As usual, [community profile] hp_beholder has some amazing stuff. As usual, I am behind on reading and commenting and rec'ing, but here are some I have particularly enjoyed so far:

Title: Swings and roundabouts
Rating: PG
Pairings: Dudley/OC, Petunia/OC
Word Count: 1,980
Summary: In which Dudley finds, and loses, and rediscovers love, and Petunia hopes he'll find himself.

A very easy to read, nicely written story with great flow and pacing. The pairing works so well—don't let the OC frighten you off. Petunia was really well portrayed. And the author throws in a couple of lines that let you know that this more likeable Dudley is still completely Dudley.

Title: The rest of the mornings in the world
Rating: R
Pairings: Horace Slughorn/Cornelius Fudge
Word Count: ~5,500
Summary: After the Battle of Hogwarts, Horace finds an opportunity to repay a favour to an old friend.

The exploration of Slughorn's character is brilliant. The author looks at his feelings about how the war(s) went and his role and how it might affect him after in a way I hadn't thought of. The friendship between Horace and Cornelius builds and changes for reasons I won't mention for spoiling it, but it is lovely and poignant. A beautifully done story.

Title: Zinnia and Honeysuckle
Rating: R-ish
Pairings: Hooch/Sprout // Hooch/Neville (if you squint)
Word Count: ~1,200
Warnings: Featured Character Death.
Summary: Muggle plants bloom out of season in the wizarding world. They flourish and wither at the whim of magical energies, a barometer of wizard emotions.

This one is just so pretty. There are several lovely vignettes—a little melancholy, a little sweet. It is very easy on the eyes and beautifully written.

Title: A Small Touch of Luck
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Severus Snape/Filius Flitwick
Word Count: ~8,800
Warnings: a gratuitous "wand" joke
Summary: After the war, Severus finds himself dealing with excessively apologetic former colleagues, struggling through a difficult recovery from his injuries, and holed up inside Hogwarts in order to avoid the Ministry. Strangely, Filius is somehow making it almost enjoyable.

This features an utterly charming, wise, wonderful Flitwick and an IC, snarky, but daring to hope for something different in life Snape. The author takes time to develop their relationship gently and beautifully and it is romantic and funny without being soppy.
mindabbles: (harry over the shoulder look)
Title: Potter Shots
Characters/Pairings: Draco/Albus Severus, mention of Rose/Scorpius, mention of surprise threesome
Rating: NC-17
Kinks/Themes Included: Orgasm denial, oral sex, anal sex, cockrings
Other Warnings: rimming, begging, a little dirty talk
Word Count: 7,000
Summary/Description: "I like them, the spectacles." Draco's voice was smooth and soft, and Albus' body reacted to that tone, pitched just right, every single time.
Author's Notes: This was written for Daily Deviant's Kinky Kristmas 2009 and originally posted HERE. I had such fun writing this. I took [personal profile] floraharts prompt somewhat literally. It was: <I>Al has appeal on his own, but they both know Draco sees Harry when he looks at him. Orgasm denial (Al denying Draco), desperately cock-hungry Draco sucking Al off in inappropriate places, begging, Al playing on his looking like Harry.Thanks so much to [profile] elizassecret for the beta and help with Albus' job, and to [profile] midnitemaraud_r for suggesting that, as wizards, they could surely transfigure something into a cock ring.

I have already shared that Daily Deviant's birthday party was the place to be last month. AND OMG EEEEEEEEE!! LOOK AT THIS!! Two artists did pieces based on my very first fic there. I realize that I have never reposted any of my Daily Deviant fics to my own journal, and this seemed like a fabulous place to start.

Both of these pieces are gorgeous and crazy-sexy. The artists actually illustrated the exact same moment in the fic, but they are totally different from each other (well, except that they are both gorgeous and they are both blow jobs). Check out James' expression and Teddy's hair in [profile] ericahpfa's (I love love love the way Erica does hair) and the colours and intensity in [personal profile] emzlovesharry's. Omg, really. Leave them some love while you're there.

Title: Touch
Artist: [profile] ericahpfa
Media: Pencil, pen, references
Characters/Pairings: Teddy/James II
Rating: NC17
Content/Warnings: NWS

Title: The Blue Sofa
Artist: [personal profile] emzlovesharry
Media: PS CS3 and graphics tablet
Characters/Pairings: Teddy/James II
Rating: NC-17, baby!
Content/Warnings: um... oral?

And here's the fic at Daily Deviant, The Feel of It or, below, here at my journal—feedback is treasured either here or there.

Title: The Feel of It
Characters: Teddy/James Jr., Albus Severus, Lily Jr., Hugo, Rose
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: oral sex, first time (for James) anal sex, a teeny, tiny hint of rimming
Themes/kinks chosen: Edible aphrodisiacs, hyphephilia
Word Count: 5,900
Summary: In his fantasies Teddy always tumbles him forcefully onto the soft, cool surface of the sofa, biting at his neck and grinding his hard cock between James' spread legs.
Author's notes: Thanks to [profile] elizassecret for the beta. Thank you so much to the mods for the invitation!!

Tonight, Teddy won't know what hit him. )
mindabbles: (teddy-james kiss)
1) I went out to run errands wearing my slippers this afternoon.

2) Conversation overheard between my son and his friend while the two boys are playing with their pokemon cards. Friend, "This says I'm in love. Why do I have to be in love? That sucks." Son, "You're in love? In your face! Ha ha." Friend, "I'll get out and it could be worse. At least I'm in love with you." Son, "That's true. Let's keep playing." I actually have no idea what any of this means.

3) [profile] midnitemaraud_r, [profile] red_sqaured, [profile] gryffindor_j, and I held a little birthday party for Remus the other night. Four fics, all Remus/Sirius. I highly recommend each of theirs. They are ranging in rating from PG-13 to NC-17, they are all funny, sweet, and sexy. You can find them HERE, along with mine (which is porn, because [profile] gryffindor_j told me to. It also has wall sex because once upon a time, [profile] gryffindor_j pointed out to me that I had never written R/S wall sex).

4) OMG, did you all check out Daily Deviant yesterday?? Well, this whole month—the community's birthday party. All the fics are remixes of previous DD works and it has been a pretty fabulous month. Yesterday was a banner day over there with two fabulous fics:

A Job With Benefits by [personal profile] woldy, rated R, is an absolutely charming, romantic, funny Hooch/Pomfrey. There is a lovely sex scene that will make you sigh. What I was most struck by with this one is that it is such a complete story in its just over 1,000 words. It won't take you long, and it will make you happy.

Betrayal is a Thorny Crown (You Wear It Well) by [personal profile] snegurochka_lee, rated NC-17, Teddy/James, is achey, hot, gripping, emotionally complex, and beautifully written. There is a scene where James confronts Teddy that made my breath catch. The tension is palpable. It follows wonderfully from the incredible original, Bruised Like a Cherry (Ripe as a Peach)—omg, so hot. A fabulous Victoire, wonderful supporting characters, and did I say HOT?? Really, go and read it.

5) [profile] midnitemaraud_r just informed me that the clocks turn back, turn ahead, whatever, it is LATER THAN I THOUGHT, tonight. Damn. :P
mindabbles: (teddy-james kiss)
If you haven't been reading at [community profile] hp_nextgen_fest, well you should. It has been a very fun fest to watch and participate in, and the mods have done a wonderful job. There's a huge variety of lengths, genres, and pairings of stories. Like Scorpius/Rose? There's plenty of that. Teddy/James? Lily/Rose? Yup, those too. Lorcan and Lysander even makes some appearances. Rose seems to get a lot of action. I seriously would recommend spending some time there, just click on anything that strikes your fancy, or even randomly. I have definitely enjoyed some things that were somewhat unexpected for me. Here are a few of my favourites. For these recs, I assure you I liked the whole fic (you probably know that since I am rec'ing them), but I picked them to rec because one something made each of them stand out to me.

Title: Why Hiding a Relationship With Your Enemy Never Works
Pairing(s): Rose/Scorpius
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Language, mentions of sex, and a tiny background mention of James/Teddy
Summary: History really does have the strangest tendency of repeating itself. Hopefully with better results.
Word Count: 3855

I loved this one because of the richness of all the characters. We have a foul-mouthed Lily who is a fiercely loyal friend to Rose. Albus, Hugo, Lily, James, and Rose are all very close and share there deepest secrets. Except for the one secret Rose only shared with Lily. And Scorpius, who is his father's son. This has so much in it for its number of words—and I enjoyed every one of them.

Title: In Which Three Is Also Company
Pairing(s): Established James/Teddy, James/Teddy/Scorpius threesome.
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Explicit sex
Summary: In search of celebration, Scorpius Malfoy finds, very possibly, the night of his life.
Word Count: 15k

Omg, so, so hot. Obviously that stood out. What I really loved here was the unique take on the threesome dynamic. Scorpius is fabulous. Great characterization of him. He wants to celebrate and he's lucky enough to meet a lovely couple, James and Teddy. James and Teddy are a comfortable, loving couple and somehow the author manages to make the threesome good for all of them—Scorpius is not a third wheel, nor is there any awkwardness or jealousy between James and Teddy. Really, read this—if you like that sort of thing. ;)

Title: Click
Pairings: James/(other males), Teddy/James, Albus/Scorpius
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Rimming, spanking
Summary: The first time was an honest to goodness mistake. The second time, Albus had his camera and a plan.
Word Count: 6300

Also smokin' hot, but what stood out to me in this one was the plot. It is creative and fresh and not something that felt familiar as I was reading it—you know what I mean. Even sometimes very good fics have a feeling of, "Oh I read one like this, only it was Hagrid/Giant Squid." This fic made me smile and surprised me. It was a quick read with a wonderful James, a very naughty Albus, and a sexy as hell Teddy. And there's a cool twist at the end. You won't be sorry if you give it a try.

If you care enough to read something all the way through or enjoy some art, don't forget to let the author or artist know.

I am super excited because our [profile] game_is_on challenge starts tomorrow and four brave souls have agreed to do it with me. Fic must happen tonight, as in right now—a special little project that was [profile] gryffindor_j's brilliant idea, will be revealed in a few days, and that makes me happy. :)

Hope you all had a good weekend, flist!

This was my contribution to the [profile] charlieficathon, a delightful fest that featured all Charlie, all the time. If you didn't check it out, you really should. I don't think I had written something where infidelity was the theme as much as it was a vehicle for the theme before, so this was new for me. I'm kind of fond of this one, tbh, so I hope you enjoy it! Thanks so much to everyone who already read and left lovely comments and rec'd it.

Title: Pepper and Plum In the Dead of Winter
Author: [personal profile] mindabbles
Recipient: [profile] westwardlee
Pairing(s): Charlie/Viktor
Word Count: 7,900
Rating: R
Summary: It's a physical pull, an ache, looking at him and knowing what it is like to be held against that chest, to have those arms about you, and yet to watch him stand a room and a world away.
Warnings: Infidelity and the accompanying angst
A/N: Thank you, [profile] westwardlee for the wonderful prompts. I really hope you enjoy this. Thank you to [personal profile] luvscharlie for running this fest and giving Charlie the love he is due. Tremendous thanks to [profile] elizassecret for nudging me to this pairing of all the fabulous ones in the request and for helping to give the story shape, and also to [personal profile] magnetic_pole and [profile] gryffindor_j for the super quick, thorough beta work.

Hey all, how's your Friday night/Saturday morning? I have some recs and a glass of wine. That's how mine is. :)

Some things I've enjoyed recently: )

Don't forget to leave the authors some love if you enjoy them!

I have to start working on my [community profile] hp_beholder fic soon. My assignment made jump up and down. I love it. I have no idea what I am going to write yet, but I still love the assignment. :P

You've probably all seen that [community profile] hp_nextgen_fest started posting a few days ago. There have been some fun fics already and I know there are some great ones to come. ;D I just have a feeling. So far, I loved this one, Life's Disappointments, that has been rec'd far and wide and deservedly so. It is mostly gen, Scorpius as an adorable loner with an over-active imagination at age 11 and Professor Charlie Weasley as the only one who seems to get him at all. It is funny and sweet and quite sad at points, with a lovely, poignant ending. I'll have more recs from that fest as it marches on.

I had the final bid at the fabulous [personal profile] crooked's [community profile] help_haiti auction!!! So there will be fic from her in the near-ish future. Everybody wins there, right? I DID NOT win in [profile] gryffindor_j's auction because [personal profile] torino10154 snuck in and outbid my request for either Remus/Sirius or Charlie/Teddy while I was hard at work. ♥ So there will be Snarry. Not to worry, though. J is a kind soul and she challenged me to still make the donation and she will still write me an R/S fic AND will match my donation if I write her a Charlie/Teddy. So, again, everybody wins.

cut for somewhat lengthy blather about Haiti )
I was going to post about other things like some minutiae of my life, writing, and fest fics, but this got long and I have to write or I will once again be late for a fest and I have THE WORST record this year. But I never flake—I'm late, but I get there. Hi mods for fest I am currently trying not to be late for. :)

I do have one final question. Why does Bellatrix have an Austrian accent in the audio book of HBP?
mindabbles: (harry over the shoulder look)
I have gifts!!! Three of them and they are all fabulous and you should run right over and check them out and leave my lovely anon gifters lots of love!

The fic:

From [profile] hp_yule_balls, One Step Forward, Two Steps Back; Shag, Rinse, Repeat. NC-17, Teddy/James
Summary: Teddy truly wanted James to be happy, but it was another thing entirely when achieving that happiness meant losing him. Teddy huffed silently to himself. As if I ever really had him in the first place.
Warnings: Light bondage, rimming, side Harry/Draco (implied)
Word Count: 24,400

Is that not a fantastic title? It is perfect for the story as well. This is essentially a sweet love story. There is some plottiness and adventure, smutty goodness, and great supporting characters. Not the cliche portrayal of Harry and Ginny and their kids. The love story builds around James and Teddy not getting how the other feels about him, waiting for the other to say--there is a delicious misunderstanding where they are both idiots. Long and lovely, it sucked me in, made my heart clench and made me smile. Go read and enjoy!

The arts:

At Daily Deviant's Kinky Kristmas, O My King, Hard R, Teddy/James

I, er, apparently left very similar prompts here and at yule_balls, because I have received two sweet, slightly kinky Teddy/James gifts. I am NOT complaining.

Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Stunningly romantic and sexy. They are about to kiss and you can feel (and see a hint of...) their anticipation. The colors are so beautiful. In my mind, James is absolutley smitten and you can see it on his face. Guh. I don't even know what else to say. Go and see for yourself.

At [community profile] hd_holidays, If Only In My Dreams (You'll Be Home For Christmas), Soft R, Harry/Draco, with side Hermione/Ron

A comic!!!! An adorable, sweet, 30 panel Christmas story with a pining Harry. I love a pining Harry. :) Ron and Hermione are wonderful best friends to Harry and totally in character. The art is in a very clean, comic style with great expressions and movement. So easy to look at. I found myself reacting more to the story because the art is so seamless. Harry has been an idiot, and Draco walks in and presents him the chance to stop being an idiot. It will only take you a couple of minutes to read and look at it, but if you are like me, you will read it several times at once!!

And another thing! [personal profile] blacksquirrel created a podfic of my [community profile] bigbangblackout story Grow In The Openings for the podbang at [personal profile] amplification. I was so blown away that she would want to use my fic for her gift to someone else at a fest. She was lovely and gracious through the entire process. Go and give a listen and leave her some love as well.

So tell me, have I made out this year or WHAT??

Some Recs!

mindabbles: (harry over the shoulder look)
I so meant to do this before the reveal. Really I did. Better late than never, right?

When I have been stuck on the many things I am writing, I have been reading some at [community profile] bigbangblackout (yes, there are many fabulous stories there I've yet to read properly), reading some fantastic stuff at [profile] hd_career_fair, and have come across a couple of great things at [community profile] ownficfest. Hmm, maybe there is a pattern here that could tell me why I'm not getting my own writing done.

Anyway, some recs:

Light as Iron, Singed as Pearl by [personal profile] snegurochka_lee, NC-17.

I think this was the first thing I read at this fest and, OMG, what a way to begin. I love this fic. Draco is the owner of an elite BDSM club. Harry is the Ministry's post-war Reconciliation and Reconstruction Commissioner. This means that Draco gets to call Harry Commissioner throughout the fic, which is ridiculously hot. I would characterize the interactions between Harry and Draco as D/s not BDSM, and the exploration of that dynamic is absolutely brilliant—subtle, interesting, and totally sexy. The description of the emotions and needs of both characters is really compelling. The final, scorchingly hot, sex scene explores what D/s means in a non-stereotypical way that I loved so, so much. There is also a fabulous OC named Phoebe, on whom I have a giant crush. I clicked on this not meaning to read something right then, just looking, mmm-hmmm, but once I started, I had NO choice but to finish it.

Go read this, really do. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Small Blessings, by [personal profile] oldenuf2nb, R.

After the war, Harry opens an orphanage with the help of a surprising friend. When he adopts an infant left on his doorstep, he has no idea what fate has in store for him.

This is such a lovely story. The summary tells you what Harry does. Draco is the designer of an elite line of men's lounge wear. This means there are lots of pretty descriptions of him… He had been the playboy of the wizarding world, estranged from his family. He returns to England and has no idea what fate has in store for him, either. This is sweet and schmoopy, but not without substance. The building attraction between Harry and Draco is completely delicious and both characters are believable as more mature, slightly mellowed versions of their teen selves. There are some great OCs in this as well, and a wonderful Pansy.

If you are in the mood for a suck-you-in, romantic story, this is for you.

When the Clocks Stopped, by [personal profile] vaysh11, NC-17

When the clocks stop the past gets its chance to catch up.

This is a creative, fast-paced story. Harry is a member of a Curse Breaker team—lead by Sirius Black! Draco is a renowned Arithmancy expert who has made some important discoveries about time. I can't do the complexity and creativity of the plot justice. It is exciting and intricate. The physicists and science-and-time-space-continuum-minded people on the flist will have to suspend your disbelief. The author acknowledges that the science is made up. The UST between Harry and Draco is fabulous, as is the get together. An interesting, different kind of a read.

*warning for sadness at the end*

There are others on my list to rec and to read, so more later. The masterlist for this fest is incredible and I don't think you could go wrong by just looking through it and clicking on anything that catches your eye.

Don't forget to leave the authors/artists some love.

p.s. I will be in need of a beta for a 5k fic later this weekend. It is with someone for content now, but I would love someone for a second look and SPAG. Anyone available and willing? I would be so thankful. :)

Because I am terrible, apparently, at keeping my journal organized, I never reposted my story from [profile] springtime_gen this past spring. It is Lily-centric (Lily Sr., that is) with Teddy Lupin as her biographer. I'll admit, I am rather fond of this one.

Originally posted HERE at [profile] springtime_gen

Title: Remember Me In The Telling
Character(s): Lily Evans, Teddy Lupin, Severus Snape, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, James Potter, Regulus Black
Rating: PG
Word-count/Media: 5,800 words
Warnings (if any): AU, character death—canon deaths, but alternate timeline.
Summary: Severus pleaded with her to stay, apologizing for his ugly words. Lily tried to go, but he asked one more time and something in his voice made her stop. Teddy Lupin has a book to write, and Lily Evans has a story to tell.
Author's/Artist’s Notes (if any): This was for a request for an AU where changing a small event creates a major difference. Four lines, marked with a (*) are taken directly from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, U.S. Edition, p. 676.

Head on over to [community profile] femgenficathon and check out Majesty by [profile] kellychambliss

The Queen of England has occasion to learn of the existence of the magical world, and she wants to see it for herself. The story takes her, with the current Prime Minister, to Hogwarts to meet up with Minerva and Kingsley. What you get is a delightful story with a rich backstory for Minerva, wonderful interactions between Minerva and Kingsley, and really lovely conversation between Minerva and Elizabeth. It is a very quick read for its 6K.

Go on and check it out and leave the author some love!

On another note, it is raining, I have peppermint tea, and I am about to start writing my [community profile] hd_holidays fic. Or I might just peruse the flist. I hope you are all having similarly relaxing evenings. :)

The [community profile] bigbangblackout community and archive are still live and there are still many fantastic stories there to be read, including by me.

The masterlist for the archive is HERE and my story (R/S, Sirius/Charlie, Sirius/OMCs, with a fair amount of non-romance plot, AU, NC-17, gorgeous art by [personal profile] spacefragments) is HERE.

Artists and authors can now post to other sites and archives--it will probably be a while before I get around to reformatting and posting mine here. However, I thought I'd share this little bit of filth. Way back when, this was conceived as a flashback in the story. But then there weren't actually any flashbacks in the story. I had mentioned Sirius/Bellhop porn to the other [community profile] sirius_writers enough times that I thought I had better deliver, and originally posted this there.

Sirius/bellhop porn (NC-17, absolute PWP, in case that wasn't clear).

Hiya everyone. I've been scarce around these parts lately because of the busy, busy, busy. Also have been trying to get a little more sleep--thought I might improve my brain function.

[personal profile] magnetic_pole wrote me an absolutely lovely ficlet. It is Remus and Sirius for the prompt, "friendship." It is subtle and sweet and gentle and totally captures the dynamic of them communicating perfectly with each other through basically just knowing and caring about each other so well. Go and read it and leave her a comment. It is called Do You Remember Alan Mackenzie

I am slowly, very slowly, reading the [community profile] bigbangblackout stories. There are so many wonderful ones there. Don't forget to go and check out the archive. There is such a variety and people worked so very hard. I have had a sum total of about an hour to read over the last week, so have failed at making much headway through the list!

Oooh, did I mention that I was invited to join Daily Deviant? How cool (and sort of terrifying) is that?? That means I have added two to the fic deadlines about which I am currently fretting. It also means that it has become a good thing that two of my upcoming assignments will not be porn. I'll need to save up.

And finally, [profile] elizassecret:

Title: Better Late
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~7000
Warnings: Well, what do you think happened after [profile] elizassecret made a snarky comment about me writing rimming? There're other sexual activities as well, but that's the one I thought might not be a given by the rating.
Disclaimer: Harry and Draco, and pretty much everything else except the sex belong to JKR.
Summary: Harry is miserable at his birthday party. So miserable, in fact, that he briefly considers leaving to take care of drunk teenagers, as the only better option available. That is, until something infinitely preferable presents its, or rather his, self.
Notes: A most happy belated birthday to my very dear [profile] elizassecret. I hope you enjoy your prezzie. Sorry it's so late. ♥

Thank you so very much to [personal profile] red_squared for the creative, thorough and speedy beta. And to [personal profile] duck_or_rabbit for lovely feedback and encouragement. ♥ to you two, as well.

Title: There's Something About A Malfoy
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): Harry/Scorpius, Charlie/Draco
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Summary: Charlie has no room in his drawers for anyone else's skivvies, Harry wallows in moral agony for a bit, Draco wants to rebuild his life, and Scorpius just wants Harry to stop being an idiot. And there's something wicked in the forest. If they're going to stop it, they're all going to have to work together.
Warnings: Rimming and other sexual activities.
Word Count: 27,500 give or take.

Author's Notes: Written for [profile] trubblecleff at the 2009 [community profile] hp_springsmut fest. [profile] trubblecleff's request was fabulous and included: banter, rimming, and Draco as a redeemed friend; and prompts of Aurors and teacher/student. Two of Charlie's bits of relationship advice were shamelessly stolen from Dan Savage at Savage Love.

Thanks to [profile] midnitemaraud_r for the amazing job running the fest. Thank you so much to [profile] elizassecret for listening to me agonize over parts of this for ages and the thorough beta; and to [personal profile] la_dissonance for the speedy-quick final beta and helping me remove some of the bits that were soppy even for me.

This was such, such fun. I am still blown-away and so grateful for all the wonderful comments and recs this received when it was first posted. Thank you to everyone for that. :D

Tell me he just hasn't had enough sleep lately (he hasn't) and hasn't been feeling well because of having bad allergies (he has). Right? Right. His birthday is tomorrow, it would really suck if he came down with swine flu on his birthday.
