I don't make recs, until I do.

"Harry," Draco says, and he turns around. "You're going to love Scorpius. He has your determination. And your big heart. And his magic has a—a certain intense, concentrated quality just like yours does. If he casts a Warming Charm on me, it feels just like you."

I don't make recs, until I do.

Seriously, I like, NEVER make reccs. Also is it recs? or reccs? Anyway...

This was my original prompt that I have LEGIT left as a prompt in comms for YEARS. And this year, thanks to [community profile] hp_goldenage it was fulfilled.

This was my prompt:

On her deathbed, Astoria tells Scorpius that she's not his mother. Draco had carried him and gave birth to him and because of *whatever reason up to the author* Draco had to marry Astoria. They had a good marriage but were just friends and not partners. Now it's up to Scorpius to find his father's true happiness.
Suggested Characters/Pairings: Harry/Draco
Theme/Tone: Investigative
Additional Info: Scorpius sets upon himself to find his father's lost love and on his way discovers that he has a bunch of half siblings. Harry and Ginny divorced twenty years ago and Harry never remarried. Is there a chance for Draco and Harry to get together finally?


And this is the gorgeous FUCKING FIC that was written for it.

when by now and tree by leaf Harry/Draco, NC-17
Summary: When Scorpius Malfoy is saying goodbye to his dying mother, he doesn't expect to hear her confess, "Your father slept with another man and became pregnant with you." Grappling with his grief and his identity, Scorpius sets out to discover the identity of his other father, who it turns out has a lighting-shaped scar and no idea that Scorpius exists.

Excerpt:

Scorpius turns the page to reveal an older woman with brown curls holding Teddy. He realises it must be his great-aunt. He needs to show this one to his dad—Andromeda looks a bit like his grandmother, especially in the chin and the lips.

He walks to the kitchen, trying not to slam into the wall as he keeps his eyes on the photos, but as he gets to the door he stops short.

His dad and Harry are snogging. Snogging in the kitchen! He takes a small step back, but he can't tear his eyes away because his dad—his father—is pushing Harry against the counter and threading his fingers though Harry's hair.

"The last time I did something this reckless was the last time we got together," Draco says, pulling away a few centimetres.

Harry hooks one of his thumbs in the back of Draco's trousers, and he looks earnest as he says, "It's not the same, though."


REALLY, THOUGH. JUST GO AND READ IT.

November Audiobook List

# Title Author Length - Audio My rating Date Finished
1 Well-Tailored: A Thorne and Dash Companion Story Violet, Silvia 7 hours B- Nov 05, 2017
2 More Than This Ness, Patrick 11 hours A- Nov 14, 2017
3 Lies & Diamonds & Bears (Love, Vegas Style, #2) Stone, Ethan 2 hours B- Nov 16, 2017

5 The Lawrence Browne Affair (The Turner Series, #2) Sebastian, Cat 7.5 hours A- Nov 26, 2017
35.5 hours


This was a pretty decent month, I thought - regarding the quality of the books. "More than this" is a YA pg-13 book that [livejournal.com profile] writcraft recommended and I have to say it was pretty great. The 11 hours just flew by and the author did a great job really getting into the main character's head. I really appreciated everything about each character and it's a dark story with a sci-fi twist I was not expecting. The surprise of the month came from my newly discovered author "Cat Sebastian" who is just pretty amazing at writing historical gay fiction. The two books in the series that I finished were incredible in their own way and I loved her take on all the characters. I'm in love with Cat's writing style.

Audiobook / LGBT book recap - August, September, Ocotber 2017

So here’s the news… I cancelled my AUDIBLE ACCOUNT. LIKE omg. Everytime I go on audible.com, they show me this sweet message:



I HAD BEEN A MEMBER SINCE 2014!!!!

But the OTHER news is that I still have about 15 audiobooks purchased in my library that I need to get through. So I cancelled my account, but I am going to renew it in 6 months. I just don’t want to pay 15.00 dollars a month when I have an extensive library.

I also haven’t updated my list of audiobooks since July.

So below is the list for Aug/Sept/Oct 2017 and about 60+ hours of audiobooks. September was pretty low b/c I was out of the country for 2.5 weeks and then I was playing catch up on ALL THE FESTS and MOD duties. Sigh.

Title Author Length My Grade/Rating Date Finished
Fitting In (Fitting In #1) Violet, Silvia 4.5 HOURS B 8/16/2017
Skin After Skin (PsyCop #8) Price, Jordan Castillo 15 HOURS A 8/29/2017
Silken Starling, Isobel 2.5 HOURS B+ 9/18/2017
Canning the Center (Long Pass Chronicles, #2) Lain, Tara 9 HOURS C- 9/18/2017
The Rebuilding Year (The Rebuilding Year, #1) Harper, Kaje 9.75 HOURS B+ 10/12/2017
The Shape of You Stevens, Felice 6.75 HOURS B- 10/19/2017
The Undercover Rock Star (Bulletproof, #1) Galicki, Jenna 2 HOURS B- 10/20/2017

Due dates and ramblings...

I didn't bother tagging the comms -- but you guys know what's up.

UPDATE: 9.26.17
hd_familyfest - Sept 15
Merlin Canon - Sept 21
hd_fan_fair - Sep 30 (I think. I got an extension)
weasleyjumpers - October 5

Hd-owlpost (times 3) - November 12
hd_erised - Nov. 6
HD ART FEST - Nov 8

I signed up for hoggywartyxmas again this year.

I will prob. sign up for winterknights - not sure about merlin holidays - it's not really my cup of tea (are they even running?)

And will have to check w/ other mods about the rare pair exchange fest at rarepair_shorts.

Not sure if my CD Co-mod would wanna do an exchange fest again for camelot_drabble b/c I know she had a tough time last year with the participants to check in and that's a serious PIA, yo.

I see that there's a Harry/Draco big bang on the horizon but I'm not sure if I will actually do it b/c big bangs always intimidate me and I end up dropping out b/c I am just not into writing for the long haul...I guess? Maybe I just get scared. I write fluffy romance and no one needs to read tooth rotting fluff for 50k plus. Even though that's exactly what my original fic is about. HA.

Also, here's another "dig is on holiday pic" under the cut.

What I'm working on...

When the deadlines are fast approaching:

July 31 – [livejournal.com profile] hd_cliche – 500 words, no big deal, but they never actually send you a confirmation so like, I didn’t have it in my “projects due” folder for the longest time.
August 13 – [livejournal.com profile] hd_cliche | art [haven't started]
August 14 – [info]daily_deviant [No clue what I’m doing]
August 15 – [livejournal.com profile] hp_drizzle [DONE DONE DONE]
September 15 – [livejournal.com profile] hd_familyfest (We have like less than 10 sign ups for this fest so I have to do *something*)
September 20 – [livejournal.com profile] merlin_canon [I have one of the early dates of posting]
October 1 – [livejournal.com profile] hp_creatures [Haven't claimed a prompt, though]
November 8 – [livejournal.com profile] hd_fanart [Hoping to do more than one]

Oh yeah, and that original fic I need to be working on.

This puts things in perspective so I guess I did forget to sign up for [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair & I have to bang out the last couple of chapters for Marketing Malfoy’s as people are getting impatient. [By people, I mean like 1 person who emailed me asking for more]
OK THEN, back to work!
