Dramione Advent Calendar

HP - Dramione - Dramione Advent2010-1
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.
24th-Dec-2010 07:33 am - Masterlist 2010
HP - Dramione - Dramione Advent2010-1
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!

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!

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.

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

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 ;)

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4,700
Prompt: holly
Warnings: N/A
Summary: Draco and Hermione are seated together at the Ministry’s annual Christmas Ball, and they might just get bored enough to discuss certain events in their shared past. On the other hand, maybe they’ll just get drunk.

Title: True Myths & Mythological Truths
Author: eevilalice
Rating: PG
Word Count: 4,744
Prompt: reindeer
Warnings: the occasional bad word
Summary: At Hogwarts over winter hols eighth year, Hermione and Draco have some special magical creatures to take care of. When there’s an accident involving Draco (of course), it leads to some interesting revelations…and more.
A/N: To me, the holidays are a time when we’re more open to reconciliation and redemption, two themes that play a major part in Harry Potter. It’s incredibly hard to seek, earn, and to grant either, so in the spirit of the season, I wish you all generous, courageous hearts. I hope you enjoy this little bit of Dramione. <3

Title: Candlelight Diptych
Artist: nejna
Rating: G
Prompt: Candlelight
Warnings: none
A/N: Diptych is composed of two paintings called Candlelight Promises and Candlelight Visions. Considering my prompt I tried to show some of Croatian traditions tied with advent time and Chritmas itself. There are several sybolic meanings that can be found in paintings.
Decorated apple is a traditional Christmas present that is given to girls as a sign of love and promise, Draco is obviously giving an enchanted version to Hermione.
Christmas trees in Croatia are by tradition ornamented with apples, gilded nuts and small size licitars. Licitar is colorfully decorated cake made of honey dough. Traditionally it is of bright red color with white trimmings and it's produced in various shapes (hearts, flowers, bells etc.) and sizes.
One of the traditions that is still followed today is the sowing of Christmas Wheat that stands for life and fertility. On St. Lucy's day the 13th of December wheat seeds are planted in a plate of shallow water where they grow until Christmas. Later the wheat is trimmed and wrapped with a red, white and blue ribbon called tricolour-trobojnica. If the wheat is strong and green for Christmas, next year will be fruitful and joyful. Candlelight from candles lit and placed in the middle of wheat represents the soul within every person.

Title: Two Lumps of Coal
Author: akashathekitty
Rating: PGish.
Word Count: 8,598 (hey, that's close to 5,000, right? >_>)
Prompt: Lump of Coal
Warnings: A single F-bomb, lots of bickering, and a bunch of opinionated paintings.
Summary: Someone has been tampering with Draco and Hermione’s presents and no stone is left unturned to see who did it and why. Here’s to hoping they get it solved before they annoy each other to death.
A/N: A ton of thanks to my trusty betas dollfaced and mazvn for telling me that this didn’t suck. I kinda butchered the word requirement as per the usual (sorry) but that’s what seems to happen whenever I attempt to include a plot. Happy Christmas, everyone!

Title: Fire Forgives
Author: Musyc
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1650
Prompt: Yule Log
Warnings: None.
Summary: Tradition demanded that the Yule log never burn away completely, that there would always be something left to carry over to the next year, to start the flames anew.
A/N: Had a lot of fun researching my prompt, planning something humorous, and then this happened. I didn't intend melancholy, but apparently that's what my brain wanted. XD

But real life gets in the way, so Draco creates another Amistlemour... with a little help from Bing Crosby.
A/N: Huge thanks to ldymusyc for helping me hash this out over the best biscuits and gravy we've ever had! Also, to ssddgr and uniquepov for doing superb beta work - you gals rock!
