Title: Unsung
Author: ???
Gift for: [info]riot_grrrl_ria
Pairing: Ginny/Luna
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~3200
Summary: Ginny is slipping through the cracks in her carefully constructed reality.
Warnings: not epilogue compliant in that Ginny is not with Harry.
Author's notes: First of all, thanks to my beta, who will be credited after the reveal. All characters belong to JKR, &tc; title and quoted lyrics (only a few lines: this is not a songfic) are Vanessa Carlton's. To my giftee: I'm sorry to have this in for you so late, but I hope you enjoy it.

About the traditions you requested and the way I used them: I included Buddhist meditation and moon symbolism, taking the interpretation of the tarot moon card: the Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition (quoted from this page). However, drawing from my own experience with meditation, I used it as an almost customizable tradition, something that's different for everyone, and not necessarily needing to follow strict rules or techniques. They were... Luna- and Ginny-ified to fit the plot, is what I'm trying to say, essentially.

Title: Fire and Ice
Author: [info]jairissa
Gift For: [info]lesyeuxverts00
Pairing(s): Remus/Sirius
Summary: Books are boring enough as it is; sticking poetry in there should be considered cruel and unusual punishment.
Rating: PG
Warnings: Heavy quoting from the works of Robert Frost.
Author's notes: [info]lesyeuxverts00, I tried to incorporate a decent amount of your kinks, although this story is told more sideways than backwards. I hope I have kept the fluff in check, especially considering the AU turn it took at the end. Eternal thanks to A, for beta-ing and everything else.
