[info]atdelphi: FIC: "The Muggles Have a Word for Them" for lash_larue

Recipient: [info]lash_larue
Author: ???
Title: The Muggles Have a Word for Them
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Rolanda Hooch/Aurora Sinistra, Fat Lady/Violet, background Minerva McGonagall/Elphinstone Urquart
Word Count: 8250
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *none*.
Summary: In which the Fat Lady plays matchmaker and learns some new vocabulary.
Author's Notes: Though JKR may be coy when it comes to directly acknowledging same-sex relationships in HP, she's kindly given us subtext galore. Fat Lady/Violet is practically canon (if you ask me), and then there are all those lovely dykes with short grey hair and monocles. So I thought it was about time that someone brought their story out into the open. I hope you enjoy this, dear [info]lash_larue; it's been a pleasure to write for you. Many thanks to my fantastic betas.

The story takes place before the arrival of the Trio at Hogwarts -- c. 1986.

Summary: Everyone knows there are two types of librarian in the world. And everyone knows which type Irma Pince is. Or so they think.
Author's Notes: I admit, I had a little trouble deciding what to do with such an open-ended request at first, but Irma stepped up and insisted on having her story – or stories, rather – told. I hope you enjoy, [info]therealsnape!

[info]beholder_mod: FIC: "Rebuilding" for synn

Recipient: synn
Author: [info]psyfic
Title: Rebuilding
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Hagrid/Aberforth, Snape/Hooch (Hagerforth & Snooch? Doesn't that sound like a Wizarding Law Firm?)
Word Count: ~10,300
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Size queens, rather a lot of spunk, frottage, wall sex, first time. There is no bestiality but it is alluded to in re: the expected canon character.*
Summary: Two couples are brought together during the time of Hogwarts' rebuilding...
Author's Notes: You wrote: 'I like the idea of Snape/anybody, and Harry/Hagrid is a favorite.' Well, Hagrid already had a partner for the story, but I decided to include his and Harry's friendship here. I took your Snape/anybody at face value and hope you enjoy that pairing. You also wrote: 'I like details about little everyday magic more than large rituals, I love Hogwarts itself as a location: the history imbued in it, the thought of rebuilding after the war, etc.' So I used a bit of all that and I hope it suits. Happy Beholding!

[info]bethbethbeth: FIC: "Zinnia and Honeysuckle" for atdelphi

Recipient: Delphi ([info]atdelphi)
Author/Artist: [info]synn, aka Three Sided Orchid
Title: Zinnia and Honeysuckle
Rating: um. R?
Pairings: Hooch/Sprout // Hooch/Neville (if you squint)
Word Count: ~1,200
Warnings: Featured Character Death.
Summary: Muggle plants bloom out of season in the wizarding world. They flourish and wither at the whim of magical energies, a barometer of wizard emotions.
Author's/Artist's Notes: Delphi, I’d wanted to give you something more smutty and less serious, ideally without the /see warnings/, but I’m pretty much a captive to my muse; where she goes, I must follow. I started this intending to incorporate a lot of your likes, but I’m afraid many of them got lost along the way, so I’m hoping you enjoy it anyway.
This story uses references to Victorian flower language. A key to flowers mentioned (where not given in the text) is at the end. All meanings pulled from this website.

[info]beholder_mod: ART: 'Nurturing One of Our Own' for hazelhawthorne

Recipient: [info]hazelhawthorne
Artist: [info]florence_craye
Title: Nurturing One of Our Own
Rating: PG-13 for partial nipple
Pairings: Poppy Pomfrey, Minerva McGonagall, Sybil Trelawney, Rolanda Hooch, Pomona Sprout, and Irma Pince.
Warnings: none
Media: construction paper collage, watercolor, ink, charcoal, plus a couple digital touch-ups
Summary: Poppy Pomfrey is always taking care of the Hogwarts inhabitants. So several of the female Hogwarts staff decided it was time she was cared for with a group massage!
Artist's Notes: I decided to go for an expressionist style, since there's some emotional energy in the idea behind it. Each woman is painted in colors associated with her personality or her field. Poppy is pink, McGonagall is her red/green plaid, Trelawney is purple, Hooch is yellow, Sprout is green, and Pince is blue. I had a good time making this and doing a fun colorful interpretation. I like the idea of the women of Hogwarts nurturing each other emotionally and physically. I hope you do, too!
