Save the Last Dance for Me

  • 3rd Feb, 2007 at 8:03 PM
Guh. Someone on skyehawke left this ridiculously long, ridiculously harsh, possibly true review for SKOM. And now its rating has jumped down from five stars to two stars. How depressing. I must be the only one on that site with a rating below a four...

Anyway. OMG. July 21st. I hope it never, ever comes. Hopefully JKR will realise she made a huge, huge, huge error in DH (aka HP and the OTP, as Sharon so affectionately dubbed it) and be forced to go back and spend the next ten years rewriting it. And when I say "huge, huge, huge error", I mean "DRACO AND HARRY NEED TO STAY ALIVE AND BE TOGETHER, GODDAMNIT".

I'm thinking of going to the UK for the book release. I mean, if I get that scholarship from USC, I definitely will. I just have to find someone who loves me enough to go with me (none of my HP-hating friends do). And if I can't go... well, someone better throw a BITCHING good release party here in the US.

Anyway, I wrote a new D/H one-shot. This one was sort of a spur of the moment thing, like all my other one-shots. It's semi-based on Brian and Justin's relationship in QaF (hence my use of the song).

Title: Save the Last Dance for Me
One-shot/Songfic/Chaptered: One-shot, Songfic
Genre: Slash
Rating: 15
Warnings: Slash, sexual references
Ships: Harry/Draco
Disclaimer: JKR owns all. Except for the song, which someone else whose name I don't know wrote, and the QaF similarities.
Summary: Harry and Draco have an arrangement they stand by, no matter what. Based on Michael Bublé's cover of "Save the Last Dance for Me".
Word count: 3771

Save the Last Dance for MeCollapse )

Notes: I borrowed the "Have you ever been on a date?" bit between Harry and Wayne from Michael and Brian in Queer as Folk episode 105.

Heh. It's funny how all I do now is read D/H fics, when before I couldn't stand reading D/Hr or anything else save for a select few stories. Speaking of reading, I read a really good Sirius/James one-shot called "A Cold Heaven" by forsakenphoenix on MNFF (imagine that... a good slash fic on MNFF). And now I've grown rather fond of Sirius/James. But I'll always love D/H the best.

Okay, English paper time.

The Perfect Present

  • 19th Dec, 2006 at 8:48 PM
Gah. I'm dancing tomorrow. In front of 2000 people. WTF? I don't dance. I still can't figure out how I got dragged into this...

Anyway. Seeing as I've written a Christmas fic every year since I started dabbling in fanfiction, I figured I couldn't not do it this year. It took me a while to figure this one out, both because I don't have enough time to sit down and write a one-shot in... well, one shot, and because I haven't written anything this fluffy for a LONG time so I had some trouble remembering how to. I felt like a newbie writer again, using cliche after cliche, but I couldn't resist!

To those of you who can't stomach sickeningly sweet, overused lines and anything H/D-related, don't read past this point :P

Title: The Perfect Present
One-shot/Songfic/Chaptered: One-shot
Genre: Romance, Slash
Rating: PG-15. Or R, if you insist on following the MPAA rating system.
Warnings: Slash, implied sexual content, language
Ships: Harry/Draco
Disclaimer: JKR is the ruler of the world, and stuff. Without her I would be lost.
Summary: A fluffy one-shot about Harry and Draco's first Christmas together. Involves broken noses, matching ties, and a cat named Harriet. Harry/Draco
Word Count: 6905

Probably the most plotless thing I've ever written...Collapse )

I think I might write another Christmas one-shot (with a different ship, of course) if I can find the time to. I'm not all too pleased with this one, and besides, I'm just feeling so... not really Christmassy, but more like in the mood to write something Christmassy. I think that's quite clear already, though.

By the way, if anyone wants to read the one I wrote last year, here's the link. It's James/Remus. I'm not going to link to the other one because it's embarrassingly awful.

Edit: I changed the name of the fic ^_^

Invincible + AMV

  • 24th Nov, 2006 at 12:39 PM
Well, first of all, I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving ^_^ I can't say that mine was all too pleasant, considering I was sick (and still am...*groan*) and consequently unable to eat anything while everyone ran around stuffing their faces. In case you haven't noticed, I'm bitter :P

But anyway, yay for four-day weekends. While I was stuck at home and waiting for my family to get back from their Thanksgiving feast, I managed to write another two pages of ATW. I'm nearly finished chapter 33 now. Also, because I'm struggling through one of those filler scenes in Miraculous right now (I think I'm going to call it Some Kind of Miracle now, just because SKOM is a pretty awesome acronym), I decided to release some of my lack-of-H/D-action frustration by writing an H/D one-shot. So here it is.

A couple of things first. One, it's based on the song "Invincible" by Jesse McCartney, which is basically one of my favourite songs ever (it made me cry, and music almost never makes me cry). Two, I wrote it while I was like, insanely sick and delirious, so there are some parts of it (such as Harry's climbing up the Gryffindor tower from the outside...) that don't make sense. Actually, the whole thing doesn't really make sense, and I'm still not sure what I was trying to get at when I wrote it. Three, forgive any similarities to my other H/D fic...I kept thinking about it while I was writing this, so I might've gotten the two stories a little mixed up. But whatever.

Title: Invincible
One-shot/Songfic/Chaptered: One-shot, Songfic
Genre: Romance, Slash
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Slash, obviously, and maybe some really mild sexual content?
Ships: Harry/Draco
Disclaimer: JK Rowling is the creator of all that is good and must not die, at least not before book 7 is published. And the lyrics at the beginning and end belong to Jesse McCartney.
Summary: In the midst of a war-torn world, Harry lives carrying the wizarding world’s burdens, while Draco willingly follows his leader in darkness. When they meet one evening in the most unexpected of places, however, they find that their differences can be put aside, even if just for one night. Based on the song “Invincible” by Jesse McCartney.
Word count: 4398

Everyone should listen to this song.Collapse )

I've realised that I like to write newspaper articles about Draco dying. I did it in Meant To Be, The Sweetest Sin, Miraculous, and now in this. Actually, I seem to enjoy killing Draco off in general. There must be something wrong with me. Hopefully Draco won't die in ATW...*grins evilly*

Oh yes, and I made a Loveless AMV too! I love Loveless. I think the seventh volume of the manga comes out tomorrow (that's the 25th, right?). I'm going to be glued to my computer, waiting for a scanlation to be posted.

Ritsuka and Soubi are both so HOT *wubs*Collapse )

Okay, that's the end of my long post.

Entry for MN's contest

  • 29th Dec, 2005 at 10:17 PM
I'm sure most people know this by now, but Mugglenet is holding a contest to see who can write the best beginning of book 7. My chances of winning are pretty much .000000001% (considering all the luck I had with the editorial editor position...) but I might as well give it a shot, right?

Therefore, instead of digging into my heaps of homework (like I should have), I spent this evening writing up this little 985-word piece:

Title: Harry Potter and the Serpent's Gift (haha I made up a title for fun...)
One-shot/Songfic/Chaptered: None really, but I guess one-shot
Genre: General
Rating: G-PG
Warnings: HBP Spoilers
Disclaimer: All recognisable HP characters and storylines belong to the wonderful J.K. Rowling.
Summary: ...

So, is Godric's Hollow a house, street, or village?Collapse )

It's not quite in the final stages yet; I think I'm going to try to cut it down a little more. But chances are that I'm gonna get lazy and just end up entering this anyway instead of taking the time to tidy it up.

Hmm, too late. I sent it already. So if anyone dares to point out any mistakes, I'll murder you :P

Oh yeah, I almost forgot -- I finally got a one-shot I wrote like, a bajillion years ago called 'The Night the World Ended' validated, so here's the link. *Orders you to hopes you read it*
