The Future Is Unwritten by anon @ [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays Harry/Draco [NC-17] (25k)
Summary: Harry and Draco are flung forward in time to find that life has moved on without them. As they navigate through the changes, they have to find their own roles in a new world. Will they find that they would be happier together?
This is a WONDERFUL fic. The writing is gorgeous and the plot is brilliantly carried out. 25k but not a bloated sort of fic that I felt should have been trimmed. It's tight and fast paced, but never cheated the real challenges that Harry faced losing twenty years of his life. An excellent read.


Also! Guessing Poll at [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays. I've got a fic in there somewhere. ;)

I swear I just cannot shut up today, all nervous energy or something.

Anyway, I found folded up in my notebook an [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays fic that I had printed out and stuffed there to read while I was travelling and then obviously forgot about. Makes me wonder what other bits of fics I have hidden places...

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Summary: Too short a time in paradise.
Rating: PG
Warning(s): Angst.
Epilogue compliant? Yes.
Word Count: ~7,300
Please read the warning. I did NOT! But alas, the fic was incredible. The imagery was fantastic. The writing crisp and poetic (well those two don't usually go together, but that's what comes to mind, not wordy but the words that were chosen were very said.) The fic delicately ripped my heart to shreds. I forgive it, because it was really beautifully done. But, yeah... read the warning. :D

Er... so I said I was done. I lied.

I was up waaaaaaaaaaay too late last night reading this. But I was laughing too hard to sleep.
Honestly, I had printed this fic and placed it aside for a couple days because the warnings scared me a little, but it was recced by a couple people I trust so I picked it up and gave it a chance.

FTW!LMFAO!Srsly.

Ok, so it's not for everyone. By OMG! it is totally great for me and my quirky little sense of humour. :D
I just accepted that the author chose to go with a certain style of speak, a certain type of characterization that simply is not JKR's and yet... Who the fuck cares about such things when the fic is incredibly enjoyable. The warnings are valid. But the OOCness is not sloppy, careless writing. It makes for a unique fic that had me actually laughing out loud. Crack is not always my 'thing' but this one is done in a way that knocked my socks off. Give it a try.

Winter Holiday Fest Recs – Post IX

Please note the disclaimer about my recs. As well, all previous recs can be found under my WinterHolidayFests tag.

My last set of recs before reveals, I think. There have been a few fics that were heavy on the angst posted this week. You likely won’t find them here. I wasn’t in the mood to read anything heart-wrenching and there was plenty happy stuff to pick from.

You will think once you read my recs, that I was awfully free with the ♥s this round. But the last group of fics posted have truly been astonishing and should not be missed. This fandom has a group of incredibly talented and diverse artists and writers and this fest really brings out the best in everyone. If you were looking for me to help you choose which 20-30k fic to read, you are out of luck. Read them all. They are fabulous. :D

I had a free moment today so I threw this set of recs together.

This will be the last post before Christmas eats all my time. I likely won’t be posting any recs for at least a week.

I missed my Sunday post - in the spirit of Christmas, the little ones thoughtfully shared their cold - and so this rec post was becoming ridiculously long. Instead of overloading you with one post of 15 recs, I’ve decided to do two posts today. This one will be only art. The next will be only fic.

This rec post is a day early and still rather… long… with a sick kid I tend to spend nearly 24/7 in a rocking chair with nothing to do but read and take his temperature. So I’ve read through plenty of fics recently. (And haven’t commented on any. I will get to that! Promise.)

If I have recced you and not yet commented, I'm so sorry! I will try to get caught up on commenting this week. *fails*

I do not always read everything in the order they were posted, so the order here will not match either.

December is here and our flists are FLOODED with fics. (I’ve been scrolling through and whimpering a bit to be honest). I’ll be making some sort of attempt at following [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays and [livejournal.com profile] hp_yule_balls. I’ll be keeping my eyes on a few others but …wow… lots of fest are postings right now! Not to mention the advent drabbles.

I will post my recs twice a week (usually Thursday and Sunday). There are also lots of other people reccing from the holiday fests. For plenty more recs, check out: [livejournal.com profile] annafugazzi, [livejournal.com profile] bryoneybrynn, [livejournal.com profile] ravenqueen55, [livejournal.com profile] romaine24, [livejournal.com profile] frayach, [livejournal.com profile] rickey_a (flocked or open on IJ), and [livejournal.com profile] frantic_mice (flocked).

Onto the fest recs:
Winter Holiday Fest Recs – Post I )
marguerite_26: (HP VK as Harry)
Is it December 1st yet? That's when the floodgates open and the holiday fests starting pouring in.

I'll be following [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays, [livejournal.com profile] harry_holidays, and [livejournal.com profile] hp_yule_balls for the next month. I will try to read evey hd_hols and the other two it will depend on pairings/warnings/summaries.

I'll be posting my recs (with ♥s) every Thursday and Sunday depending on how many recs I have. As usual, I'll include a couple lines about why I liked the fic and why you should read it. :D

They will all be cut-tagged to avoid annoying you, and I'll use an lj-tag so they are easy to find later.

If you read a fic you really liked that didn't make my rec, please let me know. There are going to be A LOT of fics coming in the next bit and I'm going to miss some, I'm sure.

Any questions? Special requests?
