Story title: silence.death.

Link to story: silence.death. (M)

Reason for nominating: So I can't think about a story more deserving than this one. Kayla has beautifully written this piece, the topic is so sensitive but she does it justice. It's amazing how she explores the topic in such detail with such wonderful bright imagery. You can feel Remus' pain in this piece,  It's such an emotional one-shot and the ending just ruined me. It's engaging, interesting and thought provoking piece. I feel like I'm not doing it justice with my words but if you haven't you need to read her story!

Archive name: dreamgazer220

Story title: Haunting Shadows

Link to story: Here (M)

Reason for nominating: Jill is the angsty character queen, and this story is definitely one of her darker ones. She explores the relationships between so many different characters in this story, where every character feels so real and brings their own problems and conflicts into the story, leaving you on the edge of your seat.

Story title: Gods Without Grace

Link to story: +click [Mature]

Reason for nominating: A time-travel fic, taking us back to the time in the First Wizarding War Era where Tom Riddle attends Hogwarts as a student, which features Hermione Granger who loses her memories. Oh yes, yes, yes! This is a twisted, dark, and angsty fic and I loved every second of it. The quality of the story, itself, was positively stunning! As Hermione is sucked into an utter debacle of the utter, terrifying darkness that is Tom Riddle while struggling with her amnesia, the plot is intense and keeps you right on the edge of your seat.  I promise, once you start reading it, you will not be able to put it down. Hermione's characterization, given her position, was done so thoughtfully and Tom Riddle's characterization was simply on point--terrifying, dark, twisted, cruel, and manipulative. Amazing job.

Archive name: MuggleMaybe

Story title: Beyond Repair (T)

Link to story: Lily / Petunia (T)

Reason for nominating: When I look back this story, I feel sad remembering Lily's deep emotion, attachment to Petunia. Renee expressed how Lily tried doing anything to please her sister and Petunia's complicated feeling towards her sister who lived in a different world (the magical world), her jealous heart and her affection for Lily.

Story title: This Misery Will Suffice

Link to story: M

Reason for nominating: There are so many layers to this story! Olivia weaves together Astoria's life over the course of many years in a way that builds her fears and anxiety into something with deeper (and more painful) meaning. It's an absolutely amazing one-shot, and I can't recommend it strongly enough.

Story title: Love, Not War

Link to story: Mature

Reason for nominating: I’ve been meaning to read this for a while, and I’m so glad I finally have started it. I’m only a few chapters in, and already there have been moments that have affected me, and have stayed with me hours after reading it. There’s this ominous tone as you read, that makes the angst truly come alive, where you can physically feel it. Even from the very beginning, it’s dark and packed with such amazingly written angst. I cannot recommend this story highly enough and truly believe it deserves the recognition.

Story title: to the end of time

Link to story: +here (M)

Reason for nominating: I feel like anyone who's read this story will just know instantly why I've nominated it. Claire is TORTURING US with such an intense slow burn and there's so many genuinely heart-wrenching moments in this story. It's really beautifully written and it's impossible not to feel for Parvati when her emotions are described so poignantly.
