elemental banner


Title: Elemental (The Illustrated Edition)
Author: deslea
Pairing: Bellatrix/Tom Riddle, Bellatrix/Voldemort, background Lucius/Narcissa, Bellatrix/Rodolphus friendship
Other Keywords: First War, science of magic, theatre of war, character study
Rating: Fic is PG-13, but the art pushes it into R (one piece not worksafe)
Word Count: ~8,000
Summary: Tom wouldn't be Tom without dirty tricks and mind games. That doesn't make it any less of a love story. (Or: What Tom wants, Tom is determined to get. He didn't bargain on actually falling in love).

"I love your daughter, Cygnus," he'd said in a low voice, and that was a baldfaced lie. What he was, that feverish summer, was desperately, achingly in lust with her.

Fic: 'Professor C. Binns: A Personal History', Cuthbert Binns/Walburga Black, PG - Part 2

Title: Professor C. Binns: A Personal History
Author: purplefluffycat
Pairings: Cuthbert Binns/Walburga Black, Walburga Black/Orion Black
Rating: PG
Word Count: About 13,300

Summary:

Transcribed from back cover of book:

Professor Cuthbert Binns (living: 1865-1963, haunting: 1963- ) is the leading Magical Historian of his day. He has published widely on topics ranging from, 'The origins of magic in native rock art,' to 'Wizard-Muggle relations through the ages', and was awarded an Order of Merlin (second class) in 1936, when his seminal work, 'A History of the magical world in 100,000 pages' became the best-selling Historical text on record.

This volume, however, is - for the first time - autobiographical in nature. It is thus somewhat experimental in nature, but serves to remind both the author and the reader that we each build the fabric of History, in our own ways, however small.

"Being in love with a person is more difficult than being in love with a book. You can carry a book with you wherever you go, but a person moves around on their own, and one is never sure where they are or where one will see them, next. Also, books get older in a predictable way: if you take good care of them they don't seem very different at all - aside from the odd scratch on the cover or a looseness to the spine - but people can change their thoughts and feelings and opinions, such that what was once written there disappears altogether and is replaced by information of an entirely different sort.

That is why people are so difficult."



Author: C. Binns.
Dictation: Gluey the House elf.
Production: A.P.W.B. Dumbledore, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,
Published, 1964; Revised, 1991.



Author's Notes: This atory was written for psyfic in the fabulous hp_beholder exchange, 2012. Her request included 'friendship' and 'a meeting of the minds', and I have attempted to include these ideas here. The tale is also somewhat inspired by 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' by Mark Haddon.

FIC: A Husband for Your Turn (Bellatrix/Rodolphus - PG13)

Title: A Husband for Your Turn (Betrothal Series #4)
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Bellatrix/Rodolphus
Characters: Bellatrix, Rodolphus, Rabastan, Narcissa, mention of various others of the pureblood set, both canon and OC
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 5400
Summary: Bellatrix has been ordered to be receptive to Rodolphus's proposal -- but he still wants to persuade her for himself. The ensuing conversation forces two stubborn, hot-tempered, passion-driven individuals to face up to a few things they'd far rather avoid.
Snippet: “Every other man in there,” Rodolphus asserted, jabbing a finger up towards the glowing lights from the ballroom, “the ones that didn’t come to despise you, they would give up on you, sooner or later. Our political activities don’t figure into that. Even if they allowed it, even if they approved, they still wouldn’t be able to handle you. You would wear them out, and they’d just stop trying to have any sort of influence on you at all.”
“And why shouldn’t I want that?” Bella challenged. “I think a husband who would stay out of my way sounds ideal.”
“You don’t, really,” Rodolphus answered, catching her around the waist with one arm. His other hand stole up, twisting one of her dark curls around his finger. “You’re just saying that because you think it sounds shocking and independent.”

FIC: The Comfortable Wound

Title: The Comfortable Wound
Word Count: approximately 32K
Characters/Pairings: Regulus Black, Harry Potter, Narcissa Malfoy, Andromeda Tonks, Ginny Weasley

Rating: R
Warnings: Racism
Summary:
Harry Potter has a lot to contend with: a failing relationship, a life debt to Narcissa Malfoy, unpleasant family secrets, a grieving George Weasley, babysitting duties imposed by Andromeda Tonks, and a supremely unheroic postwar world. He can be forgiven for passing the Resurrection Stone off to Kreacher without a second thought. He might not have done it if he'd known the stone was meant to work on Inferi.

He was thinking too much. He'd have to Pensieve it later. He couldn't remember ever thinking when they were like this before. Now, when thoughts were dangerous, he seemed to do it all the time.
