Author's Notes: Dearest _aurora_sky_, I am a great admirer of your elegant and polished drawings and it has been a great pleasure to write for you for hd_holidays! I hope you enjoy this angsty little piece. I am deeply thankful to my betas, F, S, and W, for their remarkable and speedy help. Without them, this story would be so much less. I am also grateful to the hd_holidays mods for their tireless work and for retaining faith in me. All mistakes are my own.

The final week of posting...

As we enter our final week of posting, just a small note about the schedule...

Friday is the final day, and we'll have posts at midnight, 8am, 3pm, and the closing fic and artwork at 9pm - big day for you guys! (All Eastern standard time, or GMT-5)

My goal is to have the guessing poll up by the end of this coming weekend, and it'll be a bit of a challenge since 1) some people contributed more than one piece, and 2) not all of our pinch-hitters received a gift in return...so you can't merely go by the list of recipients to narrow down your choices! I may decide to be generous and give you a list of all contributing authors/artists, and there might even be some LJ tokens for the person with the most correct guesses.

Reveals will go up on January 16th. Please use the time after the fest ends on Friday to catch up - we haven't had a huge dearth of novella fic this time around, which should make it easier on you lot to devour every last word before we plug in the gifter's name. I hope that when all is said and done, you'll have discovered a new artist or author to squee over - that's what makes all of the hard work for us mods worth it in the end.

So enjoy this final week!

HAPPY H/D HOLIDAYS, REIRA_21!

Author: frayach
Recipient: reira_21
Title: On The Couch
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: It’s a Mind Healer’s worse nightmare to lose a patient to suicide, but Mind Healer Nick Nichols can attest to the fact that a murder/suicide is even worse. If only Dr. Freud had come up with a sure cure for love.
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): This is a fully comprehensive list of warnings (in alphabetical order, nonetheless): anal sex, angst, psychoanalysis, rimming and smoking.
Epilogue compliant? Nope
Word Count: 26,500
Author's Notes: This was a blast to write, Reira. I hope you like reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I used as many of your quirks and kinks and artistic nudges as I could – I think the only thing I couldn’t squeeze in was object penetration (and, yes, the pun is intended). Happy holidays!
