(no subject)

Dear friends, lovers, and compatriots!

I'm soon going to be experiecing a boring stay in the hospital for 4 days. No worries. Nothing serious. Except for the whole "boring" part. Boredom is serious business.

While I still identify with fandom, I haven't actually read more than 2-3 fanfics in the past 2-3 years. Curious! So, rather than skim through years of text, I was wondering if any of you could -- off the top of your heads, of course -- think of any rather magnificent, populuar, well-written, entertaining, and/or altogether wonderful works of fic that have been published in that time. Anything standard and well-kown would be grand, as it is cetain I've never heard of it. This little head of mine is full of cobwebs. Fill it with fafic joy?

The old prefs: Harry/Draco; Harry/Snape; and -- as I believe it is customary to acknowledge nowadays? -- prologue compatibility is NOT strictly neccessary. :)

Many thanks.

PS: If anyone is in need of a beta-reader soon, I might also be interested in taking on a small project of that sort while I'm away.

The two at the top of my head:

The Potter-Malfoy Problem by who_la_hoop - highly recommended, 'cause it reads like oldschool H/D yet remains HBP/DH-compilant. A lot fun, and it's seriously...hot. :P

And then there's Lamp in the Cooling Room by libby_drew - the tone of this one is almost exact opposite of the one rec'd above, and I suppose I should warn for it - but it's also singularly one of the most popular and well-received fest fic around. If nothing else, you have to read this.

This is not to say there aren't other tremendously great fic out there, of course. These two just happened to be fresh in my mind.

This is so very helpful! I'm going to download both for my stay. Thanks muchly.

Anything by mad_martha/marthas_library! Though I'm not sure if she's done much Harry/Draco. There's always The Mirror of Maybe, which is still unfinished (Harry/Snape). Other than that, I can't think of anything that really fits into your Wants. I've written stuff recently! But that was Draco/Neville, alas. Hm.

Ah, man. I remember the Mirror of Maybe! Good stuff. Too bad I've lost track of all those WiPs I used to read. Chances are most remain unfinished, but perhaps some reached their comclusions! Thanks for the suggestions.

I say read 'Snatch', a novel by didntyoupotter. I do not want to summarize, as I might do more harm than good but I really recommend it. Here is the link.


*Pairing, Harry/Draco*

You might want to check out 'Irresistible Poison', by Rhysenn. Also a Drarry fiction, amazingly captivating and the characters are just so real, not to mention their relationship is not rushed into.


Have a good day \o/

Hi, I read your fic "A Balancing Art" and I just absolutely love it. So angsty and drama-filled. :) Friended you to see if you have any upcoming works in process.
