Title: Ginny Weasley: Dragon Slayer
Rating: PG-13 for dragon slaying
Warning: meta, first person, some dragons were harmed
Disclaimer: HP belongs to Rowling, dragons belong to everybody, and the song used toward the end isn’t mine. It’s from Merrie England, by Basil Hood and Edward German. I have no idea how appropriate it is to use it as a quote, but hey, the copyright is up, and I’d’ve treated it like an epigraph, if this was longer.
Summary: Ginny Weasley slays the fuck out of some dragons.

A/N: 1. See above for important note about the song!

2. [personal profile] alaana_fair had this dream about a dragon killing Charlie. And at the time, [personal profile] quinara was asking, “Where’s the dragonfic meme?” and I was all, it’s here!. Then I started thinking about Ginny Weasley and the treatment of her agency in HP and girls and dragons, and then someone asked, Why do you care about Ginny Weasley? This is why. I’ve been wanting to tell you for a year and a half.

Title: The Eighth Tale
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: meta, sex, and sad (don’t say I didn’t warn you)
Summary: Draco Malfoy tries to fix the past, but instead mucks it up some more. For Harry, it all becomes quite clear.
A/N: Hahaha so, [personal profile] snickfic and [profile] shipsharry, if you end up reading this (don’t feel obliged), I bet you can guess what SPN author I was reading when I started this (thus the abuse of parentheticals). I’m so easily influenced.

I wrote this for [personal profile] curiouslyfic’s not-fic-athon. At more than ten thousand words, you might be saying, “That’s a fic!” However, you might also be glad I saved you the 70,000 words of meta, sex, and sad that would have happened had I wrote the “actual” fic.


The Eight Tale

There is a tale between every event that occurs, and a tale between written words. There is a tale whose ending isn’t set, but that tale can’t be told.

It hasn’t happened yet. )

Epilogue: not epilogue compliant
Summary: Malfoy’s all, “Come out of there,” the way you say to a cat who is badly behaved. And Harry’s all like, “No, what, I’m a hermit! And I have a chest-monster! And I am crazy magically powerful!” and Malfoy’s all, “We all have problems, bub.” (thoughtfully) “You are crazy though. I’ll give you that.”
A/N: Well, I finally posted it all. Thank you so, so much to everyone who helped me with this, including [livejournal.com profile] alaana_fair, [livejournal.com profile] kjp_013, [livejournal.com profile] lusiology, [livejournal.com profile] fat_teaspoon, [personal profile] bowdlerized, RR, and most of all, [livejournal.com profile] scabbyfish.

It's been a really long time!) and [personal profile] bowdlerized and a friend, R, have all looked over it and offered various comments. Thanks so much to all of you.

Author's notes: Nunquam Securus is a short fic about how Harry and Draco navigate romance amidst their entwined circle of friends. This fic is the back story about how that circle formed.

Thank you so, so much [personal profile] talekayler for writing this fic, and for signing up for remix, giving me the opportunity to write this story. Thank you to [personal profile] stultiloquentia for her quick beta, to [profile] ravenclown for some points of crit and enthusiasm, and the mods for their patience and kindness. And even though she will never see this, thanks to [personal profile] my_daroga for putting up with me while I wrote this.

Title: Silver Tongues
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] sugareey
Pairing/Threesome: Harry/Draco
Rating: R
Warnings: Power play, language . . . alliteration.
Word count: 2,150
A/N:

This is one of those experiment-y fics that does a lot with language and the way words work. As one reviewer pointed out, and like some of my other more "out there" fics, it gets rather wrapped up in the words so that I'm not sure all the stuff about characters that I wanted to tease out really got . . . teased out. I was trying to access some very real and creepy problems both Harry and Draco might have as a result of Voldemort insinuating so much of himself in both their lives in different ways. Not sure I succeeded, but I confess I am still rather happy with the way the words themselves went.

I wrote this for [livejournal.com profile] hds_beltane ficathon. [livejournal.com profile] stultiloquentia did my awesome beta, for which I thank her profusely. And I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] vaysh11 in particular for having a quote from my fic up on her journal for weeks, when she didn't even know I wrote it! I'm still working on that "coming out about Harry/Draco" I have listed on my user interests, but those of you involved have made it truly fun. So, thank you!

So, I wrote Now The Shining Sun Is Up for [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays. It's a Harry/Draco story about dealing with the long-reaching social and political effects of war.

Although it really needs so much more work, I'm kind of happy with the story. It could've been so much better, really shiny, but as it is it got across the gut of what I really wanted to get across, I think. And that was why I entered the ficathon. You know I hate ficathons and only enter them because I love Lynne and Chrislee. But I've been trying to write H/D for a whole year now, and while I have millions of pieces of things on my comp, I've yet to really spit out one whole thing. For this ficathon I started about five different stories, 30,000 wasted words all told. It was in the last two days I wrote this one, and then the mods of the fest were nice enough to let me send in my second draft (which took another week or so to write, on top of moving) to post. The final draft would've been tighter, with excess talk cut out, and a couple vital moments added--but if I'd've had the time, I wouldn't rewrite this fic, just polish it up a bit. In TKPspeak, that means I'm a bit proud of it.

In other news, it was bizarre being a part of a fest with anonymous gifts, much less in a fandom I'd never participated in. Since no one in H/D fandom knows who I am anyway, I thought it wouldn't make much difference if I was anonymous or not, and that the fest would be a good way to get the story out there without having to wave my arms and say, "look at me!" Makes it weird, though, when people think they know who wrote it. Especially if they think it was [livejournal.com profile] mistful, which was flattering and also weird and also worrisome (i.e. I'm inspired by her writing! But am I "inspired" too much?). At any rate, it was pleasing and surprising the way people responded. It wasn't a mega hit or anything, but I don't really think the unpolished nature of the fic merits that. But there were people with really thoughtful comments who really appreciated what I tried to do with the story, which warms the cockles of my heart. (Not the mussels of my heart, though. Or even muscles; that's so purely clinical.) Since I've never participated in a fest like this before, and since I know no one in the fandom, it was weird to watch the comments trickle in--I kept wondering where they were coming from and who they were. Kind of like when I wrote Oroboros, the commenting on which was a surreal experience completely. In other words, I'm glad I did it, even if I've been stressing pretty much four months over it.

So, all five of you who read H/D, pls to be letting me know what you think, if you're so inclined as to read. I'll be reposting it on IJ in the next few days.

Next up is [livejournal.com profile] anelith's H/D, which I <3 so much I need to stop talking about it and just finish it!
