I know some of us are feeling a little bit angsty about the Cursed Child publicity revving up this week. I found this art the perfect antidote to my 19 years later blues:

Happily Ever After by anon, at [ profile] harrydracompreg. I know not all of my flist are into mpreg, but this just shows a gorgeous (and strangely familiar ;)) family scene, nothing to do with pregnancy or birth. It's made me beam and remember how fandom can transform anything, even the bloody Epilogue, into something amazing. H/D, SFW.

Another thing I'd like to say is PLEASE can everyone dream up some beautiful Dracos for us all to enjoy at Draco's party (STARTING IN TWO DAYS at [ profile] dracomalfoy) so I can think about that, and not whatever horror (I'm expecting bald/ ugly Draco, at the very least) awaits us at Cursed Child.

Draco's party starts THIS THURSDAY! I can't wait! And the best bit is that [ profile] capitu is back in time to run it with me \o/ \o/ \o/

Please go and see what we've got planned at [ profile] dracomalfoy, grab one of our gorgeous banners (such beautiful art, I could hardly pick one) and get your Draco-centric prompts ready.... I have SO many ideas.

I got tagged. Possibly a few times? LJ is not pinging me! I feel behind with everything - I haven't answered all of my comments from DTH yet, and I'm behind on stuff, and I've missed important posts, and I'm praying like mad not to get tagged on [ profile] wand_in_a_knot until the weekend.... I'm so tired and rather overwrought and I should be sleeping, but here I am, meming.

IT'S JUST THAT GOOD. I always say I don't care who takes it up the arse. But OMG I care SO MUCH about a Toppy, Dommy Draco. And the [ profile] dracotops_harry fest always delivers.


The art and fic from the first day have just about slayed me. SERIOUSLY. Have you SEEN them? I think the rest of the fest will finish me off. There's fic and art coming from some of my favourite people. And two of my prompts got claimed and whoever is writing them, I love you already.

That first fic just has me wanting to follow the writer around forever with a soppy look on my face. I NEED AN INTERVENTION HERE.

Meanwhile, have some recs:

2 from DTH and 2 general H/D )

I feel like I've been quiet lately; I've not been in the best state of mind and have been feeling a bit low in mood and confidence at times, but I'm trying to be around more. I'd love to hear if you've enjoyed any of these, or what you've been reading/writing, or what you're excited about, or ANYTHING.
birdsofshore: (curlew)
OH MY. There are some completely amazing prompts over at [ profile] dracotops_harry.  I currently have two piles: ones I think I could pick up and write something quick and smutty for, and ones I want to read the bejesus out of.

Prompts, prompts, prompts )

I'm so totally excited about this. \o/ Officially unveiling our very own shiny new com in honour of our beloved pointy git.

I-- I don't know what this is. How-- I-- ? There used to be words, and sentences, and things, and now there's just THIS ART.

It's the hand. Harry's hand, and Draco's wand, and OMG THE TROUSERS, but the HAND, NGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH, I just-- OH GOD WHYYYY, I USED TO HAVE A LIFE AND NOW THIS.

I was good and resisted posting it here full size so that you can all go to tumblr and worship the artist in person. But really I want to wallpaper my house with it. Or just my retinas. I could have it surgically implanted on my retinas, yes?

It has been quite a while since anything got me right in the feels like this, like I'm just FIZZING with H/D and my entire body is just a ball of SLASHY FANGIRL ECSTASY, and it just won't stop.

Draco's arse. It's some form of Dark magic. But the hand, though. *whimper*

Looooong wafflings on the subject of Draco's left forearm )
I'd be interested to hear thoughts about any of this. Especially as I am meant to be cleaning and tidying. Please save me from that extremely dull fate and come and hypothesise with me instead.

[ profile] capitu is hosting a wonderful event at her LJ to celebrate Draco's 34th birthday.

I realised I missed a fic I wanted to rec at [ profile] dracotops_harry! It's the fest that keeps on giving ;-)
Transformation )

And, I was a bit tired to do much reading last night, so I spent a happy evening browsing on deviantart. I found some very nice Dracos that I mostly hadn't seen before:

7 Dracos, all ratings )

Do let me know if you liked the art, or if you've read the fic?

Gosh, Tom Felton is really SUPER-ADORABLE in my book. I think a lot of it is down to how much he genuinely loves and respects Draco, and you can see he still really gets a kick from connecting to fans and reminiscing about the films. This is a 30 minute interview he did at the Vancouver Fan Expo recently, and there are some corking moments including:

Highlights and the video )

I am SO INTO writing my [ profile] hd_fan_fair fic now that I am an unkempt mess, growling at anything that tries to prevent me from writing all day and night, such as meals, personal hygiene and my children. Last night I was trying to write something super romantic and UST-ish, and I suddenly got hit by such a MASSIVE WHOOSH of Drarry feels, that it nearly knocked me over.

Then this morning I woke up and checked LJ on my phone in bed. A terrible habit, I know, but the baby has a habit of waking me up about 5.30 am and then going back to sleep, leaving me just lying there staring at the ceiling. And I saw [ profile] raitala's latest, absolutely incredible [ profile] hd_level_two art HERE and I got whooshed so hard again I went a bit giddy. Her art always used to leave me breathless and flushed, and now she has discovered animation I swear she may actually kill me.JUST LOOK AT THEM! The words, they are all gone.

Then over breakfast the gorgeous [ profile] marianna_merlo had made such a lovely post about OTPs. Just another super nice fandom discussion that reminds you what a great community this is.

Finally I get home at the end of a long day and [ profile] citrus_lime has drawn me totally NSFW art:

Don't click unless you want to see a naked Draco Malfoy with his hands tied giving Harry a blow job. Gosh, who would want to see that? )

I am also just about to submit my [ profile] hp_drizzle fic, yay! This fest looks so original and I had a hoot writing for it. And [ profile] mini_fest is accepting prompts from today! Go and leave your Christmassy based HP prompts for any pairing.

So in short, I basically adore this kind of day, where I feel like I've fallen in love with Harry and Draco all over again (and all of you, too), and I want to shout it from the rooftops.

but come and see if you can teach Akinator to guess Stanley the beetle from All Life is Yours to Miss. I've done it once, so with luck it should start to work, now.

If you have not played Akinator before, it is a really clever and surprising programme for guessing what character you are thinking of. For instance, it can guess if you are thinking of Draco Malfoy in about 12 questions, which is quite scary. It even asked me if I was in love with him! (for the record, I said 'probably', which was a bit coy of me, but then it's quite a personal question :DD)

However - one question it asked me about Stanley, I was not sure of the answer. It asked if Stanley could fly and I was like "oooooooh, CAN he?"
I mean, beetles do usually have wings, but not all beetles can fly, and perhaps Stanley could fly if he was little, but is not aerodynamic enough at his expanded size. Does it mention it in the fic? I can't remember.

E.T.A. quote from All Life is Yours

"Stanley hops from side to side and flaps his (non-functioning—Draco has checked) wings in a well-worn entreaty to be picked up and carried around, but receives only a stern look in response."

I now need to know HOW you check a beetle's wings are non-functioning. I strongly suspect Stanley of shamming. He can fly really. I just know it.
