Title: "Maybe You Should Get Out More"|
Artist: Fool #15
Pairings/Characters: Remus/Sirius and Harry/Draco
Warnings/Kinks: umm... odd proportions?
Summary: A nostalgic trip to the zoo requires more negotiation than planned on.
Artist's Notes: I considered rendering the conversation that is being held here, but what the viewer cannot immediately guess probably concerns that Sirius and Draco apparently turned up in the same shirt.

Title: The Next Three Days|
Artist: Fool #14
Warnings/Kinks: Table!molestings, portrait!voyeurism, masturbation (hey, it's your call what Cedric is doing ;D)
Summary: Auror Potter has been called to Hogwarts to find out what is haunting the library. He didn't except the haunter to be alive, but he isn't complaining that much. Neither is Cedric.
Artist's Notes: The base is Hagrid's sugar cookie recipe taken out of the Harry Potter Cookbook. This didn't end up being the tastiest thing (the darker lines are straight flavoring and it made things weird), but it was fun to try. :) The cookie recipe by itself is amazing, I must say. Also, that thing between the portrait and the sexing is supposed to be a bookcase. (Title is in reference to original prompt.)

Title: Bring Me A Surprise!|
Artist: Fool #13
Pairing: Pairings are up to you
Summary: Just some sample label designs for a special new series of Weasley's Wizard Wheezes ...
Artist's Notes: I wanted to get familiar with GIMP and my Tweak Says was too perfect. I hope you find these amusing!

Title: I Know The Plan|
Artist: Fool #12
Warnings/Kinks: A dose of angst but utterly porn free.
Summary: Severus knows. He even understands. But he doesn't have to like it.
Artist's Notes: I'm actually pretty pleased with the hand here, but an artist I am not. (It's sad how long this took me.) Hope you like it anyway! :)

Title: Follow the Spiders|
Artist: Fool #11
Medium: Clay and paint
Warnings/Kinks: Bad camera angles, funky-looking fingers, stupid clay cracks
Summary: The evil Captain Riddle has captured Dumblepan's newest friend, Minerva Bell, and has convinced her to tell him where Dumblepan is hiding.
Artist's Notes: You said 'fairy tale' and this popped into my head immediately (among other things), but my mind wouldn't get off this. So you get a fairy! I promise, those horribly-done fingers are Tom's fingers. :D

Title: The Sky Is So Green Today|
Artist: Fool #8
Medium: Sweet Home 3D, Apple Paintbrush.
Characters: Mad-Eye Moody, Firenze, Nagini
Rating: G. Seriously.
Warnings/Kinks: None at all.
Summary: A chance encounter can change everything.
Artist's Notes: My prompt was: "Firenze, Moody, Nagini (not all together [unless you WANT to]) but I'm open to anything with any of those characters. Theme: outside the norm."
Well, I have never written or drawn anything with any of these three characters, so this was very much of a think outside the norm for me too!
And my sincere apologies re. Firenze: I tried so, so hard to find a bare-chested blond man and Palomino-coloured horse body, to no avail. Finally had to just kluge in the blondness, and forget the Palominoness :(

Title: I Have A Proposition For You|
Artist: Fool #7
Medium: Pen & pencil
Characters: Fenrir Greyback, random werewolves, random female
Warnings/Kinks: Implied violence, implied death. Also first artwork since middle school.
Summary: Fenrir and the gang play fetch.
Artist's Notes: As soon as I got the Tweak I knew exactly what I wanted to draw. (Actually drawing it was a whole other matter). I know you said not much gore, Prompter, so I hope that implied gore is ok.

Mod: *kicks this into the right journal for posting* Ooops....|
Title: House Rules All
Artist: Fool #6
Pairings/Characters: Minerva McGonagall/Tom Riddle
Summary: In the game of "which house is best", the first to touch themselves loses. Minerva doesn't consider it cheating if she's only touching herself with a flogger. That's just good fun.
Artist's Notes: I sincerely hope you enjoy my tribute to your OTP, dear mystery recipient!

Title: Will You Take Me to the Ball?|
Artist: Fool #5
Medium: Paper, pencil, colored pencils, crayons, cut up Ziploc bag, gluestick, and MS Paint.
Rating: PG for language (mostly in the Artist's Note)
Warnings/Kinks: SHARK! Also, off-color humor in the Artist's Note.
Summary: Harry takes Draco on a tropical vacation.
Artist's Notes: I haven't tried drawing human figures since I was fourteen, and I start with figures swimming? I'm a masochist for sure! Also, I forgot that crayon smears graphite :-\ Also, the Ziploc bag didn't show up much on the scan, but is supposed to represent the Bubble-Head Charm, so it's been digitally outlined.
...Thanks to the mods for hosting this fest, and for not killing me when a dispute between my scanner and my computer prevented me from timely submission. Heh, I said submission. Submission and masochism both mentioned in the Artist's Note, but a disappointing lack of smut on the picture. What can I say -- it's hard to get it on while wearing wetsuits and Bubble-Head Charms. I hope you enjoy!

Artist: Fool #4
Medium: Chalk on blackboard, PS
Rating: R? NC-17?
Warnings/Kinks: bestiality, unrealistic proportions of male/wolf genitals
Summary: Severus wants it, tied to the rough fir, the full moon the only light, and the beast prowling the Forbidden Forest. Remus knows what Severus wants. And the beast complies.
Artist's Notes: I tried to make this into a .gif with a Lumos! illuminating the scene like a flash. Alas, my computer skills match my artistic ones.

Title: You Said You Loved Me|
Artist: Fool #3
Rating: Clearly NC-17
Warnings: Anal, Toys, Voyeurism?
Medium: Pencil, Colored Pencils, Photoshop manipulation.
Author's Note: The prompter wanted Severus/Harry, Mountains and a Butt Plug. Combined with the Tweak Title - I had a really hard time with this concept. Had to go with a dildo instead of a Butt Plug. I hope that works! I think some nosy hotel minion is peaking in on our lovebirds late one night. I'm also going with that the fact they have gone off on a sexy, sexy vacation to the mountains together. Proof enough that someone loves someone - spoken or not! And I still can't draw worth a used kleenex.

Title: We don't need rings or vows|
Artist: Fool #2
Media: various pencils, natural white sketch paper, Photo Shop
Pairings: George Weasley/Viktor Krum
Summary: Just as they needed no rings or vows to prove they were in love, George and Viktor could care less about spring. After all, snuggling and falling asleep on the sofa while holding hands was just as good.
A/N: Anyone recognize George's shirt? ;)

Title: It's Never Good To Drink on the Job!
Artist: Fool #1
Medium: Fabric, thread, carpet tread, buttons, sharpie.
Warnings/Kinks: nudity (without their thingies, sorry couldn't do it, I did try) and sex (if you squint really hard)
Summary: Severus visits Hagrid the next day after his spider friend died and before they both they knew it the drink was flowing and...well you know ^_~
Artist's Notes: I hope you like it :D You wanted romance and because I wasn't writing nor doing art the next thing I could do was plush dolls, I hope they look like the characters I intended :)
