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.

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.

So I fulfilled the challenge and made a likes/dislikes post. So if you're writing anything for me, here's what I enjoy the most. You are awesome, btw!

Just popping in to post my art from kinkfest! It's a bit of an angsty thingy where Ginny has a very desperate and unrequited crush. NSFW! The prompt was about angsty masturbation.

I have been terrible at following the fest, sadly. I'm in teacher practice and it's consuming me entirely, both time wise and energy wise. I'll be back on the other side of it :P

Title: Why her
Character(s): Ginny, unrequited Ginny/Hermione
Rating: R
Warnings: NSFW and angst
Summary: Ginny has a desperate crush, but she knows it can never happen.
Notes: [personal profile] writcraft, thanks for the wonderful prompt. This started out a bit simpler, but it felt a bit too in your face. So I took your "go as angsty as you like" at face value and added a ton of angst. Hope you like it!
Thanks so much to [personal profile] gracerene for very helpful feedback and cheerleading <3

I actually made two things this year :D

My assigned giftee was pygmy-puffy. While I'm always a bit terrified to draw for other artists, they had a lovely and inspirational sign-up. And their wish for "soft pastels" made me want to try something new. So I made lineart and found some beautiful water colour brushes for photoshop online and some lovely soft colour palettes. This multi-panel thing is what I came up with.

Title: Tiny dogs and surprise visitors
Rating: General Audiences
Art Medium: Digital
Warnings: Past Relationship
Content/Enticements: fluffy flat faced dogs, happy ending
Summary: It's been years and Draco knows that he ought to let it go, but he can't help wondering what might've been.
Artist's Notes: Dear pygmy_puffy, thank you for your lovely signup. It was such great inspiration for me, and it made me try out a style I haven't before which was a lot of fun. I saw you wanted atmospheric scenes, pastel colours, fluffy, flat faced animals and glimpses of everyday life and your prompts mentioned cottages and rural life. So I mixed it all together, and this is what came out (I'm sorry I went for a dog rather than a cat, but I know such a dog and she's adorable so I couldn't help myself). I hope you'll like it <3 Also huge thanks to Tami for volunteering to look it over for me. You were a great support and inspired me to add a panel. Lastly, thanks heaps to old and new mods for running such an excellent fest!


The second one was a pinch hit that the mods asked me to do, making something for thistle_verse who was also a pinch-hitter, and I was very happy I was able to do it :))

Title: We're alone just like you said
Rating: General Audiences
Art Medium: Digital
Warnings: None
Content/Enticements: mountainous landscapes and boys in love
Summary: Tired of the relentless media attention in the UK, Draco and Harry finally find some peace and quiet in the American wilderness.
Artist's Notes: Dear thistle-verse, I sneakily spied on your fandom social media in the hopes of coming up with something that would appeal to you. I hope what I ended up with might be to your liking <3 Thanks so much to [personal profile] gracerene Grace for lovely support and feedback, and to the mods, brilliant as always. The title is from "Conrad" by Ben Howard.

Here's my art for this year's [community profile] hd_erised :)
Thanks for all the lovely comments! I'll get back to them as soon as I can.

Title: A Quiet Morning
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: G
Art Medium: Digital
Content/Enticements: nipples and dinosaurs?
Summary: There's this point in a relationship where everything is just... comfortable. A quiet morning is suddenly so much more.
Artist's Notes: Dear anokaba, thank you for your lovely signup. Your prompts for domesticity, shoulder kiss and dressing inspired me. I hope you like what I did with it. Thank you, as always, to my dear beta who gave me the encouragement and inspiration that I needed!

Day 12

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a podfic, an icon, a sketch, a meta, or a rec list. Arts and crafts. Cross stitch. Draft an essay about a particular medium. Put together a picspam or a fanmix. Write a review of book you love, a ship manifesto, a you-should-be-listening-to-this-band essay. Create something.

So I finally managed to finish what I started for this one :) A little moment between Parvati and Lavender after the war.

Art under the cut, or on Tumblr.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner 2018

Day 11

Share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life.

Like, the obvious one is of course Harry Potter, because, obviously. I'm sure I've used that before though? But I don't know what else I should choose, so maybe I'll just talk about it some more. I think I haven't talked about this part before: English.

I read the first three books in one go when they'd all been translated into Norwegian (I think it might have been around the time the translation of Prisoner of Azkaban came out), and then had to wait for absolute aaages for Goblet of Fire (like half a year, but when you're 11 that's ages). And not only that - I had to wait further half a year for the Norwegian translation of it, which was torture. I remember I actually tried to read my half-sister's copy of the English version, but I was only 12 at the time, and with such a big book the challenge was a bit too much. But THEN when Order of the Phoenix came out, it was the summer when I was 14 and then I was determined - I would read it in English when it was released. And so I worked my way diligently through it, through Rowling's penchant for using weird words (I particularly remember 'protuberant') and I succeeded! I reread it in Norwegain when the translation came out, but it was the last book I did that with.

And so it opened a completely new world for me. If I could read an 800 page book in English, I could read anything! I've loved reading in English ever since, and I love the richness of the language. Maybe that's why I ended up studying English now?

I'll have to do Day 12 when I finish a thing I'm working on now *g*

Day 13:
In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

I'll set myself a fannish goal for this one - to be more active. To hang around more here, at least a couple of times a week, to draw more and.. stuff? I'll try to participate in a handful of fests (I think maaaybe Big Bang? If I can convince myself that some writer would like to have their fic illustrated by me XD). I won't be too ambitious, and rather pleasantly surprise myself than fail.

So, that's it for today folks :D

Day 8

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much.

The teachers were of course forbidden from mentioning the interview by Educational Decree Number Twenty-six, but they found ways to express their feelings about it all the same. Professor Sprout awarded Gryffindor twenty points when Harry passed her a watering can; a beaming Professor Flitwick pressed a box of squeaking sugar mice on him at the end of Charms, said, 'Shh!' and hurried away; and Professor Trelawney broke into hysterical sobs during Divination and announced to the startled class, and a very disapproving Umbridge, that Harry was not going to suffer an early death after all, but would live to a ripe old age, become Minister for Magic and have twelve children.
From Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Idk, I just really love this part. It's such a dark book in so many ways, with all of Harry's issues - everything he's going through, so this just felt like a little island of light and happiness and it made me smile.

Day 9

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.

Oh, I don't know!! I haven't created that much the last year......

Okay, so I'll go for these:

This one of Harry I made at the end of last year. I just really like how it turned out.

This Ginny/Luna piece I made last summer, because Linny, also pride and London and I like the mood of it.

And lastly this James/Sirius piece I made for last year's kinkfest. (I also just realised I'd never replied to the comments on it #fail I'll have to do that.)

Day 10
In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (Or a few!) Tell us what makes it work for you, and why it appeals to you so much. Talk about what you like to see in fanworks featuring that theme most.

Oh, there are many things I really love, but maybe one of the things that resonates emotionally with me the most is a character's realisation/struggle/acceptance with their sexuality, their discovery of what that means and how good it feels to find out who they are, and coming out scenarios. When those are done in good ways, there's hardly anything that tugs on my heartstrings as much as that, and I really love when authors explore that. Especially subverting or challenging norms and figuring out who they are on their own terms.

Day 7:

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are.

Oh gosh this is an awkward one isn't it.... Well, here goes.

anemonen: (Default)
Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner 2018

Another day, another batch of Snowflakes :D

Day 4

In your own space, create a fannish wishlist. No limits on size or type of fanwork; just tell us what you’d like to see.

Oh gosh, what would I like?

- Some plotty and deep diving femmeslash!! Preferably Ginny/Luna or Parvati/Lavender, but everything goes.

- Other femmeslashy things

- As always fic/ficlet for my art <3

- Recs for something good that you'd think I'd like? Something edgy and subversive maybe? Or political?

- For you to tell me what artist/song/music you associate with drarry :)

Day 5

Recommend a fannish or creative resource.

I think I'll skip this one, because I've been so absent lately that I don't really know what's up :(:(

Day 6

Leave feedback for a fanwork. Or multiple fanworks. It can be as simple as I liked this to a detailed list of all the things you loved about the fanwork. The key is to leave some sort of feedback.

Did it!
anemonen: (Default)
Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner 2018

Day 1

In your own space, talk about why you're participating in Snowflake and, if you’ve participated in the past, how the challenge has affected you. What drew you to it? What did you take away from it? What do you hope to accomplish this year?

I really like this challenge, and found it a fun way to start the year the previous times I've participated. It's a fun way to both interact and to reflect on fandom and my participation in it. I've also had a bit of an absence from fandom, so I'm sort of hoping it might kickstart my being more active again? Like, I know I've said this many times, so don't trust me *hangs head in shame*

Day 2

In your own space, share a favorite memory about fandom: the first time you got into fandom, the last time a fanwork touched your heart, crazy times with fellow fans (whether on-line or off-line), a lovely comment you’ve received or have left for someone.

Ohh there are many many things here. I've been lucky enough to meet fandom people a few times, both one on one and in bigger groups as part of meetups, and those are some of my favourite experiences that I've had. It's just so nice to meet someone you already know so much about you, and who knows about a part of my life I don't really share that much, so it seems so relaxing and natural from the get go <3

Also, I just have to mention this too since the challenge mentioned lovely comments, the comment [personal profile] birdsofshore left me after I drew Draco for her wonderful fic that she wrote me for erised two years ago. I was just so thrilled to be able to do something in return and then to get such lovely comments back from it. As if the fic wasn't enough of a reward as it was <3<3

Day 3

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

I've read wayyy too little fic recently, having been swamped in school reading, so I'll rec a few lovely art pieces:

This absolutely hilarious picture by the eminent [personal profile] 8c, featuring the pairing.... Ron/Cormac? Didn't see that one coming :D

This awesome and chill 90s Ginny by brokenphalange.

And this absolutely heartbreaking picture of little Harry in the cupboard under the stairs by rijsamurai.

Whooo I did it! Only five more to catch up on (six by tomorrow). Easy peasy :D

Also massively wondering whether or not I should sign up for Big Bang. It's such a cool challenge, but also a bit intimidating D:

Hey *waves*

Here's the art I made for Next-Gen fest this year. Thanks for all the comments <3

Title: (Just know that) I want you back
Pairing(s): Albus Severus/Scorpius
Rating: PG
Medium: Digital
Content/Warnings: None
Summary: Of course Al wanted him back. His nervousness from just moments earlier suddenly seemed impossibly silly.
Artist's Notes: Dear prompter, this might not have been quite what you had in mind, but I hope you still like it! I really like this pairing, so I couldn't resist getting to draw them kissing a little. Title is from the song by HAIM.

I should be reading for my exams, but since I'm a very sensible person I'm drawing Harry reading for his Auror exam instead. Now eating grapes and drinking wine and wondering what to do next. Maybe watch Stephen Fry's Oscar Wilde movie. That would be semi educational since we've covered Oscar Wilde in my literature course...

Anyways. Here's the Tumblr link and the pic itself is below the cut right here. It's very much safe for work.

I made a Ginny/Luna thing for Pride Month, hope you like it <3

anemonen: (Default)
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
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.”

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: -- so it includes the original lj address, but it IS a dreamwidth address.... What does it meaaaan. I'm not very computer savvy.

OMG [ profile] shiftylinguini wrote me the HOTTEST little fic for my art from [ 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
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 [ profile] capitu, for your help and support with this <3
anemonen: (Snitch)
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! )
