Happy H/D Holidays, okydoky!

Author: bewarethesmirk
Recipient: okydoky
Title: To Ignite
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria, mentions of Ron/Hermione, Lily/random Hufflepuff, and very small bit of AS/S.
Summary: When Harry Potter's marriage reached the breaking point, he no longer cared about what was right, or even what was easy. Draco Malfoy was neither right nor easy - conventionally speaking, at least.
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, epilogue-compliant, pining!Harry. There’s angst, but the ending isn't explicitly angsty. There’s desperate sex, with a dash of rimming and a spot of dirty talk.
Epilogue compliant? It’s epilogue-compliant to the extent that Harry and Ginny have three kids and are married, and that Draco and Astoria are married and have Scorpius. I’m not sure all is well, however. ;-)
Word Count: ~8,000K
Author's Notes: Thank you so, so, so much to NQ and Tara for their endless patience. Thanks to L for her never-ending support. Thanks so much to R and S for the beta. okydoky, I really - desperately, and quite nervously - hope you enjoy this. ♥

Medium: Comic (done in watercolours) and small animation.
Author's Notes: "Ghost Story" by Sting has always struck me as a song that could be read as slash and I've waited for quite a long time to include it in my work. Hope you'll find it suitable, too.. Sorry for the crappy beginnings and endings; I only have Quicktime to do such animations.

A note from the mods on commenting...

Hello, lovely watchers, authors and artists of H/D Holidays.

Sorry for the mod post interrupting the Christmas cheer and awesome fic and art, but some inappropriate behavior has been brought to our attention, and we are not of the opinion that every comment is a valid comment. Sorry if that ruffles feathers.

Comments that merely outline all the problems, particularly grammatical, in a story are NOT constructive or appropriate. Playing editor on stories and posting a laundry list of errors in order to "instruct" and embarrass the writer is uncouth, and not something we will allow. Sorry.

Similarly, snarky, purely negative comments meant to be clever that ultimately hurt the author/artist? Not appropriate. This is an anon gift fest, not your personal reading list, and it IS valid that every piece of fic and art was created for a recipient, with wishes and requests. Just because something does not suit you, doesn't mean it wasn't created to someone else's taste, and that someone did not work hard on it. You don't have to love everything, but comments should always be constructive.

Anonymous accusations of shady behavior, including plagiarism, inappropriate warnings (or lack thereof), etc., are useless left on fics and art. Please address ALL potential issues with the mods, over email. Doing otherwise is just hurtful, and achieves nothing.

We are NOT actively deleting comments, but from this point on, we will be keeping a much closer eye on them, and screening those that are not in good taste. We will engage in discussion with those leaving any comments. We are not censoring constructive criticism, as mentioned. This is something that only applies to a few commenters, but we wanted all involved to know that we are aware of it.

Please play fair and clean, and just ENJOY! We're all here for the same reason, and this year's fest is of truly outstanding quality, and, though biased, we mods truly believe this! There is still some amazing work to come, and we hope everyone will keep reading, looking, reccing and commenting in the weeks to come. But no grinches!

NQ & Tara
