Title: Countdown to the End of the World
Characters: Theodore Nott, Draco Malfoy, Mrs Zabini, Blaise Zabini
Rating: G
Word Count: 1266
Warning(s): Allusions to zombies?
Summary: "How do we get there?" Draco asks the afternoon he nearly gets bitten on a food run. He swears up a storm and throws a hissy fit but Theodore makes him wait the requisite five hours anyway. Rules are rules, Theodore reminds him, earning only a stream of colorful curses from Draco. He doesn't stop glaring at him for at least an hour after he is finally allowed back in.
Author's Note: Written (and currently hosted at) [livejournal.com profile] hp_zombiefest. This fic takes place in the same universe as the fics I wrote last time, Dead Men Walking and The Quibbler's Guide to the Rising, though you don't need to read either to follow this one.

Title: we are not shining stars
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Susan Bones, Ernie Macmillan, Zacharias Smith, Hannah Abbott, Megan Jones, Justin Finch-Fletchley
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2344
Summary: This was not how their last year at Hogwarts was supposed to go.
Additional Notes: Title taken from fun.'s Carry On, which could be a Hufflepuff anthem. Thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] ccharlotte for letting me email her bits and pieces of this before this was done, [livejournal.com profile] intrepidy for the beta, and Hufflepuffs for generally being brilliant. Originally written for [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_houses and posted here.

( It is only the first week of the new term and Susan thinks they must have been right, must have known what was going to happen. Dumbledore is dead and Hogwarts, she hears, is surrounded by Death Eaters and Dementors. )




Title: Lady Luck
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Cormac McLaggen, Katie Bell, various others
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2304
Summary: His heart's in the right place. It's just his execution that leaves a lot to be desired.
Additional Notes: Do you ever get those days when you sit down to write one story and something else pops out? Yeah, that was this. Huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ccharlotte, always, and [livejournal.com profile] thegrownupthing for the beta. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] iulia_linnea for giving me an outlet to explore my Cormac feels and, of course, for organizing one of my favorite fests ever. Originally written for [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_houses and posted here.

( Cormac is five the first time a girl clocks him in the head. )

Word Count: ~14,000
Summary: "In case you were wondering," she says once they're both settled at the kitchen table, hands wrapped around warm mugs of tea, "I haven't got any designs on your family name."

"Didn't think you did, but glad to hear it all the same."

"I'd rather be destitute and dishonorable than birth potential Hufflepuffs."

Ron thought he was doing Harry a favor. )

Derp. I didn't miss the [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus reveals but I kind of failed on doing anything after it. Like posting, or thanking the people who reviewed. Ooooops, so off to do that now. ANYWAY. This was my submission. I'd intended there to be more Kingsley/Narcissa and less Draco/Astoria, but that didn't quite work according to plan.

Title: Long Overdue
Pairing: Draco/Astoria, Kingsley/Narcissa
Summary: In which Draco is in denial about many things.
Rating: NC-17
Length: 3555
Warnings: none
Author's notes: [livejournal.com profile] torino10154, I hope you enjoy this! I certainly had fun writing it. :) Much thanks to my beta, [livejournal.com profile] ccharlotte, without whom I would not have felt confident letting this see the light of day. Any errors are due to my post-beta meddling. Written for [livejournal.com profile] smutty_claus and originally posted here.

Title: Dead Men Walking
Characters: Harry, Luna, Theodore, Zacharias
Rating: PG-13 for violence
Word Count: 4521
Summary: Of all the things that she believes in, Luna Lovegood wants this on record: she is very sorry it's the zombies that turn out to be real.
Additional Notes: SO. MUCH. FUN. Written for [livejournal.com profile] hp_zombiefest and originally posted here. Thanks to C & S for their feedback, and A for the eagle-eyed beta job. ♥ Hope you enjoy reading!

It is in Harry Potter's humble opinion that he’s spent an inordinate amount of his life waking up in hospitals. )

Title: The Seven Grievances of Terry Boot
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Terry/various (slash and het)
Beta Reader(s): [livejournal.com profile] sinarie
Word Count: 6717
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None..
Note: This is for all the Ravenclaws I've loved before. Thanks to S for inspiring the version of Justin FF that shows up here, and L for sharing my love for Terry Boot (and helping prod this story into form). JKR had listed Terry down as a Muggleborn in her notes, and while she had a lot of notes that didn't make the "final cut", I think it's interesting to try and make everything she said fit anyway. Written for [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_houses, originally posted here. This is also something of a backstory that I started writing in 2009 for Salvation by Slytherin, albeit this is more focused on Terry than the other three boys.
Summary: Before he got on the train his mother had pulled him into a hug and told him she knew he'd always been special, and she was sure he'd do very well in all his classes regardless of the subject, and his father laughed and wondered how many versions of Abra Cadabra Terry would have to memorise. When he wrote a few weeks later to explain there was actually a fair amount of Latin to remember, his father's reply included a hint of going on to be a doctor.

Hogwarts turned out to be real after all, though quite honestly, not nearly as good as it sounded on paper—sorry, parchment. )

Title: House of Heretics (4/4)
Pairing: Draco/Astoria, mentions of Cormac/Astoria, Viktor/Pansy, also hints at various Slytherin ships
Word Count: <38,000, 8378 for this section
Rating/Warnings: R, mentions of infidelity and crime
Betas: [livejournal.com profile] acidpop25 kept an eye out for flow and phrasing, and [livejournal.com profile] grrarrg0908 battled my italics valiantly and came out triumphant. Any mistakes are due to my post-beta meddling.
Summary: Seven years have passed since Voldemort's defeat and Draco Malfoy is making do with the lot he's been given--distrusted by the most of the ministry, shunned by the House that he betrayed. When a ministry official goes missing, Draco is given the chance to help restore the Malfoys' place in society. But is Astoria standing in his way or is she just what he needs to be exonerated?
Author's notes: For Slytherins, the loves of my life. Narcissa probably wouldn't be here if not for Helen McCrory's performance in Deathly Hallows. The characters are JKR's, but Foxglove Bakery is Caroline's. Hope you enjoy reading! Written for [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang. On the HBB site here and AO3 here.

Title: Scenes from the Hufflepuff Common Room
Character(s): Pomona Sprout, various others
Beta Reader(s): [livejournal.com profile] jaggarte
Word Count: 2197
Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None..
Note: I wanted to write a story about the students, but Pomona became the best way to tell it. In the end though, I think she'd say this is still about the students. Written as a pinch-hit piece for [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_houses and originally posted here. This was kind of hard to write--we know so little about the Hufflepuffs in general!
Summary: One day Pomona Sprout put up a bulletin board. Then her students made it their own.

'But Voldemort is far away, and the danger facing Hogwarts lives inside the castle walls.' )

Rating: PG-13

Summary: The war is over, but it doesn't feel like it's truly ended.
Additional Notes: Written for the community at [livejournal.com profile] hp_spring_fling. Many, many thanks to my beta, Ashvarden, who helped shape and prod this into readable form. The request I had asked for a tone more somber than I was used to writing, and this had been an interesting exercise in restraint versus... whatever its opposite was. Erm. So yeah.

Title: How I Married Your Mother
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Draco/Astoria, some Theodore/Daphne, Blaise/Pansy, Roger/Astoria
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~7500
Summary: When Daphne and Theodore get engaged, making sure Astoria follows through with maid-of-honor duties becomes the best man's responsibility. But aiding and abetting was hardly what Draco signed up for.
Additional Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] hp_canon_fest for the prompt "Asteria is a criminal mastermind, Draco is her reluctant sidekick. The crime in question could be the heist of the century or something as simple as stealing an apple. Means, motivation, success up to the author." Original posting can be found here, although in this version I switched the spelling back to Astoria. My betas [livejournal.com profile] carlyinrome and [livejournal.com profile] todaythesamesky did rock star stuff for me! Any further mistakes are mine post-beta. Also, the shameless allusion to a popular prime time TV show sort of extends past the title.

Additional Notes: Way belated post, but I figured it better be in here for archiving purposes. I wrote this last year for [livejournal.com profile] artemis_sparks for [livejournal.com profile] hp_yule_balls fest. Never written this pairing before, I don't think. I kinda liked how it turned out.

Fandom: Harry Potter

Summary: Katie's job demands a lot from her, but when it comes to Roger Davies, it can sometimes mean things that aren't even included in the fine print.
