1. Apparently my fic Aftershocks was one of the most popular Harry/Draco fics on AO3 in 2016! At least as far as drarry-specific-recs can tell, from hits. What??? It’s like 2k of after-sex fingering. But then I guess that would back up my theory that a lot of the most successful fic (in terms of attention/love) combines a big pairing with an offbeat kink.

2. I have a problem with my left eye which will probably not get better, but is far from a disaster. (I can’t read with the left eye alone, but my peripheral vision is fine and my right eye compensates, so I barely notice having a floater in the left eye.) Mostly I notice when I do my eye make-up. Right now I’m relieved that the attempt at making it better - two INJECTIONS INTO MY EYE, NEEDLE IN MY ACTUAL EYE OH MY GOD - is probably over.

3. I signed up for [community profile] hd_erised. I was in at nine minutes and the very last sign-up. Now the waiting for my assignment begins! I wouldn’t be surprised if this was my last fic for that fest - although not my last HP fic! - so. Yeah. I’m pleased I got in, although we’ll see how I feel once I get my match!

4. Friday I went to see ‘Queers’ with [personal profile] kabal42, [profile] magicatmungos, and [personal profile] mokatiki. It was gorgeous - four monologues from queer men (I think three gay, one trans and straight) going forward in time. They were funny, heartbreaking, clever, and also really wonderfully expressed some of the ambiguity within the community about respectability, and legality, and the feeling of loss that comes with not being an “outlaw” as you become accepted. That’s not something I see talked about much, but it’s a very real tension. Also different varieties of happy endings. <3

5. I’m sorry I’m SO TERRIBLE at comment replies right now. It’s 100000% not you, it’s me.

I think in general it's a big pairing with any sort of kink? Since you could argue by most traditional definitions, kinks are all offbeat, but I also wouldn't be surprised if there's a subset of kinks that're big specific to certain pairings.

Yeah, I have a similar problem with my left eye? It's not so bad to the point where I can't read, but there's a notable discrepancy between how well my right/left can pick up on text.

But oh god needles in your eye. I'm guessing it's the sort of treatment you have to be awake for that?

I saw the Queer monologues advertised but the dates didn't work for me - still I'm glad to hear how good they were. Also, impressive ninja skills with Erised - I hear the spots went ridiculously quickly this year.
