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.

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!

Author's Notes: I’m sorry I couldn’t give you a paring with Severus – it just refused to be written :/ So I genuinely hope you enjoy some Regulus instead.

Summary: “...and with a burning pain in my heart I realized how unnecessary, how petty, and how deceptive all that had hindered us from loving was. I understood that when you love you must either, in your reasonings about that love, start from what is highest, from what is more important than happiness or unhappiness, sin or virtue in their accepted meaning, or you must not reason at all.”

[info]bethbethbeth: FIC: " Professor C. Binns: A Personal History" for odogoddess

Recipient: [info]psyfic
Author: ???
Title: Professor C. Binns: A Personal History
Rating: PG
Pairings: Cuthbert Binns/Walburga Black, Walburga Black/Orion Black
Word Count: ~13,300
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Strong language (one use), one moment of domestic violence *
Summary:Transcribed from back cover of book:

Professor Cuthbert Binns (living: 1865-1963, haunting: 1963- ) is the leading Magical Historian of his day. He has published widely on topics ranging from, 'The origins of magic in native rock art,' to 'Wizard-Muggle relations through the ages', and was awarded an Order of Merlin (second class) in 1936, when his seminal work, 'A History of the magical world in 100,000 pages' became the best-selling Historical text on record.

This volume, however, is - for the first time - autobiographical in nature. It is thus somewhat experimental in nature, but serves to remind both the author and the reader that we each build the fabric of History, in our own ways, however small.

"Being in love with a person is more difficult than being in love with a book. You can carry a book with you wherever you go, but a person moves around on their own, and one is never sure where they are or where one will see them, next. Also, books get older in a predictable way: if you take good care of them they don't seem very different at all - aside from the odd scratch on the cover or a looseness to the spine - but people can change their thoughts and feelings and opinions, such that what was once written there disappears altogether and is replaced by information of an entirely different sort.

That is why people are so difficult."

Author: C. Binns.
Dictation: Gluey the House elf.
Production: A.P.W.B. Dumbledore, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,
Published, 1964; Revised, 1991.

Author's Notes: Cuthbert, Walburga and Orion belong, of course, to JKR. This tale is also somewhat inspired by 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' by Mark Haddon.

Many thanks to [info]bethbethbeth for once again running this marvellous fest, and to [info]psyfic - whose request included 'friendship' and 'a meeting of the minds' - for giving me the freedom to write this.

Word Count: 4000
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): * References to canon character deaths *.
Summary: They meet, inauspiciously, at a funeral.
Author's Notes: Many thanks to K for the beta, and to Beth for being an Awesome Mod. [info]woldy, I hope you enjoy this. I loved the idea of this pairing, and when I came to write it I found that I could not do it without reference to their very similar life situations, left raising grandsons alone. There is therefore a considerable amount of Teddy in this fic, but I have tried, re your sign-up request, to not make it the absolute focus of the story. I hope the result works for you.
