(Just know that) I want you back [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG]
Of course Al wanted him back. His nervousness from just moments earlier suddenly seemed impossibly silly.

ART + FIC

INKED [Albus Severus/Draco | NC-17]
After decades of soul searching, Draco has finally found peace as a renowned magical tattoo artist. His careful life is about to be upended, however, when he’s saddled with a rebellious and all-too-tempting apprentice.

FIC

A Molly Weasley Tradition [Molly & Molly II Gen | G]
Knitting Christmas jumpers is a Molly Weasley tradition, and not one either of them intend to give up.

You’re the One [James Sirius/Teddy | R]
James is a good boy who wears bowties and listens to Buddy Holly, while Teddy is tattooed and pierced and plays in a punk band. As James starts to spend more time with Teddy he realises just how much trouble Teddy is in, and desperately tries to help him while falling harder and harder for his best friend.

Draco Malfoy's Humiliating Mistake [James Sirius/Scorpius | NC-17]
If there is one thing that Draco Malfoy really dislikes, it is to be humiliated. And if in addition, the person witnessing the ordeal is Harry bloody Potter, that is definitely enough to leave the Slytherin dizzy with anger. Only, Scorpius happens to be involved, too, and when it comes to the Malfoy heir, Draco has a terrible soft spot. Which is the only reason that the blond doesn't actually end up killing Potter. Naturally.

A Slave To Your Love [Hermione/Teddy | R]
They both knew that it should stop.

Adventure in a Club Cubicle [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
Teddy has figured out James’s secret turn-on.

Cross my Heart [Albus Severus/Scorpius | PG]
It was tradition; every year, Albus and Scorpius would go to school's balls together. Girls never wanted to go with Scorpius, and they all wanted to go with Albus. This way, Albus doesn't have to pick, and Scorpius doesn't stay locked in his dormitory. This year, however, something has changed. Albus' new girlfriend wants them to go together, as couples do, and Scorpius' feelings for Albus, which have been brewing for a while, complicates their friendship further.

Beneath the Radiance of the Infinite Sky [Potter Family Gen | G]
Summers at the Potter's cottage had a kind of magic all their own.

On Balance [James Sirius/Teddy | NC-17]
Teddy’s always been able to fix whatever was wrong with James – until now.
He can’t fix it, but maybe together, they can learn to balance.


Unbreakable [Albus Severus/Hugo | NC-17]
Al's fascination with Hugo goes back to the day he was born and never waivers through all the childhood years they spend together, living in each other's pocket. For a boy like Al, who perpetually feels like a loser in a family, filled with over-achievers, Hugo's quiet confidence and unconditional affection feels like salvation. How could something so right possibly be wrong? Until Al slowly comes to realise that the world thinks what they have is too much and wrong. Can Al, not one up to much ruckus and conflict, stand up for what he wants in life?
