This story was my entry in the 2014 [info]hoggywartyxmas fest, one of my favorites. I've long wondered why there are no female goblins in canon, so I decided to tell their story. The fic got all sorts of lovely responses, for which I'm eternally grateful.

Title: Subversive
Author: [ profile] kellychambliss
Rating: light R
Word Count: ~8400
Pairings: Griselda Marchbanks/female goblin OC
Summary: When Griselda Marchbanks comes to Hogwarts to administer the O.W.L. exams, Harry and his friends see a "tiny, stooped witch with a face so lined it looked as though it had been draped in cobwebs." That lined face bespeaks a long and eventful life. Here is part of her story, told by one who knows her best. Set during Order of the Phoenix.

My profound thanks to my fab betas, [ profile] therealsnape and Boadicea12, who made this story so much better than it was.

This story was my entry in the 2013 [info]hoggywartyxmas fest, one of the best HP fests going. My recipient was [personal profile] dueltastic, who writes some of my very favorite Minerva/Severus fics and who asked for a Minerva/Aberforth/Severus threesome. I started out to write that story, but Minerva simply refused to participate. Still, I think I ended up with a threesome of sorts, anyway -- just a little different from the norm.

I normally write an older Severus, one who is in his mid-thirties, a man who has had time for some seasoning and experience. In this story, though, he's very young, only 22, and I really enjoyed writing him as a bitter, cynical, paranoid, naive, and yet (to me, anyway) oddly sympathetic boy. I still felt like putting him in a full body-bind, though; he's very exasperating. (In an endearing way, as long as I only have to write him and not live with him /g/).

I also enjoyed writing Aberforth. During my first few years in HP fandom, I gave him little thought. But in the last year or so, he's grown on me. This is my third Aberforth story, and while I fear I'm making him a bit too lovable (albeit gruffly so), I'm enjoying his company.

Many, many thanks to the incomparable [ profile] therealsnape, beta-reader extraordinaire and a fest mod whose price is beyond rubies (or any other precious thing you care to name).

Reveals have been posted at [info]hoggywartyxmas. I'm happy to report that (not counting the authors/artists I beta'd or knew from other sources), I correctly guessed eleven authors and two artists. That's right, my dears, you can't hide from Sybill Kelly and her Inner Eye (not even if you leave long comments on your own fic /g/).

My excellent gift, Four Christmases, was written by the inestimable [ profile] squibstress; nobody does a better dysfunctional Minerva and Severus. Thanks again, my dear! (Yes, I WIN at exchanges again.)

For my contribution, I wrote "Hopeless," featuring a character I'd never written before -- Millicent Bulstrode. I've always thought there must be more to her than the little we see in canon and in JKR's interview comment that she is a "half-blood", so I really enjoyed exploring her possible backstory. Many thanks to you kind people who commented on it and/or recced it in your LJs; I sincerely appreciate the gift of feedback.

Title: Hopeless

Rating: PG
Word Count: 9400
Characters: Millicent Bulstrode, Pomona Sprout, Neville Longbottom, Pansy Parkinson, OCs
Summary: Millicent Bulstrode is hopeless. And that's not always a bad thing.
Warnings: None
Disclaimer: JKR owns the Potterverse. And she'll push you down if you try to claim it's yours.
Author's Notes: From my recipient ([ profile] miss_morland's) list of lovely prompts, I used these: "a student's hopeless crush on a teacher" and "two unlikely friends."

My thanks to my ever-helpful beta, [ profile] tetleythesecond, and to the wonderful fest mod, [ profile] therealsnape.

kelly_chambliss: (Rita)
This story was my entry in the 2011 [info]hoggywartyxmas fest. My recipient ([personal profile] featherxquill, one of my favorite writers) loves Rita/Severus and asked for "something simple -- nothing but character and sweat and sex."

"Rita-Good" is the result. It's something of a departure for me in that it's a bit of a PWP. But I did try to make it primarily about exploring the natures of Rita and Severus, since I find sex boring to read if it's just there for its own sake and not as a way of illustrating or character. So I hope there's enough character development for you. And fun sex, too, of course.

Set just before GoF.

My deep thanks, as always, to my wonderful beta, [personal profile] therealsnape, who improves everything she touches.

Here's my story for [info]hoggywartyxmas. It has a Christmas setting, but I think we're still close enough to the holiday that it won't seem too unseasonal. It's a lot sweeter than my usual fare, but I was writing for a sweet (in the best of senses) person.

Summary: Dobby doesn't have a red nose, and he's never claimed to be a reindeer. But when it comes to delivering Christmas presents, he'll go down in history.
Warnings: none
Notes: My grateful thanks to [ profile] tetleythesecond for her thoughtful and thorough beta services. The fic is the better because of her.
