quick (look @ my art) flyby & fic info

I was on holiday the day this was posted at [livejournal.com profile] dracotops_harry but my art for the fest is here.

Another kiss and you'll be mine

Harry used his powers to help Draco when he was turning. Now, he can't seem to turn away from the man trapped in a werewolf's body.

Prompt: # 72 by articcat621 [original prompt: Draco is bitten by a werewolf during the war. Harry helps him cope/adjust.]

And [livejournal.com profile] maraudersaffair wrote a fic with the same prompt and even include a scene w/ the dialogue from my art. (YAY!) It's a super hot fic. And you should read it.

Nothing but a Heartbeat: After Draco is attacked by a werewolf, Harry attempts to help him. Too bad Draco wants to eat him whole.

I hope you guys like it! xoxo

March 2018 - art and fic masterlist.

Late post is late, but I'm trying to catch up on life. My word count has been disappointing. I feel like I've run out of words for all my favorite characters. Sigh.

New Writing Challenge, YO. (Maybe some art too)

My prompt table for the [livejournal.com profile] newyearcntdown. I'm not sure how much I can incorporate / will participate in. I kind of hate Christmas traditions (and given I don't celebrate them b/c of my religious affiliations).

Pairings are all up in the air, I'm thinking some HD, of course, Merlin/Arthur, Charlie/Neville... any thoughts?

11/12/2017 hd_owlpost (3 gifts) er... 1 down 2 to go
12/18/2017 Rare Pair Shorts Winter Exchange What Even?


New Year’s Countdown is posting from Dec 1 to 31. Slythindor100 is from Dec 1 to 25 and DracoHarry100 gives you all the prompts up front and you can just write ONE STORY w/ all the prompts. Which I’ve totally done in the past. LOL.

Things in the back of my mind that I may or may not eventually do something for: winterknights (Merlin), and mini_fest (Harry Potter).

Also – this may or may not be happening – I have like no clue and I’m not asking the mod about it (lol): exchange fest for Camelot_Drabble.

Also, things all MODS need to do: 1. Post a link to your community in your email b/c it’s easier to click on a link than go looking and figuring out how to spell your comm name – esp when it’s not something easy like “small_gifts” 2. Always ALWAYS ALWAYS INCLUDE THE DUE DATE (esp if it’s a fest) in your email. ALWAYS. It’s awful having to go searching for the due date if you’re not someone who has a calendar handy. 3. Try to link the rules page (or the header page) in your email.

Anyway, as you were. | What are you guys working on?

Some Rare Pair Love (Masterlist!)

Every summer [livejournal.com profile] rarepair_shorts has the ‘Wishlist Event’ where people submit their wishes w/out any obligation to create or fulfill other people’s wishes. It’s one of my favourite fests and last year it was a huge success and this year, also, we had a tone of great entries. I always try to fulfill as many wishes as I can, but I always fail at not being able to do them all. This year, I was lucky enough to do 12 out of 20+ so that wasn’t so bad. If I wasn’t so busy w/ work and planning my trip in August, I would have done more! Well, there’s always next year. Below is my masterlist of the wishes I created. They were all fun an unique in their own way and I had such a great time!

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.

Asking for a friend...

How do you stop writing angst?

Like, it's this mountain top of emotions and I am sick and tired of making my character(s) doubt themselves.

Like, I wanna scream at them: SHUT UP, ARTHUR. I'm becoming the author I hate.

What's the opposite of insecurity? How can I make my characters appealing? Maybe I should try humour. But I suck at writing funny stuff.

SIGH.

Either it's Merlin or HP, my characters are just not having it w/ me, yo.

Looking for an HD storyteller!

Are you an HD story teller? Can you bang out a 500 WC story by tomorrow?

I need a collaborator for an HD art piece and it's due ASAP so I'm looking for a friend to give a few words to my art for a fest. I'm on an extension as a pinch-hitter.

No beta necessary as I can beta it for you. The story has to be somewhere between 500-1000 words. Let me know if you can help!

digthewriter @ gmail . com and I'll share the art w/ you so you can come up with a brilliant story.

Thoughts?

I hope I get at least one person! <3 <3


All set for now, but if there are other people that want to collab w/ me for future fests for art/fic, etc, I'm ALWAYS OPEN to do things like that. I love you guys.

/that is all.

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!

I'm going to put my table of fics under the cut to be less annoying. I hope it worked!
