A great article about a thought-provoking project:

https://fanslashfic.com/2017/01/11/harry-potter-and-the-sacred-text/

I really loved the last paragraph:

One of my favourite things about the Harry Potter series is how deeply it deals with the big questions of human experience. Does love really triumph over hate in the end? Is there such thing as a selfless act? Is it ethical to act for the Greater Good? Harry Potter and the Sacred Text explores these questions and helps us re-read our favourite books in a completely new way. And, for that, I give them my blessing.

Title: Changing of the Winds
Author: [info]winoniel 
Pairing: Harry/OM, Severus/Harry (eventual)
Rating: NC-17
Warning(s): Underage sex, slash sex
Disclaimer: This story is all mine, but is based on characters and situations created and owned by JK Rowling. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.
Summary: Someone outside of the wizarding world gives Harry not only a reason to live, but to live well. Independent!Harry, powerful!Harry, no HBP or DH, though some mild spoilers from those books.
Author’s Notes: This is a story I’d been posting on FF.net. With the possibility looming that it (or my account) may be deleted due to the slash, I am posting it here as well. The early chapters are PG-13, but the rating above is for sex in chapters

The Weirdo

Crackfic, Mpreg, and all the other oddities. (Yeah! Bring it on!)

You are pretty weird. It's hard to put you in a box. On one hand, you might lean towards the bizarre subgenres; recklessly slash people with inanimate objects (yummmmmmm!), create alternative universes where Harry Potter is a 7 years old girl named Annie and don't take fanfiction very serious. On the other hand, you might be a misunderstood genius that could write Tolkien, Roddenberry and Rice into the ground, and your ideas are simply totally ahead of their time.

However, the chances you're the latter are rather small. (Ouch....)


Take the Test!

in two days! I'm participating in WriSoMiFu this month. I'd really wanted to try NaNoWriMo, but knew that I'd crap out after a few days. But even I can handle 10 minutes of writing a day. Just knowing that only 10 minutes are required is enough to fire up the laptop and actually open Word. After that, I usually type until something interrupts. It's really like going to the gym: the hardest part is just putting on your sneakers. After that, you're essentially coasting through remembered moves.......

So, I'm working on my FF.net Snarry (Changing of the Winds) that I'd started back in the summer. I want to get four or five more chapters written and edited before I resume the posting I'd halted to finish my [info]snarry_holidays submission. Speaking of which, go there--they've begun posting, and so far, the works are incredible (and please, review if possible!). I adore well-written/drawn, challenging stories and art (OK, I love porn, but porn with thoughtful, thought-provoking plot is even better!), and last year, Snarry Holidays became associated with such work in my mind. I'm so excited that I participated this year. Posting goes through the month of November. See if you can guess which one is mine!

Just finished final edits on my [info]snarry_holidays story!!!! Now I can go back to doing the work for which I actually get paid!

Three questions:

1. Have any of you ever done NaNoWriMo? I was thinking of giving it a shot next month. Love to hear anyone's experiences on it.

2. Is anyone else having problems with the Rich text mode when posting on their journals? When I try to use it, all I get on my screen is a narrow, white band where the posting window should be. I've had to go back to HTML screen, and trying to code my link above, discovered that I've grown quite lazy.....

3. I'd like to hear from folks about their beta experiences. Do you have someone regular, are there types of writing (slash, comes immediately to mind) that they won't read, etc? I ask because I lost my sometime beta because his SO found my snarry piece, and immediately saw that it was slash (though there were only a couple of scenes buried somewhere around page 26 of 52--she had to have been fully reading the beast!) so he's not in the picture right now (now that I've finally gotten him to beta my slash scenes, sigh.....) Anyway, what is the best way to find a beta?

I just wanted to point folks to a boo-tiful drawble drawn by twilightsorcery for my birthday. It's the "Look at me!" scene from DH, and I'm tickled pink with delight, particularly since she was squeezing it in between her work on her magnificent Snarry Games pic and being sick!

thanks, girl!

I would like to just post a rec for [info]drachenmina's story Her Eyes on HPFandom. 

It is another Severus saves Harry Snarry fic, with a delightful twist on the genre.  While I would have liked to see it deal a bit more with
Harry's reactions to his ordeal, I was entranced by the high quality of the writing, the interactions between the boys, and the snarky dialogue.  Snape is firmly ensconced in the muggle world, with television, a CD player, and pub buddies.  One thing the author does well is one of my squees(!):  her version of Harry is a really enjoyable example of the clueless-but-savvy-when-it-counts Harry Potter!!!!!!

There were tons of hysterical moments, but the following give you an example of the high level of delicious snark: 

“Do you think pirates used to fancy each other?”

“That, Potter, is quite possibly the most naïve thing you have ever said. You have a group of men whose morals are even looser than that of the populace at large, out at sea for months on end, sleeping in many cases three to a bunk - ”

“Oh. So you reckon they were all shagging each other blind, then? Well, I s’pose that’d explain why they all had eye-patches.”


Hope you read, and enjoy!
