Oh, dear flist! You guys made my birthday so extra fantastic. I just can't thank you all enough. It was an awesome start to another year. I sure love being able to lose myself in the wizarding world!
Thank you for the messages from shiftylinguini
. I loved getting notifications through the day from you all! <3
Also, thanks to digthewriter
for the virtual gifts! My first v-gifts EVER! And both chocolatey treats. How'd you guess?!?!
But I also want to make sure you all read those awesome b-day fics that were written for me. FOR ME!!! I really didn't know what to expect from my first birthday in fandom. I love the tradition you all have of writing birthday gifts for friends and have enjoyed so many of the birthday fics you've written for each other. I dared hope I might get one or two and I'm just thrilled with the gifts I've been showered with! Hugs and kisses to you lovelies!!
If you haven't already, check these out:
First was Coded Office Missives
that Ms carpemermaid
was so nice to publish a couple of days early so I could spread out my celebrations. It's got some dirty talk and office sexy times and Harry doing some wandless magic that I die for EVERY TIME.
Then the lovely _melodic_
wrote me Tender
and it is 3k of some serious smut. Whoa. Fingering and rimming and blow jobs, OH MY! But with that smut is some nice love and fluffiness underneath. So, tender really does take on two meanings here. ;)
did her thing where the first letter of every sentence spells out the user name. It's called Getting Handsy
. The ending just melted my heart!
And dear gracerene
, although she didn't deliver smut, did give me Harry/Draco with a touch of side James/Teddy. It's called Back to You
and it's from her Are You Mine? 'verse, which I just love! This one made me cry (the good kind of tears) and I loved every word. I don't think you have to have read that 'verse, but if you have it makes this extra awesome.
And lastly, enchanted_jae
wrote a continuation of her Wildside series for me. This is Part 18
so if you haven't read it yet, I highly encourage you to catch up. Especially if you've got a kink for magical tattoos like me. You will not be disappointed!
Thank you all again for all the love!
On another note, I've decided to set some goals for myself for February that I'll save for tomorrow's post. But basically I let myself get a little lost since, like November, and I need to get back to the things that bring me joy. And losing myself in this Harry Potter community just makes me so very happy!
