Purple Cat

Fic: (Let No Man) Cast Asunder, Horace Slughorn/Lily Evans, NC-17

Title: (Let No Man) Cast Asunder
Author: purplefluffycat
Pairings: Horace Slughorn/Lily Evans, with background Lily Evans/James Potter
Warnings: Infidelity, canon character death
Genre: Romance, Angst
Rating: NC-17
Words: About 4200
Summary:
"A spring afternoon I discovered a bowl on my desk, just a few inches of clear water in it. Floating on the surface was a flower petal...as I watched, it sank...just before it reached the bottom, it was transformed, into a fish. It was beautiful magic, wondrous to behold. The flower petal had come from Lily, your mother. The day I came downstairs, the day the bowl was empty, was the day your mother....I know why you're here...but I can't help you. It would ruin me."

"You liked her, didn't you?" said Harry Potter to Horace Slughorn, "Lily Evans was one of your favourites."


Author's Notes: This fic is the third and final in my Horace/Lily sequence (preceded by Something Old, Something New, and The Dangers of Tea), although it should make sense as a stand-alone piece. The story - although not long - has been incubating for (literally) years, so it's nice to finally get the chance to polish it up and post. Although Horace/Lily is a pairing that probably has fewer followers than even most rare-pairs(!) it has always made sense to me from canon, and I'm pleased to conclude this little arc. Thanks very much to those who have asked for the third part along the way!

Fic: 'Past the Port', Minerva McGonagall, Horace Slughorn, Rubeus Hagrid, PG

Title: Past the Port
Author: purplefluffycat
Characters: Minerva McGonagall, Horace Slughorn, Rubeus Hagrid. Various pairings mentioned, but nothing explicit.
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~5400
Summary:

Two things of which Minerva was very fond were propriety and Scotch. It was so rare these days, she reflected, that Scotch got a look-in.

A story about the trials of life, the joy of experience, and the importance of friendship – in which Horace soul-searches, Hagrid blushes, and Minerva surprises them both.

Warnings: Tipsy professors?

Author's Notes: This was written for miss_morland in the 2013 edition of the delightful hoggywartyxmas fest. I tried to include a few of Miss M's different prompts, here: ‘McGonagall/older woman,’ ‘Someone spends Christmas alone, against their will,’ and ‘The Little Match Girl’.

Fic: 'The Reluctant Phoenix', Albus/Minerva, Horace/Elphias, Albus/Horace, NC-17

Title: The Reluctant Phoenix
Author: purplefluffycat
Pairings: Albus Dumbledore/Minerva McGonagall, Horace Slughorn/Elphias Doge, Albus Dumbledore/Horace Slughorn
Rating: Up to NC-17 (although most of the story rates lower)
Word Count: ~23,600
Warnings/Content Information: Cross-gen - teacher/student (Minerva is 18), infidelity in secondary pairing.

Summary: Albus thought that he was a non-running member of the human race when it came to romantic relationships. If pushed, he would have said that he was the kind of wizard who preferred wizards. -All that, of course, was before Minerva came along.

Author's/Artist's Notes: Thanks to dueltastic for such open-ended and thought-provoking prompts; this was written for her in the 2013 edition of the excellent hp_beholder fest. I tried to incorporate elements of the following suggestions into this story: "non-traditional relationships, things people make work in their own ways when it's not obvious how or why it does", "eras and places we see only hints of in canon", "age differences being acknowledged", "blurry definitions" and "fluidity in gender roles and sexual orientation." I hope you like the result :-)

Fic: 'In the Style of a Lover', Tom Riddle/Horace Slughorn, NC-17

Title: In the Style of a Lover
Author: purplefluffycat
Pairing: Tom Riddle/Horace Slughorn
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Manipulative relationship in which Tom is 16 and is the manipulator; orgasm denial
Word Count: ~3150

Summary/Description: Tom Riddle has heard of Horcruxes, but now he needs more information. He suspects his gullible Housemaster will once again be the man to provide it. These are extracts from the diary found in the Chamber of Secrets.

Author's Notes: This was written for daily_deviant's anti-Valentine's theme, in which a prompt read: "Horace Slughorn/anyone (but another catch -- they must be engaging in sexual activity for some non-romantic reason, e.g. manipulation, deals involving sex, information gathering...)". As a twist on the prompt, here, Horace appears not as the manipulator, but as the manipulated party.

Fic: 'Aristophanes and Aesop', Horace Slughorn/Severus Snape, NC-17 - Part 2

Title: Aristophanes and Aesop
Author: purplefluffycat
Pairing: Horace Slughorn/Severus Snape
Rating: NC-17 (although much of the story rates lower than that)
Word Count: About 13,300

Summary: Hours after the Battle of Hogwarts, Severus has been found alive - but he seems to be in need of help, both magically and emotionally. Horace would never have expected to be the man for the job.

Author's Notes: Written for verdeckt in the peerless hoggywartyxmas exchange, with the prompt, "Snape does not die from Nagini's bite. How does he behave without his anchor, his purpose, his ballast? ...Is it too late, or can that be made to change?"

Fic: 'A Bit o' Posh', Aberforth/Horace, NC17

Title: A Bit o' Posh
Author: purplefluffycat
Pairings: Aberforth Dumbledore/Horace Slughorn
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: About 2700
Summary/Description: The winter of 1940 was a particularly harsh one. When a young Horace Slughorn is lost in a blizzard, the Hog's Head is the only place he can turn...

Not entirely unattractive, too. He tried to silence the treacherous part of his brain yet again. Really, it wouldn't do; the very thought of relations with such a common specimen was entirely below the salt. How could he even...? Yes, terrible it was; quite terrible. Entirely beyond belief.

- Yet perhaps that was what made it so very compelling.


Author's Notes: This was written for daily_deviant's April 'bad porn month', where pieces were inspired by an amusing collection of hackneyed tropes. In this case, the prompts were 'Rough-and-tumble, working-class guy/girl convinces stuck-up, snobby rich guy/girl to get a little dirty' and also "We must get you out of these wet clothes..." I had great fun with these clichés! I hope you like the result :-)

Rating: 15-18 (uk ratings)
Warnings Enticements: Feeding, ownership, mpreg

Summary: Draco doesn't mind producing an heir; but when his subconscious makes known how he wants to go about it, he realises it's a little... unorthodox.


This is totally for you, purplefluffycat. You were the one that made me brave enough to tell the world I liked this kink, let alone write about it. Thank you. ♥
