Secret Snarry Swap: FIC: Restoration of Hogwarts: A Story of Love and Magic, by Rita Skeeter  
Title: The Restoration of Hogwarts: A Story of Love and Magic, by Rita Skeeter.
Author:
Other pairings/threesome: Only pairings from JKR!Canon
Rating: PG-13
Word count: ~9,000 words
Content/Warning(s): Nothing you wouldn’t expect from the pairing and the prompt. Not even explicit smut. Seriously. I have disappointed myself.
Prompter/Prompt: No. 29 from [info]leontinabowie: Eighth Year. Harry needs to improve his Potions grade so he starts taking private lessons with Severus. With a new insight into what Severus is really like, Harry for the first time doesn't see him with suspicion but with intrigue, and rather likes what he sees. Flirty!Harry
Summary: Rita Skeeter proposes to document the reconstruction works at Hogwarts for historical purposes. Snape gives away more than he planned.
A/N: I haven’t written anything Potter-related in years and it felt rather like coming home :’) (But it also explains the stiffness of the writing…) Besides, Harry Potter came to Netflix on Halloween and, an eight-film marathon later, I managed to remind myself why I love this… It also means there might be some inconsistencies regarding the bookverse! Oh, and not quite Eighth Year, but I something like that. Enjoy!

Author:
Other pairings/threesome: Ron/?, Severus/OMCs (not graphic), Hermione/George
Rating: PG
Word count: ~4400
Content/Warning(s): None
Prompter/Prompt: No. 44 from [info]writcraft: A 'five times' holiday themed fic, e.g. 'five times Severus didn't buy Harry a gift and one time he did' or 'five times Harry didn't kiss Severus at the Ministry Yule Ball and one time he did' or whatever other scenario takes your fancy. Basically a story or piece of art which looks at Harry and Snape through holidays over the years, and eventually culminates in them together.
Summary: Harry has a crush on Severus but can't seem to find a way to let him know...until he finally does.
A/N: Thank you so much to Badgerlady for beta-ing this! I had fun writing it, and I hope it's enough of the trope to make you happy, Prompter, though I apologize in advance for the lack of smut.

Secret Snarry Swap: FIC: Unfolding  
Title: Unfolding
Author:
Other pairings/threesome: none
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 8058
Content/Warning(s): PTSD, mentions of abuse.
Prompter/Prompt: No. 16 from [info]smirkingcat: Harry was certain, that if it wasn't for his mother's green eyes, Severus would have never given him any chance in the first place. Even years after they announced their relationship, Harry still feels like he is living in the shadow of his mother. But then Severus managed to find a way to lay all his worries and doubts to rest (you can totally switch and tell it from Severus' pov).
Summary: "Dying men are desperate, Mr Potter." Snape's fingers drummed against his glass as he spoke. "I clearly wasn't in my right mind – and neither were you as it seems. I thought I had failed your mother. It wasn't your eyes I wanted to see, but hers."
A/N: A massive thank you to my beta thegreatsnapescape, who kept me sane throughout this process. Your thoughts and ideas were invaluable.

Magic and Mixology at McCauley's Pub R, 8,712 words

LJ, IJ, DW

Of Toadstones and Indecent Toggery NC-17, 6,736 words
Summary: Severus is in a bit of tight spot. He needs a Toadstone for a potion he is brewing. Toadstones cure nearly any affliction and negate any poisons, but the only problem is…they are exceedingly rare...and the side effects cause strong, drugged hallucinations, therefore heavily regulated by the Ministry. A certain twenty-one-year-old and newly single Auror is the only one Snape knows who has access to such things at the Ministry. Severus is quite desperate, and admittedly hasn’t had a decent shag in nearly a decade. Potter has grown to be quite the stud, and Severus decides that maybe a little seduction might help his cause, even if they may have put the past behind them.

Secret Snarry Swap: FIC: A Radical Change in (Self) Perception  
Title: A Radical Change in (Self) Perception
Author:
Other pairings/threesome: Background Ron/Hermione.
Rating: Explicit/NC-17
Word count: ~57000
Content/Warning(s): EWE. Oral. First Time. Christmas fluff. Touches on past childhood abuse/neglect/trauma, domestic violence and grief. Vague allusions to under-18 sexual activity.
Prompter/Prompt: No. 9 from [info]ladyofsd: Freaky Friday the movie meets Snarry. After the unexpected switch, they both find out the other is gay. Harry also discovers Snape is a brilliant flyer, and Snape learns how excellent Harry is at teaching.
Summary: Harry should know better than to touch museum exhibits, especially in a magical museum. Now he's in trouble...
A/N: So my left brain said 'Oh, twenty thousand words of fluffy comedy, a reasonable proposition', but my right brain heard '50,000 WORDS OF PERSPECTIVE HOPS, BODYSWAP SEX AND FEELINGS, COMING RIGHT UP'. Also, I have to confess to my prompter, I have only seen the 2003 Freaky Friday, and I'm not sure this fic has kept as much of the flavour as I originally intended. Although it may be at least partially responsible for Punk!Snape...

Author:
Other pairings/threesomes: Ginny Weasley/Draco Malfoy, Other pairings will be revealed below
Rating: Teen and above
Word count: 3287
Content/Warning(s): Mpreg
Prompter/Prompt: No. 49 from [info]suitesamba: Newly-married Ginny Weasley has decided that Harry, too, needs a spouse. She begins interviewing candidates, and Severus decides to give it a go and schedule an interview. The problem is, Ginny doesn't know Harry is gay and is interviewing only women.
Summary: Newly married Ginny Malfoy has decided that her “brother from another mother” has been lonely long enough. With the help of Narcissa Malfoy (who quickly commandeers the effort), Molly Weasley, and Hermione Granger, prospective brides are interviewed, and a list of seemingly suitable witches is compiled. They are to meet Harry and his extended family, where Harry will meet the candidates and choose his bride. Rita Skeeter eavesdrops on their plans and they become headline news. Severus Snape “reads all about it” and decides to add his name to the list. Severus Snape makes quite an entrance, Snarry ensues. And there is a crazy pub crawl with magical Cher impersonators.
A/N: The characters belong to JKR, Bloomsbury Books, and Warner Brothers. The prompt belongs to the prompter (bravo), the direction I took said prompt is all my doing. No performance enhancers (or inhibitors) were used while composing this piece of fluffy crack, unless you count caffeine - I’ve had plenty of that. I think it shows.
