I adore this fest and can't wait to dream up some prompts for this year. I hope you'll all think of some tempting scenarios for our lovely H/D artists. <333 Personally I'm thinking AUROR INTERROGATION, PERIOD COSTUMES, and SOAKING WET DRACO - I have numerous scenarios for the last one, heh.

WOOHOO! The fabulous [ profile] citrus_lime is taking art commissions at outrageously reasonable prices! Have a look at what she can offer here at her LJ

She is such a talented artist and inspires me with so many H/D feels. Here are two of my favourite pieces by her.

The Time Has Come

Gosh, the slashy OOOMPH I get from this! The intensity of the look between them, and that's before I even start on the outfits and the colours and god, Draco's EARRING <3333

And then here is a fabulous, definitely NSFW H/D sketch that she made for me: (warning, blow job)

[ profile] citrus_lime is basically an all-round wondrous person, and I heartily advise you to look at her commissions post, fling money at her and stand back to see what beautiful things occur.

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'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? ♥

Well, it was my birthday last week, and I had the most amazing time. Me and Mr Birds and the boys had a really super family day planned, and that all went well and I'll tell you about it in a bit. And I had a great time later, seeing my friend and going out to the cinema, and that was fabulous, too.

But, the thing that really floored me was the ~~FANDOM LOVE~~. OMG, you chaps really know how to make a person feel special. The internet connection where we were was a bit crappy, but I kept getting bursts of it and then just DYING with laughter or hotness or just perfectness at the things that were happening on LJ. [ profile] catplusfox just said it was like I was buried in fandom love, and, wow, it's a great thing to be, that's all I am saying.

I have to share all the brilliant things with you. I honestly feel like the luckiest bird ever. Take a deep breath, because it's all too good and too much fun.

An embarrassment of riches )

I was going to also talk about RL stuff that happened that day, but it got too long, so I'll do birthday part 2 very soon.
birdsofshore: (curlew)
Lo, it is the natal day of that most beauteous lady, [ profile] alby_mangroves. Yes, this is me trying to talk mediaeval because, *cough*, Merlin, OK?

Right, this is the thing. Alby and I don't really share a fandom. My love for her is like a hand reaching out across the barricades. And so it's very hard for me to give her a proper present on her birthday. So, instead, I present, the [ profile] alby_mangroves Birthday Crushy Love Fest Explosionathon. (Good name, hmm? ;-)).

I want everyone to worship at her feet enjoy her talents as I do. You don't need to like Merlin to enjoy hot m/m art, do you? No, you don't. Nor to appreciate some joyful and unashamed celebration of the male form. So let me show you around some pretty, pretty things, from one of the most gorgeously nice people on LJ.

And maybe you H/D fans will be seeing MORE of her work very soon *gloating cackle*

Recs and adoration this way ----> )
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Alby, you angelic creature! \o/ The boys dressed up smart specially for you.

Fandom has made me so happy this week! I never realised how major my semi-public sex kink is before, but I have been rolling around like a pig in clover over at the Anywhere but the Bed comment fest.

A bushel of recs )

In other news, [ profile] 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*
birdsofshore: (flapping)
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.

Recs this way )

Darling [ profile] dustmouth has been doing request sketches, and then posted the most amazing set of things for us all to enjoy. It's almost too awesome. There is dancing, and bums, and cats, and bums, and trying on trousers, and bums, and cooking, and REALLY SO MANY BUMS. My second favourite is Draco trying to see if his bum looks good in his new trousers, and Harry coming home and catching him. DRACO'S FACE, OMG. I have looked at it about 16 times and I just can't stop hooting. It's so perfect.

But, my FAVOURITE favourite is the one for ME and it's for my FIC and I'm SO HAPPY and please give [ profile] dustmouth all of the love (and go here and see all the others; it's a total treat).

I've been so looking forward to finding the time to sit and write this rec post. I was so amazingly lucky last week while Let Me Count the Ways was on, that I didn't really know where to put myself. It was just one day of massive excitement after another.

Much happy squeeing )
birdsofshore: (curlew)
But first....

~~ 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 [ profile] 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:

~~ Furthermore, [ profile] 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.

when we're done sleeping (we'll stay busy dreaming)

A fic, some poetry, and some art. Yay!

This way to the recs )

I think I am in love with Leigh Lahav. Her videos are so funny, clever and cute, and she makes being a fangirl look COOL instead of sad and desperate.

Fangirls go back to school video )
This made me laugh this week:

Marauders dream cast )
J and I have been watching the Hitchhikers' TV series and now I REALLY REALLY NEED MORE FORD / ARTHUR SLASH. I am not proud. I'm begging you, flist. Omi wrote me this wonderful thing but it just made me want moooooore.
Capitu is hosting this interesting rec list. Yay, for reminders of much-loved stories, and finding new authors and fics:

Self-pimping rec list )


Did you see the first Level Two episode? What did you think? My crushing on artists is reaching new, preposterous heights, because there is more than one of my favourite artists working on this project TOGETHER, and my heart just can't take it. Look at this:

Uninhibited squeeing )

Finally, I am impatient for [ profile] hp_drizzle and [ profile] hp_silencio to start posting!! New fests woohoo!

How was your fandom week?
birdsofshore: (curlew)
I finally finished this really bad copy homage to [ profile] dustmouth's beautiful beautiful art. I am pleased with some parts and not so pleased with others.

Here it is:

People on my flist, if you don't know [ profile] dustmouth, (and I sort of suspect you may have seen some of her work somewhere lately *whistles*), she does the most delicious, original, emotional drawings and is basically a fandom treasure.  ♥ ♥ If you go to look at her art, I think you will adore it.
