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."

Derp. I didn't miss the [ 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: [ profile] torino10154, I hope you enjoy this! I certainly had fun writing it. :) Much thanks to my beta, [ 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 [ profile] smutty_claus and originally posted here.

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: 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.

Title: Salvation by Slytherin
Author: [ profile] slumber
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~8,700
Warnings: Nothing, really. Plot, probably, and a disappointing lack of darkness.
Summary: All Terry Boot wants to do is author a book and perhaps rewrite history as wizarding society remembers it, but the Slytherins just won't cooperate. When a civil war erupts and Terry's only chance of escape involves working with a poorly-acronymed rebel group and an army of questionable professionals to take down the largest magical empire in the world, is his potential bestseller really worth all the trouble? (Theodore/Blaise, Draco/Terry, shades of Draco/Theodore.)
Disclaimers: If I owned Harry Potter, it wouldn't be about Harry Potter. Made up facts and figures derived from actual facts and figures found in Wikipedia.
Notes: Though the Slytherins were nowhere in the Battle of Hogwarts in the book, JKR has stated in later interviews that they were, so I've taken that for fact. This was written for [ profile] mr_mercutio during the recently concluded [ profile] hpvalensmut, originally posted here. Much thanks and love to [ profile] ccharlotte for the beta.

Title: Un Crimine in Tre Atti (A Crime in Three Acts)
Fandom: Harry Potter (barely :|)
Pairing: Roger/Blaise (hints of Blaise/Theodore)
Rating: R
Word Count: 350 words
Summary: Il Seduzione. La Relazione. Il Tradimento.
Additional Notes: Because things sound better in another language, hee. Written for [ profile] ccharlotte, though most of the inspiration for it came from her too. :P Happy Birthday! Here's to more random plotting, Roger and Blaise, growing old!, and eee, graduating and grad school! (See you in August! :D:D:D)

Atto I: Il Seduzione

It starts with a playful comment, like it always does. It follows through with a wink here, another smirk there, like it always has. But his eyes linger a second longer and you catch him then, and where you would not have pushed, you do.

(Cat-got-the-mouse grin, voice lowered to a murmur.) "Like what you see?"

Where he might have backed out, he doesn't.

(Tongue wetting full lips.) "Maybe."

Where you meant to keep your distance, you don't.

(Hips now dangerously close, lips moving against his ear.) "But you do, don't you?"

Where he would have said no--

(The softest, traitorous hitch of breath.) "Goddammit, Roger."

He doesn't.

The rest here. )

Title: The Assassin's Tango
Fandom: Weiss Kreuz
Pairing: Brad Crawford/Hidaka Ken
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~1,500
Summary: Life after Weiss isn't as easy to figure out, but Ken's taking it one day at a time.
Additional Notes: Written for [ profile] chaosraven for the [ profile] weissday challenge/fest here, this is (and will remain to be) my only venture into the Weiss Kreuz fandom, which is quite tragic, because I don't even ship brad/ken. :\

The first few weeks after they were first disbanded have been easy to figure out. )

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 [ 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: Definitions
Fandom: Harry Potter
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.  )

Additional Notes: Written for [ profile] ccharlotte, and written also for [ profile] fanfic100, under the prompt If.

Roger rolls the name on his tongue, contemplating it during practice, in class, as he catches glimpses of avoidant olive-green eyes across the Great Hall, along dungeon corridors and Hogsmeade weekends. )

Additional Notes: For [ profile] fanfic100, for the prompt Fall. Title, chapter titles and general inspiration taken from Robert Frost's poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay". Written from [ profile] ccharlotte's prompts: autumn, colour, subtle kissing--which I completely forgot. Shit. Sorry. :\

Pairing: Vague, but let's put it at Ravenclaws, although it could work with another pairing I like.

Word Count: 150 words--me and my love affair with the exact
Summary: There were gentler kisses now.
Additional Notes: For the [ profile] fanfic100 challenge, for the prompt Taste. I haven't written properly in ages so this is a little. Meh. Unexpected, I guess. I was trying to write something else.

There were kisses that burned his lips and marked his skin long after they first claimed him territory. There were kisses that haunted him long after they'd gone, kisses from a wide-eyed boy with messy hair and goofy grins, now a lonely boy with delicate wrists and soft lips and kisses that lingered. There were kisses that he remembered, kisses that he missed, kisses from the boy he loved who thought love wasn't enough.

There were kisses he learned to forget, kisses he learned to replace with kind smiles and shy hellos, hesitant pauses that eased back into years of friendship and light banter with the same wide-eyed boy who kissed his heart to pieces.

There were gentler kisses now because they meant nothing and, in being so, broke nothing. They were too fragile to break anymore, the boys and their kisses.

But one kiss might have made them whole.

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... )

Title: Fiction in the Spaces Between

Rating: PG
Word Count: 563 words
Summary: Lisa Turpin watches Ravenclaws from the sidelines.
Additional Notes: For the [ profile] fanfic100 prompt Middles. Also for [ profile] siobhanohare, because I couldn't finish the other fic just yet without getting distracted by this one. This was only supposed to be 100 words. :| Inspired in part by Telling Stories by Tracy Chapman. A little scattered, a little weird, I hope you forgive me. :|

She spends the hours making up stories. )
