So.LJ is down, has been for a few days. I know some people have been able to get on from time to time, but I haven't at all. It's frustrating. Not enough to make me leave the place or anything, since huge outages aren't actually that often, but when they do occur, I go through withdrawal. So, to lessen the effects at least a tad, I'm posting here! (Yuletide has been revealed but I'm gonna wait until LJ is running again to do a post-reveals post.)

First Day of [community profile] snowflake_challenge   .

SELF RECS :D Basically, a time to be Narcissistic lol. So, anyway, here are my top-10 faves of my fics. They're not the most popular ones but they're the ones I feel are the best (or that I just like most...) In alphabetical order by title:

Before the Storm (Harry Potter; Antonin/Bellatrix, Andromeda/Ted, Lucius Narcissa, Rodolphus/Bellatrix)
Long and plotty. Covers my headcanon for the Black sisters and their relationships in the couple of years directly before the First War. I'm generally happy with the writing here and finally I've also produced something with a real plot lol.

Behold (Star Wars; Obi-Wan/Anakin)
This one is older. It won an award for Best Poem in the Saga category on TFN in the 2008 awards. Technically, it can be read as gen if you like (I mean, I did post it on TFN lol). I really do like this one. I remember I wrote a huge chunk of it in my head in the shower...yea my mind works like that lol.

Dear Agony (Harry Potter; Scorpius/Lysander, Draco/Ernie)
I like my writing in this, that's all I can say.

In Love and War (Harry Potter; Antonin/Pansy, Draco/Pansy)
Like Before the Storm there's all that length and plot to be proud of. I feel like I rushed it a bit at the end, but it works, it really works. This one covers the Second Wizarding War. As for the Antonin/Pansy thing...it's mostly UST so no Lolita-esque awkwardness lol.

My Better Half (Eugene Onegin; Onegin/Lensky)
Again, I really just like my writing in this one. And the sex scene managed to not be terribly awkward.

Our Beautiful Disaster (Harry Potter; Severus/Evan)
Another one of those fics that's just solid. I like the writing and the pacing. Pacing, I think. is the one thing I struggle with.

Seasons (Harry Potter; Lily/Alice)
I wanted to include a femslash fic? I like the imagery here most. It's quite solid, IMO.

Reasons (Harry Potter; Severus, Regulus, Barty, Evan, Antonin, OCs)
I've tried to write the whole 'why the FWW DEs became DE' type thing a few times, but I think this is the best all around. The boys represented here cover all the different types for me -- the younger son who is willing to please, the half-blood who hasn't had a good experience with muggles, the son of liberal Purebloods who wants to be proud of his heritage but is made to feel ashamed plus doesn't have enough raport and and support at home, the happy Pureblood who has only seen the worst of muggles and is honestly convinced that the world's evils come from them, etc.

The Color Red (War and Peace; Dolokhov/Anatole)
Yes, I like my writing here, it's my OTP and it's just a fic I feel all warm and fuzzy about.

Whisky in the Snow (War and Peace; Dolokhov/Anatole)
I wrote this at 6AM after pulling an all nighter, Despite that, it came easily and the writing is good. Aside from the poem, this is the shortest piece on this list, but I think that's part of it's strength -- packing lots of emotion into a small amount of text.

I also wanna give an honorable mention to my You and Me series. War and Peace; multiple parings but mostly slash. I wouldn't call this an overall best sample of my writing per se, but the epic proportions of this (relative to my usual) is still impressing me. I'm hoping to get the 3
