As mentioned in a previous post, I've been a devoted fan of Elan Meets Rafa, "a boy love webcomic with cat," ever since someone on my f-list recommended it, and I also loved another completely endearing opposites-attract m/m slash story, The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal. And then found the delightful Victorian magical world of Widdershins, which is tons of fun. No romance in that one, but some buddy-friendships and some kick-ass women - facing off against the 7 Deadly Sins.

Here are a few more discoveries. Eth's Skin is set in a beautiful magical version of the Pacific coast of British Columbia, and features a quiet, androgynous fisherperson, a currently-grumpy-and-snarky selkie, a mermaid, some beachwalkers (including a lesbian couple with children), and a floating raft town. Lovely, simple black and white line drawings.

For contrast, two comics by Aero Zero with intense gorgeous colors and very striking character designs (especially the monsters) and landscapes. She describes Kyria as a "light-hearted epic fantasy" and Men+Monsters as "a romantic fantasy adventure about a teratophile knight, his monster lover, and their robot companion" - that one has m/m smut. (You can elect to view the explicit or the less-graphic version.)

And yet another contrast, the elegant Curia Regis, political machinations (neither gay nor magical) among the nobility in someplace like 18th - 19th century France. That one is complex and I have decided to buy the books so I can more easily flip back and forth to follow the hints and sort out what's up. It starts out in striking black and white, and later becomes color - sort of a flat, stylized look.

And then for you fans of comic-book style super-heroes who'd like to see some gay guys among them, there's The Young Protectors.

Except for TJ and Amal, which is complete, these are all on-going stories. You'll need to go back to the beginning to get caught up, which could keep you busy for awhile! They update once or twice a week.

Does anyone know any good webcomics with lesbians? I should at least link here to the archives of Dykes to Watch Out For, for anyone who wants a cultural history lesson of American lesbian-feminism beginning in the 80's and '90's, from Alison Bechdel (who gave us what's come to be called the "Bechdel test" in that very cartoon).

Enjoy!

ETA: There's also this beautifully color-penciled story of "a queer 13 year old girl who finds herself stranded in a dangerous place: an all-white Christian youth backpacking camp", As the Crow Flies.

Author's Notes: Why does Draco have a picture of a goat on his mantelpiece? Why does Harry have a Dirigible Plum dangling from his doorknob? What kind of house does Narcissa have in Paris? The answers, dear reader, are within.

Begin Part 2 here )
khalulu: (kanji)
This story began life as a drabble called "Lucky Star" (here, week 5), written for the H/D LDWS round 3 prompt "Deluminator". My dear friend and beta-buddy [livejournal.com profile] altri_uccelli said she could imagine Mira tracing her fingers over her name on the tapestry, and wanted to know more about her. Several years later, when the kind mods over at [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair planted a prompt for me for this year's H/D Career Fair, I finally managed to get it written. It's a story about family, healing, old losses and new loves. And my first kid fic, though not a canon kid. I take what the muse gives me, and she gave me Mira Altair at the beach.

Many many thanks to the exceedingly helpful, gracious, patient and forbearing [livejournal.com profile] hd_fanfair_mods, and to my dearest and most excellent beta-buddy, [livejournal.com profile] altri_uccelli, without whom this fic would not exist. Also to [livejournal.com profile] lamerezouille for very helpful consultation on French expressions (and goats). Errors that may have crept in from post-beta tinkering are of course all mine.

You can read this story on AO3 or read it here on LJ )

I offer these in the spirit of Rectober, though technically these aren't fanworks, they are original webcomics (but also labors of love and freely offered). Someone on my f-list turned me on to Elan Meets Rafa last year and I have to spread the word! None of these are manga style.

Elan Meets Rafa, a boy love webcomic love story with a cat, by The Mice, is a beautiful, thoughtful, funny, sad, absorbing story in a warm, natural drawing style. Elan is quiet, artistic, intellectual, isolated and unsure of himself, but with enough courage to strike out on his own with almost nothing when his wealthy, controlling father disowns him. Rafa, a confident, street-smart, generous guy from a rough neighborhood, runs into Elan (literally) and their story begins. I am completely addicted to this story, which updates every Wednesday. The artist said she began it to improve her drawing, which does get more polished as it goes along, but I was happy with it from the first. The characters in the neighborhood, and the animals, are also great. This is a realistic look at the hopes and difficulties of love.

The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal, by E. K. Weaver, now completed, is another story of two very different guys falling in love during a road trip across America. It's funny, moving, and takes you along on the tour - there are some great landscapes now and then.

And this one is adventures with magic rather than romance, in the Victorian age. It has some very cool characters, including some formidable women, and it's a lot of fun: Widdershins by Kate Ashwin.

Give them a chance, I hope you'll enjoy them!

Book meme

Since [livejournal.com profile] nenne has tagged me, here goes:

"Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!"

It's hard because there would be anthologies, like poetry anthologies and collections of fairy tales and mythology, and complete works of Shakespeare, etc. but I'm just going to go with fiction - and not try to make it "the" ten, but just ten of the many. Not in order.

Precious Bane by Mary Webb. Written in the 1920's, set in pre-industrial rural England, with the wonderful heroine Prue Sarn, written in a gorgeous dialect.

Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner. A maiden aunt, tired of being taken for granted, sells her soul to the devil and lives happily ever after.

China Court by Rumer Godden. Many generations of a family in a house, in a story that wanders back and forth in time. I identified with Eliza, another spinster who quotes, "My mind to me a kingdom is."

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Read it religiously every year all through jr high and high school, had maps of Middle Earth on my wall, wrote "Find the Entwives!" on my notebook. Written by a philologist (language lover), and it shows.

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Two wealthy but neglected children find healing on the Yorkshire moors and in a secret garden.

Regeneration Trilogy (Regeneration, The Ghost Road, An Eye in the Door) by Pat Barker. Beginning with British Army Officers in the First World War being treated for shell shock, and the psychologist who treats them (including poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen). Politics of war, gayness, class issues.

A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth. A tapestry of life in 1950's India through four families. I remember the funeral of a warm, loving woman whose politician husband took her for granted and was a bit ashamed of her, and how astonished he was by the outpouring of love and respect at her funeral.

The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie. There's a compelling, haunting section about a girl who is a faith healer and convinces her followers to follow her into the ocean, which they believe will part for them like the Red Sea.

Witch of the Glens by Sally Watson. This author wrote young adult historical novels with spirited, independent girls. This one is set in Scotland in the 1700s.

The Wind in the Willows. Mole flinging down his white-washing brush to run away in the spring sunshine and have adventures, and meet Ratty, who loves nothing better than "messing about in boats."

I'm not going to tag anyone, but rather invite anyone who is reading, interested, and not already doing this, to join in with your own list!

From [livejournal.com profile] vaysh who says she got it from [livejournal.com profile] traintracks: "Everyone post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourselves in your current incarnations (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously)." These might not be THE 10, but they are 10 memorable ones that run the gamut (well, one is a trilogy, so actually it's a dozen - and it's not LOTR, because that's one where I love the books more). In no particular order, but numbered for reference:

1) Grand Illusion (dir. Jean Renoir, 1937) Great anti-war movie about WWI, made on the brink of WWII.
2) The Apu Trilogy (dir. Satyajit Ray, 1955 - 58) Pather Panchali, Aparajito, The World of Apu. Beautiful story of a boy from rural India growing up, leaving home and finding his way. Anything by this director is HIGHLY recommended.
3) Princess Mononoke (animated, dir. Hayao Miyazaki, 1997) Gorgeous and thought-provoking, like all his work.
4) Peking Opera Blues (dir. Tsui Hark, with Brigitte Lin as a fabulously dykey heroine, 1986) SO MUCH FUN! Spectacular romp from Hong Kong mixing early 20th century Chinese history with the wild colors and acrobatics of Peking Opera, comedy, action, and three great heroines.
5) Singin' In the Rain (with Gene Kelley, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O'Connor, 1952) Great comedy about early movie industry moving to "talkies", great song and dance numbers.
6) Holiday (with Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, 1938) - or any of many other screwball comedies - I love the genre.
7) The Sound of Music (with Julie Andrews, Alps, and a lot of songs, 1965) Formative film of my childhood.
8) A Comedy in Six Unnatural Acts (dir. Jan Oxenberg, 1975, in the brave and unassimilated heyday of lesbian feminism) Short spoofs of old stereotypes about lesbians, shot in different film genre styles.
9) Cherry Blossoms (dir. Doris Dorrie, 2008) Mortality, relationships, grief, journeys, art, cherry blossoms. (Hey, something from this century!)
10) Brother From Another Planet (dir. John Sayles, 1984) Anything by John Sayles is worth watching, and his movies are extremely varied. This is a very early (and quirky) one. The scenes in the Harlem bar are priceless.

If I had room for more… The Station Agent (first time I saw Peter Dinklage); The King of Masks (lovely Chinese film about old man passing his craft on to an adopted boy who turns out to be a girl); Kanal (riveting drama of Warsaw Resistance fighters; if Kanal is too claustrophobic, you could watch The Pianist with Adrien Brody and his lovely eyebrows); something by Yasuhiro Ozu (The Only Son or Late Spring, maybe - quiet family stories from the 1930's and '40's); Romeo and Juliet (dir. Franco Zeffirelli, 1968, gorgeous poetry in a visually gorgeous movie)….

How about you?

THE HP FANFIC FAN POLL AWARDS - SPRING-SUMMER ROUND 2014
Rules, Timelines, and How to Nominate a Fic

To Make Nominations/Ask Questions: hpfanficfanpollmod@gmail.com
Nomination period: April 1st - April 28th, 2014
Voting period: May 1st - June 30th, 2014
Winners announced: by July 10th, 2014



Some kind person nominated my Draco-in-Finland H/D fic Sparks from the Fox's Tail, for the Drarry Best Drama-Angst Fic category! I am thrilled and flattered and happy that maybe the story will get some new readers! (Is "chuffed" a good word to use here, O Brit-pickers?)

Thank you, whoever nominated me!

I'm not even sure what category I'd put that fic into (barring "cool Finnish magical incantations"), so it's interesting to see what someone else thinks.

Now I sort of feel I should go nominate a fic or two…

ETA Now that I'm trying to nominate fics, I see that what category you place a fic in for nomination may be partly determined by what categories you haven't already nominated something else in! So many lovely fics, so few spots….

khalulu: (kanji)
Long past time to publicize these generous and beautiful creations that others have made from a few of my fics, and thank the makers. It is such a delight and honor for me. (I am terribly slow at posting in my own journal because I get coding-phobia sometimes, but I have loved each of these since they were created.)

Podfics! Back in round 3 of H/D LDWS, I wrote 8 drabbles about Magical Items and Artefacts. To my great delight, there are podfics of two of these by [livejournal.com profile] vaysh, and of the complete set (or here on AO3) by [livejournal.com profile] sisi_rambles! Thank you so so much for this honor, o lovely and wondrous podficcers! It is so amazing to hear someone else read my work aloud.

My story Beekeeping is set in Malawi, a small country in Africa where Harry is a volunteer teacher and Draco has come to see the spectacular fish of Lake Malawi. Shortly after they run into each other by the lakeside, Harry has a dreamy dream - and here is a lovely illustration of it, with gorgeous fish art and happy naked boys, by [livejournal.com profile] kalime80 - I am so happy that she did this! It's called I dreamt of a thousand scales, and it was you, and it's like a scene of an underwater Eden. (Naked boys, like I said, so maybe NSW.)

Finally, I am incredibly grateful to and in awe of [livejournal.com profile] phonixfeder, who has now translated all four of my longer fics into German! It's such a pleasure to get the comments from the German readers, and I always learn some new expression - like "kopfkino" (when your imagination starts making mental cinema) or "Holla die Waldfee!" or "He had the Pope in his pocket." Her translations are here:
Funken, die aus dem Schwanz eines Fuchses Kommen (Sparks from the Fox's Tail in German translation)
Das Züchten von Bienen (Beekeeping in German translation)
Abraxan Wings in German translation
Draco Malfoy sehen (Seeing Draco Malfoy in German translation)

Thank each of you so much, it is so encouraging and such a privilege for me. And thank you to everyone who reads, looks or listens!
khalulu: (kanji)
Sparks from the Fox's Tail: H/D, PG-13 (romance, not explicit), about 17,000 words. Summary: Draco is frustrated with his career as a travel writer, when a mini-tirade from Mrs. Weasley and an encounter with the portrait of an intrepid great-great-great-aunt lead him to Finland to study wandless magic. Harry is – just being contrary and following his sweet-tooth, or taking the subtle route to saving the world?

This is a story of renewal, inspired in part by the genuine and gorgeous Finnish magical incantations you will find within, from a tradition that was still active in the past century.

I've finally written a slash story that passes the Bechdel test! (Includes *at least two women who *talk to each other about *something besides a man.) And it contains actual, not just metaphorical, bee-keeping, unlike my fic of that name!

Many many thanks to my extraordinarily helpful, supportive and all-around wonderful team of Finn-picker [livejournal.com profile] dark0feenix, Brit-picker [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore, and beta [livejournal.com profile] altri_uccelli, and the patient and fabulous mods of [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair.

Check out the picture and video gallery for more on Finnish traditions, dogs and northern lights (Chapter 2).

And I am delighted that this fic can be read in German translation, thanks to the awesome [livejournal.com profile] phonixfeder! Funken, die aus dem Schwanz eines Fuchses Kommen I am ridiculously late posting my fic to my journal, but at least I can announce this translation at the same time!
khalulu: (kanji)
I left the prompt for this (first prompt I've ever left) and this story fulfills it in a way that is so profound, moving, quirkily funny at times, insightful and beautifully written, I'm overwhelmed. A story about healing. I have no idea who the author is, but someone whose work I'll follow, for sure. When I went to comment on things I loved, it was just studded with them. If you want a partial list scroll down to my comment amongst the other raves, but to avoid spoilers here I'll just say do yourself a favor and read this. (Note - you do not need to love poetry or feel that you understand the prompt's poem to appreciate this fic - it was the seed of inspiration, but the fic is clear and accessible prose.)

Kiss the Joy (Until the Sun Rise)

Summary: The Room of Requirement was severely damaged in the war, but not so much that it could not provide for one lost student and another young hero—especially when they needed each other most of all.
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~38,000
Author's Notes: As we all know, the theme of this fest is “Bound to You.” More specifically, the prompt I chose asked for “freedom from bondage,” based on the lovely poem “Eternity,” by William Blake. As it is quite short, I’ll reprint it here:

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sun rise.
khalulu: (kanji)
I just realized that if I waited til the end of the month for a rec wrap-up for [livejournal.com profile] hds_beltane, many people would already be submerged in Smoochfest. So let me rec this very fun, original, quirky and generally delightful fic called Good Training. The year after the war, "the wraith of Snape" is wreaking havoc at Hogwarts. To appease it, Harry (struggling as a junior Auror) and Draco (an 8th year student) are sent on a quest, which begins deep in the waters of the Black Lake. They have to pilot a cumbersome little submarine tent while also navigating their awkward relationship with each other. Harry alternates between brash enthusiasm and confusion. Draco is diffident at first but turns out to be skilled at international mer-people diplomacy, which is crucial to the success of their quest. They stumble through their uncertainties toward a better future together. Written with verve, humor, and thoughtfulness. Plus - learn more about mer-culture! Do yourself a favor and give this fic some love!

Also fun - Turn Alight, a fic in which Harry and Draco must fix a "broken" Beltane by, well, what do you think. Including antlers on an alice-band! And Beltane Magic,a fic with some charming PG rated Beltane rituals for children, where Harry and Draco are first brought together through Teddy. And Essential Cores, an art piece with some lovely wand-magic tattoos.

And a beautiful Draco - Snape story, sun-stepping with my dance shoes on, with a lonely Draco doing his best to redeem himself in his own eyes at least, and a portrayal of Snape's strong, suspicious mother.

It's a small list, but here you are! Artists and podficcers are welcome, just let me know! All these are H/D so far.

Drabbles and ficlets )

Title: Beekeeping
Author: [livejournal.com profile] khalulu
Rating: NC-17 overall; R for this part
Pairing(s): H/D
Summary: A few years after the war, Harry needs distance from the British wizarding world and volunteers abroad as a teacher in a poor rural school. Draco is a low-budget traveler, wandering wherever his curiosity leads him. Their paths cross in Malawi, “the warm heart of Africa.”
Warnings/Content Notes: No real warnings. Contains: sex, mostly not very graphic. Insects, ditto. Snide comment which does not reflect author’s real views on Snarry stories. Mention of previous feline violence against lizards.
Word Count: about 13,600 overall; part 1 is about 7,000
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Author's Notes: EWE. Harry and Draco are still wizards and retain all their powers, but magic is not used during the events in this story. This fic may not be seasonally accurate – that is, the relative timing of rainy season/ mango season/ school terms/ constellation visibility probably doesn’t line up properly. There’s a paraphrase of Walt Whitman’s line, “I sing the body electric.” The bee in the apple orchard art at the end is by Deborah Koch. Go here to see a picture of a Dragon Blood Peacock cichlid.

And here is a lovely illustration of Harry's dream, with gorgeous fish art and happy naked boys, by [livejournal.com profile] kalime80 - I am so happy that she did this! It's called I dreamt of a thousand scales, and it was you, and it's like a scene of an underwater Eden.

Written for and first posted here in the 2012 H/D Career Fair hosted by [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair; a couple of very minor corrections have been made, and some new images added, to this post. Many many thanks to the mods and to my gracious, skillful and encouraging betas, [livejournal.com profile] thisgirl_is and [livejournal.com profile] altri_uccelli, without whom this fic would have languished unbalanced, unpolished and unseen. Remaining flaws are all mine.
You may also read the fic here on AO3. If you prefer to listen, here is a wonderful podfic by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] semperfiona! And if you'd prefer to read this fic in German translation, you may, thanks to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] phonixfeder! I am so grateful to both of them for giving their time and talents to my story.
This fic is brought to you by the letter Z.

khalulu: (Default)
I am utterly thrilled, delighted, honored and grateful that the talented and generous [livejournal.com profile] phonixfeder has translated my H/D fic Abraxan Wings into German, and begun posting it here! And it even has reviews already! The first one is from someone who works in a hospital with people with injuries similar to the one Draco sustained, which makes me hope I represented it properly. (I put the review through an on-line machine translation because I was so curious and impatient to read it. Computer translators give a general idea of the content but also make you realize how truly necessary it is to have a human being to really do translation well!)

It makes me so happy that someone liked my fic enough to do this labor of love. Thank you so much, phonixfeder! I love trying to cross language barriers in my own life but this is not one I could have crossed on my own. And I'm so glad to have new readers for the fic.

Meanwhile I have very much enjoyed reading in [livejournal.com profile] dm_asp_fest and now in [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair - I have a fic in Career Fair this year, I'm happy to say. Wishing now that I'd found a way to Britpick the spelling more consistently, but oh well....
khalulu: (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] hds_beltane is such a high quality fest, and doesn’t seem to have as many readers as the works merit, so I’m posting some recs before reveals. All of these are well-written, and many are funny as well – I’ll start with a few that aren’t primarily humorous.

Go here for recs. ) Enjoy!
khalulu: (Default)
I was extremely surprised and honored (not to mention tickled pink) to learn that my H/D drabble "Quidditch for Lovers (Pillow Talk)" has been nominated in the "best drabble" and "best line" categories (for the last line, "When we're close, we open,") at HP Fanfic Fan Poll Awards over at [livejournal.com profile] hpfanficfanpoll.



Should you so desire, you can vote for fics for the awards anytime until March 31, by going here. Between all the categories, there are approximately a gazillion (well, 140) fics (find the nominations list here), but not to worry, you can vote one category at a time and come back to do others later, as clarified here. (Coincidentally, the two categories I'm nominated in are quick to read through, because there are only six drabbles nominated and they are each 100 words, and though there are many nominations for best line, they're only one sentence each - reading the rest of the fic is optional.) You just need to be sure to pick first, second and third choices for each category you do decide to vote for, and not send more than one ballot per category (i.e. don't stuff the ballot box).

For more info on how the awards work, you can go here and here - they happen several times a year, with different themes at different times, love being a central theme this time (along with family, smut, "state of living", anniversaries and certain holidays). In April you'll be able to nominate fics with themes of war, legal and social issues, magic, fantasy and sci-fi, graduations, etc. This is the first time they've done these as an internet poll, so it's easy to participate (even if it's sometimes hard to make up your mind)!

Thank you to the kind person who nominated me!




THE HP FANFIC FAN POLL AWARDS - SPRING ROUND 2012
Overview FAQ / How to Vote

I had a lovely time writing in [livejournal.com profile] slythindor100's last round of H/D LDWS in August and September, and won this gorgeous banner by [livejournal.com profile] wincest_drarry, and then was swallowed up by real life before I managed to post the banner and repost my drabbles. (Code-wrestling not being my favorite thing to do.) I was reminded by the notice of the upcoming Round 4, which I'll be happily reading and voting on in a day or two.

So here's what I wrote for round 3, with thanks to the mods [livejournal.com profile] sassy_cissa and [livejournal.com profile] vaysh11 (so well-run, and such fabulous prompts!) and other writers (met some terrific writers!) and readers/commenters/voters. The theme was Magical Items and Artefacts, and the drabbles run the gamut. There's wartime angst, sweet pre-slash by the seaside, snarky first seductions and established (or re-establishing) relationships. Drabbles are below cuts (and now you can also read them on AO3. Of course the boys belong to JK Rowling, and I get pleasure, not money, from them.

To my great delight, there are podfics of two of these by [livejournal.com profile] vaysh, and of the complete set (or here on AO3) by [livejournal.com profile] sisi_rambles! Thank you so so much for this honor, o lovely and wondrous podficcers! It is so amazing to hear someone else read my work aloud.

There's also a fascinating remix of Week 2 "Hogwarts Reunion", The first of all pleasures (Until the Glass Begins to Fly Remix) by [livejournal.com profile] megyal, who took my little wisp of a drabble and spun it into something wondrous.

Week 1: Invisibility Cloak Uncloaked, PG, 335 words )
Week 2: Mirror of Erised Hogwarts Reunion, R, 200 words )
Week 3: Time-Turner Turning Toward the Morning, G, 350 words ) with Vaysh's lovely podfic

Week 4: Marauder's Map Map Kinks / Mischief Well Managed, PG-13, 200 words )
Week 5: Deluminator Lucky Star, G, 450 words ) and as another lovely podfic by Vaysh

Week 6: Hand of Glory Outstretched, Alive, PG-13, 150 words )
Week 7: Quick-Quotes Quill Pen Porn, R, 210 words )
Week 8: Golden Snitch Quidditch for Lovers (Pillow Talk), R, 100 words )

I got so much pleasure reading HDS Beltane fics last year, and looking at the art, that the least I can do is spread the word for this most excellent fest - Beltane themed art and fics about any combination of Harry, Draco, and Snape. If I were going to sign up for a gift exchange fest, this would be the one. (I think I'm just a claim-a-prompt fest kind of gal, though.) Check it out and sign up by Dec. 31st!

My drabble was chosen first place for week 7 in round 3 of H/D LDWS over at [livejournal.com profile] slythindor100, so I get this lovely banner with art by [livejournal.com profile] wincest_drarry (my real reason for posting) and I get to keep writing for the final prompt, the Golden Snitch, this coming week. Whatever happens, it's been challenging and fun, I found some excellent new-to-me writers, and the timing is perfect, because real life gets much busier beginning next week. I will post all my drabbles here after it's all finished.
