Recipient: [info]therealsnape
Author/Artist: Inspire [info]inspired_ideas
Title: Face on by Daylight
Rating: PG
Pairings: Minerva McGonagall / Poppy Pomfrey
Word Count: ~2,700
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *None*.
Summary: It takes more than four Stunners to the chest to take down Minerva McGonagall.
Author's Notes: Bits of dialog from JKR's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix were lifted for the making of this story and are presented in bold type. I tried to incorporate [info]therealsnape's likes for teacher fic, missing moments from canon, canon re-told with a twist, Minerva McGonagall, and women being awesome in the gift.

[info]beholder_mod: FIC: "Walking Shadow" for squibstress

Recipient: Squibstress
Author: [info]synn
Title: Walking Shadow
Rating: R/NC17
Pairings: Hagrid/Draco, with a side of unresolved Snape/Draco
Word Count: ~4000
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *A little non-sexual spanking? Maybe a hint of dub-con if you look at it sideways and backwards.*.
Summary: "To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing." (Macbeth V.v.19-28).
Author's Notes: Many, many thanks to my beta L; all remaining errors are, of course, my own.
I'm afraid there's more operetta here than opera, but I tried to include hints of it without betraying my own, woefully inadequate knowledge of the art. That said, I really hope you enjoy it.
*All quoted lyrics come from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado.
