Fic babble

Have just finished updating my fic-list for the month and year, so I thought I should do the usual year-end roundup.

I only managed one fic this month, as I have been focusing more on RP than anything else online, but because of the holidays, not even enough of that.  Hopefully now that they're over, I can get back into the swing of things.

A note to those who have me friended that I have not friended back - I will not friend if you are underage or have no age-statement, and I don't check things as often as I used to because of other obligations.  If you are of age, please leave me a post here (or elsewhere) stating that you are, and I will friend you back.  I f-lock anything NC-17 related in this journal, though if you don't wish to friend me for whatever reason, I also post all my fics elsewhere. 
My [info]daily_deviant fics (the ones I always post on the 13th of each month) are all avaliable at that community, tagged with my name, so they are easy to access.
I also post all my [info]50_smutlet pieces at that community each time I post.
Beyond that, I tend to post to a community for the character(s) most involved in the story, the ship involved in the story, and if appropriate, [info]hpslash.

So, on to my fic stats for the year:
Stats )

You know, I used to look at [info]inell's numbers and wonder how she did it... No wonder life's been insane this year.

First sentance meme

Stolen from [info]florahart because I like this idea much better than the alternate. :D

An early line from the first (nondrabble) fic posted each month--in my own LJ or mine pointed at elsewhere, at a quick perusal. Not that I think anyone needs pointing at any more fic this month; I just figure you don't want to see the first lines of my nonfic posts.

And while I'm at it, just for my own curiosity:
Fic stats )

And threshholds I crossed this year: I did my first threesome fics, my first femmeslash, and my first Snucious.

Another Meme

Name your ten favourite titles from stories you've written:

  1. Precious Silver - because it says so many things about the character it refers to
  2. True Revenge - because it worked with the ending of the fic so well
  3. Dragon's Tears - dispite the fact that it never quite showed in the story, the underlying theme of what was going on worked so well with crocodile tears...So what better than to transfer it to the creature the main character was named for?
  4. Finding Harry - while the title hasn't quite paid off yet, I like the idea it represents in an AU where Harry doesn't even know who he is.
  5. Drawing the Circle - I had no idea what I would call this piece until I found the poem I used for the title.  It just fit the story so well.
  6. Please, Not a Ferret - it says so much, and yet so little about the story itself. ;)
  7. Snapshots - because even though it says very little about the story, it's illustrative of the story over all.
  8. George's Little Secret - makes me giggle.
  9. In One Blow - because at the beginning of the fic, it means one thing, and at the end, it means something else entirely.  
  10. Secrets Kept - Liked it so much I practically used the same title twice.  But I think it works better in this story than Secrets Worth Keeping.


Wow.  Didn't think I could do it... :)

ETA: Oh, and seven out of those ten? Draco-fics... ;P

Ooooh, memeage

A meme, gacked from </a></a>[info]rurounihime:</b>

Take three to five of your very own H/D fics and give me the Draco and Harry that appear in each. Link to the fic itself if you like, but really, I want to see how everyone manifests the boys differently. This is a chance to pimp your stuff! DOOOO EEET!!! [if you don't feel like H/D, feel free to go with a different pairing as well! I'm easy. :D]

1> Snapshots has clueless&PO'd!Draco and caretaker!Harry.

2> Draco's Draught has girl!Draco and overprotective&lustful!Harry

3> A Second Chance has PO'd!Draco and concilatory!Harry

4> Waiting has depressed&horny!Draco and clueless!Harry

5> Alone has horny&bored!Draco and angry&dark!Harry


Hmmm....  looks like almost all my Harrys are the same, generally.  Well, I guess my Dracos play mostly the same tune as well.

Questions for my HP friends

So, I find myself curious about my HP friends out there.  Specifically those of you who read and/or write HP fanfic.  I just have a few questions, you don't have to answer, but I'd love to get to know you all better.

1 - Favorite HP character
2 - Favorite Canon ship (by this, I mean any ship that has at least one of the couple thinking about the other in this way.  So, to me, Neville/Ginny is canon, cause he took her to the Yule ball, as is Ron/Luna, because she obvously likes him, but Severus/Lily is not, because there is no canon proof)
3 - Favorite non-canon het ship
4 - Favorite slash ship
5 - Favorite (or at least a favorite) fic in the fandom, and why (links would be nice, too. :D)
6 - Favorite fic that you have written.

for me the answers are:

1 - Draco.  Far and away, for some reason, though after him comes Snape, then Lupin, and then distantly, Sirius.
2 - I suppose, given my rules, I'd have to say Neville/Ginny, even though I know they'll never end up together. :)
3 - Draco/Hermione.
4 - Draco/Harry, followed by Snape/Sirius and Snape/Remus. :)  I'm a slasher at heart.
5 - Currently, I would have to say Blood Magic by GatewayGirl.  She kept me on the edge of my seat for 80+ chapters!  I never got bored with this fic.  I was always excited when I saw new chapters go up.
6 -
Snapshots - one of the easiest to write plots I have ever come up with.  Which is not to say it was easy to write, simply that I had it all in my head before I ever got it on paper.  Usually I have a much more murky idea of how the plot will work out.  This one just...flowed. :)

Look forward to hearing all your answers!

News

Let's see...

A fond farewell to yet another piece of my childhood.  Christopher Reeve was one of my earliest idols.  I'm pleased that he was able to survive as long as he did after his accident.  I'm sure the work he did furthered spinal cord health a great deal.  He will be missed.

^*^

Went out to lunch with a good friend today...Hi Anne! :D  She requested a list of my "safe" fics.  So, here is a list of all my non-slash, not too hot-and-heavy fics:
  • True Revenge  -  Detailing the marriage of Narcissa Black to Lucius Malfoy.  *warning: not a nice fic*
  • Lost Love  -  Some very slight slash here (a kiss), but the main pairing in this is Ron/Hermione, and it's post-Hogwarts.  Ron disappears the last week of their seventh year of Hogwarts.  How does Hermione deal with it, and will she forgive him when he returns?
  • Fred's Worst Day  -  George isn't speaking to Fred.  How can Fred fix it?
  • Dragon's Tears  - The fourth Part in the True Revenge saga (Parts two and three can be found at Foodie's FF.net account)  Draco decides to take revenge on his father for deserting him and his mother. *warning: not a nice fic*
  • Letters  -  A follow-up to Dragon's Tears.  Draco finally reads the letters his father sent to him the last few years he was at Hogwarts. 
  • Green Eyes  -  James and Lily are called to Hogwarts to talk to the newest Order member.
  • Secrets Kept  -  Lily is certain her boyfriend is being blackmailed by the rest of the Marauders.
  • Flowers and Notes  -  Neville decides it's time to let Ginny know how he feels.  Can be seen as a prequel to Lost Love
  • Please, Not a Ferret  -  Draco decides to become an animagus.
  • Dear Sirius  -  Hermione convinces Harry to write a letter to Sirius.
  • Mae Govannan Severus Snape  -  Snape is required to attend a masquerade.  Dumbledore sends him a costume to wear.
  • Finding Harry  -  My epic.  What if Harry had been raised not by the Dursleys, but by a wizarding family, and someone that Dumbldore would never have approved of?
Whew.  That's it, I think.  Well, of the finished pieces... :D  The links are all to FF.net, though many of the smaller pieces are avaliable at my lj as well. 

If anyone's interested, I can provide pairings for each, but most of the stories are rather self-explanitory, and some are purposfully vague in discription cause I want you to guess. :D

^*^

In other news, today my hubby and I have been married for twelve years.  We got some very simple bands the first time through, but after twelve years, I decided I deserved something special, so we got me a ring today.  It's white gold, and the stone is an amethyst.  I have to wait a few months for it, but it's worth it. :D

Draco

So, anyone who's read more than one of my fics on FF.net knows I mainly do Draco.  He always seems to be my default character.  Aside from my latest craze of doing het ficklets, most of my fics have Draco in them somewhere, and most often as one of the main characters.

I was thinking just now how different they are.
I have slash Draco and straight Draco, though I tend to slash him more often then not.  I actually quite enjoy doing Draco fics in first person, too, though I haven't done any lately.  I am working on a sequel to Snapshots, but it's not coming along too well, so....

Draco's Draught - First person, first HP fic I ever did, and it shows.  H/D.  Kinda whiny, wimpy Draco, really.

Drawing the Circle - Third person, oneshot.  Clueless!Draco.  Fun to do, but nothing exciting.  Again, H/D

Snapshots - First person again, another H/D.  My favorite of my H/D fics.  I've been told it's not unlike 50 First Dates (Which I don't exactly consider a complement, since I'm not particularly fond of Adam Sandler, and the movie looked reduculous.)

Dragon's Tears - First person, my first Het Draco, though he doesn't really have any love interest, but part of a larger story arc, so I know he is.  And Letters, a kind of Post-Script one-shot in the same universe.

Precious Silver - Well, not so much a Draco fic, but sort of.  And my first pairing of Draco with anyone but Harry... :D  At least two more stories planned in this Arc.

Finding Harry - Another Het Draco.  AU.  Might end up with Hermione in this one.  :)

In One Blow - My most recent.  Third person again.  I think this might be the most canon of my Dracos, really.  Definately not het.  H/D & S/D :D

---

Stuff I'm working on with Draco in it:
Sequel to Snapshots, again, will be first person.  This one has Bastard!Lucius in it.
Sequel to Precious Silver, entitled Tarnished Silver.  Third person, and this really will be Draco, as well as the pseudo-draco in Precious Silver...  The whole Arc will have a decided Sev/Draco bent to it. :)
Strangers Till Now, Crossover with Labyrinth.  Draco doesn't seem to be cooperating much for this one.  It's Draco/Hermione, so Het again, but he doesn't seem to be wanting to say much...
Winter Flowers, which isn't so much a Draco fic, as has Draco in it a fair deal.  If I can manage to write a believable toddler...
Five Times Out, which is third person, and again H/D....
And, unfortunately, a Veela!Draco fic, which is H/D, what a shocker....

You know, sometimes I wish my muse wasn't blonde... ;)
