I've read your sign up and stalked you and I already love you a bit.

I'll do my very best to write you something special as a gift. Possibly something quite dirty. I think we're going to get along JUST FINE.

This was my gift for [ profile] anemonen:

Title: I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor
Author: [ profile] birdsofshore
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, brief Draco/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,000
Warnings: Homophobia (internalised, plus verbal and physical abuse). Draco has off-screen sex with other men before he and Harry get together. Harry attempts sex with another man but changes his mind. Plenty of antagonism. Fashions and music are not necessarily contemporary to the time period of the story. I sincerely apologise to anyone who lives in Walthamstow; I hear it's quite a nice place these days.
Content/Enticements: Clubbing, the Muggle world, coming out, first times, virgin!Harry, experienced!Draco, voyeurism, semi-public sex, jealousy, antagonism, pining, UST, flangst
Summary: Harry felt lit up from inside as soon as he entered the bar. There were blokes dancing together, their bodies close to one another, not keeping a wary distance as Harry was always careful to do when he was near another man. God, he wanted this – wanted it so much he could taste it, a metallic tang of heat and desire. He suspected nothing would ever be the same again – especially when he saw who else was in the room.

I'm so so excited I can finally talk about this, and most importantly, shout my head off about the amazing ART which [ profile] anemonen drew for it. LOOK AT THIS: Live here in the moment. I can't tell you how chuffed I was that Ane was inspired to create this stunning Draco. The whole picture fits my imaginings of the Tube scene from the story perfectly. And then I had to keep quiet and not say anything about it for WEEEEEKS! I nearly DIED. It's a gorgeous standalone picture of Draco so it won't spoil anything if you haven't read the fic, by the way. Please do leave [ profile] anemonen all the love if you go and take a look.

Wafflings about writing, with pictures and videos and stuff )

I promised [ profile] capitu I would make rec posts before reveals and she's not even here to see this, my second post. *sniffle* But I loved this fest so much, [ profile] hd_erised was absolutely mighty this year and I just wish I had more time to waffle on about all the fabulous things I read. This is a whistlestop tour of some more of my favourites. I'm still reading! Everything is amazing!

Four fic recs )
There'll be another post if I can squeeze an extra hour into the day - with art. THE ART! *flail* I don't think I can even pick my favourites. I might have to rec EVERYTHING. O_o
birdsofshore: (curlew)
I've been drowning in all of the glorious things that have been posted over the last month. I've hardly had time to comment properly, let alone rec, but I was determined to get at least one rec post in before [ profile] hd_erised reveals. Are you going crazy waiting like me? WHO WROTE MY GIFT FFS? I thought I knew, but I was wrong, and it's driving me up the wall, LOL!

Recs: fics and a podfic )

I'm SO happy about my assignment I could cry. Honestly. *hugs self* *hugs everyone* *sniffles incoherently*

The [ profile] hd_erised mods are goddesses. How can they match all those disparate people up and somehow make it all WORK?

I really really hope everyone is feeling good about their match. If you're feeling worried, I don't know if it helps, but last year I was pretty intimidated and unsure about writing for the super-fabulous tryslora, but it turned out to be a great experience.

Good luck, everyone!

birdsofshore: (curlew)
Yay, reveals! Claiming my [ profile] hd_erised fic. \o/

Title: Rough Magic
Author: [ profile] birdsofshore
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,500
Warnings: Some mild d/s themes (a little light magical bondage), some mild consent issues
Content/Enticements: UST, first times, outdoor sex, post-war, the Forbidden Forest.
Summary: Malfoy's magic has run wild. But though wild magic is unpredictable and greatly feared, Harry's damned if he's going to let Malfoy rot in St Mungo's while they work out what to do with him.

Ramblings, thanks, and art )

Title: Undone
Artist: [ profile] raitala
Characters: Hugo Weasley, Scorpius Malfoy, Albus Severus Potter
Rating: G

asdfghjklssdfghjkl, would you look at this, [ profile] raitala made art for the second part of my Draco/Albus Severus story, Undone. It's the moment when Hugo, Scorpius and Albus see Draco arriving at the party, and oohhhhhhhh, it's so perfect! I had such fun thinking about the clothes that young wizards would wear at a party, 25 years down the line, and [ profile] raitala has captured them on paper brilliantly. Albus and his pouty face, and the million tiny buttons! Look at Scorp with his handsome face and sharp threads. And Hugo! My god, he's perfect! The whole thing makes me beam.

Getting art for my fic is just about my favourite thing in the world. I feel like Christmas came early. The art is completely WS and you don't need to have read the fic to enjoy it, because it also works simply as a great portrait of 3 next gen characters. Please leave the creator lots of love. ♥

Art for Undone

I have got LOADS more Draco/Albus planned, by the way, so thanks so much to everyone who commented and made me feel less of a pervert for wanting to write Albus getting thoroughly bummed by Draco again and again and again.

TALKING OF CHRISTMAS. Erised tomorrow.

I've got a first draft done for my [ profile] hd_erised fic. \o/ Now it's gone out to beta *nail bites*.

But, more importantly, [ profile] hd_fanart fest has begun!

If you haven't seen the opening piece of art, please go and look, because it's swoony-good. I've been stalking this Mystery Artist for a loooong time in hopes that she would one day draw H/D, and now she has, I hope we're all agreed that we must keep her, yes? *seals all exits*

The Holly and the Hawthorn (H/D, R) is mesmerisingly lovely. I just opened the page again to get the link, and got trapped in its evil gorgeousness all over again. I must have lost hours of my life to this piece. *happy sigh*

Please give the artist much love! Perhaps she'll stay with us forever? ♥

I didn't get mine yet, but, looking at my flist, they are starting to go out RIGHT NOW!

OMG, I am literally quivering with excitement. I can't wait to see who I get; I just want to get down in their sign up and roll around in it.


Oh, this is just too thrilling. I am refreshing my email like an idiot. Have you got yours? Are you waiting? Are you excited? PLEASE come and squee and snivel with me.

And here is some love for the dear [ profile] hd_erised mods who spent all week fretting over getting us all the perfect match, and are sending ALL those assignments out, one by one  ♥ ♥ ♥
birdsofshore: (curlew)
I've been looking forward to finding the time to post and say thank you for all the wonderful things I received over the Christmas period.

Festive gifts )

My erised story )
birdsofshore: (curlew)
Just my usual kind of post blethering about fannish things and pointing at things I found amusing. :D

I read Hitchhiker's with my son... )

Bit of stuff about H/D fests... )

Finally if you made it through all that, (or if you just want to skip straight to the funny part):

Funny videos, yay! )
