OMG, inspired to fic. DA2

For the Dragon Age Kink Meme http://dragonage-kink.livejournal.com/4016.html?thread=8109488#t8109488

AU: Where the chantry is less 'lock up all the mages and kill them at the first sign there's a demon' and more 'thou shalt not suffer a witch to live'.

No circles, but still templars, finding and killing all the mages. How does this effect hawkes life in kirkwall? Does Anders seem less crazy? Was Fenris owned by a mage, or someone else? Is Bethany alive or dead?

Could be their policy from the start, or it could be sometime (pre-chantry explosion plz) they decide it's the only way, everywhere.

Fest Fic: Philosophy

I've got no idea if the most recent fes is up, but... here was my contribution.

Title: Philosophy
Author: Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon
Rating: PG-15? R? Something like that.
Pairing: HP/SS
Summary: What do you believe in?
Disclaimer: Not mine and I'm really just doing this for S'n'Gs. Really.
Beta: My lovely roommate Tori, all other mistakes are mine alone. Mine, I tell you! You can't have them! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Challenge: Wave XII: What if…? Also incorporating the "Snape in Leather Pants" challenge from Wave I.

*snerks, amused*

Summary of a recent review of In Principia:

Great story (thanks)! Love how you handled homophobia! People so rarely deal with intolerant!Wizarding-world (not entirely true, but it is pretty rare). Your Snape was cool, what with being good but not nice (Thanks, that was what I was going for). Only, Ron wouldn't have done that, he's always so very loyal to Harry (you must have read a different GoF than I did)! Oh, noes! And why would the Wizarding World be intolerant anyway, since for Muggles it's all based in religion? (I was under the impression you liked having a non-tolerant Wizarding World, make up your mind)? Why didn't you explain that (I was unaware I had to do 20,000 words of backstory to explain anything in a fic)?

It's funny, the few people who complain about characterizations of In Principa always focus on OMG! Ron would NEVER do that.

Aside from obvious issues of who else in the story would drive the point of such gibbering, mindless hatred home, it betrays a failure, either in myself as a writer or in them as readers. I tend to lean toward them since most people seem to have understood what I was trying to portray.

The whole point of Ron's reaction is that he loves Harry, is generally loyal to Harry -- but when confronted with something so very deep seated in in upbringing behaves with a knee-jerk reaction. It's a condemnation of the society that Ron would react like that. Not a condemnation of Ron, himself. It's about how unthinking and stupid and horrifying such prejudices are, and what they can do. It's about my friend who told his parents -- who, before that moment loved him unequivically -- and was left with a father who won't acknowledge him and a mother who dances between "I accept you" and "You're going to hell!" Love and loyalty do not inherently stand a chance against the dictates of social reality in which you are raised.

*shakes head, torn between amusement and sadness*

It's hard to tell if, when people are so fixated on "You were mean to my favorite character!" that they actually completely miss the point of a sotry, I should laugh at them or despair for humanity.

FQF Fic: Duplicity

Title: Duplicity
Author: Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon
Rating: PG

Warnings: None, really, other than this is a bit silly, IMHO.

She sings to him... )

Help Fight Breast Cancer for Free

An alert from my stepsister (thank you dearest!)

http://www.thebreastcancersite.com/home today and every day to click on the pink "Fund Free Mammograms" button and help fund free mammograms for homeless, working-poor and uninsured women.

This simple action costs you nothing, but makes early detection and survival possible! Funding is paid by site sponsors and goes to the nonprofit National Breast Cancer Foundation, who uses it to fund programs that provide free mammography screenings to women in need. You can click once per day.

Pass it along as a way to fight breast cancer this month and all year long!

http://www.thebreastcancersite.com/home

Keep this do-good chain of hope going.... Forward this email to others who may be interested in helping. Thanks for spreading the word!


Like the Hunger Site, a click a day, right?

Sometimes, I just suck

How attention-whoring is it to wish that someone you've just sent a story off to should reply instantly with 'You're a goddess?'

*sighs* Sometimes, I'm shocked by just how fragile and crud my ego really is. *shakes head* Anyhoo, [livejournal.com profile] isidore13 my fest fic is waiting for comments in the beta filter if you've got time, although I do have someone else giving it a look-see if you don't before tomorrow/friday, although tomorrow would definitely be better ;)

I have a life outside of LJ. Okay, it primarily seems to consist of trying to sucessfully create a *sour* sourdough starter at the moment, but I do have a life, darnit! *repeats mantra*

Checking for betas

I'm partially finished with my fic for the next Dusk-till-Dawn. Anyone interested in the beta-sneak-peek?

(Weirdly, the fic is writing itself backwards, of all bizarre things. I've a beginning and an end and the end is creeping toward the beginning. Is weird. I promise not to make anyone read it with gaping holes near the front of the plot and am assiduously trying to tell myself we don't need a long-spawned story arc other than Ars Magica)

Pokes [livejournal.com profile] isidore13 and [personal profile] leianora, dearest betas from the last fest. Willing to stay with me?
