Fic: The Sacrifice of Right for Everyone (Part 2 of 2)

Title: The Sacrifice of Right
Author: ???
A gift for: Everyone!
Rating: PG-13
Length: 14,500+
Character(s): Minerva McGonagall, Percy Weasley, assorted supporting cast
Warnings: Makes use of bits of secondary canon from Pottermore, but no prior knowledge of them is required to understand the story.
Summary: When Minerva McGonagall discovers a cryptic note among Dumbledore's old papers, she finds herself investigating a mystery involving goblins, ancient runes, and Beedle the Bard, with the invaluable assistance of Percy Weasley.
Author's Notes: Thanks to the mods for going above and beyond the call of duty in giving me time to finish this -- although in a way you get two stories for the price of one. :) Note for the avoidance of confusion: a 'CV' (curriculum vitae) in British usage is the same as a 'resumé' in US usage -- a list of accomplishments submitted in support of a job application.

Read Part 1 First!

Fic: Let nothing ye dismay for snorkackcatcher

Apologies for the later-than-usual posting today!

Title: Let nothing ye dismay
Author: ???
A Gift for: snorkackcatcher
Rating: G
Length: 1330 words
Characters: Rubeus Hagrid, Minerva McGonagall
Summary: Hagrid has missed Christmas dinner, and Minerva is concerned. But Hagrid has some concerns of his own.
Author’s Note Dear snorkackcatcher, among other things you asked what Hagrid thought about Hermione visiting him so much in PoA. Although this is set a little earlier than the bulk of her visits, and evolved more into a look into what Hagrid thinks of Professor McGonagall, I hope you enjoy this glimpse into his world.

Fic: what if this storm ends? for primeideal

Title: what if this storm ends?
Author: ???
A Gift for: [personal profile] primeideal
Rating: PG-13
Length: 2,345
Character(s): Lavender Brown
Warnings: character death, a few swear words.
Author's Notes: I stumbled upon this fest a little late, but fortunately still got the opportunity to participate by pinch-hitting. Thanks go to my beta for looking at this even though I didn’t tell her about it until I sent it her way and demanded it back the same day. For [personal profile] primeideal, who wanted to know about kids in Dumbledore’s Army, perhaps a fleshing out of a lesser known character, and hoped for a bit of humor. I hope this hits the spot.
