Title: Spontaneous Desires
Author: ???
Gift For: [info]nikkilicious377
Pairing(s): Draco/Hermione, side-pairing Harry/Pansy

Author's notes: Nikki, I loved working on your prompt even though it was driving me crazy at times. :) I hope you enjoy reading the story.

Title: Sempre Catena
Author: [info]catalinacat
Gift For: [info]angelofdreams13
Pairing(s): Draco/Hermione
Summary: There are some enchantments that were meant to be forgotten. And stay that way.
Rating: R
Warnings: none that I can think of
Author's notes: (if any) You asked for "summoning rituals, mental connection/Legillimency-related rituals, or Dark Magic rituals." I kind of combined the "Dark Magic" with "Legillimency" and somehow came up with this! I had lots of fun writing it, so I hope you enjoy it, too!

Happy Traditions, [info]foppet! @ 02:09 am


Title:Sometimes the Old Ways Are the Best

Author: [info]melfinatheblue

Gift For: [info]foppet

Pairing(s):Lucius/Narcissa, Rudolphus/Bellatrix

Summary:Narcissa is desperate to conceive, even if it means participating in a "heathen" ritual.

Rating: hard R

Warnings: violence/disturbing content (animal sacrifice), public sex, and possibly an orgy (depending on how you define orgy).

Author's notes: I took a bit of dramatic license with the Lupercalia, since the ancient authors failed to mention sex-crazed couples. Also, the opinions expressed in this fic are those of the characters, not necessarily the author. I hope you like it!

Happy Traditions to All! @ 02:11 pm


Once again apologies for the lateness of posting. My husband, [info]hawknc gave me the plague. Feel free to blame him.

Title: The Beltane Joust
Author: ???
Gift For: all fest participants!
Pairing(s): Sirius/Severus
Summary: Severus is very upset at Sirius' stunt at the train station. But why? Sirius thinks he has the answer and a way to placate the other man.
Rating: Mature (R-rated)
Warnings: Slash, very slight BDSM (D/s)
Author's notes: This fic is set in September 1996, and I've tried to be as in keeping with canon as I can. Here are the relevant details from the prompt that I used:

Preferred pairing: Severus/Sirius
Wishlist: First time (-ish), humour, D/S
Tradition: Beltane

As one might expect, this is slashy and R-rated. Here are some of my references for the study of Beltane:

‘Bel-fires' or ‘need-fires' had healing properties, and are lit on sundown of April 30th for witches to leap through the flames to ensure protection for the coming year.

Worship is generally directed at the Pagan lingham, the Maypole and symbol of life.

I've expanded the day's festivities to include an Arthurian style tournament. All those long sticks are rather related to the Maypole, in my view. There are traditional sword dances and archery tournaments on Beltane, so I feel that this isn't much of a stretch.

I own none of the characters or things that you recognise here.
