Title: Because You Already Voided the Warranty, So You Might As Well Make It Worse
Author: [personal profile] gracerene
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~3,450
Content/Warnings: Auror Partners, sex toys, mild D/s, banter, light bondage, blow jobs, facials, desk!sex, office!sex

Notes: Happy Birthday [personal profile] blithelybonny! You are such a delight, and it was wonderous getting to hang out with you earlier this year IRL. It took me awhile to figure out what direction I wanted to go with your prompt, and I hope you enjoy what I came up with. Wishing you a fabulous day and an even better year! <3

The always lovely [personal profile] alisanne post some DD ruminations which totally inspired me to take a think on my own participation in the [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant community.

I haven't been a member for all that long now--I officially joined in January 2016--and when I was invited, I told myself that, for as long as I could, I would try and write a different pairing every month (and for the major anon fests). So far, I'm mostly kept that promise. Technically, this past month, I had a repeat pairing with James Sirius/Teddy, but considering the fic also included H/D, I'm considering it different enough to count. ;)

Part of what I LOVE about [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant is the opportunity for me to really stretch my writing muscles. I try and use the space to really push myself and try out different pairings and kinks (of course) but also new styles or POVs or genres. I thought I'd list out some of my "firsts" below. :D

(also, be warned that all of the fics below are explicit, and most of them have additional warnings. some may also be locked on AO3 to those who have accounts, depending on content. read at your own risk!)

First time writing a pairing featuring an inanimate object: Take a Little Ride (Sirius/Motorcycle)

First time writing a threesome: Give In, Don't Fight It (Albus/James/Teddy)

First time writing femslash that wasn't just a PWP: the thrill of under you me (Cho/Lily Luna)

First time writing outsider (and child) POV: In Plain Sight (Ron/Victoire, POV Hugo)

First time writing in first person: Drunk on the Scent of Your Skin (Draco/Remus)

First time writing creature!fic: Bite to Break Skin (Draco/Theo)

First time writing about two main pairings and with more than two POVs in the same fic: Switch (James Sirius/Teddy and Draco/Harry) [not yet on AO3]

Woo! That was fun. I just love this comm SO MUCH! I was working on my contribution for August yesterday and I am feeling pretty excited about it. :)

...on Thursday. And this'll probably be my last wordcount post for a little while, because Life Stuff. Oh, Life Stuff. I am ready for you to be finished.

New words this week : 384 words and my July wordcount goal is met with 1814 / 1000. I upped that to 2500 words last week, knowing that'd be a stretch, and yep, not going to make it. I would like to break 2k, though, but this afternoon is basically all the writing time I'll have in the near future, so. Maybe?

WIPs worked on this week : 2, no new WIPs (yay!)

HP
You Believe in Love, I Believe in Fate aka Erised attempt #1 from 2015 : 51 words bringing the total up to 19179. Used this as a warm-up again.

pwp take 2 : 333 words which brings the total to 1377 words, and there is a blowjob-in-progress. Smut is progressing! Maybe I will finish this thing sometime this year!


July Reading : As of yesterday, I'm up to 1,405,642 and I'm quitting there because I know that's not an accurate number and it bothers me. I've started to do a lot of comfort reading, where I go back to fics I've read and loved and then skip through to read my favorite bits of them. I estimated as best I could, but it's impossible to get an accurate number anymore. I might try tracking this again in a different calmer month.

As many of you know, I've been participating in [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant since 2007. And, with the exception of the year of cancer, I haven't missed many months.
So I thought I'd compile some wacky statistics and see how that all has shaken out so far.

For me, the big draw of DD is to be able to write pairings and kinks I normally wouldn't. Things like The Fat Lady/Molly Weasley, or Wormtail wanking while in rat form (LMAO). And yes, I even managed copraphagy (scat) once.

Anyway, I figured I'd do some calculations and see just how much I rely on my OTP for DD.
And since I consider Harry/Draco my secondary OTP, I figured I'd throw them into the calculation, too. ;)

Out of 113 total posts, I have written 23 Snarry fics, 9 Harry/Draco, and 4 Drapery. Which means about 20% of the time I write my OTP, H/D is 7%, and Drapery is 3%. That puts me at around 30% overall.
And, considering I often write my OTP for DD when desperate (I call it committing emergency Snarry *g*), that's not too bad, IMO.
FYI, I left out fics with background Snarry (where they are just mentioned as couple, but not the focus of the story).

Writing 70% 'other stuff' counts as being adventurous as far as I'm concerned. *g*

Right, how about you guys?
Especially those of you in DD, let's see your stats. I'm curious!

I'm back, alive and whole, which is a trend I love coming from vacations. :)

I had a lovely time and saw beautiful places. Man, Aruba! That's the place to live. Mark my words, I'm going to retire there.

I saw dolphins at the sea! Like, we had a little window in our cabin that I made my reading nook because I'm a nerd that spend most of her time reading \o/ and I looked out and hey, dolphins! They followed the ship just a few minutes but it was beyond awesome.

I missed you so, so much! How have you been? I'm going to try to catch up – I already did with some verses I'm following (see me being a nerd ^^) but it's a slow process. ^^ Tell me what you've been up to!

I cannot believe I missed prompting for [livejournal.com profile] hp_creatures and [livejournal.com profile] hd_fanart. I was so sure I had a day or two after I came back or else I'd left my prompts to be prompted by proxy as I've done in the past. :((((( But I'm excited because there are super cool prompts.

And [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised sign-ups open next Friday! Yep, that Friday 28th. ;) ;) ;) It's going to be a blast this year, and I hope to see you there. <3

I was halfway through my train commute today when it went like this:


 
 
My Body: Oh! You're in trouble!
 
My Brain: What are you talking about? I had oatmeal for breakfast this morning.
 
Body: Haha! Are you sure? 'Cause I think you had a jar of Ghost Peppers instead!
 
Brain: WTF!? No! I had oatmeal! Oatmeal, do you hear me!
 
Body: Muahahaha! And just how many stops is it before you get off?
 
Brain: **whimpers**
 
 
 
So, yeah, while no actual carnage ensued in public, thanks be, I was still most emphatically not happy. What a great way to start my week. Don't you agree?

I am still baffled, I love this little competition and joined only because I thought to fill the number of writers, so that it didn't have to be canceled. And now I won the first week, how on earth did that happen? Especially seeing how many truly awesome writers are participating,I am overjoyed! Thank you for voting for me! Now I hope to get at least to week 3. Winning first week and then beining voted out in Week 2 would be embarrassing no?

I LOVE this fest! I have a not-so-secret love of creature!fic and this fest is the perfect place to get my fix. Not to mention, the fest is open pairing, so while there are plenty of H/D options for the Drarry lovers, there are also a ton of other intriguing pairings to explore. If you have a creature-related plot bunny, you should stop by the prompting post. You don't have to participate to prompt, and the more prompts, the better, in my book!
