Welcome to my journal

Since my sticky post disappeared somewhere deep in the archive when I imported my LJ, I figured I might as well make a new one.

This is mostly a fandom journal. I draw a bit of fanart and I read and flail. My main fandom is Harry Potter, and I more often than not do slash. Usually of the Drarry variety. All fandom-related stuff, including all my fanart will be unlocked. All personal stuff is flocked. I love new friends, so if you think we have something in common feel free to add me. I promise I'm not scary :) Although if your journal is mostly empty or I don't know you I won't automatically add you back. So if we've never interacted at all before it would be nice of you to drop me a little message or a comment here as well.

I'm on Tumblr, where I also have a 1d sideblog. Come and say hi to me there, if we're not following each other already!

If you're creating something for me, here's a post about my likes and dislikes. Ps, you're awesome.

Also, I'm hopeless and haven't got an updated masterlist. If you want to browse my art it's better to just check out my art tag.


BLANKET STATEMENT:
I'm more than okay with all transformative work of my art, but please let me know so I can be appropriately excited about whatever you've made! Please don't repost my art or edits of it anywhere without my express permission.

Art: Belated happy birthday, dicta!!

I actually did post this on Tumblr a few days ago, but haven't have opportunity to make a proper post here until now. So here it goes!

Title: The Orchard
Rating: G
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary:
Potter took a deep breath and started again, his voice slow and even. “Red and green flushed. Thick skin. Crisp when you bite into them, not juicy, but a bit of give. Not too hard. And sweet, like a pear.”

“Mhm. Are you imagining the taste?”

“Yeah,” Potter breathed. “Do we eat them now?”

“We do.” Draco lifted his apple towards his mouth, but opened his eyes before he took a bite. His Roundway sat in his hands, as mottled and soft as it had been when he picked it up.

Potter, on the other hand, stood facing him, his hands wrapped around a perfect Roundway Magnum Bonum, and dozens more dotting the leaves around his feet. Draco held his breath as Potter bit into it.”

A Dreamwidth backup question

Hiya!

In these unpredictable LJ days, I'll probably try to be more active on Dreamwidth than on Livejournal. I've not been good at keeping up with dw this far, but I'll probably just have to get used to it. I've been importing my posts there, and I was just wondering about stuff. Obviously a lot of my posts include pictures, i.e. my art posts, and they're mostly hosted in my livejournal scrapbook. Sooo, does anyone know if they get backed up on dreamwidth as well, or if I'll have to find a new place for hosting them? From what little research I did it seemed to me that DW doesn't have that same picture hosting option (although I might be wrong, and if some of you know more about it please let me know!!)

So really, two questions:
- If LJ ends up shutting down or throwing us out, will the pictures in my backed up posts on dw still have them, or do I have to edit all the posts to host the pictures elsewhere? (If so, does anyone have any good tips? I've been using photobucket a bit, but it's so slow and full of ads for me D:)

- For future posting on dw, does anyone know if there's a way to host pictures directly on DW, that I haven't been able to find?

ETA: If I open pictures from a dw post, I get a link like this: https://p.dreamwidth.org/a3d73d147767/2711932-105165/ic.pics.livejournal.com/anemonen/67514132/113575/113575_900.jpg -- so it includes the original lj address, but it IS a dreamwidth address.... What does it meaaaan. I'm not very computer savvy.

Claiming my Kinkfest art!

OMG [livejournal.com profile] shiftylinguini wrote me the HOTTEST little fic for my art from [livejournal.com profile] hp_kinkfest! It's over here and I A+ recommend :D

Also figured it was about time I claimed it here as well. It's a James/Sirius piece, based on a prompt by shiftylinguini, and I had a lot of fun with it! Thanks so much to everyone who's left me such amazing comments on it! Sorry I'm taking a bit of time answering. Hopefully I'll get around to it vv soon.

Title: Make Me
Kink Showcased: forced silence
Rating: R (NSFW)
Pairing(s): James Sirius/Scorpius
Summary:
James looked at their surroundings. “If we’re going to do this we need to keep quiet. Think you can do that?”

The gleam in Scorpius’ eyes was unmistakable.
“I think you’re going to have to make me.”


Or, the Potter/Weasley clan is big and loud, not to mention nosy. Finding some privacy is not easy when you’re spending the holidays at the Burrow. You’ll have to make do with what you can find.

Warnings: None
Medium: Digital painting
Artist's Notes: Shiftylinguini, your prompt was absolutely delicious and caught my eye immediately. Hope you’ll like what I did for it. Thank you, loveliest [livejournal.com profile] capitu, for your help and support with this <3

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I wish you all the best on your day! Thank you for being you and for being my friend. You're such an amazing person and I'm so lucky to know you. Please accept my humble offering of some half naughty Drarry on your day. Maybe I ought to draw something other than kissing boys soon *hides* Hope you'll like it at any rate! And I hope your day and your coming year will be filled with joy and happiness. All the love <3<3

Sliiiightly nsfw.
Happy birthday Capi! )

Art: The usual rules

Title: The usual rules
Rating: G
Medium: Digital
Characters: Harry/Draco
Disclaimer: The characters belong to J.K. Rowling. No copyright infringement is intended and no money is being made by this fanwork.
Summary:

"Nice bed." I took a step towards Harry, trapping him against the dresser. He put his hands on my waist as I tipped up his chin towards me, the height difference wasn't much, a few inches, just enough that I had to bend my head slightly to kiss him.

I usually don't have patience for kissing but with Harry the usual rules didn't seem to apply.


- from Unexpected turn by [livejournal.com profile] oakstone730.

Notes: Dear [livejournal.com profile] oakstone730, I saw you wished for art for 'Unexpected Turn' for your Snowflake Challenge wishlist, and I wanted to give you that. It was such a lovely fic (so also thank you for pointing me in its direction), and I hope you like what I did for it! I suppose this can count as my Snowflake Challenge Day 7, because I completely fell off the challenge. The challenges from the last few days kind of stumped me, so I probably won't do the rest.

Claiming my Erised art

Reveals for [community profile] hd_erised is finally up, and what a wonderful fest it's been! I've yet to read it all, and I had to take a little break, so will come back to the rest soon. So many great fics and art! Wow that fest always deliver, doesn't it :D Anyways, here's my contribution!

Title: Make the darkness fade away
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: G
Art Medium: Digital paintings and sketches
Warnings: none
Summary: Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the lights.
- Albus Dumbledore

Only, sometimes that light can be found in the most unexpected places.

Artist's Notes: Dear, [personal profile] huldrejenta, thanks for your lovely sign-up; it was very inspiring. More than anything, I was taken by your sentence about Draco and Harry: "They both know light and darkness and can find what they need in each other." I thought that was so beautifully put. I took that and a few of your other likes and prompts and came up with this. Hope you like what I did with it! Happy holidays to you and your close ones <3 Thanks to the mods for being awesome, and to wonderful [personal profile] capitu for helping me brainstorm and beta.

Day 06

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.


- I always dream that someone will be inspired by my art to write something. So first wish - fic for my art.

- Ginny/Luna fic!

- I'm a very default icon kind of gal, but maybe it would be fun to have some for special occasions? Not character icons, but reaction icons sort of? Or funny ones?

Snowflake challenge, day 5


Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner


Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Soo, my reading lately has mostly consisted of Erised and some original mm novels, so I'm gonna rec my own gift as well as some of my other favourites from the fest and some arts from Tumblr. I'm still FAR from finished reading Erised, though, so there might be some amazing ones I've yet to read to. Also so much amazingness in everything there in general?

I'll just put in a general rec of all things Erised, art and fic. Because that fest is always so good. So so good.

Title: Into My Heart
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco (dur) with a side of Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~19,000
Warnings: None
Content/Enticements: friends with benefits, UST
Summary: No strings…easy. Right? Unless you're Draco Malfoy and you're having sex with Harry Potter.

My thoughts: This was my gift \o/ It's a friends with benefits story, which is one of my favourite tropes. There's such an explosive chemistry between Harry and Draco, and so much pining from Draco. Some great side characters too, in their friends. Loved their friendships.

-----

Title: Bound To You
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~28,000
Warnings: None
Content/Enticements: Accidental Bonding, Cursed Bonding, Curse Breaker!Draco, Cartographer!Harry, Unusual Careers, Lots of sass, Mild angst, Pining, Slow burn.
Summary: Hag magic is capricious and unruly, and Harry and Draco are bound to stay by each other’s side until they can solve the riddle. In between long car trips, misty rain, and midnight star charts, they begin to understand each other.


My thoughts: Wow this story has such a cool premise, and it explores so many interesting things wrt magic and careers. Harry and Draco is bonded to a curse, and the way the curse works is so different and creepy and interesting and the author does such a great job in exploring Harry and Draco's developing relationship through it. So much cleverness in this story.

-----

Title: The Loathly Worm
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~12,000
Warnings: See Erised post
Content/Enticements: Secret identities, evil ghosts, and a Loathly Worm. Oh, and the power of True Love!
Summary: When Draco Malfoy is forced to go undercover among the remaining Death Eaters in the aftermath of the war, the last person he expects to find there is Harry Potter.

My thoughts: Another very cool premise, with some really interesting takes on magic. And the story is told in such a different and interesting way too, sort of with flashbacks after the fact. Harry and Draco are both undercover in a Death Eater camp after the war, and are drawn to each other even not knowing who the other is at first. The story is intriguing and suspenseful and I love all the interesting details and their developing relationship.

-----

Title: A Ghost in the Garden
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~27,000
Warnings: See Erised post
Content/Enticements: Aurors, casefic, partners, pining, awkward bed sharing, sexual tension, snark, society shenanigans, dragons
Summary: That night Draco dreams, and he is the ghost in his garden. He is both silvered figment and his own solid and flesh face pressing against the window, watching. Spinning and spun, haunting and haunted. Turned and turning, an open mouth with no sound.
Harry and Draco are thrown together on an investigation into a sinister political movement.

My thoughts: This fic is so beautifully written, with this sort of permeating melancholy that I really love. It explores the politics of the Magical world, which is something I find really cool, as well as being a great auror mystery. So many good characterisation and the character arc is beautiful. Wonderful story.

---

Okay, over to some beautiful Tumblr arts:

This drawing by dasstark might be one of my favourite portraits ever of Ginny. She looks so fierce and beautiful and cool and her hair is so stunning. I might be in love.

This incredibly beautiful picture of the Marauders by upthehillart. The whole vibe of the picture is so great, with the warmth of the Gryffindor commonroom and the light from the fireplace. Plus, Sirius is stunning, which I guess is as it should be.

Also this stunning little comic by [personal profile] 8c of Ginny and Luna is too adorable for words. *sighs happily*


---

Also, in the end, does anyone fancy some One Direction fics? Because in this rec post I go on about all my favourites, and let's face it, I won't miss an opportunity to flail about them ;)

Snowflake challenge, day 1-3



Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner



Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Haha always difficult this one. I'm always more happy with my recent work than the older ones, so these are all fairly new.

The first one I posted very recently, this one (tumblr link) of Harry and Draco. It's slightly NSFW, but non-explicit.

Also quite happy with the drawing I made for the tropes fest this year. My trope was time travel (Tumblr link).

Lastly, I made a few drawings for the bookseries 'All for the game' by Nora Sakavic. The one I'm happiest with is probably this one of Andrew.

-----

Day 2

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I can't say anything other than Harry Potter here. Even though I entered fandom many years after I first read the books, they have influenced my life greatly both now and then. For one thing, it was the books that really opened my eyes to the fantasy genre. Another thing, it probably contributed a great deal to getting me to read books in English. After having to wait several months for the translation of Goblet of Fire, there was no way I could go through the same with The Order of the Phoenix. So I fumbled my way through it at age 14, and haven't looked back since. And then finally, it made me discover fandom and meet so many people that I love so dearly and I can't imagine my life without it.

-----

Day 03

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


The biggest one here is a real life one, that I won't put in the details of here in a public post, but I'm going to make some big changes in my life, career wise, and I really look forward to that. Other than that I want to keep playing Rugby that I just started with, and get the hang of that. Fandom wise I want to be better at being consistently active, as well as further develop my drawing abilities.

My recent fest art

I've participated in [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest and [livejournal.com profile] hd_fanart this autumn, so here's my art for those two :)

Title:
It's taken me so long
Pairing(s): Albus/Scorpius
Rating: G
Art Medium: Digital painting
Summary: Albus has been having feelings for his best friend, Scorpius, for ages, and the end of their last Hogwarts year feels like a time limit to tell him.
Artist's Notes: Dear _melodic_, your prompt would've made such a lovely pining story, but since I'm making art this is more of a "how does it go" piece than anything else. Hope you'll like it still :) Thanks, gracerene for creating this lovely fest for us again!! Title is from Shura - "2Shy".

Title: Sea Creatures
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Media: Digital painting
Rating: G
Summary: Some sea creatures enjoy sunny days together in the shallow waters.
Notes: I've never drawn anything like this before, but when I looked through the prompts list this jumped out at me. The combinations of merpeople and wonder and touch was very inspiring. Hope you'll like it :)

from All Our Secrets Laid Bare by [livejournal.com profile] firethesound.

Notes: [livejournal.com profile] firethesound, I very recently reread this wonderful story of yours, and I find the idea of Draco scowling at being caught out, wearing Harry's 'Pocket shirt' so endearing. I'd really wanted to make you something for your birthday, but had absolutely no time back then, so consider this a veeeery belated birthday present? I'm sorry about the wonky hood, but those things are hard to draw.

Harry Potter and accents

I have a lot of love and fascination for language in general and different British accents in particular, and found this magnificent post on Tumblr about it today. Anyone of you have any particular headcanons there? I'd love to hear. Here's a magnificent excerpt from the post with Sirius accidentally revealing his OTT poshness:



All in all I very much recommend reading it in its entirety here. I was also rather fascinated by the part about Justin Finch-Fletchey and his fall from the elite at Eton to being a Muggleborn at Hogwarts and I wish someone would explore that so I could read!!

and I'm absolutely not taking credit for this, I just didn't have any other meta tags..
