With this post, another Kinky Kristmas season comes to a close. Although we had fewer total pieces this time around, we had a wider range of characters and pairings than in previous years -- even a number of characters never before featured in Kinky Kristmas -- thus proving that Daily Deviant continues to produce some of the most interesting, unsual, and varied fic and art to be found in the fandom. A huge round of applause to all of this year's fantastic authors and artists!
Before we get to the reveals, we have some huge thank yous to extend.
- As always, our most heartfelt thanks to everyone, both members and watchers, who read, viewed, commented, and recced throughout December. We all play in this big fandom sandbox for the interaction with
like-minded individuals, so it's you wonderful folks who keep this fandom and this comm rolling along. THANK YOU!
- Once again, thanks go out to the authors and artists who contributed pieces to this year's celebration. You've helped fulfill some members' smutty holiday wishes while entertaining the rest of us in the process, and the resulting collection of works is wondrous indeed!
- And last but most definitely not least, enormous heaps of gratitude and virtual brownies to those generous souls who contributed pinch hits and extra pieces this year: its_art
, and unbroken_halo
. ♥ ♥ ♥
We're truly delighted by this year's collection of tasty and unusual fics and art. We hope you enjoyed the pieces as much as we did, that you'll spend some time going back to any fantastic things that you might have missed, and that you'll continue watching the action here at Daily Deviant throughout the new year.
Now, with all of that said...( The Kinky Kristmas 2013 Reveals )
Below the cut you'll find the big list of all the pieces from Kinky Kristmas 2012. Do be sure to check it out and go back to anything you might have missed. You might have overlooked a real gem or two -- and there's some great stuff that could use some more love!

Apologies for the four-hours-late post; the internet gods apparently decided that I didn't really need to be online earlier this evening.
And that's all
they wrote (and drew)! The fat lady has already done belted it out and left the stage. Kinky Kristmas 2012 posting has officially come to an end. A couple of days later than we originally intended, but we figure no one minds getting more

You won't hear from us again until Christmas Day, at which point we'll be posting a very tasty treat that we think will go down quite well with your well-deserved booze and/or brownies once the loud kiddies and square in-laws have finally gone to bed. Be sure to keep an eye out for it! Until then, happy holidays to those who are celebrating. And remember, no matter how wholesome your holiday traditions might be, always keep one foot firmly planted in the gutter!
With just under a month to go until Kinky Kristmas pieces are due and posting begins, it's time for us to give you the headers for your fic or art...
These are to be used by both members and watchers who are participating. Please use a "highlight to read warnings" bar only if you are warning for a potential plot spoiler. Remember, pieces are to be submitted to us at dd.mods at gmail by Friday, November 30. Send fic as a .doc or .rtf file; no Googledocs please. Send art directly to us as well -- we'll be hosting it for you. Remember, we're posting pieces anonymously, so don't post your work elsewhere until reveals have gone up in January!
Just as it says on the Kristmas tin, watchers may now begin claiming wishes to participate in this year's Kinky Kristmas celebration. There are still lots of great prompts available. Go here
to claim yours!
Please makes sure you check the rules out so you know the deadlines! Now is your chance to be a Deviant too! :)
Below you'll find a list of all the wishes submitted by our members. There's a huge variety: het, femslash, and slash, all sorts of pairings, threesomes and moresomes, romantic themes to dark ones, and, of course, dozens of different kinks. They range from a little bit naughty to thoroughly filthy. Something for everyone!
In order to make a claim, simply reply to this post and tell us the number of the wish you'd like to fulfill. Comments are screened to preserve anonymity. Each wish can be claimed only once, and as they're taken they'll be struck off the list. We'll be monitoring the post closely and crossing out wishes as they're claimed. If the prompt you pick has already been taken, we'll let you know right away; otherwise you can assume you got the wish you wanted.Members, you have a 24 hour "head start" to make your claims before watchers join in.
Watchers: a post will go up at noon (U.S. Eastern time) tomorrow (September 30th) to let you know you may begin claiming wishes.
Completed pieces are due by Friday, November 30 and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Fic must be a minimum of 1,000 words and art must be a completed piece. Both fic and art must merit at least an R rating. No crossovers permitted. Watchers: your pieces must fit into a single IJ post. The mods reserve the right to refuse any fic that contains multiple SPAG problems or art that appears to be a last-minute slap-dash sketch, so be sure to plan ahead and find a reliable beta. Headers for both fic and art will become available a little closer to December.
We're super excited that it's Kinky Kristmas time again, and we're looking forward to seeing loads of fantastic, kinky work! ( Click for the Big List o' Wishes )
Just a quick reminder that Kinky Kristmas wish claiming begins this weekend!
The Big List o' Wishes goes up at noon U.S. Eastern time this Saturday, September 29. Once again, d_d members get a 24 hour "head start" period to pick their prompts, then claiming will open up to watchers at noon on Sunday.
At last, all the down and dirty info you need in order to play in Kinky Kristmas 2012! In keeping with the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" school of thought, we're keeping things essentially the same as last year. For those who are new to the game or who just need a refresher, here's how it works...
Our members work hard all year 'round to provide the fandom with quality kinky pr0n, and they deserve a reward in December. They'll be making smutty wishes for fics and art that would make their holidays happy, then both members AND watchers will get to claim and fulfill those wishes. We're excited to give our watchers an opportunity to take part in thanking our members and to participate in the comm with us. And who knows -- we might even find a talented new member or two!
Additionally, Kinky Kristmas is going double-blind anonymous once again this year. The wishes will be posted anonymously and the claiming will also take place anonymously. All pieces will be submitted to the mods (email@example.com) for anonymous posting throughout December. Author/artist reveals will take place in early January.
Tomorrow -- Wednesday, September 19 -- we will put up a post asking members to begin submitting their wishes. This will be done through screened comments to the post. We'll continue collecting wishes for one week.
Saturday, September 29 we will post a numbered list of all the wishes and claiming will begin. Claiming will also be done though screened comments to the post. Each participant may claim one wish to fulfill, and claiming will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Once claimed, a prompt will be struck from the list. Our members will have a 24 hour "head start" to make claims before watchers may begin.
Participants will have all of October and November to create their works. All pieces are due by Sunday, November 30. Requirements for fic and art are the same as all other months on the comm. Fic must be a minimum of 1,000 words and art must be a finished piece. Both fic and art must merit at least an R rating. Watchers' fics must fit into a single IJ post. No crossovers permitted. Headers and other submission guidelines will come later.
Both members' and watchers' pieces will be posted anonymously throughout December. At this time the names of the wishers/giftees will be revealed, so everyone will get to find out for whom they've written/drawn. Author/artist reveals will be posted in early January.
Right, that should just about cover it. We look forward to seeing loads of fabulous, kinky fic and art this holiday season!
When we said we were sprucing the place up and getting ready to decorate for the holidays, we weren't kidding. In fact, that might have been something of an understatement.
We are tickled pink (and probably other colors besides) to announce that Daily Deviant HAS A FANTASTIC NEW BANNER AND COLOR SCHEME
This absolutely gorgeous (and appropriately sexy) layout is provided by the one and only twilightsorcery
-- a fantastic artist and brilliant programmer who we've been fortunate enough to have on the comm since the early days. Thank you from the bottom of our filthy little hearts, twilightsorcery
So! Everyone please click the link
and take a look at our brand new look! And be sure to tell the artist how much you love it. :)
For some time now, HP fandom has become inceasingly scattered across multiple journaling systems and fan sites. We know it can be difficult to keep up with what's going on across all of those systems and sites, and sometimes important information and good pr0n get lost in the mix. So we've come up with a simple way to help ensure that you all never miss an exciting announcement or an even more exciting kink.dd_updates
is an LJ comm where we'll be crossposting/linking to any mod posts we make over here on Daily Deviant. Those of you who don't make it to IJ as often as you'd like can still keep an eye on the fun from afar by watching Daily Deviant Updates
.(Note: Posting members of Daily Deviant, you should join dd_updates if you wish to be able to see the messages that are intended for your eyes only -- the same messages that are locked to members here. Everyone else, simply watch dd_updates for announcements, masterlists, and news.)
And for your porn reading pleasure, do remember that Daily Deviant does have an RSS feed: dd_ij
. Go here
to add it to your f-list.
Stay tuned; more announcements and Kinky Kristmas 2012 info coming shortly...ETA:
If your primary fandom hub is DW rather than LJ or IJ, we'll also be crossposting/linking mod messages to the Daily Deviant comm there
. Same deal on DW; posting members of Daily Deviant may join, watchers may subscribe. We don't mind where you stay in the loop, as long as you continue looping with us! ;)
This year's fantastic collection of pieces is a bit different than our previous ones in terms of characters and pairings and so forth. In case anyone missed them, the 2011 stats are in this post
Before we get to the big reveal, we're going to take just a moment to extend some very heartfelt thank yous. Once again, Kinky Kristmas was a smashing success, and none of it could have been possible without you.
- Thank you to everyone, both members and watchers, who read, viewed, commented, and recced throughout December. We're all here for the interaction with like-minded fans, so without people like you, there'd be no Kinky Kristmas or Daily Deviant or HP fandom at all. I think most of us have noticed that there's been a bit of a drop off in commenting across fandom over the last year or two. Nonetheless, this year's KK generated more than 1,200 comments
on its 70 pieces, and we've had enough recs to have 37 pieces
than last year!) listed in the Daily Snitch!! We truly cannot thank you all enough.
- Second, huge thanks to the members and watchers who contributed fic and art to this year's event. You all clearly put your collective best foot forward, as the response proves. A standing ovation to you all.
- Last, but certainly not least, huge heaps of gratitude and virtual chocolate to those who contributed pinch hits or extra pieces this year: celandineb
, and tripperfunster
We're positively thrilled with the results of this year's celebration, and we hope you had a fantastic time reading and viewing. This fandom and the brilliant and talented individuals who comprise it are amazing. ♥

Carry on ficcing and arting!
For those participating in Kinky Kristmas (both members and watchers), here are the headers for both fic and art.

Thanks very much to everyone who jumped in and claimed wishes for this year's Kinky Kristmas. Judging by the wishes and the list of awesome writers and artists who are fulfilling them, December is going to be fantastic!
If anyone missed out on the big burst of claiming, there are still just a few wishes
that haven't found a home yet. Also, we can already see a spot or two where we'll likely need pinch hits/additional pieces. Any volunteers, do give us a shout.
Thanks again, and we're looking forward to all the smutty holiday goodies!
