Albus thoughtfully contemplated a bowl of Cockroach Clusters. “One can only speculate as to why your summer class is suddenly so popular. Miss Granger's participation is particularly interesting, as she could easily sit for her NEWTs in potions.”

“I know,” Severus ground out, remembering certain experiments. “That girl is shockingly talented, which is not necessarily a good thing.”

“I will make inquiries as to why she and Ronald Weasley signed up for remedial work.” Albus helped himself to a sweet. “As for Harry Potter, I must confess that this is my fault.”

“Why am I not surprised?”

“What do you men, Potter is taking remedial potions?” Severus stared at Albus Dumbledore. “He's a dunderhead but he passed the course last fall. He doesn't need it any more than Lovegood and Ginny - “

“And Ronanld,” said Albus.

“ - Weasley - “ Severus stopped in mid-rant. “Ronald? His marks were acceptable as well. Surely he isn't repeating the course!”

“He is,” said Albus. “So is Miss Granger, out of what she terms 'solidarity'.”

“She's at the top of the class,” said Severus, all but falling into a chair. “Headmaster. What is going on?'

“Oooo,” said Luna Lovegood, calmly sprinkling what she claimed was snorkack dander into a bubbling cauldron. “It's turning green.”

“Is it supposed to?” said Neville Longbottom. He hesitantly addd a vial of unidentified plant juice. “Gin?”

“The mimbulus mimbletonia should stabilize the solution,” said Ginny Weasley. “Go on.”

“Oooo, it's turning purple - “

Severus swept past the rest of the class (huddled in a corner, well out of the danger zone) and loomed over the trio. “What are you doing?”

“Modifying felix felicis to work consistently,” said Weasley, as the potion turned bright gold.

FIC: Magic on Your Tongue (James Sirius/Lily Luna, NC-17) Sep. 20th, 2018 @ 10:40 am
[info]gracerene, posting in [info]daily_deviant
Title: Magic on Your Tongue
Author: [info]gracerene
Characters/Pairings: Lily Luna Potter/James Sirius Potter, vague mentions of past Lily Luna Potter/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Kinks/Themes Chosen: Breasts & Illegal Sex
Other Warnings/Content: sibling incest, underage in some countries (though not technically in the UK), oral sex, cunnilingus
Word Count: ~3,800
Summary/Description: "I can't stop thinking about it," Lily confesses, soft and urgent. "Nobody's ever made me feel so good, James. I want to feel like that again."
Author's Notes: Lily is 16 years old and James is 19. Sibling incest in the UK is a bit of a murky grey area, legality-wise, particularly when it's consensual and the participants are both over the legal age of consent (16), but I figure it's enough of a taboo to qualify to the Illegal Sex theme.
I envision this taking place in my Magic universe, but this can be read as a stand-alone fic, and you don't have to be familiar with the others to read this one.

All the thanks in the world to the amazing [info]capitu for looking this over for me, and to the ever-brilliant [info]lq_traintracks for her stellar beta work! She always has the best feedback! <3

“Maybe they didn't know.” Lupin sampled a bowl of crisps and grimaced,. “Aberforth. These are stale.”

Aberforth muttered something about damn werewolves but muttered a freshening charm. Lupin ate another and looked marginally pleased. Severus yanked the bowl away before the bloody wolf could change the subject completely.

“What do you mean, 'they didn't know'? Minerva is the Deputy Head - “

“Ginny and Luna are clever enough to forge a letter. They're also very protective of Neville.” Lupin gestured at a large, folded crisp, which floated into his hand. “It makes sense, doesn't it?”

“So. Two girls who are at the head of their respective sections are keeping a dunderhead company.” Severus gulped down a fire whiskey and signaled Aberforth for a second. “It would be touching if it weren't ultimately so – so - “

“Archaic?” Remus Lupin, who looked marginally less ragged today, contemplated his own pint. “I can almost see Ginny doing this – all those brothers – but Luna Lovegood?”

“Exactly. She's a raving loony but she's brilliant.” Severus glared at his drink. “I can't believe Filius and Minerva signed off on this. They should know better!”

“To keep Longbottom company?” Severus rose to his full height, slowly, in the way that usually had obstreperous students wetting themselves. “He is neither the only student in this class nor the only Gryffindor. Company indeed!”

“Company is good for everyone, sir,” said Lovegood, adjusting the miniaturized vegetable marrows that were this week's earrings. “Besides, Neville's gran doesn't like the only other Gryffindor who actually needs the extra work, so Neville isn't supposed to talk to him. We're here to make sure he doesn't attract gristlethwicks and silver-legged teatrays.”


“They're attracted by tears, sir,” said Lovegood.

Fic: Snare (Pansy/Hermione; NC-17) Sep. 17th, 2018 @ 01:32 pm
[info]lq_traintracks, posting in [info]daily_deviant
Title: Snare
Author: [info]lq_traintracks
Characters/Pairings: Pansy/Hermione, (mentions of past Hermione/Ron, mentions of future Hermione/OMCs)
Rating: NC-17
Kinks/Themes Chosen: 1) breasts, 3) illegal sex, 4) pompoir: a sexual technique, said to require extensive training and practice to master, in which both participants remain still while the penetrated partner uses their muscles to rhythmically stimulate their partner's penis whatever they've got up there ;)
Other Warnings/Content: darkside wins AU; non-con & dub-con (coercion mostly); the coerced person getting off (Hermione hates it, enjoys it; it's pretty complicated); non-con prostitution/sex work (I've been watching a loooooot of Harlots), mentions of non-canon character deaths (highlight to read): *Lee Jordan, Ernie Macmillan, Seamus Finnigan (sorry!)*; finger-fucking; cunnilingus; mentions of sex with a strap-on; boobs all the boobs!
Word Count: 6,200
Summary/Description: "Making me come doesn't mean you've won," Hermione says. Because she's afraid maybe she will and she needs to prevaricate now, while she still can. God, what if this is the time it happens? What if it's Pansy Parkinson? In a brothel? When Hermione has no bloody choice? "Oh Granger," says Pansy wistfully. "Nobody wins here."

Severus watched as the dunderheads who had been assigned to a summer potions class shuffled out after the first lecture. Some students he had expected (Goyle, who could barely work his sums let alone follow a recipe), others he had actively dreaded (why couldn't Longbottom's grandmother hire a private tutor?), but two -

“Miss Weasley. Miss Lovegood. A word.” Severus waited for the youngest Weasley and the only Lovegood to make their way to his desk. “What you are doing here? Neither of you require extra study.”

The girls hesitated, then Ginny Weasley answered. “To keep Neville company, sir.”
