    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!
  12. The Broadway Musical Song Challenge! Welcome to the results blog post for the second challenge I've hosted here on HPFT The premise of this challenge was rather straightforward -- incorporate a song from a Broadway musical into a fic, whether that be in true songfic form or moreso as inspiration for the fic overall.

    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*

    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

      Question that I think I joke-asked you but didn't actually ask you - are platonic!Dramiones okay, or is this a purely romantic!Dramione challenge? (Latter is totally fine, obv! Just double-checking.)

    3. Renacerá


      I think we'll still with romantic!Dramione since searching "Draco/Hermione" as a pairing was how I was inspired to create the challenge! :)  But I'm still 100% reading your platonic!Dramione story!

      Is a Muggle AU okay? If not, I can alter it slightly. Just thought I’d check before I post it. :)

    The Dramione Challenge | 1 May 2019

    I have been working on them and I THINK I have both my completed chapters in the queue. Can I do a third chapter for it? Is there a limit on that?
  21. Simplicius


    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.

    Original Fiction

    Title: Bruises and Sweet SpotsAuthor: @Jo RaskophLink(s):+Bruises and Sweet Spots (All Audiences)Length / Completed: 1617 words/CompletedEra: Original FictionGenre(s): Drama, Romance Advisories: major character deathSummary: "Magda met Leo when she was seventeen; she would lose him six years later, but she didn't know that then. All she knew was that his eyes sparkled when he winked at her over the bucket of apricots she handed him." Reasons for Recommending: Jo wrote this story for the first round of the Great Collab, and it is honestly just so beautiful. Despite it being a shorter piece, she paints an incredibly full and compelling picture of the relationship between the two main characters, Magda and Leo, which she imbedded into the theme of harvest and fruit picking. I particularly loved how vividly every scene is fleshed out - Jo paid a lot of attention to detail, and I especially loved her use of colours!
