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 [ profile] ccharlotte for letting me email her bits and pieces of this before this was done, [ profile] intrepidy for the beta, and Hufflepuffs for generally being brilliant. Originally written for [ 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 [ profile] ccharlotte, always, and [ profile] thegrownupthing for the beta. Thanks to [ 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 [ profile] hogwarts_houses and posted here.

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

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."

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 [ 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): [ 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 [ 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. )

PS. Don't forget to request for December Drabbles either on DW or LJ!

Title: Oliver's Broom
Betas: [ profile] perculious and [ profile] melusinahp

Author's Notes: Written for [ profile] serpentinelion's GlompFest as a glomp for [ profile] steamyaffair, who requested Broommaker & Quidditch Team Owner. Originally posted here. It's been a while since I wrote H/D as well.

Ginny had warned him the shop would have no name. )
slumber: (ruin)
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 [ 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. )
slumber: (fics)
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 [ 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 [ profile] carlyinrome and [ 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. )
slumber: (what if)
Title: Five Things That Katie Bell Did Not Sign Up For
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Roger/Katie
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2200~
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.
Additional Notes: Written for [ profile] purelush as a pinch-hit for the first [ profile] clever_claws fest. First posted here. Much thanks to [ profile] hockeysaurus for the beta.

The lights were far too bright, the music too loud, the space too crowded. )

Title: Do You Believe in Snorkacks?
Fandom: Harry Potter
Author-turned-pseudo-artist: [ profile] slumber
Pairing: Luna/Hermione
Rating: PG13
Medium: Colored markers
Summary: "You'll need to be very, very quiet, or else the crumple-horned snorkacks will take more than your shoes."
Additional Notes: Drawn for [ profile] hpsauce at [ profile] hp_april_fools over at IJ. Started out completely different (and much more detailed) in my head but lack of art materials, proper scanning tools, Photoshop skills, and actual artistic ability produced this instead. LOL. Whatever. There are skirts involved, and ties, too, so I am happy. Originally posted here.

Pairing: Roger/Various
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 710 words
Summary: Roger Davies and his various love interests. :|
Additional Notes: Part of the [ profile] fanfic100 challenge, for the prompt Heart, I suppose. (In retrospect, I should probably have signed up for Roger Davies instead of Ravenclaws.) Written for [ profile] ccharlotte.

The scrawny boy grew up, filled out, lost the stammer in his speech, charmed irreprehensibly, teased mercilessly, walked back into your world not like he had a right to be in it, but like he knew enough to turn it inside out.  )

Title: Crashing
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Justin/Terry
Rating: PG13

Summary: Justin had never been very good at remembering.
Additional Notes: For the [ profile] fanfic100 prompt Not enough and dedicated to [ profile] siobhanohare, for whom I began writing this as a Valentine's Day present way back in 2005. :| Slightly edited from the version I originally posted. There's a companion piece but I've given up hope on that for the night. :|

You hardly remember that bit, but he told you about it sometimes, enough so that it almost felt like your memory instead of his... )

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,991 more or less
Summary: [SPOILERISH] Highlight to read: Takes place years after the war. Blaise's mother is engaged to Theodore's father, and everyone gets busy with wedding preparations. More or less.
Additional Notes: Dedicated to [ profile] starflowers, from whom I stole Grayson, Kalan, and Theodore. *kisses* Lissa, I really don't know what else to add besides gratuitous shagging. :| Much love to [ profile] ccharlotte, who editted and lent me Isabella. :D I take full blame for the title. :|

The society pages should have warned him. )


Epilogue )
slumber: (piss it)
Title: Winter Season
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Adrian/Miles
Rating: PG 13 for language
Word Count: 365
Summary: Adrian doesn't like the cold.
Additional Notes: Again, written for [ profile] hp_kris_kringle. I've at least two more ficlets written for that comm, pretty soon I'll put up new stuff. Ish. I protest that no one is online, and I can't log into Y!M. Oh my GOD, WHERE is EVERYONE? *slumps* I protest that I lost my Photoshop, and no one seems to be able to lend me theirs. All I've been doing offline is listening to music (sustains me) and playing Solitaire (am in TEARS). You can also tell that the reason I posted fic was so I can rant. :|

PS. OMG I will DIE of boredom COME ONLINE and GMAIL ME.

Adrian despised the cold. He hated the draft of icy wind that made its way down the depths of the Slytherin dungeons at night, the harsh chill of the stone walls of their dormitory. He loathed the freezing air, the icy droplets of rain that seeped through the fabric of his Quidditch robes and through his skin. The cold went straight to his bone, piercing right through skin to freeze his soul.

"Fucking weather, fucking cold," he cursed, slamming the door to the Slytherin showers after their match against Ravenclaw. His sight had been heavily crippled by the heavy fall of rain, and he'd fumbled a few passes and threw the Quaffle towards Ravenclaw chasers instead. It hadn't been a good match, although they'd won by thirty points.

"Go ahead, Pucey. Blame the weather instead of your abysmal Quidditch skills."

Adrian looked up to see Miles Bletchley sneering at him from the shower stall, arms crossed as he leant back against the wall, a dark green towel wrapped around his slim waist. Adrian narrowed his eyes, saying nothing as he jerked off his protective caps and pulled off his robes.

"Like you fared any better. I can't believe you let those Quaffles into the goalposts."

"I can't believe you threw those Quaffles into our goalposts."

"Shut up, Bletchley," Adrian snarled, shoving the boy aside as he stepped into a shower stall, cursing as his feet touched mud on the floor. "Fucking barbarians - who didn't bloody take off their bloody boots?"

"You're really not in the mood today, are you?"

"You mean you can't tell?"

Miles took a step closer to Adrian - the taller boy noted with disdain that Bletchley had rubber slippers on - and cocked his head to the side. "I can't say I can. What is your problem?" he asked, shoving Adrian back against the wall.

"Shit!" Adrian hissed as the cold shower tiles burned through his bare back. "Piss off, Bletchley, and let a man shower in bloody peace."

"Why should I?" Miles taunted, suddenly so much closer than Adrian felt marginally comfortable with, and yet, also so much warmer.

"I don't know," Adrian mumbled, and he wasn't cold anymore.
slumber: (what if)
Title: Unspoken Agreements
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Fred/George, very very very slight Charlie/Hermione
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 200 words
Summary: Fred and George never talk about the one time their prank backfired on them.
Additional Notes: Written as a pinch-hitter for [ profile] hp_kris_kringle. Will post the other pinch-hit ficlets over the next few days.

Fred and George never talked about the one time their prank backfired on them for two reasons, only secondary of which is the sheer humiliation it brought upon their reputation as pranksters to have had a joke work against them in the first place.

They never talked about it at all, in fact, not even to agree that they would never tell anybody, or to decide which of the two reasons was the primary one, or what they were to do about that one incident. Instead, the day right after the unfortunate event occurred - Friday the week before Christmas - they went about their business as if Thursday afternoon hadn't happened at all.

Fred wondered if he'd dreamt it.

George wondered if his mind had played tricks on him.

They almost convinced themselves, but when the mistletoe they'd hung above a secret corner of the living room kept Charlie and Hermione in place until they both agreed to kiss each other, Fred caught the blush in George's cheeks and George saw Fred avert his eyes. They both knew then that Fred hadn't dreamt it, and that George's mind hadn't played tricks on him.

But they never talked about it.
slumber: (tragedy)
Title: Filling Spaces
Fandom: Queer as Folk
Spoilers: Season 2, eps 15-19 (only slightly, though)
Pairing: Ethan/Justin, only, not really
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 150 words
Summary: Tragedy's beautiful too.
Additional Notes: Supposed to explain why Ethan cheated, but I forgot about that but when I finished the drabble today. For [ profile] siobhanohare, and substitutes like Ethan. You've my love.

Justin smiles at him, lips curling up in his should-be-patented sunshine smile, and Ethan thinks it's love.

And it is, it should be, the sort of mad passionate love that artists feel and live and create, the sort that masterpieces are made of, because Justin follows him and kisses him and Ethan thinks it can't be anything else but love.

It is love, with enough fire to warm endless nights under the stars, enough fire to blaze endless nights under the earth, even when Justin shifts his gaze and tries hard to cry out Ethan's name when he knows, when they both know. Even then.

And Ethan thinks, with Justin snuggled up next to him, sated but not wholly, that there's something madly passionate and poetic about filling spaces too.

It's still love anyway, isn't it, Ethan wonders. Justin only breathes in reply, and Ethan thinks it has to be.
slumber: (Default)
Title: Undercurrents
Pairing: Blaise/Terry
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 1700 words
Warnings: Language, Possible Parenthesis Abuse
Summary: Terry's fifth year is terrible--he isn't prefect, there's some stupid defense club going around, and all Hogwarts Houses are a disgrace, among other things.
Additional Notes: Originally titled TerryFic, but later scrapped because Terry would spork me for being a dork. :| It's subtle slash and it alludes more than anything. Subject to editing. Concrit is welcome, thanks.
Edit: For [ profile] fanfic100, for the prompt And.

God, sometimes Ravenclaws were such UTTER snobs. )

Rating: PG-13
Additional Notes: Drawn for [ profile] release82, based on a request she made for some art exchange community. Um. I don't draw at all, and this is the first time I've tried colouring anything using Photoshop, so if Linds likes, the B&W version is here for colouring. *kisses to Linds*
