I posted a fic at [livejournal.com profile] hp_kinkfest.

Title: Hand in Glove
Author: [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] shiftylinguini
Kink Showcased: Glove kink
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~9k
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: His fingers are cool and steady against my skin and I imagine I can smell the scent of leather on them already, expensive, addictive... but it's not enough. He traces the line of my jaw, tilts my chin up so that I'm looking into his eyes. “Should I put the gloves on?” He sounds playful, as if this is just a game between us. A bit of fun.

“Yes.” My voice is always hoarser than I expect. I never remember quite how deep the knife-twist of desire bites into me.

Warnings: Glove kink. Hand kink. Sex in risky places. Antagonism. Some hints of D/s dynamics.
A/N: Massive thanks to the patient and brilliant dicta_contrion for beta services.

I really enjoyed getting stuck into this kink. I could sort of see the appeal of gloves, although it wasn't something that I'd ever thought about an awful lot... however NOW... O__O I'm all about gloves. I really enjoy when I can think myself into the headspace of someone with a fetish and try to get what it is all about.

When I was several thousand words into writing this fic I posted on LJ saying I was having some problems with Harry 1st person. I hoped people would have some tips for me. Ha! Ha! Instead, the consensus was, DON'T DO IT.

The problem was that I was already mightily invested in the story, and when I tried to rephrase into 3rd person I realised that it would need a total rewrite if I was going to change POV. So despite feeling really pigheaded for ignoring the advice, I persevered with 1st person. I know that it wasn't a total success, but I do feel parts of it worked well. I'm not sure if I'd attempt it again or not. I can totally see why people's advice was to steer clear, but I enjoyed trying, anyway. I'm still intrigued by what makes Harry sound like Harry, so I may well have another go one day.

The best thing for me about writing this was that there was one scene that I couldn't get out of my head. It's so simple, and funny really, considering all of the filthy goings on - but it's the part where Malfoy tells Harry to kiss the glove. It had such resonance for me and I could see it really clearly in my mind. So, I plucked up the cheek to ask [livejournal.com profile] shiftylinguini if she fancied having a go at drawing something for the fic. And SHE SAID YES. ♥ My heart! That was amazing enough, but then after she'd read it, she produced something completely asdfghjksdfghjklfghjklasdfghjkl. I'm so so thrilled with it. Even if you don't fancy the story, you could go and leave some love for the art.

However, before linguini's incredible art existed, I did a little bit of internet research *cough* and found what I like to call Mr Glove!Dom. He was kind of inspiring to me while I was writing the fic and I thought it would be nice to share him with you:



*STARES*  ♥

Now my only problem is that I keep dreaming about buying pair of really fucking nice leather gloves. I've made a shortlist of the ones I want, and I can't afford any of them. *sigh* The pitfalls of fanfiction.
