Without a post last week because of Lumos, I feel slightly lame for not having something more. This week is only stuff I managed to read or see in passing. Next week will be a more genuine newsletter because I have 23827492345w4434 fics I want to read and about 23784 pieces of art to see, but in the meantime... this!
I was browsing through a lot of recs lists this week, so next week... beware. :D
ETA: Oh my God. I have just been through some of my earlier posts in this journal and I just have to say... FUCK, I was so emo! I'm sorry! Lol. No, seriously. Sorry.
+ F's HBP Commentaries have been updated with Chapter 19, by furiosity, of course :D
Ahhhhhh!... I LOVE THESE. Besides being entertaining, memorable, and sometimes DAMN hilarious, they're an excellent way to explore canon through F's mind, which is priceless. Being recently implanted with a lust for canon, these commentaries make me want to crawl insides the books and live there forever. (!!!!). My favorites were by far part 2, part 5, and part 6 (MIB lol ... just... see my comment for a better review). :DD
+ happiestwhen discusses OTPs and conflicting and harmonious ships
All of my OTPs work together like clockwork: H/D, R/Hr, Remus/Sirius, James/Lily. But I also consider MPP my OT3, and I ADORE James/Sirius, James/Remus, Sirius/Lily, Snape/Lupin, and Ron/Harry (can you tell I'm obessed with the marauders era?! *falls over*). I think that you can have more than one true OTP, as long as they work with other OTPs that you have as well. I love all the pairings I've just listed, but my OTPs don't conflict with eachother. Good stuff.
+ emmagrant01 has posted a review of Lumos as a whole, which I really enjoyed and absolutely agree with. If you're interested, there it is.
+ Crack, the Crack Panel at Lumos, and a Poll! by emmagrant01
I have nothing to say. This lovely woman *strokes her perfect hair* was the mod for the crack panel and did an excellent job. I love discussing crack.
angst, anger, sadness, death
+ Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow [Regulus/Lily, R, 3900]
This broke my heart! Ohhhhh, this is beautiful. I didn't think I'd like it because I hate things that break James/Lily, but in a tragic, harsh, painful way it has incorporated canon so perfectly I am speechless. Ahh!! *sobs*
humour, cleverness, smut, fun, fluff
+ Rough by shocolate [Harry/Ron, NC17, 505]
Guhhhhh. And H/D undertones! Go shocolate!! I am rapidly becoming obsessed with these 50_smutlets drabbles.
+ Never Mind The Bollocks, It's Draco/Harry (Shake Your Groove Thing) by geoviki [Harry/Draco, R, 4999]
I had never read this and I suppose still haven't read it... but geoviki read it aloud for the crack panel at Lumos and I basically peed my pants and died from laughing so hard! So it's excellent. I'm so glad I'm reccing something older, gosh. :DDD!! Heee.
love, brilliance, happiness, genius plots, general gen
+ The Canvas by enchated_jae [Draco/Harry, R, 247]
A drabble that make my heart glee with sweet happiness? But of course.
+ Four Drabbles by starrysummer [Albus/Tom, Draco/Pansy, Pansy/Ginny, Inferi Regulus, PG]
I was there when some of these were written! I love the Draco/Pansy one. *loves* And it's Led Zeppelin lyrics!
+ Draw Something that Completely Contradicts Your OTP, with art posted by mudblood428, myrafur, mneomosyne, and reallycorking [G to NC17]
I love mudblood's piece! HOMYGOD! Guhhhhh. And my favorite is reallycorking's - *WIBBLE* Yes. Ohhhh, yes. Only she can make my love and lust for het. UNSdudksgnjngfjgf,gnnhh.
+ Black Portraits by kungfooqueen [G]
These are so cute! And very pretty. I love Bellatrix.
+ Burned by realycorking [Harry/Ginny, R]
We all already know that reallycorking, celestialsoda and __hibiscus are by far my most favorite artists (how many times did i say this at Lumos?! *headdesk*), but this is really outstanding. I love Harry's contentment and the full pleasure shown in his face and the drape of his arms. I love Ginny's face and hair. Eee! If you can stand het, go here now.
+ Territory by __hibiscus [Sirius/Lily, G]
+ Felix Felicis by lizardspots [Harry/Ron, G]
I love her coloring! Lucky Kerry! Hehee. I love the look on Harry's face.
+ Art: Harry/Draco, Cedric/Victor by glockgal [G]
Sketches! I like Glock's art more when there's no color. I know I mentioned this to cmere at Lumos, but I'll say it again here. I think her raw sketches are just magnificent on their own. And glockgal is GORGEOUS, btw.
+ Happy Birthday, Harry! by reallycorking [Harry/Ginny, NC17]
Hehee. What a blowjob should be... with the feet up and having fun and all. *g* It's Harry/Ginny again and I LIKE it.
+ awkward bonding moment by pastelninja [Harry/Ron, PG]
ROFL. Please go now. LOL. Omgosh. AHAHahhahaaa I LOVE Ginny's face... and Harry's. HEE! And wtf me - just reading the words is so hot. *loves*
+ Lumos Art by __hibiscus [Harry/Draco G]
Hibi wins the earth. I saw these in person! AHH! So lovely. This is what I LOVE about this lady's art - the LINES. And her coloring is so dark and perfect. These two pieces showcase only the lines and I am in love.
chapter fiction, novel-length stories
Haha, yeah right. Maybe next week :)
