Title: Inconsolable, or How Harry Potter Stopped H8ing and Learned to Love Video Games
Pairing: Harry/Draco, secondary Harry/Ginny, tertiary Harry/Ron/Hermione (sort of)
Warnings: epilogue compliance, somewhat facetious treatment of addiction-related issues, gratuitous bandom references, and utter ridiculousness
Word Count: ~10,600
Summary: Harry Potter really sucks at video games. Draco Malfoy just sucks.I don't follow video games. I had to read H8ing several times before I understood what it meant. *g* Don't let that turn you off. This fic is brilliantly funny and yet poignant and HOT. I'm chuckling to myself as I'm trying to figure out what else to say without being spoilery. Needless to say: go read, be entertained.
Title: Sly Quill
Pairings: Draco/Harry. Other couples implied. Appearances by Ron and Luna.
Warnings: None, EWE.
Word count: 9770
Summary: An anonymous person has been writing embarrassingly revealing articles. Harry goes on a quest to discover who the mystery reporter is, and in the end, discovers important things about himself.Sly Quill is a devious and very well informed gossip columnist who plays with the fates of pretty much everyone. Harry become obsessed with finding out who 'sly quill' is and Draco happily helps him out. The UST is fantastic and the smut… yummy. A funny, feel-good fic and had me grinning all the way through.
Title: Pour Faire un Choix To Make a Choice
Warnings: EWE, Language, flangst, hurt/comfort
Word count: 9,601
Summary: Life is all about choices. Some, you can only make for yourself.Ouch. Oh man, this fic made me ache. I'm not big on angst but this was such a good ache I could read this fic over and over. In the first scene we are thrown into Harry's heartache: an invite to Draco and OFC wedding. The backstory had me weeping and I don't think I stopped throughout the fic. But the best part is that while I was reading I never doubted that Harry and Draco were meant to be and could overcome this. The writing was a perfect balance of hurt and romance.
Title: Scenes From a Remarkable Marriage by Minerva McGonagall
Pairings: Severus/Hermione, past Ron/Hermione
Warnings: AU, complete disregard for DH, character death (not Snape or Hermione), miscarriage
Word count: approx 8,600
Summary: To most people, Hermione Granger and Severus Snape were an unlikely couple. But Minerva McGonagall had been in a position to know them both well, and saw what others could not.This is a well done Snape/Hermione. It's an AU, that does not follow DH at all. Hermione is needed to help with potion making at Hogwarts, leaving it open for her and Snape to get to know each other at a different level. When she finds herself in a very difficult situation, Snape offers his help and the romance truly begins. It is very sweet and romantic. ETA!!! And many of these contain fabulous art by Oldenuf and Raitala! Srsly, fanatastic art in these fics. Woot!
