Title: M is for Muggle-born
Rating: PG-13/Teen
Warnings: AU, EWE, Language
Genre: Mystery, Humor, Romance
Summary: The Ministry of Magic had shown itself to be no friend of the Muggle-born or their orphans, but Hermione Granger would never forget. Someone must, for it was far too easy for most to forget.
Word Count: ~19,100
Disclaimer: Harry Potter and the associated characters and settings of J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros, Bloomsbury Publishing, etc., referenced in this story belong to the respective copyright holders. They are being used for fun, not profit.
Author's Notes: While I've strived to keep this relatively canon compliant, there are additions from Hermione's and Severus' perspective which begin in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix that make this AU. JKR's epilogue is completely ignored in this story.
Original Prompt: I took ideas from #1 and #3, then tossed in a brief wave (or rude gesture) at a Ministry marriage law.
1) Hermione is a private eye (think Kinsey Millhone from Sue Grafton’s books). What kind of crime is Hermione investigating? Is Snape a suspect? An Auror? What does he think of Hermione investigating this crime?
3) Hermione volunteers at the Ministry Children's Wish Foundation arranging wishes. Hermione tries to arrange a wish for child with Severus Snape. What is Snape doing now? How does he react to the request?

Title: Burrowing
Author/Artist: Inspire inspired_ideas
Recipient: Lyras lyras for hp_beholder
Rating: Teen / PG-13
Pairings: Arthur Weasley/Molly Weasley
Word Count: ~3,000
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Dealing with the death of a loved one.*.
Summary: Fred's death hits the Weasley family hard.
Author's/Artist's Notes: Lyras provided wonderful prompts and it was hard to choose. In the end, several of her suggestions were used in creating this 'slice of life' featuring Molly and Arthur. While Lyras said that she didn't mind if the angst was piled on to them, I like to think of this as the two of them stepping in it without becoming buried.

Rating: Teen / PG-13
Pairings: Minerva McGonagall / Poppy Pomfrey
Word Count: @2,700
Summary: It takes more than four Stunners to the chest to take down Minerva McGonagall.
Author's Notes: Bits of dialog from JKR's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix were lifted for the making of this story and are presented in bold type. I tried to incorporate the recipient's likes for teacher fic, missing moments from canon, canon re-told with a twist, Minerva McGonagall, and women being awesome in the gift.

Rating: NC-17
Summary: The untimely deaths of two members of the Malfoy family brings change for Lucius and Hermione.
Word Count: @22,500
Warnings/Content: Deceased characters (not main pairing); Epilogue ignored.
Also present are consensual BDSM, minor bits of dubious consent, some vulgar language, and references to punishment, however Hermione is a strong character, who in no way resembles a doormat. The elements covered by the warning are easily spotted in case you'd like to avoid them and simply enjoy the rest of the story which has far more to do with growth than sex.
Disclaimer: Harry Potter and the associated characters and settings of J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros, Bloomsbury Publishing, etc., referenced in this story belong to the respective copyright holders. They are being used for fun, not profit.
Author's/Artist's notes: Thanks to my betas ldymusyc and Tryst for their support and helpful suggestions for making this story better. This was written as a gift with these requested elements as part of the 2011 wizard_love exchange.

Warnings: Nudity (NWS but not particularly graphic either)

18 June 2010 @ 09:27 pm
I love plot, but honestly, I don't really need plot to enjoy erotica. Especially when the erotica is one of the finest examples of BDSM between equal partners engaged in a completely consensual exchange of power. My exchange gift from hp_porninthesun features hot, steamy, and very sexy, dominant Draco, and an empowered, yet submissive, Hermione, both of whom know what they want and go after it. 

Title: Ardent Bonds
Author: ldymusyc  (My prime suspect!)
Recipient: [info]inspired_ideas (Me! Squee!)
Pairing(s): Draco Malfoy/Hermione Granger
Word Count: 16,750 (Yes, that much PWP, but it's not at all repetitive)
Rating: NC17 (Definitely NC17 and warning for BDSM but not that fake non-con stuff)
Warnings: Contains BDSM elements including dominance/submission, bondage, orgasm denial, shibari, toys, verbal control, hair-pulling, and spanking with belt and crop. Plus a massive amount of sex.
Summary: Maybe it was wrong to think about this, maybe it was horrible to even consider, but if Draco Malfoy liked to dominate, she couldn't stop herself from picturing it. Picturing him.

Title: Bedtime Stories
Rating: PG
Pairings: Wilhemina Grubbly-Plank / Aberforth Dumbledore
Medium: Colored pencils with digital corrections
Warnings: None
Summary: Wilhemina thinks Aberforth is a prickly old goat, but he tells the most wickedly amusing bedtime stories.
Author's/Artist's Notes: I don't normally work in colored pencils, but I liked Wilhemina's expression in my preliminary sketch, so I just grabbed my son's pencils and went for it. Since drawing this, I've been working a lot more often in color pencil.

ldymusyc wrote a lovely Hermione and Severus ficlet for me for my birthday. It's wonderfully characterized, so go read and leave her some love.

If you end up wondering about the art Musyc mentioned, it's Anna Shellkova's (Deviant Art's fya-shellkaincredible piece of smokin' hot (NWS) Severus/Hermione art. There's a work safe version which is still very pretty here, if you'd prefer the tame version.

I received the most amazing fic from my hp_beholder mystery author. It's a 10K Ollivander/Muriel piece and it's absolutely exquisite. Even if you're turned off by old people sex, at least read the first 8K or so, which is entirely gen!fic and full of magnificent detail as they get to know each other and Ollivander interacts with the other people in hiding at Muriel's home prior to the Battle of Hogwarts.

Title: An Interesting and Difficult Woman (IJ to comment) | LJ mirror here
Author: featherxquill  (My prime suspect and thank you!)

Title: Murder in the Manor
Author: Inspire inspired_ideas
Written for: angelmischa  as part of the Winter 2008 sshg_exchange
Rating: Teen
Warnings: Um, Ron bashing ... sorry
Summary: A dinner party ends abruptly when the host ends up dead following his soup course and the other guests begin dropping like flies. Will Severus and Hermione be able to solve the case before they become the next untimely victims?
Original Prompt: 1) Non-canon: It’s x, in the library with the candlestick. Hermione and Snape find themselves stuck racing around the castle in a Clue-esque (or Cluedo-esque, if you’re a Brit!) style murder-mystery. Romance and drama ensue. Who killed y? (You may supply x and y, and while it would be a bit pointless if Hermione or Snape were x, it’s fine to have one of them be y if you’d like!)
Author’s Notes: Thanks to lesemma for the beta. This round of the exchange requested one-shots, so the fic is a bit shorter than I think it needs. I am working on an five chapter expanded version, which will be the one I eventually post to various archives.

The mystery author of my sshg_exchange gift wrote a brilliantly humorous piece featuring many things I love, including strong friendships with Harry and Ron, a stationery fetish, love of tequilla, and reference to a piece of art I like, not to mention a playful Hermione and curious Snape. I wasn't really expecting anyone to pickup the 'Go, Dog. Go' prompt I left, figuring it would be too silly for most people. I'm pleased my author seems to have a fabulous sense of humor.

I've been meaning to do this for week or so, but finally found a bit of time. It's swiped from cloverdew regarding the The Big Read's supposition that the average adult has only read six of the top 100 books on their list.

I've read 62 out of 100. Most of this is due to two things. My mom belonged to a Classics Books Club and had all the Shakespeare, Dickens, Austen, Bronte Sisters, and other classics in our house and I was always a voracious reader. Second, I took Great Books as a High School freshman, which brought in Steinbeck, Huxley and a lot of the 20th century stuff.
