Art Rec!

So, I had this idea a few months back, and it bloomed into a story idea that will be my NaNoWriMo come next month.

The idea itself is Harry as a sultan, and Draco as his slaveboy. Before I decided to write it as my NaNo, I put it up as an idea for HD_Fanart over at LJ.

The picture went up today, and all I can do is squee. It's absolutely gorgeous. So if anyone were to want to go see it, here it is: On My Command. Go check it out and tell the artist how gorgeous it is. :D

Fic rec!

[info]kabal42 wrote me the most gorgeous fic...  It's Harry/Draco, and based on V for Vendetta, and she really did an amazing job.  Everyone should go read it.

Part of my fandom history

When I first started reading HP fanfic, I didn't consider myself a slasher.  I only read het or gen, and kept it at that.  Of course, the prevalence of slash in HP fanfic made it impossible to ignore, and so I began stumbling over slash fic with more and more frequency.  Finally, after reading the third or fourth piece, I decided to just get it over with, and went to search out some of the "big" fics of the time.  Now, this was in 2003, and fandom was probably reaching its peak. 

The first of the stories I found, was, of course, Rhysenn's Irrisistable Poison.  It was that and another fic that inspired me to start writing my own fic, and I always look back on it fondly.  Unfortunately, soon after she wrote IP, she stopped writing the pairing, and so when I saw that she was doing a new post-DH canon fic picking up after the last scenes of DH, but before the epilogue, I was thrilled.

And when I read The Debt, I was even more thrilled.  Even without this fic, I would love her, but the final chapter made me weep.  Not because it was sad, but because she took her own most famous scene, and worked it for this new canon, and the scene is so good...  The story left me smiling and teary in the best way possible.

I feel like I'm saying good-bye to something, but I'm not.  I guess it's more that it just feels like things are coming full-circle.  If you're a fan of Rhysenn's or IP, you should definitely give it a read.  And if you've never read IP, I highly recommend it, and I promise you'll get so much more out of The Debt if you read IP first.

Part 2: Favorite Ships

I've put a list together of some of my favorite ships, and some great fics for each ship.  I tried to go with newer fics, but if I couldn't find something from the last year, I went with my favorite fics, period, so there are classics here as well as long-time favorites and new ones.  Enjoy!

In leu of my usual reclist, today I present a special rec-list: Harry/Draco Recs and Resources.

I'll work my way down from most popular to least. Hope everyone enjoys!

Today's Anniversary Recs:

[info]tracy_loo_who requested Blind!Harry, with a Harry/Draco leaning...

My Recs:
As a Bat – PotterMalfoy24 - PG - the first year at Hogwarts, so currently gen, but the author says it will be H/D...
As I See You - Plumera - NC-17 - Harry's not strictly blind in this, just pretending, but Draco is, so he wants to know what it's like.  Companion piece to Draco in Darkness.
Closure - Juxian Tang - NC-17 - Postwar Harry/Draco.  Harry's been blind since the end of the war.
A Different Way to See Me - Jamie2109 - PG - Draco shows Harry that just because he's blind, doesn't mean he can't see.

[info]millieweasley requested Femmeslash or Weasley, so I gave her a mix:

My Recs

Addicted To – Mieko Belle - R - Pansy/Hermione, but it's one-sided.
Art – Mieko Belle - PG - Hermione/Padma.  again, one-sided.
Untitled (I could make her happy) – Flora - NC-17 - Marietta/Cho.  another one-sided (do you think I have a thing for angst? ;) ).
Broken Fate – Qwi_Xux - PG13 - Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny.  The Trio's kids from the future come back in time to change their own fate.
I’ll Kiss You – Violet Quill - NC-17 - Bill/Tonks.  Tonks is sent on a training excersize with a guy she's had a crush on forever.
Memories– Arionrhod - PG13 - Remus/Bill.  Remus takes time to mourn the loss of his friend, and discovers he's not the only one who remembers him.

And [info]lysa1 requested Lucius/Severus

My Recs:
Parting Gift – Sparrowhawk - NC-17 - Snape coming home from Hogwarts for the last time gets a little present from his year-mates.
The Visit – Fluffyllama - R - Snape plays a game with a friend.
Vert de Grice – Anise & Moshes - NC-17 - Dark and sad.  Hanky warning on this one.  Severus goes to see Lucius a final time.
The Potions Master and the Brute – Mags - PG13? - AU based on Beauty and the Beast.
Nothing Left to Release – Rose Whispers - R - Severus's memories of Lucius.  Another hanky warning, here.


There will be more tomorrow.  Keep those requests coming!  Pimp this out to your friends!  If you don't know what's going on, go Here, and make your request!

Fan fic re-rec'd

So, at the beginning of my flirtation with lj, I found this lovely little H/D fic by [info]no_me_toques entitled Correspondence.  And then I found it again at FA.  And I waited breathlessly for the third part to appear.  Which it hasn't.  But what I didn't know was that [info]no_me_toques has a journal just for it: [info]correspondence_.  :D  All the entries are back-dated to when the letter in each entry would have been written, so you can friend it, but it won't show up on your current flist.  You can ask to be updated though...  Just thought I'd share.  I was too excited not to. :D

Harry/Draco Recs--Limited Time Offer...

So, I have just made a separate list of all of the Harry/Draco stories I have ever rec'd.  If anyone would like it, I can send it their way...  Just let me know. :D

That is all.

30 days and counting...

For those of you who know me personally, I will now apologize, because most likely, the only thing I will be able to concentrate on is a certain book that is shortly to be released.  I will not, however, pretend that it is not. 

As for writing...Well, I've worked my list down to a chosen few fics, which may or may not get done within that time.  There shouldn't be any surprise fics (Draco's birthday) in the next thirty days.  I hope.  So, on to the list:
Primitus Conspicio - H/D - Harry and Draco are placed under a curse by Lucius.  Based on the movie Ladyhawke.
Five Times Out - H/D - Vaguely PWP, Draco takes to following Harry to a club while wearing disguises so he won't be recognized.
Snape's Son - Gen - The war is over, and Snape discovers something new to give his life meaning at the deathbed of Albus Dumbledore.
Strangers Till Now - Draco/Hermione - Draco sends Hermione on a little visit to see his cousin -- the Goblin King.  Based on Labyrinth.
Still untitled Veela!Draco story - H/D - After the war is over, Draco decides to act on something he's wanted for a very long time.

Two of those are chaptered, or at least exceptionally long fics, so I'm not too sure I'll finish them in time, but we'll see.  The most likely to be finished are PC and SS.  Now just to sit and actually do it.

In reading news:
Currently reading the sequel to Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee, called Metallic Love.  I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the first.
As far as fic goes, I'm currently reading Per Solum Lacuna By Words Alone, which is an utterly gorgeous Harry/Draco anonymous correspondance (through journals) fic.  I don't think it's completed (yet), but as it's taken me this long to even catch up, I think it's a fabulous read.  I can't wait to see what happens when they begin to realize who they've been talking with. :D
Other than that, it's just been the usual bits and pieces on my flist, though I have been surprisingly drawn to the classic literature retold as HP stories lately: Great Expectations, and Severus Snape and the Ghostwritten Romance (Cyrano de Bergerac) particularly stand out as stories I'd highly recommend.  If anyone out there has similar works, I'd love to read them. 

That's all for now. :)

Happy Birthday <lj user

Happy birthday to [info]geoviki, aka Duinn Fionn, who has written what I consider two of the best H/D fics in the fandom:

Draco, Draco, Draco.

So, I seem to be in Draco-mode today.  This week, maybe?  hmm...

I think it's partially cause of reading What Separates Us finally.  Great fic, if you like H/D slash. 

So, I'm working on Tarnished Silver.  Not so fun.  Draco's just come face to face with what his father wanted to do to him....  Not really pretty.

And I'm discovering that my Het/Gen Dracos aren't as fun, or as powerful, to write...  Wonder why my brain does that?
