Thing one: five million years ago I said I would write some porny femslash for [personal profile] magnetic_pole for no other reason than that she deserves it, and had a couple of birthdays. I finally did it, and it is over at Daily Deviant for my Feb posting. Maggie, I hope you enjoy it!

Pensioners' Passion, Ginny/Fleur, NC-17. 69 years after Voldemort's fall...

I tried for your other suggested pairing and came up with several ideas, none of which I could make work. Perhaps for your next birthday, 5 million years later. *hugs*

Thing Two: For anyone interested in a health and fitness game, I mod a community for such a thing. The community is called game_is_on. Many of you already participate, and if you don't, you've probably heard it mentioned around these parts, or seen a post for a few minutes when I posted one here instead of to the com by mistake...anyway, a new round is starting on March 9, and if you are interested, let me know. :)

Okay, back to writing late!fic...

So flist, did you know that taking care of someone who has just had open heart surgery is a bloody lot of work? I suppose that's obvious, but it is. This is why I haven't been around much. :P

I am supposed to take the kid camping with a big group of friends this weekend. Not sure how this is going happen. I will be doing a lot of back and forth, I guess. I know friends will help, but I may be out of touch again this weekend and I may need to mainline coffee.

I think I may have gained back all the weight l lost in the last round of Game On. I am not going to worry about it, though, because that would be self-defeating and whatever, really. And….the next round starts on June 2nd! I will be so, so ready and I will continue to drink wine and eat chocolate at the end of these long days until June 1st.

Right, I'm a bit of a drag here, so in other news – FIC FOR ME!!!!

Prizes from the last round of [profile] game_is_on (because [personal profile] romaine and I kicked their arses (of course, they kicked the collective arse of me, [personal profile] lyras, and [profile] elizassecret this last round. Wait a moment, [personal profile] romaine seems to win all the time *note to self: put Rom on my team again next time):

Bingo! by [personal profile] torino10154: Remus and Sirius, along with Regulus, Severus, Dumbledore, and a few others play Bingo in the afterlife. This is a quick, short, snappy back and forth between Remus and Sirius that is sexy, funny, and sweet. YAY! And it's mine, but you should read it and leave a lovely comment. :D

Step by Step (A Beginners Guide to Bringing James Potter to Your Bed) by [profile] gryffindor_j: Scorpius has been tasked with seducing James – by Teddy!! Scorpius follows the step-by-step given to him by Teddy. They include "bring him to me," which I have on good authority was said with a wolfish growl. I don't think I need to tell you anything else. I have to share this one with Rom, which I don't mind and we both, I'm sure encourage you to share our good fortune and leave some love.

Written for me at [community profile] hp_beholder: Dogs of War by [personal profile] alimsiemanym. It is a gritty, carefully crafted story with an unflinching portrait of war. Mind the warnings, but read it for the believable, intense and incredibly touching relationship and the genuine characterizations of Moody and Scrimgeour. A really moving, vivid, and detailed fic.

I wrote, The News Today (Morning Edition), which I'll repost here soon. It has the pairings: Augusta/Moody, Minerva/Arabella, and Arthur/Molly. That's right. I not only wrote het, I wrote het that wasn't James/Lily and I wrote Weasley het. I am rather pleased with how some bits of this turned out. :)

I planned, and still plan, to do some more recs from [community profile] hp_beholder. In the meantime, check out the masterlist and just pick something to read/view. Don't go by pairing or the authors and artists you know (except, of course, for mine). You really can't do that at this fest. It is such a fabulous fest and the overall quality is really stellar.

And…Remix is live! I ended up writing a pinch hit for it. Go and peruse the amazing archive. I've only had time so far to read a couple, and they have both been great fun. The fandom tag page is here (http://archiveofourown.org/collections/Remix2010/fandoms) at Archive of Our Own.

That's all for now. Need to get some sleep so I can get up and do it all again. How are you, dear flist?

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!
