OK, so, I do have other Avengers fics to rec, and also a couple of chapters of my own wipfic to post here in addition to AO3, but here's a rec I've been meaning to put up for a while, written for this year's [livejournal.com profile] cap_ironman Reverse Big Bang:

Incursion by [livejournal.com profile] scrtkpr
Universe: Marvel (Comics), Marvel 616, New Avengers (Comics), Avengers (Comics)
Rating: Teen And Up
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Warning(s): None
Summary: When Steve and Tony are taken down in the heart of Avengers Tower by alternate versions of themselves, their counterparts reveal a threat to both the foundations of the multiverse and to the foundations of Steve and Tony's friendship.
Excerpt: “So,” said Tony, drawing everyone’s attention. He made eye contact with the other two, but not with Steve. “Always a little awkward, trying to shift gears from nonconsensual bondage to science-themed playdate. But you do this all the time, is that right? Any suggestions for smoothing the transition?”

Squeee Rec: Yes, [livejournal.com profile] scrtkpr wrote again!!! And it's lovely! And, take it from a comics newbie, you don't have to know anything about what's going on in comicworld to adore the story. Though I'm told if you do, it's even more awesome :D :D


rambling )
annafugazzi: (Feed me soup)
OK, I haven't done one of these in a long, long time, but here goes!

  • Title: Riches Ready to Drop Upon Me
    Author: [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore
    Fandom: Harry Potter
    Pairing: Draco/Harry
    Summary: During the nights that follow his trial, Draco dreams as never before.
    Rating: PG-13
    Word count: ~1400
    Rec: I thought of putting in excerpts from the dreams themselves, because they're awesome, but that would be denying people the delight of reading them in context and going, "Oh hey I KNOW that one!!"

    This apparently started as crackfic, and it is that, but it's also unexpectedly sweet and touching. It's like... a sweet, cracky love letter to fandom. Even if you've kinda left the fandom? Read it.
    Excerpt: During the nights that follow his trial, Draco dreams as never before. His body lies blamelessly, resting exhausted between freshly-laundered cotton sheets, while his mind adventures to scenes so preposterous that, on waking, he can hardly believe his own nerve.

  • Title: His Father's Son
    Author: [livejournal.com profile] rickey_a
    Fandom: Harry Potter
    Pairing(s): Scorpius/Albus Severus, Draco/Astoria (implied)
    Summary: Scorpius Malfoy tries to find his own way in the world.
    Rating: NC-17
    Word count: ~7,200
    Warnings/Spoilers: Ack, I don't remember how to do this without accidentally revealing it to everyone with a different colour scheme than me. She provides them on her story.
    Rec: I read this one when it came out even though I'm not that much into darkfics. I was... stunned. It's one of [livejournal.com profile] rickey_a's best fics, IMHO, and she's written a lot of good fics. She mentioned somewhere that it hadn't received as much readership as some of her others and I can only guess that people were put off by the darkfic label.

    Which is too bad, because to be honest, even though it's got a lot of painful in it, it's also beautiful. I ended it feeling simultaneously heartbroken, relieved, and uplifted, which was a really weird combination. Went in expecting evil and hatred and found... well, I won't spoil it.

    Seriously, read it.
    Excerpt: "I didn't want to be in the same house as my father either. People are always telling me how much I look like him."

    "Yeah. Me too," Scorpius replies ruefully. "I'm me. You know? It's not really fair. Anyway, I'm going to be as different from him as I can possibly be."

  • Title: Sway
    Author/Artist: Not Applicable
    Fandom: Avengers
    Pairing/Characters: Bruce Banner/Steve Rogers
    Rating: NC-17
    Genre: Hook-up story, romance with angsty feels
    Word Count: 27686
    Warnings: N/A. Just two fully cognizant adults participating in consensual acts.
    Summary: I can hear the sound of violins / long before it begins
    "I know you’re still finding your way around the 21st century, and I know that when you were young it wasn’t as easy for…you probably got used to playing along to some degree."
    Rec: I beta'd this! To be honest, I had not read a lot of Steve/Bruce, but the premise drew me in and the pairing started to make more and more sense. And, much as I adore fics where Steve Rogers is an all-around perfect human being (because in canon he is pretty gosh darn awesome and wholesome) a fic in which he's a human being who makes boneheaded mistakes but remains essentially a good person is always a delight to read :) :) :)
    Excerpt: “It’s a classic.”

    “Well, I kind of remember you describing it as ‘panty peeler,’ and it most certainly wasn’t.”

    Tony and Clint fell into a chorus of empathetic yowls. “No, no, oh no!” Tony cried, and he waved his drink in the air for effect. “I can’t believe it – I cockblocked Captain America.”

  • Title: Family Old and New
    Author: Pookaseraph
    Fandom: Marvel 616, Marvel (Comics), Captain America (Comics)
    Rating: Mature
    Pairing: None
    Words: 33,219
    Summary: When Ian Rogers finally comes to Earth from Dimension Z, his father is in no state to help him adjust, which leaves him relying on the Avengers, unable to forget the violence of his home, and hiding the secret he's sure they will hate him for.
    Rec: I read this by accident - as in, clicked on the wrong button. Best accident I've made in I don't know how long.

    I'm also a complete newbie when it comes to Marvel Comics. I'm (almost) strictly MCU, because the comics confuse me with their endless references to events I've never read and characters I've never met. And I'd never read the current Captain America, because at $4/issue, it's just a little pricey for me.

    Didn't matter. Like, at all. Having now read Captain America 7 (yes, this fic made me cave!) I can tell that there's all sorts of stuff that's richer and more meaningful, but honestly upon first (and second and third) read, I had no idea I was missing anything. Ian and Tony's interactions, and Ian's thoughts about Steve, are just beautiful. He's such an incredibly well-drawn character, and Tony's - and everyone else's - reactions to him are so very, very IC.
    Excerpt: One of Tony's best friends in the world was lying on a emergency bed, and Tony had just watched said friend push away his most prized possession into the hands of a kid who had called Steve 'dad' and Steve had called 'son'. To say he was a bit shaken up was an understatement, but part of being in charge of the Avengers at the moment was standing up and not collapsing in a ball of terror whenever things weren't looking so hot. He took a few steps over to where the kid was huddled, clinging to the shield like a lifeline, head bowed down against the edge of it, weeping.

  1. I got kisses! I feel all warm and fuzzy now :D :D :D Thank you so much, [livejournal.com profile] alaana_fair and [livejournal.com profile] kittie8571. I've been so utterly absent from e-life for so long that it feels all warm and fuzzy that people remember me :) :) :)

  2. Not that it's Christmas, but upon seeing all the kiss posts I got an earworm and just couldn't get rid of it. So I decided to share it!



  3. Totally unrelated: Check it out! What a great idea!
    Camp WannaWatchaMovie:

    MCKINNEY, Texas, July 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Blockbuster L.L.C. is inviting parents to keep their kids entertained every day for the remainder of the summer without breaking the bank. At Blockbuster's "summer camp" – Camp WannaWatchaMovie – kids and parents don't have to worry about putting on sun screen or getting bug bites. Instead, kids can watch unlimited kids and family movies for an entire month with the new Kids Summer Pass.

    You know, I think they should also provide cheap popcorn and free coke. Maybe pizza delivery. And possibly some of those hover-chairs from Wall-E!

  4. There's been a lot of very cool fests going on lately. The first entry of [livejournal.com profile] nextgendarkfest just about blew me away, even though I don't particularly like darkfic.

    Title: My Father’s Son
    Rating: R
    Word Count: 7380
    Pairing(s): Albus Severus Potter/Scorpius Malfoy
    Warnings: self-harm, severe depression, loss/grief, torture, corpses. And more, under a highlight at the link.
    Summary: “They take tragedy so becomingly, which pleases me” (DH Lawrence)

  5. What's really cool is that last year's fest featured a fic with almost the exact same title, same pairing, and... that's where the similarity ends with a crash. Just brilliant, both of them. I really wonder who wrote this year's, though I'm guessing it's someone I already know. Last year "His Father's Son" was one of my favourites, and I eagerly awaited the reveals, thinking I'd have a shiny new author to read. Found out the author was [livejournal.com profile] rickey_a, which was great because I like her but slightly disappointing because I'd already read everything she'd ever written ;D :D :D

    Title: His Father's Son
    Author: rickey_a
    Pairing(s): Scorpius/Albus Severus, Draco/Astoria (implied)
    Summary: Scorpius Malfoy tries to find his own way in the world.
    Rating: NC-17
    Word count: ~7,200
    Warnings/Spoilers: Highlight to read.

  6. And last but not least: The SummHarry
annafugazzi: (Default)
So, before anything else, here's a note from one of my kids:



Hi, my name is J. I am doing a project about the History of History and I have some questions for you:
  1. What comes to mind when I ask you what are the different kinds of history?
  2. What are some huge historical events that changed how we think of history? Or that changed what we think of as history?
  3. When would you say history started?


Your help is appreciated :)

  • Random fic rec #1:
    The Coolest Girl He Ever Knew, by [livejournal.com profile] ozmafics
    Pairing(s): Charlie Weasley/Tonks (Remus/Tonks mentioned)
    Word Count: 1800
    Rating: R
    Summary: At eleven, he thought she was annoying. At twenty-four, he told her he loved her. At twenty-five, he lost her. How Charlie Weasley remembers the love of his life.
    Warnings: Adultery. Angst. A certain amount of Remus-bashing, (understandable, given that he is a rival) canon character deaths.
    Rec: This makes me fall in love with Tonks all over again. Which is saying something, after the less than ultracool treatment she got in Deathly Hallows :(
    Excerpt: At twelve, he watched her take on a large fourth-year Slytherin in defense of a Hufflepuff firstie, and win. He liked her a bit better after that.

  • Random fic rec #2:
    Marginal Notes, by [livejournal.com profile] blamebrampton
    Rating: G
    Word Count: about 9500
    Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
    Summary: When you’re 18, and nothing is as it was meant to be, sometimes it can be hard to let the right people know what you are thinking.
    A/N: Dear [livejournal.com profile] ladydeth12, thank you for always being so interesting and so encouraging to everyone on your flist and in fandom generally. I was aiming for an epic tale of love and passion that met all of your prompts, but with months of overwork that left me writing while travelling, it turned into a little comedic confection that had met your prompts in a dark alley and could vaguely remember what they looked like. I hope it will entertain you anyway. Thanks again for all your support!
    Rec: Author Note = why I love all of [livejournal.com profile] blamebrampton's writing :)
    Excerpts:
    ‘Off you go. If it turns out Justin is pining for a woman’s touch, you are to tell him about my loveliness and virtue.’

    ‘I will construct a plausible work of fiction on those very qualities.’

    ~~~

    ‘Death Eater,’ one of them muttered.

    Failed Death Eater,’ Draco corrected. ‘Bigotry is no excuse for inaccuracy.’

    ‘You tried to kill Harry!’ another snarled.

    Draco was affronted. ‘I most certainly did not. The Dark Lord would have Crucio-ed me if I’d tried. As has been well established, I am an absolute failure at killing. Again, you are very misinformed. Do they teach young people nothing these days?’

  • The House That Cedric Built was nominated for three Draco awards (Best Long Fiction, Best Angst or Dramatic Fiction, Best Romance) over at Draco Awards! Unfortunately, the title is wrong. As in, the fic is not listed as The House That Cedric Built, by [livejournal.com profile] annafugazzi, but as Wrong by [livejournal.com profile] annafugazzi.

    Doh. I suck at naming things - I suspect my ancestry contains a lot of those folks who've given us place names like "Big River" and "Valley Town" and "Main Street" - so I was kinda proud of having finally made up a cool one. Ah well.

  • Remember the History Song list that I asked for help with, about a million years ago? I was looking for songs that told a story about a historical event or person. My kids fiddled around with it for a long time, looking up links to sound or video files, lyrics, and sites explaining the events/persons. Learned some HTML, and finally ended up with this:

    Tell Me A Story

    Go! Take a look - and, where possible, a listen! There's 86 songs there, rock and folk and country and not-English, covering history from The Mesopotamians to 9/11.

  • Ya know, I giggle at DH's Epilogue, and am far more likely to go EWE than Epi for both reading and writing, but I have a huge soft spot for it nonetheless, and (don't hit me) actually really like it. As a grownup it's a bit meh, but I think it's a fine end to a children's book series.

    I was glad when I found out they were going to film it.

    I was even gladder when I found out that they were going to keep the original actors for it in the movie.

    Thrilled when I heard that they were getting coaching on how to walk and move like they were older.

    A bit startled by how much closer to 50 than 37 Harry looked in the pictures that came out yesterday, but overall pretty optimistic about the whole thing. Couldn't wait to see Ron and Hermione and Draco.

    Cover your eyes if you are of the EWE persuasion )

    I was a happy girl this morning.

    I go out for the day, and come back to this:

    Cover your eyes if you like the books at all )

    Holy shit.

    ::scrubs eyes::

    No, that's got to be a joke.

    No, seriously.

    Seriously??!!

    This calls for either a massive drinking binge or a dose of fic.

    Damn, all I have are three sangria coolers.

    Fic it is, then:

  • [livejournal.com profile] vanseedee's Lost In Reality is finished! Many many chapters of angsty/lovely/throat-achy George/Lee. I'm still unable to do much more than flail incoherently over this fic. The ending was one of those things that make you tear up and say "Oh... awwww..." out loud. Go read!

  • And I'll Tell You No Lies and Ember to Ember are both in the new The NEW Most Read H/D Bookshelf! And so are a huge load of others - 285 fics in all. Am planning on plunging back into my original OTP H/D and reading until the godawful "Draco Grew Up To Become Filch" image has been scrubbed from my mind's eye. So I'll see y'all next summer, I think :(

  • I hate to dwell on negativity, and I've never been pre-emptively upset by anything book or movie-related before, 'cause I always figure you never know what'll end up on the cutting room floor or what will, in context, end up perfectly fine despite disturbing sneak peeks. Also, I have pretty low standards.

    But. This. Ohgod.

    Does anyone think there's a chance in hell of convincing WB to refilm the Epilogue? So our last glimpse of the HP world can be fond and touching and satisfying, instead of horrifically embarrassing for everyone involved? Or are we doomed to have to watch this thing once and then pretend the last five minutes never happened, like the ending of The Abyss?





ETA: Still working on the Canon!Draco thing. Suspect I will be All About Draco for the next little while, and possibly All About Ron as well, in a vain effort to compensate for the ruthless violence done to both characters by the WB makeup department :(

  • OK, late to the party as usual, but weighing in on the Diana Gabaldon thingy...

    Does anyone remember when Anne Rice went all strainy with her Dickensian principles (whatever the hell that was supposed to mean)? I think the best reaction I read to that came from Neil Gaiman: "I think Anne Rice going on Amazon and lambasting her critics was undoubtedly a very brave and satisfying thing for her to do, was every bit as sensible as kicking a tar baby, and, if ever I do something like that, please shoot me."

    I actually think Gabaldon has every right to feel how she feels, and to tell her readers, "Please do not fanfic my stuff. If you do and I find out, I will sic my lawyers on you."

    Simple, concise, and to the point, covering her copyrighted heinie, avoiding calling her fans rapists and thieves, and possibly less likely to make her look like a complete and utter tool.

  • Speaking of looking like a tool, someone on my flist linked to this, and I swear I nearly peed laughing. Things That Can Make You Feel LIke An Idiot Almost Instantly. I ::heart:: my flist. So, so much.

  • HP Weekend Fics! It's a community for fics 25,000 words or more! OMFG ::dies of happy::

  • Ah yes, I also come with fic recs!

    The Leaves Talked in the Twilight, for hds_beltane, H/D, R
    Warnings: mpreg, angst.
    Word count: 24,000ish
    Summary: Just when you think you've stumbled into the wrong magic ritual...

    Excerpt: )

  • Endurance of Life, also for for hds_beltane, Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny, R
    Warnings: Vampires, blood-drinking, sex, some angst. This is non-linear and shifts its tenses between scenes, but hopefully won’t be too hard to figure out.
    Word count: 14,700
    Summary: Harry was hit with a curse that the Healers were helpless to stop. Now, on Beltane evening, Harry is ready to admit that Draco was right about the treatment for his condition all along.
    Excerpt: "You sound as though you want to be cursed or turned yourself, Malfoy. Why don’t you go out and get that done?"

    "As a comeback, that’s weak," Draco said. "Besides, you see how pale I already am. Undeath would render me too pale to be attractive."

  • The Green Year, by [livejournal.com profile] lomonaaeren, Harry/Draco, PG
    Warnings: Profanity, some angst.
    Summary: Draco’s private Beltane ritual may not be so private after all.
    Wordcount: 4000
    Author’s Notes: This is the second in what I’m calling the Seasonal Processions series, a set of one-shots taking place on the pagan holidays. It may make more sense to read Equinoctial, the story set on the vernal equinox, first, although this one probably stands alone well enough.
    My note: Yes, it does. I didn't read Equinoctial after The Green Year, and it stood on its own very well :)
    Also, although this is Beltane-themed, it is not part of hds_beltane.

  • Haven't seen anything like this before, and am now really wondering why not: Who is Canon!Harry?

    [livejournal.com profile] frayach did a poll, then summed it all up, re. what most of us think canon!Harry is like. Not fanon, not the Harry he would've been if JKR had let him out of his metaphorical closet instead of just his literal one: pure from-the-source Harry Potter.

    I swear this should be done with more characters. It's a terrific chance to touch base with what we're all supposedly writing about, yes? And while I adore stories in which our heroes depart from canon (pretty much every Harry/Draco ever written) it's good to remind ourselves of our supposed starting point. If only so that we can think of clever ways around it :)

    Anybody taking on canon!Draco? 'Cause if nobody else will do it, and it hasn't been done before, I will :)

annafugazzi: (OMG)
OK, the first week of posting over at [livejournal.com profile] hp_canon_fest is up, and here's a list of fics & pics. I can't do actual recs, since I'm in the fest, but the ♥♥♥ indicate a fic or pic I thought was particularly interesting.

During the previous ten years, a team had meticulously worked their way through Hogwarts, floor by floor, restoring portraits, sculptures, tapestries, books, and furniture, damaged in the final battle in May 1998. Their work was aided in some part by the built-in protection charms necessary for any building housing hundreds of magical adolescents. However, fire suppression and other charms could only do so much in the face of the dark magik wielded by Death Eaters, and the most damaging of these magiks was Fiendfyre.
    Warnings: includes animal dissection
    Extra warning, from me: OMFG I've got to stop reading. It's freaking fascinating. They've recreated fifteen pages of Snape's Potions textbook!
    Thanks so, so much for the link, [livejournal.com profile] schemingreader!

Think I started this post... about a month ago? Maybe? Adding on whenever I got more than five minutes online. December is a RL bitch.

  • First off, my own [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays fic!
    No, silly, not the one I wrote. That would be rather unrulerly unruly against the rules. The one that was written for me, by a lovely anonyperson!
    Title: Under the Influence
    Pairings: H/D
    Summary: When Harry is forced to take on a job that is far from what he is used to, he finds it an extra nuisance that he is being saddled with one Draco Malfoy; the one man in the whole wizarding world he most desperately wants to forget.
    Rating: R
    Warnings: DH-compliant but EWE, also not heeding any of JKR's interviews
    Length: ~12.500
    Author’s Notes: Dear Annafugazzi, I really, really hope you enjoy the fic - I definitely had a lot of fun writing it! Many thanks to my terrific betas M and P.
    Excerpt: "Harry! Please." Malfoy cocked his head and smiled his crooked smile at Harry, that particular smile that curled the left corner of his mouth and never failed to make Harry want to jump and strangle him, or kiss him, instantaneously.
    Rec: Well, it's hard to know what to say about a fic written especially for you, because of course it's gonna hit a lot of your kinks, but I think what I liked most about this were the unexpected bits of prose that just came outta nowhere and caused my kids to look at me funny every time I chortled, whether it was at Ron's reaction to Harry working with Draco, or Luna's abominable and unidentifiable pet, or the... unexpected soap.
    Oh, and the slowly darkening mystery in the background? Very nice :) :) :)

  • Next, one I have been (mostly) patiently waiting for ever since [livejournal.com profile] miss_bowtruckle posted Green and said it had sidebars in ficlimbo.
    TITLE: Whispered Words
    PAIRING/CHARACTER/GENERAL SERIES: George Weasley/Hermione Granger
    GENRE: Het.
    PROMPT: 13 - Red
    RATING: Teen – suggestion of sex.
    WORD COUNT: 381
    SUMMARY: George and Hermione enjoy a dance at their wedding reception.
    NOTES: Set in the same universe as my 2009 hermionebigbang fic, Green.
    Rec: Can't quote it, as it's only 381 words long, but I will say this: aaawww!!!

  • Then, Percy/Oliver! No, really!
    Title: Brilliant
    Author: Margot/[livejournal.com profile] midnight_birth
    Pairing: Oliver/Percy
    Rating: NC-17
    Warning: Alcohol abuse (one characrter gets smashed), scenes of explicit sexual nature. Info given by JKR in subsequent interviews about Percy’s future (wife and kids and all) is disregarded.
    Word Count: 4,098
    Summary: As far as Percy is concerned, Oliver hasn’t ever cared for anything beside Quidditch. When Oliver brings a date to Harry and Ginny’s wedding, however, Percy is resolved that if Oliver is capable of noticing other blokes romantically, he should be one of them. Unfortunately, Percy is very stale at wooing, and Oliver isn’t looking for what Percy is prepared to give.
    Excerpt: Ginny looks beautiful, and Harry looks like he slept with a coat hanger in his mouth.
    Rec: I ::heart:: Percy. So, so much. And drunk Percy is a thing of beauty and a joy to behold.

  • Title: Four Weddings and a Funeral
    Author: [livejournal.com profile] ishafel
    Rated: PG
    Lenght: 501 words
    Pairings: Various Canon Pairings
    Summary: Five things that happened to the Blacks.
    Excerpt: Bellatrix is married in the spring, when war is still a game for children and a nightmare for old men.
    Rec: Um. Wow. Has a bit of a kick. A lovely kick, though, if kicks can be lovely.

  • OK, I haven't read everything in [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkfest, but must say that despite some absolute gems, this one is by far my favourite. A feeling echoed by quite a few folks, so it's likely a lot of my flist has already read it. Oh well.
    I actually had a tinge of disappointment when I found out the author was someone I knew, because I'd sort of wanted it to be somebody I'd never heard of, so I could read everything she'd ever written. It was [livejournal.com profile] rickey_a, whose fic I already know and love well, but hey! An excuse to go re-read! Not a bad thing!
    Anyway, here it is:
    Title: His Father's Son
    Pairing(s): Scorpius/Albus Severus, Draco/Astoria (implied)
    Summary: Scorpius Malfoy tries to find his own way in the world.
    Rating: NC-17
    Word count: ~7,200
    Warnings/Spoilers: Last time I tried using the highlight-to-read trick, a reader got involuntarily spoiled anyway. So I'll just invite you to go and read it, highlighting over the warning on the fic itself, and keep in mind it's from darkfest please.
    Excerpt: "I didn't want to intrude on your time with Albus. You seem to enjoy it so much, that I didn't want you to miss out by having to worry about your old father watching over you. You deserve to have him to yourself."
    Rec: To be honest, part of why I loved this so much was that it wasn't as dark as I'd been dreading. It still hurt - a lot - but there was beauty and hope in there as well.

  • Title: Voodoo Child
    Author: [livejournal.com profile] croatoan6000
    Rating: PG-13
    Pairing: H/D
    Words: 4,594
    Warnings: mild violence, sexual references. Crack!fic
    Summary: Draco suspects Harry of cheating, and will go to any lengths to find out if he’s right...
    Prompts: Romantic comedy, cats, guns, brains, voodoo chicken.
    Excerpt: “Ginny!” Draco forced his face into a smile that made him look like he had stomach cramps. “You’re looking especially lovely today. That shirt really brings out your... um... breasts.”
    Rec: Oh, wow, brilliant crackfic. A perfect counterbalance to thoughty-plotty angst.

  • Title: Tell me a story...
    Author: co-written by [livejournal.com profile] thenotoriousso4 and [livejournal.com profile] kaalee
    Rating: PG-13
    Pairing: Dean/Seamus
    Word Count: ~5800
    Author's Notes: Loosely based in the_leaky-verse. Unofficial backstory to Dean and Seamus’ relationship/friendship. Set in the summer after sixth year. Written in a RP format, so beware of roving PoV.

  • Gosh, I'd forgotten how much I loved QaF. Yesterday I was reminded of why:

    Brian and Justin (though it's mostly Brian & Michael on this clip, and yay! for Michael not sounding as whiny as he usually does) - He left because of you

    Brian and Justin - Justin says No

  • All the above came from a wicked lj thread on on boykissing... which is unfortunately flocked. I would so link to it if it wasn't!

    Oh and sorry, the Brian/Justin clips don't actually feature kissing. Somebody linked to a B/J kissing clip (::snicker:: my inner thirteen-year-old says "you said BJ!"), which linked to another kissing clip, which led to some clips that I didn't know Youtube allowed, which (about an hour later) eventually led to lovely angsty bits. This is why I don't hang around Youtube often ;)

  • Title: Eislean cuir stad air
    Author: Anonymous
    Prompt: Prompt 79. The Tragedy of Deirdre
    Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
    Summary: It is universally agreed that fate is inevitable, though sometimes it can hang on a precipice. It only takes a breath to tip the balance, but on which side will it fall?
    Rating: NC 17
    Warning(s): AU
    Word Count: 68,000ish
    Author's Notes: I've had to mix things around quite a bit to make my vision of the prompt fit into JKR's world. While I've tried to stay close to canon, I have tweaked some things and outright changed others to make the fic work. In the end, I'm happy with it, and I hope you enjoy it too. :D The title translates loosely to 'Sorrow suspended,' and the cut text means 'if this be my lot.' I used Gaelic translations, as inspired by the roots of the fable.

    I don't usually like AUs, but this one drew me in :)

  • Title: Public Affairs
    Author: ???
    Prompt: #215 submitted by [livejournal.com profile] karala
    Rating: R
    Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/Astoria, Harry/Ginny
    Summary: Harry never could have foreseen what would happen when he teamed up with Draco Malfoy to improve the public perception of Slytherin House.
    Warnings: Um, it’s got some rather random cameos, some very vaguely implied femmeslash and it’s cleaner and angstier than I usually write. Other than that…
    Word Count: ~17,500
    Author's Notes: This fic kicked my ass back and forth for months so here's hoping you like it! I’m afraid Snape’s portrait didn’t want to come out and play, but I got your other two additions in.
    Beta’d by Dollface who is so awesome I can barely express it.

  • Title: Partake

    Summary: Draco likes Firewhiskey.

    Disclaimer: JKR owns my soul and everything associated with it.

  • One of my kids apparently has the swine flu. No blood test done, but the doc in the Hazmat suit yesterday said that's what it is. Yesterday he was lying around whimpering, and today he's running around upset that he can't run around more. Yay!
annafugazzi: (DH Twins)
...cause it's also from [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang, a community which, though I thought was great as a concept, did not interest me in the least, which made me sad 'cause I do like Hermione. Just not as a central character.

Though it's a bit like mpreg; I have absolutely no interest in it, except for the dozens of fics I adore that have mpreg in them. Wtf, brain?


Anyway, this one is Green, by [livejournal.com profile] miss_bowtruckle
Artists: [livejournal.com profile] acoustics1220 & [livejournal.com profile] glockgal
Pairing/Characters: George/Hermione, Fred/Angelina
Summary: George is finding that caring for his brother and running a business keep him too busy to look for love, but he finds it anyway.
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 36,408

OK, this one is... um. Well, it's wonderful. Well-written, often funny, touching, and a realistic portrayal of how George and Hermione could possibly end up together in a EWE/NotSoDeadFred post-DH world, and...

And it's also really stuck with me for the last few days. [livejournal.com profile] miss_bowtruckle says she's got a few short stories in this universe, and I'm sort of jittering a bit, waiting for her to put them up. It's struck a personal chord for me, and not just 'cause I like the twins.

See, in April 2001, my husband was in a motorcycle accident. He snapped his right femur, pulped his left wrist, and suffered brain damage. The leg healed after a few months; the wrist after a few surgeries. The brain was never the same.

It's hard, being close to someone who has suffered brain damage. OMFG, this turned out a lot longer than I'd planned, considering this is my mostly-fandom/not-so-personal blog )

I loved [livejournal.com profile] iamshadow's Indivisible By Two stories, because she touches on a lot of that; how the twin relationship changes, how a person changes after severe disability. Part of what [livejournal.com profile] iamshadow does very well (IMHO) is showing how both twins change even though Fred is, mentally, the same guy, just Fred learning to deal with pain and physical disability.

In this story... he's not. There's a lot that's the same, but he himself is not who he was, and that has to change all the people around him. Everyone has had to adjust to a new normal, and [livejournal.com profile] miss_bowtruckle shows it in a whole lot of brilliant ways, large and small (eg Fred's no longer "Mr. Weasley" to Verity... ouch). It's not always pretty, it's not an everybody lived happily ever after ending, but it's overall hopeful. Hermione is wonderful, and the relationship between her and George, taking place while George is dealing with his new role, is lovely.

Excerpts:
  • "Hermione's fun."

    George nodded absently over the top of his book, a mug of coffee on his knee.

    "We played four games, and she didn't even care that I won three of them." Fred held up a green gingerbread counter before reaching to set it on a green square. "And I could remember all the colours except this one." He touched it with one finger.

    George glanced over. "Green."

  • Sunday morning dawned clear and bright, and George was rudely awakened by an enormous something bouncing on the foot of his bed.

    "It's Sunday! Mum says we're having roast and potatoes and it's my favourite ever. Can we go now?"

    George glanced at the clock, then groaned and pulled the covers over his head. "Fred, it's only half-seven. Mum would kill us both if we went now. I may kill you, if you stay here. Please go find something to do..." He knew it would only be a matter of time before Fred was back, but he'd take another half-hour however he could get it.

  • "Ha," Fred said, rolling his eyes. "My brother, alone at the bar, keeping an eye on me. That's cool..." He shook his head. "No way. If you're going, at least take someone along, yeah? So it's not completely pathetic."



So yeah. Now that I've blathered on, go read Green. Enjoy. Send [livejournal.com profile] miss_bowtruckle love. Tell her you'll cry if she doesn't post the other stories in this universe soon no pressure re. those other stories in this universe, you'll be happy to read them whenever she does post them especially if she does so right now.

  • Wtf, [livejournal.com profile] hermionebigbang? I like Hermione just fine, but have had zero interest in reading fics with her as a central character.

    ...except that now I'm going to, because this one was just lovely. I got so utterly sucked in it was ridiculous. Every voice is so incredibly well done, the plot unfolds so carefully, the whole thing just... gah!!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in Fifteen Minutes, by [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda

Excerpts:

HORACE SLUGHORN: Harry Potter! You look just like--
HARRY: Okay, yes, I get it, I am the very zombie likeness of my father with my mother's eyes peering out the sockets, can we get over this?

HARRY: So... Voldemort was a total serial killer from the age of, like, five.
DUMBLEDORE: Dahmer in kneesocks, yes.

LUPIN: NO THEY ARE NOT UP TO ANYTHING HARRY THAT IS RIDICULOUS WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS SO BITTER AND ANGRY????
TONKS: Sweetheart, I told you not to forget your Werewolf Midol.
annafugazzi: (Default)
Not as catchy as The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, but also less likely to leave you with nightmares for a while afterwards. ::shudder::

  1. Except for maybe this item. This is one of the ouchiest things I have read in a long, long time. Must check out more of [livejournal.com profile] nextgendarkfest.

    Hm... is is wrong to read something, hurt down to your soul, and not only want to share it but immediately feel the need to track down more hurty stuff? Hope not.

    A Bite that Never Heals
    Rating: NC-17
    Word Count: ~12,700
    Pairing(s): James/Teddy
    Warnings: mention of chan (James is 16, Teddy is 22), explicit sex, violence, very strong language, mental health issues, implied drug use, BDSM, biting, bondage, blood-play, use of sex toys, perceived spousal abuse, perceived infidelity, mention of minor character death. SPOILERS )
    Summary: People assume that James Potter has everything. But what he really has is a father who won’t get out of bed, an unhelpfully reclusive brother, and the Wizarding World’s answer to Peaches Geldof for a sister. When Teddy Lupin, the only good thing in James’ life, goes missing, how will James cope? And how is his Aunt Hermione involved in Teddy’s disappearance?

  2. I have this quote in my mind, and I think it's from canon, of (I think) one of the twins, saying something like, "A brutal double murder by the groom's mother might put a dent in the festivities." But I can't find it in Deathly Hallows. Does anyone know who says it, and where? Or am I thinking of something from [livejournal.com profile] sarahtales?

  3. I've finally gone and made a list of various translations people have done for my fics (mostly Bond). I think I've got them all. Any multi-tongued folks want to take a look and let me know if I'm missing any?

    Translations )

  4. I've been singing this to myself off and on for days. Thought I'd share the pain joy :)

OK, I had these three great recs for Krumfics, and now I can't find one of them! This is very sad. Thanks for the link, [livejournal.com profile] scabbyfish!

  • In non-rec-related news, I'm almost done my festfic! You know, the one that I thought I'd have to throw out in its entirety because it was basically starry-eyed plagiarism? Of course now I'm utterly paranoid that I've ripped off somebody else's story, but what the hell. There's really only so many plotlines out there, right? Something you write is bound to be similar to something that's already out there. I've said that to others a few times, while calming down other writers who were in the same situation as me right now. One of whom, weirdly, was upset because she'd ripped off something I'd written, which I'd read and really hadn't found all that similar to my fic at all. Go figure.

    Anyway. It's almost done. That's the important part.

  • Also: saw Star Trek! OMFG!! LOVED IT!! And sat through the entire thing thanking GOD I (a) don't much care about canon, in Star Trek or anywhere else, and (b) generally have very low expectations. I could totally picture disemboweling myself within the first five minutes if either of the above were different.

    Speaking of canon, for some bizarre reason I got into a discussion with a RL friend about Deathly Hallows (I didn't even know she'd read HP at all) and ended up with lists titled If I Could Rewrite Deathly Hallows. Her biggest items were that Mad-Eye Moody would've been the only Good Guy death and Neville would've killed Bellatrix Lestrange. My list was a wee bit more extensive. May post about it some other time :)

Happy Easter, to those of you who celebrate it, and Happy Sunday, to those who don't! (And Happy Monday to Australians, New Zealanders, and time warp dwellers.)

Once again, a set of links that defy classification.

  • First off, another Ravenous Romance book review by Jane, for Making a Scene, by Trudy Doyle. This is the same woman who did the review of the book with the squeebing lady-softness and straining codpiece. And she does have more good things to say about this book than she did the previous one. Then again, I think I have more good things to say about Pit of Voles fanfic than she did about the codpiece book. My hypocrisy, let me show you it: every single one of my fics is up on ff.n ;)

    Anyway, here's two excerpts: one from the review and one from the novel itself:

    • Warning - this is an epic review. And by epic, I mean long. And also full of terms like "joy juice" "muff" and "spunk."
    • "Above the semi-wall of my laptop screen, I can see she looks not only at the downslide of her hottiness"


  • Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] fish_echo, found an absolute treasure trove of weird stuff, including this fic. Am not usually terribly fond of AUs, but this one has sucked me in:

    Title: Switch
    Author: [livejournal.com profile] corvidae9
    Rating: G
    Length: 1900 words
    Author's Summary: The Sorting Hat has sorted thousands of students in the course of its life. If it makes a mistake or two, who's to say it's wrong? Certainly not Fred or George Weasley.

    Excerpt: Ron sat next to a weeping girl named Parvati and a clearly unimpressed girl named Pansy, for the most part pole-axed as to how the bloody hell he'd turned out a Ravenclaw.

    "M-m-mum says Ravenclaws don't have time for silly things like nail polish and-and-and giiiirl magazines," she blubbered. "I like girly magazines! I don't want to die alone in a library with a hundred cats! That's Padma's job!"

    Rec: I love watching the events of the books unfold with the main characters in different houses, but I'm even more fascinated by how she takes their canon personalities and... tweaks them, a bit, to show how the kids would act if they believed they were Sorted where they were for a good reason. Cannot decide who I'm loving the most: Slytherin!Hermione or Gryffindor!Crabbe and Goyle.

  • And from [livejournal.com profile] hd_worldcup, which I was kinda bummed to have to miss this year, here's a totally brilliant fic:

    Summary: The truth: logic isn't in the lump in his throat, in his stuttering pulse. He needs the certainty of his name on someone else's lips, which means he needs Malfoy...

    Excerpt: When Harry's gaze swings up to Hogwarts Castle, there's nothing there.

    Summary: It's funny what a bloke can find out if he just keeps his eyes open. Funny, and disturbingly hot, too.
    Excerpt: Plus, I mostly watched Teddy, who, there was nothing wrong with watching him anyway, since he's not even my cousin, even if he sort of is halfway my semi-brother and also he used to be practically engaged to you until he worked out how it was going to be a problem, you not having a cock. Speaking of, by the way, I bet the two of you made a seriously, seriously hot picture.

  • Also, I'm done part 3 of the A Little Unhealthy... any chance one or more folks might want to beta?
annafugazzi: (OMG)
Somehow, and I swear this was not intentional, this turned into a post mostly related to [livejournal.com profile] fourth_rose. B'zuh?

  • But first, a rec: At First Sight, by [livejournal.com profile] aquila_star. Arthur and Molly Weasley, from the very beginning. Yes, I am reccing het. It's just... ::squeee:: It rings so true to the characters, and it's so sweet to see them all young and bright-eyed and not yet able to strike fear into a huuuge horde of red-headed boys.

  • So, [livejournal.com profile] fourth_rose. First off, I was reminded this morning of her [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays e-mail fic, which is frankly hysterical. Go. Read.

  • Second, OMGOMG, she's updated Not In the Hands of Boys. Squeee!

  • And I finally finished a post I started a while ago, prompted by [livejournal.com profile] fourth_rose, who did the opposite of "Top Ten Ways You Know You're Reading a Fic By Me."

    After writing out a few list items I realized that for many of the things I can't/won't write, I sounded rather snooty, like I thought there was something wrong with them. Which isn't the case, mostly. To me, non-writeable-by-me-elements of fic are a little like non-favourite foods, with varying degrees of Not My Thing:

    • Peaches: They're not my favourite fruit and I don't normally use/cook with them myself, but will happily eat them if they are offered.
    • Swiss cheese: Don't get it, avoid eating it, but if drowned out by other stuff I'll swallow with a smile, instead of spitting into a napkin. Think no absolutely ill of others who love it.
    • Blue cheese: Don't get it. Can't eat it. Ick. Others like it; go them. Just... not near me, 'k?
    • Monkey Brain: Don't get it, wrong wrong wrong, wish it did not exist as a food.
