Look what I just got gifted!

It's set in the same universe as Sick and Tired of What to Say (No One Listens Anyway), and it's super cute and made my freaking week.

Fic: A Very Dresden (and Potter) Sequel
Author: Perpetual Motion
Fandom: Dresden Files (TV)/Harry Potter
Pairings: Harry Dresden/Bob; Harry/Snape
Rating: PG
Summary: Set soon after Harry, Harry, Snape, and Bob, a tiny sequel with a little bit of domestic bliss, some good news, and a small fire (it is Dresden after all).

Dis: Lies and bullshit, as always.

Author's Notes: For [personal profile] leaper182, who requested it. I hope you like it, hon! Self-betaed. First person to spot a typo gets a pony! (Pony not guaranteed.)

So cute it's probably illegal. )

Title: It's a Strange Way to Tell You
Author: Perpetual Motion
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Percy/Oliver
Rating: PG
Summary: Compromises, slightly embarrassing revelations, and Percy being mildly clueless. Oh, and nothing at all that looks like angst.

Dis: Bullshit and lies.

Author's Notes: This is in the Ben Folds's universe, home of In Between Days and The Luckiest. This story is much lighter than the first and much shorter than both. The title of this piece comes from the lyrics of "The Luckiest." It's also a holiday fic for [livejournal.com profile] shoshannagold, who is the awesome beta on those stories! I hope you like it, honey!

I'll try to put wonderfully dirty sex in the next one, dear. )

Title: The Luckiest [2/2]
Author: Perpetual Motion
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Percy/Oliver
Rating: R
Summary: A direct sequel to "In Between Days" in which the war is over, but not really and book 7 continues to be completely ignored. Percy works for the Ministry, Oliver is a touch shady, Tonks and Shacklebolt prove their level of badass, and love is warm and gooey [most of the time]. Also, Seamus plays chorus, and The Golden Trio barely get a nod.

Author's Notes: I will never be able to say enough nice things about [livejournal.com profile] shoshannagold. She is amazing. I wish every writer could have one. Any errors left in this story are entirely my own fault. And thank you to everyone who's been so excited to see the follow-up to "In Between Days" and has been happily following the growth of "Electric Boogaloo" [the non-serious working title]. You're all wonderful. Hope this meets up with expectations. The title of the story comes from the Ben Folds's song of the same name.

Disclaimer: Bullshit. Completely.

Read this.

It's Cedric/Harry. Harry comes out as bi, and it makes Cedric realize he's gay. It's touching and sweet, and Harry's kind of a cheeky bastard.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to beat up the last couple of scenes.

The Fisher King

Percy/Moody; it's equal parts heartbreaking, sweet, and rough. Picks up post-book 5 and carries on through the rest of the series. The ending gives me massive warm fuzzies.

Title: In Between Days [3/3]
Author: Perpetual Motion
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Percy/Oliver
Rating: R
Summary: Wherein book 7 is completely ignored because wars don't tend to happen so quickly; Percy Weasley runs a safehouse [because that's as close to administrative work as you can get in a war], and everyone gets a chance to play minor character bingo. Get your cards and markers ready!

Disclaimer: Lies and bullshit.

Author's Notes: Just ignore book 7. I sure did. Title taken from the Ben Folds song of the same name because I am crap at titles if left on my own. This fic would not be nearly as good without the excellent work of [livejournal.com profile] shoshannagold, who found the time in her incredibly insane schedule to nitpick like a champ. You are aweseomesauce, dear, and I thank you.

Would like to murder the fucking contract people whose response to our "When can we expect you on Monday" was, "Oh, just because they say we'll be there on Monday doesn't mean we'll be there on Monday."

I wish I were kidding.

But, you know what? I have wicked-hot Snape/Hermione porn to rec, and just enough of a wireless signal to do it. It's called "Tequila Shots". I found it at [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom, and my personal synopsis goes like this:

Snape and Draco run a bar. Harry and Hermione come in one night. Draco decides to shag Harry, and Snape had Hermione have ridiculously hot sex in a supply closet.

This story gets +5 awesome for writing Hermione as someone who is smart and comfortably sexual, as opposed to the "Eeek, a penis!" way she's sometimes written. Good times. Good, smutty times. It has made the day infinitely better.

EDIT: Oh, for fuck's sake, you probably want the link, right?

Here you go

Fucking hell.

Given, Oliver does not appear in this scene, but I'm really, really proud of it. Also, it's not porn, so my icon is a dirty liar.

perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (serious business)
As I continue to write fic.

I just found a fic that explains Percy's high-strung ways through his having a childhood trauma. And the fic is all about him healing and becoming fun and lovable. I'm not against the idea of Percy getting some character development [hell knows JK skipped most of it], but I also rather like Percy as the uptight one. Can he be somewhat unstrung? Sure. But I'd rather see it happen through character development that doesn't require the TRAGIC PAST (tm) marker.

Personally, I've always assumed that Percy's uptightness comes from remembering the first war. According to the Lexicon, Percy was born in 1976, and James and Lily were killed in 1981. This makes Percy 5 at the end of the first war, and I always figured he spent those five years living in some type of fear. Ron and Ginny would be too young to remember the first war [Ron would have been barely 1 at the end, Ginny was only a few months old]; the twins would only be about 3, so their chances of remembering specifics is fairly slim, and Bill and Charlie were most likely kept at Hogwarts for safety reasons. So who helps Molly and Arthur as they work on Order business and try to save the world? Tiny Percy, who probably spent the first five years of his life watching people run in and out of his house in various states of fear and exhaustion.

So Percy goes through his days doing exactly what's expected of him because, in his very formative years, he was the one who helped keep an eye on the babies and made sure everyone got tucked in. It's not that Molly and Arthur weren't there, but that war makes people keep strange hours, and sometimes the only person who could get the twins to calm down and go to sleep was Percy.

But, on the other hand, I can also see Percy having a wickedly sharp sense of humor. I base this on the fact that all the Weasleys have a good sense of humor, and I figure Percy's is just buried under the layer of SERIOUS BUSINESS (tm) that he carries at all times. I think that Penelope probably saw it, and Percy's roommates probably knew he was a deadpan snarker, but that no teachers ever caught him at it because Percy knows very well how to hide in plain sight.

And Percy blew off his family and trusted the Ministry because it was safer. They said a war wasn't coming, and Percy really, really wanted to believe that, and so he stuck his head in the sand. Not because he's an uptight weasel who hates his family, but because it was easier for him to accept the lie. Because if he accepted the truth, everyone would be in danger again, and he doesn't want to deal with that again.

So, that's my theory, in brief. Anyone got one on other HP characters [or your own version of Percy]?

Title: Sick and Tired of What to Say (No One Listens Anyway) [4/4]
Author: Perpetual Motion
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Neville/Snape
Rating: R [dark themes and sex; mostly the dark themes]
Summary: Wherein I take a giant leap from set-ups in book 7 to create a post-war wizarding world that isn't quite the bright shiny penny we get in the epilogue. Neville gets whumped a bit; Severus acts a touch more well-rounded; Hermione is confident and caring; a bunch of new teachers get vaguely silly names, and there are quotes from Monty Python.

Disclaimer: Lies! Oh, so many lies!

Author's Notes: This came out of nowhere and grew up fast, save the last five thousand words or so, which slowly unfolded while I waited with a measure of impatience. There are quotes from various Monty Python projects scattered throughout (and used with a purpose). Trust me on that. Title comes from the Flogging Molly song "Float", which played on repeat with a few other tunes while I pieced this thing together. Much love to [livejournal.com profile] distaff_exile who betaed the crap out of this, kept me from repeating myself, and kept me from repeating myself. You're fab, my dear.

And the story just took another left turn.

Poor Neville.

I'd post something to entice you, but I'm not sure what to post. But there must be something I can share.

Oh! Wait! I know! The new Astronomy professor is named Walter Nomos. And the charms professor is Grace Wickersham. And Nomos sticks his foot in his mouth.

Yay! Sharing! )

So, enjoy that. I'm gonna go find my next left turn.
perpetual_motion: hang yourself please (\o/)
scene-ish thing )

I think I'm gonna write this thing in bits and bobs and then make them all fit together near the end. I tend to write my stories from point A to point B and while that works for me about 95% of the time, there are stories that have gotten stuck simply because I'm at point A, want to get to point C, and can't figure out how to write point B. Never hurts to stretch my writing skills, and perhaps writing out-of-sync will provide more fodder, yes?

And now, French homework.
