FYI, my January DD fic - Dirty Uncle Charlie porn - is up here. Read the warnings and have fun :D



Day 11

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


This seemed impossibly difficult; there are so many creators whose work I love. But I mentioned [livejournal.com profile] lizardspots to the relatively-new-to-fandom [livejournal.com profile] mywitch the other week, and [livejournal.com profile] mywitch didn’t know who she was. Which is totally fair but made me sad because Lizard’s art is FANTASTIC and I don’t want people to miss out on it - particularly given that [livejournal.com profile] mywitch is a massive Snape fan and Lizard did so much great Snape art.

[livejournal.com profile] lizardspots isn’t really in fandom any more though she’s still a friend of mine and sporadically updates her LJ to let people know how her life is going. She has a massive masterlist with lots of different characters, including cute gen and pervy porn. Her work is mostly Potter but there’s a decent chunk of other fandoms too. She’s got a sly wit, a lot of atmosphere, gorgeously detailed backgrounds, and did I mention the porn?

Day 10

In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Thinking about this, I actually found the underlying element that ties together a lot of my kinks, both sexual (clothed/naked, humiliation) and narrative (hurt/comfort, forced confessions). That is forced vulnerability. Sometimes in my favourite fics that vulnerability is respected, and other characters are kind in the face of it. Sometimes they’re very much not, which is also fabulous :D

I feel like it’s totally obvious why I love it - it’s deep enough in my id that it’s hard to explain, and of course you share it you just nodded like “yes, of course.” Enemy ships often involve a moment where the enemies recognise that the other person is really a person in the same way they are, and not unrelatedly, vulnerable to hurt - and my love for enemy ships and forced vulnerability is probably pretty chicken-and-egg. (Buffy/Faith, my ultimate OTP, is sooooo good for this. I also have a theory that it’s a significant part of why Harry/Draco shippers love the Sectrumsempra scene so much, and the idea that Harry left scars.) And on the kinkier side, part of why I love Draco getting beaten down so much is his privileged background getting turned all around. The fluffier kinkfic I write does this backwards: it tends to linger on doms being careful of their subs’ sore spots.

It plays into my darker kinks to have vulnerability exploited, and my softer side to have people be kind in the face of it. And I really do believe that respecting vulnerability, whether or not the vulnerable people are good people, is a fundamental requirement of morality and civilisation. It’s a fundamental tenet of my lefty liberalism, now that I think about it. I have strong feelings about civil liberties, about prison reform, and about the end of the death penalty worldwide. For me all those things are deeply connected to the idea that just because the government has physical & legal & psychological power over you doesn’t mean they should use it - in fact, very much the opposite.

Let’s get to the recs before I get any more pompous :D )

This is mostly links I’ve saved over the past few months while failing to actually make a damn recs post with them :) But hey, good fanworks are evergreen.

Let’s see if I can get a reliable recs post thing going again for December :D This one is all art from the UNBELIEVABLY FABULOUS Harry/Draco fanart fest that just finished, and a tiny sampling of the minor Doctor/Master kick I was inevitably sent on by DW and the major White Collar kick I was sent on by the start of S6. So much Neal whump, you guys. SO. MUCH.
