Master List of Elizabeth Culmer's Fanfiction: Harry Potter

Organization: This list is organized first by associated story cycles and then by date. Word counts and writing dates are approximations.

Content/Warning Policy: 1) I am not consistent about warnings! I use them when I remember, for a few relatively broad categories of potentially problematic content, but if something is off-page, non-explicit, or generally backgrounded, I probably won't think to note it in the metadata. 2) The things I try to warn for are explicit sex, rape, murder, torture, cannibalism, incest, depression/suicide, familial dysfunction, and occasionally also societal dysfunction (aka dystopia). Sometimes I just slap a general content warning on all my fic for a given fandom and don't label each individual fic. I also don't generally warn for violence, unless the violence in a fic is dramatically out-of-step with the violence in its source canon. 3) I don't use any content rating system unless I'm posting to a site or community that requires or encourages ratings, because I find movie-style ratings counter-intuitive when applied to written fiction, and not particularly useful for anything other than denoting the presence of explicit sex, which I already note in the metadata.

Quality Rating System: I've marked my favorite stories with asterisks, on a scale of 1 to 4. The more asterisks, the more I like the story. This doesn't necessarily mean that stories without asterisks are bad, just that I don't like them as much. Also, I am not claiming to be an arbiter of taste; you may love stories I dislike, and vice versa. I am just providing a heads-up about the ones that I think are best written and/or most interesting.

Notes: To be honest, there are some Harry Potter stories that I wish, in retrospect, I hadn't written... or at least had written differently. "Wearing Thin," for example, is a good idea hobbled by bad writing. And I think I was loopy on NyQuil or sleep deprivation when I wrote "Better Left Unseen," though not even that excuses the massive OOC. But we learn by doing and I have yet to hate any of my stories, so I suppose I'm doing well overall.

All stories are book canon only. This is because I never consider filmizations canon. They're just somebody else's vaguely AU retelling of the true story. (Well, and I also haven't seen any of the HP movies beyond PoA, but that's mostly because I didn't feel any need to; see above in re: somebody else's vaguely AU retelling. *wry*)

Where To Read: As always, if an AO3 version exists, it is definitive. FF.net versions are definitive in the absence of an AO3 version. FA versions are definitive in the absence of an ff.net version. Journal versions are the equivalent of beta drafts, though the shorter and/or fragmentary works may never be posted anywhere else.


The "Secrets" sequence

I call these stories a sequence because they all assume "Secrets," "Shame," and "In Light of Later Events" as their background, but they're not a series and in some cases may be mutually contradictory. The main continuity threads are the OCs and minor canon characters I used for "Secrets," because it's easier to reuse them than to keep reinventing the wheel.

***Secrets: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 155,000 words, May 2002-July 2013. CoS according to Ginny. Nobody noticed anything wrong for an entire year -- how did she slip so far from her family and friends? Angst and betrayal, but also mysteries, jokes, an enchanted suit of armor, and a guaranteed happy ending. Clinical depression, hints of suicidal ideation, possession, emotionally abusive relationship.

"Secrets" is the anchor for this sequence. It's the longest story, it's the base the others build on, and it's the one I care most about. It contains a lot of original characters, since I needed to give Ginny classmates. It also contains some not quite fanon-standard interpretations of the diary and Ginny's possession. This is mostly because writing about a character with no agency -- no attempt or ability to make meaningful choices -- strikes me as both boring and degrading to the character in question, but it's also because I started writing "Secrets" before OotP was published, so I didn't know how JKR was going to develop Ginny, nor how she was going to explain the mechanics of possession.

"Secrets" is 15 chapters and an epilogue, all complete and posted as of July 27, 2013. Victory is mine!!!

*The Dragon Debacle: WIP, 2,100 words so far, started June 2004. What were Apple and Daphne Rumluck up to the summer before they met Ginny on the Hogwarts Express? Guest starring Charlie Weasley, a lot of dragons, and unexpected Horklumps. (Ridiculously self-indulgent.) On hiatus.

A Problem Like Ginevra: (AO3 version) 2,125 words, Oct. 2014. One week after Dumbledore is removed as Headmaster, Minerva McGonagall, Pomona Sprout, and Rolanda Hooch take an evening off to escape the pressure of their jobs, but end up bringing their worries with them. Sidestory, set during chapter 12 of Secrets. (This began as an unfinished fragment in 2003/2004, which I unexpectedly finished in a fit of inspiration ten years later.)

I intended to write a third sidestory, "Playing at Life," which dealt with Xanthe Delaflor's first week at Hogwarts and her acclimation to Hufflepuff, but it was based on an early, faulty characterization and I never got around to fixing or finishing it. I also never posted the existing fragments and I probably never will, until and unless I create a revised and completed version.

Thirty Things About Ginny Weasley: (AO3 version) 1,575 words, Oct. 2005-Jan. 2006. Exactly what the title says.

**In Light of Later Events: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 575 words, May 2004. When Ginny was seven years old, her mother finally got around to explaining exactly who this You-Know-Who person was. Humor or foreshadowing, depending which way you squint. [15-minute fic]

Shame: (AO3 version) 725 words, June 2004. Ron learns what poverty means. Monologue and character study. [15-minute fic]

Luxuries: (AO3 version) 400 words, July 2004. Ginny hates being poor, and she can't always make herself be patient. [15-minute fic]

*Research Materials: (AO3 version) 325 words, March 2005. Ginny and Apple discuss Muggle fairy-tales and their application to both Voldemort and Snape. Cute and silly. [15-minute fic]

*Tentacle Porn: (AO3 version; FA version) 300 words, Nov. 2003-May 2004. Ginny and Hermione talk about Herbology. Yes, really. Extremely silly, mostly harmless. Discussion of tentacle porn.

**Sir Ron and the Green Knight: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 7,075 words, June 2004. A faux Arthurian epic, as told by the Lady Hermione le Fay. Danger! Seduction! Men hacking at each other with overly sharp pointy objects! A short dissertation on the idiocies of the feudal system! And true love! (Well, maybe not the last one.)

Alternate summary: In an AU version of HBP, Hermione helps Ginny's friend Apple with an assignment for Muggle Studies... or so she thinks. A mostly lighthearted fusion with Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

Minor Arcana: (AO3 version) 1,225 words, April 2004. Queenie Greengrass makes a Tarot deck.

Means to an End: (AO3 version) 625 words, Oct. 2004. Queenie Greengrass escapes the war. [15-minute fic]


The "Five Years" sequence

These are a side annex to the "Secrets" sequence. Actually, "Five Years" predates "Secrets" and contains Susan Ward's first appearance, and I worked out some details about Ginny's possession in "Get There" before I reached the relevant points in "Secrets," but I consider this duology a separate series because it's shipfic instead of gen, and because the interpretation of the climax of CoS -- the Chamber and the aftermath in Professor McGonagall's office -- is slightly different from what I ended up using in "Secrets."

The "Five Years" duology began pre-OotP and is now AU. Assume that Umbridge choked on a fishbone in May 1995, so nobody sent dementors after Harry and Dudley. Therefore, Harry never got to Grimmauld Place and Ginny didn't see him over the summer.

*Five Years Is an Awful Lot of Later: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 1,500 words, April 2002. In autumn of her fourth year at Hogwarts, Ginny's friend pushes her to ask Harry on a date to Hogsmeade. Good clean fun, a wee bit of angst, and an AU with no Umbridge. (This is the first piece of fanfiction I ever wrote.)

**First You Have to Get There: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 15,000 words, July 2002-Feb. 2005. Sequel to Five Years Is an Awful Lot of Later. After much stalling, Ginny goes on a date to Hogsmeade with Harry. Fifth year AU, fluffy, mild teenage angst. (This is probably the most understated Harry/Ginny fic you're ever going to run across. *grin*)


"Strange Likenesses"

"Strange Likenesses" is yet another iteration of my fascination with Tom Riddle. While I'm bored by the product of his fall (i.e., Voldemort) the process behind that descent, and a teenager with a sociopathic mindset, seem to be pretty near bulletproof story kinks for me. I have yet to figure out why. I just keep writing Tom.

Harry does well for himself in this story, too. :-)

*Strange Likenesses: (ff.net version; FA version) WIP, 15,000 words so far, started Sept. 2004. What if the newly-disembodied Voldemort had noticed his link to Harry? A dark AU. Possession, dubious ethics, sociopathy.

I only gave this story one asterisk because it's a WIP and I'm not completely sure where it's going. I won't know how to rate it overall until I'm done.


The "Restoration" sequence

"Restoration" is a rambling, piecemeal, non-linear look at post-war wizarding Britain. It began as a set of loosely connected ficlets, which I later jammed together and attempted to link thematically. "Paint the Town" was an unexpected sequel, born from some unintentional subtext near the end of the first story, which [livejournal.com profile] lasultrix pointed out to me, and from my desire to try writing a serious femslash story. Together, the two stories explore how Harry's generation might deal with the aftermath of a magical war.

Note: When I say "post-traumatic stress," I do not mean "post-traumatic stress disorder," which is a very specific term. I just mean that traumatic experiences, such as war, can cause emotional and psychological fallout for years, and people's coping methods are often maladaptive to some degree. If I meant PTSD, I would say PTSD.

**Restoration: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 7,000 words, Aug. 2004-Oct. 2004. What happens when the fighting ends? How do you pick up the loose threads of your life and weave them back together? A multi-character post-war scenario, almost completely gen. Not HBP or DH compliant. Implied torture, offscreen war deaths, post-traumatic stress. Gen. [Contains two 15-minute fics]

****Paint the Town: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 18,000 words, Nov. 2004-Feb. 2005. "You look like someone transfigured you into piano wire and went twang," Ginny said. "You need to unwind, so we're going clubbing." Then things got weird. Post-war, femslash, slash, het, threesomes, and alcohol. Moderately explicit sex, implied post-traumatic stress, light bondage, still not HBP or DH compliant. Pairings include Hermione/Ginny, Harry/Luna/Draco, offscreen Ron/Padma, past Ginny/various men, past Hermione/Ron, implied past Hermione/Harry, implied past Luna/Ginny attraction, and implied past dysfunctional Ginny/Tom.


"Fixation, and Other Stories"

Depending on how you squint, "Fixation" is either one long story with a ridiculously intricate structure, or a collection of 32 smaller stories, all some flavor of Ginny/Harry/Draco. I wrote the component fics as a set of theme responses for [livejournal.com profile] thirtyforthree, using prompt set #1. At first, I had no intention of letting any of the stories, drabbles, or character study vignettes interlock into anything like a unified story or timeline. Except then some of them did.

"Fixation, and Other Stories" is arranged in a pattern of alternating chapters. The odd-numbered ones contain two fics each and are all part of a single timeline -- "Fixation" -- while the even-numbered chapters -- the "Other Stories" part of the title -- contain three fics each and have sod-all to do with each other. The only consistent inter-chapter link is that they all deal with the same three people: Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, and Draco Malfoy. (Each even-numbered chapter does, however, have an internal thematic link, like 'dystopian future' or 'crack AU.')

Basically, I was trying things out to see if they would fly or crash. Some flew. Others I'm still not sure about.

**Fixation, and Other Stories: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 28,000 words, Nov. 2005-April 2007. Ginny/Harry/Draco, in various styles, tones, moods, and worlds. Experimental. Moderately explicit sex, implied torture, death, aliens-make-them-do-it, consensual murder/assisted suicide, dissolution of social norms in wartime, familial strife. (Also humor, princesses and dragons, vampires and vampire hunters, kittens and pillows, and other forms of utter crack.)

Blood Is Thinner: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 1,200 words, Jan. 2007. A sidestory to the main "Fixation" story thread, describing the Malfoy family's reaction to Draco's relationship with Harry and Ginny. This leads directly into Domesticity, aka part 1 of chapter IX: Fixation, V. Extreme familial dysfunction, implied possibility of mind control, derogatory discussion of various people's sexual practices. [Request!fic for [livejournal.com profile] askerian]


Lydia Winters

Lydia is an OC Muggle-born witch who works as an Auror for the Federal Bureau of Magical Investigations -- the American wizarding community's equivalent of the FBI. I originally intended to use her in a novel that would explain my ideas about the American magical education system, and also to send her to England after Voldemort's resurrection, but I never got around to that and most likely never will.

Reflections of an American Auror: 600 words, Nov. 2003. Lydia talks about the war. [15-minute fic]

Theories of Magic: 450 words, Feb. 2004. Lydia reflects on the differences between sailing and flying, and the difficulty of living in two worlds. [15-minute fic]


Hogwarts during DH

Three small ficlets dealing with the half of the story we didn't see during Deathly Hallows.

Sauce for the Goose: (AO3 version) 825 words, May 2009. Ginny let Harry go for a reason. But in her first days back at Hogwarts, she's having trouble remembering what that was, and her new status as a hostage isn't helping. H/G. [15-minute fic]

*A Certain Point of View: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 550 words, Oct. 2009. Barely one week into the school year, and things were already spiraling out of control. Snape and the Carrows, during DH. Prompt: Something that happened elsewhere (e.g. Hogwarts) while Harry, Ron and Hermione were out Horcrux-hunting. Implied offscreen torture and attempted murder of a minor. [Request!fic for [livejournal.com profile] alchymie]

Don't Get Caught: (AO3 version) 275 words, March 2016. Professor McGonagall visits Ginny in the infirmary, after an 'accident' one week into her sixth year. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] wistfulmemory]


Everything else

This section is arranged (roughly) by date. It includes everything up to and including the kitchen sink -- dark stories, light stories, serious stories, funny stories, gen, het, slash, femslash, threesomes, short fic, long fic, remixes, weird experimental stuff, and crack.


**Lies: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 1,575 words, Oct. 2003 (revised Jan. 2006). After OotP, Ginny thinks about Tom, Harry, desire, fear, and the nature of truth. At what point do illusion and reality meet? Downbeat monologue, not necessarily compliant with HBP. Clinical depression.

Eden: (AO3 version) 250 words, Nov. 2003. Inside every person, something is broken. Downbeat pretentious musing on emotional trauma, via the Trio. (I later expanded Hermione's and Ron's sections into Fire and Shame, respectively.) [15-minute fic]

*Parseltongue: (AO3 version; removed by ff.net; FA version) 800 words, Nov. 2003. A dark room. A man. A woman. Listen to the hiss as it slides through the air, like chilled silk caressing your skin. Moderately explicit sex, animals used as sex toys. (An experiment with the border between kink and squick, pairing deliberately unspecified.)

Seeds: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 425 words, Nov. 2003. A Death Eater meets an Auror in a forest. Harry and Draco, gen or pre-slash depending on how you squint. Rendered AU. [15-minute fic]

("Seeds" was remixed by [livejournal.com profile] nekare in RemixRedux 4, as Lesson Number Two (The Open My Eyes Remix), which is significantly longer than the original story.)



Follow the Leader: (AO3 version) 400 words, Feb. 2004. Ron wonders when Hermione stole control of this friendship out from under him. Fluffy gen, though you can read it as pre-R/Hr if you want. Rendered AU. [15-minute fic]

Aftershocks: (AO3 version) 150 words, Feb. 2004. Hatred, at least, has been honest. Harry, post-OotP, darkish character study. [15-minute fic]

***Family: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 600 words, March 2004. There are things Petunia doesn't think about. Offscreen character death, familial dysfunction. [15-minute fic]

The Only Game in Town: (AO3 version) 325 words, March 2004. Hermione and Ron treat the world as if it's fundamentally fair, as if there are rules to play by and a goal to win. Harry isn't playing games anymore. Post-OotP, darkish and unreliable. [15-minute fic]

Going Inside: (AO3 version) 375 words, March 2004. There's an art to being oblivious, a certain amount of effort needed to let yourself be free of others' opinions. Luna Lovegood, character study. [15-minute fic]

Mice and Men: (AO3 version) 325 words, April 2004. Once upon a time, Tom Riddle and Alastor Moody made plans for the future. Rendered AU by HBP. [15-minute fic]

("Mice and Men" was remixed by [livejournal.com profile] ishafel in RemixRedux 7, as Mice and Men (The Best Laid Plans Remix), which deals with all the things Tom Riddle tried and failed to become.)

Trust: (AO3 version) 675 words, April 2004. After PoA, Peter Pettigrew reflects on the chain of events that led him to his present situation. Monologue, speculative characterization since rendered AU. Companion to Rats and Ships. [15-minute fic]

*Wearing Thin: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 4,225 words, Nov. 2003-April 2004. How much equality is possible in a relationship? How far can reciprocity go, particularly between people in different worlds? Bill Weasley and his Muggle lover deal with those questions during the second war. Slash, downbeat. Moderately explicit sex. Rendered AU by HBP. (This story was inspired by a dream about Rupert Giles and Indiana Jones having sex in a library. Somewhere along the line, it also became a discussion of the obsession with penetrative sex I saw in slash stories at that time. I like the story idea very much; I just wish I'd been able to clothe it in better words.)

Theories of Attraction: 1,700 words, May 2004. Why I'm unlikely to write Harry/Snape. Technically an essay, but it began as an attempt to write a story, so I'm including it in my fiction list for the sake of completeness.

*On Being The Girl: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 500 words, May 2004. Some days it seems as though everyone in the wizarding world is obsessed by the fact that she has two X chromosomes. It drives Hermione mad. [15-minute fic]

Blind Spots: (AO3 version) 500 words, June 2004. "He's so much like James, I said the first time we disagreed; this must be a mistake. But it wasn't." Sirius monologue, set sometime during OotP. [15-minute fic]

*Curses: (AO3 version) 850 words, June 2004. Her name is Alianora Vandevelde, and everyone loves her. An inadvertent Mary-Sue tells her story. Darker than you might think. Implicit discussion of the ethics of mind control. [15-minute fic]

Rats and Ships: (AO3 version) 475 words, Sept. 2004. After GoF, Peter Pettigrew reflects on Voldemort's plans and his debt to Harry. Monologue, speculative characterization since rendered AU. Companion to Trust.

Ice: (AO3 version) 1,175 words, Sept. 2004. Draco Malfoy explains himself and his family. Monologue, speculative characterization rendered AU by HBP.

Into the Fire: (AO3 version) 625 words, Sept. 2004 (revised Feb. 2008). Trapped with the Dursleys the summer after OotP, Harry resents his destiny and starts to wonder whether the wizarding world is really any better than his Muggle life. [15-minute fic]

*Fire: (AO3 version; FA version) 2,750 words, Nov. 2003-Sept. 2004. In the summer after OotP, Hermione reflects on her childhood, her friendship with Harry and Ron, and her role in the coming war. Philosophical monologue. Childhood bullying.

*A Little Sisterly Intervention: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 700 words, Oct. 2004. One night in the unspecified future, Ron spots Harry and Hermione sneaking out of Gryffindor Tower. Curious, he follows, until someone hexes him from behind and takes him to an unused classroom... Humor. Implied H/Hr, hints of Ginny/Luna.

Why Not?: (AO3 version) 325 words, Nov. 2004. Hermione notices Ginny looking, and takes her up on the offer. Hermione/Ginny.

Lord Voldemort: An Introduction for Muggles: 2,300 words, Aug. 2002-Nov. 2004. Mallory Stubbins, a Muggle pedicurist, winds up as a prisoner of the Death Eaters. This began as humor, took a screaming left turn into darkness, and was then rendered AU by OotP, which killed my interest in finishing it. Fragment. Implied torture.

*Falls the Shadow: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 1,200 words, Nov. 2004. After his seventh year at that place, Petunia has a final meeting with her nephew. Familial dysfunction. [15-minute fic]

Better Left Unseen: (AO3 version) 500 words, Dec. 2004. Ron visits his sister on a Saturday night and gets an unwelcome surprise. Pointless OOC, implied smut, polyamory -- in other words, complete and utter crack. [15-minute fic]



***Definitions of Romance: (AO3 version; ff.net version; FA version) 1,900 words, Feb. 2005. Everyone said they were the least romantic couple in the world. A love story. Harry/Hermione. ("Definitions of Romance" is probably my most popular oneshot in any fandom, ever. I'm still bemused by that.) [Gift!fic for [livejournal.com profile] annearchy]

****Knives: (AO3 version; removed by ff.net; FA version) 11,400 words, May 2005-July 2005. Beware, you who fight evil, lest you fall into darkness. Beware, you who invite the abyss into your heart. Ginny. Lucius. Harry. Guard your soul. Explicit torture, non-explicit sex, self-harm, clinical depression, societal dysfunction, the aftermath of war. Rendered AU by HBP and DH. (I love "Knives." It comes as close as humanly possible to the ideal version that I was trying to pin down in words, plus it includes Nietzsche, the disjointed hyper-reality of nightmares, and a lady-or-the-tiger ending.)

*Of a Feather: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 875 words, July 2005. Harry Potter is a blithering idiot. Hermione sticks by him anyway. Gen, friendship. Rendered AU by HBP. [Gift!fic for [livejournal.com profile] annearchy]

*One of Those Days: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 1,150 words, Oct. 2005. Hermione calls on Harry to rescue her from an uncomfortable family reunion. Occasionally good things do happen to good people, even when you least expect it. H/Hr, written for the [livejournal.com profile] hhr_serendipity ficathon.

Gifts: (AO3 version) 575 words, Dec. 2005. Hermione was not an easy child to love. Mrs. Granger, monologue, H/Hr. A failed response to the [livejournal.com profile] hhr_serendipity prompt -- I say 'failed' not because I dislike it, but because it didn't fit the prompt.

The Granger Family Reunion: 400 words, Dec. 2005. Harry and Mrs. Granger talk about Hermione. H/Hr. Another failed response to the [livejournal.com profile] hhr_serendipity prompt. Fragment. (This one did fit the prompt, but it refused to develop a plot.)



**Comfort (The Extremely Basic Remix): (AO3 version; ff.net version) 1,450 words, March 2006. James tries to change his life. Life doesn't wait for him. Light James/Lily, death of non-canon characters. Written for RemixRedux 4, based on Comfort by [livejournal.com profile] nekare.

Aphrodisia: 1,800 words, Aug. 2004-May 2007. It's hard to return to normal life after a war. One of Neville's coping methods -- remedial Potions experiments -- creates an interesting side effect that attracts Ginny's attention. Rendered AU by DH. Fragment.

The Grace of God: 1,400 words, Aug. 2004-May 2007. In an AU world whose backstory I never got around to explaining on-page (though I would have, in later sections), Petunia Dursley and Lily Potter bring their families to their parents' house for an awkward one-day reunion. Fragment. Familial dysfunction.

**Along the Way: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 6,000 words, Sept. 2007. Idealism is hard to balance against the rest of life. Hermione, post-DH, epilogue-compliant, mostly gen. Written for Femgenficathon 2007. (Many HP fans have written stories to come to terms with the epilogue. This is mine. It's also a coming-of-age story, an exploration of family and the circular nature of generations, and a downplayed love story, but I was trying to deal with my dissatisfaction at the way Rowling ignored the dysfunctionality of wizarding society and government, and Hermione was a perfect mouthpiece.) Offscreen death of non-canon character, societal dysfunction, occasional familial strife.

New Horizons: WIP, 2,800 words so far, started Aug. 2008. When Ginny Potter is forcibly retired from the Holyhead Harpies, the team sends her and Harry on a consolation trip to Greece. Coincidentally, Draco Malfoy is staying at the same resort, attempting to recover from his divorce. Post-DH, epilogue-compliant Ginny/Harry/Draco. (Yes, really!) [Gift!fic for [personal profile] askerian]

Points of Division: (AO3 version) 425 words, June 2009. Magic runs in Dudley Dursley's family. [15-minute fic]

Rationalization: (AO3 version) 100 words, July 2009. Lily is beautiful; Petunia is not. Drabble. [15-minute fic]

**Cast a Long Shadow (We All Meet in the End): (AO3 version; ff.net version) 8,500 words, July 2009. Lily left empty places behind her. A story about family, loss, memory, and the passage of time. Contains familial dysfunction, mention of war and related issues, and offscreen canon deaths. Written for RemixRedux 7, based on Points Where All Shadows Meet, by [livejournal.com profile] osmalic.



A Clean Getaway: (AO3 version; ff.net version) 950 words, Sept. 2011. Harry and Hermione sneak out for some private couple time at Hogwarts. In other words, if you were ever curious what they were up to while Ginny was amusing herself at Ron's expense during A Little Sisterly Intervention, now you can find out. H/Hr. [Request!fic for [livejournal.com profile] willowgreen]

why break a winning streak?: (AO3 version) 100 words, March 2013. Someone will always try to revive the Triwizard Tournament. Drabble. Prompt: Harry Potter, Fleur Delacour & Viktor Krum & Harry Potter, the next Triwizard Tournament. Written for [personal profile] betony in the 2013 Three Sentence Ficathon.

*Against the Wind: (AO3 version) 375 words, Aug. 2013. In the early post-war years, Ginny uses flying as a coping method. It's probably not the most healthy one available, but it works for her and Harry is understanding. H/G. [15-minute fic]

Career Advice: (AO3 version) 875 words, Nov. 2013. Bill Weasley didn't pay much attention to goblins until his fifth year at Hogwarts. [prompt!fic for [livejournal.com profile] lady_songsmith]
