Somehow, I only just this week got around to reading Floriography, by Endrina (an epilogue for the ‘Secret Language of Plants’ series). Pretty sure I was smiling and happy sighing all the way through. Harry returned home at the age when most people start thinking about leaving.

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!).

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 […]
