Challenge 701: The Snapely Alphabet of Places - Vault(s)

We know the numbers of various vaults at Gringotts. For example, Vault 711 belongs to Sirius Black, and Vault 713 is where Dumbledore hid the Philosopher's Stone. Does Severus own a vault? Or maybe Dumbledore left him some portion of his? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Vault(s).

(Remember: drabble posts now appear on livejournal and insanejournal and dreamwidth.)

Hey, everyone! How are you doing out there? Did everyone survive intact? We hope no one suffered any morning after ill-effects. :)

If you turned in your piece, by now you should have gotten confirmation from either [personal profile] sdk or myself. If you've emailed it in but didn't hear back, we haven't got it. Please send it in again! Our email is fwfdrunkmods@gmail.com.

You have until noon EDT Monday to turn in your piece if you haven't already. Remember, no editing allowed! If you passed out before you finished a header, that's acceptable to add to, but no correcting or messing with the fics and/or art itself.

We'll be posting all pieces anonymously on Monday evening all in one go and then voting will commence! A post on voting will go up then as well, with all the details.

We are so excited to share all of the drunken masterpieces!! :D

Drowning In Clutter

kerravonsen: Vila, worried, Avon, both looking off to the right: "We're lost, aren't we?" (lost)
[personal profile] kerravonsen

I have STUFF. It accumulates. Being a frugal, responsible person, I kept a lot of it because "it might be useful" or "somebody else might find it useful" or "I could give it away on Freecycle" or "I could sell it on Ebay". And I did none of the above. None.

The effort and stress of listing something on Ebay has obviously been too great for me to summon up the energy to do. Likewise for Freecycle. This gives me much guilt, because putting things into landfill when they could be recycled is BAD. BAD KA! BAD BAD BAD! I have thus been caught between feeling guilty if I threw it away, and feeling stressed if I didn't. Because Stuff Taking Up Space is getting to really stressful levels for me. I have all these craft materials! I need to put them somewhere! I'm running out of space!

I have finally said "enough!" (or "too much", really). Forget Ebay. Forget Freecycle. Forget them all. One phone call, and I have booked a Hard Rubbish collection. My hope is that people round about will take at least some things off the pile before it gets collected by the Local Council. Shove my guilt, the stress has just gotten TOO MUCH. Stuff it!

So. Hard rubbish. Today I've been going around the house gathering stuff and clearing away stuff. Hopefully my nephew will help me tomorrow to put heavy things outside on the kerb.

It will be good to get rid of it all.

I won the academic anxiety dream discussion in the car.
I had no idea.
Apparently it's not too common to dream of getting a test with questions like.
When are you going to give up?
How long have you known you're a failure?
Who exactly do you think you're fooling?
etc etc etc

Welcome to the July 2017 Harry Potter 20th Anniversary edition of [community profile] firewhiskeyfic! We, your Mods - [personal profile] sdk and [personal profile] torino10154, are so glad you could make it. We love everyone tonight. Feel free to friend us on DW. We promise not to stalk you... much.

Your challenges for this month are:

Harry Potter

Mirror of Erised

Room of Requirement

Anniversary

"What do you mean, I'm not brave in bed?"


Incorporate one or more into your fic/art somehow, and you're good to go!

As you know, this is the Official Discussion Post. If you feel like chatting, and we hope you do, pop in here and let us know how it's going.

And just so we're clear, you don't have to write pr0n, though it definitely makes for interesting reading when characters change right in the middle of shagging because you're too drunk to remember who you're writing about. ;) You can write for any fandom (including original), but keep in mind the majority of our players are HP people. Anything goes!

Once you are semi-conscious, send your UNBETA'D UNCORRECTED fic to this email: fwfdrunkmods@gmail.com Trust me, we can tell if you've messed with it, so don't do it, m'kay?

You will receive an email from us confirming that we got it. If you don't get an email, we didn't get it. Your fics/art will be due by noon on Monday, July 24th. Voting will begin later that evening and last until Saturday July 29th at midnight.

HERE IS THE HEADER! You can put this in the email body or the fic body. Whatever!

(please fill this out to the best of your ability. If you're unable, we will try to complete it for you)


In order to make things easiest on your poor, likely hungover mods, please put your DW or LJ username and (if you can manage) the title of your fic/art into your subject line or at least somewhere in the body of the email. Thank you!

Please do not discuss your fic/art. You can discuss ideas, drinks, how wasted you are, your favorite scene in the books, what the movies got right (or wrong), or whatever floats your boat. Just don't discuss your fic/art. This is an anonymous fest until after the reveal, and we don't want hints being given as to what you're writing about.

Shelly's starting off with Redd's Apple Ale while Torino will be arriving late but has gin chilling. How about you folks?

Let's get your drunk on!

SSHG Promptfest Reveal

kerravonsen: Snape, Hermione: "Believe" (Snape-Hermione)
[personal profile] kerravonsen
So, the [livejournal.com profile] sshg_promptest has completed, and the reveals are up.
I made two items for the same prompt, because it was such a fabulous prompt:

Threads. As light as gossamer or spun into a thread; holding things together at the seams; yarn woven into a tapestry or the warmest blanket; twisted into string, a cord, a rope. Threads of memory or of hair. Loose threads. (prompt by [livejournal.com profile] eoforth)

The reveals are now up over at [livejournal.com profile] sshg_promptfest . Please head over and spread a little love to all the authors and artist - I fully intend to over the next few days (I have so much to catch up on!).

Here is mine, which also happens to be my first foray into Discworld. Let's hope I did it some small justice. *grins*


Title: Almost Like Magic
Prompter: [livejournal.com profile] delphipsmith 
Beta(s): The lovely, LJ-less RNR
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): None.
Prompt: Snape has been appointed a lecturer at Unseen University; he and Hermione attend their first faculty soiree.

Summary:
Hogwarts' newest Professor is in a bit of a pickle. Hot on the heels of one of the country's most dangerous magical creatures, she's only gone and found herself transported to another world mid-chase. A world that is flat and disc-shaped, where magic doesn't work quite as it's supposed to, and where the local Librarian has a distinct taste for bananas. It's unfortunate, too, that this new world is also home to the last person she wants to see.

Oh, and there's still the matter of that creature to deal with.

Bugger.

DD ruminations

Jul. 20th, 2017 10:19 am
alisanne: (Default)
[personal profile] alisanne
As many of you know, I've been participating in [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant since 2007. And, with the exception of the year of cancer, I haven't missed many months.
So I thought I'd compile some wacky statistics and see how that all has shaken out so far.

For me, the big draw of DD is to be able to write pairings and kinks I normally wouldn't. Things like The Fat Lady/Molly Weasley, or Wormtail wanking while in rat form (LMAO). And yes, I even managed copraphagy (scat) once.

Anyway, I figured I'd do some calculations and see just how much I rely on my OTP for DD.
And since I consider Harry/Draco my secondary OTP, I figured I'd throw them into the calculation, too. ;)

Out of 113 total posts, I have written 23 Snarry fics, 9 Harry/Draco, and 4 Drapery. Which means about 20% of the time I write my OTP, H/D is 7%, and Drapery is 3%. That puts me at around 30% overall.
And, considering I often write my OTP for DD when desperate (I call it committing emergency Snarry *g*), that's not too bad, IMO.
FYI, I left out fics with background Snarry (where they are just mentioned as couple, but not the focus of the story).

Writing 70% 'other stuff' counts as being adventurous as far as I'm concerned. *g*

Right, how about you guys?
Especially those of you in DD, let's see your stats. I'm curious!

I have some weird things I do. Or imagine. You see I dislike death...a lot. I'm not afraid of it. I've seen it. I've even dressed deceased loved ones for their burial. But I am filled with bitterness and sorrow for slow sad death by disease in particular- So when celebrities I like die of some sad painful drawn out illness I imagine that instead they died in a big heroic duel to the death with another celebrity who died around the same time. For instance Alan Rickman and David Bowie went out like crazy sexy pirates with swords. Now George Romero and Martin Landau had their blaze of glory, but I think they used axes.
