(no subject)

I am suddenly realizing that, though I've come across few, I am falling in love with Pre-Slash. I simply love to walk that fine line between Gen and Sweet Lovin'. I suppose that that is what I consider the best part of Slash itself: the long road of restless eagerness that comes before the first kiss or first matress-romp --the teasing.

I've never been fond of climaxes. (Interpret that anyway you wish.)

The most thrilling part of anything is not knowing what will happen next, and once The Big, The Bang, and The Yes, Finally! comes along...what's next? A resolution? That's interesting, all right. Satisfying. But then it ends. No! What I value most during a situation is the lead into, lead up to, whatever it is called. Just like Christmas! Christmas Day itself comes and goes. How disappointing. Christmas Eve is undoubtedly the most exciting part of the holidays: A hearty dinner, longing glances at the tree, no wrapping paper to clean up.

So in stories, obviously it is more pleasing to me to be teased rather than to actually have my wishes served.

Bugger off, climactic kisses and gropings. Hello, Pre-Slash.

Well...just in small portions. I still like the lovin'.

With that said, I might now say that I enjoy you Bittersweet Potion. And I enjoy you A Scrap of Humanity and even though I know there is another story after you, I fear I will not be able to read it for I enjoy this ache of being so sweetly unsatisfied. So sweetly tortured!

Me? Masochist?

Hello, new friend. *waves*

I agree with you completely. I mean, I'm all for the smut and stuff, but to me, a story based on a relationship is just boring. I just don't read stories based on happy couples and their daily lives. In real life, it's nice, sure, but it's not exciting. Even if it is strap-on!Ginny ;) I tend to read more of the stories where Harry and Draco (or other couples) getting together is the resolution, not the main part of the story. Tension and blushing glances and so-close-to-slash moments are my favourite.

An example would be Olivia Lupin's Potions with Purpose. It is smut and has H/D sex, but half of it is the pre-slash, and god, what a good pre-slash it is. :D

Also, another good example would be Maya's Underwater Light. Mmm, tension and subtext ;)

Note to Self: Avoid the title Strap-on!Ginny while sipping your drink. Will result in a very moist computer screen.

Hello, in return, new friend.

I don't believe that I've read either of those stories, but I have heard of Underwater Light. Rather than taking your word of their excellence, I'll read them and thank you for mentioning them. Thank you!

Dude, if you have not read the strap-on!Ginny story, DO NOT. It does have a marginally okay ending, but the mere idea of Ginny wearing a strap-on fucking Harry is so incredibly disgusting I cannot bear to read any of it. In fact, when it was shown to me, I read until I saw the part where she puts the strap-on on and then I closed the window because I could not read it. Only after everyone was laughing about the ending did I refind it and look at the ending.

It so did not redeem it.

Read Potions with Purpose here and Underwater Light <a href="http://schnoogle.com/authorLinks/Maya/Underwater_Light/'>here</a>. If you're so inclined.

*pimps UL with you*

Did the last chapter make you sad? I cried :((

I'm friending you if it's alright. I could have written this entry myself! (well, if I could write that coherently but still... ;)
