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) [ 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 [ 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. )
slumber: (why do i adore you)
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.

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: Hallowed Halls
Rating/Warnings: G
Characters/Pairing: Minerva McGonagall, Eleven, Amelia
Summary: The Doctor promised Amelia an adventure.
Word Count: 1234
Author's Notes: Originally posted for [ profile] hh_writersblock here for the prompt Fandom Crossover. Wrote this in 30min, have only edited to add sorting information. This was one of the most fun to write out of all the [ profile] hh_writersblock challenges I've done.

There is something strange going on at Hogwarts. )

Sorry, afraid this week is going to be a whole bunch of fic posts. I'll space them out so they're not spammy. <3

Title: Scenes from the Hufflepuff Common Room
Character(s): Pomona Sprout, various others
Beta Reader(s): [ 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 [ 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.' )

Recipient: Written for [personal profile] mugglechump at [community profile] rarepair_shorts' Summer Wishlist fest, erm, sometime last week?
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).

'Features, Smith. I write features. Human interest, interviews, etcetera. Annabelle Cowley answers the letters addressed to Annabelle.' )
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: A Year in La Rochelle
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Draco/Hermione
Rating: NC17
Word Count: Under 8,000
Summary: A small town with a secret, a Ministry worker gone missing. Hermione and Ron are sent to investigate the Malfoys' involvement, but discovering the truth is only going to lead to a lot more trouble than it's worth.
Additional Notes: Written for [ profile] cryptaknight my first year of writing for [ profile] smutty_claus. Originally posted here.

Sturgis Podmore hadn’t wanted to retire. )

Title: The Things They Don't Tell You
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Percy/Oliver
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~3500
Summary: You had a plan, a path, a purpose, but nobody told you things didn't always work out to your liking.
Additional Notes: Way belated post, but I figured it better be in here for archiving purposes. I wrote this last year for [ profile] artemis_sparks for [ profile] hp_yule_balls fest. Never written this pairing before, I don't think. I kinda liked how it turned out.

To think once you thought the only thing your father lacked was ambition. )
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: 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: Never the Straight and Narrow
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Draco/Astoria, Draco/Pansy
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~1000
Summary: The problem with Slytherins was that they never did anything in a straightforward manner.
Additional Notes: Muchos gracias to [ profile] ccharlotte for the beta. Written for the [ profile] hp_unfaithful's Fabulous No-Pressure Laissez-Faire Challenge. Prompt: "Why didn't you just ask her to marry you instead?"

The problem with Slytherins was that they never did anything in a straightforward manner. )

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. )
slumber: (Default)
Title: Crashing
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Justin/Terry
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 1,229
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... )

Pairing: Roger Davies/Various

Summary: The trick to having, he is told, is not wanting.

'You know what people want the most?' he asks, shouting to be heard. )

Additional Notes: The third and last fic for [ profile] xylodemon's Ficlet-a-thon, still for [ profile] saphreanth. Ron/Pansy. Prompt: Girl, by The Beatles. I have been uncreative (please ignore the mood) and chosen to use the song titles for titles.
Update: This fic has been recced by [ profile] sandystarr88 at [ profile] het_reccers here and [ profile] silburygirl at [ profile] crack_broom here, and KIA here. Thanks! :)

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. )
