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?

[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!

Good for Nothing )
gamma_orionis: Image of Esther from "Orphan".  Text reads "I'm a homicidal manic.  They look just like everyone else". (Homicidal Maniac)
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.

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

Enjoy them :3
gamma_orionis: Image of the constellation "Orion" (Default)
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... )
gamma_orionis: Image of "No work and no play" from "The Shining".  Text reads "I read your psychotic fanfic". (Psychotic fanfic)
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.

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 ;)

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!

I'll admit, at first, I wasn't too jazzed about the prompts that were being left... they just weren't inspiring me much. But some of the recent ones have sent me into a "WRITE ALLLLL THE PROMPTS" state, and I'm actually going to have a hard time picking what to do :D (Draco/Luna? Bellatrix/Lily? Hermione/Viktor?)

Make it even harder for me to choose. Go on. I dare you ;)

The Heroine Big Bang is back!
[ profile] heroinebigbang was the first big bang I ever did (I did it last year and wrote "Roses Lie Waiting", which is still one of my favourite things that I've written) and I'm extremely excited to see it coming back! It's a 15 000 word big bang where works must centre around a female main character, which means that everyone should do it because there always needs to be more female-centric work in the fandom! :D

There's also another big bang - run by the same person who's doing the heroine big bang - that's just announced itself. [ profile] villainbigbang is also a 15K big bang, and the theme for it is (obviously) villains. I'd love to see Voldemort and the Death Eaters get some representation there, guys! :D

Third big bang thing: [ profile] kink_bigbang is still looking for artists! There are a great variety of stories and fandoms that still need to be claimed including mine - it would be wonderful if those with some artistic skill could pop out and participate :D
gamma_orionis: Image of Esther from "Orphan".  Text reads "I'm a homicidal manic.  They look just like everyone else". (Homicidal Maniac)
First off, I'm now done the first semester of my last year in high school (thank GOD, finally!) and aside from, ahem, forgetting to hand in a few psych assignments (and, um, one or two English assignments <.< >.>) I think everything went okay. I've spent the last two weeks running around trying to do damage control (read: hand in the more important assignments for those classes), but now I'll finally be able to get caught up with gifting/reading/reviewing/posting/etc. YAY!

Now, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to anyone and everyone who voted in [ profile] hpfanficfanpoll, because results went up today, and...

I'm so excited that "Her Lips Were Sweet" won first place - weirded out too, I'll admit! :D I popped "Her Lips Were Sweet" off in about twenty minutes for a femmeslash competition, and this is now the second award it's won (third, in a way, since one of the awards it won had two different tiers...). Odd xD No complaints, though! And I issue enormous congratulations to everyone else whose work was nominated and/or placed in the awards! :D

NOW LOOK LOOK AT THE PRETTY THING [ profile] flyingharmony MADE FOR ME!!!

There's something extra-special about Crucible-themed gifts that just makes me grin extra-wide (not that HP gifts don't make me grin extra-wide, of course!) Also, DAMN, Daniel Day-Lewis is just mmmmm! I totally get why Abigail would go about killing half the village for him ;)

Claiming at [ profile] dysfuncentine is open! There are a lot of really amazing prompts ready to be claimed - every conceivable pairing, plus lots of "any" ones. Go here for the prompt list/claiming post!

[ profile] femmefest still needs more participants - it makes Gamma sad to see so few people signing up for such an awesome exchange. I will never understand why femmeslash is so underrepresented, but y'all should help fix that ;) (It makes me very happy to see so many people on my f'list signed up already, by the way - I hope I get to write for one of you!)

Posting is on for the winter fest at [ profile] rarepair_shorts, and SOMEONE WROTE ME LUCIUS/ALICE HOW DO I EVEN EXPRESS MY HAPPINESS?  Lucius/Alice is one of the absolute rarest pairings of the many rare pairings that I ship - by which I mean that up until now, exactly no one except me (to my knowledge) ever written a real romance involving them.  NO ONE.  It's here and you should all read it :)  (Also, I bet none of you can guess what I wrote for the exchange... *giggles*).  I'm going to go through and try to read them all later...

So, how are you all?
