supes_ @ 11:31 pm: Since this community's still pretty new...
Just thought I'd make a little suggestion for improvement, if that's ok. Hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting something that's not a rec.

Anyway, I thought it might be good to organize the past recs in the community memories, say by pairing and/or main character. That way, if someone wants to search through the archives for something specific, it would be easy to do so. It's something I believe would be quite useful.

Anyone else think this is a good idea?

By the way, this is a great subject for a community. Yey for good chapter fics.
I just joined, but I'm sure I'll really enjoy it here. ^^

(Oh and, if anyone cares for introductions, I'm Supergirl. Or Supes. Or Anna. Or... yeah, I'll shut up now.)

gifted_dream @ 05:16 pm: A few recs

I've got a few recs:

Title: The Broken Victory

katers007 (Kate Lynn)

Summary: 'There is no such thing as darkness; only a failure to see.' What drove Hogwarts' most brilliant student to become its greatest foe? Here, the lines between choice and destiny, evil and misguidance, defeat and victory fade from sight. Step into a mind that has failed to see past the darkness, and watch the chilling memories that were poured into Tom Riddle's diary resurface... (PG-13)

This is a must-read for all Tom Riddle fans. Kate Lynn's characterization of him is impeccable.

Title: Harry Potter and the Society of Orpheus and Bacchus

Author: A.L. de Sauveterre

Summary: As a fifteen year-old wizard, Harry has a lot on his mind: homework, Quidditch, girls, and oh, yes… his mortal enemy, Voldemort. The war against the Dark Lord escalates beyond the castle walls, while strange unexplained occurrences begin to plague the students and faculty. Experience has taught Harry, Ron and Hermione to expect the unexpected as they investigate. But nothing has prepared them for the surprising choices, shifting loyalties and shocking events that will alter their lives forever… (An epic fifth year tale packed with mayhem--romantic and otherwise--involving Harry, Ron, Draco, Hermione, Ginny, Neville, Fred and George, Snape, Sirius--need I go on?) (R)

That one is not yet completed but still it's worth the read! Ships include: R/Hr, S/OFC, D/G, H/G

That's all for now

nairolie @ 08:23 pm: Hello and a few recs
Here are just a few must reads:

Sunday Bloody Sunday An incredibly depressing but amazingly well written future fic.

Never Alone Never Again A fifth year fic, AU since the release of Order of the Phoenix. Another angsty one, but again, very well written.

Draco Malfoy the Amazing Bouncing Rat I don't know of many people who haven't read this, but if you're one of the few you should definitely check it out. It'll give you a good laugh and help you recover after reading the previous two. :)

A Matter of Honor SS/HG a definite classic, this fic handles the relationship in one of the most tasteful and realistic ways I've seen.

That seems like enough for now. All four of these are complete so you don't have to worry about getting really interested in one of them and having it never be finished. Enjoy!

metalchik13 @ 07:55 pm: STORYTIME!!!

Hi, everyone. I just wanted to post some Harry Potter fics on here, considering no one really knows about them. So if you're bored, I have a few written.

I get writer's block sometimes, so its not always what I picture, but I suggest you all check them out.

remmies_pants @ 01:52 pm: Hello
Hiya, I'm Reiko. I am currently writing a Harry/Draco fic in which Draco is teaching Harry some dark magic and they are working on a plan to defeat Voldie. They start out as enemies, then friends, then lovers. Quite a nice Action/Adventure/Romance story.I'll post it when I get atleast three chaps done.

ashleyisbest @ 03:07 pm: Some Recs For You
Hello everyone! I'm Ashley. *waves* I've got some fabulous recommendations for all of you.


Beautiful World by Cinnamon

This story is gorgeous. A short synopsis: Harry is going to die on his birthday, but falls in love with Draco before. Their love is so beautiful in this story you can practically reach out and grab it. It's gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I read this story and was nearly bawling for the majority of it, but in a good way. It's one of those stories that just doesn't leave you right after you read it, you know?

Beneath You, also by Cinnamon

This is another gorgeous story. Draco steals the journal that Harry, Ron, and Hermione all write in, and then Harry and Draco have a secret correspondence. There are excellent Voldemort details in here, and more beautiful Harry/Draco love. This is another fabulous story. I love Cinnamon.

All Bets Are Off by Allegra

This is wonderful. Harry is the playboy of Hogwarts, and there's a bet that he can't go without sex for thirty days. Everyone is trying to get him to lose, and by everyone, I mean everyone. You'll love the way Harry and Draco's relationship plays out.

Blood Magic by Gateway Girl

This is a response to the Severitus challenge, in which Snape is Harry's father. It's great. Their relationship is not superficial or suddenly wonderful, and the reactions of Harry's friends are also great. All possible problems with Severus being Harry's dad are covered, and it's definitely worth reading. Work In Progress.

Lord of Shadows

Another Work In Progress, but updated quite regularly. Draco is going to be manipulated by Voldemort into marrying him and carrying his heir, but he wants to get out of it and has to get Harry to agree to it. It's really good. It sounds kind of cliche by the title, but it's most definitely not. One of my favorite aspects of this one is how Harry and Draco communicate in the beginning-Draco, invisible on his broomstick in the yard of Privet Drive, writes down questions that Harry answers. Another wonderful part is the beginning and ending of each chapter, which is full of quotes from books written in the future by Harry, Draco, and other important characters about the goings on of these times. An excellent story.

Anyway, those are my recs for now. Enjoy them.

dragynville @ 08:02 pm: 3 of my favorite wips!
Second Chances by Kishijoten. WIP, Draco/Harry, a dozen years after Hogwarts, all grown up and getting to know who the other has become, then falling in love. Draco's a single father, Harry's a teacher at Hogwarts, but the kids don't overwhelm the story. Has a good dose of angst too. (R)

Harry wakes up in a mental hospital and is told he's been in a sort of waking coma for six years but, everytime he falls asleep, he wakes up in the other reality. And both are equally desirable to him. Which is the real world and which is the fantasy? (R)

Stealing Harry by copperbadge. WIP, Sirius/Remus, an AU what-if story that explores how Harry's life might be different if you changed one single pivotal event. Has the most engaging child-Harry I've ever read. (NC17 & PG versions)

switchknife @ 11:31 am: Slash must-reads. (This installment: Harry/Draco and Severus/Harry.)
Harry/DracoCollapse )

Severus/HarryCollapse )

underlucius @ 12:02 am: A few novellas
Just a bit about me. I like my fiction to be on the literary side, if a eupemism can be used, then I like it to be

The Way of the World by scribbulus_ink i'm sure everyone has read this, but if not, don't miss it. Remus leaves the wizarding world and settles down quite nicely in a secluded village. 3 years later, Snape arrives on his doorstep and says "teach me how you did it." much hilarity ensues, toasters melt, Snape learns what colours suit him, sausages, The Sims, hair washing and watch Remus become obsessed with Snape's long long... legs. NC-17 in the last chapter, it's beautiful fluff all the way, and marvellous banter. dont miss it.

Aristeia (a warrior's finest moment) by Eumenides1 This was written for the Classic Canon Challenge(there are many novel sized fics on there already but with over 100 participants and a week left I am leaving it until the first wave is over.)
Aristeia is based on Homer's Iliad, Sirius (Achilles) and James (Patroclus) and Moody as Agamemnon. In either canon, the end is not happy, so buy tissues, but don't miss it. 7 chapters

and finally - self pimpage because I wrote a HP Novella - go me.

Green Lights by underlucius written for the Classic Canon Challenge - The Great Gatsby - Malfoy style
A tale of a lost generation. Harry and his friends have won but why? Malfoy is still alive, under house arrest and as someone is sent to observe him, the narrator is drawn into a spiral of self destruction and perversion that can only have one conclusoin. 10 chapters.

Oh God. How could I have forgotten SILVERVERSE. by fearlessdiva a new world in Potterdom. A series of stories (HP/DM centric, but if you are not a fan of that pairing DO NOT let that put you off. Neither am I but this is so beautiful, so sublime you will adore every silver moment. Trust me.
