Shippy Meme!

Saw this in [info]tabakat's journal; thought it looked fun.

a. Name your 10 absolutely favourite fandom ships (try to pick different fandoms).
b. Ask people to see what trends and similarities they notice about your ships.

The Top Ten:
1. Harry/Ginny (Harry Potter)
2. Ichigo/Orihime (Bleach)
3. Doctor/Rose (mostly Ten/Rose, but I also like TenII/Rose, Eleven/Rose, Nine/Rose, Eight/Rose, Five/Rose, Four/Rose, and before-he-was-old-looking!One/Rose) (Doctor Who)
4. Sid/Cassie (Skins)
5. Ron/Hermione (Harry Potter)
6. Renji/Rukia (Bleach)
7. Chris/Jal (Skins)
8. Naomi/Emily (Skins)
9. Tony/Michelle (Skins)
10. Neville/Luna (Harry Potter)

Because I have more than only ten favorites... )

Icon post of massive proportions.
[118] Doctor Who
[16] Dollhouse
[17] Harry Potter
[53] True Blood
[204] Total

A lot of these were for various icontests. What I usually do with icontests is make a whole bunch of icons for one challenge and then choose the best of the bunch to enter. So, some of these challenges will have more icons than necessary.

HP Canon Fic/Art Challenge

I've posted a Canon, "Missing Moment" Fic/Art Challenge at [info]wild_card. (If you don't know, [info]wild_card is a new multi-fandom, anything goes, fic/art/graphics challenge asylum. For details, go here.)

(also posted in [info]socanon_hp, [info]potter_fans, [info]harry_potter, and [info]weasley_loving)

New HP Asylum Archive (Asylum)

I didn't start it, but it seems like a neat idea to me. [info]hp_index is an asylum for posting listings for any and all HP asylums. All you have to do is post an entry with the pertinent information (see this link for details) and your asylum will be listed at [info]hp_indexarchive. I've already done [info]socanon_hp there, so if you have an asylum, you should post yours there too.

[14] Christmas Icons
{10} General Hospital (two non-seasonal)
{3} Harry Potter
{2} Heroes
{1} Twilight

If you happen to like any of these and want to see more like them, just request what you'd like in a comment and I'll work on it for you.

You know, the first time I ever read anything from fandom_wank it was The Ms.Scribe Story in bad_penny by charlottelennox. And I thought that was fucking hilarious. I've got the fandom_wank rss feed friended (or whatever) here, so I get to witness the wank reports when they come. Have y'all seen the Snapefen wank (complete with a "bugfuck bonkers" theory and everything)? I probably shouldn't find this hilarious, but I do. Well, the bits I've read anyway (I'm too lazy to go and see just what all the bugfuck bonkers Snapefen have been arguing about). I just can't get over the "JKR hates Snape" bit. Yeah, she hates him so much she had Harry memorialize him by giving his kid a possibly traumatic name Snape's name. What more do they want?

Go check it out, though. It's funny (unless you're one of the Snapefen).

If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all...

(see subject) Especially when reviewing a fic. I don't mean you shouldn't criticize. I mean don't insult or criticize without mentioning anything constructive. Don't just say you don't like a certain fic without any real reason. Give a legitimate reason; pick apart what you think is wrong with the fic; point it out to the author. Why? Because not only are you not reserving a seat in the ASSHOLE section of life, you're also doing something beneficial to another human being. By giving actual criticism and not just "Dude, this sucks" or "I hate fics like this" you are helping that author become a better writer. Seriously.

What brought on this rant? This right here )

Sorry for that bit of tl;dr and ranting. One of my biggest pet-peeves is intentional rudeness aimed to upset and degrade the target of said rudeness.

*crosses eyes*

Damn sinus infections that hang on indefinitely. I'm practically done with my antibiotics and I'm still coughing stuff up. (Sorry if that's TMI.) At least I can breath out of my (thankfully unchafed) nose now. Well, most of the time, anyway.

In other news, I got my mom to watch season one of Hex and she really liked it. Whee! She also likes Torchwood fairly well. Yay for BBC America!

On a completely unrelated note, I've been reading a lot of "Harry goes back in time to change the outcome of the war because it totally sucked and damn near everybody is dead" fics. That and the ones where Harry and Ginny get together early on because fate intervenes or something occurs in a slightly different way than it did in canon. My favorites in this vein are:

Harry Potter and the Nightmares of Futures Past by Viridian
Summary: The War is over and Voldemort is finally dead. Too bad there's no one left to celebrate. Harry risks everything, even returning Voldemort to life, for a chance to go back and do it right this time.
Rating: PG-13
34 chapters, WIP

Harry Potter and Fate's Debt by intromit
Summary: Eleven year old Harry Potter is waiting to leave for Hogwarts. While he is waiting for the Dursleys to wake, he finds a letter addressed to him...from himself. It has a simple message: Get to know Ginny Weasley.
Rating: PG-13
22 chapters, WIP

The Meaning of One by Sorvan
Summary: If two people are deliberately created to be together, how will the challenges in a world of magic and Dark Lords be dealt with? What would it mean for two people to truly become one? When a prophecy is involved, who will be The Chosen One? A re-imagination of canon, starting with first year.
Rating: R
Series, WIP
Meaning of One, Part One: The Philosopher's Stone
26 chapters, Complete
Meaning of One, Part Two: Chambers and Secrets
8 chapters, WIP

If you've read these and know of any similar (in subject matter, ship, and quality) let me know.

Aug. 13th, 2007


Title: Years
Rated: Completely Un-Naughty
Summary: Events from Ginny Weasley's perspective over the years she's known Harry Potter.
Pairings: Harry/Ginny (and other Deathly Hallows canon pairings)
Word count: 1,138
Note: I began writing this Pre-DH and finished the last two sections after reading DH, so THERE ARE SPOILERS! One-shot.

Years )

Beast of Burden

Title: Beast of Burden
Author: [info]brimac13
Rating: Not Naughty
Pairings: Canon (Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, and Lupin/Tonks)
Spoilers: None really.
Summary: Drunk karaoke love.
Word Count: Around 1,052, counting the lyrics.
Disclaimer: I don’t own anything HP related nor do I own Beast of Burden. The former belongs to J.K. Rowling while the latter belongs to the Rolling Stones. Also, the lyrics were taken from Sing365.com.
Author’s notes: This is a songfic, but only because of the karaoke. It also takes place sometime after Hogwarts. And, yes, I am aware that this has (probably) been done before, but, no, I’m not actively plagiarizing. Also, this hasn’t been beta read as it’s just a silly drabble.

Beast of Burden )

Friend Of Mine

Title: Friend of Mine
Rated: Rather Naughty
Summary: Ginny Weasley’s life is about to be turned upside down.
Word count: 3,291 (according to Word, that is)
Characters/Ships: Seamus/Ginny, past Draco/Ginny, Harry/Ginny, Seamus/Dean
Notes, etc.: This was written for the sorting__hat End of Term Challenge, the requirements being one het pairing, one slash pairing, a scene set at the Hogwarts’ lake, and over 600 words. The title comes from an Eve 6 song and the entire fic was "inspired" by several other Eve 6 songs (among them "Showerhead" and "On the Roof Again".)

[Just so you know, which you probably already do anyway, I don't own this. At all.]

Friend of Mine )


Author: [info]brimac13
Title: Jealousy
Summary: Too much studying and not enough relaxing can sometimes ever-so-slightly unhinge a person.
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Mostly fluff with a speck of angst
Word Count: 596 (so says Word)
Notes/Warnings: Massive thanks go out to antosha_c for being awesome and beta reading this fic for me.

This was written for the 3rd wave ficathon at hpgw_ficafest on livejournal. My challenge was: Michael Corner (Student/Professor in the Library)/ Scene from canon: the chocolate in the library scene on pages (in the US, paperback edition) 654-656 of OotP.
