“Oooo,” said Luna Lovegood, calmly sprinkling what she claimed was snorkack dander into a bubbling cauldron. “It's turning green.”

“Is it supposed to?” said Neville Longbottom. He hesitantly addd a vial of unidentified plant juice. “Gin?”

“The mimbulus mimbletonia should stabilize the solution,” said Ginny Weasley. “Go on.”

“Oooo, it's turning purple - “

Severus swept past the rest of the class (huddled in a corner, well out of the danger zone) and loomed over the trio. “What are you doing?”

“Modifying felix felicis to work consistently,” said Weasley, as the potion turned bright gold.

FIC: Magic on Your Tongue (James Sirius/Lily Luna, NC-17) @ 10:40 am

[info]gracerene, posting in [info]daily_deviant:

Title: Magic on Your Tongue
Author: [info]gracerene
Characters/Pairings: Lily Luna Potter/James Sirius Potter, vague mentions of past Lily Luna Potter/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Kinks/Themes Chosen: Breasts & Illegal Sex
Other Warnings/Content: sibling incest, underage in some countries (though not technically in the UK), oral sex, cunnilingus
Word Count: ~3,800
Summary/Description: "I can't stop thinking about it," Lily confesses, soft and urgent. "Nobody's ever made me feel so good, James. I want to feel like that again."
Author's Notes: Lily is 16 years old and James is 19. Sibling incest in the UK is a bit of a murky grey area, legality-wise, particularly when it's consensual and the participants are both over the legal age of consent (16), but I figure it's enough of a taboo to qualify to the Illegal Sex theme.
I envision this taking place in my Magic universe, but this can be read as a stand-alone fic, and you don't have to be familiar with the others to read this one.

All the thanks in the world to the amazing [info]capitu for looking this over for me, and to the ever-brilliant [info]lq_traintracks for her stellar beta work! She always has the best feedback! <3

“Maybe they didn't know.” Lupin sampled a bowl of crisps and grimaced,. “Aberforth. These are stale.”

Aberforth muttered something about damn werewolves but muttered a freshening charm. Lupin ate another and looked marginally pleased. Severus yanked the bowl away before the bloody wolf could change the subject completely.

“What do you mean, 'they didn't know'? Minerva is the Deputy Head - “

“Ginny and Luna are clever enough to forge a letter. They're also very protective of Neville.” Lupin gestured at a large, folded crisp, which floated into his hand. “It makes sense, doesn't it?”

“So. Two girls who are at the head of their respective sections are keeping a dunderhead company.” Severus gulped down a fire whiskey and signaled Aberforth for a second. “It would be touching if it weren't ultimately so – so - “

“Archaic?” Remus Lupin, who looked marginally less ragged today, contemplated his own pint. “I can almost see Ginny doing this – all those brothers – but Luna Lovegood?”

“Exactly. She's a raving loony but she's brilliant.” Severus glared at his drink. “I can't believe Filius and Minerva signed off on this. They should know better!”

“To keep Longbottom company?” Severus rose to his full height, slowly, in the way that usually had obstreperous students wetting themselves. “He is neither the only student in this class nor the only Gryffindor. Company indeed!”

“Company is good for everyone, sir,” said Lovegood, adjusting the miniaturized vegetable marrows that were this week's earrings. “Besides, Neville's gran doesn't like the only other Gryffindor who actually needs the extra work, so Neville isn't supposed to talk to him. We're here to make sure he doesn't attract gristlethwicks and silver-legged teatrays.”


“They're attracted by tears, sir,” said Lovegood.

Fic: Snare (Pansy/Hermione; NC-17) @ 01:32 pm

Title: Snare
Author: [info]lq_traintracks
Characters/Pairings: Pansy/Hermione, (mentions of past Hermione/Ron, mentions of future Hermione/OMCs)
Rating: NC-17
Kinks/Themes Chosen: 1) breasts, 3) illegal sex, 4) pompoir: a sexual technique, said to require extensive training and practice to master, in which both participants remain still while the penetrated partner uses their muscles to rhythmically stimulate their partner's penis whatever they've got up there ;)
Other Warnings/Content: darkside wins AU; non-con & dub-con (coercion mostly); the coerced person getting off (Hermione hates it, enjoys it; it's pretty complicated); non-con prostitution/sex work (I've been watching a loooooot of Harlots), mentions of non-canon character deaths (highlight to read): *Lee Jordan, Ernie Macmillan, Seamus Finnigan (sorry!)*; finger-fucking; cunnilingus; mentions of sex with a strap-on; boobs all the boobs!

Summary/Description: "Making me come doesn't mean you've won," Hermione says. Because she's afraid maybe she will and she needs to prevaricate now, while she still can. God, what if this is the time it happens? What if it's Pansy Parkinson? In a brothel? When Hermione has no bloody choice? "Oh Granger," says Pansy wistfully. "Nobody wins here."
Author's Notes: Ngl, boy howdy, did I have an excellent time writing this! Please mind those warnings. I didn't think I'd have this ready for my posting day, but here I am under the wire with the fabulous help of [info]sdk! <3

Severus watched as the dunderheads who had been assigned to a summer potions class shuffled out after the first lecture. Some students he had expected (Goyle, who could barely work his sums let alone follow a recipe), others he had actively dreaded (why couldn't Longbottom's grandmother hire a private tutor?), but two -

“Miss Weasley. Miss Lovegood. A word.” Severus waited for the youngest Weasley and the only Lovegood to make their way to his desk. “What you are doing here? Neither of you require extra study.”

The girls hesitated, then Ginny Weasley answered. “To keep Neville company, sir.”

Challenge 760: Snape and The Silver Trio

This group caused Snape plenty of trouble, I'm sure, especially during his year as Headmaster of Hogwarts. How did he manage them? How were his interactions with them? For our purposes, since there is some controversy about who's in this group, the Silver Trio are Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, and Neville Longbottom. So, however you see it, this week we discuss Snape and the Silver Trio.

(Remember: drabble posts now appear on livejournal and insanejournal and dreamwidth.)

Harry Potter Loot (better late loot than no loot) @ 04:00 pm

Current Mood: amused
Tags: ,

So this post is WAY late, and the only reason I'm doing this now is because I had a dream last night in which I was showing [personal profile] sdk all my Harry Potter loot and she had an asthma attack. She then pulled out a nebulizer machine from somewhere and began using it like an inhaler, and I had to scold her to use it properly (although that didn't stop me from continuing to show her all the loot). *g*
Anyway, dreams aside, I got HP loot!

You can tell it's the most recent one because I'm wearing my Summer Slytherin manicure in preparation for con going. :)

Hide your valuables! )

That's all for now, although I waited so long, the next loot box may be arriving pretty quickly.
Ah, first world problems. ;)

Excerpt from Witch Weekly's “Party Central” gossip column:

...the collation afterward, however, was marred by a quarrel between Mrs. Harry Potter and her brother Ronald after Ronald spiked the non-alcoholic punch, as Mrs. Potter had just learned that a little Potter is on the way. “Bat Bogey isn't nearly enough!” she cried before covering her brother with slime.

Deputy Headmaster Severus Snape, when asked for comment, simply shrugged and said, “I told Minerva this was a bad idea” before summoning an elf to clean up after Master Teddy Lupin, in wolf form, lifted his leg against a card table....

My dear Minerva,

Be that as it may, if you want to have a party, call it a party, not a “collation.” I've already heard rumors that female invitees are ordering tea dresses and white gloves, at least the ones who are past the first bloom of youth. The only one I can imagine looking elegant instead of foolish in such a get up is Fleur Weasley, likely because she's French and not from the West Country.

As for me, I may well come simply to observe the chaos when someone spikes the punch with your “selection of alcohol.”

Reply to Severus Snape's reply to Minerva McGonagall's invitation, from Minerva McGonagall, via an extremely annoyed barn owl:

Dear Severus:

Just because you are an atheist doesn't mean that everyone else is. Services of Thanksgiving are common to every culture, and this one is deliberately planned to be as inclusive as possible. Mother Bagham-Barnes and Rabbi Montefiore will be coordinating with Imam Damra, Pastor McGillicuddy, and Guru Singh Khalsa, which you would know if you'd read the enclosed program.

As for the food, I will be serving hot appetizers and a selection of alcohol, not gillywater. Good heavens.

Reply to Minerva McGonagall's invitation from Severus Snape:

My dear Minerva:

Are you out of your mind?

A church service of Thanksgiving? Have half your guests ever so much as set foot in a church except for weddings and funerals? Can Lupin even enter a church without igniting, let alone take Communion? Are you certain Lovegood won't bring her crumpet-coated snack cakes or whatever she's calling her latest wildlife “discovery”?

And a “collation”? Do you think tea sandwiches and gillywater will be enough to satisfy the Weasleys, especially the ones who are playing professional Quidditch?

Please rethink this.
