Author: To Be Revealed
Characters/Pairings: Draco Malfoy/Hugo Weasley, Scorpius Malfoy/Rose Weasley (background only)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 50.692
Mental Health Issue: Post-traumatic stress disorder
Prompt: own prompt
Warnings: Mentions of nightmares, violence and torture, nothing too gory or specific
Summary: Draco Malfoy’s been having a bit of a recurring issue with nightmares ever since the war. It’s always been manageable, of course… well, right up until his beloved son decides it is time to leave the family home at last to move in – gulp! – with Rose Weasley. Draco’s world implodes overnight and it’s anything but pretty. Enter a highly-recommended – though extremely exhausted – Healer, who specializes in some rubbish odd treatment, that’s obviously never going to work. Only, the copper-haired wonder might have an ace or two up his sleeve, that Draco never saw coming. For one, it’s another bloody Weasley, and he might be, uhm, just a little bit gorgeous...

Author's Notes: About a million of profound and sincere “Thank you!”s to my super patient beta and good friend B., who fought her way through the gutter of my nightmare-inducing grammar, and cheered me on, when I felt like kicking this story to the curb for being too long, too bland, too… whatever. This piece was inspired by the lyrics of the song called “Innerlane” by Beseeched. For all of us, living with scars.

Fic: "The Walls Fall Down"

Title: The Walls Fall Down
Author: To Be Revealed Later
Characters/Pairings: Harry Potter/Ron Weasley
Rating: R
Word Count: 7,546
Mental Health Issue: Anorexia

Warnings: Language, angst, depiction of past gang rape, permitted mind reading.
Summary: Harry knows that the truth will always out. It's just painful to watch Ron cope with that fact too.
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Author's Notes: Very glad to be writing for this fest again. I wanted to write something which shows both sides of the difficulties a MH condition can bring in a relationship. I wanted to put it out there that nothing can easily be fixed, and that these illnesses can be destructive and cause irreparable damage to even the strongest of bonds. Thank you to my beta, S.

The Walls Fall Down )

Fic: "28 Days"

Rating: PG13
Word Count: 2790
Mental Health Issue: PTSD
Prompt: #15.
Warnings: General PTSD issues. Sexual innuendos. Swearing.
Summary: He knew he was crazy. That didn’t bother him. It was the idea of being crazy all by himself that sent him over the edge.
Disclaimer: In its use of intellectual property and characters belonging to JK Rowling, Warner Bros, Bloomsbury Publishing, et cetera, this work is intended to be transformative commentary on the original. No profit is being made from this work.
Author's notes: Listening to my favourite The Walking Dead, season 4 songs on repeat helped me write this; the feels, man. Tried my hand at present tense for the first time ever, so I hope you all enjoy it. (My non-usage of Draco’s name, in excess, was deliberate – it felt right for the tone and POV of the fic. Sorry, if it’s off-putting.)
