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 was thinking earlier that fandom needs more ridiculous Harry/Draco accidental marriage fics. A botched potion starts it, or a weirdly rebounded spell, or maybe Draco says a combination of words that happens to be an ancient pureblood mating ritual that dates back to the conquest of Gaul. However it happens, Wizarding law also requires that married couples cohabitate, so they end up living in Draco's huge art deco flat, and Harry is mostly stoic about the whole thing, but Draco complains a lot, possibly because Harry is the messiest person alive, and when they finally do have sex it's kind of awkward and laughable, and Draco still complains a lot, because Harry is heavy, and sweaty, and so on.

I got my Remix/Redux assignment last night! I was a little nervous at first, because I'm not all that familiar with my Remixee, but I scrolled through her fic list, and she's definitely given me enough to work with. I glanced at two or three things I really, really like, so now I'm more excitedly optimistic. I just need to figure out how I'm going to go about things. In 2007 I took a shorter piece and spun it into something longer, and in 2008 I did that and I shifted the POV, which ended up being a lot of fun for me, because the original ficlet was about 400 adorable words of Lily shouting at James for pulling a prank on her, so I got to pull the whole MWPP ensemble into it, and sketch the prank out from the beginning.

I also like what [personal profile] laurificus did when she remixed A Marauder's Map a few years back -- she took one of the vignettes and expanded it into an entire fic, which was awesome to read, because it put a whole new perspective on the scene, and it also had more Regulus than my original version, and I firmly believe everything should have more Regulus.

While we're on the subject:

Dear Remixer,

I would like to start out by apologizing for the rather unwieldly state of my masterlist. I've written a ton of Harry Potter fics over the last eight years, so that section can be a lot to look at all at once. Everything is also available at AO3, where you can at least sort through all of it by pairing, or something.

I would also like to apologize for my obvious and frankly worrying broom cupboard fetish, and the fact that all my MWPP fics are really about Sirius, even the ones that weren't meant to be.

That being said, feel free to do whatever you like! ♥

Well. Onward to my [personal profile] hp_beholder. I'm going to finish it today, God willing and the creek don't rise, and all that.

First of all: YOU GUYS. <3

I just wanted to thank everyone who commented to the post I made about my dad. He died almost a year ago (Feb 22), and I've reached a point where I'm mostly okay, unless I'm not okay, and then I'm very, very not okay. I was going to answer them individually, but I was terrified I'd start crying again. Just know they were exactly what I needed, exactly when I needed it. ♥♥♥♥♥!!!

The problem with writing again after such a long break is that I suddenly want to write ALL THE THINGS. I just finished [livejournal.com profile] dysfuncentine and [livejournal.com profile] sirius_black, and I've got assignments for both [personal profile] hp_beholder and [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen, and yet I'm still creeping the claims posts of various prompt fests, looking for something that needs to be written.

Speaking of need -- the Harry Potter fandom absolutely requires an OotP AU where Regulus has survived and ends up working for the Order.

I'm thinking it would start early in the book's timeline, maybe right after Harry and Sirius' bittersauce conversation about the Black Family Tree. Dumbledore shows up to 12GP one night, ridiculously late, because Dumbledore is a badass and manners are for amateurs, and he has this guy with him, who is thin and scraggly and quiet, but who also looks a good deal like Sirius. Harry is really confused, and maybe capslocks a little, and Remus mostly looks like he's been slapped with a fish, but Sirius is completely fucking hysterical, like he nearly knocks over the kitchen table in his haste to hex Regulus back into the 70's, and there's a lot of shouting, until Dumbledore puts an end to the whole farce with a Shield Charm that's incredibly terrifying. Regulus tells everyone what happened, and his story is pretty much the same one we get from Kreacher in DH, except the part where Kreacher leaves Regulus in the cave, because Kreacher just couldn't do it, leave Master Regulus like that, with those hands, so he elf!Apparated Regulus out of there, and Regulus went into hiding, maybe with his Aunt Lucretia, or -- better yet -- Dumbledore (who's known all along, the meddlesome bastard) found a way to slip him into Azkaban, because no one would look for him there, obviously, so he was down the hall from Sirius the whole time. After that it's all awkward conversations and heavy silences, because Blacks just weren't bred to say I'm sorry, and Harry is still really confused, but he capslocks less, because Regulus is kind of nice to him.

I'm only vaguely interested in writing it, but if one of the usual suspects ([personal profile] midnitemarauder, [personal profile] snegurochka_lee, I'm looking at you) ended up writing it, I'd read the hell out of it. Bonus points if it devolves into Harry/Regulus or Harry/Regulus/Sirius.

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] dysfuncentine started posting! I'm pretty sure I won't actually anonfail this time. Okay, only half-sure.

Day 7

Create a list of at least three fannish things you'd like to receive


The Vintner's Luck:

I would love for this book to have a fandom, period. I understand a terrible movie was made from it, but I haven't seen it, therefore it doesn't exist. I cannot tell you how excited I was to see this posted at [personal profile] yuletide; believe me when I tell you it made my afternoon.

I know Xas is supposed to be the book's true focus, but I ship Baptiste/Sobran so hard. I just can't help it. I guess all the MWPP fics I've written have left me with an incurable soft spot for best friends who stray over the line out of awkward curiosity. I'm sure that's how I'm supposed to read it -- that their past relationship came down to teenage experimentation, or whatever, but I can't shake the feeling tha there was something more to it, at least on Sobran's end. I mean, he followed Baptiste into a warzone.

I've love to see something that explores their early relationship, or the time they spent in Napoleon's army.

Boondock Saints

I've always wanted to read a BDS fic set in Los Angeles. And I don't mean that they drive out to Santa Monica or Venice and stare at the water for a few paragraphs, then shoot a couple of drug pushers while getting suntans. I'm taking about something set in Los Angeles. I'd love for it to have a real pulp fiction/film noir feel to it -- something harsh and gritty and familiar with the seedy Hollywood landscape.

Like, maybe they come out to Los Angeles looking for a specific target. But they can't find him right away, or they have a very difficult time getting close enough to take him out, so they have to hang around for awhile. They end up renting a room in one of those ridiculous weekly hotels off Sunset, and they maybe spend a little to much time drinking in the local bars, because the waiting and watching is fraying on their nerves. And they start to forget why they came out to Los Angeles in the first place, and they have to bring each other back into focus.

Preferably through sweaty, semi-public sex.

Harry Potter

I want two things, here.

Firstly, I want a good, plotty fic that explains Peter Pettigrew's defection. I mean, something that really explains it. And I want a fairly plausible explanation, too -- something that doesn't just boil down to awkward and fumbling teenage sexual relationships. I just don't think Peter joined up with Voldemort because James (or Lily) wouldn't sleep with him, or because he was hot for Snape (or Regulus, or Tom Riddle).

Lastly, I want some shameless James/Regulus Quidditch smut. Seriously shameless. I want it so terribly that I've tried to write it myself about three times, but I've always given it up as a bad job and few hundred words in. I just don't trust myself with the material. The thing is, I really want it to be about James and Regulus and only James and Regulus, and at the end of the day, all my MWPP fics are really about Sirius.
xylodemon: (pink.)
Here, have some reading material.

- Sleeping in the Devil’s Bed, by anon. Sirius/Narcissa, NC-17

My love for this fic cannot be textually rendered. The porn is smoking hot, but that's not even the point. It's a bonus. This has a very honest and clever Narcissa POV, and Sirius is just briliiant -- reckless, cavalier, brash, foul-mouthed, and overtly sexual even in mundane situations. This also gets extra credit for an awesome Remus cameo, and also mention of Sirius' flying motorbike, something I feel is sorely neglected.

- Good Will, by [personal profile] so_jayded. Remus/Sirius, PG-13

This is very cute. It's a Remus/Sirius story, but it's really about James, and how he figures out Remus and Sirius are together long before anyone tells him. I have a lot of crazy personal canon about the Marauders (you're all shocked, I know), but one thing I really, honestly believe about them is that a lot of things went without saying, because it didn't need to be said, because they knew each other so well and loved each other so much that they really could communicate and read each other with just gestures and smiles and quirked eyebrows.

Yes, even Peter.

Speaking of Peter, [personal profile] snegurochka_lee and [personal profile] fluffyllama are both trying to trick me into writing Peter Pettigrew fic. Sigh. I'm not necessarily apposed to the idea, I just don't have time right now. I have a couple things I want to write for [personal profile] fandom_stocking, and I'm considering writing some smut for the [personal profile] rs_small_gifts bonus round, and I also have an American Gods fic 1 simmering in the back of my brain, so.

And I'm probably not going to tackle any of that tonight. I had a terrible, terrible day at work, and my feet hurt, and I'm pretty sure that the only thing in my immediate future is a large glass of gin and a long nap.


1 This one is [personal profile] gehayi's fault, even though she probably doesn't realize it, and if I actually do end up writing it, I will totally blame her in the headers.
