Quick Recs:

A Heavy Heart to Carry by [livejournal.com profile] luna_plath [ASOIAF; Jon/Theon, adult]

This is an AU where Jon doesn't go to the Wall and Theon doesn't go back to Pyke and every bit of it is flawless.

With a Direwolf as His Shadow by [livejournal.com profile] emynithilien [Sam/Gilly, Jon/Stannis, teen]

This is my [personal profile] got_exchange gift, and I absolutely love it. It's everything I wanted in a future/post-ADWD Sam fic, with bonus points for Jon and Stannis navigating a perfect dynamic somewhere between 'respected collegues' and 'secret boyfriends.' You have to join the community to read it, but its totally worth it.


[personal profile] kalakirya has podficced my Harry Potter/Good Omens crossover, Once More with Feeling.

Also, if you haven't checked out Your Cheatin' Heart - a love affair ficathon, do it now! There are still tons of prompts, in several different fandoms.

So, [personal profile] adistantsun also did [personal profile] winterwolfstarwank, but we were on different teams, so I didn't know what she was up to. Turns out, she was recording awesome podfic for one of my stories.

25 Random Facts About Regulus Black, read by [personal profile] adistantsun



Snowflake Challenge, Day 9

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something.

Last year I wrote a fic for this day's challenge, so I thought I'd write a fic again this year, but [livejournal.com profile] frontbits came over and I made a huge pot of vegetable soup, and ate it while browsing random photo tags at Tumblr, and in the middle of a vintage kick we started talking about American Gods, and so this happened instead:

Every Ending is a New Beginning (photoset)

So, [personal profile] rs_small_gifts went live today, and my totally awesome gift was one of the first things posted.

Look, I am a selfish, grabby person, and I love transformative works. Earlier this year, [livejournal.com profile] adistantsun did a podfic reading of 41 Random Facts About James Potter. It was absolutely brilliant, so when I saw she'd signed up for [personal profile] rs_small_gifts, I put podfic down as one of my three requests, secretly hoping she would pick me.

And she did! ♥♥♥♥♥

She went with Unexpected Visits in the Wintertime, the fic I wrote for [personal profile] rs_small_gifts last year. I have a huge sentimental attachment to this story, because writing it basically kept me in fandom -- I picked up a pinch-hit for [personal profile] rs_small_gifts last year on a whim, after a nearly two year hiatus, and I had a hard time with it at first, because I'd been out of service so long I'd almost forgotten how, but once I got it finished, it made me want to keep writing.

Enough waffle. Go listen to [livejournal.com profile] adistantsun's brilliant reading of Unexpected Visits. Streaming and DL links for .mp3 and .m4b are available here.

So, roughly a hundred years ago, I wrote Time is What You Make It, a total PWP wherein a Time-Turner incident results in Harry having a threesome with Regulus and Sirius.

Well, my Remixer went and turned it into an actual story!

Time is What You Make It (the King of Pain Remix) by anon. [Regulus/Sirius, adultish]

This is fantastic in ways I can't even explain. It sketches out the Regulus/Sirius relationship, something that was handwaved already established in the original story, and their dynamic is exactly perfect -- they are completely screwed up, but they can't stay away from each other, and also understand each other in ways people outside the family can't.

I am about 99% sure I know who wrote this. The prose is very familiar, but I also think it's someone who knows me, because this fic was written in a way that pushes all of my buttons.
