New Fic!

The fic I wrote for the Threesome Big Bang has been posted! This story was a true labor of love for me, and may be my favorite fic of those I've written - though near the end of it I was ready to kill someone, LOL.

The community has sole posting rights during the fest, but I've reposted the header below with a link to the community. Don't miss the gorgeous banner the mods made for the story! It gave me chills when I saw it.

Title: All Our Times Have Come
Rating: NC-17
Characters: Snape/Harry, Draco/Michael Corner, Snape/Draco/Harry
Warnings: Explicit, graphic depictions of domestic violence, including mental and physical abuse and partner rape, non-sexual violence and gore, and a brief mention of mpreg (there is no actual mpreg in the story)
Summary: The return of a murderous vigilante group changes three men’s lives forever.
Disclaimer: Harry Potter characters are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No profit is being made, and no copyright infringement is intended.
Author’s Notes: Title comes from Blue Oyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear the Reaper”. A million thanks to uniquepov and literaryspell for their fantastic beta work – I can’t express the depth of my appreciation!

All Our Times Have Come

EDIT: Apparently the fest entries are friends-locked! *shakes fist* You can join the community if you'd like, though membership is moderated, so you have to wait to be approved. I totally understand if people don't want to do that. The fic will be posted (unlocked!) to this journal as soon as the fest is over.

*CLICKS HARD*

:(

Not your fault, I know, but I do so hate when comms and fests lock entries. Especially if they won't let you post it yourself publicly.

*wanders off to join, because lakjsdfljsaf FIC BY YOU!* ♥

Aack! I had no idea it was locked, LOL. Sorry about that. TBH, that kind of annoys me, too!

Oh no, don't be sorry! I was mostly just expressing my disapproval in passive ways in case anyone associated with the fest should stop by and see. La. Saves me from going over there to express my disapproval, when it's really not my business since I'm not in that fest.

But yes, dear all mods: if you want a successful fest, you need to have entries people can read. Shocking, I know. Set things to 'adult content' if you want, but locking doesn't do anything but annoy actual potential readers.

But YOU are lovely, and I can't wait to read! ♥

Haha! It's definitely frustrating. It always seems to me like these communities that have moderated membership and age statements and locked posts and the whole nine yards are kind of going overboard. Especially if they're having a fest! It's a little self-defeating.

Oh well, to each their own. I hope you like the fic - it was such a huge part of my life for so long that I'm really excited for people to finally read it!

As it happens, a fest mod DID stop by and see your comment. =)

The NC-17 fics are locked b/c we have mods in various countries with differing pornography laws and we were uncomfortable leaving the NC-17 posts open to underage readers. While we know it's annoying to have to have membership approved, we're hoping that prompts folks to join the comm and enjoy all the lovely submissions we've had.

Fair enough. Your fest, your rules. Like I said, it's not my business. :) But it means a smaller fest and fewer readers for your authors, that's all. For instance, while the quibbler_report watcher journal watches that comm looking for good rarepair fic to rec, a locked entry won't show up, so we won't see/rec it. Same for the daily_snitch. So the authors have less exposure that way. And as I understand it, LJ has never required locking adult material; there are those new-ish settings so that a cut-tag to a logged-out person can say "You are about to view adult content," which LJ does want us to use, but that's still a public post.

But what do I know. Apparently the U.S. government is in hearings right now to basically ban the internet, gaaaah, so fighting for free and easy access to porn will become a moot point. o_O.

Fair point, and one we did talk about while debating what to do with the fest. It's a really delicate balance for keeping things accessible vs. keeping folks protected. For example, on my personal journal, I have marked everything as explicit content (even though most of it's not) and left it un-friends-locked. But several countries - Canada and Britain, for example - new pornography laws are making it difficult to justify leaving things unlocked. Recently, a US citizen returning home from Canada was arrested under child pornography laws for having a manga comic book in his posession - even though the book clearly said 'for adults' and the guy was well over 18 - the border guards called it 'child porn' because of the appearance of the (cartoon) characters. I know quite a few mods who got a little twitchy, after that, myself included.

All we can do is keep dialogues like these going, and maybe between all of us, we'll come up with a brilliant solution!

Until, as you say, the US manages to ban the internet. Which... yeah. Typical.

Literaryspell pimped this to me a few weeks ago and then was like, "Oh, wait, you can't read it yet." But now it's here! *bounces*

Except no, it's not here. *wails* Snape/Harry/Draco is my OT3, and it's so rare, and . . . and I WANTED to read this, dammit.

*goes back to waiting in her corner*

I just found out the entries are locked myself! :-(

I know it's super-annoying, but you can read it if you join the comm. Though the membership is moderated, which sucks because it means you have to wait to be approved. I'm so sorry! I don't know why the fest is locking its entries. *pouty face*

Oh, no worries--not your fault. I'm awaiting membership as we speak, darling! :)

It's such a good fic, bb. =)

Thank you! You were so great with your last-minute rescue. ♥

BTW, do you know who made the banner? I adore it.

ginny_lv_harry made your banner.

Also: fics are locked b/c we have mods in various countries with differing pornography laws and we were uncomfortable leaving the NC-17 posts open to underage readers. While we know it's annoying to have to have membership approved, we're hoping that prompts folks to join the comm and enjoy all the lovely submissions we've had.

I love your fics, I can't wait to read this one.

Thank you! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. :-)

Everything Lee said. What is up with mods these days. Damn youngers. *shakes fist with you*

But, eeee! I am so psyched for this. :D

Hee, thanks! I hope you enjoy it. :-)

For your fics I will gladly join a comm :)

(and anyway it looks like it has potential - lol)


Aw, thanks! I hope you like it. :-)

This was fantastic. I loved all the characters, the plot was captivating, the smex scorching. (Had to stay up waaay after my usual bedtime to finish reading it:))) Thanks for such a great experience!

You're welcome, and thanks for reading! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I put a lot of my heart and soul into this fic. :-)

Excuse me but I'm a bit confused right now :D
You said you would post it on your journal when the fest is over and I just wanted to know how long I still have to wait to read it here.
You are one of my favourite authors and I check your journal nearly every day, because I'm just dying to finally read it :)
You are gorgeous <3


- sorry for my bad English :D

Hey, sorry for the confusion! I did originally intend to post the fic here right after the fest ended, but then I decided it would be best to wait until after all of the holiday fests are done posting so that it doesn't get lost in a sea of fics. So it won't be posted to my journal until January. Sorry again! You can join the community if you don't want to wait until then.

And thank you so much for your kind words! They really put a smile on my face. :-)

Please Please Please :)
Now that January has come and all the christmas fests are done there is nothing that can stop you from finally posting your fic here. Again, I would soo love to read it <3
I really hope I'm not getting on your nerves. I'm just a really impatient person :D
