The sshg_promptfest 2018 Summer Reveal!

What a splendid fest we've had! *twirls happily* Thank you ever so much, everyone, for making this run a success!

Without further ado, I present the SSHG Prompt Fest 2018 Summer Reveal!Collapse )

I can't wait to do it all over again next year!

See you then, and all best,

FIC: Partners in Law (G)

Title: Partners in Law
Type: Fic
Prompter: iulia_linnea
Creator: delphipsmith
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?

Partners in LawCollapse )

Prompter: aleysiasnape
Creator: chobot_so_hot
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Marriage law fic during the war where Hermione picks Severus over other Death Eaters. Hermione doesn't know that Severus is a Veela and she is his mate.
Summary: On her own after Harry and Ron go off to find the Hallows on their own, Hermione continues to fight as best she can, until the Ministry brings her in on charges of evasion and law breaking. Desperate for help, Hermione thinks up her most impossible chance for freedom. What she doesn't know is that her desperate plan will lead her to the fiercest ally she never knew she had.

For Better Through WorseCollapse )

FIC: Still Life (G)

Title: Still Life
Type: Fic
Prompter: Anonymous Five
Creator: mundungus42
Beta(s): zigadenus
Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: The enchantment over the Great Hall's ceiling fails, and Headmaster Granger summons Severus Snape to Hogwarts to fix it. Why does she believe that this is a job for him?
Note: Enormous thanks to zigadenus for lightning-fast and brilliant beta-reading and Brit-picking, to Anonymous Five for a wonderful prompt that ran away with me, and to iulia_linnea for organizing this fantastic fest and especially for her patience with long-winded authors like myself!
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?

Creator: hiddenhibernian
Beta(s): williamsnickers
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Prompt yourself for fic!
Note: My beta did a fantastic job as per usual, turning this around in no time at all. Any remaining mistakes are my own.
Summary: Hermione is plagued by love letters. Unfortunately, they're not for her. Even more unfortunate, Severus claims he has no idea who they are from or what's in them.

The Other Side of NowCollapse )

FIC: A Honeymoon in Paradise (PG-13)

Title: A Honeymoon in Paradise
Type: Fic
Prompter: rayvyn2k
Creator: articcat621
Beta(s): xxdustnight88
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Implied sexual content, mild language.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: A tropical vacation. (Tahiti? Hawaii? Somewhere else?) What are they doing? Hiding in the shade? Swimming? Sunning themselves? Something else? You decide.
Note: Thanks to the wonderful mod for both hosting this fest and granting me an extension. I hope everyone enjoys this bit of fluff.
Summary: Severus surprises Hermione with their honeymoon destination.

A Honeymoon in ParadiseCollapse )
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.'

(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.

Prophecy RevealedCollapse )

Title: Butterfly Transplanted
Type: Fic
Prompter: blueartemis07
Creator: iqeret
Rating: PG
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Off-camera, minor characters' deaths; AU to the point that the books would've had to be renamed.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Usually in Time Turner fics, Hermione goes backward. What if a "prank" by the Marauders sent Severus forward, prior to the Mudblood incident. He won't be able to return.
Summary: How important is that butterfly and the flapping of its wings to the coming storm? Severus has been moved out of his time, and we are about to find out.

Butterfly TransplantedCollapse )

Type: Fic
Prompter: eoforyth
Creator: worrywart1966
Beta(s): Velveteenbunny, timandsophsmom
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Some characters are a bit ooc.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Bundling: An old practice, allowing a courting couple to share a bed and get to know one another more privately, but without (much) physical intimacy. Sometimes, it was also a practice to accommodate guests when bed space was limited. How/where/why do Severus and Hermione come to find themselves in this situation? (SS/HG or SS & HG.)
Note: I'm so thrilled to have received this prompt from eoforyth for the 2018 LiveJournal sshg_promptfest; it was my first choice.
Mod Note: worrywart1966 has posted a longer version of this story to the Archive of Our Own and FanFiction.Net.
