Breaking the Seal Rating:
NC-17 in the end, though most of the fic is not about sex Pairings:
Petunia/Percy (previous Petunia/Vernon) Word Count:
nearly 30,000 Warnings:
Vernon is a violent bastard; this probably isn't news but Petunia reflects on it and we see some new violent, and sexually-violent, behavior. Summary:
Petunia didn't know why she'd kept the box under Lily's bed, but it turned out, it might be useful. Author's Notes:
I'm sorry I couldn't make Pince and Binns have a love affair. Ironically, I kept trying to think about it and going...but I don't think I can do that without it turning into a novella; I really should do something I can do right in 10,000 words. *looks at wordcount* Yes, that went well. Thanks to the folks who listened to me bitch and moan about the extent to which this was exceeding my plans (one of whom correctly smote me for canon failure; thank you), and to my beta for catching roughly a million typos and comma failures.

And with this wonderfully long story (our third
post for today!), we've come to the end of the first hp_beholder
fic and art exchange. Thanks to everybody for participating as authors and artists and readers and viewers! Remember there's still time to catch up - and comment - before the reveals on Monday, May 12th.
