Holiday fest season is coming and I need to organize my thoughts, plan out what I'm doing, etc.
Here's what I'm thinking:
Thinky thoughts about upcoming holiday fests )
Therefore, here's my list of fall and holiday fests in which I will likely will participate (assuming they are running this year).
What will I be doing in November/December? )
So really, December will still be crazy. Maybe everything worked out for the best in the end?
Yeah, I'm going with that. :P

As many of you know, I've been participating in [ 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!

Happy Monday, all.
Dreary day here, I hope it's nicer where you are. <3

Ali's List of Fics: June 5 - June 11 )
And here are my upcoming projects:
Ali’s To-Do/WsIP List )
In addition, I'm contemplating doing something for [ profile] hp_crossgenfest (need to scour the prompts), [ profile] hd_cliche (ditto), and I'm in the mood to write some rarepairs, so does anyone know if [ profile] rarepair_shorts still runs that random numbers game fest?
alisanne: (Default)
As I'm sure some of you noticed, I did [community profile] hp_may_madness again this year, and I managed to write something for every prompt. I'm not claiming these were masterpieces, but they were responses. *g*
[personal profile] torino10154 tells me we we've both managed to pwn this challenge the past 4 years, since 2014. Heh. Hopefully I'll manage it for a year 5. ;)

Here's the final list of fics I wrote:
Fic List: )
Also, as I did last year, I've compiled some "stats", which may amuse. *g*
Wacky stats under the cut )
Thanks again to the mods for throwing this fest once more. It was fabulous! ♥

The [ profile] hp_darkarts Horror Fest Master List has been posted, which means I can now claim my submission.

I wrote Heart and Soul, a relatively short story featuring Ron/Gabrielle and a Veela mating gone terribly wrong. I'm not sure now horrible it was, but I tried for creepy. I plan to repost soon, so if you're in the mood for something different, give it a whirl and let me know what you think. If it's any consolation, no one dies. ;)

Also, this was my first time participating and it was definitely different (and kinda fun). I may even try it again next year. Thank you [personal profile] writcraft for being so lovely and encouraging.

Weekly fic wrap up time.

Ali's List of Fics: January 30 - February 5 )

Ali’s To-Do/WsIP List )

Upcoming fests I'm definitely doing are:
[community profile] snape_potter's Snarry a Thon and the [ profile] hp_getlucky fest.

Fests I'm considering are:
[ profile] hprarefest
[ profile] hp_bunintheoven
[ profile] hp_3somes
and, believe it or not, [ profile] hp_darkarts's Horror Fest (I know!) I guess I'm curious to know if I can go dark enough for this fest. *ponders*

Any fests you guys are considering?

Another of the fests I participated in, [ profile] hoggywartyxmas, has posted their reveals, and so I can now admit to the story I wrote for them, and once again point to my FABULOUS gift.

I wrote Hiring Defence Against the Dark Arts Teachers and Other Unforgivable Acts for the incredible [ profile] sigune, and I was bowled over by the wonderful reception it got. ♥

In addition, the amazing [ profile] gingertart50 wrote a fabulous fic for me. A Term of Endearment It's...awesome, and I have already recced it, so if you haven't yet read it you have no excuse. The whole thing is wonderful and it even ends with Snarry! <3

I'll be reposting my fic in a few, but before that I wanted to talk about the fest. Because I have ~thoughts.

I've been participating in fests for years, )

I know I've been spamming my Flist lately, but I've had some inspiration for September ficlets (yes I know it's October now), hence the fic spam.
And, in case you thought that was it, there's more coming later. :P

ANYway, this post is more to point to a couple of upcoming events.

1: Tonight is the always hilarious and fun [ profile] firewhiskeyfic fest. You know, where you get drunk and write fic with some equally drunk people? It's a hoot, let me tell you!
Sadly, I have to join late since I'm singing in a concert with my choir this evening. But once that's over I should be there, drink in hand, ready to commit drunk!fic. :)

2: Signups are now open for [ profile] hp_halloween (they are on IJ and DW, too, I believe). This is the most low-pressure fest ever. Just sign up and write 200 words for a Halloween theme. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. :) Come join us!

So I've finally had some time to do a bit of a wrap up on this year's [ profile] hp_may_madness', er, madness. *g*
The Masterlist of participants is here if interested, and they had some interesting statistics. The mods, as always, did a fabulous job! ♥

Anyway, this year, I did my own stats because why not? Read at your own risk. ;)

First, here is the list of fics I did:
Rarepairs ahoy! )
And now for the fun part!
Here be silly stats )

Anyway, this year's fest was a ton of fun, if a little stressful. Typically I'm nervous the first 2 weeks and then after that I'm fine, figuring the rest is downhill. But there's always that little thrill as I wait for the pairings/prompts to appear where I think "Can I do it? Or is this the time when I'll fail to think of something to write?" *g*

This fest, it keeps me on my toes. :)

I just got my [community profile] intoabar/[ profile] intoabar assignment, and it's who I was dreading.
Draco Malfoy walks into a bar and meets...Ichabod Crane from Sleepy Hollow. URGH!

Don't get me wrong, I love the character, and my muse is already coming up with plausible scenarios, but Ichabod's turn of phrase is...particular. I'm worried what I write won't sound like him.
[ profile] draycevixen, any suggestions?

I am going to have to study him for a while, I think. *sigh*
Still, it could be worse I suppose. :P
alisanne: (Default)
The [ profile] hp_goldenage Salt and Pepper Fest reveals are up, which means I can claim the fic I wrote.
It's an unusual one by my standards since it's gen and focuses on a character I don't often spotlight, Minerva McGonagall.

If interested, you can read it at the fest, In Celebration of New Friendships, although I will be reposting it in my journals soon.

And now for some writing babble. ;)
tl;dl discussion about gen fic in general and my fic in particular )

Anyway, this was all to say that I had fun in this fest, enjoyed a lot of the submissions (see my rec posts here and here) and I hope to participate again sometime. :)
alisanne: (Default)
So as many of you may have noticed, my muse is back with a vengeance and I have been writing, yay!
I am in the mood to do a prompt table for my dear OTP, Snarry, but I can't seem to locate any ready made ones. Anyone know where I can find one?

I totally forgot about [ profile] 100quills and [ profile] 100_prompts. Those are perfect! Just what I need. Thank you, [personal profile] torino10154 and [personal profile] lilyseyes!

As many of you know, 2015 was a weird year for everything writing because of RL ~stuff that shan't be mentioned here. Needless to say my word count definitely suffered as a result, In fact, I haven't written much of anything since the summer really, so I suspect my count will be half what it was last year. Anyway, I guess we'll see in a bit.
Here we go! As usual, I'm only linking stories over 1K.

What I wrote in 2015 )
And that was it.
tl:dr: my word total is: drum roll )

As for what this year holds...who knows?
I have no resolutions per se, just to try to get back to the way I was before the life changing events of the summer of 2015. Fingers crossed that I can. :)
And I wish for all of us a prosperous, joy-filled new year. ♥

So I seem to be lacking inspiration today. I think it's because work is being extra annoying, which always happens right before I go on vacation (YAY MISTICON!).
Anyway, I only bring this up because I need your help, Flist.

I wanted to make this canon week in my [ profile] hp_may_madness ficlets, but of course today's kink is threesome/moresome. :P So, which characters do you think could logically be in a threesome in canon? Yes, I know this will be all speculation (pretty sure JKR will never admit to a canon 3some in Pottermore), but maybe it'll spark some ideas for me. ;)

Hello, H/D lovers. :)

So I've been pondering doing the [ profile] hd_collab fest, but I need someone with whom to collaborate. Since my OTP is Snarry, I cannot go to any of my usual friends for help, so this is a general call to anyone who writes/draws Harry and Draco. Would you like to collaborate for this fest? Signups close Monday, so we need to act relatively quickly.
There is one caveat. I have some RL stuff that will make it hard for me to do much until early April, but the fest fics are a 2K minimum and it's due in June, so I still think it's doable.
Any takers?
Comments are screened.

Pretty please? *bats eyelashes*

Sorted! Thanks! ♥

All right, almighty Flist. Here is my dilemma.

I have to write a story for next month's [ profile] daily_deviant.
Without going into details, the theme is Romance Tropes, and there are a lot to choose from.
I would like to write something...different, so what I need from you are Harry Potter rarepairs. Preferably characters/pairings I have not written before (which, honestly, I think will be hard to find since I feel like I've written just about everyone once, but hey, I could be wrong).

Anyway, this isn't me asking you to stump me, necessarily, I just need some unusual/rare character ideas for this. Once I pick the pair/threesome/whatever then I think the rest will fall into place.

The responses to this post are screened to protect the innocent keep things a surprise, and, as an added incentive, if I pick your pairing, I'll even write you a drabble/ficlet later as a thank you. :)

Deal? Great. Go!

So here's my response to that WsIP meme that everyone's doing.

When you see this, share 3 lines paragraphs (or more ;)) from each of 3 WIPs.

I honestly don't know if I'll ever finish these. *shrugs*

Peter Pettigrew fic I planned to write as a follow up to my 2013 Kinky Kristmas. Of course, because it's for DD, there would be sex )
Originally intended as my May 2014 Daily Deviant fic, this one just never seemed to fly. Maybe I just can't see Oliver/Gabrielle, although honestly, why not? )
A fic I planned to write for Shiv5468 in prolly 2012, but just never could finish. Maybe this year for her birthday )

Believe it or not, those are just the first 3 things in my WsIP file. *sigh* That file has over 12K words. *rolls eyes at self*

Thanks to [personal profile] torino10154 who poked me to let me know that I won a thing! *g*
Well...two things?

Thank you to whoever nominated me! This was a lovely surprise. ♥

Happy Saturday, everyone!
As it's now solidly into the new year, I've had a chance to tally up my numbers. JSYK, I have no idea how this will turn out as compared to last year, so this will be a surprise to you and me. ;)

As always, I won't be including fics that are in fests that have not yet posted their reveals, and for the most part I've listed stories over 1000 words, with just 3 exceptions. I also haven't included my Snarry Swap fic because I haven't reposted it yet (expect that soon, though *g*).

Right, so here we go!
Here's what I wrote in 2014 )
Right, so that was my long-winded way of getting to the final number.
My word total for the year was drum roll )

As for fandom resolutions, here's my 2015 manifesto, thanks to Tumblr. *g*

Be well, all!

I've a quick favour to ask of anyone on my Flist who's familiar with Firefly.

I have written a Harry Potter/Firefly crossover for [community profile] intoabar and since neither of my beta readers are familiar with Firefly canon, does anyone have time to look over about 3100 words just to check to see if the Firefly character dialogue sounds right?

I am hoping to post it tomorrow. *gives Flist puppy eyes*
