TEAM DRAGON ENTRY: Svartalfur "Polyjuice Pertinacity or The Tale of the Auror and the Whore" Title: Polyjuice Pertinacity or The Tale of the Auror and the Whore Author: Anders Svartalfurinn (svartalfur) Team: Dragon Genre: Postwar Prompts: Career Change, Infidelity. Rating/Warnings/Kinks: NC-17. Canon compliant except for the epilogue. (Snape lives!)* Infidelity, cross-dressing, smoking, abuse of potions and alcohol. References to pop culture (movies).* Word Count: ~ 22,000 Summary: Harry and Snape's jobs collide. A/N: This fic is a tribute to Billy Wilder's Irma la Douce. I shamelessly stole the idea and great chunks of the plot. Yet, Severus isn't sweet, Knockturn Alley isn't Paris, and, most importantly, there are no dragons in Wilder's comedies, and so the story turned out to have a mind of its own.
Huge thanks to my amazing betas, klynie1 (without you I'd have seen neither wood nor trees), joanwilder and angela_snape. Thank you to our awesome El Capitane, joanwilder, and my fellow Dragons for inspiration and support. Last but most definitely not least, a blazing ROAAARRRRR to djin7 and the mods for organising this wonderful fest. Thank you for all the hard work.
No phoenixes were harmed in the making of this fic.
