hd_cliche - a low stress, mini-fest celebrating well-loved cliches in the Harry/Draco Fandom!
So, I've signed up for HD Cliche Fests this year and as usual my ideas are overwhelming my actual abilities and I've made three starts with nothing much concrete. However, I like having a deadline and a beta always helps keep me focused.
I've claimed the following cliches:
Cliche Choice #1: Hogwarts professors
( Collapse )
Author: Kitty September
Characters/Pairings: Millicent Bulstrode/Daphne Greengrass
Kinks/Themes Chosen: Coitus a unda (AKA undinism): sex in/underwater
Other Warnings/Content: Curvophilia, finger fucking, PWP.
Word Count: 1200
Summary/Description: Daphne and Millie go swimming, and Daphne can't get enough of her gorgeous girlfriend. One thing leads to another.
Author's Notes: Thank you to LQ for the last minute beta! Her input helped flesh out this little ficlet and I'm deeply appreciative. Any remaining issues or errors are all my own.
It is due on the 24th (it kind of snuck up on me with work being evil) so a quick turn around this weekend would be amazing!
I'm just over half way through my 200k pledge for [Unknown LJ tag] and that has been almost all fan fic so it is time to pick up my novel writing game.
I am also going to try and follow through on my quality not quantity promise which I immediately failed at during the first few months of this year.
I'm planning to do the following fests and challenges:
- daily_deviant (monthly for now - I post on the 24th)
- hd_erised (if I get in)
I currently have submissions in or coming up in: hp_3somes and femmefest. I've also got a fic about to be ready for the capreversebb. And I'll probably allow myself one additional femslash fest or bingo or something if one catches my eye at the right time and a very few short kinkmeme and rarepair_shorts fills.Apart from those fests I'll allow myself to add to Hunters and Hellblazers when I FINALLY catch up on the last entire season of Supernatural (oops).
I'll also post the sequel to Shadows of Seduction (which was last year's Erised fic); the working title is Secrets of Sedition and it's about twice as long as the original already, typical. I've also got a lot of work done on what was meant to be my DTH fic but life happened, so I may start posting that as a WIP but I'll try have it mostly finished before doing so. Everything else should be on my manuscript.
Now I've told the world, I have to stick to it... or at least that's the plan. Knowing me, inspiration will strike at odd hours and my muse will run away with me again in who knows what direction, but at least I'm trying!
Word Count: 17,563
Warnings/Content: mild swearing, canon-typical violence, a wild disregard for the laws of time and space
Summary: Hermione would like to think that she was old enough and mature enough to have a handle on her temper, only clearly she didn't, because it was 1991 and she was eleven. Again. Over a stupid slur and Pansy Parkinson being her predictably spiteful self.
Notes: This was my first time writing femslash and my first time writing a threesome, and it was certainly an interesting challenge! I hope you enjoy the story, kitty :) It was good fun to write. Thank you Savannah for all your hard work and for all the patience. Thank you also to my beta Cali, for kicking my ass over my first draft and making me start over. Any remaining mistakes are my own.
Read on AO3
I utterly adore this fic - it's one of the best gifts I've been given as part of a fest. The mystery author has managed to touche on so many of my favourite things. It is everything I love. The tropes, the twists, the writing, the pacing, the characterisation. It's mature and complex but nothing gets in the way of the story which is dramatic enough to carry its own without overwhelming what is a very well treated and delightfully realistic blossoming poly romance. Utterly wonderful.
Please give it a shot and go show the wonderful author some much deserved love: Read on AO3 it's brilliant.My own fic for the fest is also up, over on the fest LJ, so maybe check out the fest and see if there's anything else that catches your eye too?
Kinks/Themes Chosen: claustrophilia: arousal by confined spaces
Other Warnings/Content: Handjobs, non-penetrative sex, semi-public sex, workplace sex, endytophilia (sexual partners who remain clothed), mild olfactophilia (smell/scent kink), some borderline negative self-talk, implied bottom Harry, turning trauma into kink.
Word Count: 1220
Summary/Description: Harry and Malfoy get a little messy in an MLE supply closet.Author's Notes: Love and kittens for carpemermaid for reassuring my muse and ensuring my spelling and grammar isn't too atrocious.
This is my first official Daily Deviant fic, oh my gosh, etc!
Daily Deviant Link: Really Messed Up
PS: it's not actually that messed up for a kink fic, just messy.
It's Harry/Draco smut for the monthly theme of 'claustrophilia: arousal by confined spaces'. No major warnings apply so far -- unless you count blatant PWP and smut I suppose.
- Mon: was okay, although I did have to work super late, I was lulled into false sense of security about it being a normal week.
- Tues: my spouse rode into a car and hurt his leg but is otherwise okay. Still scary - this is his second car related incident in the last 6 months. Melbourne traffic is scary.
- Wed: some unnamed and unknown person backed into our car which will now be in the shop for a week and insurance excess is almost as bad as the amount our premiums will be going up from losing our no-claims ever bonus.
- Thurs: our brand new PS4 pro had a mortal malfunction, taking with it about 8 years worth of Diablo 3 grinding (for me, not my spouse because he had his backing up to the cloud but the settings hadn't carried over or something, and we've already wiped and sold the old PS4). This may not sound bad to some, but I nearly cried.
- Fri: spouse got surgery and I've spent the weekend playing nursemaid.
AND... I have a job interview next Tuesday and forgot to go shopping.
Sorry I've been not around, life is kind of demanding my attention. I'm alright. None of this is tragic but I am stressed an a little bit more useless than usual.
So… the goal of Femslash February is to write (or otherwise create) 2 or more femslash works in February.
If any of my followers or fandom friends want to take up the challenge, then the idea is that I will match you. Assuming it’s a pairing or fandom I can write I will also create an additional work for your fave pairing/s – I won’t do them in Feb but I will do them by the end of 2017 – so the aim is that not only will you have created a work or three for your fave pairings in February but by the end of the year so will I (for the same pairing if I can). Double the femslash!
Would anyone be interested in this?
