Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

Okay, this is going to get long and probably take me forever, because I don't make things easy for myself and bookmark hardly ever but here goes.

Firstly, I've been incredibly remiss to gush publicly with the bounty that has been my fest season. I know recs for gift fic are taken with a grain of salt, I mean, how could I not love something written for me specifically, right? But firstly, recs are always subjective and secondly, a fic shouldn't be punished just because it was written for me, yes?

Fics written for me, but you'll enjoy too... probably:

♥ From [ profile] daily_deviant's Kinky Kristmas:

When I Practiced Flirting with You Harry/Ron (NC-17 honestly, even the summary is NC-17, but it's Kinky Kristmas, what do you expect?)
Summary: Ron gasps and a desperate moan escapes his throat as Harry swallows him down. "Merlin, Harry. I didn't know you could talk like that."

a;sljfasl;fkjsl;fkj MY BOYS! Friends to Lovers (especially these two knuckleheads) will always be a favorite of mine. As is Enemies to NEEEEED as illustrated by the second gift at Kinky (what I ever did to deserve two wonderful stories, I'll never know).

Moonbeam, in the Palm of his Hand Snupin NC-17
Summary: With the memory of an encounter in the distant past still all too fresh on his mind, Remus goes outside to watch the moon and finds himself in the same spot once more, with Severus Snape by his side.


♥ From [ profile] hoggywartyxmas:

The Sexual Education of Magical Flowers Snape/Neville and a little bit of Neville/Luna (R)
Summary: Neville’s plants need just a little hands-on demonstration.

alsfjasl;fjaslfj This is just on the right side of cracktastic! The relationships are so fun! But the flowers and the mulch (yes, that's right, THE MULCH) sort of steal the show. Definitely read if you need a laugh.

♥ From Yuletide:

ah, but it's cold outside (1341 words) by TaffySinclair
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sirens (TV 2014)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Brian Czyk/Valentina "Voodoo" Dunacci
Additional Tags: Asexual Character, Asexual Relationship

Brian's leaving town. Voodoo's surprised to discover that she actually cares.

♥ A great character study on one of the only openly ace characters on television. Pity the show only lasted two seasons.

Non-Gift fic From HP Fests:

Yes, people who aren't me also got great fics written for them, hard to believe, but true. ;)

♥ From Kinky Kristmas:

Unquestionable; Unforgivable Dumbledore/Grindewald
Summary: His eyes drifted absently around his too-small bedroom, the ceiling rafters gathering dust that he couldn't be bothered to clean, which floated down in shimmering motes, catching the amber-summer light. Aberforth's snoring and whimpers from Ariana's nightmares drifted up from the floor below. A cuckoo cried outside.

"Good morning, sleepyhead." The voice at the window startled Albus, and he sprung bolt-upright in his bed. The voice chuckled. "Oh, so jumpy today?"

Nine Ways of Looking at a Book Hermione/Minerva ♥Erotographomania, book kink ♥
Summary: Hermione has come back to Hogwarts to teach history. She finds herself looking to the future, too.

The Pickle Jar Harry/Pansy
Summary: When Pansy Parkinson shows up to dinner one night as Albus's date, Harry knows she's up to something. It takes him an embarrassingly long amount of time to figure out what.

I thought this would be a dirty, good time, but it actually had a lot of heart too! ♥

♥ From Hoggywartyxmas (which I am sooo very behind on!)

Love Hides in Familiar Faces Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape, Horace Slughorn, Filius Flitwick, Aurora Sinistra, various animals (GEN)
Summary: (author didn't leave one, but from the first bit of the fic) ...the fact is that certain animals do indeed acquire special powers, during one magical hour in the depth of the Winter Solstice, otherwise known as Longest Night.

Such lovely glimpses into the Professors of Hogwarts through their uh... familiars. ♥

Seasons of Love Pomona/Aberforth PG

Such a touching and quiet story about finding love late in life (relatively speaking for wizards) and about second chances. Loved every character and every relationship in this fic.

♥ One more Old School HP rec:

And since it wouldn't be a fic rec post without including something from the lovely that is [personal profile] redsnake05, and because someone had said something offhand about the Fat Lady and that reminded me of something from long ago...

Long ago I would NOT shut up about The FatLady and Sir Cadogen (I can't remember why now... well except for my deep, never ending love of the obscurest characters) so she wrote two AMAZING fics about them! Seriously,do yourself a favor and familiarize yourself with this talented author. ♥

And finally, two random fics from the 1st day of the Snowflake Challenge:

Incase these fandoms are your jam too, but you weren't paying nearly as much attention to the challenge as I was (seriously, I have soooooooooo many tabs open now of fic recs that I want to read) sadly, I've only gotten to these two... but seriously, they sort of set the bar high on the quality level. ;)

Snort! I can't say for certain that there is no coffee shop AU. But as of That Time We Did Fanfic Bingo and It Was Awesome, we did not.

There is a reason for that. The relationship between the two principle characters is so dependent on what happens to them during the course of the series that putting them in a totally different setting changes the dynamic entirely. Even our best writers can't pull it off, not in my humble opinion.

I don't know where to start!
Just as long as you save some time for my contributions to these fests said your ridiculously needy friend. ;)
