[personal profile] sdk posting in [community profile] firewhiskeyfic
Welcome to the July 2017 Harry Potter 20th Anniversary edition of [community profile] firewhiskeyfic! We, your Mods - [personal profile] sdk and [personal profile] torino10154, are so glad you could make it. We love everyone tonight. Feel free to friend us on DW. We promise not to stalk you... much.

Your challenges for this month are:

Harry Potter

Mirror of Erised

Room of Requirement

Anniversary

"What do you mean, I'm not brave in bed?"


Incorporate one or more into your fic/art somehow, and you're good to go!

As you know, this is the Official Discussion Post. If you feel like chatting, and we hope you do, pop in here and let us know how it's going.

And just so we're clear, you don't have to write pr0n, though it definitely makes for interesting reading when characters change right in the middle of shagging because you're too drunk to remember who you're writing about. ;) You can write for any fandom (including original), but keep in mind the majority of our players are HP people. Anything goes!

Once you are semi-conscious, send your UNBETA'D UNCORRECTED fic to this email: fwfdrunkmods@gmail.com Trust me, we can tell if you've messed with it, so don't do it, m'kay?

You will receive an email from us confirming that we got it. If you don't get an email, we didn't get it. Your fics/art will be due by noon on Monday, July 24th. Voting will begin later that evening and last until Saturday July 29th at midnight.

HERE IS THE HEADER! You can put this in the email body or the fic body. Whatever!

(please fill this out to the best of your ability. If you're unable, we will try to complete it for you)


In order to make things easiest on your poor, likely hungover mods, please put your DW or LJ username and (if you can manage) the title of your fic/art into your subject line or at least somewhere in the body of the email. Thank you!

Please do not discuss your fic/art. You can discuss ideas, drinks, how wasted you are, your favorite scene in the books, what the movies got right (or wrong), or whatever floats your boat. Just don't discuss your fic/art. This is an anonymous fest until after the reveal, and we don't want hints being given as to what you're writing about.

Shelly's starting off with Redd's Apple Ale while Torino will be arriving late but has gin chilling. How about you folks?

Let's get your drunk on!

...on Thursday. And this'll probably be my last wordcount post for a little while, because Life Stuff. Oh, Life Stuff. I am ready for you to be finished.

New words this week : 384 words and my July wordcount goal is met with 1814 / 1000. I upped that to 2500 words last week, knowing that'd be a stretch, and yep, not going to make it. I would like to break 2k, though, but this afternoon is basically all the writing time I'll have in the near future, so. Maybe?

WIPs worked on this week : 2, no new WIPs (yay!)

HP
You Believe in Love, I Believe in Fate aka Erised attempt #1 from 2015 : 51 words bringing the total up to 19179. Used this as a warm-up again.

pwp take 2 : 333 words which brings the total to 1377 words, and there is a blowjob-in-progress. Smut is progressing! Maybe I will finish this thing sometime this year!


July Reading : As of yesterday, I'm up to 1,405,642 and I'm quitting there because I know that's not an accurate number and it bothers me. I've started to do a lot of comfort reading, where I go back to fics I've read and loved and then skip through to read my favorite bits of them. I estimated as best I could, but it's impossible to get an accurate number anymore. I might try tracking this again in a different calmer month.

As many of you know, I've been participating in [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant since 2007. And, with the exception of the year of cancer, I haven't missed many months.
So I thought I'd compile some wacky statistics and see how that all has shaken out so far.

For me, the big draw of DD is to be able to write pairings and kinks I normally wouldn't. Things like The Fat Lady/Molly Weasley, or Wormtail wanking while in rat form (LMAO). And yes, I even managed copraphagy (scat) once.

Anyway, I figured I'd do some calculations and see just how much I rely on my OTP for DD.
And since I consider Harry/Draco my secondary OTP, I figured I'd throw them into the calculation, too. ;)

Out of 113 total posts, I have written 23 Snarry fics, 9 Harry/Draco, and 4 Drapery. Which means about 20% of the time I write my OTP, H/D is 7%, and Drapery is 3%. That puts me at around 30% overall.
And, considering I often write my OTP for DD when desperate (I call it committing emergency Snarry *g*), that's not too bad, IMO.
FYI, I left out fics with background Snarry (where they are just mentioned as couple, but not the focus of the story).

Writing 70% 'other stuff' counts as being adventurous as far as I'm concerned. *g*

Right, how about you guys?
Especially those of you in DD, let's see your stats. I'm curious!

I'm back, alive and whole, which is a trend I love coming from vacations. :)

I had a lovely time and saw beautiful places. Man, Aruba! That's the place to live. Mark my words, I'm going to retire there.

I saw dolphins at the sea! Like, we had a little window in our cabin that I made my reading nook because I'm a nerd that spend most of her time reading \o/ and I looked out and hey, dolphins! They followed the ship just a few minutes but it was beyond awesome.

I missed you so, so much! How have you been? I'm going to try to catch up – I already did with some verses I'm following (see me being a nerd ^^) but it's a slow process. ^^ Tell me what you've been up to!

I cannot believe I missed prompting for [livejournal.com profile] hp_creatures and [livejournal.com profile] hd_fanart. I was so sure I had a day or two after I came back or else I'd left my prompts to be prompted by proxy as I've done in the past. :((((( But I'm excited because there are super cool prompts.

And [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised sign-ups open next Friday! Yep, that Friday 28th. ;) ;) ;) It's going to be a blast this year, and I hope to see you there. <3

Last night, I finished reading Inspector Specter by EJ Copperman. It's part of the author's "Haunted Guesthouse" mystery series.

Innkeeper Alison's nemesis, Detective Anita McElone, comes to ask Alison for help. Although it pains her, because she doesn't believe in ghosts, McElone wants Alison to see if she can communicate with the ghost of her former police partner, who has died under mysterious circumstances.

Alison goes to Ferry's apartment, but he doesn't remember much about his death. However, he is able to provide information on cases he was working before he died, and Alison uses that as a starting point for her investigation. It would be simpler if she could talk to McElone, but the good detective seems to have disappeared, at least, according to her husband, she has. Now Alison must solve Detective Ferry's murder, find Detective McElone, and run her guesthouse, all while babysitting for her best friends' baby while they go away for a romantic cruise.

The story was fun, but not utterly engrossing. The plot seemed a bit convoluted, as Alison was dashing to and fro, trying to put the pieces together. Not helping is that one of her resident ghosts, Maxie, was acting even more odd than she normally does.

Favorite lines:
♦ There was a time when this sort of negotiation could have been done quickly and efficiently in a fraction of the time with actual conversation between the two parties, but technology had now advanced us to a point where a simple exchange could take half an hour.
♦ Babies are terrific audiences; they think the same joke is hilarious four thousand times in a row.
♦ If he'd been holding a stick and yelling something in fake Latin, he could have been one of Melissa's friends playing Harry Potter.


Not my favorite in this series. Only giving it a three:

I was halfway through my train commute today when it went like this:


 
 
My Body: Oh! You're in trouble!
 
My Brain: What are you talking about? I had oatmeal for breakfast this morning.
 
Body: Haha! Are you sure? 'Cause I think you had a jar of Ghost Peppers instead!
 
Brain: WTF!? No! I had oatmeal! Oatmeal, do you hear me!
 
Body: Muahahaha! And just how many stops is it before you get off?
 
Brain: **whimpers**
 
 
 
So, yeah, while no actual carnage ensued in public, thanks be, I was still most emphatically not happy. What a great way to start my week. Don't you agree?
