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

So I snitched this meme from [livejournal.com 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!

LJ Is Alive!
A Multifandom LiveJournal Friending Meme
Tumblr is great, but my fandom heart is in LJ.



(Hello and welcome to [livejournal.com profile] pinkelephant42 and [livejournal.com profile] ragdoll :))
gamma_orionis: Image of the constellation "Orion" (Default)
Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them.
Done - ish.  Instead of introducing myself to people, I went around and left comments on fics by people I don't know. I love getting comments on fics from random strangers (especially older fics), so hopefully this made people happy :)

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.
Oh, this is a fun one! ♥

Personal Wishes
  • Transformative works based on anything I've written. Art, podfic, remixes, covers and banners... anything! I'd love anything!
  • Reviews and comments, especially on little-reviewed/little-commented works
  • Recs for Bellatrix/Lily smut... I can never seem to find any!
  • Someone other than me to write Lucius/Alice, Rodolphus/Rabastan, Rodolphus/Narcissa, Druella/Abraxas and/or Lucius/Peacock ;)
  • UNBELIEVABLE LEVELS OF PERSONAL FAME I mean what?
Fandom Wishes
  • A constant onslaught of fests, big bangs and exchanges! I can never have enough!
  • More love for rarer pairs. I'd like rare pair fests and comms to be more popular, and my biggest wish is for rare pairs to be prompted more in all-pairing fests (*sighs at all the Hermione and Harry and Snape and Draco and Weasleys*)
  • More love for Bellamort
  • More love for femmeslash
  • Are these unreasonable wishes?
  • People to continue writing Harry Potter fic, making communities, participating in fests, commenting, reccing and squeeing!

Day One

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

Right, well, first thing, digging through the obscene amount that I've written was definitely the fun part of this one. I tried very hard to narrow it down to three, but I couldn't, so you're actually getting seven. Sorry...

Anyhow, let's get started.

These are the five works that, if everything else about me was forgotten, I'd want to have people remember. These are five that, not only do I consider my more solid work, but that more or less span the range of what I write. If I wanted to give people a good idea of the sort of things I write, these would be what I'd think about.

1. Ghost of a Rose (Rabastan/Andromeda, Rabastan/Voldemort). Okay, funny thing about this one, it's actually a companion to a similar story called Autumn Sky that I wrote before, which I would have considered one of my defining works before I wrote this. At first, I didn't like how this was going at all, but it picked up momentum as I went. I consider this a bit of a bridge between Autumn Sky and Les Étrangers - a bridge between my older, relatively light, more action-focussed style and my newer, darker, more character/world-building-based style.

2. Darkest Romance (Bellatrix/Voldemort). No Gamma!list would be complete without Bellamort, after all. Darkest Romance is a drabble collection, which is a genre that I have a beautiful love-hate relationship with on account of loving drabbles but rarely having the patience to finish collections. Darkest Romance isn't anything new or innovative, I don't think, but it is pretty much the prototypical example of Bellamort.

3. Roses Lie Waiting (Narcissa). This is where I started to get really quite morbid in my writing. Up until this point, I primarily wrote angsty but ultimately non-traumatizing stories about unpleasant moments in peoples' lives, and this remains one of the darkest things I've written, rivalled only by Cassiopeia's Asylum. Roses Lie Waiting was also the first time that I really started creating head!canon for the Black family that remained consistent for any period of time, and it irrevocably changed my opinion on Cygnus Black. *Shudders*

4. Fascination of the Darkest Kind (Lily Luna). I've gone on about this one before, so I'll be brief. This is where I started getting autobiographical, where I started exploring not only the twisted psyches of my characters, but also of myself, taking my own thoughts, neuroses and obsessions to their logical conclusion at a level higher than what they'd reached in me. I'm working on a longer, more detailed version of this story, and if I was anywhere near done, I'd put it in this slot, but it's not, so.

5. Innocent (Luna). This also goes in the category of "feels like no one ever saw" :P This was rather experimental for me - I don't often write Luna's point of view (because DAMN, she's difficult), but the idea of writing Luna, not as the quirky, cheerful character she is in OotP and HBP, but more as a rather disturbed, socially isolated, emotionally undeveloped, slightly creepy character with a very poor grasp of how to interact with others (which, at times, she kind of is)... that appealed to me. I want to work with that character more, but Innocent was the reason I became interested in it in the first place.


Day Two
In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

In the interest of fairness, of course, I've chosen to do five of these as well. These don't have any particular theme - they're just fanworks that I keep going back to over and over again.

1. Dancing in Snow (Luna). AAWWWWWW. LOOK AT LUNA AND HER LILAC CLOTHES AND HER HAT AND HER RADISH EARRINGS AND HER HAIR AND THE SNOWFLAKES AND JUST SQUEEEEEEEEE ♥ I can't even say anything coherent about this, it just makes me feel so happy and wintery and wanting of Luna's coat.

2. Pansy/Blaise and I'm not sure if this has a title. Delphine, darling, does it? *Ahem* Let me just make clear from the start that nearlyconscious is A FABULOUS ARTIST and everything she touches is gorgeous. I especially like this because it's also funny on so many different levels (which get progressively more wrong the longer you think about it, so that's always good!). Do check out her fanart tag and look at everything else too :)

3. Marked for Death (Death Eaters). It's a little disturbing to go back and read this now and realize how much this one story shaped me. I read it before I got into the fandom properly, when I was just dipping my toes in in secret and it... wow. Details about the characterization (Rabastan, most notably, but the other characters as well) were parts of my head!canon when I started writing, and they only became better-established as I went on. The world is fantastic, the characters are fantastic, and unlike most things in the "humour" category in ff.net, it's legitimately funny. I owe a lot to this story, and everyone should read it.

4. My Immortal by Zenia Wulfe (Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way). Okay, the first couple of videos in this series are... not so great, but then Zenia Wulfe hits her stride and these become ONE OF THE BEST ADAPTATIONS OF MY IMMORTAL THAT I'VE EVER SEEN. I consider My Immortal deeply hilarious, and the art going along with them is brilliant.

5. Rising Up (Draco/Luna). Hey, friends, do YOU like getting your heart torn out and stomped into the ground? Do you feel an urge to inject more heartbreak into your life? If so, you should read this. I won't go into too much detail for fear of spoiling it, but... tears were shed over this.

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a happy New Year ♥ My first day of 2013 was horribly marred by the worst menstrual cramps I've ever had in my life, but I suppose things could be worse... ah, well.

Also, I've made the default tiny icon for my journal a tiny little Bellatrix :) I would be using it as my own userhead, except that I don't think I can, either because I'm not paying for this account in any way at all, or because I'm not very bright. But yeah... you're all little Bellatrixes now.

I'm trying to resist the urge to do a gazillion memes in the new year because I actually want to do productive things instead... but...

[1] Your top ten character ships (any order).
[2] A picture of the pairing.
[3] Why the pairing draws you (briefly).

Gamma is Gamma; several of the pictures are NSFW )

My most-shipped characters were... Lucius, Luna, Bellatrix, Lily and Rodolphus. Each of them was in two different pairings, which I think means that I'm a relatively well-rounded shipper, character-wise. ^_^
Six of the ten pairings were het, one was femmeslash, one was slash, one was... bestiality (slash bestiality, though?)... and one could be either het or femmeslash. \o/ Variety!

The first ten people to comment in this post (*cough* on account of this cross posting thing, I won't actually be too fussy about the ten - but if you see ten comments already on your chosen platform, then you might just have to wait until I do this again) get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet, draw a sketch, or create a fanmix of any pairing or character of your choosing. In return, you are challenged to post this in your own journal, regardless of your ability level- or not as you wish.

Harry Potter's obviously my strength, but if you want to request The Crucible or pretty much any Shakespeare play, there's a good chance I'll be able to come up with something ;)

FUN, RIGHT? Distract me from NaNo and my various fests and big bangs, sweethearts!

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad tohave you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

Comment with a pairing and I’ll tell you:
  • Who cooks normally?:
  • How often do they fight?:
  • What do they do when they’re away from each other?:
  • Nicknames for each other?:
  • Who is more likely to pay for dinner?:
  • Who steals the covers at night?:
  • What would they get each other for gifts?:
  • What crime would they commit together?:
  • Who made the first move?:
  • Who remembers things?:
  • Who is the big spoon/little spoon?:
  • Who swears more?:
  • What would they do if the other one was hurt?:
  • What are their bad couple habits?

  • Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
  • Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
  • Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
  • This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

Icons are pretty, yes they are... )

I'm celebrating my highly productive day (I swear I opened up some sort of rift in the space-time continuum because I had time to go shopping, go to the library, do [livejournal.com profile] hogsmeadewkends things, write the next chapter of one of my multi-chapter stories, finish [livejournal.com profile] hp_sexstars (pretty much wrote 3K) and review 75 fics and I still have an hour before I need to sleep) with this meme.  Which I snitched from [livejournal.com profile] pretty_panther :)

A - ACCENT: Canadian, naturally.  I don't think I have an accent at all, but apparently, according to other people, I have an "Alberta twang".  I'm not sure how I feel about having a "twang"...
