Together they attempt to solve the case that has haunted Moody for a decade. Together they face immense dangers as they land on the Unplottable Isle of Drear. To solve the case, the group of determined wizards must learn to cooperate, solving the riddle of the mysterious disappearances. Moody, however, finds more than just the answer to that. Much more.
Author's/Artist's Notes: For [info]leela_cat who wanted plot, dialogue and inventive uses of magic. Dear Leela, I hope you enjoy this romantic suspense drama; I think I managed to fulfil at least a few of your wishes on the way. I have enjoyed many of your stories, so it was a great pleasure to write and draw something for you. Thanks to my wonderful and helpful beta, G, for her never-wavering support. Without her, I could't have accomplished this. Also thanks to [info]bethbethbeth for patience, encouragement and a bit of hand-holding. Thanks, Beth, you are great! <3 The full text of the 1542 Witchcraft Act can be found here.

Artist: [info]carrot / [info]vikingcarrot
Title: Titles are hard.
Rating: NC-17, definitely not worksafe
Pairing: Macnair/Luna
Warnings: Non-con, awesome size difference, body piercings \
Artist's Notes: Macnair couldn't be much more smug if he tried, and Luna... well. Poor Luna. For the general observer, please note that the size difference is intentional - Macnair is huge and Luna is little - she is not a child. For [info]thilia, I hope you enjoy the art! :)
