wook77: (kotor: lecture)
Day 3 of NaBloPoMo. I found about 8billion thinkythought posts on an external harddrive and, thus, am now posting them to keep this baby going.

Exchange Sign-Ups – Fandom's version of Mongolian BBQ


I'll admit it, I'm one of the crazy-assed bitches that give WAY too much information in a sign-up for an exchange. I'll list out fifty kinks, twenty desired scenarios and about 50 squicks so I'm rather biased in my interpretation of how exchange sign-ups should work.

There's a reason for my level of detail. I don't trust anyone (see above crazy-assed bitch comment). I don't trust you, my assigned prompt fulfiller, to know that clones, baby oil and the phrase "dripping folds" are major squicks for me without me telling you. Why don't I trust you? Because I don't trust the mods to assign my BFFs to write for me and, thus, you're probably a stranger/acquaintance. Why don't I trust the mods? Because it's not their job to only assign my BFFs to write for me. Their job is to make matches based on about a billion things and hope that something inspires.

So I figure, from the get-go, that someone that I don't know is going to be writing/drawing for me. I assume, from the minute I start to sign-up for an exchange, that you know only what is on that sign-up, that you aren't going to do any further research, and I fill it out accordingly. I give loads of kinks, lots of scenarios that will make me happy and tons of things that send me running for the hills. That way, you'll know, going into it, what I like and don't like. I make certain that there are both art-friendly and fic-friendly kinks and scenarios because I love and adore receiving art.

(side note from the main point, if you say you don't mind receiving art, throw the artists a bone and give them something to work with, plzkthx. I can only imagine how hard it has to be to only see fic-related prompts/requests and tweak that to art.)

[livejournal.com profile] hp_yule_balls opened with a HUGE bang. Sweet Holidays is an AWESOME piece of NSFW artwork with Teddy/James II. I'm not one for the next gen cause, let's face it, they're just names in the books with barely a personality. But omg. This artwork. Dude. Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuudddddeeeeeee. Hot. Teddy has this amazing nose ring that I cannot stop staring at.

Then there's The Dragon and the Pygmy Puff - Charlie/Harry and about 30k. It hits my tattoo kink HARDCORE. The story really fleshes out Charlie. It's got a lot of tell and "as you know, bob" exposition but it's worth a read if just for the smoking hot tattoos and the way they interact and interesting concepts of wizarding tattoos. Charlie isn't just the Weasleyslut here. He's got depth and awesomeness. It's a great story. Did I mention the tattoo licking? There's tattoo licking. Lots of tattoo licking.

Two very good pieces so far. I have high hopes for the rest of the fest. and my gift.

I solemnly swear that I'm now working on my [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts. It's only due in, err, 5 days.

I know I don't have many het fans on the flist BUT... I have GOT to rec a fic from [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus.

I am, of course, still in love with my gift!fic.

However, this fic - What Makes All The Difference (Seamus/Padma, rated: r and is a long one) is absolutely brilliant. This is the 7th Year story I've been waiting to read. It's got an amazing characterization of Seamus (with Finnigan spelled properly, too! It's the small things that sometimes make or break a fic), a brilliant empathetic, scared and human Padma and a wibbly about leadership Neville. I adore the way that the story moves along, the little situations that crop up, the little rebellions and how not everyone is able to rebel. It shows the good parts of almost all the houses (let's face it, it's a rare day where a Slytherin is shown in a good light, unfortunately).

I love this story because Padma isn't just some brain like I've read far too many Ravenclaw characters portrayed as. Instead, she's a girl, a sometimes silly girl that giggles and cares about her looks or whatever. She's just spot-on, a beautiful mix of brains and beauty.

Seamus is just brilliant as well. He's rebellious and loyal and courageous. I am so in love with the way that he stands up to the Carrows, grinning and bearing the problems.

Neville steps up, as well, but not without wondering if he can do it. The Neville in this story was very similar to the Neville in the one that I received in that he had fears but he faced them and did an amazing job at it.

The flirtations and the pacing of the story is just about perfect as well. Seriously and utterly brilliant as a story. Go read it, even if you don't like het. Just skip the naughty bits (of which, there isn't all that many). This is mainly a gen story with the romance as a sideline.

I utterly and completely adore this story.

And now that I've rec'd this - bed.

Before I head in to work (sans shower due to this fic), you all simply must go read the story I received at smutty_claus on journalfen. War Wounds which is Neville/Lavender. OMG, I'm aflail. I requested the pairing on a lark. To be honest, I needed a third pairing in my request and, after scrambling, I thought, huh, well, Neville/Lavender then. This story is post-DH and is simply made of win. The way that the mystery author has characterised Neville and Lavender, the way they deal with their insecurities and the scars (SCAR LICKING, did I mention it had scar licking?) and Neville's sudden-ish popularity, everything about this story is made of win.

They're not perfect in the story, they're real. Neville isn't hung like a horse and Lavender isn't so amazing that she might as well be a Veela. The sex is fumbly first time and it's brilliant, absolutely brilliant because it's hot just the way it is.

There was even a quick cameo mention of Seamus!

This author totally hit all of my favorite kinks (and, dude, I was only expecting like one of them let alone almost all of them). Heck, she/he even hit my secret kink of handholding! This is just absolutely brilliant beyond words and takes me straight into flail mode.

Please go read and tell the mystery author how much you love it!

Dude, I've been getting so lucky on festfics! I'm not sure what I did to deserve all the shiny but whatever it is, I really want to know so I can keep it up. This is, at least, two in a row! Last time was Observances by [livejournal.com profile] acromantular and now this one! I cannot wait to find out who this is so I can shamelessly fangirl them.

[livejournal.com profile] slash_friday's first prompt has been posted here!

Go join, you know you want to.

In other news, the browser thing didn't work but the pop forwarding worked like a charm. I hear I was getting email even while some of the rest of you weren't.

Work is work... I've finished projects up that I've avoided for two years. I'm seriously out of work. It's very sad. I'm bringing in movies to entertain me tomorrow, though, especially as my most lovely email companion is leaving me.

I have so many reviews to post for my resolution 100 but I left them at work. I also left my whole table and post for a fest that [livejournal.com profile] hd_falling is going to be having. My thumb drive is currently really really ghetto and so I handled it with so much care that I left it at my desk. I'm praying that it holds together until Saturday when I can go get my new one at Best Buy. It's seriously wrapped in duct tape to keep the pieces together.

OOOOHHHH AND!!!!! [livejournal.com profile] acejillian (aka George) pwns my soul. She wrote me that awesome Deamus at [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut YAYES!!!!!

I'm going to be posting the one I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] acromantular sometime this weekend. She was a very gracious recipient and a joy to write for (unlike myself, I'm sure).

On that note - a little aside )

Moving along from that situation that has been bugging me - I also wrote smut that I was going to use for something special at [livejournal.com profile] daily_deviant but then I felt that it didn't fit the requirements so I'll be posting that separately and, of course, I wrote something else entirely for the something special instead.

Random ramblings as I'm bored at work and I need to remind myself that today will eventually end and that I have plenty to be doing that's not even work related -

cut for the uninterested )
Speaking of a photoshop sort of thing, I've been playing with it and I made a few things. To the graphics people on my flist especially but really everyone - wanna give me some concrit? I know there are things off but I'd love to hear your opinions on them.

they're under here )
Do you all have favourite tutorials you could link me to? Some hints/tips you've discovered on your own? I know some of you make brilliant things (I'm looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] elethoniel, [livejournal.com profile] irrevokable and [livejournal.com profile] mortenvida especially) so I really respect your opinions.

Finally - as that barely alleviated the boredom - do you all have a favourite story of yours that you'd like to pimp? A fantabulous piece of artwork you've done? There are so many new people on my flist and I'd love to see what you think represents you in your opinion. A favourite song? A favourite graphic? A favourite photo? A favourite book? A favourite movie?

Pimp it all to me please.

Woke up today to no water at the house I'm sitting out. It seems that the main pipes froze last night (we were SUPER cold last night). So, no shower for me *icks*. I had to go buy bottled water for the puppies and cats so that there's something for them to drink because, of course, the way I found out there was no water was that I went to fill the dogs' dishes.

Got my [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen assignment and I couldn't have asked for a better challenge and assignment! YAYES!!!

Signed up for [livejournal.com profile] hpslashnotsmut where, btw, sign-ups are still open.

Thank God I got an extension for my [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut as I'm finally finishing the wrangling into place. [livejournal.com profile] corvidae9 is a brilliant mod and I worship her for the extension *worships*.

[livejournal.com profile] slashfest will be opening the mini round soon... gotta finish getting ready for that.

Work is crazy, am trying desperately to finish all my year end crap by January 31st. We're also migrating payroll systems from one company to another so that's a wee bit stressful as well.

Finally - a couple of book reviews (same disclaimers and spoilers abound):

I, like everyone else on my flist basically, signed up for [livejournal.com profile] merry_smutmas but considering that I'm the 95th person to sign up and that there are probably going to be another gadzillion people signing up, I highly doubt I'm going to get picked to participate.

That's ok though cause the next thing I'm signing up for is [livejournal.com profile] hp_springsmut and one of the valentine's exchanges (probably [livejournal.com profile] corvidae9's [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut.

I want to write for me for now. Haven't done that since February, really.

I'm writing Monaboyd instead of X-men slash for the Friday Fuckfest or whatever it is that [livejournal.com profile] anael and her evil enabling cohorts of doom have decided it was but it will probably be posted on Saturday or Sunday. *woe* and fails at deadlines.

Am going to a Ringers event tomorrow. Meeting people for breakfast and then watching all three movies back to back. Found one girl who reads/writes Monaboyd but not on lj (that's changing under my influence) and we shall perv together.

Ok - a real update on my life - I've been going to the gym really steadily for two weeks, watching what I eat, not really cheating or anything (ok, so I had some french fries and a vanilla frosty :P) and how much weight have I lost? NONE! I've GAINED a sodding pound. This is complete bullshit.

This post was generally pointless, wasn't it?

First - please to be excusing typos (and rambling) here. I've just taken my night-time painkillers and my brain is mush but I have to get this out...

A while back, back when I was basically a n00b to fandom, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] slashfest and claimed something by [livejournal.com profile] furiosity. The story that came out of it is Hands that I was and still am fairly proud of. It was one of the first things I ever had rec'd in a newsletter and I still have the issue bookmarked (yes, ok, I'm a dork).

Fast forward to [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix where I didn't list any safe stories. I put my faith in the other writers and decided to let them have free reign/rein/rain (sod it if I can remember which one I mean right now). If I had picked safe stories, there were two that I would have chosen - Hands and Moments.

The Months of Poker in Manchester takes Hands and improves it so very much that I really can't claim the original because the remix is so much more than anything I could possibly have ever written. I'm so very glad I didn't pick any safe stories. I would have hated to miss out on this.

The story is sharp, witty, and amazing. I pinged quite a few people on my flist begging for help in what to say because, honestly, all I could think was "fucking brilliant". This truly is fucking brilliant and you seriously will not be disappointed in it.

There are so many little details that the anonymous author has incorporated in here to make this hers (his) that she (he) has overwhelmed me. She (He) makes my dialogue seem witty and painful but true, so very very true to how I see Harry and Draco. They're dysfunctional and symbiotic and breathtaking. I must have stared at the screen for a good long while just absorbing the entirety of this.

I hope every single person that participates in [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix gets something equally as amazing as what I received.

Also - have a song. It's from The Constant Gardener and is Justin's Lament. I've had this on repeat all day as I've been writing. Painful and beautiful.

Picspam is tomorrow as I didn't get near what I wanted to accomplish done. Sorry.
