The HP Beholder reveals are up. This year, I did Art.



I've never done art before. Whilst drawing for the Beholder, I did idly wonder why I never have done art before, and then it hit me: When I first joined fandom, my fannish tastes were very much slash-oriented. And while I enjoy writing slash, I don't particularly like drawing men. It's funny, I've never really realised it before: drawing women is so much more enjoyable than drawing men. And so I guess it never occurred to me to create fanart to begin with. As I was branching out in my fannish interests and started to focus on rare pairings, I somehow never thought of drawing them, because by that time I saw myself as a writer

And then I decided to create art for the HP Beholder, and I enjoyed it so much, I will have to take up drawing again.

For now, here are Merope Gaunt and Tom Riddle.

Title: "Triptych: Seduction - Vows - Conception"
Recipient: Albalark
Artist: Donna Immaculata
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Merope Gaunt/Tom Riddle
Medium: Pencil, crayon, watercolours and charcoal on paper; collage
Warnings: None
Summary: Merope takes matters into her own hands.
Notes: Albalark had said she liked hopeful endings. This is as hopeful as it gets for Merope, I feel.

Seduction Vows Conception )

I always knew that I would try to make it look period-appropriate. My initial idea was to create a surrealistic collage in the style of Max Ernst's Une Semaine de Bonté, but it was surprisingly difficult to find good backgrounds. Eventually I decided to use slightly kitschy art nouveau motifs as frames and create a collage against textured, coloured backgrounds. I was dead-set on collage to make the characters look disconnected - from each other and from the world around them. Also, I could try out different backgrounds and frames without having to draw the characters from scratch every time.

Merope in the Seduction piece was the first character I drew. I spent an insane amount of time on her and still have preliminary sketches lying around. Poor Tom, I fear, never got as much attention as she did. In the first picture, I still managed to put reasonable effort into creating some details, such as his posture and the cigarette, but you can see how I can't be bothered with male characters: in the second pic, he is a grey block, and in the third one, he his mostly hidden behind Merope.

Despite the fact that Tom looks stiff and unnatural in the Vows piece, I am reasonably pleased with it, because by that time he isn't himself anymore. He is an object that Merope uses. They never interact, not once, not even when they're physically close.

So. This, in short, is the rationale behind the pictures. Oh, I should probably add that drawing and water colours are the only techniques I am familiar with. I wouldn't know how to create art digitally if my life depended on it.

I did squeeze in appearances of Remus, Sirius, Snape, Kingsley and Great Uncle Algie, some Weasleys, cats, goats, obscure crossovers, and divers alarums.

So, the great hp_beholder reveal's been up for two days... Many, many thanks for [livejournal.com profile] bethbethbeth for running this fantastic fest and, particularly, for presenting me with a request which proved so immensely enjoyable to answer.

On HP Beholder: All Things Right and Proper

And the version with some more typos fixed here on my LJ:

All Things Right and Proper, Part I )
I have been checking out the fic folder on my harddrive lately and have come across several fics that I have started writing at some point, liked the concept of, but never finished. This is one of them: I started writing it long before DH and have now adjusted a few details to make it fit into canon a slightly bit better. It's not exactly completely canon-compliant, but hey - it's just a PWP!

I have always been quite amused by the indignant outcry regarding Ginny's resemblance with Lily and how much Harry/Ginny smelled of unresolved mummy issues. Because if Ginny resembles someone, surely that someone is Molly. And there has been ample fodder for Harry/Molly in canon. To quote but a few instances:

GoF, Chap 31: "She bent down and kissed him on the cheek."

GoF, Chap. 36: "Mrs Weasley set the potion down on the bedside cabinet, bent down, and put her arms around Harry. He had no memory of being hugged like this, as though by a mother."

HBP, Chap. 4: "'You are sweet,' beamed Mrs. Weasley."

HBP, Chap. 17: "Mrs. Weasley sobbed harder than ever as she enfolded Harry in her arms."

HBP, Chap 19: "…now Mrs. Weasley seized hold of Harry and hugged him very tightly."

And in OotP Harry leaves the party following Mrs Weasley upstairs in "The Woes of Mrs Weasley", which, as I'm sure everyone will agree, clearly indicates that wild cross-gen orgies were supposed to happen upstairs.

Reasoning thusly, I decided to write the sadly underrepresented pairing Harry/Molly myself:

Title: The Infernal Machine
Author: Donna Immaculata
Pairing: Harry Potter/Molly Weasley
Rating: R
Warnings: Harry/Molly. Set during DH, Harry is 17. PWP.
Summary: Exhausted from the hunt for Horcruxes, Harry wants to go home.

A/N: The title is plagiarised from Jean Cocteau, whose play of the same title retells the story of Oedipus.

The Infernal Machine )
*makes a rare appearance*

I'm still alive, and I wrote fic. If anyone's at all interested: it's in the "Life on Mars" fandom, which I have only discovered about two weeks ago on account on not having been able to download the series before. I liked it, and I quite fancy Sam (big surprise there), and so I jumped on the chance to mess him about a bit. After all, the boy likes to suffer, doesn't he?

And, because I am sick inna head, I wrote him an incestuous relationship with his mother, to add to his other problems. (Also because I am quite in love with [livejournal.com profile] elen_ancalima's beautiful icon *points* as well as the fact that there is a television series out there that has a sock puppet appear in the role of the protagonist's mother. Hence a mother!fic it had to be.)


Title: A resident stranger, as it seems
Fandom: Life on Mars
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 3600
Characters/Pairing: Sam/Ruth
Warnings: Mother/son incest! Not graphic, though. Very, very tame, in fact.
Summary: Ruth is living on borrowed time.

A/N: John Simm said in an interview published under the BBC press releases: "At one point he meets his mum and she's beautiful and younger than him and he quite fancies her and she fancies him. She flirts with him and he flirts with her. That's got to mess with his head!"
- Why, yes. That's reason enough for me to mess with his and her head.

A resident stranger, as it seems )


On a different (though quite as sick) note: [livejournal.com profile] wildestranger made me read [livejournal.com profile] pre_raphaelite1's ficlet Pink Socks, and [livejournal.com profile] pre_raphaelite1, in turn, "inspired" me to write a Umbridge/Mrs Norris romance. Complete with purple prose and mentions of kitty!tongue.

Considering that the last fic I wrote was Tenth Doctor/Cat!Nun, a strange and worrying trend seems to evolve. I certainly will feel very dirty if the cat decides to spend the night on my stomach tonight and kneads my breasts into submission before going to sleep.
Title: Pure New Pleasure Seeker
Author: Donna Immaculata
Pairing: Ten/Novice Hame
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 1570
Warnings: Do you warn for cross-species in Doctor Who?
Disclaimer: The characters mentioned in this fic are not mine.
A/N: The epilogue was written before the fic and doesn't match its tone at all. But I couldn't resist using that last sentence. Just consider it some added bonus crack.
Is it wrong that I wrote this with the cat purring in my lap?

Pure New Pleasure Seeker )
Title: The Master and Bellatrix
Recipient: 021, Clementine Sweetfoot
Author: Morosia Millovitsch, pinch-hitting
Pairing: Bellatrix/Harry, with a side dish of Voldemort and a mention of Sirius
Words: 3000
Rating: adult
Warning: The request was: smut, somnophilia, dubious consent, bloodplay, and mild BDSM; I added torture, mindfuck, and masturbation
Summary: Cruciatus is Bellatrix' favourite curse
Author's Notes: Your request of "bloodplay", dear Clementine, did funny things to my brain. This is the result. I hope it's not too gross for your taste.
Also, bonus points to anyone who spots the literary reference.

The Master and Bellatrix
I made a pledge. Remember my pledge? It includes the sentence "However... given sufficient crack and an infinite number of monkeys, here's how a Remus/Molly shag might happen (though I sincerely hope it never does, and if it does, I just don't want to know)."

Well, this was a lie. Obviously, I am a sick, sick person, as I couldn't resist writing a fic based on my own nightmare scenario, without the help of crack or monkeys.

Title: Black Tears
Author: Donna Immaculata
Word Count: 2220
Pairing: Remus/Molly, Remus/Mrs Black (Yes, I am going to hell, why?)
Warning: dubious consent, character death (2x), possibly squick, alcohol abuse, adultery, general unpleasantness
Rating: N for nightmare
Disclaimer: This is not my fault. Minerva McTabby is to blame, as are [livejournal.com profile] fluffyllama and [livejournal.com profile] laurelwood, who made me do it.
A/N: completely and utterly unbeta-ed; this was supposed to be a humorous fic, but... well... it took a different direction; also, it makes slightly more sense if you read the aforementioned pledge first

Don't read if you: a) like Molly b) are easily squicked c) don't believe in Remus' Cock O'Doom believe that Remus is sweet and harmless

Black Tears )
Right, I've hardly dared hope that I would manage to finish and post the wank fic before I leave for holidays tomorrow, but lo and behold! Thanks to an incredibly speedy beta work by the lovely Llama, the thing is fit to be seen and can be read on [livejournal.com profile] wizardwank.

Title: Pureté Oblige
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: R
Characters: Bill, Ginny
Objects/Places: cigarettes, garden
Summary: Ginny watches.
Warnings: voyeurism, incestuous fantasies
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the charactes mentioned in this fic. I only like to watch.
Notes: Many thanks to the quickest beta-fingers in the south, [livejournal.com profile] fluffyllama.
I don't know why I always make Bill wank, every single time I write him...

Bill does the wanking, but the fic is Ginny-centred and not as smutty as it could be.

Fancy some voyeurism and incest fantasies? Click here.
Very belated, my contribution to [livejournal.com profile] aldalindil's It's All Been Done Fic Fest. It took an, ah, unexpected direction.

Why, though? I love Remus. Why am I doing this to him? See, I was writing this fluffy Remus/Bill fic, with just enough angst to guarantee some nice h/c and lots of warm fuzziness and kisses - and I got stuck. Remus's been hanging around with his shirt off and Bill Weasley's hands all over him for almost two weeks now, and I am lacking inspiration for writing the sex. But this fic *points down* virtually wrote itself within a few hours. I don't get it.


Title: Misery
Author: Donna Immaculata
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Yes. Quite. Blood and non-con, for once, and elements of horror. General unpleasantness.
Summary: Remus tries to forget.
Notes: Written for the It's All Been Done Fic Fest for the pairing Lupin/OFC and the scenario "Character A has a life-changing accident, and Character B helps."
I cheated. The accident as such is not life-changing. It's rather the circumstances that are.
And: How can I make LJ accept letters of the Polish alphabet? I'd be ever so grateful for any tips.

This OFC is not a Mary Sue. )
I more or less finished my Remus/Bellatrix fic. It is un-beta'ed and untitled, and I'm open to suggestions regarding both.

Pairing:Remus/Bellatrix
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: blood, bondage, non-con, het, character death (sort of), necromancy, dubious contents, mentions of voyeurism
Summary: Bellatrix becomes part of a ritual supposed to bring back Sirius Black

My second (and last) Squickfest submission is up, and it's Mary Sue/Ron's feet.

No graphic sex this time, nor too much graphic foot action, but it's got Mary Sue in all her glory, including name, hair, past, powers, and... a Dark Secret. Extra bonus: author's notes in the text and pop song lyrics.

And Ron's feet.

Come on, you know you want to.
Had a truly terrible day today, the result of which is that I'm not flying to England after all tomorrow. To cheer self up, I'm posting the second part of my Minerva/Remus fic )

And now if you please excuse me, I'm going to bed to indulge in self-pity.
The way I spent last weekend might be a good hint as to what my priorities are: In spite of all this important work awaiting me on my desk (and my computer), I drove 350 kilometers to get to a party on Saturday and drove all the way back home on Sunday, where I decided that I was too tired to do anything in the evening, anyway, and postponed it until today. Now there are still things left to be finished before I'll leave for England on Thursday. Tedious, annoying things such as writing three pages of company profiles for work, starting working on the film reviews and actor profiles for the other work, filling in boring forms for the tax office (who's been perstering me for ages now, because apparently I always get things wrong), and preparing for an important meeting on Wednesday. But seeing as I've got my priorities right, I will instead:

a) add LJ users to my list of friends (so if you suddenly find yourself on the list, it's most likely because I enjoy your HP slash)

b) start editing my Snape/Black fic

c) sketch an outline for my Tonks/Ginny fic and my Buckbeak/Padfoot fic (the latter one started me worrying about my sanity, but still, I feel compelled to write it)

d) post my Remus/Minerva fic:


I couldn't resist bringing my favourite male and my favourite female character together, if only for a short while. From Poppy's PoV. Part I )
