The whole monster list - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
The whole monster list
Here's the whole monster list of challenge calls. I'm sorting them out by subject, but I figure this will do for the tag!

  1. First meeting between McGonagall and Sirius after Azkaban. Thanks! for elendiari22
  2. James telling Ruth about his first DADA lesson as a teacher. for rosathome
  3. Teddy finally realising what Victoire means to him and going on their first date? Or maybe Bill's reaction to their relationship? for amamama
  4. How about something featuring Teddy, Victoire, and the Remus/Tonks/Sirius portrait, preferably after Teddy and Victoire become a couple? for willowbough
  5. 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 for Ellen
  6. Negotiated--Victoire's POV on deciding to propose. for maidenjedi
  7. And since actually no one else HAS asked for it *GASP* ok, can I have Dora the 2nd and Elhanan's first meeting? for summoner_lenne9
  8. So my first thought is Harry finding out about Regulus and Lily. Or something along the lines of Regulus and Lily in general. for lollapulizer
  9. 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. for thornyrose42
  10. I want the trio conversation about whether or not giving Teddy the Resurrection Stone is a good idea.. for malinbe
  11. I vaguely recall a ficlet you wrote (at least, I HOPE you wrote it :) ) where the Marauders were setting up a distraction so that Ted and Andromeda could sneak off and get married - Lily throwing a fit and destroying vases, I think. I'd like to see them planning that. for sedri
  12. More Regulus, please! Since it's a holiday challenge, maybe his first Christmas after coming back from the cave? for sonetka
  13. I want something fluffy with kids. Soooo... how about little Teddy on Christmas with Uncle Harry, Aunt Ginny and baby James. for demonoflight
  14. 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? for kagehikario
  15. Ooooh, could I please have anything with Grayfur or something with Pere Alderman and religiousy - either with Teddy or with some of the cubs? for serriadh
  16. Because I like being random, I request something with Rose Weasley as a young adult, maybe no more than a few years out of Hogwarts. for stepinsidelove
  17. Mira letting Carina into (/in on) the armory in the Forest Tower, please! for insixeighttime
  18. How about R/T on a birthday, any birthday? for katyhasclogs
  19. A James and Al brotherly moment? As an adult, or any time really. for Anon
  20. Sirius barging in on Grayfur's portrait once his has been established in Grimmauld place (I assume he will be able to visit all the portraits in the house like they painting jump at Hogwarts). for gabrielladusult
  21. maybe even some AU of what would happen if Sirius hadn't died and his name was FINALLY cleared! :D. for kt_tonguetied
  22. I would LOVE a story about the Order finding the attack on Lily and James. After reading the above-mentioned ficlet, I imagined Remus walking through the rubble that night, but whoever you envision is who I'd like to see. for Lady Stratford
  23. Dora Lupin (II) and possibly her friend Elhanan Matthews, interacting with the portrait of Remus and Dora Lupin (I). The existentialism alone would be mind-boggling. :P for daksian
  24. how about a Reg/Lily interaction with DoraII/Elhanan for chienar
  25. How about something between Remus and McGonagall during PoA? Preferrably dealing with something about Harry? for scopart
  26. Something with Remus, Dora, and Sirius during Stray, please. Maybe a birthday party of some sort? for chrischewscud
  27. It would be wonderful to see some a scene between Remus and Tonks sometime during DH. for bazile03
  28. Another idea I would love is something with Dudley's family. Maybe his kids slipping and saying something about visiting their Uncle Harry and Aunt Ginny (preferably something they enjoyed) in front of Dudley's parents and Aunt Marge and/or Dudley gets mad at his parents and Aunt Marge and lets them know he doesn't appreciate their lies about his cousin. for Anon
  29. was interested by your characterization of orion (not orry)and how different he was from the rest of his family, so it would be interesting to see walburga and sirius from his perspective, esp. as he might see their similarities more clearly, since he's so different. for m
  30. Perhaps something with Hermione? I'd love to see her and Ron spend some time together, possibly discussing their children. for bazile03
  31. Some Ginny and Phineas-portrait interaction would be fantastic. I was originally thinking of the 'interruption' scene from Daedalus Maze where Teddy sent Phineas in at an inopportune moment (I think someone else mentioned it, too), but now that I think of it that may be a 'less-said-is-more' sort of moment, without getting too smutty. So any Ginny and Phineas fun would be great. for glynngriffiths
  32. Teddy interacting with the Portrait Dumbledore. Outside of his parents and grandfather, I always thought Teddy lost something by never getting to meet Dumbledore. for darth_pipes
  33. Well, since elendiari22 took mine (squee! I get to have two wishes - it really is the Holiday season!) I will request another interaction between Sirius and Minerva, a happy, non-angst-y one, preferably discussing Alphard and their respective relationships with him, if that might be possible. for sep12
  34. Ron and Hermione's wedding, or a bachelor party for either Ron or Harry, please. for aebhel
  35. I would love to see why James (the first) became a stag. for wotcher_wombat
  36. Maurice, Honoria and Regulus. Alone in a cable-car halfway up Mont Blanc. for miseri
  37. Andromeda getting some comfort about Dora's death. Teddy has his dreams, the portraits, and the resurrection stone experience, I feel like Andromeda should get to benefit from these things as well - if not directly, than through Teddy. for Cara
  38. Teddy and Victoire visiting Remus and Tonks' portraits and announcing their engagement for margaret67
  39. Something with grown up Dudley? I just love how you write his relationship with the Potters and teaching Teddy how to box and such. If you want something a little more specific, maybe getting back at George for that Ton-Tongue Toffee, but really, whatever you want! for alphabet26
  40. I'd love for some other generation Black stuff. Like, Walburga and Alphard and that whole gang, or Sirius and Bellatrix and Andy as children, or even way way back Black's. I love the way you write that family. Thanks! for Anon
  41. The birth of Teddy and Victoire's first child? for Anon
  42. I would love to see Ron and Hermione's engagement, or something along those lines. for harriet_wimsey
  43. Harry and Lily bonding before she goes to school for beceh
  44. Ever since your last challenge call I've been hoping for something with the Black brothers. Any era, but something to do with Sirius and Regulus. for spitc1899
  45. Oooh... How about a Teddy and older!teenage!Lily bonding moment? Or, the Potter kids learn about Hanukkah or Kwanzaa? for kobegrace
  46. How about Victoire preparing for her wedding - perhaps with Molly/Fleur/Andromeda/anyone else I can think of? for looking4shadows
  47. could you do a very young harry? not baby harry, but dursley-era harry. i was really haunted by that challenge fic you wrote a while ago, that took place in hunter's moon, where mcgonnagal was commenting on the masses of familial reminders in harry's office, and i'd love to see very young harry thinking about family, or harry thinking about the dursley's before he becomes a parent. for Anon
  48. Young Albus and Professor Black for fh
  49. Or, alternately, Teddy helping Dean with the portraits. for arcaneblades
  50. Something with Tiny Teddy, please. It's just that he's so cute when he was little. for mint_green
  51. I'd love to see Teddy interacting with Luna at any point of time. (And even better if Vivian manages to show up!) for shiiki
  52. Any Hermione and MacGonagall interaction would be lovely... or alternatively, anything with Rose and Hermione would be great too! for mk_tortie
  53. Since my first idea has already been asked for by someone else, how about some Remus- Neville interaction when Remus is teaching? Even though we've never seen Neville teach in canon, I can't help but think Remus' way of teaching must have had an influence on him. for ~Hermione Stranger~
  54. Please will you write for me something you wish someone would ask you to write? (A "Jim Wolfe" excerpt) for aralli
  55. How about some interaction between Lily and Sirius, round about the time she gives in and starts going out with James? for katchuri
  56. I'd like some Remus and Elizabeth, please. for Anon
  57. Maddie's point of view on the talk she has with Tonks about why Tonks is "walking on air", and Maddie's subsequent meeting of Remus at that dinner in Chapter 26 of Shifts, her immediate impression and the impression by the end of the dinner. for Anon
  58. How about Vivian finding life-long romantic happiness. Does not have to be with Neville, as he's now off-limits. for Anon
  59. An excerpt from the only unpublished novel of Fifi LaFolle, originally entitled "Dora's Devotion." for Anon
  60. I'd like some Celia, please! for Anon
  61. I'd like to see Dean interacting with the portrait of Remus. I think poor Dean needs some kind of closure, and he's never going to get it from Teddy, but time with Remus--a Remus who remembers his death and why it happened, but holds no grudge, of course, because he is Remus--would be good for him. for Anon
  62. If it isn't possible, some plain vanilla Harry-James-Lily from whichever generation you want will be just fine! for Sylvia
  63. I loved the idea of a Prankster!Harry that you alluded to in "Quicksilvers and Snitches". So I'd like a prank that Harry did, either as an adult at the Ministry or during his Hogwarts years (after all, even though Canon didn't mention it, he must have done *something* with all those Dungbombs and stuff he bought at Zonko's and Weasley's Wizard Wheezes or that he got from Ron and the twins at various Christmases and birthdays!) for Anon
  64. We all know R and T were a kind of balance for not killing Arthur off in book 5. So, how about a little alternate reality. for Anon
  65. Neil's future friends realizing that he is, in fact, potential friend material and not a monster out to get them. for Anon
  66. I've noticed that you've had several students besides Hermione--Luna and Oliver for example- -figure out during PoA that Remus is a werewolf, feel comfortable with the idea, and not tell anyone they know. I wonder if there was ever a student who found out and was unnerved, or couldn't reconcile the idea of "kindly Professor Lupin" with a dark creature, but who comes around by the end of the year? for Anon
  67. Andromeda giving birth to Dora. for Sara Libby
  68. I'm de-lurking to ask for something a little different. I noticed from a few references that you love Little Men. I was agreeably surprised, since most Little Women fans, because they espouse the misguided view that Jo should have married Laurie instead of our wonderful Bhaer, don't have much use for the sequel. So, how about some Bhaer, preferably with Nat? Don't worry about the accent, if it's an issue; a few "thous" and "thees" should get the point across nicely. for Anon
  69. "Mother Tonks" meeting one oft-mentioned 'Dromeda Black for the first time. for Anon
  70. I gave this as an option in the last challenge, so I figured I'd throw it out again. Harry playing with Lupin kidlets, as Great Uncle Harry or honorary grandfather or whatever. for Anon
  71. You've written a lovely Dorea/James and mothers/McGon. How about the other side - a Charlus/James or Charlus/Professor of choosing. It would be exceptionally delicious with whipped cream and a Sirius on top. Ta. for Anon
  72. Neville interacting with Lily II or Scorpius (or both?) for Anon
  73. Elhanan teaching! for Anon
  74. The moment you've alluded to so much in ask-the-oc-sessions but never actually shown us yet: when Remus and Dora visit the Levinsons and Garveys as themselves, and tell them everything. I'd be especially interested in Miriam's reaction, as she was the one who had the most trouble with the memory charm in Shifts. for Anon
  75. Ted Tonks learning that he is about to become a grandfather (or Ted and Andromeda discussing Dora's pregnancy and Remus' reaction to it.) for trude
  76. i'd like a young-tonks-at-hogwarts fic...tonks at hogwarts when she's about 13 or so. for erised1810
  77. If you haven't done this already, how about Teddy telling Victoire about his first day on the job at the DoM? for Anon
  78. Ron explains his broken leg and his new owl to his mother after PoA for Anon
  79. I'd like something with the old Black at Grimmauld Place. Maybe something where Sirius'generation were still little for Anon
  80. Perhaps when Andromeda learns of Sirius' innocence? for hallonboat
  81. Young Tonks and her head of house discussing her inability to stay out of trouble and her career plans? for Anon
  82. I'd like Remus and Dora interaction, during the year he's teaching at Hogwarts, or one of those letters she wrote to her Mr. Lupin when she was younger. for izilen
  83. Maybe something with Anakin and Obi-Wan, if you feel like playing in the Star Wars universe? for blueinkedlines
  84. Albus Severus Potter interaction with Scorpius Malfoy. Maybe in connection with Draco and Harry's annual guest appearance in DADA. for SideAlong
  85. How about chapter 25 of Shifts from Miriam's point of view? for Anon
  86. Hey! Longtime lurker! How about Ruthless and James' first Christmas either married or as a couple, just to put us in the Christmas mood? for Anon
  87. I remember you once mentioning Mad-Eye's family--one Eliza and one Edna--in a fic. I would like to see more of that family, pretty please. for maz333
  88. Shifts-era Daniel Morse, with either mention of or appearance by Mr. Lewis. for Anon
  89. Could you do the POA Shrieking Shack from a Sirius and/or Remus POV? If not maybe something with the Marauders, or some early Andromeda/Ted. for Leah
  90. I've seen people asking for Alphard Pallas...Could I have some Alphard Tom Riddle interaction, please? School age. for Anon
  91. Something with Lily and Remus please! for Anon
  92. I'll come out of lurkdom to ask for some Ron and Harry discussing Ron and Hermione's relationship - maybe Harry's chance to give the "big brother" speech? for Anon
  93. Otherwise, in a challenge a while ago, you did a story of Julia Lupin asking Dumbledore to let Remus into Hogwarts, and Dumbledore mentioned that he had met Remus as a child. When and why was that? I'd like to hear about it. for jme1374
  94. You know, I really loved James and Harry in "Quicksilver and Snitches." How about Harry spending some quality time with his kids, nieces and nephews, and Teddy? Telling a story, perhaps? for allie_meril
  95. I always loved your pre-DH future-fics with R and T with their kids, grandkids, great-grandkids etc, and one of the biggest disappointments about DH was that that couldn't happen...until the ending of DM. So how about some or all of the Lupinlets spending quality time with Granddad and GrannyDora. for Anon
  96. How about Remus and Mr Weasley overhearing some of the conversation between Harry and Scrimgeour in HBP? If that's too specific than anything during that christmas would be great. for BethanyB
  97. Oooh! How about Maddie learning that Tonks is dead? for Anon
  98. Child Tonks (eight at the time, I think) finding out about the Godric's Hollow incident. for Anon
  99. Dora and her Mr. Lupin, please. for Anon
  100. If I remember correctly, when Harry talked to Ron and Hermione about whether or not to lend Teddy the stone, he said something about a "dream". Can I have that "dream"? for Anon
  101. ginny with remus and/or sirius and probably during ootp for under_crisis
  102. The new British PM gets his magic briefing from Minister Granger-Weasley, or whomever you imagine being MoM during Geoffrey's uprising days... for Shloz
  103. How about something with Rose and Hugo, and how they're the absolute epitome of loving and caring sibling-ship. (How far the tongue is inserted into the cheek in this sentence is completely up to you.) for aeterna13
  104. Some James - Celia friendship,at school or later, please! for Anon
  105. If it is not too late could I please have some more on Dudley's son and Mira, perhaps meeting the grandparents? Or another Dudley and Harry discussion. for Anon
  106. I love your James 2, so maybe something from his first year at Hogwarts? for Anon
  107. DH Christmas, with Remus, Dora and the cubs. for Anon
  108. Either John Lupin I being Lupin-ish over Julia, or John Lupin II or one of his brothers being similarly inept about a female of his acquaintance. for Anon
  109. Remus with his grandchildren, teaching them things, and marvelling--if portraits can marvel-- at the fact that he is the patriarch of such an enormous family who all persist in thinking he's wonderful. Dora I is of course welcome, and need not fall asleep in their frame this time. for Anon
  110. I've been wondering what the afterlife holds for people who reincarnate. Could we see Dora II and Elhanan in their afterlife, if that's not too far in the future? If it is too far, maybe some of Teddy's generation in the afterlife? (I love your afterlife....) for TSS
  111. Anyway, I was re-reading Shifts recently, and I came across the bit where Joe Levinson talks about his parents dying in the Holocaust, after sending him away to live with his aunt in England. I'd like to read about him reflecting on this, in relation to Remus and Dora's deaths, please. for Victoria
  112. I really adore your glimpses of Harry as a dad--you make it so real and he is so HARRY. I would love more, perhaps with Albus or Lily, but I'd also be intrigued to learn more about the kind of mother Ginny is. I feel like she's a bit left out in the cold by the Teddyverse, since Teddy doesn't really have the strongest relationship with her! for hermia7
  113. You mentioned in your last ask-the-ocs-session that Julia found the eagle in one of Grannydora's wardrobes and asked Grannydromeda about it. But since Grannydora is "around", kind of, can I have Julia asking Granny and Granddad about the eagle and hearing its story? for Anon
  114. Julia Lupin (unless her name's changed) curing lycanthropy!--preferably on someone we know--and the subsequent celebrations, to which a certain portrait is invited. for Anon
  115. Teddy giving his parents a tour of the roost. I'd like to know what they think of it. for Anon
  116. Andromeda reaching the afterlife and her Ted. for Anon
  117. I wonder what Joe and Miriam would think of the portrait of Remus and Dora? Garveys can be included, too, if you like. for Anon
  118. I'd love to see a post DH Ron and Hermione with Hermione's parents - how did they take being sent to Australia? What do they think of things, esp their little girl now that they are back? for Anon
  119. I was rereading DM, and it struck me once again that it's about time somebody got around to firing Bins, as he can't teach at all...the idea of a ghost teaching a class! And then I thought, if a ghost can do it for so many years, why not a portrait? They could get him an extra frame in the classroom, and at the end of the day he could go back to the Roost and his Dora. And he could write out and mark assignments using one of those quills Finias used to write Teddy's letter. (Can you tell I've thought fartoo much about this?) So, in short, my idea is portrait! Remus teaching history of magic. I'd leave the subject open, but I figure that would be easier for a portrait to teach, since it's all theory. for Anon
  120. I know you don`t like Snape, but you write him very well (maybe because of it). Something about Snape? (as an adult, not Hogwarts pupil) for prelud
  121. The cubs with R and T's portrait. for Anon
  122. I love how you write Lupin teaching, and I love how you write Sirius, so I'd love to see a fic about Lupin teaching Sirius something. I don't care what, or what time frame it takes place in (though if there's a way to work Tonks in a bit, that would be a bonus). for samus_mcaslan
  123. Something for the puppy shippers? Though, obviously non-romantic, but, still cute! :). for Anon

Holy crap. Sure looks like a lot when you lay it all out like that. But then, it is a lot. I'm amazed at how you not only remain so prolific, but retain such high quality in everything you write.

(And I've already started thinking of what I'll request when the next one comes around.)
summoner_lenne9 From: summoner_lenne9 Date: March 1st, 2009 02:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Ohhh, thank you for reminding me! I promised you stats (how many words and what-not) and you already did one of my stats (how many fics you wrote.) And I am bored at work with nothing else to do, so this is a great one!


I'll tell you how many words you wrote and whatnot, err, once I have it figured out! :D

Something I noticed though is that... you're writing is fantastic in every single one of these. Some of them must have flown from your fingertips and been WONDERFUL to write- and I'm guessing that those are the ones that tend to be a bit longer- but some must of have been a hassle for you to write, and taken forever, and whatnot.

But I cannot tell which is which, for a single one. Except again for the length thing, but that also may not be why.

So wow Fern. Wow.
under_crisis From: under_crisis Date: March 1st, 2009 10:28 am (UTC) (Link)
and we really should think about cataloguing all the challenge calls as well. it'll be really interesting to see how some stories came about just because of the comments (i.e. lily-regulus. i'm still trying to find that out.)
summoner_lenne9 From: summoner_lenne9 Date: March 1st, 2009 08:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
I do wonder how many dang challenges were about that dang portrait, lol :).
From: (Anonymous) Date: March 1st, 2009 02:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you for writing these stories. :) Some of them held no interest for me when I read what was requested, and yet I can't think of any of them I didn't really enjoy!

Lady Stratford
From: (Anonymous) Date: March 1st, 2009 02:33 am (UTC) (Link)

OMG! that IS a lot of requests!

I haven't request anything, but these were all so great, happy inducing, warm filling, tear jerking loaugh out loud stories

and in all of them you wrote all the characters with such good justice! *my english is bad somethimes*

hope we didn't killed you wanting to write more in the future.

and i can't wait for Stay to continue! go Sirius!

mme_riphaldin From: mme_riphaldin Date: March 1st, 2009 03:19 am (UTC) (Link)
oh, lovely! I'd caught a few as they came out, but this'll be great to go back to!

also, one thing - #101 doesn't link to the Ginny story, but rather to #99...
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: March 1st, 2009 03:21 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I'm sure there are a few more like that, but I got that fixed.
maz333 From: maz333 Date: March 1st, 2009 03:30 am (UTC) (Link)
That's just... wow. Thank you so much for doing all of those! They were all so wonderfully amazing.
From: (Anonymous) Date: March 1st, 2009 03:54 am (UTC) (Link)

links to previous challenges/requests lists?

could you put links to the previous lists of all previous challenges?


thank you

fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: March 1st, 2009 04:05 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: links to previous challenges/requests lists?

They're all tagged within HP fics on LJ
tencups_i_swear From: tencups_i_swear Date: March 1st, 2009 04:05 am (UTC) (Link)
That is . . . that is just . . .
wow, it's amazing really! XD
*bows down in awe at your amazingness*
lucathia_rykatu From: lucathia_rykatu Date: March 1st, 2009 05:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Amazing. :O

I loved looking forward to these short stories everyday. Thank you for writing!
tearoha From: tearoha Date: March 1st, 2009 05:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Not to be repetitive or anything, but wow, Fern. That is some dedication. Thank you for writing all these - I still haven't managed to read them all, you're so prolific. Thanks for making my day that much brighter!
willowbough From: willowbough Date: March 1st, 2009 06:42 am (UTC) (Link)
Totally amazing.

Thanks for all your hard work, creativity, and perseverance!
amamama From: amamama Date: March 1st, 2009 09:13 am (UTC) (Link)
What an amazing list! And I think I've read'em all. Or should that be finshed them through my reading? ;-) And I'm not the only one, I guess these are as finished as any ficlets can be. Thanks Fern, for all these hours of first class entertainment.
marycontraria From: marycontraria Date: March 1st, 2009 08:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're amazing. And - I'm not saying this to be whiny, but just because I want to make sure that your dedicated cataloguers don't miss anything - I don't see mine on the list, so I think you must be missing a batch or two in there somewhere. I agree especially with one of the above commenters: although I wasn't initially enthusiastic when I read through all of the requests, there wasn't a single ficlet amongst these that I didn't enjoy. Now please write something that I have to pay for before I can read it!!
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: March 1st, 2009 08:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's quite possible. My eyes were getting bleary about halfway through, and I might haves skimmed by one. Do you remember which batch yours was in?
marycontraria From: marycontraria Date: March 1st, 2009 08:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think it was approaching the middle but in the first half - I'll go through and have a look a bit later (and I'll double-check that you have all the rest of them accounted for while I'm at it). :)
From: (Anonymous) Date: March 3rd, 2009 09:26 am (UTC) (Link)


Could you try to sort all your stories in Teddyverse chronologically? I think it would help readers who (like me) mised something somewhere :)
