Critical feedback is mandatory: No chickening out. Everybody has to give critical feedback on at least half of the fest entries.
We know each other: There is no anon participation.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas (if you want to): There is a two-step Reveal: a full Masterlist that is for participants only; and a Public Reveal where participants decide how and if they want their entry (with comments) included or not.

Purple Cat

Fic: 'Proceedings from the Herbologists’ Fortnightly', Pomona Sprout/Severus Snape, NC-17

Title: Proceedings from the Herbologists’ Fortnightly
Author: purplefluffycat
Pairing: Pomona Sprout/Severus Snape
Rating: NC-17
Content: Submission, orgasm denial (ultimately satisfied), mild pain play and restraints.
Word Count: About 2000

Summary/Description: Pomona had admitted it properly to herself for the first time this year: she was lonely, and sick and tired of not having any sex. This is the tale of what happens when a clever lady takes steps to ensure her own pleasure.

Author's Notes: This was written for venturous in daily_deviant's 2013 Kinky Kristmas fest, with the prompt, ‘Pomona finds an unlikely playmate who takes her where she needs to go; someone who helps her celebrate her lush, mature body, and releases her inner goddess.’ It was also somewhat inspired by the memoir, 'A Round-Heeled Woman,' by Jane Juska.

Purple Cat

Fic: 'Friends Forever', Sybill Trelawney/Alecto Carrow, R

Title: Friends Forever
Author: purplefluffycat
Characters/Pairings: Sybill Trelawney/Alecto Carrow
Rating: R
Warnings: Brief threat of violence
Word Count: About 3000
Summary/Description: Bad relationships don't necessarily start out that way.

Author's Notes: An unlikely pairing, generated by daily_deviant's 'alternate pairing' challenge. (the mods' wobbly smiley says it all: "o_O") - but the more I thought about these two, the more that a history between them made some sense. I hope you like what I've come up with, here.

Purple Cat

Fic: 'His, To Reason Why', Apollyon, Arabella/Fabian/Gideon, Bellaxtrix/Voldemort, Remus/Sirius, etc

Title: His, To Reason Why
Author: purplefluffycat
Characters/Pairings: Apollyon Pringle, Arabella Figg/Gideon Prewett/Fabian Prewett, Bellatrix Lestrange/Lord Voldemort, Dolores Umbridge/Lucius Malfoy (unrequited), Remus Lupin/Sirius Black, Argus Filch
Rating: R
Kinks/Themes Chosen: Padlocks
Other Warnings: Chastity devices, incest between brothers, masturbation, mild BDSM
Word Count: About 2600

Summary/Description: Apollyon gave the address differently, depending on who was asking. He had two different business cards – one bold, loud and innocent, and the other understated in neat, black script – and two different front doors. Upon both, however, were the same simple words: Apollyon Pringle. Locksmith.

Author's Notes: This was written for daily_deviant's theme, 'Padlocks'. Initially, I thought of a number of ways this could go; luckily Apollyon let me have a go at including several of them! Quite a lot of thinkerty-thoughts to go with the erotica, this time.
