SNARRY SWAP: Gift for: veridari, "In Like a Lion"
Title: In Like a Lion
Gift Recipient: veridari
Other Pairings/Threesomes: Severus/Harry, implied Hermione/Ron
Word Count: 9,900
Prompt: (highlight for spoilers) *Possessive!Snape, adult!Harry, versatile partnering, first time [together], romance, light angst, wall sex, rimming, light bondage, hidden attraction, post Hogwarts, bonding [magical and ceremonial], happy ending*
Summary: When the Ministry throws a five-year anniversary Ball to commemorate the end of the war, Hermione decides she’s run out of patience with Harry’s love life – or lack of it – and enlists the help of a colleague to nudge things along.
A/N: To my giftee: I hope this story brings a smile to your face and a flush to your cheeks, for to do both means I have succeeded. It was so much fun writing for you.
To my betas, ChooseToLive and gingertart50: Those red pens you wield… well, they scare me a bit at times, but ultimately your keen eyes and spot-on feedback refine not only the story, but me too. Thank you, thank you.
To the mods: Hats off to you for shepherding this fest! It makes ringing in the new year decidedly brighter (and smuttier), and really, what could be better than that?
