe? Maybe??

Well, I might be able to come up with a tiny thing or two this weekend... if some of you could offer up some quick prompts? A character or pairing; a word, phrase, image, simple scenario, idea...

Especially those of you who are familiar with Tin Man! I'd LOVE a Tin Man prompt or two right now.

I can't guarantee that I'll manage to pull anything off, but I'll give it a shot... It's time to knock some rust off the writing gears!

Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 5

Add to Memories Tell a Friend


(For the record, I did Day 4. It just didn't need to be posted about here.)

Day 5:

In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them.


This is actually ridiculously difficult for me since I've been out of things for so long. I could go on for hours about all the comms and fests and such that I used to love, but nearly all of them went dormant ages ago. So it looks like I'm going to default to raving about [info]daily_deviant again.

I love this comm from the very depths of my filthy, fannish heart. It's the one thing I never let go of, even when I could barely keep a toe dipped into the fandom pool. I'm just so damned proud of the fantastic, inspired pieces our authors and artists manage to produce based on nothing more than a list of kinks or a simple theme from month to month. The best of the best are writing smut, and they're doing it with style, y'all!

On a personal level, I've been able to meet and interact with an astounding number of amazing, brilliant people over the years because of d_d. In person as well as online! Some of my favorite fandom memories are the erotic fic reading events we put together, particularly the one at Diacon Alley... and we had some pretty epic meet-ups at a few cons, too. (Pass the gummy boobies, and is anyone up for a game of cock ring toss??)

We're about to celebrate our thirteenth birthday, and WE'RE STILL GOING! We just got ELEVEN new members on board, and at least two or three long-time members who haven't posted much in a while are planning to make a comeback. So if you haven't been paying much attention to d_d lately, it's a good time to start again!

Daily Deviant, of course, is on InsaneJournal, which will be my second promotion here. Not too much seems to happen on IJ these days; most people ended up going to DW or sticking with LJ in the end. Nonetheless, IJ is still where I feel most at home. If anyone doesn't have an IJ and would like to start one (in order to keep up with d_d, especially!), let me know. I have some invite codes to spare, and can create additional ones each month.

The third promotion... is coming in the near future. Stay tuned. ;)

Hot Art:

From [info]hd_erised:
The Double Closet by anokaba (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; M)
Summary:It’s a constant coming out. Getting bruised on both sides. Feeling invisible without the cloak.
Recced by gracerene09, writcraft, and nerakrose.
A Very Blorpy Christmas by pukingpastilles (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; T)
Summary:Harry gets stuck doing Christmas decorations with Draco.
Recced by o0o-chibaken-o0o, nerakrose, and satans-substitute.

From [info]hoggywartyxmas:
Slumming with the Staff by mywitch (Multiple characters, Rated G through E)
Summary: It's Christmas week 1992 and Gilderoy Lockhart was easily coaxed to share with us his journal. I've included some drawings as well, to clarify things.
Recced by Squibstress, pyttan, and kellychambliss.
The Neville Sweater by Cabepfir (Neville Longbottom, G)
Summary: Neville receives his first Weasley sweater. You decide which Weasley is the sender.
Recced by kellychambliss and sigune.
The Final Year of the War by jodel_from_aol (Multiple Hogwarts Professors and students, G)
Summary: Title says it all.
Recced by kellychambliss and sigune.


Hot Rec:

From [info]hd_erised:
with exactness grinds he all by thistle-verse (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; E, 6,300 words)
Summary:Harry has known the forest, and now he knows Draco.
Recced by gracerene09, magpiefngrl, and phd-mama.
Sex and the Art of Castle Maintenance by birdsofshore (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; E, 15,000 words)
Summary:"Come on, boys," Zabini drawled. "You’re only delaying the inevitable." Trouble always had a way of finding Harry, and eighth year was obviously going to be no exception.
Recced by bixgirl1, o0o-chibaken-o0o, and pukingpastilles.
Star Quality by who_la_hoop (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; E, 118,000 words)
Summary:Two years after the war, and Harry’s content with his life. OK, so it’s a little annoying that he keeps winning Witch Weekly’s Most Eligible Bachelor award, and he’s not looking forward to the unveiling of an enormous gold statue of himself, but he loves his friends, and he loves being an Auror. And if he yearns for something more, something he can barely bring himself to think about, well, he’ll probably get over it. No one’s happy all the time, are they? But then everything changes, and Harry’s thrown into a new and dazzling world he’s not sure he can actually escape from. And as time goes on, he starts to wonder: does he actually want to?
Recced by gracerene09, anemonen, and whiskyandwildflowers.
The Paradox of Active Surrender by korlaena (Fic) and saulaie (Art) (Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy; E, 107,000 words)
Summary:When Draco shows up as a suspect in a murder case after eight years of no contact, Harry has to balance his professional life and his past friendship with Draco. As suspicion mounts against him, Harry knows he has to keep his distance, but Draco makes that difficult when he starts claiming that they have a Life Debt to settle. Harry wants to trust him, but what is he hiding and where has he been these long years?
Recced by gracerene09, lower-east-side, and candawrites.

From [info]hoggywartyxmas:
Haeligeweille by redsnake05 (Argus Filch, Mrs Norris, T, 8050 words)
Summary: When two Unspeakables set out on a bright summer day to continue their arcane research into holy wells, no one, least of all Argus Filch and Evadne Norris, expects it to end as it does. The bitterness of life without magic is pervasive, corrosive, and there is little light to find their way. One day, though, they'll walk that sunny path again.
Recced by lash-larue, Squibstress, alisanne, and minervas-eule.
Do Badgers Dream of Chocolate Hobnobs? by gingertart50 (Multiple Hogwarts Staff and students, G, 5500 words)
Summary: Pomona Sprout decided that Albus Dumbledore had his own agenda and there might be more to the Potions Master than met the eye; or, what happens when people underestimate a badger.
Recced by minervas-eule, pyttan, christev, and sigune.
Filius Flitwick’s Christmas by Therealsnape (Multiple characters, PG, 13,000 words)
Summary: Right,” said Kingsley Shacklebolt, as Minerva and he sat in her study, now fully cleared of the dinner things. “There’s the five of you, there’s the House Elves, there’s Argus Filch. And there’s one hell of a mess, with a spoiled painting. This wants clearing up."
Recced by milotzi, kellychambliss, and sigune.
Tower Dwellers by Purplefluffycat (Aurora Sinistra, Sybill Trelawney, PG, 3400 words)
Summary: On Christmas Eve, Aurora takes in the universe, and the neighbouring turret. Which is further away?
Recced by minervas-eule and kellychambliss.

2019 Fest Schedule at Snape_Potter

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Happy birthday, Severus Snape!!! What better way to celebrate our favourite Potions Master's birthday than with the announcement of our fest schedule for the year! ;)

We will be hosting two fests at [info]snape_potter this year: our annual 'anything goes' classic, Snarry-a-Thon, and our winter fest, Secret Snarry Swap, in December.

For those who like to work from wide open prompts, there is Snarry-a-Thon19 and for those who like to warm up with Snarry during the busy end of the year holidays, there is Secret Snarry Swap.

Our 11th annual Snarry-a-Thon is a prompt-based, anything goes fest that will begin posting May 1st.

December's Secret Snarry Swap will close out the year, with details to come closer to sign-ups in August/September.
