If you ever experience an issue with one of the entries on this comm, please do not leave a reply in comments - either send me a PM or email me (taradiane-at-gmail), otherwise I likely won't know about the problem.

I know why you're all here, so let's just cut right to the chase, shall we?

THE ARTCollapse )


THE FICCollapse )

If I've screwed anything up in the usernames/links, please let me know...it happens every damn year no matter how many people check my work beforehand, don't take it personally!

SO...who surprised you? It was interesting to go through the poll results and see how responses varied on stories like Packing the Flat (6 different authors!) and artwork like Slipping Away (5 different artists - even more impressive since art is usually a dead giveaway, haha)...favourite response came from ginger_veela who said that was *so* snegurochka_lee. :D - and yes, it was, because your guess was right. ;-) The artists received the most guesses (easy pickings, eh?), and it was amusing to watch the guesses on the last fic - the mpreg - getting changed from coffeejunkii (c'mon, with that header??) to me (taradiane - hey, I like mpreg, too!) as time went on.

All right, in terms of the new rules, what you read the other day is final as there were no objections to any of it (none that I saw, at least), but I would like to make one addition/clarification (helpfully pointed out by acromantular)... if you are one of those multi-talented folks who can both write and draw, and throw your name into the writer lottery and do not get selected, we would gladly take your art! You would need to tell us that that is your intention, as we won't assume otherwise, but you are more than welcome to change your 'talent' should my trusty excel not spit out your number as a writer.

Lastly, we want new icons! Artists, if you have contributed to the fest before, do we have permission to make icons from your work?

Okay, really really lastly, we close with this:







Until August 2011...

Author: taradiane
Recipient: sassy_cissa
Title: Some Kind of Wonderful
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione (very far in the background), Draco/Astoria (past)
Summary: Harry is adrift without an anchor after the prophecy that shaped the first eighteen years of his life is fulfilled. Restless and bored, and wanting to stop Hermione from nagging him about wasted opportunities, he decides to spend his time volunteering at a Muggle homeless shelter...then along comes Malfoy, with an anchor of his own that he needs help carrying.
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): MPREG (but non-graphic, there is no girly!Draco or birthing through the mouth Hey, I read that in a fic once, I promise!), minor character death (happens offscreen), angst, UST-to-RST, major abuse to all laws of nature and mankind (ain't magic grand?), and some man-on-man mouth-on-bits action. There is also some frank discussion of a dysfunctional sexual relationship between a man and woman, if that bothers you. And, er, also blatant and obvious theft of a scene from Deathly Hallows part one - insincere apologies to Dan and Emma. There is also talk of miscarriage.
Epilogue compliant? A little bit yes, but mostly no. I took what I liked from the epilogue and threw away what didn't suit my story (99.9% of it).
Word Count: ~34,700
Author's Notes: OMGNO MPREG EVERYONE RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! Ahem. The mods have informed me that I have the only MPREG fic this year, so yay for individuality? One of the mods also tells me that you're quite fond of this genre, sassy_cissa, so I hope that I've managed to do it in a way that pleases you. :) If not, your fault for asking for it! I, too, am very particular about the MPREG that I prefer, and admit to shaping that part of the story in this very particular way. I do hope that you aren't the only one to read this because of that warning, because ultimately this is a story about how two people find their way through life - first separate, and then together, and how sharing it can allow 'some kind of wonderful' to shine through the banality of a mundane existence.

*Title shamelessly stolen not from the well-known 1960's tune of the same name, but from the 1980's movie (also of the same name). RIP John Hughes, I ♥ you.

Also, St. Mungo's is a real organisation located in London, and all of the locations are real. I know very little about how they run their organization, but instead took my own experiences of volunteering and inserted them. I mean absolutely no disrespect, but simply used the opportunity to raise awareness of a very real place that does very real hard work on behalf of those in need.

Author: faithwood
Recipient: nicevenn
Title: Bitter Honey, Green Night
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: Sometimes we want to be saved; sometimes we need to grow up.
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): Some angst, a few terrible jokes, too many mysterious plans, too much fermented honey, abuse of the colour green and gratuitous use of the colour orange. Also, I'm afraid I've kidnapped most of Draco's thoughts and I'm holding them for ransom.
Epilogue compliant? Not at all, definitely EWE. Though, some bits of interview canon are included.
Word Count: ~14,200
Author's Notes: Dear nicevenn, I'm afraid this is not as light as your prompts wished it to be. However, I happily respected your love of banter and Auror fics, and your dislike of stupid!Harry, excessive fluff and mushy dialogue. Sorry for making you click on a fic with such a vague title, summary and warnings, but I promise there's nothing scary behind the cut. I'm creating an air of mystery, you see. Thank you so much to [X] for her invaluable input and patience, and to [Y], who can have my firstborn if she wants, thank you for being the world's most wonderful beta. And my eternal gratitude to the awesome mods for being as understanding as they are.

Author: femmequixotic
Recipient: musamihi
Title: As Souls From Bodies Steal
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Harry/Ginny, with appearances by Millicent, Blaise, Hermione, Narcissa and Andromeda
Summary: Hope may be found in the oddest of places, even in the bleakness of winter.
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): suicide of minor character, past non-con/rape
Epilogue compliant? semi-epilogue compliant (very semi)
Word Count: ~41,000 words
Author's Notes: Many huge thanks to the mods for their infinite, infinite patience with me, and great love to my betas J, W, N and C for their gracious help and brilliant suggestions. Also, I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to N, in particular, without whom this story could neither have been dragged across the finish line nor written at all, and to W who gave me the title. (And a tip of the hat to John Donne, from whence said title comes.) Happy holidays, musamihi!

Artist: reira_21
Recipient: megyal
Title: Your hair is bare live wire
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: They needed a hollow.
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): Tongue, nudity.
Epilogue compliant? Not really.
Artist's Notes: Dear megyal, I'm sorry this fanart turned out much more surreal than I originally intended. I'm not a poetry expert, so I used lyrics from the song On the bus mall by The Decemberist, which is very poetic in my opinion. Oh, and Draco is taller than Harry. :) Dear viewers, don't worry if you don't understand what's going on. This fanart is not about a story, it's about a bond between Harry and Draco that's never going to be broken.

Author: blamebrampton
Recipient: calembours
Title: Of Hoof Picks, Centaurs, and Flight
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, previous brief Harry/Justin Finch-Fletchley, attempted Draco/Oliver Wood, actual Oliver Wood/adoring masses (offscreen), other canon pairings
Summary: Harry has promised that he will not do anything to upset the new head of Magical Creatures. Even if it is Draco Malfoy. When three centaur foals appear in Cumbria, far from the Forbidden Forest and all too close to Muggles, Harry’s promise is thoroughly tested. To say nothing of his equestrian skills.
Rating: Nothing to scare the horses
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): None
Epilogue compliant? No for Harry and Draco, yes for most other characters.
Word Count: A bit over 21,000
Author's Notes: Dear rosivan, you gave such an excellent list of prompts that you really deserved someone who would read through them and deliver something absolutely perfect and spot-on. Tragically, what you received was me, and I read that you wanted humour, the Ministry and a gay bar and then this happened. The good news is that you can easily pretend that due to tragic weather conditions you have no internet connection now or at any time in the future if you finish this and think: ‘But all I wanted was Parseltongue!! Why do the Fates deny me?!’ Fingers crossed that was not the dream that has sustained you through this bleak winter. Many thanks to my fabulous betas and the lovely mods! All remaining mistakes are my own work.

Author: dysonrules
Recipient: rurounihime
Title: Decoy Dilemma
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Albus Severus/Scorpius
Summary: Auror Potter and Counsellor Malfoy return to Hogwarts in order to protect their children from a man who has vowed revenge. Of course, it's quite a lot more complicated than that.
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): Can't think of a thing.
Epilogue compliant? YES!
Word Count: ~38,000
Author's Notes: I hope you like this rurounihime! I managed to put quite a lot of your suggestions into the story and I hope you like the way I had Harry and Draco return to Hogwarts. I'm pretty sure it's never been done this way before. Happy H/D Holidays!

Author: bryoneybrynn
Recipient: cassie_black12
Title:: Said and Unsaid (or, The Value of Knowing When to Stop Talking)
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Summary: When the Interrogator asked if he had anything to say on his own behalf, Draco shook his head, his lips pressed tight in a thin line. There was nothing to say that wouldn’t sound like an excuse.
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warnings: Flangsty, eight-year fic with no sex – don’t say you weren’t warned. ;)
Epilogue compliant? Nope!
Word Count: ~15K
Author's Notes: A huge thank you to my amazing beta team, B,M, and S, who went above and beyond, as always. Many thanks to C and T as well. Cassie, I was really excited to write for you. I hope you like this fic. I saw the phrase “post-war healing fic” in your sign-up and got all happy. I tried to fulfill some of your other preferences, too. I hope I succeeded. Also, it was brit-picked but then I played with it. Any atrocious Americanisms are entirely my fault.

Happy holidays to all! :)
