Romione Quickie Fest Recap

Since I am co-hosting (much love to the hardworking @callieskye) @romionequickiefest and cannot compete, I thought I would make a master post of all my offerings in case anybody was late to this party.

Practical Application

“She had read books of course: textbooks on muggle and magical sexuality, as well as the “bodice rippers” that her mother had always insisted were just beach reading, but books only took you so far, you had to have practical application.”


“Ron decided that this was the best birthday anyone had ever had; however, in the years that followed, he was happy to be proven wrong.”

The Most Powerful Kind of Magic

“There were so many things still broken outside of that little room, but he knew one thing for sure: their love was the most powerful kind of magic and he would do whatever it took to keep it safe.”

Arms and the Man

“Hermione suddenly felt rather warm. She was mesmerized by the way his muscles rippled down from his rolled up sleeves to the slight indentation of his wrist, all the way to the curves of his gripped fingers. Warm wasn’t the word for it anymore, she was downright hot! Before she could help herself, a tiny whimper escaped her slightly parted lips.”

Brisk Brilliance

“With the practiced brisk brilliance obtained only by shag-desperate parents, Ron snogged his wife as he backed her toward the counter.”


“It was tricky business to shag, fully clothed, against a tree, while a multitude of high ranking Ministry officials hobnobbed close by, but Ron Weasley was never a man to back down from a challenge”


“The light from the fire was making patterns on his face. Oh, God! His face! It had been so long since she had been able to look at him! A fist of longing clutched her poor heart as she stared at the familiar lines of his jaw, covered in ginger stubble.  She had never seen him so unshaven, so manly, yet so vulnerable at the same time.”

Holding Back, Holding On

“His words thundered down on her, but she never flinched. She weathered the fury of his storm, absorbing his words carefully. He felt briefly ashamed of his reaction, yet he had no time for regret because she literally launched herself at him, savagely invading his mouth with her tongue.”


 Sarumi Fest 2017  Day 8  (July 14)

Misaki seems to find his cosplay pretty cool! On the other hand Saruhiko is bothered by the bandages that are there for no reason… I shall not list the similarities of these two ships because there are far too many! (lol)

(Yep It’s my crappy art! Deal with me! XD)

It’s my first Sarumi fest and I had so much fun!! A big thanks to all the mods who organised it!! Hope we get to do this again next year! ^^

Thanks everyone and I’m sorry if I missed some obvious ones!  🌹🌹🌹


Comunque non vi ricordate di essere donne solo oggi perché stasera andate a cena in uno di quei soliti posti in cui, vista la serata, ci saranno i soliti bei camerieri e lo spogliarellista di turno.
Ricordatevi di essere donne tutti i giorni perché non siete speciali solo oggi, ma sempre.
Quando venite sottopagate a lavoro, picchiate dai vostri mariti, sottovalutate in molti contesti, quando non vi danno la libera scelta di abortire o meno, quando la vostra dignità viene messa a terra, fate qualcosa per farvi valere per come siete realmente.
Perché le donne oggi vengono ricordate mica perché nel 1909 le femministe si erano andate ad ubriacare in un bar di quartiere, ma per ben altro.

Here it is! My last entry for sarumi fest day 8 ☺️💙❤️

Title: Something to Look Forward to

Rating: Explicit

Word count: 7.8k

Summary: Yata was used to being embarrassed when it came to doing stuff in the bedroom, but with a new suggestion from Fushimi, Yata was sure this was a night that wouldn’t compare. The worst part? He might not have hated the idea as much as he had originally suspected.
