Chapter 4: Tom Jones

Don't suppose this is gonna mean anything to anybody but me, but hey, it's my lj :)

Anybody remember about a million-jillion years ago I wrote an H/D story where Draco is a choir director in Ireland? I did this thing where I linked to a bunch of choir songs that Draco's choir sings. Most of them were songs that my own choir sang, and some of the files I linked to were recordings of my own choir.

Well, tomorrow is my choir's tenth anniversary concert (and may I say it both pleases and disturbs me deeply to say that I'm a founding member of a choir that is ten freaking years old) and we're singing a bunch of the songs that were mentioned in the fic. And it made me all nostalgic for the fic itself. As well as totally grateful to be part of a choir that sings such beautiful stuff.

Our men's section is currently tiny and... um... not very good. In part because they're so few. But the rest of the choir is sounding better than ever. Our concert tomorrow is going to be gorgeous.

::happy sigh::

In case anybody's interested, here's some links:

Here's a bonus thing we're not going to be singing tomorrow, but was in the Ember to Ember soundtrack (I think Draco sang it as a lullaby? Possibly?) and totally blew me away when we sang it at our last concert. This is what it sounds like when 200+ people sing with their eyes closed.

I'm serious. We were doing the final rehearsal before the performance, at least seven choirs including a children's choir and a francophone high school choir, and the guest conductor (Stephen Hatfield, OMG) had us all close our eyes as an exercise in "truly listening to each other and blending your voices." It went well, we all opened our eyes, said, "Cool!" and then the conductor said, "You know what? That was so good I think I'm gonna have you do it like that for the concert. You don't need me."

We honestly thought he was joking.

Close-up starting at 54 seconds. I'm guessing the one tenor whose eyes are open was from the high school and didn't get the instructions translated to him, poor guy. I wonder if he spent the whole song waiting for the conductor to come back.

I've... gone and committed fic. In a new fandom. Well, new for me, Ms "Jump on the Bandwagon Three Years Later." It's over on AO3. Where I really need to think about posting the rest of my HP fic.

OK, I don't need to think about posting it... I need to actually post it. It's just that the thought of actually doing it feels me with ennui the likes of which are only surpassed when I contemplate doing cleaning out our pantry.

Wow, no entries in weeks, and all of a sudden, three in a row. Weird.

I've kinda fallen for a new fandom. Avengers. Kinda heavy. As in, devouring fanfic, and even writing some.

So, two requests, for any other Avengers fans out there (and I know you're out there ;)

  • Any fic recs? My OTP is Clint/Coulson, but I'm also thrilled to read any good fic (including gen and het) starring Clint, Phil, or Steve, as well as Steve/Tony, Clint/Steve, Steve/Phil... pretty much any combination of Clint, Phil, Steve or Tony. Natasha, Pepper and Bruce are cool too, Thor is OK, Loki frankly creeps me out, and I started to read a slashfic starring Fury and then realized I was only doing so in the same spirit as I once started to read one starring Barty Crouch Sr., and stopped right there.

  • Anyone up for betaing? I'm writing a Steve/Tony, God help me.
annafugazzi: (OMG)
Right, so, the other thing I totally forgot to post... for about a year... was my entry into the HP April Fool's Fest for 2012. In my defence, I was waiting for reveals to happen, and they never did, but... yeah. I kinda... forgot.

The April Fool's Fest, for those who don't know, was a fest where we all made fools out of ourselves. Those of us who write attempted to draw, and those of us who draw, attempted to write. The results were often, um, unique :) We were also given prompts that were more, um, creative than the norm. The last year we also got our title assigned to us and the name of our giftee concealed until after we'd posted :)

It was a cool fest. Sad to see it go :(

Title: The Sky Is So Green Today
Recipient: [ profile] eeyore9990
Medium: Sweet Home 3D, Apple Paintbrush.
Characters: Mad-Eye Moody, Firenze, Nagini
Rating: G. Seriously.
Warnings/Kinks: None at all.
Summary: A chance encounter can change everything.
Artist's Notes: My prompt was: "Firenze, Moody, Nagini (not all together [unless you WANT to]) but I'm open to anything with any of those characters. Theme: outside the norm."

Well, I have never written or drawn anything with any of these three characters, so this was very much of a think outside the norm for me too!

Right! Well, I totally forgot to post this year's [ profile] hd_holidays entry. My recipient was [ profile] romaine24 (hey, no pressure, I only adore just about everything she writes), and I had a heck of a time with my betas getting clobbered by life just when the thing was due. Thank you so much for the mods, for their infinite patience - both for this fic in particular, and for seven amazing years of [ profile] hd_holidays.

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria, past Harry/Draco
Summary: A random curse leaves Harry and Draco forced to work together again. It's quite all right, though; they can be professionals. It'll be a nice change from the last time they worked together.
Rating: R?
Epilogue compliant? Pretty much.
Word Count: ~ 17K
Author's Notes: [ profile] romaine24, I've never used an actual plot prompt before, but your third one was too cool to pass up. Thanks so much to [ profile] aquila_star and [ profile] groolover, for awesome betas :D

Part 2
annafugazzi: (Feed me soup)
So, here's the second batch of fics that were written solely for me at the end of the last [ profile] hd_holidays. I'm still all verklempft over this. I wasn't that upset at not getting a fic or pic, because considering how huge [ profile] hd_holidays is, it's a testament to how awesome the mods are that a dozen people don't fall through the cracks. However, going from nothing to an even dozen fics and pics made just for me was just... whoa.

Anyway. Here's the second set of fics and pics. Hope you guys enjoy them as much as I did :) :) :)

    Title: The Mystery of the House-Elf Choral Society
    Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, brief non-explicit reference to Harry/OMC and past Harry/Ginny, Portrait!Snape, Minerva McGonogall, Hermione, Dobby
    Summary: Auror Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts following a strange and seemingly irreversible attack on the new Potions Master, Draco Malfoy. While keeping a petrified Malfoy company, Harry works through his muddle of a personal life and his doubts about his professional career while trying to get to the bottom of the mystery. With only a bottle of expensive Muggle wine and a number of cryptic owls as clues, Harry must get to the bottom of the attack before somebody else is harmed. Who are the mysterious House-Elf Choral Society and why does Malfoy give them money every month?
    Rating: G
    Word Count: ~13,500
    Author's Note: Written in response to the [ profile] hd_holidays post requesting gifts for [ profile] annafugazzi. For the purposes of this fic, Dobby survives the war and the story is set four years after the Deathly Hallows. I really enjoyed writing this fic, which grew into something larger than I expected when I started out. Enjoy!
    Comment: Oh wow. This was so awesome - long, plotty, and so full of Harry just reaching out and being adorable in an angsty sort of way and wonderful and... well, OK, not the most awesome Auror in the world, but that's part of the charm! Much as I love BadassAuror!Harry, it's also a thrill to see an alternative :D :D :D

    And Draco. ♥♥♥. And Snape! Who I normally don't even like!

    And the House-Elf Choral Society!

    Title: Dream
    Pairing(s): H/D
    Summary: T'is is another stocking stuffer for [ profile] annafugazzi, and the reason is simple: I wrote crack for her this morning, and tonight I write 'feeling'. Draco-POV, and can be read as the subtext to 'I was never your enemy'

    Word Count: 700
    Author's Notes: This, darling, is a little bit of what's real, I hope, and this, I hope, is the meat-and-bones of it, and far more satisfying than silly parlour tricks. You deserve the real thing, the heart of it. You've given such heart to us, and no lie, so? No magic....just want, pure and simple. Want, and love. With all best regards, Tiger
    Comments: I couldn't believe [ profile] tigersilver wrote me two stories! Different as night and day. This one... I can't give it a better comment than a direct quote that just charmed the heck out of me:

    Spoilt children have spines, nonetheless; they grow them, and Draco’s is steel, Malfoy steel, thanks so much, and he’s been given—no, he’s taken, as his due, Potter.

    Title: Ribbons and Rings
    Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny (in the past) Ron/Hermione (the merest mention), and Pansy/George.
    Summary: Draco Malfoy’s life after the war officially sucks, until the day Pansy Parkinson decides to give him the perfect Christmas gift – one all tied up with a perfect, Slytherin bow.
    Rating: PG-13 (barely)
    Warning(s): M/M (duh), language, and WAFF. I know people don’t normally warn for WAFF…but I don’t normally write WAFF, so it seems apropos.

    Author's Notes: Written for the lovely AnnaFugazzi, because she didn't get a gift for the HD_Hols fest. <3 Prompts/words I used: Aurors, curse-breaking, humor, owls, and silk ribbons!
    Comments: OK, so I have a soft spot for both George and Pansy, but they weren't even my favourite parts of this story. Poor Draco being post-DH-mopey, yet still so himself, and Harry deciding to be his own person, and Ginny safely out of the way with no bashing in sight, and... and Slytherins give the best Christmas presents :D :D

    Author's Notes: Happy HD Holidays, Anna! You're awesome to be so gracious about the goof, and I've thoroughly enjoyed your stories through the years. As someone who had to drop out and helped create more stress and chaos for the mods, I'd like to give you a little something to help make up for it. Hope you enjoy! :) Very short, totally unbetaed and probably crap, FYI, but written with the best of intentions.
    Comments: No, not crap at all :D :D :D

    So about this one... let's just say that Harry and Draco take their, um, jobs very very seriously. Ahem. ::snicker:: ::thumbs up::

    And also, Slytherins are still hilariously inventive in the next generation ;)
annafugazzi: (Feed me soup)
So, here's the final table of fics and pics for H/D Holidays. I ended up with twelve gifts in the end, which... um. Wow. I have no words - which is an inconvenient thing, as I have not yet even given proper feedback to four of my lovely, wonderful gifters, beyond a kinda flaily "Squee! Thank you so much!"

Anyway, the regular fest entries are below the row of ***, and include all authors/artists, so you can go and see if you guessed right on any of us :)

I'll be posting Post #2 for my own giftfics in the next couple of days. Once I've figured myself out. To say I'm incredibly touched by the generosity of the folks who made me lovely fics and gifts at a time way past the last minute is to put it mildly. This fandom is awesome, folks.

Full table of fics and pics )
annafugazzi: (Feed me soup)
So you know how I said I was gonna make a post linking to the three gifts I got from H/D Holidays?

Um. Yeah, while I was working on the coding and being called away by RL, that number kinda... grew. Eeep!

    Epilogue compliant? EWE
    Author's Notes: Dear [ profile] annafugazzi, you asked for Aurors, curse-breaking, Professors, slow build-up, humour, silk ribbons, owls, and plot. Please accept this humble token of my appreciation. Happy New Year! Much love to the moderators of [ profile] hd_holidays.

    Epilogue compliant? EWE implied, could be compliant if you squint and stare really hard.

    Author's Notes: [ profile] annafugazzi, you asked for slow build up (if this fic had been properly done for the exchange, it likely would have been 3-5 times longer), humor, curse-breaking, aurors, professors, silk ribbon, owls, and oh so importantly, and what inspired the story, house elf choral society. I wanted to write a story for you because, though you don't know me, I really owe you big time for H/D all together. See, once upon a time, five and a half years ago, I hated H/D as a ship. A friend of mine loved them, and I gave her a challenge: send me a link to ONE H/D fic of her choice, and I would read it. If I wasn't convinced, she'd never mention H/D to me again. She chose well, she chose very well. She sent me to read Bond, and the rest, you could say, is history. So it really pleases me to write a fic for you, and while it's short, I hope you enjoy it.
    Comment: OK, this has Draco at his snarky best, a mystery, and a choir. And Harry being obsessive, as only Harry can be :D :D :D

    Warnings/Summary: Not beta'd, as I only wrote it this morning, but this is but a little stocking stuffer for the absolutely amazing [ profile] annafugazzi, in response to her prompt found here, and is given with great joy and best wishes for a rather brilliant star in this fandom!  The Weasley twins happen to have a whole lot of spare materials for the making of mischief laying about unused and Hogwarts is surely dreary in the beginning of January, Harry's 6th Year. Such is clearly the perfect staging area for a sudden 'Attack of the Sillies'!

OK, so, dealing with a bit of shock here, so please excuse any babbling, 'kay?

The final H/D Holidays finished the other day, and it was awesome. The mods did a wonderful job, and I had been awash with angst over my entry but with major help and patience on the part of the mods and my betas, I ended up with something I was fairly pleased with, and my giftee was very sweet in her comments, and the fics and pics reminded me why H/D has such a place in my heart despite by brain currently being populated by a whole lot of Clint Barton/Phil Coulson and Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, and all was well, except for one thing: I didn't get a gift.

Really, it wasn't a huge deal. It's a huuuge fest, and a lot of people drop out, and I didn't mention it to the mods because c'est la vie and all that. I did mention it to [ profile] twistedm, though, who asked what happened - and it turned out that the mods had about a billion things going on and my gifter dropped out and my gift slipped through the cracks, which, seriously, is not a big deal. Shit happens.

Except that wasn't good enough for the mods. I was profusely apologized to, and offered a replacement gift, and when I said really, it wasn't necessary... well...

I got a post asking for pinch-hitters. And then I got pics. And a fic. And...

I'll, uh, be over there, being all blinky-teary, if you don't mind. Post with links to follow tomorrow.
annafugazzi: (Feed me soup)
Here goes, the very last entries for H/D Holidays. The stories will remain anonymous until January 14, so make sure to go over there and give the artists and writers love while you can still say you have no idea who any of them are :D :D

So, yeah, suddenly it's not just December: it's almost halfway through December already, and H/D Holidays has been posting its final fest for almost two weeks.

So in the spirit of helping out those who may be just as far behind as I am, here's the first week's worth of art and fics :D )
