So [livejournal.com profile] femslash11 is concluding. It’s a lovely cross-fandom fest, that always turns out good-quality femmeslash from often very tiny fandoms or rare pairings. The fic I got was a case in point: it was Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen fic! Lola/Ella fic! *gleeeeeeeeeeee*

All The World’s A Stage by [livejournal.com profile] sadieflood. You guys! Everyone’s so IC. It’s mostly from Ella’s POV and it’s perfect - I love the parts with her parents. The set-up is that Lola is thrilled to hear that everyone thinks she and Ella are going out, but is disappointed by the lack of controversy. She is selfish, but so charming, and you can really see why Ella likes her so much, even as she’s kind of crushing Ella to bits with her attempts to get rumours flying about their ‘relationship’.

And they go to the junior prom together and there is a totally adorable happy ending :DDD

Now for some other recs, from various fandoms )

Funny how fast things can change! My last post was all sadface, and now two different brilliant things have happened for me in fandom.

Well, the second especially isn’t ‘for me’ as such. But it makes me so happy that it feels like it is.

The first is a super-gorgeous Snaco commission for me, by [livejournal.com profile] ships_harry. I don’t want to do a big gushing rec before she’s posted it, because it seems unfair on the Snaco-loving portions of my flist and not a very useful sort of rec. But :DDDDDDDD

The second, is that the brilliant [livejournal.com profile] bleedforyou1 did a wonderful podfic of my fic Honey. Honey was my first one-shot, and for all its incredible fluffiness and its flaws I remember it fondly :D And having someone else take it up and do something cool and creative with it is lovely.

Bleedy did such a fantastic job, too! Her voice is all smooth and lovely to listen to, and she puts emotion into the dialogue without ever over-acting, and her Draco voice especially made me laugh. It is seriously so good.

AND she commissioned [livejournal.com profile] quimvaa to do cover-art for the podfic! I have mad love for [livejournal.com profile] quimvaa’s art, it’s so dynamic and brilliant and so very much *Harry* and *Draco*. So seeing an illustration of a moment in Honey by her just makes me so happy :)

Writer’s block has hit me like a train. Not surprising, really; Miss Godfrey and Violet both went home this morning. More importantly for writer’s-block-causing, this has been a stressful week essay-wise, and since I have a big Medieval project and my dissertation due in less than a month, it’s not going to ease off quickly.

And [livejournal.com profile] diacon_alley is coming up - which is a source of great excitement, but also effort!

Anyway: writing is far from the only way one can contribute to fandom, so in that spirit, here are the two [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom recs I’ve posted so far this month.

Custard Tarts for the Tart by [livejournal.com profile] iamisaac (Severus/Draco, 2500 words, NC-17.)
After the war, there are precious few jobs going for ex-Death-Eaters. War-hero Severus, however, finds one for Draco...

This is short, elegant, and utterly engrossing.

It was written for a “catamites” challenge at Daily Deviant, but takes a very different tack from the one you might expect. This Draco isn’t a mistreated, virginal woobie; but neither is he an effortlessly beautiful, charming, superlatively skilled young whore. He’s never brought Snape to orgasm with his mouth alone, and he has to try hard to keep his figure.

He’s Snape’s catamite, and is very aware of his status. It’s a job, despite his feelings for Snape, despite what the world believes; and he must do it well or he’ll be out on the street. But - of course - he loves Snape.

Snape looms over every line of this fic, but even when he appears ‘on screen’ it’s unclear what he feels for Draco. And that works wonderfully: this fic is deep into Draco’s POV, and not only is he unsure of Snape’s feelings, he’s not really concerned with them. He has to focus on pleasing Snape, on being pleasing, for both material and emotional self-protection.

A fic with this premise could be so overblown and melodramatic; instead it’s an elegant, wonderfully characterised snippet of hearbreak.

Snape and Draco by [livejournal.com profile] glockgal (Severus/Draco, G.)

IT’S REALLY CUTE. I know Snaco is meant to be the cool ship, you know, with fuckloads of angst and Gothic identity crises and kinky kinky sex. But whatever, I am confessing to my love of Snaco fluff. And this is just so cute and I flail at it and beam at it and OH DRACO’S BLUSH.

It’s a G-rated little comic, with an extremely cute, funny, recognisable Snape and Draco. And totally worth checking out just for Snape’s changing expressions as Draco is SUPER-STEALTHY.

OMG, you guys, your answers to the ‘how we met’ meme are killing me. FANTASTIC.

It helps with the knowledge that with my laptop may have gone around 2.5k of a 12k fic I was working on. RAWR NO. Those were good words! And I can’t find where I originally fit them into the narrative! *frustrated*

Oh well… Jae wrote me a continuance of her Indulgence arc, Indulgence 4, as thanks for beta-ing a fic, and it’s fucking hot. I have a bit of a kink for somnophilia, but only when it’s played a certain way, and that certain way is all over this arc. Draco responds even in sleep! There’s a bit where he wakes up and is all OMG NO! Harry has all this mystic-vampire-sexy and I don’t find it annoying, it’s a bloody miracle!

Another rec for the Ron/Draco fans: OMG HOW IS THIS ART SO CUTE. SO SO CUTE. Oh Draco’s all squished and his LITTLE PINK NOSE and SAD FACE and Ron's untucked shirt and his HAIR and "I can't" and OMGGGG. [livejournal.com profile] ineslee brings the adorable.

Tomorrow is the dinner with parents. Boooo. On the other hand, the day after tomorrow I get to be in London, see people I haven’t seen for months, and dress up as Loki. I am going to eyeliner myself some evil eyebrows, it’s very exciting.

Title: Green
Word count: 100
Characters/pairings: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Green isn’t Draco’s favourite colour because of Harry’s eyes.
Warnings: References to D/s, spanking, blindfolds and face-slapping, but all very brief ones; fluff
Disclaimer: The boys belong to JKR, even though I’m often much nicer to them than she is.
Author’s Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] dracoharry100’s old green prompt. In a kink scene, the ‘traffic light’ system of safewords is often used: Red means stop right now, yellow means we’re okay but ease off that thing you’re doing, and green means go.

I’m starting to hear increased buzz about Diacon Alley... so excited!

Two recs:

Check out [profile] graduate_maria, a comm to help an LJ user get through her final semester (more details, including checking-out details, at the comm). Some truly fantastic photography is up for grabs, as well as fics and a rainbow rocking horse.

Seriously, you guys, you must read [personal profile] treacle_tartlet’s [profile] hd_parallel fic, What Else Had I To Do But Love You? The fact that the title is an Oscar Wilde quote tells you everything you need to know: this is funny, charming, and has a witty, gay dilettante taking it up the arse from a secret-inheritance-having labourer named Harry Potter. It’s like a cross between The Importance of Being Earnest, Lady Chatterley’s Lover and A Little Princess.

Generally non-magic AUs are the one kind of fic I am guaranteed not to read, and AUs in general are not my thing. I especially avoid Victorian AUs because let’s face it, the more British among us do not always want to read about bloody Victorian London where it is somehow always Christmas and photogenic orphans are shivering in the snow.

This one’s set in Wiltshire, not London, because this Draco has been banned from the London social whirl – and Wilde and his crowd – by an incensed Lucius. He hangs about watching gardener!Harry work, and they fall in love despite the disapproval of Lucius and Reverend Snape. It’s a very simple and romantic story, with true love conquering all, and it is hilarious. [personal profile] treacle_tartlet has a hundred funny turns of phrase, and the banter is FANTASTIC. It’s ~6k and it seemed to vanish in a moment, leaving me with a grin on my face.

I am so painfully behind on my fic masterlists, you guys. I haven’t updated them in months.

...Oh well! I am going to rec some telly. Which is, to my knowledge, only on in the UK (Channel 4, Saturday night) and very new. Never mind.

It’s called Misfits and I think it’s the new Being Human. The set-up is thus: five young offenders on community service get caught in an electrical storm and they end up with supernatural powers. Their parole officer is caught in it too, basically goes nuts and tries to kill them, getting the sixth YO – conveniently, the one without powers. The Misfits kill him off in self-defence, and agree to hide what happened.

I’ve never been much into the whole We Must Give The Young People Characters They Can Identify With thing )
