swissmarg: Mrs Hudson (Molly)
This is the result of a woeful tale of procrastination, writer's block, overstretching, and eventually perseverance: two versions of the same story. The shorter one is all I managed to get done in time for the [livejournal.com profile] holmestice exchange. The longer one is the story I originally set out to write, finally completed mere hours before the absolute deadline I set myself of December 31st. I don't know if one is better than the other; the shorter one is fluffier but has several incomplete arcs. The longer one is angstier and might meander a bit but they both get to the same point in the end. In any event, I am extremely grateful to the Holmestice mods for their patience and generosity with me, and to [livejournal.com profile] kinkajou for the prompts which seemed to have been custom picked for my particular likes.

Author's Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] hp_spring_fling 2011. You can also find it posted over there. The title is from The Flood by Take That. The requester's prompts were: Happy ends, new love, not yet established relationships, fluff, humor, bantering, well written smut, One Hyde Park, a diamond tiara, and the lyrics from The Flood by Take That. I didn't get any smut in, and I took a bit of liberty with the diamond tiara. ;) Beta reader: En En Chan from PI.

Author's Note: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] harry_holidays 2011 exchange. The original recipient dropped out, so it was presented to the community. You can find it posted over there as well. This was written for Harry Holidays 2010 as a gift to the community, since the original recipient dropped out. One of the original recipient's requests was "based on a film", so the plot is drawn from the 2005 movie "Just Like Heaven" with Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo. Beta read by catcachoo on PI.

Epilogue and Sound Track

The [livejournal.com profile] hp_ssc_fest has wrapped up for the year with its master list. 'SSC' stands for 'Safe, Sane, Consensual'. This is a community that promotes 'a positive, loving, and healthy expression of BDSM', where 'the compound acronym, BDSM, is derived from the terms bondage and discipline (B&D, B/D, or BD), dominance and submission (D&s, D/s, or Ds), sadism and masochism (S&M, S/M, or SM)'. (Definition from Wikipedia.) Even if you are not 'into' that sort of thing, I encourage you to check out the fics. There are some very mild versions depicted and some really good fics.

And now on to the stats! )

[livejournal.com profile] snapelyholidays has posted their list of participants and pledges for their upcoming fest. I am not participating, and I wouldn't normally pimp this fest otherwise, but I am intrigued by some of the pledges and looking forward to seeing how the entries pan out. I'm also trying to figure out what a fic would need to generate the largest donation. My suggestion:

Title: Sometimes That's What It Takes
Author: [livejournal.com profile] swissmarg 
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Word count: 21,500
Summary: Hermione despairs of Snape ever wanting her for anything more than running his errands. Until his unhinged physical therapist hits her with an untraceable curse and she ends up literally on cloud nine.
Original Prompt: 3) Hermione (or you can make it Snape if you wish!) is stuck on a cloud. I don't know why she can't Apparate elsewhere. Others can go visit her, but she can't come down. Ron and Harry enlist Snape to get her back on solid ground. I would love a slightly exhibitionist sex scene on the cloud! :D
Author's Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] opaljade on the [livejournal.com profile] sshg_exchange 2010. Unfortunately, there is no sex scene. :( A great big thank you to Tevildo from Perfect Imagination for Britpicking, canon corrections, and beta reading above and beyond the call of duty, and for making this so much better than it otherwise would have been!

Although I didn't participate in the [livejournal.com profile] dgficexchange, I enjoy making these stats lists. So here's another one for the archives. The Master List for the 2010 exchange, including the winners, is posted here.

I had so much fun making the stats and lists from [livejournal.com profile] hp_rarities , I decided to do it for [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen as well. Yes, I'm a nerd. You know you love it. The master list is here.

And here we go... )

This was written for me on the [livejournal.com profile] sshg_exchange and it is a winner. If you are a fan of either vampire!fic, SS/HG, creature!fic, AU, or at least are not put off by any of the same, then clear your calendar for the next hour or so and settle in for this treat. It's just shy of 30,000 words and is a real page-turner. Don't be put off by the mention of Twilight or marriage law in the prompts, neither of them come into play at all, or at least not in the literal sense. They were more of a jumping-off point for the author to let their imagination run free.

Title: Blood Sex Love Magic
Author: Temporarily Disillusioned
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: none
Summary: Snape has to marry to save his life. Who can help?

Original Prompt: SwissMiss gave three great prompts and I was so inspired that I combined two of them. I was at a disadvantage in that I haven't read any Twilight books or seen the movies, but I hope I am allowed some artistic licence!

1. Marriage law twist. Snape is the one who has to get married (make up a reason why) and decides he absolutely must have Hermione. She is not entirely willing. Can be canon-compliant or AU from any point.
3. Twilight-similar scenario: Snape is a vampire, but is hiding it so that he can stay and teach at Hogwarts. When Hermione reaches the age of maturity, her scent becomes irresistible to him. How will he react?

Don't forget to review to show the author your appreciation!
