Fic: Meeting the Challenge (of Dark Eyes & Dancing Hippopotami), Bill/Tonks, NC-17
Title: Meeting the Challenge (Of Dark Eyes and Dancing Hippopotami)
Prompt: #62 "Tried to give you consolation when your old man had let you down."
Pairing(s): Bill Weasley/Nymphadora Tonks
Word Count: 10,100
Author/Artist's notes: Thanks to r_grayjoy, green_amber and katesque for their help and support, and luvscharlie for betaing. twilightsorcery gave me the joke about Tonks's knickers (and the original source is a Questionable Content webcomic). The kitchen!sex scene was inspired by this piece of art which was a commission done for me by lizardspots nearly 3 years ago as well as the film, The Baker, starring Damian Lewis. My original plan was to do something a lot closer to the original story of the song "Layla" (where the prompt comes from) but somehow Tonks, Remus and Bill refused to play Patti Boyd, George Harrison and Eric Clapton for me. So this is what happened instead.
Disclaimer: It's not my sandbox, I only play here.

Just a quick note to our participants --
We didn't think to put this in the rules because we hadn't expected anyone not to do it but...
We love that you're crossposting your stuff elsewhere and please feel free to do it but could you please use fake LJ cuts to bring people to this comm to read/see them? We definitely can use the traffic and it would be great promotion for everyone involved. There will be more fic and art coming and we don't want anyone to be overlooked. We've noticed a few things being picked up by the HP online newsletters and it's really disheartening when they go to your personal journals rather than the comm.
