Title: ...and with persons even worse
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: Someone's killing rentboys in Lower Knockturn, and the case is getting attention from the top. No one at the Ministry wants another Ripper, stalking Knockturn Alley or moving into Muggle London. Harry Potter agrees to go undercover, but can he keep his identity a secret when Draco Malfoy is the rentboy assigned to show him the ropes?

Author's Notes: November Snowflake, your stories have given me so much pleasure over the years; I hope that this gift helps to repay a little of that. Happy H/D Holidays to you and to everyone else playing and reading in this fest! And especially to the mods, who have given us so many gifts over the years, and to my betas, who are a treasure beyond price.

Title: Liar
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria, Ron/Hermione, misc others
Summary: Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy have always preferred the worst of each other; it was too bad they both had to have better halves.
Rating: NC-17/MA+
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended. They're just my playthings of choice :)
Warning(s): infidelity (requested :D), bisexuality, shitloads of UST, denial, lying, angst, D/s, rough sex, hate!sex, guilt, very mild/accidental bloodplay & breathplay, even more angst, and a SPOILER/TRIGGER: [highlight to view] *minor character death; suicide*
Epilogue compliant? Shockingly, yes. In all the worst ways.
Word Count: +/- 50,000
Author's Notes: First and foremost, massive thanks to the mods for giving me the opportunity to pinch-hit in the last Hols, and for their patience as I became a neurotic coffee zombie as the 11th hour drew closer. I would like it to be known that, without my beta S and britpicker-beta combo R (who, by the by, came out of retirement just to do this, since everyone else was booked) following me through gdocs every step of the way, this never would have been ready in time (and any errors you find are mine alone). And finally, a huge kiss for my cheerleaders, for insisting that I really could knock out fifty thousand words in three weeks during the busiest time of the year. You were all fucking amazing, thank you so much for believing in me.

To my dear cerberusia, let me just say: your prompt was close to my heart in so many wonderful ways, I could have cried in happiness. I was absolutely thrilled when I saw your requests, and I hope my translation of your desires is everything you wanted, and then some. Happy H/D Holidays!

So. Tomorrow is the last day. The last day.

Including tonight's midnight post, there are only 5 entries left (I know you 5 folks are feeling anxious - you've not been forgotten!). As per usual, we'll close with final fic and art.

I know everyone has been busy with the holidays and behind on reading, and so we will do the usual two week delay before reveals. There have been a lot of long fics recently as well. In the meantime, please make sure that you have replied to your gift! Even if only to say 'will get to this ASAP' so the author/artist doesn't feel ignored. This is not a prompt fest, it's an exchange fest, and there's nothing worse than putting your blood, sweat, and tears into something specifically for another person who doesn't acknowledge it.

Until tomorrow....
