Gosh, what a very exciting day for art and fic. I woke up late and LJ was just FULL of gorgeous stuff and I have only just had time to finish looking and commenting properly on it.

First, I was excited to see a fab new artist posting absolutely charming sketches. Book Buddies by [ profile] 8c, here or here. I love their poses, Draco's pointy elegance, and the gorgeous kiss. I'm so happy with the way you can tell Harry's really into it even though his face is obscured.

Then my prompt posted at [ profile] hp_kinkfest, and, oh boy, I got art AND fic. Out the Box, Out of Line (art, NSFW, mild bondage) and fic, by the multi-talented [ profile] shine_alive. My prompt was for either Harry or Draco to take the other prisoner, and for it to become obvious that the captor finds it arousing to be tied up. I'm thrilled with what the author has done with it. It's a deliciously hot little scene, and to have the story illustrated too is the icing on the cake.

Finally, I am almost speechless at this incredible Starfighter / HD crossover art that my lovely new friend [ profile] catplusfox has drawn for me. I just... I'm not worthy. OMG! Some days Starfighter obsesses me almost as much as H/D, and to have them both smooshed together like this, with EYE-FUCKING, and POINTINESS, and SHINY UNIFORMS is just beyond gorgeous. It's reasonably SFW (the art, that is, not Starfighter!!) and WHOLLY FABULOUS. You definitely don't need to read Starfighter to enjoy its glory. Here it is: Starpotter.

The above people are all quite new to posting H/D art and fic (some brand new) and I really hope people will go and love on them a lot. I always think we are lucky to have some amazing people in H/D, but artists in particular seem to move on to other things. When we find good ones, I want to cherish and adore them as if they were my firstborn children. :DDD

I was also going to post pictures of me and some friends at a Doctor Who costume party, but I'm running out of time, so I will do that later.

Oh, btw, if anyone was wondering, in between squeeing and dressing up, I did also make a start on my Harry!bang and I'm so happy to be writing again. It's only at 3.5k at the moment, but I hope to improve on that today (and [ profile] firethesound has promised me a filthy treat when I get to 4.5k, which is totally the best kind of motivation ♥ ). Thank you very much to all those who have listened to me whinging about it, because your support is hugely appreciated. ♥ ♥ ♥

Yayyyy!!! Congrats on starting your Harrybang!!! Well done! And getting a reward from Firethesound is certainly worth it! You can do it! :D

I agree with what you said about these artists! These are absolutely gorgeous! ♥

And your fic was lovely too! :D

ETA: Now that I think of it, I have to have a talk with Firethesound, because I don't get to have treats when I write!!! :P

I'm really happy for you. It's not easy to write something in the long run and even if I've already written a long story, it was totally different because I had no idea what I was doing or getting myself into, and I was posting every week so once a chapter was done, it was done and I couldn't get back to it.

But that's a whole new challenge, and I like that it pushes us in a way! :D

I'm very excited to read what you'll come up with! :D

Poor Fire! :P I won't bother her, I'm so grateful that she's willing to take a look at my silly little fics already! :P

Funny you should say that, because someone was telling me the other day that there were two kinds of writers: quilters and scarf-knitters. Apparently, you're a quilter, which makes it difficult to post a WIP indeed!
I'm basically a scarf-knitter, writing linearly (?) but this is changing. For my Tropes fic, I had some scenes that were not necessarily written in the right order.

And that's why Harrybang is a huge challenge, because I'm afraid of having to go back and redo the start on such a long story! :P It's not that I'm lazy, it's rather that I'm afraid I will find it's crap and will have to rewrite half of it! But that's the fun of writing a really long story I guess! :D

Well, in this case, you have to write those missing 1k!!!!! :P (no pressure, lol).

You lucky thing you. ^^ You got art!!

I'm with you there, you know. I LOVE art. I loved [ profile] 8c's drawing. We have to plot and KEEP them here forever. Of course, sounding creepy like that might not be the best way to go about it. ^^

I did! I went there before you and I was about to poke you about them. XD

You get a frebbie today for squeeing at your lovely art. :D Not all day though, I want a count before you get to bed or tomorrow morning. ;)

Can I just thank you now? Because I've just seen this, and then there was this, and I think my life is pretty much forfeit by now xD All that biting and cockiness and holding people down, I could never walk away from that...

Okay I am dying with the crossover art. I just got into Starfighter like three days ago and I needed this in my life. Thank you for linking it and inspiring it and AH. Also I saw that book buddies sketch yesterday and it totally gave me that H/D love spark. SO GLAD all these new and talented people are coming to H/D!

Congrats on Harrybang! Wonderful news! It always feels so good to write again after you haven't for awhile!

So, [ profile] firethesound is making you write 4.5k and I'm just going to show you some fic for free? LOL! I clearly don't know how to work it. ;-P

Ohhhhh the book one!!! GOD!

I refuse to open the Starfighter one. I can't afford a new obsession. ;-)

You don't have to start reading Starfighter, just because you look at the art. It's so pretty, you'd love it... you've never seen such glorious eye-fucking. *wheedles* *enables* ;-))

Oh for Pete's...

Yes, it's bloody gorgeous. Happy? ;-D :-D

And I'm glad we have now come to an arrangement, before you give me fic! I need seriously taking in hand here! Don't let me off without writing the words, OK?

You got it! \o/
