A/N: This was written for [community profile] hd_holidays for [profile] amythystluna. Special thanks to [personal profile] thenotoriousso4, [personal profile] norgbelulah and [personal profile] ellensmithee for putting up with me while I tried to pare my ideas down into something that could actually be accomplished in the given time frame. Once I started thinking in non-linear scenes, I couldn't stop them from coming. The inspiration for the cottage is based on this image from my recipient's prompt.

Title: Spring Street
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~25,000
Disclaimer: Anything you recognize belongs to JKR and Warner Brothers.
Warning(s): Highlight to read: Mild torture and violence, minor character death
Summary: Harry's been undercover for eight years, on a case that's going nowhere fast. Then Pansy Parkinson is kidnapped, and everything changes.
Author/Artist Note(s): Thanks so much to my wonderful betas who were patient and indulged me in a ton of hand-holding as I wrote.

I should probably note that any Americanisms are completely intentional, to contribute to the feel of the story, and that in a few places, I played fast and loose with the canon, though it's not a complete AU. Also, it may help if you (very slightly spoilerish, maybe, so highlight to read) picture the part of Mad Eye Moody's portrait as played by Edward G. Robinson.

* We have reached our destination (for now) safely and with very little drama. That's not always a given when traveling with so many hellmonkeys.

* I have decided to bring "The Dead Path" with me on our trip and try my luck at remembering to renew it online when it's time. I'm enjoying it a lot and I want to finish it in one go (I'm still not done with "Blind Sight" which I keep taking out of the library intermittently).

* I would like very much to have the time and concentration to write my [community profile] femgenficathon fic this weekend. We'll see if that happens. Everyone here goes to bed fairly early, so it's a possibility.

* Also, I have a lot of fic reading to catch up on since Teddy fest and the Next Gen darkfest are posting again. Yay!

* My parents don't keep garlic in the house. I don't understand these people at all.

* How is YOUR weekend going, flist?

Tomorrow I'll get my head back into fandomy stuff, but for tonight, this might be the most perfect thing EVER. Oh, Johnny Flynn. <3

Fanfic meme. Missed yesterday because of LJ being stupidpants, so, have two answers today.

8 – Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

I do write OCs, but generally not as main characters. I think maybe I'm afraid it would be harder for me to hold onto that canon universe if I built the story around a character who didn't exist there. I enjoy writing OCs, though, (Now, RPing was a very different experience for me with OCs. My three very favorite characters to RP were OCs. Then again, that was more of an original universe than anything.)

However, I absolutely love writing canon characters who are nearly OCs by virtue of very little canon about them being available. (My 17k [ profile] numb3rs_novella is one case of that.)

9 – Pairings – For each of the fandoms from day two, what are your three favorite pairings to write?

Hmm. I don't know if my answers are necessarily all that obvious. My favorite pairings to write aren't always the ones I write the most often. And my favorite pairings to write aren't always my favorite pairings to read. Plus, my favorite pairings to write have shifted and changed over the years. Sometimes I absolutely fall for a pairing and write a ton of them, then I lose interest, then something reminds me why I love that pairing and I'll write more. I guess for this one I'm going with my old standby pairings. These are the pairings that I consistently love to write. (Though in some cases I've only written them once or twice. Mostly the preceding paragraph applies to HP, I guess.)

Fandoms and pairings behind the cut )

OK, just got home from an amusement park with the hellmonkeys and I'm dead tired and will catch up and post a proper update tomorrow. <3

Title: Lip Service
Characters/Pairings: Lee Jordan/Adrian Pucey
Rating: NC-17
Other Warnings: Rimming, light bondage
Word Count: ~6,600
Summary/Description: Lee Jordan has a very big mouth. Adrian Pucey has a knack for invention.
Author's Notes: This was written for [info]daily_deviant for July 2011. Thanks to [ profile] ellensmithee, [ profile] wendynat, and [ profile] thenotoriousso4 for the betas! (Seriously, I used all three of them.) I haven't written anything this porny in ages. Honestly, I might have gone into a big of overkill with the porn.

Erotographomania - arousal from writing romantic or erotic letters or poems. I used several other monthly themes too (sensory deprivation, fingering, charms/talismans), but that's the big one. Anyway, enjoy! Thanks for reading!

* It's absurdly stressful to live in a house that your landlord is selling. I get all the joy of keeping the apartment in viewing shape, and none of the satisfaction if they get an offer (at this point I'm blissfully pretending that anyone who buys the house will happily keep us as tenants).

* I've been putting together combinations of HP Lego people that make me laugh, a lot. I may or may not have them acting out scenes from the [ profile] luciusbigbang that I'm writing with [ profile] ellensmithee.

* Weather is cooler today, and sunny.

* I've decided that I need to drop out of the [ profile] het_bigbang. Part of it is that I don't think this will be the same fic if I write it by myself, and part of it is that the deadline just feels looming, and I have more than 24k to write to meet the word count. So, [ profile] ellensmithee and I are still writing the Ian/Nikki (Numb3rs) multi-chaptered story, but we can't make promises to when we'll be done.

* Fanfic meme:

7 – Have you ever had a fic change your opinion of a character?

Oh, yes, yes, yes.

Way back when I was first getting into fandom, Chaos Rose's Algolagnia was probably the first fic that dramatically changed the way I saw characters. I never saw the dynamic between Lucius and Severus the same again. That story also changed the way that I've written fanon!Lucius since then (I don't necessarily consider the Lucius I write to be all that canon). Since then, I've come around on a lot of characters--characters I never would have realized I loved--through their portrayal in fic. It's what sold me on the HP next gen kids.

[ profile] norgbelulah's Carol Johnson (Justified) really made me take notice of a character that I hadn't given much attention to in the series.

And I know as soon as I hit "post", I'm going to think of, like, a dozen more examples. Anyway, my point is YES. I think that the right writer can definitely change my view on the characters, for good or for bad.

* So, how are YOU on this lovely Sunday, flist?

rillalicious: (Stranger)
* My thoughts are with Norway this morning. My heart goes out to the survivors and the rest of the country.

* Good luck to all the couples lining up at midnight to get their marriage licenses in NY. My city, in particular, is being awesome about accommodating people. Marriage might not be my gig personally, but anyone who wants to make it work should have the right to do it.

* Still have swollen glands up the right side of my throat and head, but other than that annoyance, I'm feeling much better. It's cooler today, and the farmer's market is going to be lovely.

* I think I had maybe forgotten how kind and awesome SS/HG readers are when it comes to reading WIPs. What sweet, thoughtful people. <3 to you guys.

* Fanfic meme for today:

6 – When you write, do you prefer writing male or female characters?

I was going to give this my pad answer of "I prefer writing characters who interest me", but on second thought, I don't know how true that is. I think by and large I write more male characters, but they tend to be very specific characters, with qualities that I relate to (there's also a group of characters I like with qualities that I don't have, but that I admire, but I think that's a whole different discussion). So I think that the qualities that draw me in to a character and make me want to write that character are more often given to male characters in fiction/television/movies (which totally sucks in its own right). There are exceptions to this--Justified, for instance. Give me ANY female character in Justified and I could absolutely obsess over writing her.

Also, there's a whole category of female characters I find really interesting whom I haven't written for one reason or another. Madeline and Fiona from Burn Notice, for example. I think I love every female character in Sons of Anarchy, but I don't know enough about either guns or bikes to write in that fandom. I've totally neglected the female characters in Numb3rs fandom even though I love them all, mainly because the David/Colby dynamic just speaks louder in my head. (Have I never mentioned how badly I wanted to write Millie/Alan?)

I don't know. I carry a lot of guilt over how much easier it seems to be for me to write male characters.

The rest of the questions )

* And it's been a while since I've extolled the virtues of Johnny Flynn. No words for how I feel about this man and his incredible talent. Just none. Here, friends, have some music this morning:

rillalicious: (Dustfinger)
* Good news! I did not succumb to my mystery illness during the night! And the migraine meds I took this morning have eased the headache a bit. Still, I would not recommend being feverish when the heat index is 115 and you live on the second floor without AC. /deep thoughts by Rilla

* I am behind on that fanfic meme, so here are yesterday's and today's:

Behind the cut for those who don't care )

* I haven't mentioned it here yet, so I will do so now. [ profile] norgbelulah is working on an AMAZING Justified AU fic and I've had the privilege of getting glimpses as she goes and OMG, you guys. You all will HAVE to read it when she's done. So much love for this premise that I can't stand it.

* I still have a ton of reading to catch up on, but unfortunately this migrainy thing killed my ability to work yesterday, so I have to catch up on that first. Stupid grown up responsibility.

* I used my birthday Barnes and Noble gift cards to finally get copies of our own of Inkspell and Inkdeath (we've taken them out of the library so many times that I'm starting to feel guilty). Prepare for an upcoming diatribe on how I will never understand why these books didn't reach the levels of popularity of the Potter books. I adore them so much. I can't even tell you guys. Read them. Read them and love them. And if you have read them, I want to discuss them SO BADLY I CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU.

* Way behind on summer TV viewing. I'm thinking of cutting my losses with a few shows and just trying to catch up on Burn Notice as I can. I still haven't seen every ep of last seasons H5-0, for goodness sake. This is why I went years without watching TV. I'm not good at it.

* Okay, we're off again to suck up some free air conditioning. I know I owe people comments and I swear I'll try to catch up this evening.

* So, let me know what's up with all of you, flist! <3

rillalicious: (Neville brave)
* Updated The Librarian's Debt this morning. This story is so very much fun to write. I'm glad people seem to be enjoying it!

* Just got home from a second viewing of DH, which I loved even more the second time around. Plus, there was blessed air conditioning (seeing as the heat index is 115 degrees at the moment, that was the important part). Also, I came home to realize that I might have strep throat (!!!). Initially I thought it was a combination of heat and allergies. Anyway, no one wants to hear about that! So have my thoughts on the movie, take two:

Even more spoilers for Deathly Hallows Part 2 )

* Be well, flist!

* Finally an SS/HG update from me. The next chapter of The Librarian's Debt is nearly finished and should be off to beta by this evening. I am enjoying the heck out of writing this one. It's been a lot of fun to get back to writing a WIP after posting nothing but finished fics for ages. And [ profile] scatteredlogic, I *finally* got a pulse on your birthday fic prompt request, but I have a feeling the finished product might be a little lengthy. I'm working on it, though! It was very much inspired by seeing DH pt 2.

* I'm a bit overwhelmed by all of the fic that I need to catch up on reading. [ profile] numb3rs_novella and [ profile] teddy_fest started posting this week, I'm behind on reading at [ profile] nextgendarkfest, and the [ profile] crowley_bigbang will be posting soon as well. So much good stuff to read!

rillalicious: (Caroline/Colby - Wherever I'm With You)
Posting day is here! Hurrah! (And since I have a feeling I'll be sleeping in, I'm posting now.) I had so, so, so much fun working on this fic that I can't even tell you guys. I wanted to write this story since I first saw the episode. I tried very hard to make this as un-spammy as possible, but the format really only works with individual chapters, so I hope I didn't clog up your flists too badly, friends.

* Thank you for the birthday wishes, flist! ♥ Had a lovely nearly-my-birthday weekend with DH pt 2, Shakespeare in the park, and gourmet cupcakes. Also got to see [ profile] thistle_verse and her wonderful family the other day. Had so much fun together. We miss them terribly.

* Making plans to see DH pt 2 in the theatre again soon. Gah, it's difficult to plan these things around 4 hellmonkeys when you have virtually no childcare.

* Speaking of hellmonkeys, they and the boyfriend got together and made me an adorable little Lego Weasley garden with Molly and Arthur and Fred and George for my birthday. ♥ I shall fill it with Weasleys and love. ♥

* My bare wall saga! I am framing art and getting it up on the walls. I will post pictures soon.

* It's hot and sticky. This is not news. But you guys. Summer is half over. How did that happen already?

* Writing. I have two SS/HG docs open at the moment. Huzzah!

* Tonight I'm finally going to watch Crazy Heart, which I bought myself for my birthday.

* Fanfic meme, Day 2:

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

Behind the cut because this got long )

* Have a happy, happy Tuesday, flist!
