Molesworth the Hufflepuff

Fic: Sunlight in the Garden (Pomona Sprout/Alice Longbottom)

[insanejournal.com profile] hp_beholder reveals were a few days ago, which means I can now publicly thank [personal profile] dueltastic for the wonderful The Vultures of Love, starring Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape, Irma Pince and Argus Filch. If you haven't read it and you like any of those characters, I do urge you to give it a shot. Aside from being a great story and very well written, it's also one of those stories that makes me see the HP world and its characters in a different light. Which is one of my favourite things about fanfiction, so thank you again, [personal profile] dueltastic!

My own story, as guessed correctly by miss_morland, was Sunlight in the Garden, written for _hannelore. It was challenging to write, but also very enjoyable, so I was touched by the response it received from readers.

Author's/Artist's Notes: This was written for _hannelore for the 2013 round of [insanejournal.com profile] hp_beholder, and originally posted here. Thank you to teenage_hustler, author_by_night and [personal profile] secondsilk for beta-reading; all remaining errors and infelicities are my own. The title is inspired by Louis MacNeice's beautiful poem, The Sunlight on the Garden.

Read it on LJ or on AO3.
