Title: what rough beast, its hour come around at last
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair / Mistress Kat
Fandom: Harry Potter/Supernatural
Characters/Pairing: Lucius Malfoy, implied Dean Winchester/Sam Winchester
Rating: R for the implications but I’m probably overtly cautious as it’s all largely off screen
Word count: 3,048
Warnings: Features evil!Sam in the Death Eater camp, tread accordingly. All the nasty things tend to happen off screen though.
Disclaimer: Not mine, only playing

Summary: There are no prophesies about Sam Winchester.

Author notes: Written for ‘It’s So Easy Being Evil’ Summer 2013 Challenge at [livejournal.com profile] evilsam_spn. My prompt song was ‘It’s Not Over Yet’ from A Very Potter Sequel. This fic really doesn’t have much to do with the song itself, awesome as it is, except for the fusion concept. Note that I have taken liberties with the ages. While Sam Winchester’s D.O.B. (1983) actually makes him 3 years younger than Harry Potter (D.O.B. 1980), here the Winchesters are in their 20s around the time of Voldemort’s resurrection. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] margaret_r for a wonderful and speedy beta-read and to [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666 for brainstorming and handholding. The title and the line of poetry Lucius thinks of in the fic are from The Second Coming by W. B. Yeats.

Title: Manifold
Author: Mistress Kat / [livejournal.com profile] kat_lair
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 5,334
Warnings/enticements: Tentacles! Tentacles everywhere! 16-year-olds having sex with each other so I guess that counts as underage somewhere...
Disclaimer: Not mine, only playing

Summary: Harry learns that despite earlier appearances, he is not quite... human. This has some interesting consequences.

Author notes: Baby’s first HP and tentacle fic, all rolled into one big writhing, slippery ball of porn. This was originally supposed to be a little porny ficlet for my Porn Meme to indulge [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666’s unholy love of tentacles but alas I cannot do PWP so it developed a plot of sorts. Manifold thanks to [livejournal.com profile] margaret_r for a stellar beta and keeping count of the tentacles! Oh, and I would love some filthy fanart based on the story! A fic of choice for anyone who might be willing to indulge me!

It is hot, hot, hot today so I've been alternating between the garden and cool indoors. Cats are completely flaked out in the shade and so am I. The only other thing I've done today worth mentioning is eating ice-cream and writing some Harry/Draco tentacle porn except it's almost at 3k and they are only now getting to the porn. ETA: 3K AND THERE ARE NO TENTACLES IN ORIFICES YET, WTF SELF.

Don't think it will ready in time to make it meaningful to post there, but I'm just going to take this opportunity to remind everyone that the Porn Meme is still open for porny discussions and posts. Lots of awesome stuff there already so if you haven't checked it out yet, you should do yourself a favour and do it now. Click on the banner for porny goodness.

kat_lair: (SHERLOCK - sherlock)
This is the final day of vid recs for now, hope you've enjoyed them :)

***

Boom Boom Ba - Xena: Warrior Princess, Gabrielle/Xena. This is an older vid and one of my favourite Xena vids of all time. One of my favourite femslash vids too. It's sensual and seductive and just really damn sexy. There is such fluidity and burn to this. Reserve a cooling drink for viewing.

Cat's in the Cradle - House, Sherlock, Fortysomething. So, in Fortysomething  Benedict Cumberbatch played Hugh Laurie's son. Hugh Laurie then went on to play House, character based on Sherlock Holmes and  Benedict Cumberbatch of course went on to play Sherlock himself. The vidder has taken this connection and ran with it, creating a brilliant constructed reality vid where Sherlock is in fact House's son... The parallels are striking and the concept totally believable. I'm only waiting someone to write this fic now... Amazing vid.

Coin Operated Boy - Supernatural, meta. If you enjoy your meta clever and cutting, this is definitely for you. Highly ambitious vid in three parts that uses not just canon source, but also fandom works and a hired actress to the boot. Justifiably recced and awarded all over the damn place. Check it out now if you already haven't.

gonna be alright - Stargate Atlantis, John/Ronon. Mmm these boys sure like it rough. Guns and violence and oh my. A great vid that parallels John and Ronon and show their relationship in all its rough-edged, deep-seated, unspoken glory. Loved it.

Handlebars - Thor, Loki. This is fast becoming one of the most vidded songs in fandom, but it certainly suits Loki. The vid does a good job portraying his escalating megalomania and inevitable tragedy.

Hook Shot - Multi. Women kicking ass. That's pretty much it but it's more than enough: fast and hard-hitting, this is a great action vid.

Hurt - Sherlock, John/Sherlock. This delivers what the title promises. Sherlock will make you hurt. But maybe it's worth it. Angsty and heart-achy and gorgeous.

It's a Long Way Down - Supernatural. This video explores the theme of water as it is used in the show, as a saviour and an enemy. Creepy and effective, works beautifully as a black-and-white vid.

Little Lion Man - Harry Potter, Ron (Hermione/Ron). Oh Ron, you brave gorgeous boy man. This is a wonderful and insightful character study that really gets to the heart of Ron's character, both his strengths and insecurities, especially when it comes to Hermione. Great vid, great song choice too.

Marchin On - Star Trek Reboot, ensemble. Ah uplifting, USS Enterprise is full of BAMFs and they just keep marchin on, hell yeah! When is the next movie out again? This makes me yearn for more epic Trek adventures.

thistle & weeds - Lost, Jack/Sawyer. Aww man, back when I watched Lost this was totally my slash pairing of choice. The vid does a good job at capturing how Jack and Sawyer constantly fail to fully connect and understand each other due to neither of them being willing to show all their cards. They almost get there so many times and then it falls apart again; a tragedy of their own making. Lovely bittersweet vid.

kat_lair: (WHO - rory)
More vid recs for youuuuuuu! <3


Blue Caravan - Doctor Who, Amy/Doctor, Amy/Rory. Oh this one hurts in the best of ways, A gorgeous look at Amy and Amy's boys. The vid has a lovely unhurried pace with a kind of sinister undertone that creeps up on you. Beautiful.

Bye Bye Bye - The Social Network, Eduardo/Mark. Lol the song choice is highly appropriate and makes the vid both angsty and kind of hilarious. The editing is sharp and takes full advantage of the distnictive beat of the music.

Happy Now - Life on Mars (UK), Sam character study (with some Annie/Sam and Gene/Sam elements). A great synthesis of lyrics and clips, showing Sam's slide deeper into madness... or is it happiness? The vid does an excellent job at showing the thin line between the two.

Hindsight - Glee, Kurt/Blaine. This is a 35sec vidlet that completely captures the relationship between the boys. Great attention to detail and the heartbeat like bass track lends a breathless feeling of anticipation to this. Gorgeous, amazing editing.

Man on Lockdown - Merlin, Arthur character study. A powerful and sobering take on Arthur's character, focusing on his unwillingness to rebel in action the way he does in his heart. Will make you look at the show from a different, more critical angle; painful and challenging.

Marchin On - Harry Potter, ensemble. One of the best HP vids I've seen, perfectly captures what was always the best part about the series: friendship and love that endures and grows. Vid uses footage from all the films, showing the evolution of relationships. The focus is on the trip but the vid also lets the minor characters shine. Uplifting and epic in the true meaning of the word.

Take My Hand (Take My Whole Life Too) - Sherlock, John/Sherlock. Oh jesus christ, this is one of those vids where you start with 'aww lol the song' and 30 seconds later you're bawling your eyes out because 'oh god the songggggg and and johnandsherlockohmyheartttttttt'. Firstly, the song (Ingrid Michaelson's cover of 'Can't Help Falling In Love') is so unexpectedly heart-breaking in the context of this fandom that it works perfectly. Secondly, the vid makes wonderful use of colour (full, black and white, over-saturated, tinted...), overlaying of images and gaze (oh man the long glances are killing me). Gorgeous vid.

The Colonel - Stargate Atlantis, McKay & Sheppard. This is a great video looking at the relationship between the two men from and angle I haven't seen explored before in vid format: the reluctant almost unconscious hero worship that grows into a deep friendship. Great use of footage to tell a story, including a lot of rarer clips.

Something In The Wind - Merlin, unrequited Morgana/Arthur, Merlin/Arthur. An older Merlin vid, using only season 1 footage, this makes me actually buy and almost root for Morgana/Arthur. A beautiful and painful vid, which will strike a chord with anyone who's ever been in Morgana's position.

Your Biggest Fan - Supernatural, Sam/Dean (note that to d/l the vid you need to sign-up for 4shared but it's free and worth the few clicks). Oh goodness, this feels like one of those old school wincest vids about the epic love and devotion between the brothers that require everyone viewing to exclaim 'oh Dean!' every few seconds. Dean's endless propensity to sacrifice himself for his brother makes for some delicious angsty viewing. The overlaying of young Winchester with their older counterparts is done for the maximum effect and there's a real feeling of continuity here. The ending packs a punch as well, because... of course Sam would do the same.

Greetings!

My beloved Finngirls are meeting this weekend but due to being in the wrong country at the wrong time I cannot physically be there for fangirl shenanigans *sadface* One of the traditions of the fanmeets has always been watching fanvids together, so I thought I would contribute to the cause by timing my planned vid rec posts accordingly. So, prepare yourself for 4 days of vid recs! Links are a mix of LJ, AO3 and youtube, and vids are a mix of old and new.

***


Kat Recs All The Vids - Day 1

Disarm - Harry Potter, Draco character study (Draco/Harry). This is a gorgeous character study vid that draws some striking parallels between Draco and Harry, particularly in the context of family ties. There is something almost fragile about this vid, and the editing makes excellent use of symbolism.

High Voltage - Stargate (all shows), Ancients. Wow. I mean, wow, you always kind of knew that the Ancients weren't the benevolent gods they liked to play but this vid manages to condense just how scary and power-crazy they actually were. Great use of clips form all three Stargate series and the song choice does an excellent job at conveying the relentless drive for more, everything, now that the Ancients have.

If It Be Your Will - Lewis, Hathaway character study. In the interest of full disclosure I'll confess that this vid was made for me, from my prompt and song choice. However. However, it is about a hundred times more awesome than anything I pictured in my tiny head. Couple Leonard Cohen with Hathaway's struggle with his faith and you're left with something that hurts in all the best ways. The use of gaze and the matching of clips and lyrics is amazing, and the ending is the only possible ending a vid like this could have had.

Matches to Paper Dolls - The X Files, Scully/Mulder. Dana Scully, my hero. This is a wonderful character portrait, capturing Scully's strength and persistence as well as her relationship with Mulder, which was as destructive as it was powerful. The vid uses some unusual clips and that match between those and the lyrics is layered enough to surprise me even after several viewings.

Rolling in the Deep - X-Men Movie Series, Charles/Erik. When 'First Class' came out, everyone was all over this pairing. And yet, for me, it was the stellar (and sadly underused) performances of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen that really portrayed the painful and complicated relationship between them. This vid does an excellent job at showing the continuity and development of the two complex individuals and their relationship. Some excellent use of overlaying of images.

Take Me Home - Multi, femslash. Awesome ladies being awesome together. This is a great look at some of most intense female relationships on tv, with a nice dose of antagonism as well. The song choice gives me severe nostalgia.

The Glass - Multi, meta. I've seen this recced far and wide and deservedly so. This uses a powerful and beautifully carried visual metaphor of queer subtext, its representation in the media and how fandom breaks through it. This is some truly moving stuff right here. I was fine until it got to the Primeval clip (you'll know what I mean) and then I almost started bawling.

There! Right There! - X-Men: First Class, Charles/Erik. The most burning question at the X-Men mansion is whether Erik is gay or just... European? Oh godddddd, the crack is priceless, the song choice (from Legally Blonde the musical) exquisite, and the resulting hilarity may cause peeing in pants.

Tonight - McFly, Dougie/Harry. Right, firstly, you do not need to be in the fandom, know anything about the band or even like their music to enjoy this vid. Secondly, if you are even a little bit interested in watching power dynamics in action then run, don't walk, to watch this right now. The d/s vibe in this is amazing, all the wall pushing and restraining and bossing around... This is one of the best and sexiest rps vids I've seen, with great editing and song choice.

We Go Together - Multi, watersports! Yes, you read that right. This is a vid about watersports (and no, I'm not talking about surfing or sailing here...) and 'lo it is awesome and hilarious and even almost a little sexy at times. The sources are fantastic and the song choice too. Plus, dolphins! *cackles*

kat_lair: (SHERLOCK - sherlock)

British Actor/Comedian (QI) RPF

Deconstruction - Alan Davies/Stephen Fry. Yes, yes you did read that right. Okay, so their QI personas are very slashable and this is a short, rather clever, classy and subtle exploration of the potential relationship.


Glee

The Model Minority (Stereotype A) - Mike/Tina.
This is an excellent look at Mike and life with and beyond stereotypes. Written back before the show gave anything approaching backstory or characterisation to Mikey, this fic did it better thant what we eventually got.



Harry Potter

Souvenirs and Lost Luggage - pre-Petunia/OFC, Dudley/Piers.
One of the wonderful things about fanfic is how it can flesh out the minor characters canon ignores or caricatures. This is exactly what this story does to Petunia Dursley, or Petunia Evans as she is once more known after leaving Vernon. A wonderful and painfully human story about owning up to your mistakes and faults, and finding the strenght and courage to change.
 

Hawaii Five-0

How to Ruin Your Life in One Easy Step - Danny/Steve.
Jealousy + rimming = winning combination. Guh.

In These Arms - Danny/Steve. A sweet future fic in which drunken Grace tells Steve some home truths.

Play a Strong Hand - Danny/Steve, Jenna/Kono. This is a coda for the season 1 finale. Steve is in hiding while his team works to clear his name. Intriguing plot with great interactions between everyone.

Tooth and Clawl - Danny/Steve, AU. In which the whole team are supernatural creatures of some kind, keeping Hawaii's criminal vampire gangs under control. The detail to the science/mythos behind the various supernatural mutations is well thought out. I really enjoyed the world the author has created, though some warning about werewolf sex whilst actually in wolf form would have been appreciated...



How I Met Your Mother

A Series of Completely Unrelated Events - Barney/Ted.
I wish there was more fic for this pairing, I really do. Both character voices are spot on and everything feels like it almost could happen in the show...


Sherlock

The Theory Of Narrative Causality - John/Sherlock, AU.
Oh man, I do love fandom meta fics. In this Sherlock and John are BNFs in, erm, the Sherlock Holmes fandom. This is hilarious and oh so very true to reality of LJ fandoms.


Sherlock Holmes (2009 Movie)

Things on Fire, Things That Fall - Holmes/Watson.
A rather classic style and thorougly enjoyable case-fic with hurt-comfort and reveal of feelings.

A meme about icons, [livejournal.com profile] zellieh asked about these 5 of mine.



by [livejournal.com profile] puka_pudge

This is grouped under my kink icons and sits at the darker/harder end of the spectrum. I tend to use it on those rare occasions I post fic with darkwrongfilthyevil themes, discuss such things in general or am experiencing 'i will take you apart slowly and enjoy it' levels of rage/ubertoppiness :D



by [livejournal.com profile] hovercarracer

Ah Dr. Watson, peaceful until provoked indeed. I really love BBC's Sherlock and can't wait for the second series. Dr. Watson here also demonstrates my fondness for the 'it's the quiet once you need to watch out for' cliche as Dom/BAMF Watson is one of my favourite things. Unf.



by [livejournal.com profile] mortgraphics

A cat icon! It's necessary for me to have at least one cat icon at all times. The picture makes me smile because many of the cats I've had and known have done the exact same thing of drinking from a tap and looking supremely ridiculous whilst doing it.



by [livejournal.com profile] stormfronticons

Oh Lewis <3 My favourite small fandom at the moment and the one I'm actually actively involved in what with helping to [livejournal.com profile] lewis_challenge (posting soon! PIMP PIMP PIMP!). Beyond the Hathaway/Lewis otp'ness of this icon, I really like the saturated, slightly smudged colours.



by [livejournal.com profile] marty_moriarty

I've been on a bit of Harry Potter kick lately so recently uploaded some relevant icons. This is from one of my favourite scenes in Half-Blood Prince, where Draco breaks down in the bathroom right before his almost fatal confrontation with Harry. Apart for the obvious emotional impact of the scene, I loved the way the scene uses the mirror to show what is supposed to be private (a gimmick I'm hugely fond of anyway).



Feel free to comment if you want me to ask about 5 of your icons.

Welcome to Kat Recs All The Fics, Round 2 - another week wherein I post 10 fic recs per day in a variety of fandoms. And still somehow manage to make headway with my thesis. Trufax.

Enjoy.

***


American Idol

Save Tonight
- Adam/Kris, AU. Kris is a detective, Adam is a FBI-agent, they work together on an undercover operation that almost ends in tragedy. Oh my, this has lot of my favourite things including a genuinely tense 'oh god how will he get out of this?' situation. Bonus points for the GPS tracker location...

Starstruck - Adam/Kris, AU. This is amazing and deliciously long. Adam is a rock diva, Kris is his personal assistant. Told half in the present where Adam has disappeared and Kris is called back (after he resigned) to find him, and half as flashbacks charting their relationship, this is both hysterically funny and a wonderful lovestory. Look up rom-com in your fandom dictionary, and there's a link there to this fic. Go read now.



Harry Potter (yes, so I saw the film and now I basically want to read/re-read ALL the Draco/Harry in the world. Also umpteen fics about Neville kicking ass. Feel free to drop me recs of your own)

Cerulean Blue - Draco/Harry (also includes a sort-of-but-not-really Draco/Harry/Snape scene). I'm usually pretty iffy about amnesia fics, but this one managed to draw me in. Draco (now a Potions Master at Hogwarts) has a bit of an accident in the lab and loses the last four years of his life. It's up to Harry and Snape's portrait to sort him out... The magic in this was fascinating as was the trip through Draco's psyche.

Master Work
- Draco/Harry. Draco is determined to repay Harry for saving his life and so he pledges to 'protect and serve' him for ten months. At which point my whole face split into a giant shit-eating grin, because hello there my favourite kinks all wrapped in a sexy little package of power dynamics and dependence and sacrifice and mutual dislike morphing into something quite else. Happy sigh of contentment.

On a Clear Day - Draco/Harry. Draco works for the War Orphans Trust. Harry won't attend their annual Charity Gala. Steps must be taken. This was just delightful in every way; slow relationship development, plenty of UST, great OCs and boys helping each other to deal with their issues. Also includes one of the best drunken almost-sex scenes ever (no really, it was beautiful and left me aching, you'll see. But it was okay because the actual sex scene made everything all better. Guh.)



Hawaii Five-0

Ending one minute at a time - Danny/Steve. Boys are kidnapped and Steve is forced to go to some extremes to protect his partner. Guys, there's cagefighting! What more do you need? Okay, well, there's also an awesome h/c element and a realistic look at violence and effects of it.

Instinct
- Danny/Steve. Danny has a thing about tattoos. So does Steve. Funny that. Guh.

Sympathy for the werewolf - Danny/Steve, AU. Werewolf!fic but with a twist. I wanted a little more exploration of the government conspiracy plot but all in all this was an extremely entertaining read and interesting take on the myth. 

you in the sea - Danny/Steve. There's a sharp shooter killing people in downtown Honolulu and it seems he's doing it for no other reason than to get Steve's attention. Interesting case fic and the getting together at the end has a warm feel of inevitability.



Torchwood

Fading - Owen/Tosh. This is one of my favourite het pairings and while the canon broke my heart, this fic healed it, at least temporarily. This is beautiful and bittersweet, and Tosh here is exactly as she is in my head; brave and self-contained.

kat_lair: (WHO - tardis)

Whee LJ is working again and I can post. Thusly, various things collected via flist and wider internets, that have made me happy this week.


- First, I would like to take a moment to express my appreciation to my subconscious that last night gave me a very vivid dream about making out with Adam Lambert. Despite my fandom consumption I very rarely get fandom related dreams so thank you for that subconscious, keep it up.

- This very interesting blog post about sadism.

- If Harry Potter was an anime

- Tom Felton shares his feelings about Voldemort

- New Doctor who trailer )

- PATD's The Overture. Yes, I only recently watched it. Bandom people on my flist, You are all FIRED for not telling me about it sooner. )

- In other PATD news, Jon recently posted some new-old pics from his Panic days.

This one made me ache with how much I want Ryan/Spencer fic, oh god.  )

Also this one, totally Manchester Piccadilly station. )


- Patrick Stump, get in my pants. )


- These gifs about the Way Brothers. )


- [livejournal.com profile] me_maneuver's harp covers of MCR's Disenchanted, PATD's Mona Lisa, and Mumford and Sons' Weep, Little Lion Man. I've basically played them all several times over the last few days and they don't get any less beautiful.



- Hawaii Five-0 Brokeback Mountain. )

- A Swedish folk song )

- Benedict Cumberbatch reads Jabberwocky )


- Finally, something G-rated. Baaaaaaaby chimpanzees. )

- Right. Now I'm going to make some experimental bread. Stay awesome, my pretties.


kat_lair: (GEN - never trust fate)

Welcome to the rec spam week! I'll be reccing 10 fics per day this week from a great variety of fandoms in an effort to clear some of the backlog.

Rec disclaimer:
If I liked it, it's included. Meaning there are fics here that I liked in a 'aww, that made me smile' way as well as those that made me go 'oh god best thing ever, wish I could write like that'.

So, without further ado...

***


Harry Potter

A Thousand Beautiful Things
- Draco/Harry, various other pairings. I recently reread this story and fell in love with it all over again (and discovered it has a sequel! though I haven't gotten that far yet). The plot is somewhat meandering and incorporates several different POVs as it charts events from 5th year to after the war. Written before the last books came out so it veers of canon at that point. The curse and the curse breaking are fascinating and work as a way to explore the characters, not just a contrived plot device to bring them together.

Light as Iron, Singed as Pearl - Draco/Harry, d/s. This is a very, very interesting fic from a Dom's pov that effectively captures a lot of the issues to do with control and respect and trust, including trust in yourself as a dominant. I enjoyed this a lot even though as a rule I tend to prefer Draco as a sub.



Hawaii Five-0

All the Girls Out On the Stoop - Danny/Steve. Okay so everyone has read this one already, right? Right? In which Danny's Veela heritage causes some serious havoc to his working life, to say nothing about his partnership... This is just delightful and hilarious. Danny's reactions are perfectly in character while Steve gets increasingly pissed off watching every criminal on the island try to hit on his partner.

Fix Definitely as Desired - Danny/Steve. Steve keeps giving Danny reasons to like Hawaii. A lot of them involve blowjobs. And how Steve kind of moves Danny into his house. Happy warm fuzzies all around as well as steamy sex and bickering.

I Keep Fixing Every Habit That I Break
- Danny/Steve. Steve goes undercover as a rent boy, Danny gets a little, uh, territorial. Mmm... there is nothing but awesome about this fic. Steve all twinked up and eager under Danny's hands. There is a faint yet utterly delicious d/s flavour to this as well that made me very happy. In my pants.

Not Tonight Honey, I Have a Headache
- Danny/Steve. Danny is Steve's 'wife'. It starts as a joke but doesn't stay like that for long. Funny and snarky with a good smattering of h/c. An uncomplicated treat of a fic.

Shall Pass Through Fire and Water
- Danny/Steve. Danny thinks Steve is dead (spoiler: he's wrong). This is a lovely helping angst with a genuine sense of shock and loss at the beginning.



Star Trek XI (Reboot)


Matters of Size  - Spock/Uhura, implied Kirk/McCoy. Heee! Kirk only wants to defend the reputation of the human penis. For some reason no one believes him.



Star Trek XI
(Reboot) RPS

Indefinable
- Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto. I loved the pace and atmosphere of this; quiet and achy and sweet. Not knowing exactly what you are to each other, but knowing that you are something important.



Supernatural


Serial Games - Dean/Sam, AU. This is dark and twisted and contains graphic, extreme and eroticised violence. Winchester family as serial-killers and how Sam comes to want what he never wanted to want. The psychological aspects killing and coming to enjoy killing and the dynamic between the brothers are incredibly (disturbingly) well done.



kat_lair: (GEN - never trust fate)

Welcome to the rec spam week! I'll be reccing 10 fics per day this week from a great variety of fandoms in an effort to clear some of the backlog.

Rec disclaimer:
If I liked it, it's included. Meaning there are fics here that I liked in a 'aww, that made me smile' way as well as those that made me go 'oh god best thing ever, wish I could write like that'.

So, without further ado...

***


Harry Potter

A Thousand Beautiful Things
- Draco/Harry, various other pairings. I recently reread this story and fell in love with it all over again (and discovered it has a sequel! though I haven't gotten that far yet). The plot is somewhat meandering and incorporates several different POVs as it charts events from 5th year to after the war. Written before the last books came out so it veers of canon at that point. The curse and the curse breaking are fascinating and work as a way to explore the characters, not just a contrived plot device to bring them together.

Light as Iron, Singed as Pearl - Draco/Harry, d/s. This is a very, very interesting fic from a Dom's pov that effectively captures a lot of the issues to do with control and respect and trust, including trust in yourself as a dominant. I enjoyed this a lot even though as a rule I tend to prefer Draco as a sub.



Hawaii Five-0

All the Girls Out On the Stoop - Danny/Steve. Okay so everyone has read this one already, right? Right? In which Danny's Veela heritage causes some serious havoc to his working life, to say nothing about his partnership... This is just delightful and hilarious. Danny's reactions are perfectly in character while Steve gets increasingly pissed off watching every criminal on the island try to hit on his partner.

Fix Definitely as Desired - Danny/Steve. Steve keeps giving Danny reasons to like Hawaii. A lot of them involve blowjobs. And how Steve kind of moves Danny into his house. Happy warm fuzzies all around as well as steamy sex and bickering.

I Keep Fixing Every Habit That I Break
- Danny/Steve. Steve goes undercover as a rent boy, Danny gets a little, uh, territorial. Mmm... there is nothing but awesome about this fic. Steve all twinked up and eager under Danny's hands. There is a faint yet utterly delicious d/s flavour to this as well that made me very happy. In my pants.

Not Tonight Honey, I Have a Headache
- Danny/Steve. Danny is Steve's 'wife'. It starts as a joke but doesn't stay like that for long. Funny and snarky with a good smattering of h/c. An uncomplicated treat of a fic.

Shall Pass Through Fire and Water
- Danny/Steve. Danny thinks Steve is dead (spoiler: he's wrong). This is a lovely helping angst with a genuine sense of shock and loss at the beginning.



Star Trek XI (Reboot)


Matters of Size  - Spock/Uhura, implied Kirk/McCoy. Heee! Kirk only wants to defend the reputation of the human penis. For some reason no one believes him.



Star Trek XI
(Reboot) RPS

Indefinable
- Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto. I loved the pace and atmosphere of this; quiet and achy and sweet. Not knowing exactly what you are to each other, but knowing that you are something important.



Supernatural


Serial Games - Dean/Sam, AU. This is dark and twisted and contains graphic, extreme and eroticised violence. Winchester family as serial-killers and how Sam comes to want what he never wanted to want.

kat_lair: (GEN - thesaurus)

So hey, I should be packing, but instead I'm eating a cherry yoghurt and listening to Planet Rock. Procrastination ftw!

Things:

- Got all 26 project proposal feedbacks written and emailed off in time.

- Went to see the new Harry Potter movie with [livejournal.com profile] trialia. It was epic and my they all grew up pretty. That's the extent of my intellectual commentary.

- Ex-Housemate-of-Awesome and her bf are coming to get Perdie and Tricks today. Undoubtedly there will be kitty trauma as not only is it a new house but B and bf have a new kitten of their own now so... I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm fretting over how Perdie and Tricks are going to cope; they're my baaaaaaaabies.

- Strictly Come Dancing finale tonight!!! Only one person on my flist shares my enthusiasm about this but yayyyyyyyyy!!!

- Am up to date with Glee now. I have feelings about it and they mostly revolve around wanting to adopt Kurt.

- Also finished Ugly Betty. The finale made me cry. Ngl, Betty and Daniel is my id-pairing and I ship it hard. Shut up and point me to some decent fic.

First line of fic written each month. )

kat_lair: (KINK - my pimp!cane is delicious)
Some answers to the Vanilla Fuckbuddy, Kinky Fuckbuddy, One Night Stand meme.

There’s been some discussion going on what would actually qualify as ‘vanilla sex’, and granted it’s a very vague term, the meaning of which varies from person to person. One person’s vanilla is another person’s dirty kink *shrug*. But here, let’s assume it’s sort of ‘no frills’ sex, so no toys or bondage or fetishes or power exchange element – none of which necessarily makes the sex boring or unsatisfying mind.

Okay, onwards to the answers...

[livejournal.com profile] snuffkin gave me Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz and Gabe Saporta (musicians, Bandom) )



and Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (actors, Supernatural) )



[livejournal.com profile] trialia gave me Snape, Dumbledore and Hermione from Harry Potter. Because she is evil. )


Right, I probably won't get a chance to post the rest of the answer until next week. It's the Manchester Pride Big Weekend and [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666 and I have tickets and plan on revelling in it for as long as our energy reserves can take it. Will take my camera so hopefully there will be photos next week too. Catch you on the flipside darlings.
