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.

I updated my masterlists with this month's fic, since I don't think I'll be cranking out another one tonight.

game of thrones )

harry potter )

teen wolf )

clue )

Overall, I think I'm happiest with In the Skin, but that might just be because it's Jon/Stannis, and I will ship them in hell. After that, maybe These Walls Were Built to Fall and No Absolution Here.


[livejournal.com profile] pasted is hosting a Themeless Comment Ficathon. Any fandom, any pairing, any prompt, come as you are.


Sometime this week, I would like to see Hansel and Gretel. Also, finish season one of Being Human and read Memory of Light. I've been wary of spoilers for it, because if I find out Mat dies beforehand I probably won't read it, but I'm anxious. It's apparently made [livejournal.com profile] turkeylurkey cry at least twice, and she's not even halfway through it yet.

Insatiable by [livejournal.com profile] rewrites24 [Harry Potter; Remus/Sirius, Regulus/Remus/Sirius, adult]

Look, Regulus/Remus/Sirius is the crack OT3 of my soul. And no one ever writes it, which saddens me deeply, let me tell you. This is wonderful, and bonus points for it being Remus' idea. Well, the threesome is Sirius' idea. Regulus is Remus' idea.

For Those Who Cannot Sleep and And No Rest Shall Ye Find by [personal profile] keelywolfe [The Hobbit; Bilbo/Thorin, adult]

These are hot and angsty and sweet, and Bilbo is delightful.

Mine Over Kingdom and Treasure by [personal profile] victoriousscarf [The Hobbit; Fíli/Kíli, adult]

This is also hot and angsty and sweet, and it jabs my possessive/jealousy kink in all the right places.

The Lion and His Hound by [personal profile] queenklu [The Hobbit; Fíli/Kíli, Fíli/Kíli/Thorin, adult]

Things I never knew I wanted until I was in the middle of reading it: Kíli is basically a life-ruiner, and has no idea.


Lost Years by [personal profile] nisiedrawsstuff [Harry Potter; Remus/Sirius]

Cold Winter at Hogwarts by [personal profile] blanche-black [Harry Potter; Regulus]

Kili was cold by [personal profile] aleenapilyuganov [The Hobbit; Kíli, Thorin]

Night by [personal profile] maxkennedy24 [The Hobbit; Bilbo/Thorin]

A chéneg A ionneg, Le iôn adar lín by [personal profile] fruitscake [The Hobbit; Thranduil, Legolas]

Untitled by [personal profile] palaceofposey [Lord of the Rings; Legolas, Gimli]

Father of the Dwarves by [personal profile] nahar-doa [The Silmarillion; Aüle]

Really? This Again? by [personal profile] daunt [Teen Wolf; Derek/Stiles]

Untitled by [personal profile] candragloomblade [Good Omens; Crowley]

Wheel of Time, Lan by [personal profile] dragoninstall [Wheel of Time; Lan Mandragoran]

Wheel of Time, Mat by [personal profile] dragoninstall [Wheel of Time; Matrim Cauthon]


[livejournal.com profile] marguerite_26 is hosting a 1 Word Prompt Comment Fest.

LJ Is Alive!
A Multifandom LiveJournal Friending Meme
Tumblr is great, but my fandom heart is in LJ.


I only have two posts left for [community profile] snowflake_challenge, but today is 'Write a Love Letter to Fandom' day, and Tumblr and I are still on the outs, so. I'm going to browse the 1 Word prompts instead.

Quick Pimp:

- Prompting is open at [personal profile] dysfuncentine, for all your dysfunctional Harry Potter needs. Closes sometime tonight.

- Prompting is open at [personal profile] hprarefest, for all your Harry Potter rarepair needs. Closes 20 January.


Snowflake Challenge, Day 5

Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or consume different fanworks. Give that new fandom a go. Listen to a podfic or watch some vids if you haven’t before.

I ended up doing this one twice:


Working Girl (Her Real Business is Secrets)
Miss Scarlet (Clue) | teen | ~1,100 words
A motor rumbles in the distance, slightly louder than the thunder rolling overhead. She smooths out the line of her dress, bends over the hood of her car just as a pair of headlights flare through the wet shadows at the end of the road.

I wrote this for [personal profile] fandom_stocking, but I had this challenge in mind when I chose this particular fandom. Clue is a movie I absolutely adore, but I just never got around to writing in it.


Regulus Black, 1961-1979 (photoset)
Sirius Black, arrested 1981 (photoset)

Tumblr is such an image-heavy platform. I'm very jealous of the people who make gorgeous gifs and photosets. I did these two yesterday afternoon, and I'm actually fairly pleased with the result. At least, I like them better than my previous attempts.
xylodemon: (Default)
[community profile] fandom_stocking went live last night! I got several awesome things, including icons and a ficlet IOU.

On the fandom activities front, [livejournal.com profile] blue_eyed_1987 is hosting a Multifandom Pretend Dating/Relationship Fest. I'm already eyeballing one of the prompts; fake boyfriends is one of my favorite tropes.


Snowflake Challenge, Day 4

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.

1. Transformative works of my stuff -- podfic, fanart, photosets, fanmixes. Anything like that.

2. Rumor has it that Gage Golightly isn't returning for season three of Teen Wolf. Someone should really write the filthy Stiles/Erica porn I've been wanting, before fandom ends up fridging her character completely.

3. More American Gods fic, period. I don't care which characters, or what plot/scenarios/tropes. Just more American Gods fic.

odds and ends

The fic I wrote for [personal profile] rs_small_gifts has been posted:

The Great Christmas Biscuit Misunderstanding of 1977 [Remus/Sirius, MWPP, adult]
In which Sirius just wants a bit of fun, James fancies himself awfully clever, Peter won't be brewing any potions, and Remus would rather not get shouted at by McGonagall again, thank you very much.

Also, there's a Holiday Love Meme going on. I threw my name in the hat here.

The stockings are up at [community profile] fandom_stocking. Everything is tagged by fandom. I've got my eye on a couple things, but I haven't started anything yet.

If you've friended me at Dreamwidth and I haven't friended you back, drop me a comment. I got a bunch of notifications at once, and I might've lost someone in the shuffle.
xylodemon: (Default)
It's [community profile] fandom_stocking time again! It's happening at DreamWidth this year, and the Stocking Submission post is here.

Also, Round 12 of [personal profile] asoiafkinkmeme closes tomorrow afternoon, so if you have any extra prompts lying around, now is the time!

[personal profile] hp_unfaithful is doing an advent calender type fest, with not-quite-daily prompts through December. Details here.

Two quick fic recs, of the ASOIAF persuasion:

Despite It All by [livejournal.com profile] fortinbrasftw [Davos/Stannis, PG]

There is not enough fantastic Davos/Stannis fic in the fandom. Not nearly enough. This is pretty much flawless.

Goodbye Means Going Away (And Going Away Means Forgetting) by [livejournal.com profile] lit_chick08 [Rickon, Jon/Sansa, PG]

I could tell you that this fic is about Rickon finally making it back to Winterfell, and he's been gone long enough that he doesn't really remember his family, and his memory tricks him into thinking Jon and Sansa are his parents, but then I wouldn't be doing it justice. It is far more perfect than that.

Other things on the docket today:

- Round 7 of [livejournal.com profile] asoiafkinkmeme closes in a little under 24 hours, so if you've been sitting on a prompt, now is the time to do it.
- Today is the third and final day for the Porn Battle at [livejournal.com profile] gameofships. Prompts can be found here.
- [livejournal.com profile] cinnatart is hosting another Kiss Meme. Any pairing, any fandom, anything goes, as long as the characters kiss.

hello, hello.

I accidentally took a really long nap in the middle of the afternoon, and now I can't sleep UGH.

I've got about seven tabs open at the You Win or You Die Kink Meme. Specifically, I've been eyeballing this fantastic Jon/Robb/Jeyne prompt. I haven't started on it yet, mainly because in my head it's the kind of shameless filth that could strip the paint off the walls, and I just can't write that kind of stuff when everyone else in this house is awake. My mother (in particular) seems to know somehow, and will choose that moment to stand in my doorway and talk about the laundry for twenty minutes.

Speaking of Game of Thrones, I haven't seen the new episode yet. I talked to [personal profile] themostepotente on the phone right after she watched it, and she told me it was short on a lot of the things I'm particularly keen on -- no Robb, no Catelyn, very little Jon and Sam. I spent some of today reading other people's write ups about it, and I've gathered two things; Gwendoline Christie is an utterly flawless Brienne, and the Theon bits will probably hurt large portions of my soul.

in which i talk about my boyfriend theon greyjoy, to absolutely no one's surprise, i'm pretty sure. also, long opinions are long )

I told you long opinions are long. WTF, BRAIN.


In other news, I finally finished my Remix. Just under the wire, and I managed to crank out something I'm actually happy with. I'm pretty sure that obvious anonymous fic will be obvious, but my general state of anonfail at fic exchanges is a chronic condition.

If you missed Remix signups and would still like to participate, check out the opt-in post for Remix Madness.

Also, if you've friended me on Pottermore, drop me a comment and let me know who you are, so I can get nicknames sorted.
xylodemon: (Default)
I keep telling myself I'm done with the GoT Kink Meme, but I also keep finding prompts that demand my attention. Like this Robb/Theon tattoo!kink prompt that has been haunting my sleep. I want this fic in my life. Badly. At this point, I think I haven't written it because I don't trust my own brain. Instead of shameless inkporn, I'd probably end up with something along the lines of my 4,000 word fill with not too much steamy porn but a lot of pining, fapping, and creepy internal monologues about possession (I'm looking at you, Robb); let me show you it.

Speaking of Game of Thrones, [livejournal.com profile] workswithwords is hosting a Robert's Rebellion comment ficathon, for all your pre-canon character/shipping needs. Which, yes. As much as I love reading and writing about the younger characters, there is also a gaping hole in my life where all the Ned/Catelyn first time/early marriage/curtain fic should be.

Also, sign-ups for the next [livejournal.com profile] got_exchange are open until next Sunday. I'm slowly bullying [personal profile] themostepotente into doing it.

As far as the Game of Thrones tv show goes, season two starts tonight, and I'm still... divided. I'm upset that I won't be able to watch it as it airs, because season one was amazing, but at the same time, I'm kind of relieved that I can put off watching Theon destroy my soul for another year. I was telling [personal profile] themostepotente on the phone last night1 that I recently looked at some screencaps from the season two trailers and featurettes, and there was one that nearly killed me, because it pinpointed the exact moment when the tv!fandom will turn on Theon like a pack of cannibals.

I finally got my [personal profile] hp_beholder fic sorted, two days after the deadline. I now need to worry about [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen and Remix.

The last two years I did remix, I ended up with a finished product I actually liked, but I had a really hard time getting there. This time, my Remix fic is practically writing itself, which is awesome, because I'm pretty sure my [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen fic wants me to die in a fire. Which is weird, because my assignment is more or less exactly what I asked for.

[livejournal.com profile] frontbits is coming over shortly. I do hope she brings tacos.

1 I probably should have some kind of macro/keyboard shortcut for this phrase, at this point.

A few drive-by recs, while I wait for a fic to get back from beta.

Where You Run To, I'll Go Glistening by [personal profile] eternal_elenea Robb/Theon, R

This is a kink meme fill for a prompt about desperate/urgent sex and Theon getting off on rainstorms -- and it has all of that, UNF -- but it's also a story about these to growing up together and belonging to each other even though Theon doesn't quite belong. The prose here is just beautiful.

Faces and Names by [personal profile] lainemontgomery Ned/Cersei + Robert, R

I saw this when it was still at the kink meme -- in fact, it's probably the reason I ended up filling a Ned/Cersei prompt, because it was one of those pairing I didn't know I wanted until I read it. Then, I thought Oh. Of course. Cersei's POV is wonderful, and this has some deliciously wrong Ned/Robert undertones, in that you can't quite tell if Robert wants Ned for Ned, or if he's really just using him as a replacement for Lyanna.

waiting for you to hurt me by [personal profile] miranatural Robb/Theon, R [bloodkink]

This is another kink meme fill. I almost didn't read it, because bloodkink isn't really my thing, but the dynamic in the prompt was interesting -- that Theon isn't really into it, but Robb really, really is -- and this turned into a fantastically twisted look into Theon's headspace.

we keep you in our bones by [personal profile] honey_wheeler Jon/Jeyne W, Jon/Robb, Robb/Jeyne W, R

This is glorious. I ship these two pretty hard, in a picking up the pieces Robb left behind kind of way, and this is explores that perfectly, touches on all the ghosts in their bed, and when I was finished with this, all I could really do was wave my hands and say ♥JON♥ repeatedly.


Also, [livejournal.com profile] got_exchange is having sign-ups for its next exchange.

Go forth and participate! The community is locked, so you'll have to join it to sign up.


Since I'm posting anyway, I'll go ahead and do today's [livejournal.com profile] fannish5:

Top 5 movies of 2012 that you are looking forward to, whether they are in theaters already or not.

2. The Hunger Games
3. The Avengers
4. Dark Shadows
5. (there was supposed to be a movie about Bonnie and Clyde coming out this year, which I was really excited about, but it seems to have disappeared from IMDB. *weeps*)

Someone needs to take the internet away from me. I have a house to clean and fic to write and a new job to find, but I keep getting distracted by all the shiny things the internet has to offer, like the fuckyeahkitharington Tumblr, or the Game of Thrones kink meme. There are still a lot of awesome prompts open -- I seriously have about six comment tabs open, so I can come back to them once I've finished all the stuff I should be writing -- so someone should get over there and write one of the Margaery/Sansa prompts so I don't have to.

I did crank out about a thousand words of Ned Stark/Cersei Lannister cunnilingus smut last night, where Ned is plotting against her while he's doing it, and it's set in the godswood at King's Landing, because I am ridiculous, and godswoods are apparently my Game of Thrones answer to broom cupboards.

Ugh. I need to do my laundry and drive my mother to the grocery store, and stop eyeballing this Jon/Theon prompt for Robb!related hatesex.

i am excite!

Well, I don't think I've ever had the honor of writing the worst story someone has ever read. Kind of makes me warm and fuzzy all over, unless that's just the gin in my tea.

In much more exciting news, Remix Redux 10 is open for business. Sign-ups are here. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS, I CANNOT EVEN TELL YOU.

Also, I read the Hunger Games books this weekend.

All right. Time for bed.

[personal profile] snegurochka_lee is hosting a Fic Recommendation Swap over on LJ.

The idea is, people comment with something they'd like to read, and you reply with a recommendation from the anonymous holiday exchanges happening now.

Harry Potter only, kids.

Go forth! Rec a holiday fest fic you loved, and find something new to read!
