FYI: this is the series that ate last weekend (oops) and a not insignificant portion of this week (no great loss). But I thoroughly enjoyed it! (I also skipped all the way to the end *really* early on, just to check. Look, it’s important to me to know what I’m getting into before I get […]

Future’s Past, by darkseraphina This one reads like a completely enjoyable regency romance novel (absolutely intended to be a compliment, as someone who loves a good regency romance!). All of the Tragic Past pretty much wraps up after the first few chapters, and from then on it is all Enjoyable Correspondence and Strolling in the […]

Harry Potter again! A post-War fic where Harry moves in with Andromeda to help with Teddy. The Years Before Love, by Lomonaaeren Today is rain, and a second cup of tea without nasty potions in it, and Andromeda talking softly to him about her own childhood—it was hemlock, but otherwise his guesses about what plants […]

Sometimes it’s just nice to go back and hang out in the Harry Potter fandom. In Which Harry is Magnetic North and Draco Is An Idiot, by bryoneybrynn Potter waved a dismissive hand at him. “That part’s not hard. Just Floo them up and say, ‘Hello, I know we haven’t spoken in ten years and […]

Slithering, by astolat Set immediately after the war — I really liked seeing the recovery from Draco’s perspective. Also another fascinating take on Narcissa Malfoy, one of my fandom faves. “So.” Harry paused and stared at him through the gates, evidently at a loss when he couldn’t yell and stamp his foot any longer.

(Sometimes it’s so nice to drop back into the fic world of Harry Potter!) Stately Homes of Wiltshire, by waspabi Potter looked almost surprised to see him, the idiot. He had visited Draco’s home, whomever else could he possibly expect? “Hello,” Potter said, with an aborted half-wave. Thin winter sunlight gleamed off his high cheekbones, […]

Harry Potter and the Incredibly Organized Personal Assistant, by megyal Best exchange: Harry thumped his head on the table again, even as Malfoy rose to his feet and sailed to the entry door, pulling it open to bellow, “You lot go home! I’m hired! Get away now, you’re all worthless.” “You know, I’ve never liked […]

Harkening back to fandoms of yesteryear with a Harry Potter rec! It Takes a Village, by Saras_Girl Eighth year isn’t exactly going to plan. Harry is definitely not running away, Draco is definitely not impressed, and it’s almost definitely not going to stop raining. [with special thanks to jerakeen, who’s been pinboarding HP fics lately!]

memorable quote Monday

Monday, September 21st, 2015

The journey back to find the context for some of the quotes that stick with me is sometimes a bit of a facepalm situation. I remembered this one mostly as having to do with hiding? Definitely something about hiding, and then confronting Peter (presumably with an angry tone!). The thought passed through Harry’s mind that […]
