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, rs_small_gifts
'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 recsArtTogether for the Holidays
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
I am very familiar with this artist. *g* She burst onto the R/S scene as an artist in much the way that eprime
burst onto the R/S scene as a writer. Fortuitous then that these three illustrations are from 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.FicStaff Infection
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
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
Like any written by remuslives23
, this is hot as blazes. Sirius provides a very Merry Christmas for Remus. *grins*Kinky Kristmas at Daily DeviantArtHottest Day in Summer
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
Oh, holy shit. This is the funniest thing I have ever seen. Click the link. Click it now.FicTake Two Drinks and Hex Me in the Morning
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
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.
