[info]beholder_mod: HP Beholder 2011 Fic & Art Master List

And here we have it, the 60 stories and works of art from this year's [info]hp_beholder exchange, now with names attached. Authors and Artist: you're at liberty to post your work wherever you want!

Once again, stories that were too long for a single IJ post were hosted on the HP Beholder Dreamwidth community. If anybody would like a Dreamwidth invite, email me at beholder.mod at gmail and let me know. Art, however, I still hosted on my own website, so Artists: please give me the new links for your art as soon as you re-upload, so that I can update the coding. And Authors: if you'd like me to add a preferred redirect for your stories, just let me know!




Statistics )

I'd like to close with a few thanks…first to all the participants and watchers who offered to pinch hit (and especially to the wonderful [info]florahart who actually did write a pinch hit - and did a brilliant job of it). I'd also like to thank the authors who graciously agreed to behind-the-scenes re-assignments when…issues arose. :D

And for the fourth year, many thanks to all our wonderful participants and all the folks who read stories and admired art and left feedback and made recs in their journals and who were so positive and supportive about the uncommon pairings that are at the heart of [info]hp_beholder.

[info]beholder_mod: FIC: "Records are for Keeping" for regan_v

Recipient: [info]regan_v
Author: [info]florahart
Title: Records are for Keeping
Rating: PG-ish (I can't explain it either)
Pairing: Irma Pince/Silvanus Kettleburn
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): * Nothing to speak of.*
Summary: There is no spell to account for people trying to take things from the library unnoticed. Irma sets out to fix that.
Author's Notes: The first name for Kettleburn comes from Beedle the Bard. We have no canon whatsoever for Pince's actual age or house (or Kettleburn's, although BB indicates he has been around since the era in which Tom Riddle was a student), so I am making her relatively new to Hogwarts in that same timeframe. My apologies for lack of smut; Silvanus didn't want to be too forward.

And to the ever-patient [info]bethbethbeth, my most heartfelt thanks.

[info]beholder_mod: ART: "Awkward Situation" for scarletladyy

Recipient: [info]scarletladyy
Artist: [info]vikingcarrot / [info]carrot
Title: Awkward Situation
Rating: R
Pairings: Macnair/Pansy
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Bondage, dubious
Artist's Notes: Though she isn't one of the options for Beholder, I chose to go with Pansy as the primary focus of this art, as you said she's your most favourite character. So Macnair will just have to suffer the indignity of not having his face visible and you can imagine he looks however you like. I hope you like the art, [info]scarletladyy. :)

Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *None*.
Summary: How terribly strange to be seventy… ("Old Friends", Simon and Garfunkel)
Author's Notes: tetleythesecond, I hope you love this. It's been a true labour of love. I'm so grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with these characters. I hope it's got enough realism - and theoretical magic - for you. To my beta T, thank you ever so for whipping this into shape at the last possible moment. You're a lifesaver. All remaining mistakes are mine. And finally, bethbethbeth, I thank you immensely for hosting this fest, for promoting unpopular characters, and for putting up with my terribly slow writing and revising process. You're a gentlewoman and a scholar.

Word Count: 4,700

Summary: Millicent Bustrode responds to a letter from a confused and desperate Muggle father.

[info]beholder_mod: ART: "Where Are You Going, My Love?" for vissy

Recipient: [info]vissy
Artist: [info]venturous / [info]venturous1
Title: Where Are You Going, My Love?
Rating: R
Pairings: Tom Riddle Sr., Merope Gaunt
Medium: photoshop
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *non-con implied, nudity*.
Summary:As the potion wears off, young Tom sees the girl he bedded more clearly, and is horrified.
Artist's Notes: I used the art of Egon Schiele and Harmen Jansz Muller . Schiele is well known for his disturbing and emaciated nudes. Muller is a 16th c engraver, about whom I found very little on the web. I have a wonderful 'Joseph & Potiphar's wife' engraving in a book, that gave me this composition. This theme shows the man fleeing the temptation of woman's clutches. A serious danger, as we all know.

[info]beholder_mod: FIC: "Big Girls Don't Cry" for odogoddess

Recipient: [info]psyfic
Author: [info]ragdoll
Title: Big Girls Don't Cry
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Charlie Weasley/Millicent Bulstrode, Charlie/OFC, mention of past Millicent/Theodore Nott
Word Count: ~11,000
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *forced bondage, hurt/comfort, verbal humiliation by OCs, frottage, hand-jobs*.
Summary:When Millicent Bulstrode was found guilty of colluding with known Death Eaters, she was forced to endure two years of indentured servitude at the Romanian Dragon Reserve waiting hand and foot on Charlie Weasley. It doesn't get more draconian than that.
Author's Notes: [info]psyfic, I was elated when I got your assignment and tried to give you as many things that you loved as I could. This was not even close to what I had originally planned on writing for you (or who!) but these two shouted the loudest and made their demands known. I certainly had fun giving in to them. I hope you enjoy it and will forgive me for the lack of Snapeness.

Thanks to R. for all of her support and nurturing, as well as K and S for betaing and cheerleading, and of course [info]bethbethbeth for being so patient and understanding.

Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Pomona Sprout/Irma Pince
Word Count: 1350
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): * A bit fluffy.*
Summary: It is the scent of her that clings to the air: warm, and earthy; dirt and skin and the faintest sheen of prickling sweat that draws Irma back to life on this night, in this moment.
Author's Notes: thank you, [info]bethbethbeth for putting up with me; and to [info]alwaysasnapefan for your lovely request. I haven't quite managed to get the adult content up and running in this fic, but I hope you still enjoy it ♥

Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Draco Malfoy/Gregory Goyle
Word Count: ~5,500
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *potions abuse*.
Summary: After the War, it's a dangerous juggling act for Greg Goyle to hold a self-destructive Draco back from the brink of disaster whilst keeping his attraction to him in check.
Author's Notes: Dear meri, I hope you enjoy this. I put in one of your favourite characters and it wound up a bit angsty :) Many, many thanks to my amazing beta Femme and a billion kisses to [info]bethbethbeth for bearing with my repeat tardiness and surprising injuries! The title is from the Elbow song, 'Can't Stop.'
