I wanted to spotlight a few comms that need more love, and will happily take recs for more comms to join/subscribe! I didn't put fest comms on this list (maybe another time?) as most of the ones I've tracked down over here seem to be back ups and not active, which tbh is pretty frustrating. (Shoutout to [community profile] hd_fan_fair  for having prompt posting & claiming simultaneously on LJ and DW.)

[community profile] underheard - a multifandom rec comm for underappreciated fanfiction 
[community profile] puppylove - remus/sirius central that nobody has posted in for years (sigh)
[community profile] yurionicefans - general yuri on ice comm open for everyone, also hosts challenges 
[community profile] weasleyjumpers - the Weasleys, will have a fest later in the summer 
[community profile] daily_snitch - just for the record bc the snitch is active here on dw as well and the reminder doesn't hurt 
[community profile] volstovic_cycle - what it says on the tin 

anything else I should know about?

Hello, lovelies!

I've mentioned this before, but now that we've narrowed dates down a bit, I wanted to make another post. During the weekend of October 19th to 22nd, [personal profile] dicta_contrion and I will be in London. We would love to meet fellow fans in the area for drinks and general merriment. :)

Let me (or Dicta) know if you'd be interested in meeting up. We would love to see as many people as are interested and will plan for a space/time/location accordingly!

These are all of my Harry Potter recs where the people in the pairings are from different generations. Hopefully the cut tags are pretty self explanatory! :)

Title: Because You Already Voided the Warranty, So You Might As Well Make It Worse
Author: [personal profile] gracerene
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Draco/Harry
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~3,450
Content/Warnings: Auror Partners, sex toys, mild D/s, banter, light bondage, blow jobs, facials, desk!sex, office!sex
Summary: Being a Junior Auror means getting stuck with all the crap assignments, but in this instance, it just might have worked out in Harry's favour.
Notes: Happy Birthday [personal profile] blithelybonny! You are such a delight, and it was wonderous getting to hang out with you earlier this year IRL. It took me awhile to figure out what direction I wanted to go with your prompt, and I hope you enjoy what I came up with. Wishing you a fabulous day and an even better year! <3

a day most deviant

The always lovely [personal profile] alisanne post some DD ruminations which totally inspired me to take a think on my own participation in the [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant community.

I haven't been a member for all that long now--I officially joined in January 2016--and when I was invited, I told myself that, for as long as I could, I would try and write a different pairing every month (and for the major anon fests). So far, I'm mostly kept that promise. Technically, this past month, I had a repeat pairing with James Sirius/Teddy, but considering the fic also included H/D, I'm considering it different enough to count. ;)

Part of what I LOVE about [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant is the opportunity for me to really stretch my writing muscles. I try and use the space to really push myself and try out different pairings and kinks (of course) but also new styles or POVs or genres. I thought I'd list out some of my "firsts" below. :D

(also, be warned that all of the fics below are explicit, and most of them have additional warnings. some may also be locked on AO3 to those who have accounts, depending on content. read at your own risk!)

First time writing a pairing featuring an inanimate object: Take a Little Ride (Sirius/Motorcycle)

First time writing a threesome: Give In, Don't Fight It (Albus/James/Teddy)

First time writing femslash that wasn't just a PWP: the thrill of under you me (Cho/Lily Luna)

First time writing outsider (and child) POV: In Plain Sight (Ron/Victoire, POV Hugo)

First time writing in first person: Drunk on the Scent of Your Skin (Draco/Remus)

First time writing creature!fic: Bite to Break Skin (Draco/Theo)

First time writing about two main pairings and with more than two POVs in the same fic: Switch (James Sirius/Teddy and Draco/Harry) [not yet on AO3]

Woo! That was fun. I just love this comm SO MUCH! I was working on my contribution for August yesterday and I am feeling pretty excited about it. :)
