'Contracted' updated

Title: Contracted (22/30)
Disclaimer: J. K. Rowling and associates own these characters. I am writing this for fun and not profit.
Pairings: Harry/Draco eventually, also Harry/OFC, Blaise/Astoria, Ron/Hermione, Ginny/Luna, Pansy/Theodore, and past Draco/Astoria and Draco/OMC
Rating: R
Warnings: Sex (slash, het, femmeslash), angst, violence, profanity. Ignores the epilogue.
Summary: Harry Potter is the perfect Auror, Jared Sandborn is the perfect Minister, and they control the wizarding world between them. One late night at a Ministry gala, seven years after the war, Draco Malfoy finds out why--and what it might take to change things.
Author's Notes: This is going to be a fairly long story, with hopefully lots of action, but also lots of angst. At this point, I think it'll be between thirty and forty chapters long.

Chapter One.
Chapter Twenty-Two.

Callous and Strange

(no subject)

Several days late, as usual. You guys should be used to it by now, right?

I know I suck at this and I'm really sorry. I'm not going to specify due dates 'cause I'm not sure I'm going to run one next month, so it won't matter if anyone's late. Sometime within the next thirty days should be good.

I'm going to talk to a few people about taking over moderation of the two _500s comms. If anybody's interested, let me know and we can talk.
Callous and Strange

A question, or several.

(Crossposted to hd_500, rs_500, and lap_otter)

Because I know that many Potter fans have also become Star Trek fans:

If I were to create a third community along the same vein as rs_500 and hd_500, something like KS_500 (for Kirk/Spock), KM_500 (Kirk/McCoy) or even just ST_500 (for anything gen, het, or slash), would you be interested?

Would you be interested in assisting me in its moderation?

Would you be interested in assisting me in the moderation of any or all of these communities?

I know I'm often pretty slow about getting sign-ups out and distributing prompts, which would be the purpose of having others assist me--even being on standby so that you can post sign-ups if for whatever reason I'm not able to. The downside of moderating would, of course, be that any month you mod, you can't participate.

Let me know what you think! I'm fairly excited about the idea.

October sign-ups, several days late


Sign-ups will be from now until the 10th. On the 11th, I will distribute challenges--each participant must write a 500+ word fic featuring the challenge given. Sign-ups and challenges are in the following format:


You have until the 25th of October to write. On and after the 25th, as long as it's still September, you may post your fic to the community. You must post your fic here first--no links or fake-cuts, please. After that, feel free to post it anywhere!

If your fic is not posted before the first of November, you may not participate in the November challenge. I may or may not post your name in the sign-ups asking you to contact me. If your fic is still not done by December, I will give it to a pinch-hitter whether I've heard from you or not. IF YOU THINK YOU WILL BE LATE, CONTACT ME! IF YOU CANNOT FINISH YOUR CHALLENGE, CONTACT ME! Tell me if you just need more time or if you'd rather I find a pinch-hitter right away. I NEED to hear from you.

Note: If your fic goes to a pinch-hitter, you are still responsible for its lateness and you may not participate until the pinch-hitter returns a fic. If the pinch-hitter is slow and does not contact me regarding the pinch-hit, I will give it to another pinch-hitter.

If you have questions, please email me at


treacle_tartlet, you have yet to return your September challenge! Please contact me at and let me know the status of your fic.


If you would like to take a pinch-hit, please leave a comment separate from your sign-up comment. You will receive your pinch-hit challenge as soon as I see the comment, and you may post it as soon as it's finished!
CL - I step forward as the best
