New Mod Wanted

I haven't been active in fandom for a few months now and I don't think that's going to change anytime soon. Rl has to be my priority, right now. Unfortunately that means I won't be able to moderate the advent calendar this year. This was my favourite community to moderate and I would hate it if the calendar didn't run again this year.

Is there anyone willing to take over? Preferably someone who has some experience moderating a fic fest? Reply to this threat (will be screened) or pm me if you are interested.

Masterlist 2010

Here's the masterlist for the second annual dramione_advent calendar. A big thank you goes out to all the participants. Without you this calendar would not have been possible. I hope you guys enjoyed the calendar as much as I did and hopefully I will see you again next year.

We did have two drop-outs after all, but as I told you in the beginning of December, I had given out too many assignments anyway, so we still ended up with two gifts for December 24.

Also, I would like to thank everyone who left the authors and artists a nice comment for their work. My inbox kind of exploded with all the comment notifications, but I'm glad to see so many people have enjoyed the calendar.

See you all next year!

December 24 -1

Title: Pics or It Didn’t Happen
Author: sunnyjune46
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4,735
Prompt: Eggnog
Warnings: Infrequent “fowl” language.
Summary: Hermione and Draco haven't been together for 6 months and many, including Ron, want to keep it that way.
A/N: For those of you who are familiar with Facebook, the newsfeed usually updates from the top but for mystery’s sake, my version updates from the bottom. I hope the format doesn’t make things too confusing. I thought this was a unique format and had a lot of fun playing around with it. Pretend that any grammar/spelling mistakes are intentional and part of the informality of the technology. :-) Also, a thousand thanks to kalina_blue for her astronomical patience.

Title: The Santa Solution
Author: pokeystar
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6900ish. Oops.
Prompt: Easter Bunny
Warnings: language, non-graphic violence
Summary: Do not piss off the bunny.
A/N: As procedures for wizarding law and courts have not been fully described within canon, the author has asserted her right to artistic licence in the service of (hackneyed) humour. Please excuse deviations from logic and indeed, propriety, accordingly.

Many thanks and bouquets of roses to somandalicious, my most excellent beta.

And, oh yeah, Happy Holidays!

December 22

Title: Christmas Cards
Author: fangirlyness
Rating: PG
Word Count: 5225
Prompt: Christmas Cards
Warnings: Mention of character death.
Summary: Hermione just wanted to mail her Christmas cards. What she wasn’t expecting was abduction and a bizarre evening of introspection and confession with the enemy on the night before Christmas.
A/N: I was obscenely late in handing this in and owe poor kalina_blue a ton of apologies. Due to what appears to be incurable writers’ block, I drew a great deal of inspiration from other sources to write this story and am acknowledging them here. I am a late-comer to watching Buffy, and particularly liked ‘Conversations with Dead People’, from Season 7. The idea of the long-suffering heroine of the piece having a cathartic, introspective conversation with someone from the other camp appealed to me. This isn't a cheerful holiday fic, like my entry for last year, but then Christmas isn't always the happiest time when there’s a war on.

December 21 (Art)

Title: Don't look at me like that, the Elves made it
Artist: serpenscript
Rating: G
Prompt: fudge
A/N: Had a harder time in the end using fudge. All I could think was the little cubes of homemade fudge. I imagined it as something Hermione had at Christmas, growing up. This was fun to do; I went with a different look for Draco, not sure if I like it or not, but I'm happy with how Hermione came out. :D

Title: Holiday Sweets
Author: dollfaced
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~2100
Prompt: chocolate oranges
Warnings: mentions of a minor character’s death, fluff
Summary: Hermione is on the hunt for a certain holiday treat.
A/N: First, a huge thanks to akashathekitty for her speedy beta work. And thank you to Kalina for running this great fest and for giving me some much needed extra time. Also, I took a little liberty with the number of slices in a chocolate orange. They really have only twenty but for the purposes of my little fic there are twenty-four ;)

Summary: On a snowy Christmas eve, Hermione experiences what it truly means to be a Malfoy.
