Travelers by night by 20thcenturyvole
"Very quickly, Jonathan weighed the odds. On one hand, potential death, whether by armed bandits, a mummy’s curse, or people who looked like bandits and who were very angry about someone unleashing a mummy’s curse. On the other hand, potential riches, home ground, and topics of conversation other than what happened at school fifteen years ago and who got it in the neck where."

everything about this was perfect.

Porn When I Want - Caro (thestarsexist)
"They pop in the first tape; after about five minutes of flesh toned festivities, while sitting next to his best friend, Ryan starts to think that this is a bad move on his part. Seth's got this expression on his face, somewhere between surprise and just awe, and every time something happens on screen, he starts a little, and sidles in closer to Ryan.

"You have seen porn before?" Ryan asks, trying to distract himself from the fact that they're sitting much too close together for two straight guys watching porn.

Seth turns his face and Ryan starts reevaluating the 'straight' part. When Seth speaks, his words brush against Ryan's skin and Ryan feels himself shiver.

"Dude. Sixteen year old boy. Internet. What else do you think I do?""

Love this, and it’s why you can only iterate and user test your way to better products - but not transformative products that leap over muscle memory / expectations.

The brightest sun by witlessmaester
"Elia Martell expected to die in King's Landing, but through some force found herself in the home of a war-weary Harry Potter. She just wants to return to Westeros; wants to see her family, wants the sandy dunes of Dorne and the peace of the Water Gardens. Aegon and Rhaenys are all she has, and for their sake she might have to reclaim a throne that nearly cost them everything.

Harry Potter had died in his war and returned to a Wizarding World hell-bent on remaining in the throes of war-time politics. He was tired of Magical Britain, tired of fighting a useless war, but he has a son to care for and no force on earth would stop him from doing so.

Raising three kids is hard, raising two of them to eventually rule a kingdom even harder, especially when you’re trying to find a way to Westeros."

so good, so so good. nice balance between the rising tension, the politics in both worlds, the fluffiness of found family, and the joys of magic

The tale of the three brothers by witlessmaester
"James and Lily Potter died, leaving behind three sons. Edward Charlus, Henry James, and Alexander Fleamont; the Heir, the Spare, and the Boy-Who-Lived.

Or, alternatively: The Potter sons take on a world determined to come in between them."

this is really intriguing, i like how it neatly ducks a lot of the usual Potter sibling stereotypes.

AIR 022 / Aleksi Perälä by AIR | Free Listening on SoundCloud
AIR 022 / Aleksi Perälä by AIR Recorded in Lahti, Finland, episode 22 welcomes Finnish producer and musician Aleksi Perala for a talk about Colundi, a microtonal tuning system introduced to him several years ago, and in which the different frequencies relate to different psychologies and beliefs. Although Colundi is still for the most part a mystery even to its staunchest believers, its frequences are said to encourage healing, relaxation, and peacefulness. Aleksi's own work with Colundi has resulted in more than 17 full length releases, and he shows no signs of slowing down... +++ @aleksiperala Music: Aleksi Perälä - "UK74R1513080" (2017) Audio treatment by Airlock Audio & Mastering

The devil you know by silchasruin
"All Harry Potter ever wanted was to finally be accepted as someone other than an incurably criminal boy. A fresh start in Slytherin - which, admittedly, does seem to have a worrying proportion of goons - seems to be just what he needs to make some lifelong friendships. And if that life happens to be an immortal one, all the better.

It's too bad that the high-pitched voice in his head has other ideas."

so incredibly delightful, not at all what i expected. easily straddles the line between serious, absurd and hilarious in a very unique way. some of the scenes were so funny i'd find myself laughing hours later. there's also no bashing.

Fokus Set 003: Taylor Bratches by FokusGlobal | Fokus Global | Free Listening on SoundCloud
Fokus Set 003: Taylor Bratches by FokusGlobal @TaylorBratches (formerly Talien) seeks to explore and transmit an emotional experience through sound. A lifelong poet and dancer, her relationship to rhythm is intimate and ever-evolving. In her sets, she aims to fuse genres, blending breakbeat, jungle, acid, electro, IDM and leftfield techno with more polyrhythmic and arhythmic varieties of dance music. Her approach to dancing and DJing is a meditative one, and she aims to move people physically and spiritually, creating an experience for the mover that is both embodied and transcendent, terrestrial and extraterrestrial. She is affiliated with the Chicago-based collective @walkingandfalling - a mentorship program created by @Smartbar chicago residents for female-identifying and nonbinary DJs. She currently curates their mix series and after a recent move to New York City is now a writer for @ResidentAdvisor. Taylor told us: "Music is home and focus is choosing your truth and prioritizing yourself." And her fullest expression of love is dancing on mushrooms at a forest rave. Yeah. We felt that.

Harry Potter and the awakening power by darkpheonix31
"Harry struggles to take up the role that he needs to play in the escalating war. Will the Order continue to see him as a child they need to protect or the leader that they need him to be? When circumstances force Harry to spend part of the summer with his two least favorite people, it sets off a spiral of events and nothing is the same."

the summary is a bit bland but ignore it bc this is one of the best things i've ever read. creative and well thought out plot, excellent character development, great balance between action and introspection and humor. the first chapter is def the weakest but it picks up immediately after and never stops, keeping the tension high and building to a fantastic climax. this fic avoids a lot of common tropes and also turns some of them on their head in a very believable and enjoyable manner. i particularly like their Harry; he is nuanced and interesting and compassionate, he's canon!Harry coming into his own and leading a war, he's growing up and learning and making mistakes and committed to doing the right thing, and it's glorious. i also appreciated the lack of bashing.
This is a 6th year AU and eventually there will be a sequel once the author finishes their current WIP. This is primarily gen and not ship focused at all

Dekmantel Podcast 270 - Eris Drew by dekmantel | Free Listening on SoundCloud
Dekmantel Podcast 270 - Eris Drew by dekmantel Eris Drew is one of those artists who seemed to blow up over night, but who had actually been hard at work for decades. A long-time residency at Chicago's Smart Bar brought her to international attention, and her own Motherbeat parties at various places around Europe furthered that reputation. It is there that she manages to cook up pure, unadulterated dance floor love and euphoria with hi-energy selections and a unifying sense of oneness that is put together with her own so called “orchestration” mixing techniques. An inquisitive musician and innovative recording artist, she has also just put out her debut solo EP on Interdimensional Transmissions and runs T4T LUV NRG with partner Octo Octa. This week's mix is all of the above and more: a throbbing, impulsive and full bodied experience that serves up the most bumping house grooves but run through with the warm ambient glow of a post-rave comedown. The music feels at classic but also thoroughly contemporary: it will make you pump your fist in sheer joy, but also sends warm waves of euphoria through your body. This is the sound of the Motherbeat. Eris on her mix: "In a recent interview for DJ Mag I talk about my connection to the song “Secrets of Mediation” by Dutch producers Alex Dijksterhuis (Jamez) & Gaston Steenkist (Dobre). At Chicago raves in 1994 and 1995, this track revealed to me that modern dance music contains archaic ritual elements such as trance-inducing resonances, penetrating sacred drums, and language transformed into glossolalia. My DJ mix for Dekmantel is inspired by my formative dance experiences and by the intense extended sets I play at psychedelic raves such as Motherbeat and No Way Back. The mix includes bass music, progressive, breaks, house, techno, and minimal, all of which I collage, drop and scratch to put us into a tunneling trance." Full tracklist here:
