a day most deviant  
The always lovely [personal profile] alisanne post some DD ruminations which totally inspired me to take a think on my own participation in the [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant community.

I haven't been a member for all that long now--I officially joined in January 2016--and when I was invited, I told myself that, for as long as I could, I would try and write a different pairing every month (and for the major anon fests). So far, I'm mostly kept that promise. Technically, this past month, I had a repeat pairing with James Sirius/Teddy, but considering the fic also included H/D, I'm considering it different enough to count. ;)

Part of what I LOVE about [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant is the opportunity for me to really stretch my writing muscles. I try and use the space to really push myself and try out different pairings and kinks (of course) but also new styles or POVs or genres. I thought I'd list out some of my "firsts" below. :D

(also, be warned that all of the fics below are explicit, and most of them have additional warnings. some may also be locked on AO3 to those who have accounts, depending on content. read at your own risk!)

First time writing a pairing featuring an inanimate object: Take a Little Ride (Sirius/Motorcycle)

First time writing a threesome: Give In, Don't Fight It (Albus/James/Teddy)

First time writing femslash that wasn't just a PWP: the thrill of under you me (Cho/Lily Luna)

First time writing outsider (and child) POV: In Plain Sight (Ron/Victoire, POV Hugo)

First time writing in first person: Drunk on the Scent of Your Skin (Draco/Remus)

First time writing creature!fic: Bite to Break Skin (Draco/Theo)

First time writing about two main pairings and with more than two POVs in the same fic: Switch (James Sirius/Teddy and Draco/Harry) [not yet on AO3]

Woo! That was fun. I just love this comm SO MUCH! I was working on my contribution for August yesterday and I am feeling pretty excited about it. :)

Omg, so many things to read! I love your dedication to writing different pairings and scenarios/kinks (and oh gosh, your most recent DD! I'll be bookmarking THAT for later, thank you very much) <3

Haha, I try! I have a spreadsheet of pairing and everything... LOL

I love this! I remember that Sirius/Motorcycle. It was one of your firsts to post at DD no?

I love all these, the one from Hugo's POV is also amazing. And then Draco/Remus! Yeah, I love how DD makes you push yourself and try new things. :)

Haha, yup! It was month #2, and it was actually the first one I wrote, because I wasn't sure if I would do January, and then got hit by random inspiration... :)

I'm glad you like the Hugo one. Still one of the weirder things I've written I think, but I'm really pleased with how it came out. :D

Ohhh, I knew it! :D I mean, I knew it was one of the firsts you wrote, but it makes sense if it's also the first I read even if it was the second DD fic to get posted. ;)
