1631: Merry Christmas Daniel & Tragic Christmas Story – Oneshots

 

— WARNING—

— CONTAINS INAPPROPRIATENESS —

 

Generic winter solstice greetings, Patrons!

I hope you are enjoying whatever holiday you may or may not celebrate. Since I’ve finished up with my last fic, I thought I’d follow my pattern from last year and go looking for a holiday-themed oneshots. And, lucky for you, I found quite a few! These two from the Danny Phantom series are both super-short, so today’s a two-fer post!

“WOO-HOO! Double trouble!”

:sigh: Also, Syl is back. And I’m pretty sure she’s drunk.

“Well, your bathtub is full of eggnog and I don’t want it to go to waste.” :sips from giant novelty mug shaped like a reindeer:

What?!?

“You’re welcome!”

:deep, long-suffering sigh: Great.

Just a quick re-cap of the premise for the source materials, since I’ve covered fics from this section before I’m not going to go too in-depth. The animated show follows the adventures of Danny Fenton, who (thanks to a malfunction in one of his parents’ ghost-catching gadgets) can transform into a ghost form called Danny Phantom. Hijinks ensue.

“Sexy hijinks?”

Depends on the fanfic.

A word of warning; while both of these fics are technically Christmas-themed, they are not light and frothy drabbles. Prepare yourself for extremely serious subject matter.

:Syl reaches across the desk and places a festively blinking Santa hat on Ghostie’s head:

…Thanks, that really sets the tone that I was going for.

1553: A Daughter – Chapter Three

Title: A Daughter
Author: Lady Lilith La Belle

Critiqued by Lyle

Good morning, lovelies.  Welcome back to “A Daughter,” a fic that moved at a snail’s pace for first two chapters and suddenly skipped half the year in one paragraph.  Pacing?  What’s pacing?

Last time, Selene Darkness Raven Dementia McNoodlefish attempted to befriend Harry et al, went to Defense Against the Dark Arts, and then skipped half the year and ended up in a really worrisome relationship with Draco where she stays silent when he abuses other people and tries to cover his actions up by giving his victims candy and hugs.

The next chapter is, thankfully, shorter than the previous one.  Onward!

Good morning, everyone!  Welcome back to “A Daughter.”  Last time we met, Cellophane was sorted into Slytherin.  That’s seriously the only thing that happened.

*sets the buzzer out on the desk*

This thing is up to 15 and we’re only starting the second chapter.  It’s a bit longer than the previous installments, but a good chunk of today is just the lyrics to “Nights in White Satin”.

My apologies to The Moody Blues.

Welcome back, dearest patrons, to the suckfest that is “A Daughter.”  Last time, we met Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way Selene Amelia Badelia Anna Banana Melinda-Belynda Serpentine.  She made the Sue Counter hit 10 before the end of the fucking prologue, which really wasn’t even a prologue but more of a rambling exposition that ended in her gothing out on the train to Hogwarts.  To summarize what happened last time, all I really need to do is say she’s a part-Veela, “Pureblood Slytherin” luggage rack secret daughter of Snape and a Ravenclaw, the latter of which won’t tell anyone that she’s the girl’s mother, pretending instead to be the girl’s aunt.  Luggage Rack is also a first year who will be going right into the second year classes because she can do spells without a wand and without speaking, even though she’s only eleven.

Part of me really, really wishes I could write this all off as the work of a troll, but considering the author introduces herself as “Dymond (pronounced Diamond just spelled differently)” in her profile, I think this girl is actually under the impression that her Sue is quality writing.

Hello, lovelies!  Welcome to another sunny/rainy/windy/weathery Monday!  I know, I know… another Harry Potter fic?  I can’t help it – when I need a badfic, that’s one of the best places to find one, and I haven’t riffed a Harry Potter fic in a while.  This week we’re going to start in on a fic called “A Daughter.”  As usual, the summary is what caught my eye so let’s just start with that and dive right in.

::Addicted Reader wanders absent-mindedly into the Riffing Room::

::looks around::

Oh, there are Patrons here!  I guess I should do a riff.  Hold on, let me go find something.

::starts rummaging through ff.net::

Well, last time we were in the Harry Potter crossover section, specifically the bottom of the list where the canons with exactly one crossover story are listed.  Let’s keep looking there.

::scrolls for a while::

Oh, Great Gatsby!  That must be that odd little underwear fic from a while ago.

::clicks link::

Huh, it’s something else.

::spends a while clicking links and mumbling something about dashes and underscores::

Ok, so there are two listings for “Great Gatsby” under HP crossover.  There are four fics, including the underwear one, under one listing and just this one under the other.  The fic is short and the summary presents a premise worth looking at, so here goes:

Short conversation between Jay Gatsby and Severus Snape; because women are fickle or dead. (Gatsby didn’t die.)

1271: Christmas Vigil – Oneshot

Hello, dear Patrons!

SC came up with the idea for having a week of holiday-themed oneshots, and since my fic just ended I thought it would be a great idea. I don’t personally celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday, but it is a good time to get together with family, so I tried to find a fic that fit in with my secular version of the holiday. I did attempt to find a Yule-themed fic, but almost all of them centered on the Yule Ball in Harry Potter so I’m here with a short oneshot from the Harry Potter universe that I found while browsing. (I did find a Yule fic, but I’m saving that for next week.)

If you’ve never heard of Harry Potter – welcome to the Internet! Thank you for choosing the Library as your first destination. Don’t forget to tip your ninja, and never give the tyrannosaur dairy products.

A/N: Something I wrote for the adventdrabbles community on IJ. :)

I think I can figure out what “adventdrabbles” would be, probably a series of Christmas-themed oneshots, but I’m also positive that should be LJ for LiveJournal.

That’s a good sign.
