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....

Author: jad
Recipient: cerberusia
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!

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria, past Harry/Draco

Title: Cutting Potions
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: During their 8th year, Harry and Draco find something far better to do than attend Slughorn’s Advanced Potion’s class.
Rating: R
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): Well, if it was a wizard photo, they’d be frotting like mad!
Epilogue compliant? Oh, donthinso.
Artist’s Notes: Dear kayladie, this hit on a few of your likes. (8th year, I like to think Draco’s been crushing on Harry forever, and I definitely believe that Harry’s presence in his current position indicates that he’s not stupid, at all!) I hope you are having a very merry holidays, and that this brightens your day!
