[i]alisanne: Snowflake Challenge Day 15

Oops, for some reason I thought this was a 14 day challenge, but yay that I have one more day!



Day 15

Talk about why you participated in Snowflake &/or what you got out of it. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I have participated for...*checks*...5 years! I began in 2014, skipped 2016 for health reasons, and here I am.

Doing Snowflake seems to reground me in fandom, if that makes sense? It rekindles my love for my fandom, makes me think about why I'm here, and about the joy I get out of fandom. This such a huge part of my life that not everyone in my "real life"(I hesitate to call it that since why can't my online life be real? Grr) knows about, and Snowflake gives me a chance to celebrate it.

Plus, I generally get new friends out of Snowflake, which is fun.

And I love that it's always different, yet similar! I love the day where we do recs, and where people have to self rec since then it gives me things to read. *g*

Basically, as long as I remain enthusiastic about fandom, I'll prolly do Snowflake.

In sum:

[i]alisanne: Snowflake Challenge Day 14

LAST DAY OF SNOWFLAKE! Woe. No it's not, YAY!

Day 14

In your own space, talk about what you think the future holds for fandom. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


People far wiser than I am have opined on this, so all I'll say is, while I do see HP fandom shrinking, those of us who are left are ~passionate. LOL.
And while I've tried to use other platforms for fandom interactions, I've never mastered them, so I'm resigned to sticking to AO3 and DW, which I have at least managed to sort of master. :P
In fact, [personal profile] torino10154 and I used to joke about being the last two people in fandom, and if one of us left, the other would turn out the lights. Let's just say, I have no plans to douse the lights yet. :)

So, in sum, I'm keeping the fandom light going as long as I can:

[i]alisanne: Snowflake Challenge Day 13



Day 13

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


These are all fannish goals.

1. I'd like to finish my currently unfinished drabble series' (Snape: Horcrux Hunter, Snarry Wisdom, H/D Aurors). And then maybe resist starting any new ones. :P

2. I'd like to continue writing poetry! That was fun last year. :)

3. This one is more amorphous. I'd like to be more content in what I manage for fandom. This is my hobby, my happy place, but I do tend to put pressure on myself when I don't manage to do everything I think I should, so...I'd like to relax a bit more about it all. :)

Day 12

In your own space, create your own challenge. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I've seen some stellar ideas all over my Flist (I specifically refer you to [personal profile] brumeier, [profile] malagan, and [personal profile] corvidology), so I'm going to keep mine simple.

I challenge everyone in fandom to do something related to that fandom that makes you happy!

If you like to rec, do it!
Podfic? YAY!
Art? OMG, there can never be too much art.
Write limericks? Absolutely!
Cosplay? Yas! Work it!
Write me Snarry? Please! *g*

Whatever "it" is, do it, and wallow in the joy it gives you. ♥
Let's claim this as our happy place, yeah?

[i]heartofsteel: Animes watched

Boruto naruto next generation #88:

Boruto and others were taken to the base where the previous kage was shocked to know his village situation and taken away. Shikadai arrived in time to save boruto, Stade, inojin and cho cho. Shikadai, cho cho and inojin faced off an enemy while boruto and sarada faced off kirara. Akuta turned up and sacrificed itself to save inojin who wept over its death. Michiki ran into konohamaru who intruded the base.

Revisions #01 - #12 (finale):

2010, 10 year old daisuke was kidnapped and his kidnapper demanded him to call his friends - marimari, lu, gai and keisuke. Mysterious woman - milo turned up and saved daisuke, telling him that they would face terrible da ger in future and he would protect his friends. Since then, daisuke would turn big headed and got into trouble fending his friends over tribal matters, earning annoyance from his friends and sarcastic attitude from people around him.

2017, the entire shibuya was suddenly teleported to wasteland future 2388. Daisuke and his schoolmates were attacked by monsters known as revisions. Milo appeared again and made daisuke piloted string puppet to defeat the revisions which were killing and kidnapping people. Milo claimed she met daisuke and others for first time but could have used her time leap ability in future to save 2010 daisuke. Mayor muta and chief kurowai took over governing of shibuya as the city had lost connection with other part of Japan. Officer izumi accompanied milo, daisuke, keisuke, gai, lu and marimari to recover 2 more spring puppets. Gai and lu became the pilots to fight off arriving enemy while marimari and keisuke would be back up pilots. Revision leader chihara offered negotiations and tricked muta to send people with relevant gene to them as well as spring puppets so she could return shibuya to 2017. Gai, keisuke and others stopped the trade while daisuke went to pick the locked milo. He overheard milo's conversation with her organisation and realised her organisation had no real intention to save shibuya people. Milo insisted they were still on his side and rushed to the scene with daisuke but some people including keisuke's mum and daisuke's uncle were kidnapped by revisions. Muta was arrested for collaborating with enemy and locked up. Kurowai took over leadership. During the hard times, daisuke continued his ignorant and big headedness. Daisuke's uncle managed to escape to give information of revision's base. Daisuke got into trouble destroying building and hurting people when he piloted spring puppet without permission to find keisuke's mum and fought a revision as well as a mysterious monster who seemed to know him. With lead from daisuke's uncle, daisuke and others intruded revision base but keisuke's mum was killed as sacrifice for revision's plan. Keisuke ran into rage and killed chihari who evolved from the sacrificers' gene. Keisuke was mysteriously missing when daisuke and others returned defeated with survivors to shibuya as their plan to return shibuya to w017 failed.

With deteriorating situation as natural resources depleted and energy to spring puppets limited, there was an internal riot, izumi and lu were locked as hostage while muta was released to take over kurowai. Revision nichola appeared and muta tried to make a deal but daisuke and others stopped them.nicholas refused to return shibuya back to stop the future disaster as he liked current depressed condition. He vanished. During confusion, muta and kurowai were killed. Izumi was forced to take over leading position. Other shibuya residents aided to support operation to fight intruding revisions led by chihari's sister. Milo aided to lure the revision to a point for daisuke and lu to attack with spring puppets. She was later tasked with mission to go 2010 to kidnap and to kill keisuke. Daisuke met the monster again which saved marimari. He realised the monster was actually an illusion form of keisuke.

Daisuke eventually became matured and supportive over the past events. He offered to attack revision base alone while gai protected shibuya. In revision base, nicholas killed chihari's sister shifting shibuya back to 2017 and merged with crystal formed from keisuke to fight daisuke. Nicholas told daisuke that the future was read wrongly as keisuke was supposed to be the lead puppet master instead of daisuke. They were sucked into 2010. Daisuke learned 2010 keisuke was kidnapped instead of himself and went to find the younger him with others to stop milo from killing keisuke. Nicholas in keisuke from turned up threatening to kill young daisuke. Daisuke managed to fight nicholas into time space dimension. Milo was left to give younger daisuke her words for his future. In time space, daisuke won and was prepared to die alone in time space. Keisuke made appearance and created opportunity for lu, gai and marimari who were now in 2017 to make connection so daisuke could return to them, while keisuke sacrificed himself with nicholas who tried to stop them. After returning to 2017, daisuke's uncle and others tried to study the future virus to stop the disaster that would lead to wasteland in 2388. Some days later, other city in other country faced shibuya's earlier experience as witnessed by milo.

One Piece #867:

Smoothie general and her sisters went after namie and others on sunny ship while her brother and big mom went after bege. Luffy struggled in fight against the mochi devil fruit eater who was secretly aided by his sister.

Yakusoku no Neverland #01:

A group of children were brought up in an orphanage all their life and never ventured out beyond a fence. Some children were brought away and never seen. One day, a little conny was taken out next. 12year old Emma and her friend went after her to pass her soft toy but discovered conny was killed by monsters who treated the children like their livestock. Emma and her friend managed to return undetected and plotted to escape with other children, now knowing their situation.

Dororo #01:

To save his famine struck land, a lord made a deal with demons so his first son was born without organs. The son was then disposed but saved by a wandering organ maker. Years later, a young boy was running away from his theft crime victims when they ran I to demon that ate the victims. A mysterious teen turned up and killed the demon. Sky suddenly changed and the teen suddenly regained his real face. In his origin village, his lord father experienced a storm disaster for first time.

[i]torino10154: Pairing help?

While I'm anticipating snow and being housebound tomorrow, I'm looking for....

any threesome or moresome that contains at least one male and one female

You can leave a snippet of a scenario if you like though I can't promise I'll use that part.

It won't post till near Valentine's Day so while a romantic pairing/group suggestion is lovely, it wouldn't have to be. (In fact, I do often like turning things on their heads--infidelity rather than HEA, mock or feigned romance in a dub-con or non-con type scenario, that sort of thing.)

It does have to be something I can make NC-17 regardless. :P

[i]torino10154: Apple doesn't fall far from the tree

Even as my son will spend the morning trying to get an English essay he procrastinated on finished, I shall hopefully be getting my [community profile] daily_deviant entry polished up and posted.

I sat down immediately to write it last week but just didn't care for the vibe. Something was off with it so I started over. Always fun. I was only a few hundred words in so it wasn't bad but since I usually only write a few hundred words at a time LOL, I wasn't pleased about it.

Let's hope the porn Gods are smiling on me and whomever English students pray to is smiling down on him. ;)

[i]r_grayjoy: Drabble Prompts?

So, the Fandom Snowflake challenge for today is to "create a fanwork." I, uh, can't just up and create something very fast right now. Unless it's a drabble/tiny ficlet maybe? Maybe??

Well, I might be able to come up with a tiny thing or two this weekend... if some of you could offer up some quick prompts? A character or pairing; a word, phrase, image, simple scenario, idea...

Especially those of you who are familiar with Tin Man! I'd LOVE a Tin Man prompt or two right now.

I can't guarantee that I'll manage to pull anything off, but I'll give it a shot... It's time to knock some rust off the writing gears!

[i]r_grayjoy: Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 5



(For the record, I did Day 4. It just didn't need to be posted about here.)

Day 5:

In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them.


This is actually ridiculously difficult for me since I've been out of things for so long. I could go on for hours about all the comms and fests and such that I used to love, but nearly all of them went dormant ages ago. So it looks like I'm going to default to raving about [info]daily_deviant again.

I love this comm from the very depths of my filthy, fannish heart. It's the one thing I never let go of, even when I could barely keep a toe dipped into the fandom pool. I'm just so damned proud of the fantastic, inspired pieces our authors and artists manage to produce based on nothing more than a list of kinks or a simple theme from month to month. The best of the best are writing smut, and they're doing it with style, y'all!

On a personal level, I've been able to meet and interact with an astounding number of amazing, brilliant people over the years because of d_d. In person as well as online! Some of my favorite fandom memories are the erotic fic reading events we put together, particularly the one at Diacon Alley... and we had some pretty epic meet-ups at a few cons, too. (Pass the gummy boobies, and is anyone up for a game of cock ring toss??)

We're about to celebrate our thirteenth birthday, and WE'RE STILL GOING! We just got ELEVEN new members on board, and at least two or three long-time members who haven't posted much in a while are planning to make a comeback. So if you haven't been paying much attention to d_d lately, it's a good time to start again!

Daily Deviant, of course, is on InsaneJournal, which will be my second promotion here. Not too much seems to happen on IJ these days; most people ended up going to DW or sticking with LJ in the end. Nonetheless, IJ is still where I feel most at home. If anyone doesn't have an IJ and would like to start one (in order to keep up with d_d, especially!), let me know. I have some invite codes to spare, and can create additional ones each month.

The third promotion... is coming in the near future. Stay tuned. ;)

Day 9

Commit an Act of Kindness. In your own space, share what you’ve done, talk about what you’ve done, or simply leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I've been wracking my brain about how to fulfill this one all day.
The best I could come up with is:

1. I left several comments for friends' creations today.

2. I checked in with my beta reader, who recently had surgery and is still recovering. ♥

3. I am pimping this fest at the behest of a couple of Flisters. *g*

[i]alisanne: Ali's Yearly Fic Wrap Up: 2018

Okay, I've finally got my act together enough to do this yearly wrap up post.
I'm following the same template I have for the past couple of years (thanks again to [personal profile] gracerene for letting me gack it). *g*

Fics over 1K: 2018 )

And here are the numbers broken down into stats.

Extra Stats be Here )
And here's the big number
*drumroll* )

That number's much lower than I hoped, and I have some ideas about how to bump up my numbers this year, ideas for which I will need your help. More on that in a bit, however. :)

2018 Fest participation )

More stats are below:
Details )

And that's that!

And now to ask for your help.
As is obvious from the list above, I do best in my writing goals when I have daily prompts (e.g. May Madness). So, I am planning to start Ali 365, a way for people to leave me inspiring pairings/prompts. Now, this won't be specific gifts for people, just a way for me to shake myself out of a slump when one occurs. What do you think?

Fingers crossed we all have a fabulous new year and that 2019 rocks! <3

[i]torino10154: FIC: Going Up, Getting Down, NC-17, Severus/Harry

Title: Going Up, Getting Down
Pairing: Severus/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~1190
Content: Frottage, (f)rimming, fingering, first time, fucking in the lift
Disclaimer: Not mine. Based on characters from the Harry Potter book series.
A/N: Unbeta'd. Happy birthday to the one and only Severus Snape! Also, the tl;dr on this is I stumbled across this prompt [personal profile] alisanne had left me in August 2017 (!!!) that I seem to have never written. She asked for, "some Snarry rimming or some Snarry sex in the Ministry lift." Your wish is my command... eventually. ;)

[i]alisanne: Snowflake Challenge Day 8



Day 8
In your own space, post self-recs for at least three fanworks that you created. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


This was a tough post to compile (it was hard choosing!), but at least it spurred me on to compile my yearly wrap up list (which should be up tomorrow).

  • How to Give Socks and Influence Elves (and Pretty Professors) (LJ/IJ/DW) [Fic (8680), PG, Severus/Hermione]

    Written for last year's [livejournal.com profile] hoggywartyxmas, this one was a great deal of fun to write. Negotiating a relationship between Severus and Hermione is always enjoyable (banter! flirting!), and adding in house-elf politics and meddling colleagues made it extra smile-inducing, at least for me. :)

  • Job Negotiation (LJ/IJ/DW/AO3) [Fic (2570), NC-17, Dolores/Nagini]

    Back when I was still writing regularly for Daily_Deviant (something I hope to get back to soon), I liked to challenge myself by at least attempting the alternate pairing. This was one of my more successful tries, I think. IMO, I managed a plausible explanation for the pairing, and even though Dolores is not my fave character, getting into her head was certainly an ~interesting experience.

  • Fits Like a Glove (LJ/IJ/DW/AO3) [Fic 2050, NC-17, Neville/Percy]

    Another Daily Deviant submission, this was prolly the kinkiest thing I wrote all year. Dom!Neville and Percy, with UST you can cut with a knife. Yeah, I enjoyed coming up with this one. *g*

    And, because I can't resist one more:
  • The Cure for Weasleys in the Manor (LJ/IJ/DW) [Fic (1100), R, Severus/Lucius]

    I wrote this for May Madness and it made me chuckle with unholy glee as I was writing it. Slytherins, man. You have to love us. ;)
