heartbreak, old friend, goodbye it's me again [userpic]
Two HP fics: Eileen/Tobias and Harry/Draco

Popping in before collapsing into bed to post pointers to two fics I've written recently and give a rec to another someone brilliantly wrote for me. :)

The first fic I wrote was written for the hp_beholder fest on InsaneJournal. But before I mention it, I have to say that the fic written for me by [info]bluestocking79 is abso-bloody-lutely brilliant and should be read by everyone. I received it a day before I went out of town for a week, so I didn't get a chance to pimp it properly, but it's fabulous. It's Eileen Prince/Tobias Snape and it's a fantastic interpretation of the Snape family. (And there's a touch of Snape/Draco in there as well!) You can find it here: Wholly to Be a Fool. Go read. Seriously, you won't regret it. It's exquisite and I love Eileen and Tobias here.

I also had the privilege of writing Elieen Prince/Tobias Snape for [info]atdelphi. It's just a wee fic because I was in the middle of a flurry of deadlines, but I'm fond of it. :)

Title: Underneath The North Star And The Sycamores
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~5,000
Pairings: Eileen Prince/Tobias Snape
Summary: I'm restless, eager for something I'm not quite certain of, something I never thought I'd want.
Notes: Many, many, many thanks to my betas ([info]amanuensis, [info]winterthunder and [info]ze_dragon) for their suggestions and comments, and much love to [info]bethbethbeth for [info]hp_beholder. And a huge debt of gratitude to [info]atdelphi for a chance to write Eileen and Tobias.

"Six NEWTs," Mother says in that shrill, nearly hysterical voice she's taken to using with me since I'd come home from Hogwarts a month past.

My second fic was for the [info]hd_worldcup. (And props to my team, Team Epilogue for winning the cup. See, epilogue-compliant fics can actually work. *g*)

When I first decided on my story for [info]hd_worldcup, I wrote to [info]ze_dragon and said, "If I'm going to write about divorce, I want it to be painfully real. I want it to hurt the way the breakup of a family would hurt. I want the custody battle to be bitter, I want the kids to be at a loss, and I want Harry to have fucked up big-time because I don't want to write Ginny as a bitch and Harry as a saint. And P.S. I want to make Draco a social worker just to see if I can."

So I gave it a shot, and I was pleased with what I came up with. Of course, not that I was very anonymous, evidently. *eyes the guesses at my fic with amusement* It seems I have a certain style that's easy to recognize. I'm going to have to do better at hiding myself next time. *g*

What surprised me most about the response to my fic though was spoilers )

Title: Take A Sad Song (And Make It Better)
Prompt: Judgment
Wordcount: 48,005 (according to skyehawke...hm)
Rating: NC-17
Summary: The last thing Harry wants is to lose his kids.
Notes: Many thanks to [info]cursive and [info]ze_dragon for their wonderful beta work.

The turntable needle dragged across the surface of the record with soft, muted thumps of diamond against vinyl for a moment before the quiet strum of the guitar echoed through the almost empty flat.

(Right now both of these links go to Skyehawke, but I'll also be adding the fics to The Archive At The End of The Universe. Um. As soon as it comes up for me. It appears to not be loading tonight....)
