My gift has been posted at [community profile] hoggywartyxmas, and what a fine gift it is! Wonderful Snape-centric gen, with expertly-characterized cameos by virtually all of my favorite staff members and Trio-Era characters. The superb cast includes. . .Hagrid, Flitwick, Sprout, Irma Pince, Argus Filch (and Mrs Norris), Poppy Pomfrey, Slughorn, Neville, Millicent Bulstrode, Hermione, Harry. And the whole is bookended by -- who else? -- McGonagall. Each vignette is told in perfect character voice, and the consciousness of Snape weaves around and unifies all. Go read; it's a treat.

Over the years, I have been privileged to receive some of the most exceptional fest gifts ever: stories and poems and art that are thoughtful, funny, moving, beautifully written/drawn, expertly characterized, and on and on. I return to these treasures time and again, savoring the craft, relishing the chance to inhabit the well-constructed world of my favorite characters

This year, the streak continues. My gift at Daily Deviant's Kinky Kristmas fest is a little masterpiece, and it hits several of my bullet-proof kinks. BOOK FIC! WORDSMITHING! EROTOGRAPHOMANIA! And it's intelligently-written Minerva/Hermione (no underage or teacher/student, either, just as I'd asked).

Seriously, I am in love with this piece. The skill of the writer, the delicacy of the style, the precision of the word choice. Outstanding.

If you love good writing and/or good book!fic and/or good femmeslash and/or good old-lady-fic, then don't dally another second. Hie thee over to Daily Deviant and read

Title: Nine Ways of Looking at a Book**
Author: Anonymous for now, but I can't wait to meet them.
Pairing: Minerva/Hermione
Rating: R
Author's Summary: : Hermione has come back to Hogwarts to teach history. She finds herself looking to the future, too.

(**Yes, it's based on one of my favorite poems -- "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird." I made use of this poem/premise for one of my own fics, too, and I love what this author has done with it.)

I have finally finished my overdue [info]hoggywartyxmas fic and sent it off to the long-suffering mod.

So now I have a few free minutes to share with you some wonderful fannish treats. Lookee here:

1. Did I mention [info]hoggywartyxmas? One of my very favorite fests, and I'm just so grateful that it's running again, especially in this horrifying year. I need it, big time.

2. The fest fun has already started at

art by [profile] akatnamedeaster

All sorts of good stuff there, with the usual intriguing range of pairings and kinks.

3. PRESENTS FOR ME!! Two of my incredibly talented friends, [ profile] writcraft and [ profile] mywitch, have been kind enough to create gifts for me, and such is the joy of fandom that they can be your gifts, too. Seriously, if you like good writing and good art and good femmeslash, don't miss these:

From the Night Into the Morning by [ profile] writcraft

An evocative, thoughtful Minerva/Wilhelmina ficlet that stayed with me long after I read it. I gave Writ the prompt "Mood: Indigo," and she absolutely nailed it. This is "indigo" put into words.

McGonaHooch by [ profile] mywitch

A gorgeous, detailed black-and-white line drawing of McGonagall and Hooch sharing some holiday cheer. Mywitch manages to make them both smoking hot and almost demure at the same time. So much of what I love about these characters is packed into this delightful drawing.

While you're over at Writ's and Mywitch's LJs, check out their other holiday offerings. Both of them have generously offered to write and draw holiday gifts for their flists, and each day brings new delights. I have yet to see the pairing that Writ cannot write, and ditto Mywitch and her many artistic styles. You'll find an hilarious Winky/Dobby (seriously!) in comic-book style; a festive and hot Severus/Kingsley; a lovely 1920s version of Severus/Hermione, and more.

4. For a good, strong dose of holiday cheer, don't miss [info]mini_fest.

The fest opener is a total winner: Warm Christmas Magic, featuring a beautifully-drawn Minerva. Be prepared for a craving to develop once you've drunk in this delicious art.

As many of you have heard, the lovely [ profile] lokifan has started a "love meme." Wow, do we all need it.

When I woke at 6:00 this morning in my now-usual panic, I didn't just lie there fretting; I checked my flist and found the meme and started leaving some love. And by the time I finished, I was much calmer. No, a love meme is not going to save the world. But it may very well save me for yet one more day. Thank you, Loki! And thank you to all you marvelous people who left me notes.

Click on the banner to get to the meme. And check for your name! Here are all the flisties I've noticed:

One of my favorite HP fests is [community profile] hp_halloween. Participants write 200-word Halloween-themed drabbles that are all posted on -- you guessed it -- October 31.

This year, there were about 60 entries ranging from gen to standard pairings like Harry/Draco to the rarest of rarepairs, like a fascinating Dudley/Pansy. Femmeslash, het, and slash were all well-represented, and the "old ladies" had a good night overall. Minerva showed up eight times.

I wrote. . .

For my friend [personal profile] iselima, I wrote On Silent Haunches, featuring Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank/Minerva McGonagall. Many thanks to [personal profile] therealsnape for the fast and expert beta.

I received. . .

In return, I received a gift of fabulous old-lady femmeslash, beautifully written and characterized. Check out Yellow and Gold by [personal profile] sdkshelly. Minerva/Pomona.

Here are just a few of the entries I loved:

[personal profile] ravenclawsquill wrote A storm of amber leaves, a wonderfully atmospheric Pomoma/Hooch drabble. Great characters and imagery.

[personal profile] pauraque wrote a really inventive parallel character study called The Fall (Narcissa, Andromeda)

[personal profile] writcraft wrote a powerful, evocative piece featuring Severus/Sirius -- In the Arms of the Adoring Stars.

And check out [profile] vaysh's clever take on the future of the Resurrection Stone: Stone Meets Wand.

I could add many more, but you might as well just go and read all the fine entries for yourselves.

Take a look at these beautiful Harry Potter posters. They're pricey ($50 each), and they are available only through October 25, but they make me want to read the series all over again.

This pair of 150-word drabbles was written for the incomparable [ profile] writcraft. (Her clever friends [ profile] akatamedeaster and [ profile] amorette set up secret birthday comm for her last week.)

Title: Good Clean Troth
Author: [ profile] kellychambliss
Pairing: Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank/Rolanda Hooch
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 300
Summary: Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank didn't care for Quidditch.

One of my favorite Snape Fests is returning!

Snape Showcase
[info]snapecase: Celebrating Severus Snape throughout his ages!

I wrote one of my own favorite Snape fics for this fest back in (I think) 2011. (Is it horribly wrong to have favorites of your own fics? Is it like unthinkable parental disloyalty)

I would love to sign up, but I don't think I can make the timeline work. The due date is two days before [info]hoggywartyxmas, and I just don't think I can manage two major fics between now and early December. I still love HP, but my inspiration has slowed down considerably. Unlike the early days of my obsession, when I sometimes juggled seven and eight sign-ups at a time (as those of you who served as my handholders will recall), my mind is no longer bubbling with plot ideas and stories I'm driven to tell. Writing is much more of a struggle now (albeit one with a fun payoff).

So I may have to give this fest a pass as a writer, but I will certainly look forward to reading. Some totally amazing works have come out of [info]snapecase.

My thanks to everyone who participated in that "Ask Me Some Writing Questions" meme. I really enjoyed responding (which was sometimes harder than I'd expected!) I answered many of the questions on the original post, but I've added a few more, so I thought I just go ahead and repost the lot of them here.

You Got Questions? I Got Answers )
kelly_chambliss: (Default)
All the cool kids are doing this meme, so I want to do it, too.

Ask away, me hearties! Give me a number, I'll give you an answer.

1. How did you come up with the title to [insert fic]?
2. Any of your stories inspired by personal experience?
3. What character do you identify with most?
4. Is there a song or a playlist to associate with [insert fic]?
5. If you wrote a sequel to [insert fic], what would it be about?
6. Care to share a favorite hurt/comfort fic?
7. Care to share a favorite crack fic?
8. How would you describe your style?
9. Do you have a guilty pleasure in fic (reading or writing)?
10. Write or describe an alternative ending to [insert fic].
11. What's the angstiest idea you've ever come up with?
12. What's the weirdest AU you've ever come up with?
13. Got any premises on the back burner that you'd care to share?
14. Is there a fic you wish someone else would write (or finish) for you?
15. How do you begin a story--with the plot, or the characters?
16. Are you what George R. R. Martin would call an "architect" or a "gardener"? (How much do you
plan in advance, versus letting the story unfold as you go?)
17. Do you have any discarded scenes/storylines/projects?
18. Are there any writers (fanfic or otherwise) you consider an influence?
19. Any fandom tropes you can't resist?
20. Any fandom tropes you can't stand?
21. A pairing you might like to write for, but haven't tried yet.
22. A secondary (or underrated) character you want to see more of in fic?
23. Do you like more general prompts, or more specific ones?
24. A character you enjoy making suffer.
25. A character you want to protect.
26. Major character death--do you ever write/read it? Is there a character whose death you can't tolerate?

Wow, once school starts, I get pulled into a black hole of time sucks -- classes, prep, meetings, meetings, meetings -- that leave me with no time to do the real work of life, namely, pursue my hobbies. It's been weeks since I posted.

But I have clawed my way (temporarily) out of that black hole in order to bring you some fun fandom news.

First and most wildly-exciting: Sign-ups are open at [info]hoggywartyxmas! That's right -- one of the only older-character* fests still active in HP, and it's going to run again this year. It's always one of the total highlights of my holiday season (not just in fandom terms, but in general. Sign-ups are limited to 30 participants, but there are still a few slots open. (*Note -- young characters can find a place to play there, too.) Some of my favorite HP writers and artists will be taking part; you could be one of them. What are you waiting for?

And guess what else will be running again? If you said, [info]hp_halloween, you're right! I love this quick, low-pressure fest; it's how I've spent my Halloweens for at least the last five years. You have to write only a 200-word drabble, and you get one in return. Everything is posted on Halloween day/night. All characters, pairings, and ratings welcome. I've written my usuals, of course -- Minerva, Severus, Minerva/Severus, Minerva/Rolanda -- and I've also enjoyed the chance to work outside my typical characters: I've written Bellatrix, the Grey Lady, Luna, Neville/Hannah, Septima Vector. Great fun. Sign-ups haven't started yet, but I'm looking forward to them.

Then there's the holiday-themed [info]mini_fest, which I have a soft spot for, since a) it was one of the first few fests I did in the fandom, and b) several very nice fics have been written there either for me or to my prompts. You can write very short pieces, so no pressure. I'm going to try to do something for it again this year.

And claiming is still open at [info]sirius_black. I was siriusly (haha -- see what I did there?) tempted by a couple of the prompts, but I had to resist (I have a bad habit of over-extending myself in fests during school time).

Finally, here's a rec for you from [info]severosmerta, a new fest that's a lot of fun. I've "caught up" (not!) only to the first day of posting, but that first story is a winner:

A Bit of All Right by Anonymous (Severus/Rosmerta)

A well-written take on the "sexy-mother Rosmerta" trope, with a great drunken, callow young Severus.

Other news -- I got my copy of Cursed Child, though I haven't had a chance to open it yet. I'm neutral about it: good or bad, I don't think it will have too much effect on my overall feelings toward HP. So bring it on, JKR. (These may be famous last words, of course. For all I know, I'll be ranting and raging like mad once I've read it.)

Except when I don't, of course. But lookee . . .

NASA Puts Its Research Online -- Free.

Remember that commercial with the actor who said, "I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV?" Well, I'm not a scientist, but I don't have to play at being interested in it. True, my understanding will probably be w-a-a-a-y below the level of most of these articles, but still.

Thanks, NASA!

I swear, I should have been buying lottery tickets galore this month, because I am having a really lucky time.

How, you ask? Lovely writers are gifting me with lovely fic, that's how! I've already posted about the delicious Millicent/Wilhelmina story written to one of my prompts at [info]hp_crossgenfest. An then this weekend, I was staggered to see that a wonderful someone has filled yet another of my prompts:

An Unexpected Match by Anonymous (Minerva/Hermione).

Rush over and read it. As many of you know, I have reservations about this pairing, so it might seem odd to you that I requested it at all. But I really enjoy seeing how different writers approach the difficulty of making this romance seem both plausible and appealing. I'm pleased to say that this Mystery Author has struck just the right tone of restraint and directness.

I'm really stunned to see TWO older-woman stories at this fest. Stunned and thrilled.

Remember back in May, when I waxed rhapsodic about how some lovely, brilliant person had claimed my Millicent Bulstrode/Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank prompt at [info]hp_crossgenfest?

Well, that lovely, brilliant person has actually written the fic, and what a doozie it is. Millicent and Wilhelmina are at their butchy best as devoted healers of magical creatures at "Kettleburn Memorial" (and isn't that the most perfect choice of names?) The Mystery Author builds a full and nuanced world; I loved all the details of the hospital and the patients and the dedicated healers. You'll find great OCs, fun cameos from the HP cast, and best of all, a lot of well-done Millicent and Wilhelmina.

Be sure to treat yourself to some delightful butch-on-butch cross-gen romance:

Be Better by Anonymous (Millicent Bulstrode/Wilhelmina Grubby-Plank; PG-13)

Femme Fic!

Remember the days when I used to sign up for 8-10 HP fests at a time and then wail about how much I had to write? Well, I'm a lot more restrained about my sign-ups these days**, picking only those that really intrigue me or that offer new and interesting challenges.

The intriguing fest I chose for this summer was [community profile] femmeremix. I'm always excited by ways to highlight and celebrate stories about women, whether gen or romantic, and this multi-fandom fest seemed just the ticket. Plus, I love remixing and being remixed; as I've said before, a remix is basically a fanfic of your fanfic. It's like being JKR, except without the billions.

Anyway, [community profile] femmeremix went live last weekend, and there are over three dozen women-centered stories to tempt you, including some excellent HP old-lady stories plus MY WONDERFUL GIFT! If you like thoughtful, well-written fics that explore the lives and psyches of older women, you'll love all of these.

Sadder and Wiser by Anonymous (Minerva; past Minerva/Poppy)

This story is based on Behind Layers by [ profile] redsnake05 (which was one of the first OLSB stories I found during my early days in the fandom). The original looks at young Minerva and Poppy doing war work in the 1940s. The meditative, nicely bittersweet remix looks at the aftermath of their war work against Voldemort. The ending is just perfectly Minerva.

Perennial by Anonymous (Augusta, Neville)

This fic is a wonderful example of the pleasures and powers of remixing. It's based on a well-done drabble, Annuals, by [ profile] miramiraficfic. To continue the gardening theme of both fics, if you think of the original drabble as a lovely, tight rosebud, the remix is the gentle yet pungent unfolding of the entire flower, ending with age, with the suggestion of petals about to drop, yet still beautiful. I love the characterizations here, the atmospheric details.

And finally, there's my gift, a real stunner that celebrates some of my favorite things: women, women's communities, a wide spectrum of gender presentation and of understandings of what "woman" is.

Well-Suited by Anonymous (Griselda, Rolanda, Wilhelmina, Millicent, Gabrielle Delacour, OFC)

I just love what my author has done with Bespoke, a story of mine that features butch Wilhelmina serving as mentor to baby-butch Millicent Bulstrode. Picking up on the notion of gendered mentoring, the new story offers a wonderful history of female community and tradition. . .plus a sensual romp through the tactile and visual delights of fabric and color. Each section focuses on a different, well-created character to give us a satisfying panorama of lived gender experience.

You're in for a treat with all of these stories. I hope you'll read and comment (especially since comments are rather thin on the ground in this fest so far).

**Yes, I am more restrained about the number of fests I undertake, but I still wail and whine and procrastinate. Surely that's part of the fun?

I am back in New York after a whirlwind and fun trip to Leviosa in Las Vegas. As always with HP events, the best part was meeting old and new friends. The second-best part was hearing fascinating HP panels and enjoying the vendors' rooms.

Worst part -- well, actually, it was mostly a smooth and pleasant trip, so there was no real "worst." But. . .I don't actually like Las Vegas, I never really understand the casino games, and my eyes and throat only just now recovering from the fact that the casino (which was very close to the open-plan cafe and the conference area) allows unrestricted indoor smoking. (I hadn't realized this; so many public spaces in the US are smoke-free that I honestly didn't know that in some places, you can still find yourself engulfed in inescapable cigarette smoke. Allergic much?)

But those negatives were pretty minor. Here are just a few of the good things:

Wonderful People I Met in Person for the First Time

Wonderful People I've Met in Person Before and Got to Reconnect With

[ profile] akatnamedeaster
[ profile] drinkingcocoa
[ profile] vaysh

*waves some more*

If I've left you off, my apologies!

I had to take my introverted, shy self in hand and risk barging up to people and saying, "excuse me, but are you . . ?" Actually, it wasn't much of a risk, because everyone was very kind and welcoming. (Thank you so much! I felt so at home with you all.)

I sat with Alisanne, Dementor Delta, and Lilyeyes at the Welcoming Feast and spent the costume ball with Mywitch, Kat, and Teddy, where we were eventually joined by Vaysh, Writ, and Amorette. I wore my full McGonagall drag and had a blast. (Although my home-made costume was nothing compared to some of the glorious outfits of the real cos-players. Professional-level wigs, make-up, and dress brought us fantastic versions of Snape, Umbridge, Hagrid, McGonagall, the Grey Lady, Not-Actually-Headless Nick, and more. Dolores Umbridge -- in full pink character -- actually came to the talk that Writcraft and I gave.)

Then I crashed the lovely and hospitable Snarry Suite, where I was welcomed despite the fact that I have never written a word of Snarry (though I have certainly read a lot of excellent stuff). Interspersed with all this were drinks with Writ, drinks with Writ, Femme, Noeon, Amorette, drinks with Teddy, Kat, and Mywitch, late supper with same. (Writ and Kat, don't think I've forgotten that I owe you drinks! I'm looking forward to seeing again and buying my round.)

The hotel/convention center was huge and sprawling and comfortable and had a fairly subdued (by Vegas standards) old-California-mission-style decor. Since the temperatures hovered around 105 degrees F every day, I rarely ventured outside, but the pool area looked pretty. (Yeah, I know people say, "but it's the desert; it's dry heat." Maybe so, but 105 degrees is still pretty damned hot, dry or not. Better than 105 humid degrees, though, certainly).

My sole trip out happened courtesy of the delightful [ profile] aabbey, who's been my fine fandom friend for at least a dozen years now. *waves like mad* She had to be in Las Vegas for reasons unrelated to the con, so we had dinner together at the hotel, and then she proposed a drive along the Vegas Strip. It was a fun madhouse. The traffic was insane, but it's Vegas, so it was fine. It was great to catch up with you, dear.

I left early on the morning of the last con day, so I missed the final panels and the Leaving Feast, but I still managed to pack a huge amount of fun into my two-and-a-half days.

Oh, and swag. I got swag, namely -- two beautiful, full-color Snape art cards courtesy of Akatnamedeaster, fabulous "Snape Alphabet" buttons (all 26 of them!) from the generous Mywitch, and a copy of Drinking Cocoa's newly-published Snape book, which I can't wait to read. (And a promotional button, too.) Thank you, everyone!

I'll talk more about the panels and such in another post.

Just reeling after Brexit (though recent polls and rhetoric make the result less of a shock that it might have been a year ago). Of course, I'm speaking as a not-Brit who has only read about the debate/vote from afar, so on many levels, I don't really know what I'm talking about. (But when does that ever stop people from talking? /g/)

Still, when answering the inevitable "qui bono?" I think it's safe to say that the "ordinary people" are not going to be the ones who benefit from this change. If anyone does benefit, it will be the very "elites" who were partly the target of LEAVE anger -- the rich, the corporations, the top-level politicians (probably mostly on the right, but some on the left, too). The Law of Unintended Consequences is going be passed big-time, and I can only hope that the average UK resident is not left significantly worse off than they are now (though I'm skeptical. "Ordinary" folks are rarely the winners, or even just not the big losers, in this sort of fraught, complicated change).

I can't help but relate this process to the current situation in the US (and a lot of so-called "developed" countries) -- all over, we're seeing this "populist," often racist/nativist surge of fury and fear that is threatening economic and social stability everywhere.

I find these movements terrifying and people like Trump and many other leaders beyond reprehensible, but it's a huge mistake (as we just saw in the UK and as is also true in the US) to just dismiss Trump supporters and LEAVE voters as "racist idiots" or "morons" who are too stupid to see their own interests or as "haters" who are somehow constitutionally and unavoidably "gonna hate" no matter what. When millions of people are saying, "we're mad as hell, and we're not going to take it anymore," we all need at least to listen.

No matter what the issue, politics or whatever, and no matter what side we're on, it's easy to demonize and/or ridicule our opposition, to cast them as obviously evil or stupid or both. But the reality is always much more complicated and human.

In the case of the US (and I'm sure the UK, too, though I don't know enough to say definitively), the "populist" anger is often legitimate. I'm angry, too. What's false are the targets of that anger.

We've allowed the rich and the corporations to define what it is we should be angry about, and surprise! it isn't them. To listen to the power elite, none of our current problems is due to income inequality or to the power structures that encourage and sustain and drive that inequality.

No, you didn't lose your job and your house because the system is gamed so that the rich and powerful get richer and more powerful and so that people like you get less and less. You lost it because of the Chinese people or the Mexican people or the Polish people or the Indian people or the Syrian people or the Muslims or the narrow-minded Christians or the liberals or the right-wingers or the people on food stamps or the femi-nazis or the gays or the atheists or the angry black folk or the "stupid" white working class. The outsized influence of special business interests? The rampant corporate expansion and corporate "welfare"? The dangerous corporatization of every important social institution? The constant, unchecked redistribution of wealth into the hands of a miniscule privileged few? The number of your elected officials who continue to support and increase these unjust systems? Nah, don't be silly! These had nothing to do with it! All that is done with your best interests in mind. Trust us! After all, we're clearly winners, right?

This pattern is exactly why I supported Bernie Sanders -- no, I wasn't naive enough to think that he would be able to accomplish all he promised. No, I didn't agree with his every proposal. But he was the first person in a long time to challenge the structures and the systems and the uncritical assumptions that have allowed things to get to the sorry state they are in now. Nothing will change overnight, but maybe now some improvement is possible. (If the US can only keep the Donald out of the White House and make a dent in the gridlock that is Congress.)

So -- angry much? You bet.

ETA: I'm not saying that I don't think Trump supporters are dangerously wrong, because I do. Nor am I saying that racism, xenophobia, religious intolerance, nativism, sexism, etc. are not serious problems in the US, because they are. But the serious economic injustices are getting lost in the fray, and they are arguably the most dangerous at the moment.

I've received a wonderful gift at [ profile] hp_podfic_fest.

[ profile] code_switch has read one of my Minerva gen stories -- Much Abides, which features Minerva, Severus, and Albus.

The podfic version captures just the feeling I wanted -- anxiety, mystery, some humor, some pathos. The opening and closing music is particularly effective. Thank you, [ profile] code_switch!

Listen to "Much Abides" here.
