So a while back my lovely Britpicker, the wonderful [personal profile] smallhobbit, took ficlet prompts, and I asked for Snarry (like I do).

Well, I had forgotten all about until I came across the result of my wish today.

The Bed is a fun, banter-y snippet featuring Severus and Harry's (active) love life and Severus' interesting bed. *g*
Go read and leave some love, yes?

And yay for happy surprises. ♥

Day 2

Rec at least three fanworks that you didn’t create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Ahh, recs day.
While I wish I could rec entirely from current fests, alas, I have not been keeping up with them as I should. :(
Still, I can do at least one rec from a current fest, so that's something, right? *g*

Have some recs, old and new:

1. The Continuing Adventures of Severus Snape, Barista Extraordinaire by [ profile] mywitch/[ profile] mywitch and [ profile] toodleoo/[ profile] toodleloo. This fantastic Snermione comic has to be seen to be believed. The story is fun and sexy and the art is spectacular. And it even has my het OTP of Harry/Luna. *g* MyWitch is brilliant at the little details, and Toodleloo is a master drabbler. Go check it out, you won't regret it.

2. Haeligeweille by Anonymous. This is part of [ profile] hoggywartyxmas, an always fabulous fest, chock full of rarepairs. This is the ultimate one, really - Filch/Mrs Norris. And no, it's not bestiality. It's a clever, witty, brilliantly conceived gem of a tale that is now my new head canon for these characters. It tells the story of how Mr Filch ended up where he is, and how one should never assume you know someone's story. Seriously fantastic writing.

3. Going Green by [ profile] emynn. Even though she's since moved on to other fandoms, Emy made a mark in HP. I adore her style and this story personifies it perfectly. It's sweet, funny, alternately gut-punchy and exhilarating. Turns out, jealousy in the wizarding world can manifest in actually turning green, and when Harry realizes Severus has a suitor -- well, you can guess what happens. This story is an old favorite and is well worth revisiting. *g*

Art for Me!

You guys!

I got my Hoggywarty gift and its gorgeous Snarry art!

Run right now and check out An Enchanted Evening, and leave the artist (who is no mystery, really *g*) lots of love because she deserves it.

Well, why are you still hanging about here? Go now!
alisanne: (Default)
You guys, I need to point to a couple of things.

So, my Erised fic posted recently and it's sweet and brilliant and clever and adorable, and did I mention sweet? Well, it features Harry and Draco and a cat and you need to read it right now.
Because Cats

Also, the fabulous [personal profile] gracerene filled my Kinky Kristmas prompt over at [community profile] daily_deviant!
She wrote me some luscious Snarry rimming in Give Me Everything. Definitely NSFW. *g*

Go and leave some love! ♥
alisanne: (Default)
I've been blown away by the offerings at [community profile] hp_goldenage's Salt and Pepper Fest, so time for some recs! TBH, just about everything there is great, but these are the submissions I especially enjoyed. :)


Seeking Crumple-Horned Snorkacks and Blibbering Humdingers by ANON [ profile] overtheroof, Luna Lovegood, G.

This gorgeously executed piece of art perfectly captures Luna's carefree spirit.
The look in her eyes, her hair, her walking stick...*sigh* Just go look, you won't be sorry.


Of Dirigible Plums and Bad Proposals by ANON [ profile] evandar, Ron/Harry, PG-13, 2461 words.

This fic! OMG, it is glorious. Ron and Harry are older and know each other so well, except for one little detail. Ron's inner voice here is SPOT ON, and seeing Harry through his eyes made me fall head over heels for him. UNF.
There are some great lines in this, but one of my faves has to be:

“What I don’t get,” Harry says when Ron finishes, “is why your Mum’s so insistent about you getting married now. I mean –” he pauses as his eyes rake over Ron’s body in a gesture that’s as coldly assessing as it is intimate. He’s been an auror for far too long for the way he looks at people to be entirely reassuring. “You’re not exactly young anymore,” he continues. “So why now?”

Ron sighs – he’s been waiting for that question.

“There’s a curse,” he says.

Yeah. This Harry? He's the bomb. I get it, Ron. I totally get it. Go read, and you'll get it, too.

Thistle Honey by ANON [personal profile] torino10154, Minerva/Severus, PG-13, 1075 words.

If you give this gloriously understated story a chance it will grow on you. It's subtle, with passion thrumming beneath, much like the relationship between these two, I suspect. I legit teared up after reading. The eternal devotion and love depicted are beautiful. <3

Life Has Just Begun by ANON [personal profile] writcraft, Harry/Severus, NC-17, 6500 words.

This lovely story depicting a deep friendship between Harry and Severus in their later years starts out as a perfectly reasonable conversation between close friends, then morphs into delightfully sweet and sexy coming out in which Harry learns being gay is not so bad. Even if he's only admitting it later in life. Go check it out if you enjoy stellar writing.

Find Your Way Back by ANON [ profile] unadulteratedstorycollector, Harry/Draco, NC-17, 26000 words.

Yes, it's long, but set aside some time and get ready for some delicious hurt/comfort, pining, and some really satisfying sex. The premise is fun! Harry and Draco got divorced 30 years prior, and now Harry's getting remarried, only their bond is still there. How do they dissolve it? Why by living together of course. If they're not in love, the bond will spontaneously break. (I give you one guess what happens). The author takes us on an intense ride that had me aching and cheering for them and the ending was brilliant and perfect. Go, read, and enjoy!

If you like any of these (or anything else at the fest) do leave the creators some love. It is always appreciated. <3
alisanne: (Sly invalid argument)
So I was just counting up my points for [personal profile] capitu's Comment_a_Thon, and I realized that I needed two more recs to be able to claim twenty more points for Slytherin!

Well, I can't leave those points just sitting there, can I? Oh no.

So, for the glory of Slytherin, have two more recs. (I would have posted these anyway, but I'm just moving them up a bit). <3

From [ profile] hoggywartyxmas (dudes, I am telling you, fabulous fest is fabulous) you need to go look at A Peaceful Haven, some utterly glorious Minerva art. It's Minerva, surrounded by books and looking contented and happy, and I want to live inside this art. *happy sigh* It's beautiful.

And, from [ profile] sshg_giftfest, this VERY UNSAFE FOR WORK, Severus/Hermione art by the incomparable [personal profile] mywitch, Greetings from Paradise. Let's just say I have spent an inordinate amount of time staring at this art today, and it is...mesmerizing. Mywitch definitely knows her anatomy. Damn. *bites fist* Hermione's *cough* movements are something to behold.

And that's it! 10 recs means 20 more points! <3

Go, Slytherin!

Day 6

Leave feedback for a fanwork. Or multiple fanworks. It can be as simple as I liked this to a detailed list of all the things you loved about the fanwork. The key is to leave some sort of feedback.

If you've already left feedback in the course of a previous challenge, it totally counts. But you're free to leave more feedback.

Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!" If you feel so inclined, leave a link to the fanwork you left feedback for so others can check it out.

Thanks for the nudge, Snowflake mods! *g*
I took this opportunity to catch up a bit on [ profile] hoggywartyxmas submissions.

Specifically, I left feedback on:

1) A Much Calmer Sutra, Severus/Minerva, art, which is a beautifully sweet and sensuous piece with lovely warm colors that radiates calm.

2) The Hogwarts Chronicles, Severus/Hermione, Minerva, 3500 words, PG-13, a clever and witty piece of writing that portrays perfect characterizations and hilarious asides.

3) The Retribution of the Silver Spoon, Lucius/Severus, assorted others, R (for language), 5800 words, which is a fascinating look at Lucius and what he has to do to survive his actions during the war.

All are worth reccing, so I am taking this opportunity to rec them (and the entire fest, really), which is chock full of brilliant pieces.

Day 3

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

This is great timing, because I was preparing a recs post for later anyway!
All of these are from currently posting fests and so the creators are anonymous.


From Owlpost:
Wands Upon a Time, 24000, Harry/Draco, Teen.

I adore stories with clever wandlore and unique magic and this has it in spades. Harry's an Auror on desk duty due to an injury, Draco runs an underground illegal medical clinic. When Harry finds a mysterious broken wand that speaks to him, he tracks it to Draco, and the two embark on a fascinating adventure. Beautifully written, it even features sassy!Pansy, and Lucius' cameo is perfect. LOVED it.

From HoggywartyXmas:
Bibliomancy, 12400 words, Irma Pince/Minerva McGonagall, Irma Pince/Helga Hufflepuff, PG.

Beautifully written story detailing the origin, life, and loves of the Hogwarts librarian. Her creation is one of the most unique pieces of brilliant magic I've read, and her interactions with everyone from Salazar Slytherin to Beedle the Bard are inspired. A gorgeous story everyone needs to read.


From Minifest:
Romantic Sleigh Ride, Harry/Draco, G.

This art is beautiful and almost luminous, as if lit from within. I love the thestral, the background, and the way Harry and Draco are tenderly leaning against each other. Really gorgeous!

Also from Minifest:
Head of Hufflepuff: Pomona Sprout. Pomona, G.

Just the most beautiful image of Pomona, surrounded by her beloved plants. <3
alisanne: (Default)
You guys, I've gotten some lovely presents recently and I need to share!

From [personal profile] sdk I got a sweet and tender Snarry called Tradition. I swear, everything Shelly writes is fabulous! <3

From [personal profile] enchanted_jae I recieved a fun Harry/Draco fic, Holiday Hangover Part 1, and if you know anything about Jae you know it's a fun, fluffy treat.

From [personal profile] alafaye I got Keeping You Warm, a gentle, tender Snarry. *hugs it close*

From [personal profile] titti I got a sizzling story called Christmas Gift. She filled one of my Daily Deviant KK prompts where I asked for James SIrius/Scorpius and rimming. Yeah, you read that right, check it out! ;)

And finally, the ridiculously talented [personal profile] mywitch posted art for me today. This wonderful Harry and Snape is Day 7 of her 25 days of Drawings. It's fabulous to see my OTP content and happy. <3 Also, if you haven't do check out the rest of her drawings in the series, they're fabulous.

Thank you, everyone. You all rock! ♥
alisanne: (Default)
You guys, I have a rec for you!

If you like Snupin (or even if you don't) go and check out The Downward Spiral by [personal profile] xochiquetzl (link is to the memoried list of chapters).
She wrote and posted it daily it over the month of July (with a little spillover into August) and it was my daily delicious fic fix for the month. It's complete (sadly, LOL), although that means I can finally rec it (because, as I'm sure you all know, I'm wary about WsIP, having been burned in the past).

It features a stunningly sexy young Severus, a bit of a sweet and innocent-ish Remus, prolly one of the best Lucius' I've ever read, a wonderful Narcissa, and a sly and fun Abraxas who is absolutely hilarious.
It's set just after Lily's death and outlines what happens when Remus and Severus hook up after her funeral. It's got some BDSM, polyamory, bisexuality (all handled beautifully), as well as just enough angst and sweet romance to give me all the hurt/comfort feels. It's really fabulous, and you should do yourselves a favor and go check it out now. You will not regret it, I promise!

Seriously, GO!


Mar. 20th, 2017 04:26 pm
alisanne: (Default)
I've finally caught up on [ profile] hp_goldenage's Salt and Pepper Fest, so here, have some recs!

Inevitable Harry/Ron, by Anon [ profile] llaeyro, NC-17, ~4K.

Beautifully tender and sweet fic, featuring an omnisexual Ron and a gay just for his BFF Harry.
Their comfort with and care for each other is woven seamlessly throughout, and the sweet hesitancy is lovely. Of course then comes the hot sex, which... yeah, baby.
Even if this isn't your pairing, give it a try, I don't think you'll regret it.

Settle James Sirius/Teddy, by Anon [ profile] mindabbles, NC-17, 9300.

James is a perpetual bachelor, mainly because he can't seem to find the right person. Meanwhile, Teddy is divorced, and they're friends, and James figured they missed their chance, except...maybe not? This is bittersweet and lovely, the cast of characters are beautifully written, and the sex is just gorgeous. Go read now!

Night Changes Harry/Draco, by Anon [ profile] writcraft, NC-17, 10,600 words.

You need to read this gorgeously characterized story if you like this pairing even a little. Draco is snarky and vulnerable, and trying so hard, and Harry is just as broken in his own way, it just takes him a while to figure out what he wants, and it's gloriously poetic and lyrical and bittersweet and amazing. (And that was one run-on sentence, wasn't it? *sigh*) Just go read! *shoos*

Things Grow Finer With Age Harry/Draco, by Anon [ profile] carpemermaid, art, PG.

This art featuring hilarious scenes of Harry and Draco's life together, and Draco's attempts to master Muggle tech is fun and sweet, and the details make the piece. I dare you to look at this and not smile. :)

This is but a small sampling of the offerings there, and there's something for everyone, so chack it out and leave the creator some love, will you? ♥

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.

Hm. This is an unexpectedly tough one. There are lots of tropes and kinks I like.
For example, I adore cross-dressing (especially skirtporn), semi-public sex, desk sex, gloves, glasses...
So, I'm not going to talk about any of that, LOL. I'm going to talk about first times )

Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

OMG, I am so behind on fests, it's crazy.
But I have also been reading frantically, so I shall rec from what I have read/seen. Please realize that this doesn't mean that the other stuff isn't reccable, just that I haven't got to it yet!

From [ profile] hd_erised

Lumos by Anon [ profile] birdsofshore, 42K, NC-17, Harry/Draco.

The dialogue in this fic is stellar, as is the mutual wanking (yes, you read that right). And Harry's inner thoughts are perfect and utterly hysterical. Also, I'm a sucker for original magic, and this story hit that button perfectly. Really lovely tale with gorgeous characterizations and did I mention the dialogue? Also, Draco's trunk hilariously steals the show. *giggles*

Weed or Wildflowers by Anon [ profile] lq_traintracks and [ profile] sdkshelly, 17.5K, NC-17, Harry/Draco.

Another fic where the dialogue makes it. Can you tell I have a thing for snark? *g*
Draco and Harry keep getting set up on dates together, and after a while they start to like it. Not that Draco's about to admit that. The supporting characters are great, the premise fun, and the sex, sizzling.

Rainy Days and Grimoires by Anon [ profile] 8c, art, HarryDraco.

Gorgeous color scheme is gorgeous. Also, the premise is sweet, and there's an absolutely delicious kiss. And books! Also Draco's robes, Harry's hair, Draco's braid. Go look just to see Draco's braid. LOL.

Breakfast is for Eating in by Anon [ profile] anokaba, art (NSFW), Harry/Draco.

Make sure you're alone when you click on this because whoa nelly, it's sizzling. Let's just say Harry's choice of breakfast is...unorthodox. *g* Also, the color scheme (one you get around to noticing that) is wonderfully warm, and then there's the sock. Dudes, that sock is just...*bites fist* Go look.

From [ profile] hoggywartyxmas

An Excellent Choice by Anon [ profile] shadowycat, art, Severus/Minerva, PG-13.

This depicts a lovely, tender, and intimate moment between lovers, although I'm pretty sure Severus is paying less attention to the book and more to Minerva's cleavage. *g* Wonderfully drawn, their hair is great, and the textures are practically touchable. Beautiful work!

Great Balls of Snow by Anon [ profile] sigune, art, Minerva, Severus, assorted others, Gen.

Delightfully charming art and story depicting an annual and ongoing winter competition between Minerva and Severus. If you click on nothing else on this list, see this. It's superb.

Friends, Teachers, Countrymen by Anon [ profile] hiddenhibernian, 3700, Severus, others, R.

This story made me shiver and sigh, sob and laugh. It's a beautiful imagining of Severus' holidays and the gifts he gives his friends, even when they cannot know they have received them. Bittersweet, poignant, and heartbreaking tale.

From [ profile] mini_fest

Warm Christmas Magic by Anon [ profile] shadowycat, art, Minerva, Gen.

Beautiful warm colors and fabulous line work make this piece cosy and warm. I love Minerva's sweater and I can practically smell the hot chocolate. Yum. :)

Dashing Through the Snow by Anon [ profile] akatnamedeaster, art, Sirius and Buckbeak, G.

Everything about this depicts joy and happiness and winter cheer. Especially the looks on their faces as they 'dash'. And I love the sense of movement the artist conveys. Wonderful work! :)

And remember, if you see/read something you like, leave some love, yes?
alisanne: (Default)
More fic has posted for me!
I must have been good this year. ;)

First, the oh so prolific [ profile] enchanted_jae wrote me gifty fic this holiday! Gay, Happy Meetings is sweet Harry/Draco, a part of her Yuletide 'Verse.

Then [ profile] lomonaaeren very generously wrote my OTP, Snarry, in Rebirth of the Fire, a gorgeous, sensual tale about Severus introducing Harry to Yule traditions.

And finally, I got an incredible gift at [ profile] hoggywartyxmas.
A Term of Endearment is a beautiful study of the complex and often irreverent relationship between Severus and Minerva, spanning Severus' joining Hogwarts' staff to the second war, with a dash of my OTP at the end for good measure. It's wonderful and, as far as I'm concerned, it's my new headcanon.
alisanne: (Default)
So I have been crazy busy, but that is no excuse for not mentioning the following lovely things.

First, the incredibly talented [ profile] mywitch drew gorgeous Snarry art for me. Snogging Under the Mistletoe is, as advertised, Snarry kissing. It's dreamy, romantic, and fabulous. Thank you, dear one! <3

In addition, my [ profile] hd_erised gift posted! It's called Candyman, and it's got competition, pining, and the most delicious descriptions of decadent sex desserts I've ever red. Oh, and the sex is yummy, too. ;) Go check it out!

Also, the lovely [ profile] lutienlovemagic has posted their Hungarian translation of my Adventdrabbles13 series. The title is Adventi egypercesek 2013 and the first chapter is Esti mese. So exciting!

And finally, the utterly delightful [ profile] cordeliadelayne wrote me Snarry! Kitchen Disaster is a tender, loving piece of Holiday Snarry. I just love Harry's desire to do something special for Severus, and Severus' reaction is perfect. <3

Thank you all! You rock like rocking things. ♥
alisanne: (Default)
So the [ profile] hptimetravel fest just posted their anonymous masterlist, and in an attempt to make up for being a bad participant (I was traveling during the bulk of the fest, albeit not through time, LOL), I am presenting just a few submissions that I especially enjoyed. Time travel is one of my very favorite HP tropes, so if you like it, too, do go and check out some of the offerings!


Hope By Anon [ profile] hikarievandar, Regulus and Sirius, PG-13, 5800 words.

Ignore the slight incesty overtones, this one is all about setting things right.
Regulus performs a clever bit of magic, giving himself a second chance to fix the error he made in joining the Death Eaters in the first place. But, to make things work, he needs help, and who best to ask but family? Sirius' reaction is perfect, as is the sense of hope this story leaves you with.

Happily Ever After By Anon [ profile] kittyaugust, Ginny/Luna, Ginny/Harry, Harry/Draco, T, 6500

This is the story of how Ginny decides to follow her heart and not do what's expected. And, as always in good fic featuring her, Luna is luminous and mesmerizing. I can't blame Ginny for falling for her! The magic is clever and fun, and Hermione is adorable and funny. Also, Draco has a great cameo.


Halfway By Anon [ profile] savagesnakes, G, Sirius, James, Remus, Teddy, Harry.

Absolutely beautifully executed panel with a stunning use of selective color depicting an intense little time traveling excerpt that raises a lot of questions even as it answers some others. And Teddy just breaks my heart.

If you spot something you enjoy, do leave the creator some love, yes?
alisanne: (Default)
I managed to catch up on some reading yesterday (apparently my muse decided it was her day off :P) and thought I'd share a few things.
All of these are from [ profile] hprarefest's ongoing fest.
There's a ton of variety over there, BTW, so if you like rarepairs at all, do go and check it out.
Here's what I especially enjoyed.

An Inspection Most Thorough by Anon [ profile] cryptaknight, R, Ron/Pansy

Stuck-up pure-blood princess Pansy is, well, stuck with Auror Ron having to search her house for Dark artifacts. Awkward doesn't even begin to cover it, and yet they make the best of it. This Pansy is sassy and fun, this Ron is grown up and sexy. They remain IC and yet make things work, no mean feat! Great fic!

all manor of things by Anon [ profile] segundite, PG-13, James Sirius/Teddy

This features a fun, unique plot, a great choice of career for James (and Teddy, LOL), all the clever banter you could wish for, fun cameo appearances from the supporting cast, and lots of intrigue and excitement. Just all around fabulous writing.

The Weasley Reception by Anon [ profile] rillalicious, R, Charlie/Pansy

This Pansy is hilarious, and is having a distinctly bad work day. Until she meets a delicious, redheaded stranger, and then her day turns very enjoyable indeed. Alas, there are complications, made more hilarious by the fact that Pansy has no idea who she's picked up. The ending is sweet, and the chemistry between the two, sizzling.

les cousins dangereux by Anon [ profile] darkhairedgirl, PG-15, Albus Severus/Dominique

Talk about a rare pair! It's not explicit, but the longing is palpable and heartbreaking, and the way the scenes are cut together very effective. There is a gorgeous inevitability to this story that makes it difficult to read, yet difficult to look away from. I also adore the family relationships depicted. The Weasleys are an enormous family, and all those complicated relationships are beautifully handled.

Do go check out the fest, and if you enjoy something, don't hesitate to leave some love. <3
alisanne: (Default)
OMG, you guys!
So I posted a Snarry drabble earlier (The Friendly Skies on LJ/IJ/DW) and the fabulous [ profile] mywitch drew art to go with it!
Run now and check out her delicious Scribble before coffee. It's PERFECT, although NSFW, and be sure to check out the grins on our favorite couple's faces. *g* They kinda match my beaming face at the moment, truth be told. ;)

Anyway, go and leave her all sorts of love, K?
alisanne: (Glee)
You guys!
So my [ profile] daily_deviant Banging Birthday gift just posted and it's glorious!

Love You A Long Time is 6300 words of Snarry deliciousness that everyone needs to read now now now.

It's heart clenching at first, Severus and Harry have broken up, but that soon gets fixed, and then it's all sexy, glorious feels and rimming and door sex and Severus is perfect and it's got all the things I love about Snarry. *heart eyes*

Seriously, this story is beyond fabulous!
Go now and read my fic and leave lots of love because the MA [ profile] writcraft totally deserves it. ♥
alisanne: (Default)
...but today is not that day. :P
You guys! The happy things just keep coming. ;)

[ profile] llaeyro wrote me fic! A Little Less Conversation, A Little More Action, Please is a delightful ficlet featuring a clever Harry and a somewhat unsure but willing to be convinced Severus. *g* Go read now and leave her some love!
