Thank you to everyone who messaged me offering to read my fanfic! I found two beta readers soon after I posted that request. Look for the finished one-shot, which I’m calling “Golden Hour,” on AO3 sometime next week…when I make an AO3 account :’D
I’m writing fanfiction for one of my best friends, and I need to finish it by midnight or earlier tonight. The fandom’s Harry Potter, the pairing is Remus x Sirius, and it’s a very fluffy one-shot with a side of smut. As of writing this, I’m about 50-60% of the way done with the fic.
I would really appreciate if someone could proofread it and give me some advice on smut because, having never been a gay teenage wizard, I’m not sure how to portray that in a realistic way. (If you have a favorite resource for sex scenes, feel free to pass that along!)
I’m willing to provide monetary or artistic compensation, if you’re interested.
I discovered earlier this week that if you stick Haim’s “Days Are Gone,” Tegan and Sara’s “Heartthrob,” and Ra Ra Riot’s “Beta Love” entire albums on a playlist and hit shuffle, you get a really cute, upbeat mix of electro pop. I also added Toro Y Moi, Discovery, Chvrches, Ladyhawke, and Passion Pit to make a lazy multi-album playlist. Any other artists I should add?
UPDATE: Added Neon Indian, Vampire Weekend, MEN, Penguin Prison, and Pictureplane (ps it’s really hard to search for MEN when you can’t remember their album name)
