5:26 pm - Fic Alert!
OMG, I WROTE A THING!!!

Holy crap, y'all. This is the first time I've written a full-on fic in... well, I'm not even willing to say how long it's been. I was so out of practice that I had basically forgotten how to write. And for some inexplicable reason, I apparently thought this would be a swell time to pick up a prompt that was way outside my usual realm. (Or what used to be my usual realm, at any rate. It's been so long that I don't even have a realm anymore!) Ha. Hahahaha.

But! I pulled it off somehow! All things considered, I'm sure this isn't exactly the greatest thing I've ever written. But it's a FIC and it's DONE and I AM THRILLED! *\o/*

Title: Nothing So Sordid as a Dalliance
Author: [info]r_grayjoy
Characters/Pairings: Albus/Minerva
Rating: NC-17
Kinks/Themes/Content: UST -> RST, cross-gen/age disparity (Minerva is 18 here)

2:12 pm - Rec (Fic for Me!)
My wish was fulfilled in [community profile] daily_deviant's Banging Birthday, and it is amazing!! *flail*

The Elite Programme by ???
Rufus Scrimgeour/Alastor Moody
NC-17; ~5,700 words
Abjfahipcaf, OMG, where has this fic been all my fandom life?! This is young Rufus and Alastor meeting for the first time as new recruits in the Elite Auror training program, and everything about it is brilliant.

The young versions of these characters here are just so perfectly them. Or rather, they're perfectly not them -- not yet. They haven't grown into the "them" that we know from canon, but the raw materials are so clearly there. The backstories the author has created for them are absolutely ingenious, and the dynamic that develops between them is electric.

This entire thing is gorgeously written, wonderfully developed, and topped with a seriously knuckle-biting consummation scene. I could pick apart all the subtleties and fantastic bits for days, but... just go read it! Go give it the love it deserves.

4:10 pm - What Year is This...?
So. Today, those of us in the U.S. are watching a historic launch on a backdrop of massive civil unrest. I feel like I went to sleep in 2020 and woke up in 1969.

Except I'm not quite sure where COVID-19 fits in, since that's more of an 1918 thing.

I've been wanting to check in for a while and ask how everyone's holding up. You all still okay out there, even though we have a pandemic in full swing? I know a lot of folks who are vulnerable or have loved ones who are vulnerable, and it's making me want to reach out and try to get in touch with basically everyone I've had any connection with in the last fifteen years. Argh.

Personally, I'm probably doing better than most. Work-wise, I've been deemed "essential personnel," so my paycheck is unaffected. (Plus my workplace has been on a pretty tight lockdown with few people allowed into my workspace -- although that's about to end, so that's a bit worrisome.) And I'm a pro at this "social distancing" thing, since I rarely go anywhere unnecessary in the best of times. :P

I've been lucky so far, all things considered. But lately I just keep feeling like I've gained a much deeper understanding of the meaning of that old curse. "Interesting times," indeed. It just keeps getting more "interesting" by the day. Oof.

So, yeah, how are all of you doing? Drop a quick note and let me know you're still hanging in there.

Prompt claiming is now OPEN! Members get a 24 hour head start; claiming opens to watchers at noon U.S. Eastern time tomorrow. Click the banner to check out the list of wishes and decide which one you want to snag!

In related news... There's a prompt that I'm reeeeeally tempted to pick up. But I haven't managed to write anything in so long that I'm afraid I'd totally fail to deliver. I'm thinking I'll leave it alone for a while, and of no one else snatches it up pretty soon... maybe... I'll grab it...?

5:00 pm - Rec (Fic for Me!)
Fine Line by [info]snax0
Severus/Sirius; NC-17; 620ish words
This ficlet was written in response to a prompt I dropped into Kinky Kristmas: Comment Kink, and let me tell you, this is everything I could have wanted from the prompt and then some. Essentially, I asked for "desperate, need-it-now sex" and tossed in "Things are different in the afterlife." And [info]snax0 turned it into something fantastic. There's so much in so few words. There are fab little bits of characterization, intriguing hints of a shared history, and of course, it's hot like burning. I think what strikes me the most about it, though, is how incredibly vivid it is. It really feels like a hot, sweaty, sticky, disheveled mess in the best possible way.

8:12 pm - Daily Deviant is Moving!!
After thirteen and a half years on InsaneJournal, we’ve decided that it’s time to relocate Daily Deviant to DreamWidth.

We’ve loved living on IJ, and we’ve stayed put for as long as we could, but recent months have made it apparent that the comm can no longer thrive here. Spam commenting has become a major issue. We can’t leave anonymous commenting on without getting thoroughly flooded with junk. And with anon commenting turned off, no one can use OpenID to comment with other accounts either. Therefore, no one can comment or participate unless they have an IJ account. Even more limiting is the fact that new users can no longer open IJ accounts without an invitation code from an existing user. This creates a situation that’s counter to the atmosphere of participation and interaction that we’ve always attempted to foster.

So, we’re moving. We already have a Daily Deviant comm on Dreamwidth. Up until now, it’s only been used as a placeholder and a spot to crosspost announcements. Over the next couple of months, we will work on getting it set up to be a fully functional community.

For details on when the move is to take place as well as some info about Kinky Kristmas and Banging Birthday, see the official announcement post on InsaneJournal or on DreamWidth.

Current Daily Deviant posting members who are not yet members of the comm on DW, feel free to hit the "join" button. We’ll approve your membership ASAP. Any former posting members who might have left due to inactivity on IJ or something similar and are interested in returning after the move to DW, just get in touch with us! We’ll get you taken care of.

current mood: determined

12:40 pm - Gimme All the Slash!!
I don't know what triggered it, but lately my slash goggles have been in enhanced mode with their high beams on. And I want the (preferably smutty) fic for EVERYTHING, OMG.

Exhibit A: Last weekend I randomly watched Season of the Witch. Which is a fairly mediocre, bordering on B movie, for the most part. But the relationship between the two lead characters is... nnnnngh, so much yes! And now I desperately want fic. (Actually, since it doesn't seem to exist, I'm kind of tempted to write it myself, but wow no one would ever read that!)

Exhibit B: In preparation for the TV series coming out at the end of the month, I randomly reread Good Omens. And now, yes, I want alllll the slash fic. Fortunately, a fair bit of that does exist, and I imagine a lot more will come into being after the series airs. But if anyone happens to have any recs for good Crowley/Aziraphale fic, I will eat them up with a spoon. Please??

Fic aside, who else out there is looking forward to watching Good Omens soon? Quite a few of you, I'm guessing. Right...?

current mood: geeky

We're now collecting prompts for a new party game that will kick off following the end of the Dirty Drabble/Drawble Days. We're looking for birthday, anniversary, or other celebration-themed OBJECTS and LOCATIONS. They can be HP-specific or general; magical or mundane. Be celebratory, be kinky, be creative!

2:47 pm - The 13th Birthday Bash Has Begun!
We've kicked off Daily Deviant's 13th Birthday Bash with a return of the Freaky Friending Meme! With the somewhat renewed interest in LJ/IJ/DW of late, plus the introduction of quite a few new members along with the resurfacing of several seasoned ones, it seemed timely. Join in, let everyone know where to find you, and meet some interesting new perverts people!

Then, starting Wednesday, we'll have six days of dirty drabbling and drawbling. Be there or be vanilla!

8:26 pm - Drabble Prompts?
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!

8:11 pm - Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 5


(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. ;)

current mood: behind!

6:12 pm - Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 3


Day 3:

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much.


My whole "getting back into the swing of fannish things" process is, of course, making me remember all the things I adore about HP fandom. But I'm also remembering how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tin Man (tiny fandom that it was and microscopic fandom that it must be by now). So. Much. LOVE! ♥

The entire thing is just chock-full of great moments. My personal favorites? Pretty much any interaction between Cain and Glitch or Raw and Glitch. So much chemistry, gah! (Seriously, Cain/Glitch is one sidestep away from being canon, what with all the "Good morning, Sweetheart" and "Wanna dance?" and "issues with masculinity" and so forth. Fanservice? What fanservice?)

Also, the soundtrack? Is amazing. You can hear the opening theme here. One of the top all-time great TV/fantasy themes, as far as I'm concerned. If it doesn't give you chills and make you at least a little bit excited about the show, there might be something wrong with you. ;)

I'm also going to cheat and share something that is kind of a combo of canon and fanwork. A fanvid someone made years ago that shows a lot of great moments/clips from the series. It's Glitch-centric, and the song they've chosen is just hilariously perfect for the character. If you're familiar with the character, you will get a laugh or two out of this. Glitch: Don't Fix It.

And finally, for those who've never seen Tin Man and want to, the first part is right here.

...Hey, if I happened to write more Tin Man fic after all this time, is there anyone out there who'd still be interested in reading it? 'Cause I really, really miss these guys...

8:30 pm - Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 2


Day 2:

Rec at least three fanworks that you didn’t create.


This is actually a bit more difficult than it ought to be, thanks to how out of touch I've been. My first instinct is to rec some old faves from way back... but the point of all of this is for me to get back into the swing of things now, so delving into the past would kind of be counter to the purpose. I have managed to stumble across a couple of great things just in the past week or two, so I'll go with those...

The first two are both pieces of art that I discovered while doing some general maintenance on [info]daily_deviant that I somehow missed when they were originally posted. They're both right up my alley and did a good job of reminding me of exactly why I love the hell out of this fandom. (Well, the pervy end of it, at any rate!)

Early One Morning by [info]mywitch
Snape + voyeur!Slughorn; NC-17
Hoooooooly GUH. I had to scrape my jaw off the floor after I saw this one. It just hit so damn many of my bulletproof kink and fandom glee buttons. Wanking. Snape wanking. Teenage Snape wanking. Scrawny, stringy-haired, all sharp points and awkward angles, teenage Snape wanking...! *head explodes* What sends it into super dirrrrty territory, though, is the perspective. Slughorn is spying from the doorway, yes, but it feels like we're spying too, from somewhere deeper within the store room. It's just so wrong in all the right ways.

Crash by [info]akatnamedeaster
Snape/Sirius; NC-17
Nnnnngh, YES! This piece is just so damned intimate and intense. It perfectly conveys the sort of frantic, lust-fueled, full-speed-ahead-and-damn-the-consequences madness that pushes all my buttons with this pairing. The setting and the precise moment captured -- the lightening strike in the dark room -- is what really cranks the intensity level up to eleven. So freakin' prefect.

I'm going to cheat a bit for the final one. Rather than rec a specific piece, I'm going to link everyone to the final masterlist of pieces posted to Kristmas Comment Kink this year. As always, there's a fantastic assortment of smutty fic and art featuring a wide variety of characters, kinks, moods, and themes. I highly suggest you browse the list, pick something that piques your interest, and show an author or artist some appreciation. ♥

current mood: dirrrrty

7:38 pm - Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 1


So, I'm gonna try to do this thing. My plan is to use this as a vehicle to get back into fandoming and writing and posting regularly again. I've been so detached from fandom for so long that I don't know how successful I'll be with this, and I probably won't have much to say that's terribly relevant or interesting, but... I'm gonna try to do this thing. Yep.

Day 1:

In your own space, talk about your Happy Place—the thing that gives you joy, calms you or keeps you sane.


But... but... fandom is my "happy place." Isn't that true for everyone taking part in this challenge??

"Fandom" means different things to different people, though, especially in a fandom like HP that has so many branches and areas of interest. Double especially now, when even the branches have branches. Fannish spaces are far less cohesive and much harder to define than they used to be, it seems. And I'm seven years out of date and out of touch. Still, I don't think the essential core of what fandom truly is has changed.

My first impulse when discussing fandom is to want to talk about journals or comms or fests or fic archives or chats... But those things aren't fandom in and of themselves; they're all simply the products of fandom. The true phenomenon of fandom is something far greater than the sum of its parts. So to speak.

Fandom -- my fandom -- is people: Strange, geeky, intelligent, diverse, fascinating, wonderful people with all kinds of backgrounds and experiences who are nonetheless all the same in some fundamental way that sets "us" apart from "them." Fandom is an experience: a collective exercise in squeeing and flailing and ranting and creating and discussing and theorizing and sharing with others who get it.

Fandom is the weirdest yet strongest family I've ever seen. We may squabble amongst ourselves at times, but the moment an outside element threatens one of us or the things we hold dear, we come together, circle the wagons, defend the vulnerable, and fight like hell until the threat is running away with its tail tucked between its legs. Fucketh not with the affairs of fandom, for we are not subtle and, after we have revealed what an idiot and/or jackass you are, we will probably write homoerotic fiction about you. Wizards and dragons don't stand a chance against us.

I've been mostly gone for quite a while now, but I've never forgotten any of this. And I'll be here for it as much as I can for as long as I can. You can pry my love of fandom out of my cold, dead hands. ...Actually, no, you probably can't.

current mood: contemplative
