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:

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:

So ... I suspect one of the kitties has peed in the living room. Somewhere. Ugh.

So I guess I'll get a UV light and play CSI. 

In other news, Minou destroyed the new mousie toy in one (1) day.

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?

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

Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


So I totally stole this from [personal profile] brumeier, but it's pretty much how fic happens for me. The Creative Process )

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. ;)

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!

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. ;)

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*

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

Rating: NC-17

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. ;)
