( A bushel of recs )
In other news, hd_fanart is claiming tomorrow for their fest! I'm excited to see if any of my prompts get claimed. The perusal post is here. I have been really, utterly spoilt for art this year but it just makes me crave more, I'm afraid, so I will be staking out the list of prompts and hoping to see that 'claimed' sign next to one or more of mine.... *fingers crossed*
In the interests of clearing the boards before I start on hp_kinkfest, and *cough* possibly to score a few points at writ's Comment-a-thon as well, here is my second batch of recs from the fest. There were actually others that I could have recced; I have just picked my top top favourites.
( 4 recs for Harry/Draco, and 1 for Sherlock RPS crossover O_o )
Word count: ~2100
Characters: A lucky dip of fandom favourites
Summary: They met in the dingy back room of a shady-looking pub in Knockturn Alley: a Frost Giant, a consulting detective, an Academy Award-winning actor... and a pointy git.
Warnings: Crossover. Unbetaed. One of those ideas you have at 4 am, then wake up and say 'naaaah.' Except I went ahead and wrote it.
A/N: For the delicious who_la_hoop, on her birthday. I was going to say that this is probably the most ridiculous thing I have ever written, but, who am I kidding? This is, without question, the most ridiculous thing I have ever written, inspired by many a conversation with Ms Hoop herself. So, basically, yeah, blame her. :D
( Clone Wars )
~~ Further to the discussions about concrit etc etc (don't worry, I have absolutely zero desire to stir it all up again) I need to tell you I made some changes to my rec post for megyal's gorgeous fic Truffles, Noble Lord of the Sky, and added an email that megyal sent me and asked to have included. It's here: http://birdsofshore.livejournal.com/
~~ Furthermore, megyal, who is spoiling us this month, has written a gem of a story for my choice of trope: "forced bed sharing." O, forced bedsharing, how do I love thee? This fic is full of her usual poetry and magic, and at under 2k, it's a delicious treat. I read it twice and some of the lines made me stop and read them again and again because they are just so rich and fine.

I can't wait! I love the colours and the simple but instantly recognisable motifs, with all the associations they give you of that character. So clever. I have not decided where to put it yet, maybe the bathroom, or the hall, so I can think about Sherlock every time I walk past. I was going to ask for it for my birthday in a couple of months, but now with free shipping I have decided it would really be impolite not to buy it straight away ;-)
Well, this week LJ was a sod, so I had to go and play with my bit on the side, tumblr, instead, and read and look at lots of things on there. This means that this post is maybe a bit more about Sherlock than HP. I also had so much fun catching up on watching Graham Norton, with both Benedict Cumberbatch, and Daniel Radcliffe. I have not watched so much TV for months.

I have got some sensible recs, for H/D, too, but this post is long enough, plus as usual the fonts and spacings on LJ are driving me insane, so I'll do them later.
