I didn’t read at [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts today so no recs there. I spent most of the day trying to catch up on Kinky Kristmas and I am still not quite there. As for Kinky Kristmas, I submitted a fic last year there but my work schedule was so frantic that I couldn’t participate fully in the fest (in any fest this time last year) as a commenter and reccer. I felt genuinely bad about that. I made up my mind that this year I would. For most of the year only about 1% of my fandom participation doesn’t include Sirius. Yes, I know I’m horribly one note about him and I hear about lots of things I should be writing/reading/reccing but I can’t build enough interest. I suspect that if I ever tire of him I’ll fade from fandom, but I don’t see that happening any time soon. There is a point. I’m having trouble making it because I’m tired and rambly. The point: I’ve been reading outside my usual comfort zone and have been really enjoying it! I’ve even enjoyed fic with Snape and that is usually a no go for me. The writers and artists at daily_deviant are just so very talented and clever. If you’re not reading/viewing there already please give it a go. You won’t be disappointed.

Kinky Kristmas

Art Please assume all the art I rec from this fest is NSW, because it probably is.

The Comfort of the Living George/Luna

Beautiful and achingly sad, this is really lovely. This is probably the most poignant piece from this fest I’ve seen so far.

A Rather Strong Argument Snape/Narcissa

Narcissa is absolutely gorgeous in this. The coloring is splendid and her clothes! Really lovely.

With the night comes the darkness Fred Weasley/ George Weasley

The subject matter is necrophilia, but the art is so gorgeous. The poses are so striking and the coloring is amazing.

To the Victor Draco Malfoy/Ginny Weasley

Really gorgeous art by a not so mysterious artist.

Nothings Lupin/Snape

This is such an intriguing piece of art. It is stereoscopic, which means that if you follow the directions you get a sort of 3D illusion. The art itself is lovely, very sensual.

Fic

The Minister's Office Harry/Tonks/Bill

I’ve seen this recc’d everywhere and with very good reason. This is fun, playful smut with a more-innocent-than-he’d-like-to-admit!Harry, but boy is he willing to learn (even if he does blush the whole way through). The banter between Tonks and bill is delightful and clever. This is lots of fun!

Gentleman's Agreement Harry/Snape

Generally, this is a pairing I cannot even wrap my head around, but this has such an interesting and clever premise. Harry will do anything for his son James, including bribery. He regrets it instantly and isn’t really thinking about what he is saying or who he is saying it to, but he finds himself forced into an ‘agreement’ with Snape. Snape is perfectly in character, and as unpleasant as I remember him from canon. Of course, he’s got a few extra quirks. This fic includes BDSM that has a very realistic feel to it. I really enjoyed this fic and I didn’t expect to.

Welcome Home Sirius/Draco

This was my pressie and it was so lovely. I love a well-written Sirius/Draco which is hard to do, but when done right it is just too delicious. Draco’s voice in this is really lovely and we all know how much I love Sirius in charge, yes?

Ipswich Flipswitch=One Witch, Two Witch Fred/George/Angelina/Luna (in varying assortments)

This might be my favorite from this fest. Fred and George brew a potion that turns them into girls. Their girlfriends, Angelina and Luna, have an awful lot of fun with that. This piece is fresh and original and tons of fun. George and Fred are hard to write in my opinion, they are just so clever, and the author has them wonderfully characterized in this. Fantastic piece.

Swingers Draco/Hermione, Ron/Pansy (from established Ron/Hermione and Draco/Pansy)

The premise on this one is so much fun. It’s essentially a key party, but they use coins that are charmed to match you with your ideal partner. The characterizations are spot on and the sex is scorching.

Snapely Holidays

Fic

Found in the Moments Between the Search Snape/Sirius (with appearances by Harry, Remus, Dumbledore, and a small army of others)

Not a pairing I read very often but it was recc’d to me for having a very good Sirius and I have to agree. This is quite a long fic, but with a very engaging plot, lots of snark and banter and hothothot pr0n.


HP Yule Balls

Art

After Sirius/Charlie

This is a really gorgeous sensual piece of art. Blindfolded Charlie in Sirius’ care. Mmmm, nummy!
The wonderful, wonderful [livejournal.com profile] carmentakoshi drew illustrations to my story 'And A Star To Steer Her By'! You don't have to know the story to love this art. Go see this now and leave her some love here! I will have a better rec for this later, but right now just go look!
Okay, because I am running behind on my recs, these are just drive by quickie recs. These are also only from [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts. I’ll get to Kinky Kristmas tomorrow. Or maybe Saturday. Look, I’m clearly not a woman of my word since I said I would do this everyday and we all see how well that worked out. I could say more on all of these to tell you how wonderful they are, but I am trying to leave comments and have to get up early, blah, blah, blah. Just read, okay?

Art

The Secret Christmas Plan by [livejournal.com profile] peskywhistpaw

This is sort of art and fic all at the same time. It’s the captains log of one James Potter, with several interruptions from various, er, helpers. The ending is precious. Just precious.

Fic

I Swallowed Hard, Like I Understood. by [livejournal.com profile] batmanboxers

I’m not typically a fan of hurt/comfort, particularly if Sirius is the one with the hurtie, but oh goodness. I really loved this for the wonderfully descriptive battle scene, which is really hard to write, and for everything that comes after. Remus denies his own need for rest watching over Sirius, and Sirius is wonderfully Sirius. Even wounded he keeps his sense of humor.

White Gold by [livejournal.com profile] museme87

I really prefer when these men are written as even match, each stubborn and strong but with their own unique personalities intact. That is exactly what this fic delivers. It also delivers wonderfully romantic schmoop. And smut. Mmmm, smut. This is such a feel good fic. It makes you hurt a little in the beginning, but its all worth it in the end.

Learn To Be Quiet by [livejournal.com profile] grandilloquism

Oh, dear. This is Sirius at his mischievous best. Note: Do not leave Sirius Black alone at Hogwarts for Christmas break. This is simply hilarious and Sirius is just perfect.

Missing The Kiss by [livejournal.com profile] sleeper6

Adorably scruffy Sirius who is slightly superstitious about the kiss at midnight? Yes! You know that’s what has been missing from your life! The background of the war is there and also foreshadowing of what is to come in their relationship, but for now they have each other and a kiss.

To Keep Christmas Well by [livejournal.com profile] sullensiren

My sides hurt from laughing so much while reading this. The Marauders get stuck behind stairs and will most certainly be found years from now as moldy old skeletons. If it is to be their last Christmas together they’re going to do it right. They transfigure an argyle-Christmas tree, with leather-tinsel, and ornaments of Santa making unholy merry with his elves, shoe-pie and Rocknog – a Sirius specialty. This is too hilarious to miss.

Little Star by [livejournal.com profile] eprime

I’ve read a few Sirius is a Slytherin fics, but I think this is the best so far! This had perfect pacing, lots of boyish humor, and a sweet, slow-building romance. The changes were slight, all of them for the better, and completely believable. That and everyone is perfectly in character. This is a must read!

The Beast of Godric's Moor by [livejournal.com profile] rhye

This is a lovely retelling of Beauty and the Beast. The fairytale style that the story is told in is perfect. James and Sirius go hunting for adventure in the scary woods surrounding Godric’s Hollow and is caught out by Remus at dawn just as he is transforming back to his human self. James is set free with the promise of not telling on Remus or Sirius will be killed. Sirius finds out that there is a lot more to werewolves than he ever thought.

Carpe Diem by [livejournal.com profile] archduck

If there is one thing this author is excellent at, it is romance and humor. This will have you in stitches! I giggled the whole way through this.


So, that’s me all up to date. Next post will have Kinky Kristmas recs and likely more [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts recs and maybe a thing or two I pic up here or there featuring Sirius.

I just had my brain swallowed up by a fic idea and I am struggling with it. It feels like exorcising a demon. I should probably put it aside and get back to holiday fest reading and reccing, but I can't seem to focus on anything else. It isn't even that good. There was something I had to fix though.

I'll very soon post a holiday recs list from [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts  and Kinky Kristmas. I am committed to commenting on everything from both fests.
Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] brighty18 !!  I apologize for this coming so late in the day. I hope yours has been wonderful!

Give me a prompt or two and I'll write something for you.

*wipes brow*

I'm all caught up and come bearing recs. And that's pretty much all I got. Now I must work on something for [livejournal.com profile] rs_remix !

R/S Small Gifts

Fic

Travelling Through The Wilderness by [livejournal.com profile] liseuse

Non-magic Aus are among my favorite things, add to that historical Aus and I’m in heaven. This one is truly exceptional. The author creates a believable scenario within a setting that is at once sad and hopeful. The details in the conversation leave one wondering more about Sirius’ real situation and endear Remus to you completely. It is a glimpse into a simpler time where hospitality and graciousness were things you didn’t take for granted, but could expect as it was a part of the fabric of the culture. I can’t decide if it feels more WWI or WWII to me, but I’ll let you be the judge.

Gold and Silver Days by [livejournal.com profile] busaikko

This piece has utterly gorgeous prose that completely captures the bittersweet feeling that we so very much love in this pairing. The sex is gorgeous, much more erotic than pr0n.

Little Drop of Poison by [livejournal.com profile] toujours_nigel

Regency fic! Really well done regency fic at that. [livejournal.com profile] toujours_nigel is a master at prose that creates a specific mood and this is no different. The characters are kept true to their canon natures despite being so far out of their natural element. In just a few words, the author creates a complete, vivid world.

Where the Love Light Beams by [livejournal.com profile] xkeijukainenx

Pure, joyous Christmas camp! Plus videos and Remus and Sirius raising Harry!


Kinky Kristmas

Art

Lupine Distraction Remus/Luma

Just really gorgeous. I am kinda of a whore for porny art, but this is just really beautiful. It just looks like love is happening here.

Breathless, not quiet Ginny/Pansy

I think what I love about this is the simplicity. It just seems like a celebration of the feminine form. Stunningly rendered, yet somehow simple and natural.


Fic

Wild Justice James/Sirius/Severus Rapefic.

I will say that I personally do not think that James and Sirius were ever this evil. However, this rape fic is handled well by the author. The author plays James and Sirius off each other brilliantly, each pushing the other to this unspeakable act, humiliating and using Severus in ways no one ever should be. Somehow, despite having pushed their personalities past the limit of what I consider believable, this fic works. It is wrong, brutal, and cruel, and at the same time incredibly hot. Less because of what they are doing to Severus, although I can’t lie, it was hot, too, but more about the way they worked each other up. That I think is why the fic works. Before clicking the link, be warned, this is rape, unapologetic, harsh, and real.


Smutty Claus

The Wheel's Still in Spin Sirius/Hermione

What I really liked about this is that it isn’t the usual Time-Turner fic. There are dozens of them that follow the exact same formula, but this is definitely a fresh take.
Moar Christmas fest recs. I should have said this on the other one but the art may well be NWS so click at your own risk if you are at work. I'll be posting recs often, partly because I can (wheeee) and partly just to be able to keep up. R/S Small Gifts posts twice a day, and Kinky Kristmas three times. That's a lot of reading and viewing. I pick my recs based on just whatever strikes my fancy. I don't have a formula. I won't be bringing you every soddding thing from the fests. Just those that struck me as worthwhile of my taking the tme to put these posts together. Which, heh, is entirely subjective. I have my likes and dislikes the way everyone does.

R/S Small Gifts

Order Meetings Don't Always Have to be Vigilant... by [livejournal.com profile] amuly

What I really appreciated about this fic was the nod to Sirius' intelligence. Nothing, and I mean nothing, chafes me more than when Sirius is portrayed as empty headed. Sirius makes sure that a Christmas party for the order is, ahem, festive, but keeps in mind that at any moment danger could strike. He's got his bases covered so that the troops can let off a little steam. This is a fun piece, very-lighthearted for the most part, but the author doesn't forget about the underlying danger that faces them all. Also, I have a soft spot for Moody/Shacklebolt and a tiny nod to that is thrown in as well.


Kinky Kristmas

King of the Beasts Moody/Shacklebolt

I have a genuine soft spot for this pairing. This is, however, by no means a romantic tale. Kingsley, newly recruited to the order, brashly offers to teach some training courses. The tides are turned on him and he is forced to face his own desires and humiliations.

Christmas Eve Viktor/Ron

Hot. Just really, really hot. That's all I got. That and a good bit of incoherence.


Alright, that brings me up to speed on my recs. There are some other good stories at these fests but I'm not likely to rec a lot of Next Gen unless its art I can't tear my eyes away from. Generally speaking I can barely get through reading a Next Gen story. My only exception to this is Teddy, don't ask me why but I love the kiddo. Outside of him though, I am forever asking myself 'who are these fucking brats'. Sorry. If you love Next Gen, all apologies. I can almost guarantee I've not read your story so it really isn't personal. However, if someone would be willing to brave my gruffness and explain to me how to enjoy a Next Gen story, I would be much obliged.
First, guess who has a computer again? It's my old laptop up and running again. She's old, but she's faithful and I'll not say a bad word about her.

Second, I am following two fests this Christmas season, [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts and daily_deviant's Kinky Kristmas. With that thought in mind, have a sexy banner:



My plan is to read and comment on everything in these two fests and rec my favorites even if they don't feature Sirius.

For now, have some recs and I'll post tomorrow about how I'm doing.

R/S Small Gifts recs

Art

Together for the Holidays by [livejournal.com profile] deviant_forever

I am not familiar with this artist, but I hope to become so. This piece is such a cozy romantic scene with gorgeous use of color. It is a scene that makes you ache and wish this for Remus and Sirius.

Five Minutes in a Closet & A Cauldron Full of Hot Strong Love by [livejournal.com profile] myprettycabinet

I am very familiar with this artist. *g* She burst onto the R/S scene as an artist in much the way that [livejournal.com profile] eprime burst onto the R/S scene as a writer. Fortuitous then that these three illustrations are from [livejournal.com profile] eprime's own writings. There are more details in the link, but for this rec I simply want to say that the artist does her usual excellent job at capturing emotions and facial expressions. Her use of dark and light is simply fabulous. Please give these drawings a look, you'll be amazed.

Fic

Staff Infection by [livejournal.com profile] brighty18

I love Minerva's oh, so tired voice in this. This isn't merely an R/S story, but more of a gen story about the staff at Hogwart's and the conversations they have are hilarious. The subject at hand is the Christmas festivities and the worry over what sort of mayhem the Marauder's most certainly will bring. Within all this we see Minerva's regard and affection for Lupin and Black. It's a short fun read. Give it a try, won't you?

Rough Times ny [livejournal.com profile] fullmoon_dreams

On the surface this is a charming story about the Marauders and Lily going on a magic-free camping trip (only a Muggleborn would think this was a good idea), but underneath is a story about the struggle of a gay couple grappling with whether or not to come out to their friends. The author takes 70's sensibilities into account without over doing it. This is really a charming story and well worth the read.

I Crave Your Mouth by [livejournal.com profile] remuslives23

Like any written by [livejournal.com profile] remuslives23, this is hot as blazes. Sirius provides a very Merry Christmas for Remus. *grins*


Kinky Kristmas at Daily Deviant

Art

Hottest Day in Summer Draco/Astoria

This is a really beautiful piece of art. The first thing I thought of was Adam and Eve in the garden, it has that sort of peaceful sensuality to it.

...and to all a good night / Merry Christmas, Git Remus/Severus/Sirius

Oh, holy shit. This is the funniest thing I have ever seen. Click the link. Click it now.

Fic

Take Two Drinks and Hex Me in the Morning Snape/Lupin

This is probably my least favorite pairings, well, okay, my least favorite is a toss up between Sirius/Harry and Sirius/Snape, but none of this is really the point. The point is that I am reccing a fic for a pairing I don't like. Savvy? This fic is laugh out loud hilarious and you need to click the link the and go read it immediately! Siriusly! This fic is well-written, hot, and features a drunk!virgin!Severus. Go read! Do it now!

Pulse Sirius/Charlie, Remus/Kingsley

Set in OotP, Sirius needs a breath of fresh air and finds himself in a Muggle club. People have moved on with their lives but Sirius hasn't. Seeing the evidence of that hurts, but someone is there to ease Sirius' pain, at least a little. I liked this story for its differences from the usual 'of course, Remus and Sirius get back together' storyline. Remus has a life of his own and Sirius is trying to figure out what his is.

Oh, man, so tired from catching up on reading. I'll have a personal post maybe tomorrow. For now, bed.
I need a beta for my [livejournal.com profile] rs_small_gifts . Please, please someone say they can. It is almost finished and it won't be long. Probably less than 3,000 words.

While I've got a moment with my mother's computer I just wanted to wish all of my American flisters a happy Thanksgiving. And for all of you, American or not, lots of good thoughts from me to you. I'll be over here again tomorrow to work on my rs_small_gifts piece and will put up a longer post then.

( Nov. 21st, 2010 08:51 pm)
I want to apologize for any important posts I may have missed recently. My computer's screen was smashed by Lutzi and am without a computer except for on the weekends when I borrow my mother's. I'll get it fixed I'm not just not sure. I would elaborate more but she is pushing me out the door as we speak. Also to add to my woes, my phone is not letting me post and leaving comments is temperamental as hell. It usually takes 4 tries, by which point I am tired of writing the same thing over and over. I can be contacted most easily by email at teutonic.titwillow@gmail.com. PMs are not working at all for me on the phone.

I'll try and catch up in on Friday. Until, take care all.

Anatomy of a Wound )

Congratulations to Team Canon for taking first place in the R/S Games!

And thank you mods for always putting on such a fantastic fest. I had a really great time! I'm always so sad to see the games come to an end.

I'll repost Anatomy of a Wound in the next few weeks. I want to go over it once more and first I need to finish up my Kinky Kristmas and R/S Small Gifts pieces. One just needs editing, the other is about a third of the way complete. I'll wrap it up this weekend.

My awards are under the cut. I swear, the games always makes me feel so loved. :)My awards, hee! )

Fortune's Fool written by [info]eprime. PG13

I need to have surgery more often. I have been such a lucky fangirl this week. [livejournal.com profile] eprime  wrote me this sinfully delicious piece to help me recover. Trust me, I feel better already. :) I love so many things about this piece. It has such a 70's feel to it, and despite being an AU, also feels very canon.  Like canon only nine degrees to the left. She's able to create that feel because the war atmosphere is very present, even though it is shifted to the background a bit.

The whole piece absolutely smolders with sexual tension, you don't even miss that there is no smut. Sirius is not shy at all about going after what he wants, undaunted as he spits one rejected cheesy come on after another. His ego is made of Teflon, this one. I really love game of cat and mouse he's playing with Remus, and of course, in the end Sirius gets his man. This one is precious and not to be missed

The Art of Forgetting by [livejournal.com profile] musem87 Remus/Sirius, James/Lily, Remus/Sirius/James/Lily NC17

This was written for me by [livejournal.com profile] museme87 and I couldn't possibly love this more than I already do. [livejournal.com profile] museme87 is very in touch with Sirius' emotions, his reactions and feelings, and they all seem very natural and human to me, and very, very Sirius. She doesn't leave out the messy, either. This is and isn't just straight porn. Sirius wants what he shouldn't and blurts his thoughts to James, who, as it happens, was already on the same page. You have two spoiled boys who are pretty used to getting what they want, the fact that they might not ought to want it occurs to them, but is brushed away readily enough.

[livejournal.com profile] museme87 doesn't leave out the automatic reactions of jealousy and insecurity, which I think is what makes this so real to me, despite it being pretty much a fantasy set-up. She lets you in to see Sirius' thought process and by extension, Remus' as well. You seem them both enjoying partners they've perhaps only fantasized about before, but you also see that they are grounded in each other. You know by the end whose touch they really crave and know that the situation is one brought together more by the need to forget what they've seen, lose themselves a little in each other, and perhaps even tighten bonds that were already very close by taking care of each other.

To me, this was both touching and hot, and a reminder that the first war was nothing to take lightly. Give it a read, you won't be disappointed.

I doubt if I will be writing for this fest, because I have vowed to myself that my writing next year will slow down considerably and once all my obligations are met, do some writing that is just for me. So, I won't be doing anything for the this fest, but I did want to pimp it out!


[livejournal.com profile] hp_kinkfest
Prompt Submission: December 9-13
Prompt Claiming/Sign-ups: December 14-20
Posting: Begins January 25



Okay, now that I've done the pimping, let me show you one of the kinks the mods gave as an example of how to fill out a prompt. For a moment I saw stars. Siriusly. Here is is:

Kink: Docking
One to three pairings:Harry/Ron Remus/Sirius
Optional supplementary prompt: I'd like to see one of them being circumcised and the other not, and the uncircumcised partner offering to demonstrate what having a foreskin feels like.


Siriusly. Which, you know, rings my Remus is catholic bell, and that other bell that says all purebloods are uncut because they wouldn't disfigure their sons peckers. You know fruit of the loin and keeping the line pure, a penis is important to bringing forth the next generation of spoiled, arrogant, bigots. Um. So, this bunny may have to get written and hidden on the hard drive until the rs_small_gifts is written. Sort of as a carrot. I can share the porn once the other is written and beta'd and sent in.

All right. I'm off to go see my mom for awhile. Dad's left for Arkansas to go hunting with one of his brothers and she is alone. Wish me luck. Tonight and tomorrow I am finishing the rs_small_gifts which has been beastly with having so many ways to go. The bunny, he won't make up his mind.
