We are a community that celebrates Harry Potter characters above the age of 50.


If you like a little silver around the temples, a softness around the belly, the wisdom (and sometimes stubborness!) that comes with experience and age, and the wrinkles too, this is the place for you!

Any characters/pairings that satisfy the age requirement are permitted. Whether they appeared 50+ in canon or not, as long as they meet the age requirements in your fanworks, they are welcome here! Sirius Black at 100, Hermione Granger at 75 or Albus Dumbledore at 50—just to name a few!

We welcome multiple pairings, moresomes, het, slash, femslash, or gen. Crossovers, premature aging, AU/AR? Bring it on! We welcome cross-generational relationships as well. We love cross-gen! But please note the younger party must satisfy the age requirement as well. For example, with the pairing of Minerva McGonagall/Severus Snape, Severus must be at least 50. If your fanwork focuses on Sirius/Harry or Charlie/Draco or Poppy/Hermione the same rules apply: both characters must be 50+.

Thank you to all our participants whether authors, artists, readers or reccers. We're proud of the variety as well as quality of the entries. We hope you've enjoyed it as much as we have.

ART:

  • Things Grow Finer With Age by [livejournal.com profile] carpemermaid, Harry/Draco, PG
    Summary: Harry and Draco are moving in together, but Draco being a pure-blood wizard is just not used to all the Muggle artifacts Harry insists in having in their new house, and really, he's too old to be learning this stuff. Chaos ensues when he tries.

FIC:

  • Ash and Smoke by [livejournal.com profile] flyingharmony, Narcissa, Andromeda; PG-13
    Summary: The passing years have not made it easier.

  • The Full Measure of Time by [livejournal.com profile] _hannelore, Poppy/Minerva, PG
    Summary: It's not that Character A never thought of being with another woman, it's just that up until now they haven't met anyone who interested them enough to want to put it into practice. Both Poppy and Minerva are well past their hundredth year of life, both of them still at Hogwarts as Matron and Headmistress. When Minerva asks Poppy to teach a class on the healing arts, Poppy is against the idea but soon discovers what drives Minerva's motives. Not only that, but a sudden turn of events make Poppy ask herself why she has chosen a solitary life.

  • Grumpy Old Men by [livejournal.com profile] rosevalleynb Various Slytherins; PG-13
    Summary: Growing older sucks. “I hate getting older. Everything hurts, and what doesn’t hurt, doesn’t work.”

  • Grumpy Old Wizards by [livejournal.com profile] teshara, Severus, Ensemble; PG-13
    Summary: Both teen angst and midlife crisis were great failures for him, but old age obstinacy might be exactly Snape's thing.

  • Hey, Headmaster by [livejournal.com profile] burnin_up_a_sun, Harry/Draco, PG-13
    Summary: Crotchety Professors after retiring from their careers! Or rather, trying to be crotchety, only to find out they are beloved by the students. At least there's endless amounts of tea. Oh, and afterhours access to the Prefect's bath.

  • Inevitable by [livejournal.com profile] llaeyro, Harry/Ron, NC-17
    Summary: Ever since their divorces, Harry and Ron have been closer than ever. Really, really, close.

  • In the Aftermath by [livejournal.com profile] kikimay, Draco/Harry, Lucius; NC-17
    Summary: Lucius is dying and his son, Draco, spends his lonely days taking care of him. After the funeral, he will receive a surprising visit from his old Hogwarts rival.

  • A New Adventure by [livejournal.com profile] digthewriter, Neville/Charlie, PG
    Summary: Hanging up his flame-proof gloves at the age of sixty was not something Charlie Weasley had ever intended to do. But he was ready for a new chapter in his life and a second chance to pursue someone he thought he'd lost.

  • Night Changes by [livejournal.com profile] writcraft, Harry/Draco, NC-17
    Summary: Draco and Harry have spent years dancing around one another, but Potter’s straight and married. Until one day he isn’t.

  • Not In The Plans by [livejournal.com profile] articcat621, Hermione/Pansy, NC-17
    Summary: It's all fun and games until someone breaks a hip.

  • An Open Book by [livejournal.com profile] alisanne, Minerva, Severus; G
    Summary: Every year Minerva contemplates retiring, but the year all the Weasleys show up at Hogwarts may be the one that makes her finally do it.

  • Settle by [livejournal.com profile] mindabbles, James Sirius/Teddy, NC-17
    Summary: James has never wanted to settle down – or maybe he’s never wanted to settle.

  • She Loves Him by [livejournal.com profile] katie_flint, Katie/Marcus, G
    Summary: Marcus shouldn’t be bothering by finding Wood in the kitchen with his wife, but he is. And he shouldn’t worry when his wife tells him the man’s recently divorced, but he does. It’s when he spots her talks to the Ministry’s divorce wizard, Percy Weasley, that he can’t ignore the signs any longer…

  • Snape's Nose by [livejournal.com profile] lilyeyes, Severus/Harry, NC-17
    Summary: It's Harry and Snape's X years anniversary and after years and years of being badgered about if what they say about men with big noses is true Harry will tell the truth.

  • Those Old Vows by [livejournal.com profile] pollyweasley, Harry/Draco, NC-17
    Summary: Dubhe absolutely hates her grandfathers’ house. It’s old, there’s no Wi-Fi and no electricity. She was causing problems after school, but it was entirely her father’s fault. She didn’t need to be punished to live with old, boring and conservative people. Harry and Draco, on the other side, were more than happy to have their oldest grandchild with them. Maybe they could show her that being old doesn’t mean being bad.

  • Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by [livejournal.com profile] gracerene, Ginny/Luna, NC-17
    Summary: Her shoulder always ached when it rained.

He's never wanted to settle down, really, it's not because he's been in love with his married best mate for 30+ years. But Teddy's single now, and all those suppressed feelings are beginning to resurface.
