Thank you to the letters L and U for their assistance in Beta-ing. Also thank you to Delphi for granting me multiple extensions as Iacob Yaxley refused to be part of any scenario not condoned by The Well Bred Warlock Guide.

Summary: Series of behind-the-scenes moments between Pomona, Severus & a few others
Author's Notes: There are two birthdates provided for Pomona Sprout in canon, one being 15 May 1931 as well as 15 May 1941. For the purposes of this fic, I chose the latter. I used a mix of book, film and Pottermore canon for this fic, most especially for certain revelations re: Professor McGonagall. Also, I admit this (NSFW!) bit of art might have inspired me just a tad for one scene.... Happy Beholding, shadowycat!

Word Count: ~23,600
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *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 [personal profile] dueltastic for such open-ended and thought-provoking prompts. I have tried to incorporate elements of your 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." Many thanks also to [profile] atdelphi for modding [community profile] hp_beholder 2013!

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.

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!

Summary: Two couples are brought together during the time of Hogwarts' rebuilding...
Author's Notes: You wrote: 'I like the idea of Snape/anybody, and Harry/Hagrid is a favorite.' Well, Hagrid already had a partner for the story, but I decided to include his and Harry's friendship here. I took your Snape/anybody at face value and hope you enjoy that pairing. You also wrote: 'I like details about little everyday magic more than large rituals, I love Hogwarts itself as a location: the history imbued in it, the thought of rebuilding after the war, etc.' So I used a bit of all that and I hope it suits. Happy Beholding!

Summary:When Millicent Bulstrode was found guilty of colluding with known Death Eaters, she was forced to endure two years of indentured servitude at the Romanian Dragon Reserve waiting hand and foot on Charlie Weasley. It doesn't get more draconian than that.
Author's Notes: [personal profile] psyfic, I was elated when I got your assignment and tried to give you as many things that you loved as I could. This was not even close to what I had originally planned on writing for you (or who!) but these two shouted the loudest and made their demands known. I certainly had fun giving in to them. I hope you enjoy it and will forgive me for the lack of Snapeness.

Thanks to R. for all of her support and nurturing, as well as K and S for betaing and cheerleading, and of course [personal profile] bethbethbeth for being so patient and understanding.

Summary: The Giant Wizard Chess is meant to protect the Philosopher’s Stone. But, as Severus finds out, there’s more to it than meets the eye.
Author's/Artist's Notes:
My marvellous beta, K, made this story so much better, as always.

All details on the various creatures in this story are based on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander, 2001, Obscurus Books, 18a Diagon Alley, London, in association with Arthur A. Levine Books/Scholastic Press.

Without Mr. Scamander’s classic and unsurpassed work this story could not have been written. Any errors, however, remain my own. The experiment described in this story must never be attempted in a non-fictional environment.

Author's Notes: [personal profile] tarteaucitron, you said you like stories that "illuminate canon" and that "focus on buried emotions and resentments, frustrated ambitions, or awkward compromises" -- so out of your list of characters, I immediately thought of Eileen and Tobias; I suspect "resentment" and "frustration" pretty much define their lives. I tried to work in the "alternative p.o.v.s," too. I hope the result is something like you had in mind.

Thank you to my excellent beta-readers.

Pairings: Grey Lady/Bloody Baron, Nearly Headless Nick/Fat Friar
Word Count: About 11,200
Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *As the main characters are ghosts, their deaths - in the literal sense - are a part of the story. The tale does not feature 'character death' in the manner that fic-readers/-writers usually use this term, however; the characters are still very much in existence after they cease being mortal. I hope that this makes sense, and is ok with you, [personal profile] sealcat :-) <*.

Summary: After the Battle of Hogwarts, the castle ghosts are in terrible pain. Convalescing, Severus thinks he might be able to help.

A tale of now, and of centuries past - for to go onward, sometimes one must be forced to look back.

Author's/Artist's Notes: Thank you very much, [personal profile] sealcat, for the opportunity to explore the ghostly characters, and all it means to be a ghost in the world of Harry Potter; I do hope you like the result :-) Also many thanks to [personal profile] bethbethbeth for once again running this most excellent of fests!
