I wrote this for [livejournal.com profile] hp_het_taboo:

Two Can Keep a Secret (NC-17, Fred/Ginny, canon-compliant Harry/Ginny) [AO3]
Ten years after Fred's death, Ginny looks back on the secret they shared.

I want to emphasize here that that this is a story about abuse, and not a fun incest romp. Romps are good too (I've certainly written my share), I just don't want anybody to skim the headers and think this is one.

I can't imagine it will come as a big surprise to anyone who read the fic that I'm a sexual abuse survivor. Over the past couple of years I've done some pretty intensive recovery work, and it's nice to be able to say that I no longer meet the diagnostic criteria for PTSD. (Hurray!)

When you have something like this in your life I don't think there's ever a time when it's "all better", but I am really happy with the level of closure and acceptance I've gotten to. It feels very freeing to be able to draw from my experiences for the purposes of writing a (hopefully) effective piece of fiction, and to be on a completely even keel about it.

So when you have the option to write freely about the topic and let it have the complexity that it actually has because there's nothing stopping you anymore, then you ask yourself, what do I want the story to be? What do I want people to feel? [personal profile] hannelore was extremely helpful in bringing that into focus, and I ended up feeling good about the direction I took it.

It'll never be something everyone wants to read, and that's fine. I have to write the stuff that's me, and this is one of those things.


Anyway, this is shaping up to be a busy end to 2014. I've got a [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant fic to write for October and [livejournal.com profile] hp_halloween due on the same day, Kinky Kristmas due in November, [livejournal.com profile] severus_fest in December... so, yeah, probably not signing up for Yuletide this year. Treating is more fun anyway, IMO!
