HAPPY H/D HOLIDAYS, CASSIE_BLACK12!

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! :)

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!

HAPPY H/D HOLIDAYS, ROSIVAN!

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.
