Most of you probably already have heard the terrible news that Rosesanguina (renamed anjenue) was killed yesterday in a car crash.
I knew Anj purely through her writing. I invited her to join hp_literotica almost exactly 3 years ago today because I saw something beautiful and emergent in what she put onto paper. She had a lyrical sense of touch and taste that communicated itself almost effortlessly without getting lost in her own prose. A loss is always tragic, but talent lost so young is heartbreaking.
I'm just honoured she was a member here.Here are a couple of snippets from the stories she posted on the community
They fought for an ecumenical existence, he remembers, mind floating falling in that state between dreaming and awake; a life where all could live in harmony, could learn to coexist, to learn from each other share with each other enjoy each other be as one and not hate or fear or fight or die, could just be, live and let live, to remove sense of superiority, to accept and connect and find that elusive peace that was so longed for and never reached, to find that universally shared desire, and see eye to eye (grey to hazel) and join (clasp) hands and feel as one (joined forever). But in this place, where dreams abound, there is one thing Sirius has learned, one thing he will never forget.
Pansy moans, fingers sticky with pomegranate and need twining in Blaise's hair and around Blaise's hips and against Blaise's back and arms and chest and face as she pushes off the glossy ground and arches into him, slender unmarked arms twisting round his neck as their stomachs slide together slick and damp and salty with ocean and sweat. Her breasts are cool against his chest, nipples dark and taut against the smooth white perfection of her skin, and he dips his head to taste -- berry-sweet in English cream, he thinks, just like home, but home is long gone, long left behind and all but forgotten, and then she hisses, dragging him closer and grinding upward against his aching cock, and nothing else matters but this.
Title: The Most Beautiful Person I Know (The Black on Black Remix) Author: starrysummer Pairing: Remus/Sirius (Sirius/Bellatrix, Sirius/Regulus) Summary: Sirius says his whole family is doomed, and he says I'm the most beautiful person he knows (but James brags of the wine that he nicks at the parties I'm not allowed to). Rating: PG-13 Warnings: Incest, mild violence. Author's Notes: Written for remixredux as a remix of "Phenomenon of Fire" by Rachel McFaith. Thanks to happiestwhen and anjenue for beta-reading this for me. Section headers come from the original story. Rachel's original version was unavailable online, so this never got posted anywhere, but I thought it'd be appropriate to repost it here today, as she's posted hers as a last-day tribute. Thanks again to underlucius and all the mods for inviting me and for putting together such a wonderful place for HP fanfiction and for writing.
Title: Twilight Haze And Filtered Moonlight Author: Rachel McFaith bloodrebel333 Pairing: Sirius/Regulus Author's Note: For Kala lover_of_slash. Number three of three fics I've posted tonight as a tribute to this community. A farewell to hp_literotica. Thankyou, underlucius/erastes, for the patience, effort and love you put into this.
Title: Before Touching Skin Author: Rachel McFaith bloodrebel333 Pairing: Tom/Minerva Author's Note: Written eons ago for pre_raphaelite1 (right after she wrote that hot multi-chaptered Tom/Minerva fic referring to them as Him and Her), but never got to post it. Second of three stories I'm posting tonight as a tribute to hp_literotica.
Before Touching Skin
She speaks and presses lips with an air of consistency, breathes and refrains from breathing with a gleam of predatory rebellion, sleeps and represses sleep with a lacquered flash of divinity. He is the same.
When she arches, her breath hitches so fast that it hurts her, and her eyes claw into her lover’s while she shouts her own name hoarsely to the night. He is the same.
When she moans, there’s a savage edge to it that only they know of, and nails flash into the night in the red before it touches skin. He is the same.
When she fights, it has the seeming of savage slicing with a wand, and a lady who knows when strength belies, is never the fool in reckless condescend. He is the same.
When she sleeps, her eyes are motionless voyeurs to her veiled fate, legs imprisoners of what she doesn’t wish to release. He is the same.
When she dies, it is as if jade has been lost in a sea of moss, and her imperium is but a shade of glory to remember, but never feel. He is still the same.
Title: Twenty Thousand Wilting Lovers Author: Rachel McFaith bloodrebel333 Pairing: Implied Bella/Voldemort, Bella/Narrator Word Count: 367 Author's Note: Written for Emma monifieth's birthday. Thanks to sasha_davidovna, W. and txilar for beta/readthrough/suggestions. First of three stories I'm planning to post tonight.
Title: James the Greater Author: good_conduct Characters: James/Lily Rating: PG-13 (implied sex and a perhaps a cuss or two) Word Count: 968 Summary: New Years at Peter’s flat is a welcomed deception. Note: The beginnings of a gift for lemongrove. Sadly, after my invitation to this wonderful community, I never got around to posting. I found myself deeply devoid of motivation and inspiration to write for a very long time. This story is quite unfinished, and the precursor to another, still unwritten part I had hoped to title James the Less. Here it is, in hopes it serves as a somewhat adequate goodbye to a community that gave me so much joy and fed my love of the written word. Cheers, and thank you all.
TITLE: Delirium RATING: R PAIRING: Sirius/Regulus WARNINGS: incest, self-harm, blood, angst NOTES: I regret not having posted more to this community, and thus I'd like to at least contribute something to the long list of goodbye hp_literotica stories, because it has nevertheless been great to be a part of this, and I'm sorry to see it close down. Hopefully I am not too late. ♥
A huge thanks to the moderators of this community for being so very, very wonderful! I've enjoyed every minute of being a member of hp_literotica, and y'all should be proud of the amazing thing you've done for fandom with this comm. Long live hp_literotica!
Title: Desecration Author: Sionnain Pairing: Bellatrix/Rodolphus Summary: Upon the high altar, two figures carry out a travesty of worship while the night watches from beyond. Rating: R Warnings: Slight knife-play, very strong elements of blasphemy. Please be warned that if you are easily offended by such, you may not like this at all.

Like hp_literotica, the community is invite-only, though we encourage you to watch the community in order to keep track.

This short ficlet was something I promised to underlucius quite some time ago, and is my farewell and tribute to hp_literotica and its wonderful founder and mods. It has been an honour and a privilege to be a member of this community, and I thank you all for the good times I've had here, both as anathdemalfoy and gabriel_anubis.

Many hugs and much love.

Title: Things Invisible to See Author: Thistlerose Characters/Ships: Harry, Regulus Rating: PG Word Count: approx. 800 Summary: For the Dialogue is Good Practice challenge. Regulus wants to help Harry find one of the missing Horcruxes, but he wasn't a particularly charitable person in life, and in death he's not much better.
Title:Phenomenon Of Fire. Author:Rachel McFaith. bloodrebel333. bloodrebel333</lj>Pairing: Sirius/Remus. Hints at Sirius/Regulus, Sirius/Bellatrix and Remus/Bellatrix. Rating: PG-13. Warning: Implied Blackcest, mild violence, slash. Word-Count: 526. Author's Note: This was one of the two fics that got me into this community, and I should've posted it a long time ago.

The nuttiness herein was my doing.
A/N: Written for the_gentleman for the Harry Potter Slash Wedding Ficathon. Requirements were: flamboyantly gay Albus, Wizarding Church of England, and a dodgy uncle. I had a few problems with parts of it, but I hope this is close to what was wanted!
Title: In White Author:kethlenda Pairing: Tom/Minerva Rating: R Word Count: 1292 Disclaimer: While I would be delighted if book 7 revealed a secret adolescent liaison between Ms. McGonagall and Mr. Riddle, I rather doubt it will. Author's Notes: I thought and thought and thought and never did summon up an idea for the Dialogue Challenge, and so as my parting gift to this community. I have written a regular fic instead. ♥ to all of you, omg. Special thanks to sionnain for the beta.
Title: Cinders Author:kethlenda Pairing: Tom/Minerva Rating: PG-13 Word Count: 361 Summary:This is the way it always begins: their heads bent together over some dusty book, poring over incantations by the trembling light of the candle, as if these meetings of theirs were actually about homework. Notes: Just a little ficlet I wrote the other day for sionnain.
Title: In the House of Ice and Silence Author:spessartine Rating: PG-13 Pairing: Tom Riddle/Salazar Slytherin AN: I'm toying with the idea that, during the decade after he left Hogwarts and began his ascendency, Tom went to eastern Europe to further his knowledge of the dark arts.
Title: The Law Inside a Circle Author Name:gehayi Rating: PG Word Count: 1,885 Spoilers: HBP. Written after Half-Blood Prince. Genre: Drama, Darkfic Main Character(s): Fleur and a nameless member of the Werewolf Control Unit (OMC). Summary: Fleur learns that Fenrir biting Bill has led to legal consequences that she didn't expect. Done for the "Conversations" Challenge at hp_literotica. Disclaimer: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by JK Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended. A/N: Fleur's accent is a bit uneven; I'm not very good at writing dialect.
fernwithy and I independently arrived at the theory of how female werewolf fertility works, and why there aren't, as JKR says, any werewolf cubs. Some of you may have seen her version of it in her story "Lines of Descent," a pre-HBP story about the werewolf who bit Remus. (Elizabeth is MUCH nicer than Fenrir.)
The title is from Dar Williams's song "To the Firmament."
Title: The Accounting Author Name:gehayi Rating: G Word Count: 1,980 Spoilers: HBP. Written after Half-Blood Prince. Genre: Drama, General Main Character(s): Regulus and Hermione. Summary: Bad things don't become better when good people do them. Done for the "Conversations" Challenge at hp_literotica. Disclaimer: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by JK Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.
Write a dialogue only piece including two characters who wouldn't normally get together. E.g. Hagrid & Peter, Draco & Sirius, Ron & Scrimgeour.
You don't have to make it plausible why they are together, just imagine (perhaps) that they are both waiting to be interviewed post war, and are closeted together in a small room before their interviews. But any scene will do.
Short as you like - long as you like. Make it any rating (up to R) you like, writing dialogue only smut is a challenge...
Runs till 31st July, it's a good writing exercise, dialogue is good for you!
Fic: Lay Down Author: La Rating: PG-13 Pairing: Remus/Sirius Summary: After, they Apparate home, saturated with rain and blood, and the oily slide of dark magic skidding along Remus’s skin like unfamiliar hands. (post-Hogwarts and a bit angsty.) Thanks to:setissma, miraielle, and statelines
Title: Not Your Superman Pairing: Snape/Harry Rating: PG-13 Length: Drabble (400 words) Summary: Harry has difficulty identifying with his alterego. Kinks: Angsty, but hopeful Disclaimer: Oh, so not mine. This market's been cornered. A/N: Try as I might, I could not ignore the parallels between Harry and Clark Kent/Superman. And yes, this was written under the influence of painkillers. *G*
This is my submission for the poetry challenge. I am awfully sorry this is so late, but I mixed up the deadline date with another one and was convinced it was June 15th, so I told my betas not to hurry. *headdesk*
Title: Shades Of Dust Rating: R Warnings: cursing, suggested self-harm, incest Pairings: Sirius/Regulus, hinted Sirius/Remus and others Poem: I want a hero: an uncommon want, When every year and month sends forth a new one, Till, after cloying the gazettes with cant, The age discovers he is not the true one--"Don Juan" by Lord Byron Beta: javajunkie13 and bloodrebel333 - thank you so much! ♥ Summary: Memories of Egypt. And what prevails. Crossposted
Title: the mermaids too are drowned Author: deathofletters Rating: PG-13 A/N: If you think you've seen this before, you probably have. I'm reposting it from earlier. For the poetry challenge and also last_radio. This started out as Peter-gen, but does have hints of Peter/Rodolphus. Set after the summer of 1980.
And instantly the whole sky burned With fury against them; and soft sudden cups Opened in thousands for their blood; and the green slopes Chasmed and steepened sheer to infinite space. --"Spring Offensive" by Wilfred Owen
As you know, the deadline was today--not that I won't add more Poetry Challenge stories to this list if they come in. Right now, though, this is what has been written. My apologies to non-members whose links were not posted before today. The fault was mine.
Tom's voice had captivated her, making every thing he said sound wonderful even as her soul told her that it was completely wrong. This voice, this was like a snake, a hissing sound that curled around you, caressing before sucking you dry.
To covet, he thinks to himself. He is standing outside on a grey day, smoking, inhaling her or at least he pretends. He wants to covet her. She was his brother's, is now his twin's, and he spends all his time thinking of nothing less than her on her back, legs spread for him, to have her and to be hers.
Sirius drapes himself like a shield over Remus, protective and defensive, and lets Remus adjust to being human again, and to having Sirius shelter him like this, because these are things Remus needs to learn again after the full moon.
Title: Angels and Changelings Pairing: Sirius/Regulus Rating: R to NC-17 Disclaimer: No infringement on copyright is intended. Warnings: incest, mild bondage, cross-dressing, voyeurism, possible dub-con A.N.: Originally written for hp_springsmut. Thanks to wildestranger for the readthrough.
Title: Now the sky is blue Rating: PG (dark themes and vaguely hinted-at dubious consent.) Pairing: Snape/Harry Word Count: 3000 Summary: Memory is precious, and it slips through our fingers like water. Some time after the world ought to have come crashing to an end, but stubbornly refused to do so, most people are trying their very hardest to forget. But there are those who'd like to remember. A/N: The prompt I chose to write was 'Déjà vu'. Thank you to littlecup, midnight_ljc and mjai.
This is the creepiest icon I have. Hence, even though it's an A Song of Ice and Fire icon, I'm using it for a dark HP story.
Title: Touch Author:gehayi Pairing: Peter/Lucius Genre: Darkfic, Slash Rating: R for torture, mindfuck, not-very-graphic foreplay and sex Word Count: 3,235 Disclaimer: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by J.K. Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended. Summary: Torture can break a man. So can what looks like kindness. Author's Notes:fleshdress requested Peter/Lucius for a comment fic. Only it refused to remain small enough for a comment fic.
Thanks to underlucius for the quick beta, and for her suggestions.
Fandom: HP Rating: R Ship: Remus/Sirius Summary/Notes: This is for bibliotropic, who wanted a story in which Remus is a librarian. And also, a big, fat literary allusion. And Leonard Cohen. And a bottle of red wine. And the word tenderness. (So, it's like a scavenger hunt. And I was totally stretching on a few ingredients. But I hope it's all right!) A/N: Approx. 1,530 words.
I've not posted anything here for a very, very long time, mainly because I haven't finished anything in a long time, and I wanted to rectify that. This piece is almost a year old now, written fairly soon after I became actively involved in fandom, but for some reason I never put it here. I've got a soft spot in my heart for it, even though I know there are some mistakes, and I've just left it as it was.
Pairing: Harry/Ron Rating: R Category: Angst, Drama, Romance Warnings: umm, slash?, alcohol consumption, character death, HBP spoilers Disclaimer: Until such time as I perfect my diabolical body-switching device, I am sadly not J.K. Rowling, and her characters/settings remain in her posession. I am merely borrowing them to exercise my overactive imagination, and shall return them unharmed when I'm finished! Description:In the aftermath of war and personal tragedy, our heroes find that going on with life is not as easy as they'd wish, and that seeking solace in one another is not such a bad idea after all.
Title: Anodos Author:kethlenda Disclaimer: None of this is mine, not even the garden, which really exists. Pairing: Neville/Hannah Word count: 1,362 Rating: G Warnings: Fluff, and gratuitous use of St. Louis, Missouri. Summary: Hannah has been hiding from the world since her mother's death, but one day a chance meeting changes everything. A/N: Old-ish. Written for jenw118 in the nevillosity Late Bloomer Ficathon. Thanks to sionnain for looking this over.
Title: A Heaven in Hell’s Despair Author: Sionnain Fandom: Harry Potter Summary: He chose a diamond over everything else, and Lucius Malfoy has never regretted his decision. Pairings: Lucius/Narcissa, mention of Bellatrix/Rodolphus Rating: PG13 Warning: None, though it’s a bit angsty.
Title: Jasmine and Butter and Bread Author: spessartine Pairing: Rabastan Lestrange/Tom Riddle, Rabastan/Bellatrix Rating: Hard R Warning: Graphic violence, apocalyptic sex. Huzzah! Prompt: "the ballroom at midnight" from 7spells. Table is here
Title: All That Stays Is Dying, All That Lives Is Getting Out Author: victoria p. Summary: Happiness is unfamiliar territory now, indistinct in the distance, with a thousand traps for the unwary on the way. Pairing: Sirius/Remus Notes: Title from "Urge for Going" by Joni Mitchell; written for the hp_literotica poetry challenge. Word count: 655 words
[title] but the mermaids are gone (Luna/Draco; implied Harry/Luna, Harry/Draco, Blaise/Draco) [author] deora_mystic [summary] during the war, some fall easier than others. [ratings/warnings] PG / violence, angst, slightly AU. [length] ~800 words [notes] manymany cookies&smooches to jazzyjello for a terrific beta; any remaining mistakes are stubbornly mine. [feedback] is greatly appreciated :) ; i haven't written in... too long and i feel a bit rusted?
Literotica is a condensation of "literary erotica," in this case, Harry Potter literary erotica. What do we mean by this? "It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive," or "It is better to describe and experience every nuance of feeling and arousal rather than to experience the pinnacle of climax". As has been said, porn is the arrival, erotica is the journey.
