My stories, my lip, and hopefully some advice.

Part of a review of mine:

Usually slash fics don't have that much humour in them...

Oh really. I don’t know whether to be amused or annoyed. Bah.

Three of my stories are up at last at fictionalley. I would also venture posting at Inkstained Fingers, but I have bad luck posting there for some reason in the past. My stories come out all jumbly and I do not like bothering the webmistress(es) for such things.

The Outing—Harry/Draco. Lonely, irritated, and (most importantly) itching, Draco finds himself victim to Harry Potter's regard during a most unpleasant camping trip. [There have been a couple odd things tweaked in it, but nothing, I suppose, to smack anyone over the head for.]

Garments and Critters—Harry/Snape. Severus is tortured by his husband, Harry Potter, and their son on his and Harry's anniversary with gift exchange and puppies. [Was not added to the New Fics section for reasons I am not aware. But bah anyway.]

Outward Beauty—Harry/Draco. Harry contemplates the balance of his and Draco's relationship. [Formatting weirdness at the end, which was entirely my fault. Didn’t notice until after I submitted.]

How would you feel about reading an entire passage in italics, dear friends? Is it bothersome in your experience?

There are going to be a few looks into the past in a story of mine and I am having trouble deciding how to go about it. Is it common to start out in past perfect tense, ease into past tense, and then ease back into past perfect? Would using past perfect continuously not be annoying for both the writer and the reader?

And I refuse to do this:

******FLASHBACK******

******END FLASHBACK******

Irritating as pie if you ask me. Any opinions on the matter would be appreciated. :)

Note to self: Remember to reply to comments directly after you read them, otherwise you will forget what you had to say and end up not replying at all. >:(

My lip is part swollen. No more nibbling. Yow.

EDIT: Is there a proper definition to the term 'drabble'? I would certainly not be able to define it if some person said, "Yo, kiddo, what's that mean, drabble?"
