|Quid 2, in 25 posts

Title: Quid 2
Series: Posts 1 - 5
Pairing: Threesome: Snape/Harry/Draco
Posting began: August 22, 2006
Posting ended: April 7, 2007
Spoilers: HBP has never been published. (Now you can add DH!) Hey, I ignored Carter's killing off Krycek, I can ignore anything I want in this fandom.
Disclaimer: I'm just borrowing them. I'll return them. Promise.
Theme: PPP and you can thank not_sally for inventing the term. It means "Porn Plus Plot".
Warning 1: Yep, smut, smut, smut and more smut, mingling in with plot.
Warning 2: This is being written as I go along. A real WIP, which is ironic as I won't read those. I have no idea where this is going. I haven't even jotted down notes. The last time I did this, I thought it would be done in 25 or so posts. The final total was 105.
Warning 3: I sort of remember Quid Pro Quo, T.O.O. (aka The Neverending Story), in a very general way. Plot and sex-wise. There may or may not be some continuance. If there is, that's sheer luck as I will not be rereading Quid 1(as it shall now be called).
Warning 4: Quid 1 was written in response to your comments. If you want to keep me on track plot-wise, that's your job. Ditto for the smut. If there's something in particular you'd like, comment. The plot bit is all mine (in agreement with Snape, Harry and Draco).
Warning 5: I may listen to you and I may not. That's my prerogative as the cranky writer. Besides, the characters also have a say in this and I tend to listen to them first. Otherwise, when they pout, they are not very co-operative and we all suffer.
Warning 6: Posting schedule. Who knows? Take it as it comes. Subject header, after this one, will always indicate Quid 2, so you can ignore the other stuff.
Warning 7: As westmoon will concur, I often have trouble finding the right expression or word. Call it an aging brain, call it whatever...I depend on my betas to know what I am trying to say and to give me the right expression/word. That's also your job.
Warning 7a: Quid 1 can be found at: http://tales-of-josan.livejournal.com/39951.html
Be forewarned: It's 22 posts in all. Lots of reading. Mind, you don't need to have read it, but if you intend to beta this, it might help.
Warning 8: I think that's it. So, without further ado, on y va!
ETA after it was all over: This turned out to have 125 posts. So, at five gathered here in each post, you're looking at 25 of the things.
A.N.: Well, it turned out to have a lot less porn than I had planned. Plot and characters took over. Boy, did they ever! Still, those who read along when Quid 2 was being written didn't seem to complain all that much. As usual, there are plot holes you could drive a truck through, but that's what happens with this kind of writing. All I've done is go back and correct some typos, punctuation and terms that were changed later in the story.
BETAS: Many thanks to those who corrected as I wrote and especially to hp_reader who went back to the very beginning then prodded me to clean up the typos and the punctuation at the very least. Grand merci, all.
ETA: At posting. This gathered posting represents hours of work. If there are still typos, corrections, spacing problems, etc., just ignore them. I've done the best I can. I really have to stop writing these monsters.
