[info]beholder_mod: FIC: "Fostering Witch-Muggle Understanding" for songquake

Recipient: songquake
Author: [info]slytherite
Title: Fostering Witch-Muggle Understanding
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Hestia Jones/Petunia Dursley, background Vernon Dursley/Petunia Dursley
Word Count: 13,848
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): * Adultery in a dying marriage, homophobia, a few swears, and strongly implied sex. *.
Summary: One can learn a lot from a freak, Hestia Jones discovers, if one is willing to take the time to listen.
Author's Notes: Songquake requested plot, canon compliance, homo/bisexuality, and collisions between the wizarding and Muggle worlds; the last prompt was absolutely irresistible, particularly when Petunia poked her nose into it. Hopefully I’ve done it justice here.
I’d like to thank bethbethbeth for running this fantastic fest, my fandom-unaffiliated sister for telling me that "whirly blades" is not nearly as mellifluous a phrase as I’d thought (and giving me a much-needed prod to finish), and J.K. Rowling for making the whole thing possible.

Author's/Artist's Notes: Thank you to A for bringing Beholder to my attention, thank you the folk who run it. Thanks so much to [info]accioslash for the beta and support. Donna, I know you said you "prefer to pair up canon characters with each other rather than with OCs", but I hope given the canon characters you'll forgive my overlooking this preference.

[info]beholder_mod: FIC: 'Breaking the Seal' for djinnj

(Note to the Mystery Author: [info]djinnj is currently out of the country and may be unable to comment for a day or so, but she wanted you to know that she's very excited about this story and will be reading it just as soon as she can!)

Recipient: [info]djinnj
Author: [info]florahart
Title: Breaking the Seal
Rating: NC-17 in the end, though most of the fic is not about sex
Pairings: Petunia/Percy (previous Petunia/Vernon)
Word Count: nearly 30,000
Warnings: Vernon is a violent bastard; this probably isn't news but Petunia reflects on it and we see some new violent, and sexually-violent, behavior.
Summary: Petunia didn't know why she'd kept the box under Lily's bed, but it turned out, it might be useful.
Author's Notes: I'm sorry I couldn't make Pince and Binns have a love affair. Ironically, I kept trying to think about it and going...but I don't think I can do that without it turning into a novella; I really should do something I can do right in 10,000 words. *looks at wordcount* Yes, that went well. Thanks to the folks who listened to me bitch and moan about the extent to which this was exceeding my plans (one of whom correctly smote me for canon failure; thank you), and to my beta for catching roughly a million typos and comma failures.

Breaking the Seal )

And with this wonderfully long story (our third post for today!), we've come to the end of the first [info]hp_beholder fic and art exchange. Thanks to everybody for participating as authors and artists and readers and viewers! Remember there's still time to catch up - and comment - before the reveals on Monday, May 12th.

Recipient: [info]florahart
Author: [info]lyras
Title: The Exiles
Rating: R
Pairings: Petunia/Charlie, Petunia/Vernon
Word Count: 7,750
Warnings: I think we can assume that Petunia is not entirely faithful here, but I hope I have treated the situation with respect.
Summary: Six months into her exile in the wizarding world, Petunia meets someone who forces her to examine both herself and her relationship with her husband.
Author's Notes: I hope you enjoy this, [info]florahart! Thanks to [info]mindabbles for making this a much better piece of work than it would otherwise have been.

[info]beholder_mod: FIC: 'All Things Right and Proper' for lyras

Recipient: [info]lyras
Author: [info]donnaimmaculata
Title: All Things Right and Proper
Rating: R for darkish themes, language, some sexual contents and allusions to drug abuse
Pairings: Petunia Dursley/Vernon Dursley, Augusta Longbottom/Frank Longbottom Sr., Minerva McGonagall/Aberforth Dumbledore
Word Count: 24,700
Warnings: Vernon Dursley as a lust object. Yeah, I know.
Summary: During the Dark Lord's rise to power, three women struggle for their families, their love and their lives. Or, in less summer-blockbuster-y words: Glimpses into the lives of Petunia, Minerva and Augusta during the events of The Deathly Hallows
Author's Notes: Lyras, you asked for character studies, women kicking ass, plot, characters who aren't black or white, 'fade to black' rather than PWP, UST, working around canon, angst with hope. I tried to squeeze in as many of your requests as possible. Hope you enjoy!
Bonus points for everyone who spots the obscure crossover.
