Title: the start is the hardest part
Pairing: Zacharias/Pansy
Rating: PG-13 (for language)
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."

( the start is the hardest part )
slumber: (colbert #1 - curses!)
I'm very staunchly a Harry Potter writer, or so I thought until lately, when more and more crossover-y things have been bleeding into my writing. It's difficult to take crossovers seriously, though, so I have decided not to. Thus, cracky crossover fics. :|

Anyway, just posting these here for posterity's sake.

Title: The Attack of the Venusian Cupidae
Summary: In which Mrs Zabini's multiple husbands are explained, and Blaise Zabini copes with being a wizarding timelord.
Characters/Pairings: Blaise Zabini, Mr and Mrs Zabini
Genre: Crack, Doctor Who Crossover
Rating/Warnings: PG-13
Word Count: 1778
Notes: From this post, mixed in with the [livejournal.com profile] hh_sugarquill prompt Cupid. So. This happened.

Blaise was five years old the first time his father died. )




Title: Martin Crieff, Ravenclaw
Summary: See title. :| Written for Isa.
Characters/Pairings: Martin Crieff
Genre: Crossover with Cabin Pressure, a radio play that's got Benedict Cumberbatch voicing the character of one Martin Crieff, pilot.
Rating/Warnings: none
Word Count: 2044

And Martin had gotten red, his cheeks burning bright and the nerves that often came to plague him in high-stress situations returning to fluster him so that he could barely get a word in edge-wise whilst Douglas then went on, in brilliant Holmesian deduction style, to all but nail Martin in his lies. )




Title: Iris Makes Love to a Kiwi
Summary: ....or: shenanigans that happen when Iris and Sas move into a London flat.
Characters/Pairings: Iris, Sas, surprise guests from HP! and other fandoms! Sort of!
Genre: Crack
Beta: I would never subject anyone to this
Rating/Warnings: I BLAME IRIS, SAS, AND ISA.
Word Count: 1575

'Character', as far as Iris was concerned, was an English word that meant, among other things: appearance, attribute, aspect, caliber, trait, type, ethos, personality. It did not, as far as she knew, mean 'a look of utter mess and dirt that must be cleaned up at once.' )

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.

Long Overdue )
slumber: (why do i adore you)
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: Five Stories Astoria Greengrass Did Not Write
Pairing: Zacharias/Astoria
Prompt: I resent your misguided understanding of things you don't understand.
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~1400
Summary: Zacharias Smith works in the News department of The Daily Prophet. Astoria Greengrass is in Features. Zacharias has a hard time figuring out what that means.
Author's Notes: Originally posted here. Cross-posting to LJ and DW (I think I'm retiring [profile] creativeslumber).

Title: Unsettled
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Theodore/Susan, Theodore/Daphne, a dash of Oliver/Katie
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~3100
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.

The Nott Manor had never been one to inspire feelings of cheer and fuzziness. )

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.

This is the story of how I married your mother. )

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.

Title: The First Christmas
Pairing: Percy/Hermione
Rating: G
Word Count: 212
Summary: Snow covered the remnants of the night's battle.
Additional Notes: Pinch-hit for [livejournal.com profile] hp_kris_kringle.

They barely celebrated Christmas in the last few years, not when green meant the Dark Mark hanging high over recently attacked houses and villages or the third Unforgiveable hitting an innocent, not when red meant spilled blood of men and women who stood to fight the Dark Lord's army and lost.

Last night had been the last battle, where Harry had faced Lord Voldemort, and the Aurors and the Order had finally banded together against the Death Eaters, and the night was nearly a deadly parody of Christmas-lit towns, the sky illuminated in the green and red of curses.

Morning came, and all was quiet.

"Percy?" Hermione called out tentatively, stumbling over bodies and shaking as she drew her coat tighter around her body.

"Right here," a voice replied from behind her, hoarse and weak from casting one curse too many. She turned at once, running toward Percy, who clung tight to her.

"I thought--I didn't see--I was worried--" she stammered helplessly, fingers curled against his rumpled clothes and voice nearly breaking.

"It's alright, I'm here," he murmured, stroking her back soothingly just as the first snowflakes fell from the sky. "We're safe."

Snow covered the remnants of the night's battle, and it was the first Christmas in a long time that stayed as purely white as the season.

Title: Festive
Pairing: Ron/Hermione
Rating: G
Word Count: 128
Summary: Hermione happens to like the Weasley jumpers.
Additional Notes: Pinch-hit for [livejournal.com profile] hp_kris_kringle.


As was customary in the Weasley household, that year each child received their own knitted jumper from Mrs Weasley. As was customary, she made sure each jumper went to its intended recipient by the large, obnoxious letter embroidered on the front. And as was customary, she picked an especially horrendous colour for Ron.

"Puke green," he announced with resignation, shrugging it on because of course, as was customary, Mrs Weasley wanted pictures.

"It's called olive green, Ron," Hermione told him.

"Puked out olive green."

"Ron."

"What?"

"I like the colour on you," Hermione said, cheeks turning a shade of red that had been customarily associated with the Weasleys.

"You think so?" Ron asked, perking up slightly.

Hermione's lips curled up, leaning in a little, her own bright red Weasley jumper brushing against Ron's. "It's very.. festive," she murmured, just close enough to feel Ron grin against her lips.

Title: Under the Mistletoe
Pairing: Tom/Bellatrix
Rating: G
Word Count: 108
Summary: Be careful who you find yourself under the mistletoe with.
Additional Notes: Pinch-hit for [livejournal.com profile] hp_kris_kringle.

When her sisters giggled over who they’d kissed under the mistletoe, Bellatrix kept quiet, choosing vicious red dress robes and a delicate necklace, for she was to meet Rodolphus Lestrange at that night’s party.

“Hurry up, children,” she said. “And I’d be careful who I find myself with under it.”

But she hadn’t been careful. Before the Lestranges arrived, she looked up to where the mistletoe was and saw it directly above her.

“Fascinating, isn’t it?” a voice murmured from behind her. She turned to a handsome man with a charming grin. “I don’t think we’ve met. I’m Tom Riddle.”
