Percy/Oliver recs, Percy community pimping

OMG, floweringjudas managed to combine two of my favorite fanfic elements. The result is not at all like combining chocolate and cheese, but rather, awesome in a totally beyond-additive way. Said elements are Percy/Oliver (yeah, surprising, I know, but wait for it!) and femmeslash. Yes. Percy/Oliver femmeslash. You all need to read A Learning Opportunity/The One Where Percy and Oliver Are Girls, seriously... even if you thought you didn't like Percy/Oliver, or if you thought you didn't like femmeslash, or if you don't like either (which does rather beg the question of why you're in my journal, but still, you will love this story anyway). Oh my god. Even as girls, Percy and Oliver are wonderfully in character, especially Oliver's POV makes me giddy with its awesomeness. It's hot and well-written, and also as hilarious as something with the premise should be, and now all I want to do is draw fanart of girl!Percy and girl!Oliver and not finish grading papers.

Plus, it's generally been a great time to be a Percy fan (and a crummy time to be finishing up grad school):

  • There's a new community, frecksandspecs, which is a Percy-centric fic-and-art community which I am thrilled to have been invited to.

  • Also open are signups for the percy_ficathon third wave, and since the deadline isn't until August, you have no reason not to sign up. Just imagine, you could be asked to write my cracktastic prompt requesting Percy to be set in a Lifetime Original Movie...or the several dozen much more inspired prompts which almost make me want to create sockpuppets to enter multiple times. I can hardly contain my excitement! Also, it looks like Percy/Oliver is showing up a lot in requests, which should either make you want to sign up to add some diversity or should make you want to sign up to get some of these fabulous prompts.


Plus, hp_springsmut has been a veritable font of Percy/Oliver! All of it worth checking out, but, specifically I wanted to point out WAGs to Riches, by nqdonne which really needs more attention than it's gotten. Nonmagical AU, NC-17. Just go read it - it's profoundly funny and the smut is sexy, with a really fabulously oblivious Percy, a wonderful supporting cast of Charlie, and a sweet, crushing Oliver that's totally written just the way the ship makes most sense to me. Also features amazingly random post-shag dialog, very realistic!

OK, back to work now. But you should go read the above stories, which is really what I'd like to do!

I totally fail to meet the requirements of the community, namely, that you have to have written 2 H/D-centric stories. :)

I'm working on fixing that -- I'm signed up for hd_hols, though I am having a hard time figuring out my Harry... It's not really by accident that Harry makes cameos in my fic if he shows up at all, and that's because I don't think I can write him at all. I love reading H/D, but I am totally awful at writing the pairing!

well, i just had to mention it!

i tend to write from harry's pov. he's very familiar to me. but see, if i had to write percy, i'd be completely stumped. i would have no idea what to say!

I have so much admiration for people who can write Harry!

Sadly, I think Draco is probably much more familiar ground in terms of my personality... that might be what it takes to overcome my block!

yeah, if you write from draco's pov, harry could be this total mystery for him [provided that fits the plot/prompt] and then you could get to know harry as draco does :).

Oh, and I'll definitely be reading! I'm so curious about the whole idea of remixing!

BTW, did you ever work out how artists can remix? I'd sign up as an artist, but I don't see how that's different from just drawing art from someone's story!

last year was very cool. lots of great fic came out of it :).

i didn't really come up with a solution, but i had another artist ask me if they could sign up, and if there was more than one artist, i could assign them to each other...

the only lengthy h/d fic i've written had mostly mentions of harry and... well. maybe a few encounters, in the second half. hahahahah. :| BUT AM TRYING TO REMEDY WITH HD HOLS. I DON'T KNOW WHY. IT ISN'T WORKING. *woe*

You know, it really is a good time to be a Percy fan. I'd never liked or appreciated him much at all, but in the last few months I've read some really amazing Percy!fic, and I have to say he's growing on me!

Indeed! I think part of what makes Percyfic so interesting is that there's so much left open by canon, at least for now, so writers have a huge amount of flexibility! I'm hoping DH doesn't rain on our parade. :)
