Snarry-a-Thon20: FIC: Beginner’s Guide to Breaking Up with Your In-Laws  
Title: A Beginner’s Guide to Breaking Up with Your In-Laws (A Rom/Com in Three Acts)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] suitesamba
Word Count: 31,500
Rating: Mature
Warnings: None
Pairings: Harry/Ginny, Harry/Severus, Harry/OC, Ron/Hermione
Prompt: Wildcard – After his divorce, Harry remains close to his in-laws. Too close.
Summary: Harry, divorced from Ginny for more than a year, spends so much time with her parents that he may as well be dating them. When Charlie comes home for a visit, he realises that Harry's social life revolves around Molly and Arthur and comes to the rescue. His old friend Severus Snape owes him a favour and he calls it in - for Harry. Severus, charged with introducing Harry to gay Wizarding life in London, arranges two nearly perfect blind dates for Harry. The men are everything Harry thought he wanted - but it turns out Harry really didn't know what he wanted at all.
A/N: Thank you [info]accioslash for the in-laws prompt (and yes, it does kind of mirror my life, doesn’t it?) and readers for giving a Tom Hanks style Rom/Com a try. Big thank you to the mods and the betas and the proofreaders and all the readers who help make this fest such an ongoing success. Kudos to you all!

But first, there was a Huntsman.
A/N: Many, many thanks to my wonderful betas, names currently redacted for anonymity. Thank you for catching all my weird sentences and failure to add enough commas. Thank you so much to the lovely prompter for suggesting a fairy tale retelling. I could not resist, and I hope you enjoy it!

Rating: Mature

A/N: Thank you for this lovely prompt, prompter! This fic just sort of exploded out of me at the last minute, but I like how it turned out. It was also influenced by Prompt No. 30: A sees B dancing at a Ministry ball and can't resist the urge to cut in.

Other pairings/threesome: Harry Potter/Severus Snape, Rolanda Hooch/Pomona Sprout
Rating: Mature
Word count: 1400
Content/Warning(s): Frequent mentions of gay sex, in the abstract, mpreg
Prompt: 131: Harry and Severus have started dating but haven't slept together yet. Severus assumes Harry has enough experience because of his celebrity status and/or past relationship with Ginny. Harry assumes Severus must've had at least one or two partners in the past because of his age. Neither are correct; both of them are virgins who haven't gone further than kissing.
Summary: Harry Potter and Severus Snape are many things - war heroes, learned professors, eligible bachelors, the list goes on. The one thing they are not, however, is sexually experienced. An overheard discussion changes all that.
A/N: My sincerest thanks to the mods, and badgerlady, for accepting this late entry, I saw the prompt three days after the deadline, and I just had to claim it. To the submitter of this delicious prompt, thank you. I quite enjoyed writing this!
