snickfic: pink seahorse!girl nuzzling pregnant green seahorse!boy (mpreg)
Oh hey! Only six weeks after first talking about this, I'm finally starting this meme! I decided that seven days was much too restrictive if I was going to talk about, like, ALL FIC, so instead I have narrowed it down by theme, and I'll probably repeat the meme periodically as I feel like it. For now the theme is mpreg, because as you know, Bob, it is the favorite of all my favorites.

Something Old:
Hexed, by [archiveofourown.org profile] Randominity - Harry Potter, Harry/Draco
In which Harry flubs a spell and accidentally knocks up Draco, and there are all sorts of unexpected consequences.

You have to understand, back when I was a wide-eyed new fan (ie, six years ago), there was not nearly as much mpreg as there is now. Since then there's been some kind of fannish revolution re: certain tropes, which I find fascinating, although that's neither here nor there. So when I figured out mpreg was a thing that existed in fandom and I went hunting for it, Harry Potter fandom was a treasure trove - it was a big enough fandom that even back then there was tons of mpreg for a variety of ships, and on top of that there was painless-j and her epic HP mpreg recs list. As a result, I read a ton of HP fic back then, despite having only read one of the books and part of another one.

Out of them all, this was and remains one of my favorites. It's got the mpreg-is-weird angle and also the unlikely-friendship thing that I adore, as well as a lot of the kinds of moments that I read mpreg for, like when Draco awkwardly explains to Harry why he's decided to keep the baby, despite finally being given an out. It has some awkward first-time (and second-time) sex, too, which I also appreciate.

It does have some weirdness, such as the fact that Harry's spell has taken away Draco's boy bits and given him girl bits, which a) is implied rather than ever outright stated, so that I didn't even pick up on it in my first couple of reads, and b) leads to this awkward post-partum conversation where Draco inquires whether Harry will even be sexually interested in him anymore, now that he has his dick back. (Spoiler: Harry is.)

Still, I have a lot of nostalgic fondness for this fic, which is what the "something old" category is all about. So. :)

And now, to complement the self-reccing meme, a meme for reccing things made by other people! As always, full customizable.

Day 1: something old
Day 2: something new
Day 3: something for your fav character/pairing
Day 4: something for a character you don't like / pairing you don't ship
Day 5: something that's underappreciated by the universe
Day 6: something that's a gateway drug
Day 7: something you reread/rewatch/look at again

I'll start tomorrow, I think.
