Warning(s): Angst, swearing, minor violence, miniscule bit of explicit het
Epilogue compliant? Umm... epilogue-ambiguous?
Word Count: 24,500
Author's Notes: Sherant gave me a lovely list of prompts and one crucial that almost killed me (see if you can guess which one it is). Here are the ones I attempted to include in the fic: something that explores their canonical hate-obsession with each other and not the physical side - to the end that maybe they never actually do get together, or maybe they never get to/want to take it further than a touch or a kiss, at most; anger, frustration, angstyness, regret, hope; a secret uneasy truce, like when they have to be stuck together they actually can talk a bit and enjoy the company - but would likely never admit it; annual Yule Ball; a fight in the snow; winter coats in Diagon or London.

Sherant – I’m not sure how successful I was at capturing the canonical relationship and I think it’s a bit different than what you had in mind, but I hope you like it. It was a pleasure to write for you. And HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Happy H/D Holidays, celandineb!

Author: accioscar
Recipient: celandineb
Title: No Happy Ending
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, implied Draco/Astoria
Summary: If two people love each other, there can be no happy end to it. But what if one person loves two people?
Rating: NC-17 to be safe
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended.
Warning(s): non-linear, random switching PsOV and tenses (including flagrant abuse of 2nd person), brief infidelity, rimming, implied polyamory, wee bit o’ dirty talk, smidgen of het, angst, bisexual!Harry
Epilogue compliant? I’d say this was epilogue-ambiguous, but the next-gen kids do exist.
Word Count: 4,700 approx
Author's Notes: celandineb, it was a pleasure to write this for you. It was also a complete departure from anything I’ve ever written before, but I took your requests for polyamory and ‘at least one of them to be genuinely bisexual’ and this was the result. If you were to ask me to describe this story I would say, ‘It’s like scattered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, and though some may be missing or incomplete you can still see what the whole picture looks like.’ I can only hope you like what you see.
Major thanks go out to my wonderful beta! *squishes* Any remaining mistakes are mine, not theirs.

Happy H/D Holidays, bewarethesmirk!

Author: _pinkchocolate
Recipient: bewarethesmirk
Title: Out From Under
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/Astoria
Summary: When Draco catches Potter in a compromising position, he reacts in a way only a true Slytherin would.
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): Infidelity, dub-con
Epilogue compliant? No
Word Count: ~17k
Author's Notes: Dear bewarethesmirk, I couldn’t decide between this fic and another one, but nqdonne assured me that secretary!Draco would be more appropriate than unending angst. Hopefully I managed to hit on a few of your requests and avoid your squicks. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season! Huge thanks to my many betas for putting up with me through the tumultuous writing process.
