The R/S Games have once again come to an end. It's been a wonderful month of fic and art and I am sad to see it end. Shame we can't play year round, but then what would we look forward to?

Sand Castles, Or The Lack Thereof They've come such a long way this past year, Remus thinks, you would hardly recognize them for the shy, cringing boy freed from his relative's neglect and the broken man liberated from prison.

Sirius, Harry, and Remus are happy family at the beach. Do I need to say anything more?

If I Fell Healer Sirius Black knew he shouldn't fall in love with a patient, especially when the patient was his cousin's boyfriend.
Very cute story with an interesting premise.

A Little Death During the summer holidays Sirius overhears his father and his cousin’s awful fiancé talking about abducting an illegal animagus. He and the Marauders set out to save the boy.

The author noted that this story was influenced by the movie Stand By Me. I definitely got that feeling from this. Its an incredibly enjoyable read with a surprise ending.

Team Canon
Confessions on Hold I'm really all right," Remus repeated, wiping at his eye. "Sometimes I just get overwhelmed, you know that." He let out a shuddering breath and smiled. "What was it you wanted, now?" Sirius paused, hand half on Remus' elbow. Even though he had worked up the courage, telling Remus now would probably just make the poor boy cry more. Shaking his head slowly, Sirius tried to force a small smile.

Gorgeous MWPP Era art.

All Love Is Sweet How can you tell when things changed? And when do you stop living in the past and start embracing the future?

Lovely, bittersweet piece; the author did a great job creating first war ambience.

And that, as they say, is that. It's been an awfully good games. Kind of melancholy this year. The stories and art themselves, I mean. On the whole, there was not a lot of happiness to be had in the lives of our boys. The quality was excellent though. I've had such a good time. Ah, well. Until next year.

My Sirius/Hermione recs on crack_broom this month )

What else, what else... well, in just over a month we'll be getting more R/S at [ profile] rs_small_gifts. EDIT: Eeek! I forgot! Bite size smutty puppy goodness is coming next month from [ profile] mp_ldws! I don't want to do the space story anymore. I must have been high. Plus, I really want to keep the piece small. Has anyone seen [ profile] gryffindor_j's prompts?

*wipes a little drool*

I want #2 so bad I can taste it. I don't know if I'll try for it, though. I mean, she's pretty well known, which means I'm more than a little intimidated. It feels more like a [ profile] remuslives23 or [ profile] eprime prompt, anyway. Also, I'm already in enough trouble with Hell at the moment.

*looks at Kinky Kristmas fic*

Still... might work up the courage to try.

Alright, off to do the newsletter.

You'll have to leave comments on my dreamwidth site, but I have a question. Do any of you have a favorite R/S vid? Something that has hopefully not been posted to crack_broom. I've got all of my other fics and art picked out, but I need some vid recs and as vids aren't something I'm really into, I am asking the flist for help. I'll look through whatever you recommend and pick my favorite.

Thank you in advance for the hand.

I've left prompts at both [ profile] hd_fan_fair  and [ profile] teddy_fest , both with background R/S and both got picked. How awesome is that? The [ profile] teddy_fest  fic has James II/Teddy as the main pairing. I only left the prompt at [ profile] hd_fan_fair  to be supportive of the mods who have been so supportive of [ profile] rs_career_fest  but now I am really excited to see what gets done with the prompt. I wish I could write H/D but I can't wrap my head around antagonistic pairings, at least not for writing, anyway. I've read a little H/D, mostly that of [ profile] catsintheattic  and by the end of the fics I was convinced, but I still can't write it. Probably for the same reasons I can't write Sirius/Snape. I can see the appeal of the pairing but I have a feeling that if I tried both boys would be horribly OOC as I tried to make them both behave nicely and be all saccharine. Anyway, I just love the thought of Greece as a getaway for spoiled purebloods who all have summer homes there or something. Of course, this love is heavily influenced by [ profile] toujours_nigel  who put it in my head in the first place with Cygnus Black way back, but whatever. I still love it and I love it even more when pureblood religious roots are steeped in Greek mythology. Thank you, [ profile] toujours_nigel  for that. I didn't include that in the prompt but maybe it will get worked in.

[ profile] rs_career_fest  is almost completely wrapped up and I still can't go over how awesome all the fic and art was and what a great response the fest had. Reveals go up in a a little under a week and I can't wait to for everyone to see who wrote what. I still have a few reviews to leave which I will get done before the reveals are up.

Next on my plate is a fic for [ profile] eprime  who beat [ profile] werewolfsfan  in an epic bidding war (okay, maybe only epic to me but it still made me grin and blush, those two were fierce!) at [ profile] gulf_aid_now . I have ideas and ideas and ideas. I've got the first sentence written and after that it pretty much writes itself. As soon as my reviews for [ profile] rs_career_fest  are posted that will be next priority.

After that I start major research for a fic that is probably beyond my actual abilities but I'm going to try anyway. I can't say more than that because it is for [ profile] rs_games . Suffice it to say, I am intimidated and have probably bitten off more than I can actually chew.

And lastly I've been thinking of posting my [ profile] bigbangblackout  fic to my AO3 account. It is a huge oneshot and I've gotten complaints at grangerenchanted and that I should have broken the fic down into chapters but I seriously don't know where the breaks would be. So. Still hemming and hawing over that.

Not much RL to tell that is worth telling so I'll let this be a fandom post. I really wish I could rec all the [ profile] rs_career_fest  fics but as a mod that sort of thing is frowned upon I understand. So I will resist. Though, I signed up for [ profile] crack_broom  and I'm flying in September. I can rec there, can't I? Thoughts?

Anyway, I haven't had a how are y'all post in awhile, so how are all of y'all doing?
