Claiming my [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair fic. \o/

and OH GOSH! I forgot when I started writing this that it is my FIVE HUNDREDTH POST on LJ! I was trying to think of something special to mark the occasion, but instead, here is more smutty nonsense from me (probably quite fitting in a way...). Thank you all VERY MUCH INDEED for putting up with me on here and making it a fun, creative, supportive, surprising, sometimes bizarre and frequently joyful place to be. ♥



But, back to fan_fair: I wrote Here Be Dragons, for [livejournal.com profile] writcraft's brilliant prompt. I then also got [livejournal.com profile] writcraft to beta it, which I know is a little unorthodox *cough* :D Many thanks to her for the great inspiration and then some very patient betaing. Thank you to dear [livejournal.com profile] lq_traintracks for much support and advice. Thanks also to lovely [livejournal.com profile] shiftylinguini for suggesting Draco might have a tiny pet dragon. Ethel is all for you, my dear! ♥

Last but not least, thank you to everyone who was able to read and comment. I'd like to give you all a grateful hug!

Title: Here Be Dragons
Author: [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore
Animal: Dragon
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/OMCs, brief mention of past Harry/OMC
Warnings/Content Notes: Light BDSM, light D/s themes, Auror!Harry, Suspect!Draco, mild kinkiness, some affectionate suggestion that Ron might not be the hardest working Auror ever, dragons doing what comes naturally, and lots of UST. Also, yes, this *is* basically a blatant excuse for 22,000 words of Draco in leather.
Summary: Harry doesn’t want to waste his time investigating illegal dragonhide trading, whether it involves a fetish club in Knockturn Alley or visiting a remote island in Wales. Why the bloody hell does Malfoy always have to be up to something?
Word Count: ~22k

A few extra notes on the fic (me waffling, really):

- Ethelinda means 'noble snake'. I make no comment about whether she deserves that title based on her behaviour, but it amuses me to think of Draco optimistically naming her that when she was a hatchling.
- The fantasy name generator was a great help to me for the other dragons' names.
- I don't know if anyone spotted my deeply hilarious, to me anyway Cursed Child reference. I would like to use this particular bit of CC canon in every fic I write from now on, but I guess it would out me pretty fast. :D
- I feel fairly certain I have pinched the idea of a Wizarding magazine called Alohomora! from another writer's fic, but I cannot remember where. If it was yours, please let me know!

Title: Rapture
Author: [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore
Pairing:  Draco / Albus Severus / Scorpius
Word count: ~15k
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: ahaha *nervous laugh*. Threesomes, jealousy, pining, powerplay, orgasm denial, Malfoys being Malfoys, Draco being an utter dick, blow jobs, wanking, smutty smut, kind of incesty. Really kind of incesty.
Summary: Al is turning twenty, and Scorpius is determined to give him a birthday that they’ll all remember. Sequel to Euphoria.
A/N: Well, this is sort of complicated. This is a late birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] gracerene. So sorry, grace, I started writing this absolutely ages ago, intending to give it to you for your birthday. Unfortunately life and other writing commitments got in the way. *hangs head* Anyway, here I am posting it on Draco’s birthday. So it’s a present for our beloved Mr Malfoy, as well. But the story itself is about Albus’ birthday. Confused yet?

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] gracerene, for being such a lovely part of fandom - you’re a super writer, commenter, reader, mod, and fandom cheerleader. I don’t know how you manage it all! ♥ Please forgive the lateness of this gift. I loved revisiting these three kinky bastards and very much hope that you enjoy what they get up to here.

A massive thank you to [livejournal.com profile] lq_traintracks and [livejournal.com profile] who_la_hoop for betaing this for me.
Rapture, part 1 )

The first round of [livejournal.com profile] wand_in_a_knot is over and I thoroughly recommend having a look if you have not been following the fest. There are so many different pairings and genres there and the standard of what I've read has been brilliant. I'm just reading the (gorgeous) final entry which is an amazing 8000 words!

I took the opportunity to polish my entry a little bit more and post it over at AO3. If anyone would like to take a look, it is here:

Title: Fit
Creator: birdsofshore
Pairing /Character: Draco / Albus Severus
Summary: Draco needs a new suit. Albus is keen to assist in any way possible.
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~4k
Warnings: Age disparity. Unbetaed.

I'd also like to rec Vaysh's entry, which left me breathless and stunned:

Title: Out in the Octagon
Creator: vaysh
Pairing /Character: Draco Malfoy/Gregory Goyle, Draco Malfoy/Astoria Malfoy née Greengrass
Prompt: "This is absolutely the last time."
Summary: Draco Malfoy is here for the magic that is Gregory Goyle.
Rating: R
Word count: 1260
Warnings: closeted gay character, MMA cage fighting, violence, mentions of arranged marriage

This fic was sheer magic.  Sensual, violent, obsessive, poetic - I was enthralled by this pairing and the addictive intensity of how Draco sees Goyle.

I got tagged at [livejournal.com profile] wand_in_a_knot and wrote Draco/Albus Severus for the lovely prompt of voyeur.

Title: Fit
Creator: birdsofshore
Pairing /Character: Draco / Albus Severus
Summary: Draco needs a new suit. Albus is keen to assist in any way possible.
Rating: NC-17
Word count/art medium/podfic length: ~4k
Warnings/Content: Age disparity. Unbetaed and written in haste. Clothing kink. Suit kink. Shameless eroticisation of one Draco Malfoy. Unwilling arousal. Wanking. Blow job. Basically your usual self-indulgent Birds PWP. :D

I was terribly excited to be involved in the challenge, and luckily could carve out a good chunk of time to write on the day I got tagged. But I found it awfully difficult in the end. I was too ambitious with my idea, and also, it took me a long time to get going. I think I wrote 500 words in the first two hours. I had tons of ideas for the story and also got sidetracked by ~research *cough*. There is a LOT of research to do on suits, waistcoats, tailoring and specifically, how men look wearing sharp suits. DAMN YOU, INTERNET.

I wrote steadily through the evening, but ended up panicking my arse off with an hour to go, and found that part completely paralysing. I like to spend a lot of time on a fic, doing things like picturing how something looks, or choosing just the right word, and I found that the pressure of time meant THERE WERE NO WORDS. It got kind of scary at the end. I wrote the sex scene in about twenty minutes, and it really shows :((

I also found it incredibly hard not to be able to go in and edit the next day! I always say I hate editing, but it turns out, I actually love it. I woke up the next day still feeling very immersed in the world of the fic and with loads of ideas for how to improve it. Of course, it's not in the spirit of the challenge to carry on writing your piece after the 24 hours are up, so I have left it as is, but it feels a bit like being out in public with greasy hair and ketchup on my shirt. I may rewrite when the fest is finished, I'm not sure.

Meanwhile if you decide to try my story, I hope you enjoy what there I came up with! It was fascinating to participate in this challenge and there are some fabulous pieces over at the comm and plenty more to come. Please have a look at [livejournal.com profile] wand_in_a_knot if you're not following the fest already. Thank you to the amazing mods for organising this for the HP fandom and for putting up with my dorkish behaviour. ♥
