[info]bethbethbeth: FIC: "Behind the Masks" for anguis_1

Recipient: [info]anguis_1
Author/Artist: ???
Title: Behind The Masks
Rating: R/NC-17
Pairings: Gregory Goyle/Marietta Edgecombe, mention of past Greg/Pansy Parkinson
Word Count: ~5500
Warnings/Content Information: *[frottage, semi-clothed sex, minor Hermione-bashing, minor Pansy-bashing]*.
Summary: Falmouth Falcons' Beater Gregory Goyle would never be the cleverest man in the room, but he wasn't quite as dim as people believed. Now if only he could get the team's new Healer, Marietta Edgecombe, to see that too.
Author's/Artist's Notes: [info]anguis_1, it was a pleasure writing for you – I'd never written either of these characters before, so it was a great experience to try my hand at both of them. I hope you like the results.

Much gratitude and thanks to my incredible brain stormers and hand holders: R & K & K2 & M, all of whom helped me figure out the whos as well as the wherefores and whys of this fic, and wouldn't let it defeat me, and my betas: K & K2 (again!) plus J for making it so much better than it was. And of course, much love to our ever-patient mod, [info]bethbethbeth, who puts up with my tardiness year after year.

[info]beholder_mod: FIC: "Walking Shadow" for squibstress

Recipient: Squibstress
Author: [info]synn
Title: Walking Shadow
Rating: R/NC17
Pairings: Hagrid/Draco, with a side of unresolved Snape/Draco
Word Count: ~4000
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *A little non-sexual spanking? Maybe a hint of dub-con if you look at it sideways and backwards.*.
Summary: "To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing." (Macbeth V.v.19-28).
Author's Notes: Many, many thanks to my beta L; all remaining errors are, of course, my own.
I'm afraid there's more operetta here than opera, but I tried to include hints of it without betraying my own, woefully inadequate knowledge of the art. That said, I really hope you enjoy it.
*All quoted lyrics come from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado.
