I want to mention couple of flawless things.

The first would be my gift fic for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide.

the after hours (6854 words) by andbless_mybaby
Fandom: American Horror Story
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Graphic Depiction of Violence, Major Character Death, Child Abuse, Homophobic Language, Misogyny (same as on the show, you know)
Relationship: Tate Langdon/Violet Harmon
Summary: Twelve scenes from the (after)life of Tate Langdon.


(Seriously though, why do I like Tate Langdon so much?)

Then there are the results of the Japanese Nationals (figure skating, people!). It's so going to be all GANBARE NIPPON at Worlds. The world teams is flawless: Daisha, Yuzuru and Taka-chan plus Mao, Kanako and Akiko. I do feel bad about Oda withdrawing but still so awesome.

I made a few bids in the [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fandom auction and already I've received a fic. A rather funny and lovely fic.

Go and read it if you like cute J2 AU fics.

Kiss Me I'm Irish by [livejournal.com profile] diabolical22 (R rated or thereabouts).

Like a lot of other good people, I have an embarrassment squick and upon seeing the still for this (this being a video of Jared and Jensen claiming they don't have any accounts on social media websites), the said squick spiked. But watching it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, maybe because Jared seems pretty OK with talking into what appears to be a camera phone camera in a badly lit trailer but Jensen kind of looks like a) he hasn't got his morning coffee yet and b) he'd rather have a colonoscopy than do this video. I feel ya, Jensen.

Got a part of my Christmas wish. A full night's sleep. Probably had something to do with the amount of akvavit, red wine and Bénédictine liqueur I consumed.

Then I woke up this morning to two lovely Yuletide fics meant for me.

First I have to mention the awesome A Bit of Fry and Laurie fic I received, featuring Tony and Control and written in script format. Funny and brilliant really. Go forth and read The Lingerie Massacres.

Then I received a fic that was so tailored made for me. Before I knew of such a thing as fandom and way before I knew about RPF, I totally shipped Robbie Williams/Mark Owen from Take That. And now I have a Robbie/Mark story written for me and it hits all kinds of spots for me. Yeah, just read Come On.

I think I'm off to read more Yuletide fic and maybe also enjoy my Christmas loot. And listen to Take That.

People, I'm stuffed. Both with great food and great fic.

OMG! [livejournal.com profile] yuletide! It's awesome. I was so lucky that I had the loveliest couple of Yuletide treats. Two adorable Grease fics with Kenickie and Danny being angsty and cute and slashy. Fade Out, Fade In and Greased Lightning.

The recipient of my fic seemed to like the fic so really it couldn't been better except for that fact that Yuletide means a tide of excellent fic. I've started bookmarking stuff, then I need to tag it and stuff on delicious.com. But I have to rec one fic now, The Running Order, a Drop the Dead Donkey fic where current events feature heavily.
hildigunnur: (ron et harry)
I think in my last three entries I've been talking about the [livejournal.com profile] triatha_ron and sorry, I haven't stopped. But I kind of have to rec today's bunch of fics.

For the gen team:

Cold Comfort by [livejournal.com profile] sarka. I can't tell you how much I like this fic. Of course I've been reading it on the various stages of production but I love the final outcome. A grown-up Ron (in his late forties - fifties even) and some unfinished business from the past - in Iceland! What could be better?

For my own team, the slash team:

A Routine Comfort by [livejournal.com profile] mamalaz. Mamalaz is one of the people responsible for me loving the Ron slash and she has now written a short fic which delievers some punches though. Excellent indeed!

And for the het team:

Cold Comfort by [livejournal.com profile] modestyrabnott. Oh so melancholy and full of longing. Beautiful piece.

But this post has to be about me as well and my fics.

The [livejournal.com profile] witchwinter masterlist was revealed today and I can inform you that I wrote a fic there.

Unexpected Smiles, NC-17, Hermione/Pansy. Written for [livejournal.com profile] harkskar.

The first real femmeslash fic I write. I'm still a bit afraid it's very cliché or something.
hildigunnur: (more paperwork)
I've just decided to stay some extra hours at work as my workload just increased. A LOT. In celebration of those wonderful news, I'm going to leave you with a meme and a couple of recs.

One meme from McTabby )

Zee recs, both fics by [livejournal.com profile] misspince.

The first chapter of Elísar Saga - AU LotRips. Well, I've kind of know about this story for some time and I couldn't be more excited about it. When I say a story is well-worth the read if only for the landscape descriptions, then I'm saying this story is great. The real meat is probably the plot because it will be in true saga style with deaths and revenge and general mayhem.

Then there's a slightly smaller rec. A Firefly ficlet. Simon Tam in eyeliner. Do I need to say more?
hildigunnur: (johnny depp)
I'm not a master at rec'ing (if there's such a thing as being a rec'ing master). But I like doing it and I even have a giant rec post which is also for my convenience as I collect my favourite fics there with a little commentary. Incidentally I updated said post earlier with over 20 stories, mostly HP but I think a couple of The O.C. fics found their way into it.

Besides the rec post, I've participated in [livejournal.com profile] themorningstarr's Twelve Months of Smut Challenge and now have posted recs of eleven months though sometimes they weren't quite on time. The Dec 2005 recs aren't on time but what the hell, I think you can live with getting them tonight instead. If you are interested in them, just check this link.

When I was updating the giant rec post, I saw I keep a lot to reading the same authors or I simply like everything some people write *glances at [livejournal.com profile] mad_maudlin and [livejournal.com profile] thetreacletart*.

But I decided to end the Twelve Months of Smut with a bang. With posting recs for a ship I normally shy from.

Yes, it's time again for the Twelve Months of Smut recs. And this time around it's Ron/Hermione.

The Fic )

Off to have a nice and hot bath and then try to finish up my [livejournal.com profile] rwhgfqf fic. The deadline is today (oops?).
hildigunnur: (o. b.)
Again it slipped my mind to do the Twelve Months of Smut recs on time. Here are the recs for October.

Ask me what happens after the end of one of my stories.

I may have more than one answer depending on the story.

Or tell me your own theories.

Very short

I saw Super Size Me today. Then I ate salad for dinner.

And here are the Twelve Months of Smut recs for May and this time I have a theme!

ATTENTION: My more recent recs can be found in my del.icio.us tag - HERE.

After having been involved in the Harry Potter fandom for more than three years, I've become highly eccentric in my tastes. I remember the old days when I couldn't get enough, I read and read and read a bit more. Still there came a time where I was full and I acquired certain tastes, became picky. Picky on ships, genres etc. Still I try to have an open mind but today I don't waste my time on something I might or mightn't like. So I go for the better odds, something I will probably like.

Anyway, what exactly do I read?

Harry Potter Recommendations )

I'm not a monogamous fandomer though I really don't participate in other fandoms. I usually have short flings or visit them every now and then.

Other Fandoms Recommendations )

So all there is left to say is: read and enjoy.
