Day 5

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.

Um...there are about 1,000 people that I could talk about right now, this is so hard. But an author I have been loving recently is firethesound. I have honestly loved every single fic of hers I have read (and I have read through her whole masterlist). Her writing is fantastic and I love her characterizations. She manages to create these situations that are funny and sexy and they are so believable and natural! I'm always impressed with the side characters especially, the always add so much and never seem overpowering, or flat, or unnecessary. I like her writing so much, I've actually read(and loved!) her non-smutty fics, and I usually pass right by anything less than an R. And she is so nice too! She always leaves lovely replies to my comments on her posts, which makes the commenting process much less nerve-wracking.

There are so many of her fics that everybody should go read now, but my favorites are probably Blue Sunny Day: a creature!fic with vampire!harry, Tuesday Nights (and companion piece Saturday Afternoons) which has a down-on-his luck Draco and a really fantastic H/D relationship development, and her Don't Think Twice series: Don't Think Twice, It's All Right, and Save It For Me, a super kinky, smutty 8th year series.

And starting tomorrow she is going to start posting daily chapters to her long auror!fic, which I am so excited for!

Oh, thank you for this! She and I just became friends this week, but between my own writing, catching up on fests before they Reveal, and being sick while taking care of a sick kid, there just haven't been enough hours in the day. Can't wait to try these recs out. :-D

I know, things always get crazy this time of year in RL and in fandom! I still have several fests to catch up on....but you should definitely read these when you have the time, her fics are awesome! :)

So, I typed out and then deleted no less than three replies to this entry, but they were all mostly incoherent keyboard mashing and flailing. But I've taken some time, and made some tea, and I think I've calmed down to sort of make sense now, lol.

I don't think I can find enough words to say how flattered and surprised and just plain thrilled I was to see this, but I'm going to try anyhow. (There was also squealing and flailing. I completely freaked out the cat.) I have the hugest smile on my face right now, thanks to you. This entire post is one of the hugest and best compliments I've ever received, and I'm still sort of amazed that out of all the brilliant and wonderfully talented writers around, you've picked me to talk about. So thank you thank you thank you!! :D

I don't know where I was when Tuesday Night was posted because OMG I haven't read it! :O

Thank you for this post. She's brilliant!
