    Rare Pairs

    Title: A crush of freaks and Muggle filth Author: @Felpata_Lupin Link(s): +here Length / Completed: 2895 words/complete Pairing(s): Regulus Black/Petunia Evans Genre(s): AU, Fluff, Humor, Romance, Parody Summary: Reasons for recommending: Honestly, Regulus/Petunia isn't a pairing that I ever would have thought of, but Chiara managed to write it in a way that, even if it was silly, funny, and ridiculous, also really conveyed why these two characters might actually be a decent match! Although they're worlds apart from one another, Chiara also shows the ways in which they're alike, and has them overcome - of sorts, anyway - the obstacle of their own world view and prejudice!

    Siblings

    Title: the shopping list Author: @esmeraude Link(s): here+ Length / Completed: 933 words / complete Genre(s): Humor, Fluff Summary: The shopping list pinned to the kitchen door of Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place, reveals far more about the Potter children than their parents would like you to know. Reasons for Recommending: Have you laughed today? If not, absolutely read this story. Isobel has captured one of the funniest portrayals of the Next-Gen kids that I've ever read, and she's done it in a completely unique way. I've never seen anything written how this story is. Each character has a totally personal voice and they're all amazing. I laughed out loud so many times. Check it out! *for Hufflepuff Hopscotch, Team Black*

    Original Fiction

    Title: the final calm Author: @sihaya Link(s): here+ Length / Completed: 1116 words / complete Genre(s): General Summary: This is what death looks like. Reasons for Recommending: I don't know if there are words for how beautiful this story is. I've recommended it to so many people in the months since I've read it, and I still find myself bringing it up again and again. This story will rip your heart out. If you've experienced loss or grief, even more so. But it's also a story of love and light. It's stunning, and I cannot recommend it enough. *for Hufflepuff Hopscotch, Team Black*
  8. Renacerá

    Draco Malfoy/Hermione Granger

    How have I not come by to recommend this story yet? Title: Life as We Know It Author: @Slytherinchica08 Link(s): here+ Length / Completed: 21,155 words / 7 chapters (WIP) Genre(s): Angst, Romance Summary: The wizarding world is torn apart by war, yet even whilst the battle lines are being drawn, two people strike up an unlikely friendship. Could it be that a war designed to pull people apart is responsible for pushing Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger together? Reasons for Recommendation: Erica was one of my first HP-fandom friends who also loves Dramione! She's such a great writer, and this slow-burn will change the minds of even the most stubborn Dramione non-fans out there. In what she's written so far, she's introduced so many canon elements of the series and been able to mix them with her unique characterizations and plot. Draco and Hermione are both so well written, and their story absolutely captured my attention. After the explosive chapter 7 that was recently posted, I can't wait to see what happens next! *for Hufflepuff Hopscotch, Team Black

    Thunderbirds

    I was hooked on the 90s reruns of Captain Scarlet as a kid, so I absorbed a lot of Thunderbirds through osmosis (clips and toys mostly). I remember getting a diecast collection of each vehicle for one birthday or Christmas. I also still have a Virgil doll that my mother won for me in a grab machine. I didn't like the live-action film but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the reboot (though it didn't keep my interest since I was never a super-fan). My favourite character was/is John Tracy.

    Next Gen Teachers

    reviving this thread nearly a year later to throw in my two cents ✌ i typically create new characters to teach at hogwarts during the next gen's time, simply because we only get a small insight into hogwarts students/alumni throughout the books so it's plausible to have someone completely brand new teach. that being said, i do sometimes cherrypick harry's contempories to teach at hogwarts although i have to admit i haven't put as much thinking into it as some of yous some people i've used in various published and unpublished fics: - cho chang (although nowadays i don't think this would occur. i feel like she would want to lead a happy life away from hogwarts.) - susan bones - anthony goldstein - zabini - this isn't a specific someone, but in one fic of mine i headcanoned that history of magic NEWT students often have guest speakers in or actual people teaching them units they specialised in. a bit of a fun idea to throw out there my headmistress/headmaster can change. sometimes it's mcgonagall, sometimes it's someone completely new. i've never considered sprout for some reason. i think she's close to mcgonagall in age (can't remember where i saw that) so if mcg's too old, i'd assume sprout would soon follow haha i love the thought of harry being a teacher too! i feel like being an auror was a shiny profession to him when he was in fifth year, but after all the death eaters are rounded up, he'd want a quieter life. and maybe stay on call in the event of something serious starting up again - sort of like dumbledore actually. and having that sort of positive influence in kids' lives while they're at hogwarts would do a lot of good in the long run, i feel. i love the thought of dean being the dada professor! i never considered it before but it works really well.

    victoria_anne's reviews

    Story and Author Name, including link: Der Traumfaeger by Aphoride Warnings and Advisories: None Genre: Angst, Drama, Romance Length: One-shot (2.5k) Summary: Ships: Albus/Gellert Areas of Concern: This is the first thing in a loooong time that I've written which has a limited word count (limited to 2.5k, by External Forces, lol), so I'm wondering if it feels completed and like it fits within the word count limit? Does the dreamwalking concept come across well enough or is it too vague? What do you think of the plot (well, what there is of it ) and the concept in general? Also, any thoughts you have on the characters/relationship/writing in general is brilliant too Thank you in advance!

    The More Than A Stereotype Challenge--July 1 2019

    So, I saw this Challenge and thought, "No, Noelle, you don't need to sign up for another Challenge. And you don't have an idea anyway." And then I went and washed some dishes--I have a lot of ideas when I'm washing dishes--and got an idea. So here I am. Count me in as a taker with an OF work taking on the stereotype: 'Stay-at-home-moms are dumb, lazy, unproductive members of society, etc.' Thanks for hosting this intriguing Challenge!

    I Love my Love with an A

    Mmmm....Duxelles... I love my love with an E because he is Earnest, I hate my love with an E because he is Evil (alas). His name is Eric, he comes from Edwardsville, and I gave him an Earmuff.

    StarFeather's Review for Multi-chap Stories

    I really enjoyed your review on chapter 5! I'd love your thoughts on chapter 6, which I did some rewriting/restructuring on. Thank you! Story, Author Name, and Link: Moonlight by Noelle Zingarella Chapter 6  Fandom: Harry Potter Warnings/Advisories: Consent Issues (Mild/Moderate), Derogatory Language, Domestic Abuse, Hate Speech, Sexual Content, Spoilers, Substance Abuse, Violence   Genre: Action/Adventure, Angst, Romance Length: Novel (currently at 57962 words) Main Characters: OC (Miranda Rose), Severus Snape, Albus Dumbledore, Lucius Malfoy Ships: Snape/OC  Summary: A Comedy of Errors about an Unstoppable Force meeting an Immovable Object: Miranda Rose had always enjoyed more than her share of good luck, which served her well in avoiding the consequences of her frequently impulsive behavior. But when her penchant for risk-taking leads her into the middle of a war—and an entanglement with the enigmatic Severus Snape—her luck may not be enough to save her.
