Claiming my [ 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 [ profile] writcraft's brilliant prompt. I then also got [ 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 [ profile] lq_traintracks for much support and advice. Thanks also to lovely [ 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: [ 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!

Pairing: Albus Severus / Draco
Word count: ~500
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Cross gen, teacher/student, ridiculousness
Author's Note: For [ profile] maccadole, on your birthday. It has been such a delight to get to know you this year! Your exuberance for fandom and your irresistibly excitable comments bring so much joy to LJ. I'm so happy you found this little corner of fandom and I wish you a wonderful year ahead!

I do apologise that this is rushed, unbetaed, and really very silly, but it was written with love and appreciation!


Five Letters... )

We're celebrating this glorious day over at [ profile] writsbdayparty! The cunning [ profile] akatnamedeaster and [ profile] amorette have done a perfect job of hosting the celebrations and keeping it secret, but the comm has now been revealed and everyone can enjoy [ profile] writcraft's gifts and join the party.

I made an attempt at angst in her honour and you can read it at the comm:

Warnings: Angst, unrequited love, drunken fumblings, lack of a happy ending, ham-fisted attempts to write angst. Oh and unbetaed!
CC compliant, I think? With one minor spoiler.
Summary: It wasn’t supposed to be like this. They belonged together, didn’t they?
birdsofshore: (curlew)
Title: Distracted

A/N: For the wonderful [ profile] lq_traintracks on her birthday! Dear LQ, this is a paltry thing, but written with love.

Claiming my [ profile] hp_crossgenfest fic. \o/

Title: Observing the Proprieties
Author: [ profile] birdsofshore
Pairing(s): Albus Severus/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~7,000
Content/Warnings: Highly inappropriate teacher/student activity, some dub-con, age difference 17/43
Summary: Professor Malfoy is determined to teach his students to follow his instructions to the letter. The problem is that Albus enjoys detention just a little too much.
A/N: Thank you to the lovely [ profile] shiftylinguini for this most tempting and delicious prompt, to my beta, [ profile] lq_traintracks,  for being endlessly patient and helpful, and to [ profile] gracerene for being a brilliant mod and running such a great fest.

I got a bit stuck with this one and in fact dropped out of the fest at one point. Then at the last minute, inspiration struck again and I was able to squeak it in just in time. I chose this prompt because I cannot refuse anything [ profile] shiftylinguini asks of me I was intrigued by the erotic potential of directing and not touching. I hope I did it justice. Thank you to everyone who gave this a try - your comments were much appreciated. ♥

Observing the Proprieties

The week-long party we've been hosting at [ profile] dracomalfoy is over, and you can see the masterlist here, with the 30+ super entries that were created for the fest,

Here's the fic I wrote for a very inspiring prompt:

Title: After the Battle
Author/Artist: birdsofshore
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Draco featured: Repentant!Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word count/medium: ~1500
Warnings: Unbetaed
Summary: For snowgall's brilliant prompt: Draco offers a "thanks for saving the world" blowjob to Harry soon after the Battle of Hogwarts.

And I wanted to share: this makes me happy every time I see it. *snigger* YOU ARE THE OWNER. I don't dare imagine what Draco would have to say about that.

birdsofshore: (curlew)
Title: Rapture
Author: [ 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 [ 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, [ 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 [ profile] lq_traintracks and [ profile] who_la_hoop for betaing this for me.
Rapture, part 1 )
birdsofshore: (curlew)
The first round of [ 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.
birdsofshore: (curlew)
I got tagged at [ 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 [ 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. ♥

Author’s Notes: Dear [ profile] shiftylinguini, I never meant to keep you hanging on like this for the ending but a vomity child situation developed here and things have been slightly fraught. APOLOGIES. I will now post this in haste. ENJOY, you delightful creature! This is the end of the story - I hope it gives you a fraction of the pleasure that your friendship, talent and enthusiasm have given me since we met. ♥

[ profile] lumosed_quill was a wonderful help with this but I have dicked around with it endlessly, so nothing here is her fault.

Rating: PG-13 (eventual NC-17)
Content / warnings: Age disparity, a little light Harry and Ron-bashing from Draco’s POV

Author’s Notes: For the incomparable [ profile] shiftylinguini on your birthday. Oh my word, isn’t it a joy to have you around the place? You bring amazing fandom enthusiasm, pretty boys with stunning noses, and monster veiny cocks. I thought *my* comments were excitable until I saw yours. Forever glad that you delurked. ♥

I’m sorry this is a puny thing, but I hope you enjoy. There are 8 drabbles in this set but I shall be posting in installments, totally not because I am still fiddling with the later ones. Have a wonderful day. I've been counting on my fingers for a while and I'm pretty sure it's your birthday now, even if you're asleep :D

Many thanks to lovely [ profile] lumosed_quill for the speedy help!

Thank you so much to lovely [ profile] lumosed_quill for the help.

I posted a fic at [ profile] hp_kinkfest.

Title: Hand in Glove
Author: [ profile] birdsofshore
Artist: [ profile] shiftylinguini
Kink Showcased: Glove kink
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~9k
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: His fingers are cool and steady against my skin and I imagine I can smell the scent of leather on them already, expensive, addictive... but it's not enough. He traces the line of my jaw, tilts my chin up so that I'm looking into his eyes. “Should I put the gloves on?” He sounds playful, as if this is just a game between us. A bit of fun.

“Yes.” My voice is always hoarser than I expect. I never remember quite how deep the knife-twist of desire bites into me.

Warnings: Glove kink. Hand kink. Sex in risky places. Antagonism. Some hints of D/s dynamics.
A/N: Massive thanks to the patient and brilliant dicta_contrion for beta services.

I really enjoyed getting stuck into this kink. I could sort of see the appeal of gloves, although it wasn't something that I'd ever thought about an awful lot... however NOW... O__O I'm all about gloves. I really enjoy when I can think myself into the headspace of someone with a fetish and try to get what it is all about.

When I was several thousand words into writing this fic I posted on LJ saying I was having some problems with Harry 1st person. I hoped people would have some tips for me. Ha! Ha! Instead, the consensus was, DON'T DO IT.

The problem was that I was already mightily invested in the story, and when I tried to rephrase into 3rd person I realised that it would need a total rewrite if I was going to change POV. So despite feeling really pigheaded for ignoring the advice, I persevered with 1st person. I know that it wasn't a total success, but I do feel parts of it worked well. I'm not sure if I'd attempt it again or not. I can totally see why people's advice was to steer clear, but I enjoyed trying, anyway. I'm still intrigued by what makes Harry sound like Harry, so I may well have another go one day.

The best thing for me about writing this was that there was one scene that I couldn't get out of my head. It's so simple, and funny really, considering all of the filthy goings on - but it's the part where Malfoy tells Harry to kiss the glove. It had such resonance for me and I could see it really clearly in my mind. So, I plucked up the cheek to ask [ profile] shiftylinguini if she fancied having a go at drawing something for the fic. And SHE SAID YES. ♥ My heart! That was amazing enough, but then after she'd read it, she produced something completely asdfghjksdfghjklfghjklasdfghjkl. I'm so so thrilled with it. Even if you don't fancy the story, you could go and leave some love for the art.

However, before linguini's incredible art existed, I did a little bit of internet research *cough* and found what I like to call Mr Glove!Dom. He was kind of inspiring to me while I was writing the fic and I thought it would be nice to share him with you:


Now my only problem is that I keep dreaming about buying pair of really fucking nice leather gloves. I've made a shortlist of the ones I want, and I can't afford any of them. *sigh* The pitfalls of fanfiction.

Title: Truth Will Out
Author: [ profile] birdsofshore
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Word count: ~4300
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Er, none? Sorry about that...
Summary: Sometimes you just need a little bit of a push to say what needs saying.
A/N: A belated Happy Birthday, Happy Valentine's, and WELCOME HOME to our darling [ profile] capitu. I started so many things for your birthday, dear! I tried to write filthy, I tried to write funny. I FAILED, and this happened instead, but it is sort of romantic, possibly? And it was written with love ♥

Thank you so much to [ profile] writcraft and [ profile] lumosed_quill for all of your help!

Truth Will Out )

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 )

A bit late, I know, but I'm claiming my [ profile] hd_fan_fair fic. \o/

Title: One Night at the Leaky
Author: [ profile] birdsofshore
Inspired by Pottermore entry: #C4. Gamp's Old Gregarious Beer
Rating: PG-13
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, Seamus/Dean
Warnings/Content Notes: Post Hogwarts, drinking games, Truth or Dare, drunkenness, tomfoolery, UST.
Summary: Harry should have known better than to accept a drunken dare. Especially when Malfoy was sitting right there, looking like that and wearing those bloody tight trousers.
Word Count: ~12.5 k

A/N: I do love [ profile] hd_fan_fair. Somehow the prompts always make me want to write something funny and light. This one came after two fics that were quite tough for me in different ways, and it was such a refreshing change. The only problem was that, after Euphoria, I had absolutely zero smut left in me. So, be warned, there is no bumming in this. No kink. Not even a hardening cock. Sorry! People very kindly forced themselves to read it anyway. :D

Thanks so much to [ profile] fantasyfiend09 for her help and advice, and to [ profile] writcraft for her patience and support with my last minute panics.

One Night at the Leaky
birdsofshore: (flapping)
For the most marvellous [ profile] lumosed_quill. \o/ Happy birthday, dear! I know we made a pact to write each other birthday drabbles this year, but I must say I do feel this is a puny thing to give you. You gave me a couple of prompts, but my mind latched on to the one about being really tired. I don't think you were even being serious, so, sorry about that. :D

Thank you for your friendship and support, and for the joy that your filthy and beautiful words give us all. I hope the next twelve months bring you success, love and happiness in everything that you do. ♥

Thank you so much to [ profile] gracerene and [ profile] who_la_hoop for offering advice and soothing my last-minute panics! I've dicked about with it no end, so any mistakes are all my own work.
