Summary: Unplanned family reunions can be awkward, but they can also be wonderful.

Banners from the 2013 dudley_redeemed fest!

Darling Dudley-Redeemers!

Your mods were so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love during the 2013 fest that we songquake plumb forgot to give you your participant banners!

So, with abject apologies (we know how much you were hoping to get prettyness up with your fics), we present them to you now.

We'll also be sending you an email letting you know about this post (since people seem to drop off LiveJournal more and more, and don't always return).

Thanks for your forbearance, everyone!

The 2013 Dudley Redeemed Fest Masterlist

Are you ready to look, Dudley, and see what all the nice people have made for you this year?

In alphabetical order by title, here they are!

And with that, Petunia now dons her best frock in order to declare this year's fest closed. You are free to post elsewhere, while still free to comment and to respond to comments. Thank you to everyone for playing so nicely (unlike that time when that awful Malcolm boy came round and poor Dudders ended up being forced to have a tantrum).

Just before we go, though, because we all know how much Dud likes to count up his gifts, here are a few statistics.

FIC. "Second Cup" by katmarajade, Dudley/Draco, PG-13

Title: Second Cup
Author: katmarajade
Prompt: Coffee Shop Fic
Pairing: Dudley/Draco (with sides of Zacharias/Marietta & Angelina/Alicia)
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): Some language; discussion and a brief, non-graphic scene of bullying; excessive caffeine.
Word count: 11,867
Summary: Down on his luck, Dudley finds his second chance in a most unexpected place: a coffee shop owned by Zach and Marietta. He learns how to roast coffee beans, make a mean macchiato, and that he’s not the only one struggling to move on from past mistakes.
Author's notes: Many thanks to the mods for hosting this party and for being extremely patient with my delays and frazzled emails. Thanks also to aigooism for looking this over and general cheerleading, wwmrsweasleydo for her detailed beta and britpick, starsandgraces for cheerfully answering a bajillion britpicky questions, my many f-listers who helped me come up with all the coffee drinks in here, browngirl for her guidance on Angelina’s hair, and also my husband, who betaed this like the hero he is (even though I don’t think he cares one bit whether Dudley is redeemed or not!)

FIC. "The Past that Haunts Us" by masteroftrouble, Gen, PG

Title: The Past that Haunts Us
Author/Artist: masteroftrouble
Prompt: #57 submitted by janejenajeny: Under all that brawn is a whole lot of brain. Write me a story where Dudley grows up to become some sort of intellectual. A professor, writer, doctor, scientist, etc.
Pairing, or gen: Gen, Dudley & James, past Dudley/unnamed female magical character
Rating: PG (there are small bits of language, but nothing horrible)
Warning(s): touch of angst, (mentioned) main character deaths, family abandonment
Word count/medium: a little over 3k
Summary/Excerpt: He couldn't handle it when his first daughter received a Hogwart's letter. He hadn't noticed the signs, hadn't seen her freakish nature. He's turned his back and left them and hasn't looked back since. At least, not until a very stubborn squib shows up in his class.
Author's or Artist's notes: Wow, hi random angst that came with this. I didn't expect that when I first grabbed this prompt, but Dudley does what Dudley wants! Characters who died are not the main characters of this fic, but they are of the HP series, so I figured the warning was appropriate. I'm sorry if this is nowhere near what you wanted.

FIC. "English Summer Rain" by wwmrsweasleydo, Dudley/Charlie, R

Title: English Summer Rain
Author/Artist: wwmrsweasleydo
Prompt: Own. A sequel to Just Another Nancy Boy?
Pairing, or gen: Dudley/Charlie
Rating: R
Warning(s): Brief and mild homophobia and Muggle-phobia, boxing, references to oral sex and other sexual acts.
Word count/medium: 6,000
Summary/Excerpt: "Ron and his friends are meeting up in the Leaky Cauldron tonight. You should go along, take your mind off things." Molly thrust a pile of wet plates at him and he pulled out his wand to dry them. Then she waggled her eyebrows and he sighed inwardly. "Maybe meet someone there." Charlie's spending a summer in England, but he's damned if he's going to settle there like his mother wants him to. He's not expecting to meet someone who'll make him question that decision.
The events of Just Another Nancy Boy? and after, told from Charlie's POV. This story stands alone, though, and you don't need to have read the other.
Author's or Artist's notes: Still no actual explicit smut, but hopefully this provides a more satisfying ending to my previous dudley_redeemed fic.
A thousand 'thank you's to emansil_12 for everything including twizzlers, but specifically for the beta.

PODFIC: "Cocktail Hour", by pretty panther, podficced by sisi rambles. Gen. PG-13

Title: Cocktail Hour
Author: pretty_panther
Podficcer: sisi_rambles
Pairing, or gen: Gen
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): NA
Link to text : here
Author's Summary: No one wants to work in a bar or restaurant when the Ministry is crying out for fresh minds and faces, or when people can start up their own businesses in the ruins of Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley. This is problematic, to say the least, for Hannah Abbot who was quite able to start up her own business in taking over the Leaky Cauldron but now finds herself struggling to actually staff it.
Podficcer's notes: Thanks to pretty_panther for the permission and margi_lynn for the listen.
