Story structure, How does this work again?, I r rite gud

Halp? (Beta Request...)

Right, so, um... My muse is a wonderful, horrible little thing. I've become very overdue with a fest fic and it's still growing. And it's time I found a beta, so that I'm not scrambling once I finish.

It's not quite done yet, but I fully expect it to be over 50k, possibly creeping up on 60k. (If it goes beyond that I will cry. Srsly.) The pairing is Harry/Draco, and it's for hd_smoochfest, so there is guaranteed a happy ending. There's one scene that lifts it up into the NC-17 realm. It's an anon-fest, so I can't really give anything else away to my f-list en masse. >.>;

I'd be fine with even just a SPaG beta, but if I you could add critique or even Brit-picking to that I would definitely not say no. If you'd like to help me out and receive my unending gratitude, praise, and worship forever more (:D), please shoot me a PM - or e-mail or gchat me at KattWhitewind(at)gmail(dot)com. :D

Smoochfest Claiming~~~!!!

Gah, I swear, choosing prompts is one of the most nerve-wracking things EVER! Especially with sooo many good ones this year over at hd_smoochfest! D:

But I finally whittled down my list from like...forty, to three. It only took me three or four hours. x_x;;; But the first two on my list gave me OMGIDEA world-glimpses right off the bat without even trying, so I think I'm good. :D

Now, this year's challenge: get it in before the deadline and not ask for any extensions! XD

Some Questions About BDSM and Clubs.

Yes, hello, I'm quite alive. *dusts off journal* Now then, I have a question for you, my darling f-listers.

See, I used to be an extremely shy individual. Truth be told, in groups of new people or people I don't think I share much in common with, I still am. That - coupled with Jerkface the Ex - led me to not really explore my interest in the BDSM community. Then my life was thankfully purged of that loser, but I rather lacked the courage to go to any such place on my own, as well as lacked the (local) friends who might be interested in going with me. So I let myself be too scared to investigate. And then, wonder of wonders, I met my darling Merlin and fell head over heels; only he's not really into that sort of thing, and too nice to even give me spankings. Le sigh. He is off in Basic Training right now, but I wouldn't feel right going to a BDSM party/club even to simply observe without him.

Thus, I have questions for you all, should you have any experience you'd like to impart.

What are the parties/clubs really like? I've read plenty of fic, but in all seriousness that doesn't necessarily translate to reality. Are there really people having sex off in the dark corners (or maybe front and center)? Are there special house-rules? Is it common (or even real) to have themed rooms for rent? What all is usually there in the club proper (bar, dancefloor, lounge, hot tub, rack, etc.)? Do any honestly employ Doms in-house? An RP that sadly never launched had hostesses and people who would help matchmake and/or draw up contracts - is that even remotely near truth? Is there ever such a thing as a house safeword? How would a party differ (or maybe a convention)? Are spectators allowed, or even welcomed? (I understand different clubs/parties/cons/etc. might be different, but it would be nice to know if any of this applies.)

I'm curious for two reasons. For one, knowing a bit more about the scene itself might make it less of a big, scary unknown (and I might eventually get to talking my soldier-boy into going with me into it, even just to look around). For two, I'd really like to write it. I'm utterly fascinated by it, and there's a handful of plotbunnies nibbling at me that I'm wary of picking up for the simple fact that I don't want to write something that is so far-fetched that anyone with experience would scoff at it. There's a(n at least) three-part original story that wants to dive into this world, as well as a fanfic or two that might like to brush through it.

Any input is welcome. Post anonymously if you like, or send me a PM if you are willing to share but don't want it out in the open. Links to resources on the topic are also more than welcome - I just don't know where to start looking. ^^; Anywho, this one bunny that's been pawing at me for a couple years has really pushed me to finally ask. :) Thank you so incredibly much, to anyone who cares to give input. (And if at any point you'd prefer me to screen your comment, just ask!) (...Or, if you think it's a better idea to screen the comments unless people say it's okay, let me know that too. :P)

OMG, Yay!

Yay, it's that time again!!! Prompting has opened up over at hd_smoochfest! Go over there and submit yours now!

I've made it my goal to write for this one every year, so who knows - maybe I'll get yours! :D I think I actually have a prompt that I'm not keen on writing myself this time too, haha! XD

Now, because I'm indecisive and can't choose because I like them both, have some shmancy banners! ;D

Now go spread the joy so later we can spread the love! X3

Hi darlings! I've got a lovely new comm to pimp to you all:




♥ Banner by phantisma! ♥



Sign-ups are open over at mpregbb for both authors and artists of all sorts! There is a SAD lack of H/D (and HP pairings in general!), but I thought you lovely ladies (...and gents?) might be up to the challenge of rectifying this! :D Plus, it'll help for all those 10k+ personal-fics that you just haven't gotten up the motivation for. ;D

They are actually in need artists/vidders/mixers especially - there's a more than 7:1 ratio of writers:artists! ^^;

Help!

Help! So I keep trying to solve the question over at Pottermore, but it just directs me to a Sony store page! WTF? Where's the quill? Is this normal?

*sad kitty eyes at those who have already done this*


Edit: Got it! Thank you, everyone! And WOW that was quick! XD ♥♥♥♥♥ to you all!

Hello!

*clings to LJ like a clingy thing of clingy-ness*

SOSOSO happy to have all my lovely people (and all the lovely fic and art!) back again!!!

Greetings to all the people I've now friended! Some of you I had read or seen around fandom but had been too shy to add you before, and some of you I don't think I'd ever seen until marguerite_26's awesome friending meme over on DW. :D

Um...I think that's it for now! I have tonnes of fic to catch up on, and a lot of coding to do so that I can continue posting up my hd_smoochfest entry chapters...and then my hd_relief entry... XD ...And then I have to work on the fics I signed up for at hp_zombiefest... ^^;;; *scurries off!*

Idea Poll.

Okay, so, I have this folder. It is labeled "Creative Stuff." Every now and then I go and poke at it (and usually add new stuff).

See, when I actually pick up an idea and commit to working on it, I seem to knock it out rather quickly. I think my issue with all of these that have been left to collect dust is that I see a wall of text and Word docs and have no idea where to start.

This is where you can help me my friends, f-listers, and occasional random people (hi!). Based on the tentative nicknames I've given these various ideas, click whatever ticky boxes (!) that pique your interest. No summaries, just based off the names. ;D Whatever happens to be leading at any point will become my main project (not to say I won't work on others, but this will give me direction). ((Note: All except two of the HP fics have H/D as a main pairing (and even then they're a background pairing). All Naruto prompts are NaruSasu. Original stuff is not generally smutty, but has a mix of het and slash relationships.))

TICKY BOXES OMG! 8DCollapse )


I'll leave this as a normal entry for a bit, then I'll make it so that it sits up at the top of my page.

...Yeah, WTF?, ...Say what?, I got nothin'

Huh. Interesting.

Something interesting I realized today, and wanted to share.

I've always wanted a tattoo, but I never really had anything I thought I could stand to permanently etch onto my body. I thought about maybe certain religious symbols - a pentacle, the triple moon, a triquetra, the tree of life, etc. - but I could never really decide what I would be comfortable with. Especially because as much as I love my religion, I know some of those would get me some funny looks, and I'm self-conscious like that.

Today, looking at the deathly hallows symbol, I realized that fuck yes I would tattoo that on myself. XD Now it's just a matter of deciding where while I accumulate funds. X3
