Dear football betters, writers and readers!
Another round of football betting and paying debts has come to an end. Without further ado, allow me to present reveals and masterlist:
( The MasterlistCollapse )
( Guessing Game ResultsCollapse )
I want to thank the participants, readers, and commenters. hp_footballbets is only a very small fests, and we, the mods, were stunned by the great response it was getting. You were fabulous, ladies! ♥♥♥
Much love to tetleythesecond, best co-mod ever, who had to run great parts of the fest all alone when my internet provider decided I could go without web access for another week after my move. *hugs* (To Tetley, of course, not to that company.)
And now I stop babbling. Hope to see you again at the next big football event!
Dear fellow betters and readers!
With yesterday's bonus ficlets, posting at hp_footballbets has come to an end. Time for another round of fun:
( The Anonymous Masterlist cum Guessing Game pollCollapse )
Reveals and Masterlist will be posted Saturday next, so you have a week to guess the author, and to read and reread while the stories are still anonymous. Please don't forget to leave a comment.
And if you love a story so much that you want to rec it, please comment here with a link to your rec. It would be brilliant if we could send a hot rec or two to the Daily Snitch.
Have fun! :)

Title: The Winner Takes All
Characters: Minerva McGonagall/Severus Snape
Prompts: my own
Word Count: 420
Summary: Minerva comes to collect her prize.
Author's Notes: Written shortly after I signed up to do this, as I assumed, given my complete lack of football knowledge, I surely be paying up, and not realizing there would be prompts to work from later. So, now it’s my gift to the Mods and all of you to thank you for this wonderful fest. I hope you enjoy! Un beta-ed, so I’m the one you need to forgive for any mistakes.
( The Winner Takes AllCollapse )
With yesterday's fic, regular posting has come to an end. But as is proper for a football match in which there are only winners and no losers, there'll be two short rounds of extra time. Here's the first one.
Title: A Visit to the Dentist"
Characters: Hermione, Ron
Prompts: illumination of cannon (plausible motivations/consequences etc. etc. that may escape the trio, for one reason or another) or missing moments/scenes
Word Count: 424
Summary: Hermione at the dentist’s
Author's Notes: I had this scene in my head that I wanted to give the community but I think that it actually suits Queen_Bellatrix’s prompt. I hope you enjoy it. And a big thank you for my amazing beta (you know who you are) all remaining mistakes are mine.
( A Visit to the Dentist'sCollapse )
Title: Madam Malkin Calls It A Day
Characters: Amelia Bones, Madam Malkin, and an Undisclosed Third Party
Prompts: A bit of of "looking back" and a lot of "whatever wild thing that scurries across your feet in the dark", I suppose.
Word Count: Maybe one could call it a semi-hectodrabble? A quintuple decadrabble? Oh, heck, it’s about five thousand words and a bit.
Summary: Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions is closed, but Madam has one more thing to do before she can call it a day.
Author's Notes: A hearty "Salve, Regina!" to my beta, and thank you for the many improvements!

Characters: Hermione/Pansy, Draco/Hermione
meet cute | humor | midlife crisis | post-Hogwarts life
Word Count: 1,180 words
Summary: It's her voice, Hermione thinks, that dark, breathy voice, sounding like Birmingham chimneys and grey drizzle on asphalt.
Author's Notes: jaebi_lit, I would have loved to write something cute and humorous for you but I don't have it in me (yet?). I hope you enjoy my bit of midlife crisis.
Thank you, again, my wonderful beta, for your sharp eye at lightning speed. ♥

Summary: Fine way for a prospective Minister to behave, hovering like a damned vulture over Cornelius’s twitching corpse, she’d wanted to shout all day. But she couldn’t throw stones, not when there wasn’t a guarantee she’d be better in his position; the public wanted blood after all.
Author's Notes: Tetley, thank you for giving me the chance to write this little ficlet. Examining Amelia’s motivations was an absolute joy, and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them.
