Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Severus and Hermione attempt — Merlin knows why — to complete a how-well-do-you-know-your-partner quiz (SS/HG).
Note: Inspired by this New York Times article (content is a bit spoilery for the story, so don't click through unless that's what you want!). This story takes place six years or so after Voldemort's defeat. In canon, Kingsley Shacklebolt was Minister of Magic at this point (1998-2019), but I wanted a woman (sorry, JKR).
Summary: The Ministry married them; now the Ministry wants to set them free. But will they pass or fail the test?

Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.

Summary: The thirtieth anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts is days away, end of term looms, and trouble is brewing with the Hogwarts portraits. What's the new Headmistress of Hogwarts do?

Beta(s): xxdustnight88
Rating: PG-13

FIC: Good Vibrations of a Guardian Angel (R)

Title: Good Vibrations of a Guardian Angel
Type: Fic
Prompter: jaxomsride
Creator: mykesprit
Beta(s): Orcl777
Rating: R
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Mentions of a sex toy (although no actual sexual acts).
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Snape finds the Afterlife is not quite what he expects. It's not all harps and rainbows. Being made a Guardian Angel and responsible for the health and happiness of a certain Miss Know-It-All does nothing to improve his disposition. Against all the rules, he feels a definite attraction towards his charge.
Note: Thank you to sshg_pf_mod for putting this fest together!
Summary: Severus found it quite difficult to be dead; it was turning out to be a lot of work. Not only was he assigned as Hermione Granger's Guardian Angel, but he had to constantly trick her into going on dates with her 'soulmate.'

Creator: orangeblossom17
Rating: G

(Highlight to View) Prompt: Stained glass. Interpret that any way you like.
Note: While searching for inspiration, I came across the perfect scene in delphipsmith's 2014 Prompt Fest offering, The Heart the Adder Gave Him. Digital art with vector linework and colored using images of stained glass sheets. If you'd like a BW version for coloring, let me know after the reveal.
Summary: A snake, a prince, a death. Snape's need to hear the rest led to an impromptu visit to the Hall of Prophecy with one Miss Granger as the key.
