Rating: NC-17
Art Medium: Photoshop CS2
Pairing(s): Snape/Harry, background Harry/Ginny, mentions of Hermione/Ron
Disclaimer: All Harry Potter characters herein are the property of J.K. Rowling and Bloomsbury/Scholastic. No copyright infringement is intended. All characters engaging in sexual activity are *18* years or older.

Warnings: infidelity, mentions of het sex, dubious consent, mostly epilogue compliant
Word Count: ~4,500
Author's Notes: I took several of your suggestions here, and tried to roll them together in my first attempt at experimental fic. I'll hope you'll forgive me if it's not what you're used to, but I had quite a lot of fun writing it! I hope you'll also forgive my use of switching names, though I tried to keep it minimal. Not switching at *all* went against everything I was taught in school, but most of the switching here has to do with who's speaking and perspective and internal struggles, so I hope you'll forgive me that. I also MUST thank my beta, 'P', forr without her the smut would be nearly non-existent.
Artist's Notes: I hope the illustration keeps the surreal feeling from the story. I don't often give art and fic together, but I was so pleased with this story I couldn't resist illustrating it, too!

Harry Potter lives an idyllic, happy-ever-after life... )

Warnings: dub-con, orgasm denial, toys, D/s, bdsm, mind play, overuse of italics
Word Count: 2,792
Author's Notes: This fic is undoubtedly one of the hardest ones for me to write. No matter how I tried to lighten it, my mind was fixated on the poem the fic spun off of, and as a result ended up a bit dark. Hopefully it's still enjoyable to you; I tried to work in as many of your kinks as possible. And thanks to the Mods for betaing last minute when my usual betas went AWOL!




Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

--Robert Frost

Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Snape/Harry
Warnings: creature!fic, AU, bad poetry, corny title
Disclaimer: Harry, Hermione, and Ron in this fic have completed their final year at Hogwarts and are of age. Anime-style art has a tendency to make people appear younger, so I wanted to include the disclaimer. Also, the characters aren't mine and I'm making no money from them, I just like to play in the sandbox JK made.
Summary: It isn't enough that Harry is the Boy Who Lived, he also has to be the Boy Who Grew Wings.

Author's Notes:I'd never written creaturefic before, so a prompt asking for wings - well, pardon the idiom, but it really let my imagination take wing, as it were.... *snerk*

Drabble: Snow Angel - PG13

Title: Snow Angel
Characters: Harry, Draco
Rating: PG13 for blood and violence
Word Count: 500



The fresh-fallen snow is a cold austere blanket over these grounds. It makes Hogwarts seem long-abandoned, though in truth only a few years have gone by since the war against Voldemort and his demise – and the final closing of Hogwarts. It is just a hollowed-out shell; only an army of ghosts and bad memories walk those desecrated halls now.

It's the perfect place for retribution – and redemption.

He comes to him there, barefoot, clad in only his Slytherin robes, his skin pale and his cheeks wind scoured into bright roses. His eyes – sharp shards of rainy skies – are full of shadows, fear, uncertainty. But still, he comes. Still he drops his robe and stands in the snow naked in front of Harry, nearly as pale as the landscape.

Once he would have said Draco's heart was colder than the snow – but he knows better now.

It only takes an hour for his retribution to be cut into the blond's skin, for the failures and sins to be catalogued in blood. The fresh blood against the cold flesh is vivid, richer and darker than the blood of innocents, tainted. He uses a small, sharp blade; it makes the retribution personal. It drives the lesson home.

Draco never whimpers, never twitchs. The cold is a balm; he will feel the burning pain later. It is part of the healing process; nor will he speed the healing with spells or potions. He knows what is necessary and he will obey. He lies spread on the snow, arms flung wide, streaming with crimson - a fallen snow angel, marked and punished.

Later there will be more retribution – but not too much, now. Such a fine line to walk – he doesn't want Draco broken, he wants him shattered. So much more to come. But for now, there will be kindness – and the subsequent retribution will be all the more harsh for it.

“Get dressed.”

Clumsily Draco stands, numb; he knows what is expected of him. Silently he drapes the robe back over his lacerated body; the cloak will freeze to his wounds on the walk back. Tenderly, Harry touches the blond's face, strokes his cold cheek with a warm, bloody hand. “The blood sains you,” he told him earnestly, seriously. “Each time a little more.” The blond nods his head. Harry wonders what he thinks, if he really believes him – or if he understands -

- understands that the retribution will never really end. But it doesn't matter, because in the end, he always comes, and always bleeds, and neither of them ever heal.

Draco leaves first, as always; walking home the long way. His feet will be all but frozen and will need medical care. Harry allows that, so he can walk humbly to his next punishment. But not for long.

The wind is cold, cutting sideways and toying with Harry's cloak as he walks to the edge of the grounds to apparate. Cold – but not as cold as Draco.

And never as cold as Harry.

Drabble: The Potion

Drabble: The Potion
Characters: Snape, Lupin, Neville
Warnings: Mention of character death (not canon)
Disclaimer: Not mine

Drabble challenge was "It is a burden he should never have had to bear."



The round cheeks had been prematurely honed down into a square, strong face - but not strong enough. Blue-purple smudges showed like livid bruises underneath his eyes; new pink scars ran like lines of a map across his face. Thankfully, he slept, aided by a dreamless sleep potion. In spite of the potency of the brew, his eyes still moved rapidly beneath closed lids, and occasionally he flinched in his sleep, brow drawing tightly as if pained.

Lupin sat in a chair next to the boy's bed, brushed a gentle hand across his forehead, looking little better himself; his hair showed far more grey, his cheeks more gaunt than they had ever been. "How long do you think it will be before he sleeps without dreaming about it?"

Severus sat propped up in a bed across the room; he'd come out worse off physically, having lost an arm and an ear in an explosion, nearly losing his leg as well; he was now trying to painstakingly regrow the arm. His voice was gravelly and raw, an after-effect of inhaling smoke and soot - and screaming. "Some things - never leave your memory," he said. He let his eyes rest on the prone figure next to Lupin. "Betrayal. First loves. First loved one to die." He coughed, looked away. "First death - first kill."

The silence was palpable between them; Lupin broke it first, smoothing the sheets down. "No student should ever be forced to kill someone." He swallowed hard, continued hoarsely, "Much less a student, a friend. Much less - "

Snape's face twisted with understanding; eyes reflected memories too bitter to recall. He, too, had killed a trusted friend. "It was necessary. Potter had broken under the cruciatus - he was casting it on students - and Longbottom knew all too well what that could do to a person."

"Necessary - yes. But it's still a burden he should never have had to bear. It should have been one of us."

A long silence passed, broken only by Neville's restlessness; Lupin soothed him back to stillness. "Irony, a werewolf soothing a hero," he said, bleakly. He slumped back in his chair, raked a shaking hand through his hair - too long, but who'd had time for haircuts? and gazed at Severus. "Can you make the potion?"

"Can you give it to him?" Snape countered. "Knowing the consequences?"

Lupin prevaricated. "Could you?"

The potions master didn't look away. "Knowing what I know? Yes." The certainty was shadowed with unforgotten pain.

Neville flinched, flung one arm up, cried out in his sleep. Lupin soothed him again, until silence filled the infirmary once more. For a long time he sat holding Neville's hand, murmuring words of comfort, the ticking clock loud in the room.

"Shall I brew the potion?" Words, choices, smoky and hoarse and ambiguous.

Lupin inhaled, held it, exhaled, waited a heartbeat. Then, decided, looking again at Longbottom.

"Yes. Brew the potion, Severus. I will....give it to him."
