Mini Fest - Week # 4

mini_fest
Weekly Round-Up # 4


Thank you everyone who has read/commented and loved our mini fest submissions. Here's a recap of Week # 4 for mini_fest ♥ Anonymous Masterlist will be posted this weekend. And reveals go up on Friday, 10th January.

See our other round ups: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3

ART:

There's Still a Chance [Percy/Oliver, G]
With a fresh start ahead of them, Oliver and Percy break the tradition of attending the usual New Year's eve parties and spend their night dancing together at a Muggle club instead. They're still young. Life is short. And they both realise some things, such as: How they've fancied the hell out of each other for years. How they should have done this sooner. That they're never leaving each other again, and that they really needed to find a place away from prying eyes so they can make up for lost time.

I've Seen the Light [Harry/Draco, PG]
For once, people weren't on their cases about coming to the Christmas party dateless this year since Harry and Draco (finally!) arrived together.

New Year's Dance [Neville/Charlie, G]
It's NYE at the Burrow and Charlie makes his move.

Surprise! [Snape/Harry, PG-13]
Teachers really don't get paid enough.

Do you wanna build a snowman? [Harry, Ginny, G]
As a child, Harry had always longingly seen Dudley making snowmen with his friends at the park. Now, when Ginny wonders about Muggles building snowmen one day, Harry finally gets his chance to try it out.

Snowflake Kisses [Pansy/Ron, G]
Ron and Pansy enjoy a stolen kiss in the snow.

FIC:

Seas Between Us Broad Have Roared [Harry/Draco, NC-17]
It's New Year's Eve, the first since the war, and Harry's moved into a new flat in an old Muggle building. All he wants is to sleep through the whole stupid celebration... but that wouldn't be much of a story, now, would it?

The Enchanted Forest [Regulus/Neville, PG-13]
Neville isn’t sure how he got saddled with Regulus Black. And the worst part is that he doesn't hate him. He expected to, but in truth, he finds him perfectly companionable. So when Regulus asks him about some enchanted forest, Neville only hesitates for a moment before agreeing.

I Gave My Love [Harry/Draco, NC-17]
Mysterious 'presents' coming Owl Post, Ron wigging out daily, and Draco being all sorts of Slytherin (or just even more himself, really); what's the story with this Twelve Days Rite anyway? All this and more Harry ponders, as he and Malfoy wend their days through the exacting grind of updating the Magical Games Standards Manual before year's end and everyone else participates in a mad orgy of Twelve Days Gifting.

Lost and Found [Harry/Draco, PG-13]
Draco is a prostitute. Guess who’s door he gets called to on Christmas Day?

Claim Me [Remus/Severus, NC-17]
Remus and Severus enjoy Christmas Eve together and watch Teddy open a few presents.

Not Even Malfoys Wear Silk to Work [Harry/Draco, NC-17]
Harry invites Draco, his new boss, who also happens to be a Veela, to spend Christmas Eve with him. It is supposed to be their first date and Harry wants it to be perfect. However, with him being a new vampire and not knowing a thing about Veelas, problems are bound to occur.
