Come On In, The Door's Unlocked...

This is the journal of Gamma Orionis. It is a place of Harry Potter, of villains, of fanfiction and community promotion and memes and whatever else I want it to be. Do sit down and have a cup of tea, won't you?

Transformative works statement:
I give blanket permission to creators of transformative works (including but not limited to podfic, remixes, translations, fanvids, mixes and art) to create work based on my writing, but please credit/link my original work (it can be as simple as "this was inspired by [personal profile] gamma_orionis ") and pop me a message when it's up so that I can admire and link it. I'll be very happy and excited, I promise!

[community profile] incestbigbang OH MY GOD.

IT'S A BIG BANG FOR (same-gen, ie sibling and cousin) INCEST.

Gamma must partake.

Now, to decide: Bellatrix/Narcissa? Bellatrix/Andromeda/Narcissa?  Rodolphus/Rabastan? Bellatrix/Sirius? Something else?

Are you sick of me yet?


[community profile] queer_fest is open for prompting! It's a fest dedicated to queer characters (well, duh), and YOU SHOULD GO PROMPT BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME.

The masterlist is up at [ profile] dysfuncentine, which makes me happy because I have fic to read for it :3 It's awesome to see so many rare pairs...! TWO DRACO/LUNA FICS AND NO DRACO/HARRY; WHAT ALTERNATE UNIVERSE HVE I STEPPED INTO? Take a look at the masterlist here.


[ profile] hp_prisonerfest is open for sign-ups! It's an exchange based on prisoner relationships, and it's pretty much the most awesome thing ever. It was the first fest I ever participated in on LJ, and it's where I met [ profile] flyingharmony (who made the gorgeous banner!) so there's all sorts of emotional connections to it for me :3

Finally, Month #1 of the Harry Potter Femmeslash Project has just come to a close. 48 femmeslash fics were written for it (!!) and I'm going to be reading them all quite soon...

The masterlist for February is here; take a look! All sorts of pairings and genres have been represented!

Gamma is sick.

Stomach flu, I think.

Here, have a gif of Ginny and Parvati dancing.

Maybe it's just that the sickness has messed with my head, but I could watch that for hours.

5 Disney Squee Icons

I felt like making a couple icons (instead of doing actual work *shifty eyes*) and everyone needs a squeeing icon, so.

Enjoy them :3

25 Emilie Autumn Bases

I felt like looking at some pictures and doing something not too brain-killing, so I've made some EA bases for people to either use as icons or alter to make into way better icons :D

All the pictures are from the Enchant era, since that's my favourite era from her... she just looked so beautiful and mystical in all the pictures, and the album is so I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT. So.

Somebody called me a paranoid angel... )

A Question for my Friends +other things

So, I was reading [community profile] fandomsecrets today and there was a secret about thinking that it's plagiarism/theft for a fanfiction writer to write something about fanart without the artist's permission is near enough to theft. So now I'm curious: what do you guys think about this? Do you think that fans (who are borrowing from an original creator) have a right to say that nothing can be borrowed from them? Or borrowed only with personal permission? What do you think about people borrowing things from your work? Are you in favour of having transformative works created based on your stuff, or not?

I know that I personally squee like a little idiot whenever someone creates something based on something I wrote (one of the reasons I love big bangs so much), so I'm curious to hear your thoughts :)

Also, tumblr rec time! [ profile] simplypotterheads is a new Harry Potter tumblr and there's LOTS OF NIFTINESS GOING ON THERE, GUYS; YOU KNOW HOW GAMMA LOVES NIFTINESS.  Also, it's doing Slytherin-themed posts right now, so lots of Slytherin things!  

Oh hey, also, Gamma has a tumblr question: Why is there an option to "ignore" a user?  Does this serve some function that just unfollowing them won't?  Anyone here who knows tumblr better than me...?

 My dad just bought me and my brother a pet mouse.


But I'm excited!

If the mouse is male, we're naming it Hamlet, and if it's female, we're naming it Nancy.

Three brief things

First, I'd like to say hi and welcome to everyone who I've added recently (yay friending memes!) I look forward to getting to know all of you :)

Second, week three of [ profile] darkarts_drabs is now open for sign-ups. The subject for this week is Severus Snape and "Advanced Potion Making", and last week, only two people participated in the challenge (I was one of them), so these should be good enough reasons for you to try it out :) Sign up here.

Third, prompt claiming at [ profile] hprarefest is open! In addition to a huge number of awesome prompts, you can also choose to write your own prompt for any rare pair. The claiming post is here, the rules/FAQ are here and the banned pairings list is here.  Both art and fic are welcome, and I'm particularly hoping for a lot of femmeslash this year ;)

WIP Meme

Because, once again, my writing has gotten away from me. So unusual for Gamma, right?

So I snitched this meme from [ profile] etacanis :)

Post a random sentence (or three whole paragraphs) from every WIP you're currently working on, even if it's very short. Then invite people to ask questions about your WIP. With any luck, you'll get talking about writing, and the motivation to take that WIP one step closer to completion will appear as if by magic!

Format: Title (or brief description) || Pairing
