KITTEN

Look at this small, perfect baby ♥

Belial, the small prince

My housemate has gone to get the kitten :D

As far as names go, it was a choice between Mortimer and Orion (thank you to everyone who voted btw, it helped in the first stage of name choosing :D)

My housemate's mum hates the name Orion, so Mortimer was in the lead until the second name brainstorming session.

Dracula was a close contender (but we agreed it would sound more than a little bit nerdy shouting the name 'Dracula' outloud xD) so the most likely name the kitten is going to come home to is Belial (pronounced bee-lee-al) which is basically another name for the devil/the second in command. Which will fit his big sister who is called Eris (the Greek goddess of strife and discord)

Kitten names

So my housemate is getting a kitten :D It's a black oriental breed, and needs a name. Both of us are nerdy goths so the list reflects that xD So if you could please vote for your favourite (or comment with other suggestions)

Tomarry Prompts

I know a lot of you don't care for Tom/Harry, but I would really appreciate it if you answered this poll to say which of these storylines sounds most interesting to you.

I am writing for the Tomarry Big Bang on Tumblr, and I'm trying to narrow down my prompt options :)

Thank you ^_^

Poll #2046405 Tomarry Prompts

Which Tomarry story sounds best to you?

Tom is a much loved DADA teacher at university and secretly a Dark Lord, and Harry is his student who finds himself drawn to Tom. Tom is as equally fascinated by Harry
3(50.0%)
Nurmengard is home to some of the Darkest witches and wizards in the world. It is here that eager new psychiatrist Harry meets the seemingly normal Tom Riddle (think Hannibal/Clarice and Joker/Harley)
1(16.7%)
Tom is Minister for Magic and has made life incredibly difficult for Muggle-borns and half-bloods. Harry is a stripper and part-time rentboy who robs his pureblood tricks. Tom doesn't mind this so much when he finds out Harry owns two of the Hallows
1(16.7%)
Dumbledore murdered Tom when he was barely out of Hogwarts, realising what Tom would soon become. The magical world is at peace, until many years later Harry accidentally resurrects Tom, who is out to get revenge of those who wronged him

REC: A Better Bargain Driven

A Better Bargain Driven by anonymous (for now)

Summary: Two years of war. Draco’s forgotten what it’s like to want something possible. But now, he has two things: the possibility of freedom from the Dark Lord, and Harry Potter’s arse. Perhaps not in that order.

Rating: Mature

Warnings: Torture, use of a truth potion, dub-con at the beginning (which I feel can be viewed as non-con but I can see how this is debatable)

*

I've never actually made a proper rec before, but this story made me want to.

It's set in a slight-AU, with Voldemort's war running a little differently, going on for longer. The story's main focus is on Draco, and it's such a wonderful insight into his character.

It begins with Draco living as a Death Eater and how that affects him, and then brings Harry into the story.

The characterisation in this fic are absolutely spot-on. The writing is powerful and intense, and really brings this world to life. This is a dark!fic, and though the warnings aren't a massive part of the story, you probably shouldn't read this if you want a light read. But if you're up for a war-centred fic with wonderful character building and a great storyline, then this is the story for you.
I am doing a sponsored weight loss to raise money for Alzheimer's Society! I am trying to lose 2 stone in 6 months (by October 8th) so please donate if you can, or share the link:

JustGiving

Alzheimer's and Dementia is a cause very close to my heart, as I work with people who are in the later stages of the disease. I've seen how it effects not just them, but their loved ones as well, and Alzheimer's Society does a wonderful job in helping them.

Thank you x

Writing Commissions Open!

Ok, so I am in a terrible financial situation at the moment (I need another £150 just to pay my bills, and then there’s the rest of the month without money). I'm super stressed about all this, and my mental health is being very badly affected.

So I'm doing commissions but not in the usual way. Basically if you can donate anything, no matter how much or how little, I will write something for you as a way of saying thank you.

Harry Potter is my main fandom, but I will write any fandom and any pairing as long as I know them enough.

My paypal is at: leontinastardust@gmail.com

Once you've donated just message me and we can talk about what writing you want. I'm sorry I've had to ask this, but I don't know what else I can do.

Even if you can’t donate, please signal boost this to try and get the word out, thank you <3
I thought losing David Bowie was hard, but now Alan Rickman's died and it hurts even more. Harry Potter has basically been my life, and Alan Rickman was a massive part of that. And he was such a talented actor and came across as a genuinely nice man. I'm so sad, and I can't imagine what his family are going through

R.I.P Alan

R.I.P DAVID BOWIE

To my dearest Starman,

The world isn't going to be the same without you. You were such an inspiration to me, this wonderfully unique man who showed me it was okay to be different. Your songs and lyrics spoke to me when I was growing up, and made me feel like I wasn't alone. I must have listened to 'Changes' so many times now and it still speaks to me. I don't think I'd be where I am now if it wasn't for you.

Nobody else will ever be able to match your talent or creativity. Your voice was stunning, and unique to you. Your songs have so much to love, but now as well as making me feel happy they'll make me sad. I may have never known you personally, but I knew you through your music and knowing you're gone is so difficult, I can't stop myself crying. My thoughts are with your family <3

R.I.P David Bowie, you beautiful star

One of my goals this year is to sign up for less fests (I say already eyeing up the Kinkfest prompts) and start writing more chaptered fics instead, because I feel writing longer stories over more time will help me improve more.

So I have a request for people who have read any of my stories:

1) Do I have a certain style/characteristics that I always include?

2) What are my strong points?

3) What are my weak points?

I really want to get serious with my writing this year, so anyone who can answer these would really help <3

I hope you all have a great new year ♥
