Since everybody's doing it, here's my fic round-up for 2009. I actually did manage to write three things. Fancy that!

Frozen, Poppy Pomfrey/Severus Snape, PG-13, written for HP Beholder 2009

The Full Circle, Doctor Who crossover, Remus Lupin/Tenth Doctor, rated R for some sexual contents and general emo-ness

Not the Model Boy of the Village, gen, Sirius-centric, R (for language), written for the Big Bang Blackout and based on Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer

The last one, I am rather pleased with, as I managed to create a Dumbledore who's so ambiguous that even I myself are not sure whether I can trust him or not. I found myself believing him, even though I knew I shouldn't, seeing as I wrote him and knew what he did last summer.
Whee! I've reached 20,000 words on my Big Bang Blackout fic! It's not finished yet, but at least I can be reasonably confident that I'll meet the deadline next month.

Title: Glowing Embers (The Phoenix from the Ashes Remix)
Author: Donna Immaculata
Characters: Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, Severus Snape, Albus Dumbledore
Rating: PG-13
Warning: Character Death

Glowing Embers
Thank you so much! Your parcel arrived today, and a cool-ass postcard is in the making.

I'd have loved to give you an Aziraphale/Crowley drabble, but I haven't started reading the book yet, so here's just a traditional cross-over to say, "Thank you".

Much too long for a drabble, because I haven't slept for 24 hours now and my brain won't cooperate the way it should. )
One of the first fics I've ever written was A Measure of Darkness for the Remus/Sirius Fuh-Q Fest, some time last year. Last week, [ profile] babycakesin drew my attention to the fact that the archive was down. It is back, but as I no longer had the fic on my computer, I decided to take no chances and post it here on LJ. It also gave me the opportunity to change a couple of things I wasn't happy about, like the story around Kingsley.

Written for the Remus/Sirius FQF, but it's gen. Not hard to find Remus/Sirius vibes, though, if you look for them. They touch, they talk, they sleep in the same bed.

Title: A Measure of Darkness
Raiting: PG-13
Summary: Peter visits James. Peter visits Remus. Peter looks and listens.
Word Count: 3365
Disclaimer: Not my characters. They belong to JK Rowling & Co.

The challenge was: From Peter's PoV.

This is what Peter saw. )
Man in the Mirror, the fic I wrote for the [ profile] mwppfqf, is based on an interpretation of MWPP as a group which had to fight more internal difficulties than generally assumed. Regardless whether one likes them and writes fun-oriented MWPP stories or whether one likes Snape and writes stories where MWPP gang rape all that moves, they are most often portrayed as a closed group. I think that from all we know about them, MWPP can be also interpreted in quite a different way.

And I felt the need to write down my ideas. )

My §$#*% provider managed to fuck up my Internet connection again. I can't believe it. Well, everything has been going smoothly for more than two years, and that's probably as good as one can wish for when dealing with telecommunication providers. And they promised it'll be sorted out by tomorrow. Hm.

In fandom news this means I haven't been around much; but at least I managed to post my MWPP Fuh-Q Fest fic Man in the Mirror. Just in time. (My apologies to [ profile] marinarusalka for being so late. It would have been sooner had I not been cut off from the Internet, honestly.)

It's not a particularly nice fic, so if you choose to consider MWPP as funny-fluffy-lovable pranksters with a heart of gold, you might not want to read it. But it's got Peter in in. And clumsy rape. I think that after what we saw in Snape's Worst Memory, it is legitimate to suppose that they had the prerequisites to make a very dysfunctional group. But this concept requires a more comprehensive post, and I can't be bothered to write it in an Internet cafe.

I have, however, employed my time quite well by writing 20 pages of Bill/Remus smut. The fic is thus finished (Thank God!), and as soon as my connection's back I will attempt to have it beta-read and posted. A nice, romantic story with lots of kissing and plenty of porn. And butter crumpets. I think Bill/Remus is my new OTP.
Having already missed [ profile] makesmewannadie's smutty words challenge, I wanted to make sure to contribute to [ profile] nimori's Pushbutton Words Challenge. I used all up to 'dragul'. Yes, including 'dragul'. Very silly at times.

It's Sirius/Remus and I'd say it's PWPBWLOD - Porn without plot but with lots of dialogue. They just wouldn't shut up.

I realised that there is a good reason why I don't write Sirius/Remus. I don't have the right feeling for them. While writing Sirius/Severus I feel very confident about interaction and dialogues ("I hate you!" - "I hate you more!" - "I'll hex you!" - "I'll hex you first!" - bitelickmoan), my feel for the interaction between Sirius and Remus is rather wobbly. I don't think the fic's actually bad, but it's so - blah.

But there's fluff and sex in it, okay?

Title: Panic
Rating: R
Summary: Serious talk and silly sex.
Disclaimer: Not mine. Although I'm getting there...

Panic )
...for my own convenience.

I've been linking to my fics in the memory section and decided to include links to the two fics I've never posted on or linked to from LJ. Here be Sirius, Remus and Peter-centred stories. )
Three fics I enjoyed recently. Remus in in all of them. So not surprised.

Of Monsters by [ profile] nitroxa is a haunting, desperate take on the confrontation between Severus and Remus after the Shrieking Shack Incident in sixth year. Some of the best sensory writing I've ever read. By far the best confrontation fic I've ever read. Nitro's characters feel exceptionally real, and both Remus and Severus are written as teenagers who are too old for their age in many respects, but at the same time clueless and insecure when it comes to personal interaction. The dialogues are spot-on, absolutely in character (there's a brilliant conversation about potions) and the sex is awkward adolescent fumbling and - most importantly - doesn't seem out of place. Remus' subsequent confrontation with Sirius is almost non-existant, and therefore exactly like I picture it. Unlike in most fics I've read, I don't imagine Remus and Sirius to have been very eloquent on that matter. Remus, because he didn't want to let on how hurt he was and because it was easier to ignore than to confront Sirius, and Sirius, because, well, he was being Sirius. Rated R.

Pomfrey’s body blocked most of the procedure from view but Severus watched anyway as she dressed wounds he couldn’t see (and what on earth could have so badly hurt a werewolf?), held Remus’ head at an angle and slipped a spoon into his mouth, wiped his face and hair with a wet cloth, made soothing nonverbal sounds at him. She hadn’t been as warm to Severus when Potter had dragged him in. She had clucked and patted his head and called him dear and given him a warm drink and a pill. He envied Remus’ bathrobe. His robes were damp-gritty like unwashed sheets and still smelled of the tunnel, and of his sweat.

[ profile] stellamaru wrote a Sirius/Remus fic I like (and for which I owe her feedback, um...). Still Be All Right explores the often-discussed and oh so obvious possibility of Sirius' drinking the Polyjuice Potion to leave Grimmauld Place and go shopping with Remus. Stella's characterisation of these men happens to correspond with mine, and the fic appeals to me so much because it's based on the assumption that Remus and Sirius have never really talked about the things that stand between them.

Sirius focused his hard gaze on Remus. "Go to hell, Remus Lupin," he said, pushing Remus away with a hard blow to the chest.

Remus shook as he caught his breath. "Say that again, and I'll send you there," he choked out, rushing at Sirius and pulling back a fist.

"I've been, thanks," Sirius said

Heritage by Seeker made me laugh. It is a highly original take on the good old the-Malfoys-have-Veela-blood scenario, focusing on Lucius. Now, I am not a Lucius fan, but Seeker writes him just the way I imagine him to be (and which isn't often explored): not overly intelligent, but displaying a clever, calculating, no-nonsense, to-the-purpose approach to problems, especially when his life is in danger. An original idea, dry and witty dialogues, combined with a characterisation that is rather over-the-top and yet so very canon, and of course, oooh, shiny! I like muchly.

"Father?" Draco asked tentatively. "What happened?"

"Disaster," Lucius told him bluntly, but with a kind edge that visibly frightened Draco.

In RL news: I'm invited to a party and can't be arsed to go. Yet, I promised. There was a party two days ago. And last weekend. And the weekend before. And before. And... Anyway, I'd much rather stay at home and watch TV. I already decided to drive so I don't get tempted to drink (too much). How the hell have I acquired the reputation of being a party girl? *whines*
As you all probably well know, the Protection from Pornography Week is in full swing. [ profile] sparrohawk had the cute idea to honour this occasion by writing pointless smut, and contributed a charming fic on her LJ. As I like the concept as well as her ficlet, here's my contribution. It's Sirius/Harry and, yes, it is NC-17.

Beware the Porn! )
I like Harry Potter )

My brother is a sexy bitch )


Padfoot/Buckbeak )

To finish this highly chaotic post on a completely different note: I decided to enhance my friends list tonight by adding a number of people whose LJs I've been checking frequently because I like:

a) their fics
b) their recs
c) their artwork
d) their opinions
e) their interests
f) them
