And now we have just a few final odds and ends to finish up in order to bring Daily Deviant's 10th birthday celebration to a close.
Essentially, we want to take a few moments to celebrate our members, without whom Daily Deviant never could have existed in the first place, let alone survived a decade in this crazy, wonderful, ever-changing fandom. We're grateful to each and every author and artist out there who's ever been on the members roster; thrilled by all of the creative and debauched contributions over the years. Many past members are long gone from the comm and from the fandom, but they're definitely not forgotten. And as the old have gone out, the new have come in, each new wave as excellently erotic as the last.
Our current crop of members is just as much the cream as ever (please pause for a few seconds to insert your own lewd puns here), and we want to offer up a bit of recognition to those who helped make our birthday bang. A few graphic shout-outs, if you will...( Our dildo-bedecked hats are off to you... )
The characters have banged their last bang of this birthday, and now that we've finished handing out fresh towels and sports drinks, we're back with the author and artist reveals!
...But before we name names, we want to extend a few quick but very heartfelt thanks.
First and foremost, enormous gratitude and praise to the brilliant and talented authors and artists who participated in our birthday celebration and all of those who've contributed to Daily Deviant throughout the years. This comm is great because you
have made it that way.
An extra helping of that thanks to the members who helped out with pinch hits and extra pieces in Banging Birthday, some of those very eleventh-hour: akatnamedeaster
, and thilia
-- and to everyone who's pitched in with similar help for Kinky Kristmas over the last several holiday seasons.
Last but definitely not least, tremendous amounts of appreciation going out to everyone who read, viewed, commented, recced, and otherwise interacted during our birthday celebration and to those who do it all year 'round. We keep saying this, and we mean it more each time: What makes this fandom amazing is the opportunity to connect with a huge number of intelligent, articulate, fascinating, like-minded fans. Those of you who interact, participate, and communicate are what made this fandom great in the first place and what has kept it alive all these years. You are
HP fandom. And we love you for it.♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
All right, that's enough
foreplay; let's get on with the main act, yeah? Lay back, relax, and have the...( Banging Birthday Reveals Masterlist! )
Thanks again, everyone, for a fantastic collection of pieces to commemmorate ten years in HP fandom! *applause*NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE END QUITE YET!
We'll have a final post with a few more odds and ends to tie this birthday up nicely in a neat little bow. Keep watching for one last bang later this evening...
In the vein of Kinky Kristmas' Wacky Stats, we have for you Banging Birthday's Naughty Numbers! And those numbers are pretty interesting. They vary quite a bit from the pattern we've seen over the past few Kinky Kristmases. Has there been a fandom-wide shift in preference? Or is it that some kinks and characters say "Happy Holidays" while others are more birthday appropriate? Or is it simply coincidence? We can't say, but perhaps the next Kinky Kristmas will reveal more...
Our birthday party was a smaller, more intimate affair than our Kristmas balls tend to be, so that could account for the difference in demographics as well. We had a total of 31 pieces
: 25 fic, 4 art, and 2 fic and art collabs -- something we've never had in KK! Featured across those 31 pieces were 26
different characters (or perhaps 27
if Snape's wanking watcher
was someone unique). For the most part, those characters were the usual repeat offenders. Well, Kristmas is
a time for spreading the cheer around, and birthdays are all about you and your favorites. ;)
To further break things down...( Banging By the Numbers )Reveals
have been rescheduled and will now take place on Thursday, May 12 at noon U.S. Eastern time
. Once again, apologies for the delay. Unfortunately, it couldn't be avoided. But we're back on track and will see everyone here on Thursday with the reveals and some final party favors.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, perverts and deviants, was the final bang of our birthday! *pants and falls down*
We'll be posting a pre-reveals masterlist of all the pieces tomorrow. Reveals will go up on Tuesday, May 10th at noon U.S. Eastern time. Keep watching between now and then for some other related silliness. ;)
Just a quick bit of info here followed by a little roundup...
First, we're taking a posting break today (Thursday) -- in case that isn't already obvious. It seems a lot of us have been having a crazy week and could use the weekend to catch up! We'll be back on Sunday with the final round of goodies. Posting will continue just a couple of days into May. After that, we'll announce the date for reveals and share some statistics and other fun things to wrap up our big tenth birthday celebration.
Here are the previous weeks' roundups:Week 1Week 2Week 3
And here are this week's pieces:( Banging Birthday Week 4 Roundup )
See you back here on Sunday for the final stretch!
And it's the help-you-to-catch-up-round-up for Week 3!
By the way, we apologize for the irregular posting times. Our real life "schedules" have been anything but, so we just haven't been able to manage the rigid, noon-on-the-dot posting this time around, unfortunately. In retrospect, we probably should have gone with midnight posting... Ah, well.
At any rate, things -- many tasty things -- have been posted. To make sure you've caught them all, check out the Week 1 Roundup
,the Week 2 Roundup
and the( Banging Birthday Week 3 Roundup )
And of course keep watching! We're on the home stretch now, but there are still a few fab and freaky fics and fanarts to come...

Angst, Romance, masturbation, semi-public sex, outdoor funtimes, blow jobs, hand jobsOther Warnings/Content:Word Count:
If Severus let himself think long enough, to remember far enough into the past, he’d know who first introduced him to the desire for in-the-open, out-of-doors sexual release. He knew who to blame for that, he just refused to think about it, or him.Author's Notes:
Ah, My Boys! I've missed them so much! Thank you Mystery Recip for being so open to pairing, setting and prompt and allowing me to write my favorite sort of story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it. Thank you so much Daily Deviant for continuing to ROCK so hard, and for allowing me to participate in so much of your kinky shenanigans! I can't imagine my fandom life without you in it. (That goes for my amazeballs beta who will be thanked by name later as well). <3( Of Monsters and Men )

The story of Hermione Granger's relationship with Minerva McGonagall is polysyllabic. Author's Notes:
Dear recipient, I fear that this fic doesn't have nearly as much dirty talk as I'd initially planned, but Minerva is funny that way. Hope it's okay anyway. Many thanks to both of my excellent betas and to the marvelous mods for their endless patience with me. Happy Banging Birthday, Daily Deviant!

Apologies for the impromptu posting break yesterday, everyone! When I went to put up yesterday's fic, my internets were mysteriously missing. I figured I'd post as soon as they came back, so I waited... and waited... It seems that they chose to return sometime later in the afternoon/evening when I was in bed with a migraine. By the time both my internets and my brains were working, I decided it would be bad to just randomly cram something in without warning. We all know that doing that sort of thing without adequate preparation is seriously bad, right? (Unless, of course, that happens to be your kink.)
Anyway. *ahem* We'll make it up with an extra piece tomorrow, then we'll be back on schedule.

All these interruptions meant no sex until the third date. Even if the third date was years after the first one.Author's Notes:
This story sort of went all over the place before it settled on what you see now. I went with "orgasm denial through no fault of the characters" for most of the story. Many thanks to my busy, busy beta who spots when I forget to capitalize a name or just spell it wrong in the first place. I really hope my giftee likes this. Happy Bangin' Birthday!!( Interruptions )

How's everyone enjoying our birthday party so far? :D This has been a pretty good week for next gen fans, eh? If next gen isn't really your thing, consider checking out some of those pieces (along with all the rest from this week) anyway; there's some hot stuff in there! And stick around for more fabulous fic and art. It's looking like next week might be a good one for Draco, Snape, and/or Weasley fans... *teaser*
