Yep. My journal is Friends Only, which, I know, kind of defeats the purpose of an on line journal. But hey, look what a pretty banner I've got. And did you notice they've switched their shorts? I wonder how that happened... what do you think?

Okay, not Friends Only. ^^ All fandom content is pretty much unlocked, general whining and personal stuff that is locked. But if you want to be added, just leave a comment. :)

I've been wanting to do one of these since [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore and [livejournal.com profile] firethesound made theirs. And then [livejournal.com profile] gracerene did the Snowflake challenge and challenged people to make them; I went ahead and made mine, too. I blame them.

Likes, dislikes and everything in between. I warn you, I went MAD. Seriously. I'm ridiculous. ^^

My list )


So. *scuffs feet* How are you today, you dear and tormented livejournal friend? Did someone make a post filled with endless babbling and contradictions? I'm sorry! <3

2017 Harry Potter Fests – Posting Dates and Masterlists (now with DW links!) )

If you see a mistake or an omission, please let me know! If I missed a fest that is running this year, also let me know, and if you know a link to a DW community that I don't have here, again, please do let me know. :)

More dates will be added as Fests make announcements. Please bear in mind that many of the DW communities are only back ups and/or not active; the fests themselves will actually post at livejournal! Just keep your eyes open so you won't miss anything. :)

For only Harry/Draco Fests check [profile] vaysh's H/D Fests in 2017. And for more news on fests and prompt communities [profile] potterfests is the place to go. :)

I hope this is useful! ♥

(This entry probably makes a bit more sense at livejournal ^^)

*mutters* And they say fandom is ~dying~ I spent all my afternoon yesterday coding. . . ;)

Prompting is open at [community profile] party_4_potter! A surprise Birthday Party Draco's organising for Harry. :D I hope I can stop by and leave some yummy prompts soon! Please stop by and help celebrate Harry on his birthday. <3

And some recs from [livejournal.com profile] hprarefest, which is posting right now! God, I'm so behind with my recs. I have stuff from MONTHS ago that I meant to rec and yet – lamo is me. But I'm trying to do better, so here I offer some Rare Pair goodies.

Multi-ship slash recs. Including: Harry/Draco, Albus/Scorpius, Snape/Draco, and Ginny/Luna. )

And don't forget to leave some love for the authors, man. Artists and writers ROCK. They deserve all our love, no? Come on! :D

Finally uploaded my new layout for DW. Check it out: [personal profile] capitu. I think like it. :) I sort of had it for ages but it needed some edits here and there, plus I'm fond of my LJ layout so then I figured, I could totally use it for DW. I'm not sure I'm going to get used to it, but for now, hey. Plus, I'm having a horrible week and at least I have this going for me, new fancy layout. ^^

I've been wanting very much to make a rec post for ages. I also figured there's no better way to improve your mood than sharing some goodies, no? :) These are all sort of Teddy-centred. At least he's half the pair.

4 Next Gen Recs, two Teddy/James and two Teddy/Scorpius. )

Hope you check them out!

And don't forget to stop by [livejournal.com profile] hp_crossgenfest! Claiming is still Open over there. <3

Oh, oh! I totally forgot. Author offerings are open at [livejournal.com profile] hp_podfic_fest! This basically mean you offer your stories (as many or as few as you want) for podficcers to read during the fest. It's brilliant! Consider offering some of your gorgeous fic, people! :)

7 Recs including: Teddy/Scorpius, Sirius/Harry, Harry/Ron/Draco, Millicent/Pansy, James/Al and 2 Draco/Al )

Yeah, I'm talking to you. <3

So I had the best birthday. :D I'm going to skip the whole bit where I tell you how depressed and stressed I've been because my kitchen is still not ready. I'm going to skip right over it and tell you how I woke up on Sunday, being away for the weekend, to livejournal notifications telling me how I have the most amazing friends in the history of ever.

I'm not going to even try to pretend I'm embarrassed by the amount of hung!fic and art I got. I'm just going to revel in the fact that my flist knows me so well and roll in that love. *rolls in it*

Seriously, you guys are amazing. I wasn't expecting this. I've had a couple of hard weeks and I honestly wasn't expecting this. Waking up, logging in and see so many messages and posts and gifts it was—I almost have no words, only I have all the words and you're probably tired to hearing but I can't help myself. You guys mean so much to me. You probably think it's just a thing I say, but you have no idea how my life is so much richer and better because you're all part of it.

starf Today I realised I actually stopped smoking! \o/ This is so super! Like, today I thought how it's been weeks since my last cigarette (because I totally fell off and smoked since I first decided to quit) and for the last week or so I haven't thought of buying one more, or how much I miss that first drag of the day and things, which I know sounds disgusting to people who doesn't smoke but those who do (or did) know what I'm talking about. ^^ So yay!

starp So much claiming and prompting going!



And that's all I remember right now. What else is going on that you remember?

starb I think finally LJ is sending notifications? I got one today after, well, I don't really know how long it's been since these haven't been working. But they are back-ish?

Though speaking of LJ, my LJ app hasn't worked in several weeks, is anyone else having the same problem? The app opens and all, but when I try to look at my feed it comes empty. :/ If it's not one thing is another.

I think I'm doing this in pairs. :D But hey, still doing it! I feel very accomplished. I think this 10 days of the Snowflake Challenge alone I've posted more than in a whole month any given time. Sorry? ^^

Moving on. . .

Day 9
Send feedback to two fannish people — they can be anyone you want: a writer who’s made you happy, a moderator of your favorite exchange (not us!), a fanartist you avidly follow… There are so many possibilities. Just let someone know you appreciate their work.

Day 10
In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Day 7
In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Draft a critical essay about a particular media. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of a Broadway show, a movie, a concert, a poetry reading, a museum trip, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Compose some limericks, haikus, free-form poetry, 5-word stories. Document a particular bit of real person canon. Take some pictures. Draw a stick-figure comic. Create something.

I know a lot of people are backing up at DW. I'm capitu over there as well! And I actually went ahead and imported [livejournal.com profile] my_drarry_recs, which is really the content I want to keep safe. I need to get the hang of crossposting. Ugh, is it really worth the hassle? D: LJ kills me.

Onto something else now: I've always wanted to do the Sowflake Challenge. And this year my dearest friend [livejournal.com profile] tjs_whatnot volunteered to help run the challenge. I think it's a sign this year is the year! And therefor:

I've been wanting to make a rec post for a few days now, but it just didn't feel right. Still doesn't, you know?

But then I thought how all the artists and authors in fandom shared their stories and art with us and I wanted to celebrate that, and maybe keep fandom the positive and safe place that it's always been. <3

So, some [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest Recs, including:
James/Teddy, Albus/Scorpius, James/Al and the Lovegood- Scamander Twins. )

Also, don't forget [livejournal.com profile] hp_goldenage is still taking prompts for the Salt and Pepper fest until November 14th. Please stop by by the prompting post and leave some fun inspiration for writers and artists. <3

And lastly, [livejournal.com profile] hd_fanart fest and [livejournal.com profile] interhouse_fest are also posting right now, and I need to catch up with them. I'm probably missing more fests posting and prompting and claiming right now. Do share your recs and links if you can. <3

I meant to make myself some ~sexy Next Gen icons, but boy, sometimes finding the right image is hard. Also very distracting. Like, you're looking for a "Scorpius" and next thing you know you're in YouTube watching a puppy taking his first bubble bath. Seriously, how did that happen? :D

Anyway, so I decided to go with minimalist. Much easier to achieve. ^^

They didn't turn out all bad, I thought, so I ended up making all Next Gen characters icons. They are basically like this icon *points to icon* with different (and random) colour schemes. I figured I could share them in case someone, you know, wants them. :)

Feel free to take one, or a few, or none, it's all good. ^^ If you want one in a specific colour, I can do that, let me know. :)

Today [livejournal.com profile] gracerene posted the the last instalment in her 50 Reasons to Have Sex Series (or here at AO3) and in a way it almost feels like the end of an era.

First off, I cannot believe how naughty she is! :D I think of Grace, super organised and efficient and she's written some of the dirtiest stuff ever. *glee* I remember back when Grace mentioned she had this idea for a series two years ago, and I offered, in case she needed an extra pair of eyes, to Alpha read for her. She took me on that offer and from then on it's been a journey.

I've pre-read 90/95% of the Reasons – she did manage to surprise me a couple of times when she wrote me a reason for my birthday and then again after I was sick – and I've loved being part of this.

I'm so proud of having been there to see her do this. I've seen her grow as a writer; trying different pairs, she's such a prolific and diverse writer. I've seen her challenge herself and write angsty stuff, funny stuff, epic stories, and always with a touch of absolute filth in the best ways.

I'm thrilled she ~finished this chapter in her writer life. There's the tiniest bit of bittersweetness, because I will miss the series and the regular posts with Reasons so damn much, but it's mostly pride and happiness because OH MY GOD, she gave us so much happy times with each post. I mean, there have been 50 Reasons to Have Sex posts!

Of course, I don't mean literally finished this chapter, because in case you missed it, she has a post up asking for people to prompt her a new reason or request to continue certain reasons. It's right over HERE. :D

[livejournal.com profile] gracerene, congratulations, lovely! Thank you for letting me part of this. I know it all started as fun, but the friendship all the Reasons gave us, is one of the greatest gifts. <3

I've been meaning to make a rec post for ages. I have a bunch of stories I've been wanting to rec for, god, weeks, months, even. ^^ So I decided to sort of sort them out by character, because it's more fun if I give myself extra work, also so I can keep posting them. :D

So, I'm offering you some recs featuring one Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy, according to HPwikia (do we even know if wikia is that reliable? At any rate, I like the ring of it, so I'm totally headcanon-ing the Hyperion).

Recs, including Scorpius/Al, James/Scorpius, Teddy/Scorpius. )

I think I'm in dire need of a Scorpius icon. Must work on that. ^^

Beta reading and Alpha reading for me is one of the most fulfilling things I can do.

When I alpha/beta read a story I give my everything. I try and do my best to make that story the best it can be. I love giving feedback to the author, help them in the parts they are having difficulty, give suggestions, even if those only serve for the author to realise they want to do something else, polish any little typo or mistake that went past the author, flail and get silly and excited in the parts I loved the most.

Beta reading takes time and effort, but in my experience 100% of the time the author is absolutely thrilled and thankful you're dedicating your time to work with them and help them.

Beta reading is a bit like being the magic behind the magic. And the end of the day, there are few things better than knowing you were there for someone when they needed, that you helped an author to work on something they can be proud and happy with, and often times it's the beginning a beautiful friendship.

[livejournal.com profile] hd_erised is asking for Beta Readers volunteers for the fest. If you have a moment, please consider signing up as a Beta. I know authors and artists alike will be very grateful if you can help them. :)
