This bit of comic porn was my entry for this year's Kinky Kristmas fest at [community profile] daily_deviant. The prompter was the kind-and-wildly-talented [personal profile] mywitch,who asked for "Snape, by himself (thinking about: Surprise Me!)," with the kinks/themes of "wanking, getting caught" and a mood of "humorous and dirty." Her prompt was "candy cane."

I immediately had this vision of Snape sprawled on his sofa, cane (and other things) in hand, and this fic is the result. No redeeming social value whatsover. Just a whole lotta wankin' goin' on.

I recently took part in a fun fest called [info]wand_in_a_knot. The premise is that a participant gets tagged and given a short prompt; you then have 24 hours to create and post a piece of porn featuring any characters you like.

I received my tag at about 10:30 on the morning of Sunday, May 15; by about 10:40 on Monday the 16, my porny threesome was posted and frolicking.

Is the fic any good? Well, about as good as you would expect for something written between 5:00 p.m. and 3:20 a.m! /g/

I confess that I've done a little tinkering since the initial post, but not much. What you see is what I wrote in ten hours or so. So yeah, it's a little OOC and a little rushed and a little. . .um, shall we say, implausible, but it was a blast to write. Hope you enjoy!

Reveals are up at [info]severus_snape, and here's my fic. I contributed to the "mini fest" portion of the fest, for stories of under 500 words. For my entry, I indulged my love of the drabble form for a (for me) fairly traditional take on the Severus/Minerva relationship -- it's old-school MMSS (to the extent that there is an "old school"), and I found it fun and comforting to write.

My thanks to [livejournal.com profile] therealsnape for her always-expert beta services and to [livejournal.com profile] akatnamedeaster for running this excellent fest.

Reveals are up at [info]mini_fest, and my contribution was a short Minerva/Severus Christmas story.

[info]mini_fest was one of the very first holiday fests I participated in, back in 2009, and I thought I'd like to be part of it again this year. My 2009 fic, Not a Present featured Severus, Minerva friendship (of sorts), so it seemed fitting to return to them.

Back in October, I participated in [info]hp_concrit_fest, a fun and useful fest in which participants pledged to provide -- you guessed it -- concrit.

Reveals have gone up at Remix Redux 2015 and Remix Madness 2015, and now I can lay claim to the following fics:

1. My official "Remix Redux" was a Star Trek: Voyager story for Miri Cleo, a writer new to me whose fic list offered a wonderful cornucopia of stories featuring Captain Janeway. I debated between remixing her fine, angsty Janeway/Crusher story, To Uncreate a Memory, but finally I couldn't resist lure of returning to one of my favorite VOY pairings, Janeway/Seven. Cleo's story is from Janeway's pov; my remix offers Seven's view. The result:

Penchant (The "Poetry" Remix) (Janeway/Seven; PG; ~1500 words). (With many thanks to my fine beta-reader and VOY friend of old, [livejournal.com profile] aabbey)

Here's Cleo's original: Poetry (Janeway/Seven; PG; ~600 words)

2. For Remix Madness, I did a very short remix of an atmospheric little piece by [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2. Her's is from SS's pov; mine is from MM's.

The Taking of a Toast and Tea (the "Rest for the Weary" Remix) (Minerva/Severus; G; 318 words)

I think of it as taking place in the "Adela" universe (stories here and here), but you don't need to have read either of those stories to enjoy the remix.

Here is AstroGirl's original: Rest for the Weary (Minerva/Severus; G; 330 words).

I was lucky enough to receive two excellent Remix gifts; I can now reveal their authors:

Older and Wiser (Wilhelmina/Irma) was written by Epikoinos.

Like Nobody's Watching (Janeway/Paris) was written by Syrena of the Lake.

Both of these writers are new to me. I'm off now to read everything they have written!

If you get a chance, check out all the HP remixes at Redux and Madness -- fun reads all.

Back in the fall, I took part in a fascinating fest, [info]hp_concrit_fest, in which participants were required both to leave and accept detailed concrit. It was an exciting experiment, and I learned a great deal from people's thorough, kind, and helpful responses to my entry.

In particular, I realized that I have become a bit lazy in my characterizations. Since I normally write for people who already like and are very familiar with my favorite characters and pairings, I think I've begun to take a few shortcuts in providing sufficient explanation and background for relationships. Many of the [info]hp_concrit_fest participants wrote primarily H/D or Severus slash; most of them had little experience outside canon with older women characters and/or with Minerva/Severus. Thus they needed much more justification and development of a Minerva/Severus relationship than I am accustomed to providing for fellow Snagonagall fen.

Of course, maybe it's not "laziness" as such; maybe it's just the nature of writing fanfic in a particular subset of a canon universe. In a long-established fandom like HP, we have many well-developed "sub-canons," if you will, that have branched off from the original canon. Thus even if you know the original canon well, coming fresh into a sub-canon can be difficult, like entering an already-established society for which you have to learn the rules. I found myself in a similar situation when reading H/D fics for the fest: since I've read very little H/D, and since I don't have a pre-existing belief in the pairing, I need more preparation (than H/D fans would) before I can enter into the spirit of it.

Anyway, what I'd like to do here is to post my story mostly as originally written. Then, at the end, I'll ask you some questions based on the concrit I received. I'd love to hear your thoughts about possible revisions.

My Questions )
kelly_chambliss: (CDO)
As some of you already know, I tend to hang around on the OCD spectrum, for better (often) and worse (sometimes). I spend a lot of time putting things in order and making lists and plans and FINISHING ALL THE THINGS, because I HAVE TO FINISH ALL THE THINGS, DAMMIT! I'm a completist, what can I say?

One of the things I felt compelled to finish this year was [community profile] trope_bingo, Round 3.

The premise of [community profile] trope_bingo is that you receive a bingo card listing a random assortment of common fanfic tropes. Your goal is to make a bingo by writing fics (or doing art, vids, fanmixes, etc.) featuring the tropes in a given line. Any fandom is fine. While creating one or several bingos is the ideal, you can qualify for each annual round just by filling one single square on the card during the calendar year of the fest.

I signed up for a 2014 card last January because it sounded like fun. But between RL and fandom commitments and my general laziness and procrastination, I didn't manage anything close to a bingo. In fact, I didn't manage to write a single [community profile] trope_bingo fic.

But as I say, I'm a completist, and my failure weighed on me. I kept intending to dash off at least one fic before the year ended, but being the procrastinator that I am (it's a veritable art form with me), I put it off and didn't manage to start writing until 6:00 p.m. on New Year's Eve. Still, I thought, six hours should be plenty of time.

Except that I didn't really have six hours, what with Uncle coming for tea and then our NYE plans for Peking Duck.

Thus I actually had about two and a half hours to write. Okay, maybe just two, if you subtract time spent sipping a little restorative. But I pulled something together nonetheless, using the tropes of "bets/wagers" and "kidfic." To me, these options immediately said "Snape and McGonagall." I managed to post the thing with ten minutes to spare before the big ball dropped in Times Square.

So I've actually qualified for the next round of Trope Bingo! I'm not even sure I'll try the next round (since I had such spectacular success with this one /g/), but I like to keep my options open. Plus, um. . .completist. Yeah.

Anyway, if you think you'll enjoy a piece of implausible Snape!fluff written in two hours, then read on!

This story was my entry in the recent [info]hp_silencio fest, in which the premise is to write a story with no dialogue. It was quite an interesting challenge that I enjoyed. It's not enough just to have characters who don't speak; you have to invent a scenario where lack of speech makes thematic and narrative sense.

Luckily, I had a great prompt from [livejournal.com profile] teddyradiator (thanks, Teddy!). She asked for a story in which Filius and Minerva keep vigil over Severus’ body the night he is killed in battle. Both remember the boy they taught, and the man he became. And she said she'd give bonus points for background MM/SS! Who could resist? Certainly not I.

Initially, I intended to tell the story from both Filius's and Minerva's POVs, as Teddy had requested. But Minerva decided -- reasonably, given the theme of the fest -- that she had nothing to say. So I focused on Filius instead, and I think the fic works better this way.

This story is a remix of an excellent fic by [livejournal.com profile] lunabee34 called Conversations With the Dead. It's short -- 600 words -- but it made a real impression on me, especially the last line. The original is told from Draco's pov; my remix is from Severus's.

I made it to the third round (eight participants left) of [livejournal.com profile] hp_humpdrabbles! I thank everyone kind enough to vote for my drabble. I'm quite surprised that a Minerva/Severus pairing won (and Severus/Lucius bondage the week before), since the name of the game in this fest seems to be (mostly) kink-free Trio-Era het. (Also, as I read my drabble again, at the distance of about a week since I composed it, I think it's a bit too choppy/disconnected. Still, I had fun with it; MMSS is always a pleasure.)

The competition is getting even more fierce -- my opponent next week is the always-excellent [livejournal.com profile] luvscharlie -- so my chances of reaching the Final Four may be a little better than a snowball's chance in you-know-where, but not much!

Anyway, here's the drabble:

This story was my entry in the 2013 [info]hoggywartyxmas fest, one of the best HP fests going. My recipient was [personal profile] dueltastic, who writes some of my very favorite Minerva/Severus fics and who asked for a Minerva/Aberforth/Severus threesome. I started out to write that story, but Minerva simply refused to participate. Still, I think I ended up with a threesome of sorts, anyway -- just a little different from the norm.

I normally write an older Severus, one who is in his mid-thirties, a man who has had time for some seasoning and experience. In this story, though, he's very young, only 22, and I really enjoyed writing him as a bitter, cynical, paranoid, naive, and yet (to me, anyway) oddly sympathetic boy. I still felt like putting him in a full body-bind, though; he's very exasperating. (In an endearing way, as long as I only have to write him and not live with him /g/).

I also enjoyed writing Aberforth. During my first few years in HP fandom, I gave him little thought. But in the last year or so, he's grown on me. This is my third Aberforth story, and while I fear I'm making him a bit too lovable (albeit gruffly so), I'm enjoying his company.

Many, many thanks to the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] therealsnape, beta-reader extraordinaire and a fest mod whose price is beyond rubies (or any other precious thing you care to name).

Many of you know that when it comes to making visual art, I am the most total and terminal of the totally and terminally inept.

So of course, I decided to create an art work for my April [info]daily_deviant entry.

One of the kinks this month was (basically) "clown sex." Who could resist a prompt like that? Not I, certainly. And it just cries out for something visual.

But damn -- a visual artist, I ain't.

My partner, however, is.

And she loves me (or did before this).

So she agreed to help me create the following, um, piece of "art." The deviant idea is all mine. The Photoshop skills are hers.

Poor thing, she doesn't even like HP.

Open it. I triple-dog dare you.

This story was my entry in last summer's [info]reversathon.

This story was my entry in the 2012 [info]dysfuncentine, an anti-Valentine's Day fest on LiveJournal. The writing prompt I selected was this one: "Every couple has their version of what they call the truth."

You'll find a more self-doubting Minerva than I usually write, but I think canon leaves space for an interpretation of her as isolated and uncertain (not professionally, but personally). And a self-hating Severus also seems plausible. I wanted to explore what sort of relationship these damaged people might have.
