I treated myself to a cast iron tea kettle from Teavanna the other day, and I'm steeping some of the Earl Grey [ profile] planejane brought me back. Needless to say, I am done with the shitty, watered down American versions of EG and LG. Ugh :(((

Regarding HD Hols; In the end, I sat on my hands until just after midnight. I really wanted to sign up, but I am shit at deadlines. I'm having feelings of regret, though, so I may try and sign up to pinch. I've been plugging away at something intense, so I'm just going to keep on plugging :)))

I've been using This Proof Absolute by Linnpuzzle for inspiration.

This just totally defines the beauty of H/D for me ♥

Have a fabulous day with [ profile] tracy7307 planned. And there is one more fannish get together with [ profile] planejane tomorrow. I love my girls so much <33333

More recs soonish!

A gracious and beautiful soul filled my prompt at Smoochfest, and I fucking looooove it ♥ ♥ ♥

Epic Collaboration - Harry/Draco [G] by Mystery Artist.

All my creys of joy. All my feelings. Harry plays the violin. Draco sings opera. I am totally in love, I tell you ♥ ♥ ♥

themostepotente: (Dean&Cas/Moshes)
1.) Avengers: Still shipping everyone hard. I like fandoms where I can multi-ship. Thor/Loki ♥ Thor/Loki ♥ Thor/Loki ♥

2.) Supernatural: I started over from the beginning and have been mainlining Sam and Dean. I'm almost on season 6. There's so much I'd missed. I will always, always be a Dean/Cas shipper, but I'm starting to have A LOT of Sam feels. Also, whoopie cushion!Cas. Action figure!Cas. White Castle eating!Cas. Basically, Cas <3

3.) ASOIAF: I haven't enjoyed season 2 near as much as I did season 1. I did love Sunday's episode like burning, though. My GoT Exchange fic turned out to be more gen than shippy, and I can't say I'm overly disappointed at that. Gen is highly underrated.

4.) HP: Still have one or two stories left in me. I'd like to have the one I'm working on posted before the end of the year. It's an involved plotline. Try as I might, I canNOT leave H/D behind. I love it too fucking much.

5.) Merlin: Sorry to report I had to drop from Paper Legends, but I still have 3,000 or so words of a long story I refuse to give up on. Am looking forward to the new season now that I've been caught up for a while. Colin Morgan is someone else I can't make myself quit.

6.) Sherlock: Finally watched season 2. How is Benedict Cumberbatch for real? I'm hoping some fannish feels kick in. Fannish feels, please kick in y/y?

The Sin in Your Grin (and the Shape of Your Mouth) - Sirius/Snape, Remus/Sirius, implied James/Sirius [NC-17] by [ profile] xylodemon.

Christ, I meant to rec this aeons ago. Yup, that’s me, slacker extraordinaire. But look on the bright side. This fic is your piss-warm glass of green-tinted shut the fuck up ala Snape/Black. Happy St Paddy’s Day, kids <3

Okay, so those of you that have had to suffer my Snape/Black love for years know that this is my forever-and-always OTP. And while my allegiances have shifted sides in recent years, I still favour my old bannermen from time to time.

To be brutally honest, most of the reasons I don’t indulge in this pairing anymore are because I have issues with the beautification of it. There are no flowers (unless they’re wilted). There are no candy hearts (unless they’re soured and broken). And there are no ‘I love yous’ (unless they’re preceded by darker words). Too often I see flowery declarations of love that make me hit the back button with speed enough to hurt myself. Two stubborn, damaged men are never going to be able to make a legitimate go of things. Not in 5,000 words. Not in 50,000 words. Not in 500,000 words.

However, in 15,000 words, you will find a gorgeously written depiction of the ugliness that is war and the dysfunctional dynamism that accompanies it. Hey, nobody said life was fair :P

I’ve always loved Julie’s Marauders’ era fics. The voices are impeccable. The interactions are believably canon. And the camaraderie of four unlikely friends is utterly convincing. The opening scene with Sirius and James sharing a smoke leaves me with a stupid grin on my face. There’s just something about her BFF simpatico that resonates strongly with me. And really, all of her fab four interactions have this effect on me. She even writes Peter in a way that makes me sympathise with him much later on some small level. And though my Sirius/Remus mojo may come and go as it well pleases, Julie always manages to attract me all over again, and never in the same way twice.

Of course, there is the Snape/Sirius. Only I could get so wrapped up in a fic I love that I forget the real reason I’m here. Unabashed. Unpretty. Unvarnished. Unutterable. The sex is smoking hot. The wit is sharp. The words are warped. I fucking fall to pieces when Snape/Black is written this way. And I love love love the theme of this story. That Sirius could look back on all his doomed relationships with something akin to fondness is striking to me.

Let me leave you with my favourite exchange from the fic.

"I don't believe that," Sirius said, stubbing his cigarette out on the steps.

"Of course you don't. You always did prefer a pleasant lie to an ugly truth."

Snape reached for the door again, which moved him closer to Sirius, his shadow hiding Sirius' feet and his wrist an inch from Sirius' face, and Sirius suddenly realised, as Snape's robe brushed his shoulder and the moonlight tarnished Snape's hair a deep Ravenclaw blue, that this was the first time he'd been alone with Snape since Snape Apparated out of his flat nearly sixteen years ago.

Sirius looked up at the heavy, listless sky. "You're an ugly truth, Snape."

Enjoy all!

Blame it on the Rhine - Harry/Pansy, heavily implied Draco/Hermione (even if Harry is embarrassingly naïve about it), plus cameos by Astoria, Viktor, and Luna [NC-17] by [ profile] snegurochka_lee.

Time for a fic rec, yes? It’s been a while. I actually read this fic before Christmas, but I wanted to wait until after the first of the year so that this wouldn’t get lost in the holiday shuffle. Yeah, I know. It’s way past the first of the year. But hey, I never claimed to be a timely gal. Reliable, however? That I can swing. *g*

I’m sure you’re all familiar with Lee’s writing. Pairing-wise, she’s very broad spectrum which I totally dig. There aren’t many writers I’d chance a pairing like Snape/Fleur. Even beg a sequel . But Lee just has a way with alpha females battling alpha males. Which brings me to here.

Much as I love my het OTP, I figure there’s room in my heart for one more. I know a lot of people have issues pairing Harry and Pansy together. There is the whole ‘Let’s hand Potter over to the Dark Lord’ conundrum. We’re all aware of that, really. But I can forgive a certain amount of that selfishness and chalk it up to age. To say nothing of time and circumstance.

In all the years I’ve been reading Lee’s work, this is the first story I’ve seen her use visuals. It’s a fantastic plot enhancement to an already cool plot. Draco and Pansy are gallery owners, and Harry’s been assigned security detail. Only, he’s had a one-off with Pansy in the past, and things didn’t go too spectacularly.

One of the particulars I loved about this fic was the concept of art interpretation. Harry’s somewhat of a philistine, you see, and like a lot of museum/gallery-goers, Harry can’t seem to articulate his feelings. Pansy, of course, has more than a bit of fun with that. This whole dynamic just makes me grin and grin and grin.

I’m sure I don’t have to sell you on the ridiculously hot sex. Or the gloriousness that is the thrill of the chase. Or the perfect sexual banter. It’s all here. And with a wonderfully satisfying ending, it’s everything you’ve come to expect from an equally wonderful storyteller. I really enjoyed this lots. I know you will, too ♥

Enjoy all!
