Hello, my lovelies! I haven't been around much, because - well, I seem to require payback in the karma department; the universe is pissed off at me and life is a pretty joyless ride these days. But every once in a while, my fannish delight resurfaces. And I'm getting closer to actually finishing a fic! Yeah, will wonders never cease. Restoring my pleasure in the written word would go a long way toward making me happier.

But this post actually exists to share a pair of visual pleasures with you. Both Snape-related, of course, as that particular fire refuses to go out. And as with fic writers, we have some marvelous artists scattering splendor across our paths.

First, please hop over to Daily Deviant and bask in the pervy beauty of [livejournal.com profile] akatnamedeaster's NSFW young Snape doing naughty and rather risky things to his equipment. The requested kink is sounding, which is something most of us will not want to try at home, but Kat has created a rosy, sexually luminous image of a school-aged half-clothed Snape (complete with a grey underpants cameo) having it off with a metal rod up his unmentionables. The coloring is sensual and warm, Snape is blitzed on sensation, and I loved the pic on sight.

Sounding Sev

The other piece is by a Russian artist whose work I like a great deal, but this portrait only turns up in an HP gallery that doesn't allow linking to the individual artworks. Thus I'm going to post the pic here under a cut, something I wouldn't normally do because it circumvents the artist's control. If there were any other means of linking you to it, I'd substitute that in a second.

But this is such a dark, intense, beautiful (that's the theme here) portrait that I want to share. I don't know how many fans have run across it, and it's too wonderful to languish unseen. NSFW due to nudity and a flash of arse crack, although it's entirely non-sexual, a view of naked Snape from the back peering over his shoulder like a suspicious, black-eyed raptor.

I have other art recs, but I'll save them for next month when I take a turn on the [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom.

Oh wow, thank you for both these recs. I'm sorry the universe hasn't been treating you very well right now (and I feel you, do I ever feel you), but it's really good to hear from you. And to hear that you're writing too! If there's anything I can do on the universe or fic-reading front, let me know.

Thank you so much for the rec, boo!

I know what you mean about fandom mojo, but I have confidence it'll come back and even if not, you still need to come around since I miss ya'! *hugs*

You're very welcome, love! I've fallen so out of the habit of reccing due to withdrawal into moody tongue-tied (hand-tied? no, too kinky) silence that I've missed a lot of opportunities. I decided I ought to pounce on this one. :)

I haven't given up on personal fannishness yet. The spirit is willing; it's my life-mojo that's hard to predict.

*hugs* Miss you, too!

I've been lurking, but too depleted to do anything creative.

I'd love to get together! My life has grown so small and constricted that I'm starting to climb the walls.

The universe owes you some joy, P. *glares at it* Time for it to pay up!

Glad to hear you're getting some writing done! There's no feeling quite like it. M.

I would love to have some joy come back! I need the replenishment. Right now I feel like half a human being.

I've figured out that the only way I can manage to be productive, writing-wise, is to make an unbreakable date with a friend one afternoon a week and stick to it. We write for two hours or so, and little by little the words accumulate. It's not brilliant, but it's something.

Are you writing at all? It's been some time since I've seen you post fic - or else I've been out of the loop, which is distinctly possible.

From: [identity profile] magnetic-pole.livejournal.com

I like the idea of an unbreakable writing date. I need to institute something like that in my life. Is your friend a fic writer, too, or doing some other kind of writing?

I haven't written anything in ages, sad to say. I've even been creating art for tests. I'm not sure if I'm just in a lull, fannishly, or if my frustation over academic writing is spilling over into the rest of life. But thanks for asking, P. M.

Great to hear from you!

The drawing from the Russian artist is indeed very good. I'll pass on the other one, though. * shudders *

Should there have been a link to the top of the gallery or website? I didn't see one...

Great art, especially the Russian one.

And I do hope you'll finally have some better times ahead of you.

Very intense - I hadn't seen the second before so thanks for sharing.
