Day 12

In your own space, post a rec for fannish spaces and resources - comms, challenges, twitters, tumblrs, etc. Tell us about where you hang out. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

This one’s tough for me because I basically hang out on my flist, or more occasionally my Tumblr dash; even when I hang out elsewhere it’s often like, a meta person’s LJ so I can discuss stuff in the comments.

Fannish resources:

[livejournal.com profile] crack_broom: years’ worth of high-quality, tagged Harry Potter recs.

[livejournal.com profile] potterfests: given the fest-centric nature of Potter fandom, especially on LJ/DW, this is absolutely necessary and a fantastic resource.

[community profile] halfamoon: an annual fourteen-day challenge celebrating female characters. It starts TOMORROW and runs until Valentine’s Day! You can create fic or art or icons or vids, or do recs or meta or anything. It’s great.

General resources:

[tumblr.com profile] writingwithcolor: several mods from different backgrounds answer questions about writing BME/POC characters. I found it very helpful when struggling with whether an idea for some original fiction was appropriative - Googling previously having led me to various ideas and articles that were inappropriate or unhelpful for various reasons.

[tumblr.com profile] bisexualbooks: my reading fail last year means I’ve still read staggeringly few bisexual characters in my bibliophile life. (Two, both of them ‘hedonistic’.) But this tumblr is a fantastic resource nonetheless.

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?

cut for LOADS of recs - mostly HP, a bit of Merlin and White Collar )

Day 04

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

I’m going to count meeting [livejournal.com profile] mywitch IRL this week :)

Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Ron/Draco, Harry/Draco, and multifandom recs under the cut )

Day 06

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

Art of one of my fics. This has only happened once, for Mrs Malfoy’s Finishing School For Young Ladies (as a private gift, I don’t think she posted it publically or I’d link) and it was EVERYTHING I COULD HAVE WANTED AND MORE.

2. Tropey femmeslash. This has definitely got better but still, I feel like femmeslash has this fabulous pile of original, lyrical writing - but that reputation, particularly within HP, intimidates fans. And sadly there isn’t much people having fun and letting their id out to play, throwing their copper/thief Diana/Alex handcuffs porn and Hermione/Pansy slavefic and Natasha/Pepper soulmates AU at the wall to see what sticks. DO THAT. If you wanted to write deaged or animal transformations or fuck or die for Cat/Kara in particular, I would not be opposed. *coughcough*

3. People feeling comfortable disagreeing with me on meta posts, and being okay with me doing the same. Potter fandom is still in, basically, a trauma backlash: we were the big crazy wanky fandom, and then everyone got really focussed on being polite and avoiding wank to an EXTREME extent. And I feel like the Tumblr tussles, with fans who’re a lot more wanky because of the effects of Tumblr as a platform and not coming up through that history, have only made LJ Potter fandom more suspicious of disagreement. It is very Potter-focussed - my flisters who came up through Buffy or Doctor Who meta are much more able to violently yet politely disagree and debate in each other’s comments and stay friends. And it’s great.

4. Concrit :) For me anyway. And more comments for everybody!

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.
