Annual holiday challenge call - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Annual holiday challenge call
I'm going to do this a little differently this year, because, well, I'm not spending the holidays all on my lonesome, so I'm not trying to fill up the day. So... since Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season, I'll leave the request thread open through November 30, and spend December doing the fics.

You guys know the drill! :)

ETA: Okay, it's past midnight on Dec. 1... end of the call! (This really is going to take me until Christmas!)

First three--McGonagall reunites with Sirius, James tells Ruthless about teaching, Bill finds out about Teddy and Victoire
Batch 2--Victoire and Teddy with the R/T/S portrait, Geoffrey learns a life lesson, Victoire decides to propose
Batch 3--Dora II and Elhanan, Harry learns about Reg and Lily, Teddy and Ruthless with kids and bitterness
Batch 4--the Trio talking about letting Teddy use the Stone, Lily and the Marauders sneak Andromeda out to elope, Regulus's first Christmas back from the lake
Batch 5--Teddy, Ginny, Harry, and baby James at Christmas; Princess Leia's birthday party; Alderman discusses religion with Blondin
Batch 6--Young Rose Weasley, Mira and Carina
Batch 7--Percy and young Freddie, school age McGonagall and friends
Batch 8--R/T on a birthday, James and Al brotherly stuff

First meeting between McGonagall and Sirius after Azkaban. Thanks!

You beat me to it!! Great minds and all that ...

So yes, Fern, that's definitely seconded please.

Done in the "First fic batch" post.

Teddy finally realising what Victoire means to him and going on their first date? Or maybe Bill's reaction to their relationship?

Ooh, lovely! How about something featuring Teddy, Victoire, and the Remus/Tonks/Sirius portrait, preferably after Teddy and Victoire become a couple? I'd enjoy seeing Victoire interact with her in-laws, even if they're residing beyond the Veil. I'd also like to know if/when Andromeda ever came to terms with her daughter's portrait--that one little hint dropped in another ficlet suggested that she might be having difficulties with the whole concept.

In batch 2.

Geoffrey in some situation (living or dead) where he finally gets it smacked through his head what an utter, bigotted, little creep he's been or, if that doesn't work, maybe where he has to deal with the consequences of what he's done in some kind of hereafter (although I've never been into the idea of eternal torment for eternal torment's sake. Learning from it, I can see. I can also see it as a kind of natural consequence, rather like the Dwarves in The Last Battle who are so set on not being taken in they refuse to believe in heaven when they're there).

If that's not too theologically heavy or just unGeoffrey, that is.

Cheers for the Last Battle reference!

Victoire's POV of Teddy proposing to her.

Didn't she propose to Teddy?

I'm- I'm the first one to catch this? BUT I'VE NEVER CAUGHT ONE, EVER!


Ok, I need to make my best of this! I've had a list, but I don't have it on me now, so let me thinkkkk....

Can I have the rest of, I can't find the link atm, but the other challenge fic you wrote with the Marauders sneaking Andromeda into Bellatrix's wedding? Which you originally were going to have as the beginning of Safe? It had a half way point, and I wanted to read more!

EDIT: You know what, I have a better idea I want oh-so-much more. Well, maybe. Actually, no, no, now I don't know.... I want them both....

The idea is something with Andromeda and Dora II. Well, you chose. :D.

(I'm also REALLY tempted to ask for something with Dora II and Elhanan- that's his name right?- but I know someone else will ask for that, soooo... :D.) (Btw, that means you person who is going "Hmm, what shall I request...." REQUEST THIS. YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT!)

Edit the second:

I am obviously too excited by this. And since actually no one else HAS asked for it *GASP* ok, can I have Dora the 2nd and Elhanan's first meeting?


If you've somehow actually begun the fics already, feel free to, you know, ignore me.

(No longer number 1 because I had to run off half way through writing this, heh.)

So my first thought is Harry finding out about Regulus and Lily. Or something along the lines of Regulus and Lily in general.

If you can't do that, something with James, Lily, and Al while they're still young.

Yes, yes we do know the drill. Fern posts the challenge call, we spend about two hours going through all our previous comments trying to remember what exactly we wanted to see several months ago and finally giving up and suggesting something completely off the top of our collective heads.

Well not this time. This time I was prepared! I have a list. But since we only get one each I shall have to pick wisely. (And possibly post the rest of them incognito ;) )

Now if you please I would like Teddy and Ruthless watching their kids playing up at the Roost, preferably not completely fluffy, I do like a nice bit of bitter sweet angstiness.

I think I need to keep a list, well I do I just always FORGET to, because I know a zillion times I've thought "Oh, I should request a ficlet of that!" then I forget. A list would be OH so convient... yep.
malinbe From: malinbe Date: November 27th, 2008 09:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yaaay!!! *happy-dance* I want the trio conversation about whether or not giving Teddy the Resurrection Stone is a good idea. Or something about the discussions between the Grimmauld Place portraits. Or some McGonagall/Alphard. Or I just thought of something really weird- some Walburga-teen Bellatrix interaction. Your choice! Pick whatever you want to do!

*is so excited* Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving for you.
marycontraria From: marycontraria Date: November 27th, 2008 10:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
HA, this just inadvertently reminded me of the one I wanted to ask for and couldn't remember when I saw the challenge call posted. Thank you!!

I adore you. I was about to request that. YAY FOR OTHER PEOPLE REQUESTING WHAT I WANT AS WELL! :D (The Andromeda and Ted getting married one.)

More Regulus, please! Since it's a holiday challenge, maybe his first Christmas after coming back from the cave?
demonoflight From: demonoflight Date: November 27th, 2008 09:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
I want something fluffy with kids. Soooo... how about little Teddy on Christmas with Uncle Harry, Aunt Ginny and baby James.

Sweet Baby!James

Yeah, I'll second that! And if you could manage to work in a little Jamesey baby magic...
kagehikario From: kagehikario Date: November 27th, 2008 10:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay! ^_^

Because it's not just Thanksgiving to me, it's ALSO my 20th birthday, and I'm feeling nostalgic, perhaps you might write one of Leia's childhood birthday parties?

(If you'd rather not dabble in star wars just now, one of Teddy's birthdays would be awesome too ^_^)

Hey, happy bday! :D

Ooooh, could I please have anything with Grayfur or something with Pere Alderman and religiousy - either with Teddy or with some of the cubs?
