Minerva Fest Day 28 -- "Special Delivery" (Minerva/Sinistra)

Title: Special Delivery
Prompt Author: [info]lokifan
Prompt: The war against Grindelwald is hotting up and Minerva's just left Hogwarts. She's fighting with the others. I'd like to see her being tough and awesome and discovering herself - basically, 'Young Woman in WW2 Gets To Be Brilliant' with bonus magic and lesbianism. :) Don't stress over plottiness.
Rating: G
Characters and/or Pairings: Minerva McGonagall/Aurora Sinistra
Description: Sometimes their WATA (Witches' Air Transport Auxiliary) courier routes overlapped, and they shared the adventure, flying over the English countryside with Top Secret documents in sealed satchels on their broomsticks. When they separated, Aurora always blew Minerva a kiss.
Warnings: None
Disclaimer: This is original art based on fictional characters from the World of Harry Potter, created by J.K.Rowling.
Artist's Notes: The Air Transport Auxiliary was a British civilian service branch that employed many women pilots during the war. The Witches' branch was, of course, Top Secret itself. The uniform is partially Victorian cycling/riding costume and partially 1940s Airwomen of the RAF. Thanks to my chatroom buddies for the inspiration and encouragement on this one.

Minerva Fest Week 3 -- Sum-Up Post

And so Week Three of the [info]minerva_fest comes to a close. Comments have fallen off a bit in recent days, which isn't surprising: your mods all know how RL can interfere with reading. But there are excellent stories here, so if you do read and enjoy them, please drop the authors a quick line.

We have another week of great entries to come before the Guessing Game (November 1-5) and Reveals (November 6). So there's still plenty of Minerva fun to be had.

Here's the Week Three Recap:

Day 15 -- (Oct. 18) -- The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Part I (Minerva/Alastor)

Day 16 -- (Oct. 19) -- The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Part II (Minerva/Alastor)

Day 17 -- (Oct. 20) -- The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Part III (Minerva/Alastor)

Day 18 -- (Oct. 21) -- Walks in the Hills (Minerva/Amelia)

Day 19 -- (Oct. 22) -- Fighting the Good Fight (Minerva, Griselda, Pomona)

Day 20 -- (Oct. 23) -- Gryffindor Courage (Minerva/Severus)

Day 21 -- (Oct. 24) -- Paying a Visit (Minerva/Bill)

The fourth week begins tomorrow...


Minerva Fest Day 21 -- "Paying a Visit" (Minerva/Bill Weasley)

Title: Paying a Visit
Prompt Author: [info]kelly_chambliss
Prompt: ART -- realistic, non-cracky, genuinely hot porn featuring Minerva. With a couple of exceptions, she's usually presented very decorously in art; I'd like to see that change.
Rating: NC-17
Characters and/or Pairings: Minerva/Bill Weasley
Description: Minerva visits her lover in Egypt. Picture done with coloured pencils, scan made more colourful and less bleh with Photoshop.
Warnings: They are having sex (but both the prompt and the rating already kind of implied that, right? ;P)
Disclaimer: If I was JKR, I didn't have to think about how to buy groceries without money in my pocket.
Artist's Notes: Kelly, this is a former student, but definitely not student-aged anymore… I hope this is okay for you and you like my picture a bit. ^^ I always loved Egypt and am really happy to have drawn a picture taking place there. Thank you, Mods, for this fest for our dear Minnie! <3
