[sticky post] Masterlist of khalulu's Harry Potter fanfics

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.

FicsCollapse )

Drabbles and ficletsCollapse )

My art, LOL, plus HP Drizzle coming soon!

Okay my lucky f-list, you get to see why I sign up to produce fic, not art. akatnamedeaster had a YOU CAN draw!!! Challenge!! for anyone (explicitly including people who feel "I can't draw!") to draw an HP character and a cup of tea (or coffee), and post it. I learned about this from seeing nia_kantorka's darling Hedwig perched on a teacup, and couldn't resist. The result is below. I used my laptop to take the picture, which means you need a mirror to read the writing, oops! Secret code!

Crookshanks and tea

You should go check out the other art, which stars a wide range of characters including the Giant Squid, Peeves and Mrs. Norris, and ranges from adorable (some created by kids) to very funny to teacup porn. You can even vote for funniest/most creative, sexiest, and your overall fav.

Also - in just a couple of days, we'll have fun hp_drizzle to look forward to! It's a fun way to peek into other corners of the fandom. Or to find a home for that fic you want to write, if you can finagle some connection to the weather....

In my tradition of taking a ridiculously long time to re-post my fest fics in my journal, here is my entry in this year's wonderful H/D Remix fest. If you'd like to see it in Russian translation, someone named Ara-Ara has made one! Remix had some wonderful work this year, and I had the extraordinary good fortune also to have my fic Sparks from the Fox's Tail given a gorgeous remix by fantasyfiend09, called Aamu is Dreaming.

Title: The Lily, the Violet, the Tiny Babe
Author: khalulu
Pairing: H/D
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Story notes: A remix of sassy_cissa's loving little story The Scent of Violets, from Lily Evans Potter's point of view. EWE, implied mpreg.
Words: 1324
Summary: From beyond the Veil, she senses that her son Harry needs her – but who is that very blond baby in his arms? Learning that she is a grandmother takes Lily on an emotional journey.

Read it on AO3 or in my journal hereCollapse )

Leviosa/Erised

A belated post just to mention what an utterly lovely time I had at Leviosa. The people! It was so wonderful to meet people and I'm not even going to try to name everyone, because I'm afraid I'll goof and miss some - but it was my great joy to meet and room with Vaysh, and to meet Dicta_contrion, and FantasyFiend09, and Writcraft, and Alisanne, and Amorette, and Sassy_Cissa, and to make new friends like Persephoneapple and nuclearpolymer, and see old friends like pir8fancier and oldenuf2knowbetter. All of the programming was great and my only regret is not having a Time-turner so I could go to several things at once. (And a Port-key so I could have arrived sooner and stayed longer!) The slash and LGBTQIA panels were great, as were some on issues of race and intersectionality, and there were fun things like the Snape debate and video showing by the makers of Snape and the Marauders, and interesting things like information on writing query letters, something I knew nothing about. And I got a great new book called Snape by Lorrie Kim (drinkingcocoa?), which is insightful and completely on-target about how flawed, tormented, abusive, brave, brilliant, and dedicated he was and what an impossible position he was in. Also got a bookbag that quotes Hermione: "When in doubt, go to the library," and was tempted by the election stuff: Granger/Lovegood 2016!

Maybe because Leviosa was so welcoming, I'm actually thinking for the first time about signing up for h/d erised. Gift exchange fests have always made me nervous in a way that prompt based fests do not. Problem is, I need a long gestation time, and I have 2 fics to finish before then, one of which is still in notes-and-ideas-gathering stage.

an alphabetty meme

I confess to googling for some of these... I was tagged by vaysh, so here goes:

Begin the next answer with the last letter of the previous answer.

01) Name: khalulu
02) Animal: the Uganda kob looks lovely, but I must go with the upupa!
03) Girl's name: Angharad
04) Color: Delft Blue
05) Movie: Enlightenment Guaranteed (original German title, Erleuchtung garantiert)
06) Something you wear: dress (sometimes)
07) Drink: sarsaparilla
08) Food: apricot
09) Item in the bathroom: towel
10) Place: Lilongwe
11) Reason to be late: enervation

Anyone who reads this is welcome to do it, and maybe I'll tag lokifan because she often likes memes (just if you feel like it!), and some friends I seldom see post anymore, just in hopes of hearing a peep from them... icmezzo and omi_ohmy. No pressure, hope you're well!

anyone need a roommate for Leviosa?

hello all!

Well it looks like I'm going to Leviosa after all! Does anyone need a roommate? I will probably be there Thurs, Fri and Sat night. I don't mind sharing with several people if anyone is looking to keep costs low. I'm a quiet person.

I am awed, honored, moved and delighted by the remix of my fic Sparks from the Fox's Tail which has just posted on hd_remix. It's called Aamu is Dreaming and it's phenomenal. The fic itself is short, just 1600 perfect words, but it's dense with meaning. In my fic, Draco goes to Finland to study wandless magic in the Finnish magical tradition. Aamu is an elderly neighbor of his host family, who is a seer. This remix is the story of Draco (and Narcissa, and Harry) as seen in Aamu's vision and through the lens of her understanding of Finnish legend. In particular the story of Lemminkäinen, a reckless young hero who dies and is revived by his mother's perseverance, with the help of a bee that flies to heaven and back.

One of the greatest pleasures in writing is to feel that the audience truly understands, and in this remix I felt the author understood parts of my story even better than I did myself. And in addition, this is a masterful writer. I really look forward to learning who it is!

Author: anonymous
Title: Aamu is Dreaming
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: PG
Warning(s): None
Word Count: 1,600
Summary: This is the story of Sparks from the Fox’s Tail by khalulu from the pov of Aamu the seer.
The talented iuventas94 made a lovely drawing of a scene from my fic The Tapestry of Kinship. Mira Altair (Draco's young daughter) is finding her name on the Black family tree, on the tapestry at Harry's house in Grimmauld Place. She is just adorable seen from the back, with corkscrew black curls and her dress a bit askew and little ankle socks. See it here on Deviant Art and leave the artist some love!
