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 )

Why yes I have been playing in the Misfits tag on AO3. It was nearly as fun as rolling around in [livejournal.com profile] ron_draco_fest’s awesome.

I’m not doing brilliantly right now; I’m not very happy in Vietnam, and the job isn’t going wonderfully. I am going to have to pay careful attention to not spiralling, I think. Depression snuck up on me a couple of years ago, and it wasn’t so much misery that hit as total apathy. I’ve noticed in the last couple of weeks that I’m getting much less done than usual.

So yes. I’m sorry to be so behind on things right now, guys. At least these are still happening.

I’m going to bring back my weekly recs posts, guys - on Fridays instead of Saturdays because I am out at work from 6:15am to 9:15pm at the weekends. But they’re back, which means this post is full of stuff I’ve had saved for ages; the hiatus on reccing has not meant a hiatus on me seeing stuff and going SO COOL. :)

But first, very recent things: STUFF I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY (And this is not even counting the recs and hot pics and such.) I love my life :D

First, thank you to [livejournal.com profile] alisanne, [livejournal.com profile] 0idontknow0, [livejournal.com profile] roelliej for the birthday wishes. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] bewarethesmirk, [livejournal.com profile] spicykittins, [livejournal.com profile] lallina88, [livejournal.com profile] citrus_lime, [livejournal.com profile] babydracky and [livejournal.com profile] mornings for the very sweet birthday messages. And, of course, thank you all so much for your incredibly sweet comments and well-wshes on my birthday post!!! You made my birthday good when it would have been horribly meh, and I love you for it.

And I got fantastic fics too!! Read, enjoy, and comment :D

Draco spanking party [livejournal.com profile] thusspakekate. Harry/Draco featuring Ron, Charlie, Pansy, Severus, Kingsley, and Neville; ~1000 words, NC-17; bondage, blindfold, gag, spanking.

This is the best thing ever. I requested spanking fic with Draco and any of the above named characters, so [livejournal.com profile] thusspakekate gave me ALL OF THEM. It’s an incredibly hot scenario - Harry calls in his friends to help punish Draco - and Draco loves it even as he cries, as he’s put through his paces. There are voices he recognises and has associations with, and silent people who refuse to give him a clue. It’s just ridiculously hot. And omg, when they all disappear and it’s just Harry and Draco together... *dies*

Sirius/Draco spanking by [livejournal.com profile] deathlydragon. Sirius//Draco, ~800 words, NC-17; spanking.

[livejournal.com profile] deathlydragon’s mission to convert us all to Sirius/Draco continues with this hot slice of BRILLIANT. Draco teases Sirius about being an old man until he ends up arse-up over Sirius’ knees and trying not to let on that he’s incredibly turned on. And then orgasms, and then a moment of Sirius being fucked-up and kind of self-destructive and I don’t even know what my feelings are doing.

Tease The Boss [livejournal.com profile] enchanted_jae. Harry/Draco, ~1100 words, NC-17; jealousy, cross-dressing. Summary: Malfoy is poised to make another conquest, but not if Harry has anything to say on the matter.

Light spanking and desk-sex and Draco as Harry’s smug secretary... it is just UTTER JOY. And intensely hot.

Ron/Draco flangst [livejournal.com profile] deathlydragon. Ron/Draco, ~800 words, PG.

SHE WROTE ME TWO THINGS. *insufferably smug face* This is perfect flangst; Draco comes to the Weasleys for Christmas because Ron asks, but he misses his own family. And then we get a lovely little moment of them claiming each other for their family and my heart grows three sizes.

lokifan: Close-up of H/D flushed sex!faces, art by red_rahl (H/D: sexy)
This is such a January recs post. A present for me, great fest pieces from catching up, and a couple of pure-joy vids because even in the tropics we need happy things in January.

The Skin You’re In by [personal profile] entrenous88. Buffy/Faith, ~500 words, PG. Summary: When Buffy sees Faith.

This a fantastic ficlet for ME. I love Buffy's recognition of what's going on with Faith but that she still doesn't know quite what to do, and the really vivid, perfect images of Faith-as-Buffy-sees-her, and the way it could be gen except there's this ~vibe between them, always. :D Plus I love Buffy/Faith post-Chosen, which this is.

If you’re still doing fest catch-ups like me, let me rec you some good stuff. Or come and squee with me about what you read ages ago, whatever. :D

Natasha ficlet by [profile] klashfor. Natasha gen, 600 words, Teen.

NATAAAAAASHA. MY BADASS DARLING YOU HURT MY HEART. This is an absolutely gorgeous ficlet in the comments of one of my National Poetry Month poems and it’s a scandal that I haven’t recced it before because. So many feelings. Natasha’s difficulties of identity, choosing her name as her signifier and her confused memories, and whether she can love with her identity so uncertain or if she’ll always just be acting out her training. idk it’s just 600 words of pure, grade-A awesome.

lokifan: Text: in my body, where the shame gland should be, there is a SECOND awesome gland! (Shameless yet awesome)
First one is outside the cut: Best of a Situation by [personal profile] elainemalfoy. Ron/Draco, ~900 words, R; bit of exhibitionism.

FOR MEEEEE and just, ridiculously hot. It is less than 1000 words and it killed me dead, I am so impressed. Ron is all sulky and IC at a Malfoy Manor party and Draco comes up to bitch at him to mingle and OH RON IS MAKING HIM COME AGAINST A WALL, WHOOPS.

Okay so I basically just accidentally recapped the story in capslock. So I’ve deleted that and will just say: go and read it, it’s scorching. I like the part with Draco crumpled against a wall and tousled and Ron smacking his arse.

lokifan: Film!Thor & Loki side-by-side (Thor/Loki)
Very heavy on the art this week, mostly because I’ve been using the family computer a lot - I’m at Mum’s until Sunday, when I move into the new place. Weirdly, I would rather risk the odd bit of porn when my sister might pass (luckily, Mum & Youngest Sister spent Tues-Fri in Geneva) than read much fic. I just find it hard to get into any kind of fiction when I don’t feel private/secure.

It’s still Saturday in most of the world! And I’ve finally managed to rec some Sherlock I’ve been meaning to rec for ages, as well as some of the completely fantastic Thor/Avengers fic I’ve been hoovering up.

Recs time! Fic where Kingsley kills Draco, fic where Kingsley shags Draco, fic with no Kingsley in it at all! (Because it is fic about the Avengers.) You cannot say I don’t bring variety!
