[info]atdelphi: FIC: "Roses in December" for odogoddess

Recipient: [info]psyfic
Author: ???
Title: Roses in December
Rating: R
Pairing: Minerva McGonagall/Neville Longbottom
Word Count: ~12,600
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Possible underage sex -- Neville is 17*.
Summary: As teacher and student, Professor McGonagall and Mr Longbottom understand their relationship very well. But what happens when they are forced to become Minerva and Neville? Set during the DH year.
Author's/Notes: [info]psyfic, you said you liked "extreme cross-gen" and gave "celebratory Minerva/Neville" as an example. I thought it would be an interesting challenge, and it was. I still don't know if I pulled it off, but I had a fine time writing this. Hope you like it.

Many thanks to my superbly-helpful and kind beta and to B for the gift of plot. "It's an homage, Perry."

[info]atdelphi: FIC: "Come Back to Haunt You" for therealsnape

Recipient: TheRealSnape
Author/Artist: ???
Title: Come Back to Haunt You
Rating: Teen
Pairings: Moaning Myrtle/Minerva McGonagall, background Minerva McGonagall/Amelia Bones
Word Count: 4000
Medium: Fic
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View):  *Grief; one character is dealing with the death of another. Also, an apparent May-December romance, although I believe the characters feel themselves to be of the same age.*.
Summary: Nothing about love makes sense.
Author's/Artist's Notes: In my universe, for a number of reasons you probably don’t need to hear about at length, Pottermore never existed. What you do need to know here is that your gentle author never adjusted her initial assessment of Minerva McGonagall’s age. The Minerva McGonagall of “Come Back to Haunt You” is a contemporary of Tom Riddle, as is the ghost known as Moaning Myrtle. Thank you to my accidental beta S and to for accepting the torch.

Title: The Aftermath
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Charity/Hermione, Dudley/Neville, Pomona/Minerva
Word Count: 3770 words
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *canon character death, fanon character survival*.
Summary: In the days after the Battle for Hogwarts, there was much healing work to be done. Fortunately all of creation was helping
Author's/Artist's Notes: Dear Songquake, I hope with all my heart that this amuses you. When you mentioned Charity surviving, a whole cascade of head-canon came flowing in, and this asked to be written. The inspiration for Dudley’s perhaps unlikely appearance comes from this artwork:
Many, many thanks and blessings to my kind and thoughtful betas MBR & K.

Author/Artist: ???
Title: The Cat and the Parasol
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Sybill Trelawney/Minerva McGonagall
Word Count: ~8063
Medium: Words. Lots of words, but perhaps not so many as others are using.
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Sex (oral, digital, magical) between the main characters. *.
Summary: Sybill Trelawney adjusts to her appointment as Hogwarts' Divination Professor.
Author's Notes: * Did you know there's regional variation in how the name "Sybill" is spelled? As in, there's one in the UK and another in the US. Since this is a gift, I took [info]fluffyllama's lead and used the spelling from her sign-up.
* [info]fluffyllama, I hope you enjoy this bit of insight into a relationship that features sex without "Twoo Wuv" and a relationship that "shouldn't work but somehow [does] against all the odds."
* Thank you to the squad of lightning-fast beta readers who looked this over after the last minute had long passed: A, R, and W. You are absolute lifesavers. Any remaining mistakes are my own.
* And thank you, once more, to [info]atdelphi, who has gone above and beyond her duty in coping with me. Thank you for hosting this fest, and not kicking me out on my arse weeks ago.

Pairings: Isobel (Ross) McGonagall / Robert McGonagall; Minerva McGonagall/ Dougal McGregor
Word Count: ~3,000
Medium: fic
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View):  *[None]*.
Summary: In which Isobel Ross marries a Muggle and Minerva McGonagall almost does the same
Author's/Artist's Notes: Nevrafire, I couldn’t quite work a Dumbledore/Minerva romance, but hopefully there’s enough of Minerva’s early life that you’ll be happy with it. This story is based on JKR's Pottermore canon for Minerva McGonagall

Recipient: escribo
Author/Artist: ???
Title: Calm Before The Storm
Rating: PG
Pairings: Minerva McGonagall/Madam Rosmerta
Word Count: 2700
Warnings/Content Information: None
Summary: It's 1970, and there are signs that all is not well in the Wizarding World. Rumours surround several mysterious disappearances, and even at Hogwarts a growing sense of unease can be detected. All the more reason, as far as Minerva McGonagall is concerned, why the fate of the annual Staff Summer Picnic should not be left in the hands of Albus Dumbledore.
Author's/Artist's Notes: Thank you to J. for all his help and S. for what must have been the most annoying beta ever.

Rating: R
Pairings: Irma Pince/Minerva McGonagall
Word Count: 6700
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *none*
Summary: A great many dreadful things have befallen the Hogwarts staff over the years, but the motivational training by Wilberforce (Bertie) Arbuthnot counts among the worst. However, Irma and Minerva rise to the occasion with the fortitude one may expect of two very capable women.
Author's/Notes: : My thanks, as always, to my fabulous betas. Not only for the many improvements they made to this story, but also for the courage with which they relived their worst Inspirational Speaker traumas and their generosity in allowing me to use them.

[info]atdelphi: FIC: "The Reluctant Phoenix" for dueltastic

Recipient: [info]dueltastic
Author/Artist: ???
Title: The Reluctant Phoenix
Rating: Up to NC-17 (although most of the story rates lower)
Pairings: Albus Dumbledore/Minerva McGonagall, Horace Slughorn/Elphias Doge, Albus Dumbledore/Horace Slughorn
Word Count: ~23,600
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Cross-gen - teacher/student (Minerva is 18), infidelity in secondary pairing.*.
Summary: Albus thought that he was a non-running member of the human race when it came to romantic relationships. If pushed, he would have said that he was the kind of wizard who preferred wizards. -All that, of course, was before Minerva came along.
Author's/Artist's Notes: Thanks to [info]dueltastic for such open-ended and thought-provoking prompts. I have tried to incorporate elements of your following suggestions into this story: "non-traditional relationships, things people make work in their own ways when it's not obvious how or why it does", "eras and places we see only hints of in canon", "age differences being acknowledged", "blurry definitions" and "fluidity in gender roles and sexual orientation." Many thanks also to [info]atdelphi for modding [info]hp_beholder 2013!

Author/Artist: ???
Title: Save the Last Dance for Me
Rating: PG
Pairings: Poppy Pomfrey/Minerva McGonagall
Word Count: ~ 3,5 k
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *None*.
Summary: Poppy hadn’t expected to find someone this late in life, but she was far from complaining.
Author's/Artist's Notes: I have never written either of those characters as the main focus of a fic before, let alone that pairing, and it was interesting as well as enjoyable. It probably wouldn’t hurt to know Minerva’s secondary canon for this fic as I used it quite a bit. Otherwise it sticks to canon as much as possible and takes place mostly during OotP. Many thanks go to W for beta’ing and cheerleading and to the mods for running this! I really hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it, thisaestus!
