I wrote this fic for the summer "Wish List" fest at [info]rarepair_shorts. It's a low-key fest: people post "wishes" for pairings and prompts, and then anyone who wants to can fill a wish and post the result. No commitment, no exchange. Minimum word count is only 200. (Maximum is 2000, but my fic went a little over, which isn't a problem. As I say, low-key.)

As you might imagine, very few people request older characters on their wish lists, so when I saw someone ask for Minerva/Rolanda, I was tempted. (There is also a fun request for Minerva/Augusta, so if you are tempted, feel free to indulge. The fest runs through August 20.) I haven't written much lately, and I was feeling the need for femmeslash.

I was just going to dash off a few quick words, but "a few words" for me is usually a relative term. I wrote this, asked the accommodating [livejournal.com profile] tetleythesecond to give it a quick read and make sure that it wasn't too dull/pedestrian to be posted, and then put it up on the [info]rarepair_shorts comm.

The immediate result was to drive my recipient off Live Journal: within hours of the fic's appearance, she completely deleted her journal. (I don't really think there is a causal connection, but it makes for a fun story /g/).

Anyway, my dear flisties and friends have been kind enough to greet the story with a lot of comments -- thank you, dears; I do appreciate it. And now for posterity, I post it here.

It was the first day of the Christmas holiday at Hogwarts, and Rolanda Hooch was bored. No students were staying at the castle -- since the war, families wanted their children at home as much as possible -- and the empty echoing corridors seemed dark and depressing.

True, the sitting room she shared with her lover was bright and cosy, but still, Rolanda was bored. She hadn't minded a year or two of peace and quiet once Voldemort was defeated, but enough was enough. Why had they bothered to save the wizarding world, if they were just going to sit around at home every night? It probably wouldn't be long before they started knitting.

"Let's do something, Minerva," she proposed. "And I don't mean a game of chess. Something different. Something wild."

The Headmistress looked up from her book. "Peeves wasn't wild enough for you?" Their resident poltergeist had livened up the students' departure by unleashing scores of Stinking Skydivers-- a new Weasley Wheeze consisting of dung bombs dropped on firework-spouting parachutes.

"Peeves." Rolanda's snort was eloquent in its disdain. "I'm talking about having fun, Minerva. Remember that -- fun? You know, laughing and relaxing and not being the headmistress for a while? I'm sure you can search the dim recesses of your memory and recall what that was like."

She was rewarded with a raised eyebrow. "We've reached the sarcasm stage already, have we?" Minerva asked, her smile wry. "All right, Ro. What sort of fun did you have in mind?"

"Well, I. . ." Not having been prepared to gain her point so easily, Rolanda was momentarily stumped.

But not for long.

"I know!" she said. "Let's dress up as Muggles and go to London."

"London? But. . ."

"And let's switch places!" Ro interrupted, carried away by the possibilities. "I'll get tarted up all femmy, and you can wear some dykey drag. A tux, maybe! Satin! What do you say?"

Since she'd got out of her chair during this speech to wind her arms around Minerva and trail soft kisses down her neck, the headmistress, after a gasp and a moan, could do nothing but acquiesce.

A few magical transformations later, they were ready. Minerva availed herself of one of the perks of her position to create a Portkey, and in no time, they found themselves outside Wicked! -- Britain's premiere witches-only bar.

Rolanda marveled at the change in her lover -- Minerva looked more rested already, smiling and comfortable with boyish Muggle hair and a black satin jacket and trousers; no one would guess that a mere hour previously, that tux had been a tartan dressing gown. So happy did she look that Rolanda decided to sneak a surreptitious photograph ) so that the next time she wanted to whisk Minerva off on an adventure, she could remind her of the good it did her.

If the headmistress had hoped they could keep a low profile, she was doomed to disappointment. No sooner did they step into the crowded bar than a gruff voice hailed them. "Rolanda Hooch! Minerva McGonagall!" it boomed. "As I live and breathe."

Ro turned to see Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank ) bearing down on them from the direction of the cloak-room. She, too, was in Muggle garb, for such was the fashion at Wicked! Rolanda took in the short grey hair and the crisp white shirt and the leather gloves and thought, not for the first time, how glad she was that Minerva was not the jealous sort; she never minded if Rolanda looked her fill at another hot woman (as long as looking was all it was, and in truth, it was never more, for Ro was never even tempted to stray. Minerva was all the woman she wanted).

"Willa, it's good to see you," said Minerva, offering her hand (Wilhelmina not being the hugging sort).

"Likewise," said Willa, giving the hand a hearty shake. "I was just leaving, but I could stay for a dram if you like. Unless. . ." she broke off, giving them and their attire a sharp glance. "This is a case of three being a crowd."

"We do have plans for later," Minerva said, snaking an arm around Rolanda's waist and setting Ro's heart to pounding. "But a dram sounds lovely."

"There's a price, though, Willa," said Ro, with an impish glance toward the normally camera-shy Minerva. "We want you to take our picture."

"Glad to," Wilhelmina replied. She conjured a quick flame to light her pipe. "If I can have a copy for myself. You're both a sight to remember. You make quite the fetching femme, Ro. Who'd have guessed? As for you. . ." she turned towards Minerva. "Didn't I always say you were a butch at heart?"

"No," Minerva replied, arching a brow.

"Oh. Well. Thought it, though. Many a time. Here, give me the camera."

She stuck her pipe behind her ear and squinted through the viewer.

"Smile!" she ordered.

And smile they did. )

During my obligatory morning procrastination, I realized that I had neglected to repost my drabble from the 2011 [info]hp_halloween fest.

Here it is:

Title: Bittersweet
Pairing: Minerva McGonagall/Rolanda Hooch
Rating: PG
Word Count: 200
Summary: To Minerva McGonagall, the first Hallowe'en after the war is bittersweet.

Many thanks to my [livejournal.com profile] therealsnape and [livejournal.com profile] tetleythesecond.

This story was my entry in [info]hp_beholder for 2013. My recipient was my good friend [livejournal.com profile] lash_larue (*waves at Lash*).

Thousands of thanks to my dear betas, [livejournal.com profile] therealsnape and Boadicea12.

Title: The Muggles Have a Word For Them
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Rolanda Hooch/Aurora Sinistra, Fat Lady/Violet, background Minerva McGonagall/Elphinstone Urquart
Word Count: 8250
Summary: In which the Fat Lady plays matchmaker and learns some new vocabulary.
Author's Notes: Though JKR may be coy when it comes to directly acknowledging same-sex relationships in HP, she's kindly given us subtext galore. Fat Lady/Violet is practically canon (if you ask me), and then there are all those lovely dykes with short grey hair and monocles. So I thought it was about time that someone brought their story out into the open.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The story takes place before the arrival of the Trio at Hogwarts -- c. 1986.

Title: Raven's Honour
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kellychambliss
Characters: Minerva McGonagall, Pomona Sprout, Rolanda Hooch, and a Harry Potter cast of thousands.
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~11,000
Summary: In 1925, three good friends open a boarding school for girls. Non-magical AU.
A/N: This story was my entry in last summer's [info]hp_friendship; I used a wonderful prompt from [livejournal.com profile] pale_moonlite. Though the fic is AU, I don't think you'll have any trouble recognizing the HP characters. The plot is modeled on old girls' boarding school stories of the early 20th century, the sort written by popular authors like Angela Brazil and Elinor Brent-Dyer. I love reading those old books, so I've had fun incorporating some classic school-story tropes into this fic: the powerful headmistress, the gallery of girls (the swot! the outdoorsy girl! the flirt!), the late-night clandestine spread, the unexpected benefactor, the tied-up-in-a-bow, deus-ex-machina ending, and above all, the sense of strong female camaraderie and friendship. I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I did writing.

Many thanks to my careful beta readers, [livejournal.com profile] therealsnape and [livejournal.com profile] pale_moonlite.

I wrote this McGonagall/Hooch double-drabble a few months ago, and I thought I'd share it with you as a bit of Valentine bittersweetness.

I hope you all have/had a lovely day of celebrating or ignoring.

The title comes from the song "Fever," sung by Peggy Lee and just about every other blues and pop artist of the last fifty years, or so it seems.
