I've noticed a few people doing this and thought it looked quite fun, as much as anything else! I hope it might be helpful in the possibility that you were writing something for me, I suppose, but I am really pretty easy to please, so don't feel the need to stress at all.

YES, PLEASE, and no, thanks )

I hope this might be helpful in some way. Are there topics I've forgotten? Or is it just much too long? I might update at some point to talk about things I like in art, but it's pretty much the same as this, I suppose.

Please do comment if you want to say, "Yay, I'm so happy we share a love of.... " :DDD

Feel free to ask about anything that is not clear (if you don't want to spoil the surprise, you could ask [livejournal.com profile] omi_ohmy or [livejournal.com profile] raitala, who are both fairly familiar with my perversions, heh.) Or, alternatively, just don't worry, and write what you like, anyway! For each of the things I've said I dislike, I can probably think of at least one fabulous story that I've enjoyed with that thing in it. Thank you so much if you were interested enough to read this.

AAAAARGH

When you are meant to be writing H/D and your Albus/Scorpius feels keep getting in the way :/

My precious babies:
AS/S art... (image heavy) )
birdsofshore: (curlew)
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 is for anyone who has read Euphoria / Rapture, my series about Draco, Albus and Scorpius getting it on. (yes, I know there are only about 5 of you, but I love each and every one of you :DD)

What house do you think Euphoria!Albus was in at Hogwarts? And please tell me why in the comments.

[Poll #2046882][Poll #2046882]

I am planning some more of the series, and I'd love to hear what you think, and why. ♥

(p.s. Blatant self-promotion :D If you haven't read the stories yet, and you think you might enjoy a filthy cross gen threesome, they are now both on AO3:
Euphoria
Rapture

as well as LJ:
Euphoria
Rapture)

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 [livejournal.com 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.

I posted a fic at [livejournal.com profile] hp_kinkfest.

Title: Hand in Glove
Author: [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore
Artist: [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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:



*STARES*  ♥

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.

First of all, THREE of my prompts at [livejournal.com profile] hp_kinkfest have been claimed (one for fic AND art *flail*), and one at [livejournal.com profile] dracotops_harry, and I'm so bloody excited! I don't know who you are but I love you a lot already. Are you OK, mystery creators? Do you need anything while you're busy with that? I mean, can I get you a glass of water or a back rub or anything? No? OK. I'll just sit here very quietly in the corner. Waiting. WAITING AND FLAILING.

This was my gift for [livejournal.com profile] anemonen:

Title: I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor
Author: [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com profile] anemonen all the love if you go and take a look.

Wafflings about writing, with pictures and videos and stuff )

Reveals are up at [livejournal.com profile] hd_collab and I can lay claim to the two pieces I was lucky enough to have a hand in. There's also a load of waffle about them so feel free to skip it unless that kind of thing interests you.

Thoughts on collab )

I've been watching this creeping up, and today, my fic Hungry is just about to reach 20,000 hits on AO3. \o/ \o/ \o/
