And here we have it, the 55 stories and works of art from this year's [community profile] hp_beholder exchange, now with names attached. Authors and Artist: you're at liberty to post your work wherever you want!

Once again, stories that were too long for a single IJ post were hosted on the HP Beholder Dreamwidth community. If anybody would like a Dreamwidth invite, email me at beholder.mod at gmail and let me know. Art, however, I still hosted on my own website, so Artists: please give me the new links for your art as soon as you re-upload, so that I can update the coding. And Authors: if you'd like me to add a preferred redirect for your stories, just let me know!

There's also a collection on the Archive of Our Own (AO3) for those of you who are interested in adding your hp_beholder fic. You can find the collection here: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/hp_beholder

If you'd like to add your stories to the collection but don't have an AO3 account, let me know and I'll arrange for an account invite.

(note: the AO3 is currently unable to host art, but...someday soon?)

I'd like to close with a few thanks…first to all the participants and watchers who offered to pinch hit, I'd also like to thank the authors who graciously agreed to behind-the-scenes re-assignments when the usual unavoidable difficulties arose.

And finally, for the fifth year, many thanks to all our wonderful participants (and their betas!) and all the folks who read stories and admired art and left feedback and made recs in their journals and who were so positive and supportive about the uncommon pairings that are at the heart of [community profile] hp_beholder.




As I mentioned in yesterday's post, this year's HP Beholder is being dedicated to Leni Jess, a much-loved member of the HP Beholder community, whose unexpected passing this week has saddened us all. Rest peacefully, Leni.

With today's entries - "Tasting Party" (ART, Igor Karkaroff/Viktor Krum, R, NWS) and "Professor C. Binns: A Personal History" (FIC, Cuthbert Binns/Walburga Black, PG.) - we have reached the end of the 2012 HP Beholder exchange posting.

Tomorrow, I'll be posting the (anonymous) Fic and Art Master List, and next Sunday (May 27) will be the Author and Artist Reveals.

Please take advantage of the time before the reveals to catch up on your reading/viewing...and your feedback!

FIC: " Professor C. Binns: A Personal History" for odogoddess

Recipient: [personal profile] psyfic
Author: ???
Title: Professor C. Binns: A Personal History
Rating: PG
Pairings: Cuthbert Binns/Walburga Black, Walburga Black/Orion Black
Word Count: ~13,300
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Strong language (one use), one moment of domestic violence*
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: Cuthbert, Walburga and Orion belong, of course, to JKR. This tale is also somewhat inspired by 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' by Mark Haddon.

Many thanks to [personal profile] bethbethbeth for once again running this marvellous fest, and to [personal profile] psyfic - whose request included 'friendship' and 'a meeting of the minds' - for giving me the freedom to write this.

Recipient: synn
Author: ???
Title: Choosing the Wizard
Rating: PG
Pairings: Garrick Ollivander/Rubeus Hagrid
Word Count: 14,390
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *[None]*.
Summary: Garrick Ollivander is a lost soul after everyone leaves Muriel’s house to go fight in the Battle of Hogwarts. How will he fit back into a world where he feels responsible for handing Voldemort the ultimate deadly weapon?
Author's Notes: Beta’d by my dear friend B, who is, I am sure, regretting her rash offer to beta this story, since she got it over a weekend when both of her boys were sick. Thank you, my dear, you went above and beyond the call. Any remaining mistakes are my own bloody fault.
I hope this fic is to your liking synn, though I profusely apologize for the lack of pr0n. The two main characters had a long, plotty story to tell and by the time they were done, I ran out of both time and room (see the ridiculous word count). It is a bit angsty, though I don’t think it’s excessively so, but I think you will like the ending. :-)

Title: Fantastic Beasts and How to Tame Them: a Guide For the Seasoned Auror
Rating: NC-17
Main Characters: Moody, Kingsley, Draco, Snape, Abraxas. For further pairings information (spoiler) highlight to view: *Moody/Draco, Kingsley/Abraxas, Severus/Lucius, mentioned Moody/Kingsley*
Word Count: 78,800
Medium: Pastels on Ingres
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *Minor character death - and you have to trust me on this one!*.
Summary: The summer holiday is approaching and Alastor Moody has a plan: he is going to investigate a cold case he has never forgotten. He is joined on his quest by a bored Minister for Magic, a Snape who will rather be in Azkaban and a Death Eater who can't sleep at night. Together they attempt to solve the case that has haunted Moody for a decade. Together they face immense dangers as they land on the Unplottable Isle of Drear. To solve the case, the group of determined wizards must learn to cooperate, solving the riddle of the mysterious disappearances. Moody, however, finds more than just the answer to that. Much more.
Author's/Artist's Notes: For [personal profile] leela_cat who wanted plot, dialogue and inventive uses of magic. Dear Leela, I hope you enjoy this romantic suspense drama; I think I managed to fulfil at least a few of your wishes on the way. I have enjoyed many of your stories, so it was a great pleasure to write and draw something for you. Thanks to my wonderful and helpful beta, G, for her never-wavering support. Without her, I could't have accomplished this. Also thanks to [personal profile] bethbethbeth for patience, encouragement and a bit of hand-holding. Thanks, Beth, you are great! <3 The full text of the 1542 Witchcraft Act can be found here.

Title: Steady As She Goes
Rating: R
Characters: Arabella Figg/Snape, various Order members, some OCs
Word Count: 29,400
Warnings: h/c, UST, first time, solo-sex, oral, massage (all fairly vanilla)
Summary: Arabella was in a tight spot when she accepted Dumbledore's offer of help... and then life got interesting.
Author's Notes: Thanks to my speedy betas. Mostly book canon used, though some personal fanon might have slipped in there. Note that canonically (or at least per the HP Lexicon), it is believed that Elfrida Cragg was a typo in the book and that in OoTP, the portrait was supposed to be of Elfrida Clagg. I declare writer's privilege to hereby create a new character whom you shall meet anon. Happy Beholding, shadowycat!
