My fantastic amazing gift in this year's sshg_exchange
was the absolutely stunning Root of the Matter
. I was completely floored by her take on a very challenging prompt. The story is magical, in every meaning of the word, and I lost myself in it. The first chapter may frighten you off because it begins at such a dark, terrifying point in Hermione's life, but there is hope and brilliance that follows.
My contribution was Behind the Dungeon Door
chose as her 2nd gift (!!!!!!!!!). It was one of the few times I've let go of my internal censor and just WRITTEN without angsting over the outcome, and I think I might need to take an object lesson from the experience. Writing was actually, um, fun. Who knew? I owe my eternal thanks and the non-baby equivalent of a first born to pokeystar
for the Bingo planning chat that spawned the most brilliant idea ever: a porn soundtrack for a PWP fic that featured porn. pokeystar
's husband wrote the music featured in the story, and he deserves a million, billion kudos for delivering a spectacular soundtrack.
Huge kudos also go to christev
, and sc010f
for chasing away any lingering wibbles and stray commas.
Thank you to executive producers shiv5468
