Musings and recs. :)  
I was going to make the "Ask me anything" meme that is going around, but after asking (and reading answers) I'm a bit scared. :D You guys are filthy! ILYSM. <3

Reveals are up at dracotops_harry, and, man, it was so much fun guessing with snowgall. :D

It got me thinking though.

I love commenting, I do. And it's just that, whether is a friend's fic, or someone I don't know very well, or someone I've never talked to before, when that author answers me back and say things like, 'This comment made my day!' or 'I'm so happy you like it,' or 'that's exactly what I was trying to say', for that brief moment you've made a connexion with that person, you know?

You made that person feel good, made them smile, and that's powerful, man. And from then on, when I see them again – another fic or art, another fest – I imagine they see my username and I see theirs, and we smile or nod in a, 'hey, I remember you,' kind of way, even if it was a short interaction, we're not strangers any more, because for a moment, they gave me something, a story, an art, a moment in a world they created, and because of my comment, I meant something to them, too. It's wonderful. Comments are

Yeah, okay, I'll shut up. ^^

But, hey, recs! :D

The hp_darkarts's Horror fest Finished posting, and there has been lovely stuff posted there. And by "lovely" I mean totally creepy and awesome. :D

Here are some of my favourites. Scary and awesome stuff ahead – mind the warnings in each post:

And they put a wreath of flowers over his head by otterandterrier @ hp_darkarts | 1,8K | Harry Potter (gen) | R
My notes: What can I say about this fic. God, buried alive!! Terrifying. Jesus, just remembering… *shivers*

Predictable by carowren @ hp_darkarts | 2,7K | Luna Lovegood (gen) | R
My notes: Classic Horror stuff right here. I don't even have words. The world Luna creates in her mind, the world she sees, it's so perfectly horrifying, the descriptions of the madness so vivid. So amazing.

Thou Shalt Not Suffer a Witch to Live by otterandterrier @ hp_darkarts | 19K | Hermione, Ron/Hermione | R
My notes: This one really scared me. Well, they all scared me, but this is… Just imagine if Hermione's parents suddenly act as if Hermione is crazy, they act as if they don't know she's a witch and have her submitted to a mental institution. Well, that's what happens here.


Your Move by primea @ hp_darkarts | Harry, Harry/Draco | PG-13
My notes: Oh my god, this imagine of a Dark!Harry is so, so gorgeous, it simply take your breath away. It's fantastic, Harry is beautiful, but there's a quality to him, a darkness that is, well. Yes, it's amazing.

Keep Watching by writcraft @ hp_darkarts | 0,5K | Harry/Draco | R
My notes: This is a ficlet that comes with art, you have to keep watching, because the effect in the image, along with the story, shocking and so awesome.

And because you might need cheerful stuff, a few from hds_beltane, which is still posting! :D

Past Imperfect, Present Tense by goddess47 @ hds_beltane | 2,4K | Snape/Harry | PG-13
My notes: Sweet, yet so intriguing, you have to keep reading till the end so everything falls in to place. You're not quite sure what's happening – the narration is very effecting that way, but the ending is lovely.

Prophecy Fulfilled by ravenna_c_tan @ hds_beltane | 7,9K | Snape/Draco, Harry/Draco, S/H/D | NC-17
My notes: The premise is, you have to have lost your innocence to cast the Unforgiveables. And Snape is going to take Draco's, and together, they'll take Harry's. It's great and hot in a very dub-con sort of way. Mind the warnings! :D

A Beltane Bond by themightyflynn @ hds_beltane | 7,4K | Snape/Harry/Draco | NC-17
My notes: Hot! It's hot, so lovely at the same time. This is the day when Harry, Draco and Snape bond, we can see glimpses of their relationship, how good they are together. And so very hot. Double penetration!!! Is all I'm saying. :D

Now I'm off to keep asking. Happy weekend, I hope! ♥

I haven't seen or received anything remotely filthy! You should do it. You secretly want to, don't you? See, there's your first question.

*lol* Well, yes, of course! It is fun, asking and replying. I might still do it. :D

I've been wailing like crazy because all these wonderful May things have been happening while I'm so impossibly busy, dear god D: BUT, in any case. You know, I definitely agree with you. I like that about comments -- how they might possibly make someone happy, when they see them, possibly make them feel good, make them want to write more (I AM DESPERATELY SELF-SERVING!) So that's why I leave them. That's what got me to start leaving them, anyway -- and it also doesn't hurt how I've met some wonderful people through my comments! :)

I'm so behind on reading Dark Arts this year! I blame the busy times, again! D: Though I think I did manage to read all the HD pieces, so at least that's good? :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on May 9th, 2015 10:15 pm (UTC)
Gosh, you meet so many wonderful people when you comment. Some of my dearest friendships began with a comment. <333

Definitely good! And just today I realised there's one fic I haven't read yet. I'm going to make my night out of it. Horror fic + night time = super. ^^

You are one of the sweetest and most genuine people I've ever met, and I'm honored to call you my friend. I love what you've said about reading and commenting and nodding! Don't ever shut up. :-) *HUGS YOU*

And you should totally do the Ask Me meme! I promise I won't ask you anything embarrassing about lotion. :-D

But I TOTALLY will. Merlin! Did you see what she asked ME?
Avid Supporter of the Booty Floolq_traintracks on May 9th, 2015 06:15 pm (UTC)
LMAO, no! But I'm running over there now as fast as my fingers can take me! :-DDDDD
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on May 9th, 2015 10:16 pm (UTC)
I'm scared!!!! LOL
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on May 9th, 2015 10:16 pm (UTC)
*HUGS* I often just feel silly, but hey, I embrace it! :))

LOLOL Yeah, sure you won't. ;) I will! Honest to god, I will. ^^

You know, maybe it's me who's been asking filthy questions here and there. LOL

*hugs* It's not weird at all! I haven't met you for a long time but you know, when I went to ask you, the first thing that popped in my head was 'why are you so lovely???' but I figured it was a bit of a strange thing to ask. :D

Well, those questions are fun! I've tried to keep them G-rated as well. Tried, yeah. :)

I love being here, I think it shows, eh? It's wonderful. *hugs* don't go missing again!

You so perfectly describe the joy of commenting! This :)

Also, I was rummaging through my UK holiday pictures, and I found a pretty nice (if I may say so) picture of a desolate phone booth. Did I remember correctly you have a soft spot for UK phone booths? (I hope so, otherwise I'm feeling like sort of a Crazy Phone Booth Lady, tricking other people into a phone booth obsession by planting this into their heads :P)
If, however, I am correct, I'll try to post it for you today.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on May 9th, 2015 10:21 pm (UTC)
<333 It is a joy!

And yes, yes! I'm the one that has a HUGE soft spot for UK phone booths! Do post it, please! (If you haven't? I just logged in after hours off). I love them! Can't wait!

You have encapsulated the joy of giving and receiving comments perfectly! Do not shut up, keep singing it, sister. ♥
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on May 9th, 2015 10:22 pm (UTC)
*hugs you tight*
smirkingcatsmirkingcat on May 9th, 2015 04:56 pm (UTC)
i totally agree with you!
and i must say somehow commenting has become my vice- i want to tell the authors just how much i liked there works, and what i find great in them and how they touched me- or let them know when the robbed me of all my words
and when leave a comment i also hope that they get a nice feeling - like the one they gave me- back and keep creating so that i can find it and come back to comment on more XD

and i totally agree with your connection -theory! and its fun, its like sharing a little bit of the same world in our minds (the happy, fluffy part)
comments are totally ♥♥♥

i also most confess i am way to big of a scarey-cat to go into horror fics Y_Y - i know i miss out so much- but i also know i would not be able to handle it *confession*
but its good to hear you enjoyed it so much <3
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on May 9th, 2015 10:23 pm (UTC)

Yes, that's exactly it! :)

Awww, it's quite fine if you're not into horror - obviously. :D But it has been a lot of fun for us fans of the genre. :)

It's a wonderful way to give and receive. :)

It's been fun seeing the answers and asking questions. Get to know someone a little more, silly things, meaningful things. Much fun.
Bring forth the tale of dicksbirdsofshore on May 9th, 2015 06:12 pm (UTC)
Only ONE person asked me something filthy (several things filthy, actually). IT WAS YOU.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on May 9th, 2015 10:29 pm (UTC)
LOL! I'm sorry? Only, I'm totally not. ^^

Come on, you liked it. ;) I go where no one dares! Also, now I want a kinky glove fic. Oh yeah.

Ahhh, comments. You have reminded me that I have become the WORST at replying to comments! It's weird, I used to love reading the comments as they trickled in and either replying immediately to each one as it did, or wait none too patiently for the fest to go un-anon so I could run and comment back in one fell swoop.

But lately, man, if more than two come in the same day (which doesn't happen hardly ever unless it's a fest or something) it's like I get overwhelmed with the whole thing and that's just ridiculous.

Man. I guess I'm out of practice. I should work on that. *goes to respond to comments from long ago fics*


But yes, I love the connection of it and it's one of the things I miss! One of the MANY things.

*hugs* You're just out of practice. ;) You need to get back to it because it's such a joy, you know?

And i loveee when you do to mines. <333
