Title: Subtle Science and Exact Art
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dicta_contrion
Pairing/Characters: Portrait!Snape/Lucius Malfoy, brief mention of Harry/Draco, Lucius/Narcissa
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 6k
Warnings/Content Notes: dirty talk, anal play, object insertion, wanking, D/S dynamics, infidelity (of the consensual, mutual, explicitly encouraged variety)
Author's Notes: This is a spin-off of Potter’s Parselprostate (and the Chamber of Secrets). Some context given there may make relationships, settings, and motivations a bit clearer clearer, particularly themention of Draco and Harry's relationship and the allusion to Lucius' seeming infidelity, which he is pursuing with Narcissa's explicit encouragement and as part of an ongoing mutual arrangement; as Potter's Parselprostate ends, she sends him off for a mood-improving dalliance with Snape while she pursues Professor Sinistra.However, this can be read as a stand-alone one-shot.
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] disapparater for fab beta work on more than one draft/occassion! ♥
As part of the [livejournal.com profile] hp_concrit_fest, this story benefited from the thoughtful comments, critiques, and encouragements of many of my fellow participants, to whom I am very grateful. I think it can be important to explore process and see how stories change through various drafts; towards that end, you can find the earlier draft of the story and the comments it received here. Concrit is a labor of love and is welcome and appreciated here, especially in the spirit of concrit's "at least one positive point along with the criticism" guideline (please do not comment on the concrit entry, as per the mods’ request). Of course, purely positive comments are welcome as well!
Summary: Death has come with many delights. No more afternoons spent dodging explosions. No more evenings marking the barely legible drivel that passes for coursework. No more bowing before madmen intent on destroying each other. If not for the display about to unfold before me, that might have been death’s greatest pleasure. But then, there is Lucius Malfoy’s arse.

Very excited to say that I'm signed up for the new HP Concrit Fest!

As the name suggests, the fest is designed for giving and getting feedback on the strengths and weakness of your writing. What the name alone doesn't tell you is how thoughtfully the fest has been designed. Entries will be closed to community members, so no one outside of the community will see your comments unless you choose to make them public at the end of the fest. Written submissions will be between 2k and 7k to keep the commenting commitment manageable (and to avert the temptation to turn everything into a 30k mini-epic *cough*me*cough*) and the deadline is almost a whole three months away. Participants agree to comment on half the entries and will give at least one point of positive and one point of constructive criticism and flaming is strictly forbidden, so feedback should really give a sense for both what could be improved and what's already strong. And, with more and more people joining in - they're up to 19 participants already - it looks like it will be a really well-rounded group.

The kicker for me was that I haven't seen and can't remember hearing about something like this before. That could be a product of relative newness, but whether or not that's the case it seems like a not-to-be-missed opportunity to work at getting better with a community of people who want to do the same and who share the underlying love of fandom and fanworks.

So! Check it out! And consider joining in. My (possibly ridiculously kinkysmuttywrong) entry is already underway and I very much want to share the excitement!
