I've just completed my short series of Dumbledore/Grindelwald stories, and this seems like exactly the place to share them! Hopefully there are still a few of you Dumbledore/Grindelwald fans out there. :-)

Title: Golden, Ripe and Rotten (series)

Rating: PG-13
Warnings: none, except for reference to minor character death in the third part

Well, I posted a request for prompts here so I decided to post the results as well, even if I just got one prompt for Dumbledore/Grindelwald.

Basically, I wrote 26 one-hundred word lipographic shorts based on requests by commenters. The only prompt I got for A/G was 'Z':

I don't know how to link to the middle of a post, so you're gonna have to scroll down a bit

The 'Y' drabble is also Grindelwald related, fyi.

Hi all~
So, I'm currently writing a Grindeldore one-shot, but I'm just wondering if people could read through what I've written so far and give me some feedback. It's not complete, in the end I'm aiming for around 3000 words I suppose. It pretty much follows Grindelwald soon after arriving in England and ending in his meeting with Dumbledore.

It would also be great if in your feedback you could let me know your opinions on how you think the characters should be portrayed and also your ideas on how you believe Grindelwald and Dumbledore could have first met. How you expect they reacted towards each other and so on.

What I so far have is up on my deviantart Here

Thankyou muchly~ ^-^/

Title: The Motion of Mutable Things
Author: quantumspork
Rating: R just in case
Pairing(s): AD/GG
Warning(s): Angst, run-on sentences, mild implied BDSM
Summary: It’s not the promises that intrigue you (immortality and empire and liberation, sweeping and grand oh yes but they’re not what keeps you awake at night, Gellert sees to it that you don’t sleep in varied and sundry other ways though) so much as the ideas.
Author's Note: Just in case anybody's still around here!

I am currently working on a writing project and I want you, that's right, you, the reader, to be a part of it!

It's an alphabet themed series of 100 word fics. Starting with the letter A, I'll write a 100 word drabble for Harry Potter that can include every letter except the letter A. Then I do B, then C and so on. This is called lipography.

What I want you to do is to send me requests for drabbles, on my livejournal (linked below). You send me a one word request (one for every letter, f.ex. Academy or Astronomy for A), what character/pairing/era you want me to write about and even some extra info, if you'd like. Three requests per prompter, at the most! You can request any character, pairing or era you'd like, just so long as it doesn't include incest.

>>>Help an author out and send in your request, today!<<<

Crossposted at the Harry Potter fanfiction community and communities for other pairings I love. Despite wanting to keep an open mind, I'd still prefer more prompts for my favorite ships ;)

Mods: if this isn't allowed, just tell me and I'll remove this post right away.
Yuuko - The Witch of Dimensions
1. Symbol: "...this is his symbol, I recognised it at vunce: Grindelvald carved it into a vall at Durmstrang ven he vos a pupil there.
- Beetle the Bard is English, like the wizarding Shakespeare. Shakespeare is England's playwright, Russia have Anton Chekov. It's possible that when Beetle the Bard was describe as the tales wizarding families read to their children, it's English wizarding family.
- Krum, a student of Durmstrang from a wizarding family, recognize the Hallows as Grindelwald's symbol first.
-- Though it's possible that hearing the story told to them, the children could not have seen the symbol - and that modern edition of Beetle the Bard would not include an illustration of a symbol now associated with Grindelwald. A lot of aviators and sports team, prior to 1940s, had wore the Swastika for luck, it was a Sanskirt symbol appropriated by the Nazis.

2. Environment: (BTW: JK Rowling says Durmstrang is in Sweden or Norway
- "Vell, ve have a castle also, not as big as this, nor as comfortable, I am thinking. Ve have just four floors, and the fires are lit only for magical purposes. But ve have grounds larger even than these--though in vinter we have very little day-light, so ve are not enjoying them. But in summer ve are flying every day, over the lakes and the mountains--"

I think, at Durmstang, Gellert probably practically lived outside when it was warm, probably skipping classes too. This boy sounded too comfortable letting himself fall back out Gregorovitch's window, I could so see him performing stunt flying over the lakes and mountains.

.....not good but not evil + Gellert NEVER killed Gregorovitch.Collapse )

13 Teeth
Title: The Next Great Adventure
Rating: G
Pairing(s) or Character(s): Albus/Gellert
Warnings: Both characters technically already dead in canon. Not really character death.
Disclaimer: I don't own them both. Also, this is not beta-read.
Author's Note: Similar to Harry's King's Cross Station meeting with Dumbledore, Gellert reunites with his old friend after his death, before he moves On.

It ends where it begins.

I tried to keep it as similar to Harry's experience (and canon) as I could.

Title: In Yesterday's Reach and Tomorrow's
Author: quantumspork
Rating: PG this chapter, will turn to M later
Pairing(s): AD/GG (eventually), possible AD/OC
Warning(s): None this chapter
Summary: Albus Dumbledore had accumulated a century of regrets, and he was unwilling to let them pass even in death.
Author's Note: Hi everybody! Just wanted to say I've been lurking here for a while, and I adore all the fic and art even if I'm too shy to comment! Y'all are awesome. Also, I hope it isn't a problem that this fic is on FFN.

11th-Dec-2011 03:55 am - To Talk of Many Things - PG-13
HP: G/D
Title: To Talk of Many Things 2/3
Author: sphynxle
Rating: PG-13
Paring: Albus Dumbledore/Gellert Grindelwald
Warnings: Brief mention of child abuse/rape, fade to black sexual situation, religion
Summary: They say the winners always write the history and most forget there are two sides to every story.

Author's Note: The format of this story can be kind of confusing, so I will state this: Each story is in a different time line. Gellert's moves forward - from age six until age one hundred and thirteen. Albus', however, moves backward in time, going from age one hundred and fifteen to age ten. Their time lines will meet in one particular spot - the duel. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed writing it :)  Reviews are greatly appreciated!

20th-Nov-2011 12:22 am - Plot Bunnies: free to a good home
Hello, everyone! 
I noticed this place has kind of been dead for a while, and I have been meaning to share these, anyway... 

I recently went through some old notebooks of mine and wrote out all of the unfinished plot bunnies that had been hidden between my class notes over the years.... These originally ranged from fully planned out epics to two paragraphs from a scene of a story that I would never be able to finish. I managed to sort out about 30 Grindeldore plot bunnies- all of which are now in need of a good home...  

I had big plans for all of these, but my life is a little hectic right now, and it doesn't look like I will get to finish anything anytime soon, so I am putting these bunnies up for adoption. I have tried to sort them out and give them all tentative titles for your claiming/adoption convenience. I have plenty of notes/ideas/characters and timelines for most of these stories, so if you have any questions, if my summaries don't make sense, or if you find yourself stuck, I will offer up as much help as I can, but please take these plot bunnies home with you! Don't they all look so cute!?!

Title: Only You, Chapter 5 – Epilogue (The End! Thank you all for reading!)
Author: Oshun (heartofoshun)
Rating: R (this chapter is rated PG-13 again)
Word Count: Total approximate length 14-15,000 in five chapters; this chapter 2,407
Artists: fabledtruant, ghostangel; see ghostangel's art work here: http://grindeldorebb.livejournal.com/6777.html [will include links to other artwork when I receive them].
Fanmixer: queenofthebobs Find the mix here.
Extraordinary Beta: ignoblebard; he is my "go to" man! Thank you so much, my friend!
Summary: This is the story of how Dumbledore meets, falls in love with and loses Grindelwald. Pure canon (very close anyway, if one includes book verse, JKR interviews and my own relentless extrapolation!), which means it cannot have a happy ending. All and all I hope it projects the old adage that it is better to have loved and lost than never loved at all. Teaser: ”Magic like his is a marvel that I have only encountered a few times in my life and that was my first experience. I had no defense against it. My own magic strained and buzzed beneath my skin in a barely controllable response.”
