A Green Thought In A Green Space

On LiveJournal, Mywitch has created an Advent Calendar of fanart delicious enough to warm the cockles of every heart. She took our requests, and gave us a daily delight of incredible art, full of joy, silliness, poignancy, cheer and love. She is so immensely talented. When I whispered in her ear MY request, she said, “Why don’t you write the fic, and I’ll illustrate?”

It was too much fun to pass up. And this is what happened.

A special thanks to the Queen of Betas, Stgulik, for making this story better because that’s what she does so wonderfully well. Also, thank you to Mywitch, for being such a beautiful, talented friend, who encouraged me to write this. You are so incredibly gifted and generous and talented, and I’m honored to be your friend.

The title comes from the TV series The Tudors. I don’t remember the context; I just liked the way it sounded.

2016-10-31 Witchfinger; Halloween Challenge

Title: Witchfinger
Challenge: General Halloween
Team: Death Eaters
Length: 5 X 100
Rating: PG-13
Warning: AU
A/N: This is just a little fantasy brought to you courtesy of the series Salem, when I asked myself the question: what would happen to a real witch in 1692 if they were brought to the stockade to be burned for witchcraft?  By the way, this is not my circus, not my monkeys, and because it’s un-beta’d, it’s also not as polished as it should be. But Halloween is upon us, soooo……

Dedicated to mywitch, whose company here is gloriously inspiring.

2016-09-04 The Hard-Boiled Flip; Flip Your Style Challenge

Title: The Maltese Hippogryff, Part One
Team: DEs
Challenge: Flip Your Style
Rating: PG
Length: 4 X 100
Summary: This is a great challenge, but I was at a loss. I’ve done angst, comedy, smut, HEA UHEA, UST and PWP here, so what could I flip? Then I asked myself, what if I made Hermione a femme fatale and Severus a Humphrey Bogart character?

This is the answer. I think you will agree, I shouldn’t quit my day job. SSHG drama in the style of Raymond Chandler.

Take These Stars Down To The World

Title: Take These Stars Down To The World
Rating: R
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Domestic Violence, Character Death (not our pair), Substance Abuse.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Hermione creates a potion just for Severus, one which he doesn’t believe he wants or needs (SS/HG or SS & HG).
Note: Special thanks to stgulik, not only for the delicious prompt, but for her Herculean effort to pull this together, literally at the last minute. Because I was so late to the fitting, I was that bride walking down the aisle while my beta the seamstress was running behind me, sewing seed pearls on the train. You rock, babe. Thank you for putting up with me.

This story is inspired by the film Chocolat, which in turn was based on the novel Chocolat by Joanne Harris. This fanfic is based on characters and situations created by J. K. Rowling, and owned by J. K. Rowling and various publishers, including but not limited to: Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books, Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended by the posting of this fanfic.

Summary: Severus’ business, Potions Potentes, is not doing very well. In fact, he plans to shut his doors for good. Just when all seems lost, Hermione Granger arrives in town to open her own apothecary, bringing with her a very special brew. What exactly is she up to, and what exactly is this cure-all potion of hers? If there is one thing Severus knows more than most, it is that nothing is ever given without a price.
