I have a few different rec lists, so here is a handy-dandy post linking you to all of them. Be warned, I am a huge fan of smut and almost all of my recs are rated R or NC-17, so if you are looking for lower-rated fics, this is not the place for you. This is also almost exclusively slash pairings, though every once in awhile a het pairing manages to sneak its way in there.

I also dabble in fanfic writing, so if you're interested, you can find that HERE.

If you are curious about my likes/dislikes/preferences in fic because you want to make me something (or because you're just nosy), you can find those HERE.

I read in a ton of fandoms, but this is mostly geared towards Harry Potter. Most of these likes are pretty general, but they hold most true for my OTPs (in HP's case Harry/Draco and James Sirius/Teddy). I'm a lot less particular when it comes to the other pairings I enjoy.

And, of course, this is just a list of my general preferences. For just about all of my "dislikes" I can think of fabulous exceptions. If you are making something for me, I can pretty much guarantee I'm going to love it! <3

Tons of thanks to [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore, from whom I stole this format/organization of ideas.

For a list of unclaimed prompts that I've left for various Harry Potter fests, you can go HERE.

Just LOOK at that word count, y'all! It's def not back up to my previous levels, but it's double what I've been managing for most of the year so far, so I will take it!

Weekly Word Count (4/17 - 4/23) = 3,006

What I Worked On:
  • July [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - finished first draft! Finally! Also went through initial edits and sent off to alpha.

  • August [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - continued drafting!

  • Jeddy Pride!Fic - drafted the first section!

Pretty standard week for me these days. I spent the first half of the week traveling, so was pretty much out of commission, but still managed a handful of words! Not as much as I would have liked, but that seems to be where I'm at this year.

Weekly Word Count (4/10 - 4/16) = 1,715

What I Worked On:
  • May [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - did final read through and drafted fic for posting next month!

  • July [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - continued drafting!

  • August [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - continued drafting!

  • Rare Pair Gift!Fic - did final read through and prepared fic for posting next month!

  • ATF Sequel Ideas - added some scenes/details to my document of doom where I've been jotting down random ideas and plot points that I'd like to potentially work into a sequel. I've got quite a lot of content here and should probably sit down soon and try and wrangle it into some semblance of an actual plot.

Another meh week, but again, not a surprise at all, given that I am, once again, traveling! I didn't even have a full week at home between trips before I was off again, so the time I *was* at home this past week was spent trying to catch up on stuff, which didn't leave much time for fandom, TBH. Didn't get a lot of words, but I picked at some things and wrote more days than not, which is something I suppose.

Weekly Word Count (4/3 - 4/9) = 1,312

What I Worked On:
  • April [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - went through beta edits and posted! You can read it here.

  • Rare Pair Gift!Fic - edited first draft, sent & got back from beta, and started working through edits!

  • Ageplay Fic - started outlining! I've had a vague idea for an ageplay fic that I've been wanting to write for a couple of months, but it wants to be longer than I've had time for, so I shelved it. However, with the new [community profile] hp_daddyfest happening, I've been debating on if I'll be able to make it work for that...

Title: Changed
Author: [personal profile] gracerene
Pairings: Dean/Seamus
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~5,250
Warnings/Content: Human/Vampire relatonship, established relationship, creature!fic, vampire!fic, Vampire Dean, angst, artist Dean, endearments, biting, blood drinking, frottage
Summary: Everything is different, now that Dean has Changed.
Author's Notes: This is a prequel to my ficlet Red as Wine (and Twice as Heady) that I wrote for Daily Deviant back in January 2017 but as it takes place before that one, it can definitely be read as a stand-alone.

Fun fact, this is my original plan for what eventually that first fic. I ended up scrapping this outline when I realized it was going to be a little more angsty/less smutty than I'd been shooting for with that particular fic. I started over with something a bit snappier, but still had this backstory lying around, so I figured I might as well write it and clear out one of my WIPs! :D

Thanks to [personal profile] capitu, [personal profile] firethesound & [personal profile] kedavranox for the beta! <3

During the past three months I read 46 books, which is 7 ahead of schedule to hit my goal of 150 books for the year. 33 of the books were M/M Romances, which means 13 of the books were not, and 5 of those books were Pulitzer Prize winners. This puts me at 5 out of my goal of 6 Pulitzer Prize winners for the year, and at 13 out of my goal of 10 for non-M/M romances for the year! These goals were based on my reading last year (and were frankly set a bit higher than what I managed) but clearly I undershot! I've actually been actively working to alternate my M/M Romance reading with other books so that I continue to remember how much I LOVE reading stuff beyond queer romance. Which, DUH, I love, but I also love stuff that's less romance-focused as well. Plus, I would like to finish this Pulitzer Prize Winner challenge... someday.

As predicted, I wrote 0 words this past week as I was traveling or prepping/recovering from traveling. So here, have a monthly wrap-up instead. :)

GOALS


March Word Count Goal: 7,801 / 15,000

2019 Total Word Count Goal: 26,127 / 150,000

2019 Total Writing Days Goal: 50 / 240

As with January and February, March was slow and steady when it came to writing. Not quite at pace for where I'd ideally like to be, but I'm still making words, and I think I'm devoting as much time and energy to writing as I reasonably can at the moment.

Worked on a bunch of things this week, though didn't actually get many words on any of them, LOL. Still, progress is progress, and though I wish I was writing more words, I'm also not willing to pull back from anything else that has my energy right now in order to make it happen. So I'm learning to get comfortable with this new lower word production. I'm going to be traveling without a laptop for essentially all of this next week, so the likelihood of me getting any new words down is slim to none.

Weekly Word Count (3/20 - 3/26) = 2,230

What I Worked On:
  • March [tumblr.com profile] hpfemslash-minifest - finished drafting, editing, and posted! You can read it here.

  • June [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - edited first draft and sent off to alpha!

  • July [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - began drafting!

  • August [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant - outlined and started drafting.

  • Jeddy Pride!Fic - finished outline! This fic was almost entirely outlined already, but there were a couple of placeholder scenes that needed fleshing out, and after a conversation with a friend, I was inspired to poke at this one again.

[community profile] hpkinkfest recently posted their masterlist for their many submissions for this year's fest! As such, I thought I'd post a couple of my favorites from the fest. Though I do want to preface this and say that I read FAR fewer entries than I would have liked, so I'm absolutely positive I missed some gems. I very, very highly suggest y'all head on over to the masterlist and take a gander at what's on offer, because there is almost certainly something there to suit everybody given the wide variety of kinks and pairings! And if you're interested in reading my submission, you can find my bit of Harry/Ginny pegging here.

Reveals recently went up over at [community profile] hp_goldenage, which means I can claim my unusual submission! It's pg-rated het for a suuuuper rare pair, but the heart wants what the heart wants! I don't even know where this came from, but I really wanted to write for this fest, and for some reason this is the prompt and scenario that called to me. Link is below if you want to give it a read, and if it's not quite your cup of tea, I highly suggest checking out the final masterlist as there were all kinds of pairings and fics to choose from!

Title: The Request

Pairing: Kingsley/Luna, background Hermione/Ron, past Kingsley/OFC
Rating: General Audiences
Word Count: ~2,300

Author's Note: Thank you so much to the prompter for the lovely inspiration, to the mods for brilliantly running this awesome fest, and to [personal profile] capitu & [personal profile] firethesound for being the best betas I could ask for! <3

Another low WC week... *sigh* To be fair, I was at my mom's this weekend, which killed 3 writing days, and yesterday was a freaking INSANE day at work, which left little to no time and/or brain power for writing, so I really only wrote 3/7 days at all.

Happy half-birthday [personal profile] writcraft! You are one of my very favourite people and I cannot tell you how glad I am to have had the chance to get to know you over the past several years. You are so funny, kind, talented, wicked smart, and a truly wonderful friend. As a token of my sincere affection, I thought I'd gift you this little fucked-up bit of angst, because what better way to show somebody you care than to hurt the characters we both adore? Apparently I'm incapable of gifting somebody a normal fic, but given your love of darker themes, I really hope this hits the spot! Thank you for being an amazing human being and for always being around when I need a friend. ♥

Title: What I Do to You
Author: [personal profile] gracerene
Pairing: Draco/Harry, background Ron/Hermione, mentions of past Harry/Ginny
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~9,200
Content/Warnings: Alternating POV, Post-Second War with Voldemort, Auror Training, fucked-up Harry, issues of self-worth, some suicide ideation, PTSD, Harry and Draco are not dealing with their issues well (especially Harry), unhealthy coping mechanisms, Christmas (but not really in a happy way), hate!sex, semi-public!sex, floor!sex, consent issues/dubious consent, anal sex, rough sex, face-fucking, open/ambiguous/angsty ending
Summary: These days, apathy fogs Harry's mind. Malfoy's the only one who makes Harry feel anything at all. Harry doesn't really care that the feelings aren't good ones. He deserves it.

Notes: Thank you so much to the brilliant [personal profile] firethesound for reacting with enthusiastic grabby hands when I sent her the warnings for this fic and shamelessly begged politely asked if she'd be willing to beta it for me. And thank you as well to the equally brilliant [personal profile] birdsofshore for brit-picking and flailing. ♥

This fic was heavily inspired by Season 6 Buffy and her relationship with Spike. As such, the title for this fic is inspired by the below dialogue:

Spike: Do you even like me?

Buffy: Sometimes.

Spike: But you like what I do to you.

[Spike holds up a pair of handcuffs.]

Spike: Do you trust me?

Buffy: Never.

In case you missed it, [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant recently opened up it's most recent part game to celebrate their 13th birthday!



How it works is that you can pick any sexual theme you like and combine it with a location and an object from the lists they provide on the post. Rather than person, place, and thing, it's practice, place, and thing! Any character(s), any kink(s), anything goes! And fic only needs to be a minimum of 200 words, so it's perfect for something quick and dirty. :)

I loved the Wheel of Fornication from last year's celebration, and this seems like another fun game! I've already narrowed down a pairing, location, & object, but I am having a hard time coming up with a sexual theme/kink as we can pick whatever we want and that is too much for my brain!!

I'm planning to write some Albus Severus/Draco, so if any of you have any suggested kinks/sexual themes you'd like to see with them, please, please, please leave them below and hopefully help jump-start my muse! <3
